So who is the person who voted that Obama won? That's some serious blinders right there.
- Colonel Paul YinglingNobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.
Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.
All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
According to the NFL replacement officials, the clear winner of this first presidential debate was... Ross Perot!
I'd have to admit Romney won that one. He was very well composed and wasn't running circles around questions nearly as much as Obama did.
