Americans, I think, finally realize that the man up on that stage trying to best Romney was not a President.
A president has a record of accomplishment - or failure. Obama could not act as President in the capacity of substantively citing anything he’s done, because he’s failed on every count. Accurate recitation of his factual record is bleak, grim and miserable.
The BS “I’m the President and she works for me” crap aside, the only things he had to say were tear downs of Romney’s plans (as his handlers see it).
His own plans? Meaningless tripe he’s drug up and rehashed from his 2008 campaign. Ultimately, drastically less substantive than anything in Romeny’s plans.
So, who was up on that stage with Romney? Just another slick talking empty suit CANDIDATE with no substance...nope, NOTHING Presidential there
Some americans - maybe. But the truth is as Romney stated, that 47% of the country is on the dole in one form or another, and by far the bulk of the 47% will vote for whoever promises them the most loot from the rest of us. H. L. Mencken said:
The state, or, to make matters more concrete, the government, consists of a gang of men exactly like you and me. They have, taking one with another, no special talent for the business of government; they have only a talent for getting and holding office. Their principal device to that end is to search out groups who pant and pine for something they can't get, and to promise to give it to them. Nine times out of ten that promise is worth nothing. The tenth time it is made good by looting "A" to satisfy "B". In other words, government is a broker in pillage, and every election is a sort of advanced auction on stolen goods.The 47% see this as a good thing. They are used to receiving and indeed feel strongly that they're entitled to the "stolen goods" provided by the rest of us via the armed robbers of government. Or to put it another way, if you rob Peter to pay Paul, then you can count on the unconditional support of Paul.
Several of the characteristics Present Obama exhibited again last night, he never answered a question, he talked in circles, he blatantly lied (although in his “world”..who knows), he treated Romney as the incumbent, he seemed stunned when Romney pointed out specific admin failures.
