REFLECTIONS ON THE FIRST PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE, 2012

Mitt Romney represented himself and his political ideology in a very sound manner. Romney spoke clearly and, for the most part, directly to the President while President Obama often compiled layers of words that rambled into a vague, poorly communicated idea, finding it undesirable to maintain connection with Governor Romney during the communication process. As with debate formats of this sort, details, such as President Obama indicated Governor Romney lacked, are difficult to unpack (how many pages was the Obama healthcare package?). Regarding direction, ideology and general agenda, Romney communicated confidently and clearly, alluding to accomplishments as Governor whereas Obama was vague, rambling and only able to manufacture references to imaginary successes based on the juggling of figures and “facts” surrounded by almost four years of a poorly handled presidency.

By way of commentary, I must say that Romney’s America is more consistent with the American exceptionalism of which we’ve benefitted as American citizens than is the deep seated change associated with Obama’s America. This particular presidential election is, more than any recently held, an ideological matter. In brief, the Romney candidacy is stressing reduced control and interference by the federal government while President Obama assumes high levels of federal control is desirable and instrumental in curing America’s ills. There have been shards of this perspective in the Democratic Party in the past but not to the extent we now see, and in some measure, experience (and will to a greater measure experience in a second Obama term). More than this, President Obama represents a hybrid democrat. There are ideological influences well outside the commonly held demoncratic approach toward building America. This is not your father’s democrat. Though, I must admit, this was not greatly evident in this debate focused on domestic and economic issues, there is a greater global connection that influences Obama decisions and policy. This is an ideological matter that, in my humble opinion, will prove detrimental for this nation.

Finally, I think it is safe to say that America has never achieved perfection in its efforts as a nation and Mitt Romney is not to be touted as the perfect candidate who will usher us into such an age. However, the reality that lies before the American public is an oval office occupied by Romney / Ryan or Obama / Biden. I trust the reality of the character and quality of these two men, biding for this great leadership position, will surface and the clarity needed to make the healthiest decision possible will, in fact, present itself through this and the two upcoming debates.
