Mitt Romney won Tuesday night’s debate. Barack Obama lost Tuesday night’s debate. Why? Barack Obama failed to achieve his strategic aims. Mitt Romney succeeded in his strategic aims. Romney achieving his strategic aims is why Romney edge expands post-debate in Rasmussen tracking poll. But lets momentarily put the latest polls, even the valid ones, aside.
Recall the Obama convention. We wrote Why The Obama Convention Was A Big Fat Flop. The reason it was a flop, as we wrote was because Obama’s strategic aims for the convention were not achieved. Yes, the show was well done. Yes, Bill Clinton epitomized what a president should do and say – implement policies that succeed and be able to explain why, what, and how, to the nation on issue after issue and the direction he wants to go in. (What Bill Clinton cannot explain is why Obama is unable or unwilling to present or explain in a coherent fashion what Obama has done, what it has achieved, what he wants to do, and why he wants to do it.)
But the Obama convention willfully insulted organized labor in order to achieve one strategic aim: raise an army of volunteers that would win North Carolina and Virginia. Those strategic aims were to be achieved by “bookend” events which were supposed to attract hundreds of thousands – but both “bookend” events failed to take place due to lack of money and enthusiasm. That was a failure and now Romney will win North Carolina and Virginia. The Obama convention moved beyond failure and into catastrophe because the Obama convention additionally provided fodder on “God” and Jerusalem that Republicans can utilize to win Florida, Iowa, and other states.
When you fail in your strategic aims (think Pearl Harbor and the failure of the Imperial Japanese Task Force to achieve it’s strategic aims – sink the American aircraft carriers. The attack thrilled the Saki-soaked but smart admirals saw the failure for what it was immediately) you fail. The show at Pearl Harbor was a shocker, the show in Charlotte was fabulous – but strategic aims were not achieved. Result: failure.
Supporters of Barack Obama were happy Tuesday night because that wind-up clown toy they bought on vacation years ago, while drunk or drugged, the
The response of the Hopium Guzzlers in the Obama campaign has been to talk about anything but what the American people want to discuss. As Paul Tully instructed to generations of Democratic strategists when he constructed the “message box” you have to address and win on the issues that most concern the voter. Purposefully ignoring the important issues Obama Hopium Guzzlers want to talk about Big Bird and the binder. As noted by Mark Halperin: Team Obama jumps the binder
I think that's right. I hope it is. I am so done with Barack and ready for him to be over and gone back to Chicago or Hawaii or whatever rock he wants to live under.
I'm tired of him. I'm tired of the damage he's done.
Did you see Princess Barack on "The Daily Show"?
Isn't that sweet?
He can go on Comedy Central. Our delicate princess.
He can't face a press conference, of course.
But he knows Jon Stewart will only offer feather kisses. So he goes there or to "The View" or elsewhere if the hosts are not going to ask any tough questions and just kiss his ass.
As bad as Barack's been the last four years, the press has been so much worse.
And the worst offender is the little monkey in the suit, Jon Stewart. What a kiss-ass. What a wuss. And he's not a reporter. Or a journalist.
He's an idiot comedian.
A fact he seems to forget each year as he believes his own press and thinks he's something special.
It's amazing how many males in the age of Barack have surrendered their masculinity. Jon Stewart is among the worst. He's become a 9-year-old school girl mooning over an older boy.
Barack needs to go. Before he can do more damage, he needs to be voted out of the White House. He's damaged democracy, damaged the world and damaged the Democratic Party. If he's sent packing after one term, there is a chance we can get back on the right page, the Democratic Party. If he's a two-termer, the Democratic Party is the Republican Party but pro-abortion and pro-LGBT. All the economic policies are the same as are the war policies. That's not the party I signed up for.
