MBC/Marist polls show Obama leads in 3 key swing states
Three new polls from NBC News/Marist show Obama with leads in Ohio, Virginia, and Florida. The polls show Obama leading by 6 points in Ohio and 4 points in both Virginia and Florida.
This is not good news for Romney who needs to win at least two out of three of these states to get to 270 electoral votes. All three of these states were won by former President George W. Bush in 2000 and 2004, but switched to the Democrat Barack Obama in 2008.
Bush needed all three of these states in 2000 and two out of three in 2004 to pull out close electoral victories. He won with 286 electoral votes in 2004 and 271 electoral votes in 2004. McCain lost all three in 2008, and only received 173 electoral votes.
The polls showed that Obama benefited in all three states from a belief that the economy is improving, and that the worst is behind us. A healthy majority also believe that Obama inherited the tough economic circumstances when he took office in January, 2009.
Romney continues to have problems with the female vote in all three states. Although Romney holds a slim lead among men, he trails Obama by double digits among women.

Bain Capital Looting the Pension Funds (where Hundreds of Millions of Employees Pension money had been saved for Decades) of some of the Companies they bought, so they could not only reap huge rewards from those Pension Plans, they raided, but left the Tax Payers to Pay the Pensions of those workers whose pensions had been looted by those Vulture Capitalist as Texas Governor Rick Perry called Mitt Romney and his Bain Company.
One of the Companies Bain Capital raided paid Mitt Romney and his Bain Capitalist more than $200 MILLION in profit, even as they put 350 people out of Work. That would be more than a Lifetime of income to those 350 people that had created that More than $200 Million for Mitt Romney and his Raiders, took from them in a matter of months

Robme shuts down steel mills and makes millions......
Mitt Romney's Bain Capital invested in "failing, cash-strapped" companies as some sort of noble effort to save them. That's not how arbitrageurs like Romney work.
Bain looked for "cash cows," companies that were profitable and had reasonably good cash flows. The key was they were paying pretty much standard tax rates. By borrowing large sums of money in the company's name (used to pay off Bain's investment), Bain was able to use tax deductions to reduce the company's rate to near zero, without killing the cash flow. Bain and its investors pocketed the 30 percent or so the company would have been paying.
If the massive debt caused the company to go under, as it did in about half the cases, it cost Bain nothing because it had gotten its investment out early. If the company survived, Bain sold it, making additional profits, and paying only a 15 percent capital gains tax on those profits.
Romney's company used taxpayer money to purchase solid, albeit slow-growing, companies, plunged them deeply into debt and then profited on the misery this debt caused for the workers who lost their jobs and benefits when the businesses went broke.
Maybe that's just capitalism. But in my view, it is a greedy, rapacious form of capitalism that places profit above humanity.

The fact that Bain's companies continued to fail after Romney left has nothing to do with the issue. Bain didn't suddenly start doing leveraged buyouts after Romney left. They made the switch from venture capital to leveraged buyouts in the late 80's under Romney's leadership. Venture capitalists lend money to growing companies with the idea of making money as that company grows...they are an important part of out capitalist system Arbitrageurs use the leveraged buyout and tax arbitrage strategy outlined in the letter. They buy solid companies, or somewhat troubled companies with substantial concrete assets, and then through loans and tax gimmickry drain them dry. They make money on dividends and they make money as they break the companies up and sell their assets. No matter whether the company fails or succeeds, they make money.
Normally, when a business goes belly-up, the owners lose their shirts. But, the way Bain gamed the system they were in a win-win situation. The only people who got totally screwed in the process were the employees of the companies. If the business failed, they lost everything and if the business survived, it was only after a series of layoffs and salary and benefit cuts.
There's no question that Romney was a successful businessman...successful in a business model that cares only for profit with no consideration of who suffers as those profits are gained.

Obama flat out lied about his spending, WHAT a shock!
The Liar and chief has ZERO morals!
Yesterday President Obama flat out lied about his spending.
“Since I’ve been president, federal spending has risen at the lowest pace in nearly 60 years,” Obama saidat a campaign event in Denver, Colorado.
“Yes, we’re going to streamline government,” Obama said.“There’s more waste to be cut.”
You people that voted for this clown and still slobber over him have to be insane!
Obama has spent 9.4 billion a day, the Great GWB only spent 6.8!
Obama is a total lying POS and the idiot Left Hand-Out crowd love him!

