    2012 Presidential Election

    Concerned voter level of interest across the country is running higher than anyone can remember. Both camps are campaigning feverishly. Late breaking news and unexpected revelations are the new normal in the news. Media's have a field day. So, I figured there must be a few opinions, views and boos waiting to be expressed by RHP Members on both sides of the Atlantic and, for that matter, the Pacific as well. If this impersonal thread doesn't pull at least twelve (12) posts I'll eat the slipper I lost a few days ago. Also, I'm willing to put myself on the line. A one of a kind prize will be awarded to the poster(s) making the 12th, 112th and 212th post to this thread: Personal use of the advertising space of my RHP Profile for one week. Winners will simply send a Personal Message containing the text they wish to use. As long as it's in good taste, I'll Copy & Paste it. So, break a leg. Knock yourself out in the interest of informing and entertaining us all. -gb

    The first debate between Romney and Obama on 12.10.03 drew 67.2 million viewers. Tonight may exceed 70.0 million according to media estimates. Now, that's a big number!

    I shall resist the impulse to rattle of 8 quick posts, and defer to the US electorate.

    look on the bright side, apart from an extra thumb down for the title post and a thumb up for suzianne, it is a perfect 2.

    The vast majority in this country don't have a *clue* what is going on in politics and don't care. The offer of "free" contraceptives has attracted some of the clueless over to the Obama side, so I must admit it was a crafty move on his part.

    But you don't really need much a clue to see where each Presidential candidate stands. All you have to do is look at the folks they are endorsed by.

    Obama is endorsed publicly by intellectual giants like Madonna, Bill Maher, and Whoopi Goldberg... and by compassionate, peaceful leaders like Castro, Hugo Chavez and Vladmir Putin. By attrition, he is also ostensibly endorsed by the Taliban, Al Qaeda, Hamas, and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

    I could go on, but why bother? The line of demarcation is crystal clear.

    "The line of demarcation is crystal clear."

    There's truckloads of this stuff already in the Debates forum. Most of us in the rest of the world couldn't give a rat's bottom about US Presidential elections. Please take this over to Debates forum, Mr Mod.

    Sorry about this thread. Though well intentioned, it was inappropriate for the General Forum and improperly formatted for Debates. Please forgive.
