Been super busy with work and haven’t had any time for extracurricular online activities like blogging, tweeting, or scouring my Facebook feed. But I did have a chance to watch the presidential debate. Wow. I was surprisingly impressed by Romney and sorely disappointed by Obama. Mr. President, how do you fail to look at your opponent during the whole friggin debate? Unbelievable how poor Obama’s performance was, both in action and in content. He failed! If his preparation for the debate is any indication of his fervor to maintain the presidency, then he deserves to lose. I was so horrified by his performance that I actually no longer care who wins the election. We are choosing between the better of the worst.
Given what happened, I was shocked at the dead silence concerning the topic among my online network. Why is that the case? Because the majority of my friends are uber-liberal Democrats. Obama could have stuttered his way through the debate and there would have been zero criticism. I guess that’s what I don’t understand. Have people become so close-minded that they blindly vote for whichever candidate regardless of capability? I prefer to assess both candidates objectively regardless of political affiliation and when there’s criticism to be had, well then I will dole it out. Silent acceptance does no one any favors. If the tables were turned and Romney had sucked, my Facebook feed would’ve blown up with scorn for the man.
I’ve heard the excuse that Obama has always been a weak debater. For crying out loud, he is a Harvard Law School graduate and the president of the United States. How do you not have effective debate skills?!?!
