White House Insider:
Second Debate: Obama Won –
But Romney Didn’t Lose

Ulsterman Report, by Ulsterman

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 10/17/2012 11:39:45 AM

A brief update from a longtime D.C. political operative shows calm in the storm that is the final weeks of a presidential campaign – and regarding last night’s most recent debate between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, the sentiment appears to be NO WORRIES. (Snip)Obama won. Just deal with it and move on. I’d call it a toss up until the moderator stopped the governor’s momentum on Benghazi. You already did something on that yourself. That was about as blatant a moment of media bias smack in the middle of a debate that I can recall.

Comments:
WHI interview goes on to state that Romney's people acted with strength and class, not whining about the bias. WHI gives them a lot of points for that and believes the audience that watched the debate knows what happened.

obama won is the spin for the day. He didn't win, he just didn't completely lose. Yet, he is still a loser. I'm convinced the media folk want to build up to the next debate to boost their ratings up to get more people to watch the next debate. They run the risk of turning off viewers.

I was happy to see the Luntz focus groups see all the wonderful potential in Romney after the debate. Most of them had voted for 0bama in 2008, but now changed to Romney. Unlike the owners of "0bama phones," all these people who possess these FREE phones used them to Tweet they want to kill Romney, because they might lose their Food Stamps and Free Phones. How sick has this society become?

Good lands. Obama did not win. But they'll say it all day long until they believe their own lies. The best sign of Obama's loss? The focus groups.

#3, what's hilarious about those morons is that don't realize they're going to lose them anyway when the economy collapses. I just hope R&R can stave it off a few more years. But with over 200 trillion of federal debt, that amount isn't going to be paid off in current dollars, ever.

The fact is, Romney did not compete against Obama. He had to compete against the tag team of Obama and Crawley, and he was successful in doing that.

Obama was declared the winner last week, so that's no surprise. I have to admit the Crawley/Obama team was as effective as the Rattass/Biden team at steamrolling and controlling the process.

Poor Jim Lehrer. He will go done as a failure for not carrying his lifeless team member across the finish line in a way that could be argued as a win. Will he be merely shunned or outright banned for his failure?

Romney won the debate. 0bama made a lot of noise and kicked up dust, but he did not make any points. Intellectually, he was still an empty chair.

The left-media knows 0bama is finished. That's why they stacked the deck in his favor and sent in Candy 'Refrigerator' Cowley to block for him.

Romney won, brilliantly.

#2, Indeed. Re: Fast and Furious, a bit of the transcript from the debate:

ROMNEY:... I'd like to understand who it was that did this, what the idea was behind it, why it led to the violence, thousands of guns going to Mexican drug lords. OBAMA: Candy?

CROWLEY: Governor, Governor, if I could, the question was about these assault weapons that once were once banned and are no longer banned.

As WHI said, so obvious.

An Update from the White House Insider has been added to the original article since it was posted. It begins:

*****UPDATE*****

This just came from Insider:

Have a heads up for you. This comes directly from the Old Man. Military intelligence may have tracked location of a guy called “Khattalah” who apparently organized the Benghazi attack. Check media reports for name. Obama to order drone strikes or possible all out bombing operation. Says it appears imminent. Obama will then make claim “perpetrators brought to justice” to squash Benghazi questions and play part of hero. “Bin Laden Version 2 “ If accurate, this scenario would fit with the earlier rescue operation scenario you had sent me earlier. That went to sh-t so now they are recalibrating the same general idea with an updated version of it.


Go to article to read full update. And Google Khattalah - WSJ has an article today that can be read at Google but not posted as it is subscriber content.

Well I hope our ambassador and the other 2 Americans don't mind giving their lives for the attempted re-election of a Marxist set out to destroy this country.

Obama is going to explode this country and as a communist agitator I'm sure that will be fine with him.

Even if the Gov't claims (accurately or falsely) to have found the perpetrator and starts bombing, that does not erase the fact that Obama and his administration knew from the outset that the 9/11 attack was a planned al-Qaeda hit, and engaged in a deliberate two-week cover-up to avoid bad PR, blaming everything instead on an idiotic YouTube video.

No matter what, this will be nothing more than a 'wag the dog' and zippy and his crew will still have lied about it for weeks. I seriously doubt anyone will change his vote over a bombing at this late date. And it will reek of desperation.

