Obama to ‘Come Out
Swinging’ in Second Debate

Bloomberg News, by Tom Schoenberg

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 10/14/2012 4:51:41 PM

President Barack Obama is likely to “come out swinging” when he debates Mitt Romney this week in an effort to curb his Republican challenger’s momentum about three weeks before the Nov. 6 election, Republican Senator Rob Portman of Ohio said today. Surrogates for the candidates on the Sunday talk shows predicted a more aggressive Obama will show up for the second presidential debate in New York on Oct. 16. “I think President Obama is going to come out swinging,” Portman, a Romney supporter, said on ABC’s “This Week” program.

Comments:
He can swing all he wants. He cannot connect because he is an abject failure and any 'swinging' around that issue will be easily identified as a lie. Romney will call him on it, as will the rest of America. He's got nothing.

All Romney need do is tell the truth and provide examples. I`m sure Obama will once again make at least one statement whereby Romney can again claim, `I don`t know what you`re talking about`. Obama cannot claim a single victory in the past 4 years. The economy is in shambles, huge tax increases are coming for all of us, foreign policy is an abject failure an all Brack can do is lie. Everyone except the Obama Sycophants and the morally blind are for more insanity.

Obama goes into this debate with 3 things weighing against him. First is he knows now that he lost the last debate by historic proportions. Second he has the pressure of a must win and as he has never been pressured to perform, and third...his record, he can't run on it.

He goes in with a self inflected handicaps, himself, his record and inability to think fast on his feet.

Get the popcorn, gonna be a fun night.

"Swinging" at what?

Reducing the debt?
Creating jobs?
Passing a budget?
Protecting or Embassys?
Protecting our troops from being murdered by Afgans?
Stopping Iran from making a nuclear weapon?

Or swinging at Romney to fire up his base?

I hope he does come out swinging. I hope he rips off his mask so Americans can see the face of the demon on national TV. His "likeability" has always been contrived. There is nothing in the least likable about this incredibly vain and arrogant man. There is nothing at all likable about the ideology of militant Leftism. Joe Biden's evil clown act merely scratched the surface of the malicious hatred that motivates these people. The core dynamic of Leftism is not love but aggression, aggression against others, society, the world, and against God. Fine words and an insinuating manner conceal the underlying anarchism and nihilism of Leftism materialism. The mainstream rhetoric of Leftism is largely an extended series of ad hominem attacks upon opponents. Obama defaults to this mode in most of his campaign speeches. It comes naturally to him to smear, slander, defame and assassinate the character of adversaries. This is what his frenzied fans are demanding from him now. Their fear has made them bloodthirsty and heedless of the possible consequences. They want him to make a Berserker charge against Romney,tear him into shreds and dance upon the remains. Let us hope that he strives to gratify them. Then Americans who still claim to find this dreadful man likable will see and understand their mistake.

Dunham only has two faces: passive and aggressive. He's played the passive card to humiliating ridicule (even SNL mocked him) and Tuesday night he'll play the aggressive one.

I'm excited because we may finally see the REAL Barry, who only bubbles to the surface on occasion. The potential for him to really lose it is great. (Please God, please).

This debate will be vastly different from anything he's ever experienced in that it may actually be the only time in his entire life that he's been publicly held accountable for what he stands for. The potential for ugly for huge. We're in for the time of our lives!

No. 40 has it -- Obama will throw a hissy fit (or several of them), tell lies about Bain, demand to see income tax returns and never reply directly to any questions about the deficits, Obamacare, Libya or Iran, and the media will call it ''aggressive debate'' and ignore whatever Romney says in reply, and the spin will make you dizzy.

There is no way Barry or BiteMe can win an honest debate because their record stinks and they have no plan for the next 4 years except spend even more. That is why they always have to have a gimmick. In debate #1, Barry's gimmick was not looking at Romney, not acknowledging him, or validating his existence. In BiteMe's debate with Ryan, the gimmick was to belittle and try to diminish Ryan by outright mocking and interruptions.

In this upcoming debate, I expect Barry's gimmick to be him acting like Mr. Sensitive to your pain. He will strut and preen and be cooooool. It won't be better than Romney, who comes across as honest, capable and genuine.

