Dear Readers: There has been tons of opinion about the third presidential debate, which I thought Republican challenger Mitt Romney won by being……presidential. While some conservative pundits complained that Romney’s approach seemed too mild and agreeable, I am going to have to agree with Hillbuzz pundit Kevin Dujan — this was a genius battle tactic:
Romney clearly was looking to appeal to independent voters, especially women, who were uncomfortable with the last debate’s combative approach. It seems to have worked, as indicated by a piece from a young, female Washington State University scholar:
President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney took the stage in the third and final presidential debate last night, which focused on foreign policy. Romney emerged victorious…
Romney does not buy into the idea that terrorism is about one person, which he demonstrated during the debate when he stated, “We cannot kill our way out of this mess.” Romney understands the big picture and is more far-sighted on the issue than the current administration….
Throughout the debate Obama continued to attack Romney rather than fully answer questions. He also misquoted the governor and took Romney’s proposed policies out of context — all while sprinkling hopeful quotes such as, “we are building alliances,” and, “I have kept America safe.”
In reality, Obama has alienated our allies, such as Israel, while trying to befriend our adversaries, such as Iran…..
Romney is the strong leader we can trust to protect our families, country and freedom.
With less than two weeks before Election Day, Romney has proven in the final debate he is the Commander-in-Chief our military demands, and the president our country needs.
Obama was full of snotty snark, and Romney had substance and gravitas. Perhaps the most amusing aspect has been the fact the inane comment Obama made about “bayonets and horses” has proved to be entirely ignorant. Glenn Reynolds/Instapundit featured a book: Horse Soldiers: The Extraordinary Story of a Band of US Soldiers Who Rode to Victory in Afghanistan. Also, it seems that the military still uses bayonets, and a bayonet manufacturer resents Obama’s dismissal.
That, my readers, is denseness on an astronomical scale. I would find this humorous, as the remark was coupled with Obama’s signature superiority. However, as it involves the degradation of American prestige and the fate of our service personnel, it merely makes me await Nov. 6th with the same excitement I used to reserve for Dec. 25th.
Here’s a reminder of one of Obama’s foreign policy chestnuts:
With Romney pulling ahead in Rasmussen, Gallup and other polls nationally, and new polls revealing Virginia clearly Romney’s and Ohio likely to follow soon, Team Obama is looking very desperate.
BONUS: Trump is ready to go Alinksy on Obama. Sweet!
