How to debate Obama

How to debate Obama

With time running and the media declaring the race all but over, the debates are Mitt Romney’s best chance to convince Americans he is their next CEO.  Don’t forget to stay tuned to Human Events Oct. 3, 11, 16 and 22 for the best analysis and coverage of the presidential and vice presidential debates in the lead up to the Nov. 6 election.

How do you debate Obama? Make him own the economy
by David Harsanyi
Mitt Romney needs to puncture with facts President Barack Obama’s puffy and ludicrous claims of success related to the economy. The coming debates are his final chance to directly challenge the president.

How to debate President Obama — and win
by Newt Gingrich
EXCLUSIVE: Romney will “do just fine” in the Oct. 3 debate, says former presidential candidate Newt Gingrich. Newt, probably the most successful GOP debater, advises Mitt to relax, be honest and assertive and enjoy the evening.

It’s debatable
by George Will
The spectacles we persist in dignifying as presidential “debates” — two-minute regurgitations of rehearsed responses — often subtract from the nation’s understanding.

Mitt’s take-home-pay message
by Larry Kudlow
One of the reasons Mitt Romney and the GOP failed to get a convention bounce was their inability to talk tax cuts, economic growth and jobs.

Go large, Mitt
by Charles Krauthammer
How far ahead would Romney be if he were actually running a campaign? His unwillingness to go big, to go for the larger argument, is simply astonishing.

    when obama says that he isn’t finished yet, needs more time, what he really means is he isn’t finished with trying to destroy Our Country, America.

    Don’t compare obama with Rosa Parks!! She is a real black lady who fought hard for black rights. Obama is not USA black, he is not even “full” black., so what would he know of black peoples rights, black peoples hard days and no jobs? He didn’t even live in the slumbs or tough times at all. What? Do you believe in holocaust? Well, holocaust by any other name is obamacare. obama as hitler wants all people who drain the gov, dead, yep dead. I have medically ill friends who dread, really dread obamacare, even the word says “death”. He had four yrs to hurt you, economy, oilfield, lower gas prices, grocery prices and more. Get rid of him, let obama fall by the wayside. How long are you gonna let him blame Mr Bush for everything, get real. Mr Bush had nothing to do with these last four yrs of heartache, pocketache and toothache. Wake up America, wake UP

  • Wxcynic

    You can’t debate him. He is a wordsmith, and a good one at that. Where is Ross Perot and his charts?

    “Mr Obama. Our people are out of work, our government is dangerously in debt, and our ambassadors and immigration police are being murdered because of YOUR policies. You want a second chance to be President of the United States. You don’t even deserve a second chance to be president of the Harvard law review. People may be offended that I say that to you out loud, but in their hearts they know its true.”

  • globalcrap

    Just ask him for his O Bogus passport. Case closed.

    If Romney should do anything, at least project strong ideals and a personality. I have said this numerous times, that the establishment GoP better win this election lest the entire premise of moderate candidates goes out the window.

    It seems to me, when conservative principles are artfully articulated and strongly defended, the candidate wins. Conservatism isn’t left or rightwing, it is the heart and soul of America.

  • Joe_Farnakle

    Debunked long ago. There were no travel restrictions for Americans then.

    If Obama lies Romney should cough uncomfortably and so “uh…., I don’t want to call you a,……….. look, that isn’t factual because X Y and Z.

    He should figure out how to take the gloves off and expose Obama without ever actually calling a liar directly, and the whole time keeping cool and collected, unless of course he should show the slightest hint of emotion about what is happening to the country because of Obmas bungling, never explosive anger, but maybe some glint would be ok, or a very quiet word about how our embassy should be safe.

  • PR_Ohio

    Without his teleprompter Obama will be stammering and uh-ing all over the place. He’s not brilliant, and he’s not a good wordsmith, it’s all marketing and the sycophant media just makes this stuff up about him.

    Hammer his record, and treat him like a 4-year old when he makes all his outlandish and grandiose claims. The narcissistic man-child can’t take it when he’s challenged, so don’t let up. When he’s rattled double down.

    The debate will be over and the media will declare Obama the winner, but the voting public will know better.

