The reason Obama may continue to be 'off his game'

Keith Edwards
There are many interesting and bizarre excuses being proffered by the left for Obama's pathetic debate performance against Mitt Romney; from mile-high syndrome and wedding anniversary jitters to his being flustered at Romney's barrage of lies.

Goofy excuses aside, there is a more serious reason why Obama was probably off his game.

It's almost impossible to believe that President Obama wasn't privy to the deliberate and calculated anti-Islam "movie" distraction strategy being pushed by everyone in his administration in light of emerging facts indicating that the 9/11 anniversary attack in Libya killing our ambassador and three other Americans was, in fact, a planned terrorist attack. And with those facts quickly being uncovered and brought to light, it's understandable that exposure to this kind of cover-up would weigh very heavy on President Obama's mind.   

When the BLS unemployment rate dropped below 8 percent for the first time in 43 months in "historic fashion," it shocked dozens of both conservative and liberal economists. In the wake of the BLS data report, a number of high profile business leaders, pundits and elected officials have implied that the new unemployment rate doesn't correlate to current and trending hard economic data.

There are even some that say the Obama administration may be behind the manipulated numbers because the economy is not getting any better and it's so close to Election Day. As with the 9/11 terrorist attack possible cover-up, if the BLS numbers are proven to have been manipulated it will certainly put a cloud of guilt over the Obama White House.

So add the possible cover-up of the 9/11/12 terrorist attack and the highly suspicious drop in the unemployment rate on top of the major stresses of a re-election campaign that can't seem to get any real traction and it's not that hard to understand why President Obama was off his game during the debate.

And you can bet with the 9/11 Libya attack Congressional hearings scheduled for today along with the continual probing into those "historic" BLS unemployment numbers, that President Obama is sure to be off his game more and more as the facts continue to come out, especially when he has to confront Mitt Romney again face-to-face next week in another debate and probably have to answer questions about both.
