Obama’s Debate Strategy: Unilateral Disarmament?(It's official,they are turning on Obama
Times ^ | October 3,2012 | Joe Kline

Posted on 10/03/2012 9:10:05 PM PDT by Raycpa

Well, I’m with all the other talking heads: Mitt Romney won this debate. Barack Obama lost it. I mean, he got his butt kicked. It was, in fact, one of the most inept performances I’ve ever seen by a sitting President.

.....

But I must admit, once again, to being mystified: Did the President send out his body double tonight? Because if that was the actual Barack Obama out there, I’m not sure he can communicate well enough to be an effective President in a time of trouble, to say nothing of winning a second term.

Mitt drew blood tonight and the Lib sharks won’t be able to resist.

Romney got under his skin.

Obama was fuming and lost his cool.

I noticed a lot of “fact checking” being done on Romney..
that means one thing: the flak chuckers protecting Obama are going to be up all night trying to destroy Romney.

Based on Obama’s performance I can honestly say for the first time I believe the President has actually done something good for the nation.

I don’t think Mitt drew blood.

Obama walked into the debate bleeding.

He was awful.

Boy, I don’t even get the media. Obama has never been a great debater. He does (did?) give good speeches, I’ll give him that.

Maybe if the media had asked this man tough (but fair) questions over the last four years, he’d have been better prepared.

Looks like four years of indefensable failures, being an idiot with no ability to talk without a teleprompter and an opponent who calls him on his lies all caught up with Obama tonight.

The Barack Obama that inhabits the imagination of Liberals has never existed.

Liberals looking at the Debate tonight had the same experience Roddy Rowdy Piper's character had in the Movie “They Live” when he put on the magic Sunglasses.

It was almost too easy for romney, smells like a trap. Now the libs and the MSM know what they’re up against, and can plan accordingly. Next debate, romney will need to throw them a curveball, and keep them guessing. Or I could be wrong and obama really is that much of an idiot. It’s not obama I’m worried about, it’s his handlers’ response that has me wondering what the next move will be.

Well, I hope Romney’s success matters. I missed the show this evening (back to school night), but I remember when Bush 43 did lousy and you could tell he couldn’t wait to be somewhere else. That didn’t cost him the election.

So, do you think Obama choked badly enough to start him on the road to Hawaii?

" Romney got under his skin.

How about in the next debate it's about foreign policy and national security and Romney asks him what happened in Benghazi Libya ? and about the Media's report of a cover up.

That was an absurd article. You’ll see a lot of liberals saying, “Why didn’t he come back with so and so?” The answer, my idiotic liberal friends, is that the arguments, like those outlined in this article, are bullshit. And Romney wasn’t about to put up with no bullshit.

They’re funny - they can’t understand that this is what Obama’s been all along - they deluded themselves into thinking he was a great thinker and orator, but as soon as someone stood toe to toe with him and answered back, it became obvious what he really is - only ten minutes into the debate my wife came to - “I thought he was a better speaker than that”, she said - my daughter and I quickly corrected her with “only when he’s on a teleprompter” - as someone in Frank Lutz’s focus group said - “we had style versus substance - for rour years we’ve had style, now we need some substance”......

Ohh come on now, yes there was Teleprompters.

The Teleprompter was out in the audience, it's just the Teleprompter was told to stay in it's seat and out in the audience and could not participate.

Why do you think Obama kept looking out into the audience tonight ?

Give the guy a break. He has not been able to take a vacation for months because he was too busy campaigning and fund raising.

With what's been going on in the world and our economy he should have forgotten the fund raising and campaigning. If he would have done so his poll numbers would have been higher.

Rush is exactly right. Obama is basically a lazy dude. Comes from years spent on Hawaiian beaches smoking weed and God knows what else. Odumbo much rather have parties in WH, mingle with the Hollywood crowd and play golf on all the elite private courses. Actually I like anyone who is an avid golfer, so I like that one thing about Odumbo.

I thought when Michelle came up on stage she had an “I'm sorry” look on her face as she approached the one. And idiot Obama agrees to debate on his anniversary, probably thinking he'd score points with his “Happy Anniversary” spiel and instead he has tarnished his Anniversary forever as the day he lost the election.

The MSM was in melt down after the debate. As my husband put it, they were wetting their pants. Eliot Spitzer said that, that wasn’t the guy that we wanted to put out there to vote for, that he didn’t even try to counter the $713 billion in medicare cuts.
