Although historically the debates have not been a significant factor; this may not be the case in this race. One huge advantage the Romney camp has during the debates is to be able to hammer home the point that the incumbants first four years were basically a loss. There has not been o whole lot of talk about "change" as the first four years were not a positive change. That really is the crux for me. I have already lived four years of change, time to give someone else a chance.
If I were in the undecided category, I would not vote for the Biden side because of his attitude.
However since I am an Independent and It seems I cannot hope for a Ron Paul win. I am stuck with Romney.
Biden was a jerk that "ebellished" quite a few facts. Ryan looked like a shy little bookwormy professor that has a hard time relating to people. He looks like he's more comfortable with books or in a lab or something. Biden seems like the type of guy that smokes cigars in the back room making shady, underhanded deals...a good 'ol boy. If I had to choose based on V.P.'s and last night's debate, I would choose Ryan.
I took a break and went on a trip to the mountains for a week and never, not one time turned on a television.
This maybe my new norm.
Governor Romney will win the debate tomorrow night because BHO can't run from his failed record and the Govenor has a record of success of reaching across party lines in Massachusetts which was 87% Democratic during his tenure. I still don't understand how people can put party, race and ideaology ahead of the fate of this nation.Especially when we have a Phony In Chief to Fire!
I too don't understand how people can put party, race and ideology ahead of the fate of this nation.
Some folks are sheep as they step up to the harness and willingly wear the blinders.
They are the problem.
JimmyMack, your eyes might be wide open but to some you appear to have the blinders on just like a plowmule.
JimmyMack my intent was not to offend you individually.
I don't understand people blindly staying a course because of party affiliation.
I am neither Democrat nor Republican.
I'm probably close to being a Libertarian but then I'm not one of them either.
I'm American and proud of that, very much so.
I've tried to express my opinions without personally offending any one blogging on this site.
Some here seem to be looking for a fight with their nasty comments about others.
Having said these things I also must add, if the shoe fits then wear it.
Take it wherever you will I will tolerate any reasonable rhetoric and will respond in kind.
Bring it on if you must.
