What Would You Like To Hear Romney Say Tonight?

I am going to name two. First, I’d like Romney to point out that Obama skipped over 60 percent of his daily intelligence briefings in the months ahead of the Libya attack, including the five days before and the day after. I’d also like him to point out that last week Big Bird got more mentions from the president than Benghazi.  

How about you?  What one or two ke…

    Are you okay Mr President ? It’s look like you just fainted . Here, don’t try to get up yet, put your head between your knees.

    Crowley ! Go get the President some water.

    Where is the Secret Service ? We are going to need a stretcher, he fainted again !

    …what the hell is Big Bird doing here ?…..

    That the financial crash was not caused by lack of regulation but from misguided social engineering that created billions in bad debt.  It was the Democrats that caused the crisis through pushing banks to issue sub-prime loans.

    Yes the budget thing, including that the President sent two budgets I think FY 2012 and 2013, which were voted on by Congress and got not one vote from either party.  If that is leading it is from way, way behind.

    Also like the Benghazi lie about the movie protest called out- the Letterman appearance, for instance, was well after the “fog of war” had cleared.  The Libyan president was leveling with us, but ours was not.

    Also (stolen idea) how about asking for an apology for all the terrible things said about Bush re Guantanamo and the Patriot Act where Obama has done the same or more so?

    Also……do you know who put the ram in the ramalamadingdong?

    “I accept Mr. Obama’s concession of the election.  Thank you, America!”

    I think Long Island is about at sea-level (which, BTW, has not lowered in the last 4 years) – can’t be the altitude.

  6. Nobody

    I want him to point to something and say that Obama didn’t build that.

  7. Justine Olawsky

    “It’s party time, chumps!”

  8. Gabriel Sullice

    How did you come to the decision that ordering the assassination, without substantive due process, of a presumed American citizen was morally justified? Second, how do you, Mr. President, reconcile that position with your initial support of holding civilian trials for terrorists in New York City? And finally, do you find yourself conflicted between either of those two positions and your decision to maintain military tribunals today the still open Guantanamo Bay prison facility?

    Edit: My positions are not related to the questions, but I would like to ask them for two reasons” to bring them to Americans’ attention and to possibly expose the President’s hypocrisy.

  9. Nobody

    More seriously: “Mr. President, why do you believe it is important to seek permission from the world to go to war, but it is not important to seek permission from Congress to do so? And how do you reconcile that behavior with Article I, which gives Congress the power to declare war?”

  10. Frederick Key

    I don’t think the candidates will be allowed to address each other directly in this one. Otherwise, I’d be rooting for: “You have sat too long for any good you have been doing. Depart, I say, and let us have done with you. In the name of God, go!”

  11. Gaius Baltar

    My name is Ozymandias, king of kings: Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!

  12. Johnny Hammerstock

    “Mr. President, I do believe that you are running for President in the wrong country…(pointing East)…Europe is that way!”

  13. La Dernière Lettre

    If Obama brings up Bin Laden, Romney must mention the Pakistani doctor who is currently in jail for helping us.

  14. Vance Richards

    Mr. Obama said that without a government bailout GM would no longer exist. I don’t think the President understands how bankruptcy works. But if you give him a second term, he just might get some first hand experience.

    Romney might also mention that while 40% of GM cars are sold outside of the US, 70% of GM’s manufacturing is done outside of the US. Would you call that “outsourcing,” Mr. President?

  16. Scott R

    I’d like:

     A) a defense of his position on the auto bailouts — since up till now he’s just changed the subject when the bailouts come up (and Ryan’s “Hey, Mitt’s a car guy!” was lame).

    B) a riff on why his policies aren’t a repeat of “what got us into this mess.”

    On both these issues, voters don’t need brilliance — just a little something to rationalize in their own heads that Mitt’s got an answer for each. So far, they’ve been given almost nothing.

  17. Sweet and Low

    I might be a bad example.

  18. Leigh

    Largely echoing everyone else:

    1) Anything about Obamacare.

    2) The budget, or lack thereof.

    3) Why Romney isn’t Bush.

  19. Finster

    Why is it that the Clinton’s are the only one’s responsible for keeping your campaign alive ?
