I am going to go a little Dennis Miller on everyone and throw out an obscure historical figure as an example to illustrate my point. Barack Obama reminded me of the Carthaginian general, Hannibal, in last night’s debate.

Hannibal lives in infamy for his take no prisoners style of warfare during the Punic Wars. He is known as one of the most brutal military figures in history. He was feared for burning entire cities to the ground and killing all prisoners. Driven by the a hatred for Rome that he shared with his father, he vowed to take revenge . He was the first real threat encountered by the seemingly invincible Roman Empire.

I swear so soon as age will permit…I will use fire and steel to arrest the destiny of Rome.

Obama has been waging a war with America, the new Roman Empire, since his childhood. He too has vowed to “arrest the destiny” of, or “fundamentally transform”, America. Looking at his results over the past four years, he has proven more successful at destroying the nation than any foreign army could ever dream. Like Hannibal, he has inherited a hatred for this nation from his father. Obama’s autobiographical book “Dreams From My Father” is verification of this fact in Obama’s own words.

Last nights debate revealed the hostility that Obama has for this nation. He used unethical, never seen before practices to win the debate against Romney.; not to mention having Crowley as his second in command. Even more disturbing, he has used his Presidency to subvert the Constitution and the rule of law to accomplish a Socialist/Communist hybrid form of governance. We have been steered into unknown and unfamiliar seas. Liberals are still beating their chests in celebration.

What Obama fails to realize is that Romney, while an imperfect candidate, resembles the Roman Army. The Romans were defeated in their battles against the scorched earth tactics of Hannibal. Knowing that they could not defeat him by staying on the defense, they eventually took the fight head on to Hannibal’s own country of Carthage. This proved to be Hannibal’s undoing. He had won the battles, but lost the war.

Despite the dirty tactics of Obama and the media,  (28 interruptions for Romney vs 9 for Obama and 9% more speaking time), polls show that undecided voters were turned toward Romney in last night’s debate. Let’s hope that Hofstra is the new Carthage.


I must confess, I have been so let down by the Republican Party that I didn’t expect much from Romney in last night’s debate. I was clinging to the hope, (with my free hand because I had my gun, religion and antipathy in the other) that Romney would surprise me. He came through- I am surprised and delighted. However, I can’t get rid of the nagging little feeling that it is all going to go horribly wrong.

The Democrats are already on the march today. They have coordinated a new attack on Romney. They are calling him “The new Romney”. Apparently, this “new” title is the explanation for Obama’s poor performance last night. Obama and his minions are claiming that Romney made up everything he said last night and that  this was the first time that they had heard any of it. Ergo- it was all news to Obama. Those of us that follow the campaign closely are left scratching our heads saying “Really? That’s all you got?”  Al Gore put more effort into his theory. He said that the altitude  was to blame. He scores points for creativity even though I think HE is the only one who is high.

Every liberal has a crazy theory as to “Why!?” Obama lost the debate. We all know that the real reason was that Obama did not prepare properly. He has been too busy pretending to be an A lister to perform any serious presidential duties. Even those pesky security briefings have had to take a back seat. The (gulp) “ladies” on The View, Jay-Z and David Letterman have jumped to the top of America’s priority list. I’m sure that all of the Ambassadors, Border Security Agents and Israelis will understand the important reasons for these choices. Hey, does anyone know exactly what those reasons are? I think I heard that Netanyahu had  something he wanted to talk to him about.

All of this aside, the best part about Romney winning the debate HAD to be watching the clips of the news anchors on NBC and MSNBC. NBC has become the theater of the absurd. My favorite meltdown came from Chris Mathews. If you haven’t seen it- you should track it down. The thrill up his leg is gone- for now. He acted like Veruca Salt when she was told she couldn’t have a squirrel.

Equally delicious was the interview of John Sununu by Mrs. Allen Greenspan, Andrea Mitchell. She  was apoplectic during the interview. During his debate analysis, Sununu said that he thought Obama lost because was “lazy” and disinterested in the debate process. She looked like the cat that ate the canary when she asked him if he wanted to take the wording back. The implication being that calling a black man lazy is racist. NBC uses the term “dog whistle” in reference to the hidden code of racism that only Republicans can hear. John refused to fall victim to this trap and said “No.”- he didn’t want to take it back. The segment ended with a priceless stink face from Andrea. She didn’t get a squirrel either.

For NBC, “racism” is the “Portlandia” equivalent to “Put a bird on it.” An added bonus- in the comments that accompanied the Mitchell clip, someone referred to her as “the broom that falls out of the closet every time you open it.” Poetry.

Tomorrow, I am certain that the glow of my new found optimism will fade. I fear the poison apple that is being prepared by the Obama Campaign. Romney has become our Prince Charming, our Obi-wan, our only human hope. Will his kiss be enough to break the spell of big government? Hmmm, all of this excitement is making me tired. Someone wake me in the morni….zzzzzzzzz.
