Less than a week to go before we can start sending packing boxes to the Occupy White House bums!

They will wake up a week from Wednesday and know they are a failure. The charade couldn't last.

And all the liberal nitwits who have been gloating about their lot in life can crawl back under the rock they emerged from four years ago.

We aren't paying their way anymore.

How do propose Romney save those jobs?
Freeport could have done more to keep those jobs there than Romney.
All he had to do was pick up the phone and make one phone to his buddies at Bain and worked it out with his great magic job creating skills

65? Well, that leaves her out for a 2016 run.
She has the money to consider cosmetic surgery to reverse that haggardness she's carrying on her face, lest Billy Boy goes and finds himself another sweet young thang.
Hillary stayed with the cheatin' bastard to advance her political career. Well, her biznezz.
Respect? Debatable.
As one of the hardest working Secretary of State she received little appreciation, and alot of wear and tear to show for it on her face. Pretty thankless job if you ask me.
Ask Condi Rice. Now Condi, I have great respect for.
She's All Class.
And surpasses Hillary in intelligence, integrity and grace, IMO.

It's no surprise that you prefer the Republican style of coverup to the Democratic variety.

But all class?
Puh-leeze.
She's been an enthusiastic kisser of white-boy ass for 40 years.

All Romney promised to do is create 4 million jobs in his first term, that is totally on par with the natural growth rate with population growth. So in otherwords it would happen even if you elected Chairman Mao, a total bs promise as Obama can make the same promise.

What he LIES about is him making any policies that will create one extra job on top of the 4 million. If he cuts taxes and the debt rises then its back to the future with Romney, the USA will actually grow more debt. I don't think that is what the Tea people had in mind.
