Like I've done with the first two debates, Presidential and Vice Presidential, this will be a two part. Blog on what I think about tonight's debate, the first part being how I thought President Obama did tonight, which of course you can see here on FRSFreeState and the second part that you can. See over at my sister blog over at http://www.FRSFreeStatePlus.Blogspot.com, that you can read over there.
Again this what I thought President Obama needed to do tonight, which is what I mentioned in another post last week. Which was to come off as strong, with a high energy level, like someone who got enough sleep the night before, things he simply didn't do two weeks ago, as well as defend your. Record while pointing out the weakness's in Mitt Romney's record but doing it in a way, that looks Presidential, coming off as tough and factual but respectful and Presidential as well. This is what the situation was when I became President, this is where we've succeeded, this is where I would. Like to go further and this is why we can't afford to have Mitt Romney as President of the United States right now, because he would take us back to the policies of the past, before I became. President that got us in the situation that we are in today and I believe he accomplished all of those things, he commanded the stage and had the most memorable positive moment of the debate. As a result, when they were talking about the Libya attack, where took Mitt Romney to task for not stepping for the people who were attacked and Moderator Candy Crowley gave in the nod for that.
I'm not sure if tonight's debate was a miss opportunity for Mitt Romney, who I'll get into later or. Just a matter of how prepared Barack Obama was tonight, he had a clear plan as far as how he was going to debate tonight, this is what he wanted to say about himself, this is how he wanted to critique. Mitt Romney, this how Governor Romney was going to critique him and this is how he should counter those critiques, everything from the economy, to Energy Policy, Foreign Policy and Immigration Policy. Education as well and Governor Romney attempted to hit the President on all of these things and the President simply had clear answers for all of them, as well as critiquing about what. He believed was wrong with Governor Romney's record, I don't believe the President won in a blowout but clearly by a touchdown if not ten points, which is what the early polls so far are indicating.
