Taken To School

I didn’t watch the live coverage of “Romney-Obama One,” but the replays and post debate commentary vividly captured what had happened. Just as boxing aficionados suspected from day one that heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson might lose his “Iron” invincibility the first time he was forced to face a sustained diet of crisp jabs, so we observed last night what I have been saying from the beginning–Obama cannot stand up to a person who has a firm command of the facts and/or a person who is not in awe of him.

What happened last night is the reason Obama will not meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu–it’s because the Prime Minister “schooled” him publicly. Netanyahu spoke truth and facts and did not waver; in short, he confronted Obama’s penchant for saying a lot of nothing as just that.

That’s what Romney did last night, and it started from the moment they walked on stage. Obama entered the stage with his patented “mac-daddy, hip-hop, ghetto swagger” as Romney strode easily and confidently toward him. For all intents and purposes, the debate was over at that very moment. Obama knew he had entered the exam room hopelessly unprepared. And Obama knew something else as well. He knew that no amount of preparation was ever going to prepare him for these debates.

That’s, in part, because Obama is a Neo-Leninist, ergo, he is unable to share his philosophy and true feelings in a public forum such as last night. This wasn’t a problem his first time around because he didn’t have to explain himself. He was able to take advantage of an adoring and fawning media and the 97 percent who looked like Juan Williams who threw rose petals as he walked and shed tears of worship at his feet.

It also didn’t hurt that in his presidential debates with John McCain he was debating a person who had graduated fifth from the bottom of his graduating class at the Naval Academy. That’s right, McCain graduated 894th out of 899 Cadets in his graduating class and it showed (and it still does, for that matter). But in Romney, Obama was confronted by someone who had actually studied to get his Harvard Law Degree and Harvard Business Degree.

With few exceptions, most fights are won before the combatants ever set foot into the ring. Stepping into the ring is just an exercise to amuse and/or pleasure the masses. It was that way when Michael Spinks fought Mike Tyson. And it was that way with Romney-Obama One.

Obama’s statement that “It’s not where we’ve been but where we’re going,” was laughable. If he remotely believes that why is he still blaming Bush? His concluding statement asking to be reelected based on a promise to work really-really hard was pathetic. And why was he channeling Bill Clinton last night?

Which brings up another interesting point. Why was the man the media and Hollywood portray as the brightest and the most articulate–stumbling, fumbling, and channeling Bill Clinton? We’ve been led to believe that Obama was all superior–even though his record from day one proved otherwise.

Obama channeled Bill Clinton for cover. He was trying to say that he and Clinton are the same: that they think alike and share the same philosophy. The difference is that Clinton is a born politician (and I do not say that as a compliment), whereas, Obama is not.

Obama is a grade A fake–a charade. He is only comfortable in environments he controls or environments where he is fawned over and flattered as when he appears on “The View.” Which brings me to another observation and that is the reason Obama ducks world leaders like Netanyahu to instead appear on the Letterman Show, the aforementioned View, etc. It’s because he can dazzle them with shinola juxtaposed to facing difficult questions. It’s the reason he would rather campaign–it’s because he craves the cheers.

There was one more thing hampering Obama last night. That is his dissonance. He is forced into a state of confliction because he cannot say what he truly believes for the obvious reasons, chief of which is it’s easy for people to deny he is a Neo-Leninist when they are not confronted with him espousing same in a presidential debate forum.

Obama doesn’t believe in our Free-Market Capitalist system–he hates it with a passion. Remember the many times, including in the debate, that he has said “we tried that and it didn’t work”? Remember his telling business owners that they didn’t build their businesses and that someone else was responsible for the the success of their businesses? Does that sound like someone who embraces Free-Market Capitalism?

In December last year I wrote:
Speaking at Osawatomie High School in Osawatomie, Kansas, Obama said that “limited government” and “rugged individualism doesn’t work and has never worked.” He said that America must “look to a more activist government that taxes more, spends more and regulates more if they want to preserve the middle class.” (Obama Is Greater Threat Than KKK Or Al Qaeda; 12/7/11)

This is Obama’s true ideology and I believe it is why he stammers and stumbles choosing his words. It’s because he is articulating a philosophy that he doesn’t believe in or support when it comes to Capitalism and the people succeeding on individual merit. His view is one that believes in redistribution, and, specific to that point, he has not been shy in repeatedly making that point. He appears to be carefully choosing his words because he is trying to choose words that do not publicly reflect what he intrinsically believes.

