Knockout: Mitt Romney Crushes Barack
Obama in First Presidential Debate

P J Media, by Bryan Preston

Original Article

Posted By:ketchuplover, 10/4/2012 3:31:13 AM

The first presidential debate opened with a stark contrast: A blue tie on President Barack Obama and a red tie on Gov. Mitt Romney. (snip) By about the 15 minute mark, President Obama appeared to be annoyed. That came after an exchange in which Gov. Romney interrupted moderator Jim Lehrer to deconstruct a misleading Obama charge that Romney plans to raise taxes on the middle class and cut taxes on the rich. Gov. Romney consistently delivered piles of facts, combined with stories about American workers and businesses that put flesh on those facts. It was an extremely effective strategy, showing

Comments:
I watched it on CSpan. Before the debate began, Jim Lehrer repeatedly emphasized to the audience the importance of their silence. And so when the Entertainer in Chief made his sappy "Sweetie" comment and when he brought in Donald Trump, etc., he was met with silence. No doubt this had to have shook him up. He's used to being the adored, applauded, aggrandized one. Not tonight. Now the next Pres debate will be in a Townhall format. I suspect the Pres. will feel a little more in his league there.

Romney is our Clinton--ha!

Romney hit Obammy with his own Gangnam Style!

But despite all my gloating I know that if you ask any hunter, they will tell you a wounded animal is twice as dangerous as normal ... and even worse when it's trapped! Look for an October surprise from Obammy like bombing Iran, sinking a foreign sub, or something that puts our military at risk.

My Mitt sticker is going onto my car window today ....then I will drive over to the Whole Foods parking lot, armed with notes that I can stick under the windshield wipers of vehicles with O stickers that say....
"Hi Friend:
I just wanted to let you know that some knucklehead vandalized your car by slapping an Obama sticker on it. The last thing you want is to be driving around all day looking like an idiot.
Take care. A Good Samaritan."

The imposter’s face contorted in pain so many times, he could have been playing Captain Queeg in The Caine Mutiny.
Mitt spoke well for all the good people in America. He was prepared and showed his intelligence and knowledge every minute. For the very first time, he made the word "compromise"(with all those socialists) sound good. Truly, Mitt showed how a real president conducts himself. Maybe Clint inspired him with the empty suit approach. They both made quotable, timeless comments! #39 asks a great question: was Obie looking to Lehr to "help me"? #45 warns we are in for the biggest ever attempt of election fraud from the Soros commies. Unlike any other of his appearances, Obie was so pushed by truth that he gave no side of his mouth “jive ass talk”. Aside from Mitt’s pleasantly unstoppable clarity and quiet “push” forcefulness, the most amazing other gift was Obie’s pained Queeg-like face looking down in anguish (maybe at unhelpful text messages?), like severe pain in the stomach, and his dull, repetitious responses as if nobody was actually taking notes, the same lies over and over. Talk about dulled down. What WAS he smoking in the green room? We all ask! One prominent doctor suspects he’s still connected to the choom gang; looked confused, bumbling, disinterested. Obie was totally NOT COOL. Mitt was speaking for all honest Americans elegant, simple truth.

Barack Obama has been the POTUS and Commander in Chief for four years.
He should not have needed a second of preparation.
Romney knew more about the Obama administration
than Obama did.
Obama is pathologically lazy.
Obama suffers from the mental disorder of
Narcissistic Personality Disorder.
Obama has skated through life , up until last night.
And Obama's admitted history of drug use makes one wonder if he was back on the crack pipe again.
His eyes looked so bizarre , I couldn't tell if the pupils were dilated from coke or constricted from some other drug.
Street or prescription.
No wonder he's hidden his college records and medical history.

In the Arena of Ideas Mitt came armed with facts, numbers, plans, common sense, the truth and the confidence that comes with all that.
The Obamboozler finally showed us some of that transparency he bragged about when he up in his transparent robe of nothingness. The neked Marxist never had a chance.

Gov. Romney gave an oustanding performance, with facts to backup his points.Obamma at times was sulking lookind downwards not facing eye to eye with his opponent. It reminded me of a student having to stay in class after school and being tutored until he understood and got it right.CNN had a poll of registered voters and the score was Gov. Romney 67% Obama 25%.Perhaps you will now see less of the Romney should do this or that by the MSM and Fox News Chris Wallace, Brit Hume & Bret Baier's weighted left wing panel.Doubters will start listening to Dick Morris ,he had it right. Gov Romney made my Day !

I didn't watch the debate last night since I have an early work call but I rearranged my schedule to watch the Ryan/Plugs debate.
It seems Our Lord was BOMBARDED with prayers for Mitt's performance and HE came through for us. Thank You, Father for watching over Mitt and giving him the right words and demeanor for the occasion. I have faith that our 'long, national nightmare' may really be coming to an end.
The Lord also knows that Mitt will be a trustworthy ally for His people Israel.

I was so pleased by Romney's performance and that 0bama truly displayed the incompetent, empty poseur he is. Without his teleprompter he is nothing. Romney was strong, confident and had a strong grasp of all the facts and statistics that 0bama obviously lacked. For the first time in awhile I am feeling much better about the election. However, I do know that the 0bama regime is capable of anything and they will do anything to win so I remain on guard. I won't breath easy until we have won handily on November 6. I was disappointed I couldn't get on the Lucianne site last night only for a brief moment.

On the theme of Poster 70's "signs of the times," I live in a small heavily democrat city in blue Connecticut, and I still can't believe that I see Obama/Biden bumper stickers on cars. There are fewer, but still there.
That made seeing a huge billboard's message near a gas station so heartening. It says, "OBAMA = The Entry Drug to SOCIALISM." The first and last word in bright red caps! Our newspaper identified a local businessman as behind it, with the comments section of the story full of sadness from liberals who had been boycotting the gas station, thinking the owner had put it up. Not working out, huh?

I now have some faith, not just in Romney's huge success last night, but just received an email from grandson who is a freshman at George Washington Univ. right in the middle of everything. He told me last night they were all going to watch the debates and that all the people were very political!! However, all of them agreed that Romney won! My dear grandson is voting for the first time in his life, at 18 and I hope he follows through and votes for the right man. Obama was a disgrace to the office of President.

I am still waiting to see the article analyzing the impact of Romney's thrashing of Zero in this period of early voting! Last week early voting was supposedly an advantage for Zero and was cited as a reason for the MSM to claim the race was over and Zero the victor...using their logic, isn't the shoe now on the other foot?

When Romney made his joke to Obumbler after he made his 20 year anniversary shout out to his "sweety" I knew that Obama was in for it. Romney won the debate because he was relaxed, factual, sharp and he took it to Odumbo with the respect due to the office not the man. Everytime he talked to him he looked directly at him. The split takes told everything. Obama was looking down and dour and was stumbling while trying to be witty. He even gave Lehrer the help me look and when it was over he couldn't wait to leave the stage. Romney's best line was when he told DA WUUN that he's been a business man for 25 years and he didn't know what he was talking about. The look on Odummer's face was priceless. I can't wait for debate #2. Even with the townhall format the governor will smoke Ododo like a pack of menthol lights.

I am grateful to Governor Romney for all hIs hard work and dedication in preparing for this debate, and for the presidency. He is a man of great character and wisdom, and a true hero in his efforts to steer the nation from the edge of disaster. And now, even his worst enemies are having to acknowledge his qualities, if only to themselves.

Great comments folks! Hey, when I turned on the TV this morning, the first thing I saw was Obama and his campaign people all trying to spin it back to his favor. He kept trying to claim that Romney had been saying for 18 months that he was going to cut $5 Trillion in taxes and give a $2 Trillion increase in defense spending. Yes, even after Romney said that wasn't his plan at all over 5 times. He also is still claiming that companies get breaks and incentives to send jobs overseas. Another lie. Finally, they are parsing words with regard to the independent council who makes decisions about coverage under Obamacare. Zero claims that the group cannot legally tell people what treatment they can or can't have. Well, of course, not specifically to each individual--but they do decide what courses are approved and not approved and under what circumstances they will be allowed. What is the difference in the long run? Nothing...they ARE still "death panels". That is the truth.

I want to see Biden's head taken off at the knees next week by Paul Ryan.

I loath Obama for what he is and what he stands for I simply loath Biden for who he is.

The progressives need to have their face rubbed in their own incompetence. You cannot be nice to them. They are irrational

Last night is probably the best example I've seen in years of what I mean when I say that the opposite of un-reason is not reason but force but force does not always equal violence. Mitt Romney FORCED the unreasonable left to look at themselves.

Obama was not unprepared. He knew his slogans. He just was not ready to confront truth. I was glad to see Sununu keeping up the attack this morning and calling Obama lazy. All leftist are morally lazy.

Also, notice that over night a whole raft of very good Romney adds have appeared on TV in various states

Romney knew exactly what he wanted and followed through on it.

He handled both Obama and Lehrer.

He was prepared, focused, and quick on his feet. I really doubt Obama is capable of the type of performance that Romney put on. I did not think Romney had that type of performance in him either. Nice to be proved wrong. Romney is formidable.

The first question was telling. Obama got to answer it first. When Romney's turn came, he gave multiple reasons why Obama was wrong. It went like that all evening.

When Obama lied or spouted nonsense, Romney did not let him slide even once.

Only thing the Dems can hope for is to get Romney off his game plan. Perhaps some question that Romney had not thought out in advance. Good luck with that.

If Romney stays on his game, the debates will be very painful for Obama and company.

November 6 is 'Impeach Obama' day. Send him packing, people! In a sane world, Obama should lose by 30-40 million votes, and get less than 40% of the vote.

While at the health club last night, happened to pick up the first half of the debate on CNN and they had the real tracking graph at the bottom that was showing how men and women were resonating depending which candidate was talking and what he was saying. THe women's curve always started peaking the minute Obie opened his mouth and it did not much matter what he said. In Romney's case, both the men and women's tracking curve would peak almost equally at time. WHile not very scientific, the tracking curve was interesting in regards to the groups that resonated with a candidate.

