    Geithner on the hunt for US support for more IMF Funds they call a FIREWALL ? Okay,cut the fraud and govt. waste and take 1% of that to help them out. The US has their own crisis and it's Obama's economic policy and regulation. Get the Federal Govt. out of the people's way and stop destroying the 99%.

    How much is the "Fire Wall ","Rescue Fund" going to cost tax payer's in the USA to support that Mr. Geithner is a fan of ? 1 trillion for the Fire Wall or $500 billion,just new crisis fighting money ...? How bout a crisis fighting president with an economic plan ! Go Ron Paul ! Add up the stimulus money spent on Solyndra,Ener Del,Evergreen Solor and Beacon Power Corp. and they're filing for bank ruptsy. Grant money+ Senator Lugar on 6.5 million Congressional earmarks fro EnerDel 118.5 million grant and the DOE gets involved with Steven Chu.

    "Ron Paul's Predictions 2002 Come True" not so funny reality ! How much has Obama spent on stimulus adding up all the corporations filing for bank ruptsy ? Solyndra,Ener Del,Evergreen Solar,Beacon Power Corp. = what ? "A Change Is Gonna Come..." Peace, Liberty and common sense economics For Ron Paul ! Does Mr.Geithner have a plan that we can hear that's not so politically correct in generalities it makes no sense ? Can we get the 1,2,3 of it at the World Economic Forum in plain economic English ? Senator Lugar 6.5 million Congressional ear marks for Ener Del and 118.5 million in grants along with the DOE ? Chew that a while !

    "Well I'm getting to be quite the entertainer, Wolfi. I did it again at the senior center, yesterday."
    Ron is also quite the entertainer also. You need one in the whitehouse, it's so depressing there, from those bombing-obama's.".

    Ron Paul is the person to run agaist obama.He is a lot smarter than a lot of people give him credit for.He doesn't give double talk so give him the same equal time you are giving the other 3.He is right about social security.Put it back into the trust fund where the knuckle heads can't touch it and make the back what it owes.Their free ride is over.Jim Thomas Phx.Az.

    I somewhat agree with Gerald, to much time wasted with the 2 so called front runners wasting time on personal matters.. He said she said! I have to say you did give Ron Paul a fair shake this time, my hat is off to you for that.. Thank You

    I noticed the smile left your face instantly when he reminded you about the age discrimination laws Wolf. I think Dr. Paul has more on the ball than you give him credit for.

    Mr. Blitzer, the wife and I watched the Florida debate with great interest and awe. We saw 4 people on stage. But, 2 were only occasionally invited to join in the debate. Is this equality for all who run or, for the ones CNN deems "electable"?
