Romney in Lebanon, Ohio
This is Romney in front of a crowd in Lebanon, Ohio over the weekend. Of course the lamestream media will never report this, but Romney is said to be speaking in front of "2008 Obama-sized crowds" these days--in Ohio!
Where's Obama? They've had him hidden away at a 5-star golf resort in Virginia for the better part of a week. "Debate prep," is what they're calling it. I guess Camp David wasn't available. He also stayed at a golf resort in Nevada when he did his, um, prep work for the first debate, so actually I'm all for this strategy.
O evidently did a radio interview on Friday, and he told the radio host that "he never thought" during last week's presidential debate that Romney got the better of him. "I do think that on television it was clear that I was being too restrained when Mr. Romney was telling his tall tales. But the truth is, when you read the transcript, everything I said was true and a lot of what he said was not." Obama seems to think his only problem that night was that he was "too polite." And I do believe he really believes that. Having been brought up by a toxic narcissist, I recognize the signs: in their own minds, which is the only place that matters, narcissists can do no wrong. I'm sure O simply believes that the knuckle-draggers out there just aren't smart enough to realize how truly stellar his performance was that night.
Oh please God, let this fool continue to believe that he did just fine in the first debate. I was happy to hear that he's still using John F-ing Kerry to play the part of Romney. How that makes any sense whatsover is beyond me. Oh, they both were elected to political office in Massachusetts. And they both have money, although Romney made his the old fashioned way and Kerry got his from his wife. Romney is a decent, God-fearing, hard-working man who loves his family; Kerry is a nasty S.O.B. patrician snob. Well, it worked for O so well the first time, it will hopefully work out the same way again. Oh, and most hilariously, the moderator, Candy Crowley, is being played by Anita Dunn.

I've noticed that O Team has recently dropped the "liar" word from their lexicon. Evidently they figured out through their internal polling that, except for their leftist base, which is obviously going to vote for them anyway (or stay home), Americans don't like that word. I noticed that even "Axe" Axelrod didn't use the word on the Sunday shows.
I'm a little bit confused about why Obama is having to "cram" (the word being used by O Team) for days to get ready for this debate. Does he not know the issues of his own administration? Where's he been for the past four years?
The New York Times believes that "obviously" Barry doesn't need any help with his facts, so what he's spending six days working on is his style--seriously: Obama is learning "how to accuse Mr. Romney of twisting the facts without seeming rude." And who is Obama studying for style points? Smilin' Joe Biden! Watching the VP debate aboard Air Force One, O was heard to say "That was pretty good!" again and again at crazy Uncle Joe's zingers.
The NYT says that Tuesday's debate will be a chance for Obama to "come out swinging," although he "must not appear desperate." We are told that Obama is "working on how to answer questions posed by the audience in a respectful way." I fell off my chair laughing when I read that. If Obama had taken any real questions during the past four years from anyone other than his chosen sycophants, then he wouldn't have to be "working on" how to answer questions respectfully. This is maybe the most pathetic thing I've ever seen written about an American president. Obama just keeps taking us to new lows.
Update. Oh for the love of God. The audience for Tuesday's debate, in a townhall format, will be made up of UNDECIDED voters chosen by Gallup. If a person is undecided at this point, then you are either a complete political naif or you are a moron. In either case undecided voters have no business having any role in this debate. Give me people on the right, people on the left, libertarians, progressives--whatever. But undecideds? Good grief.
Even if this idea made any sense, how does Gallup go about proving someone is undecided? This is just ridiculous.
Update #2. This is where Obama has been locked up for his "debate prep." It's a five-star waterfront golf resort in Virginia. Three golf courses. BUT HE DIDN'T BRING HIS CLUBS! These people on the O-Team really think we're stupid. Enjoy it, dude. In fact, I hope he enjoys every day of the rest of his life, living off of our dime. I mean that. Just as long as he goes away for good, he can play golf every day of his freaking life, if that's what he wants to do.
