Romney's debate performance 'a home run'
Wilson Democratic, GOP leaders offer views on Obama-Romney debate




President Barack Obama and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney sparred over health care and the economy and offered competing visions for America’s future Wednesday night.

Wilson County’s Democratic and Republican leaders said both candidates made strong appeals to undecided voters even as they dug their heels in on divisive issues like tax policy and universal health care.

"It is a home run for the Republican Party,” Wilson County GOP Chairman Gary Proffitt said. "I don’t know if it was really a debate or not. Mitt Romney was in control from the opening statement.”

Wilson County Democratic Party Chairman Asa Gregory disagreed. Obama controlled the clock, he noted, speaking for 42 minutes and 50 seconds. Romney spoke for 38 minutes and 32 seconds during the debate.

"I think the clock just tells the story,” Gregory said. "Just by the way President Obama was speaking, he was able to make a case every single time where, as far as I’m concerned, Governor Romney was rambling.”

Proffitt said body language showed a relaxed Romney and a nervous Obama.

"Mitt Romney looked and smiled at the president at every opportunity he had,” Proffitt said. "President Obama looked ashamed — he looked down — and he needs to be ashamed.”

Gregory, however, said Obama seemed more confident and comfortable behind the podium than his Republican rival.

"To me, it seems like the pundits, the spinners watched a different debate than I did,” he said. "I feel like Romney had a nervous, jittery attitude. President Obama had the collected responses.”

Proffitt said Romney had high expectations entering the Denver debate.

"Good, bad or indifferent, I think it’s going to set the stage for this campaign,” he said of Romney’s performance before the event began. "This is the year that goes down in history, and tonight is going to set the stage for many undecided voters.”

Both candidates practiced fastidiously for the first of three presidential debates, Romney trading political jabs with Republican Sen. Rob Portman of Ohio.

"The president and governor both are going into this with some butterflies in their stomachs,” Proffitt said.

Before the debate, Gregory said the president had to explain and underscore his first-term accomplishments, which are sometimes overshadowed by the unemployment rate and struggling economy.

"I’m not going to pretend that President Obama has this thing in the bag,” Gregory said. "Polls are a snapshot of the moment. Pressure is on both gentlemen, but I believe that Romney has a lot of ground to make up with the American public.”

Gregory said Romney’s much-maligned comment about 47 percent of Americans paying no income taxes and being dependent on government put him at a disadvantage.

"I have to say that Romney has the work to do,” he said. "He has said some things that have alienated half the nation. He has a lot of work to do to convince a lot of voters.”

Former PBS anchor Jim Lehrer moderated the debate, held at the University of Denver.

The Wednesday event was held on the 20th anniversary of Obama’s marriage to first lady Michelle Obama.

"There are a lot of points I want to make tonight, but the most important one is 20 years ago, I became the luckiest man on Earth because Michelle Obama agreed to marry me,” the president said during his opening statement.

In a rare conciliatory moment, Romney congratulated the Obamas and joked that spending their anniversary with him made for a romantic evening.

I am surprised that you are concerned about Obama's borrowing money...but you have shown no outrage in the reality that every day the government engages in redistribution of gay citizen's tax dollars to support the entitlement wealth of millions of Americans. Just one example: I am divorced after a marriage that lasted 10 years. My ex died 15 years later...so I'm entitled, like every other legally married widow/widower to collect surviving spouse Social Security benefits on my ex's earnings (starting at age 60). Before I collect my own social security at age 66, I will have received $100,000 of taxpayer Social Security benefits - simply because I could legally marry. My brother died of a stroke. He left his partner of 24 years. They both paid the same taxes. My brother's partner does not get a penny of surviving spouse benefits. He could use that money, as he has severe health issues but must continue to work. This economic issue impacts an entire class of people. A candidate that wants us to believe she or he is an economic expert - and yet supports the continued economic injustice toward an entire class of taxpayers - will never get my vote. The pledge to the flag says, "and justice...for all." ALL. Romney Republicans want to put this discrimination into our nation's constitution. This is big government meddling of an unbelievable degree. I am outraged at the blatant disregard for a living class of persons by a political party that advocates for the rights of the unborn fetus. Gender-specific discrimination is wrong. It is an economic issue. It is a moral issue...a survey of parents learning that their fetus was intersexed (having chromosomes and/or reproductive organs characteristic of males and females) reveals that they are routinely encouraged by doctors to abort the fetus. Why? Because our society continues to discriminate on the basis of gender, including the gender of loving partners who want to marry legally. To say this is secondary to the economy suggests that Romney, if elected, cannot lead on one singular front: economic justice for all.

