Listen, the poor and middle will be assured of growing poorer now.
For my company we grow as people loose their jobs so I guess the trend will work for us.

Well, at least it's not shucking jive and be-bopping. I'd like a little more class in my president.
Joe Biden is from my state and he has always been the biggest A-hole anyone ever met.
Just campaigning this year he LIED to the military about his first wife and daughter being killed by a 'drunk driver.' LIE Tragically his wife ran a red light. Mention his name here and you get a sneer.
Romney was conducting a missionary tour during Viet Nam. Big deal.
Obama's gonna finish off killing this country and go to North Africa. Meanwhile you'll be swimming back to Cuba becasue we will have no jobs and no more money for entitlements. It will be bleak.
I know Miami well. We lived in Florida every winter. The change since I was a little girl is astounding. And not for the better.

You friggin idiot. You're asking that now? And you're from Pittsbugh, located near coal country?

Obama has a war on coal and, by regulations, is shutting down every mine in the country. He openly has made that his goal.

patdollard.com/2012/10/miners-fight-back-agai...

Romney announced his plan at his acceptance speech back in June. It's exciting, totally workable and now it will never happen. And he repeated it over and over.

Make North America energy independent through coal, oil, gas, nuculear and renewables. That's five new oil refineries we'd need right there and probably 8 to 10 million well paying jobs.

Lower middle class income tax:

3 employees paying $10. tax =$30.00
5 employees paying $ 8. tax =$40.00

Champion small business (less than 250 employees) who are the largest job creators by lowering their tax rate and rolling back some ridiculous regulations that keep companies from hiring and moving forward. A $13 million construction job in Texas was shut down because of a spider. How many men do you think got sent home?

New trade agreements with Latin and South America and get tough on China when they cheat and manipulate their currency.

Train and educate for the jobs of the future.

Repeal Obamacare and replace it with a system that is better working and better for the middle class.

Spend NOTHING that we have to borrow for.

Obama's plan: Hire more teachers and tax the rich who already pay 85% of the tax collected.

And keep running the most corrupt administration in history.

Please tell me you didn't vote.

Coal is filthy and ruining the earth. Mitt Romney paid 14% on his money if he even paid that..
You are just another brainwashed racist.. When you get your extra tax return money, send it back to the IRS you are un-American and filled with hate like the rest of the GOP. We Dems wish you would all leave the country you hate sooooo much!!! And yes, I voted and WON!!!! LMFAO How'd that election work out for Romney/Ryan? ahahahahah

You are uninformed. Coal companies have had 'scrubbers' for years. Look up 'clean coal.'

FACT: The US coal reserves contain TWELVE TIMES as much energy as all of the oil in Saudi Arabia. Why shut it down, put millions out of work and destroy a way of life.

Obama paid less and made less in charitable contributions than Romney.

I'm a racist? I'm a realist. Obama would never have won the fisrt time if he wasn't black. Doesn't make him a nice person or smart.

Brainwashed? Me? No way. I understand government and business and was raised to be independent and make up my own mind.

I don't hate the country. I hate Obama and his policies and lies and disrespect for all of us, starting with the military.

If you had any intelligence to go along with that education you'd see that Obama, the murdering liar, is taking us right off a fiscal cliff, is laughed at by our enemies and not liked by out allies.
Mitt Romney is the smartest, most ethical guy in the room and the country lost a huge opportunity.
Yeah, Obama ran such a clean campaign. It was all attack, all lies about Romney because Obama HAS NO RECORD EXCEPT A BAD ONE AS COMMUNITY ORGANIZER. A community that was not good enough for he and Michelle to live in. MSNBC is a hateful run off of NBC.
Excellent & very well said. I agree with you a 100%.

No, education does not equal intelligence or IQ.

My, lots of exclamation points. Are you getting frustrated.

I told you spelling is not my long suit. Live with it. By the way, you butchered that last sentence. Missed a comma after 'but', another two before and after 'obviously' and it's just poorly worded in general.

Go find someone to play with.

Oh, unlike you and people like you who count on a tax refund, as it's the only 'savings' they ever do in their life, I don't get one. I have additional income apart from my salary.

Loser.

Ok since smarts are an obvious alien to you, I will break your post down for you... Clean coal is a myth. No such thing. Secondly, charitable contributions are optional to everyone. Thirdly, he won both times not because he's black, because he's smart and LIKEABLE.. Even the GOP admit that they have to retool their ideas.. He won the Latino vote the Asian vote the African American vote and apparently most of the senior citizen vote since he won Fla and Pa.. Sorry you're just wrong

In 16 counties in Ohio Obama had more votes than Romney. In the remainder of the counties, he didn't.

Wow! No one is asking you to pay for their abortions or birth control. Republicans need to stay out of women's decisions, period. If you represent the GOP, no wonder your candidate isn't president.
And you're right, not only do I have control over my own body, but I certainly had control over my vote. Have a nice day, loser!

Atleast some good came out of this, The South has a new confederate flag; A Romney/Ryan sign. Wave them with pride!!! Plenty of flags and potential citizens but no country for them to raise them in. See you guys in another 150 years.

Perhaps, you all can chip in and build Romney/Ryan a White House replica for him to govern you guys from. America will probably allow their insurgents ( street gangs ) and drug dealers to keep you under wraps.

44 years of preparation,$50 billion, creation of the Tea Party, gathered the pensions of those whom sent his Mormon ancestors to Utah to fund his pursuit and reaccumulated those hard earned dollars for his wealthy buddies. Then promised him that he was just as good running for president as he was at enforcing legalized slave trading. Created Super Pacs, even Grover Norquist for Ronnie Reagan and kept asking the Republican Party to let him run.

Finally, they brushed him off and said, " Go save the Winter Olympics, dumbass, since you want to do it for free." That free crap is as anti-republican as anti-republican can get. Who in the hell campaigns for the Presidency for 44 years? Willard Mutt Romney. He learned everything he could about how to resolve the conflict with Russia. He really believed that no one else could fix it, before he was elected.

In the history of these United States of America, no one has ever been given the White House that had an ambition to pursue it or utilize wealth to buy it.

Gen Betray US (patraeus) and his biographer weren't having a fling, a republican supporting CIA agent allowed four Americans to die. Gen. Powell endorsement of Obama should clue you into whom will be the next Director of the CIA.

The only reason Romney was allowed to commit this assault against America was to get that $25 billion that he had offshore. The Supreme Court didn't deregulate campaign funding transparency with a legitimate reason in tow. Romney was the target.

Did anyone notice that the Tea Party's funding disappeared as soon as Romney became the presumptive nominee? UCC. Leaving hundreds of Tea Bag candidates to hang. What happened to Sarah Palin? Mitt knew she was a threat, gave her a bus tour and finally, defunded and silenced her.

I give Mitt a lot of respect for his plan to complete John Smith's ( co-founder of Mormonism) objective to take the White House. Yep, Mitt, just like John Smith handed down his orders, The Christian Coalition handed down a few too.
