Why did Romney go soft on Obama in final debate? Glenn has an idea

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

“I think I know why Mitt did not punch back last night,” Glenn said on the radio show this morning.

“On Libya he gave him a total and complete pass.  I don’t begin to understand it.  On Afghanistan the same thing.  He could have hit him with the actual numbers of the war.”

Glenn said Romney could have also brought the Muslim Brotherhood and his failure to pass a budget. Romney could have (again) talked about Obama’s personal investments in overseas countries like China. He could have brought up G.M.’s outsourcing jobs to China even though Obama and his administration dumped taxpayer money into the company.

But he didn’t

Even FOX News Chris Wallace reached out to a Romney aide to ask why he was being so soft on some of these issues. Wallace explained, “I emailed one of his top aides in the course of the debate, and said what’s behind this strategy? And clearly he was not taking the bait, not getting into fights with Barack Obama. And this official said that it was all Mitt Romney’s idea. This is how he wants to conduct the debate.”

Why did he choose this strategy?

“I strongly believe that Mitt Romney is probably one of the most prayed for men on the planet right now.  I believe Mr. Romney prays on his knees every day.  I know he prays before the debates. I don’t know if it was the right thing, but I believe he is being guided and I believe he believes it’s important to be less contentious. It may be he’s doing what the Lord wants him to do right now.  A lot of people that are conservatives and who have been walking down this road for a long time, we wanted him to eviscerate the President last night – metaphorically speaking.  But our ways aren’t necessarily His ways.  And I hope and pray and believe that Mitt Romney is trying to seek out His way,” Glenn said.

“We are now 14 days away.  In two weeks’ time America goes to vote for the next President of the United States.  In two weeks’ time we go to a polling booth.  We close the curtain (along with the dead people that voted in the other booth), and we choose and the path couldn’t be clearer.  It just couldn’t be clearer.”

“ Last night you saw somebody who took the stage that appeared to me to be George Washington.  Now a guy who I don’t necessarily agree with.  It’s going to be — I hope Romney understands that just because we vote for him doesn’t mean we agree with him on everything.  And just because we may stand against him on certain policies doesn’t mean we hate him.  We just believe in principles and some of the things that he said last night I don’t agree with.  At all.  But that’s where he is.  And I think that the American people have a very, very clear choice.”

“Mitt Romney is trying to do the right thing, and trying to be an honorable man, which I haven’t seen in Washington in a long, long time.  And he made a conscious choice.  I think he could have eviscerated him last night but he didn’t.  I don’t know why.  I think you saw last night for those with eyes and ears, you saw somebody who’s model may be George Washington or Abraham Lincoln, and another who’s model was Saul Alinsky .”

“The question, the only one that remains is, are we more Washington or more Alinsky now.  We decide in 14 days.”

    Mr. Romney spoke the truth when he said during the debate that Obama never visited Israel.
    Obama said he did… but what Romney had in mind, and so should you, was that as President, Obama never visited Israel but he did visit neighboring Islamic states and even kissed the ring of the Saudi king, The Protector of Islam. That sent a very strong message throughout the Islamic world. A bad message for Israel.A bad message for real peace.

    Not just because women don’t want war,but because there are many men on the fence who don’t want us running around the world searching for dragons to destroy.  I am sick of nation building except for this one.  Obama is dead wrong on how to do that, I just hope Romney is.

    Glenn this may answer part of the questions you have asked:

    People wanted, expected, Romney to go for the throat over the matter of Benghazi and when the blood did not come, declared the debate and the election to be over then and there.

    What many failed to see, and did not understand until Romney started hammering home on other subjects – hard hammering – is the strategy he played out. In debate two, his references to Libya caused Team Obama to prepare for an expected blow-out confrontation on the matter, and Obama could not get Romney to rise to the bait.

    Obama sought a decisive tactical victory, and thus fell into Romneys trap. Caught off guard and shaken, Obama had no effective defense to the truth given by Romney on so many matters, such as the apology tour and Russia.

    In the end, Obama showed himself again to be a naricissist, petulant, arrogant, and angry. His final defeat came with the statement of “America is ME.’

    Sorry Mr President you are not America, you are not a god, nor a king, it is all of the people of our great nation who are America. ALL of us.

    In the end, I feel that Romney was inspired by God to show a higher purpose and calling than just eviseration of the President. Romney again demonstrated with class and style a truth:

    He is the President we need for these times and these challenges we face now and in the coming years.

  • http://www.artinphoenix.com/gallery/grimm snowleopard (cat folk gallery)

    I have to agree with you on the no more nation building. If our nation does have to go to war after being attacked, or to rescue fellow Americans then we do it the old fashioned way – overwhelming and decisive force, get the job done the quickest possible and then get back home.

    I think that when the next nation to attack us was destroyed 80% and not rebuilt, it would send a message around the world.

  • Kevin Sullivan

    I can of two things. He did not want to be contentious and the fact that Obama just lies and does not answer questions. He let Obama not answer questions, he let Obama to attack him and instilled in the minds of independents that attacking Romney is the Obama foreign policy.

    cnn titles “Debate: Was Obama too hard on Romney?” and goes on to say “the final debate saw each man play a different game. Mitt Romney came to float like a butterfly, while President Obama came to sting like a bee.” – I think that was a good tactic on Romneys part…

    I think that by glancing over Libya, Romney denied the president an opportunity to explain away his administration’s mixed messages and mistakes.

    At American Thinker, “The Real Reality Check”:

    …Whatever dissatisfaction I might feel about not hearing the rock
    bottom truths on everything from the Arab Spring to Benghazi, to the
    Cairo speech, and all the way to the impossibility of negotiating Iran
    out of its genocidal nuclear ambitions, the fact is that Mitt Romney,
    slammed with a narrow defeat on mainstream scorecards and dismissed as a
    total flop by the Obama camp, would have been soaked in boiling oil if
    he had gone any further into the harsh realities left at the door of the
    debating studio like guns outside the saloon.

    I think he was able to stay above the fray and let you, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh and even non-conservative pundits get the message out about Libya, etc.  The fact checkers today have brought out the ‘apology tour’, the Libya situation and other debacles of the Obama presidency. He doesn’t have the same apologist surrogates in the mainstream media, but by taking a high road he allowed them to bring these things out as they asked the question, “why didn’t Romney bring up…”

    When are saw this article on my newsfeed, I thought maybe you were thinking the same thing I was thinking but you weren’t. I feel that maybe Romney backed off last night and put forth a more passive-aggressive demeanor on foreign policy last night because Romney is looking for the undecided votes and the staunch, Ron Paul conservatives who refuse to vote for him (until maybe last night)… The Ron Paul supporters are isolationists and want out of the war and issues around the world just as much as the Left does. So by not acting like a “warmonger” as the Left has painted him, he may have won over some of the Ron Paul voters to come out and vote for him that weren’t planning on doing so before last night’s debate.

    Inspired by what now? This is funny. MainStream Media may root for Obama but they called out his defeat in the first debate. You right wing guys on the other hand, are a different story. Your guy cowers, hugs his opponent, desperately agrees with his opponent, and loses the debate because he is inspired by God, wow, just wow. 

    What was the point of the debate if Romney just agreed with everything Obama said? That was God inspired? LOL.

    Glen, There is an old saying.. give a man enough rope they will hang themselves. We got great lines from the president, like the Navy does not need boats because of boats, The exit stratigy with Iraq. The bankruptcy opinion of Romney. All verifiable All lies, and the public knows it. 

    Obama has no plans moving forward, and Mit pointed it out by telling him that attacking him was not a policy. Barry fed into it hook line and sinker.

    I would not have simply gone for the jugular over Benghazi, I would’ve pulled out the spine over all the cover up in Fast and Furious, in the Honduras scandal, the Selective Service and Social Security frauds, every single thing Eric Holder has on his hands, the 16 murdered children, the Ken Trentadue case, Janet Napolitano conspiring with the SPLC to label anyone the SPLC disagrees with as a terrorist, the destructive effects of pretending DADT is no longer the law, the born-live babies Obama killed, the “We Are All Osamas” rants from Benghazi and Cairo, and then I would’ve gone for the spleen on Solyndra.

    And I would’ve cherry tapped what was left using the birth certificate issue.

    Clearly, Romney is a much more patient man.

    If you have the opinion, in the mainstream press, that Obama is “stronger” on foreign policy while Romney is stronger on the economy and Romney basically agrees with most of the decisions of the perceived “stronger” candidate, then you have the best of both worlds. That’s quite a strategy. I think he also got to sound less angry and more presidential to boot.

    I think whether he “won” this debate or not, he is preceived as a heavyweight contender while the other side was busy painting him as a radical warmonger like George W. Bush and Dick Chaney and you can obviously see that will not stick anymore after last night.

    So true – even Jesus said “with loving kindness have I drawn thee…” meaning to have you as my ally I must be humble and kind and gentle. It does not mean I am weak or ignorant, contrary, be wise and treat others as you would like to be treated.  He scored with the women in showing dignity in adversity, and remaining calm during the storm. He truly exemplifies and personifies a true leader, the NEXT president of the United States.

    As a conservative, I’m very disappointed with Romney last
    night.

    Romney failed to mention Obama’s failure of open and honest
    government where he lied and let his administration lie to the American public
    about the fiasco in Libya. Romney should have said “If I had made such a
    blunder in providing security and my ambassador been murdered in a terrorist
    attack, I would have been upfront with the American people and told you the
    truth from the beginning.”

    Romney failed to mention all the security breeches the Obama
    Administration has made so they could try to score political points, I.e.,
    leaking bin Laden attack details, Seal Team 6 details, etc.

    An issue I don’t agree with Romney is on his claiming China
    is a currency manipulator. The US is printing money at the rate of $40 billion
    / month. We’re debasing our currency much more than China.

    Romney could have mentioned that America’s proven and
    estimated oil reserves are higher now than 20 years ago. And that by slipping
    the bonds of Middle East dependency we could reduce the state funding of
    terrorism. Obama has blocked considerable US federal land oil drilling.

