Superpacs on both sides have spent enormous sums to remove moderates and those who have worked accross the asle, replacing them with candidates from the extreme sides of each party, further widening the gap, and ensuring that the girdlock will continue, and prevent solutions from being reached. My question to both candidates is how will each seek to end the gridlock in Washington and govern for the good of the whole country ?,

Accurate observation, and good question. But don't hold your breath waiting for an answer....

While BO doesn't have much to reverse himself on, because he has never said anything concrete since he was elected. For example, did he flip-flop on closing Gitmo, or was it total BS from the start? Haven't heard anything about it since he took office, along with a lot of other campaign promises...

Romney Question:Why are you pushing for government that's SMALL when it comes to HELPING people but BIG when it comes to helping Business?
Mary Chase October 13, 2012 at 02:35 PM
A thriving economy, meaning successful businesses, DOES help people, because they will be employed and productive and will rise up above the poverty line. Welfare programs don't do that, they keep people languishing at the poverty level, witness the LBJ program that has given us 50 years with no progress but more welfare than ever before, i.e., "The Great Society," and it's the minorities who have suffered the most.
