    ARTICLE 1, SECTION 8, OF THE CONSTITUTION HAS THE SOLUTION TO ALL OF AMERICA’S ECONOMIC PROBLEMS

    Mr. President, you are going to be a one term President if you don’t wake up! We don’t need to borrow any money. Our Founding Fathers gave us three ways to balance the budget. Why do you not use the third way? Coin money and regulate the value there of; is the solution. Why do you ignore the real solution?

    China has adopted The Philosophy of Mixturism and Nature’s Basic Law of Economics by James M. Carroll. Why have you never read these books? You have to by-pass the Banking Industry, and put money where it is needed.

    Over thirty million businesses filed a tax return with the IRS last year. How can we allow less than ten thousand public traded corporations control the way we think about the economy? They have put the USA in a box. The Constitution does not give them the right to control the economy. Wall Street is a Gambling Casino.

    Mr. President, you and the News Media need to explore the Internet Free Press and get educated. We can not allow the Tea Party Terrorist to bomb the foundation from under Medicare, Social Security, and the Safety Net for the Poor Class. The Poor Class is hurting because of stupidity!

    Why is Michelle Bachmann, a non-candidate participating in the CNN debate and Fred Karger and Gary Johnson who are actual, declared candidates not? I thought a news organization was supposed to report on news factually, not create the news.

    One of the main job losses is companies going overseas, and still receiving tax breaks? Why not give companies tax breaks for keeping jobs here, Reagan economics workrd 25 yrs. ago because jobs were here, now its get the money and run...

    Why can't republicans talk about majorly cutting defense spending, ending two, and almost three wars overseas, as a way to balance the budget, instead of majorly doing away with retirement and medical care for seniors???????

    These people make me sick. The have no answers all they do is slam the president. Ask them why they have not worked with the president and are always fighting with him.
    We need a descent honest person who will say that they can't do something instead of saying they can fix everything.

    The can't and Obama will win again in 2o12

    On debates. Same old same old ideological non-specific answers. They think we are stupid. Do the candidate believe that with all the sops, the corps will not go abroad for manuf investment. Nothing they say will change that

    Mr.king as a republican you really took it easy on these nuts. These people don't have any answers for America. This is serious and CNN and other news median are not preparing the people for how bad things really are. Here is my question,if republicans get there way and it looks like they will, what will become of America. President Obama did not create this shit. It was old white ass bigots like those that stood on the podium tonight that caused this shit. What do they expect President Obama to do? If republicans want government out of their business and no regulations, why do we need the congress? why not dissolve the USA by state. It's dangerous. One MAN, Barack Obama has brought out all the evil and hate this damned nation was founded on. There is no help for America. You all know the truth.

    watching this debate, it shows more than ever that this group has no imagination or ability to lead, I think any one of them would take America back to the dark ages, I'm not against republicans, just this group of candidates and their rhetoric

    This is for John King...Wish There would of been a fact check present tonight. All the GOP guys and gal could do is complain about Pres. Obama...It was because the gop didn`t have any plans to get us out of this mess. To much time was wasted condemming the Dems...John how come you were such a weakling and allowed them to get away with talking so wrongly...you should of had more "guts" to make it more fair. How arrogant are these gop`s....Such stupid answers ..didn`t make sense because they couldn`t come up withNO new ideas....Not good at all.

    As I was watching the debate I got to be focused on the audience. I couldn't find any people of Color. In other words that audience wasn't a cross sectIon of america.. It just seemed wrong to me. Was wondering if any one else noticed?
