    In Light of the Final Debate on Foreign Affairs, is Mitt Romney Smarter Than a 5th Grader?

    The final debate between Mitt Romney and President Obama was a technocratic affair in which the challenger borrowed the incumbent’s positions in order to prevent a knockout defeat. I follow politics both because of professional and personal commitments; I cannot imagine an independent or low information voter being able to remain engaged in Monday night’s debate for any sustained amount of time.

    Obama clearly defeated Mitt Romney following a devastating flurry of blows to the head and body–this was the equivalent of a grown ass man beating up an impudent child–alas, it will not matter in terms of the final vote.

    Few issues of legitimate disagreement or substance were discussed in Monday’s debate. As Chris Matthews smartly pointed out, there was no mention of how multi-polar our world had become, or how Europe’s economic crisis has impacted America’s economy. Those are epic fails on the part of the moderator.

  3. Nothing Is Foreign to the Liar Willard Romney Anymore: A Report from the Flippy-Floppy Final Debate of 2012

    BOCA RATON, Fla. — It was early in the proceedings here on Monday night when I was struck with a horrible vision. It may have been right about that moment in the final presidential debate when Willard Romney — who, for most of the past two years, has been the most bellicose Mormon since they disbanded the Nauvoo Legion — looked deeply into the camera’s eye and, inches from actual sincerity, said, “We can’t kill our way out of this mess.” Or, perhaps, it was when, in a discussion of his newfound dedication to comprehensive solutions to complex problems, he announced his devotion to “a peaceful planet,” or when he cited a group of Arab scholars in support of loosening the grip of theocratic tyranny in the Middle East.


    There is no nation in its right mind that would put its foreign policy in the hands of the Willard Romney who showed up on stage here in Boca Raton on Monday night, particularly since he had so clearly abandoned everything else he believed on the subject for the purpose of fronting himself as a moderate in order to run out the clock over the next three weeks.

  5. Obama takes Romney to school. My latest column from the final presidential debate:

  6. NYT editorial: Romney sounded “completely lost” has no “real ideas” on foreign policy

    Joy Ann Reid rocks..

    that is all.

    I hope someone can find the video post debate on MSNBC where Rachel Maddow goes into great detail about why it’s offensive, not that WILLARD changed his positions on Afghanistan and so many other things tonight, but that he denies that he had held those previous positions. Maddow’s rant was righteous and just so on point at the heart of it is Willard’s lack of character.

    Really was hoping Obama dougied off stage to ‘This Is Why I’m Hot’

  11. Obama has a word with Tagg Romney post-debate

    Ametia, SG2

    I don’t even know if they will actually put it as a video segment, but dammit, I wish someone would.

    Rachel Maddow right after the debate…

    here’s how someone at BJ described it.

    Maddow’s righteous indignation (almost to tears) about the Afghanistan backtrack was a thing of fucking beauty. This fits the Romnesia narrative perfectly

    Wow. “78% of CNN Poll watchers think that Obama won. This is devastating for Romney”

  18. In Foreign Policy Debate, Obama Uses Romney’s Past Positions Against Him

    Throughout Monday night’s presidential debate on foreign policy, President Obama used past positions that Mitt Romney has taken over the course of the campaign to depict him as the wrong candidate to run U.S. foreign policy.

    Obama used the tactic both to defend his own initiatives — particularly his Libya policy — and to characterize Romney as an untrained foreign policy hand who has been wobbly and inconsistent.

    “I know you haven’t been in a position to execute foreign policy,” Obama said, in summarizing his theme of attack, “but every time you have offered an opinion, you have been wrong.”
