I'd love to see a candidate head off track at one of these things and start a discussion on solutions to major problems. Even if they're unworkable, at least it's a start. I'd like to see these things more like a stewart/o'reilly debate. We need change.

"As President, I will create 12 Million new jobs" ~ Mitt Romney
OK Mitt....how?

"I would do away with loopholes and deductions for higher-income earners." ~ Mitt Romney
OK...which ones?

BTW - Pres. Obama didn't really propose anything new, just defending himself against Romney's accusations as I recall.

LDS Liberal -- Romney's accusations or nonsense?

Why not demand that Obama tells us what good he has done, and then back that up with proof? More than 1,000,000 lost their jobs and hundreds of thousands lost their homes under Obama. He doesn't care.

Romney gave a five-point plan that will work.; just ask any businessman who has to pay for a business and has to pay the employees who work for him. Obama has never hired anyone - except community organizers who go around and tell people that some "rich guy" owes them a living.

Obama has no plan. He has never had a plan. When he presented two budgets, the Senate told him to take a hike. NOT ONE Senator voted for his budget. What does that say about his leadership ability or of the "validity" of his budgets?

Get a clue. A leader inspires people to do more than they have done. Obama has created fear and depression in the minds of Americans. He has inspired NOBODY.

There is/was one but many chose to ignore Ron Paul.

RP actually addresses issues and doesn't give feel good sound bites nor does he pander to the audience d'jour.
