Obama brings knife to gun fight

I've always said if you get President Obama mad, you'll win the debate. It is a hallmark of a spoiled child: he gets angry easily if he doesn't get his way or if something goes wrong.

That's what Governor Mitt Romney accomplished Wednesday night when he eviscerated the president's rebuttals and empty explanations of his administration's failed policies. He got under the man's skin and exposed him for the first time publically.

Romney realizes it's that very temperment--that seething arrogance--that has helped put our nation in the impossible bind we find ourselves. We now are reminded when we see old 2002 videos of his early orations of black liberation theology, Reverand Wright included, in which Obama propounds his views of America as the white bitch that she is.

The anger which the president manifests in such screeds are accompanied with black y'all southern speak, which  further indicates the shallow nature of this man, always pandering to the crowd, always just loving the one he's with.

Wednesday night was the beginning of the undoing of the small, inexperienced man with the big ego and little real life knowledge--the man who calls Iran background art, and our allies simply art. He is a man who looks at our nation as a hanger on to the old ways, something he consideres archaic and inappropriate in his new world view, something to snort and sneer at. Something to defeat and transform into something most of us really do not want once we've seen what it is, having been delivered by the banjo strumming president.

The next three debates--two presidential and one vice-presidential--should provide even more insight into the regime that is running and ruining our lives. As importantly, we look forward to cogent, realistic policy from a changed Republican party who has come to know what the priorities are facing our nation. I believe we have the opportunity to finally elect a candidiate we can feel enthusiastic about and trust enough to tell us his truth, as well as our own. The left in this country has defined the Republicans for far too long, so much that it's really difficult for the non-politically inclined to recognize the right, middle or left of the GOP.

The prepared and aggressive Mitt Romney went a long way in telling us who he is and many times, reminding Obama that he was not the man the tenacious, fibbing president insisted he was. It became amusing after a while: Who are you going to believe, me or your lying eyes? Even more amusing is that the president continued the next day by saying the real Mitt Romney did not show up on Wednesday night.

But then, being a Democrat is never having to say you're sorry...or wrong...or off base...or have lied...or have misled....or that you're really angry...

Thanks for the read.
