Obama Follows Presidential Debate With Speech at University of Wisconsin at Madison

In an effort to redeem himself after what many considered a loss at last night’s debates, President Barack Obama gave a spirited speech at the University of Wisconsin at Madison today.

According to CNN, 58 percent thought Republican candidate Mitt Romney was stronger during the first presidential debate, held October 3 at the University of Denver in Colorado.

In the typically Republican state of Wisconsin, Obama is currently leading 51.4 to 43.8, reports RealClearPolitics.com.

The beginning of Obama’s speech was a lot of rebuttal to things Romney said during the debate including repeatedly referring to him as “the guy on stage last night.”

He spoke about the economy and how it “grows from the middle out” meaning from the middle class, so if taxes for the middle class are cut they spend more money, leading to businesses hiring more people.

Obama discussed renewable energy and wanting to control more of this countries energy including wind and solar power as well as improving the gas mileage of vehicles and wanting to cut oil imports by 2020.

He also talked about education and said “education is the only reason I’m standing on this stage.”

He, of course, addressed Romney’s reference to cutting funding public television and made a joke saying “Thank goodness somebody is finally getting tough on Big Bird, it’s about time. We didn’t know that Big Bird was driving the federal deficit. But that’s what we heard last night,” Then when someone in the crowd yelled “Elmo,” he replied, “Elmo too? Elmo’s gotta watch out.”

"Obama discussed renewable energy and wanting to control more of this countries energy including wind and solar power as well as improving the gas mileage of vehicles and wanting to cut oil imports by 2020." And therein, my friends, is the heart of the problem with Obama. The Federal government was not empowered by the Constitution to "control" the many things Obama has laid his hands upon. In his youth, he was heavily influenced by a known communist and his policies most certainly reflect a socialist state of mind. Who would have ever thought in their wildest dreams that the Federal government would some day hold power over the automotive and banking industries to the extent that control of GM was turned over to a union or that the President could fire the president of one of the nation's largest banks? He has overseen billions of dollars being handed over to companies in the renewable energy sector only to quietly stand by as those same companies imploded in bankruptcy. He speaks eloquently and lies convincingly while doing so. Whatever a group is hoping to hear, Obama will not disappoint them. Talk; however, as we all know quite well, is cheap and a careful review of Obama's speeches to the faithful followers of hype will disclose he has been unable to deliver what he promises or proposes. Four years ago he managed to talk his way into the White House. The aforementioned review and study of his background, by anyone interested in the reality that is Oboma, will uncover the cold, hard fact that he is incapable of performing the duties of his office in a manner that reflects this country's history as free Republic. One need only read his published books to see into the mind of Obama. Once done, the reader will discover it is unconscionable to further consider voting for him.
