A Postscript to the First Presidential Debate

 

By Jesse Jose

A Cup O' Kapeng Barako
 

T he debate could begin the slaying of the dragon.

 

Yes, I wrote this piece on the day of the first of the presidential debates, in Denver, Colorado ... where my son, Chris Jose, a FOX News broadcast journalist, is reporting from, on national news.  And where his wife, Jaclyn Rostie, is also reporting for ABC News in Colorado Springs.  (Of course, I have to include that information.  Wouldn't you, if you were the father of a celebrity, like my son?  And, the father-in-law of a gorgeous-looking broadcast journalist?)

 

(Editor’s Note: We apologize for the delay in publishing Mr. Jose’s column.)

 

Now ... who is the dragon and who's the slayer.  The dragon's name is BHO, as y'all know, And the slayer? Mitt, the Twit, as the Brits dubbed him, as y'all know, too, right?

 

And, as Kathleen Parker, a syndicated columnist for the Washington Post and one of my favorites, said in her column on the day of the debate: "Can Romney get under Obama's skin?  Can Obama force Romney to be ... Romneyzoid?"

 

I LMFAO when I read that.  Ms. Parker, she's really funny. And witty, too.

 

To wit, she said, "Obama comes to the ring with this understanding: He is likable but can be aloof; he is cool, but perhaps too cool for school.  He is intelligent, but strangely UNKNOWING about the ways most Americans view their country...."

 

Right on, Ms. Parker.

 

"His (Obama's) recent 'bumps in the road' comment," Ms. Parker added, "after the terrorist attack on the American consulate in Benghazi and his ODDLY SUBMISSIVE address to the United Nations thereafter comes to mind."

 

I could not have said that any better.  And, I couldn't agree more.

 

"And though he enters the fray with a quiver of negatives," Ms. Parker continued," including an UNEMPLOYMENT rate that still hovers over 8 percent, he (Obama) is nonetheless popular and, at this stage, leading Romney in battle ground states."

 

Yes, I've said that I like Mr. Obama in a couple of my columns.  But it doesn't mean that I am going to vote for him.  My wife and my two sons voted for him before, because of his LIKEABILITY, but they're saying now:

 

"NOT this time.  He has lost his appeal and likeability."

 

SIXTEEN TONS DEEPER IN DEBT: To put the reason bluntly: That's because the economy sucks and America, as that old wailing song goes, is "sixteen tons deeper in debt." 

 

All these three people, dear to me, have been hurt by the Obama economy.  Several dollars from wife's salary was taken away to give to the Obama PALAMUNINS of Washington state.  And my son, Jonathan was laid off from his work.  And my other son, Chris, saw many of his colleagues and friends lost their jobs.

 

O BAMA IS NO LEADER THE MAJORITY HOPED FOR: Ms. Parker also said that voters should know all they need to know about Obama, including the "possibility that HE ISN'T THE LEADER that a majority hoped he would be...."

 

And, that's a bulls eye!  Ms. Parker, indeed, hit it right there between between the eyes of the dragon.

 

Ms. Parker concluded in her column that "Romney's job isn't to beat Obama.  It is to win over America!" 

 

And that to me, means, as I've said: To slay the dragon!

 

WHEN ... IT DIDN'T MATTER: I used to be wordy with titles of my stories.  This will be the first time a title for my Kapeng Barako story was written in three words: "WHEN ... it didn't matter."  But there is no other way.  It's the perfect title for it. 

 

So, WEN ngarud, Manongs and Manangs, and Dear Readers, the title of this story is "When ... it didn't matter""  Not "wen," which is an Ilocano word, that means "yes."  The word "ngarud" is also an Ilocano word, but I don't exactly know what it means.  I am only a wannabe Ilocano.  Just dyoking.

 

What follows is no dyok though. It's serious, but most of all ... it's true!  It's about Barack H. Obama and the WHENS of the past four years.

 

It was sent to me by a cyberspace friend, named David.  I call him, "Brother Dave" though.  Because like me, he's also a Knight of the Knights of Columbus in AustinTexas.  He previously held the position of Grand Knight in his parish.  Like me, he was also a former warrior of America.  Like me, he's retired from the US military. Brother Dave retired from the US Coast Guard, as a Chief Warrant Officer.

 

And like me, Brother Dave's love for America is deep and true, and UNCOMPROMISING!

 

H ere's what Brother Dave sent: It's titled "WHENS...."  A note in bold letters, begins: "WHEN I got done reading this, I got short of breadth.  Looking back through the past four years, many WHENS pop up.  Read them all below to better understand where we are going as a country."

 

Here it is, Dear Readers, warts and all.  While you read, enjoy your coffee or your "tea," while I enjoy my own Cup O' Kapeng Barako.  Scroll down, please.

PS: So, did y'all watch the first presidential debate?  My take on it?  Next to Romney, Obama looks like a dressy PALAMUNIN to me, y'all know what I mean?  He definitely lost the debate.  He stuttered and sputtered, his eloquence all gone.  Distress and defeat were written all over his face.  ALREADY, he had lost the race.  But this piece is getting too long.  So, sa susunod na lang, I'll have more.  JJ
