FINAL 2012 PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE at Lynn University in Florida – Live Blog

Final 2012 Presidential Debate at Lynn University in Florida–

The pressure is on Barack Obama who failed to show up at the first debate and is trailing in the polls.

Guess who’s sitting with Michelle Obama tonight?

Yup. That’s former Florida Republican governor Charlie Crist. Gag.

First question is on Benghazi massacre–
Bob Schieffer asks Romney the first question…
Mitt Romney- We’ve seen in nation after nation a series of disturbing events. “Al-Qaeda is certainly not on the run.”

Obama- With respect to Libya we made sure we secured those Americans in harms way. (That’s why it took them 7 hours to reach the embassy.)

Barack Obama: The Cold War has been over for 30 years. “Every time you’ve had an opinion you’ve been wrong.”

Mitt Romney: Attacking me is not an answer.

Barack Obama: Here’s what I’ve learned since being the Commander in Chief – You gotta be clear (Benghazi anyone?)

Brad Thor added: The only thing clear about #Obama foreign policy is that he treats our friends like enemies and our enemies like friends.

Barack: I am confident Assad’s days are numbered.

Mitt Romney makes Obama look weak and small.

Obama says our alliance with Israel is stronger than ever… Really?

Obama reformed education – really?
Under Gov. Romney, 4th & 8th grade students in Massachusetts scored highest in the nation in English & math tests.

Obama talks down to Mitt Romney – “We got ships that go underwater called submarines.”
They’re called boats, Barack. Submarines are called boats.

Obama says Israel is our greatest ally in the region. Last month he said it was “one” of our greatest allies in the region.

Barack Obama: We would welcome Iran in the community of nations if they gave up nukes.

Mitt: Part of the problem with Iran is they have seen weakness where they were expecting to see strength.

Barack Obama lies about his non-support for Iranian Green Revolution. Tell that to Neda.

Pah-kistan… Drink!
Toillybon… Drink!

Obama is veering off into the ditch tonight. What the hell is he talking about?

Obama: We’ve created partnerships throughout the region – Somalia, Pah-kistan… Taliban?

Mitt Romney: On day one, I will call China a currency manipulator. It will allow us to put tariffs on goods where they’re stealing jobs.

Mitt is not scared of Barack Obama one-bit-whatsoever #TakeThatSmackBacktoChicago

Mitt closed the deal tonight. He held back and battered Obama on his failed economic policies in his closing statements. It’s over. Say goodnight, Barack.

    Undeclared war in Libya. You gave an oil rich country to the muslim

    Brotherhood! Thoughtless terd.

  • donh

    Question is Syria and Obama wants to drag the issue back to Libya

  • Hopeful

    Romney doesn’t have to beat Obambi over the head. All he has to do is hold his own, make sense, act competent, and not like a war monger. He’s doing it.

    O was getting flustered as Romney talked. I hope he will make a big mistake. But even if he doesn’t, I still think Romney is doing ok, and that’s all he needs to do.

    O’s attacks about R changing his mind etc etc aren’t new, and people have already rejected that, shown in the polls.

    Have faith, people. You can’t do what Romney has done without a lot of smarts, hard work, self-control, and being quick on your feet. He’s doing great!

    This is just so bad – BHO sounds so convincing even as he’s lying through his teeth! AND he gave the order to take out Ghaddafi without congressional approval. We didn’t even belong over there!

    Breaking The War Mentality
    by Barack Obama
    March 10, 1983

    [In 1933 the German establishment thought it could use Hitler to restore a modicum of order to the confused and confusing Weimar Republic. In fact, Hitler did strengthen the German establishment, but not exactly in the way the bankers and businessmen had wanted; and now, fifty years later, it is clear who was using whom. Nevertheless, the Western World did not complain in 1933 because Hitler, though a fascist and a totalitarian, was seen, like countless American puppet dictators today, as someone who leaves the established order in place.]

    Obama-Run General Motors To Start Outsourcing Car Manufacturing

    [The U.S. government is pouring billions into General Motors in hopes
    of reviving the domestic economy, but when the automaker completes
    its restructuring plan, many of the company’s new jobs will be filled by
    workers overseas.

    According to an outline the company has been sharing privately with
    Washington legislators, the number of cars that GM sells in the United
    States and builds in Mexico, China and South Korea will roughly double.

