Will Obama Pull an October Surprise?
RushLimbaugh.com ^ | 10/19/12 | Rush Limbaugh

Posted on 10/19/2012 12:34:21 PM PDT by Evil Slayer

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Doug in Sunbury, Pennsylvania. Hello, sir.

CALLER: Hello, Rush. This is truly an honor.

RUSH: I appreciate that, sir.

CALLER: I just want to throw this out. I expect Obama to try to pull something, and I want to know: Is he gonna try to pull something like foreign policy-wise before the debate on Monday, like a possible attack on Iran?

RUSH: People have been thinking he would do something like that sometime this month. That would appear very suspicious, timing-wise. With this guy, anything's possible, but the way I'm looking at it honestly here, Doug, I don't think he's gonna have to. In his mind, just get together with Bob Schieffer before the debate like he did Candy Crowley.

Say, "Look, when this comes up, you just go there, and we'll handle it that way." Well, folks... (interruption) No, I'm not alleging anything. I watched that debate again, and Romney goes on and says, "Mr. President, we have to get this on the record: You called it a terrorist attack the day after?" and Obama said (impression), "Proceed, Governor Romney. Just proceed." So Romney said, "Okay, we have it on record. The president of the United States said blah, blah, blah."

And then Obama points and says to Candy Crowley, "Get the transcript," and she just happens to have it!

And then she just happens to read from it. And then she just happens to say, "Mr. Romney, you're wrong. He did call it a terrorist attack." Now, I am not alleging anything, but I just want to ask you: If during any debate that you have done seen, if any of the combatants had said to the moderator, "Get the transcript," and the transcript specifically asked for was produced and read from by the moderator, what do you think reaction would be?

Now, people call here all the time. It doesn't happen much anymore, but they will challenge and I've always said, "Go get the tape. Look at the transcript." It's a generic thing people say. And this looked generic, but he did point, and he looked at Crowley and he said, "Get the transcript. Get the transcript." And she had it. Pascal: "It's much easier to believe that something that has happened can happen again."

So,a little powwow with Bob Schieffer?

You never know.

OF COURSE BHusseinO will try to pull an October Surprise...
or the powerful people behind his Teleprompter will

all their Big Lie technique efforts have been failing...

they’ve nothing left to do but try an October surprise

Romney needs to expect it
and
we need to be ready to analyze it accurately and respond to it FAST
since, by design, there won’t be much time allowed us or anybody in USA
to figure it out

Romney and his surrogates should be out there every single day talking about the coming BO October surprise.

They need to joke about it, ask people what do they expect it to be. Keep the idea in the news that it is coming. Discredit it ahead of time. So when it comes, people will disregard it.

I know... he’ll stage a false riot in the ME where some of our people will be taken hostage - then he’ll negotiate their release.

I sure hope no SEALS are unexpectedly there to mess up the plan.

Too late in October for there to be an October surprise. I have no doubt, however, that there will be a trumped up “Bush DUI” or Anita Hill type story coming soon.

I am soooooo happy to see Rush finally pick up on this. Been sending him emails about it every day since the debate ended. Lots of FReepers posts were sent to him about this very thing. Thanks Rush for finally detailing it like we have already been doing it on Free Republic.

One of my lib friends on Facebook trotted out a story from The Examiner, based on a Boston Globe story, about a head-on collision in which Romney was involved when he was a missionary in France (1968). Supposedly, the priest driving the car that hit Romney’s car was drunk. One of Romney’s passengers died in the wreck. Romney was in a coma, but came out of it with a broken arm, lacerations, and I can’t remember what else. The tone of the Examiner article read something like, “How do we know that Mitt Romney was not driving drunk? No toxicology or sobriety tests were done. The French police dispose of their records after 10 years. The only people who are still alive who could tell us have all been Romney’s friends for over 40 years [so of course, we can’t trust anything THEY say]”.

So I answered her: 1) Romney is a Mormon. Mormons don’t drink alcoholic beverages. 2) One of the passengers in his car was the President of the French Mormon mission. He’s a 21yo kid, looking to make an impression. Do you think he would be drunk in her presence? 3)All we have is conjecture and speculation. Stick a fork in it.

Someone already suggested here on the web that maybe that was what Libya was all about?

an October surprise gone wrong.

could be.

At any event, yes we do need to be ready for an October surprise. He has nothing else left but to try it

The finger pointing indicates to me he knew she had the transcript. Also indicative is his comment to Romney to proceed. Through the last two debates Obama (and the moderator) have constantly interrupted Romney when he is about to score points. He tells Romney to proceed like he knows Romney is walking into a trap. In addition, Obama’s body language through the whole exchange indicates something was up. He can barely contain himself. He gets very animated (almost giddy).

Closer to the Election the more effective. Remember the 20+ GW DWI charge on Fri before the election, cost GW 5 points and created the FL fiasco. Axelrod will engineer something, what and when is key.

I think Zippy has already been trying to, but failing. I’m sure if there were any dirt on Romney, we’d have heard of it by now. The best he can do there is try to rile up his base with resentment of Romney’s wealth.

As far as the ME, it could be something in Libya or Iran. Or maybe Benghazi was the the groundwork for his October surprise blowing up in his face. He still may try something, but the 0bama team is shaken and in disarray. Zippy is so rattled he can’t even deliver his rehearsed lines at the debate properly without blowing the cover of the collusion operation.

His handlers are now between a rock and a hard place. They are stuck with him. He’s screwing up royally, but if they get on his case he’ll get rattled and do even worse. On the other hand, if they try to encourage him by telling him he’s doing well, his swelled head will get even fatter and his arrogance will cause him to make more mistakes. He is a no-win situation imploding before their eyes.

That’s why “winners” lose!

You think that, for example, Romney should never say (i.e. to state the obvious. To us)that the Left has for decades has been scaring the seniors that the Republicans will take away their SoSecurity benefits, and instead continue to defend as before, and as all Pubbie candidates from the dogcatcher on up have been doing, against these accusations as if they were credible, new, and ahistorical?

Because I think that this is a way to defeat the left, to finally discredit their methods and to educate the voting dummies. Otherwise, we keep doing what we’ve always been doing and expecting different results.
