Earth to Obama: Obama thought he’d won the debate against Romney

This scoop comes from the U.K.’s Daily Mail (probably because the MSM in the U.S. has been sitting on it — you know they had it and didn’t run it):

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.

The Democrat, who is aligned with the Obama campaign and has been an unofficial adviser on occasions, said that David Axelrod, Obama’s chief strategist, was stunned that the President left the stage feeling that he had won the debate.

Instead of prepping for the debate, he went sightseeing at the Hoover Dam the day before and he told a supporter on the phone his advisers were “‘keeping me indoors all the time’ to practice. ‘It’s a drag. They’re making me do my homework.’

According to the adviser, it took Obama 24 hours before he could be convinced he hadn’t soundly beaten Romney into the dirt instead of the other way around.

    … and I thought that Obama lost because of an unfurtunate timing of a domestic quarrel over the proper way to celebrate their 20th wedding anniversary.

    If one goes back to his words during the campaign and during his presidency, it is evident that Obama has a loose grasp on reality. His own words reveal that he is somewhat delusional, definitely narcissistic, and shallow. He is glib, belying the fact that he is incompetent, ill-equipped by knowledge or personal attributes for the presidency. Remember, Obama is a man promoted by others, not by himself. He is mostly a media construct, a man heavily influenced by his far left education and the people around him like the Rev. G-damn America Wright and the effects of his childhood with that very odd mother and absent father. He does not like America and would like to remake it, and in that he is very dangerous for the future of America and the world.

    I have the feeling that many Black Americans will wake up and vote for Mitt Romney. For the sake of their financial future!!! After all, many unemployed Americans are Black.

    One comment on free speech in the USA or, should I say, the lack of free speech in the USA today!! It seems that free speech under Obama has been significantly threatened! People are now threatened because of their simple points of view on various topics, especially on politics and Obama. It is really unbelievable to see this phenomenon happening in the USA!

    It is no wonder that not a single court of law in the USA is ready to hear the cases against Obama’s lack of eligibility to be President of the USA on merits with full discovery of the facts!! Not even the Supreme Court of the USA (that is supposed to be the epitome of Justice in the USA) is ready to hear cases on Obama even when they have every good reason to hear such cases about Obama’s lack of eligibility to be President of the USA!!
    Basically, there is no Justice in the USA anymore or there is nothing less than a mockery of justice in the USA that might be even worse because you have the impression that the judicial system is fair and honest when it is highly biased, especially politically for instance!!

    Obama kinda reminds me of the wanna be God King from 300… Just totally delusional.

    Eitan, yes, I absolutely agree.
