That's because liberal policies rarely, if ever, work.
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.

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!
If you don't have budget, you don't know how much you can spend. If you don't have budget you can't make plans.

Why Obama don't have budget for the last 3 yrs? Obama can't than spend and print money and that's why deficit is so huge.

Romney is businessman and know how to manage money and create jobs. Also he was Governor. What experience Obama had when he took office?
You don't get a lawyer for a president! You only get talking points and a manipulator ...

The best question at the second presidential debate came from Michael Jones, an African-American who said: "Mr. President, I voted for you in 2008. What have you done or accomplished to earn my vote in 2012? I'm not that optimistic, as I was in 2008. Most things I need for everyday living are very expensive."

To which Obama said: "Are you my half-brother?"

Actually, all Obama could say was that he had ended the war in Iraq (while pointlessly escalating the war in Afghanistan) and that Osama bin Laden is dead (and so is our ambassador). Both of which must be a great comfort to Mr. Jones as he tries to pay his bills every month.

Jones was right: Since Obama has been president, everything you own -- your home, pension, savings accounts, weekly paychecks -- are all worth less.

Meanwhile, everything you need -- gas, food, and anything else that requires fuel to be transported to you -- costs more.

Obama can't talk his way out of his record. As Romney said in response to the president's allegation that he is gung-ho about drilling for oil to lower fuel prices: "But that's not what you've done in the last four years. That's the problem."

Obama also suddenly announced: "I'm all for pipelines. I'm all for oil production." But he vetoed the Keystone pipeline.

He explained that the price of gasoline was $1.80 when he took office because the economy was in the toilet. Apparently, prices have spiked to more than $4 a gallon because all Americans are back at work now and making big bucks!

Obama said the "most important thing we can do is to make sure that we are creating jobs in this country."

So now he's going to create jobs? Because, nearly four years into his presidency, 23 million Americans are out of work and more than half of recent college graduates can't find a job.

He claimed to believe that we should reward "self-reliance," "individual initiative" and "risk-takers." And yet, a few months ago, he ridiculed these self-reliant risk-takers for thinking they were "just so smart," sneering "if you've got a business, you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen."

Obama said we have to be "serious about reducing the deficit," calling it "a moral obligation to the next generation." But he's increased the deficit by $5 trillion -- more in four years than President Bush did in eight.

He also said he supported cutting corporate taxes. But only in odd-numbered years that don't start with "2."

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 Lilly Ledbetter Act was just a bunch of crock. And you fell for it too. Shame on you.

The media will lie and say Obama won the debate -- he has stopped the bleeding, he's drawing huge crowds, the momentum is back! But as Romney said in response to many of Obama's promises Tuesday night, "I don't think the American people believe that."

The trend is set and Obama's voters are moving away from him in droves. People can see that Obama has to go to college campuses, the David Letterman show and "The Daily Show" to get a friendly audience these days. Even Lindsay Lohan is for Romney.

The media's campaigning for Obama isn't fooling Americans; it's just making Obama's obtuseness worse. If you're behind at halftime, you don't go to the cheerleading squad to ask what you're doing wrong.

Absolutely nothing! You're perfect! Don't change anything!

But we're behind by 7 points ...

You're great! You're the best team ever!

With Obama unable to compete in a fair fight, debate moderator Candy Crowley had to become Obama's wingman, injecting herself into the debate by declaring Obama the winner on the question of whether he had called the Benghazi attack an act of terror the day after the attack. Only after the debate, when everyone had gone home, did Crowley admit that Romney was right on Libya.

(If Obama called the Benghazi attack an "act of terror" in his Rose Garden speech, then he also said the victims of that attack were buried in the "hallowed grounds of Arlington Cemetery" and that he had visited them at Walter Reed -- other comments in that speech not specifically referring to the Benghazi attack.)

Crowley stopped Romney from talking about Fast and Furious on the grounds that it had nothing to do with guns. She didn't take a single question on Obamacare -- the universally loathed monstrosity that fueled the 2010 Republican landslide and continues to be a thorn in America's side.

In the media room, journalists cheered Obama's cheap shot about Romney being rich, according to The Washington Times. Say, who did the Democrats run for president right before Obama? That would be the richest man in the U.S. Senate, John Kerry. But liberals believe Kerry acquired his fortune more honestly than by building businesses and creating jobs. He married a rich woman.

For all the media cheerleading, millions of Americans still know they're out of work. They know, as Michael Jones noted, that everything is more expensive, including even-handed moderators.

Moose Crowley admitted she was wrong.

Another instance of a corrupt liberal media person damaging our country, going out of bounds to help a Socialist Obama, without any repercussions.

Liberals have no ethical values.

Republicans should refuse to have anything to do with these dirtbags.

The debates should be moderated by someone else besides corrupt liberal media goons.

Ah, The Horse and Wagon ... When one is a rough rider, others want to hitch their wagon which comes with all of their baggage.
And then, they weigh your ridin' down. Slow your Game down.

And as The James Gang stated being an Outlaw is not so different than being a Businessman.
Thus, Assests vs Liabilities.

Baggage is always a liability which no Businessman can bear as a burden.

Better to be a Lone Rider. An Outlaw ...

Say what'cha gotta say, mean what you say, and Gallop Off into The Sunset ... Adios Mutha' F*ckas' <--------- the baggagers.

It's going to go where I take it. And where you take it.

You are obviously very passionate about this subject. Too bad you aren't as passionate in getting to the truth of Romney's 'non' plan for balancing our economic situation.

I do agree that this is nothing but a tactic to try and gain women's vote. I think you're just upset that one side actually did make a stand.
