Skip to comments.Dear Mitt: Please Donít Morph into a Wuss During the Debates. Regards, Doug Giles
Posted on 09/30/2012 4:03:50 AM PDT by Kaslin
I’ve got to admit … I’m a wee bit concerned about the upcoming presidential debates. My fear is that Mitt, for whatever reason, will take the McCain fetal position before Obama and not come out swinging for the fence.
Mitt ought to do this Wednesday what Babe Ruth did in ‘32 and point to Chicago like the Bambino pointed to centerfield bleachers and then verbally hammer Obama out of the park and back to Illinois.
In addition to Mitt being the aggressor versus a genteel back-pedaler, I’d like to see some former Navy SEALs in the crowd stand up and say, “Uh, Mr. President, did you refer to the deaths of an ambassador and two Navy SEALs as a ‘bump in the road?’” Then without missing a beat they’d launch into the following song sung to the tune of Pink Floyd’s “Another Brick in the Wall.”
We don't need no humiliation
We don’t need no thought control
No dark deception in the press room
Obama leave them SEALs alone
Hey! Obama! Leave them SEALs alone!
All in all we’re just another bump in the road.
All in all we're just another bump in the road.
(Then, of course, that would be followed by a robust chorus sung by children from the “We’re Sick of Obama’s Crapola Choir” from Bite Me, Mississippi.)
Look, regardless of Romney’s debate performance I’m going to vote for him. If I have to I will stand in sweltering South Florida heat wearing a ski parka downwind of a grievously flatulent Rosie O’Donnell stuffing her mouth with bean burritos if that’s what it takes to make certain my vote gets cast against the crappiest president ever.
That said, I pray to God that Mitt truly gets aggressive and doesn’t even crack a smile as he systematically dismembers this Jimmy Carter on steroids. Call out his lies. Start with Benghazi.
Oh, and one more thing, Mr. Romney: During the debates please also fish-slap the incestuous Obama-backing media every chance you get for true Americans.
Check out my latest video, “Raising Boys Feminists Will Hate.”
Morph into a wuss re: taking it to Obama?
What has he been all along?
As per Fox reporting yesterday, the candidates already have the debate questions. What’s up with this? I’ve always been under the impression that candidates came into the debate ‘cold’.
The debates are just a thlk show.The issue is their records,Obama has nothing to run on yet debate anything.
He needs to visualize Obama as Newt
Obama has something to run on: it’s Bush’s fault!
I have a feeling he is going to wuss out, it’s just not in him. He’s a Mormon for crying out loud. Good going Repub-E’s, you let Herman Cain get hammered and nobody spoke up for him and instead you promoted Donny Osmond. Now we can only sit back and weep as a freakin’ foreign exchange student with an expired visa is unconstitutionally elected POTUS again.
Got to love Doug Giles! Someone should start a Doug Giles ping list.
We just have to wait and see and pray. Now don’t we?
When do I get drunk so that I can survive the mental torture of Romney spanking Obama while Obama kicks the crap out of him? Before the debate or after the debate?
What do you bet Obama and Mitt got questions, but the questions to Romney will morph into something other then the prepared questions on Live TV.
I have always voted for our nominee and will always do so.
I’m afraid Mittens doesn’t have it in him; Ryan might if he were allowed freedom of campaigning. I will vote for Mittens and Ryan, but I am not hopeful even if they are elected.
Media story #2 (written Sept 29 2012): "Dateline Oct 3: At last night's debate, Mitt Romney proved himself to be unworthy of the office of president by showing no fire in his belly. Does even want to be elected? His willingness to agree with President Obama on most major issues shocked the moderators and dismayed the audience."
If Mitt does a McCain melt down, the RNC is DEAD! DEAD and all their little band of RINO’s better find another occupation.
“the candidates already have THE debate questions.”
I’m thinking it’s more like, “the candidates already have SOME questions”. They provided the real questions to Hussein, and a completely different list to Romney. There is no way in hell the MSM will permit Mitt to look good, even passable, in the debate. It’ll be a massacre I won’t watch. Mitt always looks like a stiff doofus and Hussein always looks like an arrogant a-hole. Painful.
If Mitt’s going to go down, I sure hope he goes down fighting.
“I will vote for Mittens and Ryan”
I will vote for Ryan in ‘12, just as I voted for Palin in ‘08. Mitt and McCain can go to hell.
That was a great visual!!! LOL! Me too by the way.
We’ll know within the first five minutes whether Mitt is going to man up or stand down. I predict the latter. I think he has already decided just to follow McCain’s lead, mail it in, and become a gracious loser.
Then, once this sorry election is over, those of us who love this country are going to have to either take over the RNC, or seriously start a third party.
The next 37 days will be like a "knife fight in a phone booth"...
...(metaphorically -- of course)
The MSM "cops" standing nearby & watching the tangle really want the other guy to put you away...
They will even help your opponent if you don't warn them to BACK OFF...
You should be ready to fight more then you smile...
You should be ready to strike fiercely...
You should be ready to put him away---
...& win the day (Nov 6)
The entire country is depending on you -- no pressure dude.
Oh joy, another thread for the fatalist, wussy contingent on FR to pre-proclaim defeat because they just know what’s going to happen.
Most annoy trait of conservatives:
Thinking that everyone running for office sucks at it other than themselves.....that never bother running for office.
Oh, HA! I have no interest. The Whigs do not interest me. The GOP is dead -- it just doesn't know it.
Hey, I resemble that remark!
No, Romney needs to visualize himself as Newt, at least for the debates.
The Rommney campaign owes Sarah Palin a big apology. For years they smeared her as stupid and unprepared. But with the campaign Mitt’s running, the stupid label clearly belongs to the entire Romney group.
Mitt pretend you are debating a conservative.....
Having worked in Washington politics for more than 30 years, I can agree with you wholeheartedly. The RNC has long been a haven for self-promoting sycophants. It needs to be cleaned out top to bottom.
They are not real debates, and no GOP candidate should participate until they are.
You nailed it. We know this. We expect this. And it won’t matter in the end anyway. 36 days.
Off it. It’s a sensible suggestion. Mitt can get soft. He needs a hard edge to win.
Wish I had the time. He’s been one of my favorites for a number of years.
Dealing with adolescent, revolutionary psychotics has always been difficult. (When they win absolute power, they invariably become vengeful, murderous thugs.)
All Romney has to do is pretend that obama is a conservative, then he will be fierce.
Otherwise he will be mealy mouse.
He may just out-McCain McCain.
Hey, Doug: as long as you’re dreaming, would you like a pony?
Morph into? Ha ha.
Yeah, that’s about it. Damned if he does, and damned if he doesn’t.
