Mitt Romney did what he needed to do in the debate

I have been open in my disgust with the foreign policy of both the Democrats and Republicans. Both parties subscribe to the Wilsonian Progressive notion of spreading Democracy and turning nations into welfare leeches of America. Last night’s debate had me disagreeing with Mitt Romney and Barack Obama equally. Both of their foreign policy ideas are Leftist and are not based on the national interest of America. They both believe the Islamic world can be saved by spending more money and being nice to them. Both Obama and Romney really believe that Muslims want Democracy. The truth is they want a Sharia based system and have an Imperialist agenda. I felt both men are naive and are historically ignorant when it comes to Islam. The majority of Americans are against any more interaction with the savages. But Romney and Obama both live in a Leftist bubble based on feel good academic theories. neither one lives in reality when it comes to foreign policy.

That said, I felt Mitt Romney did what he needed to do in the debate. Whether Conservatives want to hear it or not, the American public have a negative view of the Republican party’s foreign policy. George W. Bush ruined the GOP’s historical advantage in this area. His Wilsonian Progressive nation building project in Iraq turned off the American public to the GOP on foreign policy. Mitt Romney was in a straight jacket situation in last night’s debate because of this image. Romney went out of his way to alleviate the fears the Obama Regime was promoting out there about Romney. Mitt neutralized the image that he’s a clone of George W. Bush by emphasizing peace. Romney assuaged Independents that he is not a nation building ideologue like Bush was. He pivoted to the economy since a strong economy is a national security interest.

Barack Obama last night came looking for a fight. He was frustrated that Romney avoided any confrontation and kept trying to egg him on. The fallen god-king was petty and was more interested in getting zingers in. Romney did not make mistake and came across confident and thoughtful. Romney accomplished his mission, to pass the Commander in Chief test.

The debate can be summed up this way. Barack Obama was a Demagogue and Mitt Romney was Presidential. Americans

    Brilliant performance by Romney last night.

    Obama was prepped for the debate to be Yosemite Sam; “Yeeeooooouuuuuu VARMINT! Ah’m a-comin’ t’git yeeoouu, an’ Ah’m a-gonna tear yore ears off cuz yore math don’t add up!”

    Romney…was Bugs Bunny. He kept turning the hollow log so that Yosemite Sam Obama would run out the wrong end, over the cliff. Suddenly—repeatedly—Yosemite Sam Obama looked down and saw there was nothing underneath him, and plummeted.

    Romney was Bugs Bunny. Obama was Yosemite Sam. The cliff was Obama’s economy.

    The Obamalamadingdong is back on the trail with his silly “Romnesia Stage 3″ remarks. He’s President of the damn United States – couldn’t he at least FAKE acting like it?

    Maybe he’s auditioning for a gig on Jon Stewart’s fake news show when he finds himself unemployed.

    I wonder if obama and biden were coached about their poor behavior? I think it is who they are, but you would think their prep team would understand how badly that would play.

    Perhaps they were relying on the MFM being in their corner?

    Forgive the pun, but there was a certain economy in Romney’s performance – as the headline says, he did what he had to do, no more no less. As I mentioned last night, it was “workmanlike”.

    The sheer bulk of exaggerations, phony talking points and outright lies emanating from Obama and his acolytes during this campaign makes it nearly impossible to refute them and it drowns out any decent points that should, or could be made.

    Again—Romney was not looking to argue facts last night. The facts are out here and available. He was going for tone; he wanted people to see him as President, and to see Obama for a petulant, ill-prepared, snarky, angry loser.

    He set Obama up to get that, and he got it.

    @ doriangrey:

    Sweetest thing was at the beginning, when Romney, in the opening remarks, congratulated Obama for getting bin Laden.

    That made Romney look gracious, able to concede a point to his opponent—and therefore able to go in for the kill later.

    It also took bin Laden off the table; Obama couldn’t spike the football on his own because his opponent had already acknowledged it; if Obama used it he’d look churlish and arrogant. He tried, but there was no way out of it.

    Romney boxed him in from the beginning.

    HA!

    The Romney campaign doesn’t want to be associated with the story, but they did NOT make any statement to the effect that they disagreed with its accuracy.

    If I had to bet I’d say he did sell cocaine. Most people (except for the super-rich) who use drugs heavily end up trading in them to some degree.

