Post N.H. Debate-Two
In the second New Hampshire debate–that thankfully excluded Ron Paul–there was some real discussion, plans and vision on how best to run the country today, not centuries ago.
Governor Mitt Romney was the clear winner of the debate. He articulated his plans to fix the problems America faces in Washington on illegal immigration, taxes, healthcare, education and the war on terror, as the others ganged-up on him again, but again looking presidential Mitt rose above.
Romney exposed Senator John McCain as offering just more of the same old politics that have dragged on for far too many decades, and his voting against the Bush tax cuts twice, that helped the economy to remain vibrant by giving letting people keep more of what they earn with less government interference.
In essence, John McCain just wants to keep democrats happy with more taxes, rules and regulations in his old age, which is why the liberal media wants him to win, going against Mitt Romney who wants to shake things up in Washington.
Romney said that when he was a governor,
"In my first year, our budget actually went down. I vetoed hundreds of times."
"I cut taxes 19 times. You have a choice. You can select somebody who wants to fight for those things or you can select somebody who's actually done those things."
Romney denied opposing the Bush tax cuts, as Pastor Huckabee falsely charged.
"You know, Mike, you make up facts faster than you talk and that's saying something," he said. "So let's slow it down and let's get the facts correctly."
"Washington needs fundamental top-to-bottom change. We're not going to have someone in Washington turn Washington inside out.said Romney.
"Sending the same people to Washington but in different chairs is not going to change the outcome,"
Fred Thompson said leadership is more important than calling for change, as is "having the courage to tell the American people the truth."
Romney also continued to hammer McCain for voting against tax cuts that President Bush endorsed. And he continued to portray the senator as incapable of shaking up politics.
"Americans are not looking for Washington insiders. They are looking for change, and change is what we are going to give them."
Hike Muckabee initially avoided a direct answer to Romney's tax question, prompting Romney to say, "You know, that's political speak ... Now, let me go back to the question I've asked you that you refused to answer three times."
The truth is that the only one who can beat Barak Obama is Mitt Romney. The gap in real world experience is oceanic. Obama is all talk and dreams, where Mitt has actually accomplished most of Obama's rhetoric, having been very successful in both the private and public sectors.
There is no escaping the fact that Barak Obama is a young liberal with a populist twist. But Barack has far too little real world experience to be president.
If America really wants change for the better, the man for job is Mitt Romney, who knows how to make things happen in the most efficient, cost effective way.
Better days are just over the horizon, as long as Mitt becomes president. Otherwise, America is in for who knows what?
And finally, in this day of extremist Islamic Jihad, we cannot take a chance on leftist dreamers tickling our ears trying to make us feel good the same way Bill Clinton did.
