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?

Bah, Romney is out of touch with the middle class much like Alex Smith was out of touch with his receivers, although he was quite friendly with the NY Giant's defensive defensive backs(3 times) and I believe the defense line introduced themselves another 6 times.

BTW, have you admitted that Benghazi was an Obama admin failure yet? Just askin'
How in the fk could it be an Obama failure if it was a CIA failure? Think about that before you respond and consider that two of the deceased and all the survivors of the "attacks" at the Benghazi consulate and nearby annex are now being officially referred to as agents. Agents!

Anyone surprised by this?
"Michelle Obama Broke Agreed Upon Rules
At the second presidential debate on Tuesday night, a camera caught first lady Michelle Obama clapping after moderator Candy Crowley told Republican presidential candidate Gov. Mitt Romney that President Obama called the Benghazi attack an "act of terror" soon after the attack on the U.S. consulate.
Nearly all of the audible applause came from those sitting away from the actual debate, but when FOX News' camera shot moved to a bird's-eye view it became apparent that the only applause from the participating debate audience came from first lady Michelle Obama. Mitt Romney's wife Ann was also sitting with the debate participants.
According to the rules both campaigns agreed to, or the memorandum of understanding (MOA), there is to be no clapping from members of the debate audience."
The agreed rules also forbid one candidate from directly questioning the other.

Mitt Romney broke it within the first 20 minutes.

But hey, he is Mitt Romney & he is above any silly rule.

(Romney hates 47% of citizens.) <---- dck!
There was no ABJECT FAILURE Obama victory last night.

It was nice that he showed up awake and able to function in a debate, unlike the first meeting.

Those were not citizens, those were Obama supporters, fawning over the ABJECT LIBERAL LOSER like teenage boys over Paris Hilton.

Do you always speak so disparagingly of people's wives and children?

It shows such maturity and grace!

Romney has biggest lead to date in new Gallup poll
October 17, 2012 at 2:30 pm
http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/election-...

Mr. Obama has given $1.5 Billion Dollars to the Muslim Brotherhood. America has the highest food-stamp percentage in recorded history, we have the NDAA now. BP oil spill is turning into a tax break for criminal acts with one of the biggest natural disasters on record (NRDA). Obama is giving American jobs to Overseas. We are $16+ trillion dollars in debt now thanks to Obama. Unemployment is hit a record streak of negative proportions. Obama gives bailout for the super-rich., while America is having one of the worst recessions since the great depression. Obama’s administration gave guns to Mexican drug dealers which American’s got killed with. This is not a positive example of hope and change the American people were looking for.
I gave up on Obama’s false hope; removing him from office will do a great good for the American people.
Obama is dangers to America’s freedom, safety, and our cherished constitution. It is only in the best interest to get someone else other than Obama in office. Obama was totally unsuccessful as President of the United States. Does Obama care? Not enough. America needs a real leader in charge for this great country. Obama’s lake of business skills is getting America ripped off. During the Obama administration the Federal Reserve magically lost over a half of trillion dollars. This is a lot of hard working American Tax dollars. We also lost our “triple A” credit rating. We need not to be naïve, of the damage that has occurred under the Obama administration. We cannot afford 4 more years of Barack Obama.
I honestly was pro-Obama at first, but his record speaks volumes. Obama is one of the worsted Presidents we ever had; nothing against the man personally, but please help America, for you and the American people, and help him retire as commander and chief. Obama had his chance, with very, very, very little success. Obama’s administration was a failure to America. America can easily do better.

Thank you and God bless America.

If you don't have a budget, you don't have a plan.... or a plan you want the American people to know about.
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....
You can have a plan without having a budget.

And you are lying again. Why are you such a liar? Obama has submitted a budget every year.

And really, golfing once every two weeks. OMG. Call out the National Guard.

How pathetic.

Did Bush have budgets every year. So you are saying Bush planned to double the national debt, create the worse recession in 80 years, have a near financial meltdown & have a housing collapse.

Wow, that was quite the plan.

And really, when you run wars off budget, are you saying Bush had absolutely no plan in Iraq & Afghanistan?
