I totally agree, people should do their part.

Psst... Jimmy, Romney doesn't create jobs, he is a venture capitalist, a parasite that lives off the great ideals of other people that actually puts in the work to make a great business.
OoooOOOOOooOoOOOOooh, Mind = Blown... Romney is just like a welfare queen only real.
Tell that to Staple's pookie and 80% of all the other companies he saved. If you must lie to win, you never will loser.

I am lying? so you are saying he didn't make his money from Venture capital? Last time I checked that is what he is known for doing. perhaps you can enlighten me how that is a lie?

Staples was someone else's idea that he profited off of, just like everything else he did, didn't come up with one original idea, didn't create or build his own business, no just lived off the hard work of other people's creative solutions.

Oh, we all get it alright. Win any way you can even if you LIE, CHEAT AND STUFF the ballot box. The REP LADIES should do the same thing and you will be screaming from the roof tops. The tide is turning since the black people will no longer be the minority - the Hispanic will. The Dems are the biggest RACIST that we have here in America. They pull the race card for anything and everything that they do not like and for everything they want.

Spining to win I see. You said he did't produce jobs. I proved you wrong. Nice diversion though.

Don't you know - a Dem's said so - so that makes it right.

Just like Obama saying 90% wanted the background check that the SENATE DID NOT APPROVE. When you check the records of gun owners they believe it would lead to confiscation of guns.

Dems poll their own people to get the answer they want.

So which jobs did he create? because I am still waiting to hear you bring up one example of him creating anything let alone a job.

I told you before, Staple's is one. When you save a company and it expands ten fold, you created jobs. Now when is Obama going to pivot.......after his next vacation. Obama has spent more time on vacation and golf than on the economy.

And how is that?

We elected a businessman to govern our state of Ohio. He virtually erased our debt, balanced the budget, we are now about 1% lower unemployment rate than the national average, and he's been able to attract new businesses.

If politicians were able to run our businesses the way they run the country, most all businesses would be closed today. But if a business person runs the country the way they ran a business, we would probably be around 3.5% unemployment today.

The Right wont win another National Election in our lifetimes.
Praise God!!
Theyve lost touch with the American people and serve only the special interests of a handful of elderly white billionaires.
Period.
Yep, the same thing they said after DumBama got into the White House. Then the 2010 elections came along, and the liberals dummied up.

It is called parity. White people vote once, and blacks multi vote. How else would 13% of the population cast the most votes? It is illegal unless you are black, then it is encouraged.

Blacks make up less then 15% of our population. The only way they could outvote whites is if they multi vote. They did, and they don't give a damn if you know it. They have no more respect for this country then the illegals the Democrats are trying to shove down our throats. Call your congressman, and tell him how you feel about Amnesty.
Where are these statistics coming from?

If blacks only made up 15% of the total population they would would rarely be seen instead of being surrounded by blacks sitting at an intersection.

If blacks only made up 15% of the total population we wouldn't be having all the welfare problems we have and prisons wouldn't be predominately black.

That's got to be a liberal statistic. Same goes for all brown people.
