Debate Summary; I Was Wrong!
Yesterday my blog predicted that last night's debate would be "vanilla" and shed very little light on the candidates' issues. I was wrong! Last night Mitt Romney mopped up the floor with Barack Obama.
Romney used facts and statistics to literally destroy the Obama camp's six month campaign of lies and distortions.
First of all, "Professor Obama" and "Emperor Obama" seemed indignant at having to show up and explain his policies. No longer The Anointed One, Obama, this time, was forced to try and explain away his 47 million Food Stamp Army, his 23 million fellow Americans who are unemployed and his failed policies to spur this recessive economy.
Obama failed to do so. Though Obama was given more time to speak than the minutes allotted to Romney, Obama spent much of that time hemming and hawing and glaring angrily at his opponent. Romney threw out facts and figures and offered solid and specific solutions to our nation's problems.
Some of the most devastating points made were surprisingly about health care. Romney pointed out that, when 23 million people were unemployed, President Obama was more concerned about ramming a 2300 page socialist Obamacare program down America's throat. Romney specifically ask the President "how could you ignore your fellow Americans suffering and expend two years of your passion to get Obamacare passed?" When Obama tried to brag about his health care achievement Romney countered with the fact that the average health care premium has gone up 25% this year alone!
When Obama sneered and accused Romney of not understanding how hard it is to work with the opposing party Romney countered with the fact that he was successful in Massachusetts with a legislature that was 87% Democratic! Romney further offered that, as President, he'll sit down with both parties to work out solutions. Obama's tactic has been to issue "royal edicts" from on high and ignore Republicans entirely.
Each time Obama tried throwing out one of his "campaign lies" Romney met him head on, labelling it as a lie and offering specifics on any distortion Obama tried to make. By the time we were half way through the debate Obama was angry, glaring at Romney, even failing to look Romney in the eye.
I hear the liberals on Facebook and Twitter were really giving it to Obama, saying that their anointed one "fail to show up". They shouldn't be surprised. Obama and his liberal army have been living on lies for months and when those lies were destroyed right before his very eyes Obama was unable to offer a response.
Finally, the Great Obama was lost without his teleprompter and without his adoring liberal press to throw hosannas at anything he utters. Obama appeared to be a little boy who has just been told by his teacher that he's getting an "F" for effort.
Look at the polls closely in the next few days, folks. I suspect the American people took a good look at The Anointed One and saw that the emperor had no clothes.
