CASE CLOSED
Obama: presidential, calm and truthful. He is the man we trust with the nuclear trigger.

Romney: childish, disrespectful, bullying, out of control pathological liar who infects the very ground he walks on. This is the man we wouldn't trust to hold our wallet for a minute.

What Romney's flaccid debate proved is that the GOP is actually looking for a liar. Republiscums want a scumbag to lead them. The rank and file want to be pillaged by 17 billionaires who own Romney. The cloth coat Republiscum in flyover country, old, obese, poor, uneducated and part of the 47% are so full of self loathing and fear they want to be spit upon and told by Ann Romney that her dressage horse is more important than they are.

I never realized that Romney, immoral, unethical, pathologically lying, secretive, deceitful and denigrating is exactly what Republiscums want their leaders to be.

Who knew? Last night proved it. 30 minutes of Romney promising to balance the budget using card tricks and magic wands saying ignore the man with the $7 TRILLION in tax cuts and military spending on the nation's credit card.

Sad that the GOP is now the party of derelicts, hucksters, grifters, liars, criminals and thieves.

Republiscum want a liar to lead them. I actually did not believe than, although I had heard it before, until last night.

If Romney had told a truth, any truth, the GOP would have savaged him. Instead, it go what it wanted, 30 minutes of nonstop lying.

Romney has NO specific details of his plans only hot air talking points. Voters go to Romney website ( www.mittromney.com ) and read his specific details of his plan if you can find any. Good luck.

Yes, Romney's campaign has to be SECRETIVE.

It has to be secretive because its purpose is to pummel the middle class into poverty, take over the Government on behalf of the ultrarich, disenfranchise 90% of Americans and declare a fascist takeover and the end of the USA.

He cannot say these things outloud although, considering how stupid the rightwing was over his 30 minutes of nonstop lying, he might get away with it now.

This go around Republiscum tried to disenfranchise 500,000 people in Philly alone. Republiscum tries to make money, via Citizens United, more important than people who vote.

Republiscum declares corporations to be people and corporate money to be as sacred as freedom of speech.

The entire purpose of Republiscum is to consolidate power into the 1% who own as much as the bottom 90% combined ALREADY. The stupid idiots of the
Republiscum party, in their racist hatred and abject fear of the future, are selling their country and themselves down the river and doing it on purpose.

God help the USA who has such traitors in it.

You wouldn't recognize a lie if it walked up and decked your behind. If you did, you wouldn't be thinking Obama isn't lying to you. What a bunch of bottom feeding fools you are.

You are a lie. Your entire life is a lie. You live inside a fantasyland bordered by the WSJ opinion crapsheet, FoxFraud and BogusBreitblather. You are full of hate, full of anger, full of fear and nothing else.

You are gutter trash and your children will be gutter trash...so says Ann Romney who thinks half of Americans are less important than her dressage horse. You know, the one that she takes a $77K deduction for because it is, you know, a business she can take advantage of for her, you know, MS.

The Wall Street Journal reports that America’s uncompetitive corporate tax code is driving U.S. businesses to relocate their headquarters to other countries. One of the major reasons these businesses are fleeing our shores is taxes. This is wholly unsurprising, since the U.S. now has the highest corporate tax rate in the developed world. No matter where a U.S. business relocates its headquarters, it would face a lower rate. In fact, the U.S. rate—the federal rate combined with the average state rate—is more than 39 percent. The average tax rate in other developed countries is 25 percent. The U.S. is an outlier in the wrong direction. To get competitive again, Congress and the states need to lower the combined rate to 25 percent, or preferably below.
Losing corporate headquarters is troubling for the economy and for the localities that lose those major parts of their communities. Just ask St. Louis now that Anheuser-Busch is a Belgian company, largely because of tax reasons. Just as troubling, however, is that because of our high corporate tax rate, the U.S. is missing out on new investment from both domestic and foreign-based businesses. The new investments these businesses are making are going to all those other countries with more competitive rates. This is costing our economy jobs every day.

As usual you back of the bus stupid Republiscum fail Econ 101.
You think that charging a lower tax rate creates jobs. Where? How? Prove that utter nonsense. What a stupid person you are. This is why we were in the Bush ditch.
This is why Reagan destroyed the USA's balance sheet and turned us from the world's largest creditor into the world's largest debtor. 100% of Republiscums destroy the USA's finances and, like the filthy scumbags you are, blame it on the left which is always cleaning up after your stinky messes.
While you sit back and wait for another seatbelt law.

If they collect more, they just collect more, no need to not have more revenue by raising anyones tax.

Just plain ol common sense, go camping, 10 people pitch in for beers, YOU go camping only one person pitches in for beers.

You are just an angry child that can't express yourself without name calling, bullying, and being cranky all the time. As for the Ann Romney slam, don't like the fact that she takes advantage of a tax deduction that her husband is discussing taking away? Talk to your congressman and get the law changed. But, you should probably be aware that your congressman also takes advantage of the same tax deductions they wrote into the law. You libs are the biggest hypocrites on the planet. Whine because people take advantage of the tax laws that your congressman wrote into the law, but don't care that your representatives take advantage of those same laws. It's always someone else's fault...typical childlike attitude.

Look at their annual reports, at least of the public corporations. As for the "loopholes", go talk to a Corporate Executive and if you talk civilly and go in with an open mind, you just mind get the information you are seeking and it will probably surprise you.

When Obama was crying about the banks making bad loans I was really hoping Mitt would go for the jugular and ask who was the lawyer who sued the banks forcing them to make the bad loans. Who was the president who passed legislation forcing banks to have a higher % of sub-prime "Bad" loas on their books? Obama and Clinton, seems the people who complain and blame the most are the ones most at fault.
This peaked my interest so I did some research. I learned that the mortgage loan problems actually started as far back as Jimmy Carter (D) who was an advocate of housing for minorities. When Clinton's (D)administration was in office a bill was passed that made it mandatory for banks to approve a % of subprime loans. By doing so it mushroomed into we all know was a disaster. As lending standards were relaxed all too many folks jumped in, minorities or not, and took advantage of the situation, many of them in no position to ever honor their end of the deal. So, to me it seems clear. The liberal thinking is this country should acknowledge their responsibility of our economic mess instead of always, always trying to blame Bush and other Republicans.

If you REALLY want an informed opinion, read the latest interview from Perot -- he called it then, and he hasn't lost his perspective.

Anyone else remember his coining the phrase (or close to it) If NAFTA is signed, just listen for the giant sucking sound from this country, as jobs leave it!"

God, people, pay attention!
