Well, here goes …
For the past four years, every time President Obama walked into a room he has received a standing ovation. For the past four years, every time he spoke, he has been lauded as a wonderfully talented presenter of ideas. For the past four years, whenever President Obama made a promise an entire gaggle of supporters took him at his word, even to the point of the White House Press Corps handling him with kid gloves, afraid to challenge him on any promise or point made to date. When President Obama was elected he was even given the Nobel Peace Prize for promising to change things (not on what he did, just for his promise to do something, eventually).
Now seriously, tell me, who in their right mind wouldn’t have an ego the size of Cleveland if this happened to YOU?
However, on October 3, 2012, for the FIRST time in his presidency (and I’d like to add that perhaps for the first time in his political career), President Obama was challenged on everything he has said, done, and promised and the result was simple: He looked flat and was totally without any answer for himself. This speaks VOLUMES about his ability to lead … even when challenged for his own job. I posted this thought last night on Facebook when the debate concluded and I stand by it: “Split screen on C-SPAN made Barack Obama look like a little boy caught lying with Mitt Romney educating and/or correcting him. Well done, Gov. Romney.”
Today, if you still think this man is capable of leading you must still be convinced also that President Bill Clinton did no wrong and deserves to be praised as a man of integrity.
To quote Bill Maher (who by the way contributed $1,000,000 to an Obama SuperPAC , “I can’t believe I’m saying this; but Obama does need a teleprompter. Obama made a lot of great points tonight; unfortunately most of them were for Romney.” Bill Maher, a filthy, loud mouth, self-valuing opinionated bozo, Obama Kool-Aid drinking machine dogged him out. Come on, it doesn’t get much clearer than that.
However, you can be the judge … tell me which one looks like a confident and engaging leader:
Thank you Governor Romney for showing up prepared and ready to identify the serious weaknesses in our country with solutions in hand. You have done well, but … it ain’t over yet.
