Why Obama Will Lose
All Three Debates

American Thinker, by Monty Pelerin

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 10/8/2012 8:18:16 AM

President Obama had a terrible debate last week. Supporters and opponents were shocked that he could be so off his game. They shouldn't have been. That they were indicates that they don't understand Obama's serious, likely insurmountable re-election problem. Obama supporters and detractors expect the old Obama to show better form in the next debate. But that is not going to happen! It cannot, because Obama's critical problem is not correctable.

His flashy smile can't make up for what he doesn't know or for what he's done the past 4 years.

He will come ready to re-fight the last debate. Pre-loaded with a string of lies to attack Romney with. The audience will be packed with dupes spouting pre-screened questions.

All Romney has to do is not play their game. Sidestep the questions and lies. No matter what is asked or said, use the time to get his own points across. Given that this is a Foreign policy debate, this could be a rout.

Romney: "For one of our greatest allies in a time of increasingly instability and violence in the the Middle East, I took time from my campaign to meet with Prime Minster Netanyahu. I did not think like the President that being a guest on "The View" and saying that he was "eye candy" exhibited any kind of leadership from the world's greatest defender of liberty."

The overarching leftoid response to Romneys win was some variation of "Even though Romney spewed nothing but lies" followed by a long winded recitation of how hard it is to be president and pure amazement at how poorly the annointed one performed, although obviously it wasn't his fault (Romneys cheat hanky and all).

Very few followed the "spewed lies" comment with any refutation of fact. They simply left the word Lie hang out there hoping it would stick. Those that did try to refute were left with unconvincing arguments like "Just because Romney didn't specically call for a 5 trillion dollar tax hike expert economists have shown that it could happen as a result of ... insert boogeyman conspiracy plot here.

If anything Obama is even more vulnerable on Foreign policy. Most of us had Obama's utopian worldview in our late teens. He relates so well with college students BECAUSE he has that same naieve understanding of the world.

He's pushing a worldview most in the country have strongly held, and then completely abandoned in the face of the cold harsh reality of human nature.

He is going to be the Tobacco Salesman in a room full of ex smokers. He's toast.

What poster 4 said. Be ready for spew from obama about ----- "every independent fact checker, according to every independent analysis, all economists who reviewed statements made by Mr. Romney." I'm sure Mitt is well prepared for the ugly attack. He will prevail.

"You cannot fatten the pig on market day." This I heard from an Irish student who was being encouraged to cram for a test. Obama cannot find answers to remove 4 years of abject failure.

I liked the analogy of the golden and pit bull. Very true. obama does not speak extemporaneously very well and it shows. No teleprompter to read and he just isn't very good or believable. I am sure he will boo hoo with someone from the crowd and offer a Kleenex and he cannot offer any answers. I am also looking forward to the Ryan/biden debate. I know they keep saying how good biden is but I don't believe it for a minute.

#4 "All Romney has to do is not play their game. Sidestep the questions and lies. No matter what is asked or said, use the time to get his own points across. Given that this is a Foreign policy debate, this could be a rout."
Exactly!
Foxnews had Debbie Blabbermouth-Shultz on yesterday morning. She was asked a direct question…she responded with a thirty second dissertation that had absolutely nothing to do with the question but was actually a repeat of democrat talking points. Of course she wasn't called on it.
Romney and Ryan should do the same thing when hit with 'gottcha' questions.

You can bet your boots Romney is not going to fall into his own inevitability of winning the last two debates, but will be more determined to even perfect his last performance.

What I do expect, is for Obama to try to charm his Town Hall questioners. 'Too late the phalarope,' they will be looking past that for answers. The media of course realizes it must find a little something wonderful to prop up their boy.

Look for a manufactured "October Surprise" before the next R/O debate if (probable) the debate on Thursday between Joe and Paul goes south for the administration. Word's out he's thinking about bombing or irritating Libya somehow so he can look presidential. It's all about the ME at this point. Any little skirmish there will require his "leadership" which will trump the debate.

