Here's a good question for Romney: what differentiates your approach to foreign policy from that of George W. Bush?

My question for Romney would be:

You espouse the same economic plan that Reagan and both Bush's used during their tenures. In those 20 years, we had 20 deficits and 0 balanced budgets. And today the cost of government is going up and up, with more and more people on SS and Medicare. Why should we believe you will be able to balance the budget when supply-side economics has never done so, even when GW Bush had a Republican congress?

OR

You say you want to raise revenues with expanding the tax base by lowering deductions and eliminating exemptions. Considering that Grover Norquist would never allow that to happen, will you stand publicly against Grover Norquist and encourage congressional Republicans to follow?

I've got a bunch more but these two are my favorite.

This is our past 30 years in the U.S. in a nutshell.

Supply-side is bullshit.

This I would kill to hear an answer to.

Doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result each time...there's a word for that, I believe .

Can one of you kind souls tell me what time the debate will be shown in a certain city so I can figure out the corresponding Melbourne time? And where I might be able to watch it online? I'm gonna try and watch it live.

Also, I've managed to avoid Fox News my entire life until right now. So I've only seen two minutes of Fox News ever.

And wow. This is absolutely astonishing.

The debate is 8pm tonight in St. Louis.

But if you want to watch it online, just wait a bit until after it's over and watch it on youtube. That's what I did last time.

Forgetting key facts I believe is a quality shared by most politicians, might explain some of our problems if all have dementia.

Can somebody please tell me that guy is not a real doctor? All that bullshit about i'm not sayin he has dementia/alcohol problem but hell he sure looks like he might. He really needs to reacquaint himself with some medical ethics/his own sanity.

He is a real MD. A psychiatrist. He has testified in several high profile cases. He is working for Fox so I guess he has to tow the party line . But that's completely professionally inappropriate. Maybe he's more interested in media attention.

Also, anyone with any good questions should e-mail them to Candy Crowley. It's a town hall format, so I don't know how the questions will work. But it's worth a try. Or send them in for the final debate.

Ok i've read some of things that this supposed doctor and gentleman who uses science has previously said in relation to Chaz Bono and Newt Gingrich, he's a grade A quack and I'm pretty sure any of the first year junior docs on my ward could absolutely humiliate him.

It bothers me when politicians espouse such crap, but any medical professional that states this kind of thing, it's just beyond the pale. I think if this gentleman was a currently practising professional here, he would be up before the General Medical Council for bringing the profession into disrepute.

Or we could hear "so Mr Obama, you keep talking about going back to plans that we had during the Clinton administration when it comes to improving the economy... would the "houses for everybody" plan, which ultimately is what led to the mortgage bubble popping, be a part of that plan, or no?"

I'd also like to hear "what will you do in office to help overturn the Citizens United ruling?"

It would also be nice if we could get a "when will one of you grow a set, stop bowing down to party ideology at all costs, and actually, ya know, lead? Specifically you, Mr. Romney... is your new/old run towards the center an honest attempt to get back to who you were as governor of Massachusetts after years of cow towing to the hard right douchebags in order to get elected, or are you just another opportunistic hypocrite?"

And perhaps, just once... "when will one of you dickwads do something real about gun control?"
