    "In my view the "angry" man was Mitt Romney. Obama was confident and assured, much better than last time. Romney made some glaring errors and did not shed any further light on his "5 point plan". I do not see Obama as "the evil empire" nor do I see Romney as anything but a political mouth for the white and privileged. And frankly, does not matter which one gets elected if they can't get congress and the senate to work with them. We all lose"
    1st question: By a college student asking what will the newly-elected Pres. going to do about getting him a job when he graduates?
    Gov. Romney: answer: My 5 pt' plan then I heard balh blah blah about what isn't right about the our current budget ,and how bad it is under Obama. That poor college kid never got his question answered. I turned the channel after that. Same old crap different day.

    Well written Gooser. With regard to the Constitution, and contrary to Justice Ginsberg's assertions, it was never designed to define our liberties; those were granted to us by our creator and are unlimited insofar as to whether our actions and decisions do or do not bring harm to others. The design of the Constitution defines the limits of the Federal government, i.e. it's enumerated powers.

    I think hell just froze over, but I agree with Gooser. I did not watch any of the debates, no need to its just noise and it really irks me cause it causes the shows I want to watch to be shoved aside and i don't really get to watch a lot of TV, nor do I have cable so I can avoid the bobble-heads. If you don't know who you are voting for by now then I have to ask, where have you been hiding?

    I got my ballot in the mail yesterday...it will be filled out and mailed in shortly...let them debate away, let them ruining evening TV shows, I'm going elk hunting (translated into: I'm going to go exercise my 2nd amendment and carry my rifle around the woods while I try and find a nice sunny spot to take a nap and maybe not snore too loud and scare dinner away)....

    No Brian, my head is actually in a very sunny and optimistic place! It is wonderful living somewhere that people have these discussions frequently, are familiar with the issues and the candidates' stand on them, and most of all are willing to discuss them without rancor or name calling. It was Gov. Romney himself that decided that 47% of us are not important to him. Cool, I'll deal with that

    So let me see if I understand Carol: You are the 47%? Driving around the country is a nice RV and Truck? Living in Taos? So tell me--How in the hell do I get my free Obama phone? I'm assuming you have one. You are the one who took to FB with the threat to Un-Friend people over their political opinions--so PLEASE don't post this crap about discussing issues in a civil manner. I call BS.

    That 47% was a context to the people he could not sway... He was stating that he needed the undecided votes. There is no way he could sway someone who is a pledged DEM to vote for him or someone that gets freebies to vote for him. He grouped them together in the 47%, but it was for all different reasons. Some "Vote for the Den only" peeps and the free loaders are two sub-categories of the 47%. The haters ran with that one and he never made the explaination.

    Heck I think I'm turning into the other 47% percent that will NOT vote for those crazy donkeys...

    Sorry Carol; I decided to be the bigger person and remove my comment not realizing you had already responded to it. So be it. I stand by what I said.

    Whoa Nancy. I said I would unfriend those that bombarded me with political advertisements. I specifically INVITED original thought or commentary. Although I am not quite old enough for SS, Medicare or any type of gov income at all, I sympathize with those that are disregarded because they take the benes they have earned. As to my trailer and truck, yep they've been a home for us since losing our house. You sure aren't being asked to pay for them. You don't know my story and I don't know yours. And I really do enjoy dissenting discussion with people capable of critical thinking and possessing original ideas.

    I view this "47%" bs with a baseball analogy. Every year Major League Baseball teams play 162 games. Every team (unless they are really stink o) is going to win 50 games and lose 50 games. It's what they do with the other 62 games that determines if they make it to the playoffs. All Romney was saying was that he knows he going to lose that 47% no matter what. He has to direct his attention to his base, the moderates and the undecided in order to win the election. Makes sense to me.
