To pretend that Romney hit one out of the park in Wednesday night's debate is polyannish at best.

Did he "win" the debate?


But he has to get better if he is going to win the election.

As for Obama, he was the most unpresidential debater I have witnessed in my 70 years.

His body language was submissive and insecure. He had no "barbs" to effectively use and did not outline any sort of plan with any specifics for his second term.

He did better than I thought he would without his TelePrompTer, but sounded like his preparation took the form of "if Romney says this, you say this." It was stilted and empty.

"Big Bird" was one of the focuses of the MSM the morning after. That, of course, in response to Romney's inclusion of PBS as one of the programs he would cut.

All three of the networks I watched Thursday morning, CBS's "CBSThis Morning," NBC's "Today Show," and ABC's "Good Morning America" all claimed that President BO (the child president) made a big mistake in leaving Bain Capital, exports to China and a couple of other issues "on the cutting floor" (a phrase used by all three networks).

Truth is, PBO (tcp) HAD to leave them "on the cutting floor" or he would have been sliced to pieces over them, since they are not true.

All in all, the debate leaned in favor of Mitt Romney, but I sure hope he does not rest on his laurels.

He'll have to be prepared for a full frontal attack, as well as a number of sneaky assaults from the rear.

If he let's up or is unprepared, he will sink his own ship.

Let's pray that that does not happen.

Flip. Flop.

Now, now. As Al Gore suggested, Obama was off his game because of oxygen deprivation. He simply was not acclimated to the thin air in the Mile-High City. And who would know more about the dangers of the environment than global warming guru Al Gore?

XO: For you to accuse Romney of flip-flopping when you have as your "leader" the absolute, undefeated king of flip flopping (as documented in many of my previous posts) is just laughable.

LR: "...who would know more about the dangers of the environment than global warming guru Al Gore?"

You and me...that's who.

President BO might have been deprived of oxygen, be he was even more deprived of substance, intelligence and the ability to express himself.

And that from the "smartest president ever to have held the office."

He is, in fact, a dunce.

He does not know the history of this country (not even how many states we have), the history of the world, anything about international relations (think Lybia, Egypt, etc.), absolutely nothing about finance and nothing about leadership.

He equates leadership with power.

He (along with his followers) is a fool.

You beat me to it, XO.

Good 'ol Etch-a-Sketch Romney.

Jack Welch, the former CEO of GE, stood by his tweet calling Friday's unemployment rate of 7.8 percent "unbelievable."

"I have no idea where this number came from," he told Fox News. "I don't know what the right number is, but I'll tell you these numbers dont smell right when you think about where the economy is right now."

Following Friday's report that the unemployment rate fell to 7.8 percent, Welch wrote in a tweet: "Unbelievable jobs numbers..these Chicago guys will do anything..can't debate so change numbers."

Welch wasn't the only one offering conspiracy theories though; Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) wrote on his Facebook page that the unemployment rate fell below 8 percent through "manipulation of data" and CNBC personality Rick Santelli said "I told you they'd get it under 8 percent -- they did! You can let America decide how they got there!"

The unemployment numbers don't come from the White House and can't be manipulated.

If they could be manipulated they would have been better numbers for a long time.

Are you stupid?
