Obama went aggressive –
and looked offensive

Telegraph [UK], by Janet Daley

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 10/17/2012 5:08:26 AM

So he decided to make up for being too passive last time. That was predictable enough. In fact, everybody and his wife was predicting that Barack Obama would go on the offence for this one and that's exactly what he did. But there is an important difference between between being on the offensive and being offensive which his advisers seemed to have missed. Time and again, he interrupted both Romney and the chairman. He may not have sniggered and laughed out loud but there was definitely an air of the Joe Biden playbook here. It was a messier debate all

Comments:
Good one by Ms. Daley, who was out with her remarks almost as soon as the debate was at its end.

0bama attacked like Rambo. But, with no ammo he was about as effective as Barney Fife. He seemed to have seen the questions in advance. He even needed CPR from the 'moderator' and didn't fool anyone with the same old lies we've heard for the last four years.

Romney clearly won the debate. He held his composure, and took the tag team attack in stride. He threw 0bama a few bombs, made his points, and did not give up any ground.

I thought obama's constant lying was disgraceful. Especially the one about drilling permits on federal land, easily debunked.

When these "pundits" grade debates, they should take points off for mendacious behaviour like this. Nobody would want their child to lie like this. Who wants a lying POTUS?

We win every debate each time our candidates remind Americans what the hard ecomomic truths are. The Lightbringer and his ilk want noone to hear that truth, at any costs, so we win because both Romney and Ryan have been relentless on bringing up the 800 lb gorilla that is our current existance.

Obama is incompetent and a liar. About 2% of the voters (according to polls) are calling themselves undecided. These are low information voters, obviously, and I am tired of the media catering to them like they matter. Unless you are a kool aid drinking liberal moonbat you can't possibly be undecided about this election and that will become clear on November 6.

Having read some of the replies below the article, I'm certainly glad that Brits can't vote in our elections. You'd think that, given the mess socialism has made in their country, they'd have a clue. As usual, government handouts trump reality and common sense.

obama went aggressive -- but -- he looked obnoxious....

President Romney looked in control -- with exception when crowley tackled him from the side/lines.

Remember when stephanopolous (sp?) helped obama when obama called himself a muslim? Ole steph blurred out "Christian" quickly....

WE know what WE get when the media is in control....

I watched on and off, and finally muted the sound when the One spoke. Judging by his gestures I assumed he went into professorial mode which is so booooring.

He does not look well. Was the American electorate provided with his most recent health report? I know I say medical reports on Romney and Ryan, but none on O. Does he not have to comply with federal election mandates? Something is seriously wrong with this man's health. I do not think he is physically capable of being the Leader of the Free World. So depressing that we have a yellow Obama press that will not investigate a matter that is this crucial to the safety of our country.

#6, they sound like visitors from the Guardian. Not all Britons are socialists. Perhaps you haven't noticed the right-leaning law-changes Cameron and his coalition government have been making lately.

Note: it's a coalition with the Lib-Dems. Thirteen years of straight Labour is a bit difficult to dig out. You see what a time we are having digging out Obama. after only four years

To see what real socialists are like, I recommend DemocraticUnderground.com. Their debate remarks today will be edifying. And they can vote in our elections.

Right #11. Call it intuition, ESP or eye-analysis-you are correct. His look is one of panic and anger the election is this close. He looks so evil, like there is no level he won't stoop to, nothing he won't put Americans through, to have his way. He's akin to the German soldier in "Saving Private Ryan"-inserting the dagger, yet in his version, telling us all to smile while he twists.

Obama is an ideologue-made his bed. His mission reminds of the old Floyd song, "Set the controls for the heart of the sun". That's what he has done, with his flawed theories and still thinks he deserves another term! ha! Don't think so.

Am I the only one that thought Romney made a mistake to ask Obama questions directly? It invited his lies and took away his time. At that point, it was clear Crowly wasnt going to let Romney get to his point. Many times the interruptions only proved to help Obama.

And I agree, if you can possibly still be undecided, you haven't been paying attention and you should stay home!

Did anyone besides me notice how "whinny" Obama sounded? When pressed his voice would go into a higher pitch. I kept expecting him to cover his ears and stomp his foot. I really wanted someone to ask him if he has ever balanced a checkbook or mowed his own lawn.

o's rebuttals were stylistically effective, but he couldn't defend his record, as Romney bullet-pointed him to an agonizing death. If Romney's favorables are +8, as Gallup claims, and women are warming to him, 0 is toast.

What struck me were the constant halts in the serpent's speech, as if he were indeed listening to some ear prompting.

And what is this business of Crowley's visiting the WH last Sunday? Is there a record? Breitbarters need to get on that story!

Despite all this, our admirable future President Mitt Romney won it going away.

