VOTER...you have no idea what CORE Values mean.

It's a shame that you can not THINK for yourself.

Of course Romney has core values. Based on his behavior he obviously values wealth, avoidance of risk, his own personal ambition, his self-interests and the interests of people like himself, maintaining the status of white males at the expense of everyone else, and the advancement of his own political career.

What he has NOT demonstrated is that he has any core POLITICAL values. He has been on both sides of virtually every political issue and will say anything to ingratiate himself to whatever political constituency he's speaking to.

Politically, the only constant in Romney's career is his own political advancement. He will say or do anything to serve that core value, including avoiding taking any political positions that might be inconvenient or hinder the advancement of his political career.

Unfortunately for Romney, his efforts to advance his career by pandering to every interest group out there, has revealed that he simply does not have the kind of character that patriotic Americans want in their President.

I will vote for him but it reminds me of when the Democrats were backing John Kerry; who is also very rich, who also had changed his views on topics (we all do). Also he shouldn't be ashamed of his wealth. He worked hard for it so he should enjoy it. He is no different than any Senator, Congressman or President. They are all rich but they all didn't work as equally as hard.

Oh no! Dan the man is afraid of Romney! Get used to it, Romney is in come Nov.6,2012.

Obama is the incumbent and barely beating Romney. In fact Romney is starting to take the lead in several polls.

Obama has lost the independents, the gap on women is now starting to close with Romney, this is just a little of the bad news for Obama.

What's wrong with being wealthy? That's the American dream. There are plenty of wealthy democrats.

Cheapo Biden only donated 300 dollars to charity. Romney donated 15% of his income, Cheapo Obama donated only 1% of his. If I were you Dan the man I'd shut up, you're not helping Obama. He's cheap, spends more time on the golf course, racks the national debt up more then ALL presidents combined, made a mess out of the economy.

I'll vote for him again in Nov as will millions and millions of others will!

Yeah, except he's not a pathological liar and you know it.

At some point you wingnuts are going to have to face reality. If you don't you will certainly become a permanent minority party. Hopefully Romney's annihilation in November will snap you out of your irrational, myth-based world.

But I doubt it.

Obama has kept every campaign promise he has had the ability to keep. He continues to work on those where he's been stymied by historical obstructionism from the right.

Beyond the typical spin that all politicians do, Obama is not a liar by any rational definition of the word.

But Romney is. He lies easily and frequently. He says blatantly factually untrue things, and after he's been corrected he continues to tell those lies. This fact has been thoroughly documented. If you don't know about it, it's because you're choosing to be ignorant and uninformed.

I think you are being a bit dramatic when you say he has been stymied by historical obstructionism. Is it just historical because it is Obama? Has there never been obstructionism against any other president before? I think you are over stating yourself on this one. He had two years of democratic control in which to get as much done as he possibly could.
As for lying, sorry to tell you, Obama has lied, all politicians do. All you have to do is google "lies told by Obama" and you will be able to read all kinds of lies told by the President. Here's a link to start with: http://obamalies.net/list-of-lies .

Okay - historic LEVELS of obstructionism.

The GOP has abused the filibuster at levels never before seen in history. This is objective, historical fact. Virtually every piece of legislation in the US Senate today has to pass with 60 votes. That is unheard of in US history.

Like all politicians, Obama spins the facts to his political advantage. But his spin is nothing at all like the regular blatant lies Romney tells. There is simply no comparison.

And I've seen those sites. They are ridiculous partisan smear-jobs, as dishonest as they claim Obama to be.

Of course they are partisan sites. Do you really think his own base would expose the lies? Like there aren't ridiculous partisan smear job sites exposing Romneys lies. Actually, it is up to the individual to do their own research into the lies and figure out whether it is just, as you say "spinning the facts to his political advantage", or downright lies. I'm sure you would find both are guilty of each. And, I don't consider someone changing their minds on an issue to be lying. There are people who can change their minds on positions that they once stood firmly on because someone has made them see the error of their ways.

So Romney's "changed his mind" on every single issue he's ever had an opinion about?

Because there isn't any political position he's ever taken that he hasn't flip-flopped on.

Romney changes his mind depending on which group he's pandering to today. The only conviction he has is that he must become President.

BTW - the site you linked to is packed with lies. They aren't exposing anything but their own mendacity and desperation. And yours, for linking to them.

See, that's the difference. The sites claiming to list Obama's lies are dishonest smear sites. The sites listing Romney's lies have documented, objective facts and history to support what they say.
