Romney: More to Gain Than to Lose in Last Debate

Well, the final Presidential debate will be over in less than 24 hours.

I’m sensing a certain level of stress among some Romney supporters in the lead up to this debate. Sure, it’s human nature to feel anxious just before a big event … especially when we are so invested in Mitt’s success. But I’m not nervous one bit, and here’s why ….

Governor (soon to be “President Elect”) Romney has much more to gain than to lose in this debate. It’s Obama that has the tough job tonight. The non-incumbent challenger generally has a low-bar to clear in these debates. They only have to 1) show that they can credibly be Commander-in-Chief and 2) avoid major gaffes. Mitt has shown that he is more than capable of achieving this based on his first two debate showings.

Much of the “who won the debate?” game is about expectations. Obama was widely expected to be a superior debater/communicator, and it was a race-changing event when he lost the first debate so dramatically. This set up debate number two, where Obama had reset his bar down to the floor. As such, many observers felt that he “won” the second debate (by a much narrower margin than the 1st debate, and more on style than on actual issues according to polls). But the President’s “win” was really more of a “most improved” award … we’ve seen no bounce in the polls for him at all.

Conventional wisdom is that Obama is supposed to trounce Governor Romney tonight, since the topic is Foreign Policy. The problem for Obama, is that his supposed foreign policy superiority is already “baked into the cake” of his poll numbers/support. Obama’s problem arises from the fact that his foreign policy successes begin and end with “Bin Laden is dead.” Sure, that’s a HUGE point, but it’s sort of hard to talk about THAT for 90 minutes straight. And no voter is going to change his mind to vote for Obama on this issue. “Hey yeah, Obama got Bin Laden … I had forgotten that. I guess I’ll vote for him now.”

Even those formerly on Obama’s foreign policy team decidedly do NOT see this as a strength for him (be sure to read that scathing rebuke!).

The debate will give Mitt an opportunity to, once again, unexpectedly impress voters on the depth and breadth of his international experience and knowledge. The media have painted him as a lightweight on foreign policy, someone out of his depth. Mitt can and will highlight his substantial foreign exposure through his public, private, and religious experiences.

The wildcard issue for tonight is Banghazi … and not in a good way for Obama.


Despite the President’s higher foreign policy numbers in general, this recent Ohio poll (that was even a +8% Dem sample) showed Mitt UP 49%-47% on the question: “Do you trust Barack Obama or Mitt Romney more on the issue of Libya?” Mitt did miss an opportunity to fully expose Obama on Libya in debate #2. Don’t expect a replay of that tonight …

Benghazi TRUTH: Obama’s Naked Hubris Drives Continuing Cover-up (Powerful Video)


Please help us promote this information far and wide before Monday’s debate. (Thank You!)

Count on it: Before Monday night’s last presidential debate, the Obama administration and/or the State Department will release new information surrounding the attack in Benghazi, Libya in a desperate attempt to alter the truth: That their combined efforts for a month to cover-up the fact they could have prevented the assassination of an American ambassador and three other great Americans. And the fact they all knew on September 11th the attack was a pre-planned, sophisticated, terrorist attack. The desecration of Camp David has only just begun this weekend.

The history we are witnessing right now will go down in American legacy as far more serious than anything related to the Watergate scandals. Nixon’s web of deceit was bad. Obama’s is obscene! The stain he is leaving on the Office of President is deplorable. The intelligence community is only now beginning to expose Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton after they falsely and repeatedly blamed the intelligence community for promoting the “movie-trailer video” narrative.

We at MittRomneyCentral know that most of our viewers prefer brief videos. However, I believe the following video contains crucial information every American should see and understand. For if they were to take it all in, not one American voter would ever vote for Mr. Obama. Not one.

THANK YOU to Bret Baier for this comprehensive investigative reporting! If you wish to only watch the portion of video where the Obama administration’s deceit and cover-up began, see the minute descriptions outlined below the video.


