What's disturbing is the number of "useful idiots" who seem so willing to fall into that category.

Romney - Paul! America's comeback team!

The Kenyan's team? America's welfare moochers, slackers, union thugs, fluker sluts, illegal aliens, gay rights bullies, atheist haters and commie occupier scum.

America says ENOUGH!

On the Issues:

Eventually Clinton came around to the idea of cutting the capital gains tax. The tax was cut and revenue poured in! Gingrich wanted to cut spending even more. Even though the rates were lower, the economic growth brought in hundreds of billions extra each year. The proportion of taxes paid by the richest 1% rose from 37% in 2000 to 40% in 2006, even though their tax rate had been cut! 8 years to eradicate, was gone in less than 2 years.

That's the glory of...that's the story of capitalism. If the big wheels don't turn, the cogs don't turn either.

So much for the referendum
By Steve Benen - Sat Aug 11, 2012 8:31 AM EDT
As of this morning, Romney's strategy has been thrown out the window. Paul Ryan wrote a right-wing budget plan, which redistributes wealth from the bottom up, and which guarantees voters will be presented with a very clear choice in the fall, not a referendum.
Indeed, it's not unreasonable to think the entire election dynamic will be turned on its ear -- voters will be asked to vote, not on Obama, but on the far-right Romney-Ryan vision.
And what is the vision crafted by a man who credits Ayn Rand for his involvement in politics? It's one in which Medicare would be replaced with a voucher scheme; Social Security would be privatized; taxes would be cut even more for the very wealthy; and Washington would "take food from poor children, make it harder for low-income students to get a college degree, and squeeze funding for research, education, and infrastructure."
What's more, the Ryan plan does not reduce the debt, either.
This has always been less of a budget plan and more of a right-wing fantasy. As of this morning, Romney not only endorses this right-wing vision, he owns it -- and in the process, he's presented the electorate with a dramatic choice, not a referendum.
LOL! I'm so glad he picked Herman Munster!! Oh yes! Send him to Florida to sell his voucher plan!

Then he has convictions!

Please post proof of your ASSertions unless you are being a whiny, dishonest liberal and just say negative things about people for no good reason.

Can't be too over the top when it comes to deceiptful and unconscienable tactics and losing their power, now can they?
Scare tactics? Just look at Ryans proposals for the elderly. Anyway, I am delighted he chose Ryan.
4 more years! Thanks Mitt.

First of all, Romney did not pick Joe Biden; Obama did. Secondly, neither one will be visiting Florida with a liquor voucher plan for you, you confused vile beast drunk.

Can't get former President Republican George W Bush to attend.

Obama has released his tax returns for every year dating back to 2000.
