Obama Can Win Debates if He Keeps It Cool While Romney Keeps Lying

For the past three weeks, political pundits haven't stopped talking about Barack Obama's miserable performance in the first televised debate against Mitt Romney. Predictably, polls have shown that Obama's lackluster response to Romney's lies has hurt his numbers. The Mormon candidate flipped more whoppers than Burger King, but the president failed to seize on Romney's falsehoods.

Obama was clearly caught off-guard. He was like a kid who had prepared for a school debate about the birds and the bees while his opponent talked about the flowers and the trees. The president thought he was going to debate the Romney who said he'd cut taxes for the rich while raising taxes on the middle-class, and who said he'd kill Medicare. Instead, Obama got the other Romney, the mofo who lies his ass off. That's exactly what Obama wanted to call Romney during the debate, but that wouldn't look presidential.

So what does Barack do to turn it around in the final two debates? Foremost, he needs to keep it classy. Romney wants Obama to lose his cool, but as long as the president doesn't fall into that trap, he's good.

See, the more Romney lies and changes his positions, the more undecided voters will realize he'll say anything to get elected. Romney is a lot like the life insurance salesman who used to come to my mama's house trying to get her to buy a policy. The dude could charm the pants off Charles Ponzi.

Obama also needs to remind the American public that he is the guy who got Osama bin Laden, who doesn't let Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu push him around, who saved the American auto industry and then recouped all the money that the government loaned the car manufacturers, and who stopped credit card companies from charging bullshit fees.

What happen top the truth in reporting, fact checking, what kinda of editor or news outlet would allow such a bigot so called reporter to publish a racist, one sided, BS story.

 

If the reporter actually knew what he was talking about he would look at Obama's  record and see that 4 years ago this idiot promised hope and change, we got change alright: the unemployment changed to all time highs, Obama promised to bring it down, our country went from greatness to depressed, our Ambassadors are being killed and in Obama world that means "the terrorists are no more". Speaking of terrorists and our American Ambassador being murdered what about Obama s lies regarding that terrorist attack, When the President of the country where this attack took place is calling it an attack, Obama is out there saying its because of some on-line movie trailer. Now we find out the white house was watching this live, on the anniversary of 9/11 and this idiot could not figure out this was a terrorist attack or did he LIE to not have another black mark on his record for election purposes. To top it off the person who did make this movie is arrested and paraded in front of news cameras. This is what is done in a 3rd world, suppressed country, not the United States of America. I'm afraid that is where Obama has the United States of America headed, into a suppressed 3rd world country and bigoted racist reporters like this is helping him. My best guess is this reporter is black, so all he can see is Obama is black so he can do no wrong.The fact is that kind of thinking is racist. The fact that Obama paid black farmers for racism in the past is racist.My best guess is this reporter is only called a reporter due to the racist program called affirmative action because there is no way in hell this idiot got a job as a reporter on his merit.

 

I am embarrassed to say I bought Obama's BS 4 years ago and voted for him. All I have got for my vote is is broken promises, a weaker country, a weaker economy, less oppurtunities in our great nation, less freedoms, numerious US embassy's destroyed and a US embassador murdered, a president who blames everything on the last President. HOW THE HELL IS ANYTHING GOING TO GET BETTER IS OBAMA CAN NOT TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANYTHING. Perhaps he had is 15 seconds in fame and he failed miserably. It is time to kick him out and replace him. If your quarterback is throwing interceptions and fumbeling he gets replaced. If a coach is loosing and the team is falling from its 1st place position the coach gets replaced.

 

Just because of the color of someones skin or a Democrat or a Republican does not meam he is good for our counrty. If anyone compares where our counrty was 4 years ago to where we stand today , it is sad. Our dedt that has shot through the roof under Obamas 4 years, Our unemployment, Our number of US citizens on food stamps.

The question we should ask our selves:

Does America needs a CEO or a Stateman.?

There is a big difference in between.

what do you think?

mitt romney=pillage plunder profit

 

Romney's campaign is based on the notion that because of what he did at Bain he understands the economy. It's perfectly reasonable to examine what his experience at Bain really taught him. After all, Bain wasn't in the business of creating jobs, it was in the business of making money  The high unemployment is due to people like romney out sourcing that's why middle class Americans are suffering so much..

 

 

 

 

China just didn't steal our jobs all by themselves, Romney and other profits for the few people like him, wrapped up the jobs in a great big package, put a bow on it and gave the jobs to the Chinese.Now, maybe the Chinese would have taken some of them, but Romney didn't have to push the jobs out and give them away.Mitt was a pioneer in  in sending jobs out of the United States to China. Romney shipped our jobs to China and that is the person you want to be president of the United States.?

Your article is pretty bad. So your saying Obama is the savior of the nation. So what has obama accomplished during the past 4 years? I bet you don't even know what half of the topics are during the debates. You sir, are one biased mofo, but I guess it is to be expected from someone of your stature.

So, Obama never changed his political stance?  Um, gay marriage - you stupid nagger.  Freaking retard, so biased.  Everybody changes their mind; However, everyone still thinks you're an idiot and that will never change.

If you believe that Mr. Obama has been the "do-all" President that Mr. Campbell claims he is, then vote for him; however, I see it differently.  I see Mr. Obama as being weak as well as being totally ineffective and unprepared for the tasks at hand.  I will not vote for Mr. Obama for the simple reason that I do not trust him nor the people that he has surrounded himself with.  Have a nice day.

 @drakemallard Every business is in the business of making money. If a business does not make money, it FAILS. So you don't believe Romney understands the economy, but you believe Obama does? Tell me, what are Obama's qualifications and experience with respect to the economy?

 

So, a man that has worked extensively in the private sector as an executive, mind you private sector being a huge sector of the economy,  or a man who went straight into politics? And even at that he failed to vote yes or no many times?

 @drakemallard You may want to check your history.  You might find out that in addition to being a successful investor and business person, Mr. Romney served as Governor of the State of Massachusetts. 

 

In 3+ years, the first 2 of which he had a majority in both the Senate and House of Representatives, Obama has accomplished nothing except additional debt for every taxpayer in this country.  The real problem with that is less than 50% of Americans pay taxes.  Do you pay taxes?

 @Michael The right to marry whoever one wishes is an elementary human right compared to which "the right to attend an integrated school, the right to sit where one pleases on a bus, the right to go into any hotel or recreation area or place of amusement, regardless of one's skin or color or race" are minor indeed. Even political rights, like the right to vote, and nearly all other rights enumerated in the Constitution, are secondary to the inalienable human rights to "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" proclaimed in the Declaration of Independence Hannah Arendt

 @nascor83 Romney, in fact, wants to give away even more to the rich than Republicans in the House by permanently eliminating the estate tax – a proposal that alarmsr veterans of the first Bush administration. "Given the vast amounts of wealth that have accumulated at the very, very, very top, it's an odd time to be eliminating this most progressive element of the tax system," says Michael Graetz, a former deputy assistant Treasury secretary under Bush. Over a decade, Romney's gift to the nation's most fortunate families would allow their heirs to pocket at least $1 trillion (including up to $50 million for Mitt's own heirs)

Yes he served as the Governor of Massachusetts and they despise him there.  He knows it, that's why he is not even contesting the State.

 

If YOU check your history, you will discover that no candidate has EVER won the Presidency without carrying their own state.
