    :rofl:

    Next it'll be evil energy conveyed by Romney.


    Best was Whoopie (WHOOPIE!) Goldteef making all sorts of excuses - as if the Romney camp is behind everything. Just plain wow. I hated her stand-up, loved her on TNG, hate her otherwise. She lacks all sense of integrity.

    Ditto for Gore. Boo hoo, Al. Maybe you should figure out how to manufacture more air so that this won't happen to Obama ever again.

    One would think that with allthe flying around he has done on Air Force One, pressurized to higher altitude than 5000ft, that he would be used to high altitude by now.

    That said, I can go between Denver and lower altitude and never have problems. Hell,I even manage to function fine at 10000ft. After about 12500, I start feeling it.

    We might as well preemptively come up with more leftist excuses for Obama's phenomenally inept performance. I'll take a stab at a few:

    - Solar flares
    - Never adjusted to the Daylight Savings Time switch
    - Mitt Romney was using ventriloquism to throw his voice out of sync
    - They swapped Janeane Garofalo for Jim Lehrer at the last second
    - "I thought my morning coffee tasted odd..."
    - Couldn't concentrate because "Que Sera Sera" kept running through his head
    - Spent a sleepless night worrying about security on the southwest border

    This nation is truly blessed as he is one of many in history that ALMOST became POTUS.
    Someone up there is looking over us for sure, guiding our ways and making sure we remain the shining light for the rest of the world by discarding those who might actually be in contention.

    Altitude is a major problem when your nose is that high up in the "air".

    Funny, airliners are pressurized from 5000ft-8000ft...

    You laugh.

    CNN Europe had an analysis and it was that Obama did not do well because he" is busy running details of the government" and is "doing a job" instead of preparing for debates.

    Well -- seeing as how he invented the Internet, I guess you have to give him a little bit of latitude... :whistling:

    Hawaii's highest point (13.8K) is almost as high as Colorado's (14.4K), while Indonesia's (16k) and Kenya's (17k) are higher still.
    So why is America's dumbest President so ignorant about altitude acclimation?:headscratch:

    Yup and that means appearing on "The View". He prepped as much as he wanted to prep.

    In a twisted way we can thank the sycophants (spell) in the lame stream media for giving him such a pass and floating softballs for the last 4 years. What a shock, when there wasn't someone asking him "what is your favorite color".
    Like showing up in Agusta for the Masters without picking up a club for 4 years. Its going to be ugly.
    Loved it!

    A narcissist doesn't have to "prepare". He know it all already........ he thinks.
