Translated: Mitt, you're an idiot for counting ships. You apparently don't realize that technology doesnât require ships anymore (even though the Navy says they require 313, apparently Obama knows better).
This impending reality clearly angered Obama. His remarks suggested, "I am in charge here and I won't allow sequestration to happen." It's as though he thinks he gets to decide this question, which he doesn't. Sequestration will happen unless a miracle occurs and Congress passes a budget which, by the way, it hasn't been able to during the entire Obama presidency.

(what a maroon...)
This Obama is a socialist dictator who will destroy what’s left of the U.S. and our freedom.
We owe it to our founding fathers , to the people who will live in the future to save freedom now in this most crucial time. Will those that come after us say that we did everything we could to keep them free? We should go to Romney’s site and volunteer to call voters in Ohio to get them to the polls.
I think you nailed the key points about BO. He just cannot help himself. On equal footing in a debate, the bully resorts to his native self. I think Romney’s reluctance to be led into debating traps which I guess BO and his crack team of advisors developed probably pushed his buttons and he finally began to unravel. I think Romney sensed it too and was smart enough to not try to push him over the edge as that could have backfired. Take the TKO, don’t go for the knock out...it is a win.
If Romney handled Obama like this imagine how he would handle some other countries leaders, what I am saying is Romney will earn respect in the eyes of other nations leaders.
The Japanese will say something to the effect that Romney “doesn’t lose face” or has bushido or warriors spirit.
Romney was good, and I don’t care what the numbers say, Romney would be my next POTUS.
One more thing.
Romney, an American, will bow before NO ONE.
Just as a matter of interest; Romney was right, Russia is still the biggest international threat to the United States.
Whether the Obunghole has noticed it or not, Putin has restarted the cold war in a high flying manner.
The 90s called. They want their joke back.
” ... Putin has restarted the cold war in a high flying manner.”
True. But since Obama is a communist, he supports Putin.
What I noticed about Romney was his calm confidence.
What I noticed about Obama was his near frantic desperation.
Romney wins, it’s not even close.
Too bad Romney didn’t say something about Obama getting the endorsement of Putin, Chavez, and Castro... Hasn’t Ahmadinejad endorsed Obama as well?
Those things ought to tell everybody all they need to know about Obama’s foreign policy.
As I posted on another thread Romney needs to point out that our enemies have the same technology we have. And obama didn’t deny he wants to cut the navy back to the 1915.
He didn’t mention the endorsements, but it did something just as instructive....
The Secretary of the Navy just resigned, that ought to tell you something. He said that they won’t give the Navy the ships that they need.
“What a marroon” is from Bugs Bunny. It works wherever the reference works, as it is classic.. and packs all of the appropriate imagery
Off subject, yes. trivial, I think not.
I was commenting on Obama’s tired use of “the 80s called... they want their foreign policy back.”
“What a maroon” is indisputably a classic.
If you read the article on FR that I read a while ago, it was from 1988. Don’t ask me why it was posted as if it happened today.
I agree on Romney’s Calm Confidence as you say
Romney was too much of a gentleman at times, but maybe that was his campaign strategy for this third debate.
Obama threw out soo much dishonest chaff that needed correction that Romney didnt have time to correct all of it. He corrected some of it and continued to take the high road.
At times, I felt he should have essentially thrown up his arms in frustration and said:
Why do you keep repeating all these snarky lies when time and time again, I’ve corrected you on them?
In the end, I think a lot boils down to shallow things like facial expressions, appearance/style. Romney clearly had that over Barky Obunga.
My neighbor lady (85 y/o conservative) called me right after and said Romney looked FATHERLY. Hadnt thought of it that way, but thats an appeal he probably has for a lot of people. Hes a true father in real life and he exudes that quality.
Obama exudes the characteristics of a petulant punk.
His beady eyes made him appear as if he was always trying to squirm out of another one of his lies.
But the “FATHERLY” comparison sums up an essence about Romney that Obama just doesnt have.
Bork Obunga is a professional complainer and thats it...
Since America has become a nation of children anyway, it follows that they may fall for more of a FATHER figure than Obama. That’s why Obunga will lose.
Krauthammer HAMMERS Bork Obunga!
