Skip to comments.Massacre leaves liberals in tears

Slaughter. It was a slaughter.
Mitt Romney put on the most commanding presidential debate performance of the insta-commentary era. One could literally watch, on Facebook and Twitter, hundreds of people on both sides of the political divide react in real time as the debate went on.
Their reactions were identical, though their moods were not: As Romney dominated exchange after exchange with a surprisingly effective combination of pointed personal touches and remarkable factual preparation, conservatives and Republicans grew more and more jubilant while liberals and Democrats grew more and more alarmed.

I am beginning to think Mr Obama’s performance was an act.
I am not sure what the next act will be but he either wants to lose or figures he can’t lose.
I am going with he thinks he can’t lose. time will tell.
I will go with: Obama is a lazy stupid assh*le.
obama was unprepared . not everything the dems do is calculated to the nth degree . obama thought he could walk out there and wipe the floor with R
I don’t think it was an act. I believe it was the performance of an affirmative action baby who has always been petted and placed ahead of his peers based on false assumptions. Last night he was really confronted for the first time. Obama showed that he is not an intellectually superior politician, he is not flexible, he is not quick on his feet, he is not agile, he has a lazy thought process and he does not know how to respond to challenge. We got a chance to see the real Obama for once.
Yeah; it’s called “hubris”.
I’m wondering if it’s a planned replay of Reagan/Mondale wher Reagan performed horribly and then came back strong in the following debate. Onevthing is certain, last nights performance will not recur; the left will make sure of that.
"the presidential race will be turned upside down on Thursday morning after GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama debate each other for the first time"
CHRISTIE NAILED IT! TEAM ROMNEY KNEW EXACTLY WHAT THEY WERE GOING TO DO! All the nervous nellys peed on themselves needlessly.
Obama’s debate prep coach was John Kerry.
Need I say more ?
Try this (especially you lefties reading this) -
Obama IS “lazy, shiftless, arrogant, and narcissistic” and has an IQ MUCH lower than the left gives him credit for, which shows up like a sore thumb when he doesn’t have a speech to read.
Simply wrong! The next debate is foreign policy and Romney will crush Bozo again. Bozo can't blame Bush for his foreign policy blundering, unlike the economy. He is even more naked.
Exactly. Unlike other Presidents Obama has never faced an opposition of any kind, press or party! Last night was the first time.
The debate just proved that Mitt Romney is a RACIST!
Because Obama got OWNED!
That guy in the middle is breakin’ the gaydar.
Next stop Hawaii
“Im wondering if its a planned replay of Reagan/Mondale wher Reagan performed horribly and then came back strong in the following debate. Onevthing is certain, last nights performance will not recur; the left will make sure of that.”
So, Zero performed horribly in the first debate on purpose so he can come back strong in a debate about NATIONAL SECURITY?
I think we saw the Paul Ryan Effect on Mitt. It sounded to me as if Paul Ryan had been coaching Mitt.
I can’t wait till next week when Joe Meets Paul.
“he has a lazy thought process”
Just plain arrogant, spoon-fed his entire life...no-nothing teenager...
This is typical of most leftists - they aren’t used to having to actually address the issues in question. They’re used to yelling “racist” and having their opponent back down.
Arguing with a liberal is like playing chess with a pigeon.
No matter how well you play chess, the pigeon just knocks over the pieces, craps on the board, and struts around like he won.
Romney is not ‘my guy’; I’ll be holding my nose as I vote for him. But after last night, I’ll be holding it a little more loosely. If nothing else, I was ecstatic to see a Republican actually fight back. Romney had some great zingers (my personal fave was when he said he had 5 boys, he’s used to people repeating the same thing over and over and trying to convince him that it’s true). When I compare it to the simpering of McCain during the last go-round — the difference is astonishing. I just wish he was an actual conservative.
That girl in the back, third from the left, is TOTALLY checking me out!
The debate in a nutshell:
Chairman Obama: It’s simple math...arithmetic..
Mitt Romney: Limit(n -> infinity, Sigma(i = 1 to n, i^2 / n))
Chairman Obama: Umm...yeah...what he said.
Obviously Muir_redwoods believes he’s just so intelligent, wise and capable that he has to be holding back.
You? Nope, she’s lookin’ at me all the way... :)
My pigeon analogy lacked “uttering unintelligible, rude, and vaguely obscene sounds”.
I am watching Fox right now. They have McCain on. He was asked why Zero was so bad last night. His reply: “Four years inside a bubble with an adoring media.”
Exactly right. This is what you get when no one challenges anything you say, and you surround yourself with yes men. This is what you get when the world fawns over you and gives you the Nobel Peace Prize for NOTHING.
Last night, Romney utterly destroyed the message and effect from the hundreds of millions of dollars that Bozo has spent up till now on ads.
The next debate is about Foreign Policy.
The events of the last few weeks all around the world are putting are pointing out the consequences of the last 4 years of Obama foreign policy in an extremely negative and disturbing fashion.
Obama is not well placed for a comeback, even with all the help he is going to get from his friends in the media
Micheal Moore agrees with you...
I was stunned to see CNN’s political staff openly saying last night “well he is the president and he’s not use to being challenged while living in the presidential bubble.....yadda yadda”. I’m screaming at them WHO’S JOB DO YOU THINK THAT IS MORON’S!”

While your point is factual, I will go with--Ohuckster was never the intellectual giant and champion speaker his acolytes made him out to be. He has always been a practiced debater, learning to read his lines with little flourishes such as the clipped uplift of voice and chin at the end of a sentence.
The man is a Southside Chicago political huckster with an agenda of divisiveness, race baiting, and class warfare to "fundamentally change this country"--into Chavez' Venesuela or Castro's Cuba.
Pray hard for the sheeple to get a brain and help us to rid ourselves of this menace to freedom and prosperity.
Six months ago I postulated that if the real Obama was ever REVEALED to the American people this narcissist might just collapse. I even suggested a possibility of a suicide attempt. Sounds like last night may just push this arrogant little prick over the edge.
It was a treat to watch.
It would be like me playing one on one against Michael Jordan. I could prepare or not prepare. In the end it wouldn’t make a whit of difference. Zero lost because he sucks.
The blonde in the back is dreaming of becoming a “Sister/Wife”. The brunette standing next to her is re-evaluating her decision to come to the gay bar.
“One thing is certain, last nights performance will not recur; the left will make sure of that”.
We do agree, I think even Obama will make sure of that.
Not entirely surprising. In terms of raw intelligence, Obama is way sharper than McCain. However, there’s no way Obama is smarter than Romney. This kind of fast-twitch smarts is what counts in a debate. Like it or not, Romney is nouveau riche, and that means he earned every penny of what he made, rather than inheriting it the old-fashioned way.
Well said. I completely agree.
“I believe it was the performance”
Act or performance, I just can’t quite grasp that it was the “real” Obama. I would love to believe it, but...
I watched the debate on CSpan because they used a split screen all night and you saw nothing but the two of them side by side all through the debate. The difference was more stark than night and day. Romney looked at obama through out the debate, he addressed every comment, answer and rebuttal directly to obama. While obama NEVER looked at Romney. He looked down, he pouted, he addressed Lehrer or the audience, but never Romney.
The GOP primary got Romney in Olympic competition shape. obama's had it soft. And let's not forget, obama's no match for Mitt in the brain power department either. And it showed.
“Stupid is, as Stupid Debates.” The debater versus the master-debater , finally the country realizes the “the emperor has no clothes.”
Now that is funny!
