Presidential Debate 2012



Tonight's debate was fun to watch.  It started off fine and got more interesting as it went on.  Both candidates were calm and poised at first until the questions began to flow.  Obama was visibly nervous and on the defense after Romney shot at him facts and refuted his points.  As the debate moved on, Obama looked uncomfortable and annoyed.  His arguments were incoherent and at a few instances needed help from the moderator.  There was one point where he even said "I think we should move on to the next question."

Meanwhile, Romney tied every point back to creating jobs and linked it to real people while challenging Obama on his record these past 4 years.  Romney was clearly prepared while Obama was aloof and lost.

Moderator Jim Lehrer was horrible.  He had a difficult time controlling the time and flow of the debate allowing both Romney and Obama to talk past the 2 min limit.

On the topic of government role, Romney stated that rights come from God who is the creator and that we are all the children of the same God.  He also stressed religious freedom indirectly attacking Obama's attack on religious freedom with his policies.   


We are endowed by our creator with our rights, I believe we must maintain our commitment to religious tolerance and freedom in this country. That statement also says that we are endowed by our creator with the right to pursue happiness as we choose. I interpret that as, one, making sure that those people who are less fortunate and can't care for themselves are cared by -- by one another. We're a nation that believes that we're all children of the same god and we care for those that have difficulties, those that are elderly and have problems and challenges, those that are disabled. We care for them. - Romney 

Romney was on target in this debate leaving Obama looking for words with his constant use of non-lexical vocable use of "um" "uh."  The debate looked horrible for Obama who is known for being a good speaker. His train of thought derailed.

Even Obama supporters such as Bill Maher were disappointed in him, Maher posted on twitter:






CNN's Piers Morgan had this to tweet:




MSNBC's Rachel Maddow on her program foolishly called the debate a tie.  She must have been watching some other thing, not what the rest of the nation and world were watching.

If Romney continues to perform like this, then he will be the next POTUS.
