I find it totally amazing how phoney Romney is yet the far right just keeps believing it.
Romney goes from being thrilled to sign legislation that would ban all abortions yet says he will do nothing on abortion legislation.
compared to the American version of Hugo Chavez, the choice is obvious......

The only reason O'bama has any money at all is because Moochelle asked William Ayers to write his first book. ROTFLMAO.
O'bama--you didn't write that!
Ayers?

You and that idiot at NRO. Talk about laughable.

So, none of Mitt Romney's friends would benefit from his tax cuts.

None of Mitt Romney's friends benefited from TARP.

None of Romney's friends would benefit from his eliminating the tax on foreign profits.

Unless those people did something illegal, got something they weren't qualified for, the it doesn't matter.

What does matter is Todd Akin is a women hating, legitimate Rape idiot who thinks raped women can't get pregnant.

He just called every woman who was impregnated by a rapist a lying slut.

All you phone right whiners denounced hos statement but now rush in to fund his campaign.

You are just too stupid to know that this does not mean they are paying a higher rate but rather they are getting richer while the rest get poorer.

The rich get richer & the middle class shrinks.

Barack Hussein Obama II, has a net worth between $2,801,012 and $11,830,000, according to analysis of his 2012 financial disclosure forms. Excluding his primary home. His Chicago home is worth (allowing for depressed housing market) about 1.5 million.
Mitt worked hard and earned his money. Where did Obama get his?
Distractions become compulsory in MSNBCbot land.
MSNBCbot land?

So why does FOX feel the need to tell us that the Bird is richer than Romney?

Distraction. You know, how stupid was it to go after a children's tv character.

<quoted text> The president wasn't creative enough to do that, so Obama just ran with it and made a fool of himself again. LOL
He didn't want Mr. Romney to explain AGAIN to him the concept of what it means to borrow 40 cents out of every dollar you spend and how to evaluate expenditures to stop it. He knew a lot of people were watching that debate; some of them would make up their minds by the concepts brought out. He just didn't want it shown again how incompetent he has been with other people's money to those viewers. Better to wait and distort it to his base, where he will be ooh'd and aaah'd like he has said something profound.

the rest of the crew was trying to tell Donny that he was making a fool of himself and the program....kind of like the Obama Big Bird commercial...
I want to make an appeal to O'bama's people in Chicago: Run this ad every night over and over again, Spend all of your money and time on this. This is an ad that is trivial. It diminishes the presidency. It assumes, of course, that everybody wants to subsidize a company that, as we now know is [one] third of a billion-dollar enterprise. Big Bird himself is a 1%er--he makes over 300 thousand a year. Big Bird will be boycotted. Way to go O'bama.

Mitt Romney takes a position on tax policy, then his staff says something else. Romney takes a position on Iran, then his staff says something else. Romney takes a position on health care, then his staff says something else. Romney takes a position on his own immigration adviser, then his staff says something else.
This new one, however, is a doozy, even by Romney standards.
Mitt Romney today said no abortion legislation is part of his agenda, but he would prohibit federally-funded international nonprofits from providing abortions in other countries.
"There's no legislation with regards to abortion that I'm familiar with that would become part of my agenda," the GOP presidential candidate told The Des Moines Register's editorial board during a meeting today before his campaign rally at a Van Meter farm.
It took all of two hours before Romney's chief spokesperson said the exact opposite, explaining, "Gov. Romney would of course support legislation aimed at providing greater protections for life." Asked whether the candidate's position on abortion legislation had changed, Romney's spokesperson would "not answer directly."
It now appears that Romney has taken nine different positions on abortion rights over the course of 18 years.
What are we to make of a candidate who keeps trying to appear mainstream, only to have his aides change the story a couple of hours later?
He is incredible! What will he say today? What is he doing in this photo? Is this his position on public education?

<quoted text>Ryan will lie like Romney, Joe will come up with some unforgettable off the cuff quips. Bottom line: Joe will tell the truth, Ryan will lie.
If it turns into a Fox News matchup like the last debate, Joe can shout it out with the best of em, he won't follow the rules of the debate and bite his tongue like the president did.
Bite his tongue? LOL... he swallowed his tongue!! That's what happens when his brilliance comes across a teleprompter, that's what happens when affirmative action extends to the White House. That's what happens when presidential standards are relaxed and expectations are lowered because of skin color. Obama was a deer in the headlights and I'll tell you something, it's going to happen again.

Bullsh!t. At what point in the debate did you run out of your room crying? Romney was very specific about what he'd do and why. Obama, on the other hand, saw himself as "eye-candy" believing his mere presents would carry the day. Today, he admitted that as he left the stage, he thought he'd won the debate - clueless. What a narcissistic dandy.
Really.

Name the deductions & loopholes he will eliminate to balance out his 5 trillion tax cut?

Name the programs he will cut. Other than PBS

But hey, I laugh my ass off every time you right Whiners complain about Afghanistan.
A war that should have ended long before Obama took office but it was far from over.
It was far from over because George Bush declared Bin Laden irrelevant & abandoned our troops in Afghanistan to invade a country that had nothing to do with 9-11 or terrorism, Iraq.
Obl is dead and obama has been president for 4 years and we are still there.
