That has not been my experience. I make a very nice salary and get increases I didn't even see coming. If you're good at what you do and honest, you are rewarded.

So? You have $300 million laying around collecting dividends, interest, and cap gains like Romney? Tired of paying a whopping 13% tax bill like Romney? You want zero % tax on your fortunes income?

That is all the "change" Romney cares about!!!

Ceo's do not create jobs!! Demand in the economy does! Trickle down is a Proven failure.

Romney: unpatriotic greedy azzzzzwipe!

You?

He was more agressive last night, but still made many mis-statements, didn't lay any new ideas (at first I thought he was stealing Romney's 5 point plan) and offers nothing but four more years of the same. But, our economy will not last another 24 months. All he keeps repeatng is 'increase taxes on the wealthy.' Well, that's not even a drop in the bucket of what we need to even tread water.
It's like Carter and Bush 1, we need a change.

O'Clusterf**k must be dreading the foreign policy debate on Monday.

Everything this administration has done regarding the Middle East, N. Africa and Asia has turned to shit.

I hope Romney throws the Letterman for Netanyahu trade off The One pulled.

I understand the overall picture. However, having said, your numbers are skewed just like Romney's. You guys live in some kind of alternate reality. For every construction worker hired, you think it takes 10-15 other people to support that 1 person?
No wonder you follow what Romney is saying and the numbers add up for you. For people that are living in reality, they know better.
Probably a cut and paste from a right wing basement dweller, to long for me to read.

Romney claims to have a plan which will put 12 million Americans to work yet he never mentions the home building or related industries.

Who does he think he's kidding, those industries are where 9 million of the unemployment numbers came from and those jobs will not return during one Presidential term, likely not two or in some areas even three.

Nothing Romney has will work because the sumbitch is lying, I'm not sure that Obama has anything worth bragging about either __but__his policies have stopped the nations bleeding and set us on a path to a recovery and he's shown the courage necessary to keep our nation away from unnecessary and costly wars.

Etcha-Sketchy Gone-ney touted his record of hiring women as Massachusetts governor by saying he had “binders full of women” who were qualified to be hired.

“I’ve gotta tell you, we don’t have to collect a bunch of binders to find qualified, talented, terrific young women ready to work and teach in these fields right now!” says Barack Obama, our next President!!

Gallup's week-long tracking poll of likely voters finds that Mitt Romney is leading Barack Obama by 6 percentage points, 51-45.

Gallup will be hearing from a pussed pff David Axelrod

I'm with you. In corporations, you generally reap what you sow. Advanced degrees, lots of hours, few absences, tons of gratis work, and voila! Promotions happen.

Isn't it funny that Obama accuses Romney of stealing peoples retirement, then why is Delphi suing the U.S. government for $450M?

Yep, Obama's U.S. Treasury/Auto Task Force stole $450 million from their retirement accounts but, oh that Mitt Romney is evil!!!

I'm trying, but dealing with those who obfuscate, de rigueur, makes it difficult. List the stereotypes, as pertains to your post, if you can. Ah, perhaps the key....you got nuthin'

Thank you for proving the feckless left is alive, well, and overblown with itself.
