Yet Romney can barely manage to keep up a close tie with Obama in the polls... and in fact Obama is just slightly ahead of him:

Huffington post is not a reliable news source. Topix will not allow me to post stories from there because of their radical left wing bias.
Keep reading that stuff because obviously that is what our out of touch President is doing.

The unemployment rate is awful, this is unacceptable. We need someone who understands economics in the White House, someone who understand how US businesses work. Someone who has ran businesses successfully, someone who has ran a State successfully. Romney is that person.

America does not need a President with "community organizer" as his experience, never ran anything much less successfully.
Obama is not even worthy to be called an experiment in mediocrite, he is a complete failure as President.
The only people who still support him are those who put their political party above the good of the nation.

Seems like we are in a world of sh1t economically, these last 4 years have almost bankrupted me.
Obama has gotta go, give Romney a shot at getting us out.

Or go for the third choice we have in 2012, Gary Johnson.