    Romney could have mentioned that Iran has threatened to
    destroy America, not just Israel; that Russia really does want to recreate an
    empire; that China is undercutting America at every step even though it has its
    own financial, population, and environmental problems; that Canada doubts
    America is as solid an economic ally as they previously thought because of what
    Obama did to them on Keystone; and Mexico is run by drug cartels.

    Romney could have defended America against the Law of the Sea Treaty, the UN Gun Law, the UN Internet Tax, and the UN banking tax.

    Romney could have mentioned the UN claims the food-to-fuel program so coveted by Obama has forced hundreds of millions into starvation.

    Romney was too nice last night.

    Yes Glenn.  Romney just let Obama babble on and on and condemn himself with his own words/attacks on Romney. We don’t need Romney to hammer him on Libya when the truth of what he said and did is all there for us to see.  All the tapes of him on all the entertainment shows and Obama’s unfortunate choice of words to describe the 9/11/12 attack: “Bump in the road”, “Not Optimal”, etc.  Romney just gave Obama all the rope he needed.  And I believe that God is answering my prayer that Romney be guided by HIM.

    In all honesty I have grown tired of the fighting….  and it seemed to me that  Gov. Romney is a man of class who just won’t get into a cat fight….  we will leave the cat fight for the pussy in charge.   Mr Obama has shown himself to be classless, nothing more than a street waif trying to pretend to be a man of class an distinction…  Class is inbred it is a matter of honor and self respect…  Obama-0….Romney- nothing but class.   The traditional values that Mr Romney has shown  is what people of the US seek in their own lives. and want to emulate…   we don’t however wish to emulate a drug addict loser who can’t even salute properly let alone salute the flag or recite the pledge of allegiance…  well I will admit a group of trailer trash liberal treehugging dope smokers may want to emulate mr Obama, but God can only know why.  They seem to find his childish lack of respect actions as COOL!   these are the children of those who like JFK  a man who for the most part had class well with the exception of his indiscretions with women of lessor values..  Point Being  We the people that Love the United States Of America have had it with games , lies, mis-use and abuse of power, and we want the garbage out!   May God ….Not Allah Bless  America….  and may all of you vote wisely to save this wonderful Country!

    I  beleive you are right Glen. I loved it when Mitt Romney said that he has clear eyes and will not wear rose colored glasses. Clear eyes and a true heart. I beleive this is what Mitt Romney has and that he is seeking and following the will of GOD. Instead of praying for Mitt Romney to be our next President I have been praying for whichever man is truely seeking the will of God and what is best for our country to be strenghthen and assisted in getting his message across in a clear and precise way. I beleive GOD does hear all of our prayers but We must trust him in all things; even if we don’t agree or understand.  If Barak Obama is to be our president for 4 more years,  even though we don’t like it then that is what it will be. We have to use our blessing of free will to do what we can to vote him out and leave the outcome in GODs hands. From what we can see and know; Mitt Romney seems to be the man that we need to move us into a better place and I pray that we are right. Ultimately we are saved and blessed by GOD and not by man. We must have faith. :)

    I totally agree with Snowleopard, and would like to add this. When Romney did not allow the left to see or hear Romney acting as a warmonger, he left one simple thing to base the election on—and that is the economy. It is a circular strategy. He did enough to challenge the fraud, but not enough to be seen as a crazy right-winger. He forced the debate back onto his terms: jobs, national stature, and jobs. I originally was for Newt as he has a superb ‘backhand”. But last night, I fell for Mitt’s soft backhand. He did enough. I now believe that he is better than I thought, that he is Led, and he has the possibility to be a great President. He will do the right things as long as he knows the right things to do. Whether he follows the Constitution closely, I am not sure, but I am more impressed than ever with him.

    This election is going to be about THE ECONOMY, STUPID!  Mitt Romney had to bring the Debate back to his area of his expertise, even though he is very well versed on Foreign Policy.  He did everything right.  He proved to Independents that he is not another “Bush War Monger,” and he had to be Presidential; solid, calm, on point and LEADING the Debate.  He accomplished everything he had to do.  He will be our 45th President!

    Comrade Obozo tried everything to “shake” Mitt and the Governor didn’t bite.  Mitt was the clear winner, according to many Battleground Focus Groups.

    Glenn, when I pray as an adult, I pray a different prayer than I did as a child.  I pray now for God’s will, not mine.  I, too, was very aware when I was praying last night before the debate how many people were doing the same, as well as Mitt and Ann and their families, and Paul and Jana and their families.  I cannot begin to predict, understand, expect to know God’s will.  It is not for me to know.  What I saw last night was what I just had faith was God’s will.    And upon waking and praying this morning, I began to realize how beautiful it really was.  This incumbent has the press on his side.  Mitt would undoubtedly have been raked over the coals for “politicizing” Benghazi.  On Egypt, he did not say that quote, we are in bed with the Muslim Brotherhood.  and I believe the reason is that this is now a sitting head of state and would have been eviscerated by the press for that one, too.  But he did say, if we go in and remove a dictator (paraphrasing) we must know what government will replace it.  I think that’s all he needed to say.  As for the rest, by his calm and cool and non-attack mode, he actually highlighted the incumbent’s ugly, ugly side.  I am well pleased.

    Ever notice that the press is talking more about Libya now than ever before?   That could well have been Mitt’s plan all along and obama’s Apology Tour enhances obama’s failures in National Defense.  obama has done more to advance the terrorist movement in those countries than he has to help America and to give him another four years would be playing right into his hands.  We can take a couple of hours out of our day come November 6th to vote this unknown out of Our White House.  I believe that not to vote, is a threat to Our National Defense and Our FREEDOM!

    What an excellent explanation, I agree. What Romney showed was his true charator of being a statesman and a polished professional. Obama was not ready for anything else but the Benghazi issue and did not prep for other issues to the degree Romeny sucked him into. Obama is all about himself, he kept repeating; me, or I and never his team. Obama is all about himself, like a king. Romeny is a man of faith, a former Pastor for 10 years that he rarely brings up. I believe we can all trust Mitt Romney as our President, and when elected he has the opportunity to be the next Ronald Regan and make all American’s proud once again that we are the best country in the world, and will appologize to no one!

    I believe Obama wanted to portray Romney as a loose canon who would go to war and push the nuke button at the drop of a hat, but Romney showed great character and would not get goaded into a fight on Obama’s terms. That had to drive Obama crazy. Snowleopard hit the nail on the head. Romney choose the subjects he wanted to argue, and no moderator bailed out Obama.

  • http://www.artinphoenix.com/gallery/grimm snowleopard (cat folk gallery)

    One thing just occured to me with reading these posts: Romney either devised the strategy himself, or he is a man who listens to the counsel of his advisors and makes his mind up then.

    The strategy – of his own or a admixture with others input shows he is the right man we need.

    I do know one thing from these debates, and in hindsight looking back at his campaign strategy from the beginning of his run to be the Republican nominee.

    The leaders of Russia and China, masters of Grand Strategy, will respect him as a adversary to be dealt with cautiously.

    The book Art of War by Sun-Tzu speaks of a leader and commander who knows himself and his enemy will be victorious. He also speaks in the book of the best way to defeat an opponent is to defeat his strategy.

    With Obama this was easy – keep Obama focused on the character attacks of Romney, keep him offguard, unbalanced, and emotionally fixated with dealing a ‘knockout blow’ tactically while he ignored the campaign as a whole.

    Again, Romney has played Obama as a master fiddler does his fiddle for some time. My respect for the man Romney has gone up a few more notches.

    I will NEVER vote for a candidate that approves of the murder of children, whether they be in the mother’s womb or late term. Obama is a Marxist, anti-American hating, Muslim.

    I fasted and prayed for Romney before the debate and although I wanted him to defend himself more from the attacks, especially at the beginning when Obama interrupted so rudely as soon as he opened his mouth, as the debate went on, I realized that I was feeling admiration for Romney and disgust for Obama, despite the fact that Romney didn’t use an aggressive approach.  He used a tactic I used to use with my children when they would try to start arguments, staying calm and refusing to engage with them until they were civil. By ignoring Obama’s attacks, he deflated them. I held my breath as I listened to the responses to the debate afterwards, hoping others would see it.  It seems that it actually worked because the main feedback seemed to be that Romney appeared to be the grownup in the room.  When I  went back to the debate later to evaluate content I realized also that Romney got in several “attacks” on Obama’s presidency and made some great points without creating a battle.

    I had a friend comment to me today that she was very impressed with the fact that Romney did not allow Obama to push him into another yelling “grade school yard” fight. She was very impressed with his self control and that may have been the deciding for her to vote Romney.

    As one who prays on my knees for our nation and specifically that Romney be inspired and guided in his words and actions, I believe that Glenn has hit it exactly on the head.  Romney showed in the first debate that he could hand Obama his head any time without much effort.  This time, rather than complete the beatdown, he honestly held back, let the liar lie (knowing that anybody with eyes saw and ears heard) and remained as one might say, Presidential.  Nobody except the committed Obamaphiles think Obama won that debate.  Histrionics and repetition, attacks and derision, pettiness, nastiness, and vanity were the hallmarks of Obama during that meet.  
    And the line the liberals are going to love, about horses and bayonets, and boats that go underwater……  The military is having a FIELD DAY with that.  Seems we use MORE bayonets now than we did before.   Still use lots of horses.   Had submarines in the Civil War….. I can feel the spoofs coming, and none of them are going to favor the anointed one.  Obama thought that is was his best ever zinger.  Fact was, he sounded nasty, snarky, and downright bitchy while he rattled off that line.  Gonna fly like a boomerang…….

    Sorry Glenn, this will turn out to be a bad move on Romney’s part.  One cannot get a cockroach to scatter by shining the light of Beauty on an evil man.  Romney can look as Presidential as he wants.  And he did succeed at that during the debate.  But the cockroach is still there coming up with his next evil scheme.  Only the light of Truth would have caused him to scatter. He may have won over a few amoral undecideds.  But he did not pull ahead because of this debate unless he really believes that 47% of the American people and then some are too amoral or immoral to be swayed by a moral foreign policy.  Yes, it may be a risk to make the point that POTUS is an evil man.  But if you want the guidance of Divine Providence, Truth not Beauty wins out over evil.

