My main takeaway from the debate was that Romney really is weak on foreign policy and knowledge about the military.He memorized the basic talking points but it is obvious he has no real expertise.If he wins he will no doubt outsource foreign policy to the neocons.To me,Romney is Bush#2 with an economic slant.I wish he was more Bush#1 who actually knew how the world works.
Obama came across as a far superior candidate in this debate,although he continues to throw in too many political gotchas.It must be difficult to debate someone like Romney who changes his positions and denies things he has clearly said like about the auto bailout.
I wonder what type of candidate Romney would be if he was simply himself,but the fact that he has changed his positions and denied what he has clearly stated so often maybe tells you who he really is.He just comes across to me as a rich guy who wants to be president and will say or do anything to get there.
Obama,like him or not,at least has a consistent point of view and a core.
