THE UNRAVELING OF THE FAIRY TALE THAT IS (WAS) BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA
Once upon a time…
Following last week’s utter beat-down of Barack Obama by Mitt Romney and the subsequent fallout, a sense of tremendous satisfaction has arisen among conservative bloggers – that we’ve been right all along – and the satisfaction is nearly complete. What I’m sure appears to my liberal friends as “gloating” – following the demolition of the community organizer’s facade – a fight which would have been stopped in the third round were it a boxing match – is actually more of a mental fist-pumping reaction that says, “See – I knew it!” The vindication has been sweet.
Not only are the post-debate swings in poll results unprecedented, but the desperate scramble by the Regime to stop the bloodletting and put Humpty Dumpty back together again has been an astonishing thing to watch. Following the early pathetic excuses for O’s thumping, Team O seems to have settled on two equally-ridiculous explanations: Romney lied – and O hates debates.
Both of these claims, of course, are disingenuous at best. A quick Google search shows that while both candidates tossed out several questionable statistics (as candidates tend to do during these sorts of things), O’s claim that Mitt’s tax plan would cost $5 trillion was not correct – when all factors are considered. (Closing loopholes, limiting deductions and creating additional taxpayers.) Even O’s deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter was forced to admit as much. And – O’s claim that Mitt wants to create a healthcare “voucher” system for future retires is simply false.
The “O hates debates” excuse is almost as hysterical as was nimrod Gore’s theory that Denver’s high altitude may have thrown the community organizer off his game. Hell – we’ve been told for years that O is the most mesmerizing speaker ever to walk the planet. Funny, I don’t recall him hating debates in 2008, do you? Anyway, the real truth is this: O hates being Teleprompter-less. Yep, SCOTUS was painfully exposed as not being in the same league with TOTUS. Hilariously, many Obamabots thought it unfair that poor O wasn’t allowed to bring Mr. Teleprompter with him to the debate.
My absolute favorite part of the post-debate meltdown by liberals has been watching the reaction of the elitist jackasses – Tingles Matthews and Andrew Sullivan, for example -who’ve behaved as if life as they knew it were over. (Let’s hope they’re right.) Here’s Tingles’s epic meltdown. Not to be outdone, Sullivan’s column for the Daily Beast reads like a suicide note. Poor bastards – they never knew what hit ’em. Such a shame when the emperor is finally exposed, huh, boys?
One more note – and a word of encouragement for all the forlorn fans of O. Following Mitt’s commitment during last week’s debate that he would end funding for PBS – and Big Bird – Team O has released a new campaign ad – featuring Big Bird. Seriously. Furthermore, O just sat down for yet another of his famous “hard-hitting” interviews – with Nickelodeon. What’s next – a guest-appearance on SpongeBob SquarePants?
**UPDATE** Oopsie! Looks like Big Bird wasn’t too happy about being exploited by O for political purposes. Too funny.
You can’t make this stuff up, folks.
