    You get to ask two questions of each candidate. What questions would you ask?

    Here’s mine…

    To Governor Romney:

    1. Please name a time where you chose the side of labor over management.

    2. Why would someone wanting to be President of the United States invest so much of his money in overseas accounts?

    To President Obama:

    1. You once supported a Public Option. Do you still and do you have plans in your next term to work towards one?

    2. What are your plans for the drug war in your second term?

    Dumb questions...obviously heavily weighted.
    What are your plans for the drug war? :lol: ....talk about a softball.

    Here is a question for Obama...
    1) Your are campaigning for "rebuilding the economy from the ground up...not the top down" - so why have you done exactly the opposite of that in your Presidency?

    Gov Romney, besides your skin color and Party affiliation, how is your candidacy any different that Obama's?

    To both men:

    "Are you for or against a Constitutional Amendment outlawing the Presidential Pardon? Why or why not?"

    There is no need for a pardon and almost every one of them is a nearly criminal act of personal hubris by the chief executive.

    "If elected in November, will you...in one of your budgets...institute a zero-based budgeting model and submit the budget to Congress above your signature?"

    This would highlight exactly what the President supports when he submits his budget. Starting from zero and just having the programs he supports in the buget. It will go nowhere but this would be a moment of truth for the President. Four years from now, it can be brought up at the 2016 debates, "Mr. President, in 2012, you submitted a budget that included no funds for the EPA..." for example.

    Ok here are my questions this one is for both men.
    Would you support term limits for members of Congress?
    For Governor Romney.
    Would you ever consider raising taxes to help raise revenue to pay down the debt?
    For President Obama.
    Besides defense what programs or departments you be willing to cut or eliminate to save money and pay down the debt?

    I would think that the concerns that any person has would generate the same question to go to each candidate.

    My thing is how to balance the budget, what is your plan and timeline?

    How do feel the Federal government should interact in the lives of the citizens and please cite the parts of the Constitution that you use to support this interaction.

    What must a President accomplish to be remembered as Great President?

    How do you plan to accomplish that?

    I would have no questions for Obama. He has shown his hand for 4 years now, anyone who doesn't know what to expect of him has their head in the sand.

    Here's how I read the OP

    To Obama:

    Why are you so awesome?
    How many more terms would you need to undo the damage done by Booooosh, 3? 4?

    To Mittens Robmoney:

    Die you fuck!

    I hate to sound like a troll but, talk about a bias questionaire. :lol:
    I was waiting for a third question to Obama being, If you were a tree, what tree would you be?
