    Good Interview – I can only HOPE that republicans, NOT the Republican Party, can take heart in who they vote for in the Presidential and follow-on congressional elections, that the GOP and the Tea Party only have the Rich folks in mind when making policy decisions. After all, it is the Rich that put their money in front of them in the form of PAC Contributions. After all, they can only provide support for the people who provide their support. GOP is still and always will the Good Ol Boys White Club.

    Dear Wolf Blitzer, So that there is clarification for everyone, I've listened enough to David Gergen to believe that he should simply be a Republican commentator. This is no shame on his part; it's merely a means to make his partisanship lucid.

    After watching 60 Minutes and also Warren Buffett, it’s clear that the US will never be in good financial condition until we have and enforce a fair and balanced tax system that applies to everyone.
    Allowing the super rich and/or corporations to make huge sums of money in this country then cart it away to another country and hoard it away for tax evasion purposes does not make sense.

    RON PAUL IS ABSOLUTELY THE MOST VIABLE AND HONEST CANDIDATE RUNNING ON THE REPUBLICAN TICKET. TOO BAD THE GOP DOES NOT RECOGNIZE HIS VALUE. GLAD TO SEE CNN IS FINALLY MENTIONING HIM.

      Why do people who like Ron Paul act like he's "the new thing" and that he never gets any press? "GLAD TO SEE CNN IS FINALLY MENTIONING HIM."

      First of all, are you that bipolar you have to type in all caps, as if, you yourself feel under appreciated and that your unoriginal Ron Paul comment will get passed by because you didn't type in all caps?

      Second, "FINALLY"? Ron Paul is all over the news. He was all over the news in 2008. He made a lot of progress trying to get independent parties more press coverage so they could join the presidential debates. He's a likeable guy but he is a libertarian and possibly racist (as is his son) or at least prejudice. Libertarian policy is agreeable at some parts but I don't agree with the fiscal stuff. Libertarians act like we can all go back to the 1950's when people were enjoying living moderately after the World War II and beating their wives saying "Cook me dinner and the baby is crying, go take care of it." Sorry, but the 1950's are over and we have to provide real solutions. If Ron Paul would have it, he would have us in a short depression than a long recession. The thing is, depressions hurt real, real bad. I'm not sure Paul really knows what he is saying when he says things like this.

    The whole world is watching the behavior of the people in your beautiful country, the UNITED STATES of AMERICA.
    It is so VERY SHAMEFUL that about 90% of the USA people are such RACIST and PREJUDICE idiots!
    President Obama is a very intelligent and VERY wise man. The first one in a long time, the only one smart enough to pull the US out of the pits of political hell. The people would have no problem if he were all white (not only 1/2 white). The people are willing to throw the country in the toilet and have twits the likes of Pailin run.
    The Racist pigs better wake up before they destroy their beautiful country!
    All the rest of the world knows the BIGGEST problem your country has is RACISM.
    SHAME!!!!

    A professional newsman asks tough questions, but never, never interrupts the President of the United States.
