I'm real fed up of seeing the good guys lose so I waited all day to watch the debates.
I was sure Obama would kick the spazzy ass of a man who dismissed forty seven percent of our people. Jews and gays comprise a lot less than ten percent of the population and they are EVERYWHERE. Imagine how many non- 53 percenters are crawling around bellyaching in between schemes to game the system.
I sensed early on in the debate that Obama was either too busy contemplating a twenty year wedding anniversary's poetic ramifications, or that he'd underestimated his rival. Underestimation is a serious problem for us all, at certain times.
I tried to make it more fun by adding words to Romney's answers.
For instance when Mitt said stuff like, " I was in Nevada and a man pulled me over and said I am hurting I don't have a job."
I added, " So, of course, I called the cops."
Then Romney said something about how some woman pulled Anne Romney aside, and said something like, "Help me I am out of a job for a year and can't afford food."
I added with a decent Mitt Romney impression", " Anne then called the police on that victim face too. You don't pull on Anne's Anne Taylor sweater."
It wasn't Obama's finest hour . Maybe he made the mistake of taking the high road. Maybe, he was just tired or unprepared. He'll do fine next time . All this noise is due to the fact that TV scheduling executives have 24 hours to fill.
I never thought Obama had it in him to be any great president so my expectations have never been big with him.
He's too cool. Too poised. I think he knows how to pose his face for maximum attractiveness while Romney makes these awful mealy expressions.
Obama gives those Julia Roberts smiles. It's as if he got too many compliments on his dazzling smile and so he smiles. Yesterday, he smiled so broadly when there was nothing smile worthy going on. Like Ms. Roberts, he smiles from the teeth and not the mouth and eyes. Still, I'm dazzled.
I think any great man or woman will never be president. The greats are too hysteric and too overwhelmed to rise in such ranks. If they do, then they rail artfully, and then promptly get assassinated .
I'm guessing Lincoln, with his melancholy or "mental health issues" was a once in a lifetime leader. But, then I've never seen the man debate or heard enough opinions about him from the rapscalians in CNN's " Spin Room."
That is not a joke. The CNN proudly admits that there cast of commentators live, love, eat, pray, learn, earn, and spin from such a room called the "Spin Room." Ask Candy Crowley (or Wolf Blitzer,) if you don't believe me.
Watching the debates I had to again concede that I cannot for the life of me understand revenue and taxation and the meaning of trillion dollars debts. I doubt I'll learn before I die. But, then I never thought I'd learn so much legalese either . I don't think I'll ever know the meaning of mulch.
Truth is that aside of the big stuff like human rights and humanity, I'll vote for Obama for two specific and stupid reasons.
One: He is hilarious at those White House Correspondence Press dinners. I'm convinced he writes his own material.
Second: Though Obama grew up in Hawaii, I cannot picture him in a Hawaiin shirt ,while I can picture Romney in one.
You see, I am looking up exotic retirement destinations. Which is kind of funny since I am not yet 44 years old. And, I am by no stretch of the imagination, in possession of a nest egg, that makes that even feasible. Still, I google such things.
I find blogs with expats and I dismiss places because these retiree expat men are wearing Hawaiin shirts. Don Ho, Elvis, and a young Tom Seleck (possibly) are the only people who have made it work.
