Much like the first debate, GOP presidential contender Mitt Romney will win the second debate as well but on a much smaller scale. The reasons for the second win in a row will be quite different on the surface but will be much the same beneath the surface.
Mitt Romney’s apprentice salesman stepped on the stage last night and delivered his talking points, but little more. Throughout the night, Joe Biden delivered lesson after lesson to the ambitious young Congressman from Wisconsin.
Both candidates did what they had set out to do. Biden reached out to his base, and Ryan spoke to those who don’t like the direction the country is headed. Republicans are likely not happy that Ryan didn’t deliver the knock-out debate Mitt Romney did a week ago while Democrats are, as previously stated, ecstatic Biden didn’t have a bad night.
What about the voters in-between who will decide the election? They might have found Ryan a bit bloodless. They also might have found Biden disrespectful and rambling.
Vice President Joe Biden mockingly smiled, wagged his finger, and couldn’t seem to stop interrupting Republican running mate Paul Ryan.
First, try to make Paul Ryan look inexperienced and un-Presidential and, two, hold the Romney/Ryan ticket accountable for their ever changing policies and focus on Mitt Romney as someone that cannot be trusted.
Americans continually hear that the president of the United States can do nothing about gas prices. John Hofmeister says that isn’t true. The doubled gas prices could have been avoided but no one in a political position who can do anything about the prices wants to do anything.
A Democratic congressional candidate in New Hampshire is coming under fire after grabbing a camera from the hands of one of her opponent’s staffers.
Vice President Joe Biden is rounding out a two-day trip to New Hampshire with a campaign rally in Merrimack.
President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden are going for the “campy” image which screams “we’re just regular guys” on the 2012 campaign trail. America has never seen the final stretch of a presidential campaign like Obama and Biden are presenting this time around.
