My wife and I didn’t watch the debates last night. It’s just as well. Twitter kept my phone and tablet beeping. We watched some video excerpts later. It was a pitiful performance by Obama—an example of an amateur meeting a professional.
The dems were so outraged they attacked their own—Jim Lehrer of PBS, the moderator.
Obama’s Stephanie Cutter knocks Lehrer
DENVER, Colo. — Obama spokesperson Stephanie Cutter took a swipe at moderator Jim Lehrer’s largely passive debate performance tonight, saying the PBS anchor had allowed Mitt Romney to act as the moderator.
“I sometimes wondered if we even needed a moderator because we had Mitt Romney,” Cutter told CNN shortly after the debate, though she told POLITICO that Lehrer did his job as moderator and that her comments were strictly about Romney.
Pitiful! But, I’m not in the pitying mood.
Univision had an expose’ over the weekend—on Fast and Furious. It was the first many in the Hispanic communities heard of it. They aren’t happy.
Fast & Furious: Univision Continuing to Ask the Tough Questions
On the heels of staging a successful presidential forum, Univision, the largest Spanish-language network in the U.S., has uncovered more information on the failed Operation Fast and Furious.
Fast and Furious resulted in nearly 2,000 high-powered weapons travelling across the border to be used by Mexican drug cartels that has resulted in the deaths of dozens, if not hundreds, of innocent civilians.
As we have been reporting, Administration officials have been less than revealing about what they knew about the ill-conceived Fast and Furious Operation, including the strong possibility that Attorney General Eric Holder may have contradicted himself in sworn congressional testimony.
It was embarrassing to Obama so he took steps to correct the situation.
He selected the wife of the owner of Univision to be an Ambassador. I guess if you can’t refute the facts, try bribery.

By El Nuevo Herald Staff Report
President Barack Obama appointed Cheryl Saban, wife of the owner of Univision, as U.S. representative to the United Nations, according to reports from various news blogs.
According to the Politico blog, Haim Saban, owner of the television network, backed Hillary Clinton in 2008, but during the summer donated $1 million to groups supporting the campaigns of Democrats. And according to another blog in Spanish of Yahoo, the appointment of Cheryl Saban to the diplomatic post was made last Wednesday, the day before Obama appeared at a forum at the University of Miami hosted by Univision.
As a parting shot today, I’ll give you this link. I’ll not quote it. But if you follow the link, I think you’ll agree with the article. We’re suffering from “Obama fatique.”
