Romney Won the Debate, But Will the Country Lose?

Mitt Romney’s and Barack Obama’s visions for government are more alike than different.

Last night’s presidential debate between Democratic incumbent Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney was far more substantive and wonky than most watchers would have ever predicted. More important, given Romney’s strong showing and nearly complete domination of Obama, it shows that the race between them – already tight – is only going to get tigher over the last weeks of the election season. That’s good news for the Romney camp.

For his part, Obama appeared off from the moment he started talking, invoking his anniversary and giving a shout-out to the missus in the audience. It was a forced gesture at best, seemingly calculated to draw oohs from the crowd, and it was all downhill from there. Whenever answering a question, he seemed to pile on answers and throw out phrase after phrase like a contestant from the old $25,000 Pyramid game show, desperately searching for that magic string of words that would hook the audience or flatten Romney.

And now… the rest of the story. …..

    I know he debates well. He did win. And, I DID watching Obama pee-pee’ng down his leg.

    However, and this causes sadness in my heart. I will vote for him. However, I cannot find it in my heart to feel comfortable about it. To say, “well, we’ll keep his feet to the fire” doesn’t comfort me. He won’t negate the Amnesty. He had RomneyCare the Grandfather of ObamaCare.
