President Obama will have 4 more years to lead America.
The problem is he is leading us right into the crapper.If he is re-elected,there will be more Americans dependent on government handouts.The number will be greater than 47%.This dependency is what Obama wants for America.The more we become dependent on Government handouts,the greater the chance that our country will become a one party system of complete Democratic control.We will no longer have any checks and balances in our form of Government.Everyone will be so dependent on Government handouts that we will be inclined to vote Democratic.This will only last until we run out of other peoples money.It won't be long before we become another Greece.I say,NOBAMA in 2012!

See, this is the problem with progressives, they just are so darn stupid. Understand this, the 47% PAY NO FEDERAL INCOME TAX. Got that? So, if you actually are part of the 47%, you are NOT paying any federal payroll taxes at all, they may be deducted from each check, but you get back every cent at tax time. That's the group of people that have no interest in anyone else getting a tax cut. They NEED lots of OTHER people paying taxes so they don't have to. Got it now?
But YOU are part of the 47% and admitted you are retired and don't pay any taxes. You mooch off the taxpayer (specifically your husband). Shouldn't you get a job? Or are you stupider than than the progressives that you claim are "so darn stupid"?

Actually...if you vote for Mormon Rich Money, more Americans will fall into the 47% for two reasons. 1) Mormon Rich Money will give more tax cuts....therefore MORE people will pay less taxes and fall into the no tax paying category. 2) Wealth will be redistributed from the working middle class to the rich 0.5% so more people from the 1% will fall out of that category into the middle class and more people from the middle class will fall into the poor class. It's just arithmetic.

The only solution was Ron Paul and you Republican RINOs blew it big time.

Mormon Rich Money is only saying out loud what the Republican RINOs think:

That the poor and the working middle class need to stop playing the VICTIMS and need to pay MORE in taxes.

Whereas the real VICTIMS are the rich. Since they are obviously struggling during these tough economic times. And therefore need to pay LESS taxes.

Well....I guess I know which party I will be voting for in November.

I'm sure the millions of unemployed Americans appreciate what Mormon Rich Money and the GOP think of them: that they feel like they're victims who want to depend on government.

If there was any doubt that the Mormon Rich Money and the GOP are only out to help the 1% rich get richer, that doubt is gone.

By November here is what the American people will remember after the G-roup O-f P-olitical T-erroristic E-uropean A-merican birthers took over the house.

1) They shifted focus from jobs and the economy to defending DOMA, looking for birth certificates, and whining about teleprompters.

2) They almost pushed us into a government shutdown.

3) They pushed us into a credit downgrade.

4) They fought to kill medicare and medicaid.

5) They held our payroll tax cuts hostage for a pipeline.

6) The Republican Death Panel are fighting hard to take away healthcare for the working middle class.

8) They believe the unemployed feel like they're victims who want to depend on government.

7) But they sure fought vehemently for those top 1% wealthy people.

All at the expense of the economy and the middle and working class. The people who will be most hurt by GOPTEA obstructionism are the working middle class. The rich 1% would hardly notice a dent. Which is why Rich Money and Boehnor could care less.

It's time to fire Speaker Downgrade Boehner and the Republican RINO he rode in on!

You know that the reality of the dire situation for these silly right-wing idiots is beginning to sink in when this tea-bagging fool doesn’t bring up his obsession with Vera Baker; instead he tries to convince himself (as he solicit support from others) that all is well because Scott Walker won his recall… exactly as the polls consistently showed he would.
Romney is a disaster and his campaign is a joke… maybe that 48, 49, 4rrr… bunch of percent will support him in spite of Romney not caring about him… LOL!

LOL. It's not my fault Mormon Rich Money thinks you are a victim dependent on government and will vote for President Obama. Or will you be voting for Mormon Rich Money instead? If that is the case, then he doesn't really fully understand you who make up the 47%. But is this really what you think of yourself?:

Why are people so surprised about Romney on tape? He said months ago that people are corporations. He had that same mind set when he was Governor for his one term in Mass and took the State to 47th place. This country is built of living, breathing human beings.

Sometimes real humans might need unemployment, or food stamps, or subsidized housing. They may need to put their parents in a nursing home.
Their disabled child may need help with medical expenses and homeless veterans taken off the streets. If a flood takes out someone’s home and business and all that they own, they need the help of FEMA.

But I think his tax returns should be demanded. He refuses to hand them over for some reason and it would be nice to know if he was a tax cheat sooner than later? He submitted ONE year and a "summary" of the next year. WHAT is he hiding?

For all your claims of 'disaster','joke' and 'desperate' Romney this & that, can you explain why he and Obama are still running neck-and-neck in the polls?

And what about those polls that over-sample Democrats? Why does Obama have only a couple points lead when they spot him twice that much?

I'm not surprised by his comments. I am surprised with how far the party has come to embrace corporate greed. What happened to the Republican Party that was for the people? That helped the fellow man to succeed and achieve? Instead this new party has written off half of Americans as lazy freeloaders.

Also, I don't think Mormon Rich Money is a tax cheat. But his tax returns will reveal:

1) What he did with his tax savings - that he shipped them overseas instead of reinvesting it here at home to create jobs. In other words, the "job creator" was derelict in his duties to the American people, and

2) He took advantage of many government entitlement/welfare program deductions such as the charitable contribution deduction, mortgage interest deduction, etc. to reduce his taxes. Perfectly legal, but purely hypocritical considering his recent statement regarding the 1%.
