Oh, for cryin' out loud..."Obama's star always rises in open interviews"? Really?
Please tell me you didn't just say that.
He hasn't answered a tough question by the media in six months - not nary a one.
He rambles on though everytime he's in front of a camera and ends up saying things like "the private sector is doing fine" and "if you have a business, you didn't build that".
You're clearly at the top of class - of the easily fooled.
Yes, I did just say that.

Concerning Obama answering tough questions, suffice it to say that’s what he does all day every day as POTUS. I find no evidence that he is asleep at the wheel.

You seem polite, which I appreciate, and I’m going out of my way to be gentle with you.

The solutions are so much simpler and less costly. It's just that liberals don't want to hear those solutions.

Lowering the cost of medical care can be done quite easily. Paying for regular doctor visits out of pocket and buying catastrophic health insurance once medical costs have been reduced would be much more affordable. Make health insurance companies more competitive nationwide - like auto insurance companies.

It would be a lot cheaper to provide government funded clinics for those who are under a certain income level and have payment plans they can afford than to insure millions of people, ration healthcare for everyone and send everyone's taxes soaring.

YES! I remember reading about that. Henry Ford got caught up in the heyday of Marxism and he actually helped Stalin build Tractor Factories. American Liberals and Newspapers(NY Times, Time Magazine, etc.) were just in LOVE with Josef Stalin! So, too, across the Atlantic. British newspapers wrote highly of the 5 year plans and the great experiment of Russia.....and meanwhile millions were being murdered, tortured and staved to death in the midst of Winter as punishment from Father Josef.

Today, those same people are praising America's messiah - a bumbling amateur from the midst of wannabe socialists.

Does Anita Dunn or Van Jones ring a bell? They were forced to resign in the first year. For a good reason.
Look up Cass Sunstein, Regulatory Csar, and Kevin Jenning, Safe School Csar.
These two are good for starters.
I don’t follow Chicago politics, but I understand it has a long history of corruption compared to most other locations. I also understand the role that political corruption plays in achieving political power. Politics is indeed a messy business.

As you may know, it is my policy not accept homework assignments to research topics online per others’ commands, but I’m always open to reading any factual information, even personal opinions, that you might more conveniently offer.

Be prepared for Obama to just talk in circles.
It's going to be the kind of debate where the candidates can say anything they want. Without interruption or cross examination.
Hopefully, Romney will find some way to put Obama on the defensive. That's what I'm holding out for...Obama defending his record and trying to convince the not so easily fooled.
It's truly amazing, NOW he's REALLY going to get SERIOUS and create them JOBS. And reduce the deficit, right?

At the rate he's presently going, about the time the sun turns us into a cinder ash he'll have it figured out.

Also don't forget to discount a bunch of Obama votes that will be lost as a result of Republican voter suppression efforts.
Innovative fact creation + voter suppression + crossed fingers = Romney victory! Yes, America will have spoken spoken. A mandate to help the wealthy.
last I heard rich republicans owned all the voting mACHINES so there should be no problem with Romney winning, right?

I aspire to be wealthy, you aspire for everyone to be poor.

I did not get to see him in person. Romney and Ryan had a planned “bus tour” of Ohio and Ryan was supposed to speak at a steel company in Carthage, an industrial suburb of Cincinnati, on Tuesday. However, the location of this business is so obscure that I could not find it. I think it must have been a private event for his supporters, with him there as a bagman.
I did see coverage of him and Romney standing before a small crowd of greeters on a tarmac of an airport located somewhere in Ohio. Romney pointed to Ryan and gave him a big shout out and the crowd quietly chanted “Ryan.” Romney quickly jumped in to change the cheer to “Romney-Ryan” noting that he is the top of the ticket.
Ohio is an important swing state. Ryan/Romney can’t win the election without winning Ohio. The only other possibility would be for them to win all of the other swing states, all of which are increasingly favoring Obama by significant margins.
So, all in all, it didn’t go so well here for them in Ohio. Of course, they remain “optimistic” and Ryan has a backup plan because he’s also running for re-election to Congress.
Yes, I saw that on tv!, it would be poetic justice for him to lose his seat as well. Hope the voters have realized that those tea party candidates were a disaster. Like Allen West here, and Joe Walsh in Chicago

You are so easily confused between what you see as intelligence and what is creative lying. Besides, intelligence has nothing to do with goodness. Satan is a smartass and King Obama is a dumbass.
Neither one is good. See?
Go get confused some more.
Satan?

Evidence Required

What can be asserted without evidence can be dismissed without evidence.

Satan?

It is the 21st century? Are you daft?

Since Obama was swore in the LSM ignores the deaths in Afghanistan, previously the deaths were just an excuse to excoriate Bush. And libs are so clueless they think we don't know it.

Obama is just smart enough to give lip service to the military.

Henry Ford didn't have 5 decades of communist failures, deaths and tyranny for perspective, there's no excuse now.
