His opinion is just, an opinion, and everybody has one. Romney is competent and responsible...can Villagarosa make the same claim?

I love Paul Ryan's idea of the Medicare vouchers so that all of the old people who did not save anything to live retired can no longer get by scott free and live big off of the government. Once they have to spend $6-12K a year on their health insurance, they can no longer take all of these trips to Europe and buy second homes on government money. These are the very people who are in the tea party. These are the ones who tell everyone else not to live off of the government, they are the ones telling young people to go without SS and Medicare, telling them to save for their own retirements. yeah, as long as they don't have to. So it would be really good if the politicians forced the tea party to put their money where their big mouths are and force them to take responsibility and pay up for their expensive old aged heatlh care. And, Medicare has $85 trillion of debt, so vouchers would get rid of that huge debt that is hanging over all of our heads. And, this tea party wants spending cuts, well this is where most of the money is going. So let them put their money up to match the stuff that is coming out of their mouths. And, if they don't like the idea of losing government health care and they don't want to lose their government monies and their socialism, then let them stand up for socialism and fight for a national sales tax to keep this stuff they want. But, they are not going to be able to simply keep taking most of the government monies and pretending that is not what they are doing. Reality is going to step up to the plate pretty soon here due to the massive debts in SS and Medicare.
Wait, Romney-Ryan have help from Bernanke who is destroying the dollar and keeping interest rates at ZERO so that retirees who actually did save will get no return on their money while spending their nest eggs and becoming penniless as well.

America is pretty much finished but the uninformed keep hoping that something good will happen.

That Obama PERSON is absolutely no JFK, for he OBAMA is like the Communism with aliens.
But that Obama has encouraged terrors in the M.E., to make crisis of his own, because this Obama is in any way identifying to anyone of any background of faith and cultures on earth but likes aliens as if he feels alike, with aliens--it all means he does not like you people of this planet from anywhere and all places.

Mormons ARE GREAT TO BE PRESIDENT.

You people out there on the west coast should look forward to Romney as your new president who will do you a lot of good.
You many different people out there must understand your imminent sake is at hand, that you need to give a full evaluation of the next course with no more Obama.
IT IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH OBAMA --NO MATTER WHAT HE SAYS,AS ALL HAVE BEEN PROVEN that Obama is a big failure and the biggest trouble maker for all of you in modern times.
Time is for you to move on.
YOU SHOULD KNOW THE CORRECTNESS AND THE RIGHT THINGS TO DO.
Why do you need to ask too much?
YOU CAN HELP YOURSELVES WHAT ARE TO BE REQUIRED
Mormons ARE GREAT TO BE PRESIDENT.
MORMONS resemble the faith of god.
Y0U ARE TO MAKE A MORMON TO BE YOUR NEW PRESIDENT NEXT.
After almost four years of troubling many of you, Obama is impossible to do any good in the economics, including security and other policy matters.
In economics, Obama has just done what you don't want--by making more people poorer while making super-wealthy more wealthy, to entice the off-balancing of vast disproportional rate of wealth among the population. His appetites for growing large levels of debts are the craving and sprees to dispose your money away.
He cannot do any security by talking about getting bin laden, because the Libya and Egypt crisis was created by him to make the violences by his intrusion way of acts in the regions.
What is he going to do about Libya, as he has done much harms under international attention, which shows US on world stage is being dragged down by him? And that makes more global people for no longer respects of US stand.
What else can you do now?
Why do you need to ask too many questions when you have been doomed by Obama already and since you want to do the recovery which Obama has failed in four years?
How can Obama just do other things of Iraq, and health care, without the focusing on the economy as the economy is the basic priority before anything else--by doing just Iraq? And now he is to do what, to get into the economy he has ruined after four years?
If you think that way, you are out of your minds.
Do you want to ask Romney how to do the economy and foreign policy and so on?
He already told you about the overall ballpark numbers for cutting costs and the basic concepts of how the economy will work.
He had been to the world, to France, Afghanistan, Middle east, Iraq and beyond places, with high exposure of experience on world state of outlook.
At this late time of your stake, you still want to make your direction confused by asking what if Romney gives your numbers and specifics without your providing files and details of what have been done that need to move on, to be . Obama has to turn al these things to Romney without omission so that Romney will have a good work on them for you------all people.
You can do better than that by knowing your stand of getting your new man Romney precedes anything, that Obama is to be rid of, so that, that is the best thing for time allotment and all your needs to get done with.
IT IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH OBAMA --NO MATTER WHAT HE SAYS.
Why do you need to ask too much, as Obama as been proven unworkable, to be fired, but only that you know all his failed matters and the economy are as important and essential as your concrete basic steps to move on for now?
But continuance with Obama makes you act like psychotics and will make your future gloomy, and do you know that?

