Romney vs Obama Round III – It’s All Down to Boca Raton (VIDEO) (LIVE)

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.


Two men enter. One man becomes President.

What can we expect from this last debate?

1. Fewer people paying attention. A lot of people have sat through two of these debates and the ranks of undecided voters are thinning out. That’s not great news, because it leaves the media with a clear field to set their narrative.

2. Diminishing impact. People have seen Romney and Obama go up against each other. Few surprises are expected. And the foreign policy focus is not really a priority. Most polls lead with the economy. Security is a secondary concern. Important, but not election-deciding.

3. Increased aggressiveness from Obama. All his notes have been about going more aggressive. But that’s more to boost the morale of his supporters. Despite the headline here, unless Romney screws up very badly, this debate is not likely to have a major impact.

4. Gaffe gotchas. What the media want from this debate is a moment that they can spend a week spinning against Romney. All they had last time around were the miserable binders. Let’s hope their latest bid will be equally hipster stupid.

5. It’s Romney’s election to lose.

    Obama is better rehearsed this time out, but it's all deception.

    If I'm not mistaken he's just criticized his own domestic policies!

    Lying, interrupting obama —- whining barry the wimp.

    Romney/Ryan 2012.

  • Daniel Greenfield

    I'm calling Obama's "Horses ships" line the dumbest moment in the debate.

    • Gylippus

      I guess he thought it revealed his cutting edge awareness of the strategy of technology. This coming from the man who mandated NASA to help Muslims feel better about themselves!

      Obama’s starting to smirk again, but the compliant network is pulling the camera away.

      • Daniel Greenfield

        I wonder what advanced technology is going to replace ships? Maybe weaponized surfboards?

        • Gylippus

          I think they have nuclear floaties nowdays.

          • Daniel Greenfield

            nuclear surfboards have made battleships as obsolete as horses

          • Gylippus

            Daniel I think you have found the game changing sound bite to turn around Obama's campaign. This is the change we have been hoping for.

          • Daniel Greenfield

            It's change we can believe in.

            Obama will keep faith with our veterans by firing 20,000 Marines and replacing them with modern technology, like killer robots.

          • Gylippus

            Putin, Chavez and Castro all agree: Obama will keep faith with our veterans by being more flexible with our nuclear deterrents if he is re-elected.

    Greatest Security threat = Barack Hussein Obama

      "Obama is likely a Saudi plant in the Oval Office"

      As implausible or even crazy as this sounds, it actually is possible.