I believe Bret Baier’s powerful investigative reporting is important to view from beginning to end. However, if your time is limited, you may want to start at one of these points below and watch the entire piece later:

  • Beginning to minute 21:55: Actual videos, photographs, interviews, and illustrations of what actually occurred at the consulate September 11th (Warning: some of the footage is graphic)
  • Minute 22:00: The Cover-Up Begins
  • Minute 29:15: October 8th, almost one month after the attack, we see Obama actually reveal his main message and reason for the cover-up. He is desperate to prove that he has vanquished terrorism altogether; that al Qaeda’s threat is waning. In fact, the threat of terrorism is advancing! Mr. Obama’s naked hubris in the face of obvious brazen deceit is nothing short of spectacular!
  • Minute 33:58: The election…The campaigns…Governor Romney calling President Obama out in front of 60+ million Americans in his courageous duty to expose the cover-up!

We must all do out best to expose President Obama’s deceit. Time is so limited now.

For those that are just getting to know Governor Romney or who have not had time to read his books or study his past deeply, you need to understand a very important fact about this man: Mitt Romney knows more about radical Islamic terrorism than any person to ever seek the presidency of the United States. I believe that when he is elected and in office, he will be the most prepared president to face the intense, growing threat of terrorism than any previous person to occupy the Oval Office. Look it up for yourself.

President Obama — “HORRIBLE FOR HIM”

We all contemplate Monday night’s debate on foreign policy. In the last three weeks, Barack Obama and Joe Biden blamed the intelligence community for “the movie trailer” narrative for a “spontaneous” attack on the Benghazi consulate. How long did you think it would take the CIA and other intelligence sources to correct the record on such a blatant lie? Did Mr. Obama really think we Americans are all so dumb as to believe such nonsense?

In one word, “yes.”

But why? An absolutely crucial element of Mr. Obama’s campaign theme is that al-Qaeda has been largely decimated and rendered ineffective. Why? Because Barack Obama killed Osama bin Laden. Following the flawed logic, Americans are to conclude the threat of radical Islamic terrorism is no more. We will therefore give all the credit to Mr. Obama by granting him four more years in The White House.

Mr. Obama: We know your game. We have seen this act before. You can go hide out at Camp David this weekend to spin another web of tales for Monday. We will never forget those who have sacrificed their lives for America.

As we all contemplate Monday’s debate and the authority granted each one of us on November 6, 2012, please watch this short video, especially at second 0.35 when Bill Clinton speaks for Mr. Obama. Bill Clinton’s shameless and disgusting revelation perfectly defines this president and his character:


“Horrible for him”? How reprehensible! But it is all the more “in character” after Mr. Obama’s unemotional and insensitive comments regarding the deaths of four great Americans on 9/11/12 as not “optimal.”

Mr. Obama’s “optimal” reality will be stark the evening of November 6th.

The Cover-up Underway by Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton is Far More Serious than the Cover-up of Nixon’s Watergate


We will never forget these four men who sacrificed everything for America.

A MUST SEE VIDEO…

I think every American should see this video. Please listen carefully to what Ambassador Bolton says here.

President Obama, Vice President Biden, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are doing everything within their sphere of authority and power to obfuscate and bury the facts surrounding the assassinations of four great Americans on September 11th in Libya. Their motives are quite simple. Their number one objective in the next three weeks is to stall the release of facts until after the election. Pure and simple. I honestly believe they couldn’t care less what the families of these courageous men feel or think. It is completely political to them.

Please watch this short video clip up to minute 4:45. I think this video clip contains more truth in one place than we saw over weeks of hearings during the Watergate cover-up and subsequent investigations. As Americans, we simply cannot allow this travesty of truth to occur on our watch. I cannot tell you how incensed I feel about these duplicitous individuals who only care about their political futures! Here are some of the highlights from the video:

  • 1:05 Bolton: “Vice President Biden really crossed the line in the debate” on this issue.
  • 1:20 Bolton: “Ambassadors are the personal representatives of the President of the United States! They cover all our agencies overseas and they are all presidential appointees.”
  • 2:44 Bolton: “Hillary Clinton’s own department was in real time communication with the consulate and knew what was going on at the consulate.” (She feigns ignorance!)
  • 4:20 Bolton: “This was a high threat mission that…Even the Red Cross had withdrawn due to the threat level…” Hillary Clinton certainly should have known what was going on at this mission well ahead of September 11th.

