Democrats and the Liberal Media were in post-traumatic shock yesterday after
the Presidential debate on Wednesday night.
All but David Axelrod, Obama’s senior advisor, admitted that Obama blew
it. Van Jones: “Romney Out-Obama’d Obama.” Chris Matthews was simply beside himself with
rage that Obama let Romney win. As
Michelle Malkin wryly noted, the tingle is definitely gone.
you have to do better than simply repeat that your opponent is a liar. The supposed “tax-break” for outsourcing jobs
is mainly fiction. The fact is that the
U.S. has the highest corporate tax rate in the world. Companies will pick themselves up and go
someplace else if the taxes – and the labor rate – are lower. Another simple fact is that both China and
India have larger populations and as result, lower labor costs.
Obama was back out on the campaign trail, hale and hearty once more, bouncing
around like Rocky Balboa, proclaiming that he’ll come back stronger next time
and maintaining that Romney is a liar.
His behavior is rather like that of a yippy little dog that backs away
from the menace of a larger dog, but once the larger dog moves on, the little
mutt springs forward again barking furiously to prove how he drove off the
weak performance may have taken Romney by surprise; he certainly looked
surprised – and pleased. He mustn’t
count on Obama to make that mistake a second time. Stupid as it sounded, Al Gore may have been
right about the altitude, not to mention the traveling it took to get to Denver
from Las Vegas, and the late hour at which he arrived there, 2 p.m. There may have been other factors involved as
well, all of which were good for Romney.
The altitude may not have had anything to do with it, on the other hand;
Romney may have simply sucked all the oxygen out of the room.
next time they meet, the topic will be foreign policy. To a Conservative mind, it’s a clear disaster
for Obama, with our Libyan ambassador assassinated and the region in even more
upheaval than it was. There’s also the
problem of whether he has made a deal with Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood President
Morsi for the release of the Blind Sheikh.
The killing of Bin Laden is a plus in Obama’s column; the Arab “Spring”,
not so much. Let’s hope that Romney has
the courage to tackle this issue head on, and what a danger a potential Muslim
caliphate poses to the free world.
is in favor of decreasing our dependence on foreign oil. He also said he favored Green energy,
probably in a nod to Independent voters.
Independent voters can be strangely ignorant about the environment,
especially in regards to wind energy and even solar energy. They want to be seen as popular and “open-minded”
and accept the Green movement’s assertions without checking into the
facts. Wind energy is wildly expensive, notoriously
inefficient, ineffective, unreliable, and dangerous. There is no way to store the energy, predict
the wind and weather, or maintain the giant behemoth wind turbines. Wind developers earn all their money upfront,
with generous grants from the government.
Investment firms like Goldman Sachs made a fortune building the
machines, leaving the communities with all the problems. Because they’re so inefficient, it takes a
great number of these machines, whose manufacture is subsidized by the government
(think Solyndra), to create about 25 percent of the energy required by your
average community. Spain was on the
verge of bankruptcy because of its “investment” in wind turbines.
would do well to read up on the other side of wind energy before he endorses it
as president. There are problems with
solar energy as well. Solar panels do
represent a 45 percent reduction in energy costs for your typical business (or
home). But they cause their own
environmental impact problems including glare, fires, and theft. If you’re worried about global warming, solar
panels will contribute to it; they don’t just heat the inside of building but
throw off heat as well. In a state like
Arizona, they might work marvelously well.
In a state like New Jersey, well, that’s why Big Brother, a facilities
manager, reported a 45 percent reduction instead of 100 percent.
has another advantage in the foreign policy:
Obama’s image as a leader. The
statistics on his bowing average must be stupendous. Whether Romney will consider such a point
beneath him to make is the question.
Another fact is the billions of dollars Obama has spent on foreign
enemies. Then there’s the issue of
cutting military spending, until the United States is no better than a
second-world country. Obama is on record
as having stated this as one of his goals.
will be able to enter his next debate fairly confident, but he should be
prepared for more mudslinging. Obama
will still be on his high horse about the outsourcing of jobs to foreign
countries. The answer is to cut the
corporate tax rate. It’s that simple,
but something Obama will not do since he’s anti-capitalist and considers
corporations “evil empires.” Our double

are factions in those foreign countries who still look to America as the
greatest country on the earth, providing the most opportunities for
success. They still love their native
lands, like The Nephew’s girlfriend.
They want their countries to be more like America, at least the America
of Ronald Reagan, and hopefully, Mitt Romney.

the best advice we can give Mitt Romney:
continue in the same spirit.
