I didn't see the Presidential debate yesterday on live television but I did see it on Youtube and I have to say I disagree with Mitt Romney on the point that raising taxes will hurt the economy and fail to reduce the deficit. I'm sure he believes it but I don't!

President Obama believes a more balanced approach of raising taxes on the wealthy and spending cuts are what's needed; I agree. I don't see how any alternative solution will work to reduce debt and deficit. Despite the recession, unemployment has been inching down at a maddening slow rate but it's been trending in that direction, but it's going to take some time considering that this financial crisis is a global pandemic affecting just about everything around the world. The best way to avoid another economic catastrophe like the one we were just in is to allow significant government oversight of big banks and financial institutions, as it was this sector that got us in this mess in the first place!

I don't measure the champion of a debate with body posturing and slick words. I measure him by the use of valid facts and honest proposals/solutions.

I understand that Mitt Romney needs to drum up support among Republican voters but his solutions (which include expanding the military) just didn't resonate with me.

My prediction:

Obama/Biden . . . 51%
Romney/Ryan . . . 47%
Other . . . . . . 2%