PLEASE watch this video and tell your friends. I strongly believe every American should see this and know how our leaders cannot be trusted any longer as they all scramble to cover-up simple truths and facts:



Here is what we know about the Libyan consulate assassinations on September 11th:

  • Messrs. Obama and Biden will never take responsibility for any failure of theirs. By default, they blame the Dept. of State and the U.S. intelligence community for security failures at the consulate. It fits their four-year pattern of deflection at every turn.
  • Five days after the attack, Ambassador Rice was adamant that the attack started as a protest to a YouTube movie trailer created last summer.
  • No intelligence expert was ever aware of a spontaneous protest, at the consulate, based on a video.
  • Ambassador Stevens and other U.S. security personnel in Libya, numerous times had requested of the Dept. of State heightened security at the consulate prior to September 11th and were denied every time.
  • Secretary of State Hillary Clinton states categorically that she had never been aware of any requests for additional security at the consulate and she blames the U.S. intelligence community.
  • Nobody wants to allow Ambassador Rice to disclose who told her to publicly report that the attacks started as a simple protest to a movie trailer.
  • COVER UP: One or more of the following entities is directly involved outright in this cover-up: 1) The White House, 2) The Dept. of State, and/or 3) the intelligence community (I seriously doubt the intelligence community is part of this cover-up and I think they will soon leak information to the press that will directly implicate 1 and 2 by way of retribution).

I honestly believe that what we are witnessing at the highest levels of the United States government is a cover-up far more serious than that of President Nixon’s Watergate and I strongly believe the facts, as they become widely known in America, will end Hillary Clinton’s chances to ever become POTUS in the future.

The men and women involved in this cover-up will do whatever they can to stall and hinder the congressional investigation until after the election.

Nobody was killed in the Watergate break-in.

Barack Obama’s Repulsive Cover-up of Libyan Terror Attacks

NOTE: The following opinion is only that of the author. This is not a Romney campaign site.

All of those that contribute to this website are volunteers; each one runs a business or makes a living as an employee. As volunteers, we have to find time to do the research and determine what we hope will be the most interesting and compelling content to present. That time for me is late at night and early morning hours. Of most interest to me is fleshing out truth in ways that will most accurately inform our readers as to why Mitt Romney is the best choice for POTUS.

Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty, Tyrone Woods

But since the assassination of four great Americans on September 11th – followed by the constant duplicitous rhetoric streaming from the Obama administration – I can scarcely think of anything else. For over two weeks, the most senior Obama spokesmen and State Department officials (not to mention President Obama himself) would have us believe these assassinations resulted from Libyans that had viewed a YouTube movie trailer! Their orchestrated efforts to present the same message, starting with Ambassador Rice on five Sunday television talk shows, was so well coordinated that it quickly became obvious to me and others that no other narrative would be acceptable to Mr. Obama. Their cover story was run for over two weeks! Even when truth, contrary to that narrative was emerging from all sides! Now, it is finally becoming obvious that a cover-up at the highest levels of the executive branch has been in full motion the entire time! Why? Because the truth would damage Mr. Obama’s chances of re-election.

Frankly, it is repulsive!

How would you feel if you had lost a son this way? How would you feel if you knew deep down that your President, by his actions, only cared about his job? As you watch this video clip, listen carefully as Sean Smith’s mother Pat was effectively patted on the head and told to “trust me” several times. How would you feel as a mother in this situation?



The following video clip most accurately portrays how infuriated my friends and I feel about the Obama administration’s callous political posturing. Congressman Trey Gowdy effectively calls out all executive branch officials involved in this terrible cover-up. Minute 4:00 is best.

Please, please, please: Every American needs to see this video and watch it beyond minute 4:00. I have now watched it four times and I get emotional every time. This is obscene!



33 years ago was the last time a United States ambassador was assassinated; that was under President Carter’s watch. As upset as I am about this cover-up, I am more angry by the knowledge that these good men had been effectively begging for heightened security for this diplomatic post for weeks and they were denied every time! To top it off, the Obama administration did nothing to secure sensitive, even classified information after the attacks!