    The proportion of GM cars sold domestically and manufactured in those
    low-wage countries will rise from 15 percent to 23 percent over the next
    five years, according to the figures contained in a 12-page presentation
    offered to lawmakers in response to their questions about overseas
    production.

    As a result, the long-simmering argument over U.S. manufacturers
    expanding production overseas — normally arising between unions
    and private companies — is about to engage the Obama administration.]

    Obama cuts deal with Iran over nukes

    [The agreement calls for Iran to announce a temporary halt to partial uranium enrichment after which the U.S. will remove many of its sanctions, including those on the Iranian central bank, no later than by the Iranian New Year in March. Iran is in the throes of massive inflation and citizen unrest because of the sanctions.]

    Tunisians See Washington as Too Cozy with Islamists

    [“People here are against the United States helping Ennahda,” a
    journalist told Totten. “All Americans who come here are against
    the Islamists, but the American government is supporting them. I
    wish we had a good, modern, respectful Islamic party. I’m a Muslim
    and I’m proud of it, but I’m not proud of this party.”

    The government is seen as far too cozy with radical Salafists,
    looking the other way as the radicals stake a claim to the new
    society. Ennahda members joined the Salafists in a recent rally
    calling for Sharia law in Tunisia.]

    Hillary tied to new Muslim Brotherhood president

    [Saleha Mahmood Abedin, the mother of Hillary Clinton’s chief
    of staff, reportedly served in the women’s division of the Muslim
    Brotherhood alongside the wife of Egypt’s new president, the
    Brotherhood’s Mohammed Mursi.]

    Jasser, Lopez, Fatah

    [Islamist-allied operatives appointed by Obama are undermining U.S. security policy – explains counter-Intelligence expert, Prof. Clare Lopez. Aimed at co-opting Americas foreign policy in the Middle East, a network including well-known American diplomats, congressional representatives, figures from academia and the think tank world – with ties to the clerical regime in Tehran – is directing the Obama Administration’s policy towards the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Middle East.]

    [Today, in the White House, there are three members of the Muslim Brotherhood that influence Obama’s policy. One is Rashad Hassan of Indian origin, who is the American ambassador to the 52-nation organization of Islamic countries. Dahlia Mujahid who writes his speech, who comes from the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. Just day before yesterday, another woman, an academic, was appointed in that circle. This is happening while we sit silent, and I say that as a liberal democrat, as someone who worked and campaigned for Barrack Obama.]

  • Lone Ranger

    As someone who despises Obama, and wants to see him GONE – I give the debate to Obama 53 to 47. Romney tried to cover too much ground, with lots of small ideas, and small points. What he needed to do was pick just a few big ideas, and lay them out. His “shotgun” approach of throwing out lots and lots of uncoordinated items failed to project a coherent theme. I wish it was otherwise.

    It wasn’t a terrible beating, but Obama came off sounding more as if the various parts of his position fit together.

    Hopefully, Romney will continue to build momentum, despite this rather mediocre showing.

    I think his strategy tonight was “I’ve got this thing won, you have to take it from me”

    Obama had nothing new or effective, so Romney’s strategy worked.

  • http://www.thecafeallegro.com/randomthoughts RandomThoughts

    Romney did what he needed to do, stood firm, made clear points, and stuck to the issues without being nasty or belligerent. He looked and sounded presidential. In some way he actually reminded me a bit of Reagan (and I’m rather surprised by that, actually).

    You know it’s bad for Obama when one of his cheerleaders in the media tweets this.

    Mark Halperin [email protected] Boca Raton debate grades: Obama B+, Romney B+. Full report cards coming soon.

    Obama needed a knock out punch, and it sounds like he didn’t achieve one.

    November 6th can’t come soon enough.

    You mean, it wasn’t Obama and Biden that killed Osama bin Laden?

    355-Yes.

    Romney won this last debate. He sounded Presidential; was confident and likable; and had a plan.

    Romney overshadowed Obama, who suffered miserably in comparison.

    I gladly vote for Romney-Ryan, because 4 more years of an America-hating incompetent simply cannot be. We can do better and we will.

    Obama-Ryan 21012!

    Charles Krauthammer on FOX News gave the debate to Romney. Said that Romney was Big and Obama was amazingly small.

