    Candy Crowley won't be able to cheat for Obama this time. He may not do as good.

      Agreed. Romney had to debate both the CNN moderator and Obama in the last debate. Candy Crowley isn't as sweet as her name implies.

      @Nancy,Candy didn't cheat,please before ranting out here acting ignorent read the transcripts lady,that's all I have to say on that subject,you and all your ignorent,racist republicans as usual are wrong!!Just ask Romney how's he going to create 12million jobs here in America when he was caught recently with Bain closing another factory in Honeywell electronics of Freeport,Illinois.Romneys Bain threatened the 170 employees with termination of benefits if they didn't train the Chinese workers in their jobs at the plant before it goes overseas to China..They did and when they went in Friday for their last shift before closing the factory had already been closed and the workers got screwed out of their benefits anyway.Some factory workers went to a campaign stop elsewhere in Illinois to protest Romney but were arrested.Is this the Mormon moron you want for president saying he'll create jobs here but just made 8 million for the Honeywell sale to Sensata of China,is that patriotic I don't think so and if you read carefully about him there's more illegal issues that can sink his campaign as well!!Ask Romney about his partnership with his son Tagg in a ponzi scheme that's netted 9 billion dollars and a partner also in Allan Stanford is serving 110 years for this scheme,started in his presidencial campaign headquarters in 2008..His lawyers are working hard for him because they can't find the money and the Romneys aren't saying,read up on Taggs Solimere corporation in the Cayman Islands along with 20 other private equity firms he established,can you say corrupt,crooked mormons that are not only wealthy but misleading ,illegal as well!!

      @ pete you act like 170 jobs is a big number. That's nothing compared to the millions of jobs that will be lost due to the E.P.A. overregulation that will happen if Obama is re elected. As far as being racist, that must be a guilty conscience because I am the only white man in my neighborhood. Though I am not a republican, I side more with them than I do the liberal democrat leaches.

      I am sure that the 170 who had to train the replacements before their job was shipped overseas would most definitely disagree with you, and I am sure that you would blame Obama is YOUR job were to suddenly be shipped overseas...I think it is your own guilty conscience kicking in, because you jumped down Pete's throat immediately.
      You did not address one part of Pete's post, except to say that hey, 170 jobs is a small number...completely ignoring the rest of what he said...

      Over regulation of the EPA?
      These regulations have been in place for decades already...why on earth would ANYONE want to vote for someone who wants to do away with the regulations that stopped the massive toxicity that were being pumped into our air and water?

    Soledad O'Brien is a CNN disgrace. I am a Canadian so I watch your election with interest. Unfortunately, Soledad is under the misapprehension that people tune in to hear only her opinions. She is so favourable to Obama that it should be embarassing to CNN. Her performance this morning in being unbelievably overbearing and rude with the Mayor should give CNN pause in keeping her on. Until you do something about her, I will find another channel.

      Plus she has an odd name. I bet her ma and pa didn't name her Soledad. That sounds made up to me.

    Chevy is dead and Al Qaeda is very much alive. Clint Eastwood was right, that chair was empty. For months that embassitor was telling the white house that Al Qaeda was strengthening while our president told you the war was over because he killed Bin Laden and Al Qaeda was on its heals. Just ask yourself why we have a vice president. It obviously was not a demonstration in response to a video. I hope Romney makes the whole debate about Obama's failure as commander in chief.

    The Iraq invasion and the Afghan debacle strengthened Al-Qaeda. Islamophobics here and the misguided on the 'Afghan front' who got kicks out of burning holy books and defiling the dead , the lkegacuy of torture in Iraq , all contributed to Al-Qeda getting a second life if you will. Ask any of our field commanders.Our support of 'rebels' (read Al-Qaeda & affiliates) in Libya orchestrated by the likes of McCain & co gave them a further impetus turning over Libya to them.

      Being a descendent of a survivor of nazi germany I can honestly say this: if you stop trying to be politically correct and treat the muslims the same as the germans were treated after the fall of the third rieche, terrorism would end immediately. The German citizens were told that it was their fault, they could have stopped it and chose not to. They were made to clean up the mess and noone cared if they starved doing so. Furthermore, did we allow Hindu temples to be erected at Pearl Harbor? None of that makes me an islamaphobe, but maybe it is you who is scared of the muslims because you won't do to the muslims what was done to the Germans.

      Hamsta, WHEN are you going to get that Islam is a religion, and not a nationality?
      Treating Muslims in the freaking way you suggest is no better than what how Hitler treated the Jewish, who were ALSO German, btw, and Polish, and Hungarian, and Austrian, and etc, etc, etc!

    Syria seems to be headed the same way. The foreign powers initiated 'implosion' is aiding and abetting Al-Qeda elements who we support.

    On tonite's debate, its easy to guess the way the 'wind would blow'. Which of the candidate supports and loves Israel more and has its back would be the theme.
    For those of us who have been visiting other planets, that is where our foreign policy begins and ends, since the Reagan times.

    So your claim to NOT being a racist is that your white, in a black neighborhood? Are you feeling superior or what???

    I cannot WAIT for these elections to be over.
    The absolute absurdity of some of these statements makes me laugh, though, and for that, I thank you.

    Not included in the absurd posts:

    Romney's mitting and twitting, and etching & sketching in foreign affairs and military affairs could bring back the cold war syndrome to Americans & the World at large. Romney/Ryan criticism of the great work done in foreign and military affairs by Obama and his team is shallow, parochial, and selfishly politically partisan. For Romney/Ryan the means justify the ends. They see only negatives no positives. We are sick of their negativity, distortions and untruth in our domestic, military and international affairs.
