Commentary: These People Might As Well Vote Throwing Darts

Duh which way did he go George, which way did he go?

Tonight is the second Presidental debate between President Barack Obama and republican challenger Mitt Romney set in a Town Hall format. Questions during the 90-minute debate, which takes place at 9 p.m. Eastern Time at Hofstra University in Hempstead, N.Y., will be asked by local uncommitted voters from a variety of socio-economic, racial and political backgrounds selected by the Gallup Organization. Roughly 12 audience members out of about 80 will get to ask questions, with moderator Candy Crowley of CNN determining which questions will be posed, and in what order.

Uncommitted voters? Are you kidding me? Who are these people?

 

President Obama has been in office nearly four years. His policies are well known, most famously the years long debate about healthcare, as well as issues about taxes, social issues like gay marriage, and the war on terror. His stance on a plethora of issues is well known. It pretty much favors liberal ideology.

 

Republican candidate and former governor Mitt Romney has been campaigning for the 2012 nomination since June of 2011 and has participated in 23 of the 26 primary debates.His stance on taxes, the war on terror, and healthcare have also been laid out. His ideology is more conservative to moderate.

 

With today’s access to the media on so many levels, TV, radio, internet, newspapers, etc. the amount of  information made available to the voting public needed to make an informed decision has been overwhelming. So how on earth can anyone just three weeks away from election day, NOT know who they want to vote for right now? What is it you are waiting for that you cannot make up your mind? More info? Like what? The truth of what is going on with these undecided voters is when they get into the booth to vote, it is going to be eenie, meeny, miney, mo.

Things were relatively civil in Tuesdays debate between gubernatorial candidates Democrat Dan Malloy and Republican Tom Foley in their third of four debates at Fairfield University.  The candidates sparred over issues such as health care costs, jobs, taxes, and the continued charges accusing one another of not telling the truth and spreading inaccuracies about each other.

From The Connecticut Mirror:

FAIRFIELD–It took an introduction by a Jesuit priest, but Democrat Dan Malloy and Republican Tom Foley dialed back the zingers Tuesday in the third of their four televised debates in the race for governor.

Moderator John Dankosky of WNPR only had to interrupt once when Malloy and Foley briefly reverted to the hostilities all-too-evident in their previous encounters, sharply silencing them when an opportunity to question each other quickly devolved into cross-talk over Malloy’s characterization of Foley’s position on health-care mandates.

The two major-party candidates – Independent Tom Marsh was excluded, as was the case in previous televised forums – agreed on Connecticut’s need to change direction in economic development, health care, education and transportation. Read full article.
