Porky Politician

Last night’s presidential debate made me think that Barack Obama is a Looney Tunes cartoon fan.

To Mitt Romney’s penetrating questions and statistics about the President’s performance in his four years of office, Barry-O sounded just like Porky Pig, “A-ba-dee, aba-dee, a-ba-dee!”

Without a teleprompter full of prepackaged slick rhetoric, Mr. President was on the ropes trying to answer from the cuff about government spending, military splicing, tax increasing, energy hoarding, and a hostile healthcare takeover.

Even lib media outlets are having to choke out admissions that the President “wasn’t at his best” last night.

I’m not sure what Obama’s “best” is. Is it doubling gas prices? Increasing the national deficit by 50%? Or bumping up the unemployment rate and putting 15 million more people on food stamps?

Here’s a paraphrased summary of the debate:

Mitt Romney: I have a distinct five-part plan to rebuild our country’s economy. One, “Get us energy independent.”
Barack Obama: You’re rich so all your policies are going to favor the rich.
MR: “Number two, open up more trade.”
BO: You’re rich so all your policies are going to favor the rich.
MR: Number three, increase and strengthen education and training programs.
BO: You’re rich so all your policies are going to favor the rich.
MR: “Number four, get us a balanced budget.”
BO: You’re rich so all your policies are going to favor the rich.
MR: “Number five, champion small business.”
BO: You’re soooooo freakin’ rich so all your policies are going to favor the rich.

That’s all Big O had all night.

Desperation was especially apparent when Obama kept telling Romney what his tax cut plan was even though Romney kept telling him that’s NOT what his tax cut plan was. Romney’s comeback was classic. “I know that you and your running mate keep saying that and I know it’s a popular thing to say with a lot of people, but it’s just not the case. Look, I’ve got five boys. I’m used to people saying something that’s not always true, but just keep on repeating it and ultimately hoping I’ll believe it.”

Loved it.

Anyone who is a parent knows you can’t argue that metaphor.

When a kid is nailed and he knows it, his last defense is to create his own reality and stand by it.

I, for one, am tired of the fantasy Obama has been trying to pass off as reality to America.

His fantasies went so far last night as to compare what he’s spending on enabling government programs to Abraham Lincoln using government financing to build the Transcontinental Railroad back in Civil War times.

Pshaw.

I just hope Abe had his stovetop hat pulled tight over his ears so he can continue to rest in peace.

Romney called Obama out on his delusions when he said, “You’re entitled, Mr. President, as the president to your own airplane and your own house, but not to your own facts.”

Amen.

No matter what Obama promises or tries to excuse away, the past four years have spoken for themselves.

The show is over.

Even Porky knows that when he’s done bumbling the only thing left to say is, “That’s all folks!”
