For All Points-Of-The-View.

 


Presidential debates are not, and should not be allowed to deteriorate into "reality" TV shows of the ilk of "The Jersey Shore", "The Housewives of Hollywood", "Judge Judy" who routinely calls citizens "stupid" for her $45 million dollars annual salary, or the current "American Idol", where two Black women, Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey are made to fight and curse each other out, for the show to be considered "successful".
.
This unfortunate trend in American pop culture should stop if at all possible, and certainly not come down to affect presidential debates' substance and decorum.
.
I am also very weary and wary of all of these much-touted and so-called "close", 2 to 4 point margins in presidential election polls, such as those from the Bush I - Clinton, Bush II - Gore, Bush II - Kerry, or now Obama - Romney electoral campaigns.
.
Indeed, those numbers seem to be kept artificially "close" to create and maintain the hype around the election, just like that of any other major music or sports event, in order to keep the hundreds of millions of dollars in advertising revenues, flowing into the lap of media (the fourth power), which is the main beneficiary of all of this competition from both, and all sides.
.
At least one or a couple of free access 24 hours-7 days a week national broadcast televison channels dedicated to federal government affairs and elections, would go a long way in cutting through much of the pundits' noise, curbing the billions of dollars in TV ads electoral campaign expenses, and keeping the interested citizenry truly informed of all the relevant issues.
.
President Obama has done and continues to do a great deal for the people, the economic recovery, healthcare, the auto industry, jobs creation, women's rights, green energy, education, student loans, historically Black colleges, end to home foreclosures, the Dreamers, comprehensive immigration reform, stopping the wars in Iraq and soon Afghanistan, consumer protections, equity and justice in taxation, and on, and on...
.
In addition, the next President will also have the opportunity to nominate 4 or so new judges on the US Supreme Court during the next term, and change for good or for bad, the entire course of this country's history for the next 20 to 50 years. Let Obama be that President, for the sake of the people and the sake of the nation.
