  1. Although I watched the whole debate only for 45 minutes, I still noticed a difference in the way Governor Romney and President Obama tried to bring their message across. Governor Romney uses less formal language. His expressions are easier to understand and I sometimes feel as if he is speaking to me personally. President Obama’s language is alot more formal and harder to understand. One way he states his positions is by repeating several times is that he is commander in chief. He points out that he is in charge and that he as to make difficult decisions as president. By doing this, he creates a barrier between him and Romney. He also uses facts that can be proven to get the audience to vote for him.