    @ buzzsawmonkey:

    Strategic thinking. From what I’ve seen of Obama, he doesn’t do strategy. At all. A strategic thinker would hae known that cramming ObamaCare through on a completely partisan vote would come back to bite him. He should have made some concessions to get the RINOs on board. A dozen or so Republican House Members, and four or five of the congenitally reach-across-the-aisle Senators, and he’d have looked like a leaders. He wanted100% of what he wanted, and it cost him heavily. The only reason he didn’t lose the Senate was because there were so many more Democrat Senators to lose. If the split had been more like 55-45, he’d have likely lost the Senate as well as the House. As it was, if all Senators had to be elected every two years he’d have lost the Senate as well. Then, having suffered a massive Strategicv defeat, he doubled down, and veered farther Left. If he weren’t the FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT, he’d be down in the 30s in the polls. As it is, he’s at 45, and that is about where I expect him to be in two weeks, too.

    @ Rodan:

    There’s no percentage in running with this. The people who are going to vote for Obama at this stage are going to vote for him because he is black and hip, and because they are totally ignoring the past. They are still voting for the Magic Man who can bring unicorns and rainbows! A little think like maybe he was eally a low-level hood in college won’t distract them from that Bright, Shiney Obaject that they think they see. OTOH, if Romney ran with it, it could look like desperation, and Romney doesn’t need that. He isn’t desperate. Obama, OTOH, is

    Won’t be enough to win it for him. Did you see my link to Gallup this morning? Today’s 7-Day rolling average has Romney at 51% Obama at 45%. Obama has been steady at that 45% for about a week. Barring something major (I don’t even know what to give as an example), Obama can’t make that deficit up in two weeks. And people are already voting. My vote is cast, and I couldn’t take it back if I would. Romney is peaking at just the right time. I think he will be the next President of the United States.

    I heard it said somewhere the the Dem op-research people worked desperately to find skeletons in Romney’s closet only to find, in their horror, that he didn’t even have a closet.

    33 | October 23, 2012 1:06 pm

    I agree with what you said, but Mitt Romney was not trying to be a clone of GWB. George Bush is negatively perceived because of Iraq. Mitt was trying to calm fears he is for more of the same with Iran or Syria. He was trying to distance himself from GWB. Frankly I think the USA would prefer an isolationist policy, but that is dangerous too.

    I do not think Romney even wants to do what he said last night. I think Romney real goal is contain Islamic extremism, try to take a more forceful approach to the middle east, but primarily promote American economic growth. The same for China, speak strong, but then engage and promote some mutually advantageous position on negotiations.

    Now personally I wish he bashed Obama like a baby harp seal in that debate, but he made the conscious and deliberate decision not to. Mitt Romney last looked at the metrics of what he needs to do to win and this was the answer. Whether it works or not remains to be seen, but I noted that Ed Rendell wet his pants on MSNBC last night. I find Rendell craven and dangerous, but he is a smart politician and if he is scared, Romney is probably correct in the course he plotted.

    Romney has been studying Choom Boy for four years to figure out how best to defeat him.

    Choom Boy couldn’t be bothered to study up for four days for his first debate; by all accounts, he barely put in four hours.

    Choom Boy will discover his error in two weeks.

    The biggest failure of this First Black President was and is that he passed up a golder opportunity to be a leader of all Americans. He is by far the most divisive modern day President. He has used social and economic status to divide and foster envy. He has used race to frighten and incite. Has pitted the young against the old. He was weaned on Chicago destructive politics. In the debate last night you could see his jaw muscles tighten and his temples pulse in a herculean effort to keep from exploding. He was and is nothing more than a community organizer accustomed to shouting like a cheerleader to the hometown crowd.


  37. 38 | October 23, 2012 1:16 pm

    @ EBL:

    Romney did distance himself from Bush. That is a good thing because Bush’s nation building policies were a failure. He laid the groundwork for the Arab Spring. I hope Romney stays out of the Mideast morass and let the savages kill each other.

    Obama is a hermit crab. The hermit crab has no shell of its own; it moves into the hollow, empty, discarded shell of some dead creature and adopts it as its own. The hermit crab is nature’s Occupier.

    Hermit Crab Obama moved into the hollow, empty, discarded shells of anti-colonialism, liberation theology, critical race theory, and Marxism generally.

    Sadly, then, this hermit crab moved into the nation’s hope and desire for a unifying black leader with a vision like that articulated by Allen West, and Occupied that. He was never that leader, he never intended or wanted to be or was capable of being that leader—but, tired of the filthy discarded shells in which he was used to walking crabwise, he decided to become the first Occupier of that pristine, not-yet-used Unifying Leader shell, and all he did was befoul it.

    In observing the Romneys, the comparison to the Kennedys is irresistible. The Romneys, in actuality, are what the Kennedys were always sold as, but never quite lived up to. Just in human terms, they’re an incredibly impressive bunch of people on any number of levels.

