We’ll soon find out if the President’s peremptory posturing plays in Peoria.

To prevent further grade inflation, I have re-scaled the curve. The highest grade will be A+++.

No pushing at the door please!

Hillary's peremptory "It's my fault speech" before the debate ended up making Obozo look stupid last night for being second to admit where the buck stops.

We heard a lot of peremptory charges from pres’ent Obama last night, and Candy Crowley made sure that soon-to-be President Romney did not have a chance to answer.

Romney diffused Obama’s attack on the 47% comment with a peremptory defense, but it went unnoticed by the media.

Anybody who doesn't believe there is media bias should have been disabused of that notion last night. Besides saving Obama from his tortured timeline on Benghazi, the very questions that were chosen came right out of Axelrod's notebook.

The worst was the "What are you going to do to correct the inequality of women earning 72% as much as men for doing the same work?" We had a lesson on "begging the question" a while back. That was a perfect example.

Very perceptive. I had to think about how Mitt had inoculated himself against that attack.

Peremptory

Roscoe drank a pint jar of Nofavors Triple Rectified Headbust Spirits with the greasy cracklin’s and his inards went from peremptory to complete emptory as he leaned on the hood of the slum limo.

Every time I serve jury duty, the defense mounts a peremptory challenge against me.

The first time I heard the word, it was in that forum. I have also been chased from the jury by a peremptory challenge. When the facts don’t favor them, lawyers don’t want anyone with an I.Q. above 80 passing judgment.

(See “The State of California vs. Orenthal James Simpson.”)

And, despite Candy’s ministrations (not to be confused with minestrone,) it has become quite obvious that the per-emperor has no clothes.

The elevation of idiots like John Paul Stevens to the highest court in the land is the reason we end up with peremptory edicts from the SubPrime Court.

See this is why I have taken a peremptory stand opposing such interventions.

LOL! I was headed that way, but couldn't decide between menstrual and minstrel, the former insulting Ms. Crowley and the latter insulting the President. Moochelle would have been able to pick and choose. "Montster-al" works for the lot of them.

The peremptory attack by Candy Crowley, for the Eye Candy himself, turned out to be continuing a lie. We all know Obama never called the killing of our American Ambassador and three other Americans terrorism. He said it was a riot over a video gone awry. Liar, liar pants on fire.

Only in Candyland did Obama win that debate. Mitt walked away the clear winner of more votes. That's the only thing that counts. Looks like the undecided voter panels went overwhelmingly went for Romney. Game, set....the match comes on Nov6th, and it is final.

I just did a quick scan of abc cnn and msnbc websites - not one has the crowley backtrack easily available, when in fact I just saw on Fox that she said it actually took closer to a MONTH for bammer to claim it was terrorism....but the liberals will never see that

Pathetic, isn’t it? He wanted to be seen as an alpha male last night, but he was obviously hiding under Candy’s voluminous skirt-but where Hillary is concerned, I don’t see her going gently into that goodnight-she will quite rightly try to geld him-likely with Bill’s help...

I agree....

Rush seems to be seeing this from the view point of the average person who generally has selective hearing.....

It's what I was sayin last night while texting my friends and watching the debate. The bengazi thing only succeeded in making people see the clear media bias and Obozo trying to make the people believe he had called this a terrorist thing isn't going to register, we all would have heard that comment (Maybe they're trying to get us to believe we're all hallucinating again) when we have already been fed three lies by Obozo and company and now Romney has Obozo and the Media caught in this latest lie just in time for the final debate in Florida.

Sporting a peremptory attitude
And the moderator’s assistance
Obama attempted to overcome
The shade of any resistance

A debate is not the best place
To tell lies and spin that way-
Mounting attacks to bury facts
Won’t cause opinions to sway

It looks as if the tough guy act
Didn’t convince us all that he won-
After one more debate, get a plate
And a fork-I think he’s done...

And I think his surrogates pissed the people at Gallup off with their attitude toward their polls-Gallup shows Romney up another 2 points this AM...

No easy way to campaign in earnest till Hillary finishes this gig as Sec of State...I think late January she hits the trail. She will talk foreign policy without any QandA allowed. Like she did when she ran for NY Senator on the endless listening tour. With secret service acting to keep those pesky reporters at bay.

I was saying, the fat lady has sung and she didn’t hit a note. I think folks get it that Obama denied it was terrorism. Splitting hairs just further weakens the MSM hold on Americans. Do I believe what you tell me to, or do I believe my own lying eyes?
