Last night, Mitt Romney lost.
Yes, you read that right

Telegraph [UK], by Dan Hodges

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 10/4/2012 6:57:25 PM

Barack Obama won last night’s debate. Or to be more precise, Mitt Romney lost it. That’s obviously not the conventional view of the commentators or pollsters, who gave the GOP candidate a clear win. But that doesn’t matter. He still lost. There are three reasons why Romney experienced a soft implosion of his already tenuous electoral chances. First, there was no “gotcha moment”. Before the debate every political analyst, be they from the Left or Right, agreed that Romney had to land a knockout blow, which he didn’t. There was no major presidential gaffe. No glancing

Comments:
And now for something completely different. . . .

Hodges is the T's batspit crazy left-wing nut.

Sorry Dan,
You are being ignored by those smarter than you as if you were a child with a mental deficiency having a tantrum. In a way, you are to be pitied, because you are insignificant and really don't know it yet. We are at a point where we can watch a very smart man with a very broad plan take apart a sniveling child (Obama/much like you) --and you do not even see the "Knockout blow" that you feel was needed. It was there for us adults, but it was too deft for you to pick out. Romney cheerfully told the truth. When you are using truthful facts, you do not need to lower yourself to deceit and drama, which is all bundled up in your world of darkness. It will be the same with Ryan and again twice more with Romney. Feel the freedom.

I'm looking forward t even bigger "defeats" coming up, especially if Romney "loses" the election (in this guy's warped mind).

FTA: most voters will remember from the debate was Barack Obama sending his wife Michelle greetings on their wedding anniversary

Would that be the wedding that was performed by Rev. Jeremiah Wright? Where was the Rev last night?

Thoughts and writings from an A #1 Obama butt-boy!

I'll bet Hodges thinks Chamberlain played the winning-hand at Munich!

And what was the success of the "numerous independent political campaigns" he managed???

"Tribal loyalty?" Is there a tribe of lunatics running amok in GB?

Perhaps a placid English village is looking for a new idiot?

#1, Kindly do not lump all Britons in with Dan Hodges. Not all Britons "just don't get" Americans. You must have seen the names of good writers like Toby Harnden, James Delingpole and Melanie Phillips--although Harnden became a U.S. citizen about the same time I did, 2004. And I assure you that of a population around 62 million, a number of other Britons DO get Americans as well.

Fortunately for my husband I get Americans, and fortunately for me, he gets Britons--but he still dislikes Marmite.

Dan Hodges is so entertainingly partisan (or psychotic) that I have prepared a little ditty for him. To the tune of "Danny Boy" all together now:

O Danny Boy
That pipe, that pipe you’re smoking
Is filled with stuff the law will not allow
The summer’s gone and you just keep on toking
Obama’s toast and Romney will not bow

But come ye back when Mitt is in the White House
With Congress Republican red just like a rose

‘Tis we’ll be here, with smiles upon our faces
O Danny Boy, O Danny Boy
We loathe you so.

And speaking of "batspit crazy," what's with #1? Pleased to see the Winnie bust returned, were you.

BTW, if BHO thinks he can intimidate Romney by being 'forceful,' and belligerent next debate, he will still be just as stupid and come off looking like Biden and that isn't something anyone wants to be.

Deep in the flat and featureless landscape of eastern Ukraine, it is all too ­possible that the outline of World War III is taking shape. Whipped up by the Kremlin ­propaganda machine and led by Russian ­military intelligence, armed men are erecting road blocks, storming police stations and ripping down the country’s flag. They are demolishing not just their own country — bankrupt, ill-run and beleaguered — but also the post-war order that has kept most of Europe and us, here in Britain, safe and free for decades. Vladimir Putin is striking at the heart of the West.

Why are the US authorities trying to extradite and imprison arguably the one man in the world with the skills and influence to bring peace, stability, and prosperity to fractured Ukraine? This week I flew to Vienna, Austria, to find out in a world exclusive interview with Ukraine´s Dmitry Firtash, the billionaire industrialist, philanthropist, and political fixer who is striving desperately to help his country forge an independent future free from the bullying of Russia and the meddling of the West in next month´s scheduled elections. And his biggest obstacle? According to Firtash, it´s Barack Obama.

The Internal Revenue Service is considering a bold move to label perks like free lunch given to workers by companies as taxable. The agency wonders if freebies like haircuts and gym memberships are a way to compensate the highly skilled rather than just a way to jumpstart productivity. After all, argue proponents of such a tax, workers at Silicon Valley firms like Google and Facebook receive free meals from famously fancy in-house eateries every day. Some companies even go a step further by offering freebies like haircuts, car services, and child care. Typical workaday folks can expect to pay for all

Remember Lovebug? This was the computer virus that swept through a young and fresh-faced internet in May 2000. Back then we were told it would do to cyberspace what the Black Death had done to Europe in the 14th century. We all got funny emails with “ILOVEYOU” attachments and when we tried to open them our computers exploded. Or rather they didn’t, though you wouldn’t have known that from the hysteria. Then along came MyDoom, Netsky, Witty and Melissa and, now, the deliciously named Heartbleed bug, which the US security expert Bruce Schneier has described as “catastrophic” and which has

Air pollution in China and other Asian countries is causing storms in North America to become stronger and changing weather patterns across the Northern Hemisphere, a new Nasa study has claimed. [Snip] The effect was most pronounced during the winter, the team said.

According to figures compiled by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, Moscow spent 4.1 percent of its GDP on defence in 2013, an increase of 0.6 percent over the past 10 years. By contrast, the United States spent 3.8 percent of GDP on defence and Britain spent just 2.3 percent. The only neighbouring country that spends more is Azerbaijan, with 4.7 percent. Defence spending in Ukraine has also rocketed by 16 percent in the space of a year following the crisis in Crimea and continued tensions with Russia over the eastern provinces of the country.

Up to 11 people are believed dead after airborne Ukrainian troops seized an airport in the country´s rebellious east today in the first sign that a promised ´anti-terror operation´ had begun against pro-Russian separatists. Heavy gunfire was heard at Kramatorsk airport as Ukraine´s interim president announced that his forces had retaken the site from militants who been seizing control of cities since last week. Local media reported between four to 11 deaths in the attack, but there was no immediate confirmation of any casualties. Russia said it was ´deeply concerned´ over reports of casualties in the region today. It comes

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you
