The Jacksonville GOP debate ended on the ominous note of essentially burning-up on re-entry, as Santorum had performed masterfully, on this night of Conservative angst, right up until he tried to explain why he should be President.
Santorum, who had earlier laid out a beautifully orchestrated, master comparison, on the demerits of Romneycare versus Obamacare, essentially simmered Romney in his own healthcare juices. The fact that we had actually conceived and written a cautionary tale on this very scenario during a Romney versus Obama debate, several months ago, only made it that much sweeter for this writer. You see, our chief problem with Romney, among others moving forward, is his mandated health plan for Massachusetts being Obamacare’s model. The fact that Romney will have a most considerably difficult time explaining his rationale for Romneycare, with what both has been and will be, a chief issue in the 2012 election, can only accentuate his culminating appearance as being the Right-Wing’s prime minister of hypocrisy.
But on the final question being delivered to a brilliant Santorum on this night, as to why he would be the most qualified to be President, Santorum’s rambling answer amounted to this:
Um….Because of Obama’s answer to Midwest manufacturing…
Say what? He pretty much lost me, and probably everyone else, on that sum-it-up disaster of an enigmo mystery theater closing remark.
But Romney, on the last question, paused from an entire night of stabbing Newt Gingrich in the back, with his 14-inch platinum butcher’s knife, long enough to gave a stirring answer. An answer which was to prove astonishingly erudite for a guy who lived, on this evening of debate, in a gold-plated, diamond encrusted cardboard-Demon box located in the dank, cheap-shot alley zip code that he gleefully resides in much of the time, as it turns out.
I mean come on Mitt….
I’ve seen military base loan sharks who were far more gracious than Romney–and with far sweeter dispositions.
Romney’s main opponent in Gingrich, who having noted the crowd’s languishing attention, along with the mounting consternation of Paul and Santorum in the Blitzer-agitated snipe-fest, had actually suggested a temporary truce with an outstretched hand to Romney. In answer, Romney peered over at Wolf Blitzer, cut a lizard-like glance at Newt, and then promptly chomped Gingrich’s outstretched hand off like a hungry, malevolent velociraptor with young to feed, no less.
Classy guy, this is.
But at least Romney did finally show us his big-money, tunnel vision, Wall Street-predator side. When the subject of a visionary scope came up regarding, the moon, space exploration, and even a future commercially financed Moon colony, as predicated by Gingrich, Romney, yet again, indicated he would just “fire the guy” for bringing the subject up.
Yikes….so that’s how he did so well with the Olympics…..
At any rate….Good thing Kennedy saw space exploration in an entirely different light. We could have all grown up drinking “Tang-yevsky” orange juice, if Romney had been in charge, it should be noted.
But, sheez, Mitt apparently just loves seeing people lose their jobs, it would seem. Saying “You’re Fired” is apparently one of Romney’s chief goals in life. I mean, the man seemingly talks about it all the time. Watch out Donald Trump, I think I can see where Mitt is headed if the presidency doesn’t exactly pan out for him. Although, it should be noted that Trump’s billions would make even Romney seem a pauper (Na-na-na-na-na). However, Romney’s penchant for seeing folks lose their jobs, after already being skewered for it by the press only a few weeks ago, is a thing that both Romney and Obama have in common, and in spades. Common ground, in fact, between Obama and Romney is actually not so hard to find, according to George Soros, of all people.
Moving onto our Conservative hero in Gingrich, Newt seemed to spend most of the night slumping over his lecturn and grimacing, as if the “Politico-Abysmal” that had been poured down his throat all day by the Establishment Media and the moderate Politicos, was finally taking its full and mostly fatal effect.
The fiery guy with loads of gravitas appeared almost burnt out, and he even allowed Romney to challenge him on money earned without the slightest, “are you kidding me,” reprisal. So, look Newt, the next time Mitt brings up anything regarding money, just start laughing insanely; that’s all you have to do, dude. I mean, come on.
In fact, Romney left some gaping-wide holes in his arguments that Newt could have navigated the Costa Concordia through, and even score massive applause points, to boot, without coming close to any shoals. But Newt just stood there looking smugly disarmed, like a big sleepy Q-tip that had lost its way in a forgivingly complex, and yet unforgivingly greasy, ear canal, for Heaven’s sake. Probably still gun-shy over the still ridiculous “Left-Wing Language” Bulls**t” that the establishment has placed into effect to protect their Golden gullah in Romney.
Ron Paul? Well, he elucidated some really fantastic answers on the domestic side, and then, with a surgeon’s deft precision, blew it all up again on the foreign side, grinning endearingly the entire time. He apparently enjoys building things up and then blowing them to smithereens, but at least he’s mostly honest, and for Heaven’s sake, you can’t help but to love the man.
Ron Paul , aside from his other many talents, could have been a special effects guy extraordinaire in Hollywood and done just smashingly, as it turns out.
