A new, improved Barack Obama shows
up for the second debate but fails
to halt Mitt Romney's momentum

Daily Mail [UK], by Toby Harnden

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 10/17/2012 8:41:34 AM

President Barack Obama needed a game-changing night here in Hampstead, New York and Mitt Romney made sure he didn't get it. Over the 90 minutes, Obama might have edged it--just--but strategically he did little if anything to blunt Romney's growing advantage. Just as Al Gore over-compensated for his poor first debate in 2000, we saw a completely different Obama this time around. He had clearly had some intensive coaching from his debate prep team and was acting under orders to change everything. Romney strategist Stuart Stevens quipped afterwards that he became 'Joe Biden without the charm'. The problem is tha

I didn't think Biden was charming at all. I think he looked insane.

Little Georgie and ABC trotted out Biden this morning and he stumbled around "my guy".

Then Ryan cleaned his clock a second time. More concise, precise and truthful.

One of the greatest problems with our democratic system is that it may tempt the casual participant to confuse those who are capable of governing with those who are simply driven to control others.

The party of small government and personal responsibility does not seem to be the 'crazy' magnet that the Dem. Party is.

What dictator was ever in favor of limited government ?

I didn't watch the debate on TV but listened to it on the radio. When Øbama first spoke I could tell something was different. His voice sounded higher-pitched and squeaky, like he was jacked-up on 5 cups of coffee or probably something illegal given to him by Axlegrease. Commissar ValJar must have screamed at Barry "You better be awake this time, buster, or it's all over". Then when they mentioned the venue was full of College-age kids "with their own questions" I knew it was a setup along with CNN shill Candy Crowley as "moderator", I knew she was "one of theirs". So we all know the deck was stacked against Romney and he still gave a great performance. Øbama came across as a pushy, nasty creep and it was easy to identify all the lies he apparently made up on the spot during the debate. This will only firm up Mitt's base and increase his supporters resolve.

Delingpole quits Telegraph ahead

Green-baiter James Delingpole has quit his blog at Telegraph with customary flair: ‘Today is the sad day when I must bid you all farewell. I have been appointed Chief Sustainability Consultant at the Department of Energy and Climate Change, working directly to one of my all-time-heroes Ed Davey, with a juicy, taxpayer-funded salary, a ring-fenced pension and a bio-fuel-powered Aston-Martin just like the Prince of Wales’s.

There are not many films about the Second World War which I will refuse to watch. But with his new Nazi art heist epic George Clooney may actually have made an unwatchable piece of cinema about that most fascinating of conflicts. The reviews for The Monuments Men have been dire. [Snip] Apparently the extremely simplistic film even contains a scene in which Clooney´s character explains, with the aid of a large map and a stick, where Europe is and what the Nazis are up to. He explains this to the President Roosevelt character. In the Oval Office.

Princes William and Harry today joined the flood relief effort by helping soldiers to lay sandbags in Datchet. The royal brothers secretly joined members of Harry´s Household Cavalry regiment to shore up the defences just a stone´s throw from the Queen´s residence, Windsor Castle. [Snip] According to sources, William and Harry had been keen to play a part for some days but did not want to publicise their presence for fear of distracting from the crisis facing householders. They joined military personnel at 6am this morning and had hoped to stay working all day. But by mid morning, word of

Britain faces a ‘multi-pronged attack’ of wind, rain and snow today – as emergency services mount their largest rescue operation since the Blitz. Forecasters warned that 80mph gales will rip into the South coast, up to two inches of rain could fall in just six hours and high ground in the North will be hit by snow. It came as the Government’s chief fire and rescue adviser said the crisis has prompted the biggest emergency response in 70 years. Peter Holland revealed that 70 percent of the fire and rescue services in England and Wales were involved in the flood