He'd rather not be "present" at anymore of these "ridiculous" events. Give him Hollyweird where he can shine!

The Obamamedia spin-talkers have all gotten the memo that their idol got taken to the woodshed because Romney lied with the journal-list understood implication that Jim Leher was "too passive."
[Translation: Leher failed to provide softballs tailored to Obama's know talking-point repertoire.]

Absolute certain prediction for debate #2: The "town hall" will be packed with Obama supporters all reading written questions provided in advance by Obama operatives.

We will be lucky if any of the "audience" are Romney supporters rather than Obama supporters who lied in whatever screening takes place.

Simple, his supposed nice smile is now a negative...he is arrogant and condescending and uses the smile as a signal he's upset.

Also he's got nothing to talk about but bash Mitt, and Mitt is not taking it one more second, he's fighting back and kicking Obama's rear all over the stage.

Love it Libs, it gets worse!

As Romney was applying the surgeon's scalpel to Obama's half-truths and outright falsehoods in last Wednesday's debate, the outmatched and humiliated incumbent's face wore the phony smile of ignominious defeat.

"Monty Pelerin"--I like that nom de plume!--is surely correct that Obama won't improve in the next two debates because those abilities just don't inhere in him. He's spent a lifetime pretending to be someone he will never be: an eminence grise, a deep thinker, a wonk with abilities above those of the people whom he has chosen to surround him. In truth he's just a noisemaker that someone else must program.

Obama's trembling smile reminds me of a passage in Tom Wolfe's great Mau-Mauing the Flak Catchers.

"'Ha-unnnnh,' says the Flak Catcher. It is one of those laughs that starts out as a laugh but ends up like he got hit in the stomach halfway through. It's the first assault on his dignity. So he breaks into his s***-eating grin, which is always phase two. Why do so many bureaucrats, deans, preachers, college presidents, try to smile when the mau-mauing starts? It's fatal, this smiling. When some bad dude is challenging your manhood, your smile just proves that he is right and you are chickens***--unless you are a bad man yourself with so much heart that you can make that smile say, 'Just keep on talking, sucker, because I'm gonna count to ten and then squash you.'"

Obama the Flak Catcher has been transformed into a spear catcher.

Every thing said about b0 is true and it may not matter. See Star Parker's article immediately above.
We, Lucialle readers, are not the significant part of the electorate that we once were. We have to show the non-white, non-married, non-religious that b0 is just as bad for them as he is for us. No sale = no sale.

Labor Fascism in Chattanooga

As the labor movement tells the story, two months ago, the silly, ungrateful Volkswagen factory workers in Tennessee foolishly rejected the generous invitation of the company and the United Auto Workers to welcome the Detroit-killing union with open arms. In an election supervised by the federal National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), the workers in VW´s Chattanooga plant rejected UAW representation by a vote of 712 to 626. Amazingly, the UAW and the automaker both refuse to take the workers´ "no" for an answer. The two sides are acting in unison to overturn the democratically expressed will of the workers.

For more than 160 years, Henry David Thoreau´s essay on Civil Disobedience has inspired Americans to "make known what kind of government would command his respect" so that we could live under that government in good conscience. Ultimately, in a free society, that´s all we have that is truly our own; our conscience. Following its dictates, says Thoreau, is the only rational way to live your life and be true to oneself. It had been years since I read Civil Disobedience and I was surpised by how Cliven Bundy´s words echoed many of the theses in the essay. Legal experts overwhelmingly agree

A Soros-funded nonprofit New Yorker magazine called “one of the most important radical environmental groups in the country” has issued a statement denouncing the Bureau of Land Management‘s (BLM) decision to back away from a showdown with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and hundreds of supporters. A scientist for The Center for Biological Diversity (CBD) blasted BLM saying the federal agency “has a sacred duty to manage our public lands in the public interest…instead it is allowing a freeloading rancher and armed thugs to seize hundreds of thousands of acres of the people’s land as their own fiefdom.” CBD is funded by Earthjustice

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
