Vice-President Biden’s speech to military families who lost their loved ones was very powerful and emotional and hit right to the core of why the American people don’t connect to Mormon RINO Mitt Romney… Romney could never talk and connect to people the way President Obama and VP Biden does because he see corporations as people as he takes pleasure in firing people or destroying their livelihood by shutting down a business and bleeding away all its assets for profits and leaving people without a pension all while laughing his ass off about it.

It's interesting to note that over the past decade the Democratic party has become conservative when it comes to wars but the Republican party has become more liberal increasing and escalating the cost and debt burden of wars.

Change IS here!

2008: Mitt Romney wants to add at least 100,000 troops and raise military spending to at least “4% of the GDP”. Easy to say when he dodged the draft and none of his kids have served their country.

I can't relate to Rich Money. For his sake, I wish I could. But I can't. I wish I was one of the 1% who was paid millions in bonuses for tanking the economy and hoarding the tax savings and wealth instead of actually spending it to move the economy and create jobs. But I can't relate. I can't relate to someone who took those tax savings and shipped it overseas. I can't relate to someone who thinks the answer to rising gas prices is giving oil and gas companies more oil to charge me an arm and a leg for. Rich Money probably doesn't even feel a dent in his pocketbook.

At least the Democrats who are also part of the 1% are pushing for tax increases for themselves and the wealthy who hoarded the wealth to pay down this massive debt. If Rich Money and his 1% are not going to spend their tax savings on the economy we might as well pay down the Bush GOP debt.

I find it funny that after 4 years of whining about government and taxes....that the candidate the GOPTEA birthers nominate is a white silver-spooned Mormon Obama. Hilarious!

What happened to conservatism?----Ron Paul is probably shaking his head asking that question too.

Great!! Thank you, Mr. Vice President. How about
all those confrontations that are waiting to happen
all over this planet? It is not realistic to
assume that we will not be drawn into another
conflict; rather, we should prepare for the worst
so that we do not get caught with our pants
down again.

We need to bring our troops home and have them patrol and protect our borders. Set up army facilities all along the America-Mexico border and along our coast. Not in Iraq and Afghanistan. If they want to confront us....then they'll have to confront us here. Instead of us going there. Do you know why they hate us so much? Because we're squatting in their homes with a gun pointed at them.

You must have forgotten that when Bush was intent on attacking Iran, it was Biden himself who told him that he would be impeached.

Our enemies are building up while the chimp in chief is out campaigning. Just like Woodrow Wilson, FDR, Truman and LBJ. You're as funny as a cross eyed surgeon with a case of the shakes. The phoney Marine doesn't realise that Biden was speaking to cadets who haven't been to war yet!

You must've forgotten that congress approved Afghanistan AND Iraq with Bush's request. He wouldn't have attacked Iran without congressional approval. Something nobama doesn't understand. Bush didn't send federal troops right away to New Orleans because THAT was against the constitution. The enept domcrat Blaco wouldn't give the approval.

You libs need to read the contsitution some day. It's a great piece of paper.

There was no way the Democrats could impeach President Bush. They hated him. If they could hurt him or the Republicans they would be all over it. They know the people are against anything they have to offer, so they will try to stir up trouble, but it won't work. Nothing they can do will change the numbers. Gov Romney will be sworn in as the 45th President of the United States om January 20, 2013. Let the parties begin!!!

Romney worked for 2 years at the Boston Consulting Group, and then got hired by Bain Consulting in 1977 where he became a vice president in 1978. He had success working with companies like Outboard Marine Corp., Burlington Industries, Monsanto, and Corning. In 1984, Romney started the venture capital firm Bain Capital, LLC.

At Bain Capital, Romney helped start new companies and turned around failing ones. He was behind the start up of Staples. Starting with one store in 1986, Staples now is the world's largest office products company with $24 billion in sales in 2009. He also helped companies such as Sealy, Brookstone, The Sports Authority, and Domino's, along with thousands of jobs at these locations.

Salt Lake City Olympics: Romney refused his salary and donated $1 million of his own money to the cause. He then streamlined the games by cutting costs and eliminating waste like fancy perks. Romney also brought in $180 million in revenue from new sponsors and broke the record for raising private money for an Olympics - winter or summer.

In the end, the Olympics were a huge success and the games actually turned a $100 million profit. Mitt Romney indeed saved the 2002 Winter Olympic Games.

Romney came in and got right to work. He cut spending and eliminated waste in government by cutting out duplication and inefficiencies. In one case he consolidated 15 human service agencies. Romney also cut the number of state employees. He raised fees but did not raise taxes and balanced the budget every year.

The unemployment rate in Massachusetts also fell from 6.3% when he took office in January of 2003 to 4.6% by June of 2007, the end of Romney's last fiscal year.

Barrack nobama--failure with shovel ready, failure with cash for clunkers, failure with obamacare, failure with solyndra, fisker, getting the Olympics to Chicago--failure

America credit downgrade----nobama success!

Yes. They are getting very desperate. It is funny though watching them have to swallow their pride and endorse Rich Money---their most liberal candidate. They can't even campaign on his record and instead have to resort to attacking President Obama instead. Because if they had to defend Rich Money's record they would have to defend the only two good things he did as governor: 1) Romneycare, and 2) raising "fees" in the state to get the budget in order. Two very liberal acts which President Obama has either accomplished already or will do in his second term.

The nutters can't even defend Romney or point to any of his accomplishments LOL! And now even Trump has to bend over for Rich Money----have you asked for the Mexican's birth certificate yet Trump?

President Obama stopped the job losses caused by the failed Bush GOP policies and have turned them into consecutive months of job gains. The unemployment rate as held steady in the 8% range instead of at the 20% range where we would have if we had slid into a depression.

And don't worry, President Obama will be raising "fees" like Rich Money did in his second term once we get the obstructionist GOPTEA baggers out of congress so that we work on balancing the budget. President Obama has already started his spending cuts (e.g. NASA) now that he helped the country avert another Great Depression.