So the Devil himself is dictating tactics for the duplicitous dems? The last thing Old Ned does to those who would follow his contentious ways is destroy them for fun. (We'll have to cast this as poetically speaking, since how many still think Old Ned is still around grinning and spinning?)

Exactly wrong move in the townhall type debate setting. How do you get tough and macho and over power and win on likability?

obama to morph into something or other and Mitt gets to be Mitt again? Mitt will not have to take any substances to buoy himself up--he is used to not imbibing. Maybe a peanut butter sandwich with the fam and a bit of prayer or reflection-a Tebow moment in private so to speak?

obama the novice to carry all the weight of the socialist hope movement of Ayer and Frank Marshall Davis on his back?

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause!

Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

An autopsy on Peaches Geldof was inconclusive and toxicology tests will be conducted in an attempt to determine what killed the 25-year-old celebrity, police said Wednesday. Geldof was pronounced dead by paramedics at her home in southeast England on Monday. Kent Police said a post-mortem examination had not revealed the cause and a toxicology report could take several weeks. Geldof, the daughter of Irish musician Bob Geldof and the late TV presenter Paula Yates, had worked as a model, writer and television show host. She grew up in the glare of Britain´s press, which reveled in the late-night antics of her teenage years, and

The President is no economic illiterate, despite what conservatives think. He understands basic macroeconomics just fine, thank you – but with a twist. Mainstream Democrats worship at the altar of the New Deal. It’s an article of faith that massive government spending pulled America out of the Great Depression. (With all respect to Paul Krugman, the truth is more complicated, but that’s not within the scope of this article.)The president’s view of spending, deficits and debt is not merely Keynesian theory run amok. Its origins and objectives are far more terrifying. Where the traditional Democratic playbook for economic downturns was provided

WASHINGTON — About the only thing former President Ronald Reagan doesn´t have named after him is a mountain, not one recognized by the federal government anyway.(snip)Rep. Jared Huffman, D-Calif., said he thought DeFazio´s amendment was "terrific" but wanted to take it a step further and name the planet after Reagan. "We may want to consider going big with this Reagan-naming enthusiasm," Huffman said. "I´m beginning to see some possibilities in this." Huffman said his reasoning was that if the planet were named after Reagan, then Republicans might be more concerned with taking up legislation dealing with global warming.

Poll: 62 Percent Of Americans Believe
GOP Will Repeal Obamacare
CBS News (Wash. D.C.), by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: Scottyboy- 4/9/2014 10:06:18 AM     Post Reply
A majority of Americans believe that President Barack Obama’s signature health care law will be repealed. A new Rasmussen Reports poll found that 62 percent of likely voters believe that Republicans will repeal Obamacare, which recently marked its fourth anniversary. Only 23 percent of those polled believe that the health care law has been a success, compared to 46 percent who describe the law as a failure. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, a potential 2016 presidential candidate, offered a Republican alternative to Obama’s health care overhaul last week, saying states should play a greater role in containing health care costs while

A hereditary peer has questioned whether flatulence caused by the country’s high consumption of baked beans is adding to global warming. Viscount Simon, 73, a Labour peer who has been a member of the House of Lords for more than 20 years, raised concerns about the “smelly emissions”. His comments came as energy minister Baroness Verma answered questions in the Upper House on how the Government was tackling climate change.(snip)Lady Verma described his question as “so different”.

Secretary of State John Kerry angrily defended the Obama administration’s record on international diplomacy from Senator Jim Risch, after the Idaho Republican claimed that America’s foreign policy “is spinning out of control.” Kerry came before a Senate committee Tuesday, explaining to interested lawmakers that Russia remained an aggressive force in eastern Ukraine and that increased sanctions against Vladimir Putin’s regime seems more likely. “I do not envy the position you’re in here today,” Risch began after Kerry had outlined significant challenges in eastern Europe and elsewhere. “After the discussion we’ve had here today, I think anybody who would come in here would

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

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

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

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

President Obama pulled a surprise move Monday at the White House’s Easter Prayer Breakfast when he selected Gene Robinson to lead the closing prayer. Robinson is famously known as the first openly gay Episcopal bishop. Talking Points Memo’s Tom Kludt spotted the following tweet from Robinson, who was in attendance: (Tweet) Robinson, 66, became diocesan bishop of New Hampshire in March 2004. He retired in January 2013 and is currently a senior fellow at the progressive

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of
