President Obama might think sagging polls are his biggest post-debate problem. But it’s really people like Buzz Bissinger, Stacey Dash and Bill Maher showing it’s now acceptable in polite society to attack The One.
In an eye-opening piece Monday on the Daily Beast, “Friday Night Lights” author and lifelong Democrat Buzz Bissinger announced he was voting for Romney.
The tipping point, he wrote, “was last week’s debate in Denver,” which showed Obama out of energy and out of ideas. Obama is “no longer the chosen one. He is just too cool for school in a country desperate for the infectiousness of rejuvenation.”
The day before, Washington Post blogger Chris Cillizza wrote that Obama’s debate performance “raised a bigger question: Is he overrated as a candidate?” Before the debate, Cillizza admits, such a question “would have been unimaginable.”
Also Sunday, black actress Stacey Dash decided to tell her quarter-million Twitter followers they should “Vote for Romney. The only choice for your future.”
And Bill Maher, once so enamored of Obama he wrote a $1 million check to his Super PAC, now wonders if Obama “took my million and spent it all on weed.”
