    Barack Obama received a valuable reminder in his drubbing at Wednesday night’s debate: He is a president, not a king.

    Romney wins a snoozer

    In the hours after the Republican challenger Mitt Romney embarrassed the incumbent in their first meeting, Obama loyalists expressed puzzlement that the incumbent had done badly. But Obama has only himself to blame, because he set himself up for Wednesday’s emperor-has-no-clothes moment. For the past four years, he has worked assiduously to avoid being questioned, maintaining a regal detachment from the media and other sources of dissent and skeptical inquiry.

    Obama has set a modern record for refusal to be quizzed by the media, taking questions from reporters far less often than Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton and even George W. Bush. Though his opponent in 2008 promised to take questions from lawmakers like the British prime minister does, Obama has shied from mixing it up with members of Congress, too. And, especially since Rahm Emanuel’s departure, Obama is surrounded by a large number of yes men who aren’t likely to get in his face.

    **************************

    David Gergen said the same thing on Wed night. He's surrounded by ass-kissers who tell him what a great guy he is. Mitt Romney thinks he's a nice guy.....just a suckass president.

    And you pricks want this for four more years ? The mass retardedness of the left is amazing.

    Romney had a tougher interview with Sean Hannity last night than Barack has had the entire time he's been in office. Sheesh. :rolleyes:

    You'll notice the left has no answer for Obama's miserable and unenergetic performance.....maybe his mind was on his anniversary....or Gore was right.

    Or maybe he's been getting "a hand" for so long that he doesn't know how to deal with a shot to the nuts.

    How many times can you get slapped in 30 seconds. I'd like it a lot more if that were Rachael Maddow. :lol: :lol:

    Wait until Romney gets a shot at him on foreign policy.

    Fast and Furious?

    Iraq Embassy?

    Arab Spring?

    Securing our borders?
