Romney apparently agreed with Obama on gender equality in Afghanistan. It's just here in the U.S. he has a problem with it.

May I say that I don't think I'm going to see ever the USA as an "example"? And I dont think that the famous BRIC countries are going to consider you this way...
I don't live in a country you are going to colonize or saving from an islamic dictatorship, and, according to what happened in this debate, I don't think you are anyway interested in something different than wars... It's a poor way to consider your role in the world. But you chose it. And, ok, we will keep on considering you the bullies of the globe

All I could think about while watching the debate was how much I wished Ron Paul was there instead of Romeny. Then maybe there would have been an actual debate.

Ron Paul is not tolerable to the establishments elites, so you would NEVER see him in a debate like that.

All that we have seen is that the military industrial complex is as alive-and-well as it was when "Ike" Eisenhower said these words:

"This world in arms in not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children."

"The cost of one modern heavy bomber is this: a modern brick school in more than 30 cities. It is two electric power plants, each serving a town of 60,000 population. It is two fine, fully equipped hospitals.It is some 50 miles of concrete highway."

"We pay for a single fighter with a half million bushels of wheat. We pay for a single destroyer with new homes that could have housed more than 8,000 people.

"This, I repeat, is the best way of life to be found on the road the world has been taking. This is not a way of life at all, in any true sense. Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from a cross of iron."

Outstanding comment. Though I understand the fear of oppression from an adversary, I also greatly appreciate the wisdom that balances it. Somehow we have to find a sane balance.

Well said; F&F You are a member of my tribe!

How about the idea of bringing our national political focus back to our shores, and generally directing our government resources to likewise come home, and do things a little more frugally, practically, and in less grandiose and globally pompous fashion, for a change, and expect/require that other countries, some who've been long-term client states of the US, to start doing likewise, and unlearn the semi-perpetual dependency arrangement that's apparently been amenable to politicians and policymakers in the past? America was founded on independence, but anymore, it's become something of a global AA meeting, and we need to liberate ourselves of a lot of this chronic, ongoing disorder complex-syndrome stuff, and neverending multi-hundred-billion-dollar promissory taxpayer liabilities associated with basically trying to govern half the world, if not the entire world, if some people's ambitions are to be correctly interpreted. Smaller is better, let's go more towards 6 trillion in debt, instead of 16, or 17, or 20, or 30, or...?

This would necessitate freeing ourselves from the grip of the global banking elite, something easier said than done.

Mr. Romney will flip flop faster than a flap jack.

What continues to amaze me this morning is that republicans are positively glowing over the fact that moderate Mitt has again reared his ugly head. Aren't you all in the least bit concerned that this is just more pandering on the part of a man who is so desperate to get in office he will say ANYTHING?

I'm sorry, if this guy wins, I won't be sleeping at night. How long before the Bush cronies will force him to do as they forced Bush? Drag us into another war. The man is a political hack of the worst kind. He is dishonest.

That's a pretty sad bumper sticker. Unfortunately, the other side can't do much better than "Obama/Biden 2012: the lesser of two evils":(

How pray tell is this different from Barack Obama, the first president to actually sign a law that allows the government to jail us indefinitely without our Constitutionally guaranteed due process rights?

I'm not crazy about that law. All I am saying at least this guy makes decisions in OUR best interests ...and if he would not have had such a horrific congress he would have been able to close Gitmo. But, when you had all those racist, anti muslim hawks in the congress, you have take what you can get.
Sorry saying Obama didn't do enough isn't reason enough to not vote for him. Stopping that political hack, Willard from taking us back to the Bush days and beyond is more than enough reason for me.
