Only four days left until the South Carolina Republican presidential primary. That means only four days for the candidates to derail front-runner Mitt Romney off the path to the GOP nomination. At last night's debate in Myrtle Beach Romney fended off attacks on his business record, his personal wealth, and his moral character.

After I heard your interview with South Carolina's Republican Party chairman, I got the impression that the 15 %
tax on his investments were the SECOND TIME his earnings were taxed. Could you please clarify this for your
listeners ?
Regardless, I plan on voting again for President Obama !

What amazes me is how much attention the media gives to the negative attention given to Ron Paul for his views on military spending and foreign interventions, but so very little about how his support among those who serve and have served is so much higher than all the rest of the candidates. Has it occurred to folks that those who have actually fought for our country might have a better idea about who really understands what is important when it comes to topics regarding the military and foreign interventions? Clearly it hasn't to many Republicans who believe they are being patriotic when they put on their hawk hats and clamor for the swinging of the USA's big stick.
