    Is Ryan going to clean the Berea school's clean dishes as well and say that he is helping the school systems out?

      Only if he makes an appointment with the school and gets a starched, white apron first.
      Then he'll still throw the school to the wolves.

    Are you aware that Hanity on Fox news last night said that Candy Crowley lied about the "Act of Terror " remark? Then he went on to say later in the evening "that Candy admitted she was wrong" ... please stand up for Candy ... it seems with the republicans (Romney included) if you don't say what they want they call you a liar. Doesn't this bother people? Aren't people afraid to have people like this running our country and reporting on our country? My favorite part of all of this is Romney just says what he thinks people want to hear whether it is true or not ... how can people trust what he would do if he became president? Scary!

      Candy was wrong. Our president was referring to the 9/11 attacks when he said it was an act of terrorism. Not the Bengazi attacks. I support our president 100% but Candy still was mistaken.

    The debate exposed the phony – Romney. His efforts to always wave that invisible magic wand of " I have got what it takes to........." without substance didn't quite work. He was frustrated and that showed too.
    President Obama was his self, getting his narrative across with the genuine convictions that he has. I think his performance would appeal to the undecided voters.
    I'm the decided one.

    A Brunette, a Redhead, and a Blonde escape a burning building by climbing to the roof. The Firemen are on the street below, holding a blanket for them to jump into.

    The firemen yell to the Brunette, "Jump! Jump! It's your only chance to survive!" The Brunette jumps and SWISH the firemen yank the blanket away...the Brunette slams into the sidewalk like a tomato.

    "C'mon! Jump! You gotta jump!' say the firemen to the Redhead.

    "Oh no! You're gonna pull the blanket away!" says the Redhead.

    "No! It's Brunettes we can't stand! We're OK with Redheads!"

    "OK" says the Redhead, and she jumps. SWISH! The firemen yank the blanket away, and the lady is flattened on the pavement like a pancake.

    Finally, the Blonde steps to the edge of the roof. Again, the firemen yell "Jump! You have to jump!"

    "No way! You're just gonna pull the blanket away!" yelled the Blonde.

    No! Really! You have to jump! We won't pull the blanket away!"

    "Look," the Blonde says, "nothing you say is gonna convince me that you're not gonna pull the blanket away! So what I want you to do is put the blanket down, and back away from it . . ."

    Romney was extremely rude. Irregardless of who the president is, they deserve respect! If he feels like he can talk to the president in such a demeaning way, how do you think he feels about regular Americans? I want a president, not a womens' right suppressing boss.
