Does this man do anything OTHER than 'campaign'?

Doesn't he know the election is over and it is time for him to be strong, decisive and unify this country in a POSITIVE DIRECTION??

Do climbing shoes come with your mountain's of bullshit?

Romney is on the board of directors again with Marriott, y'know one of the many American companies he saved. The only people Bush chased away are the Taliban out of Aghanistan.

If the rich are being chased away, it's nobummer that's doing it. You'll have no money for entitlements after they're gone, bozo.

why would they run to the Cayman islands, we have utopia right here? Yep, you are free to earn as much as you wish, just be prepared to pay about half of it, or more to various people/agencies with their hands out

Here's an idea:

Let the tax reductions expire.

Start taking the increased tax out of paychecks.

THEN, at the end of the year, retroactively bring the tax reduction back.

Return that $2000 (or so) back when workers file their tax returns.

People will suddenly feel RICH because of what they see is a WINDFALL of extra money in their income tax refund check.

And let the spending spree begin!

The socialist dictator Obama lies through his teeth when he talks about ‘Middle Class’ of liberal Blacks, Hispanics and Asians that voted for him in return for Obama free checks before the elections and free checks that Obama promised to be paid 'forever' in the future. There is no Middle Class, but there is beggars and scroungers class that is getting monthly check from Obama and does not even look for any job for their life time. The liberal Democrats are wrong to believe that the ‘cliff’ will help them with the socialistic revolution that aims at destroying America as we knew and loved to stay. The conservatives Whites that pay 80% of the taxes that are used by Obama to buy votes of his liberal base including paying free pension and healthcare to his Union hordes and giving free Obama checks and phones to 17 more Americans who are willingly unemployed and do not want to find a job and to 9 million more Americans that are willingly disabled and wish to stay home getting the Obama check that finding a job. The culture of beggars parasites and scrounger that Obama brought to America using the conservatives tax to by votes of the Blacks, Hispanic and Asians including giving away free student loans and free mortgages to buy votes for lifetime is pushing America to is worst crisis that would break the Union to the liberal losing and bankrupted states led by California, NY, NJ, IL, CT and the conservative states that will keep their sovereignty and will not fall to bankruptcy as Obama wishes. The stealing of money in front of our eyes with the support of the liberal media led by the NY times, ABC and AP by Obama and Geithner to purchase they socialistic dictatorship power for lifetime will led to states such as Texas to leave the falling apart Union of 236 years.

LOL, you are giving away your income level. Sounds like you think people pay about half when the rich don't pay anything at all. Of the largest corporations in the US 24% don't pay any income taxes on earnings of trillions of dollars. Of course, why should they, they have the gold, they make the rules.

As to why would they run to the Cayman Islands? Why do they? Maybe it has something to do with the middle class losing all its purchasing power so there are no more people to rob.

What you call "campaigning" is actually the President bringing his agenda to the American people; speaking out in a strong, decisive, and positive way.

And his optics are outstanding flying in on Air Force One. If you win and you get the awesome props, might as well use them...

The rich pay most of the taxes, nutball. Those over 250,000 a year. Nobama's base voters..........don't pay, but recieve.

Earning trillions??? What the hell have you been smoking??

How many rich democrats have money in the Caymans? Most of them, bozo. The middle class is losing it's purchasing power because of new taxes imposed since 2006, nobamacaretax and failed projects by this administration. The entitlement losers are robbing the taxpayers..........dem congress and kickbacks from unions are robbing those that employ.....causing shutdowns and layoffs.

Get a brain.

Oh Darn. I guess I just haven't been keeping up with the Fox News of the day. I always had a problem forgetting what they said yesterday so I could believe the new story today. If I want to converse with you, I better get up to date on the Fox News Fantasy.(On the other hand, maybe I don't want to live in Fox Fantasy.)
