In many ways, Mr. Obama is the poster child for the young, unchallenged, and unproven wimps being created by the liberal nanny-state. Political correctness now orders that there are unlimited strikes in T-ball. No one can keep score. That everyone gets a trophy. That no one can be disciplined, called any names, or be held accountable for errors. Ever. — Douglas MacKinnon
According to the MailOnline, the Participation Trophy President was apparently the last person in America to figure out that Mitt Romney had rolled over him like a Sherman Tank hitting a Chevy Volt in their first debate.
When President Barack Obama stepped off the stage in Denver last week the 60 million Americans watching the debate against Mitt Romney already knew it had been a disaster for him.
But what nobody knew, until now, was that Obama believed he had actually won.
The Democrat said that Obama’s inner circle was dismayed at the ‘disaster’ and that he believed the central problem was that the President was so disdainful of Romney that he didn’t believe he needed to engage with him.
‘President Obama made it clear he wanted to be doing anything else – anything – but debate prep,’ the Democrat said. ‘He kept breaking off whenever he got the opportunity and never really focused on the event.
…The Democrat, who is aligned with the Obama campaign and has been an unofficial adviser on occasions, said that David Axelrod, Obama’s chief strategist, was stunned that the President left the stage feeling that he had won the debate.
So, if it looked like Barack Obama hadn’t done much prep for the debate, it was because he didn’t.
And why would he spend a lot of time preparing? For that matter, why wouldn’t he think that he won the debate?
If you look back at Barack Obama’s entire career, he has never been excellent at ANYTHING other than winning elections — and even most of his wins, from his Senate race against Alan Keyes to his practically impossible-to-lose race against John McCain, have had more to do with luck than skill. If you look back through Barack Obama’s entire career, from college, to his teaching days, to his time as a community organizer, his career in the Illinois State Senate, to his term in the United States Senate, to his career in the Oval Office, you won’t find one accomplishment that’s worth a bucket of warm spit other than killing Osama Bin Laden and the only way he could have screwed that up would have been by refusing to do it.
This is not a man who’s particularly competent, intelligent, charismatic, or exceptional in any way. He’s basically just a guy who used to seem pleasant enough and gave pretty good speeches — and he can’t even manage that any more. Yet, he’s treated like the Jackie Robinson of politics, he won a Nobel Peace Prize just for showing up, and he’s praised to the skies for everything he does. Despite the fact that Obama has had one of the least successful first terms of any President in history, if not THE LEAST SUCCESSFUL, the American people are even seriously considering giving him another bite at the apple.
So, when you’ve spent your whole life being graded on a Godzilla-sized curve, you start to assume you can do no wrong because you’re never judged on your performance. This time, because Barack Obama was in a close race for the same position against someone who’s smarter, much more accomplished, and much more competent than he is, he came off very badly indeed. Not only did Barack Obama do nothing in his first debate that showed he could handle the presidency, nothing in his first term or even in his entire life gives any indication that he’s up to the job. It is a classic case of a man who has spent his whole life collecting participation trophies just for showing up, being asked to perform — and not only did he fail miserably at it, he is so out of touch that he didn’t even realize it.