    The ties said a lot. Obama’s solid, shiny blue. Mitt’s blue and red stripes. Just shows Mitt willing to work across the aisle.

    Romney sounded like somebody who has been following all of these issues for years. Obama sounded like he had been prepped with talking points.

    I’d call it a clear win for Romney, because his performance would be reassuring for anybody considering NOT voting for Obama, or staying home. Those were the only classes of votes left on the table.

    I thought Obama did well enough to keep those people who were already going to vote for him, and who had no idea how many lies he told.

    why isn’t Invasion across our Southern border a National Security issue?

  • Militant Conservative

    Well has the MSM trotted out and said Obama won?

  • Monkey Wrench

    All the snap polls tonight say that Obama won the debate. It’s impossible to win a debate on foreign policy with the President of the United States.

    I doubt it will make a difference in the outcome of the election, because people are more concerned about the economy.

    I’m so damn glad that these so-called “debates” are over I don’t know what to do!!

    There wasn’t any need for it to begin with because we all knew they would be nothing but a lie fest for Obama anyway, just like he continued to do tonight. And as far as “foreign policy” is concerned, Obama didn’t have a foreign policy coming into office. He had never had anything to do with foreign governments in his life. And besides he only knows of one thing to do with Muslims anyway and that is to let Muslims do what Muslims want to do, and that’s what he’s done. He’s a Muslim. His life’s background is Islamic. His religious training has been in the Muslim faith. He doesn’t know of anything other than Islam. He’s not a Christian because he lacks any and all upbringing in Christianity. His mother was a Socialist and an atheist. His fathers, both of them were Muslim. His family on his mothers side were all atheist Communists. His family on his fathers side were all Muslims. What does he have to go on other than Islamic, Communist, Socialist, Black. So he doesn’t have any place for learning foreign policy because anything he would be taught would be against anything he’s learned all his life.

    Romney on the other hand has far more foreign policy since he worked for years with foreign dignitaries putting the Olympics back together. So Romney has far more experience working with foreigners than Obama. Obama has no foreign policy other than the one Axlerod gave him.

    Poor Obama had to “rent a family” after the debate. Did anyone notice how he and Moochelle interjected themselves in the Romney family so as not to appear pathetic? Wonder why Obama didn’t at least invite his brother over…

    The man has no family, no past.

    The media will never say Obama lost all the debates,which he did.

    Don’t forget Juan Williams said Obama won the first debate.

    I usually start watching Fox around 9, roll it back to 8:00, fast forward through all of the silly stuff on O’Reilly and any liberal who annoys me (including JW), and get to Hannity by 9:20 or so.
    It works wonders for the blood pressure.

    Final thoughts on the debate.

    a. Romney missed a golden opportunity with Iran because he didnt bring up dirty bombs.

    b. Romney did what he needed to do and that is prove that he had a good grasp of foreign affairs. He knew the places, the names, and the way the the pieces fit together.

    c. Romney stated what he wanted to do in the next 4 years. Obama didnt.

    d. Obama looked like he was nodding to someone in the audience numerous times. His talking points on teachers didnt fit the conversation.

    e. I switched to MSNBC after the debate. Just in time for matthews to say the right didnt want Obama in the WH because he is black. Had to change the channel. Couldnt take anymore.

    @#383… Lol. I do the same. Gotta luv DVR. Last night’s debate: Imo, I wish Romney had been a lot more forceful in many areas but apparently that was not Romney’s strategy and it worked well. Those of us who know what is going on with Team Obama get very emotional and want to take a baseball bat to the man, but in the light of this new day, I don’t think that would have been the right approach. The next morning we would not be happy with the results of that bashing. Romney played it right. He looked presidential (peace through strength) and he reminded us all that this is about a failed economy here at home. Now we just need OHIO!!!

  • Militant Conservative

    Now the MSM is in cleanup mode to cover all the lies Obama spouted.

    Counting the days till his ass is handed to him and the MSM says it was fraud.

    Like What Karl Rove had to say this morning. Ohio lost 18 electorial votes

    during the last realignment. Florida has those now and Obama is losing

    Florida. Rove said we are looking at a landslide. Gee, who has been saying this

    for over a year? ME, Obama made a Jimmy Carter mistake, he made the pain real

    to a plurality of voters and it is plain to see who caused this. Even to you room

    temperature I.Q. democrats. Obama owns this failure.
