First World Problems

Funny on so many levels.

Will the Real Obama please stand up?

May I have your attention please?
May I have your attention please?
Will the real Obama please stand up?
I repeat, will the real Obama please stand up?
We're gonna have a problem here..
Obama's supporters are saying that that was not the real Mitt Romney on the stage (it was an imposter - a liar) and that Obama was flustered by the magnitude of Romney's lies.

What Mitt needs to respond is to say that what we saw was the real Obama. The Obama without a teleprompter; an Obama challenged, not simply on what he plans to do but on the foundation of his ideas and his accomplishments (or lack thereof).

Romney did exactly what he needed to do. He came across as competent, a leader and able to command the big stage. The One, well to his supporters he came across as tired; as suffering from altitude sickness (I'm surprised Gore didn't blame Global Warming). To his detractors Obama came across as often does: as spoiled and petulant.

UPDATE: 10/5/2012 Video showing Obama supporters asked if it was fair that Obama wasn't able to use his teleprompter during the debate.

And some people think that Obama supporters / Democrats are more intelligent and more educated than Republicans and those opposed to Democratic Party policies?

Romeny Ahead in the Polls (or soon will be)

And now the pundits will say that the election turned on this debate. No. Romney was already winning but he is now cementing the deal. I think that the Chicago machine threw everything they had this past summer in order to discredit Romney. I think they have only two cards left in their hand: the race card (Republicans are racists) and Mormons are a cult (with a racist past).

I think the Dems will try to depress the evangelical and catholic vote through push-polls and articles (can't trust a mormon - they're weird with magic underwear) and try to energize the black and latino vote with generic "republicans are racist" tactics.

I hope these tactics don't work - they still may. But we are seeing the end of this game. With more and more elected black and latino republicans this meme is coming to an end.