@ romneys tax increase said...

the mortgage deduction proposal would be limited and eventually eleminated for people whose incomes are over 250 k. same way for charitable giving. the democrats are the ones screaming about giving tax cuts to the wealthy. this tax loophole is skewered towards reducing wealthy people tax deductions. it is the Obama administration who if they have their way and let the bush tax cuts for everyone expire and the per child deduction, that will stick the middle class with a 4k plus tax increase.

You say you are voting for Obama based on two things: gay rights are better due to Obama and health care for women and you didn't list any statistics but I did look it up on my own and I can see your point. Also don't bring Romney into this because you should be voting for Obama because of Obama and what he has done and will do. But you didn't include anything about the economy? I'm sorry but that has to be the biggest factor in this election. Obama borrowed money that the US did not have to give a healthcare benefit for women and everyone for that matter. That in turn leaves more people in financial trouble, without jobs, without a future, without a college education, without money to sustain even basic necessities, reliance on the government, reliance on China for money, more jobs lost to China, etc etc etc. And I believe everyone should be treated fairly whether gay or not but but I don't see that as any major reason to vote for Obama unless you want to be gay, poor and living off the government. I still have not found a substantial reason for voting for Obama. And its hard to convince me with socialistic ideas seeing how are a capitalistic society.

You said, "As far as gay issues, I don't think that will hold much water with the economy and the shape it's in..." Please explain to me how granting equality to gay Americans will hurt the economy. Romney can lead on one but not both? Is he really that weak? With the American public increasingly backing equality for gay citizens, why can't Romney achieve jobs and equality? What's so tricky? We've had same-sex marriage in parts of the western hemisphere for a quarter of a century and the world is still turning, last I checked. I don't get your defense of needing more jobs as something that prevents granting equality to gay and lesbian taxpaying citizens. If Romney can't do both, he's not any better than Obama (and frankly, granting equality is a whole lot easier than finding jobs for all!)

@ok give me the scoop said...

Why would I vote for Obama again? Because I believe in safe medical care for women. Because I believe in treating gay people equally (Against the wishes of Republicans and per the positive recommendations of those in charge of the military, Obama got Don't Ask, Don't Tell repealed). Because Romney says "I'm more liberal than Ted Kennedy, a bold-face lie just to get elected. Because Republicans detest teacher benefits. Because Romney is the leader of legislators who make such comments as..."legitimate rape," "if slavery were so bad, why didn't Jesus, Paul, or the prophets condemn it"...."gay people can marry, as long as they marry a heterosexual" and so on. Duh.

Romney's Tax Increase! said...

The middle class is going to pay a big price if Romney is elected. The tax increase on the Middle Class is going to be huge. Thousands of dollars. Cutting the mortgage interest dedution; how is that going to help people buy homes and the home builders that build them? Romney will kill the housing market. He is also planning to cut the charitable giving deductions. How is that going to help our local churches, schools and other non-profits that serve our community?

Tuesday, October 09, 2012 at 7:40 PM ok, give me the scoop said...

Just curious, but why would anyone vote for Obama again? And its a serious question and nothing against Obama. And please use verified facts if you are going to reply. I've yet to run into a person that admits they are voting for Obama, yet seems there are many commenting on here. I am having a hard time believing anyone has any facts that would make them want to vote for him. I'm not saying Romney is the answer so leave him completely out of your replies. I really am curious.

Tuesday, October 09, 2012 at 12:01 PM @ Parent said...

If Obama does not blow his on horn it is not the Republicans job to do it for him. As far as Gay issues, I do not think that will hold much water with the economy in the shape it is in.Gay or not people need jobs to pay bills and eat first.

Tuesday, October 09, 2012 at 10:07 AM Parent said...

