Update: There are football games on tonight. There is a big debate on tonight. We recommend as our entertainment pick the Spanish language program on Telemundo a show called Caso Cerrado. Watch it on reruns tonight if possible.
Caso Cerrado is a “Judge Judy” “People’s Court” type show. Tonight’s show featured a young woman with a ring around her lip and a big Obama T-shirt on. She is filing for divorce from her husband because he supports Romney. The audience and woman “judge” look upon her as a nut. This mocking attitude increases as we learn that she insists her husband abandon his viewpoint and adopt hers without exception. She is three months pregnant and says she will abort if Romney is elected. We have no doubt she is considered part of the DailyKooks “creative class”.
We’ll be watching and commenting on the debate tonight. We want to see if JBStonesFan is indeed a Romney good luck charm.
We are not the only ones watching and commenting. Powerline is on the job with a live blog of the debate. The Professor is also on the job and predicting an attack on Mitt Romney by the guy from Chicago. HotAir has an open thread: The third debate as well.
Hang on to your Mittins. The gloves come off tonight at 9:00 (ET).
Mitt Romney has a problem tonight: too many issues to beat Obama up with. Romney has to decide which way to attack and the consequences of each. In 2008 Obama attacked Hillary Clinton as a warmonger because Hillary made it plain that a nuclear attack by Iran against Israel risked the obliteration of Iran by the United States:
“I want the Iranians to know that if I’m the president, we will attack Iran (if it attacks Israel),” Clinton said in an interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
“In the next 10 years, during which they might foolishly consider launching an attack on Israel, we would be able to totally obliterate them,” she said.
“That’s a terrible thing to say but those people who run Iran need to understand that because that perhaps will deter them from doing something that would be reckless, foolish and tragic,” Clinton said.”
Obama wants to tar Mitt Romney as a warmonger. That is the tactic Obama thinks will get women back to voting for him after so many women have fled.
Obama is right only about one thing in this “warmonger” smear: tonight’s debate is only about getting votes. Getting votes. Getting votes. Getting votes.
On many issues it will be tough for Romney to gain traction because Big Media has kept necessary information from the American voter. In addition there are so many lies coming from the Obama camp that it is near impossible to untangle the issues in the few minutes Romney will have tonight.
Consider: is there or is there not a post election meeting with Iran when Obama will be more flexible? How many lies have been uttered by Obama on Benhazi and will the Big Media moderator come to the rescue of Obama again?
That is not to say that Romney is paralyzed in discussing these issues. Quite the contrary, but Romney has to remember it’s about getting votes from American voters not a way to resolve international policy or untangle Obama lies. It’s about the voters and getting votes:
“Romney tonight can hit on a host of issues that are important to Jewish voters – not to mention the many conservatives who are diehard Israel supporters. These include Obama’s failure to reign in the Iranian nuclear program, his tilt toward the Palestinians, his awful relationship with Netanyahu, and even the rise of an Islamist regime in Egypt under his watch and his failure to back rebels against Israel’s nemesis, Bashar Assad.”
“Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney at the Monday foreign policy debate should play to the Jewish TV audience like he was the star of a Borscht Belt revue.“
Obama campaign affiliate Big Media will misrepresent or lie to protect Obama and injure Romney (see Politico’s latest nonsense). By now Romney knows this.
We are confident that Romney will expose Obama’s snubs of Netanyahu and outright insults when he thinks the microphones are off. Romney can make it clear that in human relations insulting peers is not a winning proposition. This line of argument will be harder for Obama to spin as evidence to smear
Hillary Romney as a “warmonger”.
Romney can also note the anti-women policies of the Islamist states which now, because of Obama boobery and treachery, includes Egypt. Romney should declare that Bin Laden is dead because Navy Seals killed him but that his organization of murderous terrorists in growing and well fed on American blood thanks to Obama.
Romney can also note that Obama’s war on oil, war on coal, war on natural gas domestically makes the United States bow to the oil rich tyrants. That is also how Romney introduces the Obama apology tour and the Obama bows to despotic potentates.
Romney should address foreign policy in conjunction with domestic policy. This little noted story is something for Romney to discuss:
“PITTSBURGH (AP) — There’s been plenty of debate over the Marcellus Shale natural gas field, but new research adds a twist that could impact political and environmental battles. Two independent financial firms say the Marcellus isn’t just the biggest natural gas field in the country — it’s the cheapest place for energy companies to drill.
One of the reports adds that the Marcellus reserves that lie below parts of Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Ohio and New York are far larger than recent government estimates, while another said the powerful combination of resource, cost and location is altering natural gas prices and market trends across the nation.
The Marcellus could contain “almost half of the current proven natural gas reserves in the U.S,” a report from Standard & Poor’s issued this week said.”
Will tonight’s debate matter? You betcha. Romney has already leaped over the “presidential” test. Now he can put Obama away, if Bob does not do a Candy.
While Obama bowed to the corrupt Romney can promise to make America a strong economy again. It’s the economy stupid – even when it’s about foreign policy.
