    Thank you President Obama. World is a safer place now. Your hitting all your marks. I'm proud to be an American. Now we just need to tighten our belts. I would like to see a couple things done. Tax the hell out of companies that want to take there business to foreign countries to take advantage of there cheap labor. Same goes for all the product that comes into the US. Lower taxes for Americans. Tax the hell out of everything/everybody else. Let's be more self sufficent.

    Sorry folks,I didn't post the above. Obviously this joker likes to hi-jack people's names. I wish he would stop! He must be a fan of Sarah Palin.

    Why are you at CNN sitting there today doing commentary on Obama's live town hall INSTEAD of broadcasting it ALL live. Give us some "real time" coverage instead of your "FOX-LITE" approach. I liked you a lot better when you did news instead of soundbites and when you called out obvious bullsh&% instead of giving equal time to unequivelant arguments. You'd have better ratings if you all listened to Jack Cafferty.

    Jack , quite a few times during our economic recession I have heard CNN commentators say or quote that there are many American business' sitting on billions of dollars of profit and creating jobs because they are
    "Unsure of the Future" (taxes and regulations). I'm 62 years old , I recently retired on Social Security because of injury to my hands and back , my wife and I have had three HMO's in three years in between two surgeries. I'm seeing that Education for my Grandchildren will be cut, my sons are struggling to make ends meet for their families , oh yeah just lost my Home to forecloser. I'm one of the lucky ones there are so many more stories in this country that are a lot worse. To hear the Tea Party and Republicans argue that their Billionaire Compadres are UNSURE makes me sick.
    We absolutley need to regulate Big business. No regulations is why we're in this mess. Raise their taxes and then give
    tax breaks to companies that are hiring American workers with the biggest tax breaks for smaller business'.
    additional Tax breaks for companies working on Infrastructure and renewable energy. As consumers we need to remember who are the companies sitting on money waiting for their political agenda to be approved.
    Children , Seniors , Soldiers and working men and women of this Country have watched our so called Leaders/lobbyists Divide us since 911 in the face of our Enemies. We ARE the Foundation of this Country .
    It's time for Big business to show their Loyalty to this Country.
