Liberals Blame Racism, Environmentalism for Obama’s Debate Loss

Daniel Greenfield, Frontpage Magazine, October 4, 2012

There is a famous parable of the seven blind men and the elephant. Each of the blind men touches the elephant and comes away with the conclusion that the sum of the elephant is the part they are holding on to. It applies a little too well to the left which seizes on its grand explanation for everything and plugs it in regardless of the circumstances.

How does the left deal with Obama’s debate loss? It goes after the usual suspects. Michael Moore, a fat white man, blames racism.

Obama didn’t lose the debate. He was intimidated by a culture of racism created by the right. A culture of racism that involved broadcasting his own speeches.


If Obama loses the election, it will be due to racism, the high altitude or because the electoral college is unfair. It will never be because he lost.

[Editor’s Note: Georgetown University Professor Michael Eric Dyson had much the same argument.]

    Al Gore blamed Denver’s “high” altitude.  First off, this wasn’t a sporting event, and second, Denver was where the DNC was held in 2008, complete with all the fake Greek columns.

    • To be fair, Al Gore also invented the internet and global warming aka Man Bear Pig! Moving on, WHERE has the Mittens we saw last night been? He absolutely wiped the floor with Oh-Face, it was a total beat down. Obviously I am no fan of Mittens, but it was interesting to see a moderately intelligent white man with a business background completely obliterate an AA mixed race community organizer.

        Al Gore to do ‘dirty weather report’
        By Ben Geman – 09/23/12 03:35 PM ET

        Al Gore hopes to show links between climate change and the effects of extreme weather worldwide with an online and social media-fueled event built around the idea of “dirty weather.”

        • I’m still waiting for endless stream of  mega-hurricanes that man-made global warming predicts.

          Last year, one hurricane hit the east coast. This year there have been none of any consequence.

          When a random big one hits, it will of course be proof of man-made global warming. 

          • Barrack Osama

            I live in Florida.  Ever since Al Gore started with his global warming, I can scarcely remember a hurricane down here. We had a minor one this year. Before that, it’;s bee clear skies for years. I think this global warming thing is great.

    Did Obama lose the debate? If a tree falls in the forest, but nobody is around to hear it, does it make a sound? If Obama loses the debate, but the media fails to report on it, did he actually lose? If such news is carefully kept from the public, then it doesn’t matter if he “lost” the debate or not.

    • Detroit_WASP

      I don’t know where you’ve been but,  the BHO loss is all I have heard all day on CNN, Fox and on the radio as well.

      • Tim_in_Indiana

        Sorry, I don’t pay much attention to the MSM.

  • jedsrael

    Expect the same if he loses?

    Ha.  Expect open encouragement of riots (looting, burning, raping, murdering, in the name of St. MLK), and look for Chris Matthews MSM to justify the “regrettable but understandable violence” as “getting even with White privilege for its racist ‘otherization’ of our historic and transformative first African American president.”

      I saw Tweety being interviewed this morning, looking like someone had just shot his dog.

    • tickyul

      Welp, I am looking forward to both a Romney win and Urban Americans going bat**** crazy!!!!

  • Detroit_WASP

    The blacks will vote for BHO no matter how he does in the debates.  In fact, one news station played a video of a white woman and a black man claiming BHO had WON!!!!

    Being a liberal really is  a mental illness.  It is the ability to look at an animal and say, “It walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, flys, swims, has feathers, therefore must be a dog.”
    A complete disconnection from reality. 

    • The worst part is that some of them are intelligent, educated and articulate but they lack the “commonsense/logic” gene and have been completely indoctrinated from youth and can see no other way but the liberal agenda.

  • I hate to say it but I kind of cynically regard all the hype in the news about Obama losing the debate as just a big build up to how he is going to overcome incredible odds and prove the brilliance of his movement by coming back stronger and more articulate next time to “deliver an electoral death blow” to a man whose views are (in reality) so close to his own that it really hardly matters who gets elected as between them.  As the late Alabama Governor George Corley Wallace used to say, when running for President in 1968 and 1972—“there’s not a dime’s worth of difference” between the two major parties….. 

    • E_Pluribus_Pluribus

      As regards appointments to the Federal judiciary — the chief central planning body in 21st century America — George Wallace’s observation that “there’s not a dime’s worth of difference” between the two major parties was often true in his day. 

      Wallace’s observation has no validity today.  Alito, Thomas, Scalia, and even Roberts and Kennedy are very different than Sotomayor, Ginzburg, Breyer and Kagan.

      • The__Bobster

        Except when Roberts inexplicably votes like Sotomayor, Ginzburg, Breyer and Kagan.