These men of courage stood their post. Two of them left safe harbor and ran into the breach to save the lives of others. These four Americans suffered unthinkable fear and terror before they were assassinated.

I’m sorry, but there is no excuse whatsoever for this complete and utter vacuum of leadership!

Foreign Policy #ObamaIsntWorking

If President Obama did as bad as he did in the debate on domestic policy, what is going to happen when the debates turn to the topic of foreign policy?

A Campaign About…Nothing (and other thoughts)

Is Obama intentionally, in the words of Reince Priebus, or John Ransom, running a Seinfeld campaign “about nothing,” hoping to win solely on likeability? In listening to XM Sirius’ “POTUS” channel Wednesday in my car I was struck by Julie Mason’s comment that this presidential campaign has lacked serious substance. We did get a brief glimmer of hope when Mitt chose Paul Ryan, as folks seemed encouraged by the boldness of the pick and Mitt’s staking ground in the debate about the size of the Federal budget. Ms. Mason lamented that the campaigns, however, have seemed to retreat from that attempt, and that if she craves something like a debate about the proper size and role of government it must mean there’s a real deficiency in her diet, like when she craves spinach. I agree, and quickly responded with a tweet reminding her that Mitt has a proposal, just one of many not responded to in any way to my knowledge by the Obama campaign (while they focus on attacks on Mitt’s personality), to limit government spending to 20% of GDP. Meanwhile Obama ducks the traditional bi-lateral meetings surrounding the UN General Assembly in New York to be filmed on The View. The administration’s quietly stated reason? Too much room for error. So not having meetings to build international relationships and help avoid little things like war over Iran was a a political calculation. The president is likely to make a gaffe or make a promise he can’t deliver on. So he decided to just keep away from problematic stuff like doing his job so he could cultivate his celebrity image. According to Time:

Of course, meeting with world leaders when you don’t know if you’ll still have your job in the next few weeks, can be potentially awkward. It can lead to unfortunate hot-mic gaffes, of which Obama has not been immune (for example, in Seoul earlier this year he asked Russian President Dmitry Medvedev to be flexible on missile defense until after the election, when Obama would have more space to maneuver–too much diplomatic candor for the sensitive electoral season). Still, ignoring the opportunity to meet one-on-one with world leaders underlined where Obama’s attention is fixed: the campaign. And it was the election that dominated the taping of The View. That, and the inside skinny of the Obama family’s schedule.

So he seems to want to float above the fray and not engage in the discussion, just repeating the same old lines about Bain Capital and exporting jobs. On that point, if you haven’t seen it yet, read this article in the New York Post pointing out just whose money is at Bain. Hint: unions, retirement funds and academic institutions are who trusted Mitt to make money for them. Turns out corporations he helped succeed are made up of people (their investors) and the left has known it all along! (more…)

White House Losing All Credibility on Foreign Policy

Yesterday’s headlines were all over the map on this, and yet I get the impression this is viewed as a minor story by the main stream media.

Despite claims to the contrary early on, and President Obama’s reticence to use the actual words, Hillary Clinton and Jay Carney both admitted yesterday that what happened in Libya was a terrorist attack, not just a protest gone wrong. Meanwhile questions are arising about what the White House knew and when, and whether this was about a hack job of a movie at all.

CNBC asks “Did White House Lie About Libya Attacks?” The answer appears to be yes.

Here’s a link to the video of an interview the House Chair of the Homeland Security Committee, and the text of the related article:

Larry Kudlow is hearing from his beltway sources that the President may have put politics ahead of national security in the wake of the Libya attacks that killed four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens.

Kudlow, Rep. Peter King (R-NY) and other skeptics charge the administration deceived the nation when it said the attacks had not been planned in advance.

Those same skeptics say the administration via UN Ambassador Susan Rice deliberately downplayed events in Libya to preserve Obama’s image as the President who had won the war on terror by killing Osama Bin Laden.

“They sent (Susan Rice) out for political reasons,” said King on The Kudlow Report. “The Obama administration wants people to believe that the war against terror is over.”

In other words, if the White House admitted Libya was a terror attack – it would have called the campaign message into question – something Democratic strategists didn’t want to do.

