Romney attacks Obama’s ‘trickle
down government’ in first debate

Washington Times, by Dave Boyer & Stephen Dinan

Denver - Claiming he’s the true champion of a middle class that’s being “crushed” under President Obama, Mitt Romney went straight at the president Wednesday in the first debate of the campaign, saying his four years in office have doubled the deficit and left the economy gasping. Mr. Obama countered that Mr. Romney is hiding key parts of his plans from voters, but said from what he’s seen, the Republican nominee would take government back to Bush administration policies that led to the 2008 recession. (Snip) Unlike Mr. Obama, who said he wanted to look forward, Mr. Romney repeatedly pointed

Romney was brutal with is numbers, and his numerous statements that we were borrowing from China to finance things, notably 0bama failures, were hitting too. The only bigger hits than in this debate this day must have been when 0bama had to face Michelle and Valerie Jarrett in private afterward. Ow ow owo wowow o owow.

Maybe if Obozo hadn't spent so much time campaigning, taking vacations, and playing golf, he might have had more command of how the government works and might have been able to do a little better job debating.
Did anyone else think that Mooch looked a little off?

I'm not convinced Obama really wants another 4 years..He's never going to win on the face value of anything,so the only option he has is abusing executive orders or devising a scheme to overthrow the government.

Obamacare,that he's so proud of, isn't going to be very useful if you have hoards of doctors leaving the profession or going to a fee for service practice.

Replacing private sector health paper pushers with government ones will be a double whammy of the budget.I'll bet the cost projectors didn't even look at this.

I don't believe Obama gave the order to kill BinLaden. How many responsible presidents would be playing golf while a high value Seal team is about to raid the living quarters of the world's most wanted man?

And what about GM which has survived on government subsides and fleet purchases to stay afloat. I'll bet they need another cash infusion but we won't hear about it until after the election.The management at GM wants Obama and the government out of their lives. They're losing sales being so attached to obama.They would scrap the Volt in 10 minutes with Obama out of their hair.Obama crammed a bunch of Volts down the military's throat which will sit rotting in parking lots.

Obama showed up and voted 'Present'. That's about it!

(Thought I'd de-lurk for all you lucky people) I watched the debate with a group of friends this evening. While I don't think Romney was quite as strong as he's being portrayed in the analysis I'm reading, in comparison to Obama and his poor showing, I guess I'll take what I can get.

Post debate, I ended up getting into a heated discussion with five people about basic principles, me being the odd one out (as I soon discovered). This is the first time I've had face-to-face, in-the-open political discussions in quite a while.

It is truly amazing - scary, actually - to see these educated people unthinkingly spout hard, Marxist principles and not even realize it - one of the most strident was small a business owner.

It was scary to hear them uncritically parrot the MSM narrative and to hear them call the Tea Partiers and their motivation as being racists and racism - and deeply believe it. Unthinking, selfish boilerplate - all of it.

One of them declared out loud that we were no longer friends. Another yelled and left the room crying. I am not making this up - it really happened.

Educated, middle income people in one of the reddest states in the union: all I asked them was if they believed they were responsible for their own well being or was someone else responsible for them.

I honestly think we've rounded the bend.

#4 ... No, "we" haven't rounded the bend. You just found out the people you've been hanging around with really aren't who you thought they were. The mistake was yours, accept it, and move on.

Barry is presidentee in name only. It's really Jarret and her 55 czars who are co-presidentees. Barry's only there to announce or not announce to the public what they've told him to.

Hey, #4. You must live in Austin, Texas!

I thought Romney did a fine and dandy job of splaying open the Asshat in Chief. However, just like in The Terminator, Romney better keep watching what's coming up behind him.

Time to reload and prepare for the next onslaught. The MSM is giving him quarter this morning but that will all be over by tomorrow when they begin a full scale assault.

My condolences #4. The fact is we have a lot of 'educated' people who assume they are very knowledgeable, but in reality are stunningly ignorant. They get a piece of paper from somewhere and take it as a certificate that their opinions are validated. You challenged their assumptions about life and politics, made them realize they were just assumptions and not knowledge, and they didn't like it.

#4 I'm guessing you live just outside the Austin area just like me. Since I work in Austin I expect it to be very quiet all day at work. So far it has been deafening.

I used to be an Austinite but now live in an even redder state, believe it or not. After sleeping on it, I think you're right - they have never been openly challenged and it comes as a shock to them. It was like arguing with charicatures. I'd like to think I planted a few seeds in their minds, but am ultimately doubtful.

We at Townhall have been covering this hotly contested Senate race for months and the results are finally in: With 36 percent of precincts reporting, Elizabeth Warren has been declared the next junior Senator from Massachusetts. Warren has never held public office before and the eye-popping $40 million she raised this election cycle evidently proved more than enough to unseat incumbent Senator Scott Brown. This was the most expensive Senate race of 2012 -- by a long shot.

CNN’s Peter Hamby reported that Mitt Romney‘s internal polling showed President Obama leading in Ohio by five percentage points.Per Hamby’s post: The number represented a sharp final bump for Obama in Ohio, a race that had essentially been a tied race through much of the previous week, according to the campaign’s daily tracking. The polling, which also showed a tight race in Pennsylvania, explains why Romney officials decided to send their candidate on last-minute Election Day visits to Cleveland and Pittsburgh.

The Obama and Romney campaigns may be gearing up for a very late night, with one Obama campaign adviser predicting that in Florida alone, "they'll be counting until 2 a.m." The Obama adviser said signs suggest the race is quite tight, though the campaign claimed to be "holding strong" in key battlegrounds like Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. The adviser also said turnout among black voters in Virginia was better than expected, suggesting that could be a problem for Mitt Romney. Republican operatives in Virginia, though, predicted a razor-thin victory for their candidate in the state.

Washington - Early returns on Tuesday in what is anticipated to be a dead even presidential election contained no surprises, as CNN projected President Barack Obama will win his home state of Illinois and eight other races while Republican challenger Mitt Romney will win nine states. All races called so far went as expected after the roller-coaster ride of an election campaign that was buffeted by a superstorm and missteps on both sides. Obama and Romney ran dead even in final polls that hinted at a result rivaling some of the closest presidential elections in history, reflecting the deep political

A week after Hurricane Sandy slammed into the East Coast, a majority of voters said President Barack Obama’s response to the crisis wasn’t a factor in their vote, according to early exit polls. Fifty-five percent of those surveyed, per CBS News’ early exit polling released by radio station WKZO in Kalamazoo, Mich., said Obama’s handling of the storm was a minor factor in their vote or wasn’t a factor at all. Twenty-six percent named Sandy as an “important” factor, and 15 percent said it was the “most important” factor in their decision.

Mitt Romney is leading among independents in both Ohio and Virginia, early exit polls show. In Ohio, the former Massachusetts governor takes 56 percent of self-identified independents, compared with 40 percent for President Barack Obama. That’s a huge decrease for Obama from 2008, when the exit polls found him winning independents in Ohio by 12 points, 52 percent to 44 percent for John McCain. The numbers are similar but slightly tighter in Virginia: Romney takes 53 percent of independents there, according to ABC News exit polls, a 12-point lead over Obama. In 2008, Obama won independents in the state by

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan
