DEBATE NUMBER ONE, MITT OUTFLANKED BARACK.
As the presidential debate number one goes into history books, Icheoku makes bold to say that watching President Obama during the debate left much to be desired. Either he was tired or pissed off at something or indeed did not prepared well enough for the debate. Our verdict, like millions of other Americans and interested foreigners alike that tuned in, it was Mitt Romney's night in Denver.
However Icheoku disagrees with the margin being ascribed to Mitt's out-performance of the president and would rather state that it hovers around 57 against the president's 51 percentage points respectively. Some good news however is that the debate no matter how erudite and lofty, would not necessarily affect the votes of die in the wool partisans; moreso the topic centered on the economy which is Mitt Romney's strongest argument why he want to be president and President Obama's Achilles heel shadowing his reelection bid. What is Icheoku saying, that Mitt Romney has fired his best and probably final shot and there are two more battles yet ahead, in areas President Obama have succeeded and would take his own pound of flesh then - foreign relations and keeping America safe. May be like Don Corleone said in The Godfather, the economy-debate might be the bad news that is preferably better served first, for President Obama. As going forward with the debates, the Mitt having spent his most lethal weapon can only look as the president takes him to task to explain which Mitt Americans will see as president and why he says one thing in private and says completely different thing when in public?
Further, it would appear that the president, like millions of other Americans that tuned in, was surprised by the different Mitt Romney that showed up for the debate - a somewhat more amiable and jocularly beaming Mitt, that was entirely different from the stiff and woody Mitt America has been living with these past several months. Icheoku is not a fan but would admit that the Mitt Romney that turned out for this debate left impressions; although not enough to persuade us differently with our priceless vote come November 6. Last but not the least is that Mitt Romney is a seasoned salesman who could easily sell snake oil to anyone or even sand to Sahara desert dweller and so was in a better position to push his sloganeering agenda past a very articulate and methodical president who came across somehow unsure of his positions or was seen deferring so much to Mitt Romney as he constantly used the words "Mitt and I agree....?"
Anyway be the debate as it may, the fact of this election is that Mitt is very mean and does not and would not care about so many Americans on the bottom of the food chain. However, Icheoku is in agreement that people should be taught rather how to fish than to be perpetually handed fish; but posits that the weaning-off process should be a gradual one as opposed to the cold-turkey approach Mitt and Ryan are saying the would implement.
So in conclusion, Icheoku says that luckily the campaign still has more than four weeks to go and the auto industry-reliant Ohio and Pennsylvania states would not forget who saved their life-blood when it mattered most and who wanted it junked. Further that a man who would not release his tax records probably has something he is hiding and suffers a credibility question. to be president. That a man who is not consistent but constantly speaks from both sides of his mouth is sure not the type of president America desires or deserves at this time. Needless to add that America is safer today because Osama Bin Laden is gone and we know under whose watch that came to pass. In any event, America, lets allow the president's planted seeds of tomorrow's better and stronger economy mature into a harvest that the plurality of Americans would enjoy and not rush him out the door considering the enormity of the disaster which he inherited from the previous administration. So on November 6, VOTE OBAMA and do not let the president suffer a defeat in the hands of the man who was defeated by Senator John McCain who the president defeated in 2008. Moreso the president has done good job so far and should be allowed to complete his legally tolerable second term.
