I'm looking forward to watching it.

That pic will be about the only way Bozo can keep up with Romney.

conservativesonfire said...

Axlerod and friends were very happy with the Biden approach to debating. If that is how Obama was coached to for tonights debate, Obma will seal his fate of defeat on November 6.

Silverfiddle said...

I hope Obumbles goes extra ranty. I'd love to see him fix Romney with that Obama Death Stare every five minutes or so.

Caution: Don't play that drinking game where every time Obama says "uh" you've got to take a shot. You'll be dead of alcohol poisoning before the debate is over.

Hopefully Romney will call out Obama on all of the blatant lies that he and the Smirking Monkey have told recently.

Romney's got Obama beat anyway that you want to compare the two especially on competence and ideology.
But, I kind of agree that Obama is not 100 percent to blame, since he's only doing what his supporters put him in the White House. I blame the people that are responsible for putting him there.

The Debonair Dudes World said...

Isn’t is both Funny and a Coincidence that Madam Hillary Clinton said that she takes the blame for the lack of security at the Embassy in Benghazi?
Could it be only a Coincidence that she comes out with that arranged story the very morning of the Debate!!
Could this be because it would be difficult for Romney to blame Obama for it tonight!
Just when everyone is blaming Obama for the death of Ambassador Stevens and three other Americans who died in an attack last month.
So she comes out today and say’s "I take responsibility," "I'm the Secretary of State with 60,000-plus employees around the world.” “And that you can’t expect the President and the Vice President to be responsible for security.”

Notice that she included the “Vice President” so that Biden can wiggle out of HIS lie!

Good point!
And wasn’t it convenient that the statement she made was made while she was in Peru. Where nobody can question her about her assistant who’s testimony was just about opposite!

-FJ said...

"The story of the 'comeback kid'... how Barrack Obama fought the lies and eventually triumphed over the evil Republicans..."

I hate MSM "narratives".

FreeThinke said...

They'll SAY "The Kid" came back, OF COURSE, even if he falls on his rear end, just the way they fell all over themselves touting Mitt Romney with excessive praise after the first debate.

Why would the enemedia praise Romney, you ask?

Simple: So he will have a much greater height to fall from when they revert to slinging their stones and shooting their arrows and then doing their usual hatchet job on anyone who smacks, however faintly, of conservatism.

It's all been CHOREOGRAPHED well in advance.

I'll be very surprised if there are any surprises. No matter how well it goes one way or another, Mitt Romney has been scheduled well in advance to LOSE this debate, even if he wins it.

Mark my words, but please pray I will soon be forced to eat them.

I will be watching before leaving for France tomorrow. It'll be good to be away from American politics for 10 days and come back right before the election. Because I must say most of it is junk and depressing. The level of debate is pathetic, mostly because the left is pathetic and childish (Big Bird). Can't wait for it to be all over.

FrogBurger said...

Carlin has so much truth in his humor. And it's exactly why you can't have big gov and we need ferocious competition, and can't bail out big corporations.

Dave Miller said...

Actually Dude and Anita, it seems as if Sec State Clinton told the Wall Street Journal, a conservative leaning publication, that she took responsibility for the security lapse last week.

She did not wait until right before the debate to announce it. And she did not do it from Peru to avoid questions.

She did it in New York, to a group of conservatives, last week. They just decided not to publish the info.

This is a good reason to wait a few days before responding to stuff, because frequently, in those first few hours, you can get the story wrong and look stupid, as Amb. RIce did.

Here's the link...

FROM Z of GeeeZ from work;

Dave, I'm hoping my Googling finds more than just that one mention of the WSJ holding the information. Of course, that was an interview that was for a profile on her and it's absolutely viable that a journalist didn't pick that line up and put the two together....but the Rightwing media can't err, right? :-)

BUT, MOST IMPORTANTLY, I find it REALLY odd that, if Clinton DID say that, she'd not have told other venues at that time, don't you?
Blame the WSJ and not Hillary for admitting this at the time...to all the press? I find that odd.

I also find it weird that no media's mentioned that her assistant at State has quite a different story than Hillary does. I'm hoping someone covers that.

"I take responsibility," "I'm the Secretary of State with 60,000-plus employees around the world.” “And that you can’t expect the President and the Vice President to be responsible for security.”

