    Paul Ryan implies that they don't tell details of plans so they can better negotiate with congress. Then why did he sign pledge with Grover Norquist? That most certainly did not help in negotiating.

    As awkward, clumsy, and incompetent as Mitt Romney has proven himself to be, the republican strategists must be pulling their hair out just trying to get him to understand when he should speak and when he should shut-up. The truth is Mitt Romney is woefully out-matched by President Obama, especially in the arena of foreign relations. He isn't even a good protege. He seems to think that the fact that he has made some money will compensate for all of his short comings. Someone sold him on that fiction... thus the constant reference to how much business experience he has. Guess what! The United States government is not a private equity fund. You cannot swap debt for letter-stock. Once you acquire the debt it has to be managed, not discarded through bankruptcy. Mitt Romney has no experience in this area of business, apart from his dismal performance as governor of Massachusetts, where his state ranked number 47 out of a possible 50 in job creation. Voting Romney into office would be the biggest, most disastrous mistake the American people ever made. If they think he can simply wave a magic wand and make all the pain go away.. they may as well vote for Bernie Madoff.

    Romney and Ryan support the Mayor of Chicago on the teacher strike. No wonder they're worried. For crying out loud support Public Education and the resources the teacher's need to teach the kids and not just in Chicago. End PL 107-110 and not every little one is a Govt. Test taker. This strike isn't a choice ! It's called Individualized Accountability and see Hillary Clinton.Privatization of Public Education is not going over with American citizens any more than NCLB. Down ,ready set.......head for the 49 yard line and so far the teacher's are on the 6 yard line. Meet all demands today and give the teacher's what they want to teach their students please. Does a politician have a degree in education teaching your child in the classroom to know what is needed ? Support the Chicago teacher's ! Read the concept on drones service Public Education ? 450,000 at a cost of say what ? Do you think we need to make sure all students have books and resources first ? Does the copy machine work today ? Where are they spending the money for your child in America attending Public Education ? This isn't a Republican/ Democratic issue and it's an all call for American Public Education in need of support across the country.We need Hillary Clinton to call the Mayor of Chicago. Obama and Dr. Race To The Top aren't taking sides yet. There is a solution ! Give the school teacher's what they want to support their students.So far they have 6 of their requests out of 49 ? Mr. Blitizer,we need some coverage on the details and let's hear about those 49 requests. Are they unreasonable requests ? How much are the drones to service Public Education costing ? 450,000 drones ? One spits out rapid reading and math while the other follows your kid home from school. The next one will fly around the classroom to make sure your kid isn't cheating on the Govt. test. Are we ready for the Cyber Public School Buildings in America ? I'll take a rain check but thanks anyway !

    If they're not, they should be... If you go back, I said obama would get a bigger bounce.

    Throwing a three nighter and all that is left after the party is "I like my mom," will not and should not win the white house.

    We now live in an entitlement society, the economy will mean nothing to those who are actually unemployed.

    Those employed will vote Romney, those who are not will vote obama.
