BOOM! Romney to Obama: I’m not going to tell Putin he’ll have more flexibility

A very nice move by Romney when Obama brought up Russia:

I’m betting Obama doesn’t bring up Russia anymore.

    I’m still not sure what exactly obama meant by “…more flexibility after the election,” but I’m certain it wouldn’t bode well for America. He’s a strange and dangerous person to be in the White House.

    • proudhispanicconservative

      He wants to cut our nuclear warheads from an already mere 1500 to 300 with no concessions from Russia.

      • Army_Pilot1967

        BAD idea in my opinion. It’s one thing to reduce our nuclear weapons inventory, but not without a like reduction in Russia’s inventory. I don’t like the way obama is handling foreign policy…..or anything else for that matter.

          My dad was a three war Marine who always believed that the best defense is a good offense. Reagan understood, our enemies know it, the current occupant of the white house … not so much.

          • Army_Pilot1967

            Wow, a three war Marine…that’s quite amazing. One of my three brothers is a retired Marine, but he only made it to Vietnam, which was qute enough. Thank your father for me for his service to our nation!

            • Dukehoopsfan

              Unfortunately he passed away earlier this year but I appreciate the sentiment.

              • Army_Pilot1967

                Oh, I’m sorry. I’ll bet he had some interesting stories about the Marines, if he talked about his experiences at all. I’ll bet he lived a full life including his time in combat! Wow, he must have stayed in the Corps for a long time.

                • Dukehoopsfan

                  He was an interesting guy … I thought that the book “The Great Santini” was about our family growing up. He was a hard Recon officer for most of his thirty plus. He got out in the mid seventies when he had enough of the politics. A lot of his activities in the sixties were classified so he never discussed work. When he retired he took off the uniform and the hard persona. He said they were a set. He worked out and ran at a gym near Quantico well into his eighties. He had a sweatshirt that pretty much summed things up for him. It said “to err is human, to forgive is devine, neither of these is USMC policy”. Thanks for your service, did you fly helicopters or FAO aircraft?

                • Army_Pilot1967

                  Actually I was an aircraft maintenance officer and flew UH-1, OH-6, and OH-58 helicopters. I completed flight school in 1967, hence the screen name. Later I went to CH-47 transition, but didn’t get to fly it operationally. It was fun to fly, and I appreciated that second engine! I did one tour in Vietnam 1968-1969. I enjoyed my time in the army (26 years), it was a great life as far as I was concerned. My wife enjoyed army life as well so that made it much better for me! That’s kinda amusing about the uniform and the hard persona. My brother was much the same way. He was a helicopter pilot too…CH-53 and some others. He was a fixed-wing instructor at Pensacola for a tour as well.

          I dont know if you watched “2016 Obama’s America” all the details of his ultimate goals are there, I sincerely recommend that movie, let me know what you think once you watch it, it is very scary.

  • So far 0bama seems too well rehearsed with his retorts and speeches as answers. And he is saying “i’m glad gov. romney agrees ….” far too much. That could be the drinking game phrase of the night. hehe 😉

  • LeonidasOfSparta1957

    that was a great reminder. Obama, all evening, talked as if he had not gone and bowed to every dictator in the ME, that he had not been endorsed in his 2nd bid for the Presidency by Russia and Iran, he talked as if the facts surrounding his “apology tour” were actually lies. It was good to see Romney take the fight to him. Wish he had done so MORE.

    • jlbs

      …….and has the endorsement of Chavez and Castro!!

    • Orangeone

      But when Romney was talking about the apology tour he didn’t bring up that Obama bowed to foreign leaders. Another missed opportunity.

      • proudhispanicconservative

        Of course we wanted that, Obama gave Romney a great opening and he just stated the facts and he did it in about 49 seconds, no need for cheap shots I know Obama has stepped all over the office of the USA but it was a great move for Romney not to go low like that and show respect for what used to be before Obama a respected office.

  • Booyah!

  • Now that’s laying the hammer, no I mean sickle to comrade Obama!

    • Orangeone

      Or perhaps a bayonette?

  • This was a good shot, although I thought Romney should have made a bigger deal about how badly Libya is doing right now.

