I don't know. How many on this site are in the 10% of "undecideds"?

I almost had the feeling that Lehrer, while he looked partial, was secretly giving Obama "fail breaks" as if to show, even with some help he was still a fail.

But I recall that it was my father (who worked full time), who spent nights with me at the dinner table going over my homework with me. My mother spoke very little English, so it was up to him. He could have just packed it in after 9 hours on the job and a long commute home -- but come 8 o'clock, he was my tutor.

Parents (or some surrogate thereof) should be every child's #1 hero -- and those of us who can claim that are truly blessed.

Our grandparents learned far more with far less. 'Nuff said.

Obama will have a lot more "flexability" - his own choice of words to the Russians - after his re-election.

True...because most here did not initially support Romney (I'm assuming). I contributed and supported my candidate, who lost the primaries. However you are kidding yourself if you think someone other than Romney or Obama will be president. You can either pick the one that you think is the better choice or you can pick one that will lose and help the incumbent retain his power. Your choice.

Never said anyone other than Romney or Obama would be president.

I said that until people in this county get smarter then the same two party system that has done immeasurable damage to this country and our future will still have the reigns of power.

And that may happen. It had the best chance during the Perot campaign. However it's not this time. Be smart about your vote.

I was answering a question that was asked of me. Skip over or block me if you don't want to read it.

Its the internet bro, I'm not kicking down your door and forcing you to listen to me.

And the cubs in the world series! Hahaha, we all know Gary Johnson has more of chance to be president than that ever happening!

Watching Hannity at the moment -- Pollster Frank Luntz is talking to a group of suburban Denver-ites. Of those that were undecided before the debate, about half of them have now decided to vote for Romney.

ETA: Luntz closed by saying that this is the biggest swing in opinion he's ever seen following a debate.
