It is very much unclear to me why they view these debates as point value debating. Why? Because you should not give points for outright lying in any form, but then again if you have no substance for your arguments then you have to lie to cover over your real record of hits and misses. Obama hasn’t done anything he takes credit for, others did those things for him. Seal Team 6 killed Osama Bin Laden not Obama all he did was to OK the mission after his entire administration said not to. I give him credit for that decision only not the actual kill. Its a political stunt and nothing more!
If you have to win by points for lying then you lose on substance alone, substance matters more than how well you lie and get away with it. The way these debates are judged is wrong so that its easy for the losers to win. This election is not about the fluff and the sound bites that just amount to bumper sticker politics, its about the fall of our republic to socialistic ideas that will not work but to destroy America from within. The people created this mess that they now suffer under and its the people who must fix the mess before it bears its rotten fruit!
Romney had the night as he always has in substance, he appeared more Presidential, more sure of his answers than Obama did, that cannot be denied unless you are a partisan without political conscience. Obama did not handle Romney’s counter arguments with Presidential surety, he simply doesn’t have what takes to be commander in chief, he never has. Without a teleprompter or a written speech before him he acts lost and unsure of himself!
Mitt Romney was absolutely right when he said “Attacking me is not an agenda…” which is why Romney did not counter attack the Presidents lack of knowledge on Libya, he would have come off as the Bully that Obama was against him. He made a reasoned decision not engage him there, that’s for the media to do if they wanted to do their jobs anyway but are they doing it?
Last night after Romney criticized him for his stance against the Navy, Obama was condescending and mean when he said :
“Governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets, because the nature of our military has changed. We have these things called aircraft carriers, where planes land on them. We have these ships that go underwater – nuclear submarines. The question is not a game of battleships, where we’re counting ships.”
Look if you don’t have a real plan you attack your opponent instead, Romney simply mentioned his lack of doing what he should have done and the President was an attack dog, that is not what you do if your right about what you stand on. If your right you stand on principles not bumper sticker quotes which Obama uses frequently. Romney put the facts out there as they were, unencumbered by covering up the facts to make himself look better and Obama has no good response to this fact:
Obama visited every terrorist state surrounding Israel but dissed our closest friend in the middle east, if that doesn’t belie his belief system then who do you think he loves more? Islam or Israel?
“By the way, they (The Terrorists) noticed that you skipped Israel. And in those nations, and on Arabic TV, you said that America had been dismissive and derisive. You said that, on occasion, America had dictated to other nations. Mr. President, America hasn’t dictated to other nations. We have freed other nations from dictators.”
What Obama did was not right and its about time we called him on it, a man that can lie as he does cannot be trusted as President especially when you consider that if he wins this time nothing is lost by him if America fails to survive his planned progressive attack of our founding ideas, its just to dangerous to let this man win!
These are the facts, there not lies as the Obama camp states, this is how the world views us now….weak and afraid to act. Obama is no Ronald Reagan when it comes to standing up to terrorists, but Romney is acting more and more like Reagan every day.
The question is simple, do we want a man who bows before those who hold us over a barrel of oil?
Or do we want a man who stands tall with principles that dictate his action?
Romney plainly stated the Big Picture that Obama ignores completely!
“Well, my strategy is pretty straightforward, which is to go after the bad guys, to make sure we do our very best to interrupt them, to — to kill them, to take them out of the picture.
But my strategy is broader than that. That’s — that’s important, of course. But the key that we’re going to have to pursue is a — is a pathway to get the Muslim world to be able to reject extremism on its own.
We don’t want another Iraq, we don’t want another Afghanistan. That’s not the right course for us. The right course for us is to make sure that we go after the people who are leaders of these various anti-American groups and these jihadists, but also help the Muslim world.”
“I’ve got a policy for the future and agenda for the future. And when it comes to our economy here at home, I know what it takes to create 12 million new jobs and rising take-home pay. And what we’ve seen over the last four years is something I don’t want to see over the next four years.”
Do we want a man who takes his marching orders from the United Nations an abject failure in itself, instead of the United States Constitution? I think not!
Obama has lessened our Constitutional system of Justice at every turn because he doesn’t believe that the Constitution is relevant to his agenda! He believes Judges not the Constitution have the final say in making laws to benefit his agendas.
President Obama swore this oath before stepping into his office :
“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.” Instead he has done the exact opposite, he has preserved, protected and defended his personal skin rather than the Constitution of these United States!
But what does Obama think concerning the Constitution? Click Here
To me a voter, this is all that I needed to know this President and nothing can change that now, Obama doesn’t think our Constitution which he swore to uphold, is of the value we all hold true. How can we continue to try and make excuses for him knowing how he feels about our founding document?
The Answer…..we can’t!
Go over these debates again with an open heart before you vote in another 4 years of the same failed policies of Obama:
