This week President Obama begins his first campaign tour of the 2012 election, touring five key swing states this week: Iowa, Arizona, Nevada, Colorado, and Michigan. The independent or undecided voters in these crucial states are what will decide the 2012 election. The Takeaway turns to two such voters to see which issues are most important to them.

Larry Reinsch is state organizer for the Independent Voters of Iowa. Dan Starr is a registered Independent from Tucson, Arizona.

How about the "collective amnesia" of this administration which according to reports claim that high salaried aides owe hundreds of thousands in back taxes? Is that worth investigating considering the pronouncements of this President?
If Romney's perfectly legal tax returns and the activities of a private firm like Bain are an issue than why not the tax returns of this administration who we all pay taxes to support?
Instead of the media chasing straw men arguments created by the Obama campaign how about looking at actual malfeasance in tax returns?
