    Since no one wants to talk about Newts imorality, how about his wife? Do we want a first lady who sneaks into another womans home and carries on with her husband? I think that Calisa's moral character should be questioined. They made a song about that, (Down with OPP) If Michelle Obama had (creeping) on her resume, I quarantee Barak would not be the President. Thank you.

    I hope the audience is controlled tonight. If I wanted to hear booing and cheering, I'd go to a rally. It is not a matter of free speech either, there is free speech and there is being rude. Not everyone is privileged enough to go to the debate in person or attend a rally, so we want to hear what the candidates have to say. I want to make up my own mind, not have everyone else's view shoved down my throat.

    So the debate on Monday was a little boring, I take my citizenship obligations seriously and was not watching to be entertained. Do you go to school to be entertained or to learn? I want to make an informed decision not follow the crowd.

    MOP tried ulsscceusfulny to make a point: Democrats can ask Republicans questions....... It is not rigging it, by having a Democrat ask a question.Yes it IS rigged, if the PLANT is a Hillary Clinton operative. CNN once again failed in their alleged investigative background check.And did you notice, CNN gave more time to the gay military guy on a single topic then they gave to any of the candidates. People in the audience started booing him. This is not a pressing issue that Americans care about.CNN – Capitulation News Network

    I tlatloy agree with you, then who against you? I think you should teach your children what you believe, and why others believe what they do and let them decide for themselves. It's not the kind of child abuse.

    My sympathy goes to Whitney's family and to all who is affected by this big lost. I want to take that opportunity to reach out to those who are started in church, but let driven by this world to be famous or any kind of distractions. I hope that Whitney had a chance to make peace with God, because His words say that He will not lose his glory. Whitney was one of his glory. If any one of you out there feels that you have walked away from the shield of Jesus Christ; please come back home. His arms are wide open waiting to embrace you, to love you. He is angry for a moment, but His mercy is for ever. Don't feel embarrass; please come back before is to late. And for those who never had a chance to accept Him as your Savior, grab this opportunity today to do so, do not wait to a next day, your life does not depends on you. God has His interest in you, He wants to give you eternal life. You are worth everything in the eyes of God. Don't delay. Jesus loves you just the way you are.

    Soledad Obrien gave it the old college try in her Keeping them Honest segment devoted to misrepresenting and debunking the statements by Rick Santorum on the lack of respect shown by some elitists toward people who have not gone to a four-year liberal arts college and tend to ignore the value of vocational training. Not so, protested Soledad and she ran a video tape of one of President Obama's speeches to Congress where he did pay lip service to the idea of vocational training but he also in the same tape implied it was unpatriotic to not finish high school, Well Obama never did anything when he was an Illinois State Senator in Springfield from 1997 to 2005 and even less when he was a U.S. senator to work to reduce the high school drop out rate for black teenagers that is 20 points higher than for whites and Asians in Illinois. He just never took any time to even talk about the drop out rate and then he has the gall to say those same teens are unpatriotic and letting down their country if they do not finish high school. He never did anythiing to help them but sit on a cushy chair paid for by the Annenberg Foundation to "study" the problem but not to come up with practical answers, That is why many in Illinois think Obama is a fraud when he says he is pro-education. He is for the eductional establishment that has failed the kids.

    Sanford Florida has a very sorry excuse for a police department. This child was murdered in cold blood. The lies that Zimmerman told are all coming to light now. Hell will be too good a place for this man. The world is watching this America. I hope we all see that this country still has so far to go. I pray that this gets people up to make their voices heard in November!!

    I was shocked to hear a blatantly racially prejudiced comment a few minutes ago in The Situation Room. A CNN reporter said that Houston's cocaine abuse should be a wake up call to cocaine users, and added: "Particularly among blacks, we have to be honest here". I checked online and found that cocaine abuse among blacks is only fractionally higher than among whites, and is lower than several other racial groups.
    CNN, please don't sweep this under the rug, and correct your reporter's incorrect remark!

    My name is Carl Miller I am a RN and I work with patients with addictions every day. Addiction strikes young and old, rich and poor and cares nothing about race. People are missing some things first; drug screens show positive for cocaine if it is powdered cocaine which speeds you up. They also show positive for cocaine if you smoke crack which sedates. Addicts that use Speed like meth, or powdered cocaine, often feel the need to use more before they physically can so they need to slow their racing heart and mind. This is when they use alcohol, Xanax, marijuana or others. It is not uncommon for someone using meth to have 18 beers in one sitting so they can use more meth. It is like walking on the razors edge and often addicts go too far in one direction or the other. Whitney likely was taking what for a NON addict large amounts of sedatives and passed out in her bathtub. Her death is a sad loss.
