Overall I came to the conclusion that Obama didn't really have a firm grasp on what he was talking about; in all of the years I've seen him speak publicly this was the first time I've ever seen him look nervous. It was almost painful to watch him get run over by Romney's verbal onslaught about how poorly his policies were impacting the country and how his first term in office hasn't improved the economy. I've never been a fan of Obama's policies, but Romney made it painfully clear why some feel the same way I do.
In between the beat down Romney administering, I had to witness him lie directly to the entire country. It's one thing to alter his policies slightly for the sake of a debate, it's another to tell me something I know isn't true. Refusing to acknowledge the $5 trillion tax cut he proposed and saying that he wouldn't cut education budgets simply aren't factual. You don't have to lie to me, I'm well aware of what your policies are, but for the love of Jim stop lying. He clearly can't keep you under control and you steamrolling over everything he said could possibly give him a heart attack.
At this point I don't care who becomes president, it's all going to be bad. I don't agree with Obama's policies and think they crush the middle class into oblivion; I agree more with Romney, but to be honest some of his policies scare me. Is it too late to bring back Ron Paul?
TL;DR It's my belief that whoever wins this election is going to destroy this country regardless of being a Republican or Democrat.
