In my personal opinion, I think Obama showed that he can lead the U.S. even in crucial times and that he will fight for us and still manage to keep a positive attitude. In the other hand, Romney in both Presidential Debates showed aggressiveness and bad-temper. If he cannot keep calm in a debate, I think he would not be able to keep a positive figure for the people. Mitt Romney was a good debate but was not clear on the details. When a Jeremy, a 21 year old college student asks, what can be insure, if he’ll be able to pay his loans after he graduates.
There is a lot to blame on the past administration, for how bad the economy became. But the top priority of the people is to elect a candidate that will move the economy forward. With the election closing in, each candidate had their chance to make there statement in the debates. The President states that the recovery takes time, and there is still a lot of work to be done. While Governor Romney says, with his experience he knows what it takes.
Shawn Howell Professor Leyva October 09, 2012 Writing Journal #3 The Presidential Debate On October 03, 2012 the presidential debate between President Obama and Governor Mitt Romney began with moderator Jim Lehrer. I watched the debate wondering, what will the candidates state in their plans to recuperate the United States of America? How will they perform? Will their speeches and performances be convincing to the people of America. In performance, I witnessed both candidates being respectful to one another yet Mitt Romney presented a stronger opposition and was aggressive at times.
The halftime super bowl commercial truly does support the idea of the company’s persistence. Marchionne took on the once thought impossible task with the help of the Bush and Obama administration. Still, Several politicians, such as Karl Rove, who argues that the ad was a strategically placed commercial used to praise and support Obama during the 2012 reelection, feeling the need to “repay their political patrons,” (Stewart). Although these ideas are brought about, Marchionne continues to stand on his current position over the ad. “We are as apolitical as you can make us…” states Marchionne; he continues to say the ad was a tribute to Chrysler employees, and how the ad was used “because it says something…about the resilience of America,” (Bury).
He uses the straw man fallacy, which is achieved when one opponent distracts the audience from the opposing opponent’s position so that it makes them appear ignorant. He masters this fallacy when saying, “President Obama would be running for re-election based on his achievements… and rightly so. But because he has failed, he will run a campaign of diversion, distractions, and distortions” (par. 12). When using the straw man fallacy, Romney tries to make Obama look foolish and act as though Obama’s next term in the Presidency will be helpless.
Most people develop these opinions by hearing something bad about a candidate and they either decide that they do not like that candidate because of it or that they do in fact like them. There is a direct correlation as to whom the voter is voting for and the first few commercials/ads that they saw. Many people will watch an ad that says Obama is a bad president and will go with that for the rest of the election and end up voting for Romney just because that was the first ad they saw and that was the first opinion that developed. Many times, first opinions do not disappear. So therefore, many times a person’s decision on who to vote for will come from the first ads/commercials that they see.
This decision ends up backfiring which leads Democrats (and now some Republicans) to strengthen their aversion towards him. Taking this decision into consideration, as well as all of the evidence we have on Romney for being a “flip flopper”, people may begin to feel differently towards this man being the right choice for America. It seems that this close to the election, Americans are still trying to figure out the real, truthful views of Mitt
Winnable Candidate: Obama Barrack Hussein Obama is likely to be the winnable candidate for US General Election 2012. With less than two weeks to go, we can see that there are massive ideological differences between the candidates. What is on the headline is the future of health care, a woman’s right to choose, tax fairness, the social safety net, who gets credit for the economic recovery that seems to be around the corner, whether or not we go to war with Iran and the makeup of the Supreme Court for the next generation. From my personal view, Obama will win the election due to the fact that Obama has declared his position on many political issues through his public comments and legislative record. Based on Polltracker Poll, American views the Barack Obama will work better than the Republican presidential candidate Romney in addressing terrorism and national security.
Vice Presidential Debate 2012: Joe Biden vs. Paul Ryan The mediator starts off with asking about Chris Stephens. Biden makes promises right out of the shoot to me it seems like he is being fake about what he is saying. I understand that in his position he needs to have America like him, but to me he seems a little dramatic about what he is saying. Congressman Ryan comes back with the President taking 2 weeks to acknowledge that was a terrorist attack. “If we are going to be hit with a terrorist attack, we are going to call it for what it is, a terrorist attack.” I see how Biden interrupts Ryan saying that it is a bunch of Malarkey.
It has, and you’ve been in office for the last four years. It’s time that someone else gets the chance to make America better. Something different needs to be done, we can’t keep going down this road. What I have gathered from the debates, the Presidential Election of 2012 is going to be a close but unnecessary battle between two sides, democratic and republican, that should be an easy decision after the last four years. The points are the complete opposite of each other.