Mickey Rooney, Legendary Actor,

Mickey Rooney, the pint-sized actor who was one of MGM’s giant box office attractions in the late ’30s and early ’40s, died on Sunday. He was 93. As adept at comedy as drama and an excellent singer and dancer, Rooney was regarded as the consummate entertainer. During a prolific career on stage and screen that spanned eight decades (“I’ve been working all my life, but it seems longer,” he once said), he was nominated for four Academy Awards and received two special Oscars, the Juvenile Award in 1939 (shared with Deanna Durbin) and one in 1983 for his body of work.

Last week, news broke that a congressional candidate in Gainesville had a secret pastime: impersonating vampires. And superheroes. Some people would call this nutty. In Florida, we just call it Tuesday. Seriously, that´s not even our highest-profile vampire story. Remember the "vampire killings" from Lake County? Some of our stories are heartbreakingly tragic. But so many are also mind-numbingly strange. In Florida, we do weird the way Kansas does wheat. Here, giant pet snakes escape. And breed. And then invade our national parks. We have fish that eat people, alligators that eat people and people who eat people.

The idea behind Txt Shield, which runs on Android phones, is to short-circuit any texting capability when people are cruising down the highway, according to brothers Philip and Geoffrey Stiles, co-founders and partners in Txt Shield LLC.

President Obama’s Department of Homeland Security caught then released 68,000 aliens who had previously been convicted of a crime, a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies shows. The report, provided to Breitbart News ahead of its late Sunday evening release, reviews internal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) metrics to conclude that the Obama administration released 35 percent—or 68,000—convicted criminal aliens back into the U.S. general population when they could have been deported.

President Obama says the thousands of Irish immigrants in the US are being denied opportunities because of the US strict immigration laws. The President was speaking the traditional Shamrock ceremony at the White House as part of the St Patrick´s Day celebrations. The issue of immigration reform was a priority for the Irish Government delegation, led by Enda Kenny. The delegation has been lobbying in Washington during the St Patrick´s Day trip for reforms to benefit the 50,000 undocumented Irish there. President Obama said too many undocumented Irish were denied the chance to contribute to society as they were not able to pay taxes

President Barack Obama held a Spanish language town hall at the Newseum last week in which he was interviewed by reporters from some of the largest Spanish media outlets in the world. During the interview, he was asked a question from a man who wanted to buy Obamacare for a family of three but couldn’t afford it. (Snip) Obama couldn’t settle on a single answer to the question, so he instead suggested that the man should just sign up for Medicaid, blamed Texas for affordable insurance not being available, and concluded by saying the man should cancel his telephone service

Why discredited ‘scandals’
get less attention
MSNBC, by Steve Benen    Original Article
Posted By: ketchuplover- 3/12/2014 8:48:55 PM     Post Reply
On Fox News last night, Bill O’Reilly struggled with a question he apparently finds confusing: why aren’t major news organizations covering the IRS “scandal” to his satisfaction. Lois Lerner, the former head of the IRS’ tax exempt division, took the Fifth last week, but most of the media seemed indifferent. (Snip) That’s one possible explanation. But in the interest of giving O’Reilly and Goldberg something else to consider, there’s a more plausible, reality-based reason the media has lost interest in this scandal: there is no scandal. As we’ve discussed on more than a few occasions, the story has already been

The past two days have revealed the dangerous ramifications of the narrow-minded foreign policy elite in Washington, and a media establishment that has for so much of President Obama’s tenure accepted the statements of the administration as gospel. (Snip) If this is the sort of foreign policy anticipation that the establishment delivers, it’s little surprise that no one trusts America’s self-styled policy elites any more. They are too used to judging the world according to the patterns toward which they are already biased, as opposed to seeing it as it is.

President Obama has made liberal use of "executive action" throughout his presidency, and pledged to make even more use of executive action in this year´s State of the Union speech. He seems to think that because Republicans don´t want to implement his agenda, he can go around Congress. The Heritage Foundation is out with a new report on President Obama´s executive actions, titled "An Executive Unbound," finding that "abusive, unlawful, even potentially unconstitutional unilateral action has been a hallmark of the Obama Administration." They´ve also compiled a list of the top ten abusive executive actions taken by the President.

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'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. 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. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

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

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. 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?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Glen Campbell has been suffering from Alzheimer´s for over three years, but the Grammy-winning singer, 78, has recently moved into a facility, PEOPLE has confirmed. "He was moved to an Alzhemier´s facility last week," says a family friend. "I´m not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We´ll know more next week." The "Rhinestone Cowboy" crooner first opened up about having Alzheimer´s to PEOPLE in an exclusive 2011 interview. Campbell and his fourth wife, Kim Woolen, decided to go public with the news because Campbell hoped to embark on a final farewell live tour. The couple wanted his

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
