Yes, but you were not going to vote for Obama anyway,. If it wasnt this, is was that....or that....

There are no undecideds. People made up their minds weeks ago. After the 47 percent comment at the latest, probably earlier. And the reasons WHY they made up their mind are already set.

LOL! Women don't have rights when they are being told what their roles are by men. How dense are you?
What was that once again?

So if you are told that what are your rights, you are not free?

Does not the Constitution of USA tells you people what are your rights, so none of you are free!!

You call me dense, but I think you people have lost all thinking powers.

If some one tells you what are your rights, then you are not free!!

What are those millions of laws made in your country? None of them tell what are your right?

And there are so many laws which are specific to women also in your country.... In India we have special seats and coaches and quotas for jobs for women, so those women are also not free?

If I was not, I would be a confirmed Hypocrite. I leave it to you people to give lip service to your religion and then have serious misgivings about its fundamentals.

Islam is no label that you put on your forehead, it is a state of belief. You can come into its fold and you might go out of its fold, if you are not watching your step and your mouth and your pen and your thoughts!!

May Allah save us from all temptations. Amen

Silly, in the US women participate FULLY in both the creation of laws and the administration/interpretation/ application of laws.

Hoqw many woman participated in the creation of Islamic laws? How many woman participate in the administration of Islamic Laws?

Islamic law is a theocracy not a democracy. Woman are not free, despite whatever rhetoric you claim. For them to be free, they would have to participate, not be told....

The more mature view would be to accept that Islam has its flaws AND its pros, and then move on.

Thats how educated, non ideological people act. Thats how I see my religion.

Instead you deny its flaws. In order to be ideologically pure. And then paint yourself into a corner where you actually WORRY about being seen as a "hypocrite".

Constitutional law, unlike the QURAN, is a democratic process.

Amendments are voted in with the participation of both genders. Women serve on the courts, serve as lawyers, and have full and equal rights to contest the law. And they do.

In civilized society, laws ensure EQUAL rights for all. Not so in barbaric Islamic societies. Telling women their place is at home and not where they want it to be is primitive and inheritantly unfair. You truly are incapable of reason, but we already knew that.

True, I wasn't. But idiocy when it's comes to protecting our military, diplomats, and other citizens working in other countries riles me up.

The polls show steady for Obama at 47%...hmmm. Maybe Mitt was on to something.

Well, if national security is a concern, you should be VERY concerned about who is advising Mit on these matters. Because they sem to be recylced neo-Cons from the Bush era. And we already saw THAT movie.

Of Romney's forty identified foreign policy advisers, more than 70 percent worked for Bush.

Many hail from the neoconservative wing of the party, were enthusiastic backers of the Iraq War and are proponents of a US or Israeli attack on Iran.

Christopher Preble, a foreign policy expert at the Cato Institute, says, "Romney's likely to be in the mold of George W. Bush when it comes to foreign policy if he were elected." On some key issues, like Iran, Romney and his team are to the right of Bush. Romney's embrace of the neoconservative cause -- even if done cynically to woo the right -- could turn into a policy nightmare if he becomes president.

Wall Street’s Fund-Raising Push for Romney

The Wall Street supporters of Republican candidate Mitt Romney are making a last fund-raising push as the election heads into its final three weeks.

DealBook has obtained an invitation for a cocktail and photo reception at the Hilton New York on Monday afternoon with Representative Paul D. Ryan, the vice presidential candidate. The price of entry is $1,000 per person and $5,000 for a photo, presumably with Mr. Ryan.

On Monday morning, one prominent hedge fund manager serving as an event co-chair e-mailed a blast solicitation to his contacts. He pointed them toward an article on Politifact about Mr. Romney helping a colleague of his at Bain Capital help locate his teenage daughter. The article, wrote the hedge fund manger, helps “demonstrates the kind of leader Mitt Romney is.”

He went on to write:“If you believe in capitalism over socialism and that our country’s fiscal debt crisis is the most important issue facing us today, I ask that you strongly consider donating to his campaign and asking your friends to do so as well. Don’t hesitate, the time is NOW! Don’t donate for me, do it for your kids, your grandkids and our country.”

The nearly 200 co-chairs include some of the more public supporters of Mr. Romney, including the New York Jets owner Woody Johnson and the hedge fund executives Dan Loeb and Anthony Scaramucci.

But a batch of hedge fund and private equity bigwigs show up on the list, underscoring the broad and deep backing that Mr. Romney is receiving from the upper echelons of Wall Street.

Among the hedge fund notables co-chairing Monday’s reception: David Tepper of Appaloosa Management; John Paulson of Paulson & Company; and John Griffin of Blue Ridge Capital. On the private equity side, there is Josh Harris and Marc Rowan, the co-founders of Apollo Global Management; Blackstone Group executives Michael Chae and Prakash Melwani; Alex Navab from Kohlberg Kravis Roberts; and Barry Volpert of Crestview Partners.

A number of prominent former Wall Street executives show up on the list, including John Mack, the former chief executive of Morgan Stanley, and John Whitehead, who ran Goldman Sachs in the 1970s and 1980s.

The Ryan event is happening alongside a number of Republican fund-raising confabs in New York, including a retreat at the Waldorf Astoria — a hotel owned by Blackstone — for the campaign’s top donors.

Fox: Romney's Tax Plan Doesn't Add Up

Chris Wallace says plan promises "candy" and hides "spinach," and disses supporting studies as partisan

Romney's tax plan and the oft-cited "six studies" that support it have been getting hammered by liberal critics for weeks. But now they're taking a drubbing from an unexpected source: Fox's Chris Wallace.

Wallace tackled Romney advisor Ed Gillespie: "Ryan is saying, we don't want to get hemmed in. Let's leave it to negotiations with congress to get into the details. Here's my question. Why is it all right to tell voters about the candy - " hey, everybody is going to get a 20% tax cut in their tax rates, but let's not tell them about the spinach, which is you're going to lose some deductions?"
