After Obama’s comatose debate performance last week, the very next day on the campaign trail, with teleprompter chugging along at full speed, wasn’t it amazing how Obama suddenly became animatedly bright-eyed and chatty? Without missing a beat or showing even a modicum of acknowledgment that he messed up royally, he continued and still continues to lie about Mitt Romney’s economic plan. Despite the fact that news outlets, and even Obama’s Deputy Campaign Manager, Stephanie Cutter, had to admit his false claim, Obama, his campaign officials, and his surrogates continue to flat-out call Romney a liar.
Following his embarrassing, cringe-worthy performance, the President’s immediate day-after-debate mocking of Governor Romney was a “na-na-na-na-na-na” display of petulant, smirky, childish egoism. (Eastwood was right about the empty chair.)
Brazen, boastful Barack…
Obama’s display reveals what a small, character-stunted man he is.
It’s astonishing to behold.
There was no lying from Romney. And, important to note, there was no post-debate gloating from Governor Romney.
Here’s a fact Obama doesn’t want you to know: Under his economic plan, taxes will increase on the middle class by $4,000. Add this to your long list of reasons why Americans absolutely cannot afford or stand four more excruciating years of Obama’s fiascoes.

After nearly four deficient, failed years, Obama is blatantly showing a bit of the worst of himself in a repugnant attempt to convince Americans he now knows what’s best for our broke, broken nation.

It was pancakes and eggs and FOX & Friends in the Prairie State this morning…
Governor Romney met with voters very early this morning at Pancakes Eggcetera in Rosemont, Illinois to rally support ahead of their delegate-rich primary next Tuesday. He spoke on jobs/economy, gasoline prices, housing market, and Obama’s 18 minute Hollywood created infomercial (*poster below):
Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney gavePresident Obama’s new campaign infomercial two thumbs down at an Illinois campaign event on Friday morning.
The “so-called documentary about President Obama is now on the Internet . And you can take a look at it. It’s about 17 or 18 minutes,” Romney said at a diner outside Chicago.
He ridiculed director Davis Guggenheim for remarking recently that he had nothing negative to say about Obama. Romney used that as a takeoff point to attack the president over gas prices, the struggling housing market and continued high unemployment.
“I’ll give you some help, Mr. Guggenheim,” Romney said. “You can make a call to some of the moms that are having a hard time paying for gas as they get their kids to and from school and practice and music lessons. And you can also talk to the people who are having a hard time getting to and from work, given the price of gasoline.”
…Romney said gasoline prices “have gone through the roof, in part because of this president’s failure to develop our energy resources.”
Later, FOX & Friends’ Alisyn Camerota, Steve Doocy, and Brian Kilmeade caught up with The Gov at the restaurant. Here’s the interview:

Using the telephone, Romney also held a half-hour townhall with Illinois Republicans. He hammered home the point that Rick Santorum is an ECONOMIC LIGHTWEIGHT :
Romney, in a half-hour telephone town hall to Illinois Republicans solicited by his campaign, warned the state’s voters to beware of Santorum.
“Sen. Santorum, for instance, is going to be campaigning in Illinois,” Romney said. “I think you’ll find he’s an economic lightweight — not because he isn’t an intelligent person but because not having ever spent any time in the private sector. He really doesn’t understand fundamentally what it takes to make this economy grow and thrive and add jobs. The economy is in my wheelhouse, it’s something I know well.”
Romney sought to paint Santorum and Gingrich as lifelong creatures of Washington while portraying himself as spending his life “in the real economy.”
“I’ve actually run things,” Romney said. “Now as you know, we elected three years ago a president who’d never run anything. And it hasn’t worked out so well. And both Speaker Gingrich and Sen. Santorum, like the current president, have not really run anything. I think it helps to have run something and understand the economy by working in the real economy.”
Leaving no media stone unturned, Romney for President released a new television ad today in Illinois titled Wrong Choice:
Rick Santorum’s weakness is the economy and his economic plan has been criticized as the worst of all the GOP candidates. Mitt Romney has proposed the boldest plan since Ronald Reagan and has the leadership experience to lead our country.
Obama’s fancy new bus rolled into Peosta, Iowa today to drop the president off on the doorstep of Northeast Iowa Community College, where he will hold a town hall meeting. The confab is really an ‘invitation only’ event. 100 hand-picked individuals will show up to hear Obama and participate in discussion groups.
Prior to Obama’s arrival in Peosta today, Don Mathis, President of the National Community Action Partnership, voiced his hope that the president will lend an ear to rural residents reeling from Obamanomics:
“It’s disproportionately affecting rural areas. This is where the food gets grown. This is where the clean air gets made,” said Mathis. “This is where life and social cohesion are important and we can’t abandon rural areas.”
Governor Romney pre-empted Obama’s arrival with an excellent video highlighting some of the good folks in Peosta, Iowa:

With his approval ratings slumping to a historical low of 39%, a wheezing economy, and a ‘downgraded’ nation, after three years, Obama does plan to put together a plan on how to boost the ‘big picture’ for America – sometime in September. Just let him mull it over in a hammock on Martha’s Vineyard for awhile…
