Ok, but who has let you down more, Romney or the Messiah? Surely you would answer the latter.
I'll tell you though, the vp's Romney is considering (if true) will lose the election for him. I think if he selects Rubio, he can win (I'm a huge fan of Rubio) and otherwise he loses.
First of all I hate when anyone calls him the Messiah! I never felt he was the answer to everything. In fact I was leaning toward McCain until Palin.

Let me down? Not sure what you mean , as far as the election ads go, they both have.

One of the things I don't like about Romney is that he doesn't know what he stands for, it changes week to week. He's against ACA, but it was good enough for the people of MA. And regarding that stupid ad, Andrea Saule went on Fox News and said if the woman had lived in MA, she would have had insurance. So is it good or is it bad?

As far as my life, after the housing market crash, I was laid off bc the firm I worked at dealt mainly in RE. I got a shit job just so I would have a job. Nearly lost my house, my car, my sanity. It took me two years to get a job comparable to the one I had. I credit that to the fact that things are improving, instead of leaving the position unfilled or having the staff they have cover it, they hired.

I now have money to spend. I can afford the rental car I need this week, 2 years ago I couldn't afford gas.

AS far as VP I too think Rubio would be a excellent pick, however with Romneys ego and arrogance, there is no way he will pick anyone who is more liked than himself.

What was rude? I can't figure out what you are referring to.
Sorry, when he was asked if he felt London was prepared for the Olympics. He for the most part said no. Good chance he was right, but you don't get invited to someones house for dinner and then critize they way the prepared it.

And yesterday romney said that obama wants to gut the welfare work program. Not true, he's trying to give the states more responsibility. Isn't that what romney is for, letting the states decide?
And the ad that you mentioned is garbage, anyone with half a brain knows that. I would hope.
agree. but sadly quite a few people don't follow up to get both sides ,like we do ,and go off spreadin what they heard and believing such outrage. i've been listenng to quite a few opinions and a lot of people are uninformed.

hope all is well......

Let you down as president. Why would anyone look at just the election and not the Messiah's performance? We have watched as the 'Hope and Change' Messiah was going to change the way politics are conducted- only to watch him attempt to sell his senate seat, keep Guantanamo open, line his cabinet with wall street crooks and tax cheats, let off Fanny Mae scott free, bribe his way to a horrible and unpopular heath plan, snub our allies, cancel an important oil pipeline, hide from the biggest oil spill, spend us into oblivion, hire hundreds of thousands of government workers, give them obscene raises, create class warfare, denounce and attack success, etc.

Romney has not done these things, the idiot has- not saying he wouldn't make mistakes, but he can't be the train wreck that the Messiah is. He did well as gov. of Massachusetts.

By the way, the massachusetts healthcare plan was much more popular with the voters than the ACA, so the mandate was there. They are now trying to reform it to reign in the excessive costs, more than can be said of the ACA, which isn't even constitutional, but for an absurd opinion by Roberts.

Your anecdotal 'evidence' of having a better job now than during bush is solid evidence of your not being able to understand germane evidence. Try again (for our entertainment)

1) People are up, people are down, on any given day, ever. It doesn't prove Obama made things better. I'm taking a HUGE hit on a property I'm selling- after 4 years of Obama.

2). Sorry.... I was wrong to start name calling. I was really carrying my annoyance over from 'Awake11'. I am so fed up with people like him. I have a neighbor who is the laziest state worker ever- I stopped speaking to him because of first his George Bush rants and second his pro-Obama rants and his 'rich people' rants (even though he and his wife have a combined income of $ 140k)

I'd love to give the Awakes of the country, the entire state of california, and give them every liberal law they want. Let them destroy their lives, but not mine, thank you.

I do know that just because I'm doing better it doesn't mean everyone is. By the same token the loss you are getting hit with doesn't mean it's worse either.

Which by the way, that sucks and I'm sorry.

It's just been in the last few years that I've tried to become more politicaly aware. I don't know a lot, I'm the first to admit. But when I go downtown and see crowded restaurants and stores, that were empty a few years ago, I'm sorry that tells me things are getting better. Not like it should be, but better.

Answer me this though, do you think anyone could have improved things at a faster rate? I don't. No matter who was in the WH. The reccesion didn't occur over night and it wasn't going to be a quick or easy fix.

And thank you, I appreciate it. I do know how poster's can make people crazy and it is easy to lump everyone together. I do try to be fair and see both sides. I may fail at times, but I try.

Lastly, off topic-but have you notice that motorcycle deaths have increased since we last talked about it? Very very sad.
