Who Do You Trust?

You have to love Vice President Joe Biden for making the case for the Obama-Biden ticket with gusto during the 90-minute televised debate last night. He stayed engaged and didn’t miss a single opportunity to “teach”. He reminded the voters of the weaknesses of the Romney-Ryan positions on healthcare, defense, tax reform, foreign policy and recalled his experience as a knowledgeable policy maker. It was a joust between an experienced political, policy leader and a newcomer with a few ideas.

And for those who suggest that the debate was a tie, it wasn’t even a close. Ryan resorted to anecdotes and Biden discussed reality. As stimulating as watching and listening to the vice presidential debate was, I am reminded the election is about the leadership, integrity and policy of the candidates. Ryan has “adopted” a new position on abortion and Romney has changed his position on everything from healthcare to Wall Street. In fact, it’s hard to keep track of what he believes because he changes his positions so much.

Debate or no debate; post political pundit evaluations or not; keeping track of the coverage or not; you should vote for the candidate who grasps and acts with a breadth and depth of understanding the challenges that many Americans face. In the Biden’s words, “who do you trust?’

Election Day is one day that counts for four years. Don’t miss the opportunity to make your voice and your vote count.

    I don’t trust anyone who consistently makes grammatical mistakes. It’s “whom do you trust”, not “who do you trust.” 🙂
    Seriously, I missed half of the debate but didn’t get the same sense as you. Most of the polls today had Ryan slightly ahead, with VP Biden getting demerits for bad behavior. It seems like a wash to me, not the knockout VP Biden wanted.
