Peppy would want you to be smart and, of course, you know I do too, Homer.
Obama is giving you a lot of bull. Don't be a putz and buy into it.
Be smart, Homer. I know you're smart. Don't prove that Obama is right and you're really stupid just because he's counting on it.
Don't do it, Homer. Please don't do it.
Whaddya say? Homer gonna prove he's smart? It's never too late.
Romney giving 10 times as much bull and you bought all of it, every drop. I worry about how easily duped you are. Homer is smart which is why I see right through Romney, he is the worst of the worst, he will lie right to your face and say whatever to get elected. Wake up already!

<quoted text>Yeah and if Romney does win and everything turns to sh!t as expected then he'll claim he didn't vote for him, like we didn't vote for Bush, twice.
I won't do that, Homer, I promise.

If you vote for Romney and everything turns to you-know-what, I'll say Homer knows everything and carol's a sap every single day for the next four years.

Deal?

Because heaven knows I sure don't want to have to say "I told ya' so, Homer" every single day for the next four years if Obama wins and you're crying in your soup.

But I'll have to, you know.

I was hoping he'd go back into th eKerry conspiracy theory and explain how th eSwift Boaters wrote glowing commendations for Kerry during his service, yet were bought and paid to claim otherwise.

C'mon, explain how Kerry was awarded a Silver Star, thanks to the same guys who were paid to arttack him over 30 years later.

We've come to enjoy your insane conspiracy theories!!

After you get crushed tomorrow, you'll likely slither off. Now's your chance!!

Cut off your nose to spite your face. And then what when Hillary wins in 2016, more sitting on the sidelines watching the rest of the world take over? Try to put your politics aside just once and think and act like an American. We are all in this together.

If only enough folks bought into right wing realistic, you folks wouldn't have to make a big deal about FOX being the only news source American should watch.
Because you see....you're just pointing out the fact that very few Americans pay attention to FOX.
NO, I'm pointing out the fact the lame stream media is in the tank for Obama....in so deep they haven't taken a breath in 4 long years.

Do any of you Foxophobes point out all the lies and discrepancies you think are being perpetrated?(Not talking about YOUR opinion versus the CONSERVATIVE opinion.) Do any of you Foxophobes realize that it IS a conservative-leaning venue but that you see actual news there the other stations won't cover?

Alot of Americans don't realize Obama is raising the income tax rate Jan 1 2013 if you pay 35% now,it will increase to 39.5% if you pay 25% now ,it will increase to 29.5%!!
The average American will owe $2000.00 more for taxes, in 2013
90% of Americans live pay check to pay check ,they will have to get a personnel, one year loan charging 15% interest, Every Year !!!
Take what you made this year and multiply it by 4.5%. That's what you will owe the IRS.
you can find these tax increases for 2013 on the web.

Prices are going up as we speak, Homer. The unemployment rate just ticked up again last Friday. Millions of people don't have jobs. Small businesses have no idea what to expect come January 1, 2013, and still aren't hiring waiting for the other shoe to drop.

We're all paying more everywhere we look and we'll all be suffering when Obamacare kicks in. The other shoe will drop like a loud deafening thud.

Try placing some sane content into your posts.

BTW:

Ed Gillespie, Romney Adviser, Admits Obama's FEMA Doing A Good Job Responding To Sandy

Ed Gillespie, a senior adviser to Mitt Romney's campaign, admitted on Sunday that the Obama administration is effectively responding to Hurricane Sandy, despite a torrent of criticisms from conservatives over the effort and Romney's own desire to change the way the Federal Emergency Management Agency operates.

In the past week, conservatives have begun piling on President Barack Obama for his response to the superstorm, attempting to argue that he has fallen short and should not be out campaigning in the final days before the election.

----------

And Karl Rove says Obama benefitted greatly from his handlling of Sandy.

Of course, his proof of bipartisanship with his new buddy, Chris Christie has helped enormously.

Looks like Rmoney shitcanned Christie, he didn't even offer to visit NJ.

Real Presidential. Ignore disasters, let people fend for themselves. That's Rmoney!!

Fred hasn't been called a racist.

Fred has proven time and again that he's a racist with his own words.

Fred has four more years to hate Obama. Hopefully Fred will not survive a second term for Obama.

the rest is all lies, soemthing that comes easy to Fred.

GObama!!

Romney is determined to turn things around and is not afraid to tackle the major reforms that are long overdue.

What do you think is going to happen in the next decade if we continue on this path, Homer?

Seriously. What?

You see through nothing. Your blinders are still on.

Carol I would never vote for Romney on two points alone: He wants to add 2 trillion to the defense budget and wants to keep all the Bush tax cuts, we do not have the money. Homer is a fiscal conservative that believes we should pay down the debt.
