This came to me from an emailer. Think what you will of Mitt Romney; compare the following to Barack Obama, and vote accordingly in November. Don’t forget that there are House and Senate elections as well. One way to keep a president in line is to surround him with constitutionalists.
1. Drop-dead, collar-ad handsome with gracious, statesmanlike aura. Looks like every central casting’s #1 choice for Commander-in-Chief.
2. Been married to ONE woman his entire life and has been faithful to her, including through her bouts with breast cancer and MS.
3. No scandals or skeletons in his closet.(How boring is that?)
4. Can’t speak in a fake, southern ” black preacher voice ” when up at the podium.
5. Highly intelligent. Graduated cum laude from both Harvard Law School and Harvard Business School ... and by the way, his academic records are NOT sealed.
6. Doesn’t smoke or drink alcohol and has never done drugs, not even in the counter-culture age when he went to college. Too square for today’s America?
7. Represents an America of “yesterday” where people believed in God, went to church, didn’t screw around, worked hard, and became a SUCCESS!
8. Has a family of five great sons …. and none of them have police records or are in drug rehab. But of course, they were raised by a stay-at-home mom, and that “choice” alone has prompted America’s scorn.
9. Oh yes ... he’s a MORMON. We need to be very afraid of that very strange religion that teaches its members to be clean-living, patriotic, fiscally responsible, charitable, self-reliant, and honest. Compare Romney’s Mormonism with the rhetoric of Jeremiah Wright.
10. And one more point ... pundits say because of his wealth, he can’t relate to ordinary Americans. I guess that’s because he made that money HIMSELF ... as opposed to marrying it or inheriting it from Dad. Apparently, he didn’t understand that actually working at a job and earning your own money made you un-relatable and offensive to Americans

Idiotic people, Obama needs time. Can't just fix a pile of mess Bush left behind in three years. Mitt Romney will be another Nixon; he seems like the type to be a crook.

Since Obama took office things aren't better, they aren't the same, they aren't a little worse...things are terrible.

Nixon...did he attempt to cover-up...yes. Policies and managing the county he was considered damn good.

I hope Romney is as smart as Nixon.

: Not much has changed lately as both candidates are hard on the campaign trail. Just the usual back and forth accusations, kissing babies, fundraising, etc... has all that has really happened lately. Speculation is beginning to stir that Romney is going to announce his running mate very soon which could affect the 2012 Presidential Election odds. Dubbed the "veepstakes", Geoffrey Dunn of The Huffington Post has actually released his own odds (but not actually for betting purposes) for who will run with Mitt Romney. Right now, they favor Rob Portman at 2/1 but Tim Pawlenty is right behind at 3/1. Marco Rubio, Chris Christie, and Condoleeza Rice round out the list but we won't know who it's going to be for sure until it comes out of Romney's mouth.

As for the betting odds, they haven't changed much either. We're basically waiting for the VP announcement to see the next change in the odds to be the next U.S. President. But, for now, the Democrats and Obama hold a firm lead over the Republicans and it's not even close... Right now, a $1 bet on the Dems only pays $.59 versus a $1 bet on the Republicans that would pay $1.40. Keep checking back for more election odds updates as they become available

You can state facts about how Obama, with little help from Congress has kept this country out of the crapper. He has backed the banks (which is a blatant trend of the right), never touched your guns (except for producing legislation that allows people to carry a gun on trains), bailed out GM keeping thousands employed, been more strict on marijuana than Bush, deported more illegals than any other, and I could go on and on but right wingers will always believe he is a staunch liberal that is a pure socialist because the crazies on the right along with there mega corporate sponsors have convinced so many of this. Obama is not the best president ever but Romney will put this country in the hole. Give Obama a super majority in congress and watch how fast things would turn around. What he has done to better this country thus far has been amazing considering the obstruction he has had in the right. You want to see who would be the person that will continue the Bush era destruction of our economy then vote Romney. He will allow for him and his super rich buddies to pillage the middle class and continue to get more rich at the working man's expense. Follow the money as to whom is the people that support either candidate and you will see why Mittens is getting huge donations from a select few millionaires and billionaires that all have a stake in his possible presidency. To be regulated less so they can pollute with few restrictions, and to have less regulations to restrict them from continuing corrupt activities that hurt us but produce insane profits for them. If we had a better option and even if he or she was on the right (if they were fair and balanced to some extent....LOL) I would think about voting for them but im going to have to vote for Obama over this complete tool named Mitt
