<quoted text>Mitt managed to lose a vote to Obama last night. I spoke with a friend who told me that she had planned to go ahead and vote for Mitt Romney, somewhat reluctantly, but that was primarily because Mitt was going to overturn Obama's temporary amnesty (she reads "Dream Act"), but once he said he wouldn't do that, she no longer had any reason whatsoever to vote for him. LOL
Take that, Flip-Flop Mitt!
She must have caught his spiel addressed to the Hispanic constituents as he was wearing a brown mask.
What the guy doesn't understand is that Hispanics prefer someone who stands behind his own convictions, popular or not.
He insults our intelligence every time he flip flops.

AARP objects to Obama invoking group's support during debate
Published October 04, 2012
FoxNews.com
The AARP, which put itself in the middle of the health care debate by endorsing ObamaCare, now is telling President Obama to keep the group out of his political talking points.
The nation's leading senior advocacy organization objected after the president during Wednesday's debate twice mentioned the AARP while defending his health care plan and attacking Mitt Romney's plans for Medicare.
The AARP posted a blog saying that while the group is "grateful" the candidates had a "robust" debate on health care, the organization is not aligned with either candidate.

should any body take this as a sign of:
1) AARP's shrinking membership because it HAS aligned itself with Prog/Dem entitlement-style government, or
2) just another rat-bastard lib/socialist support group jumping OFF a sinking ship!?! and, dropping a verbal 'bomb' as it does?

Romney doesn't even list the deductions or loopholes that he intends to close or diminish on his website.
I don't see why he can't if it's what he is going to do.
Romney also did not address the fact that closing every loophole and deduction for the rich wouldn't even come close to balancing or paying for the tax cut.
Romney's out of his mind if he thinks he's going to sway "undecided" voters with his fuzzy math.

Romney on '47 percent': I was 'completely wrong'
By KASIE HUNT | Associated Press – 3 hrs ago...

FISHERSVILLE, Va.(AP)— Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has described his disparaging remarks about the 47 percent of Americans who don't pay federal income taxes as "not elegantly stated." Now he's calling them "just completely wrong."

The original remarks, secretly recorded during a fundraiser in May and posted online in September by the magazine Mother Jones, sparked intense criticism of Romney and provided fodder to those who portray him as an out-of-touch millionaire oblivious to the lives of average Americans. The remarks became a staple of Obama campaign criticism.

Initially, Romney defended his view, telling reporters at a news conference shortly after the video was posted that his remarks were "not elegantly stated" and that they were spoken "off the cuff." He didn't disavow them, however, and later adopted as a response when the remarks were raised that his campaign supports "the 100 percent in America."

In an interview Thursday night with Fox News, Romney was asked what he would have said had the "47 percent" comments come up during his debate in Denver on Wednesday night with President Barack Obama.

"Well, clearly in a campaign, with hundreds if not thousands of speeches and question-and-answer sessions, now and then you're going to say something that doesn't come out right," Romney said. "In this case, I said something that's just completely wrong."

He added: "And I absolutely believe, however, that my life has shown that I care about 100 percent and that's been demonstrated throughout my life. And this whole campaign is about the 100 percent."

Critics of Romney's "47 percent" remarks noted that many of those who don't pay federal incomes taxes pay other forms of taxes. More than 16 million elderly Americans avoid federal income taxes solely because of tax breaks that apply only to seniors, the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center reports. Millions of others don't pay federal income taxes because they don't earn enough after deductions and exemptions.

Acknowledging error is rare for Romney. Asked recently whether his TV ads had strayed from the facts, he said they had been "absolutely spot-on." Fact-checking operations have argued otherwise.

Some conservatives rallied around Romney after the video surfaced, urging him to stand behind the remarks as accurate despite the criticism.

"There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what," Romney said in the video. "There are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe that government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it."

"Forty-seven percent of Americans pay no income tax," Romney said, and that his role "is not to worry about those people. I'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives."

