Pick up a recent copy of RS or read it on the web.

There are a couple of good articles. One tells of how through the 'Freedom of Information Act' reporters from RS found out how Romney almost bankrupted Bain and leveraged a bailout from Uncle Sam.

I would rely on topic but having read some of your other posts (see "Southern whites…") I just can't take you seriously.

What I can't understand is why any of that even matters in regards to him being the president. I don't care how much money he has. He obviously knew how to help make himself money, so why wouldn't he be able to make the United States more prosperous? I mean... I think that's the main thing people need to worry about in this election. The American dream isn't even easiest to achieve in America any more. So if a guy who has foreign bank accounts has to be the guy to reestablish the American dream... Why wouldn't you let him?

It's not about how much money he has nor even where he keeps it for that matter. It's about how he got it and how he has treated folks, especially working class folks, throughout his career, and how he has manipulated the truth. Have you read the articles?

"GREED AND DEBT"does say a lot about Romney,but what confuses me about Romney ,we all know he paid his taxes because he said he did.Then what is he hiding from the american people in his tax returns it must really be bad to take a chance on losing a chance to be president of the united states.Could it be when he left bain capital or it just might be who he has been giving charity money to.Without seeing his tax returns we will never know ,he could have been BIN Laden's banker for all we know or supporting terroist's groups around the world.Don't tell me you can't screw up when you vote ,I voted for "THE JUDGE".

I actually did read the whole greed and debt article. And I thought to myself, "Wonder if Rolling Stone has any articles such as these about Obama's foggy past, or his repeated companionship of criminals and shady characters?" and it occurred to me that I didn't need to read the other ones. At least he didn't run Bain into the ground like Obama has with the debt and welfare and obamacare. A change will be good. It has to be. How can it not?

The Country was well nose diving in a spirel spin and no one could stop what was already happening under the Bush Agenda. Two needless wars and trillions of dollars later and over 6,000 American lives later. He bailed out Banks and Wall Street just before he left office. He gave the rich tax breaks also before he left office. Blame Obama all you want too but what you say is not even close to the truth. You read with bias eyes and think with a bias mine even before you read an article. Obama didn't doo welfare and the "Obamacare" is not "Obamacare" which the Republicans love to call it. It is truthfully "The Affordable Health Care Law" that was passe legally under United States Laws. You petty bunch of Republicans don't like the law so you all agree to destroy Obama at all cost. Well freind, the Country has greatly suffered because of Congress refusing to help Obama doo anything to help the Nation. They will pay severely in Nobvember for all their lies and distrotions they have so greaciously blasted Americans with now for almost four year. Tea Party will soon be History because it was founded by none other that the giant oil tycoons that are robbing us today at the pump knows as the Koch Brothers. These two guys are sooo greedy they even sued each other because one inherrited more than the other one. All I tell you can be researched if you take your blinders off and play an American for one day. It's not too painful to admit the truth. Stop the lies and distrotions and lend a helping hand to Obama. He is now leading in all the polls....so vote for a winner....ObamA!

Whe you take into account the authors of the articles, their political affiliation and the agenda behind the article; it is not hard at all the see through the propaganda and misinformation in all of the various articles written by any opposite party favor. The media has become a greedy whore that caters to only what sells and nothing is reported in its entire truth anymore. King, your short and to the point comment make a lot of sense.

Romney has turned over all of the tax records he is required to by law. Period. I can remember Obama taking months to come up with his birth certificate when the nonsense about his not being American come out. There comes a time in anyone's life when you have to say "enough already". These procrastinations by both men were them saying just that.

Sure the Bush Administration left a lot of baggage for the Obama Administration, we all know that. HOwever; Obama created a lot of baggage himself as well and it only added to the pre-existing sorrows. The queston that I ask myself this election year is what accomplishments has he made since he took the office? What has been productively done by the president that I helped vote into office? In reality the list is shorter in accomplishments than it is longer in disappointments.

Having been in the position to hire people in the past I can only use this simple analogy. I have hired many good people over my years in business. These good people have went on to live prosperous lives and help make the companies that I hired them under good productive employees. THere has been a time or two that I have looked at a resume, was impressed with their credentials and experience and after two face to face interviews was certain that they were the best for the job - so, I hired them. Sometimes those great and impressive people just could not cut the mustard. Their flaws shown through and it seemed like everything they put their hands on self destructed. So I fired them and started over until I found the right person for the position. This year I am firing President Obama by not voting for him. He was hired into that position to complete a task that he even said he could do in three years. I watched him speaj against gay marriage one day and three years later recant. I have seen him on TV infering to a Russian leader that until he is elected again he was not as flexible to help him (this to persuay Russina voters to cast their vote for him this year). I have seen nearly 16 trillion added to the debt of this country (not inclding Bush's addition).

I could care less if Obama was American or AFrican/Nigerian. I cold care less if he was Muslim/Chrsitian. All I care about is that he has been dishonest, flip floppy on controversial subjects and has yet to tackle the hightening points of his election speeches. We can not suffer another four years going backwards,we must move forwards. Given the choice between the two - I would rather chance someone new that might be able to help verses someoen that has made things worst.

"At least…"? I think that that says more about yourself than it does about either Romney or Obama. I guess whatever else Romney has done, who it has affected and what it says about his character is, in your view, irrelevant. Your accusations concerning Obama would be interesting if they had any validity.

I think anyone that would vote for anyone that belonged a ocult probably belongs to a ocult also.I also believe anyone that would vote for a morman without reading the book of mormans,which is available to anyone interested enough to read it and if you still feel the same way vote for the man .Only a fool would vote before reading "THE BOOK OF MORMANS"so don't come back crying saying I didn't know,that your responsibility to know who you vote for.

Most of the people in Murray county don't even vote so your wasting your breath man ,most of us in Murray County don't read,don't give a shi* about nothing,go to church to hunt the bad women, we have found that is where they go to pray for forgiveness for what they have done the rest of the week.Most of the preachers know this also and we have a lot of competition in church because the preachers get to pat the little kids on the head and the women seem to love that a lot.Have been thinking about becoming a preacher or a politican because it seems like they have a much easier time getting what they want.When your in Murray County your in hog heaven,when it comes to women.

Someone said theyd rather vote for a Mormon than a Muslim. And I must say I agree with that too. I'll say that I'm not concerned with the ins and outs of the candidate's respective personalities. that may or may not make me an idiot in your book, and I really don't care. What I'm concerned with is the candidates potential to run a country, and since our commander in chief is clearly not very good at doing that, I'll go with the candidate who has excelled in positions of power. Be it at other peoples expense or not.
Business isn't about EVERYONE making it. There are gonna be winners and there are gonna be losers. If your company got bought out by Bain then apparently your company was a loser and Bain was the winner. I'm voting for Romney. I have no idea why you would purposefully submit yourself to tax increases, higher cost of living, increased welfare, and repeated deficits.

The IMO and KING21 don't even have a clue as to what they are talking about ,they are most likely just slimy Republicans because they sure do lie a lot to try to achieve their objective .Obama is doing his job very well,he has got us on the way to recovery from Bush's deep Shi* ECO.and I also "have or had" a whole deck of bush's cards of terroist to kill and Obama has just about killed all of them,I have been taking them out as they are killed and don't have to many left.That's the Republican way smile very big and lie often,just watch any of them on tv and pay attention to their smile if they are smiling they are lying."SAD BUT TRUE",makes me want to throw up,how about you.

You can't even out together a coherent sentence. Go on. Ain't nobody lying here but you. Let's hear one legitimate reason to vote for Obama. And if it's legitimate, I may change my vote.
