Spot on.. If Romney would have taken the bait, Oblamebush had a strawman ready to explain it away before 60 million people, FREE OF CHARGE.. When Romney outsmarted him, by not bringing it to the fore, he was stymied and never had a chance to recover, without making it an issue in his mind only.. BRILLIANT!
For many reasons, which I have written on other threads and won’t repeat here, Romney’s refusal to engage HIS time on Benghazi during the debate, was brilliant. It forced the Old Media to ask why why why, and advanced the Libya story themselves, without Romney getting dragged into the mud himself. The Dinosaur Media are left without any sound byte that they would STILL be twisting to use against him.
Moreover, and what I want to point out here, is that -bama was “loaded for bear” on that topic with something to lambast Romney. What it was, I don’t know and it doesn’t matter. What matters is that -bama and advisers were expecting and intending a slam dunk on that subject to lead off the debate, and they didn’t even get a chance. That really angered Obama, and threw him off his game the rest of the night, groping for a way to get that slam dunk.
I invite everyone to go watch it again. -bama was mad all debate and continually tried to draw Mitt into a battle that never came.
The conservative media has to advance this story themselves now, without Romney’s help. It is the best way.
