The Left is Spinning Like a Top

Yes, the "debate" was really a competition to see who will be the bigger statist. And the consensus seems to be that Romney "won".

Oh joy!

The real winner, of course, was The State. No matter what, its growth appears to be assured.

The only consolation that I can find for us libertarians is in the entertainment provided by the left, who are reeling as a result of this "defeat".

Here are some choice quotes that I found amusing:

Al Gore
"Obama arrived in Denver at 2 PM today — Just a few hours before the debate started."... "Romney did his debate prep in Denver. When you go to 5,000 feet and you only have a few hours to adjust -- I don't know." [Source]
Michael Moore
"This is what happens when u pick John Kerry as your debate coach." [Source]
Rachel Maddow
"I do feel that we saw this debate format die a painful death on camera tonight...the debate format was just dismantled. Um...the format, and I think the moderator, honestly, with all due respect for Mr. Lehrer, was just absolutely dismantled." [Source]
Chris Matthews
"Here's my question for Obama: I know he likes saying he doesn't watch cable television but maybe he should start. Maybe he should start. I don't know how he let Romney get away with the crap he throughout tonight about Social Security."...

"Where was Obama tonight? He should watch -- well, not just Hardball, Rachel, he should watch you, he should watch the Reverend Al [Sharpton], he should watch Lawrence. He would learn something about this debate. There's a hot debate going on in this country. You know where it's been held? Here on this network is where we're having the debate." [Source]

Go ahead...take a minute to laugh before moving on to the fundamentals of Team Blue.

Markos Moulitsas
"It wasn't a great night, but not a catastrophic one. The fundamentals still favor our team, by a longshot, and Team Blue has three more debates to turn things around (two presidential and one vice-presidential)." [Source]
Robert Reich
"Romney sounded as if he had conviction, which means he’s either convinced himself that the lies he tells are true or he’s a fabulous actor." [Source]
David Axelrod
"I know this, he [Obama] will come, he will make an honest argument with the American people about how to rebuild the economy and the middle class and he'll hold Gov. Romney to account for these big gaps in the truth we saw last night." [Source]

Leftist outlets are also littered with "Fact Checks"..."Fact Checks"..."Fact Checks".

Here's a "Fact" for them:

The American public is not interested in facts.

If they were, Ron Paul would've been up there as one of the two candidates. As his warnings continue to become realities, and Americans really start to feel the economic pain, maybe then, they will perk up, and listen to the real "facts".

The "debate" was merely a performance between "Emperor A" and "Prospective Emperor B".


  1. Barry was suffering from altitude sickness?

  2. "The American public is not interested in facts. If they were, Ron Paul would've been up there as one of the two candidates."

    Actually, that isn't correct. If they were interested in facts, he would have won election in 1988 & gotten reelected in 1992. Thus, he wouldn't have been eligible to run in 2012.

    1. Actually you're wrong as well. Let's take this further, Ron Paul would not have ran if the Americans' choices in president didn't demand remedy!

  3. So according to Al Gore we should be very concerned should Obama negotiate any deals with any leaders in the capital cities of La Paz, Bolivia (11,942 ft); Quito, Ecuador (9,350 ft); Bogota, Columbia (8,612 ft); Mexico City, Mexico (7,350 ft) and Nairobi, Kenya (5,889 ft).

    1. "I don't know how he let Romney get away with the crap he throughout tonight about Social Security."...

      Is the former presidential speech writer Chris "The Thrill" Matthews an ignoramus or what? He used the word "throughout" in place of the phrase 'threw out'. That was embarrassing enough but what's even more ludicrous is his admonition to the Pres to learn from that unctuous, ridiculous, ignorant buffoon "Reverend" Al Sharpton. I hope Barry takes him up on that advice.

      A question for Chris Matthews fans - what's the emoticon for spittle flecked?

    2. Thank you for that comment sir, I now must repay my employer for one computer monitor that just shorted out from a liberal spraying of Mtn. Dew... that, is hilarious!

  4. This election is a like a scripted WWF match keep everyone tuned in. Oh no, Obama is leading in the polls, woes is us, right wing statists. Blam! Romney scores in the debate, rejoice! There is hope! And yet the October surprise is just around the corner (someone sneaks Obama a folded garden chair for the knockout).
