The Debate: Obama’s Affirmative-action Performance

Barack Obama speech 9 SC The Debate: Obama’s Affirmative action Performance

Hey, just blame it on Bush. The consensus on the presidential debate last night is that Barack Obama could resurrect the Choom Gang and star in a remake of Dazed and Confused. Conservative pundits are all aflutter with praise and liberals are all on Twitter with groans. Andrew Sullivan wrote, “Obama looked tired, even bored; he kept looking down; he had no crisp statements of passion or argument; he wasn’t there.” A very upset Michael Moore tweeted, “This is what happens when u pick John Kerry as your debate coach.” And million-dollar-donor Bill Maher chimed in, “Obama made a lot of great points tonight. Unfortunately, most of them were for Romney.” Well, don’t feel too bad, guys. At least he did slightly better than when he debated Clint Eastwood.

Chris Matthews, clearly perturbed that he’s lost that tingling feelin’, asked, “Where was Obama tonight? … What was he doing…?” Chris, he was doing what he always does: nothing well. It’s just that you’ve finally noticed.

And now, after the Denver dose of reality, can we finally put to bed the myth of Obama the intellectually gifted? Yeah, I know, after eight years of a media narrative about Bush the cranially compromised, it was easy to say that, hey, now we’re getting the smart guy. As Joe Biden put it, “I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that’s a storybook, man.” Or, at least, that’s the story by the book — of cultural affirmative action (CAA).

Let’s face it, folks, Obama was never all that impressive. This is the fellow who thought “Austrian” was spoken in Austria, that the USA built the “Intercontinental Railroad,” and that a corpsman was a “corpse-man.” And the only reason these and other scholarly gems didn’t make him a political corpse-man is that the media refused to open the storybook.

    What I saw during the debate was a shamed man. He knows he’s done a bad job and deserves to be fired. He knows he’s not going to get a second term.He knows he has to go before he’s impeached or tried for treason. I hope he and his ultimate welfare family are very happy in their affluent nieghborhood on that little Hawaiian prison island. Yes, Our tax dollars will make them very comfortable. They’re moving to waaaaay out there in the Pacific. I was hoping they would go to Kenya but Hawaii seems far enough. He can play “would be king” there. Start packing your bags moochie and don’t let mama steal the good silver. That belongs to the people of America.
