Romney dazzles in Denver

For anyone who tuned in to watch the debates on Wednesday, it would be ridiculous to say that President Barack Obama performed better than former Governor Mitt Romney during the first presidential debate. With his aggressive demeanor and offensive attitude, Romney certainly grasped the attention of millions of viewers across the nation

The past few weeks were intolerable as Obama gained more and more support in the polls, with the public seeming to forget the obvious consequences of his policies, like increasing numbers in poverty and dependency as well as the loss of global influence and the inability to assert ourselves as a true world power. Republicans were hungry for Romney to step it up and address the crisis and damage the Obama presidency has created for the nation, and certainly got their stomach’s fill in Denver.

With an astounding, utterly dazzling performance, Romney highlighted many of Obama’s distortions and lies, beating the president to the punch every single time. The president was left stuttering and dumbfounded at many points during the debate, while Romney’s voice rang crystal clear and without fault throughout the night.

Romney often used humor and wit to reveal the inaccuracies and fallacies stated so often by the president’s campaign. A personal favorite moment was when Obama identified one of his made-up facts, saying that companies receive tax breaks “for shipping jobs overseas,” to which Romney replied, “You said you get a deduction for taking a plant overseas. Look, I’ve been in business for 25 years. I have no idea what you’re talking about. I maybe need to get a new accountant.”

For the second presidential debate in New York on Oct. 16, Romney needs to have another brilliant debate, as Obama will most certainly be more prepared than in Denver. If Romney can prove to be as fantastic as he was in Denver, his performance will be known as one of the best in the history of the presidential debates, and may have the power to win him this election.
