Thursday Humor - The Climate-Adjusted Reason Obama 'Lost' The Debate

Tyler Durden's picture





 

While some have blamed last night's 'performance anxiety' on the President's efforts to save our economy and not having time to practice, and others at Romney's 'bullying' of the moderator, it seems Al Gore has come up with the real reason - it's the altitude, stupid!

 

Via Mike Krieger of Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,

 

Need a laugh?  Al Gore went on television and blamed Obama’s horrific performance during the debate last night on the altitude!  This is epic.  So according to Al Gore we should be very concerned should Obama negotiate any deals with any leaders in the capital cities of La Paz, Bolivia (11,942 ft); Quito, Ecuador (9,350 ft); Bogota, Columbia (8,612 ft); Mexico City, Mexico (7,350 ft) and Nairobi, Kenya (5,889 ft).  For comparison Denver is 5,280 ft above sea level.  For a full list of capital cities Obama should avoid if he gets a second term go here.

I have also figured out why our policy in Afghanistan is such a disaster.  Kabul is higher than Denver at 5,873 ft.

Who let Al Gore out of his cage yesterday?  Watch the video below and have a laugh!

 

 

oh, and by the way, even simple folk like us know that if you are prone to altitude sickness, a quick Diamox beforehand takes care of it (especially at a measly 5300 feet)...

Of course it was the white half that showed up, the goat herding darker Kenyan side is acclimated to much higher hills.  Let's just hope the white half doesn't doesn't show up in Islamabad and take a trip up the karakorum highway to the country retreat for security consultations, or we'll be hearing about nuquular insecurity right before the mushroom clouds start popping along the pakeeeeeeeestani skyline.

As much as I fundamentally despise any incumbent running for re-election, I didn't think Obama's performance last night was that much worse than the other meat puppets.  However, I really can't be bothered to sit through that debate again and pay even more attention to it.

Reminds me of the old joke.

A black guy was praying one day when God, for some reason, decided to answer him. 
"Lord," asked the black guy. "Why are my legs so long?"
"So you can run like the wind through the jungle."
"Lord, why is my hair so kinky?"
"So it won't get caught on anything as you run through the jungle."
"Lord, why is my skin so dark?"
"So that you won't get burned by the sun's intense rays in the jungle."
And then the black guy asked, "Lord, why am I in Chicago?"

This one is good too:

 


A Zebra dies and arrives at the Pearly Gates. As he enters, he asks St. Peter, "I have a question that's haunted me all of my days on earth. Am I white with black stripes, or am I black with white stripes?"St Peter said, "That's a question only God can answer."    So the zebra went off in search of God. When he found Him, the zebra asked, "God, please - I must know. Am I white with black stripes, or am I black with white stripes?" God simply replied "You are what you are."   The zebra returned to see St. Peter once more, who asked him, "Well, did God straighten out your query for you?"   The zebra looked puzzled. "No sir, God simply said 'You are what you are.'" St. Peter smiled and said to the zebra, "Well then, there you are. You are white with black stripes."   The zebra asked St. Peter, "How do you know that for certain?" "Because," said St. Peter, "If you were black with white stripes, God would have said, "You is what you is."

Well...there were never any real "surpluses."  For there to be a surplus, the government would've had to take in more in revenue than it spent.  That really didn't happen during the Clinton years.

He had BUDGET surpluses, sure, but what good do those do you if you still need to burn money on off-budget expenditures?  Actual debt held decreased a TINY bit during the Clinton administration, but that was just because of dramatically reduced deficits and thus debts that didn't need to be rolled.

The chart that makes Clinton's years look best is when you show a graph of "debt-to-GDP" ratio, because THAT dropped dramatically during the '90s.  It's not like it had anything to do with what he did as a President.

People aren't buying the Al Qaeda lies anymore, so Global Warming is a good fallback.  Bernanke, take note.  House value dropping? Global Warming.  Gas up at the pump?  Global Warming.  Groceries more expensive?  Global Warming.  Wife pregnant?  Global Warming.

