    Did Romney confirm, again, how out of touch he is with the average American?

    Romney spoke of the importance of education and should be funded because our future depends on it.  Then he stated that he would discontinue all funding for public television. Does he realize that the 47% he spoke of maybe doesn't have satellite or cable and PBS is the only art and education T.V. broadcast available to them? Many pre-school children and home schooled children watch and learn from this. What is his goal? Harvard or nothing?
         Get in touch Mitt. If you are so out of touch that this didn't cross your mind, you and the rest of the 1% should move to Monaco.

    I think in a couple of ways he did confirm he is out of touch with average Americans however, Obama looked like he was phoning it in and trying to be too nice to his own detriment while Romney acted rudely to what appears to be his benefit.

    Romney showed he understands the economy mush better than Obama ever will. He understands that small business creation is vital to a growing economy and that increased spending and taxation are not the answer. Obama oversaw an increase in unemployment, increased fuel costs, average family incomes going down, work participation going down, deficit and debt increasing over the last 4 years...now he says he's got a plan?

    Yes he did and I think Romney is delusional and a liar. He is doing and saying anything he can to win and a person like him should never be within 100 miles of the White House.

      SO when Obama said he would cut the deficit and then he doubled it, was that lying? When he said if his stimulus package was passed that unemployment wouldn't go over 6%, but it hasn't been below 8%, was that lying? what did Romney lie about?

      News flash! They are all liars. No president in history has fulfilled all the promises made to get elected. It's virtually impossible. What I don't like is someone saying a majority of 2008 voters were fools. Maybe we learned, Mitt.

    Let's face it...any one who is a serious candidate for president is likely not from the "common people."  Very few of us can afford Harvard or the education either candidate has had.  I can remember the last election when Obama talked about the middle class.  Someone then asked what constitutes middle class.  He mentioned $250,000 a year. So that is out of touch with most of us.

    So my point is any candidate for president is going to be slightly out of touch.  And PBS is not solely funded by our government.  There are other ways to fund it.

    Also I see a huge deal made out of Romney being wealthy.  So were the Kennedys, but they were not accused of being out of touch with average Americans.  And Obama is not a poor man. 

    So let's stick to the issues.  Which candidate can make a difference in the state of our country.  I'm not sure of that answer either.....

      What's sad here is that WE are out of touch. Many of us would like to consider ourselves middle class because we don't live in the "hood" but the truth is, we are one step from it if we aren't at 250k/yr. This is middle class today. We are in denial.

      This is scary. Since both sides are out of touch, it sounds like a middle class never existed. How can it if no one knows what it is? Is it smoke and mirrors used for political gain or an entitlement? This means millions fit in nowhere.

    Living in the Philippines, I didn't catch the debates. But I'm not interested. Why? Because the only hope for America is 3rd party.

    Both Obamney and Rombama are puppets of the Corporate Party.

    Ask yourself why, since the lies of 9/11, the Constitution has been shredded so much.

    It's now a felony to protest what the government does (HR 347). Obama has his "Kill List" including American citizens. Obama signed (and Romney would've signed) the NDAA with its indefinite detention clauses for American citizens. If someone in government doesn't like you, they can have you locked up and the key thrown away -- no charges, no attorney, no trial, no phone call.

    The Corporate Party media has been deftly keeping alive the illusion of normalcy and choice.

    But here's proof that choice has died. Both halves of the Corporate Party, in their presidential conventions, have eliminated voting and Roberts Rules of Order. Of course, they keep the illusion alive by going through the motions, but those motions remain hollow -- a mere sham -- a pretense.

    DNC Scripted:

    Don't be fooled like the Germans 80 years ago. They had Hitler to look up to. We don't have a permanent figurehead to blame. The Corporate Party owns the only candidates they'll display in the Corporate Party media. The game is rigged for the Corporate Party to win.

    A vote for Obamney or Rombama is as good as a vote for Hitler or Stalin.
