  •  The President Gives Romney More Rope (17+ / 0-)

    As smirky Romney faced President Obama and asked, "Didn't you say that?", with his demeanor all ready to pounce, and our cool Prez calmly said "Go right ahead". He said it twice in fact. He gave Mitt more rope to go hang himself, which Mitt did. Mitt walked forward and said something like, well, I'm glad we got that on the record....   It was a Charley Brown/Lucy football moment.

    The subsequent smack down moment came when the Prez said, check the record, and moderator chimed in (she was there in the Rose Garden) That's right, he said it was a terrorist attach!  

    •  I also need to replay this scene (12+ / 0-)

      over and over - it is so sweet - I may never get tired of it. It was like a blocked out scene in a play - he moves there - he turns around - he raises his eyebrows and challenges the president. Obama must have been saying - 'ok, come on - come on jerko'. Obama says 'please proceed' - then later 'please proceed Governor'.

      And then I repeat this over again. I don't need to get to the point where Crowley smacks him down - just the set up is very delicious.

      In fact, I need to go see that video again - right now.

        there's someone else who deeply RELISHES this particular exchange!!! It is sweetly satisfying in so many ways. ;-)
