Yes Republicans are for high excess executive profit rather than health care for people. Republican Party of the wealthy executive elite. High executive pay and poor quality are Republican values.

Oklahoma got rid of a long term worthless Republican member of congress John Sullivan. I voted against him and now will vote for the democrat in election.
We know that, it's that ring in your nose Soros keeps pulling. It must hurt.

Jim Bridenstine will hand the democrat's ass to you. But the dems will get one vote, yours. LMAO

Republicans will still be favored to hold Sullivan’s heavily conservative district, http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-fix/p...

So wonderful to watch the Macy's 4th Fireworks and hear America's inspiring anthems. It was a great reminder that we MUST elect Gov Romney to SAVE our Country from being reduced to nothing more than Pelosi Nation.

It all comes down to the single question: "Are we better off now than we were four years ago?" Those who would vote for Obama feel that they are, apparently, although news from the employment front is dismal and the nation's economy seems to be limping along on its last legs. The belief that Obamacare will modernize the health care system would also be an incentive for those who don't mind paying the taxes or penalties or whatever the individual mandate is now called.

We have highly educated young people walking the streets looking for work of any kind or who are underemployed in minimum wage jobs. In my area, the Mayor announced last week that the police, firemen, DPW and office personnel will now be earning federal minimum wage since the city cannot afford to pay them. The unions of course, were in court this morning since it is a violation of their contracts.

Interestingly, Joe Biden used the 4th of a July to come here on a good will stop to remind the locals that he is running for VP and that he once lived here in his childhood. The local philharmonic gave an outdoor concert at the court house and there were fireworks galore. Local cops were paid overtime for security wherever he traveled. Since the city is broke, a number of reporters asked the mayor how the city could afford this. He said that he was sending the bill to the Obama-Biden campaign.

And they will pay it, of course, when pigs fly.

In our little corner of the world, Obama is not a popular figure. Unfortunately, however we vote will be cancelled out by the big cities of Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. With Romney as the alternative, many will not vote. There was a heated argument yesterday at our house over whether it is worth voting since the Republican candidate-to-be passed the prototype for Obamacare when he was governor. The young people do not intend to vote because they believe Romney will just take us from the frying pan into the fire. My husband claimed that not voting is a support for the system and plans on holding his nose and voting for Romney.

It is ccertainly a dilemma. If people do come out, it will be because it is their civic duty, not because they have any great fondness for either candidate.

Classic crony capitalism: privatize the gain, socialize the risk. When Romney drove GST Steel into bankruptcy, he and his partners made $12 million in profit and another $4.5 million in consulting fees. But Romney stuck the taxpayers with a $44 million tab for the company’s underfunded pensions.

It's the economy.
1. Unemployment - 8+%
2. decreased home values; many foreclosures
3. more money going out instead of coming in
4. savings, if you have any, are being depleted
5. taxation increases
6. lousy interest rates on any savings you may have
7. President's family extravagant vacations at taxpayer expense
8. stagnant economy
9. involvement in more Middle East countries
10.a non transparent President, who fails to hold press conferences
If you want to REclaim America, you must vote to undo what Obama has done-keep the House, vote for republican senators and make Obama a one term president
and this is JUST to REbalance this country.
Mitt Romney WILL work with all elected officials.
President Obama has NOT demonstrated the ability to work across the aisle. He is NOT a unifier.
Ask the public:
*Is the USA united?
*Has President Obama unified the USA?
The Unifier Wants His Cut.

Classic socialist/Union backroom deal: Buy off the Unions,taxpayers pay the bill. Obama and his liberal cronies spent $700 BILLION plus on the "stimulus",the unions/green energy obama supporters got paid off and Obama stuck taxpayers wuth the bill. Romney and Bain Capital's "profits" PALE in comparison to the swindle legislated by Obama and his liberal cronies.

Some circles are starting to say that Carter was a better President than Obama is NOW..... WOW!!!

Just because Romney is so far ahead of Obama in a liberal poll does not mean we can become complacent, and stay home election day. We must all vote to overcome the great numbers of Democrat dead voters, and multi voters. The poll does indicate that Americans are ready to fight back o save the country from Socialism. How many times the Democrats have tried to push that leftist bull shit, and we fought back, and won. This is a great country, and she will prevail.

Yes, a landslide would give quite a bit of political capital, but we still have to keep the republican estabilishment in check as well as the liberals.
