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???
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.
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.
