Sure, keep believing that, sport. The most smug, obnoxious, condescending politician in modern history chalks up an epic drubbing to him being just such a nice guy. Naturally, he makes an analogy to the one thing he might actually have a grasp of in describing the thrashing he took: Basketball.
Conceding that he failed to deliver at last week’s debate, President Obama says he was “just too polite” and that voters should expect “a little more activity” next week in round two.
In a radio interview on the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Obama compared the presidential race to a seven-game basketball series in which he was ahead two-nothing and lost one game to Mitt Romney at the debate.
“You have a seven-game series, we’re up two zero and we lose one,” he explained. “You know, this is a long haul and I think that it’s very important for folks to make sure that they understand that as long as people stay focused, we will win this thing.”
Uh, Sparky, you weren’t up two games to none. This was the first game and you had your ass handed to you in front of 70 million Americans.
I don’t think he has yet to grasp the fact he was torched so badly they had to bring in his dental records to identify the remains.
“The good news is that’s just the first one,” the president said of last week’s debate. “Governor Romney put forward a whole bunch of stuff that either involved him running away from positions that he had taken or doubling down on things like Medicare vouchers that are going to hurt him long-term.
Seven days later he’s still licking his gaping wounds, pretending that Romney lied. Just pathetic.
