I’ve found the theme song for the rest of this election season. A little feel-good Carter era Styx.

Faith be with me now!

I was redistricted and just saw a commercial on FOX from the Dem candidate. OMG, it was a ladyparts appeal. I cracked up. Young beautiful women shown, till they mentioned Rep...then the woman was old and frowning as he told us Reps will deny women healthcare.

Bayonets, wasn’t that a hoot? Did you notice he tried to modify how he says Pockestan? ROFL Must have been some debate prep counseling. And he managed not to try the word corpsman.

If he was trying, he failed miserably. I noticed his continuing “foreign” pronunciation.

Yare

The word that goes right before Matey, “Yare Matey!”.

To pronounce this word properly cover one eye with a black patch.

A yare Romney managed to avoid confrontation with Obama throughout most of the debate last night. O’Reilly says it was boring, and I have to agree. Romney had a couple of good lines, but he said that he agreed with Obama most of the time.

The biggest obstacle for Romney last night would have been to be portrayed as another Bush warmonger. He avoided that, thus he passed the foreign affairs test. I don’t agree with bOre that it was boring, but I’m a political junkie, unlike most Americans.

I’m a political junkie too, but I was busy multitasking during the debate (and feeling guilty about NOT being at an important school board meeting to support a friend). My habit of listening to these debates, instead of actually WATCHiNG them, contributed to my feeling of boredom. Apparently I missed the visual cues of the President looing angry and grim and the challenger looking smiling, calm and controlled.

I thought Romney had some good lines — especially about Israel and the apology tour — but it was not as exciting as previous encounters. Thus, it suffered in the minds of those less politically attuned.

There seemed to be a certain yare in Romney's responses last night that appeared to point toward a man who has the confidence that he will be the next President of the United States.

On a side note, I couldn't get the image out of my head of that Duke and Duke brother from the movie "Trading Places" screaming, "Come Back!..... Come back!.... Turn the machines back on..... Turn the machines back on!....... to sum up Obozo's desperate performance.....

Several things contributed to the snoozefest that was last night:

1. Debate fatigue. We’re all debated out.
2. Romney was just running out the clock, handling the ball off-tackle to his fullback. He only needed to not offend.
3. Obama gives the same answers, same talking points that he does in every appearance. Nothing new except his increasing sense of superiority.

When Obama laughed while Romney was speaking, I was shouting YES! Keep channeling that loser, JoeyB. But, Obama managed to restrain himself for the most part. Not his stare and his demeanor though. He acted like a candidate down in the polls who was debating a President Romney. Instead of answering questions, he wasted time trying to say things about Romney and looking petty. Romney managed to look presidential with ease.

Yes, it was. The same album also has a song on it called “Eddie.” When I was 11 years old, I had no idea what this was about:

***********************

Can we ignore the basic facts of history
Or deny what people say is destiny
First in the eighties, but last of the sons
First in the eyes of his countrymen
I think the message is ever so loud and clear

Eddie, now don’t you run
You know you’re a bootlegger’s son
And you saw just what it’s done to the others

Eddie, now don’t you run
It’s the end of all your fun
And you saw just what they done to your brothers

By doing other things and just listening (the TV was on in the same room where I was surfing the web, working on a Sudoko, and handling the daily mail) I noticed the number of times the Pres’ent said “I”. It was I, I, I, and me. I wonder if anyone ever counts those. That was followed by You, you, and you. There was little information passed.

I was telling my Irate mother, who was hyperventilation in Ohio last night because Romney wasn't giving her enough red meat, to calm down and remember not many people will care about this last debate. It's all about the sh!tty economy and anyone who is still iffy about Mitt is looking for the nice guy who's going to get along and bring us PEACE and prosperity. Romney accomplished that last night......I can't wait to get Rush's take today.

I was glad Mitt didn't go after the carrots on a stick that Obozo and Bob "Shuffler" were waving at him.

Obozo needed a fight last night and he didn't get it...so they couldn't make Romney look like a white guy beating up on the black guy for their meme for the next week. Instead Obozo looked like a spoiled child throwing a hissy fit.....

Did you notice that the side by side image of Obozo and Romney last night had a larger-closer image of Obozo on the screen, while Romney was further back and smaller?

I thought Obama appeared to be like the jerk at a party trying to jump in and look really cool. He sat there like an attack dog waiting to pounce. He let loose with one JoeyB style laugh, then stared like a cat watching a mouse. He didn’t play the part of POTUS, Romney nailed that. It was fascinating. Romney got through it unscathed. Obama was so desperate to mock him and show his superiority that he came off as the classic jerk no one likes.