Obama will be more animated, come equipped with more pithy myths, in the next debate. But I believe the emperor has been exposed. Though he will mount a valiant effort in the beginning, when confronted with facts and the truth of his own record he will fall like Sonny Listen in his second Ali fight.

    wow the posting comment thing changed, my name always showed as Branwen, but yes Lunabrisa Garcia & Branwen are the same person. anyhow yes Obummer went up there in his normal arrogant way thinking he was going to walk away with the whole show, and his liberal college fan base were upset that he could not use his teleprompter? this cat has got to go.

    One of your best posts yet, Mychal. You nailed it exactly.

  4. SunnyVee October 5, 2012 at 9:44 pm #

    I dreaded watching the debate, but knew I needed to, because I did not want to rely on pundits to tell me what happened. Within the first few minutes, I had to shake my head in wonder, and relief, smiling and loving it at how great Romney was doing, and how terribly Obama was doing. What a relief that I did not need vast quantities of alcohol in order to get through the entire debate! The Left can say whatever it wants, but Romney owned both the debate and Obama that night!

  5. Judy Anderson Hamby October 6, 2012 at 12:06 am #

    Mychal–I've supported you for awhile. Shucks, I even sent $$ to support your Daily Rant. I'm with you just about 100% of the time. I have one complaint to make today though — In my humble opinion your comment about John McCain was out of line. McCain might not be the brightest light; however, he served our country well – and spent 6 years in a Viet Nam prison camp. Fun time! I'm old enough to remember that war and knew several who didn't return. Men who went through pilot training in my hometown. Sad time, sorry war. Lay off McCain.

    • Jeanne Nicholson October 6, 2012 at 1:25 pm #

      I didn’t not read anything Mychal said to mean that McCain didn’t serve his country honorably in war. However, doing so does not mean he cannot be criticized for a lesser showing elsewhere.

      I respect McCain’s service, but will also tell you that he ran his campaign as if he really did NOT want to be President at all. And, guess what, it worked.

    • Annie Hamer October 7, 2012 at 12:10 am #

      Hi Judy, I agree with you that John McCain served our country admirably and certainly also sacrificially. I have great respect and gratitude for him and yet I share Mr Massie's comments regarding Mr McCain and his prowess as a presidential contender and even today in the political spotlight. Stating the facts is not a diminishment of Mr McCain as a hero or as a person. I think it is of critical import that we have a microscopic view–one reason being to not repeat a mistake–a mistake which, I believe, was of historic magnitude in that it abetted Obama's rise to power. Being a great warrior does not necessarily spell President and we absolutely must deal in truth though it may be uncomfortable at times.

    • Sarah Black October 11, 2012 at 5:48 am #

      On John Mccain, I totally agree with Massie.. like another poster, I have much compassion for what he went thru as a POW.. God help the man. I may add, I'm not really a Republican either, but I have my strong conservative belief system that I'll stand by till I die. Mccain is also a major in the army of RINO's. That's someone who bears the mantra of republican but supports many things that are on the DEM platform & has for many years. He also likes to 'act' like he's a christian-type person also, but I believe IS NOT. He's got a nasty bitter attitude towards strong morals & I guess I should drop it for now. But I've heard him say some pretty awful remarks over the years, about People who have christian stances on things, specially Political things. I'm not sure the age of judy H. but maybe You dont know about the 'law' called McCain/Feingold.. U might check that out on your Google or whatever. ~Peace~

    I am sickened by the state of politics and the underhandedness, coniving, lies, and coverups. I am sickened by those who will still vote for someone, regardless of the unscrupulous behavior and total mismanagement. I am equally as sick of the media, who seem to feel they own the right to navigate the direction of our country and propel through blatant bias, who will lead us… and then have the nerve to lie some more and deny they are in any way at fault. And I am sick beyond words of the concept that too many seem to think it’s their right to not have to be responsible–for anything. I think I would have been much happier being born 30 years earlier than I was. I am old enough, and wise enough to realize how terrifying, and how destructive, this overwhelming disfunction and ignorance of our society may prove! Even many in my own family are among those who cannot see beyond the celebrity. Sadly, I’m afraid, we’re all going to pay for it, not just with the election and another four years of this, but for what has already occurred that will not be rectified for many years as it is. I will not give up. We have to keep trying. But it is disheartening that we should even have to fight so hard against this insanity!