Janet Daley is one of the smarter people in the world, so this concise evaluation carries a lot of weight. She represents an educated, sophisticated mind and clear thinking. A clear eye.

Perhaps the most telling remark that Romney made was that the President was "great as a speaker" – that his vision for America was fine but that his policies did not work. There is the nub of it: what has been wrong with the Obama presidency is that it has been all rhetoric and very little effectual action. And what action there has been – on Obamacare – will discourage job creation and slow the the growth of the economy. The Republican contender only needed a draw to maintain his momentum but he got a win. Round two to Romney.

A town hall meeting with a New York crowd at a Long Island university. Oh, brother!

Obama came across as a nasty piece of work, dark and angry and lying like a pro. Same old, same old class warfare and empty promises. Scored well with DU types.

Romney related very well to those who asked questions and presented himself as pro-American, pro-business and very able to tackle our problems. He scored well with women and college crowd, I think.

Crowley's (never heard it pronounced crow-lee before) partisanship was obvious. She interrupted Romney a couple of times just as he was scoring major points. Her backup of Rose Garden terror word was waaaay over the line. During this Rose Garden back and forth Obama's ''Proceed Governor.'' with hate in his eyes was just plain obnoxious.

There are rumbles that Obama is planning a major strike in North Africa. He's placed special operations strike forces on standby. Fasten your seat belts.

Romney was terrific , as usual.
His calm demeanor and mastery of all subjects reminded me of Reagan , one time he even sounded like him.
Obama on the other hand seemed to yell his answers
in an upper octave whine
that I feared would make the dog bark.
My wife had some neighbor ladies over to work on a project.
I had the tv on alternating between the game and the debate.
The women observed that Obama has mean eyes that fit his mean personality.
One woman was fixated on his " creepy, ET hands ".
Americans are busy and most of them don't have time to watch the news or keep up with political events.
Debates expose them to actual candidates , not the caricatures created by the media .
I think for some of these women , it was their first real exposure to both Romney and Obama.
I was unsure of some of their political persuasions prior to last night, but, they left our house repulsed by the anger
and behavior of Obama ( as one observed-he acts like he hasn't been president for the last 4 years )
and reassured by the presidential character of Romney.
Romney also looked macho and strong and I really liked that he
got tough with the cry baby.
Crowley was awful , simply awful.
She would not allow Romney to finish his points-getting another moronic question from the idiots was more important than
allowing a future president to explain his plans.

Obama was nauseating. Do you know why? Because lying is a boundary violation and it makes one sick... nauseated.

Romney prosecuted his case last night like an expert lawyer. I like him even more today and I suspect the crowds at his stops today will be louder and larger than ever.

I agree with others here, it seemed like Øbama have have been "prompted" by something this time. He wasn't stammering like he usually does when he doesn't have his teleprompter in front of him. Some kind of super-secret earpiece or new kind of eye-display that we can't see? We can all imagine Axlegrease fitting him with something to make it easier to cheat during the debate. I also agree that Øbama's voice sounded higher-pitched and squeaky. I thought he was buzzing from maybe 5 or 10 cups of coffee or maybe something illegal given to him by Axlegrease. He looks sickly lately.

obama keeps referring to Romney and his policies as if he, obama, is the challenger and Romney has been president the last four years. His side keeps insisting that Romney give details, yet we have no specifics from them on what they plan to do the next 4 years. We assume that obit will continue to destroy America, but most of his voters, the idiot class, don't know that. Those precious undecideds don't know and even they don't ask. obit has abandoned hope and change for Romney's specifics. If he can't give specifics, you must give me four mo' years.

I was happy to see the Luntz focus groups see all the wonderful potential in Romney after the debate; most of them voted for 0bama were sorely disappointed in him. 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?

I saw real anger and hate in his eyes for Romney a couple of times. zippy's few attempts to be animated were so thin and baseless to the particular moment of the debate.

He cannot hold his own against Romney with his lack of a record.

Romney had the stage presence and the facts. zippy was trying to defend a windmill of an administration - empty air, empty suit, empty chair.

Barry Obama is nothing more than an angry black man who thinks he got a raw deal from the world of whitey and is fixated only on revenge. He hasn't been able to hide that side of himself for the past year when his many illegal actions and failures started to catch up with him.

He is of low quality lineage and his friends and companions are of like character (or lack thereof.) What a hateful, nasty human being. I hope the liberals are over their social experimentation for a while but that would be like flies getting over cowpies.

Bottom line, as the old Marine in the Frank Luntz focus group on Fox New Channel said last night following the debate, "Obama has been bullsh-ting the American people".

Obviously from the polls and the focus groups immediate responses following the debate, Obama's bullsh-iting is now catching up to him.

