Sadly the next president may be decided by people that are swayed by how one of them performs at a town hall meeting and not:
1. Which party took a budget surplus and turned it into a depression.
2. Which party led us into an unprovoked and unpaid for war and is looking for another chance to do the same thing.
3. Which party wants less regulation on businesses that helped us into the ditch.
4. Which party wants more regulation on women's bodies.
5. Which party will demolish Social Security.
6. Which party believes the emergency room = health care.
7. Which party wants more tax breaks for the wealthy.
8. Which party thinks government should prevent people from choosing who they can marry.
9. Which party thinks 47% of the people in this country are leeches.
10. Which party believes government should be used as a tool to impose religious dogma.
I could go on but the people that are reading this already knew these things and the people that might be influenced by the "performance" of the debaters rather than their policies probably stopped reading this a long time ago.
Sadly, all of the above is the reason many of them will vote for Mitt.

Perhaps 43 percent are completely ignorant of what is in the Constitution.
In the Constitution, all revenue and spending is authorized solely by Congress.
The Democrats took full control of all the purse strings of the government in January, 2007. When the Democrats took full control of all the purse strings of government:
The deficit was a declining 0.16 (that's zero point one six) trillion dollare. Since then the Democrats have increased the deficit by ONE THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED PERCENT;
The total debt was 5 trillion dollars. Since then the Democrats have more than tripled the debt to the 16 trillion dollars it is today, and there is no end in sight for this increase in our debt.
And, since Obama took office, the government has been unable to even generate a budget... even when the Democrats had a super majority in the Senate and dominant control of the House.
If you can't generate a budget, you don't have a goddam plan.
It's that simple.
What haven't they been able to generate a budget? You told us everything but.

I'd let a Reagan adviser explain, but I'd like to see what the current propaganda is.

War with Iran Is More Likely Under Romney, and It Would Be a Major War
Bret Stephens tries to persuade a “wavering voter” to support Romney by blatantly lying to him:
No, we will not have another war in the Middle East. Not even if President Romney orders Iran’s nuclear sites bombed to smithereens.
Stephens tries to pull this off by citing the example of Operation Desert Fox. That greatly understates what an attack on Iran would involve. Stephens wants to create the impression that war with Iran would be just a few days of air strikes and nothing more. The “wavering voter” might want to know that this is a preposterous scenario.
If Romney ordered an attack on Iran, it would take much longer than a few days. It would be a prolonged air campaign. The risks to Americans directly involved in the campaign and elsewhere would be great. Americans are weary of foreign wars mainly because they don’t want more American losses in unnecessary wars, and attacking Iran is the perfect example of an unnecessary war. There would be no legal pretext for such an attack. It would be illegal under international law, and most governments around the world would condemn it.

Romney did not earn his money as a businessman--he was/is a banker. The catchphrase "You didn't build that" would certainly apply to him...it's more a "You didn't build that; you leveraged it; mortgaged it; bankrupted it, and were paid for every single action." (You think Bernie Madoff is bitter?)

Honey, let me explain something. I almost never ask a question I don't already know the answer to, and then only to Bill Nye. You've stepped in a trap, now try and get out. I'll stand here and watch while you chew your leg off.

When you buy a house, or an apartment as you so inelegantly describe it, where does the money go? When you go on a vacation - aboard a nuclear submarine as I understand it - where does the money go? It must go somewhere? When you invade another country based on nothing, where does the money go? Into the sky? I don't have it. So where is it? You rascal you, you've been redistributing the wealth again, haven't you. And now you're complaining about what you did yourself. It's a good racket, if your opponent is a Beagle.

Unfortunately for you liberals that kind of misinformation is not working anymore. Pointing to a few failures by Bain does not diminish the many success stories. Private equity firms look for distressed companies to turn around thus making a profit in the process. Not all such attempts are successful. Only the naive think otherwise.

Most americans are seeing the truth of his efforts, not you of course.

Actions have consequences, which is something Michael Brutsch is just starting to learn.
Brutsch, aka "Violentacrez," was Reddit's biggest troll until Gawker exposed his true identify, revealing to the world the man behind questionable forums, such as r/creepshots -- a space dedicated to pictures of women unaware that their photographs had been taken.
Now that the 49-year-old from Arlington, Texas, has been outed, his behavior has caught up with him.
According to The Daily Dot, Brutsch was fired from his position at a financial services company less than 24 hours after Gawker editor Adrian Chen's exposé went live.
Before the article was published, Chen wrote that Brutsch pleaded with him not to reveal his identity, correctly fearing he would lose his job and his ability to provide for his family.
"My wife is disabled. I got a home and a mortgage, and if this hits the fan, I believe this will affect negatively on my employment," he told Gawker. "I do my job, go home watch TV, and go on the internet. I just like riling people up in my spare time."
In a phone conversation, Brutsch admitted to being the Reddit user named Violentacrez, who created or moderated sections dedicated to pornographic and violent images, including subreddits called r/rapebait, r/incest, r/picsofdeadkids, r/jailbait, and r/chokeabitch.
