    ok blitzer lets see what type of questions you ask this liar. It would be interesting to see who you have as a panel once this interview is over,I'm sure borger, king and gergen. You really need to step out this box, they are too bias.

    The best thing about electing Romney is that journalists like Wolf Blitzer will hold him accountable. The same cannot be said for Obama.

    Wolf needs to make sure which Romney he's interviewing because if he doesn't the other Romney may show up, the one that flip flops on everything.

    Wolf, ask Mr. Romney:
    1. Why he would not produce his tax returns for the period before 2010, but only a synopsis what was in them from his high-powered tax consultants?;
    2. Who he thnks will pick up guns and head to Iran and the Middle East to carryout his tough guy foreign policy, since his boys are too precious and valuable to do it?;
    3. Which Romney would be th President, the semi moderate guy who sounds almost sane or the one who has bowed down and kissed the boots of the extreme right?;
    4. If by some remote chance he did win and the American people do not have the sense to kick the GOP tea party zealots out of Congress, how would he deal with his own party whose idea of compromise has been articulated as being the point at which its oponents give the GOP everthing it wants?.
    5. Does he really hate people who have not made as much money as he has?

    I am sure Mr. Blitzer will not afraid to ask important question as such what is Romney conviction and why he want become a president not knowing what to do with it? Because his economic, domestic and national security agenda do not add up to a policy. Which Romney is the real one : The one who worship money when he was venture capitalist, the one who was one term moderate governor, the one who campaigned 7 years both as a moderate and a seviour conservative or the one who we will see today or the one we will see tomorrow?

    You mean no one on this post got the script on how this false is going to play out? Duped again by the political producers to bring you a reason to live with hope and not just exist. Have you people forgotten that It's 1984 and nothing is real for we are all plugged into the matrix of Wolf Blitzer and the likes of him to sell us a string of dingleberrys. Which pill are you taking?

    if romney wants to win, he needs to tell what he can really do for the middle class – Then, IF he wins, he will need to bring un-employment Down significantly, ( and I mean significantly) and work on that 16 Trillion debt, ( also significantly reducing it) IF he can do those 2 things – without putting the middle class regular working people, (people that Just wants to WORK, and provide for their family) in a Vise – I mean IF romney wins, and puts this country and the regular voting working people in a Vise, he will also be a one termer. People want Results, and as a business person, I want somebody to Produce, not Just rhetoric and hot air.

    May the Best Man Win

    Romney will say something in complete contrast to what he said in the debate which was in complete contrast with what he said the week before which was in complete contrast to the week before that, etc. Romeny is wash, rinse, re-bleat.

    He needs to ask Mitt about this, Mitt Romney says he has a plan to help people with pre-existing medical conditions get health insurance. But there's a huge catch: You basically have to be covered in the first place.

    If Wolf Blitzer will ask Romney direct questions and demand straight direct truthful answers with specifics, and not allow him to lie, fast talk with alot of flowery responses that makes no sense at all, or either evade the questions, Romney's strategy will start to unravel.

    Did David Gergen consult for Bain Capital? How much was he paid.He is a pro Romney supporter and not independent thinker,to suggest that Romney gave a great foreign policy speech was very partisan considering that the only thing he offered was to blame the President and mention arming the rebels.

    "Interview" is the headline word but in reality – no not really.
    Mr Romney rarely answers direct questions, skirts issues left and right, and answers differently than he did the previous day.. or hour. Blitzer will not press him on issues, will simply stare at his questions, and let Mr. Romney spew his leftover half truths, "verbal do-overs", with goody goody "I love ALL Americans" schtick.
    I'd rather watch Big Bird. At least he's honest.

    “It’s a felony to misrepresent yourself as being an election official when you are not,” said Brian Corley, the supervisor of elections in Pasco County.

    Corley said the pro-Obama volunteers registered “hundreds” of high school students last month when they were given access to as many as a half dozen Pasco County Schools – a district located north of Tampa.

    According to school email obtained by Fox News, some of the Organizing For America volunteers identified themselves as employees of the local elections office.

    Sorry, Wolf Blitzer. Not interested in the promotion of Mitt Romney, or his lies. America deserves better. If he can't run on the truth, chances are what he is offering isn't worth listening to ... let alone voting for.

    What a duo? Hopefully Mr. Blitzer will do his homework. Will he be willing to ask the important questions and will he get Mr. Romney to tell us which Mr. Romney we will get if he is elected president.

    Just a few question I would ask Gov. Willard M Romney.

    Willard why not post your tax returns for the last 10 years? How much untaxed money is in the Cayman Island accounts.
    Do you really think that all us senior are on welfare? What do you want to replace Obama Care with? (Show the exact plan)
    Do you really want go to war with Iran? How many of your sons will you send in harms way? How are you going to pay for this war? ( The last to wars went on the government credit card)