Even by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change´s own lamentable standards, its new report--by Working Group III of the Fifth Assessment Report--makes no sense whatsoever. [Snip] Before the report´s formal release, US officials--who had seen an earlier draft--wrote to the United Nations demanding it be amended. "The discussion of the economic costs of mitigation is too narrow and does not incorporate co-benefits of action." Loosely translated this means: "If we admit how much we´re spending to such little purpose, the taxpaying public is going to kill us." So the report was duly amended to suggest that the benefits of wind turbines, solar panels,

Just after Mars reaches its closest point to earth in six years, a distance of a mere 57.4 million miles, a total lunar eclipse will spectacularly change the colour of the moon. But don´t get too twitchy with the curtains in the early hours--only people in north and south America will be able to see it with the naked eye. If you live in the UK, mainland Europe or most of the rest of the world by far your best chance of seeing the eclipse is right

If there was a standard operating manual for the secret services of the world´s dodgier regimes, it would no doubt omit any mention of the term "agent provocateur". In Russia, Burma, Iran et al, state-backed agents never get involved in causing trouble. Instead, there are only "patriotic local citizens", who, unable to contain themselves, rise up in righteous indignation against those who might betray the nation. That, if Russia is to be believed, is exactly what it happening in eastern Ukraine right now. According to a statement this morning from the Russian foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, there are "no Russian

When William Hague, our Foreign Secretary, warns that Russia is quietly orchestrating anti-government protests in eastern Ukraine, his words should be taken as a wake-up call to all those other EU foreign ministers who are none too keen on standing up to Russian President Vladimir Putin´s newfound enthusiasm for Tsarist-style military adventures. [Snip] While both Mr Kerry and Mr Hague are coy about precisely how they know the Russians are up to no good in Ukraine, it is no secret that the FSB, Russia´s equivalent of the CIA, is committed to keeping Ukraine in a state of heightened instability for

The United Nations (UN) has delivered its latest verdict on the measures necessary to save the world from global warming and the news is as grim as it is predictable and wearisomely familiar: More regulation from "experts", technocrats and bureaucrats at supranational organisations, such as the one whose initials begin with U and end with N. [Snip] More nuclear power (with shale gas used as a transitional fuel to replace coal). The abandonment of fossil fuels. Less meat consumption. A single, globally-regulated price for carbon dioxide. More local-government-enforced walking, cycling and public transportation. More back-door wealth redistribution from the West

Big Brother isn´t watching you--but he is listening. The S.C. Department of Health and Human Services, one of the largest, costliest agencies in state government, pays Clemson University´s Social Analytics Institute $50,000 a year to "scrape data" from 150 million public, real-time feeds each day and report back to the agency what people on the Internet are talking about. That includes Medicaid patients who may be complaining about the application process on Twitter or bloggers who criticize Gov. Nikki Haley´s decision to reject Obamacare´s Medicaid expansion. But they say they´re doing this "social listening" in the name of customer service,

What is Vladimir Putin’s game? The recent unrest in eastern Ukraine has been presented by the Kremlin as an autonomous phenomenon, an upsurge of patriotic feeling among embattled ethnic Russians who long for the protection of the Motherland against what they see as a neo-nationalist regime in Kiev. It may be true that the initial impulse came from locals acting without Russia’s direct involvement. But it is becoming clear that, just as in Crimea, many of the “separatists” are not just taking their orders from Moscow, but are very probably Russian troops in paper-thin disguise. The key difference is that,

Ireland, once a rock-solid Christian country, has now become so intolerant of Christian beliefs that its leading opponent of gay marriage may be forced to leave the country because of fears for his personal safety. After repeated threats and obscene verbal attacks, John Waters, a nationally-known newspaper columnist, author and broadcaster who supports Christian family traditions, says he is now unable to go into the centre of Dublin at night because he fears for his own safety. The attacks began after Waters threatened the state-owned broadcaster RTE with legal action after a drag queen called ‘Panti Bliss’ appeared on a television programme

A huge forest fire raging in a Chilean city has claimed eleven lives and destroyed 1,000 buildings. Eleven deaths have already been confirmed as the catastrophic fire continues to engulf the port city of Valparaiso. The armed forces have been called in to maintain law and order in the city while thousands of people were evacuated amid warnings that the death toll will rise further. Huge numbers of homes - many in the steep hills around the city itself--as well as a women´s prison were emptied of their residents in a bid to save them from the destruction.

On Fox News Sunday, political analyst Brit Hume said that Eric Holder’s claim that his treatment at the hands of Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) at a House hearing this week was unprecedented toward an Attorney General, made him a “crybaby,” and that he and President Barack Obama had in fact benefited “enormously” from being the first African Americans in their respective positions. “This strikes me as kinda crybaby stuff from Holder,” Hume said. “My sense about this is both Eric Holder and Barack Obama have benefited politically enormously from the fact that they are African American and the first to

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre.

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.
