Given the continued fall-out from the one-sided debate that Obama fantasized he won, the administration rolled out another series of excuses.
The Washington Examiner reported that Obama’s spokesperson, Jen Psaki, contended Americans are just too dumb to comprehend Obama’s “substantive” and lengthy answers:
[W]hat the American [people] are looking for is not just a professorial list of facts or accomplishments or even goals,” Obama campaign spokeswoman Jen Psaki said yesterday as part of her ongoing, almost-comical attempt to lower expectations going into the debates. She then lamented that Obama “has a tendency to give longer, substantive answers.
Obama himself joined in the excuses. On the Tom Joyner Morning Show yesterday, the President said he didn’t do well because he was just too polite:
I think it’s fair to say I was just too polite, because, you know, it’s hard to sometimes just keep on saying and what you’re saying isn’t true. It gets repetitive. But, you know, the good news is, is that’s just the first one.
Obama then threatened “more activity” in the next debate.
Here’s the audio:
Americans are growing tired of the continued Obama excuses, whether they be about the terrible state of the US economy, the Libyan fiasco, or even his debate performance. Perhaps that’s why Obama has slidden so rapidly in the polls and is now losing in Florida and is poised to fail in Pennsylvania as well as other swing states.
