Weekend Edition: The Debate – Why Obama Lost

So. Why DID Obama look so bad in the 1st debate? What happened? Why did he lose so badly?

I believe that, to get to the root of it, we first must look at the fall-out.

Since the debate, the Obama campaign, liberals, liberal pundits and liberal celebrities have been trying to explain away Obama’s dismal performance.

First they said that Romney was all style and no substance.

This would be a good time to remind you that liberals always accuse conservatives of what they, themselves are guilty of.

Then, they said that Obama didn’t do well because…Romney was lying. Obama himself said that Romney was lying and suggested that, “If you want to be president, you owe the American people the truth.”

I agree which is why I won’t be voting for Obama.

Al Gore said Obama’s disaster of a debate was due to Denver’s altitude.

None of those things, thrown at the wall, stuck.

So…Yesterday, Obama’s minions said it was because Romney spent more time preparing.

Oh? That’s a crime of some sort? While Obama was on the radio with “Pimp with a LimP”…on The View, Lettererman…60 Minutes…Partying with Beyonce and Jay-Z…skipping meetings with world leaders and skipping his Daily Intell Briefings…Romney was preparing for the debate?

That fell flat in a hurry as well.

NOW…the latest reason being thrown at the wall for Obama’s lousy debate showing is…Romney isn’t as conservative as Obama thought he would be???

Good grief…

Excuses after excuses. None are correct but, the correct answer is one that neither liberals nor Obama himself can bring themselves to see or admit.

The truth is…Obama lost that debate long, LONG before he set foot on that stage.

It has relatively little to do with the fact that he is unable to defend 4 years of failed policies or articulate his plans for the future. Sure, that plays a role but, it’s not at the root of the matter.

To understand the root of it all, you have to understand Obama’s roots. That’s where his downfall at the 1st debate began.

For his entire life, Obama has been in the process of losing that debate.

As a child, regardless of his geographic origins, Obama was surrounded by those who believe that the people should belong to the government. Government control was instilled in Obama from his earliest days.

As he grew, he became a product of the places he lived…The global man. Indonesia…the Madrasas…Those closest to him whether it was Frank Marshall Davis or Barack Obama Sr. were socialists or communists and they believed heavily in a socialistic system.

By the time he was in College, Obama chose to associate with those same types. “To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists.”

In Chicago…Nothing changes.

He started his political career in the home of a domestic terrorist who was, and still is, both unrepentant and anti-government.

Obama spent 20 years in the pew before a preacher who was as radical as they get. “The government gives them the drugs, builds bigger prisons, passes a three-strike law and then wants us to sing ‘God Bless America.’ No, no, no, God damn America, that’s in the Bible for killing innocent people.”

Now, we know that in 2007, Senator Obama stood before a group in Virginia and praised Rev. Wright who was in the audience and did his level best to SOUND like Rev. Wright not only in his cadence but, in his words. Obama condemned the government, of which he was then a part, for what he perceived as racist behavior regarding the response to hurricane Katrina.

Not only was he wrong, he was intentionally lying about the Stafford Act money.

10 days previous to his speech in Virginia, the senate indeed DID provide $7 billion Stafford Act free dollars to New Orleans BUT…Obama himself had voted against it.

From the first day he became president right up to this very day, Obama has advocated socialist policies and, when he hasn’t been able to get congress to go along with him, he’s bribed them or he’s simply dismissed them and ruled by executive order.

So…this brings us to last week’s debate.

Obama had already lost that debate long before it started.

From the first question to the last, Obama struggled to find ways to whoop it up for big and bigger government without sounding like he was…whooping it up for big and bigger government…

The time for socialists and worse to come out of their closets in American politics is close but, not quite here yet.

Mitt Romney spent the entire debate telling the American people exactly what he’s all about.

Smaller and less intrusive government.

As a governor, Mitt Romney never took a red cent in pay. Yes, he was well off but…He saw himself as a servant of the people. He never thought that the people of his state were there to do HIS bidding. Quite the opposite in fact.

Regardless of the question, Obama took the big government side of the issue and Romney, the smaller government position.

Obamacare? Obama is all about it and Romney doesn’t believe the federal government should be making the decisions that doctors and patients should be making.

The debt? Obama thinks the GOVERNMENT can tax and spend our way out and Romney believe that, given the freedom to do so, private enterprise can GROW our economy out of the hole.

Taxes?

Well, this one is very interesting. Obama thinks we should punish the rich with higher and higher taxes.

Romney believes the tax rate for EVERYBODY should come down BUT, the loopholes in the tax code that benefit the rich should be closed so that they continue to pay the same percentage of taxes, overall, that they are paying now.

It boils down to this. As a socialist, Obama believes we should have fewer wealthy people and, as a capitalist, Romney believes we should have fewer poor people.

Watch and listen to what I believe was THE most defining moment of the debate last week. Listen to Obama dance around his big government approach, trying to whoop it up FOR big government without SAYING he’s whooping it up for big government.

Then…Listen to Mitt Romney…A man who believe that the government belongs to the people rather than the people belonging to the government.

