    Obama. Romney's only for the rich, and could care less about the middle class and poor.

    I don't think either are qualified to wash my tricycle as someone in office once stated,our president is no longer elected, our president is selected!
    The current management of our government appears corrupt and out of the peoples control.
    Time to wake up America!
    At this point, who would be so shallow minded to care about Rep or Dem, We have a greater problem.

    No tax returns? No vote.
    No valid explanation of the White Horse Prophesy? No vote.

    I'll finish the list tomorrow.

    I am confused as to how the CNN poll members can conclude that reducing taxes and increasing defense spending and huge cuts in entitlements and spending lead to being a winner on debt. It only works if you 4 – 5.5 % growth and in a stagnated global economy that is realistically, extremely unlikely! QED Romrymonomics increase debt/deficits.
    The poll does show Obama needs to sell his economic policies far better than he has done to date Obama needs to concentrate less on saying why Romneys position is a Bush repeat which it is, but more strongly how he would handle budget and debt issues and spending cuts/ taxes... even if it means he has to restore most of Simpson Bowles but with the rich tax increases, corporate loophole elimination and taxbreaks and the corporate tax rate to 28 %. He has been there said these things but he has to make it clearer and get the message out better and get the CBO to evaluate PDQ.
    Incidentally the Bush presidency looked at the 28 % corporate tax rate and elimination of loopholes and tax breaks and backed off because it cost nothing but did not cut taxes as hoped.
