    Twitter is blowing up with threats of riots if MR wins and death threats to MR. All these from blacks. Yep, they have come a long way.

    It is strange that this photo montage is the same almost every day. Romney gets a nicely set up direct-to-camera shot, while the rest are stuck with action shots- particularly Obama and Biden, with their mouths open.

    Please- use some new pictures! The current repeat makes CNN look lazy, and possibly worse- biased.

    I wonder how many more lies Romney is going to feed the American people during the debate.

    Look, the Republicans in congress has sabotaged the economic recovery. The Bush administration left this country in an economic mess, started two wars and gave away trillions in tax cuts to the super wealthy. Now they are blaming Obama for not cleaning up the mess fast enough.

    Do not give the keys to the white house back to the Republicans. They do not deserve it.

    Obama has been the first to take credit and the last to take the blame

    I like the photos. Purposeful??? Joe has the look of uncontrolled free association because his central bervous system is that of a jelly fish, Barack is the out of control angry man he disdains looking like, Mitt has the "I just ate the mouse" cat look and Paul has the "I'm the jeopardy champion" look. Whoever picked these photos did a wonderful job summing up how others want us to see all of these guys. This is probably the most balanced reporting by a media outlet thus far! :)
