Entering Stretch, Obama Campaign Running on Empty

Romney made a strategic decision not to attack Obama and not allowing Obama to make him sound like a war monger. I think that was a mistake. Romney had an opportunity to nail it and deliver the knockout blow to Obama, but for his own reasons chose not to. I used the word "peace" several times which gives a clue to his strategy. Everyone knows Obama's foreign policy is in shambles what with the Benghazi disaster and coverup, the Arab Spring turning into a win for Al Qaida and the Muslim Brotherhood, foreign outside Jihadists and tactical weapons flowing into Syria to take over the revolt against Assad with little evidence of the West trying to stop it, yet Romney chose not to bring up any of that. In my opinion, that was a mistake.

Mdecca, if "everyone knows Obama's foreign policy is in shambles" as you say, then why would it be imperative to bring it up last night? "Everyone knows" already, but in your opinion, "it was a mistake" not to.

From where I sit, Romney didn't need to bring it up--it's the 800 lb gorilla in the room. By not bringing it up, Romney acted like the sober professional he is. Meanwhile, his opponent (the failed incumbent president) looked like an angry child by comparison.

Look for Romney's poll numbers to rise, while the left trumpets the latest "victory" by their hapless hero.

Those of us who will vote against Obama no matter what wanted Romney to attack and educate. But we're already in the bag. Anyone who is still on the fence obviously still has favorable views of Obama and suffers from lack of understanding so is vulnerable to lying adds and charges of Romney will take us back to Bush. So Romney played nice. I thought it a horrible performance, but we'll have to see how it plays.

I agree - Romney did well, I thought - and some of obuma's comments - like that one about (paraphrasing) 'we have these things called aircraft carriers and airplanes land on them' . . .), along with some of his other infantile nonsense again, there is no comparison with Romney, who looks, acts, and sounds Presidential, far and above any attempt by obuma to do likewise. I can't wait to get him OUT ! !

I agree - he could've helped educate voters and bypassed the msm, like Reagan was able to do. But in his defense, anybody who hasn't been under a rock for four years knows that Obama is a rotten miserable failure of a president.

President Obama's stump speech Thursday at Veterans Memorial Park in Manchester, N.H., was much like the speeches he's given across battleground states in the last few weeks. Listen to it, and you'll hear the short version of what the president promises to accomplish in a second term. It's not much.

"I will not be satisfied until everybody who wants to work hard can find a job," the president told the crowd. To make that happen, he promised to do five things.

First, he would "send fewer jobs overseas [and] sell more products overseas." He proposed to "reward companies that are investing...
