My favorite 47 percenter recent comment from loser romney was said on fux:

You know, when you speak in private, you don't spend as much time thinking about how something could be twisted and distorted, and it could come out wrong and be used," Romney said.

Romney, dear, your comments on tape were said by you - yes you - and so how could they "twisted" and "distorted" when the very words came out your mouth?

If what you say is true, you are retried because your company closed down. No business can operate successfully with incompetents running their operation. That's why the US is F'd today. We took an incompetent man and put him in the highest position for another four years.

Quit blaming Bush. That's an old rag DumBama is even avoiding now. What you really have to ask yourself is if DumBama was running this country 20 years ago the way he's running it now, where would we be today?????

If they're as good and strong as some like you claim, they should break off the conservative teet and do their own thing. But unfortunately for them, they're just a parasite for the GOP.
So, the TP is for more Government?
And more taxes and spending?

If you get rid of the likes of the tea-p? I'd say so. But they just don't "play well" together. Murkowski beating Miller in Alaska is a great example of strong selective voting, but poor general appeal.
There was no tea party when Ford, Bush-41, Dole, and McCain lost. But you do have a point about Miller, He couldn't beat a crooked write-in candidate like Murkowski, even in a big year for the GOP.

I guess that's why they are bunch of thieves and liars.
AARP has been sending me garbage in the mail for over a year now. I'm only 52 years old, but that doesn't stop them. I wrote and called them to kindly ask that they not send any more solicitations to my home. They kept right on sending them. So I simply ignored them and threw them away.
Next thing you know, AARP signed me up as a member without my consent. They couldn't charge me anything of course, but their dishonesty tells you how they operate.
Along with my name, they use millions like me to lie about their membership. People who are automatically considered AARP members who didn't want to be.
lol! Riiiiight..... As opposed to a corporation like Microsoft who just got fined AGAIN for not following through on their promise of not limiting people to IE.

Talk about dishonesty and how they operate!

That would depend. In general, they don't mind smaller government and austerity... as long as it's applied to others.

True. But you still had Ron Paul. And most agree he's more Libertarian than GOP.

The point being, the GOP has been in flux for a long time. It's only recently it's boiled to the surface. And it appears to be in a dormant state now.

The problem with our country is that it's not run like a business. If our country was run by business people, they would be successful like most businesses. Let politicians run business like they run the country, we wouldn't have any businesses at all.
I'm glad the citizens of my state of Ohio finally realized that. When we had enough of professional politicians, we elected a businessman to run our state. He's done pretty good so far. Our unemployment rate is about one percent of the national unemployment rate. He took us from an 8 billion dollar deficit and now we are working on a rainy day fund. He has kept businesses here and making it more inviting for other businesses to come to Ohio. Is Kasich perfect? No. But we are in much better shape than the last few decades of professional politicians.
Name one country EVER that was run like a business..

Right on bro. Let's run the country just like Enron and have the financial institutions sell us all the derivatives they can. That's the way to run the country.

Now all they have to do is explain what derivatives really are.

Romney is a huge success in life. He started Bain Capital and the company is still a success today. How do you think CEO's get those multi-million dollar contracts and bonuses? That's right, from their past performances just like musicians, football players, baseball players, basketball players, actors and actresses.
Okay, so it was on a smaller scale. But what accomplishments has DumBama made on a smaller scale? Community organizer? A year or so in the US Senate? A state representative where he voted "present" most of the time? How can anybody compare these two candidates, especially after DumBama's failed first term presidency?
It's nothing more than urban legend saying that DumBama did anything for this country such as avoiding a depression. Where is the proof of this? The so-called economic package was nothing but a complete failure. The GOP Congress took a stance to stop idiotic spending. DumBama couldn't do it back then no more than he can do it today. That's why we lost our three-star credit rating for the first time in US history.
No, he's not been a "huge success in life." He was staked by a rich and powerful father to an elite education and a start in business, much the same way George Bush Jr. was. They're typical of the kind of spoiled rich boy who, as the saying goes,'started life on third base and grew up believing they'd hit a triple.'

CEOs don't "perform" much of anything. At best they bring in good people who make most of the decisions, while they oversee said decisions. Their boards vote them huge, bloated compensation packages and they are set for life - even if fired, they usually have golden parachutes and get another CEO or similar job soon after. They are an overpaid privileged class who produce very little.

Mr. Obama worked his way to the top, had a decent first term, and was perceived as the better choice. While not ideal, I believe he was as well.

FWIW

ps - please don't make up stuff about the loss of our credit rating. It was entirely the fault of an obstructionist, Republican House.