Romney later told reporters at a news conference called to address the remarks: "It's not elegantly stated, let me put it that way. I was speaking off the cuff in response to a question. And I'm sure I could state it more clearly in a more effective way than I did in a setting like that."

Mitt Romney's tax plan gets curiouser and curiouser.
Good analysis, but your link doesn't work, so I'll try it again after this excerpt from the article:

...The only way Romney would be able to cut taxes as deeply as he wants, without adding to the deficit or simply offsetting a tax cut in one place with a tax hike in another, is to boost the economy so much that total tax payments would actually go up, despite lower rates. The idea that lower taxes stimulate growth is a core belief of many "supply-side" conservatives, even though there's plenty of evidence to the contrary. The federal tax burden today is the lowest in modern times, for instance, yet over the last decade that has corresponded with slowing growth rates and falling median income rather than the kind of boom that supply-side theory predicts.(cont.)

Hope this one works for anybody who is interested enough to want to understand why Romney doesn't have a plan. He just doesn't.

Now, now. You're hysterical. But, what do you think about this. Please note that Politico's Ben White says that Romney's Dodd-Frank comment blew up his in-box like no other:

Romney's Dodd-Frank Comments Shock Bewildered Bankers
Posted: 10/04/2012

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/mark-gongloff/d...

.....This canard, that Dodd-Frank essentially sets "too big to fail" in stone forever, is one of Republicans' favorite arguments against Dodd-Frank. It sounds good and puts them on record as being against banks being "too big to fail," along with pretty much everybody (aside from the Jamie Dimons) in the world. But it is a misleading argument, and repealing Dodd-Frank ultimately favors the banks. If they really enjoyed Dodd-Frank's wet sloppy kisses, why would they be spending so much money to furiously do away with it?(That approach is working pretty well, by the way, as demonstrated last week, when Wall Street won another round in court against Dodd-Frank, when a judge blocked new rules setting limits on speculation in commodities.) As my former colleague David Weidner at the Wall Street Journal points out, this is of course Romney's ultimate goal -- to help the banks by doing away with Dodd-Frank. Sadly, though, President Obama's approach, aside from causing a few hurt feelings among hyper-sensitive bankers, has hardly been much more painful for banks.....

Biden acknowledges he, Obama want to raise $1 trillion in taxes on wealthy

Published October 04, 2012

FoxNews.com

COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa – For everyone who claims the Obama administration wants a $1 trillion tax hike, Joe Biden has a message: Yes, we do.

The vice president was referring Thursday to the Democrats' pledge to let the Bush-era tax cuts on the country's top 2 percent of earners expire at the end of the year, while maintaining current rates for other Americans. Republicans have called for maintaining the current rates for all Americans.

Isn't it amazing that, within only one week of Tiger Woods crashing his
Escalade, the press found every woman with whom Tiger has had an affair
during the last few years?

And, they even uncovered photos, text messages, recorded phone calls, etc.!

Furthermore, they not only know the cause of the family fight, but they even
know it was a wedge from his golf bag that his wife used to break out the
windows in the Escalade.

Not only that, they know which wedge!

And, each and every day, they were able to continue to provide America with
updates on Tiger's sex rehab stay, his wife's plans for divorce, as well as
the dates and tournaments in which he will play.

Now, Barack Hussein Obama has been in office for nearly three years, yet
this very same press:

· Cannot find any of his childhood friends or neighbors;

· Or find any of Obama's high school or college classmates;

· Or locate any of his college papers or grades;

· Or determine how he paid for both a Columbia and Harvard education;

· Or discover which country issued his visa to travel to Pakistan in the
1980s;

· Or even find Michelle Obama's Princeton thesis on racism.

They just can't seem to uncover any of this.

Yet, the public still trusts that same press to give them the whole truth!

Simply amazing, isn't it?

Would any of Barack Obama's classmates at Columbia University back in the
early 1980's please step foward.

Thank you.
