Obama vs Romney ...Title Fight

What if it were a Boxing Match?

Romney vs Obama from the judges perspective

If you look at the 3 Presidential Debates as a 15 round boxing match (yes I am that old and I can remember 15 round boxing matches) you might come away with a slightly changed perspective.

Denver::Round 1 :: The two fighters feel each other out but Romney is more the aggressor Romney wins round 10-9

Round 2:: Obama's footwork is slow. Obama immediately backpedals on last fur years. Romney begins to hit him consistently with jabs. Romney wins round 10-8

Round 3:: Obama looks like he did not warm up properly. Romney beginning to hit him with combinations. Obama hangs in and try to counter. Romney lands too mnay combo's and the champ seems dazed. Romney wins round 10-8

Round 4:: Obama hits Romney with (Big Bird) Punch looked worse than it was. Obam scoring and moving slightly better. Obama wins round 10-9

Round 5:: Obama has not yet even broken a sweat and it is costing him. Romney lands 2 hay-makers and backs the champ up.. Romney wins round 10-8Hofstra::

Round 6:: Stalemate round. Both fighters dance too much and throw too few punches. Tough to pick a winner. Very little action Obama wins Round 10-9

Round 7:: Champ and the challenger circle in the center of the ring aqnd then begin going toe to toe in the best round of the fight. Both Romney and Obama land big blows but it is Romney who eventually stuns the champ. Obama backs up and Romney continues to score Romney wins round 10-9

Round 8:: Romney smells blood in the water and goes for the kill(Benghazi). Obama clearly on the ropes in complete defense mode. Romney about to land monster uppercut when referee Candy Crowley steps in and claims and unwarranted fowl against Romney. She takes 1 point away for not having his gloves tied properly. Romney's corner is irate. Obama is given time to recover. Romney wins round 10-9

Round 9:: Obama sensing his title may be slipping away begins to be the agresor. The crowd gets behind him. The pack house at Hofstra all leans left. Obama wins round 10-9

Round 10:: Obamas best round of the fight so far. He lands 47 jabs and has the challenger back-peddling. Romney ties to come back towards the end of the frame but the timer buzzes. Obama wins round 10-8Florida

Round 11:: Snoozefest. A dance between friends. Maybe both fighters are exhausted but round 11 comes and goes without fanfare. Obama wins round 10-9

Round 12:: Obama and Romney circle each other again with little action. Obama throws a few more jabs. No blood spilled here. Obama wins round 10-9

Round 13:: Romney gets a second wind and begins to pepper the champ with right and left. Obama the skilled defensive fighter does well to cover up. Romney wins round 10-9

Round 14:: Obama now can see the finish line and after smelling salts or something he is out chasing Romney around the ring. No real damage but he is throwing more punches. The crowd again seems to favor the champ. Obama wins round 10-9

Round 15:: Fight seems totally up for grabs. Everyone with a alternate opinion. Romney comes out quick but his punches have lost some zip. Obama getting hit but in no danger here of being knocked out. Obama counters with some body blows to try to bring the challenger down. Neither fighter has enough left in the tank to hurt the other Obama wins round 10-9

JUDGES SCORECARD::::Romney 141 Obama 140

The election is not a fight. It's real, and the outcome can deleteriously affect your future. Eastern Connecticut, vote your pocket book. Since reassessment two years ago in 2010, property values based on actual sales data have decreased 5% per year. If your home was worth $200,000 in 2010, it could now be worth as much as $180,500 in 2012. In addition to this, both of Eastern Connecticut's casinos are downsizing their employee staff. Pfizer has left New London and is in the process of leaving Groton. In the third debate, or unfiltered discussion, Romney clearly stated that his administration would move to help make a 300 ship navy. General Dynamics and the U.S. Sub base remain at present, as Eastern Connecticut's two strongest employers. Obama wants to cut the military. Does anyone remember the military base closing, where the Groton base was one of the candidates for closure? With the closing the Navy base in Groton, and downsizing of General Dynamics activities, there would be a mass exodus from Eastern Connecticut, and value of your property could only be sold for pennies on the dollar. Vote your pocket book, while its still your pocket book.

