STRIDENT ANGRY O HITS THE PANIC BUTTON – AGAIN
Think about it. Barack Hussein Obama – never in his wildest imagination – believed that he’d find himself in this position – two weeks before an election that will cost him his job. After all, he was the messiah; he was going to make the world (particularly the Middle East) love “us” (he really meant “him”); he was going to not only heal the division in America, he was going to heal the planet. He was going to stop the oceans’ rise. He was Hope – and he was Change.
And now? O’s was in full panic mode last night for all, for all the world to see – except for CNN, the pathetic “journalists” at MSNBC and the Obamabots, of course. His petulance and condescending arrogance came across as almost funny; he was actually angry - not only at Mitt for having the balls to challenge him, but also that a majority of Americans have done so as well – and are proving it in the polls.
While O got the facts wrong several times (as did Mitt), he eked out a narrow victory on points and detail- which frankly, a sitting president with unique access to foreign policy information ought to be able to do.
However – once again – he lost the debate on style and public perception, having behaved like a spoiled child who was not getting his way. As a result, the “likability factor,” which was (until recently) one of the primary arrows in O’s quiver, has moved even more in Mitt’s direction. This does not bode well for President Hopenchange.
Take this to bank: Nobody will leave Mitt for O after O’s condescending, dismissive performance last night. (“We have these boats that go under the water…”) Moreover, undecideds and independents will continue to move in Mitt’s direction; he was more in control of his emotions, made no major gaffes, was less strident and looked more presidential.
One of Mitt’s best lines of the night: “Mr. President, attacking me is not an agenda.” Turn out the lights when you leave, O; the party’s almost over.
