Why is this man still smiling? He has been caught lying at every turn.

Why is this man still smiling?   He has been caught lying at every turn.  He was completely destroyed by Romney in the debate.  He has failed at everything and I mean everything.  What he has done to healthcare is disastrous.  He promised an Arab Spring what he gave us is a nuclear winter of global Islamic jihad.   So why is he still smiling?

But wait!  Now  we have news of his most breathtaking irresponsibility.   He low balled his estimate for the deficit this year by half a trillion dollars!  To underscore how astounding this is the Washington Times said: 

“In May 2009, President Obama released his updated budget estimates, which projected that the federal deficit for fiscal year 2012 would be $557 billion. The Congressional Budget Office now says that the deficit for fiscal year 2012 (which ended on September 30) was about $1.1 trillion — or about twice what Obama said it would be. In other words, Obama’s estimate was off by more than half a trillion dollars.

To put this colossal error into perspective, at the time that Obama was elected, the United States had never once had a deficit as large as Obama’s error would prove to be. Our largest deficit as of November 4, 2008 (the day that Obama beat John McCain) had been $459 billion. Since 2008, we’ve now run up more than $1 trillion in deficit spending for four consecutive years, totaling more than $5 trillion.”

How can anyone bungle the economy that bad?  No one can point to a single benefit from his presidency.  Everyone will feel the damage of his arrogance for years to come.  Yet, there he is undeterred and unmoved.  Why?  Because he believes he is going to win no matter what he says or does.

He knows that he owns the vilest political confederacy ever inflicted on the United States.  His confederacy includes, corrupt unions, a compliant news media, Islamic leaders, foreign money and the most dangerous gang of all:  Americans addicted to government handouts.

 There are good signs however.   The debate broke the hedge around Obama.   According to John Nolte, “In 2008, President Barack Obama won the independent vote over John McCain by a margin of eight points, 52-44. This morning, a new Battleground Poll has Mitt Romney massacring Obama among indies by a whopping 16 points, 51-35.

Then he shows us the how the lap dog can media can still spin this in Obama’s favor. Polls:  “That’s a 24-point swing among independents since 2008, a group that makes up anywhere from a quarter to a third of voters, and yet Battleground still has Obama in the lead 49-48…?

But if I’m skeptical of those bottom-line numbers, our journalist overlords who have chosen to palace guard instead of question will declare me a “truther.”  The Battleground Poll also shows an 13 point enthusiasm gap in Romney’s favor. Only 73% of Obama’s supporters are “extremely likely” to vote, compared to 86% of Romney’s supporters.

Obama owns the vilest political confederacy ever inflicted on the United States.  His confederacy includes, corrupt unions, a compliant news media, Hollywood, Islamic leaders, foreign money and the most dangerous gang of all:  Americans addicted to government handouts.

I am as giddy as you that Obama was finally exposed before 67 million people for the incompetent leader he is but we still need a miracle.   Our nation is not facing a takeover; she was taken over 4 years ago.  We are fighting to get our freedom back. This election can be stolen and manipulated.

It will take the most intense effort ever.  Let every preacher understand that your silence and inaction at this crucial time will be remembered.   Under normal circumstances we should not be political, but these are not normal circumstances.  Obama will drive the church underground and he will turn America into a wasteland that is controlled by global powers.

What do we need to do to stop him? 

  1. Pray for the spirit of deception over the nation to be obliterated in Jesus’ name.
  2. Vote and take someone to vote with you.  Do not be afraid to challenge believers about their vote.  If they are voting for Obama ask them how that is possible.
  3. Talk to your pastor. If he is still on the fence respectfully disagree.  Remember the quote from Bonhoeffer “Silence in the face of evil is evil.  God will not hold us guiltless.  Not to speak is to speak.  Not to act is to act.”  Tell your pastor that you and many others will back him all the way.
  4. Understand that not voting is a vote for Obama.

Don’t be fooled. The debate was a big deal.

Don’t Be Fooled, That Debate Was a Big Deal

By Chris Stirewalt

Mitt Romney beat the britches off of President Obama in their first debate, including the devastating sound bite “you’ve been president for four years.”

It was the most-watched debate in 20 years and was the most decisive victory by a challenger in at least that long, but to look at the news today, you might be tempted to think it really didn’t matter.

Another month of essentially flat job growth is being trumpeted as just the comeback the president needed, with reporters, addicted to the top-line unemployment rate, freaking out about the fact that the measure fell below 8 percent.

(Power Play will spare you another lecture on the irrelevancy of this measure in a stagnant economy. The number to watch to know how people are really doing is the larger measure of those unemployed, underemployed and those who have given up work, which held steady at 14.7 percent.)

Certainly the very presence of an avalanche of favorable, if misleading, economic headlines will give the president a boost. And he certainly needs one given his botch on Wednesday.

The most effective spin from Team Obama so far has been that this kind of thing happens all the time – that incumbents always have trouble in their first debates. Why, just look at Ronald Reagan in 1984 and George W. Bush in 2004, they were off their game, came back and won.

While the long-term spin from Obama and his campaign is that Romney is a liar and a phony who only won by taking advantage of an incumbent too tirelessly committed to honest politics and detailed answers, the most urgent matter is to get the establishment press to minimize the importance of the president’s loss.

