Wednesday night was the second presidential debate between, of course, challenger Mitt Romney and class-warfare-in-chief Barack Obama.
Objectively speaking, I’d say it was close. However, if I had to determine a winner, I’d say Romney took a slight edge — mainly because of his responses on economic policy, and his assault against Obama on the President’s commiserable “economic recovery.”
Foreign policy, I believe, was a stalemate. Romney took Obama on energy, pointing out Obama’s blatant distortions about his “war on coal” and anti-oil agenda. There was a lot of backtracking here from the President. But still, he did a decent job at defending his anti-coal, anti-oil ideology.
And then taxes — the topic of the day. The rich are so evil. It is vile, repulsive, and corrupt to want to earn a lot of money. The wealthy should all be stuffed in a well and burnt alive. That’s how the President and all his Democratic acolytes sound when they talk about this “fair share” bullcrap.
I wish Romney would have hit Obama harder on this, censuring him for wanting to squeeze the wallets of job producers. It’s an easy question to ask: “Mr. President, if you had a business that was teetering on the edge of bankruptcy, would you hire people knowing that you might have to pay a s**t load more in taxes?”
That’s how I’d word it.