The final debate wasn’t yare
And Mitt made no effort to star
Didn’t diddle or fiddle
Drove the ball down the middle
No eagles, no birdies, just *par

*When you’re on the last hole of the final round
and your internals tell you that you’ve got the
match in hand, it would be foolish to be overly aggressive.

what did Obams say that will screw him over with the Navy folks? i saw on twitter they said he was going to be dead to them and then Jim Geraghty just had this in his Morning Jolt:

On CNN, John King said that you'll see the president's "ships and aircraft carriers" comments in Romney television ads in Virginia. May I recommend the D.C., Norfolk, and Newport News television markets?

The very first question out of the gate showed Romney to be a bit hesitant. That faded pretty quick, but he had me worried with his demeanor with that one.

I sense that he {romney} thinks he has this in hand, and Obams also knows that HE is slipping away. it comes through in their demeanor. Don’t you think?

Romeny made a point that the Navy needs more ships, that is has fewer ships than in 1918 (or some long ago year). Obama then stated that we also have fewer horses and bayonets than back then.

Then he went on a condescending rant about how we have ships where airplanes can land called “air craft carriers” and ships that go under water called “submarines.”

It was classic Obama talking down.

Romney did make a mistake by going so back in history, but Obama really made an ass of himself.

That rant of Obama’s was a riot. He talked down and tried to demean Romney with it. What he failed to remember is he is talking to all Americans as well. Not likeable with it. Then a marine tweeted that they still use bayonets. It was priceless.

At several points I thought O'bamboozler was going to reach out and slap Romney and at another point I thought he was going to spit on him too.....

None of that goes over well with the "Oh can't we all just get along" Independents and women..... and it reinforces those who have just decided to vote for Romney, to stay with Romney.

Those lines about Israel last night were priceless and designed to make the Jewish vote move to the right. I was jumping up and down laughing when Romney said, "You skipped Israel.....(on your Apology tour)" and "They noticed you skipped them"........Just Priceless!

Ya I was worried too...but looking back on it now, it seemed like a Romney "Rope a Dope" trick for Obozo.

I also told my irate mom last night that Romney has to be seeing something in his internals that the rest of us are unaware of, to be sitting back last night, playing calm, cool, collected, prevent defense.....

I did catch that right before bed. His focus group liked it, which I find appalling. They liked they idea that “technology” means we can fight better with fewer ships, but the Obama attitude was so offputing I was surprised by the reaction.

Most of his group thought Obama did better on FP aspects of debate (which makes no sense to me), but stated that FP doesn’t matter. It’s the economy stupid, and Romney wins on that.

I noticed the bosom blonde in the front row and the black women in the second were Dem plants. No way with their loud Obama cheering were they undecideds. I found them loud and crass.

Was the focus group Dems and Reps? Or undecideds? I missed their intro.

i heard some of the Luntz group feedback this AM on the way in on XM via FOx and Friends and i heard them saying that Obams did well. i was astounded. but the paralegal quickly informed me when i got here this AM that the group also said that the economy trumped FP and that they were aware that Obams doesn’t win on that, so i felt better.

I disagreed with Kraut’s assessment of the last debate when he claimed ozero won on points, but then the polls showed Romney won on every issue. So I didn’t understand what points Dr. K was tallying. I listened to it in the car on the way home from bible study and was yelling “not true!” at ozero’s responses. I didn’t care for his trying to look intimidating death stares and his frequent interruptions either. No manners, no class.

even sight unseen, several of the comments sounded to me like Dem plants and not undecided. the comments praising him were far too scripted and didn’t sound remotely spontaneous.

I think it was a calculated move, going back to 1917, because we won that WW BY USING SUBMARINES! You know, the ships that go under the water? He should have been slapped for that condescension. Also, how can we be a force in the Pacific without enough ships. And does ozero realize that aircraft carriers ARE ships? And that Marines still use bayonets?

I laugh at their highfaluting debate point tallies. What counts is did the argument they presented win American votes. That is the poll that counts. Demeanor counts in that poll. I think Romney won all 3 debates with that in mind. He WON votes. The polls had to swing to show that or the pollsters would look like Dem fakes when Romney wins. Obama has been losing votes with each debate. This final two weeks will continue to show Romney pulling away. No one will show a landslide, but I think the Nov6th poll will.

It’s easier if you start with the premise that Obama wants to reduce America’s influence in the world and will say anything as long as he can get it done.

Yes. Bamster is writing off Va. That was clear from his goofy comment last night. Now it is all up to Ohio, or Wisconsin, or Penn, or Iowa & New Hampshire, I'm assuming CO is in the bag and NV is not which puts us 8 EV's away. Although I like Sunnunu's target of 305 EV's.
