ELECTION: Debate proof of Obama’s incompetence

The presidential debate was a lesson in leadership for Barack Obama. Mitt Romney gave Obama a lesson in constitutional interpretation. Romney had all his facts together, never stammered or deflected the question, and looked Obama square in the eye while debating.

Obama appeared meek and defeated, lowering his head and avoiding eye contact with Romney. He stuttered, hemmed and hawed, and provided us with big words that meant nothing.

Wednesday’s debate was proof of Obama’s incompetence and weakness as our great country’s leader. While Romney was ready with plans, statistics, forecasts and statistics, Obama rambled on as usual, employing rhetoric that said nothing, meant nothing, promised nothing and left us with nothing to believe in.

The next month will produce tons of dirty advertisements against Romney, sponsored by the Democrats and Obama himself. Obama’s failure time and again to relate to the American people, ignore the Constitution, disregard our military, and refuse to work across party lines is the reality of the day, but we can change that in November.
