... and the bankruptcies will continue as Democrat cronies steal our money then declare bankruptcy after they pocket it:

Part Four of DOE “Junk” Loans and Cronyism, exposing the 90 percent that have "meaningful" ties to President Obama and other high-ranking Democrats –– or both. As previously pointed out, there were 460 applications submitted, and only 7 percent were winners. It turns out that 21 firms represent the 26 projects (the 7%) that were funded by the DOE's Loan Guarantee Program, of which 23 were "junk" rated.

Of course if you ask the DOE, they were all based on "merit."

Beacon Power Corporation is on that DOE “junk bond" portfolio with one of the worst ratings –– CCC+ conducted by S&P in April 2010 that incorporated their anticipated $43 million loan guarantee.

I disagree. If I actually care about the country and we the people I can't vote for Obama or Romney. All of you know that. Why does the people of this country depend on politics and politicians when they are the ones that should depend on us. This country is going to keep going down hill until we the people do something other than just vote for the lesser of two evils.

Deductions for Dressage, and Other Romney Tales

I assumed, a month or two ago, that media and political pressure would compel Romney to release some tax returns. Apparently I was wrong. Here, anyway, the issue is mentioned again in an extremely powerful Obama (actually anti-Romney) endorsement by former ambassador Dan Simpson in the Pittsburgh Post Gazette. Among his many telling points are this:

It is important to remember, on the eve of the elections, that Mr. Romney still has provided only a limited, edited report of his recent taxes. The information he has yielded is far short of what I had to provide federal authorities in 1989 and 1995 to win Senate confirmation of my appointments to be U.S. ambassador to the Central African Republic and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

He also notes the large deduction Romney took for Ann Romney’s dressage horse. And, of course, his neocon advisers.

Honesty and Trust HAVE to be the #1 demand by us (the people) of our government and CANNOT ever be compromised. We go into socialism if not.(We're heading there now..Socialized medicine to start..Pay if u don't play).
Please keep in mind on vote day; if u do choose to vote for Obama, he WILL be impeached...Biden will then be our president. Oh, scrap that; he will be busted too.. Watch Fox national news. ABC, NBC, CBS, nor CNN will tell what's REALLY happening.
Elect another Republican President so he can declare Ansar al-Sharia irrelevant & invade another oil rich country. Just like Bush, Bin Laden & Iraq.

If Romney is elected, this guy is perfectly safe because Mitt Romney said its not worth going after just one man &Romney won't go into another country to get him.

With Obama, you know that guy always has an eye on the sky.

You've got that right. Come January we won't have to guess anymore. This despite the fact that we pretty much guess at everything all the time. "Well, it's winter, summer is coming I guess...

Stick with bommie and you can stay on goverment aid, until the well runs dry, you know if you have as many people on goverment aid as there is working people the well will go dry, what then? It will mean sugar daddy don't have any more sugar to give. We got to vote get Romney in office, he knows how to create jobs and thats what we got to have or this country is gone, we sure can't continue on the path we are on.

It's that time of year, my last column before the elections on Tuesday. I have tried hard to keep an open mind throughout the campaign, balancing evolving opinions, the fact that I consistently vote a split ticket and the fact that both my father and mother were lifelong Republicans. They would probably roll over in their graves up on Rose Hill if they were to see this column.

My decision to vote for the re-election of Barack Obama has five poles.

The first is the position stated two years ago by Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky. that "the single most important thing we want to achieve" is to make Mr. Obama a one-term president. Mr. McConnell did not say he would work to pass legislation in the best interests of the American people. He said he would work most of all to get rid of Mr. Obama.

Yet Mitt Romney, the Republican Party's presidential nominee, even when he is trying to sound reasonable and bipartisan, has never said Mr. McConnell should step down as the GOP leader in the Senate. That is a reason not only to vote against Mr. Romney, but also to vote against Republican Senate and House candidates.

Volumes of CHEERING and APPLAUSE in Roanoke!!!!
His plan is to gut the public education system, redistribute taxpayer dollars to corporations and the military, ship more jobs to Malaysia, frack for natural gas until the entire water supply is flammable, and outlaw abortion.

His experience lies in sucking the blood out of American companies, and selling off their bones. His VP's experience is as a life-long government employee, and the ins and outs of wrangling government subsidies / contracts for the Ryan family's construction business.

Cheer and applaud if you like and hope to enjoy serfdom.

I'm thinking, especially in Nevada, those early "votes" will also be cast in California.
Looks like the Democrats just couldn't find enough people interested in early voting in Ohio.
But, woah! Look at what happened when the Republicans voted early.

Romney/Ryan takes Ohio.
... and Virginia, and Florida, and Wisconsin,... and Pennsylvania.

Obama is burned toast.
The only things I wonder about is what excuse he'll make for missing Romney's inauguration. There aren't any hostages being released, like Carter used.
This will be too much of a blow to his ego. He's going to get slaughtered in this election. He won't be able to face that.

First you support policies that bring about the worse recession & then you call people names when they lose their jobs & homes. Yep, the Republican way.
