Last Night’s Debate

I watched the U.S. Presidential Debate last night. Even though I’m not American, I found it super interesting and intense.

Afterwards, I had a mini-debate with a friend of mine. His main argument was that Obama made the deficit worse.


Naturally, I thought of this.

People, people, people. A lot of things are being blamed on Obama. Well, I don’t think that’s fair. In 2008 when Obama began his term, he was greeted by a shitstorm. I think that shitstorm might even be an understatement. He had to deal with money lost on two wars. Oh, and let’s not forget the economic meltdown via the banks.

So, when people say that Obama made things worse, I challenge you people. How can we truly measure the effectiveness and successes of his term, when he didn’t have a fresh plate to begin with? How do we know that things didn’t just get gradually worse, with or without him?

The next few weeks are going to be intense. If you’re American, I urge you to carefully consider your options. I won’t tell you who to vote for. But, I will tell you that this is one of the most important decisions you’ll ever have to make. This time (especially with the shitty economy) is critical.

So, sit down. Grab a pen and piece of paper. And make a list. Make sure you understand exactly what each candidate is promising you. Once you understand what they want to do, think about whether their ideas are realistic. Are they genuine? Have they put a lot of thought into this? Do they understand what they’re going to do, and how they’re going to do it?

Pick the candidate that is realistic. Pick the one who knows what they’re doing and how to do it. Don’t be deceived by cheery smiles and grand gestures. Talk is cheap, remember?

Oh and I have just one question to Gov. Romney. What pipeline from Canada?!

P.S. Binders full of women. If you like it, put three rings on it!
