To all my liberal friends:
Just posting the latest polls. Please don't take it personally.
When Romney was trailing, we conservatives kept our hopes up, tried to remain positive and prepared to brace ourselves for the worst.
It's all any of us can do. Life will go on.
Some of us believe it will go on a little better with Romney...but only time will tell...and there will be another election in four more years.
If we could wait it out four years, you can too.
But none of us know how this election will turn out until November 6.
Now THAT is so true! I've seen a couple of segments on TV on what will happen if there is a TIE! It's looking like that could be a distinct possibility too.

Hey, Republicans!
Did you notice on the last debate how Obama's American Flag Pin was very small compared to the one that Romney was wearing? Did you notice that the Republicans held up their Romney signs along with their American flags, and they were waving them? To me, that shows love for their country,and true American spirit. All the Demonbrats had was little Obama sign held up that should have said Obama Moving Backwards, Not Forward.
And don't you know Obama was wearing even that small pin under protest. "All that fuss over a damn flag!" Michelle Obama.

Mitt released partial returns and skipped 09 which was the amnesty year. The legitimate summary was a short statement provided by one of Bain Capital's accounting firms.

Your Trump observation highlights your vapidity.
She was going to vote for him, remember? Then it was Gingrich, then it was Herman Cain, then it was Santorum, then it was Mitt.

Ironic that the only normal one, John Huntsman, they didn't like.

Romney DID release his tax returns and also a legitimate summary of his tax returns from the past 10 years that wasn't even challenged by anyone on the left - which should tell you something.
Hard to believe anyone would give up $5 million dollars to charity just to keep their past under lock and key.
Show me where in that one year open-to-amendment return and "summary" )are you really out of your mind? it shows his 15-115 million bailout bucks from the Delphi extortion? It went into the Bermuda account he'd put in Ann's name so he could lie in a few other campaigns, but I'm sure they file jointly. Go ahead, dumb carol, either cough up that little bit of info or just stfu.

My fellow Americans I proudly present you with the Absolute facts of our POTUS!!
10 Worst lies of Obama.....

Attempting to select THE ten worst lies told by a pathological liar like Barack Obama is a difficult task. There are so many lies that it is hard to know where to start – a good case can be made for so many of his lies as top ten material. For this reason, there is no claim here to a TOP ten of his lies: ten of his most egregious ones.

During his last State of the Union speech, Barack Obama claimed “American oil production is the highest that it’s been in eight years.”

In fact, the Congressional Research Service reports that 96% of the increase comes from oil fields out of Obama’s control. By contrast, the production from federally-owned oil fields he does control has dropped by 275,000 barrels a day. It is worth noting that privately-owned fields have increased by 395,000 barrels a day.

Obama has told the world there has never been a better friend of Israel in the White House.

On Sunday, an Israeli newspaper reported that senior Obama Administration officials have told Tehran that Barack Obama does not intend to join Israel in any attack on Iran’s nuclear installations. In May 2011, Obama asked G8 member nations to fund the Arab Spring counties who are clearly on their way to planning an all-out attack on Israel.

In May 2011, Obama said the fence between America and Mexico was “basically complete”; yet the Department of Homeland Security admits just 36.3 miles or 5% of the border is fenced.

Obama lied and said abortions would not be publicly funded under Obamacare.

Despite Obama’s empty lies about no public funding for abortions, a March 2012 edict from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) unequivocally ruled Obamacare will use our tax dollars to fund abortion.

In April 2009, Obama claimed he “saved or created over 150,000 jobs.”

In an odd burst of veracity, his friends at the AP called him on this lie, pointing out that at that point since Obama came to office, the United States lost more than 1.2 million jobs as per his own Bureau of Labor Statistics. The report continued by pointing out that any jobs “saved or created” by Obama’s stimulus bill were “dwarfed by the number of recent job losses.”

He claimed that by the end of his first term, he would cut the deficit in half.

The truth is that he has given us more new debt than all previous presidents combined.

Remember Obama telling us there would be no earmarks in his 2009 stimulus package? He lied. The bill had over 9,000 earmarks in it, and of course, it failed to deliver even a small improvement for our economy.

Obama told us that without his 2009 stimulus package unemployment would grow to 8.5%. We got the stimulus, and it gave us 44 straight months of unemployment at or above 8%.

Obama lied about his position on Gay “marriage” multiple times, moving from “I am not one to support gay marriage” to his “evolution” in May. That was all a convenient pack of lies.

I'll bet even that Obama supporter father was sorry he brought up the subject with our low-class POS president. How incredibly tacky and disrespectful Obama is.

Romney said he would gladly sign a bill to make all abortions illegal.

Republicans keep passing legislation to limit the availability of abortions, Romney will sign these.

If he will gladly sign these bills, he would appoint a SC judge that would also.

Mitt Romney implicated in perjury and stock fraud, made millions in process OCTOBER 24, 2012BY: LOU COLAGIOVANNI
.
Mitt Romney has been implicated in a complex case involving perjury, stock manipulation, and possibly consumer fraud.
Mitt Romney lied in the divorce proceedings of his wealthy friend, Tom Stemberg, founder of Staples, according to a story by radaronline.com . At least that is what Stemberg's former wife, Maureen, says. She is a MS patient who says her husband was so vindictive he even cut off her health insurance. Unfortunately the records for this case have been sealed, and participants are unable to discuss them. Other forces are in motion to lift the gag order.
It is a matter of public record that Mitt Romney went on the stand claiming that Staples as a business was "overvalued." He also specifically said:
I didn't place a great deal of credibility in the forecast of the company's future.
Because of Romney's testimony the court valued the corporation at a paltry percentage of its actual worth, and Maureen Stemberg was granted a tiny settlement.
Meanwhile, weeks after the divorce was finalized, Mitt Romney and his buddy Tom Stemberg sold their shares of Staples to Goldman Sachs and made millions in the process.
This is a case in a long line of cases that show a side of Mitt Romney's business ethics that he does not want the American people to know about.
Shows his hatred of women. One would think that since his wife too has MS, that he would be kind and sympathetic. But no, he probably loved punishing and ruining this woman to make a buck.
