Nervy Romney Beats Bewildered
Obama Up And Down The Field

Investor's Business Daily, by Charles Krauthammer

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 10/4/2012 10:59:02 PM

It was the biggest rout since Agincourt. If you insist, since the Carter-Reagan debate. With a remarkable display of confidence, knowledge and nerve, Mitt Romney won the first 2012 debate going away. Romney didn't just demonstrate authoritative command of a myriad of domestic issues. He was nervy about it, taking the president on frontally, not just relentlessly attacking, but answering every charge leveled against him — with a three-point rebuttal. And he pulled off a tactical coup by coming right out of the box to undo millions of dollars' worth of negative ads that painted him, personally, as Gordon Gekko

"Can this be the hip, cool, in-control guy his acolytes and the media have been telling us about?"

I like Charles and often I find myself agreeing with him. In this case, however, shouldn't the sentence read:

"Can this be the hip, cool, in-control guy his acolytes IN the media have been telling us about?"

Nah. Make it "sycophants in and out of media."

I have usually enjoyed and respected Krauthammer's opinions, but he has sniped at Romney too much in the past. With this column, he redeems himself. A little.

It is what happens when you take a guy of average intelligence and put him in a debate with nothing but sound bites to utter. Knowing what questions are going to be asked is no advantage when all you can do is recite prepared responses but do not have sufficient thinking capacity to handle deviations from the program. Obama was bewildered when he found himself on his own. Dr. K is wrong if he thinks this has not always been apparent. If you buy the media hogwash then you too would be bewildered.

Thats the problem with relying on these media assisted extreme caricatures. They are easy to deflate for a candidate who has fought his way to the top of his Party's nomination process. Then, you have nothing left and the public begins to doubt everything you say. But, thankfully the innate arrogance of Liberals prevents them from ever learning anything new and worthwhile.

Funny how so many of the conservative punditry have jumped on the Romney bandwagon. America still loves a winner. That's okay, though. At least perhaps now they'll stop enabling the Obama campaign.

Not one for pundits and punditry, I am still happy to see them come on board. Even Bill Kristol seems to be trying to redeem himself. That will be a tough sell. He did himself a lot of damage with his lapses in judgment.

These people do what they do. They chatter. I'd rather have them with us than against us.

Great article by Krauthammer, too bad it took him so long to recognize who Mitt Romney is. But better late than never. What #5 and #8 said. As for Kristol, he has NO redeeming value and went on the Dennis Miller show yesterday and was STILL tsk, tsking about Mitt Romney. Pathetic.

Don't leave it to someone else. You get that senior to the polls. You get that unemployed college kid to vote for job creation.

I answered this in the prior post.....

obama didn't have an audience to give him direction and approval....

Jimmy -- public television dude -- told the audience to refrain from any comments -- so the zero was out there all alone.... Just "his" words. No affirmative action prof to prop him up...no media to spin his lies...no direction from valerie jarret and SOROS....

BTW -- heard anything from ACORN? It's getting close to November 6th and they are ready to do whatever damage they can....

In conjunction with #13, BO is a Hollyweird president. He's playing a part. He has no clue as to what this Country is really about, who we are as a people, and how the economy works.

But he has his ideological script and that's what he works from. But without a fawning audience, like a vain actor, he is out of character. Eastwood, knowing his craft so well, recognized what BO is, a bad actor. An empty chair.

As to Romney, knowing his life story of successes, I KNEW he had to be capable of this type of focus. It's his own fault that he didn't place it front and center until now. Of course the unfiltered venue helped. He could directly confront BO, who was catastrophically unprepared. But even if he had been prepared, there was really no answer to Romney's challenge because BO's history is one of gross incompetence and failure. Romney pushed through BO's soundbite strategy and got to reality. The reality of BO is pathetic.

That's why BO lost so badly. Without his press shield he is a useless leader. His mediocre speaking abilities were revealed. His soaring intelligence gasping in the dust. His petulant narcissism laid bare. BO never was anything special but now everyone knows it.

What I would like to see in the next debate:

Mr. President…I do not know which of your numerous advisors are feeding you that erroneous information, if I were you I would remove them from the government payroll.
After the election there is likely to be an opening for him as chief deceiver at NBC.

I agree with John Sununu. If you're not that bright, all the prep in the world won't help. In Obie's case, he thinks he is smarter than he is, which is his curse. He doesn't have the solid database of knowledge from which to draw in a debate. Having been given a pass by the media - the now defunct WH press conferences were a joke - and probably not getting much criticism from his toadies, who are afraid of his vicious petulance, he lives in a mental cave.

Jim Lehrer and Mitt Romney invaded his cave the other night and he was without weapons.

I watched the entire debate online last night. It was not the split screen version. Romney won handily, but the notion that President Obama was off his game does not jibe with the perfomance I saw. Given the lousy record he has to defend, Obama did alright. Romney definitely won, but the reviews of President Obama's performance are perplexing.

Romney didn't even have to be at the top of his game to make his pathetic opponent look like a third grader trying to get through a history test. Obama had no facts that were true and his attacks fell short every time. I hope he at least got to play a little golf in Vegas, otherwise it was a wasted trip.