    I too was annoyed at Romneys passivity. Then I read the MSM take on the debate. Brian Wlliams and Chris Mathews and the rest of the usual suspects were touting Obamas great victory. (I thought it a tie myself). Romney looked calm, assured, like a leader of men. Obama was sharp, angry, aggressive. If Romney had taken the offensive, it’s ALL the MSM would be talking about. Romney was (IMHO) denying the enemedia ammunition. And his one attack, on Israel and the Appology Tour was on target. Without a major gaff by Obama, Romney had no chance of a knockot like Denver. His goal was to neutralize the MSM. I think he succeeded.

    When you are in the lead and this is the last lap,,you don’t wreck,,you try to survive with your lead and i think he did that. He can’t win if the last three weeks he is trying to defend some obscure argument that came up during a debate.

    Romney was perfect.  He looked very Presidential and Obama looke like an angry black man.

    Mitt Romney is too professional to call out the Liar-in-Chief on every falsehood – a tactic called “giving him some more rope” – and Obama told some (more) real whoppers last night;

    Obama certainly did go on an apology tour to the middle east (as everybody knows).
    Obama by action and inaction gave Egypt and Libya to the Moslem Brotherhood.
    Obama’s “strategy” resulted in the Libya diplomatic mission attack and murders.
    Obama by inaction and silence left Iran in the Islamic Regime’s hands.
    Obama has done jack about China’s currency fraud and bad debts.
    Obama has backed down to Russia.
    Obama has done jack about Syria.
    Obama’s interference in our military forces has weakened them.
    Obama’s GM bailout ripped-off you and me and the GM bond holders to benefit the UAW.

    Mitt Romney won last night’s debate by letting Obama lie about his record, promise more government bloat, continue with “tax the rich” class warfare and propose a future that he (Obama) does not intend to, nor is capable of bringing about.

    My husband and I have prayed for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan everyday for a long time. I missed last nights debate as I was on my way to a church meeting. I met my husband there at the service,. The entire drive to church I prayed for Mitt and the debate, I prayed God would lead him, he would do what the Father wanted. and he would be seen as good, and honest man. As soon as we got home, I watched Brett Bair, (we had recorded the debate and all the news that followed). I felt Governor Romney did just perfect. Obama made a utter fool of himself, he was childish, and insulting. I am a woman, and believe me, Obama did not score any points with us!This nation needs to get down on it’s knees, before the God of the universe and ask His forgiveness for turning our backs on Him.

    If this was what motivated Romney, then I can respect it, but I don;t think it was the most effective way to try to win the election.  McCain campaigned like a gentleman, and look where it got him.  And we all lose if Obama gets a second term.

    Praying men have a different view then the rest of us.  God said, we are in the world, not of the world.  I do believe that Romney’s forum came from spending time on his knees and God directing him.  I’m a praying person and when I ask God to heal our land, and get rid of the deception and lies that are polluting it, I have to rest on God that he directed Romney’s path. There for, Romney will win by a good margin due to God’s word that says, humble yourselves, pray, confess your sins, then will I hear from you, and heal your land.  We have to rest in what God says, and rejoice in it.  Walk in victory confessing the truth and know He is faithful to His children.  God Bless

    There as a moderator always shutting Mitt Romney down when he tried to rebut Obama’s points. He did get under Obama’s skin and it showed. Mitt got to the moderator because late in the debate the moderator called Osama bin Laden , Obama bin Laden. I almost fell to the floor. So subconsciously what do you think this means? I think ven the liberal media knows Obama has done more for our enemies than our Allies.

  • http://mudpuddlebunny.wordpress.com/ MudPuddleBunny

    I agree with Glenn and a few others on here.  I don’t agree that this last debate was a tie and I don’t agree that Romney seemed nervous etc.

    I believe that Romney showed his character.  He is a moral and praying man. You love those that despise you, you don’t go tit for tat. Yes he could have taken Obama on and he could have hit him hard with many issues, but he didn’t.

    We don’t need another leader that is all about cutting the throat of an opponent. We don’t need another blood-thirsty all about me me me leader. We need a leader with the character and morality and god fearing, on-your-knees-praying leader.  We need another George Washington or Abraham Lincoln.

    You cannot be a true leader when you’re only concern is cutting down your opposition. If you want peace, you have to make peace, you have to stick with the facts and stick with a plan, God’s plan.  You have to stay focused on the issue at hand and I believe Romney did such that.

    I don’t want to see tit for tat and tearing each other down.  I don’t want to see a battle, Obama takes a hit and Romney returns, etc.  I want to hear hope, I want to hear we can fix this together. You cannot fix it if you’re at each others throats. Sure he could have cut him down, but a liar will always be a liar. Obama tried to set him up and he didn’t fall for it. Obama wanted him and was preparing for him to cut him down. They wanted to use that negative against him.  They wanted him to loose control of his composer and just rip him apart, but that isn’t who Romney is. He has character and leadership.

    You can agree to diagree and move on.  You can shake hands and still work together for the common good.  You can compromise. Again, if you want peace you make peace. You be the bigger man and move on. You don’t attack when attacked. You keep focused and you pray.

    I believe Romney was “called” to run for President and he is being lead by God.

    Actually, I was very impressed with what he said last night.  He did his homework.  He not only talked about Iran and their on going threat but also how their economy is going down the toilet and to still strangle them harder on sanctions. He talked about Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Mali, and Egypt, and also talked about having his eye on Russia and North Korea; and how he didn’t like what happened in Poland.  On trade I glad to see that his vision isn’t just China but doing more trade with Latin America.  I stand firmly behind what he said about using diplomacy in Syria and not rushing in with our Troops.  I did like how he did recognize the good things the Obama Administration has done. . .that showed his character and the professional he is.  He look relaxed, in control, and didn’t interrupt the President while he was talking.  (Unlike what the President did to him.)  As for the President he looked like he drank too many cups of coffee and was about to jump out of his seat.  I could tell by the Presidents facial expressions this debate was not going down the avenue he thought it would.  He was ready to throw out some zingers and Romney didn’t give him the openings to use them.  The one zinger he did throw out has come back to bite him.  Yes, our military does use bayonets and yes we do use horses too.  I found it interesting that the President continued to say that our military has not asked for more money!  LOL!!!  Really?  Then why does the Navy say they need more ships and just who asked for them? Overall, I think he did a good job.

    I’ve thought a lot about the debate last night.  And I was one AT FIRST that really thought Mitt had dropped the ball.  But as it progressed and throughout today it’s been very clear to me that he had a plan, he stuck to the plan, and he never allowed the adversary (Obama) to take him down a road to nowhere.  I believe it was effective, I believe that good people everywhere saw a clear difference… a president who was condescending, immature, disrespectful and has nothing to offer America.  Then we saw a mature, presidential man who was factual, respectful, a deeply caring man who said simply “I will work” for the American people and for the America I love.  A clear choice if you look where we’ve been and what Obama is offering for four more years.  I am one who was on my knees many times yesterday – and I know I was not alone!  But most important – I know the man, Mitt Romney, was on his knees too.  Not just yesterday – but everyday.

    Maybe he didn’t want to appear to be politicizing the issue…. I don’t know…. All I know is  that I prayed before the debate for him and asked God to just be at his side…. I think  He was…. Romney’s thoughts came across as more “thoughtful,”  in contrast to an amazingly violent world we are living in.. His calmness made me feel calmer and safer….. HIs intelligence  and thoughtfulness on  each issue came through….Romney also told Obama, that attacking him was not a plan… So it was clear, Romney wasn’t going to  unload all barrels on him either….Maybe he thought this issue on  nuclear war and the state of the world was so serious, that it  did not warrant  attacking each other, but rather simply laying out your plan, and your feelings on this issue.  In other words, it was not about politics last night to Romney.. It was about a  far more serious serious subject—That of our safety  from not only putting our soldiers i more wars, but that of nuclear war.

    Mr. Glenn Beck, Mitt Romney hit it out of the park. He stayed focused and took obama to task on every point he lied about. You wanted a stern and aggressive attack on Obama. It would have played into Obama’s hand. In the end Mitt Romney looked like the incumbent President and Obama the inexperienced candidate. Mitt Romney showed America that Obama is a liar and incompetent leader( never heard of leading from behind ). I was waiting for the zingers to come left and right but Mitt didn’t take the high road. He took the Presidential road. Sometimes us conservatives try to impose how we would handle things. Mitt Romney is what we need. A calm focused leader who knows how to succeed.

    I am so excited to read about all the people who, like me, are praying for Gov. Romney and Rep. Ryan.  Let us continue to pray, asking that these two men be given the words and direction to win this election.  We must pray, and pray, and pray some more.  And please urge your family and friends to pray.  May our Lord raise up for this country morally and spiritually strong men and women who will lead us away from the culture of death and destructon and who will lead us towards a culture of life and Light.
          Besides seeking the women’s vote, do you think Gov. Romney was also seeking the support of the Ron Paul people?  And one more thing, what do you think the President meant when talking about his decision to kill Osama Bin Laden he said, “Even my current Vice President…”  Current?  Hmmmmmmmm.

  • http://mudpuddlebunny.wordpress.com/ MudPuddleBunny

     Yes, I agree that Obama was trying to get to Romney, but Romney never gave in. I also agree that this irritated Obama.  Romney showed his character, who is really is and what he stands for.

    Obama was a viper just waiting for that one opportunity to strike and never got it.

    I applaud Romney. I didn’t want to see more mud slinging. I’m so sick of politicians doing that. I don’t care what the opponent does or says, I don’t care about their personal lives, etc. I don’t care.

    What I do care about is their values and their moral character. What I do care about is what they will do for us and how.  What I do care about is are they Godly and do they pray on their knees and are they guided by God. Period.

