Posted on 09/26/2012 5:02:40 AM PDT by Evil Slayer
The upcoming Presidential debate on October 3 is the most important single event in Mitt Romneys political career.
The elite news media is doing everything they can to convince Romneys supporters that the election is lost.
Americans will be tuning in that evening to see if Governor Romney turns this media narrative on its head.
This will be the first time Americans will see President Obama and his challenger side by side.
This will be the largest audience to watch the two men side by side without editing or distortion by the media. If Romney wins this debate, the next debate will have an even larger audience. If he loses it, the elite media will be giddy in its intense reporting of an Obama victory and the Obama team will be giddy and energized by the proclamation of victory.
The media will attempt to pounce on a strong Obama debate and try to bring back up Bain Capital, 47 percent, income tax returns and a host of wounds as perceived by the left.
On the other hand, a Romney victory will destroy the false media narrative that is determined to avoid President Obamas failure. Suddenly, unemployment over 8 percent, gasoline rising from $1.89 when Obama was elected to $3.89 today, massive deficits, Obamacare, weakness in foreign policy and a host of other failures will rush to the forefront.
Obviously a lot depends on this debate.
And much of the outcome depends on events and actions which are not part of normal debate preparation.
I have been observing Presidential debates since the very first debates in 1960 between John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon.
Sometimes the outcome of a debate can turn on the most trivial thing.

Don’t let them see you sweat. Don’t have a 5 o’clock beard shadow. Don’t keep looking at your watch.
You're absolutely right.
I can see it now...
NBC, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, BBC, REUTERS, NY TIMES... etc:
“Why is the debate so important? We already know that the media will say that Obama won the debate, easily. And, since so few people actually will watch the debate, it is a slam dunk for Obama that he has already won the debate...just ask ABC, CBS, MSNBC, NBC and MSNBC.”
True. Whatever Romney said will be declared a GAFFE. But again, the press keeps overplaying their hand. They immediately pounced on Romney’s comments on the Cairo apology as a GAFFE, but the American public doesn’t see it that way.
Also, I don’t think Zero has EVER had a challenging debate in his life. He has never had to answer tough questions, and if Romney treats Zero the way he did Gingrich in the debates, I think Zero is going to blow up or be obviously rattled. Zero is very thin-skinned. (oops — that makes me a racist for saying ‘thin-skinned’)
Yup. Plus the questions will be loaded against Romney. He can't possibly 'win'. Best we can hope for is to hold his own. Also while all the above are going to come up with 'gaffes' for their headlines for the following few weeks, hopefully there won't be anything that will get a lot of traction.
How about: "I believe in our Constitution. This means that I will honor my oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic. I will honor the Constitution's intent by charging the Legislature with proposing laws, instead of avoiding the constitutional process by using executive orders. As the Constitution orders the President to "take care that the laws be faithfully executed," I will hold the Department of Justice responsible for enforcing the law, not changing it. I will be a president who honors the Constitution, the liberty it gives us, and the spirit of independence that fostered this great nation of ours."
That's what I want to hear in the debate from Mr. Romney.
I hope Romney has the ‘kihones’ to take the gloves off during the debates and say THERE YOU GO AGAIN! It would bring the house down. And the press would cry foul, but it would be a thumb in eye to Zero. And it would get traction, and people would start to repeat it. And if the lame-stream wants to cry GAFFE then it would just give it more attention, and just like the Cairo GAFFE, people would see it for the truth.
Don’t try to be an alpha male when you’re not:
He hasn't ... and Romney had plenty of time 'under fire' during the primary debates. Obozo's head is so large with the importance of his own Obamaness, I don't think he'll be able to resist his lecturing, preachy mode ... he won't be able to hide his ego and arrogance. Personally, I find the guy offensive ... nobody in our family can stand to watch him. An uncle (ex-Navy pilot) has taken to screaming at the TV and making suggestions that include a trip to DC that I won't repeat here, to the extent that his wife is seriously worried about his health. This is the effect Obozo is having on non-liberal-diseased brains so if Romney looks calm, collected, shows leadership and can explain himself well, I think he'll do just great & President 'bump-in-the-road', 'you-didn't-build-that', redistributionist Obozo might find out he's not the know-all, end-all, be-all he thinks he is.