        • E_Pluribus_Pluribus

          The operative word is “inexplicably”.  Wouldn’t we all like to know the mental processes of that individual.  The reasoning of the four Democrat-appointed judges is no mystery.  Ideology was their guide, but what possessed Roberts?

          • IstvanIN

             A dirty secret?

          • SLCain

            Roberts ruling was not inexplicable.  Roberts is, essentially, a liberal.  Prior to becoming a federal judge, he did pro-bono work in support of gay marriage.


            And, of course, he cast the deciding vote in one of the biggest usurpations of power that the federal government has ever attempted – Obama-care.  He did not have to.  But he did.  He evidently has no problem whatsoever using federal power to overturn traditional, conservative american society.

  • Oil Can Harry

    What Michael Moore-on is claiming- that the commander-in-chief of the most powerful military in history choked in a debate because he was criticized in an obscure internet video- sounds like “stereotype threat”.

    ST is the latest in-vogue excuse for black academic failure- at least until next year’s excuse comes along.

    • Puggg

      I think what the goofball lefty was trying to say was that Obama held back on nuking Romney over the 47% deal because the day before the debate, Romney surrogates essentially rolled out a missile defense system of that Obama video from 2007.

    It really is racism and I can prove it.  In the first election whites voted for BO’s white half.  Now in this election whites will not vote for his black half.  See – racism.   Don’t repeat this to Liberals, they will actually use it. 

  • KD_Did

    Again, Im not a huge Romney fan, but that’s our choice. Having said that, Romney cleaned his clock. An intelligent white business leader with real world experience showed his superior intellect, ability to organize his thoughts, and preparation going against an AA president who has had the red carpet laid out in front of him for most of his life and has never been challenged by the media.

    • Puggg

      I only wish immigration would have come up, and Lehrer would have asked the two of them why they’re essentially pushing the same policy.  No questions about H1B visas, legal immigration displacing white Americans in the job market.  No questions about mahogany mobs, black crime, Knockout Game.

      I will say that if I ever need an accountant, I’ll pick Romney over Obama any day.

      Honestly.  They both had their talking points – Romney just delivered his better than Obama did his.

      •  Only a Racist would dare bring up the factual evidence of black crime, illegal immigration, and the destructive impacts they have had on our economy, neighborhoods and nation. If the Republicans are so scared of racist labels now, just imagine how much worse it will be when White people are not a majority.

      • I have a sneaking suspicion that Romney needs to say certain things to win this election and has a covert agenda regarding immigration. Although he is a semi-politician he is also white, non-liberal, fiscally conservative, intelligent and a problem solver.

        • A problem solver is a great asset to have. Too bad Romney sees problems very differently than pro-White people.

    • Major

    Racism seems to be the only excuse the liberals have when people don’t agree with their views and when things don’t go their way.  And I doubt that clown Michael Moron has ever had to deal with racial issues the way normal people have.  All these liberal celebrities are just living in a fantasy world in their safe and gated communities, and at the same time, they’re really just puppets for the left-wing media they’re working for.

  • NorthernWind

    He lost because a debate is more difficult than reading a teleprompter or repeating platitudes. It doesn’t help that his record is pretty terrible so far.

    Blaming his failure on racism is laughable. I think that he could have done better, frankly, but Mitt is a smarter man. As much as I dislike Mitt, he is smarter.

    • Major

      Mitt’s all we have friend. And yes…he is a smarter man. He didn’t make his way through life with his hand out asking for the special treatments of AA…he’d spit on anyone who told him he was a poor, disenfranchised, down on his luck, disadvantaged man.

      Me? I’m embarrassed for Osuckers white genes. He’s disgraced them. Not that I thought that a high yeller fraud like him would ever use them or recognize them…LOL

    I want Romney to win…so that I can laugh at the show that Urban Americans WILL put on.

    •  You won’t laugh for long. I can guarantee you that any typical display of the black schism will be followed by the typical response of White politicians to atone for any grievances that might have caused those blacks to riot in the first place.

      Modern Politics 101: They never say what they mean. You never get what they say.

  • What happened was, a White Man of undisputed WASP heritage, and UBER-Whiteness, merely stood up to an uppity minority, and stared him down with a smirk that spoke volumes, about the last seventy-five years. Obama, like all his race, cannot stand a self-aware White man, when he doesn’t have his homies…. or a teleprompter to tell him what to say.

