What’s on Tap – Tuesday November 3rd, 2009

Here are the big stores we’ll be talking about today.

  • America heads to the polls.  The results in a number of key states could signal how voters feel about President Obama, his policies and whether they think Republicans can do better.  We're live in one of the battleground states.
  • A little measure on the ballot in Denver has the nation's attention this morning.  It makes it mandatory for cops to take your car if you can't produce a license.  But is it about safety or a backdoor way to enforce illegal immigration? You will hear from both sides right there.
  • We don't know how many there are, where they are or what they're doing.  A new report says the U.S. can't keep track of thousands of contractors on the payroll in Iraq and Afghanistan. Where is the accountability?  And how much could they be costing us.
  • They started before he was a candidate.  Then they realized a guy named Barack Obama was running for president.  It’s an incredible case of being in the right place at the right time for a group of filmmakers who ended up being eyewitnesses to history.  HBO will debut that documentary tonight.  Actor Edward Norton is among the producers.  Our Alina Cho talked to him and has a sneak peek.

    A year ago today, I voted for Pres.Obama .I saw this young man of promise,who wanted to uplift this country,to bring about true change. What this country needs is good leadership and I believe he has shown this,by acting prudently,to bring about unity instead of derision, He has engaged the American citizen to care about their government,to participate,to care about my neighbor,

    I do want to tell my friends that CNN is really unbiased and reports the news, but when I saw this mornings report, where the anchors marginalized the wins in Virginia & New Jersey describing them as follow common trends, while rolling a 10 min in-depth report on how a little impactive District 23 race in New York had important implications, I am unable to defend your opinionated reporting

    When speaking about Warren Buffett's purchase of Burlington Northern Railroad, John Roberts displayed real ignorance by proclaiming "When was the last time anyone wanted to buy a railroad?"

    It is most astonishing that someone in John Robert's position would be so ignorant about the role of railroads in the American economy. Mr. Buffett so eloquently stated "Our country's future prosperity depends on its having an efficient and well-maintained rail system." Mr. Roberts has not a clue.

    It's high time for CNN to hire intelligent new anchors. It's a shame what has happened to TV news – dumb down to the pits, driven solely by the profit motive. More ads, less meat, more for big execs and stockholders, less truth.

    "Enforce illegal immigration"??? What an odd locution! Do they really want to make people immigrate illegally? Or do you mean, 'enforce laws against illegal immigration', or 'discourage illegal immigration', or 'capture illegal immigrants'?

    Driving is a privilege, not a right. I would like to congratulate Denver on catching up wih Evansville, Indiana, where at 26, my car was impounded, AND I spent a night in jail, for driving on an EXPIRED license. That was 14 years ago!
