President Obama’s performance in Wednesday’s debate should be a wake-up call to the nation’s voters.

Regardless of whether you agree or disagree with his political platform, the president of the United States is supposed to be the leader of the free world. He is supposed to exude an aura of confidence and leadership. He showed neither at Wednesday’s debate.

This is a man who is supposed to meet with leaders of other countries and represent the citizens of the United States. He has to be decisive and strong. If his demeanor on Wednesday is any indication of how he represents our country, it’s time to make a change.
