The more Willard runs his mouth, the bigger the hole he keeps digging for himself. That 47% figure he likes to quote as not paying taxes includes the elderly, soldiers, people whose incomes are too low for them to pay federal income taxes, and the disabled. A sizeable number of them are white Republicans whose votes he is supposed to be courting. Wifey hasn't been much help, if any. Someone should have told her that if they can't take the heat, they need to get out of the kitchen.

No, he doesn't. However, since he has alienated Hispanics and a sizeable number of whites, he needs all th white support he can get, and I don't see that happening.

Vote early and vote often. I have a lot billionaires and millionaires that have put a lot of money behind me. I want to give them a return on investment.
My administration will work hard on behalf of the investment class. You will be our priority. We will ignore the needs of the rest of the country.
Our Mission Statement is simply this:
From the many (the 99%) to the few (the 1%).
It's about time the 1% had solid representation in American politics. We will gladly offer the best republic money can buy.
Romney never said this so it had to be said by OBAMA. I do believe Obama when he makes statements like this. Obama hid his millions until now - he led everyone to think he was a struggling school student and that was a LIE, he did not disclose he was a millionaire but its out now. Obama must be paying off the TV stations to keep all of failures from being broadcast.

Yes, his ancestors did and he will join them in hell! If they try again, they'll lose again! The south has never risen again because they can't get "free labor!" The south wasn't built on white backs, it was built on BLACK BACKS! He can take his delusions of grander straight to hell with him!

What's laughable is the ignorance of these anti-black racists who insist on believing that the only people who don't like Willard are blacks, while ignoring the very real evidence that there are plenty of whites who don't either, including some Republicans. Apparently, they either haven't been paying attention or have simply been seeing only what they WANT to see. Hispanics are a sizeable voting bloc and he doesn't fare much better with them than he does with black folks. His campaign is imploding due to so many self-inflicted wounds that his tendency to speak before thinking has caused him. He has exposed himself as an ambitious, ruthless man who has a very shaky moral compass when it comes to politics. Apparently, it's lost on them that the groups Willard has insulted include a significant number of whites. It's also apparent that they think the horrible policies proposed by Romney and Ryan will only affect Democrats and are gleeful about it. There are also Republicans in the "47%" and many of them reside in the very Republican-run states that are leading in such categories as low percentages in high school graduation, public assistance recipients, health care coverage, and high percentages of teen pregnancy, among other unflattering distinctions.

You are correct. Now speaking of hell, the suicide rate among those racist morons will go up 100% when the Mr. Obama wins re-election. When Patriot and others like him get to hell, they can ask their cowardly klancestors about why they lost the Great Civil War. Now as for Romney, in losing to Mr. Obama, his career as a serious politician is over. Matter of fact, one of his boys, Christie addressed the RNC as a 2016 candidate instead of speaking for Romney. Lol!!!

You are right. The crap that comes out of Fox News is good for nothing but lining for the bottom of animal cages. Like their boy Romney, they were quick to pass judgement on the president before knowing the facts. Come to think of it, that IS business as usual at that propaganda factory.

The Republicans have no one to blame but themselves for allowing lying Romney to represent them. The fact that a few of his GOP opponents kept overtaking him in the primaries have nothing to do with the candidates themselves. It had a lot to do with who Romney is. One has to be delusionally out of touch to think the likes of Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, and that "Uncle Tom" Herman Cain,(more on him later), had a better chance than Romney in the general election. Furthermore, had the morons of the Republican Party nominated a Ron Paul or Jon Huntsman, they would have been better off. But then again, what disqualified those two was the fact that they spoke on issues and not birther and racist rhetoric like the rest of the field. Mr. Paul and Mr. Huntsman elected to stay above the fray. "Uncle Tom" Herman Cain said a funny the other day. He said that if he was the nominee, the race would be a lot closer than it is now. Let me see, he calls Blacks brainwashed and in a way call us liars when he said there is no racism in his party. He has also said some harsh thing about Hispanics. Add the fact that a lot of Whites on both sides are smart enough not to take him seriously and the general election is over before the conventions. Come to think of it, Mr. Cain did not say a funny as I stated earlier, he told an outright lie.
Can you answer this for me? Is it true that Jimmie "JJ" Walker and Anne Coulter are dating?

If "Uncle Tom" Herman Cain was running, he would have less Black votes than lying Romney. Too bad we will never get that chance for a big laugh. The Republiklan Party will not nominate a Black or woman to run for president. They talk about how they love Condoleeza Rice but in the end, they would not do it. At least she is smart for not getting mixed up in what the Republiklans have become.

My parrot would love to shit on Fox. Good thing they don't print that garbage. Don't you just love Palin still talking shit about the liberal media which does not exist. Intelligent people just tune the corporate media BS out along with fright-wing lunatic snivel-talk radio.

I read somewhere that they were dating, and they are two misfits who deserve each other. Speaking of deserving, many Republicans may not like or want Willard as their standard bearer, but he is the one they deserve. After decades of appealing to fear, hatred, and ignorance in order to win at any cost, they are reaping what they have sown in the form of the exceptionally clueless, ignorant, arrogant, and out-of-touch Willard Mitt Romney. The entire group of GOP contenders for the nomination, barring one or two, was a bunch of sad sacks, including Cain who I see is just as delusional as ever. If he couldn't even deliver the black vote for them, what on earth would make him think he could attract many votes outside the black populace? He was just a token that was never going to get the nomination, and I still suspect it was someone in the GOP camp that derailed his campaign.

The fact that you conflate the president's name with that of Osama Bin Laden says all that needs to be said about you, and nothing about the president himself. Besides, neither you nor anyone else is going to persuade me or any other African-American to prove we're not "racist" by voting for such an inept, out-of-touch candidate as Willard Romney. We dealt with the same kind of silliness back in 2008, when we decided to vote for him against John McCain, especially after he selected the dimbulb known as Sarah Palin for his running mate. Calling us racists for planning to vote for the president over him is hilarious, considering that many whites, including some Republicans, don't like him either.