Comrade obama’s military leadership is of kind that loses wars.
Obemba had that smug - ‘I’m-better-than-you’ look on his face for the entire debate. I would like to...well, never mind.
“Putin has restarted the cold war in a high flying manner.”
The cold war never ended. The MSM would have everyone believe that. Whoever believed the MSM is delusional.
Watching Obama’s facial expressions on a split screen you could see the seething hatred Obama has for Romney and especially to being questioned about anything. He did not look Presidential. I think it was telling that some observers said that to someone seeing this debate totally unaware of who the players were would perceive Romney to be President and Obama to be the inexperienced challenger.
Obama was channeling George Costanza...
Being presidential? And in sharp contrast to obama.
He tried a "beat-down" two or three times, got snarky as the title says. But if what the women reporters have been telling us is true, Barky's small-weenie reflex may have betrayed him by annoying or offending the women voters that the Electoral College sharpshooters are lusting after -- the legendary 30,000 moderate/low-info (God, I hate "low-info" neologism) women voters we've been hearing about. They generally get turned off when the boys start waving their pillocks at one another.
SecNav just went over the side? Over policy? Was this on Page One anywhere? This ought to be huge.
Starts 'em, too. By invitation.
Romneys response was to quote Obama saying, We dictate to other nations, and Romney said, We do not dictate to other nations. We liberate them. And Obama was utterly speechless. I thought Romney had the day. He looked presidential. The president did not.
He is, at the end of the day, our Elegabalus, a roue' and creature of the demimonde.
The Assistant SecNav left in July for health reasons, she said.
“That is because the “_Resident” gets a promotion every time someone lavishes “P” on him ...”
Obama gets a promotion with every passing day that he doesn’t smoke crack, father a child out of wedlock, or mug an elderly white person. The lib media is so happy to have a (half) black man that doesn’t engage in these behaviors...”clean, articulate, without a trace of a negro accent”.
That’s quite a paragraph of sharp insight, especially at the early hour.
I’m a high-information voter, but the exhausted middle-aged housewife under the policy-wonk chick is saying, “Get these creeps (Zero and Biden) out of my country before I pour a pot of boiling water over Mr. Wiggles and don’t regret it!!!”
And you’ll forgive me. I was having a lit teacher moment.
Obama is a professional complainer because that’s what he is trained for....he’s a DEMOCRAT COMMUNITY ORGANIZER.....they ONLY ROUSE THE RABBLE in INNER CITIES and COMPLAIN that that “WHITEY” isn’t being fair to them, even though “WHITEY” PAYS for them to live in the places they do, pays the taxes that gives them FOOD STAMPS and WELFARE PAYMENT!!
President Purple Lips sure has a CLENCHED JAW there!! Sure sign of STRESS and ANGER!
That fits well and is a concise and accurate way of describing Romney's demeanor last night. I can see where it will be quite helpful in swaying the remaining undecideds.
By comparison, Zippo came across as insignificant and out of place. It was as if he had by accident wandered into a room full of adults and didn't know how to act.
I think you’re right Mouton... good calls.
HA! I can never be mad at anyone who cites the origins of “What a maroon.”
We would also have accepted “What a tah-rah-rah-GOON-dee-ay.”
(I think Bugs only used that one once.)
Thanks for the kind words, but I was just channeling something Katty Kay of the BBC said after either the second debate or the VP debate (and someone else said it, too), when Charlie Rose had her on PBS's special debate coverage, about women not liking masculine tilting-contests.
Biden's and Obama's behavior, especially since it was obviously a put-up job, certainly rates its own article in Psychology Today, and maybe a companion article in Current Events along the lines of "Political Uses of Dysphoria Displays and Atavistic Primate Behavior". OR, as Chrissie Tingles put it at the time, "Ooogh oogh wugga Mugga urk urk urk!!"
Last line got an appreciative LOL!
I don’t know what the 30,000 women voters with barely enough brain function to maintain heartbeat and respiration will do, but I voted this morning for the successful businessman and the cute Midwestern math-geek. Not looking for a husband, or a father, or a Messiah - I have all those, thanks - just a leadership team that’s not stark blithering insane.
