From a N.Y. Times commenter:
I'm... an independent who could not bring myself to vote for any of these republican candidates. In fact, I believe they would totally destroy this great country. I've not heard a single word that shows me any real leadership ability or any new ideas to bring this country out of this recession. All I hear are the same old lower taxes for the rich and get rid of regulations. These are the very policies that caused this great recession. They are also the same policies that caused the Great Depression.
