Debate Results

Posted by Troy on 16th October 2012 in Current Events, Political

The real answer: tie.  Whichever one you support, you think won.

Now I will give my detailed reactions throughout the debate:

Obama said that everyone needs a great education.  This is wrong.  Do we need janitors with PhDs?  Nope.  When it comes down to education for all, it’s a lie.  We will need janitors and garbage men and grave diggers, and there’s no reason why they should be saddled down with student debt nor taking away class time from those that we want to be rocket scientists, doctors, and lawyers.  Of course, he wants to build roads and bridges.  Bridges and roads.  Of course, only the Democrats think that roads are a natural function of government…not!  Hey, if roads equal jobs, why don’t we build four lane highways to every rural town in the United States?  Ask the Russians how government planned, uneconomical expansions work out for them.  It doesn’t.

Romney finally dealt with how bankruptcy for GM would have gone.  Thank you, Romney!  Yes, GM would still exist.  Union contracts would have been renegotiated, and the companies would be in a much stronger position they are now.  Right now, all we have to look forward to is the further bailing out of them in the future.

Obama wants to double gas mileage.  That’s nice.  Of course, what this will mean is that all US made cars will be hybrids that cost at least $10,000 more than their foreign counterparts.  What this means is that our companies are going to be slaughtered in the market.  Good going!  He wants all this investment in the energy sources of the future…at 16 trillion in debt and counting.  Has it occurred to him that we would be better served to let other countries figure out how to make the green energy affordable and then copy their technology?  Works well for Apple…  Just saying…

Romney finally threw Obama’s comment about coal plants going bankrupt under Obama’s plan in Obama’s face.  Thank you, Romney!  Finally, let that come to light.

The moderator is completely bias.  Obama ended with 3 minutes more speaking time than Romney.  Obama was allowed to invade Romney’s speaking time.  I was quite happy when Romney finally took control and basically told Obama “Sit down, I’m talking!”  Obama’s body posture suggested indifference or worse.

Then Obama says “The reason gas prices were so low when I got in was the economy was bad.”   WHAT?!!!!  What?!  Are you kidding me?  Gas prices are determined by if the economy is good or bad?

I appreciate Romney’s ability to control the flow in the face of a hostile environment.

Romney finally did a good job explaining his tax policy.

Obama responded by going to class warfare suggesting the rich had attacked the middle class over the last twenty years.  He claims that a balanced budget is a moral obligation despite the fact that Obama has racked up 6 trillion in debt and is slated to have another 4 trillion in debt in the future.  His main thing seemed to be claiming “I’m like Bill Clinton!”  I would like to point out that Marxists always demand “fairness,” and that’s what Obama keeps pleading for.  Obama’s plan for improving the economy?  College and hiring veterans.  WHAT?!  Oh my God!  Finally, what is different between a tax cut and tax rate cut in his opinion?

Why does the moderator always let Obama get the last word and drone on and on and on?  Man…such bias!  There is GREAT advantage in getting the last word.

Per usual, Obama resorts to antedotes in regards to women’s rights and claims that Romney wants to prevent women from getting contraception.

Then the most bias question of the night:  ”You’re like Bush, aren’t you Romney?”  Where was the “You’re like Carter, aren’t you Obama?” question?

Obama’s answer:  Bush!  He’s to blame for all this!  It wasn’t me!  Shaggy would be proud.  ”Just say It wasn’t me.”

Then we have  a real question…inflation.  Obama droned on and on and didn’t answer the question.  Didn’t you triple the money supply?  That probably has something to do with the inflation rate.

A Latina asked a question.  Why can’t either of the candidates get her name right?  Romney did a bad job holding Obama to account.  He tried, but what he should have said is “You had both houses.  You could have passed whatever you wanted with not a single Republican vote.  Why didn’t you?  You promised the Latinos you would.  Why didn’t you?”  Bam.  Obama’s dead.

Moderator: Do you ever intend to stop Obama from talking over his allotted time?!  No?  Oh, okay.

Obama responded: I wanna change the topic!

Then we come up with Libya.  Obama’s response?  I’m going to talk and not say anything-his typical answer.  Romney’s reply to the whole Libya thing, after setting him up, should have been “Then you’re incompetent.”  If he didn’t know it was a terrorist attack until 14 days after, he’s incompetent.

Then Obama gets onto the 2nd Amendment.  Of course, all liberals think it’s about hunting and protection.  It is not.  Read the Federalist Papers.  The 2nd Amendment is to protect us from a government run amok.  Romney didn’t see the win.  We already had a assault weapons ban.  Know the effect on crime?  There was none.  Amazingly, criminals are willing to use a different weapon if they can’t get an AK-47.  As far as the shooter in Colorado went, more people would have died if he had used the 12 gauge and his pistols.  At that range, a rifle is actually a worse choice.  If the people had rushed him, he would have only killed 2-3 people max.

I want to give Romney pure bravery points.  He said the truth.  You want to stop youth crime and give the next generation opportunities, get married before having a kid.  I’m surprised Obama didn’t turn that against him, but Romney is 100% right, and that was the bravest thing I’ve heard from a politician – EVER.

The Obama talks about his plans.  After spending so long talking about Romney’s loopholes, what’s Obama’s plan?  To close loopholes!  Hilarious!  Then he starts talking about how he is for self-reliance, and I wanted to yell, “Bullshit, you Commie bastard!”  Neat thing…you can call Obama a bastard and it’s technically correct.  When he talks about “leveling the playing field,” he is talking about Marxism, people.  Wise up.  He has often said that it is the government’s job to ensure that everyone gets a fair shake.  That’s not self-reliance.  That is saying that all social justice is a function of government, and social justice is a function of Marxism.

And, as usual, Obama got the last word, and he used the out of context 47% comment.

Let’s see how this moves the polls.  I will, of course, pull for Romney.

Long Live the Constitution!
