Presidential Debate. The 1st 2012 presidential debate was a very heated discussion. Both candidates made great and valid points

Extracts from this document...


´╗┐Phan Thien Phan Professor Tarango October 26, 2012 Extra Credit Presidential Debate on Domestic Policy On October 03, 2012 the presidential debate between President Obama and Governor Mitt Romney began with moderator Jim Lehrer. I watched the debate wondering, what will the candidates state in their plans to recuperate the United States of America? How will they perform? Will their speeches and performances be convincing to the people of America. In performance, I witnessed both candidates being respectful to one another yet Mitt Romney presented a stronger opposition and was aggressive at times. President Obama and Governor Mitt Romney shared their agreements, differences, choices and specifics on the economy, healthcare, role of government and governing. I liked how they were able to come to an agreement on the need to boost American energy production and the energy, as Obama stated, ?On energy, Governor Romney and I, we both agree that we've got to boost American energy production, and oil and natural gas production are higher than they've been in years. ...read more.


President Barack Obama for the most part did quite the opposite. He seemed much unprepared and did not keep any eye contact with the governor, Bill Lehrer and the audience. He seemed he would rather be any other place than at that moment than the presidential debate. Even though President Barack Obama did not portray much confidence, he made some great points on how he would handle things. Looking closely at the debate both candidates Governor Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama made some valid arguments and points. At the End of the debate Governor Mitt Romney won the debate because of how he presented his arguments and answered his question. I believe that Mitt Romney walked away victorious after the debate. I felt that he was the more confident one out of the two. Every time he would respond to a question, he was looking directly at President Obama, or at the moderator, Jim Lehrer. ...read more.


He looked very confident and convinced while President Obama looked a little bit perplexed. Nevertheless, I do not think that Romney was outstanding; he did defend his ideas more convincingly than Obama did but he did not explain in detail how he would carry out all the plans he talked about. If voters were unsure whom they were going to vote for, after watching the debate I think that a majority of them now know whom they will vote for. In the conclusion, after watching my first presidential debate, I found that it was very interesting the way each candidate answered the questions they were asked. Also, how each president pretty much attacked each other when they had different opinions or ideas about the future of our country. Overall the Presidential Debate was worth the time to watched, at least now I know whom I trust to be the president of the United States. I vote for Mitt Romney. ...read more.
