Skip to comments.Robert Reich: OBAMA IS BACK !!
Posted on 10/17/2012 8:35:46 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
Last night our president was articulate and forceful in sharp contrast to his performance in the first presidential debate. He stated his beliefs. He defended his record. He told America where he wanted to take the nation in his second term.
And he explained where Romney wanted to take us.
For example: Romney says hes got a five-point plan. Governor Romney doesnt have a five-point plan; he has a one-point plan. And that plan is to make sure that folks at the top play by a different set of rules. Thats been his philosophy in the private sector; thats been his philosophy as governor; thats been his philosophy as a presidential candidate. You can make a lot of money and pay lower tax rates than somebody who makes a lot less. You can ship jobs overseas and get tax breaks for it. You can invest in a company, bankrupt it, lay off the workers, strip away their pensions, and you still make money.
Governor Romney was on 60 Minutes just two weeks ago, and he was asked, is it fair for somebody like you, making $20 million a year, to pay a lower tax rate than a nurse or a bus driver, somebody making $50,000 a year? And he said, yes, I think thats fair. Not only that, he said, I think thats what grows the economy. Well, I fundamentally disagree with that.
Obama told voters what Romneys plan was for women (take away their freedom of choice), and for Hispanics (allow police to stop them and demand proof of citizenship, as in the Arizona law thats his [Romneys] policy, and its bad policy.)
He took responsibility for the security lapse in Libya, but made sure Americans understood the danger

Keep telling yourself that ahole.
Who is the hobbit of the Rat party

The Lollipop Guild weighs in.
In the famous words of the late great Peter Huffman...............Shut up Little Man!!
“Strip away their pensions”. Ah yes, Delphi....
>> And he explained where Romney wanted to take us. bla bla bla rich guy bla bla 1% bla bla
Hey Robert — that’s not “explaining” — that’s just cheap unsupported rhetoric.
Same old failed same old from the Kenyan Marxist.
Has any lib media outlet dared to post the headline “The Comeback Kid” yet?
agressive, petulant, and annoying may overcome the opponent and “win” the debate- but still not get him any more votes
When did the dwarf start writing for the Onion?
I regret to inform you, but he's not dead yet.
Obama is ‘back’ all right .... sitting in the back of the bus as opposed to standing on the street corner, having missed the bus totally in the first debate.
I must have been watching a different debate because I saw a challenger who was sharp and concise with his answers and I saw a champion who was still slow to react and whose sole response to many rebuttals was “Romney’s answer is completely untrue.”
By about the middle of the debate, I said to myself, “Obama is toast.” I think Romney’s slam on Obama not passing an immigration bill when Democrats could have passed ANYTHING was a strong bodyblow!
BO did NOT defend his record. He can’t defend the decrease in median family income, high food and gas prices, and 23,000,000 million unemployed. He attacked Romney about the income he has earned.
Obama’s is not back from anywhere. He’s still stuck on his class warfare argument. Hey Reich..... why don’t you write a check to the IRS for 75% of your income if it makes you feel better. I swear, if obama gets re-elected I hope every one of these SOB’s lose every penny they own along with their multi million dollar mansions. Forclose on rich liberals — now that would be fun to watch.
I am looking at Yahoo’s story by Greenfield how Obama won. The comment section is 3 against 1 pro-Romney. People see what Obama is and they know they have been had. It’s only the most dedicated Liberals or the gimmie idiots left.
Where’s the BARF alert. TBH who cares what he thinks.
Thanks for the humor, I guess.
Obama never left. He is the same communist who likes to play golf.
Don’t you think Obama looks tired?
America will be communist for the next 40 years!
Really, I wish I had a pet dwarf syncophant too.
The only thing Rob Reich lacks is a hat with bells
I want to start singing that Randy Newman song...what was it, again?
C’mon folks. It doesn’t matter what Obama did in the debate.
What matters is what the MSM says Obama did in the debate.
GOD forbid, but if by chance it did. Those same people will come back and DEMAND to know WHY they were not warned. Guaranteed that will be their response.
Isn’t reich one of those minimum wage should be $20 an hour people. (probably $40 an hour)
The comments following Reich’s column don’t exactly reflect the same position he has taken. Most are anti-Obama,,some anti-Reich. I guess it’s Reich’s turn to participate in the media-must-shill-and-cover-for-Obama exercise.
“He defended his record.”
He made stuff up. His record is indefensible.
Obama said “When I WAS President” during the debate last night. Someone better tell him he’s on a Come Back?
... and he still lost more than he gained by the morning light.
Funny that this mental midget thought this remark was a highlight of the evening - I thought it was intellectually lazy and punkish.
the liberals seem to be in some weird parallel universe. They are merely comparing obama’s first debate to his second debate and calling it a “Win.”
He just didn’t suck quite as bad in the 2nd go-round and Romney won the 2nd debate. It isn’t complicated.
I didn’t know that that little sock-puppet was still alive.
OK so which obummer answers the phone at 3 AM?
The part I liked best about last night was when Romney talked DOWN to Hussein:
“You’ll get your chance. That was a statement, not a question.”
FU Hussein, you LOSER!
He dipped into the coke before the debate. (not the cola)
4 biggest liars in the last 20 years.
4) Robert Reich
3) Paul Begala
2) Bill Clinton
1) Barack Obama
Robert is such a sad, little, Democrat who has been wrong soooo often.
“He told America where he wanted to take the nation in his second term.”
Yeah the same place he told us he wanted to go in his first term but never got there......
Another stinker left-over of the rancid Clintoon legacy trying to get back in the limelight.
Get a life, you desperate little man....preferably one that does not involve anyone but your dog.
If that guy on Big World / Little People also Votes for Obama we'll know for sure.
No other explanation.
He ain't in now way tard.
