Romney's Debate Zinger — Show Up As Barack Obama . . .
The President was largely shadow boxing at the October 3rd debate, his opponent disappeared and reappeared as him. Romney's carefully choreographed performance was a perfect rendition of Barack Obama. Like Obama, he too wants more teachers, and like Obama, he will provide insurance for preexisting illness, and keep young adults on their parent's insurance. He will also allow the exempted Hispanics to remain in the country, and what had been his 59 point plan became Barack Obama's 5 point plan, duplicating it in every category except one . . .
Before our eyes Romney disappeared. His tax plan of 18 months no longer existed, and what was left looked like the President's tax plan. Before that he adopted the president's energy plan, and other things, and on October 8th he took to the airways as a pretend president, touting a pretend foreign policy plan, that is largely Barack Obama's foreign policy plan, all the while using Obama phrases like "trickle down" and "5 Points," so that he could sound like him too. In the end he was so out of his element that it took a cheat sheet to pull it off.
The President expected to debate Romney on their differences, but Romney declared there are no differences, but at the same time he declared the president is failing, even though the President is using the policies Romney claimed as his . . . It is no wonder the President was confused since, the only time Romney showed up at the debate, is when he went off script while addressing the moderator, and ended up declaring his intent to defund public broadcasting, taking specific aim at Big Bird.
Romney is using a tactic media often uses to deceive, namely, claiming things are the same, "both ways," so that confusion reigns, and people are unable to discern the truth. An example is when CNN neutralized the effect of Romney's lies by suggesting that Obama lied too. They accomplished this by calling Obama's claim of creating nearly 5million jobs over the past 30 months untrue. To demonstrate this they subtracted all of the jobs that were lost following the Bush Administration, from the jobs Obama created, then, to infer that Bush deserved shared credit for the jobs Obama created, they put his' name on display beside Obama's when they identified the "net job gains." Both propositions are untrue. Obama did create 5 million private sector jobs, even if it resulted in a "net gain" of 125,000 jobs, and George Bush deserves no credit for the jobs that Obama created. By CNN's analysis, if you earn $12,000 while you have $6,000 in debt, you would be making a false statement if you say you earned $12,000 because the debt you have results in a net gain of only $6,000. Nobody talks like that, and the truth is that CNN lied on President Obama, twice!
The President should thank the new Romney for the highest form of flattery, imitating him. What a compliment is contained in Romney abandoning his 59 Point Plan to adopt Obama's 5 Point Plan. The President might want to say, in the matter of energy independence, that he's already doubled the amount of renewable energy we generate, and he's on record as intending to gain control over more of our energy, while Romney has only said that he "wants to take advantage of our energy resources." What does Romney means by that? How does he intends to implement it? How will it contribute to energy independence . . . Questions like these should expose Romney's superficial grasp of various concepts since, he can steal words, but he can't steal know how.
