Last night on Greta she interviewed the fellow that asked the question about who made the call to remove and deny security to the Benghazi consulate. After some irrelevant bantering, he admitted that he had further discussion with Obummer off camera post debate. From what he said, the question was never answered, but at the conclusion of the interview Greta asked him if he had made up or changed his mind. He said 'No" he was still on the fence but that he agreed with all of Obummer's progressive social agenda, but did state that Romney had a record of financial success. It became clear that guys like him claim to be undecided just to receive attention and that he will vote for Obummer.

I agree about that format. I don't know why they don't make them more like a real debate with clear topics and give each participant a set time to argue for, against, rebuttal, and rejoinder. Then move on.

The best question at the second presidential debate came from Michael Jones, an African-American who said: "Mr. President, I voted for you in 2008. What have you done or accomplished to earn my vote in 2012? I'm not that optimistic, as I was in 2008. Most things I need for everyday living are very expensive."

To which Obama said: "Are you my half-brother?"

Actually, all Obama could say was that he had ended the war in Iraq (while pointlessly escalating the war in Afghanistan) and that Osama bin Laden is dead (and so is...
