  2. Truth and Nothing But the Truth

    Seriously, is there anything left to ask??? Hasn't it already all been asked and answered, multiple times?? I think the media just wants to create more division within the Republican ranks with these endless debates. All while Obama sits back, raises a billion dollars, watches, learns and waits. If I were all of these candidates, I would turn down every debate offer moving forward.

    Bill Clinton balanced the budget. George Bush re-started the buge budget deficits. Obama inherited those deficits. Why do the current GOP candidates not mention that it was a Republican president who re-started the massive deficits ? Obama is not exactly a good president either, but the GOP should at least remember how the current cycle of deficits got re-started.

    why didn't they capture Bin Laden when they were in power. Why not raise tax on wealthy to fill the debt, and why not stop wars that GOP idiots went.

  5. Lost in Texas FOREVER

    I would like to touch on a point the GOP has tended to ignore....POVERTY in America and what do they intend to do about it. Right now it's higher than ever before almost 1 out 2 live in poverty. I'm sure they don't want to touch on income disparity since Romney already said that was only due to envy, but the other candidates may want to discuss it.

  6. The Greedy Old Pigs have declared class war on US!

    "Seriously, is there anything left to ask??? Hasn't it already all been asked and answered, multiple times??"

    You haven't paid much attention then. Let me help you out with some important questions that haven't been asked or answered:

    Question #1: Do you support the two thirds of America, including roughly half of your own party, who favor a millionaire's surtax and an end to the bush tax cuts on the top percentages? If not, why not?

    Question #2: Do you admit that history has proven tax cuts for the wealthy does not create jobs?

    Question #3: What sacrifices do you think the wealthy should be sharing along with the rest of America?

    Question #4: If the majority of Americans do not favor war with Iran, will you follow the wishes of the public?

    To all candidates

    Have you ever knowingly accused another candidate of something he has repeatedly denied? If so, why?

    Rather than accuse Bain Caapital for pillaging the businesses in Newt's ad, would it not have been better to ask why the unions did not seek to save those jobs by buying these defunct businesses themselves with union pension funds and hirng their own sympathetic managers?

    Speaker Gingrich, you've been running ads in South Carolina attacking Governor Romney for "looting companies". Do you stand by those serious accusations and if so, can you explain to the people of SC why Capitalism is failed?

    To Gov. Romney and Huntsman. 'The book of Ephi in the book of Mormon teaches: Mormons are to strive to become Gods. Would getting elected as the President of the US help you accomplish this?

    I'd like to ask each and every one of them if they can look in the mirror and truly admire the character and honor of the face they are seeing., if this is a person of honesty and caring that can be trusted to care about millions of people in need as opposed to the almighty dollar??.....{ Not bloody likely, if they're honest....which they are NOT}!!!!!