On the face of it, they seem worlds apart. Switzerland’s referendum vote against the free movement of labour, the ruling by the German Constitutional Court on the European Central Bank’s (ECB) attempts to save the euro, and the warning to Scotland that it won’t be allowed to keep the pound if it votes for independence – these might seem unrelated, but in truth they are all part of an increasingly explosive stand-off between the forces of national sovereignty on the one hand, and political and economic integration on the other. With elections in May likely to give rise to the most

There is something rather laughable about the fugitive leader of al-Qaeda railing--as he has been recently--against the violent tactics employed by a new generation of Islamist militants. [Snip] But what really seems to be bugging Ayman al-Zawahiri, al-Qaeda’s ideological linchpin, is not so much the violent methods being employed by militants fighting in Syria and Iraq, but the fact that they are no longer prepared to take orders from him. He is the godfather of Islamist terrorism--but an increasingly isolated one. This is certainly the view of American intelligence officials, who closely monitor every aspect of Islamist activity around the

Colorado´s Obamacare insurance exchange

Connect for Health Colorado, the state´s Obamacare insurance exchange, is reeling after news surfaced that Christa Ann McClure, a top agency executive, will stand trial in Montana for embezzling from her previous nonprofit employer. McClure, 51, was hired as Director of Partner Engagement at Connect for Health Colorado in March 2013 after a thorough vetting. She hadn´t yet been indicted in the case, which stemmed from her tenure at the helm of Housing Montana of Billings, a federal contractor.

What´s good for the goose is evidently good for the gander as Michelle Obama chats away with the womanising French president – right under her husband’s disapproving gaze. The US First Lady giggled as Francois Hollande turned his back on the leader of the free world to charm his wife at a state dinner in Washington. And while 52-year-old Barack Obama’s expression suggests he may be reconsidering his “special relationship” with France, he really is in no position to complain. Only a couple of months ago he was photographed lavishing attention on Danish premier Helle Thorning-Schmidt. The two even posed for

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was in direct contact with President Barack Obama at least 18 times between October 2012 and October 2013, including seven occasions where her draft calendar showed Obamacare as the topic of conversation. The news appears to contradict her insistence that Obama was in the dark about problems plaguing the ill-fated healthcare.gov website in the months leading up to its October 1, 2013 launch. The Hill newspaper reported Thursday that documents released through a Freedom of Information Act request show meetings, events and phone calls where the two were together. They also show at

Fears of a return of Irish dissident terrorism to the UK mainland were raised last night after Downing Street said a wave of crude bombs sent to Armed Forces’ recruiting offices were “Northern Ireland related”. One of the “basic, but viable” devices sent to seven different military careers centres bore a Republic of Ireland postmark. Counter terrorism police said all the packages were linked and "crude" in design but "could have caused injury to others".

Amidst the chaos and the posturings of the floods and the not unexpected dirty tricks of the Wythenshawe by-election, Parliament, both Lords and Commons, has united to call for legislation to criminalise smoking in cars containing a child. It reflects rather well the desire of the inhabitants of the Westminster village to be seen to be doing something about something at a time when so much they might well be doing is out of reach--either because of the progressive pre-electioneering of the Coalition or the power-grabbing of Our Masters In Brussels. There was a time when Conservatives denounced Labour’s addiction

Sir William Osler, the “father of modern medicine”, said that what distinguished humans from animals was the desire to take medicine. Osler died in 1919, but, like most of his brilliant aphorisms, it is still true, with the added development that now many of us take pills even if there’s nothing wrong with us. He also thought one of the first duties of the physician was to educate people not to take medicine. That idea, that medicines are potentially dangerous and should be avoided if possible, has gone out of the window--and that is a pity. We’re now seeing a

Famed former CNN host Larry King said he has never heard of Juanita Broaddrick Thursday in an interview with Steve Malzberg on Newsmax TV. Broadrrick, a former Arkansas nursing home worker, accused President Clinton of raping her during the late 1970s in a 1998 Dateline interview. Malzberg was describing a double standard of media coverage during the 2012 conventions, noting left wing pundits dubbed the GOP convention a “convention of rapists” while remaining silent on President Clinton’s keynote address despite sexual assault allegations directed against the former president. King interjected “Hold up, hold up. Stop! Bill Clinton was accused of rape?” Malzberg reacted

Establishment Republicans and a right-wing group of former spies and special forces operatives that says it is nonpartisan but has historical Republican ties are raising a ruckus over Hillary Rodham Clinton´s handling of the 2012 assault on U.S. installations in Benghazi, Libya.

