Girdler praises Romney; pundits say Obama won


Somerset —

“I don’t believe he has a weak point,” said Girdler of Romney. “I think that he’s one of the most well-rounded candidates we’ve had in a long time. As long as he’s able to maintain his professionalism and civility and talk about his background in business, he’ll be fine.
“Government does not create jobs; business does,” added Girdler, echoing Romney’s push for employment to be the main sticking point of the campaign. “If he can get that message out there and get people out to work, he’ll be fine.”
For a Democratic perspective, Young Pulaski Democrat president Halyn Roth was contacted by the Commonwealth Journal, as he has been for the previous two debates (including the Joe Biden-Paul Ryan debate at Centre College), but the call was not immediately returned.
