A CNN/USA Today/Gallup snap poll taken immediately after the presidential debate Friday night found that respondents gave a slight, statistically insignificant edge to Sen. John Kerry over President Bush, 47 percent to 45 percent.

I spent the entire day thinking about last night’s debate and I really do have hope. It was good to see the candidates talk about issues like health care and jobs. The contrast is clear. I’m glad that John Kerry talked about his specific plans to improve America and get us back on track. I liked what he had to say about prescription drugs, stem cell research and affordable health care for all.

You can’t afford it, but you know you can’t afford to live without it. Can you see a doctor if you get sick? Will your child get the best care possible? Can your parents afford prescription drugs without your help? Yes, there is hope. John Kerry wants everyone to have better health care.

 

 

a. affordable prescription drugs John Kerry wants to lower U.S. drug prices by bringing generic drugs to market faster,ensuring lower-cost drugs.

 

 

b. affordable & accessible health care John Kerry wants you to have the same health care he has. He will allow anyone into the current Federal Employee Health Benefit Plan at a low group rate. John Kerry will also help lower family premiums and ensure that every child has health care.

c. women’s health research John Kerry will put more money into finding a cure for breast cancer, ovarian cancer and heart disease, the number one killer of women.

 

 

d. reproductive health John Kerry wants equal coverage for women’s reproductive health, including covering mammograms, pregnancy and birth control pills—not just coverage for men’s Viagra.

It pains me to say it but I thought John Kerry was stronger tonight than he'd ever been. He did seem to think he had some kind of message though he did not outline it for us tonight. He primarily used his time to forcefully pound Bush, using the word "mistake" many times. He appeared as friendly as he possibly could be, I suppose, smiling a few times. The orange tan was gone, and he looked relaxed though I think he did look very cold and haughty a few times and I just wanted to scream, "Arrogant bastard!" at the screen.

Women are witnessing an unprecedented erosion of their basic rights. Over the last three years, they've seen attempts to block access to contraceptives, gag doctors from even mentioning abortion to their patients, freeze funding for family planning across the world, take away their constitutional right to choose, and ban medical procedures even when a woman's health is at stake.

 

I can only think at this point that we need to go in another direction.

I think it's too early to call this debate because they were both so tough. It was, I thought, a great debate, because the questioners were good. The questions were tough. Charlie Gibson handled it brilliantly.

 

They each misstated each others programs. John Kerry overstated the job laws under George Bush by quite a good measure. It's 800-something-thousand in four years, not 1.6 million. And George Bush misstated John Kerry‘s education positions and health programs. So there was a lot of misstating.

 

I thought the president was on the defensive over Iraq, though, and that he misstated the Duelfer report—the broad conclusions of the Duelfer report—that there has not been weapons found, not that Saddam was trying to evade the sanctions. He recast it the way he has been for the last 48 hours, putting the best face on it. So I think that that is the downside, but I thought it was a very tough, not at all warm and fuzzy debate.

 

And it remains to be seen whether these guys were too tough for the pallet of the American voter.

No one knows who's going to win these elections.

 

Look!! for me, I am hoping that it will be Bush. Others are hoping that it will be Kerry. Who Knows???

 

That's the beauty of living in this country, because when it's all said and done, It's still up to the Voters.

Get a grip! It is not 1776 anymore. The same can be said of the countries of Australia, France, Germany, Switzerland, India, the Philipines, Denmark, Venezuala, Sweden, The Republic of South Africa, Finland and so on and so on.

 

Talking as if the U.S. is the only democracy in the world is just silly. Wake up. Smell the coffee. Look around. Talking that way is just propaganda pumping nonsense. If it implies a lie. So what. It makes Americans feel cozy and self-righteous.

Unless the Republicans field a surprise candidate, I don't see any of them beating President Obama. Their slate is horrible.

 

Agree. Interesting how Fox news did not pick up CNN's interview with Republican Kingmaker, Governor Christie. He publically stated that President Obama is a good leader.

