I know I'm not American but I do pay a great deal of attention to American politics. Well, I don't think Obama lost his speaking abilities and he
always could do fine without a TelePrompter and I know it. For me he just was taken completely by surprise.
You may hate me for this and you can present any study based on economic liberalism, but 2008 were much more brutal on countries where the market
operates with less federal regulation. Of course it's not a perfect statement and we have exceptions, economics is far from a exact science, but that
was the general rule for this recession. Point being; the Republican golden rule of cutting rich people and big company taxes so they can reinvest the
money into the US economy is not working so well as it did with Reagan. There are dozens of more interest countries to invest right now and the
investors could not care less about patriotism or social well being. They put there money where the profit is higher.
Democrats and Republicans always disagreed when it comes to taxation and government regulations. With this economic recess peculiarities the Democrat
build a solid speech based on their economic views and there was a very visible contrast between the two candidates. Until yesterday. Romney talked
about taxing the people with higher income and taking the burden out of mid class shoulders. Romney also spoke in favor of regulations with such
conviction he sounded like a true Democrat. And that took Obama completely off guard. When Romney defended less taxes for mid class citizens, small
business, market regulation (even Dodd–Frank), the debate sounded more like a Democratic Party primary.
Now, I don't know if Romney actually means everything he said. I don't know if the Republican Party agrees with that kind of program. Even thought
Mitt clearly stud up for some Republican ideals; “The president has a view very similar to the view he had when he ran four years ago, that a bigger
government, spending more, taxing more, regulating more — if you will, trickle-down government — would work,”, he was not stubborn in denying
that 2008's can be majorly faulted as a lack of regulation free-for-fall festival.
What I do know is that Romney is a terrific debater and he used very well the element of surprise.
