Yvette Carnell: Enough is Enough, It’s Time For Undecided Voters to Get Off the Fence
by Yvette Carnell
Before last night, undecided voters could make the case that both candidates had won one debate, so there was still reason enough for them to waffle on who they’d cast their vote for come November 6th. But last night, President Obama did to Romney what Romney did to Obama in the first debate. He defeated Romney handily. And he defeated him on policy points, not just style.
During the debate, an unsteady and sweaty Mitt Romney sat idly as Obama lambasted his charge that the Navy was underfunded: ”Well, Governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets.” Obama also chided Romney for “air brushing” his previous record. How did Romney respond? By congratulating the president and agreeing with him at every turn, then tryingto reinvent himself for the umpteenth time, but President Obama was having none of it.
“Governor Romney, I’m glad that you agree that we have been successful in going after al Qaeda,” he said, “but I have to tell you that, you know, your strategy previously has been one that has been all over the map and is not designed to keep Americans safe or to build on the opportunities that exist in the Middle East.”
President Obama reminded voters that Romney has been “all over the map” on foreign affairs issues and, unlike the first debate, Obama wouldn’t allow last night’s Mitt Romney to escape all Romney’s previous reinventions. Truth is, as the president reminded voters last night, Romney has been more wrong than he has been right about, well, everything. Wrong on bailouts. Wrong on Russia. Wrong on Osama bin Laden.
So the question must now be posed to the undecideds: What are you waiting for? Romney revealed himself last night as incompetent and not ready to serve the country in any capacity, let alone commander in chief. It’s time to come off the fence and into the real world here. Romney is not a viable option to replace President Obama. We know you may be disappointed with Obama, so am I. But the Republicans picked, as their nominee, a man who is far worse than Obama on substance and integrity. They left you with no choice but to give President Obama one more shot. Time to get off the fence and do what you know you must: vote for Obama.