Wake up, Obama wants to cut defense spending, ---DEFENSE CONTRACTORS LIKE HALLIBURTON THAT RAPE US, not our military, read between the lines. Most of our military in the ME are only there to protect Halliburton, Bechtel, Brown&Root, Bush Inc, KBR etc etc, THEY ARE NOT FIGHTING FOR OUR FREEDOM, they may think they are but they are being used and that to me is a crime and does not support the troops.....it endangers them for the profit of a few.
Robin Hood November 02, 2012 at 01:03 PM
So lets look at the latest on Robme, just when you thought this slime couldn't get any slimier--- http://www.examiner.com/article/mitt-romney-rented-church-s-tax-exemption-to-dodge-paying-taxes-for-15-years report by Bloomberg.com found that Mitt Romney set up a "unitrust" in 1996 which allowed him to defer paying his own taxes for at least 15 years. The unitrust was constructed to grant individuals the ability to defer capital gains taxes on any profit they earn from the sale of assets through charitable means. Essentially this allowed an individual to be able to receive yearly cash payments for the profit from their gains, while paying zero in taxes on said profit. The report indicates that the fund Romney used as a front formerly contained $750,000 in 2001, but as of 2011 only contains $421,203. As Mitt Romney is worth well over the estimated $250 million, this single trust represents only a fraction of the known financial manipulations that are used in his daily financial affairs. He is part of the reason we are in a Depression, at Bain he wrote the book on buying companies, shipping the jobs out and profiting. Guys like Robme are not American or Patriotic, they are only in it for themselves. Bloomberg and Colin Powell are backing Obama because they too feel Robme would not help us and they are right.
Robin Hood November 02, 2012 at 04:10 PM
Why is it Republicans have such a selective memory?? I mean wow, you really just blank things that happened in your lifetime OUT just to fit your beliefs. You claim Obama will close the sub base and GD/EB, but there is no statement to that effect, he will look for actual waste like No Bid Contracts to Halliburton, allow me to refresh your memories. After Ct voted agaisnt W in 2000 he had Rumsfeld remove our fighter jets from Bradley, executive order and a sign of retaliation for not voting for him. Then when we didn't vote for him in 2004 he had Rumsfeld send and order to close Groton and move it, now I worked there and I can tell you that you cannot move Groton, it has many trainers and sub support that simply cannot be moved, they would have to be destroyed and built new elsewhere which would have cost hundreds of billions (but repubs are about saving money, right?). This was not a " we"re going to look for logical waste and remove it" this was just an arbitrary executive order based on retaliation for not backing the regime and it was signed and done, DEMOCRATS had to fight tooth and nail to stop the closure of Groton, which would have been a military blunder, another one by W and crew, having all of our subs and other divisions in one central place is stupid, it gives our enemies ONE TARGET. Then it was Dems who had to fight W and Rumsfeld to get better care for our troops at the VA's around the nation. Start paying attention and keep track.

Obama had three years and ten months to get rid of Halliburton,two of those years he could have done it without any threat of opposition. Why did he not do it?
Joel November 02, 2012 at 04:44 PM
Robin Hood... Read between the lines? Yeah, right...

Obamas proposed budget cuts 900 Billion from FEMA
AJC November 02, 2012 at 04:45 PM
That is pretty much what I thought. The man promised us so much on the domestic arena and delivered very little other than what he likes to hear called "Obamacare" yet it was totally cobbled together by Nancy Pelosi and company. He did kill Bin Laden,but that like most of his policy in the war arena is just an extension of Bush's policies. I'm sorry. I like many had very high hopes for Barack Obama,but I now find him completely inept. I need a different sort of change to stay in business after 43 years and so does every single other small business owner I know..
Joel November 02, 2012 at 04:46 PM
Obama on smaller Navy: "Well Governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets..." yeah, read between the lines!

Impeach Obama for Culpable Negligence. Check out the latest from Fox News national security correspondent Jennifer Griffin had breaking news tonight regarding the attack on the United States consulate in Libya. She reported that top administration officials decided on the night of September 11th, 2012 after the attack had already begun, not to call together the Counterterrorism Security Group (CSG). CSG is an interagency group that specializes in both hostage situations and any terror attack on U.S. interests. That decision, according to senior military and intelligence officials, may have stymied some of the response to the attack. According to senior military officials, the administration also did not deploy the interagency team made up of Department of Defense, FBI, CIA and State Department: the Foreign Emergency Support Team (FEST). It was decided that FEST was not to be sent to coordinate an on-the-ground response and help facilitate the FBI’s interests into Benghazi. It took 24 days for the FBI team in Libya to gain access to the compound.

Here is a snapshot of Obama's success from four weeks ago: On Friday morning the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) released its September jobs report, which indicated the (U-3) unemployment rate fell last month to 7.8%, down from 8.1% in August, as non-farm payrolls added 114,000 jobs.  The 7.8% figure reflects the percentage of the total workforce who are unemployed and are actively looking for work. This figure does not include unemployed members of the workforce who are not actively looking for work; nor does it factor in workers with part-time jobs who are seeking full-time employment. When these workers are included, the (U-6) un/underemployment rate for September remained at 14.7% as it had been in August.  The report came less than 48 hours after President Obama turned in a lackluster performance against Republican rival Mitt Romney, who has criticized Obama for presiding over a sluggish recovery with unemployment above 8%.

