Posted on 10/17/2012 8:35:46 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
Last night our president was articulate and forceful in sharp contrast to his performance in the first presidential debate. He stated his beliefs. He defended his record. He told America where he wanted to take the nation in his second term.
And he explained where Romney wanted to take us.
For example: Romney says hes got a five-point plan. Governor Romney doesnt have a five-point plan; he has a one-point plan. And that plan is to make sure that folks at the top play by a different set of rules. Thats been his philosophy in the private sector; thats been his philosophy as governor; thats been his philosophy as a presidential candidate. You can make a lot of money and pay lower tax rates than somebody who makes a lot less. You can ship jobs overseas and get tax breaks for it. You can invest in a company, bankrupt it, lay off the workers, strip away their pensions, and you still make money.
Governor Romney was on 60 Minutes just two weeks ago, and he was asked, is it fair for somebody like you, making $20 million a year, to pay a lower tax rate than a nurse or a bus driver, somebody making $50,000 a year? And he said, yes, I think thats fair. Not only that, he said, I think thats what grows the economy. Well, I fundamentally disagree with that.
Obama told voters what Romneys plan was for women (take away their freedom of choice), and for Hispanics (allow police to stop them and demand proof of citizenship, as in the Arizona law thats his [Romneys] policy, and its bad policy.)
He took responsibility for the security lapse in Libya, but made sure Americans understood the danger

Hey Robert — that’s not “explaining” — that’s just cheap unsupported rhetoric.
Same old failed same old from the Kenyan Marxist.
Has any lib media outlet dared to post the headline “The Comeback Kid” yet?
agressive, petulant, and annoying may overcome the opponent and “win” the debate- but still not get him any more votes
When did the dwarf start writing for the Onion?
I regret to inform you, but he's not dead yet.
Obama is ‘back’ all right .... sitting in the back of the bus as opposed to standing on the street corner, having missed the bus totally in the first debate.
I must have been watching a different debate because I saw a challenger who was sharp and concise with his answers and I saw a champion who was still slow to react and whose sole response to many rebuttals was “Romney’s answer is completely untrue.”
By about the middle of the debate, I said to myself, “Obama is toast.” I think Romney’s slam on Obama not passing an immigration bill when Democrats could have passed ANYTHING was a strong bodyblow!
BO did NOT defend his record. He can’t defend the decrease in median family income, high food and gas prices, and 23,000,000 million unemployed. He attacked Romney about the income he has earned.
Obama’s is not back from anywhere. He’s still stuck on his class warfare argument. Hey Reich..... why don’t you write a check to the IRS for 75% of your income if it makes you feel better. I swear, if obama gets re-elected I hope every one of these SOB’s lose every penny they own along with their multi million dollar mansions. Forclose on rich liberals — now that would be fun to watch.