Some reporters were on that buggy right away, talking about the “debate curse” of the incumbent even before the first Big Bird Twitter meme had begun. The “curse” concept is picking up speed as is the expectation on the right and left that Obama will be back on his game by the time the two men meet up again for a town-hall debate at Hofstra University.

There is lots of truth in that. The president will come back strong and certainly there will be a phalanx of reporters there to say that the old magic is back and that Obama looked potently presidential.

The Romney Obama contest was the most watched first debate since 1980, when an estimated 80 million viewers watched the only contest between President Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan

But don’t be fooled into thinking that what happened on Wednesday was not a massive moment for the race.

Consider the margin of victory. The most frequent comparison for the Obama-Romney debate was that of John Kerry’s win over George W. Bush in the first debate of 2004. Certainly Bush did himself no favors by looking annoyed with his opponent and by muffing several answers.

Since the conventional wisdom holds that this election is a replay of the narrow contest of 2004, with Romney filling the role of doomed Massachusetts politician destined to come just short of victory against an embattled incumbent, the Kerry v. Bush comparison is like catnip on the Obama press plane.

But does it fit?

When CNN polled debate viewers about who won the 2004 match up, 53 percent said Kerry had won, while 37 percent said Bush won, the remaining 10 percent call it a tie – it was a decisive win that helped Kerry erase what had been a steady lead for Bush heading into the home stretch. It was the magic moment for the challenger who seemed headed for a big defeat.

How did Romney score by comparison? CNN’s post-debate poll this time found 67 percent believed Romney won compared to 25 percent for Obama, with 8 percent calling it a draw. Based on debate scores alone, the “cursed” Bush of 2004 looks like Daniel Webster compared to Obama.

What about eyeballs? More than 62 million viewers watched Kerry and Bush duke it out eight years ago. For Romney and Obama, it was more than 67 million, plus millions more watching online.

The Romney Obama contest was the most watched first debate since 1980, when an estimated 80 million viewers watched the only contest between President Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan. This year’s mile-high smackdown was the most watched of any debate since the second contest of 1992.

And it’s that debate that may prove the most instructive for this year. That was the first-ever town-hall contest, pitting struggling incumbent George H.W. Bush against challengers Bill Clinton and Ross Perot.

That was the debate in which Bush, already tagged as out-of-touch, kept checking his watch as if to say “Are we done here? I have a government to run.” Obama’s grimacing, downcast look said very much the same thing, as did his dismissive tone toward the challenger. Voters didn’t think Bush the elder had earned a second term and wanted to see him work for it. The same is true for Obama.

You will see lots of stories suggesting that today’s jobs report will put Obama back on track. But Bush the elder actually had an improving economy in 1992, measurably better than the one Obama is lugging this time.

While media slant will help Obama make lemons out of lemonade at every moment possible, it isn’t enough to roll back what happened on Wednesday when Mitt Romney all at once became a plausible alternative.

With voters hungry for change in Washington, that’s a perilous thing for Obama.

Romney destroys Obama in debate. Who won? CNN poll: Romney 67% Obama 25% Even Van Jones says Obama lost.

Denver, Colorado (CNN) – Two-thirds of people who watched the first presidential debate think that Republican nominee Mitt Romney won the showdown, according to a nationwide poll conducted Wednesday night.

According to a CNN/ORC International survey conducted right after the debate, 67% of debate watchers questioned said that the Republican nominee won the faceoff, with one in four saying that President Barack Obama was victorious.
“No presidential candidate has topped 60% in that question since it was first asked in 1984,” says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland.

While nearly half of debate watchers said the showdown didn’t make them more likely to vote for either candidate, 35% said the debate made them more likely to vote for Romney while only 18% said the faceoff made them more likely to vote to re-elect the president.

More than six in ten said that president did worse than expected, with one in five saying that Obama performed better than expected. Compare that to the 82% who said that Romney performed better than expected. Only one in ten felt that the former Massachusetts governor performed worse than expected.

“This poll does not and cannot reflect the views of all Americans. It only represents the views of people who watched the debate and by definition cannot be an indication of how the entire American public will react to Wednesday’s debate in the coming days,” cautions Holland.

WASHINGTON (CBSDC) — President Obama’s former environmental jobs czar believes his former boss lost the debate.

Van Jones, President Obama’s former special adviser for green jobs, said on CNN that the president was not ready for Wednesday night’s debate against Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

“I think he took Romney too lightly. I think he did not expect Romney to throw that kind of heat,” Jones explained.
Jones added: “Romney was able to ‘out-Obama’ Obama. On the connection piece, on the authenticity piece, on the being able to tell the story.”

Jones said Obama’s game-plan set him up for failure.

Several other Democratic pundits, including James Carville, Andrew Sullivan and Michael Moore, believed that Romney won Wednesday’s debate.

A CNN poll found that 67 percent believe Romney won the debate, compared to only 25 percent for Obama.

Jones resigned from his White House position in September 2009 after signing a petition saying that the 9/11 attacks might have been an inside job orchestrated by former President George W. Bush.