Instead, the GOP says the administration shifted attention to a movie that depicted Islam’s prophet Muhammad in an unflattering light – a movie that sparked protests in Egypt – knowing that was not the catalyst.

“They wanted people to believe the violence was caused by a few malcontents,” King explained, but it was actually something much more sinister.

“They don’t want the appearance that Al Qaeda has come back but the truth is Al Qaeda has never gone away,” said King, chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security.

“I see this as nothing short of a cover up,” added Larry Kudlow.

Former United Nations Ambassador John Bolton shares the sentiment.

“The administration could have said from the beginning, ‘We don’t know all the facts, and therefore, we’re not ruling out any potential explanation,’” said Bolton in a published interview.

“But that’s not what they did. They came down in the midst of great uncertainty and said it was spontaneous. It was not terrorism.”

Now, however, as reported in the Examiner, the White House is quietly admitting that yes, it’s “self-evident” this was a terrorist attack. And they expect this change in tone to go unnoticed. As reported in the Examiner:

“You know what else is self-evident? That the Obama administration is full of liars,” Twitchy said Thursday.

“For a week, they lied to the American people and blamed a movie, condemning free speech time and time again, for the murder of four Americans in Libya and for embassy attacks across the globe,” Twitchy added.

CBS reported Thursday morning that witnesses said “there was never an anti-American protest outside of the consulate [in Benghazi, Libya]. Instead, they say, it came under planned attack. That is in direct contradiction to the administration’s account of the incident.”

The CBS report also said “that the public won’t get a detailed account of what happened until after the election.”

[emphasis added]

Here’s that CBS report:

A major question is whether the film had anything whatsoever to do with the attack, or if it was a White House distraction from the beginning.

In a Boston Herald op ed entitled “How the Truth Hurts Hence White House Avoids it,” Michael Graham says Jay Carney’s explanation of events doesn’t pass his “teenage son” test. (more…)

2007: Obama Prophesies “The Day I’m Inaugurated Muslim Hostility Will Ease” Frighteningly Ignorant!

While a presidential candidate in 2007, our now security briefing-averse President made the case for himself by confidently pronouncing he was uniquely qualified to stabilize America’s relationships in the Muslim world. Why? Because he lived in an Islamic country when growing up and his half-sister is Muslim. (Thanks to Breitbart for the video.)

DUE TO THE AUTO-START FEATURE ON THIS VIDEO, CLICK HERE TO VIEW IT.
Then-Senator Barack Obama’s bragging interview on New Hampshire Public Radio on November 21, 2007 (inked above):

The day I’m inaugurated, not only the country looks at itself differently, but the world looks at America differently … If I’m reaching out to the Muslim world they understand that I’ve lived in a Muslim country and I may be a Christian, but I also understand their point of view … My sister is half-Indonesian. I traveled there all the way through my college years. And so I’m intimately concerned with what happens in these countries and the cultures and perspective these folks have. And those are powerful tools for us to be able to reach out to the world … then I think the world will have confidence that I am listening to them and that our future and our security is tied up with our ability to work with other countries in the world that will ultimately makes us safer.

Tear gas! Molotov cocktails! Rocket propelled grenade launchers! Rocks and concrete chunks! Battering rams! Obama effigies! Bin Laden posters! Blood! Murder! Death to America! In just three days, violence and riots have spread like wildfire to a total of 20 Muslim countries spanning North Africa, through the Middle East, and into Southeast Asia.

Obama’s prognostication was frighteningly ignorant.

Main Stream Media & Middle East: Irrationally Vilify Romney to Protect Obama

Protesters rip an American flag pulled down from the U.S. embassy in Cairo as they hoist a black flag similar to an Al Qaeda banner on Sept. 11, 2012. (PHOTO – Mohammed Abu Zaid/AP)

Four Americans, including our Libyan ambassador, have been murdered by radical Islamists. Additional embassy employees have been injured. (No Marines to protect our embassy on the 11th anniversary of 9/11… Huh?) Chaos and violence continues to spread throughout the middle east; angry crowds in Tunisia, Yemen, Iraq, Oman, along with demonstrators in Egypt, continue to fill the streets. The Muslim Mafiahood Brotherhood is calling for DEATH TO AMERICA and a massive protest after prayers on Friday. Our sovereign property, American embassies, have been breached, our fences covered in graffiti, items stolen, vehicles torched, emblems torn down, and our flags are burning. Along with our Egyptian embassy, U.S. embassies in at least nine other countries are warning of further attacks and urge Americans to curtail activities in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Armenia, Burundi, Bangladesh, Kuwait, Sudan, Tunisia and Zambia.