I wish I could dig up my old post from the day after the first debate. I postulated that Obama had to head into the foreign policy debate with a foreign policy success story. I guessed it would be a Libya retaliatory strike. So today, according to Ulsterman, we hear that the consulate attack mastermind “Khattalah” has been found! If it's true, I'm now guessing that “Khattalah” will be blown to smithereens and his body parts submerged next to Osama. The alternative is that Libya already has him under arrest and there will be a colorful show trial. Of course the credit will go to Obama. Whatever it is it will be a staged event. We'll see.

Re ***ALERT***, a military strike is right up the Chicago crowd's alley, and just like Bill Clinton who hit an aspirin factory and couple of tents. We'll deal with whatever comes.

Meanwhile, higher ups in the intelligence community are reportedly outraged over Obama's treatment of Benghazi last night on top of his continued attempts to blame them for the debacle, ''We didn't know.'' Reports say some are ready to blow him out of the water.

Obama and Hillary are playing with fire. Four of our own were killed and important people are not happy.

Exactly what good does Obama think throwing a bunch of bombs around Libya will do? A large percentage of the population there is pro-American, with only a relatively small Islamist presence there. Any bombing campaign will make the situation there massively worse.

If Obama does this, Romney needs to oppose it in the worst way. There are ways of getting the perpetrators of the attack without a bombing campaign. It's obviously a "wag the dog" move, and I sincerely hope Romney has the stones to point out the foolishness of such a move, if it happens.

I don't believe a word of this at all. So Obama and Rice said it was a video, then a terrorist attack, then it was Hillary's fault, and now Barack will fire a drone? So it wasnt' a video and he lied at the beginning? I don't think the US has enough military presence anywhere at the moment to launch the kind of assault Obama thinks will save his skinny butt. If I recall, the intelligence gathering in Libya was and is a shambles, and I am guessing this Bin Laden II fellow is somewhere far in the desert away from prying eyes.

Why would Obama drop bombs inside Libya when he and Hillary refused to send additional security and reinforcements to the consulate because of the fear of offending the new Libyan government? Now we are to believe he's going to drop bombs instead?

Nah.

Re "update" at #12:

...Obama will then make claim “perpetrators brought to justice” to squash Benghazi questions and play part of hero...

Obama can try to make that claim. But it's 4 lives too late.

Why were our personnel in Benghazi deliberately left unprotected in such an obviously dangerous time?
Whether an alleged perpetrator is vaporized by a drone, or not, that question still remains -- and will forever remain a blot on Obama's pathetic record.

Not unexpected move, however, the public is becoming so jaded, that anyone who switched from Obama at this point, isn't going to switch back simply because he ordered a few drones. With the way his luck is going, he'll probably hit a few innocent civilians in the process and get bad press.

Obama used a drone strike to kill an American on foreigh process without due process.

This does not impress me and will only anger his base, as I agree with the Dems that this is a very slippery slope and very bad policy.

Therefore, bring it on.

According to Lame Cherry, and implied in an earlier posting by the White House Insider, the Obama administration left Benghazi unguarded because they expected the Libyans to kidnap the ambassador. Then in an October surprise, Obama would get the ambassador released, maybe by doing a trade for the blind sheik or maybe by doing some sort of air strike and terrorizing the Libyans.

A little hitch happened when the ambassador was unexpectedly killed and sodomized, or perhaps sodomized and killed. Anyway, if these sources are correct, Obama is now going to the air strike scenario for revenge. Obama keeps saying over and over that these people will be brought to justice, and even if he only manages to blow up a tent and a camel, the MSM will back him when he says he has taught Al Qaeda another lesson. And voila, a new and shiny foreign policy triumph for our brave president.

The new update not withstanding... What I like about Ulsterman's original story about 0 winning the debate, is his multiple references to: "Just deal with it and move on." There really isn't any time before the election to waste time with 'what if's.'

We need to say, 'It is what it is,' and move forward with the truth, as it appears the Romeny/Ryan team is doing. Good for them.

And, before I forget, have you studied the painting/illustration at the top of the story. Wow - SO telling/condemning of the 0 administration.

And, IF the 0 people are manipulating the murder of the four for a political 'bump', may God condemn them to Hell.

