The Debate

I just finished watching the debate. I have to say I enjoyed it. I thought it was pretty lively and entertaining. Both men aquitted themselves well though I thought Romney  finally showed some life. Up until then, though I liked him, he really had a problem relating to the average person. After all he's a rich man who owns a dancing horse. As for the President, though I thought, he did a good job as well, but he really didn't go after Romney on his comment about not being able to relate to 47% of the people. I would have thought that this was a fastball right over the plate. I am an independent voter. I used to be strictly Democratic as is the vast majority of my state. Yet we still elect Republican governors, save for our present governor. Politics are quite popular here. It's right up there with our love for pro sports, save for the dismal performance of the Red Sox. Ugh how quickly the mighty have fallen. At least we still have the Patriots and Celtics. Massachusetts was mentioned several times and I will admit that I was pretty proud of my state. We are always involved politically nationally in one way or another for good or bad. I was curious how the presidents health care program,  based on ours here, which Romney signed into law, would be handeled. Curiously I really can't remember how Romney dealt with it other to say that he worked with Democrats to get it done. Then he went on to say he would repeal "Obama care". Huh? So which way is it Mitt. And while I'm on the subject, is the name Mitt short for something?  Mittley? Mitterwald? Mittens? Or is he just plain Mitt. He's the only person I have ever known to be named such. And I also have to say he looks pretty damn good for a 65 year old man. That's probably due to good genes, a clean lifestyle and millions of dollars. 

I am looking forward to next couple of debates. I'm going to keep it short and sweet with this blog because it's about 11:45 pm and I have to be at work at 7 am. Well I don't know how sweet it is but it's one of my shorter ones.

Time for sleep.
I'm outta here.



  1. Kudos to you! I watched the first 10 minutes of the debate and shut off the TV to read. Personally I am disenchanted with our president and I just plain don't like Mitt since I fall in the class of the 47% of voters that he can't be bothered with. I have some serious thinking to do before election day. Don't work too hard Bro, have a great weekend and stay safe.

  2. Blessings.....
    hard to relate to the average man, hmmmmm, that is a problem isn't it?

    hope you are well, stay blessed.

  3. Hi Paul! I like Beth watched only a portion of the debate. I had popcorn an such you'd think I was gonna watch a football game. I would have rather watched a football game. I too am one of the 47% Mitt don't bother about. I don't know what our presidents plan is to get things better again. He says construction jobs an such like golly I could get a job doing that (?) If health insurance is manditory how can millions out of work folks pay for it? Obama care was taken from Mitt's and Mitt said at one point it has flaws. Ya well I hope Hilary runs in 4 years ;-)
    Take care my friend.

  4. you are the person both of those men representing their parties are after! so much campaigning is geared towards the independent voter...YOU!! I used to be a democrat, but after I saw my babies ultrasounds I realized i could not support that party platform...