    • 3seven77

      I agree. I think Romney should have gone full throttle after Obama on that very first question when Obama said “we did everything possible” in Libya. Rommey could have said, “You did nothing. It’s known that the attack was viewed in real time at the State Department and the White House. No help of any kind was sent to the Americans who were pinned down and lost their lives there. And if there had been real leadership in Libya that consolate would not have been unprotected in the first place.”

      It was a missed opportunity. I don’t know why Romney didn’t go after him. Maybe Romney’s advisors were against that line of attack, but I think it would have put Obama off his game for the rest of the debate.

  • BlueGood

    I liked it when Romney reminded 100 Million People that “O’Bama bin Lyin” went on his “Memorable Magical Mideast Apology Tour”

    Mr. O’Bama Ben Dover

  • Nukeman60

    I’m thinking there are two little laser holes in the left side of Romney’s head, where Obama had his beady eyes focused on all night. Romney made no friends with Obama, that’s for sure. I like it.

    • Orangeone

      Me thinks Obama knows what the polls are saying and the swing states are not swinging his radical islamic way.

      • Nukeman60

        So true. The way the polls are trending will not change due to this performance tonight and Obama knows it. Matters not who says who won the debate.


    Ignats was told to not look down, as he has done….so he does this squirrely stare with the sissy pursed lips. God, I detest that weak worthless girly man. I still can’t believe he’s the president. He’s got to go. VOTE!!!!!!

  • BOOOM.. Can you say, stick that in your ear.. and on live National TV.. lol… Loved it..

    • sjmom

      So did I!

    • proudhispanicconservative

      Off topic: Just finished watching the documentary on Ronald Reagan “Rendezvous with Destiny, just thought for us Reagan patriots is great to watch at this time.

  • Amjean

    One of my favorites too!

  • SaraPFan

    Oh. I loved this moment. That was my favorite line and reminder of the night. Classic.

  • sjmom

    One of Mitt’s best moments. I was waiting for him to stick it to Obama and this is one time he answered the call.

  • Shery Hancock

    Woohoo! Loved Romney’s remarks there. Obama was dealing with Russia in regards to our getting rid of more nukes and cutting back our military. We don’t need to be flexible with Russia. They are still arming more than a few countries in the ME and they still strong-arm many of the former satellite USSR countries. We know from experience, doing humanitarian aid in Russia 5 for summers. Russians passing out of their borders into the former states are sent and kept at the back of the line on purpose. They all hate Russia and NONE of them trust Russia.

  • colliemum

    I’m watching the whole debate right now, and that remark by Romney had me actually jumping up, screaming ‘YESSSSS!’ – especially as just before that, Romney said to Obama that attacking him, Romney, wasn’t a strategy for Foreign Relations.

    I think Romney won it there and then.


    …BOOM ! ”

  • stage9

    THIS was the BEST line from Romeny of the night by far! THIS was the most damning for Obama. You could see the “crap I’m busted” look on his face after that comment.

  • kajunredbull

    Can I get a BOOM Shaka-Laka! LOL

  • kong1967

    You can tell when Romney gets pi**ed, but he comes off in much better form than Obama does. He turns to Obama and is very stern and serious, but not disrespectful. I like how he does it.

    • colliemum

      Yes – and there’s no come-back for any one, never mind Bathhouse Barry, when on the receiving end of that Romney look, coupled with a plain, factual statement.

      • hbnolikeee

        Sure there is. Barry says to defend “It’s not true”. It’s really quite an debating skill he has. When confronted say “he’s lying” and offer no basis for the remark other than Barry thinks his words are the gospel.

      • kong1967

        ….”and by the way, they noticed that you skipped Israel.” Romney did a great job of showing how Obama has been anti-Israel and pro muslim king.

  • NCHokie02

    That was my second favorite part. My first favorite part was early on when Obama tried to interrupt Romney and Mitt was just like “Exuse me!…” and then continued making his point.

    • I do the same – when somebody says: “What?? What did you say??” (hoping I will say “oh, nothing” and go away), I look him/her in the eye and slowly, syllable after syllable, repeat my statement:
      – “I – said – you-worth-less-piece- etc”. Shuts them up quickly.
      Romney was too nice to a liar, but that’s what his wife had promised to work on…..

  • Sober_Thinking

    Great line… the truth hurts.

  • DebbyX

    Obama must have a very sore jaw today. He clenches his teeth throughout the debate and nods like a bobblehead. I wish he’s just go away.
