I Did It - PhillyBurbs.com

     I did it.  I sat through the entire 90 minute Presidential Debate on October 16th held at Hofstra University.  This was a very difficult task exposing myself to a smug, arrogant, condescending, self-absorbed and incompetent thing posing as a President, but I felt compelled to do my duty.  What I won’t do for you people.
     The moderator, Candy Crawley, filled my TV screen with a very profound “lib” affect and my heart sank.  Should I just pull the plug and call it a day?  “No, Cory; you must work through this”, I said to myself.  In all fairness, I think that Candy did a pretty good job.
     The debate followed a “townhall” format with a small group offering questions.  A young college student initiated the discussion by asking the combatants how he is to support himself after graduating from college.  Romney said, “I’m going to make sure that you get a job.”  I said, “WTF”.  Obama went into a diatribe about manufacturing, tax codes, education and energy. 
     I felt bad for this kid since no one ever mentioned anything about personal responsibility, accountability and self-reliance.  A Candidate Steiner might have suggested that he be more determined to succeed regardless of conditions.  Overcome, adapt and improvise and stop whining.  I’d then beat his parents for ill-preparing him to be an American citizen.  Seriously.  What an embarrassing opening of a Presidential Debate. 
     I think I’d consider ending it all if I felt that I had to rely on a politician for my lot in life.  Just listening to this actually did make me consider ending it all. 
     Romney continued by speaking about the current state of unemployment which Obama then retorted by saying that our current problems are the direct result of the policies that Romney espouses.  I just sat there staring at the TV making in my pants.
     Obama then went into a tizzy about his energy policy awesomeness.  I won’t go much into it because he lied and then kept on lying.  I started strangling myself, but was saved by Romney as he discussed how US energy production is way down due to permit abuse, ridiculous regulation and a hatred for all things pipeline.
     At this point Romney was “owning” Obama whose policies speak for themselves in the form of a big massive failure of epic failure proportions.
     Romney continued about simplifying the tax code, but went into the typical political-speak of “middle class this” and “high-income that” which really does no one any good.  Obama responded with his relief for the middle-class, tough spending cuts, taking more from the wealthy and somehow worked Big Bird and Planned Parenthood in there.  If they keep at it with all this abortion there won’t be anyone to watch Big Bird anyway.  Make up your minds.
     Then we went into so-called “Inequality in the Workplace”.  Planned Parenthood made another appearance as did contraception through insurance coverage.  I had already committed to you, the reader, that I’d endure this, but at this point I didn’t know whether to laugh, cry or stuff my face so I ran to the freezer for some ice cream.  If you get a chance, Breyer’s Natural Vanilla with Skippy Super Chunk added is proof that there’s a God.
     Then some New York lib with the most annoyingly whiney New York accent asked how Romney is different from President Bush and is there a chance that we’ll be returning to those dreaded Bush policies.  Fortunately my wife’s a nurse and was able to give me some sort of injection.  I’m not sure what it was, but it did stop the drooling.  I screamed “serenity now!!!” and continued. 
     Romney said some typical nonsense and I couldn’t figure out what Obama said. 
     What followed next was an onslaught of all the biggies – Medicare, Social Security, the deficit, unemployment, health care, more on the middle-class, poverty, the economy, immigration, etc.  Mayhem began to ensue and was controlled nicely by the moderator; I thought.  There’s a lot of criticism of her, but I didn’t see it.
     Finally a good question - someone brought up Libya.  I’m trying to wrap things up so I’ll be brief.  I’d cancel the debate and start impeachment proceedings.  A stunning lack of leadership unlike anything I’ve EVER seen has transpired and anyone that plans on voting for Obama needs to stay away from me.  If you don’t know what I’m talking about then you have yet another reason to stay away from me because I will hurt you.  I’m very angry and there’s something horribly wrong with you if you’re not.
     A whole thing went on about those “assault weapons” in the hands of criminals.  The concern should really be over the actual hands of criminals and not an inanimate object.  My neighborhood is a safer place specifically because of my weaponry and would be less safe without it.  Unless  you’re a violent criminal my gun collection is no more dangerous than your shoe collection.
     “Assault weapons” are defined as such by mostly cosmetic features.  The weapons that we’re being led to believe are “assault weapons” have been heavily regulated since 1934 and there’s plenty of safer-looking hunting rifles that are infinitely more powerful.  Maybe if President Obama didn’t put hundreds or thousands of these weapons in the hands of Mexican drug lords for the purpose of furthering an anti-2nd Amendment agenda we’d have one less reason to initiate impeachment proceedings.
     On the topic of “outsourcing” Romney continued speaking about how to make it more attractive to stay in or come to America as opposed to “trickle down government”.  He also discussed how China manipulates their own currency to keep prices artificially low thereby attracting more manufacturing to China.  A counter to this sort of behavior, in his view, would be tariffs.
     Obama responded with job creation, closing loopholes, trading policies and science and research.
     Romney saved my day by saying, “Government does not create jobs.”.  What took you so long to get that out?  You had me scared for awhile.  I was thinking that maybe both candidates were Democrats.
     Romney closed out with some words on his private sector experience.  Obama retorted about free markets, self-reliance and individual initiative which I didn’t buy for some reason.
     Overall, I don’t think that either candidate came away with a resounding upper hand, but Obama’s 4 years speaks for itself.  It’s very clear that I should have run for President, but Romney’s the best we have right now and he might end up doing a great job. 
     If he wins, though, I would suggest resisting any celebration.  The hard work will begin on November 8th to make sure a President Romney stays on course.  It’s our job as American citizens to have at least one eyeball on his ass at all times and restore this nation to its founding principles. 
     It’s up to us and not any particular politician or politicians.  In the mean time I’d really like to somehow get these 90 minutes back.  I should have picked another topic for this week.  That was too much.