#23912 May 24, 2012
and from your source
"Obama will have cut spending as a percentage of GDP by 7.5 percent in the four fiscal years that started during his term. That would put him ahead of Reagan in terms of how much he would have cut federal spending measured as percentage of GDP"
your making st ronnie look bad

The Story Behind Romney, Medicare Fraud:
In 1989, Bain took over Damon Corp., then based in Massachusetts, and Romney sat on Damon’s board from 1990 until 1993, when Bain sold the company to Corning Inc.
During Romney’s tenure at Damon, the company allegedly defrauded Medicare for millions of dollars by offering packages of blood tests that resulted in doctors ordering unnecessary lab-work, paid for by Medicare. Damon offered suites of blood tests that, in some cases, were unrelated. Doctors could order Damon’s lab-work in these packages–but Damon did not inform those doctors that it would bill Medicare for the superfluous tests included in the packages.

The rollout troll flat out lied about his spending, WHAT a shock!
The Lying Troll has ZERO morals!
Although there was a big stimulus bill under Obama, federal spending is rising at the slowest pace since Dwight Eisenhower brought the Korean War to an end in the 1950s.
Even hapless Herbert Hoover managed to increase spending more than Obama has.
Here are the facts, according to the official government statistics:
• In the 2009 fiscal year — the last of George W. Bush’s presidency — federal spending rose by 17.9% from $2.98 trillion to $3.52 trillion. Check the official numbers at the Office of Management and Budget.
• In fiscal 2010 — the first budget under Obama — spending fell 1.8% to $3.46 trillion.
• In fiscal 2011, spending rose 4.3% to $3.60 trillion.
• In fiscal 2012, spending is set to rise 0.7% to $3.63 trillion, according to the Congressional Budget Office’s estimate of the budget that was agreed to last August.
• Finally in fiscal 2013 — the final budget of Obama’s term — spending is scheduled to fall 1.3% to $3.58 trillion.
Over Obama’s four budget years, federal spending is on track to rise from $3.52 trillion to $3.58 trillion, an annualized increase of just 0.4%.
There has been no huge increase in spending under the current president, despite what you hear.
Why do people think Obama has spent like a drunken sailor? It’s in part because of a fundamental misunderstanding of the federal budget.
Wingnuts will absolutely TORTURE financial data in order to perpetuate the lie the Obama's spending is out of control.
And the mindless drones, like our Rollout Troll here, will unquestioning swallow it and mindlessly regurgitate it just like the obedient little rightwing drones they are.
Rule of thumb: If the Rollout Troll posts something, the safest bet is to just assume it's bullshit and lies.

The Truth-O-Meter Says:
Mitt Romney is wrong to claim that spending under Obama has "accelerated at a pace without precedent in recent history," because it's actually risen "slower than at any time in nearly 60 years."
Obama has indeed presided over the slowest growth in spending of any president using raw dollars, and it was the second-slowest if you adjust for inflation. The math simultaneously backs up Nutting’s calculations and demolishes Romney’s contention.
#23916 May 25, 2012
Claims vs. Facts
Claim:“Obama started spending like our credit cards have no limit,” says the fictional mom.
Fact: When Obama took office in January 2009, the federal deficit was already running at $1.2 trillion for the fiscal year that had begun nearly four months earlier, according to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office. It has risen since then, and Obama has failed to make good on a promise to cut the deficit by half. But it’s misleading to say Obama “started” spending borrowed money.
In fact, the numbers show spending actually has increased far more slowly under Obama’s budgets that it did under Bush’s, and more slowly than under any president in half a century. An analysis by the Wall Street Journal’s “MarketWatch” website on May 22 shows spending under Obama rising at an average rate of just 1.4 percent per year. Spending under Bush rose 7.3 percent per year during his first term, and 8.1 percent per year in his second term.
“[S]pending is rising at the slowest pace since Dwight Eisenhower brought the Korean War to an end in the 1950s,” wrote MarketWatch’s Rex Nutting. And after adjusting for inflation, Nutting notes, federal spending is actually falling under Obama — the first time that’s happened since the end of the Vietnam war.

Mitt Romney is either an idiot or a Liar.
In response to ads show how Romney destroyed jobs, Romney said this: "The president's experience has been exclusively in politics and as a community organizer."
Either Romney is too stupid to have studied his opponent's history or is a blatant liar.
Obama worked as a lawyer & a Law Professor between Harvard Law& Running for the IL Senate.
