If You Could Ask the Presidential Candidates One Question, What Would it Be?

Patch wants to hear from our readers.

Tuesday night's presidential debate at Hofstra University differs from the others in that it delineates a more limited role for the debate moderator.

Questions aimed at President Barack Obama and Gov. Mitt Romney will be driven by audience members.

Patch wants to know if you had the opportunity to ask the candidates one question - what would it be?

The town-hall debate is planned for Oct. 16 at 9 p.m. at Hofstra University in Hempstead.

I would ask Romney to be honest about what he intends to do regarding legislating what women do with their bodies. I would ask Romney about selecting a running mate who voted to slash the security budget for our embassies and then turned around and blamed President Obama. I would ask Romney why, when Bush was president, everyone rallied around our country after it was attacked, but the same respect was not given to this administration when our embassy was attacked. I would ask Romney why he favors giving more tax breaks to the wealthiest of Americans, who pay proportionately less taxes than I do (making less than $100,000 a year). I would ask Romney how he intends to slash the deficit when the three Republican administrations before him could not do it. Gun control would also be a great topic for both candidates.

I would ask President Obama why he keeps taking credit for killing Osama Bin Laden when in fact "he didn't do that". This was inevitable given the many years of searching and planning by our brave, gifted and talented military. What else have you got President liar? You've got 4 dead Americans and more lies. Disgusting.