DD, you are so correct.
Can anyone here imagine that George Tenant wouldn't have informed President Bush about this? Bush attended an intelligence briefing every day.

This statement from HIllary Clinton, is ludicrous. She would have been informed too, but the buck stops at the President's desk!

Does anyone here believe she could order a strike against whoever committed these terrorist attacks and murders? That is the duty of the Commander in Chief!

Furthermore, having been married to Mr. Pris who was a senior intelligence analyst, he would've been beside himself, watching this charade!!

God bless him, there are times like this when I'm glad he doesn't have to suffer the pain of seeing the games that are played with deadly serious acts like this, and idiots who don't care about anything but political survival, even if it means the weakening and downfall of America.

My God, how low can we go!


Anonymous said...

FROM Z:

Pris, I saw that the White House is now considering hitting Libya somehow for what happened.....
I couldn't help but think how much of that is political and how scary it is that we have to think that of a sitting president.
Obviously, much of what presidents do is political, but WAR?
Is this timing political? How can we know?

Yes, Mr Pris, with what he knew and analyzed, etc., would be upset...he had SO much more knowledge and so much more concern based on what he did/knew. We're grateful for Mr. Pris for all he did; I know from talking to you and him that he had INCREDIBLE analysis talents to rise as high as he did, and our country is better for him.

Hillary Clinton may have jumped under the Bus, but she isn’t going to be able to save the Bus Driver! In fact, he can’t even save himself!
There is something much larger then just the failure in Libya. It’s the fact that Obama and his stooges will not take the proper responsibility for making the decision to cover up this whole thing. Obama, Hillary, Susan Rice, and even the MSM covered up this attack and murder with one lie after another and they must be held accountable and they mus suffer the consequences for these lies. I'm sorry but they can’t blame Bush for this one

JonBerg said...

"Hillary Clinton may have jumped under the Bus"

She CRAWLED under the bus!!!!!

I wonder what the, The Buck Passes Here-in-Chief will have to say about this issue? I'm not sure that I'll be able to endure watching him to the end. He makes my skin crawl.

FrogBurger said...

Can you imagine if Condi had to do this for Bush. The Liberal media would go on and on about how it is war on women, how Bush is a chauvinistic pig, etc...

Leticia said...

I am not sure if it is going to be a fair debate. The moderator is Candy Crowley she is the CNN Chief Political Correspondent.

I have heard that neither Obama or Romney are happy with her being the moderator. And seeing comments from her, I don't think she is going to do a good job. I believe she will be doing a lot of interrupting.

Pris said...

Thank you Z,
and I'm so grateful to you, for your insight into Mr. Pris.

beamish said...

I think Candy Crowley will win the debate.

David, I have read lots of posts written by Bias Kool-aide drinking Liberals before, but yours takes the top prize.. As they say, you are entitled to your opinion, But you’re not entitled to your own facts.

You say that “She (Hillary) did it in New York, to a group of conservatives, last week. They just decided not to publish the info.” Well oh well, isn't that so very convenient or was that just a coincidence that she chose to announce it to “a group of conservatives”, And why was that? Since when does she chose to announce ANYTHING to a “ a group of conservatives”? Could it be so that she could DEFUSE anything that Romney was going to say about Obama and the Smirking Chimp tonight?
Sorry, but I think that the entire post of yours is so full of holes and nonsense that I’m sitting here typing and I must look like Uncle Joe Biden, because I’m laughing my ass off reading it. You can of course believe it as your Progressive friends do, but the facts say otherwise! Hillary’s spin job just don’t hold water, not one drop.
The buck starts and stops at Obama’s desk, and nobody especially Hillary is going to do or say anything without His Highness’s approval.
The plan was for Hillary to take the blame and relieve Barrack and Laughing Boy Joey of any blame and any INEPTNESS, before the debate, how much more obvious can it get! And that’s why it was released today, I don’t give a flying fig what Politico wrote, and like I said, it ain’t even worth my reading.

