Steve, you have adopted the debate style of Barack Obama. Right from the beginning, your CPB example, you have used a straw man. Geez, yesterday we had people pointing out that CPB only amounts to some infinitesimal part of the budget, thus it's useless to stop funding. Now comes Mr. Chapman complaining that the web site of Romney's campaign only mentions "reducing" the funding. Does nobody understand English?!?! Romney was using CPB as an example! His point was that he will look at EVERY budget item and decide whether it's worth continuing if we need to borrow the money from China to pay for it. Am I the only one who saw the debate?

Non chicago non columnists saw it differently....they do like employment....wish they'd preach what they practice though....

In Wednesday's debate, Mitt Romney said he will "stop the subsidy" to public broadcasting. That's good to know, because Mitt Romney's campaign website says he will merely "reduce subsidies for ... the Corporation for Public Broadcasting."

Kill Big Bird or just pluck some of his feathers? Or neither, in keeping with what often happens to promises made by politicians? As Ted Kennedy once said of Romney's abortion policy, "I am pro-choice. My opponent is multiple choice."

Barack Obama had a tough time in the debate because he was told he would be debating Mitt Romney, a self-described "severely conservative"...
