A Prediction: Obama will come out very aggressive, even mean, in the next presidential debate (October 16th). He will act like a pit bull...and will leave Romney with yet another victory -- in both style and substance -- while doing continued harm to his strongest point, that he's considered cool and hip and likeable. He was none of those things last night. I predict that he will over-react in his efforts to undo Wednesday's damage and thus compound the damage.
Mitt's massacre -- It was hard to tell Wednesday night if it was President Obama on stage or Clint Eastwood's empty chair. TheDC's Alexis Levinson reports from Denver on Mitt Romney's Wednesday night triumph: "Mitt Romney came out the winner of the first presidential debate with President Barack Obama, a fact even Obama surrogates were unable to fully spin ... Romney was aggressive; he made his arguments cleanly and without hesitation. He repeatedly asserted himself, even interrupting moderator Jim Lehrer, to ensure that he responded to the president’s remarks. Obama, by contrast, seemed hesitant and almost tentative. Where Romney launched straight in to his answers, the president stuttered, and rambled at the start of his answers, as though struggling to figure out what point he ought to make. Romney regularly directed his comments against the President, Obama several times turned to the American people, asking, 'Does anybody out there think...?'"
At times, you expected him to ask and answer, "Does anybody out there think I'm winning this debate? Let me be clear: I'm not."
"You and I are told we must choose between a left or right, but I suggest there is no such thing as a left or right. There is only an up or down. Up to man's age-old dream -- the maximum of individual freedom consistent with order -- or down to the ant heap of totalitarianism. Regardless of their sincerity, their humanitarian motives, those who would sacrifice freedom for security have embarked on this downward path. Plutarch warned,
'The real destroyer of the liberties of the people is he who spreads among them bounties, donations and benefits.'" -- Ronald Reagan

1) The Obama administration has presided over 43 months of unemployment over 8 percent. In the prior 61 years there were a total of 38 months of unemployment over 8 percent.
2) The average unemployment rate during the Obama administration has been 9.1 percent. There has never been any other administration, indeed no other four year period, during which unemployment averaged 9 percent or higher.
The White House has no comment on assertions that the U.S. Consulate in Libya had requested additional security—and been denied—before the recent terrorist attack AND The House Oversight Committee has listed security threats and attacks in Libya that occurred during the six months leading up to the September 11 attack. [Is it really possible that this deliberate deception of the American people by Obama and his minions is actually going to go largely ignored by the American populace?-JS]
"The Big Lie of the late 20th century was that Nazism was Rightist. It was in fact typical of the Leftism of its day. It was only to the Right of Stalin's Communism. The very word 'Nazi' is a German abbreviation for 'National Socialist' (Nationalsozialist) and the full name of Hitler's political party (translated) was 'The National Socialist German Workers' Party' (In German: Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei)." -- Dr. John Joseph Ray
