Brief summation of debate: Romney wins

Desperate Obama interrupts, hurls one-liners, petty attacks

In their final campaign debate before the election, Mitt Romney succinctly and calmly responded to Barack Obama’s criticism of him on the evening’s topic of foreign policy. In a line that sounded rehearsed and tinny, Obama accused him of “wrong and reckless leadership that is all over the map.”

Romney’s concise response inspired trust and exuded leadership. “Attacking me is not an agenda” for dealing with a dangerous world, he said.

America deserves better than Obama’s practiced sound bites and the failed policies of the last four years. Our country is in economic shambles. Mitt Romney was far more presidential in the debate than Barack Obama. The man currently holding the job appeared to be the challenger.

“It is essential for a president to show strength from the very beginning,” asserted Romney.

    I watched the entire debate and concluded that it was Romney who appeared presidential, giving calm, reasoned responses. Obama typically glared and spewed. He smells defeat. My fear is election fraud, which we are continually told is not happening, but in fact is:

    I agree that Romney was the winner last night. I am disappointed that he did not take advantage of a couple of wide openings that Obama gave him. A knockout was available and I am always wary when you let your opponent off the hook. – especially with the D’s penchant for voter fraud.

    Arizona will definitely be in the Romney column, however, we have to make sure we defeat Carmona, Sinema and Kirkpatrick. Flake is the only race that could swing the balance of power in Congress so that is the most important federal election.

    Here’s a pic of Mitt Romney in an Iowa cornfield. Awesome aerial view.

    I am more focused on the state legislature. There is a real chance to foil the IRC plot by electing 19 Republican Senators and 36-37 House Republicans – and to do it with more conservatives.

    The contest for legislative leadership is on the table in both the House and Senate. Sen. Biggs has announced that he is running for Senate President and reliable sources guarantee that a conservative challenge to Tobin is in the works. It is very important that the Yavapai Yucks are defeated.

    Both Pierce and Tobin have taken horrible positions that give refuge to public employee unions, support the illegal action of the Kris Mayes Corporation Commission 15% renewable mandate, refuse to eliminate fraud and abuse in welfare, food stamps and education, pander to the RINOs, allowed Victory Funds to be spent against conservative Republicans and are the pawns for the McCain/Chamber money. If not for all those things, they might actually qualify to be called Republicans.

    Have you seen this video called “Look America in the Eye?” It’s something Obama is understandably unable to do. When I was a teenager, my Dad wouldn’t allow me to leave the house with a date who wouldn’t come in the house, talk to him and “look me (Dad) in the eye.” He didn’t trust anyone who wouldn’t. That would be the end of the evening, even before it began!! At the time I thought he was being overbearing and mean Now I realize how right he was. My daughter can attest to that being our family policy today.

    Today’s Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking poll shows Mitt Romney supported by 50% of voters nationwide, while Obama comes in at 46%. One percent prefers some other candidate, and amazingly, two percent are still undecided. They must be spending too much time at the local pub.

    Other than brief convention bounces, this is the first time either candidate has led by more than three points in months.

    Romney attracts support from 89% of Republican voters. The president earns the vote from 82% of Democrats. And the best news is among those not affiliated with either major party, Mitt Romney leads by nine points!!

    No matter how important it is that we get rid of Obama on Nov. 6, be sure to keep in mind that Romney is a liberal, too.

    Don’t expect any major changes. Romney will merely slow our descent into fascism/socialism. He will not reverse the trend.

    • ZOO says:

      If he doesn’t “reverse the trend” on the border, interior enforcement, and amnesty, it will be my last vote for any Republican. And I think the odds of that are 50/50 at best.

      • garvan says:

        I quit the GOP in 1994 when Gingrich and Lott neutered the incoming conservatives in both houses.

        It’s getting terribly tiresome voting for the lesser of two evils every time there’s an election.

  8. patriotmom says:

    If Romney wins, there’s going to be a lot of pressure brought to bear by conservatives who want border security addressed once and for all, as well as dealing with the illegals already here. It will be interesting to see if Romney adopts Gingrichs plan to allow illegals to stay, but stipulate that they can never become citizens. That would not surprise me. The bigger issues are: E-Verify (must be required of every business) chain migration (must not be allowed) birthright citizenship (European countries, for example, have disallowed it since 2004), self-deportation and border security (fencing is just one option). We also need stronger sentences for repeat border jumpers, not just ones who commit a crime.

    The GOP will get one shot at this. They need to make good on it to preserve American culture, language and sovereignty. If they mishandle the opportunity that may be theirs, expect a permanent Dem majority in a few years thanks to amnesty and chain migration. We will essentially open our borders to all comers and the Dems will sign them up for every government program possible to buy their votes- and it will work.
