If Mitt can take on Newt and win, Mitt should spank Obama.

Prayed for Mitt asking God to give him a clam an authority. Continued prayers for our future and eyes to be opened wide by, tonight’s debate.

I take great comfort that the auditorium is named after the great *Ronaldus Magness*. It’s a good sign. :)

Obama wins and will be declared the greatest debater ever according to the MSM. Most reporters have probably already written it that way as we speak.

I could carry the horror-film analogy further. Obama reminds me a bit of that gaunt, black zombie wandering around the cane fields from “I Walked with a Zombie,” and Romney evokes some kind of aloof European nobleman living in a castle and hiding dark secrets in his dungeon, from some sort of early-60s Italian horror film.

Believe me, this whole 2012 election season has been one prolonged horror film as far as I’m concerned. Next year I’m expected 2013 to be more akin to the Irwin Allen disaster-film genre, regardless of the outcome.

Don’t worry, he has on his magic undies :-)

Actually I really do wish him well tonight.
It’s a certainty Obama has already seen the questions and rehearsed his answers.

I know exactly what Romney is thinking...

“This is what I’ve been preparing for my entire life. I’ll make you proud, dad”

Obama is thinking...

“I’m so cool. I should have a tattoo, on my chest, but... of my face! Oh, yeah!”
