I've just finished watching the last (thankfully) debate of this presidential campaign.
I just have a few thoughts. I felt that the president was mocking Governor Romney when he spoke about the size of the military saying that we had fewer ships than in years past, but we also have fewer horses. He also said that we have something called aircraft carriers where airplanes can land and take off. I felt that this was uncalled for. It's not necessary to speak down to, or mock, your opponent to get your point across.
After the first debate the president was criticized for not looking Romney in the eye. I think he overdid it this time, he just stared or at times, it seemed like he glared.
I am a little disappointed in Governor Romney. During the discussion about jobs being shipped to China, he should have mentioned that Jeffrey Imelt, the head of GE and also head of the president's jobs council, has sent one of GE's divisions' manufacturing jobs to China. I guess that's because he didn't ask my advice. I am glad though that he mentioned Solyndra and two car battery companies that received loans from us and are not producing. That was money wasted.
Now all we have to do is get through the next two weeks and while I would like to see our unemployment rate go down, I'd like to see it reported honestly by all states, not like the last time.
I wonder what the "October Surprise" will be.
