As I’ve written in the past . . . DON’T LISTEN TO THE INSIDER PUNDITS. They are just as disconnected, with a few exceptions, as are the politicians they comment about.
In the first debate with Jim Lehrer, the LEFT and the Obama Camp were very upset with the moderator, because he let the candidates go after each other with no filter.
Imagine that . . . a REAL debate between two men, both of whom who want to be the leader of the Free World, and the moderator is condemned by the LEFT because he allowed them to actually slug-it-out in front of some 70 million people, MOST of whom will be responsible for picking which of the two men will become, or remain as is the case with Obama, the most powerful person of the planet.
TWO AGAINST ONE:
At the Vice Presidential campaign, the moderator was a walking billboard for Yellow Journalism, while she continuously interrupted Paul Ryan, allowing Biden to disrupt and act like a buffoon, while inserting herself into the debate by INSISTING that Paul Ryan explain himself, which was Biden’s job – NOT HERS.
THE PUNDITS EVEN THEN:
To have heard it from the Pundits . . . somehow in their elitist minds, the Vice President did well for himself and the Obama base, while Ryan “missed opportunities”.
I have no idea which debate they were watching, but it wasn’t the one that I saw.
Perhaps Ryan wouldn’t have missed opportunities as they say he did if Ryan wasn’t continuously interrupted by Biden (82 times), and not permitted to respond to outright Biden lies by Martha Raddatz, the very one-sided moderator.
THEN THERE WAS THE SECOND PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE AND CANDY CROWLEY:
During most of the debate, Crowley did a really good job, even though I thought she wouldn’t allow Romney the opportunity to respond nearly as much as she allowed Obama to finish his thoughts and rebut.
But, because Romney was doing as well as he was, it didn’t matter. In fact, I MESSAGED a friend of mine (Perry Birman) in Boca Raton during the debate that Crowley was doing a good job, BEFORE she BLEW Romney out of the water by FACT-CHECKING what Romney said about Obama’s initial reaction to the Libyan Massacre, letting Obama off the hook in what was a critical issue.
IN FACT . . . Romney was RIGHT – and Crowley was wrong, REALLY-REALLY WRONG, for which she almost immediately apologized for AFTER the debate was over. That’s like me telling Anne that I’m sorry for not shutting the barn door, while the horses gallop down the road.
THREE-MINUTE UNFAIR ADVANTAGE:
And then there were the TIMED segments, which gave each candidate TWO minutes to answer a question with time to rebut. But, after all was said and done, Obama finished the debate with THREE EXTRA MINUTES, which gave him an extremely unfair SEGMENT AND A HALF advantage.
BUT – LET’S FORGET ABOUT THE UNFAIRNESS AT THE HANDS OF CROWLEY:
Most of the Pundits rated this debate as a win for Obama, because he came out swinging. He was aggressive and energized . . .
Obama was full of crap with more enthusiasm.
Obama all but called Romney a liar without proof. He didn’t put anything on the table in terms of how he was going to fix his own MESS and create jobs. He didn’t explain why he never put forward any budget ideas, because he never passed a budget. And the budgets he presented to Congress were so ridiculous, that even within his own Party he couldn’t get a vote on them.
At the same time – Romney was resolute. He had REAL answers to serious questions. He didn’t play games with words, and fell back on his very successful record, which is an open book, unlike Obama, who or someone else, paid serious money to all but SEAL his entire past.
TOO LAZY AND/OR TOO STUPID TO VOTE:
Some people who still claim to be undecided, because according to them, neither candidate has really articulated a plan to resuscitate the economy, are in fact too lazy or too stupid to vote.
How many times does Romney have to explain his simple FIVE-PART recovery plan, before people who say that there is no plan on the table finally get it?
And if they want to get right into the weeds and really want to know the intricacies of Romney’s economic strategies, all they have to do is go to Romney’s Web Site and read the detailed FIFTY-SEVEN point plan . . . or just shut-up and don’t bother voting.
I’M PISSED-OFF AND FED-UP WITH ALL THE PUNDITS:
I heard FOX News’ Megyn Kelly and Greta Van Susteren state how an aggressive debate like this is offensive to women . . . WHAT? I think a comment like that by Kelly and Van Susteren is offensive to women.
IN THE FINAL ANALYSIS . . . Romney Cleaned-Obama’s-Clock – and the last debate on Monday will be the final nail in the coffin of a Presidency that has done more damage to the United States and the stability of the post WWII world, than have all of America’s enemies combined – past and present.
THE ONLY WAY OBAMA CAN WIN on November 6, 2012, will be if his campaign team can sufficiently cheat at the polls to win him 4-more years. Otherwise, Obama can retire with his mega-millions to Hawaii, where hopefully, he will not be able to do any more damage.
