Reasons Obama lost debate:

Hilarious: Obama's Friends Explain Why He Lost The Debate
(Hint: It Might Involve Him Being Too Smart, Too Kind, Too High-Minded, and Too Cool)
Mockery on Twitter, compiled by Twitchy.

Here's the original article.

Here are the Top Ten reasons Obama lost the debate, per Obama's friends, as sympathetically reported by The New Yorker:

1. He's Just Too Interested In Finding Common Ground and Rising Above Petty Disputes To Lower Himself To Being An Effective Debater.

He did not go out of his way to defeat someone in argument; instead he tried, always with a certain decorous courtesy, to try to persuade, to reframe his interlocutor’s view, to signal his understanding while disagreeing. Obama became president of the law review—the first African-American to do so—but he won as a voice of conciliation. He avoided the Ames Moot Court Competition, where near contemporaries like Cass Sunstein, Deval Patrick, and Kathleen Sullivan made their names.

When Obama avoids competition, it's always because he could win -- if he wanted to. But he's too good for that.

It's never because he's just not good at it.


6. Obama's Too "Cerebral" To "Engage the Issues" in Debate.

"We know that Obama skews cerebral and that he has never liked debates as a way to engage issues. He has said that many times.”

He prefers "engaging the issues" by giving one sided speeches written for him by other people, filled with political catchphrases and empty rhetoric.

See, he's so "cerebral" he doesn't like debate as a vehicle for "engaging the issues," preferring deep thoughts like "We are the change we've been waiting for."

He's too smart to master the arguments and counter-arguments, you see.

I think this is great. I want his people to keep telling him these things. Stroke that ego. And I want libs to keep deluding themselves.

Obama skewered Hillary Clinton pretty good in 2008 but now that he's got to run on his record, he's suddenly not a good debater.

Got to be careful here. Since obama did poorly everyone is piling on, even the liberal pundits. Now obama has the benefit of low expectations and if he does any degree better the next time the liberals are going to jump all over this. After the 3rd debate no one is going to really remember the 1st one. It's going to be what have u done for me lately. The next one is town-hall style where being "folksy" will help. Obama is better at being folksy.

Amazing. With all the options cited, they left out ONE:

The President had never encountered such a dazzling array of lies in such a short period of time. And a moderator who was so spaced out.

Nah! Couldn't be THAT.

Jack don't read too good, check out number 9:

9. Obama is Too High-Minded To Handle Romney's Lies.

Now we just get into the liberal article of faith, which is that Romney must have cheated in some way-- there is no other way the God-King could lose -- so he must have channeled Satan and become Prince of Lies.

But Obama, for whatever reason, couldn't manage to point out these lies.

“The President has always been someone who takes the truth seriously and has a great faith in the American people and their ability to handle big ideas,” Burns said. “He doesn’t patronize them. He uses the campaign as an educative process. He wants to win but also wants to be clear about his ideas…. He took complex ideas like Medicare and the debt and tried to explain it to people so they can understand them while at the same time not being patronizing. And he is doing this with an opponent who is completely dissembling on every issue! There is a certain brazenness about Romney. It’s like [Stephen] Colbert talking about ‘truthiness.’ Romney stood there, with his hair and his jaw and his terrific angles—and he lied! About taxes, about Medicare. Obama pushed back on the five-trillion-dollar tax cut or the way Romney’s version of Medicare would destroy Medicare as we know it. And Romney just tilted his head and said, Oh, no, it won’t. At some point, you have to believe that the facts speak for themselves.”

Usually "the facts" require a human being to speak for them. They do not "speak for themselves."

Has it occurred to any of these people that Obama's ads -- which speak in a one-sided manner, without any chance of rebutting -- are the things which might be lies? And the reason that Obama couldn't rebut "Romney's lies" is that Romney wasn't lying -- Obama's campaign is in fact lying?

All of Obama's Greatest Hits -- including his frantic attempts to rehabilitate himself on the campaign trail -- come when there is no one around to challenge him.

If Obama's claims cannot withstand challenge, what do we make of them?

Oh, right: That Romney's claims must be false. The ones that don't whither under scrutiny.
----------------------------------------------------------
The Romney lied! one is my favorites. Obama uses the Tax Policy Center which is a combo of two liberal think tanks, jumbo shrimp, jumbo shrimp, to say that Romney would cut taxes 5 trillion.....and even they distanced themselves from that comment because they made a bunch of assumptions that Romney never said anything about.....and Obama is STILL making these assumptions today after being corrected.....but that isn't a lie. Face it, Obama's entire life has been one big lie.

Another excuse. Liberals are remarkable in one thing. No matter what, it's always the other guys fault.

Another lib who admits the President does not have the ability to self-reflect?

There are other scenarios just as or actually quite a bit more likely though,

an alien had taken control of Obama
Karl Rove has Obama locked in a basement and this was a look alike
Karl Rove has Mitt Romney locked in a basement and this was a look alike

there are all kinds of better theories than this libs particular flavor of lies.
