This goes to a much bigger issue. Overcharging of insurance companies and the taxpayer by health care providers is by far the number 1 problem with U.S. healthcare inflation. Everyone loves to blame Big Pharma and the insurance companies but it's doctors, hospitals, specialists who are constantly overcharging insurance companies, sometimes by as much as 900%. And, a big chunk of the insurance (Medicare, Medicaid) is covered by the tax payer. Ridiculous. A friend of mine lost his grandfather recently. The death was expected but quite sudden. e night in the hospital, most of it as a corpse, and Medicare was billed $35,000US by the hospital. Expensive hotel room, I'd say.
Piers Morgan is lying when he says he wants Americans to own handguns. He is British, with the British mindset that all guns should be banned from homes.

Oh, and there's the totally fraudulent September and October unemployment numbers, numbers which you will see in a couple of weeks when November's figures come out, that were totally cooked by the Obama Labor Board and all but ignored by the MSM.

"Romney lost because he was running against an incumbent, was beaten up during a long and vicious primary fight, and ran in a year with a very different electorate from 1980." ...there's that and there's a media which refused to criticize Obama on anything but beat up on Romney on EVERYTHING, there's Superstorm Sandy which totally took the wind out of the Romney/Ryan surge and of course there's the small matter of rampant voter fraud.
CNN has been politicizing Sandy all morning against Romney and for Obama. First Soledad O'Brien and then Carol Costello. Costello called Fox News "Romney's Surrogate" but failed to mention that CNN is Obama's campaign HQ. Those "reporters" have no shame.

WSJ/NBC Poll: Romney: 47, Obama: 47

Gallup has Romney up 7% amongst likely voters, very small 2% M of E. Presumably the NBC poll has the usual D+9 slant and that's the only reason it's a tie.

The key here is that it was pre-arranged between Crowley and Obama, this whole thing was badly acted and if you watch the Benghazi debate sequence you can see Obama flub it (a) by approaching Crowley's desk when it starts and (b) his "Please Proceed Governor" speech.

"I can't figure out how New Media and Fox News have missed it altogether." ....at least so far, that is.

Remember, neither candidate was permitted to know which questions were going to be asked and neither were they allowed to collude with the moderator prior to the debate. Watch the whole sequence and you can see that this was a rehearsed and badly acted (by Obama) part of the debate. He gives the game away twice..once when he walks to Crowley's desk at the start of the sequence and once when he snottily proclaims "Please Proceed Governor." Crowley also gives the game away...she is clearly uncomfortable in her role but she must act it out anyway. Why this clear cheating isn't a huge scandal....I can't figure out how New Media and Fox News have missed it altogether.

This part of the debate was arranged between the Obama campaign and CNN which has basically been acting as 2nd campaign HQ for the president. I am surprised that Brent Bozell hasn't studied this part of the debate video more carefully. You have to watch it to believe it.
