I'd also like to hear "what will you do in office to help overturn the Citizens United ruling?"
Important questions, especially the second one. The Citizens United ruling is so huge and so wrong.

The President cannot overturn a SCOTUS ruling, so that question would actually make no sense. And since the Citizens United ruling found that a previous bill was unconstitutional, it isn't as if Obama can be asked whether he would introduce legislation in that vein.

I signed an online petition before the last debate to get Jim Lehrer to ask about gun control. Of course it didn't work. Maybe someone will ask about it tonight.

He graduated from Brown and Johns Hopkins, but obviously that means diddly squat in his case. So irresponsible. I vaguely remember what he said about Chaz Bono, will have to Google the Newt stuff.

He's had his own (failed) tv show and has written mystery novels. He still practices privately in Massachusetts and NYC.

I love that Fox is talking about Biden having dementia. By that logic, they should've been equally concerned about McCain back in 2008, and had a doctor on to diagnose him, too.

And perhaps, just once... "when will one of you dickwads do something real about gun control?"
No argument on these, either. ESPECIALLY the gun control one. How the news stories popping up in the last few months alone about mass shootings aren't enough to wake people up, I don't know. But someone really needs to tell the NRA to shove off for once and get serious about this issue.

And I do agree that Citizens United definitely needs to be dealt with, but anitram makes a good point on that one.

5 things I need to see or hear tonight:

1) Enough dog-whistles to keep me howling at the moon until 3 AM.

2) A gay soldier booed.

3) President Obama's n-droppin' black church dialect.

4) Hillary Clinton sous le bus.

5) A vivisection of a failed presidency.

Hopefully the earthquake was felt in Hempstead and Obama woke up for this one.

Romney is out of the gate faster. Obama appears to be trying more, but struggling.

Romney should have told that kid to get a job from his parents

I'm finding that Romney is not actually answering any of the questions.

I'm not watching it on CNN because of that stupid response graph line. It drives me crazy. ABC doesn't have it.

The idiot undecided voters pretty obviously prefer Obama (on CNN). I think these are generally pretty stupid people though and not a proxy for anything.
