#1 Obama 'believed he had BEATEN Romney' in Denver debate10-09-2012, 04:40 PM
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.

And they say Romney is out of touch. Obama seems to live in some alternative reality where he just shows up and is called the winner by default.I have learned now that while those who speak about one's miseries usually hurt, those who keep silence hurt more.

In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

Cocky. Arrogant. Self Assured. That's how we have to describe the President of The United States.
Well, he surrounded himself with lackeys like Valerie Jarret.
Quote......I think Barack knew that he had God-given talents that were extraordinary. He knows exactly how smart he is. He knows how perceptive he is. He knows what a good reader of people he is. And he knows that he has the ability the extraordinary, uncanny ability to take a thousand different perspectives, digest them and make sense out of them, and I think that he has never really been challenged intellectually. So what I sensed in him was not just a restless spirit but somebody with such extraordinary talents that had to be really taxed in order for him to be happy. Hes been bored to death his whole life. Hes just too talented to do what ordinary people do......
Now, perhaps he will be "challenged intellectually". It'll be good exercise for him

Narcissists like Barry have all the answers, even when they don't.
