HEH: Obama Thought He Won The Debate
Out of touch much?
Allahpundit is skeptical about this but I have absolutely no problem believing it’s true.
Only a man with the self regard of Wile E. Coyote, suuuperrr geeennniusss could walk off the stage last week thinking he won that debate.
In other words… Barack Obama.
When President Barack Obama stepped off the stage in Denver last week the 60 million Americans watching the debate against Mitt Romney already knew it had been a disaster for him.
But what nobody knew, until now, was that Obama believed he had actually won.
In an extraordinary insight into the events leading up to the 90 minute showdown which changed the face of the election, a Democrat close to the Obama campaign today reveals that the President also did not take his debate preparation seriously, ignored the advice of senior aides and ignored one-liners that had been prepared to wound Romney.
The Democrat said that Obama’s inner circle was dismayed at the ‘disaster’ and that he believed the central problem was that the President was so disdainful of Romney that he didn’t believe he needed to engage with him.
‘President Obama made it clear he wanted to be doing anything else – anything – but debate prep,’ the Democrat said. ‘He kept breaking off whenever he got the opportunity and never really focused on the event.
Ace of Spades offers a psychological profile on The Won which explains everything.
UPDATE: Here’s the classic cartoon I referenced above. Don’t worry about the backwards titles, they don’t affect the cartoon at all. Hey, if Obama wants to talk about Big Bird, we’ll talk about Wile E. Coyote.
