Itís Over
Powerline ^ | OCTOBER 3, 2012 | JOHN HINDERAKER

Posted on 10/03/2012 9:49:23 PM PDT by RobinMasters

I’ve been watching presidential debates for quite a few years, but I have never seen one like this. It wasn’t a TKO, it was a knockout. Mitt Romney was in control from the beginning. He was the alpha male, while Barack Obama was weak, hesitant, stuttering, often apologetic. The visuals were great for Romney and awful for Obama. Obama looked small, tired, defeated after four years of failure, out of ammo. One small point among many: Obama doesn’t even know how to stand at a podium, as he continually lifted up one leg. He would be below average as a high school debater.

There were 1,800 people on Power Line Live tonight, and the verdict was unanimous: it was a great night for the forces of good. Tweets through the evening tracked how the debate went. At one point, as it became obvious that Romney was dominating, my 16 year old daughter tweeted: “So uh is now a good time to mention that I’ve met Mitt Romney?” Iowahawk kept up a steady stream, including gems like: “‘What the hell is this? I was specifically told I’d be debating John Kerry.’–Inside Obama’s head.” And: “Breaking: Choom Gang revokes Obama’s membership.”

It was what happens when am “affirmative action” college boy tries to match wits and intelligence with a guy who got his college degrees on merit - not the color of his skin.
Nothing more- nothing less. However, you will never, ever hear that in the lame-stream, liberal-left, progressive-communist, US media.

Yep! He might have done better going into his Ebonics mode like in that 2007 video.

Just further verification that Obama is a vessel, a figurehead, a true “Manchurian Candidate”.

"Obama doesn’t even know how to stand at a podium"

Just a peeve, the podium is the raised platform upon which the debaters stood. They were each standing AT a lecturn.

The pitiful figure that we saw tonight was the real Obama, the loser behind the curtain who is finally revealed as an utter hoax.

That's actually too kind. Obama is far worse than that.

He would be below average as a high school debater.

But with the affirmative action curve, he'd get an A+...

Your graphic in #1....wow!

Bill O'Reilly's body language expert, Tonya Reiman, ought to have a field day analyzing O'Bumbum's face AND body language during the debate.

He was like a fish out of water, a ship without a rudder, a kite without a tail........

A Big Fail!

I’m sure Bambi has slunk back to his bed in the White Hut, hugging his teddy bear, and sucking his thumb.

The most encouraging thing Mr. Hinderaker said was that he saw the peanut gallery on MSNBC impuning Obumma's intelligence.

If anything punctures Obama's phony "smartest man in the world" image, he's in trouble. If the media in general starts to dump on him for being the dolt he so obviously is, it really is over for him.

If late-night comedians start in on him, it's over for him.

Still, the depths to which the Obama people can go are incalculable. They can start a war. They can start two or three wars at once. They can make common cause with foreign leaders to touch off a huge international incident. They can release tax records, health records. They have so much power, I won't call it "over" 'till it really is over.

I sure hope John Hinderaker is right though.

Obama’s true colors are those of a commie demagogue like all those Soviet and East European gensecs, plus Fidel before him. Just like them he can’t shut up, goes on and on, and could go on for hours if allowed, like his hero Castro, and every single one of those I mentioned. That is their and his MO! (Check the historical records if you don’t believe, but some of those speeches would go on for 7 hours and longer.)

He’s well practiced at that!

Hi...Robin, and ALL on This Thread:

The article You Posted Mentioned: "Obama doesn’t even know how to stand at a podium, as he continually lifted up one leg."

Here's My Opinion:

Maybe Barack HUSSEIN Obama - The LIAR - In - Chief...

HAD TO GO....PEE-PEE!

Simcha7

PS: Mitt Romney was Fantastic Tonight!

HE TOLD THE TRUTH, THE WHOLE TRUTH AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH!

BECAUSE: The Living GOD of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob HELPED HIM!

AMEN & AMEN!
