Second Presidential Debate Review
The second Presidential Debate was a town hall meeting. It was a resounding win for President Obama. He came out swinging. He was focused, calm and cool. He was the Barack Obama from the campaign trail. He was everything he wasn't in the first debate. From the first question, the President was the man I voted for in 2008. I had very high expectations. The President exceeded them all. He was reinvigorated during this debate. He clearly made his base happy. I do not understand undecided voters this late in the game. I was impressed and thoroughly enjoyed watching the President last night.
Mitt Romney wasn't as prepared as he was on the first debate. He lied on the first question and continued on that road. He was rude, over talking the President. He was belligerent and childlike. He was down right disrespectful. He lied at every turn. He was ultimately fact checked on stage by the moderator Candy Crowley of CNN. And, she also politely told him to sit down and shut up. This was one of my favorite moments of the night. In closing, the President got the last word. He mentioned that 47% Romney comment, talked about his record, and closed strong. A win by all means. Can't wait to see the final debate. Three weeks until the election people. Vote 2012.