I find it fascinating that Republicans are against abortion because every fetus counts. Then they conveniently decide that Obama has done nothing in the past four years. As a parent of a gay child, I know every person counts, including my child. Republicans have conveniently aborted from this discussion any mention as to what Obama and Democrats have done for my child and every gay child. Of course, that's because Republicans believe an unborn child counts, but a born one? No, gay children are an inconvenient reality for Republicans and it's not surprising to read all these posts declaring Obama has done nothing. Just exactly would Republicans do for equality across the board for our gay children, our gay citizens? You needn't bother to answer...you're agenda is to abort gay people. And I guarantee that if a gene is ever found for sexual identity (heterosexual, homosexual or bisexual), Republicans will suddenly be pro-choice or wait....they'll outlaw marriage for anyone who carries the gene.

Deep down, you look and feel real foolish asking people to vote for you after you made promise after promise four years earlier and couldn't follow thru with any of it. After four years of not getting much accomplished, Obama doesn't have the conviction this time around.

Monday, October 08, 2012 at 8:52 PM Wow II said...

The 2 men stood acroos the stage from each other. If Romney was telling as many lies as this peron and MSNBC said, then why didnt Obama just say so? This is a race for the Presidency. Its a DEBATE. He did not say so because he knows his campaign has been spinning their own web of deceit. Why wasnt Obama prepared? Isn't he is the President? He sure did not appear to have a handle on the Economy or any of the issues. He is a joke. He likes the "idea" of being President, he just dosent know how to be.

Monday, October 08, 2012 at 1:20 PM eh said...

They are just upset that Obama got his lunch handed to him in the debate. Its tough on someone who had four years to do things and those didn't work so he couldn't stand on his own merits. Now we are in severe debt and he piled it up quicker than any other President and more than the last 43 Presidents combined. He had no experience to show that he would have made a good President. Now we know it was true.

Anybody that watched that debate saw that Romney is much better prepared to fix our country's current economic woes. Obama has had 4 years and has done nothing with it. If voted back in, we will continue to suffer.

Saturday, October 06, 2012 at 9:10 AM Truth said...

For starters, Romney told 37 lies in 40 minutes. Now that is a winner for sure. And what ever acting school he went to, he sure was a winner, right down to convincing many that the hankerchief was not cheat notes. Then why was he so sneaky about it. I think now that the jobs figures have come out at 7.8 percent, some of you may stop and think about it. Romney has lost his whole campaign theme. I think that Obama realizes now that he is up against an actor. Must be hard to figure out which one he will be debating. As I always say, every dog has it's day and Romney will be spending a lot of time in November trying to figure out what went wrong as he vacations in the Cayman Islands, spending his hidden stash. The President did a great job of explaining Romney's plans. If you read the debate transcript, without Romney's theatrics, you will see the President Obama knew what he was talking about and Mr. Romney did not. And Obama did not have to lie about it. How about some fact checking folks and then tell me Romney won the debate?

Tired of hearing how hard it's going to be on the next generation. I worked my way through college, got a job, bought a house, and am now retired. I intentionally chose not to have children and instead, contribute to the welfare of others' kids. The next generation should not expect their parents to pay for their education and if they want to put a roof over their heads - get a job, save money and think very carefully about having children. If they choose to have kids, don't whine about how expensive they are and expect those of us who made the choice not to have any put up with the incessant whining.

Friday, October 05, 2012 at 5:55 PM @to wow said...

A drop of three-tenths of a percentage point isn’t unusual, and any smaller change isn’t considered statistically significant. This is not what a real recovery looks like. The US created fewer jobs in September than in August, and fewer jobs in August than in July . . . if not for all the people who have simply dropped out of the labor force, the real unemployment rate would be closer to 11 percent. We are FAR from an economic recovery and the last four years has been FAR from the right road to recovery. Even Jack Welch tweeted this: "Unbelievable jobs numbers, These Chicago guys will do anything . . . can’t debate so change numbers.” Unemployment vs employment; sometimes they’ll give conflicting messages and sometimes it takes a month or two to resolve it. Another sign that the economy remains below par: The number of long-term unemployed – those jobless for 27 weeks or more – remained stuck in September at 4.8 million. These long-term jobless Americans accounted for 40.1 percent of all the unemployed.


Friday, October 05, 2012 at 3:08 PM To Wow said...

