if you dont think debates are apart of the democratic process, then I guess theres no sense in debating with you. Presidential debates have gone on since the time of Abe Lincoln. The first televised on was John F Kennedy v Nixon. Just cause we have access to watch them without being there in person does not make me less than you...
you might assume, and wrong, that I or others watch them for entertainment. If I want that, I'll watch SNL or Pro Wrestling. If I want to see one on one wit vs wit to help determine the next leader of our country. I'll watch a debate.

Isnt it too late for fingerpointing? I propose that we all get right down to the nitty gritty and blame it on the last 200 years, that this action was even planned by the Elites of the world many moons ago, that Bush is the Patsy to deliver the news, that Obama and McCain are both in on it, that what we are seeing, even the conflict of the debates are FAKE, that this is all acting, that nobody gives a rats behind about the non-rich, that we will be brought to our knees, the world will be brought to their knees, and i propose that those out of their comfort zones get up and smell the coffee.

I looked up the word in a dictionary and saw Obama's picture right by it.
Is Obama not a US Senator?
Did he not take an oath to carry out his job?
Then what is he waiting for. Somebody in Florida please buy him a bus ticket back to Washington.
Let them show us that when they get elected to an office(like senator), they do the job that they promised to do.
There was bipartisan support for the main purposes of the bill but opposition among many Democrats to a provision prohibiting participation by non-profit housing agencies in voter registration and other non-partisan electoral activities.
Unfortunately, the bill was blocked by democrats who complained that the oversight would prevent lenders from giving out risky loans to those who couldn't afford them, and the bill was killed.
