That whooshing sound you heard, after the first presidential debate on Wednesday night, was the collective exhalation of the breath of every Patriot Tea Party member in the nation. Wed all hoped that Mitt Romney would at least hold his own with the Anointed One, whose brilliance, we had been assured by the Lame Stream Press, eclipsed that of all mortal men.
To my absolute delight, after the first few minutes, it became readily apparent that Mitt Romney not only had the effrontery to challenge the media messiah he neatly filleted him in a gentlemanly sort of way. Its what we didnt see that enthused me the most. We didnt see the milquetoast Romney that the leftover hacks from the Bushees have tried to create. Oh(wringing of hands),dont attack Obama, youll be seen as racist. Youll offend the minority vote. Ooh, dont do that, youll lose the womens vote. Dont do this and dont do that and we saw the results of that kind of thinking all over the John McCain disaster in 2008.
Ill have to admit that I feared that Romney wouldnt come out swinging. I was delighted to see that I was wrong. Some conservatives were grousing that Mitt didnt do this and didnt do that but what was overwhelmingly apparent was that he did plenty enough to destroy Obamas worn-out commie blather. It wasnt even close.
What was most telling to me was that when the debate started, I was listening to it on the radio (since I was doing work on the computer), then when I did switch over to visual the contrast was striking MaoBama clearly out of his element. No bought-and-paid-for audience of witless college students or union goons. No adoring crowds of welfare recipients. He looked like a defeated man. Could Romney have hit him harder? Sure he could. But I think he hit just the right tone for this debate.
MaoBama will not be caught out quite this unprepared again. But he is, as has been pointed out, lazy. Hes been pampered and sheltered all of his private and public life. What hes trying to sell is a lie. Obama is the penultimate result of the Marxist movement in this country. He is their golden boy. But what hes selling is evaporating like swamp gas before the march of reality.
Its taken four long years for the blinders to come off of the American people. Ive talked to a number of disillusioned people who supported Obama whether to expiate the self-inflicted mythic white guilt, or because they were sick to death of the antics of a Republican government who behaved exactly as the Democrats they claimed to oppose. Its tough to admit that you were taken in sort of like being suckered by a carney hustler.
I have many friends who would be classified as minorities (at least by the DeMarxists, because they see everyone as a sub-classification). They, however, dont see themselves that way and neither do I. We are Americans first, last and foremost. Thats the last thing that MaoBama and the DeMarxists want to see a unified and purposeful patriotic electorate. But thats exactly what they are going to see in November.
