    How Obama Won the Upcoming Debate

    10/2/12
    By Timothy C. Daughtry


    For seasoned political observers on both sides of the aisle, it is not particularly surprising that the media's narrative for Wednesday's presidential debate has already been written. If Obama were to show up in a clown suit and flip-flops, the media narrative would be that his unconventional attire was a daring and brilliant move designed to challenge the status quo and to reveal his human side, or possibly a laudable effort to make politics more interesting to children. Romney, of course, would be cast as the dull guy who dressed like an accountant and who failed to reach the audience with his talk of budgets and debt and restoring the private sector.

    Wardrobe choices aside, by Thursday morning, as long as Obama shows up for the debate, the narrative will be that Obama has closed the deal with the electorate. After that narrative is repeated enough, it stands a good chance of becoming reality.

    So the superficial answer to how Obama won the upcoming debate is that liberals control the news media that shape the thinking of voters in the middle, the ones who do not define themselves as liberal or conservative and who supposedly are still making up their minds. The deeper -- and more significant -- answer is that conservatives do not understand political strategy, and the left does.

    ---


    Perhaps the fundamental reason, then, for America's precarious state is that conservatives, by nature, mind our own business. We have been too busy taking care of our families and our businesses and running our own lives to devote much time to meddling in what the next generation of voters will be taught, or in changing the direction of the news media. Obama, on the other hand, won the upcoming debate because earlier generations of liberals made it their business to make sure that, one day, leftists like him could not lose.

    People will get the President they deserve, but I'm not yet convinced it will be Obama.

    Ha! Pre-soured grapes!

    If Romney loses, it will be because Romney and the GOP are such incompetents they can't even beat a piece of shit like Obama by a country mile.

    Media bias has always been there. It was there for Kerry, but even a dumbfuck like Dubya was able to beat him.

    It was there for Carter, and yet Reagan kicked his ass anyway. It was there for Mondale, and Reagan kicked HIS ass the hardest anyone's ass has been kicked in history.

    Now, if a dumbfuck like Dubya can beat Kerry, then you know Romney and the GOP have fallen awfully damned far if they can't even beat a collosal loser like Obama!

    Don't be blaming others for Romney and the GOP's failings.

    Sorry, but that just doesn't cut it.

    But Obama is still gonna lose.

    If you get your ass kicked in a fight, it isn't because the sportscaster liked the other guy more.

    They do? Since when?

    If they’re not busy trying to get government in our bedrooms concerning contraception and abortion then they’re interfering with same-sex couples who wish to marry, or low income voters trying to vote, or forcing public assistance applicants to take drug tests, or attempting to expand the ‘Christian Nation,’ or telling women when they have, and when they have not, been raped.

    If conservatives would indeed mind their own business, and stay out of everyone else’s, this country would truly be better off.
