NBC´s Todd Excuses Obama´s Poor Speech Performance: Crowd Too Small, ´It Was Hot´
Kyle Drennen ^ | 6/19/13 | Newsbusters

Posted on 06/19/2013 10:02:27 PM PDT by Nachum

Appearing on MSNBC´s Andrea Mitchell Reports on Wednesday, NBC´s chief White House correspondent Chuck Todd came up with a long list of excuses for President Obama´s poor speech performance in Berlin: "I want to give you a little context here....there was an attempt to shrink the crowd size....Maybe they would have gotten 25, 30, 40,000 people....President Obama feeds off a crowd very well." [Listen to the audio or watch the video after the jump] Todd then grasped at other reasons for the lackluster event: "...you had that very distracting glass and you could just see that the President

So Obama didn’t match ‘Bring Down this wall’ ?

How about ‘We keep you safe by spying on you’ ?

The only way an Obama could bring down a wall is if Moochelle’s big ass swung into one.

...I ran out of gas. I... I had a flat tire. I didn’t have enough money for cab fare. My tux didn’t come back from the cleaners. An old friend came in from out of town. Someone stole my car. There was an earthquake. A terrible flood. Locusts! IT WASN’T MY FAULT, I SWEAR TO GOD!

If Obama was POTUS in 1945 we never would have had a cold war to begin with. But then again the same with Rubio.

They tried this logic during the campaign, too, when the crowds for The One were much smaller than Romney’s.

Of course, that metric was not a good indicator of the future given that he was stealing the election.

"To bad we don’t have the media in our pockets to mock this jackass. He fouls up and no one sees. Quayle misspells Potato once and it is all over."

Trial lawyers do the same thing...holding their opposition to an infinitely perfect standard.

If you, the defendant, weren't clairvoyant, seeing the future and both predicting and preventing all possible harm to the plaintiff, then trial lawyers will demand that the jury "teach that bad man a lesson" with stiff punitive damages.

Same thing with the liberal news media for conservatives (even moderates). Even a minor mistake by a Republican is pounced on and pounded repeatedly...such as the news media and entertainment media continuously replaying President Ford's single stumble when he tripped once walking on stage.

In contrast, the news media "forgets" major missteps by Democrats such as promising to close Gitmo on the first day in Office, promising to be transparent, promising to create a special counsel to protect government whistleblowers, promising to not spy on Americans, promising to not use renditions, promising to only use public campaign funds, promising to cut unemployment below 6%, etc.

President Clinton burned kids alive at the Branch Davidian complex yet the news media acts today as if he was a saint...they can't even remember that Clinton started and waged the 1999 U.S. war against Serbia.

If Obama weren’t such a dummy, he would get a smarter teleprompter. We can’t expect better from our Affirmative Action experiment. We should have picked someone who can speak and think at the same time.

More like ‘destroy your immigration laws’. because anyone who can get to your country should be awarded citizenship and YOU should be required to support them.

Tear down your borders’

No, no...you forgot to add the Greek columns.( Snicker ) Mr C4E heard the the sun angle hitting the teleprompter prevented Obama from reading it and hence the lame ending to his speech. If true...Bwahahahahaha...my God but the sitting president is a skinny little twerp.

Mike Gallagher was talking about Chris Matthews making excuses for Obama. He asked something like, “How pathetic are you? Do you wake up in the morning and ask yourself, ‘What can I do to be an even bigger shill for Obama?’”
