Hi Adam - Agreed. Most will likely watch the football live and then need to rely on the pundits from both sides for spin. I hope they (the VP candidates not NFL) address tax reform (tired of doing my taxes twice with AMT) and overall spending reforms (give the gov't liposuction and restructure long term structural deficits so younger folks can plan). Actually, never mind, I'd prefer the NFL address these issues instead.

If I were Biden, I would be all over how politically and ideologically split the Republican ticket is between Romney and Ryan. And with Romney's mad dash to the center, away from everything that he has been campaigning on up until last week, is even more of a mad dash away from what Paul believes in. I would be asking Paul how it feels to have compromised your character to stand shoulder to shoulder with somebody who is now campaigning on everything that Ryan has spent his life campaigning against.

Who would have thunk it, Biden cleaned Ryan's clock tonight.

The people of the state of Ohio need to know that the republicans are a BIG part of the prescription drug abuse problem we have . Florida is one of the worst states for prescription drug abuse . The republicans in Florida fought for over 7 years against the database . First they claimed privacy issues and when that did not fly, they went on to budget issues . Under severe pressure they passed a watered down version of a database . The doctors are not required to report the controlled substance scripts they write . The drug dealers love this . They can go to 10 doctors a day and get as many scripts as they want . They pay cash and there is no paper trail . This country needs a national prescription drug database , not just state by by state . Just like we have a national drivers license database . In Florida the republicans would only pass the watered down database if the tax payers did not have to pay for it . They figure the cost to be 1 million a year to keep the database on line , so do the math . I dont believe anyone other than the republicans would disagree to pay for it. The money was never the issue anyway . The issue is that the republicans protect the profits the drug companies and doctors make . For this one reason alone I would never vote for a republican . Please vote for Obama in 2012 .
