Presidential Debate #2Posted: 17 October 2012
Last night our political warriors battled with each other at the Hofstra battlefield……..as usual it was all about the optics not the substance…….optics?
If you have made up your mind for whom to vote….then your candidate won the night. Makes NO difference what points were made for or against…..your political choice won the night and we can all go about with the spin.
Personally, I do not think that the town hall is the best format for a debate…it is more just throwing platitudes out there for the people to devour. If you went into the debate undecided then you came out of it with nothing but a headache. Why? You heard nothing that has not been said already in the campaigns.
I will say that Obama had a better night than in the past…..and that is not saying that he won the night……Romney looked like Romney…..neither person commanded anything on that stage…..neither man was angry……both were calm and presented their points calmly and coolly….almost to the point of indifference.
So all you Romney supporters should be pleased……likewise for all those Obama people……you heard a reiteration of points that are obscure and heard nothing that is new or was a clarification……
Maybe next time there is a town hall we could have the candidate break out into a tap routine after every point….at least then it would be entertaining….God knows these debates are anything but informative….if you cannot inform at least be entertaining..this night was neither.
Readers! Your guy won! Congrats! The voter lost this debate….once again. Let the spin….begin! (the poetry just follows from my fingers….LOL)
I will admit that I did learn one thing from this debate……I learned the this whole diatribe about the “undecideds” is hokum……the focus group of undecideds that was interviewed after the debate showed me that they had already made up their minds prior to the debate……..I have often thought that this issue was a made up issue by the media….nothing I saw or heard changes my mind on that issue……I still think that at this late point of the campaign if one is still undecided then they are the people that are confused by simple questions like “paper or plastic”.
On to the next edition of debate night in the US.