The first debate has to be the turning point.
Mittens must turn into an ultimate warrior.
Mitt needs to ignore the moderators questions and march to his own drummer.
Q: Are you concerned that your gaffe about criticizing the President of the United States of Americas Mid-East policies caused the rape and murder of US citizens abroad may make you an accessory to murder?
A: The Mid East policy of the unknown person who has gained control of both the Presidency and the Media is to unite the moon worshiping inhabitants under the banner of the Muslim Brotherhood which was spawned eighty years ago by none other than Adolph Hitler.
Obama is a fraud and is the enemy of the Constitution and plans to make all Americans either subservient to his evil god or dead. Either way it does not matter to scum such as this impostor that now threatens all that is good and decent in the world.
The current regime has declared war on freedom, on free enterprise, and on freedom of thoughts and expression. The only thing that Obama and his evil minions, and I do not exclude the moderator, have accomplished in the last few years is to prove that Freedom is fragile.
WE THE PEOPLE must unite to stop this vile creature from dowsing the last lamp of freedom on the planet.
This is the moment in history, that YOU decide the fate of your children and grandchildren.
America has two centuries of being an exceptional
role model of freedom and advancement of all that is good and decent, because when the time of defending our inalienable rights from attack, our ancestors have stood shoulder to shoulder to squash the enemy of good. The enemy of justice. The enemy of opportunity. The enemy of freedom.
My fellow Americans, now is the time to stand up and be counted. The time is NOW to throw out this regime and to right the wrongs of their demented plans.
Q: You keep telling us that you can decrease the rate of unemployment but you have refused to say just how you plan to accomplish this feat. Could you explain?
A: The details are very simple. The current regime has done everything in it’s power to strip this county of opportunities to get a job or to create a business. In the minds of these people, the only way to get votes and stay in power is to remove the ability for persons to be independent. To remove the freedom that is the natural by product of self suffiency. To coerce and force the down trodden to vote for evil so as to be fed. Blackmail them to vote for self imprisonment so as to be roofed.
In the America that I know, a person has the right and opportunity to push free enterprise so as to provide jobs and opportunities. In the America I know, a person has the ethical responsibility to support a family and provide for their futures, they have a moral responsibility to help their neighbors and friends who need support until they can progress into a position of self reliance. In the America I know, there is no obligation whatsoever to work so as to support people who won’t work. There is no obligation to work to support persons who simply stroll into the country, never intending to become an American, their only intent is to take the money of those who work to support their spouses and children, and themselves.
Redistribution of wealth is simply another way spell the word THEFT.
If you want a booming economy, all that has to be done is put a stop to the massive theft of the working man that this unknown person who has stolen the oval office has orchestrated.
It’s very simple. Undo the things that undo jobs. Undo the Obama Regime and you will have jobs. Like any solution it all boils down to cause and effect.
The cause is having a communist anti American in the white house and the effect is a lack of prosperity, lack of security, and the lack of a future.
We must unite to cleanse the plague that is Obama. This is your moment in history to decide if your children and grandchildren will live in a world of darkness and slavery to a few masters or live in a world of freedom and opportunity that is the American Way. Help me shine the burning light of self reliance and self respect into the dark corridors of the white house so as the cock roaches will scurry away back to the sewers from whence the came.
Together we will stand, together, right is might, together we will drink the cup of victory filled to the brim with the sweet elixir that is freedom and opportunity.
Of course, the problem is the media bias and the format etc....
Has anyone else noticed that Romney actually looks younger and healthier than Obama? I had not really paid attention but my mother said something and so I started to pay attention— I think she’s right.
How to beat Obozo in a debate? Simple. Disconnect his teleprompter.
In his closing remarks, Reagan asked the viewers a simple yet devastating question that would resonate with voters in 1980 and beyond: "Are you better off now than you were four years ago? Is it easier for you to go and buy things in the stores than it was four years ago? Is there more or less unemployment in the country than there was four years ago? Is America as respected throughout the world as it was? Do you feel that our security is as safe, that we're as strong as we were four years ago? And if you answer all of those questions 'yes', why then, I think your choice is very obvious as to whom you will vote for. If you don't agree, if you don't think that this course that we've been on for the last four years is what you would like to see us follow for the next four, then I could suggest another choice that you have."
