Barack Obama should not have won a second term as president because he has divided the nation greatly, he has increased the national debt, he proposed an unconstitutional health care act, and he lost the country's top credit rating. Do you accept my debate?
Deadlykris

Con

I accept your challenge. While I do not deny the proposed allegations against Obama, and do not intend to debate those points, I reject your conclusion that follows that he should not have won the election.

I hate it when people make a debate and then never follow up on it.

I guess my opponent thought this was some sort of "set it and forget it" deal. Not so.

In closing, I would like to say that no evidence was presented that President Obama won the election unfairly nor that he did not deserve to win. Therefore, any vote should, of necessity, go to Con for Pro's failure to meet burden of proof.

I think the only reason Obama won was because someone spead the rumor that Romney was going to cancel PBS, or as they put it, fire Big Bird.

Reasons for voting decision: Obviously a forfeit. Though I can understand OhioGary's frustration with an RFD on one of his debates, it seems unfair to retaliate this way. The RFD may not have been detailed, but it might have been honest.
