In response to:
Obama got to speak three minutes longer than Romney and he still couldn't convince me he knows anything about leadership. I was disappointed that the moderator didn't let Romney respond to some of Obama's comments. Hardly fair in a debate. Obama sketched out what he would do in a second term but the question is with almost four years in office why hasn't he done it up til now? I was very disappointed in Obama's answers on energy independence. I liked Romney's answer that if his energy policy was working prices would be going down not up. Getting America energy independent is a very big thing with me and relates directly to jobs. Romney's position on energy independence is enough by itself to give him my vote. Sorry Obama.
The usual spin from both sides declaring victory in the vice presidential debate underscores just how stunning and unusual Romney's blowout win in the first presidential debate was. That win up-ended the race and catapulted Romney into the lead in most national polls. President Obama, in turn, has reacted by shifting his campaign's central theme from the implausible claim that Romney is an extreme conservative to an accusation that he's a flip-flopper. But it is Obama who has a head-spinning record of, on issue after issue, doing the opposite of what he promised on the campaign trail in 2008.
