    Question Wolf if Romney platform is Ryan platform, then why not have Ryan run for president, because Romney dose not have a clue how he is going to run the country he has to bring his wife and CEO of Bain capital who made the the money for Romney, in fact he starring to sound a like Sarah Plain,( she better looking then him).

    When you look at the comments it`s obviuos Democratic voters don`t have a clue about the facts and they surely are not going to get them from CNN. Common sense folks does Ryan hate his own mother and why didn`t Obama say Joe Soptic`s wife would have been taken care of under Obamacare. Who is the only President in history to cut Medicare. Remember waste means to Obama you don`t need that third test. My wife had a bilateral masectomy and the cancer was found on the third test. CNN used to be the # 1 in cable news now because they refuse to report all the facts they are scraping bottom. Nothing has worked maybe try honesty.

    Too bad no one on this post bothers to thoroughly research for accurate information especially regarding medicare. As usual, bleeding heart liberals stoop to emotionality, name calling, and party rhetoric. Will you all ever tire of it and actually seriously consider the facts? Or do you all prefer to hide among the ignorant, shutting out any semblance of truth and embracing only what fits your professed beliefs. Speaking of cartoon characters, the clown that's currently in the white house is probably the scariest president we have had thus far in America's history!

    Romney the king of outsourcing,and Ryan the killer of medicare, social security, medicate, this give more tax cut to favor the Rich. If you want to have this benefits when you become a senior, sooner or later, you will need medicare and social security, even if your like Wolf have a fat retirement from CNN, but at age 65 he has to sign up with medicare and social security because all the heath insurance company will drop him at age 65. Do not be fool by the GOP, vote for Obama at lease he will fight to keep this benefits and vote against the the do nothing GOP!
