I couldn’t listen to the Presidential debate between Romney and Obama for longer than 3 minutes before I decided the whole conversation was not going to help me understand what these two candidates really intend to do as President. I was not surprised either.
Since I don’t have the keenest political mind either, I wouldn’t trust myself to follow their conversation and know which statements are true, are misleading, or completely wrong. So today I read the rather insightful review on FactCheck.org. I like how the first part of the review gives a quick summary of the main points, and then goes on to explain the detail and background behind each point. Both candidates exaggerated the past statements of the candidate and the view represented. Which also seems to be true of all the TV commercials. I hope people don’t really listen to the candidates to decide who is the better candidate and what each one is really proposing for new policy; better listen to the expert analysts instead.
