Romney has done nothing to hurt the middle class. Obama has done that and will continue to do so if reelected.

One definition of the word mean is "small." Mean people live small, think small, and feel small—the smaller, the meaner.
The belief that we are smaller and less powerful than others underlies most meanness, even when that belief is delusional.

Yeah, unfit Mitt didn't close companies and shift the pensions to the government, he didn't didn't didn't !???

Bain froze the workers’ pension benefits and converted them from a defined benefit plan, in which employees were entitled to 75% of the average of their last three years’ salaries, to a cash-balance plan in which they would get a lump sum equal to what they were owed in 1999. Workers were furious. They threatened to sue, but never went through with the lawsuit because they were fearful of losing their jobs. Dade saved $10 to $40 million with this stratagem. The very month Dade did the conversion, it used the projected savings as the basis to borrow $421 million placing Dade in even more debt.

The result was that Dade paid Bain and its partner, Goldman Sachs, the entire amount as a dividend. Bain and Goldman had only put down $81 million to buy the company in the first place. Yet, in June 1999 they received $365 million from the dividend—a gain of 4.3 times their initial investment. Consequently, Dade’s debt more then doubled to $871 million in order to make this huge payment to Bain and Goldman.

Romney had left operational management of Bain that year, though his disclosures show that he owned 16.5 percent of the Bain partnership responsible for the Dade investment until at least 2001. In order to make their loan payments, Dade had to cut not only R&D but also the core of the company. It sold off assets and fired workers. Nevertheless, the whole thing came crashing down in 2002 when Dade filed for bankruptcy protection. It was the end of Bain’s and Goldman’s involvement with Dade. They had looted the entire company, raided the pension fund, albeit indirectly, and caused mega job losses. They had ruined a previously successful company.

Let's talk about Obama and his policies!!!!

The Obama economy continues to plod along with no relief in sight.

It’s difficult to know what’s harder to take, Obama’s constant excuses that this is the best we can do, or the willingness of so many of America's liberal elites to actually believe it.

Obama is constantly reminding us that he inherited the “worst economy since the Great Depression.” But if that is true, history tells us our recovery should be that much stronger.

The seemingly improving unemployment rate, reported Friday at 8.1%, is creeping downward only because millions of Americans are leaving the workforce, too discouraged to look for jobs. The civilian participation rate of potential workers over 16 years of age is down to 63.6%, a level we haven’t seen for decades.

Three years into Obama’s “recovery,” economic growth is averaging a miniscule 2 percent. The president’s puny recovery has been devastating for all Americans, including young people and minorities who can’t find jobs as well as seniors who rely on badly under-funded programs such as Social Security and Medicare. Good intentions are not a substitute for a strong and growing economy.

President Obama, on the other hand, has raised taxes, gunned federal spending through the roof, and larded on hundreds of new regulations with the passage of Obama Care, Dodd Frank and the EPA

America knows what we can expect from four more years of President Obama. He’ll tell us how terrible Republicans are, but does not give us any reason to hope that things will change for the better.

We must ask, is this the best we can do? With President Obama’s commitment to big-government, big-regulation policies of the left, it is the best he can do. But Americans know we as a country we can do better.

No, the anti-Christ will have the respect and admiration of the whole world (most of it at least), Obama is a laughing stock. Thus, the anti-Christ will probably be a pope.

Latin is the official language of the Roman Catholic Church. The Roman Catholic church is the only religion to be recognized by the UN and has a non-voting seat in the UN. The Latin "Vicarius Filii Dei" means, Representative of the Son of God, which is the title of the first pope. Broken down using Roman numerals:

V=5
I=1
C=100
A=no value
R=no value
I=1
U/V=5
S=no value
--------
112

F=no value
I=1
L=50
I=1
I=1
--------
53

D=500
E=no value
I= 1
--------
501

112 + 53 + 501 = 666

The problem with the internet is that it can be very addictive and a complete time waster. People with too much time on their hands can waste a ridiculous amount of hours just browsing and surfing the internet. Eventually the individual is going to need some drama or stimulation. Hey why not randomly attack someone? See if I can get a rise out of them? These sort of people leave mean comments mostly for their own amusement.

Q: What do you call a religious democrat?
A: Someone who gives thanks for what other people have.

Christopher Columbus was the first Democrat. When he left to discover America, he didn't know where he was going. When he got there he didn't know where he was. And it was all done on a government grant.