Mitt Romney’s Fully Documented Liberal Left-Wing Social and Fiscal Record

• Unilaterally, illegally & unconstitutionally instituted same-sex “marriage” falsely claiming the “court ordered him to.”
• Signed the forerunner to Obamacare (Romneycare) into law which includes $50 tax-subsidized elective surgical abortions including late-term abortions into law (3 years AFTER his fake “pro-life conversion.”)
• Boosted funding for homosexual “education” starting in kindergarten.
• Opposes a ban on homosexual scoutmasters.
• Promised the homosexual Republican “Log Cabin Republicans” he wouldn’t oppose “gay marriage” in return for their endorsement.
• Instituted a quasi-socialist healthcare plan endorsed by Hillary Clinton, Teddy Kennedy and Planned Parenthood that destroyed the Massachusetts’ economy.
• Forced Catholic Charities, the nation’s #1 adoption and foster care service to place children with same sex couples even though he was under no legal obligation to do so as even former Governor Michael Dukakis has acknowledged.
• Increased taxes and fees by close to a billion dollars which destroyed the Massachusetts’ economy and opposed the Bush Tax Cuts.
• Voted # 8 RINO by Human Events.
• Passed over Republican lawyers for three quarters of the 36 judicial vacancies he faced and nominated 2 open homosexuals.
• Criticized Joint Chief’s of Staff, Peter Pace for saying that homosexual acts were “immoral.”
• Supports passage at the state level of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act which would force churches and other religious organizations to hire homosexuals and transvestites or face criminal fines and prosecution.
• Romney supported McCain-Feingold “campaign finance reform”, McCain-Kennedy “comprehensive immigration reform”(i.e. amnesty), and parts of the McCain-Lieberman “carbon cap and trade” bill and opposed the Bush Tax Cuts.

Please take all this into consideration over the next two weeks as you listen to Mitt Romney say anything to get your vote. Remember, it’s not an attack if it’s your record.

Hmmm, let's see he is an empty suit motivated more by his selfish personal ambition rather than ideology. At the University of California at Los Angeles, he was a leader of the Chicano racial separatist organization MEChA. His financial support comes from real estate developers, while his popular support coming from Hispanics, including illegal aliens. He has questionable associations and after he was elected mayor, he said that Mexico will play an important role in shaping his policies. What's Mexcio got to do with his policies?? He likes to throw out the race card every chance he gets. His ex wife probably could tell us even more about this man's apparent lack of character.

Doris, Calif. agrees. Californians are addicted to the acrid stench of abject Failure. No State lusts to leave nothing to their kids like California. Currently TWICE the Debt of any other State $450,000,000,000 and hundreds of billion$ in overpromised, underfunded Public Employee Pensions promise to CRUSH any hope for a bright future for our kids.
Romney doesn't stand a chance here. Obama is plenty good enough for losers like us.

The Presidential election is really meaningless to California.

In addition to Browns upcoming State tax increase, which is the largest in American history, the cost of L.A. DWP's unbelievably extravagant salaries and pensions is increasing electricity prices by 35% over the next two years.

Los Angeles voters lust to fail their families and drive their City into bankruptcy was a political choice we made when they elected Brown and Villa.

Neither Obama nor Romney can save us from ourselves. Calif voted to commit civic suicide.
No one has ever prevented anyone from committing suicide who was committed to committing suicide.
