Let me give you a flash goon. I am not brainwashed. I voted for Obama in 2008. I am black. I don't have a lot of money. Obama's guys are encouraging me to get food stamps and all the free "Obamaphones" I want. He is trying to buy my vote, and his mantra of redistributing the wealth sounds pretty good. If you are an IDIOT. Socialism does not work. Obama was born, bred, and mentored by socialists. Obviously you have not seen the movie or read anything but liberal trash, or if you have, are unable to get your brain to wrap around the realities we are living with. Obama is a disaster for America. I feel so sorry for you you blind fool. I feel truly sorry for all you useful fools who are being manipulated by this man. If you vote him back in, the only "dealing with it" will be what you have to do as Obama sends your money to me. And I will take all of it and thumb my nose at you. Better get back to work fool. I need some more lobster.
and if Mitt gets it he'll send YOUR money to the rich LoL

The Republicans like to talk about the amount of debt the current president has added. Looking at the numbers below. it's obvious why they focus on dollars and not on percentage of growth.

Reagan 188% increase in debt
H W Bush 56% increase in debt
Clinton 52% increase in debt
Bush II 85% increase in debt
Obama 42% increase in debt

We see the same pattern when looking at domestic growth when you comparing the two major parties. To deny that historically the country has done better under Democrats is wishful thinking on the part of Republicans.

Yes but it was eight years of Bush that got us into this,when he started his term the country was in the black with a surplus, his spending on two unfluted wars and spending plus outsoureing jobs did this. Plus Mitt Romney created the model of outsourcing jobs,he created Bain Capital. which he still financially benefits from even tho he no longer runs it. Ask yourself why he does'nt want to show his tax returns

[QUOTE who="5 Trillion $"]<quoted text>
Rather than berating you about your "in the black" Clinton comment, may I kindly suggest that you look up the facts on Uncle Google? Please.
I agree that Bush was a fiscal disaster. That's why I and millions of others voted for Obama, never dreaming of the hole he would dig with almost nothing to show for it. I support Romney because he knows how to successfully run huge businesses. The US is not a business, but the methods needed to manage it are largely the same. I blame Obama for failing to surround himself with competent people since he himself has neither the experience nor competence to manage our economy.

ask yourself, what importance is Romneys tax returns . He has released enough. This election is about the economy and debt! Let's see Obama's college transcripts and with the way he racks up debt, let's see what his credit rating was before he became Presodent! I'll bet it was about 550!

OK, I asked myself. And yes, they aren't important in them self. However the fact that Romney refuses to release them makes me wonder, is he hiding something? If he isn't, then why does he refuse to show them? He could clean this up in no time. If this stubborn refusal is an indication of his temperament, I question his ability to successfully run this country. The issue of the presidents transcripts is nothing more than a red herring meant to distract from Romney's refusal to come clean on his tax records, they are separate issues. Historically, at least before Romney, all modern day candidates have released multiple years worth of tax returns. College transcripts along with other personal documents have not played a role in presidential politics. Considering that the president and his wife were well off financially before he ran would probably mean he had a decent credit rating. As if that has anything to do with the subject.

wait, Michelle gave the impression that they were struggling all the way up until he was a U.S. Senator, before that shady land deal with his house, involving that Convict Tony Rezko! I want to see his college Transcripts and credit rating! It would explain reckless spending! What's he hiding? What's he afraid of?

Very clever. Let's talk about the base they started with. You can make numbers prove any story. Let's also look at the state of the econoomy under these leaders:

Reagan Bad to Good
Bush I Good to Fair
Clinton Fair to Good
Bush II Good to Bad
Obama Bad to Bad
Obama term 2 Bad to God help us

However the fact that Obama refuses to release his school records and the source of his funding when he was in school, as well as under what nationality did he travel in the 80's, and with the fact that it took years of pressure for him to release his full form birth certificate makes me wonder, is he hiding something? If he isn't, then why does he refuse to show them? He could clean this up in no time. If this stubborn refusal is an indication of his temperament, I question his ability to successfully run this country, especially since in the past four years, he has proven he cannot.

So let me get this straight:

You would like us to be influenced by a web site that labels itself a "Black bourgeoisie perspective on US politics" that also touts a link to "How to reach millions of liberals daily". Hell, I don't need to read that web site, all I need to do is watch CNN or MSNBC.

Get back to us with a balanced view of what has and has not been accomplished by the arrogant amateur and then lets talk again.

By the way, how is that plan to close Guantanamo and try the terrorists in New York City thing going? Would love to spend more time with you on this but I have to get back to work to afford the $4.54 per gallon gas I have to buy because the great one has limited oil production and mortgaged our economy and our economic future to the Chinese.

... You can make numbers prove any story.

Yes you can, and that's why the right never talks about what percent Obama has added to the debt. It wouldn't make a point if they acknowledged the growth has been less under Obama than the last several administrations, now would it? Again, the numbers show that he's not the big spender he gets portrayed as. Government growth under Obama has been slower than it's been since the Eisenhower years and Americans are paying the lowest taxes since the '50s. You need to stick to discussing the high unemployment numbers, that's the only place you and your ilk have a point.

I find it interesting how many so called, self described independents always say they are offended by the right. Yet, the 4 years of this idiot presidents failed policies don't bother them one bit. Go ahead, say you are an independent, you are lying! At least have the balls to admit what you are. Like hiding behind the disguise of being an independent gives you the moral authority or something. I guarantee that you are a registered Democrat!

So it has come full circle. Mitt apologizes to Muslims just like Obama.
Mitt the Twitt Romney wrote:
<quoted text>“You know, I think it’s dispiriting sometimes to see some of the awful things people say,” Romney said.“And the idea of using something that some people consider sacred and then parading that out a negative way is simply inappropriate and wrong. And I wish people wouldn’t do it.”

That's not an apology IDIOT. It's a statement of belief and not an official communication from the US government. Get a grip Olive, your nonobjective viewpoint is showing. Again.

Wow, what persuasive and uplifting language you use. You must be winning hundreds over to the Obama cause. NOT.

The Bears performance can be corrected. Obama's cannot.