    Discussions of his policies are a welcome part of the process, but it’s rare that we have such a good and decent man even pursue the presidency. Should he win, and I believe he will, that’s a pretty good place to be, as a country.

    Later, folks!

    Sandra Fluke’s crying in her cups that only 10 people showed up to see her in Reno on Sunday, saying that the evil conservatives are once again trying to shut her up.

    Except – no one’s even talking about her. Maybe only 10 people showed up just to get a photo of her – because it isn’t every day you can see a fool that Rush Limbaugh called a slut.

    She might want to ask Mama Moonbat Sheehan how it feels to have no one really give a crap about you except the media.

    I noticed last night on the Cable news they screaming and twisting themselves in pretzels trying to defend obama. Take Juan Williams good heaven he was yelling and everything trying to say obama won and what Mitt Romney said about the military was a lie. Sorry Juan obama is cutting the military in half after the first of the year. I’m just about sick and tired of obama saying *the military isn’t even asking to be given more money to increase it’s power* Really? This is all he has….everytime he goes back the meme the military isn’t asking for this. Sorry after his inane remarks concerning the military doesn’t use bayonets and the ships that go under water …I was shaking my head..what an idiot.

    Isn’t that horrible? You can’t even put a sign in your yard opposing obama without getting being put in the hospital??? And obama has said what concerning this? It seems like he should denouce such activity..but oh no I think he likes that this stuff is going on.

    The fallen god-king was petty and was more interested in getting zingers in. Romney did not make [that] mistake and came across confident and thoughtful. Romney accomplished his mission, to pass the Commander in Chief test.

    Rodan, I really don’t like to nit pick, but this is the Thread bearer. Put ‘that’ there.

    Now that was a great debate. I thought it the best of three. Mitt had the nards to call the Muslim Right Jihadists and labeled them as terrorists. This is something no other leader in the near capacity to lead our country has done. Kerry called it a nuisance; Bush called it a ROP; Chair has yet to define it, but did go to Cairo instead of Israel. Here is a great quote from the Mittster.

    Mr. President, the reason I call it an apology tour is because you went to the Middle East and you flew to — to Egypt and to Saudi Arabia and to — to Turkey and Iraq. And — and by way, you skipped Israel, our closest friend in the region, but you went to the other nations. And by the way, they noticed that you skipped Israel. And then in those nations and on Arabic TV you said that America had been dismissive and derisive. You said that on occasion America had dictated to other nations.

    R battered the Chair with truth and won…big time.

The President of the United States should never do such a thing. I believe Romney gets it. Sure he didn’t say the things a lot of people would have liked him to say …but he came across as presidental and does have knowledge about what is going on in the middle east.

    When I was catching up, I noticed on a previous thread that you asked what the basic ammo load for an M-16/M-4 is. Basic load, for planning purposes, is 210 rounds (7 30 round magazines).

    That’s not to say that many people don’t carry more than that, because they frequently do, particularly if they’re going out on an operation where they think they’ll need it.

    What struck me most, as if in reaching moments to solidify his lies, was his repeated notion that Israel was our greatest ally in the regions. With thought to plausibly deniability I can assume he was speaking for others and not himself. Which makes the most sense as it’s clear, from his long record, he is NO friend of Israel.

    Romney in my opinion has broken the *messiah aura* around obama in the first debate, in the second debate Romney showed he can put up a fight, and in the third debate he showed he can be reasonable and has knowledge on domestic and foreign policy and is willing to call the bad guys excatly who they are Islamist terrorists..Obama couldn’t acknowledge that.

    Michelle Obama is doing the overdressed nouveau riche thing. She’s flaunting it, because she’s insecure and uncomfortable with herself.

    Ann Romney has nothing to prove. She wouldn’t wear a $300 T-shirt with fake oil smears printed on it to an oil-spill photo-op, as Michelle Obama did; she’d wear an old shirt and an old pair of jeans and look 100 times better because she was dressed for the occasion instead of overdressing for it.

    Yep he needs to be fired. The community organizer needs to go..so what he was in the Senate …he didn’t do anything there. Last night that lady in the front row in Luntz’s Focus group was absolutely LIVID! Not only about Benghazi but about how obama has gotten us in trillions of dollars of debt!!! I think Luntz made a mistake in having her on his panel she actually knows what is going on. The others thought obama was great on his foreign policy. Really all I heard out of him concerning his foreign policy was babbling and rambling.

    As to the belts, Michelle wears wide belts cinched over her chest under her bosom in order to try and minimize the size of her ass.

    She doesn’t realize that walking around in loud neon getups destroys any benefit she might theoretically get from the belt—which doesn’t work anyway.
