I think I understand why many Obama supporters are unhappy with his debate performance and why this race will be much closer than most would like it.
Okay I'll admit I didn't see the entire debate as it happened live, I got home late to only catch the ending and I had other distractions like Obama's bears beating the lions in football, luckily I didn't spend much time watching that game either ~ only wasted minutes out of my life.
But when I scanned the channels and watched the replay and how certain news media brought their bias into showing only certain clips of it and than stopping so their people could bash and attack a certain candidate was rather disturbing if not the new normal.
Surprisingly when I watched fox news they actually were much more balanced and fair compared to the trash I witnessed on msnbc ~ omg who is in charge of running that ?
I was impressed with Fox news actually speaking with the Obama caimpaign persons in a respectable and fair way, I witnessed that Greta lady speaking with some other important woman of the Obama caimpaign and unlike msnbc, it was a fair and respectable discussion of issues and the election.
When I watched cnbc, I saw that they were also fair and had people from the democratic party on to support the Potus and cheer for their side. Also despite what I've heard of some claiming they only support the conservative side, they called it how they saw it and even were rather critical of Romney ~ some suggesting that maybe he wasn't political enough and didn't go for the kill.
When I watched msnbc it was like a competition among various democrat lovers who fought among themselves as to who could bash Romney's performance and character better. Msnbc was extremely disapointing and pathetic and based upon internal fears that Romney actually seems like the more presidential and better suited candidate it's not as surprising and maybe I shouldn't be so shocked and disapointed, but I have to call it like I see it.
According to the facts, during all three presidential debates and I believe the vice pres debate as well but don't sue me if I'm wrong on that one... the incumbent party ~ Potus party had more speaking time in all the debates, if I remember correctly Obama had at least one more minute if not more time than what Romney had during the last debate.
Yet from my good friend A WAll LE and many others ~ the perception constantly was that somehow Romney controlled the time and spoke more and more poignant, that somehow he made Obama shut down and won most of the talking points.
Based upon what I'm reading and feeling you would have thought that some how they gave Romney twice as much speaking time ?
Based upon the Democratic own criticism and talking points from many so called top DEms like Gore ? Grandholm ? Obama was killed in the first and most important debate ! that he was more aggressive and won the second debate by attacking and acting like a real politician in the second debate by using the woman moderator to refute the truth about what he really said concerning the attacks in Libya. Finally in the third and final debate, Obama got off his unpresidential like cheap shots suggesting that maybe Romney was unaware we have boats that go under water without sailors having to hold their breathe and that the bayonet is less in demand ? although from my understanding still an effective killing weapon ? still used by marines.
It's not surprising that many get the impression that somehow Romney is way more closer and actually has a good shot at ensuring the Obama becomes another Jimmy Carter an one timer.
Attacking your opponent and down playing what you have accomplished during your first term is not perhaps the best strategy and I like what Romney said about Obama not being able to kill his way out of his lack of actually having an effective foreign policy if he even has one thats not about apologizing about anything and everything.
Attacking Romney is not a foreign policy ? what was the Potus thinking ? it's no wonder many got the impression that somehow Romney actually killed the Potus in the third debate and that somehow got him to shut up and just listen as he used up all the time, when in reality Obama had more time but as always spoke fewer and less effective words, unless you consider cheap shots and you are a liar ~ flat out saying that if the other candidate said the sky is actually a blue like color completely lying as any democrat knows its whatever color the Potus says it is.... lol...
I could be wrong, but to re-elect the Potus his biggest caimpaign pledge is he will keep the other guy out ? he will increase taxes ? he will borrow & spend more money to prop and hire more teachers ?
Haven't we already done this during his first term ? didn't we borrow and spend close to an extra trillion dollars that was suppose to heal the economy, reduce unemployment to 5.4%, and support jobs for everyone ?
Instead what did we get ? a more divided country with class war-fare. Temporary boosts in selective jobs such as education that simply drove up costs for students all the while squandering assets that have reduced the number of potential jobs available to them when they graduate.
Ask yourself this... how is it that Biden was able to play college football ? how was it that he was healthy enough and vigorous enough, yet when it came to him being selected and chosen to head to vietnaum ? he suddenly had medical problems that didn't allow him to go ? A draft dodging scum bag politician who seems more healthy than his much younger Potus.
I guess the truth doesn't matter.
Vote who you believe will lead as how you see it.
The choice seems clear, but will it even matter ?
