Aren't you behind the times? It's common knowledge. Documents were turned over to public interest and watch dog groups which are set up to fight corruption. This is America, last time I checked. Although you would probably feel more comfortable in North Korea. Don't be so lazy... look up those groups, Judicial Watch is one of them and there are several more. Hate to burst your bubble but the Obamas are wasteful free-loaders. They offer nothing to this country but use tax dollars for their own selfish purposes. Their charitable giving is a joke too.
Watch dog groups huh?...yeah those are reliable...lol.

The Judicial Watch is a "conservative, non-partisan (how exactly does that work by the way?) American educational foundation that promotes transparency, accountability and integrity in government, politics and the law." So excuse me if I laugh at this as a 'source' of anything other than conservative agenda clap trap and propaganda.

IF I were to go anywhere other than America (and yes it still is and I know that as well as you do, so can the phony patriotism) it would be Scotland, home of my ancestors.

1. Bush is personally responsible for 911 and for ignoring OBL just 6 months after 911. You are responsible for Bush and, hence, for 911. Take responsibility.
2. Republiscums in Congress are preventing 1 million new jobs TODAY. Republiscums hate jobs. Without them in Congress the unemployment rate would be 6%.
3. Romney did not pay taxes for 10 years. Romney is the poster boy for the moochers of the 47%.
4. Romney is a pathologically lying sociopath out to destroy middle class families any way he can. He is a four-time draft dodging war monger too cowardly to go serve his country. He is a 10-year non tax paying leech. He is a hate-America Bain job outsourcer. He is a hate-American tax dodging Cayman Island loving probable FELON.
Paul Ryan supports SOME GIRLS RAPE EASY.
5. Romney is a probable tax dodging FELON running for the office of President. Everything in his sorry, deceitful, deceptive, lying, scumbag, America-hating life is - as his father said - open for scrutiny and transparency.
Romney Sr would box Willard's ears in shame that his son is a bullying, assaulting, despicable fratpunk and probable FELON.
6. Romney the Coward is a four time draft dodging yellow bellied war monger. His sons are also cowards. Romney pissed on our troops by deliberately ignoring them at the convention. Romney pisses on the US military that he says is a lower class mob who are just cannon fodder for him to use to fatten his bank account.
7. Romney openly denigrates Ann who is a nasty misogynist. Romney says he is tired of her and ignores her...and he says this IN PUBLIC. No wonder she is such a nasty example of screeching, grasping, greedy, lazy bummery. At family gatherings Romney is known for serving himself first, eating alone and then leaving as he hates being with the kids.
8. Prochoice is FREEDOM which you Republiscum Fascist hate. You also hate women especially Paul Some Girls Rape Easy Ryan who thinks that rape is a figment of women's imagination because, you know, women always want all men at all times and only cry rape the next morning.
Yes, Republiscums are filth.
9. It WAS the Presidential Daily Briefing that Bush ignored because he was on a one month VACATION before 911. It WAS the Mission Accomplished banner years before Obama ended the Bush inept run War. Yes, we blame YOU for 911. Gore would never have let that happen because Gore is not a lazy bum like Republiscums.
10. Obama:
- 30 months of job creation
- housing market recovering with housing prices rising again
- stock market fully recovered
- Auto industry alive, OBL dead
- ObamaCare will SAVE MEDICARE
- ObamaCare will SAVE THE LIVES of tens of millions of Americans that Romney wants to kill
- Obama, well on the road to economic recovery that Romney is trying desperately to derail so he can pummel the middle class as Bush did.
The task ahead of you is to convince voters of that.

So far all I hear is:

Yes there are. Lots of them. RINO's DINO's whatever you want to call them. None of them want to call a spade a spade either. Our fiscal situation is a wreck. For 30+ years we knew this was coming. Now it's starting to hit.

The math is simple. Spend less then you take in. In our case, a lot less and pay the bills.

Private Social Security is going to happen. One way or another. f you are in your 40's or 50', be prepared to live with your kids.

I hope your right about Privatizing Social Security because originally FDR intended it that way but still based on a tax which still makes it the Property of the Federal Government, but FDR still didnt trust the Banks with the Money, same institutions that Federal Government had to bailout in the 1930's besides even FDR used the Social Security Trust Fund as a Slush Fund during his administration.

Tax cuts are not a prudent thing right now as tax cut fever has left us with less revenues than we need to run our government. In spite of the claims by those who tried to sell the tax cuts to us, lower taxes did not generate more additional revenues through increased growth above and beyond the size of the tax cuts as promised. We are to the point now where Medicare, Medicade, and all other social spending combined except Social Security is roughly equal to the size of the deficit.

Did Mitt Romney Raise Taxes Or ‘Close Loopholes’?

By Benjy Sarlin, Talking Points Memo

"It's straightforward," Michael Widmer, president of the Massachusetts Taxpayers Foundation, told McClatchy Newspapers in 2007. "He raised corporate taxes."

Romney also raised new revenue with more than just fee hikes. He closed 22 tax loopholes worth between $850 million and $1.2 billion, according to the Massachusetts Taxpayers Foundation, an independent watchdog group. A recent New York Times article reported an even higher estimate of $1.5 billion in loophole closures.

The thing you have to keep in mind is Romney is a fixer. He gets elected to fix things based on the voter majority. In Massachusetts, the voter majority is ultra liberal. Nationwide, the voter majority is fed up with too much Government, and the dismal economy and excessive unemployment. So that is what he will address. Since the nation, as a whole, is not an ultra liberal majority, he will utilize more conservative methods to fix the Country.

Romney is no conservative besides isnt going to fix US unemployment problem either because Romney was one of them Closing Businesses & shipping US jobs overseas to China for the Bottom line to maximize profits which is a short term goal because they are dependent on the vibrant US ecomony but at the same time the jobs people used to have to make money & spend in the US economy, their over in China now which soon the US is going to hit bottom and I mean Rock Bottom and there is only going to be a select few with money here in the US and its going to be the Wallstreet Crowd that will destroy the US Economically which they have done twice once with government invovlement 1929 and 2008 with government involvement.

Romney would go wild with executive orders with mandates & Increased Fees and that is what scares me knowing he is from Ultra Liberal Massachusetts and what he did as Governor. Obamacare is nothing more than a Conservative Idea the Democrats implemented from 1989 even Romneycare was modeled after the Conservative Hertiage Foundation's "Assuring Affordable Health Care for All Americans"

Again, Obama's already done it, yet you won't vote for Romney because you THINK he might do the same thing.

Face the facts, Obama, who's already screwed the pooch, or Romney, who might possibly screw the pooch, is going to be elected President in 2012.
