Con

Obama should not get a second term because he has failed to fix the economy. His economic policies have made the economy worse. He added $5 trillion to the deficit. He increased taxes in his health care plan and added thousands of regulations on businesses. He also broke a big promise. Obama said he was going to cut taxes for the middle class which he has not done. He spent a few trillion dollars in four years more than Bush spent in 8 years. The economy is worse now than when Obama first took office. Mitt Romney would be a great president. He would cut taxes across the board. He would also cut spending which would control the deficit and he would cut regulations on businesses. Mitt Romney be a lot better than Obama as president.

Thanks for the debate, broseph.

Resolution Analysis

The resolution clealy states, "Obama should not get a second term." I am arguing the Pro side that 'Obama should not get a second term'. My opponent is arguing the Con side that 'Obama should get a second term'. So far he has argued for the Pro side of this resolution, and for that I thank him.



Obama should not get a second term

Economics

Barack Obama, as my opponent stated, has added $5 Trillion to the debt.* Under this Keynesian fiscal and monetary policy, it is likely that the economy will continue to perform sluggishly. [http://mises.org...]

Warfare

From a mild-mannered, anti-war law professor, Barack Obama has become one of the most internationally hated men in the world. [http://www.washingtontimes.com...]

Liberty

In the 2012 NDAA, Obama attempted to pass a section that would allow for the indefinite detention of American civilians, which is in direct contradiction to the Bill of Rights.

Rhetorical Skills

Not only is Obama unpersuasive and unattractive (See: video), he is a terrible speaker in general through using many vocal fillers per speech and "according to a communication agency, he speaks in a sing-song kind manner and sounds aloof. His more emphasis is towards script and teleprompter though he never got any professional training for using it. Apart from his behavioral flaws, some of his speeches suffer from minor communication flaws. He often makes gaffes while speaking spontaneously. These are so many communication flaws that a famous political figure must never have." [http://www.smashinglists.com...]

I am God

I am God and my will "shall be done!" Obama should not be reelected because it conflicts with my will, and hundreds of newly-made Pakistani orphans were praying for it. K thx bye.

Your move, Holy Man.

Reasons for voting decision: Obviously there was a mix up with the resolution, which was unfortunate for Con--but he still could have attempted to defend his side of the debate regardless, which he did not. Pro gets the points for this one.
