Presidential Debate of October 3, 2012

The long awaited first Presidential debate in this political election cycle took place in Denver, on October 3,  2012.  Presidential debates have long been more about style than substance however this debate has brought us into new territory. Complete video clip of the 1st Presidential debate of  October 3, 2012 involving President Barack Obama and Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney can be downloaded from our site.  The final Presidential debate is going to be held on  October 22  and will give attention to foreign policy as opposed to domestic policy.  Following the  first Presidential debate  between President Obama and Governor Romney, the general opinion appears to be that the Governor  did a lot to strengthen his position  while the President appeared to  fall flat on his performance .

Romney states the election is even bigger than he and Obama. He also seemed much more relaxed than President Obama, who spent most of his time detailing policies he would likely rather be done selling at this point. Romney also stated:

1.) that he supports education and learning as well but didn’t put together an education strategy in as much detail as the President

2.) that he would keep things as they have been

3.) suggested that the government need to grade schools in order that parents can make a decision where to send their kids

4.) that he loves great schools and the answer to excellent schools is fantastic teachers, so he rejects the notion that he doesn’t believe that the country requires far more educators

5.)  planned to lower income tax rates by 20% as well as remove the estate tax and the alternative minimum tax.

Romney challenged Obama’s claim that his health care program falls short of a sufficient method of getting individuals with pre-existing conditions medical health insurance.

Obama may undoubtedly turn into a tragic character and reiterated that he has tried his hardest as President to make the playing field fair and help America get over a debilitated economic climate.  He actually raised the $716-billion amount initially, stating that amount was “saved” by “no longer overpaying insurance companies, [and] by making sure that we weren’t overpaying providers.

Obama called for not offering tax breaks to businesses that are shipping jobs abroad.  Obama is certainly a talented and proficient speaker, and even though his overall performance in the debate wasn’t his greatest, the complaints struck me as being a tempest in a teapot.
