Eastwood was right! And an empty chair showed up again.

Posted on 10/03/2012 9:20:04 PM PDT by 7thOF7th

The empty chair makes a reappearance tonight in the form of a woefully unprepared Obama.

He walked into the debate bleeding. He could not defend himself.

Romney just helped the bleeding along.

Mitt had facts, figures, and 4 years of the abject failure of hussein’s policies on his side going in. Wasn’t even close to a fair fight. By not backing down to hussein or the moderator, talking over them when he had to, Mitt showed me some cajones I wasn’t sure he had until now. I expect Mr. Ryan to utterly take apart Biden. I watched tonight to see how Mitt would do. I’ll watch Paul purely for the entertainment value of seeing Biden self-destruct.

Funny, and true! I expected to be bored silly and tuned in late, but I stayed to the end and kinda wish I had seen the start of it.

Mitt's work tonight was a gift to a lot of people. He was competent and took obama apart. It was obvious and now, the media has a reason to be honest about obama. Like with Eastwood's chair and overall message, they'll be talking about tonight. Why?

Mitt showed up and introduced us to obama. The real one.

Obama was part Nixon circa 1960 and part Jimmeh Carter circa 1980. Plus, what was up with his weary demeanor and hollowed out eye sockets?? The man looks very tired.

Mitt kicked dirt in Barry’s face and then took his lunch money.

I found a tweet from Michael Moore, of all people, who was also down on the zero. If I find it again I’ll post it.

I’m sure he is tired. It takes hard work destroying this country.

I found Michael Moore’s tweets:

CriticalThought replied on the Washington Post poll, "It's not all negative for Obama, I think we can all agree that Obama did improve a little since his debate with Clint Eastwood in Tampa."

Oh my gosh, so funny!

About Michael Moore - He was not from Flint. He was not born there, he did not go to school there. He lived in a town where people from Flint moved to because of "White Flight," that thing Obama complained about in that 2007 speech about people leaving the poor behind.

A friend of mine rented a house from him and he was a lousy landlord.

Mitt Romney ‏@M1TTR0MNEY Clint Eastwood just called me. He told me I might as well have debated an empty podium considering Obama didn't have much to say. LOL

perhaps his debate practice partner, John Kerry (of Vietnam fame) wore him out with his tales of ‘Nam’

Sullivan and all of the other Obama worshipers are crying their eyes out tonight, but, really, how many people had their minds changed tonight? My guess is 20-80.

Seriously, most people made up their minds long ago. It is not as if Romney and Obamarxist are anywhere near each other ideologically, so no voter was sitting there watching the debate and waiting to see some subtle difference in a plan or a vision that would change his vote.

Furthermore, most Obama voters do not even pay attention to the news and will vote for him no matter what.

Romney did very well, IMO, but, while it made many on our side feel better, hearts and minds were not changed.

I beg to differ, I think up to this point, a lot of people really didn’t know Romney, from other than what the Democrats portrayed him to be....I think last night they really saw Romney for the first time as he really is, and realize that he wasn’t what they thought he was.

Others had more of a “wait and see” approach to Romney, and I think those also came away impressed...I think last night’s debate was HUGE.

Do you honestly believe that there were people leaning Obama who changed their minds?

Believe me when I tell you that I am praying I am wrong about this.

I do....I think they saw Obama exposed in a way they never saw before last night...I think a lot of illusions people had about him were shattered.

The only thing Obama has going for him is that he was “The Devil You Know.” But I think Romney convinced people that he could do the job last night.

You give the average Obama voter way too much credit. Any of them that were disappointed with his performance will make a thousand excuses for him.

Again, I really, really want to be wrong about this.
