Up for Debate: Obama vs. Romney, round 2

Tuesday, October 16, 2012 at 1:23am

After a flat-footed performance by Obama and Big Bird jabs from Romney in the first presidential debate of this election, how do you feel Tuesday night's debate — set to be a town-hall style format on both foreign and domestic policy — will go for both candidates? Who do you predict will "win" round 2?

Well, we agree on one thing, Loner. We just pay our government now and they do what their masters tell them to do... and that ain't us.

We need a complete turnover of Congress. That is, of course, if Romney wins. If Obama wins, they will stay in his pocket.

And if Obama could usurp it in 2008 with Congress' support, why can't he in 2012?

The only time the legislators talk to their "bosses" is when they are on a campaign telling us why we should keep them in office.

Snippet:
October 11, 2002

In a major victory for the White House, the Senate early Friday voted 77-23 to authorize President Bush to attack Iraq if Saddam Hussein refuses to give up weapons of mass destruction as required by U.N. resolutions.

Hours earlier, the House approved an identical resolution, 296-133.

Joe Biden voted to invade, as did Hillary Clinton, Chuck Schumer and a bunch of other hawkish "liberals".

The DIE consortium calls the plays in the big games and support for Defense, Israel & Energy is, in aggregate, quite bipartisan. This is "Loner's Complaint".....Hmmmm. maybe I'll write a missive or a complete book with that title....."Portnoy's Complaint" was a commercial success and, as the Rasp pointed out, I need to make a pile of cash....to prove my worth to society.

There was a big difference between Bush and Obama on attacks, Loner. Bush asked for and received permission from Congress. Obama didn't. He attack Libya without asking. He only had that responsibility if it was a response to an attack on us. He then has a number of days to get Congress permission or cease fire. He didn't.

Obama has said the Constitution needs to be changed. I guess he means he will re-write in for us.

And interesting brochure on Obama through the Washington Examiner. If I find it again, I'll post it.

The fall leaves in the mountains yesterday are getting near their fall glory. I suggest that if you want to see this wonder of nature ,the next few days will be worth the trip.

The mountains in North Carolina and the Cumberland Mountain are near perfect to view yesterday.

Six trolls and a pontification expert from New York have 52 posts this morning or roughly 93% of the verbage. This could be a sign that incest has taken over this forum.

I would sniff your armpit to see if the smell might be coming from the "simple six"

By: Moonglow1 on 10/16/12 at 8:52

From Loner: "We will be at war with Iran soon, probably by next fall, regardless of who wins the presidency....if BHO wins, we will be reluctantly dragged into it...if Bishop Romney wins, we will willingly jump into it. Either way, the DIE consortium will call the shots, while the American public watches television."

Loner, I am in 100 percent agreement with your analysis.

A vote for Romney is a vote for Adelson and thus all things Israel. We may as well annex Israel and make it one of our states.

Rasputin, you morally bankrupt bigot, if you're looking for a simpleton, you need go no further than the closest mirror.

Rasputin, that is, not you Captain.

He is also a liar and a coward. I took him up on his offer to meet, but now he hides behind his imaginary grandson. True fashion for a troll.

I bet he sniff yogis butt if he got the chance, Ummm. lol

By: Ummm... on 10/16/12 at 9:03

You didn't really expect him to meet with you, did you Captain? After all, that would expose his phony 1%er persona- can't let you see the man behind the curtain, you know.

Looks like the apple didn't fall far from the tree, Nemo.

Loner, the old adage is, "why buy the cow when the milk is free?"

That's one response, thank you, Ummmm.....the Market Test is still open for responses.

I am interested in Rasp's response...after all, his taunting may have inspired me to make a pile of cash....a controversial, successful novel may be the quick route to wealth for the Lone One....I do have the time...the tools and hopefully the talent to do it....Is attacking the conventional wisdom that underpins the US-Israel "Special Relationship" the quick route to fame and fortune...and also the right thing to do?

