Biden raises question of trust successfully in debate...and other reactions
The Kansas City Star
Biden was dominating in the tonight’s debate. So was Romney in the presidential debate. Apparently, dominating wins in this debate format, which I don’t like. Each person should get a set amount of time, and his microphone should be unplugged when he goes over and not turned on again until it’s his turn.
What people say and do when they think no one is listening or watching is the best reflection of their character and intent. Romney may fool some people by pretending to like teachers and others with a net worth under $100 million, but most people won’t trust him. His statement to a group of wealthy donors that 47% of the people ‘don’t take responsibility’ didn’t just come out wrong, as Ryan claimed. That’s what Romney really believes. Biden scores by bringing up what Obama didn’t.
Biden pointed out that Ryan said in public that he thinks 30% of the people are “takers.” He means it. Do you?
So Romney-Ryan want to do something big with Iran to stop them from getting nuclear weapons. But what, other than avoid going to the United Nations. What a thoroughly stupid argument to pick without having a plan what to do.
Romney-Ryan won’t reveal what deductions they’ll eliminate when they reduce tax rates 20%. They should tell us and let us do the math. Biden hit the mark with his question: Who do you trust?
After taking a half dozen different positions, Romney-Ryan have decided to be pro-life with exceptions for rape, incest and the mother’s health. But they won’t quite admit that they mean to outlaw all other abortions. It’s too slick, but it won’t matter. Who can trust they’ll even stick with this position.
Time will tell, but who will believe that Romney-Ryan actually want to save Medicare and Social Security? Florida’s electoral votes depend on the answer.
