Maybe he needs to pull up his tighty whities and start acting like an adult. He can start by accepting the fact that he made promises that he can't keep, that he refusses to accept any blame for the state of the economy, and that he has been blaming a video to cover up a terrorist attack.
In the end it may very well be the Clintons that bring him down.

Churches who claim tax exempt status, and people like Romney who filter millions through their churches, who use those funds to influence ballot initiatives in other states should lose their status, pay taxes and be fined. This is not charitable; it's hateful. Imagine what good things the Mormons could do to help the poor with $28 million. Instead, they chose to use it to take away rights of gay people.
Stop being a dummy. Romney and the Mormons don't give a shyt about the poor.
Do you have a problem with tax-excempt Planned Parenthood spending money to influence ballot initiatives?

LDS Humanitarian Initiatives
Emergency Response is the part of the LDS Church’s humanitarian efforts of which most people are aware. Funds and supplies in this area are used to help victims of natural disasters such as earthquakes, floods, droughts, tornadoes, and hurricanes, as well as other disasters such as wars or political unrest. Supplies in this area are gathered and stored before a crisis so supplies can be sent literally within hours of an emergency. Volunteers are also on call so if they are needed they can be reached and organized within a few hours. The LDS Church is renowned for its ability to organize its members in various regions of the world to respond to emergency and facilitate distributing goods immediately after a crisis, often before aid programs such as the Red Cross or the Salvation Army come to assist. In 2008, the LDS Church responded to 124 disasters in 48 countries.[2] Wheelchair Distribution is another program of the LDS Church crucial to helping those in need. Studies estimate that only one percent of the disabled in the world have wheelchairs. For the rest, being without a wheelchair means for adults that they can not provide for themselves or their families, and for children it often means not being able to attend school. By providing wheelchairs to those in need, the LDS Church hopes to help people become more self-reliant which is an important tenant of LDS beliefs.[3] The Clean Water Service provides clean water and wells to people who otherwise would most likely contract deadly diseases because of the dirty water. It is estimated that one billion people lack clean water. The clean water program is designed to partner with local community agencies to provide sustainable clean water.[4] The Neonatal Resuscitation program sends doctors and volunteers to areas where infant mortality rate is high. They are able to teach people in the area how to resuscitate newborns as well as provide simple medical equipment. This service is greatly needed as it is estimated that nearly 1 million newborns die each year due to birth difficulties. Up to 10% of newborns have breathing difficulties.[5] The Vision Treatment Training program teaches facilities and medical personnel in developing countries how to treat preventable or reversible blindness. There are 37 million people in the world who are blind, and up to 75 % of blindness is treatable. The vision care program works with local vision health care centers to help treat and prevent blindness for the poor.[6]
In addition to these efforts, the LDS Church also has over 300 job development and placement centers around the world. In 2001, the LDS Church began the Perpetual Education Fund which provides money to cover tuition and other school expenses to people in developing nations. As of 2007, tens of thousands of individuals had been given assistance. So far this program has operated primarily in South America and Oceana. The LDS Church has also begun producing a nutrition-rich porridge named Atmit to help during acute famines. The LDS Church Welfare program owns farms, ranches, canneries, and other food producing facilities to provide temporary food relief for families and individuals. LDS Humanitarian Services frequently works with other charities and NGOs such as the Red Cross, Catholic charities and even various Islamic charities for which the LDS Church has produced halaal food.[7]

If you don't vote for Obama. Romney and Ryan will end social security, they will eliminate abortions and people will die in back alleys, maybe your daughter. They will take away food stamps and phones and people will starve and not be able to call for help and probably die. Also they will repeal health care and millions wll go bankrupt or die because they can't get care. They will eliminate teachers, police and firemen and your kids will be stupid and may die from being not being able to get a job cause no one taught them and they are now stupid and they can't get food stamps or social security because they are gone and may die, lotsa people will die because there will be no police and houses will burn and someone may die if they are stuck inside. They want dirty air and water,so you will get sick and die if you haven't yet. They are going to give the rich $5 Trillion dollars and make you pay for it by raising your taxes. The rich will become richer on our backs and when you die your family wont be able to afford to buy you a casket and bury you. And if you vote for Romney you are a racist.

Be smart, not dumb, vote Obama 2012

Trying to confiscate law abiding citizen's firearms would not only be a criminal offense, but an act of war upon the people of this country.
It would be met with severe violence and ultimately fail.
Any President who attempts to "clean house" as you put it will be eliminated.
We're already at war, yer just too stupid to notice it.

I find it interesting that the Dems would use Clinton to defend Obama's honor, you remember the president that was impeached for perjury.