  • JohnEngelman

    Wednesday night’s face-off between President Obama and challenger Mitt Romney “was a debate to forget,” says Richard Cohen at The Washington Post. “Neither scored a knockout blow,” and even if one of them had, only the most dedicated political junkie would have been awake to notice. “What the hardy viewer got to see was an exchange of numbers, some of them in the trillion-dollar range, whose accuracy the viewer could not possibly judge.” That’s where the fact-checkers step in…   
    Obama: Romney “would give millionaires another tax break and raise taxes on middle class families by up to $2,000 a year”The verdict: “Mostly true”…
    Romney: Obama “doubled the deficit”The verdict: “Not true”…
    Final score: Both Romney and Obama had their moments of “truthiness,” exaggeration, or stretching the truth beyond recognition, say NPR’s Memmott and Montgomery. But, at least partly “because Romney made more factual assertions, he’s getting dinged more” by the fact-checkers.

    • haroldcrews

      Perhaps Mr. Cohen has never heard of YouTube.

    • The__Bobster

      It would be nice if you used something other than the NY Slimes, the Washington Compost and NPR for your news sources, Dem operative. Even Tweety Matthews knew that the Usurper lost big time. The polls also say he did, by 67-25.

  • MekongDelta69

    Romney cleaned that boy’s clock. Period.

    Romney – 25+ years business experience
    NoBama – Has never created a job. Has never even HAD a job.

    Romney – Gave his inheritance away and made his own way. Intelligent. Very good businessman.
    Nobama – Has had everything handed to him on an affirmative action platter. Expects everyone to bow down to him.

    Romney – Skewered by leftist media for daring to even exist.
    NoBama – Has been shielded his entire career by leftist media.

    Romney – Mormon. Stiff. Mostly squeaky clean. Probably never even ripped off a piece of gum from a candy store.
    NoBama – Dope smoking, possibly gay, half black, raised as a Muslim, mother was a communist, mentored by a communist (Marshall), followed an anti-white pastor (Wright), community agitator, committed socialist, pathological narcissist and liar. Lazy and thinks everyone is beneath him. Dictatorial.

    Romney – White
    NoBama – Half white, half black. Despises his white half.

    Romney – Has plenty of views which I don’t share. Not nearly conservative enough for me. Not by a long shot.
    NoBama – Wants to destroy my family and me, and your family and you.

    Election Day – You can vote for Romney; You can vote for Nobama; You can waste your vote on a third party candidate or write-in; You can stay home and not vote; You can renounce your citizenship, leave the country and not worry about it.

    There are NO other choices. I’d vote for Jared Taylor if it would do any good. But I leave in the real world, not in a world I would like to see (again), so I know it won’t do any good. So I know what I HAVE to do – not because I really WANT to, but because I HAVE to.

    You (like that guy who posted on here the other day) want to vote for NoBama, don’t even talk to me. I won’t waste any more keystrokes responding. Post on black planet’s website or hip hop world (or whatever it’s called). They’ll love you. I’ll despise you.

    If you can’t bring yourself to hold your nose and vote (R), then at least stay home.

    You don’t win back the country in one day. You win it back over time – just like the left took fifty years to destroy it. November 6th is only one tiny step. There are a lot of steps on the yellow brick road.
    (Btw, if you go on any black websites, tell them the election is November 7th. Don’t laugh – that actually worked once before.)

    First step – get rid of this lunatic. We can go from there.

  • JohnEngelman

    If…you score Wednesday’s debate on substance — accurate facts and honest arithmetic — Obama more than held his own. He drove home the false promises and dangerous ramifications of Romney’s proposed tax cuts, which would surely raise taxes for the middle class by eliminating breaks, such as the home mortgage deduction, and require the elimination of essential programs, such as student loan subsidies…           
    Romney looked good, even sounded good, but was as bereft of specifics as he has been for the last 18 months. He said he would replace Obamacare, but he did not lay out his plan. He said he would end deductions and loopholes without hurting the middle class, but he would not say what those cuts would be.

    •  I didn’t watch this, but from my experience, in a debate it doesn’t matter who has better arguments. What matters most is the impression about who had more “energy”, so to speak, and who has somehow flooded or “conquered” the opponent. It’s not reducible to frothing or yelling- it’s almost measurable  feeling which tells who is the winner.

    • Right on Mr. Engelman. You know this is like a WWE match. That’s ,they let Romney win this debate so the race won’t become a blowout for the President. But, it’s already fixed for the President to be re-elected. Look at the eschewed jobs report. That’s the proof of the pudding. I was for the incumbent but after that debacle, i’m voting libertarian as mentioned earlier. Gar Johnson, this year for everyone, even you wn types. In his world, you’ll will have the liberty to say what you want and get your own places. TGIF!!

    good. But I leave in the real world, not in a world I would like to see
    (again), so I know it won’t do any good. So I know what I HAVE to do –
    not because I really WANT to, but because I HAVE to.”

