Obam-uh: Buzzfeed shines spotlight on what we’ve known all along

President Obama may never live down last night’s abysmal debate performance, and Buzzfeed is doing its part to make sure that’s the case.

Generally speaking, the “real journalists” at Buzzfeed have been in the tank for Obama and have exhibited a clear bias against conservatives. That makes it all the more remarkable that a Buzzfeeder, Dorsey Shaw, put together a video that puts Obama’s ineloquence in the spotlight.

Shaw’s colleagues promoted it on their Twitter feeds as well:

A couple of lefties whined about the way the video portrayed The One:

This shows how hard it is to go back and forth w/opponent for 90mins in front of millions. Obama: “Uh” http://t.co/eAQCvFXv via @buzzfeed

Sighagain with the excuses. Having to participate in presidential debates when you’re president is so unfair!

Most of those who watched the video, though, placed the blame for the bumbling squarely where it belongs — with Obama:

HA! (And, uh…PAINFUL) RT @BuzzFeedAndrew: All the times President Obama said "uh." http://t.co/sIJOuZo6 http://t.co/81GFr8rS

Indeed. The constant bumbling and stumbling is exactly what we’ve come to expect from Barack Obama. The “uh” fit last night? Par for the course.

51 seconds of Obama saying "Uh"…I smell a Natl Endowment of the Arts grant! http://t.co/rnN4STbj via @buzzfeed
