http://www.hughhewitt.com/transcripts.aspx?id=ad3ae2ba-788f-...HH: Well, Mark, I am of course over the top with my analogies, but the left today has been trotting out serial spins for this disaster – oh, it was rope-a-dope. Oh, it was Napoleon invading Russia. Oh, it was the altitude sickness. But I keep coming back very seriously to the fact he’s just not that good. He just doesn’t really understand what he was talking about on subject after subject, from IPAB to the Cleveland clinic, to how taxes work. MS: No, no.HH: He just doesn’t know.MS: No, well, that’s the thing, and it’s not just, what’s interesting is it’s not that he doesn’t know the issues, but it’s that he’s too, he didn’t even know the lame MSNBC talking points. So that’s why those guys were mad, because they’re, they sit there and they watch him saying well, you know, I think Governor Romney and I agree a lot about Social Security, because he’s too lazy even to learn the lame attack points. I said on this show a week or two back, you know, the classic performance by Obama, whether you’re talking about Martha Coakley or his bid for the Chicago Olympics is that he goes to the trouble of flying in to phone it in. --------------------------------------------------------The chair is broken.
http://online.wsj.com/article/SB124105013014171063.htmlEarly in the campaign, in January 2007, a New York Times reporter wrote a story about Mr. Obama's time as president of the Harvard Law Review. It was there, the reporter noted, "he first became a political sensation."Here's why: "Mr. Obama cast himself as an eager listener, sometimes giving warring classmates the impression that he agreed with all of them at once." Also: "People had a way of hearing what they wanted in Mr. Obama's words." [...]Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, in a book out next week [May 2009], tells of congratulating freshman Sen. Obama on a phenomenal speech. Without a hint of conceit, Mr. Obama replied, "Harry, I have a gift."______Pfffft!

Peggy Noonan, although irksome on talk shows, is a decent writer. Here's her analysis of the debate.http://online.wsj.com/article/declarations.htmlPunchiest sentence: When Mr. Romney gave him the sweet-faced "You're a cute little shrimp" look--and he gave it to him all night--Mr. Obama couldn't even look at him.Ha!
From the WSJ article in 2009:The Gift has been good for Mr. Obama. But in a still-dangerous world, in which one's listeners now have names like Ahmadinejad, Kim Jong Il, Putin, Hu Jintao, Netanyahu, Sarkozy and Merkel, the costs for the rest of us of being "misinterpreted" for a compulsive lack of clarity could be high.As back in January 2007, the key question remains: Is this Hamlet-like style of leadership suited for conducting the presidency of the United States? More bluntly, is it leadership?It's almost as if they could foresee the Iranian and Syrian citizens that would be killed, and the U.S. embassies that would burn.
I was going to start a thread, "Andrew Sullivan On Debate," but I think it belongs here as a stark contrast: Conservatives think Obama's a loser and Libruls think Obama's a loser.Some Obama Campaign Aides Shell Shocked After Debatehttp://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2012/10/04/some-obama-...