    The real world is the one in which you vote for whomever the Republicans
    put up, and they keep giving you fake conservatives.  You keep opting
    for the worst item in a vending machine, hoping that they’ll replace it
    with something different after it’s gone, and they’ll eventually fill
    the whole vending machine with that item because it’s their biggest

    I voted for George W. Bush twice.  What did I get for my trouble?  George W. Bush, John McCain, and now Mitt Romney.   The GOP is everybit as much our enemy as the democratic party is.  This is a party that puts Lindsey Graham forward as one of their leaders – a man not unlike Gomer Pyle (in more ways than one) – a Republican Senator who throws his support behind liberal democrats, as long as they’re strong supporters of Israel.  This is a party that supported TARP, that suppresses any concern voiced about immigration, legal or otherwise.  This is a party that supports the ever-expanding security-state.

    You talk about wasting our votes?  Voting for Romney IS wasting my vote.  The GOP needs to die.  I’ll do
    whatever I can – voting third party in this case – to help kill it.

    • MekongDelta69

      You sound like you think I’m the spokesman for
      the RNC. If you knew me IRL, you’d seriously laugh. (And in addition, I’m a
      registered Conservative, fwiw.)I know full well what the Republican party is and what they stand for (and don’t
      stand for). I voted for Bush twice also. I thought after he won the second time
      and didn’t have to worry about campaigning again, he would turn more
      conservative. Instead he turned more liberal, which ticked me off no end.If you honestly think Romney is a white NoBama, you’re entitled to your
      opinion. However, if you think that by voting third party (or submitting a
      write-in vote), you are going to kill the GOP, you’re deluding yourself. It has
      never worked (although Perot made a slight dent) and will likely never work.As I mentioned, Romney wasn’t even my third choice, much less my first. But he
      won, whether you or I like it or not. He’s the one running against NoBama. Not
      me; not you; not Jared Taylor; not anybody else in the world.If you think NoBama has destroyed America in his first term, you just wait if
      he gets re-elected. Just like any second term president, he will do
      anything he wants, with no constraints.Do you want the
      Supreme Court to be filled with ‘wise Latinas’ and ‘ACLU Ginsburgs’ and ‘marxist
      Kagans’? They will be there long after NoBama is gone.Hell – it wouldn’t shock
      me in the least if towards the end of his second term, NoBama ‘discovers’ some ‘national
      security threat,’ declares martial law, suspends elections and appoints himself
      Dictator For Life. Don’t laugh – everything else he’s been saying for decades
      that he’d do – has come true.So I’m voting for the (much) lesser of two evils. You can vote for NoBama –
      which will be helping him by commission, or you can vote for a third-party –
      which will help him by omission.

      • SLCain

        “Do you want the Supreme Court to be filled with ‘wise Latinas’ and ‘ACLU
        Ginsburgs’ and ‘marxist Kagans’? They will be there long after NoBama
        is gone. ”

        Just as John Roberts and David Souter are now there, long after the Bushes have gone.

        “If you honestly think Romney is a white NoBama, you’re entitled to your
        opinion. However, if you think that by voting third party (or submitting
        a write-in vote), you are going to kill the GOP, you’re deluding
        yourself. It has never worked (although Perot made a slight dent) and
        will likely never work.”

        It doesn’t work because most conservatives are like you – they just keep voting for the Republicans, no matter how crappy they are.  You seem to enjoy playing the role of Charlie Brown to the Republican party’s Lucy.   You will vote for Romney, and he WILL screw you over.  Knock yourself out – it’s a free country (or at least we pretend it is). 

        However, if you want to insist that we are fools who will not vote for Romney – that we are somehow voting for Obama (which we are not), then I insist that YOU are a fool for voting for Romney – you are empowering the liberal, multi-cultural establishment by dignifying their Republican allies with your vote.  You are allowing them to take advantage of you.

        What you don’t seem to realize is that our problems are well beyond the ability of our political system to solve them.

          I’d rather take my chances with a Roberts than a Sotomayor.

          …because most conservatives are like you…
          Then you REALLY don’t know me.

          However, if you want to insist that we are fools who will not vote for Romney…
          I didn’t ‘insist’ you are a ‘fool.’ I didn’t ‘insist’ anything and I didn’t call you a ‘fool.’ You’re the one who ‘insisted’ I was a ‘fool.’

          … that we are somehow voting for Obama (which we are not)
          Of COURSE you are – either by commission or omission. You only get five choices – which I noted below. One of them may get rid of this black muslim marxist. The other four will help get this lunatic reelected.

