Presidential Foreign Policy Debate
The Mitts Come Off Tonight!
Monday, 8:00 p.m. CST
Tonight the Empty Chair will try to skate around questions posed by Mitt Romney or the moderator regarding the U.S. involvement in Libya, and whether the ineptness of his administration is at fault in the deaths of Ambassador Chris Stevens and 3 others. It is obvious to anyone paying attention to this fiasco that the Obama administration is involved in some kind of cover-up. What was really happening in Libya and why it occurred actually may be more sinister than just a foul-up by the State Department. The reported facts don’t match their political rhetoric. Day by day more information is reported that contradicts their official story. From the Libyan government, whistle-blowers, State Department staffers, reporters, intel sources, and from Ambassador Steven’s own cables, a different story is emerging than the one originating with the White House.
Obama boldly and unapologetically lied to the American people not just once, but multiple times about the Libyan attack. He, Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice, and Jay Carney blamed an unseen video for a spontaneous attack in Libya. Knowing the truth about the attacks, Obama shamefully continued the fictitious tale in his speech at the memorial service for our dead Americans, and then took the same story to the UN!
The administration went so far as to produce a video that was to be shown in the Middle East stating that the U.S. was not responsible for producing the repugnant film. Taxpayer money to the tune of $70,000 was spent on a video showcasing our two top government officials reiterating their video lie. In their minds, this video starring Hillary and Barack when broadcast in several Middle Eastern countries would help quell the violence erupting throughout the Middle East. As the Obama marketers were producing their still unseen advertisement, Islamic protests, uprisings and violence spread to over 25 countries within days. I’d venture to guess that the White House’s attempt to become stars in a movie made for Islamic terrorists was a complete flop. Did they really think they had “Star Power” in the Middle East?
To go hand in hand with their movie, our clueless government officials continued to tell the American people for 14 days the bogus tale about the video being the cause of the multi-country violent protests and attacks. The administration and their spokespeople even refused to define the attack as an Islamic terrorist attack.
Obama was put on the defensive in the last debate where he blatantly lied to Mitt and millions of viewers when he said he did call it a terrorist attack in his speech on September 12. He was backed up in his lie by the sycophantic moderator Candy Crowley as she leap from her chair holding the Obama’s speech in her hand to agree with his lie. It turned out that Mitt was correct in his assessment and Candy admitted as such, later. Unfortunately, most Americans didn’t see or hear Candy’s admission, but they did see her jump to Obama’s defense. The spin was created and the lie continued by the Left, although if one reads the transcript of Obama’s speech, it is plain to see that he did not acknowledge the attack in Libya as being done by Islamic terrorists. In fact within the last couple days, the leftist journOlists are trying to erase any mention of it being part of an Al Qaeda attack.
We were able to put two and two together rather quickly, and none of us are experts. We used some good old common sense and reached conclusions within hours of seeing the attacks on television. All we needed to see was that the calendar read September 11, 2012. To that context we added the U.S. Libyan Consulate was attacked, and four Americans were dead. Quickly and without much information, we knew a terrorist attack occurred. Yet, the White House couldn’t use the term terrorist attack to describe what we saw and heard on the news. For days they played musical words and continued to blame protests and the murdering of our ambassador and 3 others on an obscure film.
How obscure was it? According to one report that film was put on You Tube in July and seen only 17 times from the day it was uploaded to the day after the attack. Of those 17 people, we will even go so far as to assume that the people that had watched it were the original actors, and one or two people in the White House. We know someone in the administration had seen it because it became part of the administration’s talking points. More sinister is the question whether that obscure film was part of a plot that the administration was intentionally creating?
What should we expect? From Obama, I expect more of the same; lies and more damn lies, and those will be reported and tweeted by Obama’s supporters in news print and by the adulatory, apple-polishing, a@@-kissing, mainstream media. Obama will dance again and it will be interesting if Obama can really blame and use the term radical Islamic terrorists. More importantly, can he call those depraved jihadist Muslims by what they are … terrorists?
We have plenty of questions that need answering about Obama’s foreign policy concerning his administration’s secret contacts with CAIR, Iran, the Taliban, Libyan rebels, the Muslim Brotherhood and any other enemies of the United States. Additional questions would include finding out about his and government contacts with Mexico and Russia. How Obama sees the United States role in the world compared to Mitt’s should be extremely interesting. Obama’s weak and appeasing stance to our enemies and his disregard for our allies should be a focus point. Obama believes in weakening our military, whereas Mitt wants to ensure that our nation’s military strength is unsurpassed.
Bob Schieffer will be the moderator for this evenings bout between the two candidates. The Foreign Policy debate is the third and final 2012 presidential debate. Mr. Schieffer selected the foreign policy topics, and stated there may be additional topics due to news developments. These topics were published on Oct. 12, and much has occurred since then. I would hope that the events of the last two weeks are included in his questions tonight. The Commission on Presidential Debates published the topics chosen by the moderator. They include:
- America’s role in the world
- Our longest war – Afghanistan and Pakistan
- Red Lines – Israel and Iran
- The Changing Middle East and the New Face of Terrorism – I
- The Changing Middle East and the New Face of Terrorism – II
- The Rise of China and Tomorrow’s World
The debate is being held at Lynn University in Boca Raton, FL. The format calls for six 15-minute time segments, each of which will focus on one of the topics listed above. The moderator will open each segment with a question. Each candidate will have two minutes to respond. Following the candidates’ responses, the moderator will use the balance of the 15-minute segment to facilitate a discussion on the topic.
May the gloves come off tonight! We want to see Mitt clobber Obama with the full force of his skill, knowledge and experience. It should become evident that Mitt is a true patriot and Obama’s intentions aren’t in the best interest of our nation. Romney believes in the USA’s exceptionalism, while Obama does not. Romney believes in military strength to keep our enemies at bay while Obama wants to weaken and dismantle our military strength. Mitt will reestablish ties with our true allies, while Obama has pushed them aside. Mitt will identify our enemies and call a spade a spade, and a terrorist a terrorist. In contrast, Obama has sided with our enemies, invited them to the White House, and conspired with them in secret deals. He called the attack on our military at Ft. Hood “workplace violence” instead of a radical Muslim terrorist attack. If Obama can’t bring himself to identify the enemy, how are our soldiers supposed to defeat them?
Obama may revert to his canned talking points, but those may not save him in this final round. Obama is at a disadvantage without TOTUS standing by to prompt him, and it should be easy for Mitt to get under Obama’s very thin skin. Be on the lookout for Obama’s drug induced performance. It should be easy to spot now that we know his erratic behavior from one debate to the next had all the signs of his using something to enhance his performance.
An aggressive debate performance by Obama will not erase the fact that under his lackluster and Marxist leadership for four years, our nation has faced an unprecedented decline politically, economically and financially both here and abroad. It is time to cast the final blow and knock him out of the running. We can do that on November 6. But tonight, it is Mitt’s chance to knock him out!
It is anticipated that Obama will be the loser with a capital “L” engraved on his forehead when the final bell is rung. The best man for the job as president will win tonight, and on November 6th the American people will hit Obama with a final blow… a TKO!
We want Mitt Romney to come out fighting and be declared the winner in the final round tonight by running circles around the anti-American, TWAP, or Empty Chair.
