I Hope You're Ready Mitt


President Obama is a Harvard educated lawyer.  Most lawyers I know will debate you for 20 minutes on something as simple as the best choice of mayonnaise just for the fun of it.  He taught Constitutional Law at the University of Chicago Law School.  Let’s face it, President Obama knows how to debate and his positions are based on facts.  He took it easy on Willard Romney in the first debate. Instead of accepting that gift gracefully, Romney went on the attack. 

In this second debate, I fully expect President Obama to say all of the things we wanted to hear from him a few weeks ago.  I fully expect him to speak up for women who would have their reproductive health jeopardized under his opponent’s administration.  It is absolutely appalling to think about the possibility of Roe vs. Wade being overturned. Or to think about young women in Our America being unable to access birth control.  I expect him to point out that the 47% votes.  And that we DO accept personal responsibility for our lives.  We have not forgotten about the video… We don’t find anything funny about your statement that you would have a better chance of winning the election if your parents were Mexican.  Seriously Willard, look around you… if you really believe Latinos in America have it easier than you then you are even more out of touch than I thought.

This semi-moderate persona that Willard has switched to in the past couple of weeks is too little too late.  I expect President Obama to talk about how the unemployment rate has improved, clear up the misinformation Mitt spouts about Medicare, and to point out the lack of information about his tax plan and how it will impact the middle class.

Am I expecting too much from one debate? I don’t think I am.  I hope you’re ready for this Willard. It’s not going to be pretty.
