I try and post after the debates are done but I have decided on this ;last one to toss out a few things for you all to chew on. Reading the news stories today we can see the polls showing a upsurge by Romney and in many now he leads. I believe the debates have caused this surge.
I was doubtful a debate would have any real affect on any race (unless there were real terrible gaffes) and the theory has always been to at least fight to a draw. Well, after the first Presidential debate we see a steady tsunami for Romney/Ryan and a possible blowout on election day. I will not count my chickens yet, but leave the American voter to his/her duty. If America wants to rid itself of massive government overreach, to me the path is clear.
Romney will be in a disadvantage tonight on the stated platform of "foreign affairs". (Clinton was a real affairs guy). Why? Because Obama is in charge of the policy and has been there for four years. Romney though has expressed the general Republican policy preferences of a strong military and a "don't screw with America" mantra spoken about all my life. I think Obama will score some points by once again mentioning the death of Osama but for the most part I think the American who has been paying attention since 2001 knows Bush deserves credit as well. It is a duty to pursue and neutralize America's enemies and the American people expect nothing less.
Romney will reiterate the lies told by Obama about Libya and his Admin mouthpieces. Obama will be protected by his stenographers in the lamestream media. But the American people will get to hear the Obama BS up close and personal tonight. I just don't think the voter will , sadly, care that much about the mess-up par excellence of Obama on this terrorist attack and murder of our Ambassador and other Americans.
Romney is a good debater and he has a real good grasp of the facts and the truth. Obama is a community organizer and his skills enable him to rile up the folks. But TV will temper Obama's words and enhance Romney's. I think the country is weary of the high unemployment and lack of jobs for themselves and their neighbors. That will trump all and I expect Romney will say that a strong economy actually is a strong foreign policy strategy.
I work in a small business environment and I have to say the government cares less about all the angst we people are experiencing. They are spewing out thousands or rules and regulations, they are sending out their storm troopers to inspect, audit and arrest Americans all across the country. There has been no letup in the governments strategy.
America are its core will get to see one more time tonight the difference between a free enterprise candidate and a socialistic type candidate. If Romney lets the American voters see the stark difference between he and Obama, and he does it without rancor, then I think the deal will be sealed for the man from Massachusetts.
