Patch Collecting Questions for Obama, Romney

If you have a question for the candidates, submit it in the comments section below and it could be asked during the televised Oct. 16 Town Hall Presidential Debate.

If last Wednesday’s presidential debate left you with more questions than answers, here’s your chance for the presidential candidates to address the issues that most matter to you.

The next presidential debate will be a town hall meeting format at Hofstra University on Long Island, where voters will ask President Obama and Mitt Romney about domestic and foreign policy.

Patch is asking you, our readers, 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.

For Obama: 1) Why do you hate America (http://bit.ly/LmWbeg)? 2) Why would you, a Muslim, follow a Christian (Reverend Wright)? 3) How did Rmoney catch Osama bin Laden (http://bit.ly/Q9R4UH)? 4) How did you get the BLS to publish an unemployment rate below 8% (http://bit.ly/Q4sfYW)? 5) Why did you raise tax rates across the board but insist tax rates are actually lower under your administration (http://bit.ly/NvWoMC)? For Rmoney: 1) How cool was it to hold that gay kid down and cut his hair (http://abcn.ws/Kg6YuN)? 2) How can you sell a tax plan whose specifics no one, including you, knows (http://onforb.es/PViYld)? 3) Do the windows on your private jet really roll down (http://bit.ly/SsKIC2)? 4) What do you believe in (http://bit.ly/xkwGtj)? 5) When is a cut not a cut (http://bit.ly/JA5XxR)? 6) How can you say "Get tough on China" when your investments are in China (http://on.ft.com/R26FXj)?

I would ask Mitt Romney: "Mr. Romney, why did you lie in the first debate about 3-4 times more often than President Obama. Fact checkers and leading media outlets like the Associated Press have shown you lied at least 27 times in the 38 minutes you spoke. You told blatant inaccuracies about your healthcare plan, about unemployment figures and other topics. I thought the Republican Party was the party of integrity. With all of your lying, how can American voters expect you to tell the truth with your promises to them -- should you win the election? "