 

Piers Morgan: Is President Obama a good leader?

 

Governor Christie: I think he's a good leader. Sure. Listen, he's the President of the United States. And I don't -- I disagree with him on a lot of substantive issues, but I'm not one of these people that says that somehow he's not a legitimate leader. He was elected President of the United States. The people spoke on that issue.

 

Piers Morgan: And that's good enough for you?

 

Governor Christie: It's a democracy. It's good enough for me.

He just might have got President Obama re-elected with that statement.

The Libertarian Party nominated former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson for President of the United States, expressing confidence he will be able to find effective small-government solutions to the country’s most pressing problems and mount a strong challenge to his major party rivals.

Mr. Johnson was declared the party’s Presidential nominee after he won 70% percent of the vote in the first round of balloting, receiving 419 of the 595 votes cast.

 

In his acceptance speech, Mr. Johnson promised to present a clear and viable alternative to major party candidates, saying his victory in November will offer Americans effective solutions to slow economic growth, high unemployment and endless foreign military commitments that sap the country’s financial strengths. America, for the first time in modern history, is poised to reject the tired two-party duopoly that has brought the nation to its knees economically.

 

“I am honored and I just want to pledge that no one will be disappointed. We’re going to grow the Libertarian Party.” said Mr. Johnson.

 

A successful businessman who lives in Taos, NM. Mr. Johnson is known as an unwavering crusader for fiscal responsibility, free enterprise and individual freedoms. During his gubernatorial tenure, he used his veto pen more than 750 times to forestall attempts to grow government and put an end to wasteful government projects. He cut taxes 14 while maintaining New Mexico as one of only four states in the country with a balanced budget. The state boasted a $1 billion budget surplus when Mr. Johnson left office in 2003.

 

The nominee’s biography can be found at garyjohnson2012.com/about

 

Mr. Johnson’s running mate will be chosen later today and can be watched live on C-Span. If no candidate for Vice President attains a majority on the first ballot, the candidate finishing last will be eliminated from the race. In addition, any candidate polling less than 5 percent will also be eliminated from the subsequent ballot. A candidate securing a majority of convention delegates will be the Vice Presidential nominee.

 

“I am convinced that Gary Johnson will be an exceptional candidate, and a very successful President,” said Mark Hinkle, Libertarian Party Chair. “We have an impressive roster of talent this year to challenge our Big Government opponents not only in the race for the White House, but also in state and local races. The major parties offer Americans only one solution: Bigger government. Libertarians will show voters how we can make government small while dramatically increasing jobs, lowering taxes, and scaling back government debt.”

 

Yesterday the convention approved a new party platform, which leaves unchanged the fundamental tenants of the Libertarian Party: Individuals should be free to make choices for themselves and to accept responsibility for the consequences of the choices they make. Changes adopted by party delegates were generally ones that improve the wording or clarity of the party’s intent to advance liberty and shrink Big Government. One significant change adopted was to add ballot initiatives to the party’s mission.

 

The Libertarian Party is the third largest political party in the United States, which is active in all 50 states and has more than 250,000 registered voters.

 

Libertarians call for ending government interference in personal, family and business decisions, much lower government spending, repeal of dangerous and unnecessary regulations, lower taxes, a currency free of government manipulation, free trade, and a peaceful, non-interventionist foreign policy.

 

Millions of Americans have voted for Libertarian Party candidates in past elections throughout the country, despite the fact that many state governments place roadblocks in order to keep third party candidates off the ballot and deprive voters of a real choice.

I think it is interesting how former President Clinton just goes slightly off-cue and everyone pounces on him.

 

 

Let's face it. Republicans strategy in Congress has forced the issue to extend the tax cuts or the economy will drop off a fiscal cliff.

 

I do not agree with every position of President Obama and the Democratic party. Bill Clinton is not a minion.

Not every battle has to be won. Let Republicans have this victory for the sake of our country.
