Governor Romney and President Obama: The Great depression began in the 1920's and became full blown on October 29th 1929 ( Black Tuesday) with the collapse of the stock market and the failures of numerous banks. It lasted for almost 15 years and ended after World War 2. During that time, numerous work programs were enacted as well as banking and investment regulations. Under the Clinton Administration, investment and banking regulations were rescinded, allowing investment firms and banks to merge and freely speculate on stocks and commodities, a situation that was identical to the 1920' and culminated in the financial crisis of 2008. It appears to be a case where history repeated itself. The current economy is nowhere near as healthy as it was in post WW2 decades. While there has been some improvement under the Obama administration, that improvement is small. Unemployment has come down slightly, but a growth in manufacturing has been insignificant. Bipartisan cooperation is non existent and the type of jobs act that FDR had instilled have been repeatedly denied by Congress. Given that the 2 major parties have refused to enact job creation bills or fund stimulation programs, and the current Bush Tax Cuts are an item that the GOP insists upon keeping my question is as follows: Mr Romney, how long do you think it will take to return the economy to a healthy status under the current status quo? > Mr Obama, same question.

How does the President of the USA reign in people such as Mitch McConnel and John Boener whose only visable and avowed goals in life are to try and make the President's life miserable. They wind up hurting the American people and stiffle progress as well as the well intended efforts of the President with their sinister right wing conservative behind the door games that sabotage the efforts of others with those chicken /***88 grins on their smirking Republican faces. why can't something be done to rid us of these rotten trees blocking the passage of everyone and every thing that aspires to make America better?

The house has passed many good things the last 2 years only to have Harry Ried kill it in the Senate. 3 1/2 years and no budget has been passed thanks to the democrats in the Senate. Don't blame any one but Harry Ried for nothing getting done.

Much of the statements identified here thus far have nothing or little to do with Foreign Policy! The Question I wish to ask Mr. Romney is: "What would you have done different then the president to counteract the killings at our Embassy, knowing that a commander has to delegate authority to subordinates - as he is unable to know everything that is happening around him at all times?" and "As President, what would you do with Iran, should they defy the the world and continue to pursue their nuclear ability - would you involve America in another war we cannot win?
