This candidates have no plans of doing anything for this country, all they are interested in is making a man who within 2 years have accomplished more than they would ever dream of accomplishing in their lifetime the bad guy, because he is black. The President is not a majician. The republicans destroyed this country for 8 years, and now they think they got the answer to everything. goodluck with that.
Why is it that all republicans fear President Obama's plans for affordable government runned health care? Is it because they are the only people in this country that can afford to buy private health care insurance? Or maybe it's because all of that money they have tied up in stocks in the insurance industry that is making huge profits and in return making them rich? Our president is actually doing what he said he would do when he was running for office. Health care is a major issue and we really need an alternative to the private companies greed.
I watched the entire "debate." About all I got out of it is that every candidate on the stage would like to declare null and void all branches of the US government and want the media banned from ever publishing again.
That President Obama was painted with the Bull's Eye by design as preparations for this debate began was amply demonstrated last night. That the candidates like Bachmann and Gingrich and others barring Ron Paul were there to appeal to the far right only was also amply demonstrated.
That America would be in a sorry state if the likes of Bachmann or Gingrich take the helm was also amply demonstrated.
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