          You are allowing them to take advantage of you
          Hardly – I know full well what I’m doing, in spite of your not thinking so. My number one objective in the immediate future is to get rid of The Messiah. Period.

          What you don’t seem to realize is that our problems are well beyond the ability of our political system to solve them.
          Possibly, but I’m not going to stop trying. The left has NEVER stopped since 1917 and finally helped crash the system from 1964 to the present day. They NEVER give up.
          I’ve never run from a fight in my life and I don’t intend to start now.

            “Then you REALLY don’t know me.”

            Of course I don’t.  I never claimed I did.  You’re just another anonymous poster on the internet, to me.   I only claimed that you are like other conservatives in doing just what they do – voting for whomever the Republican party sees fit to foist off on you.  They do.  So do you too.

            “I didn’t ‘insist’ you are a ‘fool.’ I didn’t ‘insist’ anything and I didn’t call you a ‘fool.’ You’re the one who ‘insisted’ I was a ‘fool.”

            No, in so many words, in this and many other posts, you have implied just that of everyone who doesn’t wish to waste their vote on Romney.  How else are we to construe your meaning?

            “Of COURSE you are – either by commission or omission. You only get five choices – which I noted below. One of them may get rid of this black muslim marxist.”

            No – I reject your categorization – it’s fallacious.

            “The left has NEVER stopped since 1917 and finally helped crash the system from 1964 to the present day. They NEVER give up.”

            True, they NEVER stop.  They NEVER give up.  And they also largely work outside of our political system – by corrupting and subverting its institutions, large and small – from the family to the supreme court.  Again, if you think that casting a vote here or there will save the country you once knew, you are sorely deluded.

          • May I interject?

            Of course, I’m a moderator, so I am giving myself permission.

            Above, we have two people who are almost 100% alike on the issues that matter most (race) tearing each other to shreds over a question over which neither one of them (or any of us) have that much control.

            On January 20, we will hear either “I, Barack Hussein Obama, do solemnly swear,” or “I, Willard Mitt Romney, do solemnly affirm” (don’t think the Mormon that won’t drink coffee would actually swear.)  The former will do what he has done for the last four years, the latter will be a centrist establishmentarian Republican in the mold of George H.W. Bush.  Anything either one of them does for our benefit will be a matter of pure accident and “falling out of the design.”

            Meanwhile, our camp needs all the comity it can get.

     I think if Mr Romney wins…in true Republirat-Phonycon fashion, he will do his fair share of sucking up to Urban Americans…in the same fashion as G. Dummaya did.

    Isn’t it obvious, Big Brother is going to side with Urban Americans most of the time….no matter what they do. If Whitey tries ANYTHING funny against the Fed’s Urban American Stormtroopers…..expect swift and deadly retribution.

    • On race, Mitt Romney is far more like George Romney than George Wallace.  The only reason he’s getting my vote is that the other person on the ballot is not white.

        Good for you!!!! I hope Romney wins it……… we can watch Urban Americans burn down their neighborhoods.

    Let’s take Mitt Romney at his word, and see how the numbers he cited during Wednesday night’s debate add up. We can begin with a pop quiz in Presidential arithmetic: 
    If you have a $1.3 trillion annual deficit, and you are going to make it shrink to zero without raising any tax, how many new jobs will the economy have to create? Show your work.       
    Starting with Romney’s assertion that his policies will lead to 12 million new jobs over four years and provide the government with fresh tax revenue, how close will that come to plugging the gaping hole in the federal budget? Answer: Not very close…
    But let’s continue taking Romney at his word, even if it’s not worth the paper it isn’t printed on.Let’s imagine those new jobs are really, really good jobs. How good do they have to be to provide enough new tax revenue to cover the deficit?              

    At a 25 percent Federal tax rate on all the new income, the average new job would have to pay a mere $433,333 per year to fill the gap…         

    The bottom line?              

    Romney’s real problem is that when he talks numbers, the numbers never add up.

    Racism — the most powerful force on earth.

    •  Thousands are born every single day, whether it’s in hospital delivery rooms or by slander in the media. Quite an extraordinary phenomenon when you consider that the people supposedly against Racism are the catalysts that do such a wonderful job of continuing to create them.

      The event horizon has already been eclipsed.

     Fakeemail, that is a perfect synopsis of the myth of one Barack Hussien Obama. I’ve been trying to tell anyone who’d listen exactly that and get push back even from those who didn’t vote for him.

  • Funny that you refer to Obama as a “magic negro”. Why? There’s a YT video ACTUALLY CALLED “Barack, the Magic Negro”, sung to the tune of “Puff, the Magic Dragon”, by a guy pretending to be the voice of Al Sharpton.

    Absolutely hilarious.
