      Maybe you should watch the video. Rachel Maddow responds to Letterman and then he says "Well the problem here is I just don't know what I'm talking about."

        Yes, but it surprised me that Letterman would say what he did, challenging Obama's "facts."

          I just think it's funny because now you can actually "cut" a video the way you want to so the cut comes just as he gets that sentence out. The writer did not include that or Rachel Maddow's explanation. For my part I have read Romney's blog and part of the bankruptcy would have eliminated ALL of the pensions that people have been putting their money into for years. I'm a Union member and when you lose your pension it's twenty or more years going down the drain. It should be illegal to count the workers pensions and health care benefits in a bankruptcy because that's not company money; unfortunately the law needs to change.

        That was a humorous segway to a new topic. It was after a long, barely relevant rant by the guest. The guest even remarked that Obama was not entirely accurate - but gave the rant as to why Obama did it. Even the guest sidestepped being a fact checker, because she clearly "I just don't know what I am talking about.". Perhaps it all was Lettermen covering his bases, because he is discouraged about who the next president is.

    And now we have Obama, saying that trust is the most important issue. Many of us thought this was Obama's election to lose. Now it seems to be holding true. The debates have changed the election.

    Even Obama's diehard supporters are having difficulties enabling the man's deceptions!  It seems that no one wants to carry the water of falsehood!


    Can you hear the music Barry!

      Even obama knows it.  His personal attacks are indicative of his realizations that he is rapidly losing ground.  His crowds are getting smaller and Romney's are getting larger and more enthusiastic.  This is why he wanted people to vote early.  He was afraid of being exposed as the incompetent, superficial, empty suit that he is.  Jimmy Carter is pleased.  He'll be thought of as one notch above obama in the history books.
      Momentum is on Romney's side and while I'm not sure it will happen, it could end up being a landslide for Romney.  I say that, because the  conventional wisdom is that it will be a close race.  Those espousing conventional wisdom are often times proven wrong.

        Actually since the last debate all the polls have Obama gaining ground, even Gallup which has been the most Romney favorable poll in this election has him dropping four points since the second debate and Obama has been gaining in the polls of every swing state except Iowa/New Hampshire, one thing you are correct on is that Obama is ahead in early votes in every single swing state.

          True, and I don't think R will take Ohio.

            In my area of Ohio, it's looking like Romney is ahead.  We live just north of Dayton and Cincinnati--there seems to be more Republican than Democrat  leanings here. 

            But we have been deluged with political calls and political flyers in the mail from both.  This is one Buckeye who is ready for this stuff to be OVER!  lol

            I have a question though...if I vote for an Independent, will my vote help or hurt Romney?  I read somewhere this morning that it would hurt Obama more...

    If you are talking about GM going bankrupt. Romney would have allowed it, yet Debbie Stabinow, Jennifer Granholm, and Obama worked out a plan to keep GM in business. The main reason GM wanted to file for it, was so that they could avoid paying those pensions, and restructure with lower paid workers, thus avoiding having to deal with the auto workers unions. They were not in financial trouble when they were ready to file, they were doing it to avoid going further into dept, and now they are making a huge profit, with plans to sell 30 million cars in China a year.

    This is something that a lot of companies are doing, and they should NOT be allowed to get away with it. You can't sit on several billion dollars in Assets and claim that you are broke, not to mention profits exceeding several Million. Companies seem to think that losing 15% of their profits should give them the right to file, even if they regain that 15% .If any average person attempted to do what they are doing, the courts would just tell them to sell off all their assets first, before they can apply.

    The rich get away with way too much in this country, and give little or nothing back.
