Cool Hand Barry
New York Times, by Charles Blow

Original Article

Posted By:abuela10, 10/4/2012 5:44:12 AM

Well, that was odd. President Obama’s stylistic strategy during Wednesday night’s debate seemed to be to try to stay right above the rancor, to appear dignified, presidential. The problem with that approach is that the line between dignified and presidential and anodyne and weak is the width of a cat’s hair. Romney, on the other hand, went on the attack, interrupting and rambling on, which to some will read as confidence and command of the facts, even if many of his statements were riddled with the, um, nonfactual.

Comments:
What a blowhard. The MSM spin begins

Jon Kary (served in Vietnam) did a wonderful job helping obama to prepare for this debate. Let us hope he is chosen to help for the next two debates.

You knew Obama was in for a long night when he opened his very first sentence with his tired same ol same old "It was Bush's fault" talking point.Then after being allowed to ramble and attack Romney Lehrer made an attempt to change the subject so Mitt could not respond to the false attack (The often repeated and tired 5 trillion dollar tax hike on the middle class) and Obama could claim he won the question.

Mitt showed why he was so successful in business, he refused to play squirrel. He simply ignored lehrer and hit Obama point by point.

Obama rolled his eyes, looked around the room, I'll bet he even checked his watch. By the end he was visibly agitated and started to try and interrupt Mitt. Miy did not let him.

Obama is used to a room full of sycophants who toady to his every utterance as if it came from a mountain written in stone. Last night he was a five year old getting scolded for copying someone elses homework. Great debate for Mitt.

I think Romney unsettled 0bama during his opening remark with the kind words about 0bama's wedding anniversary - B0 just looked at his feet. And, thankfully, it didn't get any better for B0 all night although Jim Lehrer did his best to throw it B0's way.

If anyone was rambling on, it was Obama who couldn't stay focussed on the subject at hand. He rambled from one subject o the other in search of something that would engage his mind. He found nothing that would work.

No Mr. Blow (An apt name if ever I heard one). The Romeny's responses to Zippy's lies were not "riddled with the, um, nonfactual." Your problem seems to stem from the fact that you've had your lips surgically attached to Zippy's posterior so long that you don't recognize actual facts when they walk up and slap you in the face. But don't feel so all alone. Most of your colegues at the "Fishwrap of Record" suffer from the ailment. And I'm afraid its terminal albeit slow in coming.

I'm glad some other posters saw Lehrer trying to help Zerobama. Shortly into the debate after Zero made his points on one topic, Lehrer quickly tried to change the subject so Romney could not respond to Zero.

Romney wasn't having it and DID respond, but immediately after Romney finished, Lehrer turned to Zero and said "would you like to respond to that?" instead of trying to change the topic like he did with Romney.

Lehrer was clearly out of his league with Romney, aside from the fact that he has aged poorly to the point of looking like a cadaver.

Having Lehrer out there as referee reminds me of football games in Austin where all the referees are graduates of the University of Texas. Winning in that environment is a real accomplishment. Good for Romney.

But remember, the remaining debates will have all liberal panels instead of one monitor. Beginning today these liberals will start planning their tactics to assure they protect Obama in the next debate and attempt to make Romney look as bad as they can.

The next debate is going to get ugly. Liberals will sacrifice ethics, reputation, and even personal dignity to further liberalism. And Romney now poses the biggest threat to the agenda.

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Democrat Anthony Weiner said that the new sexting firestorm that set his City Hall campaign reeling last week will in the end make him a stronger mayor and better able to deliver for Staten Island and the rest of the city. "I´m going to be a successful mayor because of it, because it´s going to give me a level of independence," he told the Advance in an exclusive interview.

The 60 million yuan (£6.4 million) Jibaozhai Museum, located in Jizhou, a city in the northern province of Hebei, opened in 2010 with its 12 exhibition halls packed with apparently unique cultural gems. But the museum’s collection, while extensive, appears ultimately to have been flawed. On Monday, the museum’s ticket offices were shut amid claims that many of the exhibits were in fact knock-offs which had been bought for between 100 yuan (£10.70) and 2,000 yuan (£215). The museum’s public humiliation began earlier this month when Ma Boyong, a Chinese writer,

MSNBC came in a distant fourth place in the cable news ratings during the George Zimmerman verdict Saturday night despite three weeks of extensive trial coverage, Politico reports. In the 10-11 p.m. hour Saturday night, when Zimmerman was acquitted in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, MSNBC had just 1,298,000 total viewers according to the preliminary ratings. First-place Fox News (3,682,000) had nearly three times as many, and MSNBC was also far behind HLN (2,203,000 viewers) and runner-up CNN (3,407,000).

The Side Effects of Delaying Obamacare

The Obama administration has decided to delay until 2015 its enforcement of the employer mandate, a provision in its health-care law that requires businesses to provide insurance to employees. Assistant Treasury Secretary Mark J. Mazur announced the change in a statement on Tuesday, noting the administration’s concern that businesses won’t be ready to comply. My colleague Chris Flavelle writes that the decision boosts the odds that other groups will be able to win further changes to the law, such as eliminating the excise tax on medical devices. It may also create some stress on the implementation

Many low-income families receive government assistance to help them purchase food and housing. Diapers are another story, a new study suggests. In what they are calling the first peer-reviewed study to quantify diaper need, Yale University researchers have found nearly a third of mothers cannot afford to purchase their infants diapers, raising health risks for not only babies but for moms who become stressed over the finances. "Notably absent from the antipoverty efforts targeting families is an essential staple for the health of children, diapers," wrote the researchers, led by Dr. Megan Smith,

Mideast: The sequester has "cost jobs," says President Obama, and "gutted investments in education and science and medical research." But somehow he´s earmarked $500 million for Hamas terrorists. Circumventing Congress and with no fanfare, President Obama last week issued an executive order enabling him to send an additional $500 million directly to the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank — much of which you can bet will wind up going to the Iranian-backed Hamas terrorist organization. According to Obama, "it is important to the national security interests of the United States to waive the provisions of" Congress´ legislative restrictions "in
