A couple of comments on the debate last night. Well… more than a couple, I guess…
It was supposed to be Romney v. Obama. Turned out it was Romney v. Obama-Crowley.
When Obama got into trouble, usually with his lies, Crowley came to his rescue by interrupting Romney and even telling Romney once to “Sit down.”
When Obama was stuck, Crowley acted as his teleprompter, proving yet again Obama can’t stay on-message or complete a sentence or a thought on his own.
… and in a bizarre coincidence, Democrats got more time in all three debates thus far. Who’d’a thunk?
The media? Biased? Nahhhhhhh……
The questions Crowley chose were all Obama-weighted questions:
she alone decided the topics for the debate, picking questions from the 80 so-called “undecided” voters chosen by the Gallup polling organization. Her selections were tailor-made for Mr. Obama — Mitt Romney’s tax plan, women’s rights and contraception, outsourcing, immigration, the Libya debacle (which gave Mr. Obama to finally say that the buck stops with him, not, as Hillary Clinton said, with her).
She even chose this question, directed to both men: “I do attribute much of America’s economic and international problems to the failings and missteps of the Bush administration. Since both of you are Republicans, I fear the return to the policies of those years should you win this election. What is the biggest difference between you and George W. Bush, and how do you differentiate yourself from George W. Bush?”
Yesterday the web was all abuzz about how this woman could be fair after she called the Romney pick of Ryan a “ticket death wish.” And the fems were all hot’n’bothered about Crowley not being allowed to run the debate however she wished – when the CONTRACT signed by BOTH campaigns stipulated she could only direct the questions, and BOTH campaigns had expressed irritation that she was saying she wouldn’t abide by the contractual terms of the debate. The fems wanted to know why anyone thought she couldn’t do it correctly – just because she was a woman? That the issue raised by BOTH campaigns had nothing to do with gender and everything to do with the terms of the contract under which the debate was to be run seems completely to have escaped the fems…
Maybe we should now ask the fems what happened?
Bet they wish the first woman to moderate a presidential debate on 20+ years hadn’t been so unable to live-up to the moment, and went so far in the tank for Obama. (Bet there are alot of blacks & liberal whites who wish the first African-American president wasn’t such a loser, that he had governed as he campaigned, too…)
Romney was absolutely correct regarding the oil & gas lease rate decline. Obama flat-out lied about it. Romney used BLM numbers. Someone might want to ask The Won who’s lying – his own BLM… or himself.
Obama flat-out lied re: Benghazi. He did NOT call it an act of terrorism in the Rose Garden on his way to Vegas – and everyone there knew it; we’ve been watching this for a month as the Obama team figures out how to deal with the lies over Libya. Crowley, naturally, bailed him out, but later even she admitted Romney was right and she ought not to have interceded. No kidding.
Obama blamed the video six times at the UN.
Obama’s UN Ambassador, Susan Rice, spent time on every major Sunday news talk show blaming the video and a “spontaneous protest” that never existed. It is simply NOT credible she did not get her talking orders from Obama.
Obama’s Secretary of State, Hilary, blamed the video and spent $70,000 tax dollars apologizing to the pre-literate, pre-modern muslim world for the First Amendment.
Obama now flat out LIES to the world – AGAIN – about his reaction.
Obama doesn’t seem to understand…. WE HAVE THE VIDEO. What a tool. The ONLY ones who still believe Obama are the bottom feeders of his true-believer, fellow-traveler base.
Obama is a LIAR and doesn’t care who knows it.
Anyone think Putin and Ahmadinejad weren’t paying attention? Really?
Watergate was a bad cover-up of a third-rate burglary. Benghazi-gate is an attempted, utterly-failed cover-up-in-plain-sight of a coordinated, heavy-weapons attack on Americans on sovereign American soil, the murder of four Americans, including the first American ambassador killed since Jimmy Carter opened the gates of Islamofascist terror in 1979, gates that Obama has been trying for four years to break down completely.
Bottom line? Obama last night was an angry, petulant, spoiled liar helped along by the “moderator.” Romney was shocked (shouldn’t have been) when Obama flat-out lied about Libya and so didn’t know how to respond to such blatant lies on national – international – television. Since the next debate is on foreign policy, Obama has just given Romney an entire week to hammer him on it, prep for Obama’s lies in the next debate, left Benghazigate out there for the media to feast on, and certainly will build some commercials around the fact that Obama just LIED to America – and the world – about Benghazi. AGAIN!
These FORMER Obama voters said Romney was:
“Forceful, compassionate, presidential,” one participant said.
“Confident and realistic,” said another.
“Presidential,” another told Luntz.
“Enthusiastic,” another reacted.
“Our next president,” one man said.
Oh yeah – and before the TV guys could bleep him, one former Obama voter said, “He’s lied about everything. He lied to get elected in 2008, that’s why I voted for him. I bought his bull. And he’s lied about everything, he hasn’t come through on anything. And he’s been bullshitting the public.”
Not the reaction The Won had hoped for from those who put him in the White House four years ago…. Over at MSNBC the reaction was the same – a group of indie voters called it for Romney.
Matthews must have crapped his pants.
So ask yourself, what’s been the reaction of the Party of Diversity, Tolerance and Civility? Most pundits have called this debate a tie or a bit for Obama. And the “Progressive” Party has reacted… how?
Social media threats to kill Romney expoloded… guess they, too, understand Obama is on his way to retirement in Hawaii. Even Obama seeems to know this, speaking of his presidency in the past tense. He really CAN’T handle himself off-teleprompter, can he?
For 223 years America has had peaceful transitions of power. Until the Baby Boomers became the major force in American politics. The Clintonites had on a mini-tantrum when Gore couldn’t even carry his own state (which would have made FL irrelevant), stealing furniture and removing all the “w” keys from White House keyboards like the kindergartners they really are. And now? The Left is about to lose the best chance they ever have had to destroy America, liberty, the free market, the Rule of Law – and the West. And they are going nuts and threatening violence if their candidate doesn’t win… and his destruction is not allowed to continue.
Yesterday, pre-debate, Gallup had it Romney 50%, Obama 46%.
And now, after yet-another-MSM in-the-tank debate? Gallup: Romney 51%, Obama 45%.
… and remember, Gallup leans left.
Several months back I noted that whenever the MSM ran a debate in the GOP Primary Obama’s numbers dropped… Looks to be pretty clear that all of America understands how far in the tank the MSM is for the Dems… and reacts accordingly.
So – the next – and last – presidential debate of 2012 is Monday, 22 October, from Boca Raton, FL, at 9PM EST.
And the moderator? …. Bob Schiefer, CBS news….
