First, speaking as the son of a Marine Corps officer and the brother of a Navy officer, I think Obamas horses and bayonets wisecrack wasnt his biggest miscalculation. All that did was lose him the military vote in the Norfolk area and thus, most likely, the state of Virginia. Rather, it was the weird way he kept conflating the war-fighting purpose of the military with taking care of the veterans after they come home. Military personnel deeply resent the implication, so earnestly peddled by the bed-wetting civilians at the New York Times, among others, that returning vets are just a PTSD psycho hair-trigger away from going postal. Theyre soldiers, Mr. President, not crybabies.
Second, I think the moment that won the debate, and perhaps the election, for Romney came near the end, when Romney was speaking and Obama fixed him with the Punahou Death Stare . . . and Romney just kept right on going, making his points directly to Obama, entirely unflustered by the presidents juvenile tactics. That spoke volumes about the character of the two men and no one who was watching could have missed it.

The Sling Blade Stare
Romney is no Ronald Reagan, but Obama isn’t fit to shine Romney’s shoes.
I respectfully disagree. Obama is fit to shine Romney's shoes.
“the Punahou Death Stare”
That’s what I keep coming back to. Policy aside, one has to question whether both Obama and Biden ‘the human hyena’, are deranged.
Way too funny. Clintoon famously quipped after O'Bungsuck's 2008 Styrofoam Pillars speech in Denver that, "Isn't it funny, four years ago he'd have been carrying our bags and shining our shoes."
Just goes to show, you can take the hick out of the "hollow," but a good shoeshine boy is getting pretty hard to find...
No way obama could shine shoes well enough to please the new President of the United States.
Exactly what could he do? I don’t know. One thing’s for sure, when he loses and gives his speech, he’ll be grinding his teeth like Gore. So I guess in terms of potential, obama has a great future ahead, eating Xanax like candy.
This from a clown who has made more appearancces on letterman than at Walter Reed.
-—— Obama is fit to shine Romney’s shoes-—
That might actually be a good job for post president Obama. He could man the shoe shine stand in the hallway at the Crystal City Metro stop
That stare was probably much less obvious to Romney than to the TV viewer. Obama, no doubt, had been instructed by his handlers not to look down as he did in the Denver debate. They told him to look right at Romney, which he did, and instead of appearing detached, he looked weird and creepy.
Where he really failed was trying to goad Romney into a mud fight, and Romney wouldn't take the bait.
This video includes ‘the bow’ - ‘more free after the election’ - Rev Wright - trashing Netanyahu, etc... Watch and pass it along. Thanks.
Obviously, when Obama stated that the ‘apology tour’ wasn’t true it points out that Obama doesn’t even remember what his handlers had him read off of his teleprompter.
This guy is unfit to hold the office in every way possible.
