Robert Reich: OBAMA IS BACK !!
Business Insider ^ | 10/17/2012 | Robert Reichhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Posted on 10/17/2012 8:35:46 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

He’s back.

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 he’s got a five-point plan. Governor Romney doesn’t 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. That’s been his philosophy in the private sector; that’s been his philosophy as governor; that’s 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.”

And:

“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 that’s fair. Not only that, he said, I think that’s what grows the economy. Well, I fundamentally disagree with that.”

Obama told voters what Romney’s 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 “that’s his [Romney’s] policy, and it’s bad policy.”)

He took responsibility for the security lapse in Libya, but made sure Americans understood the danger

Hey Robert — that’s not “explaining” — that’s just cheap unsupported rhetoric.

Same old failed same old from the Kenyan Marxist.

Try again?

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.

Next debate, if I were Romney, I would HAMMER on the first two years of Obama, Pelosi, Reid.

"For two years, you could have raised taxes on the wealthy to whatever rate you wanted to."

"For two years, you could have placed a tax on Foundations, which is a secure haven used by many politicians on the right and the left."

"For two years, you could have....."

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 made stuff up. His record is indefensible.

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.

Hey O-Hole,

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!
