As usual, I will be consulting FactCheck.org tomorrow rather than relying on reporters to tell me who was accurate in their arguments.
Three observations I have made through the years are that
1) no one is ever able to accomplish what is promised during the campaign;
2) very few specifics are ever delineated; and
3) Voting records can be distorted to say whatever a person's opponent is trying to say.
That means that my vote is cast for the person whose fundamental principles are most closely aligned with my own. While that can be difficult to discern through the lenses of mainstream media, it is possible.
I'm looking forward to the next two debates.
In the meantime, this blog will return to much more pressing matters such as recipes, toddlers learning about when it is appropriate to go potty outside, and the world's shortest basketball player. Stay tuned.