Right now, I pontificate for free...to a few jaded NCP posters....but, since I am banned on the Jerusalem Post, maybe I have something worth saying....I can offer an alternative appraisal of the "unshakeable relationship", from a secular, American patriot's point of view....who knows, somebody might buy it....I would be branded as a "Jew-hater" immediately...that notoriety could lead to profit too...Kerching!

By: Blanketnazi2 on 10/16/12 at 9:08

Loner, are you familiar with the author, Tim Wise? He lives here in Nashville.

By: Ummm... on 10/16/12 at 9:09

Consider it carefully, Loner. And be prepared to encounter the "strange bedfellows" you might attract- I don't know if you're going (or have already gone) bald, but I doubt you would want to hang out with skinheads, for example.

I hope that wasn't for Loner's eyes only, Blanket. Very interesting, and spooky too, having been posted five days before 9/11.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 10/16/12 at 9:17

It was for anyone who wants to read it. And remember, Tim is a Jew.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 10/16/12 at 9:20

His take on Israel is very interesting.

By: pswindle on 10/16/12 at 9:21

PRESIDENT IS THE BETTER MAN. i CAN'T GET OVER WHEN ANN ROMNEY EXPRESSES HER DESIRE TO HELP KEEP MITT'S TEMPER UNDER CONTROL. WE DO NOT NEED A PRESIDENT THAT CAN GET OUT OF CONTROL, AND WE KNOW THAT HE IS A BULLY. A MAN THAT CAN GO INTO A BUSINESS AND CLOSE THEM DOWN AND TAKE ALL OF THE MONEY INCLUDING PENSIONS IS A MAN WITHOUT A HEART. HE WILL TAKE EVERYTHING THAT HE CAN FROM THE MIDDLE CLASS AND GIVE TO HIS BUDDIES AT THE TOP.

By: Ummm... on 10/16/12 at 9:21

He isn't the only one who questions zionism, Blanket- one of the reasons I'm hopeful that Bibi will get the boot in the near future.

By: Loner on 10/16/12 at 9:26

Thanks for the tip, Bn...I went to a site that had some of Tim Wise's quotes...he sounds a lot like Mike Burch?

Then I went to the site that you offered: his rant about Zionism...I only glanced it over, as it is fairly heavy reading, I'll have to read it carefully and that takes time...right now, it's time for another latte......

By: Blanketnazi2 on 10/16/12 at 9:26

Zionism is a scary thing indeed.

Hey, did anyone see the news clip of the restaurant owner who was trying to wipe Mitt's face for him? I was waiting for Mitt to have a meltdown. LOL

By: Blanketnazi2 on 10/16/12 at 9:27

Loner, I've lived here quite a while now and I can guarantee you those are two separate people. :)

Enjoy your latte! Sounds yummy.

By: Captain Nemo on 10/16/12 at 9:43

He did what I expected Ummmm. All Bullies or cowards and when confronted they all turn and run. Yogi always wants to whip someone, but does is from the safety of his cave. Bud hide under her bridge and p3 make whizzing from Madison. Rasputin is a little cleverer; by pretending to be something he is not. However is still a bully, but in the end he hides like all cowards.

By: Captain Nemo on 10/16/12 at 9:45

Interesting Blanket.

By: yogiman on 10/16/12 at 9:51

Well, well. I see where Sect. of State Clinton has taken the blame for the Benghazi murders... the day before the next debate. Convenient, isn't it?

It's going to be interesting to see if she offers to resign or Barry asks her to. Since he's the "President", isn't he also to blame?

The way he "stole" the office from her, could she be fighting back?

Excuse me, dumba$$,

I see you as a bully. You're constantly making idiotic comments to and about people you feel superior to but your pea sized brain is too inferior to even make you mentally equal.

But hang in there, you might learn how to keep your mouth shut one of these days. You should be careful approaching someone physically exposing you ignorance.

Its reported that ''Mittens'' will respond to debate questions by breaking out in song.
Recent polling has determined that most undecided voters, like musicals.
The ''Mitt'' will do tunes from ''Oklahoma.'' Its said that Mitt sounds exactly like Gordon McCrae.

By: yogiman on 10/16/12 at 10:32

Where do you fit in that category, B2?
