DEBATE: President was definitely the winner

Mitt Romney tried snowing the audience again in Tuesday’s debate. I have followed this campaign very closely, reading and watching Romney, and was shocked to hear him boldly say the exact opposite of what he says on the campaign trail (or behind closed doors) on most issues.

This man will say and do anything to be president. It was easy to forget what some of the questions asked by the audience were when Romney would answer, as he would go on and on with his same talking points. His aggressiveness and disrespect for the moderator and the president worked well for him in the first debate but did not work for him Tuesday.

Romney may have “won” the first debate but Tuesday’s debate did not go in the “win” column for him. President Obama definitely won this second debate.
