Call me old school. Tell me to get a sense of humor. But watching politicians yuck it up always makes me cringe. It reminds me they are all in on the game. They raised $5 million for a Catholic charity last night? So much for the recession. Times are good. At least at the Waldorf.
With their third and final debate looming Monday, President Obama and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney campaigned in pivotal swing states again today. The debate in Florida, which will focus entirely on foreign policy, is the last time the candidates will go head-to-head before November 6.
The fiery mood of Tuesday's debate transformed into a light-hearted one last night. Both men joined Mayor Bloomberg and Governor Cuomo at a fundraiser at the Waldorf Astoria that raised $5 million for various Catholic charities.
President Obama joked, "I had a lot more energy in our second debate. I felt really well rested after the nice long nap I had in the first debate." And Governor Romney, dressed in a white-tie tuxedo, said it was nice to "finally relax and wear what Ann and I wear around the house." What do you say?
What question do you want answered at the third and final debate? How important is Monday's face-off in shaping your opinion on who to vote for? What's your reaction to the candidates taking a night off the campaign trail to fundraise for charity?

I thought the Al Smith affair was great. On foreign affairs, Obama has to get the heat for covering up the Embassy affair.
I will be watching the debate, these two cant hold a candle to Chris Rock, funny as hell !!!

I would ask both candidates: when 30 percent of all released prisoners are released , why after five years they end up back in jail. Also what can be done to stop making the US largest jail population in the world/
The incumbent President should be a shoe-in. He should have a huge lead. Romney is doing so well he has forced Obama into a tight race which now Romney has taken the lead over Obama......
Obama does not know how to deliver what he promises. All the people who are in the middle who gave Obama a chance are going back to Romney!
Obama is losing the Jewish vote.
Obama has failed on Iran.
Obama has told Russia to wait after the election.
Obama does nothing with China.
Obama had failed in Libya cover up.
Obama is claiming he got bin laden? He didn't start this. This has been in progress for 10 years.
Obama has not closed Guantanamo like he promised.
Obama increased troops in Afghanistan
I could go on with 20 other points!!!
If you think the media is biased toward the right, you ain't nuts. You are LYING!

I DON'T NEED TO WATCH THE DEBATES ANYMORE ROMNEY EXPOSE HIS REAL SELF WITH THE 47% COMMENTS PLUS HOW CAN HE HONESTLY SAID THAT HE CARES FOR THE MIDDLE CLASS WENT HIS COMPANY IS OUT SOURCING JOBS TO CHINA.
Why is the world pointing fingers at anyone but the Bush Administration. The Persistent is cleaning up their mess just like clinton tried to. The president should won and then resign. Let Redicolous Romney try and mother and father this country.
Do you think the skyrocketing abuse of prescription drugs play a part on the rising cost of health care?
I would like them to address the current situation of Genetically Modified Organisms - California's Prop 37 -to label GMO's - why not implement in the USA - they do this in Europe and China - and some have banned GMO - why not the US? What steps/plan will they enforce to ensure that US citizens at least have a choice?
