Obama has destroyed our economy and made America weak. I would vote for ANYONE else - even Hillary. At least she does not hate America and want to destroy it.

Bill Clinton of Romney::

"a man who has been governor and had a sterling business career crosses the qualification threshold."

Let´s see::

MBA and JD Harvard University
Private Equity CEO/Investor/CEO of Winter Olympics/MA Governor/Speaker
Been married to the same wife for over 40 years - shows lot´s of character
25 years private sector experience / 4 years public sector experience
80% success rate at Bain Capital, around 100,000 net-net jobs created
Brought down the debt/deficit and unemployment down to 4.7% by the time he left MA
Sends 15% of his yearly income to various charities and churches, millions of dollars
Turned around the Olympics from bankruptcy to solvency, saving and adding jobs
Smart, a natural born leader, makes things happen, accomplished, successful, proven track record, very presidential, understands the economy inside out.

This election is a no-brainer!

Romney's Massachusetts ranked 47th in job creation - sign me up! On the bright side, he does wear that magic mormon underwear that protects him. If he's elected president, does his magic underwear protect all of us? It does? Sweet!

I have a perfectly valid reason for voting FOR Mitt Romney....a vote for Romney is a vote AGAINST Comrade Barrack Hussein Obama and his bleeding heart communist hippie liberal party.

In 2008 I voted for Obama to prove that I wasn't "racist"....this time I'm voting against Obama to prove that I'm intelligent.

Obama has a lot to not like...

People voted for Obama because they didn't like Bush didn't they? And Bush wasn't even running for president.

So, Vote for Romney if you don't like Obama!!!

This is nuts. When Obama was inaugurated, the economy was shedding 750,000 jobs a month, due to a financial crisis caused by greed and deregulation. After years of slow but steady growth, repukes think he's to blame for unemployment and the spending that kept us from falling off a cliff? Even Sean Hannity knows better than that. Turn him off and think, meatheads.
Most of the financial crisis was caused BECAUSE of regulation. Ever heard of Dodd-Frank? Banks were forced to loan money to people that they new were bad risks. Government meddling always causes chaos when it tries to make things better in the Private Sector. As for the Shedding of jobs slowing down......Eeven a dog that's shedding slows down losing hair when most of it is gone. The jobs are mostly gone for those who lost them and the "Big Eared Bozo" in the Whitehouse just goes around blaming Europe, Bush,Arabs,Earthquakes,..and on and on.

So I guess this puts you in the "vote for Obama again" pile with threst of the willing blind.

Unemployment starting under Bush was rising because of the collapse in the housing market and financial institutions. What did the dims do when the Bush administration warned about the problems with Freddie Mac & Fannie Mae? NOTHING -- Barney Frank said everything was fine.

Multiple administrations share the blame for the problems, and a lot was under Clinton when the dims wanted everyone to own a home regardless of whether they could afford it.

factcheck.org has an excellent analysis --

Democrats? Republicans? The Real Deal -(link at bottom for more information)

The Real Deal


So who is to blame? There's plenty of blame to go around, and it doesn't fasten only on one party or even mainly on what Washington did or didn't do. As The Economist magazine noted recently, the problem is one of "layered irresponsibility ... with hard-working homeowners and billionaire villains each playing a role." Here's a partial list of those alleged to be at fault:
•The Federal Reserve, which slashed interest rates after the dot-com bubble burst, making credit cheap.

•Home buyers, who took advantage of easy credit to bid up the prices of homes excessively.

•Congress, which continues to support a mortgage tax deduction that gives consumers a tax incentive to buy more expensive houses.

•Real estate agents, most of whom work for the sellers rather than the buyers and who earned higher commissions from selling more expensive homes.

•The Clinton administration, which pushed for less stringent credit and downpayment requirements for working- and middle-class families.

•Mortgage brokers, who offered less-credit-worthy home buyers subprime, adjustable rate loans with low initial payments, but exploding interest rates.