    • TexasMom43 October 6, 2012 at 9:19 am #

      The saddest thing of all is that such a large part of our populace prefers the hip-hop ghetto-swinging Mac-Daddy with no leadership abilities to a disciplined knowledgeable man.
      We can thank our culture, our media and our music for much of that.

  7. Snoopsister October 5, 2012 at 7:12 pm #

    Another EXCELLENT Rant, Mychal. I did watch the debate and I almost pitied Obama. I say “almost” because I really can have no pity at all for someone who is actively working to destroy our country, my life and the lives of those who make up this great country (whether they know it or not). Obama performed, sans teleprompter, as the loser he is. He is only a great mouth-piece when delivering speeches written by others. Without them, he is a puppet without a hand. A sad, sad sack. The next debate should be interesting – he’ll probably come out swinging and I anticipate that Romney will remain unruffled – further uncovering Obama for the pathetic, desperate loser he really is when left to speak on his own. Of course, prior to that, we will all bear witness to the Biden-Ryan debate. I will be surprised if Ryan doesn’t mop the floor with Biden. We shall see.

  8. r. woods October 5, 2012 at 5:27 pm #

    Excellent rant! “What goes over the devils back must come under his belly” I remember as a child my German immigrant grand mother using this phrase about evil doers, and did not understand what she meant!
    Well Mychal at age sixty one I now understand, reckon would our White House tenant know what she meant?
    Stay at it my friend, I believe they are on the ropes.

  9. Marilyn October 5, 2012 at 2:47 pm #

    Great Rant, Mychal. I watched the debate from start to finish; then, turned off the television so not to listen to commentators blab their spin on what I had just watched and heard. I hope Romney is ready and stays in offense position for the rest of the debates. Romney’s closing remarks were exceptional.

    there was a black minister on you tube recently talking about obama, saying repeatedly “we gave him everything…” he finished his sermon with three words “the (……) failed”. the paren is for a word i don’t use.

    • Lisa G October 5, 2012 at 6:25 pm #

      Problem is, this minister could be thinking obummer failed because he didn’t deliver on his more extreme promises, that he hasn’t gone far enough in de-humanizing, dividing, and destroying the hated traditional American (white) ways and values; that he hasn’t redistributed enough of other people’s money into their wallets, etc – instead of thinking of him as failed because he has failed to uphold and defend American laws, ways and values. He has been a rousing success however at proving correct anyone who saw through him into his true shallow and anti-American soul. I wonder if his fixated white (especially those smug self-important and bizarrely certain liberals particularly those over 45 who redefine “liberal” as “mine is the only reasonable perspective you and your other ways are to be pitied, dismissed and ridiculed) supporters/apologists will ever recognize what a noxious preening human deficient they annointed as their FAN (First Acceptable Negro) to assuage their self-inflicted “guilt” and magically make them feel just sooooo much better about their own dearth of melanin and things done by people long dead that we as a society have been correcting (unlike other societies for whom racism and/or non-inclusion of those not like them or of other origins remains bedrock oh for example Asia, Arab/islamic, Central America, South America – ok shorter list done the other way: Scandinavia, Canada, U.S., most of Western Europe allow full participation – – and, slavery is still alive and well in Africa and arab areas where it existed long before the Atlantic slave trade began). BHO is their pinnacle of Affirmative Action, their Emperor of Empathy – to me he is a small self-grandiose pull-back-that-curtain-to-reveal the Grating and Onerous Wizard of Odd. Pray for Mr. Romney and Mr. Ryan, their families, their teams, and for the reclamation and continuation of the greatest country on earth, The United States of America. And we thank God for Mr. Massie and his clear thinking!

      • r. woods October 5, 2012 at 10:08 pm #

        Dr. James David Manning is who your talking about. And this man knows the score, if you’d like to view the video copy and paste—Obama We Gave Him Everything – YouTube— to your browser and then click on it. I suggest you look at some of the other things this man has done, as I believe he truly has head screwed on correctly and his heart in the right place.

        • Lisa G October 5, 2012 at 11:31 pm #

          Thanks for the information that it was Dr. Manning, I have watched several of his videos and he is indeed critical of o for solid reasons. There are others who from the pulpit or other position of “leadership” are critical of o because he is not extreme enough for them, so disappointment in him can cut either way!

