Going into the debate on Wednesday, the common wisdom among the anointed press was that Obama was going to smash Romney with his message. Interestingly enough, the reverse happened. Mitt Romney absolutely crushed Obama in the first debate, and the press is reeling. Not only is the press feeling light headed, the administration is feeling ill as well.
Every reaction following the debate fits a pattern that smacks of desperation and fear. Lets break it down. The press is throwing everything up against the wall to see what sticks. Unfortunately, what they’re tossing is some of the most ridiculous rhetoric that I have ever heard.
1. It has been said that Obama couldn’t be aggressive because he would be perceived as “an angry black man”.
2. It has been said that perhaps the altitude in Colorado was the cause of Obama’s abysmal performance. That gem was proposed by Al Gore.
3. It has been said that Romney cheated by bringing notes on stage. It is clear in the video that these supposed “notes” are nothing more than a handkerchief.
4. It has been said that Romney simply lied his way to victory. But if so, why didn’t Obama call him out on any of them in any significant way? Because Romney has the facts on his side.
These are just several of the many excuses that are being made by the Liberal press in the wake of Obama’s dismal debate performance. These ridiculous excuses for the debate are simply the most obvious indicator in recent history that the press has become irreversibly corrupted.
Besides several of the conservative media outlets, these excuses are not being treated as if they are absolutely insane, which is exactly what they are. If Romney had lost the debate in such a way as Obama did, and conservative media outlets made accusations that were as outrageous as these, they would be mercilessly skewered.
Our press has become so insular, so within itself that it has become a mockery. The press has become a cabal that has no other reason for existence besides propping up whatever democrat is in the running.
The democrats (partially using the press) will cheat to win this election. They will block voter I.D. Laws so that non-legal residents can vote, they will register dead people, as they have done in the past, and they will disseminate false information to change the outcome of this election to favor their leader. The only way that Romney can win this is if he remains aggressive, specific and passionate. Romney has the facts on his side, Obama does not.
On CNN, the day after the debate, Erin Burnett got Stephanie Cutter to admit that Obama’s $5 trillion dollar tax break accusation, which he repeated endlessly during the debate, was false. Yet the Obama campaign continues to use the $5 trillion lie. That’s just one example of many. Romney can dissect Obama’s policies with a scalpel, and the democrats will continue to repeat the same old lies.
So, here’s the solution. Romney must continue to keep Obama on the defense, he must be methodical and exacting in his dissection of Obama’s failed policies, and he must be able to counter every one of Obama’s lies in a specific and aggressive manner. If Romney does these things, which he has already started to do, he will win this election by enough of a margin that any foul play by the democrats will be rendered moot.
