Hollywood Implodes Over Obama Meltdown


You know you’re in serious trouble, if you’re a leftwing Democrat, when you’ve lost Bill Maher. President Obama’s performance in the first presidential debate with Governor Mitt Romney was so abysmal that even Maher, a $1 million contributor to an Obama super PAC, had to throw up his hands in despair. “i can’t believe i’m saying this,” he tweeted, “but Obama looks like he DOES need a teleprompter.”

And Maher wasn’t the only celebrity melting down like the Wicked Witch of the West splashed with a bucket of ice cold water. “Gore 2016!!!!!” tweeted Bette Midler. “Romney gave a solid performance. He’ll gain in polls. Obama was very passive. This race just got very close. Scary,” tweeted Adam McKay, co-creator of Funny or Die, a leftist humor site dedicated in large part to slandering conservatives. Samuel L. Jackson, given to racist rants of late, preferred to suggest that the debate was meaningless – a contention he wouldn’t have made if Obama had won. “What Really happened tonite?!” he tweeted, in a motherf-ing rage. “NOBODY changed who they’re voting for!! NOBODY!!!” Rapper Lil Jon was more succinct: “EVERYBODY SAY IT WIT ME NOW #F—ROMNEY.”

he rage for many was palpable. Olivia Wilde, who has made a career out of kissing members of her own gender, tweeted, “Mittens, if you want the federal gov’t out of our health care decisions, then stay the F out of our VAGINAS. #debate2012.” Of course, Romney has never proposed that anyone go near Olivia Wilde’s vagina. Neither has any other conservative. She has full control over her own vagina. Apparently, she does not have full control over her mental faculties.

But she’s not alone.

Alec Baldwin went with the textbook “Obama’s too nice and smart for his own good” meme: “Obama is a potentially great man who remains mildly uncomfortable in public life. Mitt is a gifted off-shore money tycoon and tax preparer.” Well, no. Obama’s a horrible president who is more than comfortable in public life. He’s just not comfortable with criticism. And Romney showed himself to be a gifted debater with a tremendous command of the facts. But Lady Gaga agrees with Alec Baldwin: “I believe its important to note before this begins that Romney is a millionaire and paid well below the average tax rate, paying only 13.9%.” Well, Ms. Gaga, how about turning over some tax returns so we can see how much money you’ve handed over to the federal government,, and, equally important, how much you’ve given to charity? Or are you going to say your accountant’s likely use of tax loopholes merely happened because he was “born that way”?

Some of Hollywood just kept insisting that Obama had won. Eva Longoria, fresh off cutting a “war on women” ad for Obama, tweeted, “I’m in New Zealand watching the presidential debate! Obama is killing it on health care! #Obama2012.” She might want to rent in New Zealand if she’s going to remain this disconnected from realities here in the United States.

The best line of the night went to Chris Rock, an Obama partisan who also happens to be hysterically funny. “Obama is waiting for the right moment to pull out Bin Laden’s skull from behind the podium. Wait for it. Wait for it …” Sure enough, Obama trotted out the “I Killed Bin Laden” bumper sticker just before the end of the debate. It fell flat.

In truth, nobody should be happier than Hollywood about a potential Romney victory in the presidential race. Hollywood has suffered massively under the Obama administration. According to the Motion Picture Association of America, US/Canada admissions were down in 2010 and 2011, and slated to be down again this year. The only thing keeping revenues even close to even has been the rise of 3D movies and the uptick in ticket prices. But with demand falling, prices will soon have to fall as well.

As for television, the market remains increasingly fragmented by the internet. More importantly, the Obama administration’s rotten economy has hurt advertisers, which indirectly affects the profit margin of the TV industry. Only Fox gained ad revenue in 2011 of the major broadcast networks. CBS declined 3.3%; ABC’s fell 3.9%; NBC’s fell a whopping 12.9%.

What would help Hollywood? Less regulation. Less taxes. And a booming advertising market driven by consumers spending more money. That can only happen when people earn more money. Hollywood, more than any other industry, is dependent on the disposable income people have. When disposable income drops, as it has for the past four years, people cut back. And one of the places they cut is on their entertainment choices.

With Bill Clinton, Hollywood got the best of both worlds: a liberal president who governed as a conservative on the economy. But with Barack Obama, they’ve had to face the consequences of the socialism they claim to love. It’s clear that most in Hollywood would choose socialism over capitalism if given that choice, even if it hurt them – at least, that’s what they say. The truth is more complicated, and many Hollywoodites would simply blame capitalism for the failure of socialism, even if it is socialistic spending policy in states like California that drive socialistic Hollywood to produce its product elsewhere.

In the end, Hollywood’s opinion about the debate isn’t really going to matter. Mitt Romney has shown himself capable of speaking directly to the American people – and that’s what frightens Hollywood so much. For years, they’ve been able to control the political narrative because so few national Republicans have been up to the task of providing a direct alternative. Romney is a good communicator. And the Hollywood left has no clue how to deal with that. Neither does their favored candidate.

    Excited about belching of the Hollywood liberasts because "Obama's performance in the first presidential debate with Governor Mitt Romney was so abysmal"?

    The debate WAS a "performance" – but a performance of an ugly farce never heard in the history!

