Tie Goes to the Runner

Did you watch the debate last night?  I only caught the first hour, which seemed like the least interesting.  The best part of the first hour was Obama’s angry glare, as if he was trying to make Romney’s head burst into flames.

Who won?

Well, Romney didn’t lose, and in this sort of race, a tie goes to the challenger.  He looked calm and presidential, and managed to thwart the “crazed Republican cowboy diplomacy” meme.  We’ll see how the polls change over the next few days, but I’m feeling generally positive about the debate.


About Mystic Cowgirl

I worked overseas in the aid game for longer than I'd like to admit and learned several important things: 1) Third World countries aren't poor because America is rich. They're impoverished due to socialist governments that provide neither rule of law nor basic infrastructures; 2) These socialist governments redistribute wealth from taxpayers to the government workers. There's no benefit to the poor or downtrodden, and certainly not to the general welfare in terms of infrastructure improvements. 3) America is moving toward the Third World model. Rule of law has been subverted because equality under the law is disappearing as special interests carve out exemptions to regulations and special favors under the law. The redistribution of wealth to government began decades ago -- total compensation for government employees now outpaces salaries in the private sector.
