What You Saw In Denver…

…You cannot unsee.

I watched clips of Obama’s speech in Madison, WI and how the zippy one liners and arrogant cadence were back. You know what else was back? The teleprompter. Although if you look at pictures coming out of that speech, you’ll see the teleprompters are cropped out. Well, in most stories they are but not all.

Too Late.

What was seen in Denver by over 70 million people cannot be unseen. Every single speech since this debate will be tainted. Anyone who watched that debate and then watches any other speech he gives will have the thought in the back of their heads, ‘Gee, the President sure was lost without his teleprompter telling him what to say’.

Much like an internet tough guy hiding behind his computer, Obama has proved in Denver that he hides behind his teleprompter. He has been for over 4 years.

The Friday Focus



Last night in Denver, Mitt Romney positively schooled President Obama. It almost made me feel bad for the President — Almost. President Obama was in dire need of being challenged and having his arrogance taken down a notch or two… or fifty. Romney was in total command from the opening question. He knew the numbers, the facts and the laws better than the President, whose ‘uh’s’ and um’s’ became increasingly annoying as the debate wore on. Mitt Romney thrashed President Obama.

We saw the clear choice between the candidates: One is a businessman who has worked his way up and sees the Presidency as a job and another one who is more engaged with the faculty lounge elite than reality, requires a teleprompter as a crutch and who regards the last four years as one celeb filled photo op. The President is one giant walking empty platitude and last night made that a stark reality. He’s about slogans, not solutions. If you doubt that check this out: Obama touts ‘new economic patriotism’ in post-debate Denver rally

New Economic Patriotism? Yes, Dear Leader. We obey. Frankly, that sounds like a new code word for Class Warfare. Keep an eye on the term and the rhetoric that goes with it.

Poor Biden is probably going to have a nervous breakdown before the VP debate next week; Paul Ryan is even better with numbers than Romney.

#DenverDebate: Romney destroys the #EmptyChair

Mitt Romney ate Barack Obama’s lunch last night.. and then also drank the President’s milkshake.

I went to bed grinning. Clint Eastwood’s shtick at the RNC was an Omen. This was Romney debating an empty chair. This morning I got up and this greeted me on Facebook as I logged in:
