Romney showed what knowledge and experience can do against President Obama who has neither. Obama continues to think that if you implement a program or cut taxes for some people, that you need to raise taxes on others to fund it – a static view of the economy.
He doesn’t understand the concept of growing the economy and raising revenue by creating more jobs. Obama sees the economy as a static entity, requiring increased taxes to pay for programs, rather than growth and freedom creating a dynamic economy that will raise all boats!
It’s hard not to be condescending to president Obama, who obviously doesn’t understand the economy and has proved it for the last 4 years. Romney was the teacher and Obama was the student tonight!
Finally, Romney got to talk directly to the people without the media filter between them. The debate showed the people that the Romney’s so-called voucher plan for healthcare, as Obama and the media have defined it, really provides a choice to remain on Medicare or chose to purchase a private plan and allow competition between plans to decide which succeeds and which does not. It’s called free enterprise, Mr. President!
Romney showed he was bipartisan and compassionate, providing leadership with the ideas and goals, then sit down with both parties and listen to all the ideas presented as he did as governor with 87% Democrats to work out a solution, not dictate to Congress this is the plan, take it or leave it, like Obama did. Not one Republican voted for it!
That way, the members of both parties of Congress will have buy in and know what’s in the bill before they vote for it, Ms Pelosi.
Obama fans, it wasn’t the moderator’s fault, as some have claimed, it was your candidate’s lack of understanding of the economy that made it a great night for Mitt Romney!
