Who do you think won Debate #3? Does it matter?

Watching the debates tonight, we saw a different Romney. He seemed to agree with Obama on everything. I thought Obama acted presidential and better yet, his intelligent self.

Romney tried to calm himself down. He didn’t want us to think he’d love to fight every country in the Middle East.

It doesn’t really matter because most  people have made up their minds already. It’s a sad state of affairs if you ask me. I will go for the more intelligent guy who is not a hot head, and  doesn’t want to increase the navy.  You can guess who I support.

They say, Romney was trying to appeal to women tonight. He was more like a peace-loving guy. Huh?

You could say all you want about Romney, but you gotta say the guy was good-looking in his day. He still is. I bet he’s shocked he’s not appealing to women. Of course the fact that he’s against birth control, abortion, and still sees women in a traditional role might not endear him to young professional women. The fact that he hates teacher’s unions might not excite a lot of those rich teachers either.

Talking heads say Romney must have read Wikipedia and World Book before he got to the debate. He didn’t win me over when he said he wanted more ships for the navy. I loved Obama’s comeback: bayonets and horses aren’t used much anymore either.

But the fact is that the economy is a mess. It’s no fun being without money. You can’t go out and buy stuff without it. Being without a job doesn’t make you feel really good about yourself.  Things are improving, but it’s not fast enough for most people. It’s not a comfortable situation. When you’re desperate, you’ll believe in anyone.

I think every member of Congress should be voted out. They cared more about being reelected that trying to work with the President.

Who says, they’d be any different with another president?

Romney frightens me on several different levels, but  people are impatient and he might just win.

Things might change all right. Tea anyone?

The comeback kid does it again!

Bill Clinton gave a great nomination speech. This guy amazes me. He’s been on the bottom, but manages to come out on top every time.

What a great speech!

Co-operation is a word he used when talking about the way the Republicans and Democrats need to work together.

What really bothered me is how the Republicans said their #1 job was to get rid of President Obama.

That’s the only thing they’ve been working on for the past two years.

They refuse to  co-operate.

They need a time-out, or voted out!

 

I don’t trust Mitt Romney: He gives me a bad vibe

I do not appreciate Mitt Romney’s sense of humor, and I’m hoping it helps him lose the election. Surely, other people can see through his insincerity. I do think good character is important if you’re going to be a leader.
Romney made a birther joke today. Then, he said it wasn’t aimed at President Obama.  He was in Michigan today. He said something like, “I was born in  this hospital right here, and my wife was born in another hospital nearby Nobody asked for our birth certificates.”  (That’s not the exact quote).

I guess this goes along with him putting his dog on the top of his car ( while he was driving), his remark about not worrying about the poor, and going after the guy in high school who was gay. Not to mention his views on birth control and abortion. His choice of running-mate doesn’t sit well with me either.

I consider myself a good judge of character. I don’t like his character. He’s reminds me of someone who says hurtful things, and then excuses  it by saying, “I was only kidding.”

I felt the same way about Nixon. I was right about him.

I am afraid the fickle public are going to elect this guy.

He scares me.

Time will tell

Obama comes out for same sex marriage

Good for Obama for supporting same-sex marriage.

This is not something I spend a lot of time thinking about. I say,” live and let live.’ I don’t know why anyone cares so much about what other people do. If they’re not hurting you, let them do whatever they want.

Now the politicians are going to spend a lot of time focusing on this issue, not the ones  affecting everyone.  Like the economy, jobs and health care.

Tonight I watched people discussing this on TV.

Paul Belgala, one of the talking heads said he thinks it will hurt Obama politically. He thinks it will hurt Obama with older voters, and help with younger voters. I think he may be surprised about that. I think plenty of baby boomers share my feelings.

They showed a clip of Mitt Romney saying, ” I believe marriage should take place between a man and a woman.” I’m all for that. I’ve been in one for a long time. It works for me.

I was in a chorus with a lot of gay woman. They were just as happy in their same-sex marriages. It worked for them. They had very well-adjusted kids too. What’s better than having 2 loving mothers,  2 loving fathers, or a mother and a father?

I think it’s nice if anyone can stay married for longer than a few years. I think it’s nice if anyone gets married at all. I think the challenge is staying married.

I myself, do not take this story literally. But, there are plenty of people who do. I expect to hear from some of them.

What do you think?
