    Doesn't it seem that every week we get more and more distracted in the pres election campaign?

    When are we going to hear the candidates talk about themselves, their records, their goals, plans and their solutions for the country. How are they going to stop congressional gridlock. The debates have been useless in discussing the critical issues, as they focus on the personal attacks. They would be great if this was professional wrestling, but it is to determine the next president.

    The professional politicians in this race need to tell us what they did in office, and what they plan to do if elected as president. Now, the candidates are as effective as congress during gridlock.

    Republicans focus on personal attacks, mostly because of Donald trump! Democrats debates have been all about issues. Of course, now that the race is heating up, they will start insulting more, too. It's the nature of the beast.
    Also, the gridlock in gvt is the plan for governing the Republicans adopted the day Obama became prez.
    Quite confused why you, as a Trump supporter, are complaining about candidates using personal attacks!  That's all Trump does!

      Liberals have regularly denied conservatives even have reasoned positions, simply call them racist, sexist, -phobic. The debate for them starts at name calling when you don't agree with them.

    I heard it described as "let's elect a president, the reality show"
