Please tell us then why Romney will be soooo much better... I have yet to hear why he would be a better choice other than the fact that he isn't Obama..

Obama will soon accomplish something that no other president in history has ever done. He is only a mere $400 billion away from having added $6 trillion of debt in only four years. It is amazing that the mind set of liberals is such that $6 trillion in four years is good but $5 trillion in eight years is bad.

How much of that debt was already incurred by previous administrations? And isn't it funny that you "conservatives" never made a peep about the debt until your guy was out of office? And why were the wars not added into the debt total until after 2009?

Sorry, son, but I've been griping about the debt ever since it was a mere $3 trillion. Bush's $5 trillion was what chased me away from the Republican Party. You are missing the point, though. Five trillion in eight years was bad. Six trillion in four years is more than twice as bad yet you can't see it because of your blind obedience to "the one." As far as how much was from a previous administration, well, I suppose you could say the first trillion but don't forget that the last two years of Bush's presidency was dominated by Pelosi and Reid so in reality you will have to blame the Democrats for the last $8 trillion when you add those two years in. So there you have it. You guys have added $8 trillion in only six years and you made Bush look like a saint.(For that matter, you all made Jimmy Carter look like a saint.)

LOL.... "dominated by Pelosi and Reid ?" Really? You are drinking way too much of the Fool-Aid, "son". The fact is that Bush and his puppetmasters never included the cost of the "wars' in their debt figures, so the actual rise of the debt was not nearly as big as the Teabagged Retardicans would have you believe. And the effect of the tax cuts for the wealthy hadn't kicked to full fruition either. So to blame the Democrats for the whole rise in the debt is just not correct. Son.


And BTW, Jimmy Carter was a better President than any of the Retardicans that came after him.

And my allegiance is to this country, junior. You may want to join the few of us that remain.

Which tactic are you pinning your hopes on, Teddy? Voter suppression, falsified voter information, flipped voter machine tables?

Are the Repub's going to co-operate with Obama and Dem's in the next four? Or are they going to continue forging ahead with their backward march to 1950 and total irrelevancy?