    1) Mr. Romney (as well as the entire nation) did not know for sure the name of the opponent he debated on 10/3/12. Was it Soetoro, or Soberkach, or Obama?.. No questions asked – in violation of all the laws of candidacy in all states.

    2) Romney debated a presidential contender who is a proven identity thief – not uttering a word about it.

    3) Romney debated a presidential contender implicated in forgery of his basic personal docs.

    By doing all the above, Romney have discredited the office of US Presidency for the entire world, demonstrating the loss of his own human dignity too. And demonstrating the loss of civility of this fallen nation.

    What a degenerated nation America became if the article seriously discusses the heights of rhetoric in the debates while one of the debaters is MERELY A THIEF AND FORGER! A thief to whom Romney extends his hand and keeps maintaining the taboo on the ugly truth about the thief, doing his dirty party business as usual. America has fallen beyond repair. I regret that I live to see this…

      You are exactly right, Mr. Gofen. These miscreant self-appointed pseudo geopolitical experts make me wonder that they must not realize that the hardcore lefties will come after their money after they confiscate all the wealthy job creators. I guess that all these too rich, arrogant, phony, low IQ parasites will be part of the ruling class that are of course, untouchable. They will be the next ones in line to have their money taken. The Narcissist-in-Chief will kick them to the curb after he is through using them. That is what narcissists do.

  • PaulRevereNow

    And to think that Alec Baldwin once played the part of William B. Travis, in a 1987 movie about the Alamo. It's a safe bet that he doesn't believe in freedom of religion(duh…what's that?), or freedom from confiscatory taxation; the two constructs that drove the Texas revolution. But then he's in the tank for Barry all the way, so he doesn't believe in ANY kind of freedom.

    • Larry

      Texas revolted against Mexico because the Mexican Govt in Mexico City decided to join the civilizes world and abolish slavery. (Even a broken clock is right twice a day, I'm still waiting for Mexico's second one)

      • PaulRevereNow

        What are your sources for your contention that the Mexican government was trying to abolish slavery? Remember that the Mexican government invited Americans into Texas in 1819; and while some slaves came to Texas as a result, there was no conspiracy to import large numbers of slaves into Texas, as some allege. But for the repressive policy of the Mexican government–forcing Texans to accept Catholicism, and confiscating 1/3 to 1/'2 of their cattle and crops, there wouldn't have been a Texas revolution. As to your comment about a broken clock, you get the PC historian of the week award.

    • objectivefactsmatter

      "30 Christian students executed by muslims in Nigeria – Why is BHO shouting about that so loud???
      Oh, he isn't……………………………………………?
      SHAME!!!! "

      He has been consistent and clear on this:

      In “Audacity of Hope” he writes: “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” The quote comes from page 261 of the paperback edition of “The Audacity of Hope."

      We may have assumed that meant legitimate persecution, but as we saw the president in action, all of his signals have been clearly showing he only cares about certain classes, Muslims being the most controversial, but not the only protected class.

      Christians are not a protected class under the Obama administration. Under Obama collectivism, the Christians who suffer are simply paying the price for "class justice." These Christians supposedly owe the world for all of the "Christian colonialism." To even mention this would hurt the religious feelings of Muslims, and we know we can not have that ever.

      Some may think I'm joking, but I'm accurately describing the words, actions and ideology of the president of the United States.

      "Hollywood has NOT made a Patriotic movie in a long time."

      If you understand their marketing approach, it's easy to see why the hippy movement killed most patriotic projects since the anti-war movement got going.

      "Even the British still keep things in the proper focus,BUT NOT HOLLYWOOD.
      That James Bond fights REAL Enemies,yet Jason Bourne and Alex Cross fight the CIA,is the perfect example."

      More frequently, the British productions use the CIA as enemy as well. See Spooks and other shows on the BBC. Nice, eh? The BBC might even be worse than Hollywood. Their documentaries are so biased, it's unreal.

    Hollywood has slipped from illusionists into delusionists as they follow the master of delusion into pathology. While freedom is from God and these blind followers of the blind work against freedom because spiritually they see delusions instead of reality.

    And when confronted with reality they don't know where to place it in their world view so deny it. Thus the debate just didn't happen as it happened and Romney isn't as he appeared to be. Because to them reality is delusion and delusion is reality.

    If Olivia Wilde wants the government to stay out of her vagina (and that of others like her), then she should have no trouble with the kind of attitude that says taxpayer money shouldn't be used to fund any of her "V-word"-related activities. That is, no taxpayer money for her contraceptives and if she gets pregnant, no taxpayer welfare subsidies for her. Her body, her self. On her dime.

    I bet Lady Gaga is a millionaire too. How does being a millionaire affect one's citizenship? His status vis-a-vis the tax laws? If she doesn't like it that Gov. Romney paid 13-plus % as his tax rate, maybe she should get to work changing the law and find out how her view pans out as compared with the mainstream view. Wait, oh no, that wouldn't be much fun, would it?

    If it actually came down to it, Hollywood would NEVER choose socialism over capitalism, but the problem is that they would preach socialism until socialism threatened to take over our economy, then they would pull back from the consequences of their partisanship, but it might be too late.
