Netanyahu's Rules of Debate. Or "Obama's Glass Jaw"
Netanyahu's rules of debate | Hugh Hewitt | Columnists | Washington Examiner
Or simply put: Debating our "Spock in Chief"...
Netanyahu's take-down of the president should be on the TiVo of Mitt Romney, Tim Pawlenty, Mitch Daniels, Jon Huntsman (and, yes, Rick Perry if what I have been hearing is true). One of those men will be standing opposite the president in the debates of September and October of 2012, and Netanyahu showed exactly how to respond to the prolixities and pauses of the teleprompter-dependent president.
First, let the president talk, and talk, and talk. (And talk.) His frequent rhetorical cul-de-sacs numb the minds of listeners and set up the opportunity for sharp contrasts between the definitive and the ambiguous, the purposeful and the feckless.
Second, look right at him when responding. This so unnerved President Obama that his anger and frustration was visible. Whether he brought the sense of superiority to the White House or whether it erupted there, the president does not care for people who challenge him directly, cannot seem to believe that anyone would have the temerity to do so. This is the sign of a deep insecurity, and Netanyahu used it.Obama doesn't need an "enemies list"... He sees half the country as his enemy.

But when one reviews Obama's speech and compare it to the one Bush gave on June 24, 2002, they're pretty much the same.Conservatives: "If the facts disagree with our opinion, ignore the facts -- or at least misrepresent them."

I think you are on the wrong post...Obama doesn't need an "enemies list"... He sees half the country as his enemy.

If our military performed like the White House and Congress, we'd all be speaking a foreign language.

Meh . . . I don't intend on watching any of them speak.
