Remember before Bush was president? Lets dont go that way again with romney..

Mitt Romney Making Pledges to the very Rich 1 %
Why is Mitt Romney Making Pledges to a Washington Lobbyist?
Romney is Fake as a $3.00 Bill,don't be fooled by his stiffness,he has no idea what the average people has to do to raise a family.or live from day to day.
We’ve previously told you about the 1% Pledge — a pledge run by Washington superlobbyist Grover Norquist that the vast majority of Congressional Republicans have taken. Instead of merely pledging to uphold the oath they take to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States,” these Members of Congress also pledge to never, ever raise taxes on anyone and/or end any of the wasteful tax loopholes and giveaways written into our broken tax code.

While some Republicans have recently come to their senses and publicly, even angrily denounced the 1% Pledge, at least one continues be locked in: Mitt Romney. Earlier this week, the lobbyist author of the 1% Pledge underscored that it would force Romney to oppose the Buffett Rule no matter what:

But Norquist voiced confidence that there’s not a chance the presumptive GOP presidential nominee will back away from the tax pledge, which binds office holders to “oppose any and all efforts” to increase the marginal income tax rate.

“He has basically endorsed the Ryan plan,” Norquist said in reference to the House GOP budget authored by Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), which would lower the top individual tax rate to 25 percent.“He’s signed the Taxpayer Protection Pledge, so he’s put in writing that he would never do this.

“And what House of Representatives would allow him to and what Republican Senate would allow him to? This is not going to be an option,” Norquist added.

Not that we had any doubts about Romney’s ironclad opposition to making the very wealthiest Americans like himself pay their fair share in taxes, but here’s the rundown on what else Mitt Romney’s 1% Pledge means in practice.

Mitt Romney’s 1% Pledge in Action

Mitt Romney has promised a Washington lobbyist that he will never, ever:

make the wealthiest Americans pay their fair share
make huge corporations pay their fair share (or even any taxes at all in some cases)
end the unfair tax loopholes that allow millionaires like himself and the billionaires funding his campaign to pay a lower tax rate than middle class Americans
end the unfair handouts to hedge fund and private equity managers (like Mitt Romney himself)
end tens of billions of dollars in handouts to Big Oil
end unfair tax loopholes that pay companies to ship jobs overseas
end unfair tax loopholes for vacation homes and yachts
end unfair and ridiculous tax loopholes for things like wealthy horse breeders or corporate jets
And of course we know that for every dollar in giveaways to the wealthiest 1 Percent and special interests that Mitt Romney pledges to protect, that’s one more dollar he’ll cut from Social Security, Medicare, and programs that benefit middle class families. In fact, that’s exactly what Romney’s already said he’ll do: slash programs for the middle class in order to give trillions more in tax breaks to the wealthiest Americans.

IN ONE SENTENCE: Instead making pledges to Washington lobbyists to protect every last tax giveaway to the wealthy and corporate special interests, we need leaders who will pledge to uphold the Constitution and do what’s best for the country.

Obama is cleaning up the Mess of George W.Bush,Lets don't go back to thoses days.

Oh' who are you? the grammar police. Read this stupid in 08' the recession had fuel prices upward's of $4 a gallon. Obama's health plan ultimately will lower the cost of health insurance, once everyone is mandated to own it in 14', it will also save us taxpayer's money honoring the Burton hill agreement.Bush not only screwed up foreign policy, flat-out lied, but managed to injure Constitutional rights and, of course, bring down the entire world economy.As far as cabinet member's, What about Bush's buddy Att. general Alberto Gonzales. All of Bush's cabinet member's were nothing but (yes) men. What about Bush's estimation of the cost of the Iraq war, he said 50-60 Billion, WRONG!!! Try 600 billion!What about Bush's totally abandoning the Kyoto protocol, why couldn't he just sign that? And how about his insistence there was a link between Saddam Hussein and Al-Qaeda, there was no proof because there was no link.And I could go on and on about fact's pertaining too "Stupid" Republican bullshit that are fact's and not just rhetoric hatred. Now let me tell you about you STUPID! You're truth of Knowledge is backed by greedy ignorance that one day will be the end of you, if I don't Cock slap you first and leave a whelp the mortician can't hide! BITCH!

Obamacare will screw up worse an already dysfunctional healthcare system. Bush's deficits pale in comparison to Obama's. Gas was $2 or less per gallon when obama was sworn in. Obama kept most of the Patriot Act provisions that were enacted under Bush. The Kyoto protocol is stupid.

Being A Democrat means thinking ahead and not about cutting taxes...as Rich 1% republicans do. or steal money from supporters as sarah palin has done,or sending good paying jobs to india,china,and mexico as mitt romney has done..and cleaning up bush one and reagan budget mess and defecit.

If by "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people -- their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties -- someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal," then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal."

You don't know Obamacare will be a screw up (No one does)Read and understand this lamebrain, the recession of 08' had gas prices above $4 a gallon,(that was under Bush's term)( A stolen election) The price of fuel decreased just around election time when Bush was on his way out. Obama inherited a war brought on by YOU Stupid Republicans, which in turn forced him too deal with a Hugh deficit, he didn't create it.The Patriot Act is a necessary evil that though invades some of our rights too privacy, it help's too detect any terrorist objectives. If the Kyoto protocol is so stupid, than why has 95% of the nation's of the U.N adopted it, Oh that's right, you dumb Republican's don't believe in Global warming as long as it has a price to be meet or restriction's to follow. The price will be Humanity if we don't come to term's that the greenhouse effect is very real.

And you do not know that it will improve it. You see, I concede that the GOP does indulge in some rhetoric. If you think the democrats don't you are naive. You regurgitate the straight democratic line, which makes your comments your opinions, not fact. I would gladly debate you with mutual courtesy, but calling me lamebrain, shows you are incapable of that. So, if you wish to trade insults, lets go for it.
