Because he can't write the legislation.

Name the deductions & loopholes he will eliminate to balance out his 5 trillion tax cut?

Don't you think Romney and Ryan deserve the same courtesy in revealing the details that Obama and Pelosi got when crafting Obamacare?

......Obama’s debate performance was not as weak as Andrew makes it out to be. I have a family member who heard it with her housemates on the radio (from a farm in New Mexico) and they thought it a draw. Not bad, seeing as Obama was forced to confront a completely different Romney than the one who had been running for the past 18 months, and had to decide on the fly how to deal with that new phenomenon.

Mitt moves to the center. Why? Because you can't win an election with just the FOXbot vote.
What are they, 2% of the voting public?
all fine and well. 70 plus people watched doped up O'bama on TV-if we could just get everyone to listen to conservative radio, the people of the United States wouldn't have elected the communist, O'bama, in the first place.

So, you are telling us the only specific Romney mentioned in the debate was something irrelevant.
No...but that's the ONLY thing the Obama supporters HEARD. Big difference.

Again, his SPECIFIC was the criteria to determine the NEED to borrow money from China to pay for something, to rate the importance of money that is needed to be spent to money that is spent on something that can support itself.

What is hard to understand about the CONCEPT, not the EXAMPLE for the concept.

Romney’s proposal to zero-out federal spending for public broadcasting will have little to no effect on Sesame Street’s budget because the show receives “very, very little funding” from PBS, Sesame Street’s executive vice president Sherrie Westin told CNN last week. Westin said the majority of the show’s funding comes from corporate sponsorships, product sales and donations.
“Quite frankly, you can debate whether or not there should be funding of public broadcasting. But when they always try to tout out Big Bird, and say we’re going to kill Big Bird – that is actually misleading, because Sesame Street will be here,” Westin said.“Big Bird lives on.”

Another famiy values pro life teatardican!!

WASHINGTON -- A pro-life, family-values congressman who worked as a doctor before winning election as a Tea Party-backed Republican had an affair with a patient and later pressured her to get an abortion, according to a phone call transcript obtained by The Huffington Post.

The congressman, Rep. Scott DesJarlais of Tennessee, was trying to save his marriage at the time, according to his remarks on the call, made in September of 2000. And, according to three independent sources familiar with the call and the recording, he made the tape himself.

That race featured charges culled from DesJarlais' divorce from Susan DesJarlais, which was finalized in 2001. The filing included allegations that he held a gun in his own mouth for hours in one instance and that he "dry fired" a gun outside his wife's bedroom in another.

For one thing moron Clinton didn't have a GOP that took a blood oath to block any kind of legislation that would help the economy and give him any kind of credit. The largest economic gains under Clinton were made possible by the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1993 when the Democrats still held the House and Senate.

EXPECT TO SEE MORE OF THIS: The Obama Cultists Crack Up, Jennifer Rubin writes. Note this:

The left’s freak-out is instructive of their view that Obama the candidate flopped but that liberalism as a cause was unblemished. In fact, Obama’s record and rhetoric on everything from hostility to business to regret for America’s international “triumphalism” to pro-abortion extremism (abortion up to the moment of birth, paid for by the government) to the expansion of the liberal welfare state is as close as a president has ever come to the left’s undistilled worldview. His failure to revive the economy after gorging on Keynesianism, like his one-man-wrecking crew in the “peace process”(evidencing the hard left’s antipathy toward the Jewish state), is, in essence, not only a personal failure. His ideas, the left’s hymnal, collapsed on contact with reality.

The left, as I suggested, may soon (if not before the election, than certainly after if he loses) reach the point in which Obama is trashed to save liberalism. It is not, the left tells us, the Keynesian record of failure that was to blame for the debate wipeout; rather it was Obama’s cruddy performance. It’s not that liberalism lacks a reform agenda that is both feasible and politically popular, you see. No, the problem was that Obama didn’t shout “Liar!” loudly enough.

Given a choice between casting off their false idol and giving up the cult of liberalism, there is no competition. Liberals will have no compunction about dumping Obama.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals is reinstating Montana's campaign donation limits.

The court intervened late Tuesday less than a week after a federal judge's decision opened the door to unlimited money in state elections – during the height of election season.

Conservative groups emboldened by the 2010 U.S. Supreme Court's Citizens United decision have made Montana the center of the fight over many campaign finance restrictions.

David Siegel Email To Workers Threatens Layoffs If Obama Is Reelected (UPDATE)
If any new taxes are levied on me, or my company, as our current President plans, I will have no choice but to reduce the size of this company.
Siegel has a history of injecting himself in to critical political events. In the “The Queen of Versailles,” the documentary chronicling Siegel’s quest to obnoxiously build the biggest house in America, the Florida real estate mogul claims he was “personally responsible” for George W.

In spite of what you probably think, it has NOTHING to do with the color of his skin. I have always been in favor of a strong defense, I side with Israel, and the regulations on businesses are keeping them from creating jobs and even starting new businesses.
And the fact there are fewer people with a full-time job now than when he was elected and the ones who had to take part-time to survive don't show up in the unemployment stats.
Just for starters.
Why do you want Obama to win?
What will Romney do to remedy that? He has proposed increased defense spending of $2.1 trillion and plans to attach it to GDP.
I side with the American people first and am against losing more American lives for an unnecessary war with Iran.
Sales of existing businesses are happening here, houses in this town are being sold in one day! And there are 50 new construction projects in the works for apartment complexes.
Businesses that only give parttime hours do so so that they don't have to pay benefits, this is not a new tactic. Walmart has been doing this for years and instructing employees on how to apply for Medicaide. Making healthcare more affordable will solve this problem. When Mitt said you just have to go to the ER and it will be free; it was absolutely preposterous. That is the reason that we have the healthcare problem in the first place, he of all people knows this and said as much when he created Romneycare in MA.

Romney lied during the debate when he said Obama spent 90 billion on green initiatives.
He lied when he said all companies that received help failed.
Name the deductions Romney will eliminate & loopholes he will end to balance out his 5 trillion tax cut.
The truth is that he does not know. I doubt he even made a list.
Romney doesn't give any details because he has no details.
NONE
He is plan is to sit down with Republicans & Democrats in Congress & come up with ideas. He has none.
The White House breaks down the $90 billion on green energy projects in the stimulus bill like this:

$29 billion for energy efficiency, including $5 billion for improvements in the homes and apartments of low-income households
$21 billion for renewable electricity generation, including wind turbines and solar panels
$10 billion for grid modernization, including millions of “smart meters” that read themselves, eliminating the need for meter readers
$6 billion to help establish factories to make batteries for electric cars and other components of advanced vehicles
$18 billion for fast trains
$3 billion for research and development into capturing and sequestering carbon dioxide
$3 billion for job training and scientific advances in green energy
about $2 billion to help build wind turbines, solar panels and similar “green” products