  • RenegadeScholar

    The only thing Obama has in common with American blacks is that their ancestors came here as slaves, while his Kenyan ancestors probably sold slaves to the Arabs.

  • RenegadeScholar

    He is a wordsmith

    No–he reads words from a teleprompter that were written by wordsmiths.

    He’s a bumbler. Set him on edge. He’s incredibly thin-skinned. He’ll fall apart.

  • TanongSak

    Wonderfully stated! You say just about all one needs to know about the imposter.

  • Altosackbuteer

    None whatsoever? False. Americans have been banned from travelling to Cuba and North Korea for decades.
    And I believe Pakistan was on that list in 1975 when Øbama Øsama visited it.
    By the way, WHY on earth DID Øbama Øsama visit that particular hell-hole?
    And on WHAT passport?

  • Altosackbuteer

    I have heard Øbama will actually be aided during debates with a teleprompter. Any truth to that?
    If so, it gives Romney a TREMENDOUS opening. All Romney gotta say is, “Mr. President, why don’t you tell us what you REALLY think, instead of reading canned responses from a telepropmpter?”

  • Altosackbuteer

    Øbama Øsama indeed has Black, Negroid features — but he’s NOT “African-American.”
    What strongly unites African-Americans is their common ancestry to slaves in the American pre-Civil War South and the resulting century-long struggle for civil rights and full equality. It is indelibly ingrained into their culture, and they relate to each other coming from this common culture. And Øbama Øsama lies TOTALLY outside that. He CAN’T TRULY relates to REAL African-Americans.
    It’s truly a wonder that he enjoys near unanimous support from African-Americans.

    Romney should hit obama with how much wages has declined since obama became president! The Middle Class is now taking home, on average, $7,500.00 Dollars less in 2012 than they did because of obama’s insane policies!

  • justinwachin

    Mr. Obama’s economic policies have led the nation to the brink of financial ruin. Perhaps Gov. Romney should ask the Bamster what he will do in the next four years to reverse the damage of the first term.

    President Obama has presided over a government which in less than four years has created as much debt as the nation did from the time of George Washington through Bill Clinton.

    If Obama drifts onto Romney’s 47 percent remark, Mitt should state he wants to create an economy so prosperous that able-bodied people will not need government checks. President Obama’s policies will not lead to prosperity. It is time to try a different approach.


    If it was the case of Romney speaking with a stomach for greatness, it would be no contest. His problem, in my view, is that he wants to be the manager of this country, not a great leader, and there lies the problem. A good Honest Adminstrative Manager debating a Chicago Cowardly Thug. It will be fun to watch, and the manager has my vote, along with 15 other members of my family.

  • Joe_Farnakle

    That is completely incorrect. In fact, when Obama traveled to Pakistan, Reagan was working on forging close alliances with Pakistan and US travel was being ENCOURAGED. The State Department shows that there were absolutely NO bans when Obama traveled there. So the question of “which” passport is irrelevant because any US passport could be used.

  • Joe_Farnakle

    And… what is that ridiculous “Obama Osama” business? Obviously you forgot that Obama had our national enemy Osama Bin Laden executed, as opposed to George W. Bush who repeatedly let him slip through his fingers and eventually gave up even looking for him in 2005 when he shut down the CIA “Alec Station” unit tasked with hunting Bin Laden.

  • Altosackbuteer

    The only trouble with your stupid theory is, Øbama Øsama visited Pakistan IN 1975, 5 years before Reagan BECAME President. If memory serves me correctly, Pakistan was on the State Department’s bleep list, in part, because of their savage attempt around tht time to keep East Pakistan — no Bangladesh — united with West Pakistan.

  • Altosackbuteer

    “Øbama Øsama” is a name which your boy Fat Boy Teddy Bare Kennedy invented when he first met Øbama and tried to say his name and totally mangled it.
    You are such a LYING TROLL. Bush did his level best to find Osama bin Laden. it was not for want of effort. It simply didn’t happen for him. He was unlucky and Øbama was lucky. Such is life.
    Not getting him doesn’t mean Bush was negligent. Getting him doesn’t mean Øbama Øsama was diligent.
