Little Man--Big Man

As the debate began last night, I found myself wondering why Romney didn't nail the President about Libya. The President has misled the American public about this and a number of other issues.

As the debate continued, I began to see a striking difference between two men and two very different ideas about our country.

One was a little man, the other was a big man.


Mitt Romney was painting a big picture, President Obama was chalk drawing on a sidewalk.

Romney's responses were big, sweeping in scope--more fluent.

By about 6:45 p.m. or so, moderator Bob Schieffer started to direct questions at Romney that were specific to Romney, asking how he would pay for increased defense spending, then interrupting him before he could complete his answer, giving Obama an opportunity to attack Romney.

This is the same behavior we saw with moderator Candy Crowley in the second debate, except Schieffer is more subtle.

Romney looked presidential. Obama looked desperate.

Obama was condescending. He threw stones. Romney walked away from the little, petty stuff.

The lyrics of a song from the 1990's came to mind. Not a song I liked or an artist I liked, but some of the lyrics seemed to describe the moment.

Little Man-Big Man:

Little man, big man who came first?
What is the measure of our worth?
If there was a storm rolled in
Who'd run inside? Who'd go walking?
Little man, big man what's inside?
It's all in the places where we find our pride
If there was a soul lost by the road
Who'd pass by? Who'd take it home?
Little man big man who is who?
If there was a rock and a window pane
Who'd throw stones? Who'd walk away?

Be Vigilant. Be discerning. Be Prayerful. Be Active. Be Blessed.

  1. At the rate Romney is changing policy positions now, don't be surprised if by the election he's actually agreeing with Ahmadinejad.

    1. Romney wants to be elected, then he will be able to institute his 'real' policies- whatever they may be.

    2. He has no character or honesty at all and it doesn't seem to bother him or his supporters.

  2. Perfect description. Well said.

  3. Your thoughts are exactly what I have thought and felt each time I have seen the two men debate--Little Man-Big Man with Romney being a much "bigger man" than our president.

  4. I have had the same thoughts as I watched the debates. The back ground of both men really shows in the debate. Good analogy of chalk drawing on the sidewalk.

  5. It amazes me how the lying spirit of partisanship can so corrupt men's minds....

    I am not an Obama supporting and I will not vote for him. However, I at least have an inkling of discernment to know that not a single word that came out of Romney's mouth was true - it was all pure political doublespeak. There is not a single promise he is making that he can keep - he has no functional detailed policies but as Gary said he sure does sound grand with those lofty sweeping generalizations - and how his magic wand will just make everything all better for everyone. Yup, Satan was a great snake oil salesman in the garden - he was slick as a whistle - and his little Satanic priest Mitt Romney allows these slick demons to speak right through his mouth.

    It never ceases to amaze me as to how many who proclaim the name of Christ as Lord out of one side of their mouth so quickly turn around and pounce and speak grandiose words regarding an avowed anti-Christ.... Shame on you!!

    Sincerely
    In the Lord Jesus Christ

    Shame on all those who do so for your degradation of the precious name of Jesus by supporting His enemy!!

  7. Romney looked presidential. Obama looked petty, angry and vindictive. He attacked many times in a mean way.
    I was sad to think that Americans had raised such a person to the highest office in our land--an office that I must respect even though I do not respect the man.

    How about being being sad to think that a man who is a tool of Satan and an avowed enemy of the Lord Jesus Christ is being supported by so many "adherents".

    You are thinking in petty, earthly terms rather than in heavenly and spiritual terms.

    Truely we are in the end of the age where even the very elect are being deceived by Satan.
