"I'll tell you this," he said, "... when I'm president of the United States -- that unemployment rate is going to come down, not because people are giving up and dropping out of the workforce, but because we're creating more jobs." Care to finally tell us just how you are going to do that, Mitt? You used to say you were going to cut taxes to stimulate the economy, but in the debate you repudiated that. You used to say you were going to really cut regulations, but in the debate you walked away from that position. You say you are going to eliminate deductions. Which ones? You won't say. And then you have the nerve to stand there with a straight face and claim you are going to seriously drop the unemployment rate. You are nothing but smoke and mirrors, Mitt. We don't need an empty suit making empty promises as President. We need a leader with serious proposals for how to fix the economy.
I think the only people who enjoyed the debate on Wed. were the ones who like the "yell-in-your face" politics, given they thought Romney did well. I like the fact that even though Romney seemed 'hyper', that Obama kept his cool and focus on the task on hand. I'm sorry, but Mitt is just not a likable person, and he definitely didn't come across as any more likeable during the debate. Based on his flip-flopping, it would seem that Romney has a hard time deciding on what corner he should stand at to cross the street... He has always struck me as a "used car salesman" type... maybe next debate the camera can catch that "star" gleam off his tooth.
If Obama thinks that one data point is a victory and sure sign that the economy is on the road to recovery he is a lot more optimistic than I am. I see the middle class eventually bearing the brunt of excessive govt spending. We need leadership and bipartisan action, not finger pointing and hoping.
