    Why is this debate limited to only cable channels? Fox really blew it on that score. I’m angry, and tired of the “elites.” Obama has killed the economy so that many of cannot afford cable television. Have mercy. Let working poor get informed. Otherwise you will get a bunch of low information voters to elect another anti-American monster.
