First of all, I thought Mitt Romney was kissing a lot of major a** with President Obama at the final debate. At the last debate, both candidates were aggressive, passionate and very matter-of-fact. This time around President Obama was poised and focused, while Romney was distracted and confused. So the perplexed candidate listened carefully to the incumbent through all topics from Syria to Iran and failed to come up with any original opinions and focused on what President Obama had to say and Romney basically copy/pasted everything Obama said.
It seems that Romney has been a part of this presidential race for so long he has forgotten everything that he’s stood for and has now joined the Democratic party. Once Romney started sweating and agreeing with President Obama, I was convinced that this time around, Romney wasn’t prepared and was two questions away from throwing in the towel. There were very specific points where Romney couldn’t help but agree with President Obama. That’s not a good sign, Romney. Maybe his mind was on bayonets, Big Bird and a binder full of women?
Check out all the reasons you should vote for President Obama (these also happen to be the reasons Mitt Romney is voting for Obama as well.)
“And you know, Governor Romney, I’m glad that you agree that we have been successful in going after al-Qaida, but I have to tell you that, you know, your strategy previously has been one that has been all over the map and is not designed to keep Americans safe or to build on the opportunities that exist in the Middle East.” -President Obama
2. Aiding Rebels In Syria
“Recognize I believe that Assad must go. I believe he will go. But I believe we want to make sure that we have the relationships of friendship with the people that take his place such that in the years to come we see Syria as a — as a friend and Syria as a responsible party in the Middle East. This — this is a critical opportunity for America.” -Romney

3. Relationship With Israel
Remember–Israel is one of our allies and Obama wants to stick by them, so does Romney. “Well, first of all, I — I want to underscore the — the same point the president made, which is that if I’m president of the United States, when I’m president of the United States, we will stand with Israel. And — and if Israel is attacked, we have their back, not just diplomatically, not just culturally, but militarily. That’s number one.” -Romney
4. Sanctions With Iran
“Number two, something I would add today is I would tighten those sanctions. I would say that ships that carry Iranian oil can’t come into our ports. I imagine the EU would agree with us as well. Not only ships couldn’t, I’d say companies that are moving their oil can’t, people who are trading in their oil can’t. I would tighten those sanctions further.” -Romney
“I’m glad that Governor Romney agrees with the steps that we’re taking. You know, there have been times, Governor, frankly, during the course of this campaign, where it sounded like you thought that you’d do the some things we did, but you’d say them louder and somehow that that would make a difference, and it turns out that the work involved in setting up these crippling sanctions is painstaking; it’s meticulous. We started from the day we got into office.” -Obama
5. Surge In Iraq
“Governor Romney, I’m glad that you recognize that al-Qaida’s a threat because a few months ago when you were asked, what’s the biggest geopolitical threat facing America, you said Russia — not al-Qaida, you said Russia. And the 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because, you know, the Cold War’s been over for 20 years.
But, Governor, when it comes to our foreign policy, you seem to want to import the foreign policies of the 1980s, just like the social policies of the 1950s and the economic policies of the 1920s. You say that you’re not interested in duplicating what happened in Iraq, but just a few weeks ago you said you think we should have more troops in Iraq right now.” -Obama
“I couldn’t agree more about going forward, but I certainly don’t want to go back to the policies of the last four years. The policies of the last four years have seen incomes in America decline every year for middle-income families, now down $4,300 during your term, 23 million Americans still struggling to find a good job. When you came into office, 32 million people on food stamps — today 47 million people on food stamps.” -Romney
