    Dear CNN Folks,
    Why do we need to see Mitt Romney unpleasant face on every single break during DNC convention?

      COME ON WOLF, I'm sitting here watching you throw softballs to these Scranton public employees and yelling at the TV! Why aren't you asking these people how much they've contributed to their Health care plans and retirement plans over the last few years? Thats why all these towns are going bankrupt! Their unions have bled these communities dry for years by not kicking in 1 dime toward their plans like the rest of us working stiffs have been doing for years!!!! WAKE UP WOLF and start addressing the causes of these problems.

    Wolf, I am sick and tired of the sensational news for ratings. Showing the Afghanistan women being shot to death on live TV is something I when i was a kid never had to see. Do you realize what you are doing showing these atrosities? I came from the era of no TV, no internet, and played outside with my school friends. What do you think you are gaining by such awaul tv
    not happening in America to the children of America. Watching that I did not learn anything. I have been over in those thired world countries and they will never change, never.

    I realize that tough times have hit News Programs and subsequently forced you to reclassify yourselves as entertainers as opposed to journalists. But when will you realize that the polarization of this country is and has been the result of all the opinion that has replaced journalism and facts. I just refuse to believe that it's worth it to spend 5,000 for opinion (political analyst) rather than spending more for facts. Until this changes, I will keep searching for real news and turning these entertainers off. It's not even entertaining, but maybe instead of political donations I can send you money to get facts. It would be much better for this country as long as it's not for tipping the dancing bears!

    The GOP is back to it old tricks and will burn any body who stand in their way, and they will try to steal the election, after all they were successful with Bush.

      This is a particularly interesting post, being that the one who is in office now, could not even produce a birth certificate until well after he was elected. This should have been a red flag from the get go, Manning. Reason being, it clearly states in the constitution that one has to be a natural born citizen at the age of at least 35, to run for the office of President. However, your communist president did not have to prove either one to become elected. I think you got payback on the free world representatives, and your president has proved he is aligned with every value that is the exact opposite of what the United States was founded on, you should be proud of your vote.You and Mr. Blitzer ought to get together one evening after the next election, and cry over a beer, thinking about the glory days when your President almost undermined everything this glorious country stands for. Good day Sir.

    "So if this is a Witch hunt, which lie is not being told She's a Democrate, so why should she mtell the truth. You're doing the same as Obama want's CNN to do. Doing an internal investigation, an asking only leading questions that favor Obama!"

    Wolf: This is one House Member who Chairs the House Judical Committee 15 minutes of fame. Eric Holder has given all the information requested by the committee. If the entire House vote for contempt it just goes to prove that the Republican controlled House does not have anything to do. Republicans have not gotten over Watergate, and neither has this nation. This witch hunt is just a political move by stupid Republicans.

    Can't wait until this national embarrassment Wasserman Schultz and the national disaster Obama slip quietly into permanent retirement. Then our country can begin to heal from the damage. Debbie has been the most divisive member of Congress and the voters have had enough. If you want to help retire Debbie for good then support Joe Kaufman for congress. http://www.kaufmanforcongress.com

      I encourage people to research Joe Kaufmann, a super-Zionist who regularly trashes Muslims, and who has no chance to beat Wasserman, who is extremely popular in her liberal district. It's always good when right-wingers unwittingly shoot themselves in the foot by exposing the more deluded characters among their ranks.

    Wolf, Attorney general Holder is back man and is why Isa went on a witch hunt, no matter how much documents deliver to them, they wanted more and more. Isa have made big browning points with the GOP. The house will vote 100% straight party lines, and they will have big smile on their faces, and call this American justices,

    Holder did blame Bush for fast and furious. When Issa asked Holder to present documents to prove it, Holder was forced to admit it was a lie and then retracted his statement. So you can continue the false ruse of blaming Bush, this time it's all on Obama and Holder. What did the president know, and when did he know it? We want to know the truth.

    It is obvious that what Isa and the Republican House are engaged in is a witch hunt. If it wasn't a "witch hunt" they would have publicly questioned those who ran the program during President Busch administration to highlight similarities and differences.