In a segment on last night’s Hardball with Chris Matthews, political commentator and prodigal GOP son Ron Reagan called out Sen. Ted Cruz’s latest filibustering of a Senate bill to increase the debt ceiling as self-destructive maneuver that achieved nothing — except, perhaps, hastened the destruction of the GOP. “What exactly was on Ted Cruz’s mind?” a boggled Reagan asked. “What was he thinking of in terms of his Senate colleagues?

At least every week now, there is a new story supporting the narrative of an inevitable 2016 Hillary Clinton presidential bid. Indeed, the conventional wisdom is that it is an absolute certainty that she will run. If anyone is currently saying, flat out, that Hillary isn´t running, I haven´t come across them. Is the inevitability of her run really as certain as the conventional wisdom suggests, and further, is it unfolding in an optimal manner for the potential candidate? In all likelihood, Clinton will not make a final, "go-or-no-go" decision until early next year, after the dust has settled from

Less than 24 hours after President Obama illegally rewrote the law he had previously jammed down Boehner´s -- and the country´s -- throat, Boehner handed the budding dictator a clean debt-ceiling hike. Last October, Obama vindictively shut down the federal government upon his having refused to delay ObamaCare, which of course is exactly what he himself lawlessly did on February 10, 2014! Of course, Boehner is hardly in a position to argue now, having foolishly (immensely so) accepted responsibility for the shutdown. Never mind Boehner´s cowardice (we´ll get to that in a moment); what kind of moron cedes that kind of maneuverability to

The school of literary criticism known as reception theory holds that a text should be studied in light of its effect on its contemporaries, that a reader should be aware of the “horizon of expectations” in which a text is produced. I was reminded of this the other day as I observed, in amusement, fascination, and occasional pity, the reaction of the so-called mainstream media to Alana Goodman’s lengthy and rock-solid report on “The Hillary Papers.” This trove of previously unexamined transcriptions of conversations between Hillary Clinton and her best friend Diane Blair had been collecting dust at the University

I imagine the only thing worse than being forced to watch CNN inside an airport terminal is being forced to watch it in a doctor’s office. So you can imagine my surprise when I discovered a Michigan health care facility, funded by federal tax dollars, blocked Fox News Channel from its waiting room television sets. The president of Family Health Care directed staff to block Fox News after a board member complained about our network’s coverage of the Affordable Care Act, an employee told me. “The board member complained that patients were turning the channel to Fox News,” said the employee who asked

Is demonic possession real or the manifestation of mental illness? In assisting priests in nearly 100 exorcisms, Adam Blai has become a true believer in good and evil, God and the devil. "If you’ve seen the things in the Gospels played out in front of you, it ceases to become faith. It’s knowledge,” says Blai. Former Allegheny County commissioner Bob Cranmer says he shares that same knowledge. He says his home was possessed. “I’ve seen it; I’ve seen crucifixes bent in half repeatedly. I’ve seen Rosary beads torn apart. That doesn’t happen,” said Cranmer. “That’s an evil. That’s not Casper

We cheered a week ago, when President Obama used the National Prayer Breakfast to call for release of two Americans. The first is Kenneth Bae, a prisoner of North Korea. The other is Saeed Abedini, a prisoner of Iran. Each has been sentenced to long prison terms for “crimes” that only a criminal regime would deem criminal: Bae for ministering to Christians and Abedini for work on behalf of house churches. Alas, the week since Obama’s call confirms a depressing fact about America’s diminished standing in the world these days. Pyongyang packed Bae off to one of its labor camps in the vast
