While we’re feeling just a bit more confident about the outcome of the presidential election on Nov. 6, we still strongly believe Republican challenger Mitt Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts, has squandered an opportunity to blow up incumbent President Obama’s oft-repeated stump speech that goes like this: “We can’t go back to the failed policies of the past.” Actually, we agree wholeheartedly with that but not in the way of which Obama would approve. You see, we believe our president has become the new George W. Bush, doubling down on failed policies that simply don’t work. In other words, we fervently believe Romney should say that he agrees with the president in that we should not go back to the failed policies of the past. Those would be Obama’s own policies, if you were wondering.

Musings from the third presidential debate: Did it strike anyone else that Obama seemed edgy and highly agitated, while Romney seemed more “presidential?” … Debate go-between Bob Schieffer of CBS News was the best of the three moderators in this series. And he stayed awake! Our opinion: Candy Crowley needs not apply again. Jim Lehrer did a mostly credible job. Meanwhile, we’d vote for Ann Coulter, but the debate commission wouldn’t like her. At all. She’s not part of the liberal mainstream media. And she’s funny!
