Fruit farmers near Traverse City, Mich., the Sends are waiting - like farmers across the country - on a new farm bill, a massive piece of legislation that in one section gives cash assistance for a cherry crop lost because of last spring's erratic weather.

"I'm a Republican, I've endorsed Mitt Romney and I support him. I intend to vote for him on Tuesday," Christie said. "But the fact of the matter is that if the President of the United States comes here and he is willing to help my people, and he does it, then I'm going to say nice things about him because he's earned it."

His economic policies are straight out of Fantasyland. When all of his tax cut promises are added up and weighed against the tax loopholes he vows to close, the deficits will likely get even worse than Obama's. Add to that the trillions above and beyond the Pentagon's requests. Romney seems to be even more reckless than Dubya if that is possible and is making promises not unlike Obama made in 2008 which could be equally overoptimistic. If Willard gets elected, I hope he succeeds, but I really doubt it.

Personally, I wouldn't vote for either Obama or Romney. One is an admitted liberal while the other is a closet liberal.

I won't vote for either as well. One is an admitted conservative, while the other is a closet conservative. Neither has a liberal bone in their entire body. They don't even make liberal promises, instead only making far right conservative promises. They both promise more war, a conservative principal. They both promise more help for corporations to take money away from the middle class, a conservative principal.

Now you see the credit that has ran unchecked for so long.
They were "funded" when the times were good.
Promises were made when times were good.
Because people bought their securities and bonds that were good at the time they were offered.
I bet the politicians are still getting their pensions, no problem.
Exactly. The politicians love this stuff about unions in government jobs because those union contracts for big pensions because creating new taxes and raising current taxes makes sure that the politicians get their big pensions too. You are right that the big pension promises were made when times were good. Same thing with adding more and more welfare programs. It was the 80 million baby boomers working and being the first big generation to attend college so that they were making good money and paying a lot of taxes, so yes, back then the politicians could afford to come up with new welfare programs and they could make big pension promises to government workers. Now those baby boomers are old and retiring at the rate of 10,000 every day, and the younger generation is smaller and not as highly educated, so today you have these big welfare programs and big pension promises and the big entitlement promises based on a formula of 80 million educated workers paying for all of it, and the workers are not there to pay for it. It's an old model where the World War II generation was smaller than the baby boomers, so the baby boomers could carry the WWII folks' pensions and entitlements, and also, the WWII people got much smaller goverment pensions. Today we have entitlements set up for a model of 1950, but it's almost 2013, and that model is unsustainable given the new demographics. And, at the same time, the government pensions today are 3 times higher than what the WWII folks got. So it's a real mess.

OH WOW………ANOTHER APPOLOGY TOUR……..Politico now is saying if Obama loses it’s because the youth vote was ignored………it wasn’t ignored, they woke up to the lies Obama had told them in 08. Libs are setting the stage for failure and riots……….If you go out tonight, go packing.