    • Lisa G October 5, 2012 at 7:43 pm #

      I must clarify – when I parenthesize (white) for “traditional American” it is sardonic from perspective of many black “leaders” in this country who are knee-jerk anti-anything remotely connected to doing things as anyone white would!

    With expert surgical presision, Mitt Romney exposed the MSM’s favorite Stallion as nothing more than an impotent gelding.

  12. John McClain October 5, 2012 at 4:18 pm #

    I stopped watching debates after Reagan's last, because the media never broke step with their bias, and called it a win for his opponent whose name I don't even remember. I'm glad to know it went very much like logic dictated it should, and I believe the results of these debates ought to be our common conversation as we speak with friends, neighbors, church members, all we interact with. I will watch the next two, and challenge everyone I know intending to vote for zero, to watch as well.

    I have had a similar experience many times, as my own father disciplined me 'like a board chairman disciplining poor performance of an employee'. This Nation desparately needs to see truth spoken to lies, and the lie thrown down, as we have been told about "truth to power" so many times, many actually believe there is such a thing.

    Mychal, most intelligent and discerning Americans were fully aware of what a fraud Obama was even before he entered center stage during the 2004 Democratic National Convention!

    The “Dumbocrats” have successfully conned most Americans into taking this Chicago charalatan seriously by avoiding public scrutiny into his questionable background. However, Romney finally got the chance to unmask this creature before 65 million viewers during their first televised debate pretty much in the same manner that Christine did in the classic tale “Phantom Of The Opera”!

    They’ve succeeded once again in implementing their dreadful affirmative action oriented experiment through the elevation of America’s first biracial president and arguably it’s worst!

    In the name of diversity Obama was offered complete immunity for his political inexperience through the contrived efforts of the liberal media! Never in the history of our society would a marginally talented white male politician have been afforded such an honor!

    Now his constituents are becoming even more unhinged as we approach three more debates including the very much anticipated pairing of the dynamically astute, youthful and politically savvy Paul Ryan opposite crazy “smokin uncle” Joe Biden!

    Mitt was able to perform brilliantly without much coaching because unlike Obama, the man obviously led a full and productive life while providing economic opportunities for his fellow man. How sad that there are certain members from his conservative base even those useless moderate mouthpieces on Fox News who didn’t waste any effort in providing Obama with leverage to attack him with in their next upcoming debate.

    Journalistic frauds like Bill O’Reilly, Steve Doocy, Megyn Kelly & Gretchen Carlson who keep on asking ” Why didn’t Obama mention Romney’s 47% comment”? If only these moderate talking heads would allow their views to be guided by common sense as oppose to pollitical correctness, Romney could easily glide into the presidency without a hitch!

    Maybe then would they be able to demand a public retraction from the con-man-in-chief who not that long ago insulted millions of small business owners that “governnment” was the opportunity which allowed them to produce their enterprises! Why don’t they alert Romney to address the public on Obama’s scratchy background, lack of political credentials, college records, support for illegal immigration and sodomy?

    I can’t begin to understand why they’re not as equally motivated in alerting Romney to challenge Obama’s condescending attitude towards Christianity and the shameless manner in which he insulted the residents of pennsylvania by insisting that they “naively clung on to their guns and bibles due to their collective job loses and the economic crisis”!

    Since many Americans are not able to discern a fraud up close even when he is staring directly at them, maybe they’d like to witness how foreigners are able detect such a phony.

    I’m providing the link of that video from Denmark you mentioned Mychal in your last column for the amusement of your regular readers. Obama thinks he’s so unique even before the presence of foreign diplomats! Only an extremely perceptive individual can spot a con, no matter what his/her native language is!

    • John October 5, 2012 at 1:20 pm #

      Hi renee,

      What I’ve seen so far with regards to this current president’s behavior and the media’s reaction is parallel to what I’ve grown up with in the public school system.

      My father worked in an industry that required us to move about quite a bit after I entered 5th grade, so my average stay in any one school district was about 18 months on average.

      I’ve seen a lot of examples where non-Caucasians were given more leniency than others for one reason or another. And it wasn’t just my perception – in some classes, it was just assumed by the other students that this was the norm. It was shocking and appalling to me because I was a newbie in any given system, but to the others who grew up in the area it was just something they had grown accustomed to.