Watched some of the debate but could not stand the so called "moderator" ; so turned off to read discussions. And these undecideds, if some one hasn't made up their mind by now then they have a lot of problems. The "moderator" picks the questions, blow me down...this is an all time set up moderator,undecideds and some one knowing the questions before the debate...color me cynical.

I'm not familiar with the ulsterman report -- so I don't know what their bias is....

There's that famous clinton word -- "is" -- I wanted to laugh out loud when obama inferred that the Rose Garden briefing was a shining moment in the Bengazi attack. It all depends on what "is" a terror attack -- or any terror attack "is" serious....

They love to play with words. And the candy crawly woman came through loud and clear as biased and opinionated. She isn't running for president -- at least I don't think so... AND I know obama needed her help -- but -- in front of millions of people -- it wasn't a good moment for her. She's lost credibility -- completely....

BTW -- Limbaugh is right about the study done in California. Liberal women are "not" very attractive compared with comservative women. WE conservative women take pride in looking good for our husbands...

Feel sorry for anyone living in Libya and being named Khattalah! Whether he's guilty or not. The boy president is feeling his oats and needs to feel big again. This may be tantamount to Klintoon lobbing bombs at camel butts in an earlier day.

It is so entertaining when dhimmocrats are in office. Gack.

Not surprised by any of this. If it happens it will look like just what it is, Wag the Dog, October Surprise, Desperate Attempt to save campaign. And there's always the chance - a big one - it will get screwed up and make things much worse.

Oh, and a Muzzie tried to blow up the Federal Reserve Bldg today - even though Obama has eradicated terrorism, dontcha know. This is exactly what happened here in Portland a couple years ago, when a guy tried to blow up families awaiting the Christmas tree lighting - hundreds of people with babies in strollers, etc. But of course it's a religion of peace that we need to respect. And Obama loves them. Can things get any more screwed up???

I read somewhere a while back that CIA knew who these guys were the next day, because they were all over their cell phones talking about it. We have friends in Libya. GOOD friends, thanks to Stevens and others. Friends who would be happy to finger the guys responsible and eliminate their competition. Drones? Bombs? Pure cowboy stuff. Just let the spooks handle it and wait for bad guys to start going permanently missing.

Will Obama order some strikes? Maybe. Will there be some quiet warnings to our friends? Maybe. I still say Benghazi and the video demonstrations were unrelated events. I don't buy the phony kidnap scenario. Obama's crew had advance notice of the video demonstrations and was about to roll out a narrative linking them to American Christian fundamentalists. Crazy? Sure. But how did the Cairo embassy apologize for the video BEFORE the demonstrations began?

I have been reading the White House Insider for a couple of years now, and it is scary how accurate the reporting has been. So I read with scepticism but keep in mind what is suggested.

Was totally heartened that Candy kept this story alive with her unintented flub last night. The O administration desparately wanted to kill this story before next Monday, now that is not going to happen, and I am wondering what the Clintons are devising? Something is up there. I also don't think that it is out of the question for Obama to go all "asprin factory", if you remember that attack ended up being an embarassment for Clinton.

Encouraged that there are numerous lawn signs in the burbs of Easton PA. These same folks had Obama signs out last election! Way Cool!!!

Romney won the 2nd debate. Because Obama had a pulse this time, the MSM gives the win to Obama, however, it was all style, no substance. Romney won substance bigtime. The media wants the horse race. They would have declared Obama the winner even if he had sent Joe Biden in his place. Romney will win in a landslide. Oh woe to the Dems, their day of reckoning is drawing nigh.

I predicted a drone strike this morning, early, before the Ulsterman report. This White House is just so predictable. And Hillary is in the game with all the experience she has at these Wag-the-Dog stunts from the Clinton Admin. I expect a drone strike, or some other strike, before the Sunday talk shows. Early voting starts Monday in Texas.

Where are DNI Clapper and General David in all this mess?

Oh yes -- executive privilege except there is no executive in the WH.

Lots of privilege and no executive.

So, if the update is correct, then I think those with Twitter accounts should start a hashtag dealing with the rumors in advance. That way it will be so totally obvious that Obama is pulling a fast one he either won't do it or it won't have the same impact. I think he's going to be trying to get out of doing that debate altogether.

Just asking the question gets it out there and it'll have to be dealt with.