  • http://mudpuddlebunny.wordpress.com/ MudPuddleBunny

    That was beautifully said. “out of our hearts, our mouths speak”.

    Romney has a good heart and a good character. His words were positive and encouraging. Sending hope.

    Obama was nothing more than one lie after another. Attacking Romney.  I believe this confounded Obama and he had no idea how to handle him; he is so used to mud slinging and attacking, he can’t figure out someone who is actually a good person that prays. Amazing, right?

    Can you see the obvious difference in the two?

I’ve been praying for him as well, to show the American people his heart and his character, to show who he really is … its working and its showing, God is with this man.

    Good comments Glenn.  I know I as well as others in our tea party meeting last night prayed openly in front of each other for our country and for Mitt. We prayed God would give him the wisdom and the right words to say.  You are right, God’s ways are not our ways and if we trust God to answer our prayers we need to sit back and listen and look for the answer.  Perhaps he answered us just fine last night.  We know that Mitt made no enemies and made no gaffes.  Our continual prayer is that America will see the light and make the right choice for President. 

    Mitt is not perfect, but I believe he is God-fearing and that is who we need at this time in America.

    I think he played it smart because anything and everything he says will be held against him during his first term and used to attack him in his re-election bid. He has this already wrapped up, given that everyone shows up to vote, so he doesn’t need to provide ammunition for his future opposition candidate and the main stream media outlets that are eager and more than happy to shred him a new one. Foreign policy is a highly reflective subject, we have no control of the policy of other sovereign nations which makes any statements Romney made in the debates an obsolete and devastating policy decision to stand by, especially if tossed under the rigorous and, oftentimes, cynical campaign advertisement editing process. A timeline is never provided to contrast the policy change and the reasons for their changes. Foreign policy is ever changing and highly dependent upon the circumstances, cause and effect. Sometimes good, sometimes bad as we have witnessed over the past two decades.

    Again, we need to make it imperative that we get to the voting booths and vote. I would like to see the popular vote be taken in addition to the electoral vote because if either one of those statistics fall into the category of acceptable to the leftist movement, that is the one they claim is the only acceptable category, we have seen it take place in the past. They want to make the rules as they go. We can not allow them to make the rules, if we do, they win every time. Get out and vote. God forbid it, but I don’t care if you have contracted the deadly menangitis outbreak, drag yourself there or have someone grab your one good arm and drag you there.

    Nothing could be a bigger disaster than the Marxist we have n the WhiteHouse now.Are you aware that his mother and his grandparents were Marxists? Are you aware that his mentor was Frank Marshall Davis….a card carrying communist.?Obama sat in his home through his youth and was schooled in hate for America and its capitalist economic system. Obama admits in his books that he always sought  out the radicals in his college years.  Obama sat in Reverend  Wright’s church of hate for twenty years.  Obama is a fraud who pretends to be a Christian for r political reasons.

    There is such a thing as righteous anger.  You don’t have to tear anybody down. You just speak the truth and the truth does its job.  I think this was poor decision on Romney’s part.  I don’t want a nice guy right now.  Obama and Biden don’t care how they tear down their opponent, and they don’t even have righteousness on their side.  Bad move by Romney.

    Romney’s demeanor did make him look a lot more Presidential; confident, self assured, relaxed, while Obummer had a look in his eyes like a snake in the grass or a vulture on a phone pole, embattled, argumentative, belligerent and sarcastic. Obama gave it all he had, but darn, he just didn’t have enough. Probably the story of his life. Probably why he lies so much as well.
    In viewing all of the debates, I really feel that Obummer has nothing but contempt for Romney.
    Romney just makes Obama look small be letting him be himself, and that in itself grates on him to no end. I think they call it an inferiority complex !!!!

    Glenn, I couldn’t agree more.  All of us were hoping (and praying) that Romney go after Obama because our sensibilities were attacked as Americans when we found out 4 of our fellow citizens died unnecessarily. I’m sure Gov. Romney’s sensibilities were shaken as well.  We all wanted Romney to go after Obama for some answers, mainly because we watch the mainstream media give Obama a pass on the clear path Obama has taken to misguide us with some smoke and mirrors about an obscure video. Obama failed to protect those brave men when they were begging for help. How proud I am that they lasted 7 hours.  With that in mind, I believe our prayers for Romney worked. I believe Romney got the message, from God, leading him to the strategy he took last night, which was the “high road”. 

    One of the best advice I have ever received has been this: When someone attacks you falsely,  respond with, “I’m sorry you feel that way”.  If someone calls you a name, you can’t respond with “I am not”.  All this does is create a “yes you are”, “no I’m not” agrument.  It goes nowhere.  When you respond with “I’m sorry you feel that way”, it does not engage the attacker. 

    I think this is what Romney’s strategey was last night.  Taking the high road, demonstrated to America how low Obama will go. (condescending, trite, petty).  It made him more presidential than Obama.

    I’m glad Romney didn’t stoop to the low level that Obama & Biden do in debates.  I thought Obama looked & acted like he was the candidate instead of the President & Romney acted & looked more Presidential.  We have heard Romney debate these same old things that Obama brought up Monday night.  Yes, we may not see eye-to-eye on everything Romney stands for, but he’s a long ways from what Obama stands for & Romney has my vote

    As a friend of Governor Romney’s, my husband told him last spring, that he believes that God raises up certain people at critical times in history to do special things, and Mitt was raised up for this time in history.  While reading Glen’s assessment it struck me again, that my husband is indeed correct.

    What you saw was the devil trying to do battle with God.  No, Romney is not God, but God was on that debate and the devil knew it. The devil always tries to berate with a smile. Sound familiar?  Romeomney is a good man and it showed. He was taller and brighter than the man who shared the stage with him.  The moderator wasn’t a dummy either. He knew which man appeared the brightest and the man with the most information to hand to the public. That would be Romney.   The president just handed out the same old same old junk we are tired of listening to after nearly 4 years.  Talk about old stuff, the president has nothing to say except go backwards and blame , blame , blame .   He is going nowhere because he hasn’t proved to America that he wants US to go somewhere.  Americans want a president who it taking US somewhere.  Romney is taking us to that somewhere where Americans can be proud and safe. Knowing we have a man in office that puts US before other countries is refreshing..  Go with Romney.  A True Patriot, true to America, and definitely our next president of the USA and US.

    Your thinking pretty much parallels mine on this, snowleopard.  I thought Obama was schooled and prepared to deal with the Libyan issue in some way.  When Romney didn’t engage him on it, I believe Obama was frustrated and angry.  That’s what came across during the rest of the debate.  He had all that adrenalyn with nowhere to use it.  Thus, he came across as a petulant adolescent as evidenced by his snarky response about the size of the navy, the comment about horses and baynets; his arrogant and condescending description of aircraft carriers where we can land planes and boats that can go underwater.  That behavior didn’t make Romney look bad; rather, it diminished Obama.

    Romney could have gone for the jugular, but he is in wisdom chose not to because it would`ve looked cut-throat and vicious. Romney wanted to look and sound like a man who has his head together and I can`t blame him for that. Diplomacy goes a long way when confronting your enemies…but be ready to back it up with force if necessary and that was the picture that was shown. Obama on the other hand couldn`t control his glaring glances and condescending attitude and made him look liek he was short tempered and arrogant ( which he is)

    Romney was on stage with a higher power than this president has. The de vil acts in strange ways throwing out digs and expecting a fight. But Romney is bigger than the president
    and brighter. The higher power he claims, which I do too, is the Decider. The de vil won’t win because Americans know the difference between a good man and a bully. This president is a bully. Throws out remarks when he is defeated at a good debate.
    We have had enough of his bullying tactics. It may work for those who take his hand outs,
    but not for those of us who is stealing from to give those hand outs.  We see his slight of hand and we don’t like it.

    Romney was attempting to illustrate exactly why Obama has been such a failure at home and abroad.  He reminded Obama at least twice that his attacks were not providing Americans with productive policy statements that would help Americans know where he stood.  Romney has explained several times how he has the experience to reach across the isle and get things done.  Romney showed last night he has the temperament not to get ruffled and defensive over personal attacks, can focus on what needs to get done, and is willing to concede and extend offers of agreement in an effort to narrow down where important differences lie and issues can be resolved.  Romney showed by example that he can be a mediator at home and abroad, while maintaining the respect and dignity of being a leader and giving the necessary deference to another leader.  I hope Romney’s example last night is not lost in the divisiveness that has been generated over the last four years  If Americans can see Romney for who he is, great things can happen.

    Actually, I think Romney played this out well. When asked, most Americans are concerned about the economy. Instead of hitting the foreign affairs, Romney kept bringing it back to the economy. He was hitting Obamaoand the American people with a tuning fork. It was a calculated move that probably worked perfectly. It is difficult for people to focus on foreign affairs as they are losing their homes, can’t find a job and are unsure where their next meal is coming from. Romney hit that OFTEN. Quite a smart move on his part, since someone from the Romney camp said it was ALL his idea.

    I think we were ALL waiting for Mr. Romney to trounce Obama, and at first I too was angry and frustrated that he didn’t take advantage of some of the obvious openings which Obama was presenting to him.  On hindsight (always 20-20!) I believe that Mr. Romney was demonstrating a good, solid ”business” approach, which is : “We have a bad situation.  We can figure out where the faults and the blame lie later, there’ll be plenty of time for that.  But how are we going to FIX the problem NOW?”  Would pouncing on Obama have brought back the four dead Americans?  Mr. Romney MUST have realized that Obama was spending the entire week practicing his “spin” on the Libya situation; and by NOT bringing it up he probably eliminated 90% of Obama’s preparations.  I wonder if he plays chess?
    He let Obama eviscerate himself!

    Most posts here are coming from people who saw the truth during the debate. The problem is that the moderator did everything he could to divert Obama from the real issues that Romney put forth. One could clearly see in the Obama responses how confused he was, trying to compensate from his pre-scripted preparations before the debate. We have to remember the power of the media and its influence on the general public.I think that Romney can achieve great success in the last two weeks of his campaign by exposing some of the points that he didn’t use during the debate.

    Some of the best Business people I know, NEVER, and I mean NEVER, make a short term decision. Its always about the long term. The fact that everyone (liberals and dems, and media) said he didn’t bash the president on Libya proves that he didn’t need to.

    These debates showed the world the type of person Romney is. It may be very gratifying for some that Obama and the Democrats get obliterated in this election (myself included). The problem with that is, when done, how would Romney lead the whole country. How would you get people to understand and get on board with what you want to do with the country if you just demolished them and then rubbed their noses in it.

    Romney made his point in the second debate on Libya. We may have wanted it to go down with a big fat “IN YOUR FACE!!!!!” but none the less, everyone knew the point me was making. Talking about it again would have been spiking the football.

    shouldn’t be a game, shouldn’t tolerate spin, and shouldn’t be apologetic about

    Constitution is literally mocked by elected officials and their appointees!  The department of justice (Holder) openly
    mocks law and Constitution!    To say nothing about the US government empowering
    the Muslim Brotherhood or the Libyan fiasco essentially disqualifies Romney for
    the position of president!   He didn’t
    take the high road – he fell in the ditch!  
    Our leader must be capable of making judgments!

     

    I’m not advocating a
    gutter fight.   Quite the contrary!     Concisely
    state the condition, discern the facts, and judge to decision applicable.    Yes, Obama would jump in the gutter with baseless
    talk over, interruptions, lies, etc.!   
    The opportunity is let him go off, then demand silence and uninterrupted
    time to make the assessments and conclusions.  
    Demand the moderator control Obama, if the moderator can’t, politely and
    forcefully end the debate by walking out!

    I don’t know what all this Obama “won” stuff is anyway. Debates aren’t won on arrogance for the independent and the conservative Democrats that are still there. Our children need to be intellectually armed with the time proven arguments against socialism/communism/fascism.  They have been systemitcally disarmed instead. I home school and when I see the polls, I see 100 years of intellectually disarming our children. Romney simply allowed the “devil” to show himself. Give him enough rope… I think he succeeded. Obama’s arrogance exposed him to be just another Jive Talkin’ punk.. .

    I have to disagree for there is a time to fight and a time to let others hang themselves. Mitt came across as mature and that obama is not worth wasting his time for he just lies. This actually upset obama to the point of becoming childish and stupid and people need to see who has been running this country and he made all understand why we are in the shape we not find ourselves. He went so far as to totally change his view on things that are well documented. Mitt cleaned his clock when he needed to, set him off and let him go. I loved it!

    As a salesman with 30 years of experience, what you saw last night was an experienced salesman taking it to the cocky marketing mgr. I saw this strategy and laughed. It is sales 101. Obama won his other elections on great marketing campaigns. Romney took him completely out of his game plan and forced him to play by his rules. After all, it was Obama a couple of weeks ago that said Romney was just a slick sales person. He set him up from the first debate which made Obama prepare for a fight that he was never going to get. Romney remained in complete control throughout all of the debates.  I guess Forrest Gump was correct, “Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get”.

    Here is my theory about what Mr. Romney DID mention last night.  Of COURSE the Economy and how it’s been on a greased slide, and he mentioned foreclosures, welfare, and food stamps, and how he didn’t want to just cut the food stamp program but rather that people got off food stamps due to having a JOB!  But he ALSO reminded us about a few of Obama’s actions (and inactions) which upset the Nation during Obama’s earlier years, which we had collectively forgotten because of being bashed by so many MORE egregiousness from him!  How he removed the protective shield from Poland.  His apology tour.  His .visiting all the muslim countries and not Israel.

    Obama has been trying the last few days to work a new word into his campaign: “Romnesia”.  Last night Mr. Romney turned that word right back at Obama, and in the calmest, most polite way.  I doubt we’ll be hearing that word anymore!

Obama lies, interrupts, spins stories just like a good ole Alinsky puppet. We all know he is a liar and can’t be trusted. Romney is a classy guy, Obama is a spoiled brat with no manners.  He just hates it when he is called out on this dirty deeds. He thinks no one should be allowed to talked to him the way Romney does.

    Here is the main issue that people should consider relevant in their choice: Is it more important that the candidate empathize with your situation in life, or is it more important that he know how to make your economic situation better, outside of merely giving you money? Has either candidate proven that they know how to either make an economic situation better, or do they have proven results that show real, measurable gains in any effort in the business world or a financial situation? Can the candidate show proven results or only show empathy and his mere desire to change your life? Is he a “doer” or a “dreamer”? Is he a “fixer” or a “proposer”? This isn’t a political choice, it’s a choice involving reality and what you want your life to be like in four years. Both candidates are vastly different in basic political stands, but the bottom line is will they help this country succeed, or are they on an idealogocal crusade? An intelligent person will choose one way and an emotional and selfish person will do the opposite. An ideologue will make political choices, and the realist will make rational ones. Which are you? This isn’t about who you like, it’s about who will do the best job getting this country and it’s economy back on track. If you are an honest, pragmatic person, and not looking for the answers to solve the issues of the ages, you will know how to vote. It’s that simple.

The BIBLE says a liar doesn’t have a place in HEAVEN, so I guess OBAMA will be visiting Osama in HELL! He’s such a pompous and arrogant ass, I would love to see him actually have to own up to all his lies. You know what happens when someone is a chronic liar, they too get caught up in their own deception. Mr. Obama oh what a tangled web you have woven for yourself, remember we all reap what we sow.

    Its called reverse psychology.  Romney knew that obama would be well rehearsed on how to answer questions about benghazi.  Probably to the point he had an earpiece, concealed by makeup in his ear, so someone could tell him what to say.  So Rommey did not dwell on that subject and let obama dig a hole.

    You just saw a world class chess match with Romney about six moves ahead of Obama. Romney has dealt in business deals all his adult career and learned politics at his fathers knee.
    He knew everyone expected him to follow up on Bengazigate,and that obama would have every angle covered so he pulled a great move by not even going there,keeping obama on guard and waiting to spring the trap while he kept coming from different directions not used before.He effectively muted obamas strategy and any damage while frustrating him and hitting from different directions.Obama has been out thought and out maneuvered in every debate.If Candy Crowely hadn’t help blind side him in that debate obama wouldn’t be even in the race.

    “Read and weep – Romney won the presidential debate by looking presidential. Obama had a painful case of Biden’s smile At http://www.telegraph.co.uk/ 

    I read the telegraph article and blog and answered the person who posted it below.
    Gerry Sinclair2:07 AM UTC+1000ZebZ I suspect you and the British Telegraph are right. 
    Followers of either man probably thought their man won, and as we all know it has to be an absolute thrashing like the first debate before any leftist will even talk about a loss, but the 3rd debate was not about point scoring, it was about appearing Presidential and on that score Romney easily won and Obama did not do himself any favours.Leaving the Libyan elephant in the room just sitting there and taking the high ground was a stroke of genius obviously too subtle for the chattering classes, as was turning the debate from foreign policy to Obama’s weakest point, the domestic economy.But the real winning pitch for Romney was not how Democrats,  Republicans and a biased MSM viewed proceedings, but how he appeared to non decided and Independent voters who after all are the ones who will decide this election.Romney could not have put in a better performance as an alternative President for them and on the other hand both in this debate and the last, Obama’s constant harping and  falling back on motherhood statements and positions, and particularly the strange response to an economy requiring immediate remedial action by promoting a long term solution in education reform would have them thinking ‘here we go again’ he is going to ignore what needs to be fixed and waste oxygen on some feel good cause, desirable, but like Obama care, not the number one priority.Starkly reminiscent of the female leader in the UK who was starting inquiries into social inequity causes of the recent rioting, before the fires were put out!Romney has it right, the first and overriding priority is jobs, unless the USA is attacked, everything else at the moment runs second.Any good leader whether in business or Government must be able to effectively priortise, Romney has come across as someone who has no problem doing that which should not be a surprise because otherwise he would not have been so successful, whereas Obama has come across as someone who has great problems doing that, and again given his background, that should not be a surprise either.The clincher for the undecided will probably be that while Romney and Ryan have played the issues, Biden and Obama have played the man.That goes down well the tribalists, but not with the non aligned. Romney’s ‘attacking me is not a policy agenda’ is getting awfully close to Reagan’s ‘there you go again’ – the next fortnight will tell, but if Romney does pull off a victory it will be because he controlled the Presidential image projection, including demeanour under personal attack, so much better.In short in this election, the debates will count, but not for the obvious point scoring reasons, Romney has shrewdly boosted his own image whilst suckering Obama into diminishing his.

    About mid-way through the debate last night, I saw that Romney had a strategy, and wasn’t necessarily losing the debate.  He purposefully remained calm and in the face of the condescending Obama.  Looking back, this was outright genious and I believe divine intervention because Romney consulted with God.  I wanted Romney to nail Obama on the facts of Benghazi.  But after looking back, the truth is working its way out without Romney having to point every detail out.  Romney already showed he can beat up Obama intellectually in a debate.  Now he needed to show he will work with even those he disagrees with to bring them in.

    The world’s on FIRE and America is burning while Obama goes on the View as arm candy? I’ve been praying for the scales to fall off of the eyes of millions of Americans who can not see the real man that is Obama. Indeed, petulance, pettiness and narcissism are NOT characteristics that serve any president well. No matter what LIES President Obama tells and what promises he recycles (how many roads and bridges have we already paid him trillions to NOT build?) Americans have had quite enough of his Hope & Change. We don’t need a playa who slow jams on late night TV as the “Preezy of the United Steezy”… we need a real leader with a strong background in business and a tough work ethic. Time for Obama to tee off… Americans just did.

     The only reason to rebuild a nation is to get the people of that nation on your side.  It worked well with Germany, Italy and Japan after WWII.

    combined with being from the 47% end of the spectrum I almost
    immediately realized that Obama was going to be the victor and  I knew
    that I was watching the end result of everything I saw unfold in my
    little high school, in my little world.  The difference this time was
    that this was now happening not just on the national stage, but the international stage as well.  I had told a
    friend at that time who thought that Hillary Clinton was going to win the
    nomination, that I knew she wouldn’t, not because of Obama, but because I
    believe that the first female to be elected President would not be a
    Hillary type.  Americans are not going to vote for our first female
    President a woman that is a career politician.  I believe that our first
    female President will be a strong woman, strong in her ideals and she will obviously display
    backbone, ex-military or law enforcement type, captain of industry type as a background or baseline to her political career. Anyways
    I’m rambling, back to the point… The end result of the 90′s brought us
    to the 2008 campaign and President Obama.  The party lasted about 2
    years and i believe many would agree the hangover has lasted just about as
    long.  Now that we have sobered up we as a nation have come to the
    realization that we cannot ever again let shame and guilt drive our
    decisions.  
    So, what does this have to do with Romney? 

    I
    laid the previous statement out to make one point,  ”Nothing was
    stopping that train”  Forget it, It’s over, lets deal with the now:
    Mr.
    Romney,  What is wrong with you? I am so pissed at how you are NOT
    running your campaign.  At what you are NOT saying and who you are NOT
    saying it to.  It leaves me with the sad impression that you have
    written us off ,or really, and even more depressing have no idea how to
    speak to your “Hispanic” voters. You do realize that the only thing that
     separates the “Hispanic” voter from the Republican voter is skin
    color?  A huge majority of “Hispanic” voters are Catholics, God fearing
    hard working, proud and honest people that love this country and know
    without a doubt that there is no other nation that compares.  You and
    your party can lock up the elections from the local to the national
    stage by finally inviting and demanding that the “Hispanic” voter come
    home to the party it belongs in.  Give the long overdue boot to the few
    radical nut jobs of you’re party and start speaking not only to us but
    for us.  Obama’s pathetic and insulting last minute pandering has gone
    unanswered by you Mr. Romney.  I have never felt more insulted than when
    I started hearing the rhetoric from the left about voter suppression
    that could affect 10 million “Hispanic” voters.  Are you freaking
    kidding me?? These freaking bobble-head talk drones,pundits,pick your poison, are  going to have the balls
    to go on national television and say to the country that we are not
    going to be able to vote because now you will be required to show
    I.D. !?!?! Trust me when I say if we want to vote we will vote! An extra
    hoop, another form, an additional $20 bucks, a longer ride, whatever.
     Look at our history both in our country of origin and in America.  Do
    we seem like a people easily deterred? 

       
    “You have the platform Mr. Romney, you have the bully pulpitt, you want
    to speak for and represent the 100% of the population.  You want to be
    more than just the President, You want to be MY President.  Well get off
    your rhetorical ass and say something.  The time is now, it’s almost
    perfect to me, the one who has always been patiently, quietly waiting not
    just to be addressed but to be recognized”.

    Stand
    up and make that historical speech  that will rain millions of quiet
    “Thank You’s” at the ballot box and at the same time knock Mr. Obama and
    that fake “we Care About You” liberal media on their ass so hard that
    the election will be over and they will still be asking “What the heck
    just happened?”

    Give me a call if you want
    some advice on what to say. Do not make promises that you cannot or do
    not intend to keep.  Give us hope, REAL hope not Obama hope and more
    importantly recognition.  As Mexicans look north for hope and security
    we need to start looking south for strength and longevity. For our
    futures as opposed to Europe’s future can we start believing in the New,
    New world again? So is it you Mr. Romney or those you surround yourself
    with?  Because somebody is really missing an opportunity not of a
    lifetime but of a generation.  Seriously, Obama is playing checkers and
    you need to make that checkmate move and end this so we can all start flying
    again. thank you

    Me too!! I am also in prayer that God will bless us one more time and prayerfully, we can get our country back to where we need to be.  In the will of God.  Mr. Romney, was a true leader last night and showed it.  Obama is a thug and that is how he presents himself.  He is a bully in the worst way.  I just hope and pray Mr. Romney defeats Obama. I have a funny idea that Obama will do something in order to stay in office – don’t know what but he will do anything to stay in office and finish off America.  He job is not over with, but little does he know that we are a Christian nation and nothing he can do can defeat us!!!  Together we stand strong and will defeat him!!!  God bless us again.

    The local NBC station in Mobile, Alabama, reported tonight that a Halloween store has predicted that Obama will win the election based on the number of Obama Halloween masks sold thus far (60% Obama, 40% Romney).  They say they have been right since 1996.  Now that is a scarrrrrry prediction!!!  More reasons to pray.

    I’m not sure about Romney sometimes. I feel there is a 50/50 chance he may be a Reagan type and just trying to stay away from attacks that are “unbecoming” of a future president. If that’s the case he’d be the first presidential candidate since Reagan worth voting FOR rather than just against the other guy.

    I just say 50/50 because I don’t trust politicians as far as I can throw them. Just hope we GOP don’t get disappointed down the road. That said, what’s MORE IMPORTANT than the presidential race is the SENATE races people. If the GOP gets a solid majority in the Senate it doesn’t matter even if Obummer is reinstated, we can repeal Obamacare (by defunding it) and can achieve any policy result we want.

    So it’s win-win no matter who is president if we win the Senate. I get frustrated when everyone focuses on the presidency, because that only further makes the president position more powerful as everyone puts all their eggs in that basket.

    I thought that just for a fleeting second, when Romney didn’t attack Obama on Benghazi, that Obama looked surprised.  To me I thought I saw a deflation in Obama, because Romney wasn’t going to fall into a planned setup.  Obama then couldn’t continue his strategy in the debate to portray Romney as a warmonger, loose cannon . . . he even tried using words such as reckless (perhaps a scripted answer to be used if Romney had fallen for the setup), because the “reckless” comment wasn’t really fitting the actions of Romney during the debate.  I personally thought the softness was refreshing.  I’m tired of the fighting . . . just talking about what he would do as President was great.  Cudos to Romney . . . somebody’s got to start leading us out of the gridlock and arguments, who better than a true leader and hopefully our next President, Romney.

    I don’t think that it was necessary to hammer on Benghazi. Others not in Romney’s campaign will take care of that. Any veteran can tell you what happened based on what
    has come out since the event. It was monitored in real time, probably by a
    satellite uplink on the security cameras. The staff suspected it was coming
    because one of them texted a friend that the compound was being photographed by
    the Libyan’s and he said that he was not sure he would live out the night. He
    didn’t. The staff was talking to the US Government, likely on several levels.
    They sere telling anyone who would listen what was going on. There was a drone
    overhead watching the action. There were resources available that could have
    been launched. One pass by an AC-130 would have stopped the attack cold and the
    jihadists would have crawled back into their holes. When you have small arms
    fire, direct fire (RPG’s) indirect fire (mortars) it means that there is a
    plan, there is coordination and there is command and control. Now with all of
    that, to lie the way this administration has, is unconscionable.

    Romney’s campaign has been conducted the same way.  He refuses to get down in the pig sty and grovel.  He will not reduce himself, or his family, or his associates to that level.  Obama is comfortable in the sty…and often cannot function outside of it.

    All the comments are good, folks! I heard someone on a talk show tonight comment that Romney did exactly the right thing, that EVERY talk show earlier in the day, left or right, was asking why Romney didn’t attack Obama on Benghazi because it was an Obama failure–ie, it became obvious to everyone that Romney had won on that issue without saying a word! And yes, I think Obama had already planned some sly response if Romney had brought it up, and was taken aback by all the amazing, genius, FRESH ideas Romney had. Someone else mentioned that “peace” was mentioned 12 times in the debate, ALL by Romney!!!!! The ideas Romney had were completely new and amazing, and he actually knew what he was talking about–none of the ignorant not knowing about other countries, names, events that most politicians only pretend to know about. This is the man we need as President, not just to balance the budget, but so we have just a chance to increase peace in the world, while still having strength as a nation. WOW!!!!!

    I think Romney believes he has the fight won and this being the last round in the ring with the adversary, he did not want to say something that could  harm his chances.
    He knew Obama was lying and he knew some of the press members was going to pick those lies and do his job.
    Sean Hannity did part of it tonight., Rush did and Glenn of course hit hard on them.

  • hughs500

    Right, these comments are very constructive and I also applaud the understanding I see from people in this forum. A person can only argue with a liar so long and the best thing to do is let the record speak for its self. In fact, as “Frustrated” eluded to, the Media is more apt to bring the strategic “hits” Romney “could have used” to the forefront because they can’t help them selves. They have to show their intelligentsia off by proving they would be smarter than Romney in the fight while recklessly exposing THEIR candidate’s real record. I think Jesus is actually who he is trying to imitate.   

  • JoAnn Graham

    Maybe Romney was just giving  the American people an opportunity to get to know the “real” Obama–the narcissistic, strutting little puppet who is a legend in his own mind, and so much smarter than the rest of us that he can tell the most blatant LIES and figures we will not be smart enough to know the difference, or else too intimidated by the possibility of being labeled a “racist” to call him on it.  If you listened to the Great Eared One’s grandiose descriptions of his “accomplishments” and compared them to REALITY, it was painfully obvious that he is, to put it kindly, DELUSIONAL. I would hope there were a good number of the “undecided” out there who saw it too, and recognized his delusional preening for what it was.

    I WAS disappointed that Romney did not hold the America-hating, lying little puke’s feet to the fire on Libya and any number of subjects where he easily could have.  That said, I thought Romney scored some solid hits with his “apology tour” broadside and telling us that we would never hear HIM (Romney) telling Putin he’d have more flexibility to make a deal after the election. I also liked when he told ODUMBER, “Attacking ME is not an agenda.”, point8ng out Obama’s street-fighter tactics and the emptiness of his rhetoric with devastating effect.

    I just pray to God that all the ground Romney has gained since the debates is enough to turn that Communist POSER out of office, though I fear what kinds of “executive orders” and other sneak attacks the little weasel will try to ambush us with in the two months he has left.  That is, if he does not use the UN troops he has invited to “observe” the elections to keep people away from the polls and stop the election altogether.

