WTF is wrong with you loony left wingers!?
"Despite numerous media outlets attempting to downplay the issue, Twitter exploded last night following the debate with new threats from Obama supporters to assassinate Mitt Romney if he defeats Obama in the presidential race."
The black out media are apparently hiding under their desks in a tailspin over the recent and current events.

If they actually report and investigate any cover ups on the part of this administration or threats of violence towards Romney, they won't be able to cheerlead anymore. They love their pom-poms SOOOO much!

Will the Foreign Policy Debate Sink Romney?
Bill Kristol thinks that Romney’s performance in the last debate on foreign policy could determine whether Romney wins or loses the election:
Foreign policy isn’t Romney’s natural subject. It’s not his comfort zone. And it’s always more difficult for the challenger. Good. Romney will have to rise to the occasion.
This has remained one of Romney’s biggest weaknesses for a few reasons, the most important of which is that he simply hasn’t spent enough time or paid enough attention to these issues to be as well-versed in them as he should be. There are many things that aren’t Romney’s “natural” subjects, but he doesn’t struggle with any other kind of policy as much as he struggles with this one. As a former governor, it is understandable that he prefers talking about domestic policy issues, but favoring this preference has caused him to neglect foreign policy to a remarkable degree for someone who has been running for president since 2006. Until now, most voters likely haven’t noticed the result of this neglect, but they will see it in Monday’s debate.

Hey, all you liberals who think you have the right guy...

As a piece of social legislation designed to improve women’s wages in comparison to men, THE LILLY LEDBETTER ACT IS MORE LIKELY TO RESULT IN FEWER EMPLOYED FEMALES because firms fear potential litigation, adverse publicity from such cases, and the amount of resources they would have to devote to defending themselves against such claims.

We haven't had a budget since Obama took office.

Give us the number for the debt of Mass before and after Romney. You obviously don't have the numbers and don't know what you're talking about. Talk about someone talking through their ass.... You talk, but you don't say anything.

I do recall while Mitt Romney was governor, my brother-in-law had to go to Boston to work construction because there wasn't enough people there to do the work that needed to be done. That just doesn't fit with what you claim.

What's wrong with not raising taxes?
.... well??????

So, what you're saying is, Romney balanced revenue with expenditure, right?
Isn't that the way government should be run?

What does closing a loophole have to do with cutting revenue? You're reaching here. Just babble there.

So, you're saying we don't even have any guidelines for spending and comparing that to revenue, right? Wouldn't you call that disfunctional?
Please tell us why we haven't even had a budget since Obama took office.
Please tell us why Obama submitted only 2 budgets to Congress in the 4 years he was supposed to submit a budget.
Please tell us why the sum total of Obama's only two budget proposals in the four years he's been golfing around the White House got a sum total of ZERO votes in Congress.

And, kindly explain to us how the government will be able to control spending if it is so disfunctional it can't even generate a budget when the president has a super majority in the Senate and a dominant majority in the House.

And you're trying to convince the country we need four more years of that....
Moronic argument, but expected. Massachusetts is required, by their law, to have no deficit in budget at end of fiscal year. Has nothing to do with Romney. Absolutely NOTHING!

Mitt refuses to state publicly that he supports it leaving many to question why.

BTW Carol, I'm pretty sure that they're not referring to corporation presidents, astronauts and such but women who work alongside men performing the same tasks for less pay, women like Lilly Ledbetter.

The Obama Administration cites the statistic that full-time working American women earn 77 cents for every dollar a man earns and claim this is the ‘wage gap’ as justification for the Lilly Ledbetter Act.

However, the statistic does not account for the number of hours per week women and men work on average. To a considerable degree, the ‘gender wage gap’ is more a ‘gender hours gap.’

Men are more likely to work more hours than women.
In 2009, 66.6 percent of American workers working less than 35-hour workweeks were women.

Hello? Is anyone there? Is anyone listening?

Obama is just trying to fool the easily fooled again. It's amazing he can do it so well.

The challenge for Romney is in having to discredit the numerous deceptions, misrepresenations and flat out lies by the liberal machine.

I sure hope he gets an opportunity to pounce on the newest crock of crap - this Lilly Ledbetter Act.

It's so easy to see how people were taken in by snake oil salesmen in the Old West now.
