Nevirim: Back at you. You will never see that all entitlement programs are set up by crooks for their own personal gain. Social security started in 1937. What did the elderly and infirm do for the first 160 years of the republic. It is a ponzi scheme. It was set up as one. It could never be anything else. As I posted yesterday, the nine scariest words a person can hear, "I'm from the government, and I'm hear to help.

In form, President Obama came back strongly in Tuesday's debate with Mitt Romney, but substantively he continues to lag behind the Republican candidate. That's because the president has a record to defend and it isn't a good one.

Television being what it is, the president looked and sounded good, but the air seems to have gone out of his messianic balloon as voters focus more on facts and less on spin.

If promises mean anything -- and they don't to most politicians -- Romney hit the president where it hurts: on his failure to live up to most of his promises.