    I do believe the Great Eared One is a crazy, narcissistic little egomaniac who will become increasingly vicious and irrational if he sees that he cannot win, and will not rest easy until I see him safely evicted from the White House and our government.  Then–and ONLY then–can the work of undoing the damage he has caused and rebuilding what he has destroyed begin..

  • JoAnn Graham

     I agree.  There is no guarantee we could get ANYTHING positive done or ANY of his vile executive orders, bills rammed thru such as Obama care, etc. nullified through Congress when he just ignores Congress and behaves like a dictator, and Congress is too gutless to even protest.

    The ONLY solution is to send him packing and REMOVE him from power–while also electing a Republican majority in the Senate and holding the majority in the House.  Then and ONLY then can we begin to reverse the destruction done by the lying progressive/socialist/islamic plants who have co-opted the Democratic party and turned it into their private Trojan Horse to destroy America from within.  I have been saying all along and repeat how, NOBODY should ever vote for a Democrat EVER for ANYTHING–they can NOT be trusted, no matter how “moderate” they seem to be, because they are LIARS, and their party is riddled with America-hating subversives who will stop at nothing to destroy this Republic and our freedoms with it.

    If there are any Democrats out there who actually love this country and don’t want to turn it into a Socialist-Democratic Europe, Communist “workers paradise”  or (God Forbid) ISLAM, then you had better get off your a$$es and take your party back, because it has become a cesspool of amoral radicals who will stop at NOTHING to tear this country down, seize power and remake it in the image of every brutal and horrific totalitarian regime whose blood-stained footsteps echo throughout human history.

    Romney is a very good person. He has ran his campaign as an honest person. He and Paul Ryan will be a great president and vice president. He has worked in business for over 25 years. He has worked hard for the Olympics in Salt Lake and took no salary. Can you do that? Could the lier “O” do it?  NO. Romney could put a lot of people people to work. They won’t be union jobs or the government. They are the good jobs that you people have started from scratch and he would bring some of the jobs that have gone to other countries back to the USA. He has ethics.  Can Obammy say anything that is not a lie?  NO. I am surprised that people can’t see that. Do you want to live under A FAR-LEFT, COMMUNISM, TERRORIST, MARKIST AND Socialist govenment?  That is Obammy’s dream for the next 4 years. He wants to be King. He Wants to destroy the USA.   He doesn’t have a plan. He wasn’t even born in the USA. The reason he has his college records sealed is because he came from Indonesian as a perverted and criminal foreidn student. THE LAP DOG MEDIA has covered this up. Obammy is so crooked he will try a lot of FRAUD to win this election. I hope the people that put him in will see that they have no jobs won’t be stupid for the next 4 years.  MAY GOD BLESS AMERICA

     Smoking pot and, don’t forget, snorting coke.  OCUMBER talks about snorting coke as casually as if  it is just nothing at all! (Apart from being illegal and a mind-altering addictive substance, cocaine is no big deal, right?)   But I can actually remember a time when those activities would have been enough to disqualify a person from getting elected to much of anything, much LESS POTUS.  After all, who wants some stoned-out COKEHEAD with his finger on the nuclear button?

    In my historical opinion, George Washington would not have taken a pass on challenging Obama’s full record.  It was a clear opportunity for Romney.  I hope that he (Romney) tell us why, before the election.  If Barack and Joe are doing such a great job in the Middle East, then why are we out of control there.  Because the “terrorists” aren’t afraid of us. Reagan straightend Iran out after Carter, and Romney can do it too!

    The Benghazi incdent is being talked about all over the place and the irrational Dems are denyjng the fact that it was a known terror attack from the beginning.  All Obama had to say was that he was waiting for the investigation to be completed and anything Romney said would have looked foolish.  He knew what he was doing.  On the Bill O’Reilly show he was ranting about the fact that Romney didn’t bring it up.  He had Colmes on with that subject and it was a confrontational distorted exchange.  Romney avoided that.

    If you’ve read Sun Tzu’s “The Art of War”… you understand that you always try to control the location of a battle that is favorable to you.  Even though I wanted Romney to pummel Obama over Benghazi, I’m sure that Obama prepared for it.  It would have been unwise for Romney to attack Obama when he was so prepared… at best it would have been a draw.  It was better to go after his unprepared flanks with the attacks on the apology tour and Russia.  While Obama joked about Russia, many of us see how Putin is consolidating power (and remember Georgia).  And Romney used a bit of misdirection with past remarks to prompt Obama to prepare so much on a topic that wouldn’t be attacked, limiting his defense (preparation time) in the other areas.  Finally, when you attack an enemy do not humiliate his citizens, for if you win you will need their support.  Romney executed the battle strategy well, while looking Presidential… and not humiliating those who in 2008 voted for Obama.

    Im not buying it! Obama had NO defense on this. There is NO WAY to spin this and use it somehow against Romney no matter how hard Obama prepared for this question. I think he (Romney) was told to leave it alone, or he (Romney) is now a part of the cover up. Benghazi was ignored by this admin on purpose! WE KNOW THIS! Mr. Beck has exposed this so well, as to the way it all went down hour by hour. THIS is why I DONT TRUST EITHER PARTY! Bush spent a lot of time with Obama before he turned over the seat of power. A VAST MAJORITY of what Obama campaign on the first time was NOT what he did when he got in office. It reminds me of what Mr. Beck said when he stood in the Oval office for real and spoke to then president Bush. He asked President Bush what would happen if Obama won and tried to do what he was saying he was going to do in his campaign. Mr. Beck said president Bush told him “Not to worry, because Barack Obama if he wins will find his hands are tied on many things as president”. Im paraphrasing but I remember what he said. NO, it is a stretch to think he is “Acting presidential”. SOMETHING STINKS ON ICE!!!!

    I think Mitt played the debate brilliantly. At first I was disappointed, then it hit me, this was on purpose. He had the ammo and knows how to use it, why?
    If he had attacked O, he would look petty and just as low.
    The less he played into the bait, the more fractious Obama became. He gave him enough rope to hang himself. Brilliant.
    He showed the world last night, what a real President looks like. A real President doesn’t degrade the position. He walked the walk and led by example last night.

    I don’t think Romney went soft in the debate…he was factual, diplomatic, even tempered, and smart.  Remember, Romney is the one who graduated cum laude from Harvard Business School, with an MBA, and was also named a Baker Scholar at Harvard Business School, and was in the top 5% of his class.  He is used to negotiating, getting advice, and putting together successful strategies.  Babs Walters should re-think her statements that he seems not very smart.  Romney is a Godly man, he supports multiple charities with donations, doesn’t drink, smoke, or blaspheme God, he actually shut down Bain to help a partner find his daughter who was missing,  and that makes him a leader with integrity and honor.  Glenn is right, we haven’t seen this in a leader in a long time.  Besides that all the information is coming out on Benghazi and the extreme failure to protect our Americans, he didn’t need to go after the President, History will do that!  The President’s behavior was shocking and disappointing.

    I have to say I was disappointed that Romney didn’t go after Obama on Libya too. Then I got to thinking, what informed person didn’t see the whole lie play out from the beginning? I think only informed and interested people watch these debates anyway, most of the young and ill informed get the message they want from Face Book and other social networks anyway, (their time being too valuable to waste).  Romney let the watching audience see Obama lie and then prove himself to be totally untruthful on so many of his accomplishments that Romney’s point was well taken that way, leaving Romney to look the more presidential and honest of the two.

    Romney probably decided to not act like some sort of demented person, who is unable to react to nonsense.  It is about time he became assured enough to not react like an adolescent young man, like his opponent has in the past.  Our country needs a REAL MAN in charge,  not one who just acts like one.  It was so insulting to me and others to think that we have to see a sporting event, complete with silly arguing going on, instead of a real match of MEN.    
       A DEBATE IS A DEBATE not a game…and our country is real, not a joke, and we need someone in the White House who can be SERIOUS….enough with the hugging and smooching on stage, too.. disgusting.

    Didn’t Obama condemn the U.S. for being “dimissive, even derisive?” 

    I found it telling that he himself treated Romney dismissively, even derisively, during the debate.  Was he serious when he explained to Romney that “planes land on them (aircraft carriers),” and that we have ”boats that go under water, called submarines,” or was that derision of the first order?

    I was very upset about Romney and not attacking Obama on Libya.  Romney could have KO’d the president over and over again and he did not do so.  There was something that got Obama very pissed off because he took a shot that I thought was very disrespectful.  “our Navy is not made of horses and bayonets Mr. Govner”   something Romney said Prior to that statement angered him and for one of the first times on national TV i saw how cut throat he can be

    I think that maybe Mr. Romney knows that this is not a debate or media story any longer, but an event that needs to be examined by the courts and judged by God.  An event too horrible to bat around in a couple of minutes of superficial argument. I think Glenn is right. I know that I am furious over the Benghazi murders and kept trying to put words in Mr. Romney’s mouth. I think allowing those 4 men to die without aide when aide was only an hour away is criminal negligence. There were so many things we could have done. But the White House did nothing. They are playing in the White House. These are not serious, intelligent, or responsible peopIe. I already opposed Obama for his big -government and big-union ideals, for his high-handed executive orders, but this… this is unforgivable. That is why Mitt Romney would be a better president than I would.  One way to recognize God leading is when what is done seems so different from what one’s emotions are telling you to do…stand instead of run, apologize instead of fight, give in instead of resist, love instead of hate, give instead of take, praise instead of eviscerate.  I am voting for Mitt Romeny.

    One word of the debate stood out. “ME”. It was like a freudian slip of the tongue. If you work hard to build a business YOU didn’t build that, but Obama wants to take personal credit for any good results in our nation. Like he went in and captures Bin Ladin all by himself. Of course when things go wrong, it was somebody else’s fault.