If the intelligence community " failed " Obama
in Benghazi , how can they suddenly
be trusted to pinpoint
the proper target in a dysfunctional third world country of lookalikes ???
Rush to judgement and pathetic wag the dog spring to mind.
And shouldn't the alleged terrorist be given a trial before execution ?
Paging the ACLU and Code Pink.
CNN says the reason that Mama Milk Dud gave Obama more speaking time is because he's a slow talker.
That's hilarious and makes him sound mentally challenged.
And like something from a Seinfeld episode.

All we heard after the vice presidential debate last Thursday night was how much good the cackling, slightly unbalanced Joe Biden had done for an Obama campaign that had been rocked by Mitt Romney's overwhelming performance in the first presidential debate. Well, now we know that just isn't the case. Since the VP debate, Romney's increased his lead in Gallup to 51-45%.

FTA: "The media is gonna try and spin the “comeback kid” scenario for Obama the next few.......By the weekend a different tune is coming. Of course, there are lots of whispers of plans to alter this outcome. Hit Romney up with a scandal, maybe Obama bombs the f-ck out of Libya just for sh-ts and giggles."

Hit Romney with a scandal?? Good luck with that. It just shows how desperate (and evil) the 0bama camp is at this point, so desperate that I might even suspect 0bama's ratings are much lower than the polls are reflecting.

If I was a Muslim in the middle-east I would be keeping a tight rectum between now and the next debate. Obama may want to whack a few Muslims to show how tough he is, and he won't be too picky.

Surely an autopsy was done on Ambassador Stevens and the other victims? Has anyone heard anything about one? I haven't heard it mentioned, but its a no-brainer given the circumstances. Why has no one asked?

Jindo, South Korea -- A passenger describes women screaming in the darkness. A father learns his child is trapped. A son, fearing death, tells his mother he loves her. Investigators haven´t said what caused a South Korean ferry boat carrying hundreds of passengers to capsize on Wednesday. But as rescuers searched frigid waters for nearly 300 missing people, text messages purporting to be from missing passengers surfaced, describing the harrowing moments after the ferry started to roll.(Snip) On Thursday, the semi-official Yonhap News Agency reported that police now believe the messages supposedly sent after the ferry sank were fake.

A Nebraska toddler had his eye on the prize when he slipped out of his home and wound up inside a claw machine at a nearby arcade. Ashley Ireland had called police and begun a frantic search for her son, Kael, after he went missing from her apartment on Monday afternoon. The three-year-old had managed to open the front door and walk to the nearby amusement arcade, where he was found playing with stuffed toys inside one of the machines.

KUALA LUMPUR: A CREW member of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 made a desperate call from his mobile phone as the plane was flying low near Penang, the morning it went missing. The latest breakthrough in the ongoing criminal investigation traced the source of the call to co-pilot Fariq Abdul Hamid´s phone.

Obama Lets N.S.A. Exploit
Some Internet Flaws, Officials Say

WASHINGTON — Stepping into a heated debate within the nation’s intelligence agencies, President Obama has decided that when the National Security Agency discovers major flaws in Internet security, it should — in most circumstances — reveal them to assure that they will be fixed, rather than keep mum so that the flaws can be used in espionage or cyberattacks, senior administration officials said Saturday. But Mr. Obama carved a broad exception for “a clear national security or law enforcement need,” the officials said, a loophole that is likely to allow the N.S.A. to continue to exploit security flaws both to crack

BREAKING NEWS: BLM ends

LAS VEGAS -- The Bureau of Land Management has announced it will stop the roundup of cattle owned by rancher Cliven Bundy. The BLM says the animals have been illegally grazing on public lands for 20 years. The BLM made the announcement Saturday morning, a week after rangers started gathering the animals from land near Gold Butte. The agency says it is concerned about the safety of its employees and the public. Earlier this week, BLM officers and supporters of the Bundy family were involved in a scuffle. Cliven Bundy´s son, Ammon Bundy, was tased twice by federal agents. Another woman said

In a profile of Press Secretary Jay Carney appearing in the magazine Washingtonian Mom, this photo of the loving family appears:(Snip for photo)Cute, isn’t it? But, as savvy Twitter users noticed almost immediately, the picture is photoshopped, and not very well at that. The right side of the book case is a mirror image of the left, which poses a slight problem. A problem I like to call “disembodied finger of a child floating in air”! It’s a common photoshop mistake:

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The
