    Ms. Obrien:

    I m spending the cold months in St. Augustine, FL., and today while at a Starbucks at World Golf Village, PGA
    The Romney bus pulled in with a huge present of secret service etc., to greet a crowd at their convention center.
    NBC 4 and another news outlet was there to cover the event. It would make you sick to see all the Lexus,
    Benzs, Jags, Porche cars at this event and the side of the bus said I think taking back America. This should
    have been public knowledge to see the wealth at this Billion Dollar Estate. How in the world they can she
    and her husband even relate to the middle class and for god sakes the poor and homeless that they are
    working for that group when she speaks to million and billionaires in this community. Please obtain a copy
    of NBC 4 out of Jacksonsville's Coverage of this event not known to the public and I live in St. Augustine.
    This event was kept very private and should be shared with the general public asap. I hope you read this
    before tomorrow morning for your news crews covering this fisaco to all of America. The Picture will
    speak volume when just seeing where she chose to speak and it's surrounding by million and billionaires.
    Like the move the Steford Wifes of the 60s Thanks for considering to allow the public to see the
    real circus tent of deception.

    Hi Soledad,
    Do you ever get tired of hearing your own voice? What are the qualifications for your job? Airline Attendant?
    You are soooo bias! It is soooo sickening!
    Obviously, you are for Obama. Good luck with living in a solialistic society. Remember this: The rich (you) will get poorer, too!
    You might consider the idea of people WORKING for their money. A lot of people have fallen on hard times, but most people want to work for a living. You know . . . a real job. (Unlike your job.)
    Also, who cares about having TV personalities on your show?! This is a crucial time in America. You couldn't spend more time addressing the real issues? Why don't you ask the question: What does Donald Trump know? I'll bet he knows that Obama used Kenya as his birth-place, so that he (Obama) could get lots of free perks to go to college. The "level the playing field President" made sure that his playing field was tilted HIS way. What a phony!
    Have a nice life, living in socialism with Obama!

    Romney will win Ohio, Virginia, Florida , Colorado and perhaps Wisconsin and Michigan . Polling over samples dens in all these states. Undecided voters will break for Romney and overall dem turn out will be below 2008 levels delivering Romney to presidency.

    I wish you would talk about Romney with the same loving tone you use when you talk about Obama. I turn to CNN to get an unbiased report of the current news.

    As far as Richard Mourdock, any Christian person understands he was talking about the life which is created not the violent act of rape. God has the power to turn evil into good. The media wants to make this statement something bad. At the end, it comes down to what you are called to do in this world. As a Christian, we are called to evangalize and pray that people accept the love of God thru Jesus the Christ. If people do not want to listen and want to go off on their own, that is their choice and it will lead to darkness. We as Christians are called to spread the God News and pray for the world. Of course Replublicans want to take care of the poor and sick and we have always done that. Obama has made this nation poorer and on the brink of collapse. It is up to us to try and get this country back.

    I believe that Romney will take FL. Ohio is going to certainly going to be a nail biter. As of today, I think Obama will take Ohio( but it will be by a very close margin).
