    The best question at the second presidential debate came from Michael Jones, an African-American who said: "Mr. President, I voted for you in 2008. What have you done or accomplished to earn my vote in 2012? I'm not that optimistic, as I was in 2008. Most things I need for everyday living are very expensive."

    To which Obama said: "Are you my half-brother?"

    Actually, all Obama could say was that he had ended the war in Iraq (while pointlessly escalating the war in Afghanistan) and that Osama bin Laden is dead (and so is our ambassador). Both of which must be a great comfort to Mr. Jones as he tries to pay his bills every month.

    Jones was right: Since Obama has been president, everything you own -- your home, pension, savings accounts, weekly paychecks -- are all worth less.

    Meanwhile, everything you need -- gas, food, and anything else that requires fuel to be transported to you -- costs more.

    Obama can't talk his way out of his record. As Romney said in response to the president's allegation that he is gung-ho about drilling for oil to lower fuel prices: "But that's not what you've done in the last four years. That's the problem."

    Obama also suddenly announced: "I'm all for pipelines. I'm all for oil production." But he vetoed the Keystone pipeline.

    He explained that the price of gasoline was $1.80 when he took office because the economy was in the toilet. Apparently, prices have spiked to more than $4 a gallon because all Americans are back at work now and making big bucks!

    Obama said the "most important thing we can do is to make sure that we are creating jobs in this country."

    So now he's going to create jobs? Because, nearly four years into his presidency, 23 million Americans are out of work and more than half of recent college graduates can't find a job.

    He claimed to believe that we should reward "self-reliance," "individual initiative" and "risk-takers." And yet, a few months ago, he ridiculed these self-reliant risk-takers for thinking they were "just so smart," sneering "if you've got a business, you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen."


    Obama said we have to be "serious about reducing the deficit," calling it "a moral obligation to the next generation." But he's increased the deficit by $5 trillion -- more in four years than President Bush did in eight.......

    It's easy to gain momentum when you're going downhill.

    The answer Romney gave was perfect "you know better than that". obama never answered Michael Jones' question. If things are so good, how come they are so bad. No matter how obama tries to lipstick this particular pig, that's the one thing he can't overcome. When Michael Jones puts gas into his car at close to five bucks a gallon and goes to the grocery store to pay close to five bucks for a box of Cheerios, forget chicken that's $9.00 a pound, Michael Jones KNOWS and is not persuaded that college girls can get free birth control.
