Romney is but a long line of bad candidate choices by the GOP.McClain was a good man,but not presidential material and Palin was a joke. Now Romney, a rich man, will be the puppet for the rich.He knows economics-somebody elses pocket to his..He knows where to hid money to keep from paying taxes, he is the rich mans candidate.If elected he will raise taxes on the middle class and lower them on the rich...that is a fact.
The Dummycrats should have put up a better candidate than that queeer house slave Obama.

Talk about HATE!!
The British beat and tortured Obama's grandfather so badly during the Mau Mau Uprising in Kenya that he had physical limitations for the rest of his life. Thus, Obama, as his father did, has a deep seated hatred for the British, the Israelis, the US and any colonialist country or entity. I'm not here to judge Obama. He considers Israel a Trojan Horse of colonialism in the Middle East. "Israel. Beware Obama."
He wants revenge for his grandfather's brutal injuries and blames colonialism for all of the world's woes. That's why gas is $5 per gallon. We are being punished before he quite possibly destroys us.
More time for change? I don't think so. Obama is a loose cannon.
. I think Romney is a much, much safer bet. Don't you?
Dang. You almo0st convinced me to vote for Obama.

Actually, it was the other way around. Millions of Africans live in Venezuela.

Gee Brian, I didn't realize you were such a cold hearted bastard. No wonder you're a Republican.
p.s. The stimulus DID help, whether you want to admit it or not. Ask ANY economist.
Stimulus worked much better than...all those tax breaks for the Corporate Wealthy, that would stimulate all those JOBS......

5% of the population of Venezuela is of African descent. That comes to about 1.4 million

Remember KKKLinton started much of this "free trade", specifically NAFTA.
That is very true.

Too bad no one has the sense to repeal it and save jobs, since nothing is "free" about it.

Saving $0.50 at Wal-mart is costing millions of jobs, but folks are just happy about small change, and not seeing the big picture..

Don't forget, Obama signed an extension to Bush's tax cuts. It's not a good idea to raise taxes while your economy is in recession.

The world went to h*ll when the country-clubs started letting blacks in to work as caddys.

I'd give anything to have the cold war going again just to have the country-club all white again.

Ask the repubes if it's a good idea, to sign a pledge to not raise taxes, with an outside, unelected lobbyist, Grover Norquist...then hold the country's economy hostage in Washington, refusing to participate in negotiations on solving our people's problems....?

LOL. Who are you kidding? You haven't been to "country club" in your life, let alone belong to one.

Tax cuts are not stimulating the economy at all.

The same CEOs are still outsourcing jobs regardless of their reduction in taxes.

Sometimes a rising tide is just a rising tide, and is not lifting any boats. This trickle down economics has not brought about any increase in jobs for the middle and working classes, who continue to see their wealth decline.

Add to that the smokescreen of "Obama doesn't want welfare recipients to work", that seemingly appeared from thin air, as rebirth of the Willie Horton type of boogeyman campaign message.

Those are separate programs. SocSec qua SocSec has none of the problems of the other programs, which should be separated out permanently. Those issues can be dealt with in other ways.

Have you read or seen 'The Hunger Games'? It's about a government structured to create division and hate.'The Hunger Games' are a metaphor for demagoguery.

We can prevent that kind of rotten politics, that uncivil discourse. Look who's promoting hate, who's accusing their opponents of evil and vote against them.

This is America, we're better than that.

so true. He would. And on the taxpayers dollars too. Just like we had to pay for his daughters spring break to Mexico with jets and about 25 secret service men. All on our tax dollars. Don't seem quiet fair.
