Im so confused. I just want a president that thinks about us little people. Those of us who has one parent working and the other staying home. Cause you know if both parents work one persons salery is going to pay for daycare. Who works but still need the food stamps so they dont have to choose between food or paying bills. I want a president who will understand that were not all rich.
Freedom, I agree that we need to take voting serious but you need to understand the duties of the president. It is not a duty of the president to take care of our individual needs. A president can lead congress to create bills that influence the everyday functioning of our nation. Please go to this site and read what the presidential duties are.

To Bettyboop: I am afraid the "supreme" in "supreme court" means just that. There is no higher court to rule their decision unconstitutional. But I do agree it was a very bad ruling by the court and it has all but given a rubber stamp to the corruption in Washington.

I figure with Ryan on the ticket most Republican and Independant female voters will make a mass exidous and vote for Obama/Biden. That would really please me.

<quoted text>Explain what you mean by the republican party will not do anything for the middle class. What are some examples that you would expect the republicans to do that they will not do? The "tax breaks for the rich" is something the liberals have patented. Sometimes it is better to say no than to compromise. What are some examples of supporting the rich and tearing down the middle class? I feel that everyone, rich middle or poor, show take some responsiblity for themselves. I don't feel that it should be up to the government to do everything for them. Parents should be responsible to those generation after generation of children. If parents can't provide for their children, they should shot have children. I will agree that education has just about hit bottom. Most effort is directed toward sports. Teachers are not allowed to discipline the trouble makers that do not want to learn and disrupt the classes for those who want to learn and this was caused by government intervention.
Sunrise, I know I'm very late in answering your question, but I would like to come back to this.
The current state of the country demands jobs, I don't believe we can lay the blame of the loss of our jobs on the government. We are to blame ourselves for the steady adoptation of bad buisness practices, and the world is very quickly changing, making many jobs obsolete. We need to concentrate on the future and be ready and willing to change jobs/careers. This means education/training.. these are the things we should be focusing on. This is why I don't agree with tax breaks, first I don't think they deserve these breaks, and second if they want tax relief then let them earn them. Create new jobs, invest in education, these are the things we need and they have the best oportunity to provide these things. I think reform should start at the top. Really, it's the extremes of each side of the economic scale that puts the biggest strain on our economy. Rich and Welfare. EVeryone else inbetween are doing their best, they are working and getting frustrated because they cannot make up the difference in this strain that is caused on both ends. Expecially now, we need everyone working, paying taxes to get us out of this mess and we all have to do our part if we want any success. I don't think the Republican party understands this at all. They want to cut taxes for the rich, increase spending, all the same problems you see in buisnesses that are going under. That is why I won't vote for them and since we are stuck in a two party system, that doesn't leave much choice.

4. What jobs do you classify as obsolete?
5. Explain why college graduates and military are the two highest non-employeed groups in America today?
6. Why do you support Obama when he has a proven 4 year track record which is far from successful?
7. Do you feel our Foreign Aid and Foreign Policy is working to America's benefit?
8. Do you agree with continueous spending of taxpayer money by the government to pick and choose which american businesses are blessed with cash infusion of money while others are required to weather the storm then succeed on their own by good business practices?
9. Do you agree with giving 5 billion dollars to Brazil to develop off shore drilling while we denied permits to companies based off our shores?
10. Do you agree with all the new additional taxes that will be hitting Americans in 2013 that the current president got passed through during his first term, remember these are new taxes plus the reinstatement of tax levels reduced by Bush II. A double whammy all coming due a payable by the american taxpayer in 2013?
11. Do you think these tax liabilities will hurt or help create more jobs for the future?
12. Why hasn't this president submitted a budget and we are now on his 4th year as president?

I see she ignored your questions again. Inconvenient uncomfortable truth for her! Last night debate made it clear Obama doesn't have a clue how to run this country. He doesn't even know the current statistics on his ObamaCare he didnt counter one point Romney brought to the table on ObamaCare because it's factually correct. I found it very interesting the stark differences between Romney's vision for tax policy and Obama's. Obama was ill prepared to debate was absentee on any valid counter-points. After the debate I immediately thought of Clint Eastwoods empty chair and thought, "well damn, Eastwood was dead right!".

