Obama Wins Third and Final Debate With Horses and Bayonets
Round three of the presidential debates was last night. And people who went in expecting to have their asses blown off with the two candidates going at each other for a final climactic showdown were mildly disappointed.
No asses were blown off here, unfortunately.
The main take-aways from the debate: Mitt Romney doesn't know where Syria is, neither candidate talked about Cuba in a FOREIGN POLICY DEBATE, and the Internet LOVES a good meme.
Everyone mount up on their horses and grab a bayonet!
Let's recap this sucker!
- Romney wants us to forget about China and focus instead on South America
"The opportunities for us in Latin America, we just have not taken advantage of fully. As a matter of fact, Latin America's economy is almost as big as China. Latin America is huge opportunity for us. Time zone, language opportunities."
Romnon wants us to forget about them China people and instead focus on South America! Because of SPANISH! Also, TIMEZONES!
- The Cold War's been over for twenty years
"Governor, when it comes to our foreign policy, you seem to want to import the foreign policy of the 1980s, just like the social policies of the 1950s, and the economic policy of the 1920s."
Obama didn't just stop there. The president reloaded his sock full of pennies and smacked Romney in the face with, "I know you haven't been in a position to actually execute foreign policy, but every time you've offered an opinion, you've been wrong."
Case in point: In this very debate, Romney called Syria Iran's route to the sea.
Except that, no.
