The summary conducted by PricewaterhouseCoopers shows the Romneys paid their federal and state income taxes for the past 20 years.

Why else do you think we haven't heard another peep from the left about this issue?
Give it up Carol__your stupidity is overwhelming your vapidity. Try sending the IRS a short summary and let me know how that works for ya.

Romney also refused to address his federal income taxes when he ran for the Senate___Carol, he's a shifty prk, believe it.

An average of 20% does not mean there weren't years when he paid none.

I suspect Romney was a 47 percenter himself which would make him a irresponsible moocher.

He didn't know it wasn't going to be fixed in "his term." He said if he didn't fix it in 3 years, it (his presidency) would be a 1-term proposition. Guess you guys just overlook the crap he's said that doesn't fit your rose-colored glasses view of this loser of a president.

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.

A Vote For Romney Is A Vote For Hatred & bigotry

Texas church sign says 'vote for the Mormon, not the Muslim' In an election 2012 Advertisement sign

A church in Texas has violated federal law by using a sign using highly suspect language to endorse Mitt Romney for president.

"Church in the Valley", located in Leakey Texas, used their outdoor church sign to display a message that said: "Vote for the Mormon, not the Muslim! The capitalist, not the communist!"

By doing this the church, headed by Pastor Ray Miller, is in violation of the what is known as "The Johnson amendment" that prohibits not only churches but any tax-exempt organization from participating in politics on the behalf of any specific campaign.

Because of the church's decision to publicly endorse Mitt Romney for president The Church in the Valley is now at risk of losing their non-profit status.

Only another two weeks if we can just wait it out that long. Then we'll all know.

Are you going to be all right if Romney should win?

I know I'll be extremely disappointed if he doesn't but life will go on and, hopefully, I'll be proven wrong that it's all over but the cryin' for the nation and Obamacare won't sink us once and for all.

What else can I do?

If Romney wins, what else can you do but hope you're wrong too?

Maybe Romney applied as being French or Mexican.
One thing is for sure, Romney was born in the USA, loves America, and believes in God.

Oh, and not afraid to show it too, with the much bigger American flag pin, than what Obama had on.

GO ROMNEY !

Just like it's none of our business what the president's name is, I guess.
You know, it's a really bad situation when the country doesn't even know what the president's name is. They can't know very much else about him if they don't even know his goddam name.

How about getting 5 million dollars donated to some needy people that Obama gets to choose.
How about Obama tell us something about his life.
How about he start by releasing his college records.

You know, maybe because his name isn't Barack Obama. He did come to the United States with a different name, you know.

Romney came out the very next day and said he was dead wrong about that 47% comment - that he is for 100% of Americans.

A president who works for 100% of Americans and has a record of bringing both sides together. Wouldn't that be a nice change?

Rev. Jesse Jackson and 13 other employees of Sensata Technologies in Freeport, Maine were arrested Wednesday evening after stepping onto company property, in an act of civil disobedience Jackson said he hopes will get Bain Capital, the private equity firm founded by Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, to rethink its campaign of “economic terrorism” against American workers.

About 170 workers at the auto parts maker are slated to lose their jobs one day before the election, outsourced to Chinese labor. Workers camped near their soon-to-be former jobsite for weeks in protest, demanding that Romney do or say something to stop his former company from putting them all out. Though Romney founded Bain and still holds millions in the company’s stock, the company claims he left in 1999, although the firm’s Securities and Exchange Commission filings identified him as CEO until 2002.

There is no problem with people showing ID. The problem has been requiring a PHOTO ID.

You don't need a photo ID to vote in IL.

My God, you're an idiot.