Can't wait until the foreign policy debate, which is going to separate the adults from the crybabies. The error that Obama, Hillary and Susan Rice made concerning the attack in Libya, and the amateurish, obvious attempt at a cover up makes Jimmy Carter look like Napoleon. Their policies around the rest of the world are just as bad, they just haven't had them blow up in their faces yet.

It isn't so complicated, it's not. Obama was taking the debate in stride, and to smooth out his nerves before hand, he smoked one of his marijuana blunts. He had his stupid smirk on; he was tripping on his "illegal smile".

He was too stoned to care!

Obama only knows his campaign’s spin. For example:

During a speech, Romney says, “Cutting tax rates across the board will create millions of new jobs, which will generate increased tax revenues to help reduce the deficit.” (paraphrased)

The Obama campaign releases an ad saying, “Romney wants to give millionaires and billionaires a $5billion tax cut.”

An Obama Super-PAC ad says, “Romney will raise taxes on the middle class, while cutting taxes for millionaires and billionaires like him.”

Because his debate prep handlers want him to stay “on message”, they prompt him on the campaign’s talking points, without telling him what Romney actually said.

During the debate, when Obama says, “Romney wants to cut taxes for the rich by $5billion,” Romney responds by saying, “That’s not my position. What I’ve said all along is…” [and explains his position.] Obama is caught off-guard and has no response.

After the debate, Obama’s handlers tell him to go on the attack. During a speech to partisan supporters the next morning he says, “Romney lied last night. For months he has supported a $5billion tax cut for the rich, now, with 5 weeks to go, he’s changing his position.”

#22 the LSM are clinging to their "off his game" meme, even going so far as to blame thin air (!), because if it wasn't his game it's even more obvious how ridiculous his ideas and policies are.

That and his "facts" that are made up, come to think of it, out of thin air. How appropo.

That said, I do think he was on something, but that's not relevant because he always is. I think there has not been a day of his life without some mood altering substance.

What the hiring class requires is certainty that their taxes, their energy costs, and their medical care plan costs will not go up. Someone said that the business of America is business, and another said that he had never been offered a job by a poor man.

In his misguided search for "fairness", the President ignores these maxims to our national detriment.

Sununu was right. Wednesday night is a perfect illustration of what happens when you match up affirmative action "smarts" against real smarts. Romney is one of the most decent men you will ever meet. That is why the press and Obama have worked so hard to portray him as a hard-hearted plutocrat. Romney is also one of the most brilliant men you'll ever meet. He is one of only 15 people ever to earn the joint law and business graduate degrees as Harvard. And, he wound up at the top of both the law and business school classes while doing them simultaneously. I think he had a couple of kids at the time, too. But, Obama and the press have tried to paint him as a bumbling fool. Lying SOBs.

Re #31 the blogger at Hillbuzz knows a lot about Obie because he is in Chicago and has many contacts there.

Obie was pretty notorious in that town before he moved into the White House. His habits, his sexual proclivities, what, where and with whom. He was not discreet. So he is remembered by a lot of people he probably wishes would forget about that part of his life.

RIYADH - Russian President Vladimir Putin called U.S. President Barack Obama on Friday to discuss a U.S. diplomatic proposal for Ukraine, the White House said, adding that Obama told him that Russia must pull back its troops and not move deeper into Ukraine. It was believed to have been the first direct conversation between Obama and Putin since the United States and its European allies began imposing sanctions on Putin´s inner circle and threatened to penalize key sectors of Russia´s economy. Russia´s reinforcement of troops near Ukraine has brought the total forces there to as many as 40,000, U.S. officials estimated on

While President Obama said he avoided discussing “social schisms” during his meeting with Pope Francis, the Vatican’s official readout said discussion turned to “the exercise of the rights to religious freedom, life and conscientious objection, as well as the issue of immigration reform.” “On the one hand, you’ve got the bishop of Rome, the Holy See, of whom a billion co-religionists believe

VATICAN CITY – President Barack Obama and the Vatican gave distinctly different accounts of the president´s audience with Pope Francis on Thursday, with Obama stressing their common ground on poverty and inequality but Vatican officials emphasizing concerns over Obama´s health care law, which mandates contraception coverage. Obama described himself as "incredibly moved" by his nearly hour-long session with the popular pontiff. He said the two spent the most time discussing the plight of the poor and the marginalized as well as regions of conflict and the elusive nature of peace around the world.

No Barack Obama, Pope

President Obama´s first salary as a community organizer was paid by a Catholic group and his earliest social justice work was rooted in Catholic social doctrine. He identified with Cardinal Joseph Bernardin, then Chicago´s archbishop, whose consistent ethic of life encompassed a dedication to the poor, a concern over the human costs of war, and opposition to the death penalty. You could imagine that at his meeting with Pope Francis on Thursday, the president was tempted to ask: Why can´t these American bishops get along with me? Or, perhaps more humbly: Holy Father, what can I do to make these

A small study that examined brains from children who died found abnormal patterns of cell growth in autistic children. The research bolsters evidence that something before birth might cause autism, at least in some cases. Clusters of disorganized brain cells were discovered in tissue samples from brain regions important for regulating social functioning, emotions and communication - which can all be troublesome for children with autism.(Snip)The authors said the clusters, detected with sophisticated lab tests, are likely defects that occurred during the second or third trimesters of pregnancy.

