    Michelle obama's speech tonight was one of the best I have heard in a long while. As an Irish person we don't even hear our politicians in Europe speak like M's Obama did. I like president Obama and want him back in, not just for America's sake but even for the rest of us but do feel that his weakest link is Mr Biden. Mr Obama needs a better vice president, I think Mr Biden was a poor choice , but then again way back in 2008 it could have been anyone has Mr Obama just cruised IT without Mr Biden really just there waving and smiling. In 2012 however Mr Biden is needed more and I feel could let the side down with too many gaffs. If Mayor Julián Castro was with Obama now there is a team and the next president wrapped up in one.

    Most of the national problems are not created or be solved by the president or his policies.If each of us spend less than what we earn , we 'll have enough saving in case we are out of jobs. If we take care of our health , eat healthy, the country won't have such a big health care problems. The government should have policy to promote citizens that live in their means .
    may be we can create citizen scores like credit scores. People with high score get tax deduction and pay low health insurance .

    A lot of people don't have money and don't want to work, over weight , young, single moms with babies and government reward them. Many disabilities that I can't find any serious health problems .
    The government should give tax incentive to healthy and financially responsible people and take away the benefits from non productive people .
