Dear Left Wingers: The President LOST the debate, ok? Get over it.

Posted by: ST on October 6, 2012 at 5:22 pm

As usual, the left does not handle defeat well:

Reddit was up in arms last night after video from the first presidential debate in Denver posted to the site’s politics section appeared to show Mitt Romney pulling cheat notes at the debate. About 2 minutes and 15 seconds in to the video, the GOP nominee is seen putting his hand into his right pocket and placing what appears to be white paper on the podium.

But the Romney campaign told Whispers Friday that Romney was only pulling out a handkerchief.

A close analysis of video of the debate supports that. At 1:26:35 in the video, Romney picks up the same white object—clearly a handkerchief this time—to wipe his face.

This has been such a hot topic of discussion in bitter left wing circles that US News (linked above) actually called in a forensic video analyst to give their thoughts:

A forensic video analyst, who did not wish to be named because of pending state and federal cases he’s working on, says he also believes the white object was just a handkerchief.

“The size, thickness, and overall dimensionality when he first walks up to the podium is consistent with a handkerchief, and not with a single note card,” he tells Whispers. “The elemental movement and mechanics [later on in the video] also suggest it’s absolutely a handkerchief he picks up around his face.”

It’s surreal sometimes watching the way liberals react when they lose.  They said the same thing about Bush allegedly “cheating” during a debate (I think it was against Kerry).  As I wrote this morning on Twitter in a mini-rant, they just cannot comprehend the thought that people out there can do things better than they can, have better ideas than they do … so the other guy MUST HAVE CHEATED.  Here’s more from this morning’s Twitter rant:

BTW, BuzzFeed also confirms Romney was using a hanky and has sceencaps and video.

Here was a great suggestion from a Facebook friend, which I reposted on Twitter:


Update: More left wing moonbattery and excuse-making. It never ends.

  1. This is part of the agitprop the LSM (Information Ministry) keeps trying to feed the voting public about the debate: Are you going to believe us or your lying eyes? It must be a sad way to earn a living trying to pimp a weak-kneed failure of a man as Presidential material. Hey! There’s an idea for a radio show: “Pimp With a Wimp”.

    If you think they were upset then, wait till they get a load of the latest national poll numbers showing Romney/Obama at 49/47.

    Expect a full-scale, all-out panic mobilization by the MSM to edit (cut and paste) anything and everything Romney portraying him in the worst possible light to try and stop the bleeding (think NBC/Zimmerman police dispatch tape edit fiasco).

    Looks like even Obama believed the propaganda from the MSM about his “greatness” and came to the debates unprepared believing his “aura” would carry him.

    Only cheaters think that everyone else cheats to get one over them. Let’s face it, how long are we going to hear about how GW “stole” the election in 2000. LOL Whatever doofuses… or is it doofusi… LOL We are never going to stop hearing about it. Just like now… Our economy is all GWs fault. None of it is Obamas fault.. Yeahhh nooooo. – Lorica

    I could have sworn it was someone demon-possessed that was at the black jesus’ podium, standing across from Romney, in the first presidential debate. Oh, wait– the being whom modiste rigeur Spike Lee calls “the black jesus” is demon-possessed. Explains his call for taxpayer funded infanticide, and refusal in three bills against which he voted to protect the life of a child who has survived a partial birth abortion attempt. The sooner this demon’s life ends, the better for humanity.

    Our friends on the left think that we somehow cheated when we win an election or debate or whatever, because they simply cannot conceive of the possibility that they might be wrong on something, or that the (vast) majority don’t necessarily believe as they do.
