Well, God, I guess you failed to inform people that YOU have set a deadline for replies.
You forgot to tell us what that person was doing for those two days and how you judged that meant what you said it did. I would’ve assumed that person might have a life, and places to go, people to see, and isn’t dependent on the internet for human contact.
When I ignored your neurotic rants against others, and your moronic replies to my posts, did you assume I was somehow outwitted? Ha! No, just the opposite. I decided that you’re just too dumb to learn. You are always too stupid to figure out what's said, aren't you?
You don't want truth or information, you want to rant. That's a sign that you need help.
Well, unfortunately for you, I don't give a rat's azz.

The majority of the Republican Party are not extremists, nor are the majority of the Democrats. Both the "Left wing" and the "Right wing" sects are minorities within the parties. Examples of extremists are the "Religious Right", and "Yellow Dog Democrats". Neither appeals to me. I consider myself to be fiscally conservative, but socially I'm a little more moderate. I will never vote for party over individual, but I will heavily scrutinize any and all incumbents, carefully evaluating their past performance. This is where I give Obama a failing grade.
And yes, if you want a voice, you need to belong to a party. Otherwise, the primaries are moot.
You seem too preoccupied with damning the Republican Party. It's too easy to lose perspective at the polls when they are approached with such a narrow perspective.
If you think that Romney, who makes his living bankrupting and looting companies, is your man, then vote for him by all means.

I am also fiscally conservative and socially more moderate. What a surprise!

Those who are devoted to evil are blind to the difference between right and wrong.
You just make it up as you go along, eh? Perhaps you would be so kind as to point out specifically where I lied? Then point out the specific evil I am supposedly devoted to?

I agree with you on the "mentally ill" statement.

Gee. I believe I pointed out to "rollin" that this is an open forum, and that he doesn't get to decide who posts what. How is it that gives me a "god complex", and it doesn't give YOU one? Hmmm? I grew up a long time ago. You should give it a try.

How about a list of those companies he has bankrupted and looted? I have yet to find any, versus the many companies he has helped to save and to grow.

And if you do succeed in finding these companies, how does that compare to "bankrupting and looting" our entire country?

No, one does not have to "belong" to a particular party to "have a voice."
The present Republican motto: Return to the Past!
Something else I don't understand: How could Reagan AND Bush43 "cure" you? They were 20 years apart. Obviously, Reagan couldn't have "cured" you, if the "cure" required the influence of Bush as well.

Here's one: GST Steel. Kansas City. Bankrupted by Bain Capital (read: Romney). Took out loans to buy GST Steel. Looted the accounts. Kept most of that money when GST Steel went into bankruptcy. Laid off 750 employees, and attempted to loot their employment funds.

Here's the slide show:

2. Google "GST Steel" for other links!

How about YOU providing that list of "the many companies [Romney] has helped to save and to grow?_8-)_Note that companies in China do not count in your assigned task!

One? Just one? And GST at that? Seriously? This piece opens with (and features) Joe Soptic, who was caught in a lie stating his wife died without insurance because of Bain Capital. Romney left Bain Capital in 1999, and Joe Soptic lost his job two years later (shortly before the bankruptcy). In 2003, Joe Soptic's wife leaves her job (and her insurance). In 2006 she went to the hospital for pneumonia, where cancer was discovered, and she died. In this interview, Joe Soptic claims 5500 employees, when in fact, GST had just over 4500 employees at their peak in 1970, ten years before he claimed to have begun working there. By the late 80's they were down to 1000 employees. In 1997, a ten-week strike resulted in about $22 million in lost revenue. In 1998 (a year AFTER Romney left Bain), a turn-around expert was hired out of Delaware (City Steel). Your whole "slide show" is nothing more than union propaganda. "Facts" have little to do with the presentation. GST is no exception to the demise of the steel industry nationwide. Bethlehem Steel was bought and sold many times... all for naught.

Bain has helped Staples, Sports Authority, Dominos, Experian, Sealy, Steel Dynamics, Duane Reade Drug Stores, Goody's, Icon Health and Fitness, and Brookstone (just to name 10).

Bright Horizons is Michelle Obama's favorite, and she has openly endorsed them.

For sure, Bain Capital has had some failures. That's reality. There is risk in every venture, but if you throw it all on a scale, I believe we are better of WITH venture capitalists than WITHOUT.

Well, you convinced ME! You are full of it!_8-)

(Interesting to me that you concentrate on Joe Soptic, when there were 749 others who lost their jobs at GST Steel.)

And ... speaking of "naught" ... your boy Romney lost ... so your vote counted for "naught."

First of all, true "venture capitalists" deny that Bain (read: Romney) was a "venture capitalist" endeavor.

Listen to this about Romney: " ... some of his fellow Republican presidential hopefuls accuse him of being part of a 'destruction' side of capitalism’s 'creative destruction.'"

“Bain, at times, engaged in behavior where they looted a company,” former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said at a debate Sunday. Texas Gov. Rick Perry followed that up by likening private equity firms to “vultures” that feast on companies, collecting profits for themselves while issuing pink slips to workers....

I'm "full of it"? Idle statement with no substance.

Soptic was the poster child of the presentation. Soptic is a documented liar, therefore the presentation lacks credibility.

The other 749 at GST lost their jobs, too. So did many more others who worked at other steel mills. The common denominator is unions, not Bain Capital. Unions destroyed the U.S. steel industry. Bain Capital saved or created jobs for over 300,000 people, in the companies I listed. Heck, there are 170,000 working for Dominos alone!

Romney didn't lose. The United States lost. Wait and see.

Oh, I forgot to mention... nay, repeat:
Romney left Bain Capital two years BEFORE GST filed for bankruptcy. Your timeline holds no water for blaming Romney.
