nevermind the crazy woman in the corner
So is it clear yet to anyone that “debates” are the dumbest, least useful way on the planet to choose a leader?
JELL-O wrestling would be more effective.
Obama, … leaned forward in his chair and leapt to his feet last night on the theater-in-the- round-style stage, interrupting Romney six times in the first half of the 90-minute debate to interject: “Not true.”
And why is it that
Nitt Mitt & Co believe it’s somehow “too hard” to explain the principle of encouraging investment [not to say encouraging savings for retirement] through low [or NO] taxes on dividends/capitol gains? It’s not that hard to say: encourages investment, encourages growth, that same money has already been taxed — twice from that same individual and another time or twelve via the company that made those dividends.
See? not hard.
And for a guy not to recognize a “gimmie” question as an invitation to make a well-planned, eloquent prepared closing speech… *facepalm*
[Obobo:] “We haven’t heard from the governor any specifics beyond Big Bird and eliminating funding for Planned Parenthood in terms of how he pays for” his tax cut and spending plans, …
“You wouldn’t take such a sketchy deal, and neither should you, the American people — because the math doesn’t add up.”
How hard is it to string together a few phrases like: “I have spent 35 years successfully making sure the math adds up. In the XXX companies Bain brought back from the edge of bankruptcy, in the X,XXX jobs that saved, and the $XXX,XXX,XXX that put into the US economy. In the Olympics — a $XX,XXX,XXX undertaking — that was losing XX and, after I finished, made XXXX and brought $XX,XXX,XXX of business to the local economy and $XX,XXX,XXX to the US economy. In MA where bla bla bla more of same…
How did that man stand there gaping like a goldfish?
He wasn’t prepared with quotes of Obobo railing on about Teh Eviiil Video — in the rose garden, at the UN, in front of the coffins??!?
The one time Mitt almost came out was when he used The Dad technique – and The Dad Voice – on Obobo nailing him down to owning his evasions. once.
Obobo said “get the transcript. Here it is:
[Rose Garden Speech]…I’ve also directed my administration to increase our security at diplomatic posts around the world. And make no mistake, we will work with the Libyan government to bring to justice the killers who attacked our people.
Since our founding, the United States has been a nation that respects all faiths. We reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. But there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence. None. The world must stand together to unequivocally reject these brutal acts.
No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character, or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for. Today we mourn four more Americans who represent the very best of the United States of America. We will not waver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act. And make no mistake, justice will be done.
And where did they get those questioners [like the questions were theirs....] Homeless shelters?!? Drive-up windows?
