Romney Handley Wins Final Debate

The third and final 2012 Presidential Debate is over. With just two weeks left before the general election this exhausting campaign year will soon be over and on November 7 the world will know which path to the future American's have chosen for themselves. Will it be four more years of failed economic policies under Barack Obama, or will the majority of those in the United States say they have placed their hopes and votes in former Governor and CEO Mitt Romney? As far as this last debate is concerned, one in which foreign policy was the leading topic of discussion, I am of the humble but honest opinion that Romney never looked more Presidential than he did in tonight's final debate. And because of that alone, he won the debate. Obama came to attack, insult and belittle the Governor, however, Romney didn't take the bait which threw-off the President's game plan. As a result Obama ended up and came off as defensive, rushed and worried.

While giving the President his just due on his foreign policies that have succeeded, Romney came across as very well informed on foreign affairs and was also able to reiterate, with clarity, the four years of overwhelming Obama failure in domestic, economic and foreign policy.

As a thirteen year military veteran I did take issue with President Obama's attempt at sarcasm aimed at Mr. Romney when he tried, but failed, to belittle the Governor's knowledge of "just how the military works." I believe it's the current Commander and Chief that needs a bit more of a military education. For starters, just to clarify the inaccuracy of the President's comments concerning the use of horses and bayonets. In certain arenas of combat today in the U.S. Army Calvary, they still use the tried and true horse. Also, Marines routinely still use bayonets as a vital part of their weaponry. One other thing Mr. Obama needs is lessons in military lingo. Submarines are not "ships that go under water," they are correctly referred to as boats. You'd think a real Commander and Chief would know that. While this may seem nit-picking to some, I think it is another case of showing just how out of touch with the reality of his job this President is.

There were some comments on various social media sites applauding President Obama for showing his ability to put out the bullshit and make it eatable for the general public in this debate. I agree that when it comes to slinging bullshit, next to Bill Clinton, Obama is a very close second. But people, at least those with any kind of intelligence and real concern for the future of this nation, have grown tired of the BO-BS and want someone who can get this country back on the track to greatness. After these three debates and a horrific four year record as President, I believe the answer to who can get that job done has been answered. The man for the job is Mitt Romney.