A long-running child custody case took a dramatic turn Tuesday, when a Massachusetts juvenile court judge awarded permanent custody of teenager Justina Pelletier to the state Department of Children and Families. The ruling by Judge Joseph Johnston means the 15-year-old will probably stay in state custody until her 18th birthday unless her parents can prove they are fit to care for their child. The judge’s four-page decision, which was provided to the Globe, was remarkable for its detail and forcefulness. Johnston faulted Connecticut’s child protection agency for its failure to get involved in a case involving a child from its state, and

Imagine if a former Republican presidential candidate and U.S. senator had called a current Republican president a delusional liar whose programs are wasteful. Would the mainstream media not be all over the story? Such a person would be interviewed at length by Wolf Blitzer on CNN as well as made the rounds of the morning talk shows and the Sunday news programs as well. The media buzz would be red hot on this topic for days extending into weeks. Well, there is such a person but because he is a Democrat saying these things about President Obama, we can expect

After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

A startling rift appeared Tuesday on the Supreme Court as the three female Justices came out swinging like Brunnhildes — women warriors — for what they erroneously labeled an “entitlement” to employer-provided contraceptives and morning-after pills. The Justices were hearing oral arguments in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., a case hyped by the Democratic Party as a test for women’s rights. Justices Kagan, Ginsberg, and Sotomayor sprang on Hobby Lobby’s attorney , interrupting his every sentence and pummeling him with questions taken right out of the Democratic Party’s “war on women” playbook. That playbook was laid out in a

Las Vegas - Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft former Florida governor Jeb Bush into the 2016 presidential race, courting him and his intimates and starting talks on fundraising strategy. Concerned that the George Washington Bridge traffic scandal has damaged New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s political standing and alarmed by the steady rise of Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), prominent donors, conservative leaders and longtime operatives say they consider Bush the GOP’s brightest hope to win back the White House.

The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama. From criticism of her trip to China to a recent “tell-all” by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin in the New Republic about Obama’s allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed. As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because? Worse, according to a former (anonymous) staffer, there was no barometer for meeting Obama’s high standards. “The first lady having

Where’s the beef? That’s what the carnivores were wondering as they arrived at the Boathouse in Central Park for the “Noah” party. The buffet tables were loaded with various forms of edible vegetable matter, but there was no meat, fish or cheese — because director Darren Aronofsky is vegan, as was the hero of his biblical epic, as played by Russell Crowe. To underscore the point in the movie, which also stars Emma Watson and Jennifer Connelly, villain Tubal-cain (Ray Winstone) eagerly bites the head off an unidentified reptile and devours it raw. Meat = evil. Got it. As hungry Boathouse guests bellied

A University of Virginia student arrested by Alcoholic Beverage Control agents who wrongly believed she´d illegally bought beer when in fact she only had bottled water is seeking $40 million in a lawsuit filed Tuesday. Elizabeth K. Daly, 21, alleges malicious prosecution, six counts of assault and battery and failure to appropriately train ABC agents in the suit which names the state and seven agents involved in her arrest. (Snip) Daly claimed she attempted to flee from the agents because neither were in uniform, one pulled a gun, and the other tried to smash her car window with a flashlight. ´My

A "vast majority" of Mitt Romney donors, establishment pooh-bahs, and an anti-conservative consultant who is the epitome of permanent political class want former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush to run for president in 2016. Bush was in Las Vegas this week meeting with Sheldon Adelson, and, according to the Post, "many if not most of 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney’s major donors are reaching out to Bush and his confidants with phone calls, e-mails and invitations to meet." One bundler even said that a "vast majority” of "Romney’s top 100 donors would back Bush." The Post also noted that in the meantime "Bush’s

Obamacare supporters are taking a bit of a victory lap today after yesterday’s administration announcement that six million people have signed up for private plans under the law, equaling the revised projection put out by the Congressional Budget Office after the botched launch of the exchanges last October. It’s a weak cause for celebration, given that success, according to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, was originally "at least" seven million people getting covered under the law by the end of March. And as an Obamacare factoid, the six million sign-ups figure just doesn’t tell us all that much

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

Former U.S. Senator Bob Kerrey thinks President Barack Obama, a fellow Democrat, was re-elected in 2012 because he ´sucked less´ than former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. The Nebraskan straight-talker told MailOnline in an exclusive interview that Obama isn´t up to the job of bringing liberals and conservatives to the table to rescue America´s slowly choking entitlement programs. And Obama, he said Wednesday in his Manhattan office, knew full well he was lying when he promised that the Affordable Care Act would allow Americans to keep insurance plans they liked. ´He had to know he was misleading the audience,´ Kerrey said
