For the second time, I live Tweeted the debate. And last night was sure something.
You know the way I lean. I was happy to see our President back in control. He showed up. And showed Romney up too. The result was a sense of control...and the portrayal of Romney as rude, arrogant and disrespectful.
I love this country. I sincerely do. I'm helping Mia learn the national anthem. When the anthem is played at the high school behind my house, I stand. I think the welfare of our country - and it's people - should be of primary importance to our President. Not oil lobbies or special interest groups.
I don't think Mitt Romney is a bad guy. I think he's quite bright with good ideas and a very strong sense of what's right for the country. I just don't agree with him. As I said on debate night, this comes down to a choice between what's good for a society and what's good for individuals.

Well if he's not allowed to have any, no one else can either. I thought the debate went well for Obama. Romeny struck me as the kind of arrogant, isolated rich man who has no clue about the majority of working poor (aka "middle class") and I certainly wouldn't look to him for help. Fingers crossed for Nov. 6th.
You hit the nail on the head with this summation: "this comes down to a choice between what's good for a society and what's good for individuals." What those "individuals" fail to see is that if society is not advantaged, then it ultimately will affect them in the long run.
I watched the last 15 minutes of the debate. I feel I got a good perspective without having too watch the entire thing.
My take is that everyone voting for Mitt is simply voting for the other guy. What troubles me is that no one I know who is voting for him seems to care what his platform is.
Tread carefully. Chris Cactus can sell TWO of you for a buck-fitty.
Seriously. He told me so.