And then Friday morning the jobs numbers came out and showed that the economy is continually improving under Obama. Mitt Romney's ace in the hole was his dependency on a stagnant economy--if he doesn't have that, how can he hope to win?

Blame the moderator? It was said in pre-debate that the style of this debate would be more open and less controlled. If that was planned, the moderator did a good job.
Obama was even more exposed as the fraud he is while Romney looked and acted like an Executive, ready to lead.
When Obama woke up Thursday morning, he was trying to find out if having your butt whooped was covered under ObamaCare.

I am sure you are the 47%! Everything the President has done or has tried to do have been shot down by republicans. I am listening to different ppl up saying Romney won...but did you really listen? He characterized ppl as "poor" then he must have realized “this is televised” I might better say underprivileged or less fortunate. @ Veteran Educator, the devil smiles when he is doing wrong...Why not Mitt...President Obama has my support and always will but for those who want a rich man who cares nothing for ppl not in his "status quo" you will see how much he cares for you when things get rolling!(if he can pull off a few more good lies and get elected) Good luck w/that and I’m laughing all the way...LOLLOLLOLOL!!

Friday, October 05, 2012 at 8:31 AM Times Reader @ Dancy said...

So I guess you were there at the debate watching Nobama take notes. Or is that your story to make you feel better even though you know Nobama got whipped in that debate? Romey stated 47% would vote for Nobama no matter what. A black person voting for the president purely for the color of his skin is just as racial as a white person voting for Romney just because he's white. Tell me what the president has done in the last 4 years that makes you want to vote for him. Or is it just a black man wanting to keep a black president. Or should I say a mixed president. Technically it's half white you're voting for.

Friday, October 05, 2012 at 8:13 AM @Veteran Educator said...

Think you took his comments out of context. About PBS subsidizing he said "I’m not going to keep on spending money on things to borrow money from China to pay for it.” I applaud him for it. He's the only one that has the nerve to get up and detail the real things that must be done to reduce our spending/borrowing/and reliance on China. You can't Government subsidize everything while the economy goes down the tubes. Surely anyone can understand that? If you don't fix the economy the parents can't afford to send little Johnny to college to keep our kids at the top of education. It is time to take the serious road to recovery not just a bail out which is failing America while China loans us money. And you mention "impoverished homes"...There are no statistics to back your assumptions because ALL children are afforded an education in the US whether impoverished or rich. Big Bird is not a substitute for school and I certainly would rather have a better economy so I can provide more education to my children, not Big Bird.

Friday, October 05, 2012 at 9:19 PM Veteran educator said...

When Romney so glibly told the moderator that he would make sure he lost his job by cutting PBS funding...and that even though he liked Big Bird, but frankly didn't give a hoot for the millions of American kids who profit from PBS programming, I took note. Romney may be skilled with numbers, but he's not a people person. He has no heart. As a veteran educator, I'm well aware of the fact that many children from impoverished homes (where no one reads to them and no one engages them in activities directly related to literacy) profit from quality PBS programming. Romney clearly doesn't know or doesn't care about that reality. PBS is an outstanding component for pre-school and early learners in this country. And to tell someone "You'll lose your job if I'm president" while smiling....that's not character that impresses me.

No matter who you like, it was very easy to see who got the best of the debate. And Obama took 4 extra minutes than Romney to boot. I wasn't sure Romney was the right candidate but I certainly am not voting for four more years of what we have and a President who can't even trump a "candidate" in a simple debate. He looked lost and unable to vocalize what he accomplished in the last four years let along what he is going to do different. At least Romney looked him straight in the eye and straight at us in the camera and didn't study notes. Plus Mitt actually had a planned closing speech; Obama seemed to just wing it. As far as Mitt not detailing his plans, well what did Obama detail? Let's see, he did detail plans in 2008; actually he said if he didn't reduce the deficit by half in his first three years in office he didn't deserve to be reelected. Guess Obama said it all. All he did in office was write checks and blame Bush. A President's legacy is what they did while in office not what the former President did to them. Just think if he does pull off a miracle and gets reelected what mess he'll inherit this time!!

I was thinking Romney was going to be boring but wow, he knows his stuff and appeared very Presidential. His family looked very nice as well and it is far past time to put class back in the Whitehouse. Even Obama's own party admits it was a lackluster night which means Romney kicked his butt.
