Er, No, Obama Didn’t Win the Debate

Obama insisted to Romney that he had called the Benghazi attack terrorism on day one, when in fact, he had not.

The constituency for the real Obama is a minority in America, no bigger than the minority that votes for Democrats in every election cycle, and perhaps not that big.  Much of Obama’s 2008 support has peeled away, precisely because there’s no consistency between his actions, his rhetoric, and blunt reality.  Romney came off last night as he did in the first debate:  as someone with experience who does operate on the basis of reality.  For my part, I think the world in which Obama’s oratorical flourishes carried the day exists only inside the heads of MSM pundits.  Reality is giving the rest of us a big-time check.

    Its good to see the author of this article telling the truth; this is especially noteworthy when so many are lying about Barack Obama!

  2. Mark L. Shane says:

    the truths we have here will come out in one of those just released ( 50 years from now) docu movies about obama's foreign birth, forged USA birth certif. , anti christian-pro muslim- anti Israel stances and all the other media cleansed truths will spin out and democrats will say:I was never so sure about him.

  3. Aaron Alter says:

    I don't suppose its worth noting that Romney consistently interrupted the President? Say what you will, but saying that Romney was "Presidential" is just a fallacy. I don't care if you hate the President with all your soul, but guess what? He's still the President. If you don't respect the man, respect the office. Furthermore, as a Dem, I will be the first to admit that the Obama campaign has had its share of untruths. However, to write in a manner that implies that Obama was the only one to do so is short sighted. People love to talk about the "liberal media" and how we spin the truth. I mean, if colleges and other non-partisan institutions run a fact check, and find the untruths in Romeny's doctrine, its a plot against him. If they expose something about Obama? GOOD! I'll just close by saying that Mr. Dyer, as someone who has served this country, I respect your opinion, but I still will express my discourse. Mark, enough with the Obama conspiracies. I know you think that you're standing up for the truth, but I hate to tell you, your the one telling lies. Unless you mean to incite that there was a conspiracy surrounding Obama from the time he was conceived, then all of what you said is, quite simply, bull. You only belittle your own thoughts and intelligence when you follow that dogma.
