Romney vs. Obama
When we have faced down impossible odds; when we've been told that we're not ready, or that we shouldn't try, or that we can't, generations of Americans have responded with a simple creed that sums up the spirit of a people: Yes, we can” (Obama).The presidential debates between President Obama and governor Mitt Romney were certainly a game changer, with polls tightening among the two candidates in the final stretch of the campaign season. Obama has a clear lead. He gave great points throughout the second and third round, he also gave great responses in every question and to Romney, and he answers the questions completely, unlike Romney who goes around the question.
At the beginning of the second debate Jeremy, a former college student asks a question over job perspectives and how they are planning to give out jobs to the new graduates of America. Not answering the question fully Governor Romney, ...view middle of the document...
And number three Obama states that he is taking control of natural resources not just looking into the next year but in the next twenty years for the future. He wants to reduce the deficit, but he needs to find a balanced way to do so. Obama’s plan is to ask the wealthy to pay a little bit more, along with cuts, so that the government can invest in education. He plans to take the money that nation has been spending on war over the last decade to rebuild America -- roads, bridges, schools; which creates a jobs and a better future.
As the debate continues on the question about gas prices is asked. Romney tells the audience that he is expected to help with gas companies and other natural resources and that he will do his best to bring down the prices on gas, unlike the president quote on quote. “When the president took office, the price of gasoline here in Nassau County was about a buck eighty-six a gallon. Now it's four bucks a gallon. Price of electricity is up.” A few moments later Candy refocuses the debate by asking president Obama if what Romney had just said was true.Obama quickly fights back and he gives a response that leaves the audience murmuring. He said “when I took office, the price of gasoline was a dollar eighty and now is about four dollars, Why is that? Because the economy was on the verge of collapse; because we were about to go through the worst recession since the Great Depression as a consequence of some of the same policies that Governor Romney is now promoting. So it's conceivable that Governor Romney could bring down gas prices, because with his policies we might be back in that same mess.” Of course Obama took the fight, he deserves to be president again. He was just stating what is true.
If the people of our nation vote for Governor Romney, what is there to expect we have seen it all throughout the debates. He clearly cannot answer the questions completely which leads one to think that he does not know what to do with our countries problems. Yes he has a plan to open up five million jobs but how will he do it? By investing money the country does not have and leave it in greater depth than what it is. Unlike Romney president Obama is experienced and knows what our country needs to perfect that is why Borack Obama won the debates.
