You know you're having a stinky presidential debate when MSNBC's leftist Chris Matthews is no longer talking about how you once gave him a warm, fuzzy feeling up his leg.
Hours after Obama was slapped down, I am still gloating at how awful he did during the first presidential debate on Wednesday night. Finally, the country and media saw Obama for what he really was -- an arrogant and petty punk from the wards of Chicago.
"I had five seconds left before you interrupted me," was my favorite -- and most telling -- line Obama said all night.
Obama was clearly uncomfortable. A man cocking his leg behind the lectern is a sure sign of a man knowing he's getting his rear kicked.
And liberals make fun of George W. Bush?
What was uncomfortably noticeable was how Obama rarely made eye contact with Mitt Romney. Obama just looked down at his notes or away from Romney. When Obama did talk, he babbled aimlessly...for a few moments there, I thought gaffe-meister Joe Biden might have yanked his boss off the stage.
Truly irritating was all of Obama's "um's" and "uh's" mumbled throughout all his trite class-warfare references. I would almost wager my DirecTV that Obama had never joined Toastmasters.
I was happily surprised how tough Mitt was on the stage. I have been frustrated by his soft performances. Conservatives do best, and are most persuasive, when they are loud and proud when advocating conservative principles.
We're right. Liberals are wrong, so there is no point going wobbly just so the media won't accuse you of being meanie.
People like bold leadership, so conservatives shouldn't be shy about showing it.
I was suspecting Mitt might take out Obama like he took out Newt Gingrich during a spring debate, but I did not suspect Mitt to throw so many knock-down punches.
The liberal media is doing everything it can to prop up their ideological poster child in the wake of the debate. Some pundits are even starting to blame Jim Lehrer of PBS -- PBS! -- for Obama's disastrous performance.
As a conservative, I thought Wednesday night was a night of pure political schadenfreude because Obama got the slap-down he deserved.
Obama may be competing for California if he turns in a few more debate duds like he did Wednesday night.
Romney was not my first, or second...or third...choice for the Republican nomination. But his Tuesday night performance, coupled with selecting conservative stalwart Paul Ryan as his veep, assuaged my fears that Romney was too soft for the nation's top job.
