Blue State Politics: What Would YOU Ask Obama and Romney?

Have a question for the candidates? Submit it below and it could be asked during the televised Oct. 16 Town Hall Presidential Debate. We want to know what Maryland wants to know.

If last Wednesday’s presidential debate left you with questions, here’s a chance to ask a follow up. No moderator required.

After the vice presidential debate this Thursday between Vice President Biden and Rep. Paul Ryan, R-WI, the next presidential debate will be Oct. 16 in a town hall format at Hofstra University in Long Island.

Voters will ask President Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney about domestic and foreign policy.

If you follow me on Twitter, @EdgewaterPatch, you'll know that I like to add a little humor when Tweeting about the debates. Whether it's Jim Lehrer looking like a replacement NFL referee or cracking jokes about Big Bird, I always like having a little fun during an election year. 

However, as we move closer to the next big presidential debate, it's time to get serious. I want to know what you want to know. 

We're asking you, the reader, to participate by submitting questions for the candidates.

All you have to do is post your question in the comments section below and we’ll send it to the Commission on Presidential Debates. The Commission is partnering with Patch's parent company Aol, along with Google and Yahoo, to take questions from web users across the country.

In these last weeks leading up to the election, we've asked are you better off than you were four years ago, does a presidential contest turn on one leak of a videotape and who would win the first presidential debate?

You've had lively discussions on those topics in this forum. How would you do on the national stage? 

I want to know what Edgewater, Davidsonville and south county would ask. Share your questions in the comments.

No one is listening to what Mitt is saying ... he's coming up with a new explanation for his stance on the 47 percent. I'd ask Mitt to show us his tax returns or did the records get burned as he claims the Labor Dept did with the percentage of employment under Obama? Also, I ask him to explain "Leverage Buyout" where he earned millions. I don't have a question for Obama because I believe he's being truthful with us.

Is the fungal meningitis outbreak a proper topic for a public debate, and if so, what do you think should have been the response when a smaller outbreak about 10 years ago in California prompted predictions of an outbreak just like the present, and call for tighter federal regulation of compounding pharmacies? Was this outbreak preventable, and if so, should it have been prevented, or is it better for us to save the cost of regulation, and instead just take the consequences of lax or unenforced regulations?