In the midst of this mayhem, pandemonium, and visceral display of hatred for America, guess what bothers the mainstream media the most?

Mitt Romney.

He responded to the chaos.

Headlines, commentary, tweets, etc shout “How dare he?!”

Yes, it’s driving them nuts – more than the attacks themselves.

Thanks to new media, we’ve learned a nasty little secret about the traveling press corp following Romney. They coordinated ‘GOTCHA’ questions to demonize Mitt Romney for having the audacity to issue a statement on Obama’s unguarded reaction to these events. Listen to the voices of CBS reporter Jan Crawford and Ari Shapiro from NPR:

CBS REPORTER: Yeah that’s the question. I would just say do you regret your question.

UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER: Your question? Your statement?

CBS REPORTER: I mean your statement. Not even the tone, because then he can go off on…

UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER: And then if he does, if we can just follow up and say ‘but this morning your answer is continuing to sound…’ – *becomes unintelligble*

CBS REPORTER: You can’t say that..

The transcript also noted this exchange, with a man Graham said is not Shapiro:

CBS REPORTER: I’m just trying to make sure that we’re just talking about, no matter who he calls on we’re covered on the one question.

UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER: Do you stand by your statement or regret your statement?

There is more information here.

Here’s just one example of the relentless mainstream media assault on Romney (from Obama-loving CNN): Richard Williamson, Romney’s Senior Foreign Policy Adviser was interviewed by Chris Lemon yesterday (Hat tip to Matt Hadro on Newsbusters; see transcript and more here.):

Headline from the Wall Street Journal yesterday: Romney Offends the Pundits

Tuesday’s assaults on the U.S. Embassies in Benghazi and Cairo have injected foreign policy into the Presidential campaign, but suddenly the parsons of the press corps are offended by the debate. They’re upset that Mitt Romney had the gall to criticize the State Department for a statement that the White House itself disavowed.

We’re referring to the statement issued Tuesday under the headline “U.S. Embassy Condemns Religious Incitement.”

Mr. Romney reacted late Tuesday with his own statement: “I’m outraged by the attacks on American diplomatic missions in Libya and Egypt and by the death of an American consulate worker in Benghazi. It’s disgraceful that the Obama Administration’s first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks.”

The Obama Presidential campaign jumped on the remarks Wednesday as inappropriate, yet a “senior Administration official” had told the website Politico later on Tuesday night that “The statement by Embassy Cairo was not cleared by Washington and does not reflect the views of the United States government.” So the White House can walk away from its own diplomats, but Mr. Romney can’t criticize them?

As Tuesday’s events showed, pandering to Islamists who would use the video to inflame anti-American sentiment isn’t going to stop the protests.

His political faux pax was to offend a pundit class that wants to cede the foreign policy debate to Mr. Obama without thinking seriously about the trouble for America that is building in the world.

It’s appalling how the mainstream media is tripping over themselves to condemn Romney – especially BEFORE uttering a word of condemnation for the terrorists. We continue to see a shameful lock-step march to shield our call-the-shots-from-behind President. The way they’ve portrayed Romney’s words as far more important than the actual events is insane!

Yesterday, while speaking to CBS News’ 60 Minutes correspondent Steve Kroft, (an institution where Obama walks on water), Obama attempted to minimize Romney for his reaction to the Cairo embassy attack: “Governor Romney seems to have a tendency to shoot first and aim later.” Tripe! Then, with sickening photos of our battered, fallen ambassador racing across the internet and middle east foreign policy unraveling, Obama skipped out on the daily security briefing (he’s missed half of them since being elected) and sashayed off to a fundraiser in Las Vegas.

Crass – just crass.

Here’s a VIDEO timeline of events:
