Did the televised Louisiana US Senate Race, anxiously awaited by thousands, meet the expectations of two of the state's most politically-savvy experts? What were their disappointments, if any?
It’s interesting how six years and a comparatively inferior electoral position can change the tune of Democrat Sen. Mary Landrieu as she finds out what life’s like being the underdog.
The second presidential debate did little to shed new light on either candidate. For President Obama he gave his campaign stump speech in answer to every question he was asked. Mitt Romney gave his most compelling argument in favor of defeating the president by saying the American people can do better.
Who won tonight's Presidential debate between Governor Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama?
The second Presidential debate between President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney is now history. It covers numerous issues ranging from the budget, the US debt, violence in America, abortion and women's rights, terrorism including the most recent terrorists attacks in Libya.
The tragic murder of four Americans, including our Ambassador Christopher Stevens, in Benghazi, Libya on September 11 has never been adequately explained by the Obama administration.
Unlike the Presidential debate which was a clear victory for Mitt Romney, the Vice-Presidential debate was not so clear cut.
I guess we can put the newspaper battles being raged between The Advocate and the Times Picayune into the area of politics since, in reality, to some extent, the futures of South Louisiana, New Orleans area and Baton Rouge could be shaped by the paper war.
You know you have a die-hard interest in politics when you want to see the national presidential debate, and it becomes a major commitment just to find a place to watch. That was my case last week while I was in southern Turkey as the Turkish conflict with Syria was heating up. I had limited television options and just could not tune into one of the U.S. national networks, or even CNN International. And even if I could find a station, the time difference meant I would be watching at 3:00 am. No such stations beaming into Turkey could be found. Apparently, we are not as important in this part of the world as many in Washington think.
The Presidential debate between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama Wednesday night featured economic issues including healthcare, the economy, the national debt and even Big Bird of PBS.
Now that the first debate is history, the question might be not just who won but what happens next due to the debate?.