What do you expect?

Al to blame Barry?

 

I was expecting Barry to "blame the video", but that excuse has been used up.

I think he will do better in the next debate if he chuggs a 40, does a big fat line, and has a reefer.

He may still suck ass like he did last night, but he sure will feel better about it.

Go, Willard. Tie him to the top o' the car!

Actually, what worries me is that the next debate might be in the Low Country region so that Oabma with be oppoessed by being to close to sea level.  He can't be expected to perform under those conditions.

It doesn't matter because DEBATES don't matter.  There are only two teams in the minds of most folks, and no one really cares very much what they say to each other on the teevee.

I believe Romney not only won over a larger percentage of undecideds last night, but I think he stole some moderate Democrats from Barry as well.  Think about it, the Dems have been trying to use demogoguery and division to stir up hate and anger to get their base out to the polls.  They have painted Romney as a poison the air, kill your grandma and starve your baby kind of candidate.  Last night, for the first time, the world observed Romney and Barry in an unprotected, unmanaged anf free form environment.  Romney was did not act like the pitbull that so many conservatives wanted. He gently dismantled our president and showed a side which many did not know existed.  There are many Democrats who do not want to vote for Obama but were going to do so to make sure the party of baby killers and environment poisoners did not win the election.  Last night Mitt Romney dispelled those myths and quelled the anger.  I believe he pick up some Democratic votes and gave other Dems a reason not to show up at the polls.  This debate win was much bigger than anyone realizes, yet.  However, there are still two to go and either side can still win.

Hope springs eternal, I guess.  Ratings may have sucked, though.  Be sure to turn out if you love you some Romney.

http://politicker.com/2012/10/about-40-million-people-watched-the-debate...

I just don't think debates have much effect on the election.  EVEN if the teevee show last night changed the opinion of every single viewer, that's only about 40 million people, and it's safe to say half of them won't bother to vote.  Of the half that DOES bother to vote, how many will be in states which aren't in the tank for one party already?

We still have to go through the process, of course.  Lots of advertising dollars are in play here, and that's the only reason they put that shit on the teevee in the first place--so folks'll get hungry and go out to Olive Garden afterwards, or maybe buy a new Toyota.

It's been Barry's election to lose, he started down that road last night.  There were 58 million viewers last night:

http://www.mediabistro.com/tvnewser/debate-ratings-fox-news-tops-cable-n...

...the largest TV debate audience in history...no one knows how many of them will vote, however, polls taken in the next few days will be revealing. It will be interesting to see if Romney gets a bounce and if so how big.  The two important polls will be of the independents and which way they now lean and of the likely voters and if they have changed their views as a result of th debate.  Frank Luntz had a focus group of undecided voters of equal proportions of both parties...he asked them who they would vote for as a result of the debate.  The answer was the biggest one way skew in his career of polling and it was in favor of Romney.  Like i said, there are two more debates to go, so there is till a chance for either side to score major points and win the election.  One thing I can say is it doesn't matter who you want to win, the facts will speak for themselves.

If you work in the media, and more especially teevee, there's a really good reason to suggest the debates will have a big impact on the election.

I don't, though.  I'm not even convinced *voting* has much effect on the outcome.  Good luck for your guy, whosoever he may be.  I'm probably sitting this one out, because I'm delighted that no matter who wins, ONE of those assholes is going to be in the hotseat for the next 4 years, when the planet probably turns violent.

Maybe, Obama lost because he is just not very smart and does not have any real leadership skills.

Without the mainstream media or the teleprompter to protect him from his real self, the truth came out.

I did not watch the debates. I have that time. I spent it with my husband. Had a nice time. I am also reading up on common plants/weeds that can be eaten, how to harvest them, how to prepare them.

Cows love kudzu, but be careful.  It has an odd side effect.  It curbs your taste for alcohol.  That could ruin some of the best minds around here.
