Opinion: Why Mitt Romney is losing
I find this so funny, Romney Losing?
You go by polls or what?
At Election time Romney is going to win with quite large numbers.
These on line polls are no where even close to what's really happening.
People are voting in these on line polls from all around the world, its not just Americans.
Anyone that would go by an on line poll these days Is just absolutely insane.
Even in this country, Obama has f'ed over so many many people, That his actual numbers are down.
The liberal media in no way can afford to present the truth.
George Soros and the Socialistic liberals prop up Mr. Obama's numbers.
Just wait until November and you will see the truth.
Most people are sick and tired of the Obama class warfare sickness, and just want a JOB and realize that this
Overly corrupted Obama admin will never be able to produce for our country.

Mitt Romney is very likely to win in November. Unlike Obama, Mitt Romney understands that we need tax reform and to control spending.

Perhaps it's because I feel those outside of the investment class are expendable?

Perhaps it's because I was too precious to fight in Vietnam? I was for the war,but didn't have the guts and nerve to go myself. I spent my draft dodging years in France at an elegant chateau. I spent my years there eating quiche,sipping wine and nibbling on cheese cubes from my expensively manicured hands.

Perhaps it's because I feel entitled to do as I please?

Perhaps it's because I feel that I'm special,precious and unique?

Perhaps it's because of my love for giving American workers the pink slip?

Perhaps it's my love for outsourcing American jobs to Malaysia,Mexico and China to collect the multimillion dollars in fees?

Perhaps it's because I maintain a fabulous tan all year round? I spend an incredible amount of time weekly in my expensive tanning bed. I'm very manly. My tan personifies what I feel to be epitomizes male masculinity.

Perhaps it's because my hair is perfectly sculpted and dyed every week? I spend more time at the salon than most women. I also spend more time in front of the mirror than Ann. Plus,my haircuts cost 3 times more than John Edwards' cuts cost him.

Perhaps it's because of my weekly manicures? I spend more time at the nail salon than most women in the world.

Why doesn't obama talk about his accomplishments? He did healthcare, FINREG, ended Iraq, economy on the mend, killed bin laden. Everything is so much "better" now. Our muslim brethren love us, we are respected in the world again.

Instead:

1. Bush's fault.
2. Republican obstruction
3. Romney's tax records.

What happened to "hope and change"?

The con's 'bush' stink will never go away. Unless they follow laura ingraham's advice: scrap the gop. However, we know they lack any courage to do anything...so that flubya shadow will always follow them.

Now there's some trickle down cowardice. hahahahahahahaha
"The Tea Party’s Plan to Cripple Congress

...They set out to change Washington but settled for simply paralyzing it.

They repealed Obama’s health-care law 33 times but didn’t change one word of its 2,700 or so pages. They stopped the Grand Bargain over the debt and deficit even at the cost of exposing Speaker John Boehner as a scaredy cat.

They haven’t been able to curb the excesses of Wall Street, keep the debt ceiling from rising, or end government subsidies to NPR or Amtrak -- but by God, they can bring the capital to its knees. Nearly everyone hates Congress (well, about 80 percent of Americans do) yet the Tea Party -- fortified by Sarah Palin, Senator Jim DeMint and the Club for Growth -- is about to do for the Senate what it did to the House. " bloomberg

This is the state of the rightwing in the USA: childish, ignorant, uneducated, lower class ****heads. It is enough to give George Will a permanent migraine.

The TeaBaggers and the Republiscum are public embarrassments for the USA. From the moron that is Dumbya to the demented fool that is Clint Eastwood...what did we do to deserve these creeps.

8 hours per day, 40 hours per week for 12 years. The social indoctrination by the public school system is now designed to teach the religion of secular humanism and to favor the political system of socialism. The liberal media is bombarding the American sheeple with overwhelming pro-Obama propaganda. While the free market system is denigrated and Romney is vilified.

