Whoops - my bad. I got you, and yes - good one. Hope there's a K.O. early. I recall within the first 10 minutes of Romney/Obama, Romney land a huge upper-cut and Obama was on wobbling legs the next 30 minutes and then the jabs to the head had him dazed and confused, that at that altitude - be babbled something about "his new secret plan to cut the deficit by $4 Trillion Dollars". Well, that is wonderful news Mr. President - how do you plan on achieving that one - crickets. And, nobody has asked him about this great new plan either. I mean, come one already. How much MORE help can the left media help this guy ?? Sheesh. Be good. p.s. Such wonderful employment numbers should set the markets sky-rocketing, aren't they ?? Then, why has the market tanked day, after day, after day. Even today - such "stunning new news" produced another HUGE loss. I mean, stop manipulating the numbers goverment workers.

Democrat/Republican two sides of the same coin.That coin is firmly in the pockets of Wall Street and the Major Corporations.The politicians take orders without question.We are merely serfs.Right now they have too many serfs and will be looking to eliminate some.They have much cheaper serfs in India and China.They don't care about us at all.

Yes Biden's temper is his Achilles heel.

Yawn - BOTH these guys are boring and you see them reaching to make the connection in their minds eye - but trying to spit out the well rehearsed talking points - is not cutting it. Biden is leading like 52% - 48 %, but ONLY because he keeps butting in and Ryan allows him to. But it's Joe's shit-eating grin that is losing him points. Anyway - what a let-down at 10:15 - winding down. It really is all about Romney and Obama - the main players.

Percentages are only as accurate as the number they consist from. Nothing will get done if Congress is split. Prepare yourself for four years of conflict if either O Bama/Biden or Dumb/Dumber get in. Congress has to be controlled by a majority party, we all know that, so why all the chitter chatter??
