This is just my humble opinion on the 2nd US Presidential debate last night. Here are 3 things I learned.
1. Obama did MUCH better than the first debate. He actually showed up and was breathing. On Style and Body Language I give Romney a slight edge. I can’t say he dominated Obama, Obama wasn’t bad either and actually had some backbone. But Obama did looked to me as someone who was caught sticking his hand in a cookie jar.
Credit to him and his team, he did came out very aggressive specially early on in the debate.
2. On substance I feel that Romney Won. He had one particular answer where he listed off the Failures of the Obama Administration for 2 – 3 minutes and I thought that was pretty devastating. He also confronted Obama on oil drilling and caught him in a lie.
And he came up with a 5 point plan for his administration. Whereas, Obama relied on presenting the status quo as good enough for the next 4 years. WEAK.
Not good enough though. But is just me.
3.Romney’s most devastating blow COULD have been the (Libya) crisis if not for the blocked by Candy Crowley the moderator. But Romney could have press on that more. But he did made his point by asking Obama to confirm his statement. But nonetheless a missed opportunity.
I thought the moderator was doing a pretty good job of being impartial until she slipped. She tried to protect Obama on Libya but later admitted she was wrong and Romney was right. Bull.
I know I said 3 things, but I could not help but say this.
4. We need a better moderator in the third. Perhaps a Rush Limbaugh maybe?
I am looking forward to the third debate. Perhaps this time we will get to decide more clearly who is better to take the reign of the world’s largest and most influential organization.
What do you think? Did Obama dominated Romney to even the score as some suggested? Or did Romney made a convincing move as to build his lead from the first debate?
I can’t wait to hear your comments!