Bloomberg's an absolute idiot and Powell doesn't want to labeled a race traitor. Madonna, Jay-Z, Sarah Jessica Parker, Eva Longoria, CHINA and the media are also backing Obama..... Need I say anymore???
William November 03, 2012 at 05:14 AM
wtfdrez- While nobody's endorsment sways my decisions I am wondering why you think there is a problem with all of these people backing Obama. I think you do need to say more. The one thing Romney has running with is that he is a big business man and he knows what it takes to turn the country around. Well if you are looking for a big business man how can you look past Bloomberg. He has been way more successful than Romney when it comes to business acumen. Jay-Z though not my taste has also become a very successful person in business and not just entertainment. Are you saying that every black person that votes for Obama is doing so just because they don't want to be labeled a "race traitor"? There is absolutely no way a former General and Secretary of State could use the knowledge he has obtained throughout his lifetime to decide that maybe electing someone that claims China, Russia and every other country under the sun is somehow our biggest threat, that maybe they probably aren't the right type of person to be the head of a country that has to deal with other countries on a daily basis?
William November 03, 2012 at 05:15 AM
Jim- Can you link me a copy of the proposed budget? I am interested in reading it.
William November 03, 2012 at 05:27 AM
Please correct me if I am wrong. You voted for Obama because you didn't like Bush but now Obama was too much like Bush so you are going to vote for Bush+. Obama did over promise and under deliver and has disappointed many people. Though I have seen Romney promise everything to everyone even when they conflict with one another. He has said he will lower everyone's taxes, not cut any of the programs that everyone likes, and he is going to lower the budget. Only two of those three can ever be done at once. So he is going to be breaking more promises that anyone you've seen. He has also promised to increase the military budget by two trillion dollars which is more than most countries spend combined. That is on top of the 1.5 trillion we are already spending which is higher than the top fifteen other countries combined. Most of which are our allies. I am not exactly sure what Romney plans on doing to help small business owners such as yourself since he hasn't told us. He can't give us specifics on anything yet because he has to win before he can decide which promises he can afford to break. Whoever wins I hope for the best for you and your business along with everyone else.
William November 03, 2012 at 05:36 AM
What he is saying is that just because we have less of something doesn't mean that we are less effective. http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2012/jan/18/mitt-romney/mitt-romney-says-us-navy-smallest-1917-air-force-s/ We have more coverage now with two carrier groups than we had with our entire navy in 1917 (the year Romney gets his numbers from ) and we have 11 carrier groups. We also have unmanned aerial vehicles which can do the job of entire companies of soldiers instead of putting boots on the ground and risking their lives. We build smarter now not larger.
Sherri Rowe November 03, 2012 at 06:05 AM
After the storm, I hope that all area residents are safe and recovering. This is the time to question the nay-Sayers regarding climate change. Just say, for instance they are wrong. Do we have any doubt that Mother Earth and the environment is ultimately in charge? Mining, fracking, pollution, etc. Why are we not more focused on the health of our children and the quality of our air and clean water? I think we should all consider this as we go to the polls to vote for the candidate who will continue to harness the wind and create jobs utilizing alternate energy sources which will not wreck our planet, please vote responsibly, and please vote. Remember, the rest of the world continues to watch what the USA does, and we need to set a goal for the health of this planet.
William November 03, 2012 at 06:40 AM
I am sorry but this is total garbage. You can say Obama and the administration screwed up on who called what an act of terror or not etc. What you can not do is make up trash about how the President of the United States purposely got an Ambassador and other government employees killed. First of all even the specialists that aren't actually paid by your precious Fox News that were brought on screen did not agree with this and you wont find anyone that isn't paid by Fox news that agrees. You don't just cover something like this up. If something like this happened every single person would be turning on Obama. You think every single person that would have had knowledge of this is somehow a Democrat and actually a fan of Obama in the first place? And if there was someone with knowledge on something like this they wouldn't be some anonymous source to some two bit "security expert" on Fox News. This would be shouted from the rooftops everywhere by every one of them. If you think Fox is the only station in the world that would run with a story like this then they have truly brainwashed you. You think soldiers would be quiet if the president ordered them not to go in and to just let them get killed? You think they would even listen to that order no matter who gave it? And why in the world would the President do that. What could you possibly conceive he could gain from doing so. Nothing. He has absolutely nothing to gain and would have everything (including his life) to lose.
William November 03, 2012 at 07:02 AM
First of all we don't need a 300 ship navy. Because of the advanced technology we have we can cover the entire world with four carrier groups of which we have eleven. Even forgetting the technology advancements we have had a 10% increase in ships that what we had under Bush and we currently have 282 ships. Please don't act like Obama is also somehow magically responsible for real estate prices being bad. You can say that he hasn't done enough to help increase them but that's about it. U.S. real estate prices peaked in 2006 and have been free falling since. The real estate market is what caused the entire economic crash that we had in 2008 before Obama was even elected. If you are worried about your home value you should worry more about state and local policies which will have more affect on our specific market. What we need to do is stop making our local economies so reliant on so few businesses. If everything have is reliant on the casinos, EB, and Pfizer then eventually things are inevitably going to go wrong. You need to have a bigger and better smaller business economy so you can better deal with fluctuations.

