The Results of the Second Presidential Election Debate

I am starting to see a trend in the content and focus of the debates. It happened in the first presidential election debate, the VP debate, and now the recent, second election debate. Republicans are citing facts and business-like plans for the future, and Democrats are giving us emotional comments and defenses of the last four years of economic failure. I thought that Victor Davis Hansen articulated this same thought very well in his post-debate commentary today:

Obama did not forfeit the debate as last time, and took his cue from Joe Biden in interrupting and muttering while Romney spoke, so his energy made it an entertaining night. Nevertheless, the same theme as in Denver emerged — Romney more often providing specific proposals and detailed critiques, and Obama preferring more often emoting and running more on hypotheticals, as if he were not an incumbent with a depressing record that he is obligated to defend.

I saw both Romney and Ryan do this. If we look ahead to the next four years of critical leadership for our country, do you want emotional talking points or an adult plan to focus our country back on the founding principles of enabling individuals- not taking away from them and berating their success. This is how jobs and prosperity for all are created.

 Vote for Romney/Ryan in 2012.