Neither man knew the question regarding the role of government was coming and both answered according to their ideology…Off the cuff…Unscripted and both…100% honestly.

Obama lost before he even began that debate because, for his entire life, he’s been immersed in a cesspool of like-minded ideologists and surrounded by sycophants including the liberal lapdog media and, until last week’s debate, he has never had to try and defend his liberal/socialist dream, one on one, with someone who could so unapologetically articulate the restoration of the true American Dream.

Mitt Romney believes that WE can fix our nation’s ills if government allows us our rights, endowed by the Creator, without getting in our way.

Obama, on the other hand, believes that government is the engine to your success and that government, through taxation, controls the level of your success.

  1. From Sunday’s 07 Sept. 2008 Televised “Meet the Press” THE THEN Senator Obama was asked about his stance on the American Flag.
    General Bill Gann’ USAF (ret.) asked Obama to explain WHY he doesn’t follow protocol when the National Anthem is played.
    The General stated to Obama that according to the United States Code, Title 36, Chapter 10, Sec. 171…
    During rendition of the national anthem, when the flag is displayed, all present (except those in uniform) are expected to stand at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart. Or, at the very least, “Stand and Face It”.
    NOW GET THIS !!
    ‘Senator Obama replied :
    “As I’ve said about the flag pin, I don’t want to be perceived as taking sides”. “There are a lot of people in the world to whom the American flag is a symbol of oppression..” “The anthem itself conveys a war-like message. You know, the bombs bursting in air and all that sort of thing.”
    (ARE YOU READY FOR THIS???)
    Obama continued : “The National Anthem should be ‘swapped’ for something less parochial and less bellicose. I like the song ‘I’d Like To Teach the World To Sing’. If that were our anthem, then, I might salute it. In my opinion, we should consider reinventing our National Anthem as well as ‘redesign’ our Flag to better offer our enemies hope and love. It’s my intention, if elected, to disarm America to the level of acceptance to our Middle East Brethren. If we, as a Nation of warring people, conduct ourselves like the nations of Islam, where peace prevails – – – perhaps a state or period of mutual accord could exist between our governments ……”

    When I become President, I will seek a pact of agreement to end hostilities between those who have been at war or in a state of enmity, and a freedom from disquieting oppressive thoughts. We as a Nation, have placed upon the nations of Islam, an unfair injustice which is WHY my wife disrespects the Flag and she and I have attended several flag burning ceremonies in the past”.
    “Of course now, I have found myself about to become the President of the United States and I have put my hatred aside. I will use my power to bring CHANGE to this Nation, and offer the people a new path. My wife and I look forward to becoming our Country’s First black Family. Indeed, CHANGE is about to overwhelm the United States of America ”
    Yes, you read it right.
    I, for one, am speechless!!!

    Dale Lindsborg , Washington Post

    EVERYONE IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA NEEDS
    TO READ THIS, SO KEEP IT GOING ! !
    SAVE AMERICA BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE ! !

  2. Yes, we need to trust & believe in Jesus Christ, ultimately, He is our only hope. But, He left us on Earth partly to stand for Truth and Right until He comes back. During WWII, many believed that Hitler was the anti-Christ, and Jesus was coming soon. Certainly, things look bad. But, no one knows the day and hour.
    So, as KZ said, vote out those who folded, betrayed us. Work, pray and vote them out. Please, speak the truth kindly to the ignorant as well as the guilty. I would like to think that Romney will turn things around. Perhaps we will still have a little bit of freedom left to turn things around….May God have mercy on the USA.

  3. Why Barack lost –

    Maybe Barack lost because he’s lazy as Sununnu suggested.

    Maybe Barack lost because he is unable to express his thoughts without a teleprompter.

    Maybe Barack lost because there wasn’t a full moon.

    Maybe Barack lost for all the above reasons Craig mentioned in his article.

    How will Axelrod put the Genie back in the bottle? 62 million Americans witnessed Mitt Romney’s Camelot debate win.

  4. Some good insight although respectfully think you are off base. At this stage in the election process either Romney or Obama will lie, cheat and say whatever they think the voting audience being addressed wants to hear. Currently the Rino Republican establishment and Democratic establishment are different in name only. The “we don’t care what the people want we are going to do it anyway” behavior they endorse and follow after election time and come up with I’ll lie, say what you want to hear for your vote then do it all over again. Both got to this point by their elitist establishment power brokers. Without their concent and marching orders their is no candidate. Recall what happened in the primary process also the mid – term elections. Those for the people; we will hold Congress accountable, candidates folded faster than Superman on laundry day. How many of our rights have been taken away by both sides while they quickly plan on taking away our last ones.
    Hope is available and the elitist can’t stop it. That hope is Jesus Christ. We are in the last days and our redemption is on the way. The rapture is imminent. Vote Jesus Christ; accept his forgiveness for sin through his shed blood, death and resurrection. This is the Truth and the government to be a part of. Time to vote, it is a personal choice which everyone will make and be accountable for.
