America deserves better than a ‘turtle on a fence post’

By From page A5 | October 08, 2012

EDITOR: Far away from his normal campaign comfort-zone of cheering crowds and people falling all over themselves, Obama had trouble selling any of his sunshine and snake-oil to the folks at last night’s Presidential debate.

Over 60 million people around the world watched as a Presidential debate instead unfolded into a professor-student lecture on economics, with Professor Mitt Romney taking yet another step toward becoming the next President of the these United States.

Romney showed up wide awake, armed with indisputable facts, figures and a whole load of common sense, making it was obvious to those on both sides of the aisle he was the one in complete control.

Without his much-needed teleprompter, the president’s only answer for Romney’s pure logic was to force a smile and stare at the floor as if desperately searching for MSNBC talking points scribbled on the auditorium carpet.

To make matters worse for Obama, in this rare instance his lap-dogs of the liberal media were unable to filter out any bad news and protect the president from himself, so what America got was an authentic glimpse of the “real Obama,” the proverbial “turtle on a fence post.”┬áLast night America began wondering just how Obama ever got up there, knows he’s not going to get anything done while he’s up there, and just feels the need to help him down.

Of course, the true litmus test to Romney’s success last night was when I quickly changed the channel after the debate over to the Obama-funded cable network MSNBC and saw a room full a idiots yelling “lies, nothing but lies.” Oh, he’s OK ,”Obama’s just using the rope a dope trick.”So freaked-out it seemed they might only be subdued with nets and tranquilizer darts.

Plus, while Al Gore was busy trying to blame Obama’s pitiful performance on Denver’s mile-high altitude I could swear I saw Chris Matthews cry. Another dead giveaway to Romney’s success is the re-emergence of all our liberal friends here in the Mountain D, with their freshly spun MSNBC talking points. Just last week they were all enjoying a huge sugar high over a minor convention bounce. Now they’re back hammering away at their keyboards, calling everyone on the right bigots.

In a letter I wrote to the editor three months ago, I predicted this overwhelming Romney victory in the first debate, at the same time I also predicted the next day liberals would begin playing the race card “like never before” but I was wrong. It didn’t even take until the next day; it took about an hour.

That’s unfortunate because, in a true, equal and colorblind America, we should all be able to tell the plain truth about a president (or anyone else) despite his/her color, and not have to think about being called a bigot…Black, White, Green, Brown, Purple, whatever, fact is, if Obama loses in November his fate will be sealed, and he will be seen as the worst president in modern history. Yes, worse than Carter or Bush combined, but not because he’s black, instead it’s simply because he was the worst president in modern history.

Anyway, I’m really looking forward to the lib’s next “turtle on a fence post” moment, which will come during the vice presidential debate, Thursday, Oct. 11, somewhere in Kentucky. My prediction for that debate is Joe Biden will again, say something extremely stupid. The only question is will he say it with a Harvard accent, a Southern accent, or just be wearing a lampshade on his head? Only time will tell.
