–  The Bottom Line  –

Of course since he first lied to the nation in 2008 about attending 'Reverend' Wright's church but 'never hearing him' – I have not listened to a thing Barack Obama has said.  I have this little problem about wasting my time listening to anything a known pathological liar has to say (Does Bill Clinton come to mind? – never listened to him either in 8 years of office or after..)

But I did DVR the Presidential Debate for the sole purpose of hoping I would see Mitt Romney show us that he's more than just a good businessman.  Not that that is bad.  In fact THAT IS ALL WE NEED in the White House.  Never the less, we know that qualifications and experience are a distant fourth behind looks, 'gift of gab' and media hype when it comes to winning national office.  Well Mr. Romney definitely has the looks but he always seemed not to have the ability to connect with his speaking and his 'bland' personality.  And then there's the Brain Dead Media who remain in the tank for Obama.

As we found out in George H.W. Bush's second election run, (and since the JFK-Nixon Debate), all the experience and qualifications are meaningless unless you can come across with a better personality on screen than your opponent.  Well thank God Romney was able to rise to the occasion to communicate to all watching that between his experience and Obama's lack thereof and between his successes and Obama's failures, this is not even a close call.

Which brings us to the most relevant aspect of this entire debate.  For the first time since he gave his speech at the Democratic National Convention in 2004, the real Barack Obama was seen by the nation.  Never before has a national political figure been exposed so clearly as was this media constructed 'empty suit' that is Barack Hussein Obama.

 Here's Andrew Klaven's spot on description of Obama:

Barack Obama has always been less real than dream—a media dream.
Posted by Andrew Klaven on October 5, 2012
 
Even before his inauguration, Barack Obama was an imaginary man, the creation of his admirers. Think back to the 2008 Time magazine cover depicting him as FDR, the Newsweek cover of the same year on which he was shown casting Lincoln’s shadow, or the $1.4 million Nobel Peace Prize awarded to him “for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples”—this in 2009, less than a year after he had taken office. It was not that Obama had done nothing to deserve these outsized comparisons and honors—it was not just that he had done nothing—it was that he seemed for all the world to be a blank screen on which such hysterical fantasies could too easily be projected, a two-dimensional paper doll just waiting to be dressed in leftist dreams.
 
Obama’s hapless fumbling, bad temper, and inarticulate inability to defend his record were actually thoroughly predictable. They were simply facets of the man as he truly is, unfiltered by the imagination of his media supporters: a man who has succeeded, really, at almost nothing but the winning of elections; a man who cannot distinguish between his ideology and life; a man who does not seem to know how the machinery of the world actually works.  …
