I guess Romney's comments on the 47% is a false claim. I guess Romney's support for Atkin and Mourdock are also false claims. We also can add Romney turning his back on 170 workers pleas who begged him to save their jobs is another false claim. Romney killing jobs Bain is another false claim. And Romney hiding his taxes is another false claim? Right.
Obama's auto bailout ws great for the unions but he threw 20,000 Delphi workers under the bus.

Romney's Bain is success story ,Obama's Solyndra is a failure story.

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
"creating" jobs that have no function and are not economically viable is exactly the problem with the Obama comic book economics....

Mitch McConnell and John Boehner’s strategy worked

...Obama ran for president promising to break the gridlock and overcome the partisanship that paralyzes Washington. But it wasn’t up to him. The minority won’t cooperate with the majority unless they see it’s in their interests. And the Republican minority didn’t see it that way.

“The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president,” Mitch McConnell said.“The purpose of the minority is to become the majority,” said Rep. Pete Sessions, head of the National Republican Campaign Committee.

These endorsements are proving Republicans right. As they show, the Republican strategy to deny the president any cooperation and make his Washington a depressing and dysfunctional place has done Obama enormous political damage. In that way, the endorsements get the situation backwards.

While it’s true that President Romney could expect more cooperation from congressional Republicans, in the long term, a vote against Obama on these grounds is a vote for more of this kind of gridlock. Politicians do what wins them elections. If this strategy wins Republicans the election, they’ll employ it next time they face a Democratic president, too, and congressional Democrats will use it against the next Republicans. Rewarding the minority for doing everything in their power to make the majority fail sets up disastrous incentives for the political system.

There are good reasons to endorse Mitt Romney for president. But if you want the political system to work more smoothly, endorsing McConnell and Boehner’s strategy over the last four years is folly.

To be fair, it’s very unlikely Romney would defund FEMA as president. He was simply doing what he often does—pandering to a particular audience.

Well, yesterday I asked everyone ti imagine Romney saying he was compassionate and then to try imagining him actually being compassionate.

Update:

Today we wound out. In Dayton, just north of Cincinnati, in the important swing State of Ohio where Mitt is behind Obama, he relabeled a campaign rally as a non-political relief event and then proceeded to use it as a political rally. He had McCain gave an anti-Obama speech, he passed out campaign t-shirts and he played his video campaign ad. He also used it as a photo op by collecting and personally carrying canned foods to ship to New Jersey (he seemed unsure of the destination), even though the Red Cross said it would complicate their mission and what they really need is money, not stuff.

This is basically a replay of Ryan’s unwelcome photo op at a soup kitchen in Youngstown Ohio a few weeks ago.

Mitt was repeatedly asked if he would privatize FEMA or delicate it to state level process, as he had asserted during his campaign, a reasonable question in view of the “relief” mission of his event and after Christy praising Obama for his effort to expedite FEMA in New Jersey. Mitt responded by totally ignoring the question, while smiling and posing as though he were deaf. Shame!

American Red Cross wants money and blood; they don't want a truck that will have to be off-loaded (Romney isn't going along to help get the two boxes he put on back off, is he?). Where will they store what the crap safely in an area that is under water (in buildings that no longer exist).

Military didn't ask for trillions of dollars; Red Cross asking for some dollars. Not much of a photo-op, Mittens.

Obama is a four year failure and he wants you to vote for him so he can carry on his policy of trickle down poverty.Do Democrats get a discount for lobotomies under Obamacare?

That's ridiculous. He had a change of heart when it comes to abortion. That says a lot about him in the eyes of a lot of people. He always supported gays having legal and civil rights. Just like most people.
