The big question on everyone’s mind is who won tonight’s Presidential debate.
So let me answer this now before it begins. And as you can see by the posting time… I am writing this before the first answer. The President won. Why… 1. The Presidency is an institution and the President has the advantage coming into a debate. 2.) He has not told us, up and until now, how he will fix the problems in our country and today I believe he will do so since Mitt Romney will “strategically” not have the ability to counter it. Unfortunately they are now debating, so I must end this now and will be back with the results.
Wow, what a massive upset for the President. “He got spanked!” And keep in mind, I am NOT a democrat nor a big supporter of the Obama re-election campaign. So for me to start off thinking the President was going to walk away the winner tonight was based upon the general starting blocks of the debate itself.
Since the media will be covering every point discussed during the debate, I certainly do not need to rehash the entire debate, however here are my personal moments of wow.
1. Where was the President’s eyes during the debate. As Romney was speaking, I continued to see the President nodding his head as if agreeing with the statements, however he hardly ever look at the eyes of his opponent.
2. “They are suffering in this country.” Romney’s expression of the state of affairs with the unemployment and where people are at today. The Governor referred to those in Ohio and in Colorado as a way to connect with those in the critical areas for the debate.
3. Romney came through way better than anticipated. He proved to Americans that he can handle the job and understands where we are at today and where we need to be. Did he fully explain his plan? No! So he has more work to do.
The bottom line is this. The debates will be a game changer if the President fails to turn around his performance 180 degrees. This was clearly a win for Romney and potentially for those of us supporting small business owners and a turn around for this country. No matter who wins the election, tonight’s debate certainly was an eye opener for both candidates and if Obama is re-elected, I would like to think this debate gave him a moment to re-think his position with Americans across the board.
I do not plan to continue posts on the election, so for my thoughts on the October 11th VP debate…. I believe Ryan will walk away the winner. Let’s see if I have better results on the next debate. 🙂
