Presidential Candidates May Confront Disability Issues at Town Hall Debate

Howdy Comrades!

For the first time in memory, a blind person may actually get a chance to ask a question at tonight's Town Hall Presidential Debate.  Only about 18 questions will be asked of Gov. Romney and President Obama, but isn't it about time they answer one question of interest to disabled Americans, their families and friends? 

My very cynical comrades claim there's no way a blind man will be allowed to participate in such a crucial national debate.  They may be correct, but if we are denied the right to ask one question, we must conclude that both candidates view the disabled as a marginalized community, unworthy of airtime.  Stay tuned folks!

Addendum: When my Comrades are right, they are right on! I was naïve to believe questions of importance to the blind and disabled communities would be picked for the Presidential Debate. I believe the President got Romney’s goat when he mentioned those investments the Governor has in China.
