The media is proclaiming it a victory for the Republican Party and Romney. Who would have guessed that the same rich guy's son, who protested in favor of the Vietnam draft, but skipped off to Paris, France, when his number came up, (lingering there for four deferments) would show up at his first presidential debate, and take his fifth deferment from the Republican Party Platform and claim to be for the 100%.
Didn't he call 47% moochers?
It was as though a confused Romney had over rehearsed, was overcooked, and adopted the Democratic Platform. An out of body experience, like one flying out of the cuckoo's nest, he muddled through his answers, looking desperate, nearing hysteria, dripping sweat, the moderator fast asleep at the wheel, President Obama attempting to awaken him; lie after lie after lie, fact checked and proven to be lie after lie.
But who's counting?
"Did he just say Obama was in favor of 'trickle down economics'?"
Republicans called Romney victorious! Some confessed if he just showed up it would be a victory.
Suddenly, the same stumbling, bumbling corporate raider, who made millions sending jobs to China and squirreling away profits on the Grand Cayman Islands, was in the spotlight for his first presidential debate.
The guy whose adventures abroad became known as "Romneyshanble," by the British, and managed to step to his ankles in controversy wherever he traveled, nestling up to Israel's Netanyahu, agreeing that a preventive strike on Iran's nuclear facility was necessary.
Yikes! Get him back home before he starts WWIII.
"Oh sweet Jesus," said a newscaster when Romney attempted his cheer leading skills. Another called his campaign a, "...rolling calamity."
Newscasters never asked Romney any follow up questions and missed the real story and are screaming at Obama for their collective neglect. "He should have, could have, would have…"
Obama? He looked and sounded Presidential at the debate. He did not sweat. He never distorted his position. Didn't have to. Maybe the Syrian attack on Turkey was more relevant? But watch out.
Remember: General Motors is alive and Osama bin Laden is dead.
