All that happened last night is we heard the "Bait"
part of Romney's Bait and Switch plan.
It's classic Romney.
In President Obama's closing statement at last night's debate, he seemed to make a remarkable slip. "All those things are designed to make sure that the American people, their genius, their grit, their determination, is -- is channeled and -- and they have an opportunity to succeed. And everybody's getting a fair shot. And everybody's getting a fair share," Obama said, before quickly correcting himself and adding.

"[E]verybody's doing a fair share, and everybody's playing by the same rules," he added.
The president made the statement in conjunction with defending his time in office. "You know, four years ago, I said that I'm not a perfect man and I wouldn't be a perfect president. And that's probably a promise that Governor Romney thinks I've kept. But I also promised that I'd fight every single day on behalf of the American people, the middle class, and all those who were striving to get into the middle class. I've kept that promise and if you'll vote for me, then I promise I'll fight just as hard in a second term," Obama concluded.....

Mitt Romney wants to cut government spending.
And he gleefully says this.
Yet what he's telling america is that when I'm in office I'm going to lay off a bunch of government workers.
Which will increase the unemployment rate.
Not sure how he's going to recover from that one.

I thought that Romney would come off as a bit too aggressive to some people for sure but I think that was his point; to be the take charge guy. He was definilty prepared to debate. I honostly thought Obama was gonna do much better tonight.
Romney was the "steamroller" version of 'difficult people,' in my opinion - i.e. roll all over other people to get your way. I know what you mean - everyone thought Obama would do better! My thought is to not count him out due to one debate. And I can't wait to check "factcheck.org" and the "truth-o-meter!" It will be interesting...
It's late, so I'm singing off for now...
Just have to say you claimed to be non partisan, but your posts are clearly pro-Obama. Who was the moderator? How has that person treated Republicans throughout his career? Might give you some insight.

Times are very different now, that is true. I'd still prefer Romney to be president over Obama having four more years though. There is too much mystery with Obama. The thought of Obama getting another term terrifies me for various reasons of which I won't give detail.
I honestly believe that only God can save this world, and ultimately, it doesn't really matter who gets elected. This world is going to see Hell either way. Though I still rather Romney over Obama any day.
