Somehow, in all their post-debate whining and spin, the Obamaites have forgotten to blame Bush for their man’s sorry performance.
Since Wednesday’s debate spanking of the 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama by 45th President of the United States, Mitt Romney, the liberal establishment and their media allies have joined the Obama campaign team in furiously blaming everything but the man who lost. (One possible and unlikely exception was Bill Maher who said, on Twitter, that “Obama looks like he DOES need a teleprompter.”)
Following is a far from exhaustive list of Democrat excuses. You will notice certain themes. Those marked with an asterisk work for the Obama administration, the Obama campaign, or the Democratic National Committee.
Al Gore: It was the altitude.
David Plouffe*: It was the media, secretly wanting a Romney win.
David Axelrod* (Obama adviser): It was just good acting by Romney. And Romney is a liar.
Stephanie Cutter* (Obama adviser): It was the moderator.
Bob Woodward: Obama was distracted, maybe by his personal life.
James Carville: Talking to Romney is like talking to a chainsaw.
Michael Moore: It was John Kerry.
Andrew Sullivan: It was the moderator.
Juan Williams: It was liberals like Michael Moore and Andrew Sullivan on Twitter.
Darrell Delamaide: The moderator asked questions biased toward the Republican agenda.
Brad Woodhouse*: Romney is a liar.
(Intermission for a shred of honesty)
Marc Ambinder: It was the format, Obama’s cautiousness, a bad memory, tiredness from dealing with Turkey and Syria, and (honesty!) that “Obama just doesn’t have a very good affirmative argument to make.”

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
