I don't want political analysis. I don't want predictions. All I want is a reliable fact checker and some facts to check. I have seen very few from either candidate, especially Romney. We know all about where Obama is heading, and Romney is the black van with tinted windows inviting you to get in after asking you if you want a ride. What this article needed to say, is that we need to quit buying anything from either irrelevant candidate right now, and start focusing on where the real problems are: congress. The debates and even the presidential election, is a mere distraction that this article reinforces, compared to the actual problems in congress AND the supreme court.