Yep, this makes the second or third time misty has asked issue based questions and is ignored because the liberals don't want to address the reality of the economy. They all are looking at Obama like he's the messiah and all we have to do is believe his words and everything will be ok, meanwhile the country is falling apart, foreign policy is in total shambles and our debt is pushing us ever closer to a cliff none of us will survive.

I agree with Clint Eastwood the president's chair is empty, Obama is absent-in-chief, since he can do the job it's time for him to go!

Just wait till Mittens Romney and Tryin Ryan gets in office and they off shore half the goverment like Romney Bain offshored the plant and 170 jobs to china. That plant was making a profit and was located in Freeport Ind. But as least they have a job trining thsoe chinese on how to do their jobs til Nov 3 of 2012. Are you one of the 46 percenters that Romney speaks so lowly of--goverem,mtn dependent on goverment programs, food stamps. Did you know that half of McCurtain County is on food stamps or other goverment programs. Ryan has in the GOP budget al;ready pased the house a cut in food stamps of 16.5 billion dollars--are you in that cut. The has already apssed in the house. All you folks have to do is vote enough republicans into the senate to get the bill passed there and teh 16.5 billion in food stamps is passed for the 2013 GOP budget. Hope you folks and thsoe kids do not get hungry after thsoe cuts happen.

By the way there are also billions of cuts in medicaid also . So you folks might just start pricing an insurance policy to inure your children. And those kinfolkss of yours in the nursing homes need to be prepared for Granny to come on back home for some good old fashion home care nursing. Medicare even has cuts in it for the GOP 2013 budget that has al;ready passed in the house --controllled by the Republicans. That 2013 even has a suprise in it for the working class people --a tax increase for you fine folks. And a tax cut for the rich. Dont that make you feel wanted and needed and also very welcome by the Republican party. After all, according to romney and Ryan you folkd are not paying your share of the taxes. And do not forget that unearned income check some of you fine folks will lose once Romney and Ryann is in office--you lose that too. Now don't that jsut make you feel wanted by thsoe republicansand you will be paying your fair share also. But that pay check will feel a little lite next time you get it after election day. A present from Romney and Ryan the republican way. have a nice day

nd the loss of jobs was in the 800,000 during the last month Bush was in office--the worst crisis our country has had since the 1929 Great Depression that left over 25 million people out of work and no jobs available.

Did you folks forget the stock market losses under Bush where the marktlost about 50 percent of its value. Under Obama the stack market came back and went into the 13,000s It did not take long for the jobs market to start picking up. and we have gained over 5 million jobs during this time. Bush left us with an unpaid for 2 tax cuts which made the wealthy richer and you did not get enough out of that tax cut to put gravy on that dry biscuit you have for breakfast. Bush took us into 2 wars and put them both on a credit card and never put them in the budget by declaring there cost emergency funding. Created the medicare part D no bid contract leaving the cost wide open to greedy contractors and the seniors using part d a sough nut hole for seniors to pay for plus cost up front ofr ech prescription. The cost of that 2 wars and the VA cost of caring ofr the wounded and KIA in the field ad caring for our injured veterans over 3 trillion dollars and climbing. Now the GOP does not even mention the name of George W. Bush. And did not even invite him to the GOP convention and Romney does not mention him a all. So much for history that republicans want to forget or have oldztimers

You say this as if the federal government has factories that they run. Well, you might be right as far as this administration goes. They have GM.

Pappy, how do you know this? Where did you get this information? I'm not saying it is not true but you need to give us a link or some other source as to where you got this information. This is the first time that I have heard this. If this has already passed the house then it would be online.

Hospice is cut in ObamaCare so you're right granny will be coming home from the hospital,nursing care or hospice care and families will be forced to care for very ill or dying without assistance if they are on ObamaCare. Elderly who need hip,knee replacements will be denied because of their age and given a painkiller to deal with the issue until they finally pass away.

For those who are young (i.e. 20's) would be given an option to invest if they so chose,but nothing changed for those who perferred keeping the current system.

Cutting 716 billion out of medicare and putting it in ObamaCare was done by Obama Administration and that was clearly revealed in the 1st presidential debate...didn't you listen to the first debate?
