President Obama's supporters are having a hard time understanding how the momentum could have swung in Mitt Romney's direction so swiftly. A national poll shows Romney leading Obama by 4 points among likely voters.

In a post titled “Did Obama just throw the entire election away?,” the Daily Beast writer Andrew Sullivan expressed his dismay that Romney has overtaken Obama in the polls following the president's shockingly vapid performance during the first presidential debate last week.

"I’ve never seen a candidate this late in the game, so far ahead, just throw in the towel in the way Obama did last week," wrote the unapologetic Obama crusader.

Sullivan might not be familiar with the way narcissists like President Obama think. The narcissist's arrogance and lack of humility often fails him when he is preoccupied with his own self-importance.

Obama clearly thought he would win the debate by just showing up -- so why should he bother to prepare?

Sullivan wrote that Obama was "Too arrogant to take a core campaign responsibility seriously. Too arrogant to give his supporters what they deserve."

Sullivan continued:

Look: I’m trying to rally some morale, but I’ve never seen a candidate this late in the game, so far ahead, just throw in the towel in the way Obama did last week – throw away almost every single advantage he had with voters and manage to enable his opponent to seem as if he cares about the middle class as much as Obama does. How do you erase that imprinted first image from public consciousness: a president incapable of making a single argument or even a halfway decent closing statement? And after Romney’s convincing Etch-A-Sketch, convincing because Obama was incapable of exposing it, Romney is now the centrist candidate, even as he is running to head up the most radical party in the modern era.

National polls are not reliable when predicting the outcome of presidential races.

      That's how Mama Jones describes her new fragrance PumKásh which is a combination of the words PumPum and Cash (Because PumPum makes money--her explanation, not ours). In the commercial for the scent, Mama Jones walks into a club and all the men are captured by the allure of her PumKash (the scent of a woman).

      She's been trying to get her son Jim Jones & future daughter-in-law Chrissy to sign on to this mess on the "Chrissy & Mr. Jones" show.

      I was trying to find an eloquent way to say this, but I couldn't. Obama doesn't want to win again. He can't wait his term to end. I was going to pose the question on twitter. If you're the President, are you obligated to run for a second term or is it just expected of you because of tradition?

      I guess the pain would be worse if he just bowed out.