    Haven’t been around for awhile, but would like to make a couple of points:

    There are two ways to handle someone who throws the first punch. You can do him in with a swift counter punch, or simply sidestep it and make him look foolish. Romney decided to do the latter. Probably the wisest choice, but disappointing to those of us who wanted the Gingrich vs Obama debate.

    With the race this close in Ohio, I fear the outcome will be decided by voter fraud,and another round of hanging chads will be dissasterous for the country. In addition, no one is paying attention to the senate races, and with Harry Reid still in the drivers seat in the senate, a President Romney won’t be getting much done.

    There is a Mormon prophecy that speaks about our country when the Constitution “hang like a thread.”  The recently released book, “They Fired the First Shot 2012″ outlines how we are now living in that time.  If Obama is elected, I believe that the Constitution will be destroyed and the presidency will become a dictatorship during his term in office.

    Three things Glenn. Thanks for standing for and seeking truth! Second, the governor said when he was struck by a comment from Obama that “Attacking me is not an agenda.” We considered it right then an awesome comment, but failed in the moment to apply it to both sides. Mitt applied the old addage that “what’s good for the goose is good for the gander.” He was living by several other great principles. There is a time for confronting your peers with their complete and utter failures. Obama will face these failures soon. There will be law to face then and no grace. Finally, I think there are several rules of conflict management that Romney applied that great leaders apply more often ( we all fail in the moment at times). And a public shaming was not in order for the public to see. That will come later at the appropriate time I’m sure. Maybe I’m wrong. But I thought he looked more like Ben Franklin the ambassador/diplomate. And Obama looked more like a very bad version of a person who never acomplished anything worthy of recognition, Saul Alinsky, trying to pick a fight and cause confusion, like he has already with our economy and all his lies.

     Why did Romney go soft…and why do our politicians continue to speak smooth talk, brushing over with sunshine strokes,  the stark reality of the very dark days in which we live.

    BECAUSE THAT’S WHAT IT TAKES TO GET ELECTED – Forget the truth – that don’t sell..

    Both candidates understand clearly, that the American public no longer have the stomach nor are they concerned with overseas affairs….”We have our own problems here at home, we say…” Let nations figure out their own course of action in the future and allow other nations willing to help them, get them there. Why should it be Americas problem anyway?

    Neither candidate has the balls to stand-up and to tell it like it is….for fear of losing votes I’m sure…but if America decides to ignore her responsibilities found around the globe – it will soon come back to haunt us.

    Glenn describes well how some of us felt. So many missed opportunities I checked off in my mind.
    Hours after the last debate, wondering how Romney impacted America and recalling the look on Obama’s face, his razor sharp insults, the sneering smiles, his shoulders lowered, I realized;
    Half of America grew up in households with an angry verbally abusive parent. Half of America would go to bed that night listening to adults fighting.

    Romney may be more in touch with the people then we perceived.

    We, like the half of America listening to the fights every night from their bedrooms, may have just been conditioned to Obama’s anger and controlling ways. We’ve been primed for a fight after 4 years of Obama yelling into microphones declaring and threatening and telling us what to believe.

    We don’t have many microphones, but we hoped the neighbors would hear and help. We thought Romney was the neighbor to the rescue who would stop the bully behind the smile who keeps us awake at night. He would pop the angry abusive quarreler in the jaw, blacken at least one eye and be declared the winner of the debate.

    I think now, Romney heard what we missed..
    Good neighbors don’t rescue a family by fighting w/ the angry parent. You de-escalate.

    The comments I’ve read here, thus far, have been marvelous. I know that everyone I know has been praying for Romney and Ryan, that they do well in the debates. Prayers are never answered, though, in the way you hope they would be. Instead of a decisive knockout, what we received was a revelation on each of the four candidates. Their veils were removed and we saw each one of them for who they really are. In the case of Romney and Ryan, we were able to see that they are men of truth and courage who really plan on doing their best to restore our country to its foundational principles. In the case of Obama and Biden, their real characters, their real intentions, were revealed and not at all complimentary. I applaud Romney and Ryan for taking the higher road and pray that they, and our beloved country, all come out winners on election day.

    By not taking the bait that Obama was laying out for him Romney managed to look cool and collected and, dare I say, Presidential.  He also at the same time disrupted Obama’s flow and made many of the things he had prepared for irrelevant.  Romney looked presidential and Obama looked desperate.  Who won on points doesn’t matter, that was the 1st debate, it was a contest of style and poise for this one and Romney won hands down.

    DestinedWinners…this is exactly how the Narcissist-in-Chief treats people who don’t agree w/him or challenge him.  Remember how he had Paul Ryan sit in-front during one of his press conferences and Obama began to belittle him and his budget plan?  And if you read David Limbaugh’s book “Crimes Against Liberty”, Obama is even quoted as saying, “I can because I’m the President” whenever anyone challenged him.

    Obama expected Romney to come out swinging because of Benghazi and was thrown off of his game by a complete 180 in Romney’s tactics. Obama prepared for a battle and when that didn’t happen he just went ahead with the battle…. and lost. This was a good move for Romney to get the female vote and to show he does know what he is doing by using his wits to battle an unarmed opponent.

    Glenn Beck,has always and is very much in love with Romney. He pretended he was against romney before and would only go with romney to beat romney.

    romney is heavily pro-establishment- and everything beck in his truth stands for.

    Romney did not go after obama because he is helping obama to get elected and giving the illusion he is running versus just acting as he is doing.  Just as McCain did to Obama.  For this, Beck has a lot of love for romney.

    it is not true as beck says that romney was an honorable man to not go after obama and romney is the flip opposite of washington/lincoln and infact romney is anti-washington.  santorum also is nothing like washington, but slightly closer to washington that romney is or will ever be. 

    beck and his followers express such hatred for this country and its founders by falsely comparing people like washington/lincoln to republican establishment candidates like romney and santorum.  infact, newt gingrich is most similar to washington/lincoln – and that is why beck joined the so-called left and obama in bashing newt when he was popular in a sick, cruel fashion.

    But is it possible for a governor to nullify Obamacare? It’s federal legislation after all, and it’s been held up by the Supreme Court. Just asking. Also, even if we do have a majority in the Senate (as of now it looks like Harry Reid will retain power), how much of a majority vote do we need in each chamber of Congress? A simple majority or 2/3 majority? If it’s a 2/3 majority then Obamacare will never be repealed. Although you mentioned something about de-funding rather than repeal. That sounds interesting, but how would that work?

  • poed

    Romney was brilliant!!!  Not what I wanted to see, but now analyzing it, he beat Obama at his own game.

    If Romney went after Obama on Benghazi, the MSM would have crucified him for making this “political” and formed a narrative of “politics come before the lives of Americans.”   Romney didn’t take the bait.

    If Romney criticized Obama on bin Laden, he would have come across as “not fully understanding the threat of Al-Qaeda thus not ready for the Commander in Chief position”. Romney again didn’t take the bait, and congratulated Obama on his decision.

    If Romney tried to point out specifics on failures in the Mid-East from the Arab Spring, he would be touted as 1) a “war-monger”, or 2) inaction, which would be viewed as a stance “against freedoms for oppressed peoples” of these nations.  Again, Romney did not take the bait.

    With all 3 of these things, the Obama camp was primed and ready to stick it to Romney with the MSM ready and willing to amplify….BUT ROMNEY HAD OTHER PLANS!!!!

    IT WAS BRILLIANT!!!!!  I think these were the main reasons, and “looking Presidential” was just a BONUS!

    Everyone has it WRONG. Mitt did exactly the right thing. It is sublime in it’s sneakiness.
    Mitt avoided the One thing Obama was prepared for – Obama’s whole debate was predicated on defending his Biggest Screw-Up. Romney knew that he could get the Pundits & Masters (Like you Mister Beck) to talk about this issue like crazy! It would get brought up again and again FOR FREE! Mitt didn’t even have to say a word. Mitt could move the “Foreign Relations” debate back to the Economy which Mitt is a Genius (especially compared to The One – or The Zero)
    Well it worked.

    I’m a news junkie I spend many many hours a day watching/ listening to the news and the pundits comments. The Bengazi Debacle (Please no more “-Gates” it really Trivializes a very serious issue) is burning up the wires! Literally!

    Romney was really smart. Obama was totally prepared on Libya and would have accused him of continuing to politicize a tragedy. I am sure the script was brilliant, written by Axelrod! You could tell Obama was trying to bait him into raising it and Romney didn’t fall for it. As a result, when it hit the fan today with the new emails, they couldn’t blame Romney for the furor. I watch someone try it on CNN and he was immediately hammered with the fact that Romney didn’t do anything to politicize Libya at the debate. He had no answer. It was great!

    They lied to the American people about what had taken place, a cover-up, those other conflicts you have mentioned didn’t have the massive cover-up added to it. Now, because Obama wouldn’t come clean and tell the truth instead of blaming it on some guy of which they tossed a pillowcase over his head while handcuffed and dragged him away, never to be seen again. Where is the outrage you ask? It’s right where it belongs and you are seeing it.

    Colin Powell always was a ‘mole’ rat fink. He endorsed yomama when he was working for Bush. A far over rated person.

    HMMMMM yomama returned the bust of Churchhill right away because he hated England, yomama insulted us  to the Queen, he went around apologizing for  the USA being dictating, yomama is a muslim and needs to be impeached.
    We want our USA run by an honest Christian man. If you don’t like the word Christian man then get out of the USA and go to another country

    I disagree with Beck. I think Romney is terrified of the mainstream media including Fox News and Bill O’Reilly, whose show he has avoided like the plague. Obama and Romney are both big government Statists. Though Romney is the lesser of two evils I see Obama as totally evil and must be defeated.

    you are right on, Diane.  I wish and am praying that the rest of voters can see thru this Obama curtain he has put up.  If we have a man who prayes, that is the first condition to getting America back.  God have mercy on us at the election.

    I always pray for all the candidates that God’s will will prevail.  God spoke on election night and it is our Christian duty to follow and support the duly constituted authority of the land, President Barack Obama.  God bless the President, his wonderful family and this great nation.
