    I don't listen to debates or stump speeches during an election season... All speeches are geard to tell people what they want, regardless of the nominee whether he be dem or republican. The best bet is to look at the actual record of the person running. Look at their history. The truth is there.

    I recently read there is a reward to anyone able to come up with a cure to "robo" calling. Help me understand the emenient closure of the election but the total abuse of unwanted and unsolicited phone calls by political campaigns searching for uncommitted voters. How successful would one expect the results of the investment in annoying people. help me to understand you search for a solution if you are the source. And how can you expect an indepentant to feel any political faith in either party if they can't even understand annoying phone call from someone at the worst time

    Through the campaign there has been a lot of talk about small business. But what can either acnidate offer to who are workers and not entrepreneurs?

      Mr. Young you have to realize that jobs are not created by the common workforce they arecreatedby people with money and if they can't stayin business they can't putpeopletowork. Keeping the small business viablale and growing helps you and many others like us to have a place to work and bring a paycheck home.

    Thanks Anderson for being a true journalist reporting just the facts. It is about time for US news to take a good look at itself and keep the true meaning of free press alive. What is the difference if the a news agency is run be the government or by a party line. the result is that they do not report the truth. Facts in this race has been some thing a lot less important and value than acting on stage.

    It is interesting to see the advertisement portrayed like this after the last debate. I wonder if Mr. Romney's behavior during the debate is a set-up for these series of advertisements? If he was acting "presidential" knowing his group will be making the commercials.

    On a different comment: If Senate Candidate Richard Mourdock believe a pregnancy conceived from a rape is gods will. If that child is gay/lesbian, will that child still be consider part of gods will? Or if the child and mother are poor is it gods will for them to live like that?

    Ronmesia is all talk and no substance. Has anyone realized what was Romnesia's strategy at the three presidential debates? He thinks he's clever but this man's a crook! Well, his strategy worked to perfection at the first debate and his strategy was also aided by Jim Lehrer's seemingly intentional interruption of the President (I counted 8 times the President was interrupted to zero times Romney was interrupted). But Romnesia's strategy was to keep talking and talking way beyond the time allotted for each topic, thereby limiting the response time for the President. And even if he wasn't making any sense in what he was babbling about, he kept talking and talking and on the three occasions, the moderators had to move on to the next topic, inevitably denying the President a chance to respond because Romnesia used us so much time blabbling without making any sense. That reminds me of sports. When you play a dominant team, you try to shorten the game by holding on to the ball and running out the clock. Or keep a hot quarterback on the sideline by controlling time possession of the ball. Yea, Romnesia might be a good businessman at breaking the rules of the game, but two bad the strategy backfired on him in the other two debates. Yea, a crook is a crook even if he's wearing a business suit!

    Advantage: Obama 2012. Game over!
