Outcome of presidential debates expected
The Kansas City Star
People who watched the presidential debates Wednesday were treated to a good show.
President Barack Obama in his “trust me” blue tie defended his administration and his signature health care law. Hope and change weren’t part of his spiel in seeking a second term.
Sitting presidents don’t have the luxury of talking about loftier objectives.
Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney in his “I’m a passionate guy red tie,” however, took full advantage of his challenger position forcing Obama to justify his actions and to tell why as president he didn’t do more particularly to set the U.S. economy on a better course. Romney got to talk about his hopes and the change he wants to institute if elected.
My what a big difference fours years makes. Missed a opportunity for Obama was hammering on the 47-percenters whom Romney kissed off in an earlier speech to wealthier donors.
Maybe we will get to see that when the two meet again in their second of three presidential debates.
