WOW! What A Debate!

OK, yeah I am late to the post-presidential debate analysis which could take another post.
But, letting the reaction to the debate between Republican Mitt Romney and the Worthless Leader, President Obama, marinate made me realize that the whole debate was a deer caught in the headlights moment. Make that for 90 minutes for Team Obama and the Democrats.
I watched it twice to realize what a masterful job Mr. Romney did in totally deconstructing the whole three-plus years as an exercise in left-wing policies at its worst. And with ease at how he pointed the failures and what it would take to bring the moribund economy around.
But certain aspects need to be discussed before moving on.
First, it should be clear to all but the most die-hard Worthless Leader, President Obama's supporters, that not only is he an empty chair but hey, an empty suit as well.
The fact that the Worthless Leader, President Obama, does not feel any need for debate prep and that he is just sooo cool and awesome and all-knowing and all-seeing that the whole exercise is such a waste of time should come as insulting to anyone that has supported him.
But, sadly, it is not. Many are still just sooo into the dude that they would not care if he strangled a little kid on live television. For some, the delusion is that bad.
However, as I keep writing, there is a percentage of voters that can and will be moved to the Romney corner and it will be based on this debate.
It is because time after time when Mr. Romney went on offense, the Worthless Leader, President Obama, tried the professorial approach. To many, myself included, it showed a clear detachment that plagues leaders such as the Worthless Leader, President Obama.
Secondly, Mr. Romney could not have shown any more passion or care than he did this past Wednesday evening. Sometimes it was pretty excessive, but it has been Mr. Romney since he asked Congressman Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) to be his vice-presidential nominee. Yet the Obamawhore front guard media has not grasped this Mitt Romney.
Until now.
Thirdly, and this is for the aforementioned Obamawhore media. When they think that you are not in line, you become the punching bag that PBS' Jim Lehrer became by Thursday morning.
What was Mr. Lehrer's crime?
Why that he actually asked questions and allowed honest debate to occur between Mr. Romney and the Worthless Leader, President Obama. At one point, a belegard Worthless Leader, President Obama, begged Mr. Lehrer to move on to another topic. So, according to the Obama sycophants, why Mr. Lehrer "lost control" of the debate. And he did not ask follow up questions that could have helped the Worthless Leader, President Obama.
Uh, that is not a debate moderators role. It is simply to ask questions and the debaters within the time allotted. OK, maybe Mr. Lehrer appeared to be a little loose on that. But even there, the Worthless Leader, President Obama, spoke five minutes longer than Mr. Romney.
But what that shows is how horrible their guy, the Worthless Leader, President Obama, did during that debate.
But what about the debate itself?
It was Mr. Romney's awesomeness on full display.
Take this very apropos new one about big government:

Trickle-down government.

The left has loved to use the phrase "trickle-down economics", a phrase uttered by one David Stockman, the former head of the Office of Management and Budget, to deride the economic policies of then President Reagan.
But now Mitt Romney took that and stood it on it's head and slammed the big government, crony capitalism practiced with gusto by the current administration.
Nice open if I do say so myself.
Then Mr. Romney went on to the obvious point that it is the very middle class that the Worthless Leader, President Obama, claims to have been and wants to help.
Too bad that he hasn't.
Once again, he used in this case, the words of the worst vice-president evah, Dim Wit Joe Biden right back on the administration.
Read the following to grasp how easily Mr. Romney took down the all-caring middle-class Barack:

The people who are having the hard time right now are middle- income Americans. Under the president’s policies, middle-income Americans have been buried. They’re just being crushed. Middle- income Americans have seen their income come down by $4,300. This is a -- this is a tax in and of itself. I’ll call it the economy tax. It’s been crushing.

At the same time, gasoline prices have doubled under the president. Electric rates are up. Food prices are up. Health care costs have gone up by $2,500 a family. Middle-income families are being crushed.

Yup, we are being buried. And trust me, living in the once Golden State of California, with gas prices rising 20c overnight the day after the debate, we are being buried.
And from there, Mr. Romney went on to talk about his five-point plan to bring the economy back and hopefully begin to correct the excess's of Team Obama.
And that was the thrust of the Romney message.
That Team Obama had three-plus years to fix the mess and they have not. The so-called economic "stimulus". Epic fail. So-called health-care reform? Even more of an epic fail and the federal government all but taking over one-fifth of the national economy.
What Mr. Romney wants to do is create flexibility and allow for states to deal with some of these issues, such as health-care.
And I thought the best exchange between the two was about the role of the federal government.
For all the talk that somehow, Mr. Romney is some closet liberal, his defense of and extolling the virtues of the Declaration of Independence and the constitution was very much conservative and spot on.
What the debate showed is that this election is not only a clear choice but that the Worthless Leader, President Obama, has been the past three-plus years is an over rated empty suit. And when challenged, he folded like a house of cards. Which kind of explains how we are where we are, doesn't it?
