I can't wait until the debates and Romney is standing there with a whole year's worth of screaming Rat Wing talking points all based on lies. I suspect the Republicans are going to do every thing they can to avoid Romney debating President Obama. Romney's entire campaign has been to spout Rat Wing talking points. Most of them simply are not true. Romney is going to look like an idiot he is when President Obama starts beating him over the head with facts. The Republican plan is not to win the Presidency yet. They would rather keep focusing on Congress and state level politics to further build their base for an attempt to install John Bush in 2016. If their plan works that will be the end of democratic government in the USA.

Remember in '08, when the old dude tried to cancel his debate with Obama? Expect Willard to come up with some lame excuse why they shouldn't debate. Willard should bring Chump onstage with him during the debate - at least he can provide some entertainment.

Liberals only support free speech when they agree with it ... like flag burning or defecating on a police car.

At least it's their own money.

Unions are using their willfully blind constituents' dues to destroy America.

In most of these cases it is not their own money. It is stockholders money. Do you think one penny of that money belongs to Rove,,, before he got a hold of it? It all came from his boardroom buddies spending investors money. Koch Brouthers with over 23,000 counts of purjury against them. That takes dedicated effort. Freaking Donahue and News Corps have joined a suit going before the Supreme Court that will limit the rights of stock holders so the board can more freely spend their money. And you support that crap.

You saw what the Republican primary debates looked like. Everybody was trying to show who was better at talking points. Every time Romney got away from talking points he would come unraveled and try to makes a bet or do sometime else stupid.

ahahahahahaaha . Romney has so much on Obama's 4yrs of failure he will mop him up in a debate. Obama without a teleprompter in a debate? lol, Romney will have him stumbling and bumbling his words within the first 5min. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if the Obama admin will try to avoid a debate much more so than the Romney campaign. Obama's been running off of lies since day 1. dividing the country more than ever before, paying off his campaign fund donors through loans and grants awarded to failed green energy Companies, selling guns to drug lords who then used the guns to kill U.S Citizens, ordering the assassination of U.S Citizens, brings in big donor GE's Jeff Immelt as "jobs czar" who then ships the 115yr old X-Ray division to Bejing China. I could go on and on Romney has so much on Obama it will be fun to watch Barry squirm in a debate.

Obama In 2007: You Can't Be Against Outside Groups And Then For Them


While running as a candidate, Obama railed against 527's and said that someone can't be against them one day and for them the next.(December 22, 2007)

Earlier this week the Obama campaign announced that the President will embrace the Super PAC Priorities USA that will be backing him.

In a 2007 campaign stop in Iowa then-Senator Obama railed against outside groups and their influence in an election. In this clip he talks about John Edwards and a group supporting him that is "getting around campaign finance laws."

"You can't say yesterday you don't believe in them and today you have three-quarters of a million dollars being spent for you," Obama said.

"You can't just talk the talk," Obama told an audience during the campaign event. "The easiest thing in the world is to talk about change during election time. Everybody talks about change at election time. You've got to look at how do they act when it's not convenient, when it's harder."