I have had the distinct privilege of working with the elderly for approximately 20years and cannot imagine any changes that Gov. Romney will be implementing which would assist them when they should be enjoying, yes and dying, with dignity. Plans for privatizing social security will not only affect those clients but those of us that have been paying into the system for most of our careers, not to mention what awaits our young. I have thankfully been able to insure my young men who cannot provide for themselves during college thanks to our president. Old or young, our president has helped us on each end but not getting enough help from the middle. Please encourage our young people to vote and exercise this right, our young have a defeatist attitude toward politics, as they don't want to get involved or don't think they'll make a difference. It's going to be their world and we have to stop screwing it up.

Michael Pepin November 03, 2012 at 12:27 PM
First of all, the president (whoever it is) CANNOT say which base is going or staying. That is the job of the BRAC committee. I'm a retired US Navy Submariner and spent most of my career in Groton. Since BRAC started, the Subase has been suggested EACH round and the light has been seen that it is in the best interests of everyone to keep it. I was an aide to the CO of the Charleston, SC base (RADM Oden) and was present at many of the BRAC discussions that eventually closed that base. They didn't tear down any of the buildings BUT they did move the commands -- both ashore and afloat. So, saying that they can't move the Groton Subase is false. Boats can be moved easily - it happens all the time. It would be difficult to move the physical trainers, but it could be done. The worst part of losing the Groton Subase would be the impact on the local economy. Groton, and the surrounding areas, rely on the subase and EB for a great amount of of their revenue and employment base. Bottom line. However, having a president in office who is not looking to cut the military (more than it already has been) would be a great benefit to both the military and our local economy. Just saying...

No-Bama ! We tried Obama's policies and we are NOT better off now than you were 4 yrs ago.As were seeing in NJ, NY, & PA, America runs on energy. Since Obama began, gas prices have increased from an avg of $1.89 he inherited, to the current $3.91, a 111 percent increase. O's energy policies have affected the price of oil. Making war on coal, cutting private drilling leases by two-thirds, wasting billions on unproven alternative energy sources, and refusing to approve the Keystone Pipeline are just a few of the ways Obama enabled oil producers to think it's alright to raise their prices. With the bailouts and QE 1,2 & 3, Obama's national debt now stands at $16 trillion and climbing. Worse yet, President Obama seems to think that he can borrow and spend our country out of debt. If re-elected he will borrow more and spend more but will not reduce the debt. Just think the next generation will have to pay China for Obama's folly! What will we sell to pay off China? Natural resources on public lands? Let's remember family income under the previous administration reached a national average of $54,962. Under Obama it decreased to $50,054, a reduction of $4,908 per family, while taxes, food, gas, electricity, and heating fuel have increased. When Obama took office there were 39.3 Americans living in poverty. Under Obama that number increased to 46.2 million, or an increase of 6.9 million. If you vote for Obama, you will enable this down-ward spiral will continue.
REVMAN November 03, 2012 at 09:15 PM
Bloomberg was a Democrat turned republican then independant(to get elected) and now is a multi billionare(Romney rich but not that rich) turned IDIOT and Colin Powell is BLACK so quoting those two are kind of funny.I am not better off than I was 4 years ago not by a long shot,but another 4 years og Obama will just about distroy our economy and I will be the first one to say I TOLD YOU SO.
REVMAN November 03, 2012 at 09:35 PM
Sherri --Under Obama no social security raises for 2 year first ever in 75 years ,but this year is a 1.7% raise the lowest in 30 years,food prices are up,gas up,fuel oil,taxes are up prescriptions drugs are up.And yes I am elderly.He is not going change S.S. for the elderly only the younger gen who WILL not ever see S.S. and one of the reasons(plus it it going bankrupt) is the 2% not being put into it for going on 3 years which cost the younger gen thousands upon retirement.The young people are to busy to vote because all I ever see them do is walk into me in stores while they'er texting.