      It was when we moved from a small, rural-country-area district to one of the most populated cities in America I was instantly educated in race politics – in the 5th grade. From that point forward I observed and gathered enough experiences to garner a personal opinion about race perception.

      At first I was angry with those who chose to act crazy and loud at the start of every class, who failed to turn in reports and were given 2nd, 3rd, and 4th chances to turn them in, and who weren’t chastised when doing the “pssst hey psssst, what’s the answer to question x” during tests. It was easy to make distinctions as to which race these were, since the vast majority of these were ‘minorities’.

      I quickly came to the conclusion that “the darker the classroom, the louder it’s going to be”.

      But whom did I ultimately grow to become angry at, once I gained more experiences and started dealing with the adult versions of similar situations?

      Not the minorities so much, as the educational system that I had grown up with, teaching us to be “fair” to those who wasted resources and consumed our class time and attention time and again.

      You’re probably asking, “What does this have to do with my comment?”

      When watching our current president and the media who “grade” his progress by giving us reports and their analysis, I am watching a re-run of my childhood education.

    Obama is a grade A fake–a charade. He is only comfortable in environments he controls or environments where he is fawned over and flattered as when he appears on “The View.”.

  15. fay miller October 5, 2012 at 11:38 am #

    Mr. Massie, what a different world we would have if everyone was a Mychal Massie. I think we have an awesome person running against the anointed one. I didn’t know Romney to start with, but the more I see, the more I like about him. He does not get in the gutter with the lying Democrats. I know that God is walking with him to get this country turned around and on the right track. The one that puts God first. Thank you Mr. Mssie

    Mychal massie, as usual you are right on in your commentary. Like Rosalee many friends and some family know they are going to vote for BO and absolutely refuse to read, listen, watch to any voices of reason. It seems that they are so enamored with the Pied Piper and are willing to follow him down the rosy lane to the Hinterlands of Make Believe. (Which is totally astounding, I can't understand it at all! None of the idol worshipping makes any sense.)
    HOWEVER, there is an encouraging sight. I live in Southern CA, north San Diego area and I've noticed less Obama bumper stickers, actually they are far and in between. I saw one bumper sticker that tickled me: If you voted for Obama to prove you aren't a racist now you need to vote for the other guy to make it a fact!

    • Annie Hamer October 7, 2012 at 12:16 am #

      I very much like what you said, "It seems that they are so enamored with the Pied Piper and are willing to follow him down the rosy lane to the Hinterlands of Make Believe." The Utopian Promise just "feels" so very warm and wonderful. As I taught my nieces when they were little: Think with your head; feel with your heart; keep them well balanced.

    I just read this to my mother and she said you are a genius (something I already knew). I have always sensed these things about Obama, prompting me to always refer to him as the Anti-Christ, but I could never have articulated my visceral reaction to him so clearly.

    I had truly feared that Romney would sure up channeling McCain for the debate and I could not have born watching the end of America. I told my husband, we’ll know in less than 5 minutes. Thank God, Romney the fighter showed up and there is still a chance to save our country.

    • Annie Hamer October 7, 2012 at 12:43 am #

      Your comment gets three thumbs up from me. Like many, and perhaps most, of us who read the Daily Rant, I was glued to the debate and afterwards immediately switched to MSNBC (what a glee buzz that was for me) and then other leftinista programs. I read, and watched or listened to every commentator for hours and again the next day Not a single one hit the nail on the head like Mr Massie did. Yes, they certainly provided insight but not one even came close to the most important issue–which, as we know, close only counts in horse shoes and hand grenades. While other commentators polished and lobbed their horseshoes–Mr Massie threw the hand grenade. I sent it out to all the friends and pol wonks on my list and posted it on my Facebook page. As you said, "A must read."

    there was a comment made on Fox by a guest on the Cavuto show that.
    Romney was like a board chairman who was disciplining an employee who had not performed and he was doing it in front of the entire board………
    I think his observation like yours is what it was all about.
    I am hopeful there is a repeat during Biden/Ryan debate and then later.
    when Romeny and Obama meet again.
    The American electorate NEEDS to see it.
    BUT sadly my friends who are Obama supporters all felt they did not need to watch it as they already knew who they were voting for………….
    Myopic mentality rules in the liberal camp.
