By Columnist TRB - Romney looks like a guy who just ate something really bad - and enjoyed it.
Obama looks like a guy who eats well and works out a lot.
Okay, that is out of the way. It could be that Romney is also hitting the tanning bed. Last time I saw him he looked like a piece of toast who had eaten something really bad and enjoyed it.
This is what I expect to see at the debates - an angry white guy, who really believes the Oval Office belongs to him. (Recently, his wife said "It's our turn," as though they were next in line or something.) Don't expect too much out of the 47 percent "quip" Romney made last week. He has already concocted a suitable lie out of that which includes Romney, the multi-millionaire on food stamps during his youth and other sci fi by Pkillip K. Dick.
The debate will be different because a moderator will be asking the questions. Any questions. Questions like President Obaba's "Dream Act," which will allow children who were young when they were brought here to apply for citizenship now. Romney was firmly against this Act for ages, but now, the day of the first debate, he's all for it. And he's not talking about cutting Social Security anymore, or medicare. It is just too close to the election for that kind of talk. As I said, he has taken back the 47 percent quip and replaced it with a number of things. He wouldn't throw people out on the street. He would actually feed hungry children. And Grandma wouldn't be hauled off to the land fill. Or so he claims.
The flip-flopper has flip-flopped again. And if he becomes President, he will flip-flop back. Such is the nature of Mitt Romney. Not very long ago people like Romney were called "liars." Today, it is just another job.
One of Romney's hatchetmen has apparently written a series of "quips" for him tonight. Personally, I think that is a bad idea. President Obama is skilled at stuffing quips back down "quippers" throats.
Another thing out there is that Romney wants to talk about the troubles in the Middle East and how badly it reflects on Obama's foreign policy. First of all Romney knows nothing about Middle Eastern politics except what his longtime personal friend, the Prime Minister of Israel tells him. You know the guy - he draws Rocky & and Bullwinkle bombs for the U.N. If Romney gets in, expect the Middle East to experience nuclear war between Israel, Pakistan, maybe Iran. On the other hand, Obama's foreign policy there has been to end one war he did not start, And begin to end another war he did not start. That, and planning the successful assassination of the world's worst terrorist, bin Laden and most of his army.
Yes, terrorists murdered the U.S. Ambassador to libya recently. It is a very volatile area, and what gives Romney more experience in matters there? Nothing. In fact if the Romney family wants to help out in the Middle East, why not encourage some of his sons to volunteer for military duty?
Chances are Obama will not be able to answer too many of Romney's Middle East questions. Romney doesn't have the high-level clearances,
Let's hope he never does.