•Former Federal Reserve chairman Alan Greenspan, who in 2004, near the peak of the housing bubble, encouraged Americans to take out adjustable rate mortgages.

•Wall Street firms, who paid too little attention to the quality of the risky loans that they bundled into Mortgage Backed Securities (MBS), and issued bonds using those securities as collateral.

•The Bush administration, which failed to provide needed government oversight of the increasingly dicey mortgage-backed securities market.

•An obscure accounting rule called mark-to-market, which can have the paradoxical result of making assets be worth less on paper than they are in reality during times of panic.

•Collective delusion, or a belief on the part of all parties that home prices would keep rising forever, no matter how high or how fast they had already gone up.

The U.S. economy is enormously complicated. Screwing it up takes a great deal of cooperation. Claiming that a single piece of legislation was responsible for (or could have averted) the crisis is just political grandstanding. We have no advice to offer on how best to solve the financial crisis. But these sorts of partisan caricatures can only make the task more difficult.

That's because you're an idiot. We're slowly climbing out of the ditch retardicans steered us into. It's cost a freakin' fortune: stimulus, bailouts, unemployment benefits. Why hand repukes the keys again? If Romney were to win, the headlines should say WE'RE ALL RETARDICANS NOW!

You would have to hate America if your even considering voteing for Obama. Everything the man has done and said and all the lies his past, his present, should give you a good ideal of where we are heading in the future. Lets quit the blameing of all his screw ups on Bush and everything from A-Z. That right there shows me what kind of person he is. Its just flat out this way. The man says he would have our economy and unemployment on track in three years or he would retire. Now whats funny is that I still see the add today of Bush Sr saying NO NEW TAXES. I wonder if they will be playing all of Obamas famous lies 20 years from now? No they would have to make a series of it. The man is not getting reelected and if he does theres something seriously wrong with the system. Hes a one term president that was in one term to long. Did more damage to this country in his 4 years than all presidents combined. Now this comeing from someone who voted for him and had all the faith in the world in him and Iam very dissapointed in him and myself for falling for this used car sellsman. If he would by some miricle get reelected you die-hard Obama fans will regret being the ones responsable for the fall of this country. We can not afford and have no other choice than to go with Romney.

----------

That's only true if we already have government by billionaires, for billionaires. We almost do, but not quite. We still are in a one citizen, one vote situation. Republican governors are carving away at it by removing voters from rolls, but the fact that it's illegal has slowed them down quite a bit. One citizen, one vote - hard to deal with if you're counting on corporations and the wealthy to put you over the top.

I still remember Obama signing his support for the ballon mortgage when he was a senator. He hates guns and will do everything he can to ban them all. What about our second amendment? He promised our troops would be pulled out within what a year or so? Obama did not kill bin Ladin some navy seals did that and they don't like Obama btw bush laid the ground work in finding bin Ladin. Obama got a call one night and was told bin Ladin was found he said take him. That's all Obama had to do with that scenario. Why does he hate America all he does is support other countries what about our own. He dislikes our military. One last thing you can't blame the house senate or congress about the bills that have been passed he signed them. We are losing our country and he is making it worse. Between the taxes and penalties if u don't have your own healthcare it's all bs vote NO OBAMA if you love our country. If he wins we will lose everything.

There are millions of people in this country who want something for nothing. They will vote for Obama. There are millions of people who hate anyone more successful than they are. They will vote for Obama. There are millions of people who hate whites. They will vote for Obama. There are millions of people who hate Christians. They will vote for Obama. There are millions of people who hate America and what it stands for. They will vote for Obama.

Lem, do you have any idea how stupid you sound when you say people vote for Obama because they hate America? You're not helping, unless you're trying to make the word "republican" mean "screeching wingnut".

I agree obama is a doosh bag, who completely and utterly failed the public of what he promised. He promised great change, but gave us terrible change instead. These last four years have been the darkest days of my life, and not only mine but so many people around. theres just no jobs out there.
