Glazer: Presidential Debate Losers Duke it Out Pointlessly

They say 60 million Americans watched the Presidential Debate last night…

Both candidates, Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama looked sharp. Both are clearly very polished speakers.

However in my humble opinion neither really had much of a plan to do anything different or uplifting.

They both talked in circles citing meaningless numbers.

“I did not say I would reduce the federal tax payments by $5 trillion,” said Romney. “You want to reduce the federal income taxes for the rich and lean on the middle class for trillions of cuts and give $2 trillion to the military,” said Obama.

The bottom line; it sounded  kinda like meaningless b.s. Neither seems to have a real plan to do much of anything different.

There were several mentions about Bill Clinton by both guys.

“We’ll do what President Clinton did,” they both said more than once. So now Clinton is the universal man with a plan? Not really. He was just the last president when the economy was strong.

Unfortunately for Romney, he has nobody to back up his Republican plans cause the Bush boys are names you can’t even mention today and Ronald Reagan is long gone.

Odd, wasn’t Billy on trial for lying? Oh, doesn’t matter now – he balanced the budget and things were good. Mitt would have to go back to Reagan but most voters don’t remember him anymore. Wow.

Truth be known, neither guy addressed what most Americans problems are.

Credit card debt with monthly payments of 15-30% interest; large house payments on homes no longer valued at what people paid for them 5 or 10 years ago; being forced to pay much larger monthly health care payments monthly for individuals and their families; car and auto insurance payments that are far too high and NO INTEREST ON THEIR SAVINGS, NONE.

HOW ARE THOSE NOT ISSUES, I ASK?

These days CD’s are worthless but credit cards still bang you for 30% interest. WTF?

Oh I know, “Well, people shouldn’t have overspent..blah, blah, blah.”

BUT THEY DID.

So now you want them put out on their ass? It used to be called entrapment.

Small business suffers from less income and tons more bills with city, state and federal taxes taking as much as 35-45% of their monthly income.¬† So of course they can’t afford to hire more employees or give raises. On top of that most small businesses have to set aside money for the state, city or feds for business licenses – in other words legal robbery. Health cards, liquor cards, entertainment certificates, employee testing that means nothing and on and on.

In small business it’s now almost impossible to make much past a living if you are lucky.

Notice how few there are today. Most successful places for retail, entertainment, or food services are corporate. That way they can lose other people’s money for years before they close.

Again the real problems are, why is my school a prison, crime in America, law enforcements out of control, rules on everything from parking tickets to DUI overloads.  All to make a buck and nothing more instead of focusing on real crime.

We’re a nation with deadly serious issues, yet we’re forced to listen to two guys who have no tax plans argue over their tax plans. Two millionaires who “don’t feel our pain.”

I loved it when they used this one: “A lady in Chicago told me her daughter wanted to go to college but she couldn’t afford it cause of her medical expenses so…”

Yeah, like these guys care deeply, like “a guy from Kansas City wanted to know why parking was 35 bucks at Arrowhead. He couldn’t afford it anymore due to his retirement plan being downsized.”

In the end people who liked Obama will think he won, people who like Romney think he won.

Seems being president today is more about a nice smile and handshake then being able to come up with much of any new plan, huh?

If that is the case it was a tie.

    I had to force myself for five minutes and had to switch to something not totally boring and meaningless. One question I have though; where are the strings on both these puppets? I didn’t see any.

  2. the dude says:

    Watching two identical corporate puppets argue about minutiae makes for boring TV. :(

  3. Rick Nichols says:

    At the very least it would’ve been nice to see Mr. Obama show up with a red tie on and Mr. Romney with a blue tie on, giving voters the idea that both men are willing to reach across the aisle in the spirit of cooperation, but no, the president’s handlers sent him “into the ring” with a blue tie on and the GOP made sure the former MA governor was wearing a red tie. Again, regardless of the outcome of the election, the country is headed for the toilet, no longer able to control and/or manage any number of forces that ultimately dictate its well-being.

  4. Guy Who Says What Others Think says:

    I won’t vote for either guy, but Romney stomped a mudhole in Obama’s ass.

  5. Orphan of the Road says:

    Bill O’Riley called it right, the exposition.

    IF this was a true debate, then Hearne will be on the front row of the Indy 500 with is Fiat.

    Spare a thought for the stay-at-home voter
    His empty eyes gaze at strange beauty shows
    And a parade of the gray suited grafters
    A choice of cancer or polio

    HC: In case you missed it, I’m driving the Abarth version of the Fiat 500 now. But yeah, doubt I’ll be on any of the rows at Indy.
