    If you are concerned about the debt, how will cutting taxes on wealthy people solve this problem? You do realize, of course, that this has been tried a few times and never leads to more jobs being created or reduction of the debt.
    How will taking away healthcare from people help the economy? Why did republicans say that their highest priority was to make sure Obama only had one term? Why was their highest priority not getting our country healthy again and creating jobs? They have hurt our economy with their politics. Romney and Ryan will not give out specifics of their economic plan, they say, until after the election. Who wants to vote for somebody who will not tell us his plan or show us his tax returns? What is he hiding from us? Quit throwing around words like "socialist" and "liberal" and look at the math. Historically, America has better employment numbers under democratic presidents and this has been true for over four decades.

    How sad--in a functional democracy, voters would take pride in listening to both sides, weighing the evidence, and making an informed decision, not proudly declaring their ignorance. But I suppose that's what we get when we let partisan commentators tell us what to think.

    It's sad that it's come to this. Democracy deserves better than sound-bite partisanship.

    Glad to hear it - maybe you could then explain your rationale regarding the 16 trillion debt that is is hanging over our heads like an Atomic bomb ready to explode? Your great leader called Bush unpatriotic for adding 4 trillion to the debt and he has added 6 trillion in half the time. Projections at Obama spending going forward show the debt going to 20 trillion!!!! So .... go ahead and enlighten us. Waiting.....

    What scares me about liberals is their total and complete lack of understanding and any sense of urgency regarding the debt. This single thing will destroy your retirement and your kids future but like Alfred E Newman of Mad Magazine all we get from liberals is "what - me worry?"

    What was Obama's plan for the next 4 years? Let's see - more borrowing more spending and more taxes. We used this game plan the past 4 years and got beat 40-0 and now we go forward with the same plan and hope it somehow works this time? Unemployment is projected to go to 9.2% next year by the the CBO and again liberals just ignore it.

    Anyway, please enlighten us all....