The glassy eyed sheeple are marching like zombies to eat the brain of Conservatives who are bravely still fighting for freedom and Constitutional rights.

A blatant example of the pro-Obama media coverage is especially apparent in the current propaganda about Islamic extremist.

"The Innocence of Muslims," the film that is reported to have instigated deadly riots in Egypt, Libya, and 23 other Muslim nations, Is the only concern in the main stream media. Our State department is apologizing but ignoring the slaughter and banishment of Christians, that has been happening since the "Arab Spring" last year.

You can kill Christians and cover the genocide up in the news, just don't make a film that is critical of Muslims. That is the message

The film was shot in Los Angeles County in August of 2011 under the original title “Desert Warriors," It portrays Muhammad, the Prophet of Islam, as a womanizer, murderer and child molester.

Over 100,000 Egyptian Christians have fled religious discrimination in their majority Muslim country to come to the US, with large communities in California, New Jersey, the Midwest and Florida. Over 1 million christians have been killed in Africa and the Middle East recently.

In Jan. 2011, after a Muslim bombing of a Coptic church in Egypt, the survivors of the Coptic Christian churches are being told to leave Egypt which has been their traditional homeland for 2,000 years.

The US media is silent about the genocide, while screaming about the film that "insults Muslims

I often travel to Mexico and the last election was totally rigged and full of corruption instigated by the drug cartels and the media.

I mention this as an example of how the media controls elections.

The Mexican election was held on July, 1st and after Pena was announced as the new President of Mexico, there were riots all over Mexico and this was ignored by the US media, they made it seem like all was OK.

On July 5th, there was a film in the US theaters, called "Savages", it was about drug dealers in California and Mexico. It was directed by Oliver Stone.

In the film, which absolutely could not have been edited four days after the election. Those who know Mexican politics, also know the corruption.

In the film, it had a drug lord say, "Now that PAN is out , and PRI is back in....."

The significance of this is that by all accounts the election was very close and unpredictable by the polls. PAN and PRI are the political parties of Mexico, like Republicans and Democrats here in the USA. But Oliver Stone already knew months in advance that Pena would win the election because of inside information.

Here in the USA we also have a media controlled election.

Romney's loss is much deeper than voters lining up as "Sheep" for Obama. The Republican party is fractured into too many segments. They need to sit down and figure out where to go from here.

Do you never read a newspaper, watch a news channel? It was all over the place last week, before the animals killed the Ambassador, and 3 other Americans, that Obama had not met with his intelligence people for a morning breifing, you know like Bush did every day, for weeks. Today it is being reported that the President, and the State Department knew of the imminent attack 48 hours before the actual attack took place. It is this kind of incompetance that we cannt take for 4 more years.
I know, as does even a second grader, that the President of the United States is briefed by intelligence agencies on a daily basis. During a crisis, he is briefed hourly, I've heard that reported numerous times in the press. Duh. As for him being a mind reader and guessing which embassy is going to be attacked, go ahead and send him your crystal ball since apparently you know things before they happen. lmao. All embassies have 24/7 security, zippy and we spend billions in aid to insure each country protects our embassies abroad. Again, duh.

If you actually have been watching REAL news, you would know that Egypt has had protests DAILY for months and so did Libya before it fell and now the same thing is happening in Syria but has escalated to a full blown civil war. Remember now, Bush started this firestorm in the middle east, not President Obama. He's just dealing with the MESS Dick and Bush left us for DECADES to come. Had they handled the aftermath of 9/11 more carefully and only gone after bin laden and Al Qaeda, we wouldn't have the mess that started in Iraq and has now spread.

Give credit where credit is due. Dick and Bush created this mess by assuming people in the middle east want democracy. They do not. They want us to leave them alone so they can stay stuck in the dark ages. I say let them eat their own. Problem solved.

I guess it's okay to indulge in a little wishful thinking now and then, just as long as you can find your way back to reality. Mitt Romney's chances of winning the presidency are dead on arrival.