Hillary thought that she would jump the gun and take the blame before Obama throws her fat keister under that crowded Bus, because she know that’s what was coming.
When her husband LIED thru his teeth in front of the TV cameras it meant absolutely nothing to him. And this doesn't mean anything to her either. The American people are not buying it and we must demand on an investigation and not let them off the hook and not let it go away. And another thing that I just thought of, if what she says is true, and that SHE did make this stupid decision, then Obama should fire her PERIOD!
If Obama is responsible, he needs to resign, if Clinton is responsible, she needs to resign, she stood there on TV and blamed a video created in America which resulted in riots all over the Muslim world jeopardizing American lives to protect herself and the Administration. And if what she says is true, both of them need to resign. And there is no doubt in the wold that Susan Rice needs to resign! Because it shows that there isn’t any leadership coming our of that White House what so ever.
They all knew it was terrorism, ALL of them.. And yet our President DENIED it for two weeks because he didn't want to look bad at this critical time just before the election. . Charlene Lamb confirmed, they all knew it they even watched it as it was happening live .
No, Hillary is not going just admit responsibility and then expect us to just move on. This is more than when she “Miss-Spoke” about being fired on by snipers in Bosnia.
And how does that explain Obama’s flying off to fund raising with the Hollywood weirdos?
Sorry David, your post just don’t hold water, But I do hope that the Kool-aid your still drinking is a sweet flavor.


And by the way, as I said in my original post, She was in Peru when she made that statement. So as I said, you are entitled to your opinion, But you’re not entitled to your own facts. See below...

LIMA, Peru -- Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is answering Republican criticism of the Obama administration's handling of last month's attack at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, saying she -- not the White House -- is responsible for security at all of America's diplomatic missions.

I'm looking forward to the debate also. Can't wait to see how Obama tries to resuscitate himself from the last one.

Ed Bonderenka said...

I've felt, Like DebDudes said, if she's going to take responsibility for Benghazi, she should resign.
But I've also felt that Rice should resign in protest of having been so misled and misused and hung out to dry by her employers.
People died. Obama. Rice, Clinton, Biden lied.

Average American's predictions:

NOMObama will do much better than the first debate but it will be 2 little and 2 late.

Romney will do as well or slightly better than last time and will win the night.

Lamestreamenemedia will call it a NOMObama win--ERRONEOUSLY!!

Time to go watch the FUN!!

Z said...

I like that they're equal questions, don't you? (smile)

Mr Romney, how are you different than BUsh?

and

Mr. President, what are you going to do for me?
(there's a tough one)

I have NEVER heard of more lying and misrepresentation.

OOOOO...Romney got him back after the "Mr President what are you going to do?" He's so right: What did you do the last four years? Why are we in MORE debt, etc etc. One for Romney.

It's not looking good; Romney's sincere and in such earnest, Obama's glib...Glib usually wins with Americans.

Kid said...

actually if you're a dumbass loser, obama is making a lot of sense this time.

I'm done here at about 10:00. Candy has told romoney to shut up no less than 5 times and has yet to tell obama to shut up. Another fix is in load of BS nonsense.

Plus what's the value? If 'you' haven't been able to assimilate events over the last 4 years, then what makes 'you' think you're going to learn anything from a bad marketing campaign event.

duck? lib? chime in Lol.

Z said...

Kid, that's the whole thing: If Obama's so smart and with such great ideas now, where the heck WAS HE the last four years?

Romney didn't come back at him when Obama had the guts to say "Romney says we can't know his plans until he's elected!" I started laughing at the obvious comeback I would have given, but WHY didn't R say "and we couldn't know about obamacare until it was enacted, remember?"

ROmney's not hitting Obama back hard enough with the mistatements O's making about ROmney's plans.

Kid, you're right about Crowley...she's favoring Obama BIG TIME.......

WHY didn't Romney mention how MANY Green companies O invested our money in have gone BUST when Obama was bragging about GOING GREEN? DAMN!!

And Obama sent FORM LETTERS to families he never met...while he says he prayed with families!

Crowley finally shut Obama up in a filibuster (I'm listening as I type)

Impertinent said...

I loved it when Obummer said he was a "stong" supporter of 2A....except in Illinois apparently. No socialist wants the people armed...and the socialist peoples democratic republic of illinois is no different.

In a state where he was senator that has banned the 2nd amendment....and you can't get a weapon for personal use.....unless you're a PM ghetto dweller.

FrogBurger said...

Obama sounds like he's a barking dog when he speaks. I can't take it.

Z said...

WHERE THE HELL WAS OBAMA THE LAST FOUR YEARS IF HE'S AS SMART AND PUSHY AS HE'S ACTING NOW?

Kid said...

