Prez ‘crushed’ by Romney

Prez ‘crushed’ by Romney

Howie Carr

If last night’s debate was a prizefight, it would have been stopped at 9:25 p.m.

I had a feeling Obama might have a problem when I heard he was using John Kerry as his Mitt Romney stand-in. If that was the best Liveshot could do getting Barack ready for Mitt, he should be fired this morning even before Bobby Valentine gets his walking papers.

Did you notice how Obama kept looking away from Romney? It took a while to figure out who he was looking for, but then I realized — it was TOTUS, his missing TelePrompTer of the United States.

No one should ever use the words “cerebral” and “Barack” in the same sentence ever again. He bragged about cutting taxes $3,600 for middle-class families — “maybe they can buy a new car.”

And they said George H.W. Bush was out of touch!

It wasn’t just that Romney was smart. It was that Barack was revealed as a clueless dolt...

If you are going to say that taxes have gone down on small business...I am going to call you a f*n liar.

I think at one point during the debate Barack Hussein Obama did claim 18 tax cuts for small business during his tenure.

But whatever number they’re touting, it’s bogus.

In fact, if you look at Obama’s list, you quickly realize that all but four have either expired or will soon expire, aren’t cuts at all, or are double-counted. And the rest are pretty much worthless.

For example, Obama still counts tax cuts that have already expired. The tax credit for hiring unemployed workers, enacted as part of the so-called HIRE act in 2010, is gone. So too is the break for estimated tax payments and the expanded deduction of health care expenses for the self-employed.

Moral of that story: all “rich” guys are not equally endowed with smarts.

Kerry is not rich. He never made an honest dime in his life. He has to ask Mommy for money whenever he wants a new toy.

The Democrat party is the party of lies, and what became clear tonight is that Ubama is simply a terrible liar. Is it any wonder the rats still fawn over that guy who got impeached and disbarred for lying in court, had an affair with an intern young enough to be his daughter, and jerked off in the Oval Office sink? Clinton was a “very good liar”*.

(* Bob Kerrey, D-Nebraska)

Meanwhile, Bill and Hillary are making a lot of phone calls as they gear up for ‘16...

Of course the taxes have gone down!

Due to Obama's beneficent oversight, there are fewer small businesses due to them closing down or going bankrupt.

Thanks, smooth - great column.

Does this sound like a guy who has ever done anything real? He’s lucky the subject of Libya didn’t come up. He probably still thinks the porn video caused all the commotion.

“Consider the teacher he met in Nevada. She had 42 students and the textbooks were 10 years old. This was the best Barack Obama could come up with?”

That story is one of those typical stupid obama campaign trail stories that either are a complete lie or probably terrible exagerated. They left one part of the story out. Obama said that she said, “that some of the kids were sitting on the floor.” I badly wanted Romney to say, “Is that right, who is this lady, which school, I would like to meet her myself.”

I find it hard to beleive there are schools in this country where there are children sitting on the floor, except maybe during story time. Luckily Romney decided not to call obama out on this stupid story, and I am quite certain the media doesn’t believe it either. However, obama has done this and gotten away with it a hundred times.

The look Obama had on his face was that of someone who just realized that all of those close to him had been ‘yes’ing him to death all of his life and he wasn't nearly as bright as they had led him to believe. And now that he was up against someone much more intelligent than he, Obama was screwed and could only pray for the night to end as soon as possible...and since he doesn't believe in any god except himself, he was REEAAAALLLLLLY screwed!!!

I don't even buy that she has 42 students. Most classes, unless specialty classes, are around 20 to 25 due to the goonion contracts.

“It was that Barack was revealed as a clueless dolt.”

Even then he was able to get in his talking points for the owners of the Democratic Party (the teachers’ unions) - he is talking about hiring so many more “math & science” teachers while so many places are laying off teachers - and he didn’t say what we could do with the public school “teachers” currently being paid to pretend teaching math & science.

Romney did a good job, and for the first time since his election Obama was held accountable for his record (without his Speak & Spell to help him).

“Jim Lerher was suppose to be asking questions with skewed liberal promises, that’s the mainstream media’s oath.”

None of them want to e publicly lampooned on the ‘net (or late-night TV) for their Obama kneepads anymore, and I’m sure many of them see the writing on the wall for Obama and no reason to throw away the tiny bit of self-respect they have left for him.

“For once I would say Obama met and exceeded expectations for a poor performance.”

Obama’s performance last night was a scathing indictment of affirmative action, and the Dem media’s response to/spinning of it was a perfect case of the soft bigotry of lowered expectations.

He probably had an earpiece; that still only works as long as you can focus on both your coach AND the person in front of you, and even the coach would have a hard time refuting your opponent “live”.

People got a great view of the real Obama (without his Speak & Spell); I doubt he’s still viewed as a great orator. I don’t know what the Obama camp expected; he has nothing but a disastrous record to run on, and is an easy target on so many fronts. He did get in his lip service to his owners, though: thousands and thousands of new teachers needed...

The last study I read reported that, for every $1.00 of gasoline, “big oil” makes app. .08 cents profit. A large percentage goes to paying for R&D, production, delivery, marketing, etc. (paid by the consumer, of course). Meanwhile, .30-.40 cents of every dollar spent on gasoline goes to state and federal taxes. This breakdown, of course, depends upon the state and the region.

And these leftists love to complain about the ‘gazillions’ of dollars of profit that ‘big oil’ is making, how they ‘gouge’ the people at the pumps.

When I went to public school BEFORE the teachers were unionized, a standard class was 40 students and it was a red letter day if we got a textbook that only listed 3 previous owners.

Romney really “brought it” on many occasions. My favorite was when he reminded Mr. Liberal Kenyan do-gooder that instead of spending money on teachers, he chose to funnel it to his favorite “green” money laundrying system, Solyndra.

Oh, my, that was a delectable morsel indeed.

(Still wish Newt could have been up there, though ...;)

Newt would have pulverized him to fine ground matter.

He’s such an easy target, though — my 11 year old could have debated him and beat him easily.

Spot on.

But don’t forget the effect of inflation. We’ve had QE1, QE2, and QE3, each of which degrades the value of the dollar. But all the while the value of petroleum stays pretty much the same. Net result - it takes more dollars to buy the same amount of oil.

OPEC ain’t stupid - they’re not going to sell a barrel of oil for the same amount of dollars that they did 4 years ago, when those dollars are worth much less than they were 4 years ago.
