Obama self destructed on stage and his base knows it.
They are in panic mode and I have a feeling things are going to get ugly.
Lefty Andrew Sullivan from the leftist site Daily Beast states his worries...
Seriously: has that kind of swing ever happened this late in a campaign? Has any candidate lost 18 points among women voters in one night ever?
And we are told that when Obama left the stage that night, he was feeling good. That's terrifying. On every single issue, Obama has instantly
plummeted into near-oblivion...
...But on the core issues of the economy and the deficit, Romney is now kicking the president's ass
Look: I'm trying to rally some morale, but I've never seen a candidate this late in the game, so far ahead, just throw in the towel in the way
Obama did last week - throw away almost every single advantage he had with voters and manage to enable his opponent to seem as if he cares about the
middle class as much as Obama does. How do you erase that imprinted first image from public consciousness: a president incapable of making a single
argument or even a halfway decent closing statement?
And his current view on Obama...
Too arrogant to take a core campaign responsibility seriously. Too arrogant to give his supporters what they deserve. If he now came out and said
he supports Simpson-Bowles in its entirety, it would look desperate, but now that Romney has junked every proposal he ever told his base, and we're in
mid-October, it's Obama's only chance on the economy....
...Or maybe, just maybe, Obama can regain our trust and confidence somehow in the next debate. Maybe he can begin to give us a positive vision of what
he wants to do (amazing that it's October and some of us are still trying to help him, but he cannot). Maybe if Romney can turn this whole campaign
around in 90 minutes, Obama can now do the same. But I doubt it. A sitting president does not recover from being obliterated on substance, style and
likability in the first debate and get much of a chance to come back. He has, at a critical moment, deeply depressed his base and his supporters and
independents are flocking to Romney in droves.
I almost feel sorry for them....almost.
this next paragraph is hilarious...truth hurts though doesn't it?
I've never seen a candidate self-destruct for no external reason this late in a campaign before. Gore was better in his first debate - and he
threw a solid lead into the trash that night. Even Bush was better in 2004 than Obama last week. Even Reagan's meandering mess in 1984 was better -
and he had approaching Alzheimer's to blame.
But fear not lefties, there is hope...
I'm not giving up. If the lies and propaganda of the last four years work even after Obama had managed to fight back solidly against them to get a
clear and solid lead in critical states, then reality-based government is over in this country again. We're back to Bush-Cheney, but more extreme. We
have to find a way to avoid that. Much, much more than Obama's vanity is at stake.
Maybe uncle Biden can pull you guys out of the mess you are in?
