You hypocrites just love the free market and capitalism until it affects you.
Hey moron,

Didn't you get the memo? Obama is in bed with those evil corporations. It's no longer hip to use your rhetoric. Besides, Obama has been in office for four years so what is your excuse for big oil now?

Did you notice how Obama would not answer the question about the decline of offshore and onshore drilling permits? They are down 60% under Obama. Did you notice how Obama had no plan to lower gasoline prices - this is the new norm under Democrats.

I like your name - it fits you well.

We have a graduated income tax. We all pay from the same chart. I already have some of my income taxed at a higher rate than most people.
I don't constantly whine about it like you.
You are the typical right whiner, My God we can't tax the wealthy more but we need to tax the poor & lower middle class more.
But hey. lets dump the IRS because we all know everyone will just send in the correct tax money. No one would ever cheat.

Obama challenged the math of Romney's tax plan. Romney fired back: "When we're talking about math that doesn't add up, how about $4 trillion of deficits over the last four years,$5 trillion?" We recently checked a related ad from American Crossroads that claimed Obama’s "spending drove us $5 trillion deeper in debt." Not all of the $5 trillion can be attributed to Obama's spending. More than half can be attributed to his tax cuts and the policies of President George W. Bush. We rated the ad's claim Half True.

As the candidates clashed over foreign policy, Romney charged that, "the president's policies throughout the Middle East began with an apology tour." We've repeatedly rated this claim from Romney, including his remarks at the Republican National Convention in Tampa. A review of Obama’s foreign travels and remarks during his early presidency showed no evidence to support such a blunt and disparaging claim.(In later years, we found two formal apologies, but they were not at the start of his presidency and not part of a tour.) While Obama's speeches contained some criticisms of past U.S. actions, he typically combined those passages with praise for the United States and its ideals, and he frequently mentioned how other countries had erred as well. We found not a single, full-throated apology in the bunch. Calling those remarks "an apology tour" is a ridiculous charge. We have once again rated his statement Pants on Fire.

Sabotaging America: The Obama Energy Agenda

...From wind, to solar, to bio-fuels, the president has abandoned the free market to cast his lot in with the most extreme of environmental utopians and we’re all paying the price for his folly.

You are way above your head here! Answer two questions: The economy - when were we (the US) ever at an economic recession like the one George Bush faced in his last year of the presidency? What is the measure by which you can judge the recovery?

We went over this yesterday.

Massachusetts has long time ALREADY had a stable economy.

There's NO SUCH THING as "pie in the sky--good ship lollypop" economies.

How ever-Massachusetts is the ONLY state to have 98-NINETY EIGHT --percent healthcare coverage for EVERYone-NOT just some-thanks to ROMNEY...actually CARING about UNinsured people!(rather than just gitting himself more Oval office ego stroking time!!!!)
