President Walker turns WI into a red state for President Romney
REPORT: A Disappointing Turnout For The Obama Rally In Madison, Wisconsin.“Meade is on the scene, where he talked to a police officer who said they’d planned for 30,000 but were estimating the crowd at 15,000. And Meade encountered a friend who said he’d heard reports that it would be a nightmare trying to park downtown, but he pulled into a parking garage and was the first car there.”
Twenty-five percent (25%) of likely Wisconsin voters have already voted, and the president leads 56% to 41% among these voters.

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.
I thought James Madison was one of our statesmen in history.

Now I see he is a lying POS dumbass Right whiner.

The rates only go up if your hero Paul Ryan & his hoard of antiAmerican fellow Republicans don't act.

Obama can't do anything on this unless Congress acts. If Paul Ryan & his buddies continue to stick it to the working man, then the rates return by law. A law Republicans voted for.

So really., peddle your pack of lies elsewhere.

Nonsense. 2007 Democrats sabotaged the economy by driving up energy costs and collapsed the financial sector with sub prime loans extorted from bankers. The Kenyan's communist coup made the economy worse.

Democrats are 100% responsible for the economic misery of America.

That backfired too, but they sure as heck tried it for as long as they could.
"They even pulled the race card on ME!"
Former President Bill Clinton 2008
He's neither far left nor radical, but you certainly are a dyed-in-the-wool racist, dumb carol. You're clearly not playing with a full deck, but all fifty-one of yours are race cards and you deal them from the bottom. You might be a little more suspicious of those 'powers that be' that think we need a vampire capitalist Mormon bishop war-mongering draft dodger as POTUS.

Another right whiner wanting not only to place the blame of the recession on Obama but also blame him for the debt run up by Paul Ryan & George Bush.

We had balanced budgets & a surplus on the path to paying down our debt.

But Paul Ryan said nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ooo, and he & his Republicans voted to take us off that path.

On purpose!!!!!

Then the sniveling little weasel Ryan runs around bitching about deficits & debt. Where is his apology to the American people???

If Romney did such a great job as governor of Massachusetts, certainly he has a commanding lead in that state. Anyone seen the polling in MA? How big of a lead t=does their former governor have?

It's the elistists who are the most unaffected. For now anyway.
So why do you support the Party that caters to elitists??

You're very confused. Rmoney is all about the elitists, with his multiple homes and offshore accounts.

Yet you're dumb enough to believe he's just like you, but for a few hundred million in offshore accounts.

Hope you're ready for the Obama landslide!!

Since 1981, National Journal's annual vote ratings have defined where members of Congress stand ideologically. The ratings rank lawmakers on how they vote relative to each other on a conservative-to-liberal scale in both the Senate and the House. The scores are based on the members' votes in three areas: economic issues, social issues, and foreign policy.

Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., was the most liberal senator in 2007, based on National Journal ’s vote ratings. He shifted further to the left last year in the run-up to the presidential primaries, after ranking as the 16th- and 10th-most-liberal during his first two years in the Senate. Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y., also shifted to the left last year, although she has generally been more moderate in the ratings than her Democratic presidential rival.

Now we're buried up to our knees.
C'mon Homer. Where's the smart?
I'm sorry Carol, but the Republican party as it stands today is on the self imploding model. Even Reagan's son says his father would not know this party of today. All this rant about Obama's record when infact the Republicans have blocked EVERY single piece of legislation that comes past its desk. With stupid $hit signing pledges with tea party about no new taxes and the same time block spending cuts. Would any rational business be operated this way and survive, yet this is how the Republicans operate these days. You know Reagan raised taxes 11 times he was in office yet this Republican icon has been painted some mythical figure by the likes of Fox. The point is between Fox news and the Tea party movement the conservatives have evolved into what I call America's Taliban.
Trying to recapture the past yet it has long since passed them by so as a result say their prime mission is to bring down a president even if it brings down the country. You need to have a good hard look yourselves. There are good people still left in the Republican party like Alan Simpson who shows that common sense should prevail unfortunately he is in the minority now.
Just a sample of some of his quotes which should ring true.

Simpson told CNN's Fareed Zakaria that Republicans' rigid opposition to new tax revenues has hampered productivity and diminished the chances of reaching an agreement with Democrats on debt reduction. "You can’t cut spending your way out of this hole," Simpson, who was appointed as co-chair of President Obama's Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform in 2010, said. "You can’t grow your way out of this hole, and you can’t tax your way out of this hole. So put that in your pipe and smoke it, we tell these people. This is madness."

Simpson continued: "If you want to be a purist, go somewhere on a mountaintop and praise the east or something. But if you want to be in politics, you learn to compromise. And you learn to compromise on the issue without compromising yourself. Show me a guy who won’t compromise and I’ll show you a guy with rock for brains."

Only people who hate America shop at WalMart. It's all Chinese crap there!! Didn't Mitt say something about China?? Yet you still buy Chinese crap?? That's as bad as shopping for furniture at the curb.

WalMart is responsible for offshoring more American jobs than all other sources combined!!

And they treat their employees like slaves.

Why do you hate America so much, Carol??

Will you go back to Lorac after Obama wins??

Explaining facts to Retard Fred is akin to teaching your dog to speak Latin.

The tail wags, the eyes are bright, but they have no clue as to what you're talking about.

Factual data reads like this to folks like Fred, Gunner, Dweeb, Nobraina:

"blah blah blah commie blah blah blah Acorn blah blah blah mau mau blah blah blah"
