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?

Critical? Really.
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 !

Uh-huh. Reputation? Presumably this is analogous to Big Bird worrying about his underwear?

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.

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.
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.

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.
Well does sharpton have a church does jessie jackson they all do it BLACK preachers were telling members to forget their personal beliefs and morals vote obama your life depends on it JUST LIKE THE KKK THEY bow down to,with the SAMBO style politics they employee example the SAMBOS calling HERMAN CAINE UNCLE TOM WITH THE YEOMANS CALLING A BLACK MAN UNCLE TOM AND THE VILE LANGUAGE USED ON STACY DASH ALL FOR DEMOCRATS SAMBOS CAN TREAT BLACK PEOPLE ANY WAY THEY CHOOSE

You remember us, we're the kids in school who had all the fun while you lugged your books home to study for science. While we were at Woodstock you were out winning the Vietnam War... wait.. you lost that one too didn't you? So, um, what have you done right? You're now at the end of your lives and ready to par-tee? Boy, with this sort of logic to hand it's no wonder you expect Jesus to come back to life and save you in the spaceship behind the big comet.

What led to Romney's hatred for the 47%? Where does it come from? I think it comes from a very specific coupling of shame about his family story, a crippled and stunted personality, lifelong immaturity, a dark mean streak you mark down to chance and brain chemistry, and a sense of unbridled entitlement only the most wealthy Americans can acquire.
It makes for an extremely toxic mix of self-loathing and vicious hatred for the country he would lead. But wherever it comes from, there's one place it must never go, and that's the White House.
He was speaking in general terms - 47% of Americans would most likely not vote for him.

Only a fraction of that 47% actually manipulate the system but the rest are, in fact, victims of Obama's policies.

And not necessarily by choice.
