Last night, President Barack and Michelle Obama celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary, as he debated his Republican challenger Mitt Romney as well.
On Thursday morning’s “Fox & Friends,” conservative commentator Ann Coulter suggested the president didn’t deliver the performance to woo his wife on such an occasion. Coulter, author of “Mugged: Racial Demagoguery from the Seventies to Obama,” said the president came off as someone that didn’t want to be re-elected.
“I think he’s trying to transmit to the American people he doesn’t want this job,” Coulter said. “‘Relieve me of my duties. I just want to golf and hang out with Scarlett Johansson.’”
She explained that Obama is the product of his own achievements, meaning he has not had to prepare for success.
“I really think he was a disaster,” she said. “I mean part of it is he’s never been challenged in his entire life. Every place he goes, he gets a standing ovation. He becomes president and wins the Nobel Peace Prize. He’s never been challenged before and it was up against McCain last time. And Romney was spectacular.”
“The fact that Obama didn’t prepare — I mean, this is like him not being prepared for the attack on our consulate,” Coulter added. “He never prepares. He just expects to walk out, be cool and get a standing ovation.”
Coulter speculated Obama was so bad last night, he wasn’t doing himself any favors to set the mood on his anniversary night.
“He was very, very bad last night,” she said. “He looked depressed. He looked anemic, those big ears poking out. The first time I watched the debate, I was mostly listening to it and Romney was killing and then I watched it again and before the end was actually watching it and the visual made it so much worse. Obama was depressed, looking down. You could see at the end of that debate, he knew that anniversary or not, Michelle wanted to go home with Mitt.”
