Bermudian Student Attending Presidential Debate

October 22, 2012

As locals tune in to watch the third and final Presidential debate between President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney this evening [Oct 21], at least one Bermudian will be present in the actual audience.

Amanda Spencer is a student at Lynn University in Boca Raton, Florida where the debate will be held, and won her ticket in a lottery held for the students.

Ms Spencer only found out last night she was one of the lucky ticket winners, and speaking to her afterwards she said she was extremely excited to be able to attend such a big event.

The 20-year-old student described the atmosphere at the school as “crazy” with a “huge transformation” taking place on campus, with media arriving in droves and security procedures being put in place.

She said there are other Bermudians who attend the school, but to her knowledge she is the only Bermudian who obtained one of the coveted tickets.

    Bermudians are more involved/ interested in American politics vs. Bermudian smh. call the election already!!

    • Little do you know that Bermudas future hinges on the out come of the next Presidental election in the United States of America and frankly I dont think we can see a date being set for our own election until we see the election outcome in the first week of November,this election has more pressure on it when it comes to current world affairs then most people are willing to sit down and educate themselves.

      The world has evolved in such a way that it has lined itself up with Biblical Prohpetic history thta must come to past and our current Presidental leader and candidate find themselve dead smack in the middle of some of the most historic events that are unfolding and not being released by international media and is soon to be in our face on the world stage.

      Scaremongering is the least that could be said at this stage for critics but reality of where the future of Americas economic climate hinges on the decisions made on November 6th and beyond and yes it is important for us in Bermuda to pay very close attention as the United States begins to sneeze we always catch the cold.

      So Amanda we know that you will take to heart much of what you will hear in this fierce battle between the Presidental hopefuls as they deal with foreign affairs.I will say catergoricaly I do not support the Presidental candidate who does not support Israel.

        Haha wow.

        Care to expand on your baseless statement that

        “he world has evolved in such a way that it has lined itself up with Biblical Prohpetic history thta must come to past and our current Presidental leader and candidate find themselve dead smack in the middle of some of the most historic events that are unfolding and not being released by international media and is soon to be in our face on the world stage.he world has evolved in such a way that it has lined itself up with Biblical Prohpetic history thta must come to past and our current Presidental leader and candidate find themselve dead smack in the middle of some of the most historic events that are unfolding and not being released by international media and is soon to be in our face on the world stage.”

        Because you sound like a conspiracy knut.

        Since I can tell you are clearly deeply religious and use that to make your opinions, it will give you comfort knowing that no matter what anyone alive does, it will all happen according to god’s divine plan, so just sit back and keep to yourself.

        • when you ignore ignorance it normally goes away,I dont really have an issue with defending my statements but in this case I wont bother as I do have a serious issue with folk that hide behind pen names,if you are to be trusted or even listen to it is far better to stand behind a conviction with your identity in check then to hide behind a name sounding stupid.

    You know what’s ridiculous? Getting excited about and supporting a man who is consistently throwing darts at Bermuda as a dirty “tax haven” and who (in collusion with Ewart Brown) blatantly disregarded our constitutional laws by sending four Uighurs here, because getting them out of the U.S. was one of his campaign promises.

    That’s what’s ridiculous!
