Bretibart.com passes along the quote:

Norah O’Donnell: “Some Democrats say [Obama’s] campaign needs a wake-up call.  Bill Plante is here with that part of the story.  Bill, you’ve been talking to your sources; what are they saying?

Correspondent Bill Plante: “Well Norah, they’re simply upset and really outraged.  They blame the President’s team, first of all, for not preparing him to meet the challenge of an aggressive Mitt Romney.  They say that nobody in the room challenged him, including the guy that he was debating with, John Kerry, because, as they say, he wants to be Secretary of State so he’s not going to get in the President’s face.

I can’t remember where I saw this first, sorry.  Still… man, but how some people have come down in the world.  I mean, having to resort to blaming your fail on John Kerry?  Shudder…

    😀 Of course it’s John Kerry’s fault. If he had just beat Bush, none of this could have happened!!

  • Darin H says:

    So it’s the guy’s fault, but not the guy who picked the guy?

  • deadite says:

    Obambi will see that Kerry ends up with a horse head in his bed for his incompetence. Unfortunately, his wife won’t be able to tell the difference.

  • Rob Crawford says:

    What kind of people think you help someone practice and don’t challenge them? Why didn’t someone step in when it was obvious Kerry was doing nothing but pitching slow balls?
    Of course, the reality is that NO ONE has ever challenged the Light Bringer — so Kerry’s behavior wasn’t unusual.
    Then there’s the flip side — they all thought Obama had such an major advantage that they really saw no need to challenge Obama, and didn’t see they any danger in not preparing to face a “mere businessman”.

    …dude? Y’all got John “American Gigolo” Kerry as your debate coach- and it’s HIS fault when Barry was unprepared? Whose bright idea was this anyway?

  • acat says:

    Teresa Hinz-Kerry would have been a better coach …


  • qixlqatl says:

    Well, what did she do to end up (as Deadite pointed out) with a horse’s head in her bed? Come to think, she has both ends of the horse………

  • Doug Stewart says:

    Slightly OT, but I still giggle indecently when I remember that a) this loss hit the O campaign staffers so hard they cried their eyes out, enough so they couldn’t appear decent on TV and b) Obama took time to consult with his closest advisor — himself.

    Ow, my aching sides!

  • Aruges says:

    I’m sure Kerry though he was bringing the heat. His magic hat told him he was…

  • jbird says:

    From the campaign spin and the press.coverage. I get the idea that Obama and the press were ready for the caricature of conservatism they have costucted. And when Romney didn’t come.on stage wearing a white hood and robes yet were flummoxed.

  • Don says:

    Have you ever worked for/with someone who was so arrogant that they literally could not recognize constructive criticism and instead took it personally. I think that is what it’s like around Obama.
