Like a fireballer smelling strikeouts, Romney fanned Obama time after time while Obama did his best Red Sox imitation looking bewildered and disinterested.
Romney did exactly what he needed to do. He spoke clearly, directly, took on each issue one at a time and had unapologetic conservative based principled answers for each of Obama’s platitudes.
After than Obama was bailing on virtually every pitch culminating with Romeny hitting the outside corner when Mitt explained that we cannot tax ourselves out of this debt. He dismissed Obama’s definition of revenues as only tax increases by explaining that revenues will increase as taxes and regulation are lowered on businesses and job creators. That was the perfect pitch Mitt.
Margaret Thatcher, Ronald Reagan, Adam Smith and James Madison would be proud.
Like Nolan Ryan, Bob Gibson or Sandy Koufax on his game, Romney challenged Obama, bringing the heat. No curveballs, no sliders or change ups from this Mitt; and certainly no screwballs.
There are two debates left. Let’s see if Romney can break Johnny Vander Meer’s record and throw three no hitters in a row.
