    ...But there is another possible explanation for President Obama’s weak debate performance. Perhaps Obama isn’t the remarkable intellect his supporters believe him to be. He’s written two autobiographical books, and he clearly has a gift for delivering prepared speeches. But does he really know anything beyond what his staff prepares? His college and law school grades are under seal, and the media always showed less interest in them than in Romney’s tax returns. He never ran a business, so its success could not be used as an index of his abilities. He got a law degree but never distinguished himself as a lawyer, wrote a winning brief or made a brilliant oral argument in an appeal. He was a U.S. senator for four years and an Illinois state senator for eight, but — to say the least — he did not distinguish himself by proposing significant legislation in either chamber.

    Further, he was not qualified to be president (quite obvious now to many, including those of us who said so in 2008). He had NO foreign policy experience, yet now all of a sudden, that is supposed to be a benchmark for Romney-Ryan. His books were ghost written, according to some. He is worthless without a teleprompter. His policies are an utter disaster, whether domestic or foreign. His administration is corrupt to the core, including the AG Eric Holder, who we now find out was a jailbird in his youth, thousands have died at the hands of Eric Holder's Fast and Furious. Furthermore, obama is the liar - from everything to promising to fix the economy to the coverup at Benghazi. He is only "fast on his feet" when reading from a scripted teleprompter. To show his actual mentality, he is now focusing on Big Bird rather than jobs. Clint Eastwood was right - obama is an empty chair and I would add, an empty suit. Fool us once, shame on you. Fool us twice, shame on us. Yet, his appeal to a certain segment of voters is the Big Bird mentality and "free phones" and EBT cards that can be cashed for cash.

    Guess what? The oceans have not receded and the planet has not been healed as he promised, either! Who knew? :laugh:

    Obama's need to be deliberate and hyper-prepared and Romney's ability to think on his feet is the main reason I see Romney winning the next two debates. Romney's quick thinking ability has been cultivated in the pressure packed arena of negotiating big-buck deals as well as government service. Obama has no corollary, except for a few years in the Senate. Obama doesn't even call many meetings with Congressional leaders. In short, he hasn't had much practice with spontaneous debate, whereas Romney has loads of it.

    Furthermore, Romney's rapid fire delivery along with a structured, easy to follow response contrasts nicely with Obama's slow, plodding, rambling responses that devolve into wonky minutiae.

    Romney will appear prepared, able, and enthusiastic. Obama will appear slow, outmatched, and condescending. In Presidential debates these are huge factors.

    Sometimes you can judge a book by it's cover...

    As in the above case.

    If he wasn't "black" he never would have been president.

    That is just the facts.

    Is Obama over-rated?

    The answer would depend who is asked: a disappointed liberal democrat, a disillusioned nonpartisan voter, a conservative, a socialist, an antagonistic Islamic, etc.

    A better question would be, Has he been effective? But the answer would still vary.

    Oh, he's been effective alright. He said he wanted to fundamentally change America and he has.

    If I were a socialist, an antagonistic foreign muslim, a moocher, or an illegal alien I'd say absolutely.

    Note that I did not say he was effective in a positive way, only that he has been effective. Not one of us can doubt that he has had an impact on this nation and the world. Again, I am not saying its good, only that it has happened.

    :thumbsup: I understand, and the antagonistic foreign muslim, the moocher, and the illegal alien probably don't have America's interests in high esteem.

    Lets just suppose this----in relation to any typical Saturday afternoon college football game

    Team A(Romney)-----gets the upper hand and had put points on the board----Team A Offense & Defense are hot!!

    Its halftime

    Team B(Obama)---goes into the locker room and knows he must make offensive and defensive adjustments in order to even stay in the game during the 3rd and 4th Quarters coming

    My question is

    Second Quarter comes----Whats Team A's 2nd half plan

    and what is Team B's 2nd half plan

    Obama being black along with being groomed by a cabal of elite marxist Chicago Jews proved to be the winning combination for the socialists in obtaining the executive branch of government.

    Ideology is different than ethnicity. If I am wrong, please educate me.

    To discuss Marxism/Socialism/liberal politics with no mention of Jewish involvement is tantamount to a discussion on gunpowder with no mention of the Chinese, or thoroughbred horse racing with no mention of Kentucky.

    To discuss Obama's politics with no mention of the Marxist Chicago Jews that claim him as their own is the same as no mention of the Sicilian in a discussion of Cosa Nostra.
