Obama vs. Romney - Round 2
Tonight our eyes and ears will be treated to a political battle between two men trying to convince a nation that they are the right man for the top job in our government. The format is going to be a Town Hall debate with members of the audience asking the candidates questions in front of the country. Should be entertaining and hopefully educational. No scripts here or teleprompters. Romney has enjoyed a boost from the last debate and will be looking to continue that momentum. I hope we hear more specifics on his tax & deficit plan as well as his energy plan. Obama is going to be more aggressive in his rhetoric and much more assertive with Romney. I hope to hear more about Obama's plan for the next 4 years because so far he has only defended his last 4 years and said that he needs more time. America needs some concrete answers. Alas, these are politicians we are talking about where exaggerations, omissions, and ambiguity are the norm. My advice might be to simply cover your ears and see who 'acts' better. All stone throwing aside, this is another important moment in a string of important moments for this country and we all have to do what we think is best for us and our families. Just voting says you care.
One quote I came across a few weeks ago keeps me thinking: "In this election its feels like you have to choose between a better job or a better world."
What do you think? Which ideal would you pick? Or do the two go hand in hand?
