Here come the presidential debates


This morning on CBC, Paul Brandus and I looked ahead to the presidential debates. The first debate between Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama will be Wednesday night in Denver. With Obama leading in the national and swing state polls, the debates may represent Romney’s best chance to change the dynamic of this race — to shift the focus away from his “47%”comment and to his ideas for improving the economy. The theme will be domestic policy and the economy, and Romney will likely be pressed to address nagging questions about how he would deliver on his promised tax cuts without aggravating the already enormous federal deficit. As I wrote in the recent issue of Maclean’s, anything short of a clear win by Romney is effectively a win for Obama, since it would maintain the status quo as Election Day draws near and early voting is already under way.

Here come the presidential debates

  1. The EUSSR needed Libya’s oil and since they have been on US military welfare since WW2, they had their dupe Sodom Hussein Obama assassinate their newly uncooperative stooge Muammar Queerdaffy, who they previously had on the UN Human Rights Commission…

    In Syria, nobody wants to get involved because it would force them to admit that George Bush was right and the WMDs Saddam Hussein did have and did use on Kurds and Iranians went over to his friend (and formerly theirs) Assad in the Ba’ath Socialist party.

    These EUSSR socialists can never face the facts of what socialism really is.

    “The U.S. has lost track of some of Syria’s chemical weapons, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said Friday, and does not know if any potentially lethal chemicals have fallen into the hands of Syrian rebels or Iranian forces inside the country.”

    – Foreign Policy (9-29)

    Leon Puñettas was too busy having gay pride celebrations at the Pentagon… now there is a dead ambassador and all they can do is play with their wee wees and cry about some stupid movie?

    • Dude, I applaud you for remembering the “Iraq had nukes but they were shipped to Syria at the last minute and that’s why the inspectors found nothing” bit. That was intended to last in the public’s mind for about 18 days to help cow people into accepting the invasion, and then it was supposed to be forgotten before reason kicked in. Reaching down that memory hole does a service to us all.

      • Not nukes, chemical weapons… you dumb hick…

  2. I think Romney also needs to distance himself from his comments about how if he gets elected, the economy will get a boost just from the election.

    I’ve seen that one played around a few times on some of the late night shows with comments like, “So it seem Romney’s plan for economic growth is to have no plan at all.”

    If that starts to get traction, it’ll be by tearing his electoral chances apart.
