    On a side note, I think Ms. Raddatz (the debate moderator) did a fantastic job.
    Mr Obama was a guest at her wedding! Hardly an objective moderator.

    Did Biden try to talk over them, too?
    Did he? lol I don't know you tell me....lol

    My thing is if a geek can sit and count the number of interruptions during the VP debate, the stats should not be one sided. That geek should review the first Presidential debate again and see who was doing ALL the talking and interruptions, and release those stats also. Fair is fair.
    Thats why people can't think for themselves....
    I'm a Democrat till I die! or

    I'm a Republican till I die!

    Be neutral look at the FACTS, not some biased geek stats telling you what to do, and then make your decision on who is the best man for the job.

    Would Paul Ryan's wife be objective enough?

    He was a guest of the groom and didn't know her, wasn't friendly with her, and she divorced that man over a decade ago. But nice spin.

    ok...so the "my guy" comment...

    So, I may not have voted for the sitting president...but he is my president nonetheless.
    I may not agree with his policies...but he is my president.
    I may not agree with his politics...but he is my president.
    I refuse to villify my president ... that's just me.
    I will discuss my disagreements, but I will not name call, or demonize, or otherwise try to diminish the importance of the office and therefore the person occupying the office.

    I am first and foremost an American, a citizen of the USA.

    I can understand that and if Romney wins I'll try to have that attitude. When Mr. Bush was in office, on this board I refused to stoop to being ugly and name calling. I remember saying things like he's smug, arrogant, smirks and that just listening to him upset my inner spirit, but I don't think I resorted to being ugly when offering my opinion.

    Romney and Ryan don't upset my inner spirit like Mr. Bush did....yet. LOL

    I totally agree with you. See that's the attitude that some Americans did not have with Obama and frankly I do not know how people can disrespect the "Office of the President" as much as they did with President Obama. We are in a democracy, if one don't like the guy just shut up for 4 years and then just vote. Some of the things that Rush Limbaugh and other fanatic Republicans were and still is saying about the President were just plain nasty. I have no idea how Obama was able to keep his composure these 4 years. Many people did not like Bush, especially for the way he got the second term but you still got to respect the Office. The whole birth certificate thing with Obama was a "bunch of marlarky" and up to 1or2 months ago Donald Thump was still trying to push that agenda. Comeon the law is the law. One has to be born a US Citizen to even enter the Presidential race. If they thought the FBI checks were not enough that a non-US citizen would just become a President, then one has to say the entire system is flawed and we have failed at domestic security checks. Maybe I should try to run for president see how far I will get, being a real non-citizen...I wont even get pass the application part of the process. Only regret I have is I don't yet have my citizenship to vote this time around...maybe next time.

    Shortened to highlight one other important point IMO.

    I applaud you and many others who are seeking citizenship. I appreciate that you are actively involved in this discussion where you get to have no say in the outcome.

    Too many who really can vote will skip doing it. They do not appreciate the power of the vote and the importance of making your choice known.

    Many have become disillusioned after all the attempts to stop many voters from voting. This includes the crazy ID requirements that were a hidden poll tax, the attempts by a company to change and discard voter registration cards, and the current issue of this company, now using a different front name, being used again, or still, by the GOP to wipe out voters they do not want voting.

    I love the idea that is used in many countries: thumb is dipped in ink after voting. It is a badge of honor. Where I vote we get cheesy stickers that say "I voted" which is not quite the same.

    Again, I hope you stay active in the political discussions. There is much to be learned from all the views expressed here.
