This is a very revealing, insightful observation!
1.) This observation goes a long way towards explaining the fact of Obama’s arrogance: Once Obama states his argument, everybody must agree that all future DISCUSSION is just mindless bickering.
2.) In the last debate, whenever Romney made a BETTER “well made argument” than the argument that Obama was thinking of, Obama just nodded his head in defeat, and looked at the floor anxious to go stand in the corner.
3.) As a weak and incompetent financial steward, all CHALLENGES to his memorized statements render Obama unable to comprehend that he has to think on his feet, by himself against an adversary. As a result Obama is able only to repeat his memorized statement. For example, just count the number of times that Obama repeated the “5 Trillion Dollars” after Romney told him that wasn’t in his plan.
I have put 3 key words in caps from the above 3 thoughts.
Consider now, that we are hiring a CEO to run the World’s most powerful company, in this case the US Federal Government.
IMHO, a good CEO would want to hold frequent Board Meetings to encourage DISCUSSION, generate BETTER arguments, and CHALLENGE every idea from every angle.
How then, you LURKERS, can you vote for Obama who is lacking in all 3 of these CEO characteristics?