Z................

Why didn't romney mention the bankrupt 'green' companies ?

WHY didn't romney mention that 70 Percent of GM vehicles come from China. After the obama bailout........to save American jobs...

Geeez. :-]

Maybe lib or duck confi can 'splain that.

Z said...

I don't know, Kid; I sure can't.

I think ROmney was so thrown by Obama putting words in his mouth that he was fighting just to get the truth of what he wants to do out! It didn't leave a lot of time to do anything else.

How Obama mischaracterized Libya was beyond me. Actually, I can't wait til the fact checkers get going this time.

Ed Bonderenka said...

Romney did well.
The fast and furious response was great. Crowley had to deflect that.

Ed Bonderenka said...

Bret Baier just fact-checked the Libya question and Obama lied again.
I'm shocked! Shocked I tell ya.

Z said...

yahoo headline now "Romney promises not to cut tax rates of the rich"

can't get the nuance into a headline; YAHOO WINS! :-(

FrogBurger said...

From the 10 min I heard Crowley was clearly working for the Obama campaign. Pretty sad.

Ed Bonderenka said...

FrogBurger: Enjoy your vacation.

beamish said...

Romney "knows how to get the economy moving again" (he said many times)

So what's it going to take to get him to tell us? Waterboarding?

JonBerg said...

With regard to Romney's missed opportunities, mentioned above, I was disappointed, as well. B.O. probably looked pretty good to those who have no earthly clue about the economy or the truth about the Lybia situation. B.O. is quite adroit at obfuscation!

Impertinent said...

Here's what Mitt shoulda said..


"What Obama doesn’t want to believe is that Islamist thought and often actions are endemic through the Muslim world because to believe that would be to acknowledge that there is something systemically wrong with them that could not be blamed on us, the imperialists. Islam is, after all, their religious ideology. Jihad is their conception.

Obama will do everything possible not to face this. The failure to name Islamism in any form as a motivation for Major Hasan’s Fort Hood murder rampage is just one example of this problem but an obvious and telling one.

This inability to confront the issue in an honest way has ramifications in Benghazi because, if this problem is not to be taken seriously, then security really isn’t necessary. Al-Qaeda died with bin Laden. Of course now obviously it didn’t. Far from it. In fact, stamping out al-Qaeda is an extraordinarily difficult task because it doesn’t really exist like a conventional organization. It is for the most part an ideology and for that reason can metastasize easily under multiple names. Indeed it seems to be constantly metastasizing.

So when Obama goes on The View or Letterman he is hiding something far more significant than his choice between Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey. He is hiding his viewpoint on the war of civilizations.

It must feel very odd to him as one who grew up in atmosphere that assumed Western civilization was evil, at the same time that civilization gave him every honor and privilege. Now it’s yet more confusing as he is asked to defend the West against a deeply disturbed ideology that wants to engulf it.

Talk about something difficult to explain on The View. Or in a presidential debate. But I submit to you that is what is lurking beneath the debacle in Benghazi."

Z said...

WHAT THE..........????

I'm watching a Frank Luntz focus group of about 20 undecideds in NV, approx 65% of which voted for Obama in '08...they watched tonight and now approx 20% are supporting Obama....they all switched to Romney because he was "presidential" "forceful" etc..

Maybe I missed something?

I SURE HOPE SO.

Z said...

Washington Post FACT CHECK:

"What did Obama say in the Rose Garden a day after the attack in Libya? ”No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this nation,” he said.

But he did not say “terrorism”—and it took the administration days to concede that that it an “act of terrorism” that appears unrelated to initial reports of anger at a video that defamed the prophet Muhammad."

yup

I just watched more of it and Obama was full of merde.

A big sac a merde.

I had to stop watching. Things he said like "if we were serious about the deficit..." drove me nuts. It's been here for 4 years and never was serious about the deficit.

Or "we built enough pipeline to go around the Earth." I had to laugh at that one.

Sad but I'd almost for a French socialist president against this guy. He's just a mouth without any integrity.

Obama he's like the guy who's screwing around your office, does nothing and said we should have done it a certain way.

The guy you just want to shake up. Seriously.

Point 3 WE'LL SEE

Another 3 points in the RCP pol within a week. Pennsylvania will most likely become a real close nail-biter of a race. Romney needs to double-down there with more ads!
