    I think right before the debate the President got the memo from the " " that he has to stand down do not challenge Romney because this is his turn now. Just like Hellary Clinton got the memo 4 years ago. President Obama received the memo, otherwise Obama would NOCK ROMNEY OUT. Let's be serious such important job like the President of the united states would be left in the hand of the people. There is a special reserve group that makes selection for the presidency not the american people.

    Democrats WILL take back the house and keep the senate. Why?? Because most informed American middle class people know that the republicans voted into office in 2010 (who lied about running on jobs) are responsible for a record number of filibusters and obstructing everything brought up for a vote. Case in point. Two bills for veterans ,right now is being blocked by one, I said one republican in the senate. And then with record debt, high unemployment, fiscal cliff coming they go on vacation again. That's two 1 month vacations in the last 3 months. They only really work about 150 days out of the year. So it is no wonder that this party is having a tough time with blacks, women, Latinos and the left wing!! Don't wonder why a majority of Americans blame the right wing tea baggers (justifiably) for nothing getting done in DC. It is the pledge not to the constitution but to Grover Norquist on taxes that binds you from doing the right thing for the country. So good luck in November when a fair amount of republican congressman and women will be unemployed and send Romney back to where ever his 5 houses are located.

    If Republican Governors are good and keen at handling healthcare business at the state level, why have they not done so before now and what fiscal evidence are there that they are actually taking the bull by the horn? It just sucks to realize that all that they are interested in is to get President Obama unelected for a second term. Being overly negative and pessimistic with their criticisms about everything that indicates growth about the economy makes them unpatriotic and insensitive to the needs of the nation save their political ambition. A Candidate that will say one thing with his cool friends and something else to the general public lack the credentials to lead the nation.

    The art of politics is the ability to get the poor to vote for you and the wealthy to fund your campaign by promising to protect each from the other. The reality of it is that neither party is going to do a damn thing to make your life better. In order for the government to spend money they first must take that money away from someone. The government has no money of it's own. If these politicians were such good managers of our money we would not be in debt up to our eyeballs right now.

    The only way America will ever recover from this debt crisis is to change the way the government does business. With these same politicians deciding the future policy nothing will ever change.

    1. In listening to President Clinton, the groups he listed that are part of the 47%/30% were right but he stopped to soon…the young military troops are using food stamps, food pantries, church groups, thrift shops, and Force Support Squadrons to help feed and take care of their families…but that’s “OK” they are part of the 47/30% that are takers!! “They can die to protect you” Governor Romney and Congressman Ryan…and your families. And we don’t pay them enough money to feed their children and pay their bills… Governor Romney and Congressman Ryan SHAME on YOU!

    There are several republicans in the house that are in deep trouble because of their stance on destroying Medicare first then SS. The Ryan so-called incomplete budget is a big reason for that with seniors.ran does not say how he and Romney will pay the $100 Billion/year for 22% of current seniors for the R/R voucher plan .romney and Ryan and Gingrich have all proposed the voucher for current seniors. The very healthy ones that are selected will cost Medicare $9500/year / senior until they get sick or get older at which time they will be dropped by HC insurance companies.this voucher plan is the new republican grand subsidy for HC insurance companies. GOODBYE MEDICARE! SS is next!
