We are lucky to have the choice between continuing to see America degraded, devalued, and divided by the so called Progressive freak fringe CRAPOLA or Voting for Romney.

Cubans and North Koreans are STUCK with their Dictator. All we have to do is VOTE to end Obama's reign of terror.

Ryan would execute a little girl who was raped and subsequently aborted the fetus.

Ryan would send Romney's daughters in law to prison for IVF.

Ryan is a MONSTER.

The GOPUX is the filthiest, most despicable party since the nazzies.

I bet your neighbors wouldn't think "Oregon Sux" so much if you moved to Cuba or North Korea to fulfill you life long dream of being nothing and living off a few beans and a handful of rice when available. You Obama people have so little to offer but are so full of hate and rage. It must be awful to be you.

Obama in a statement yesterday blamed the shocking new round of subprime-related bankruptcies on the free-market system, and specifically the "trickle-down" economics of the Bush administration, which he tried to gig opponent John McCain for wanting to extend.

But it was the Clinton administration, obsessed with multiculturalism, that dictated where mortgage lenders could lend, and originally helped create the market for the high-risk subprime loans now infecting like a retrovirus the balance sheets of many of Wall Street's most revered institutions.

Tough new regulations forced lenders into high-risk areas where they had no choice but to lower lending standards to make the loans that sound business practices had previously guarded against making. It was either that or face stiff government penalties.

The untold story in this whole national crisis is that President Clinton put on steroids the Community Redevelopment Act, a well-intended Carter-era law designed to encourage minority homeownership. And in so doing, he helped create the market for the risky subprime loans that he and Democrats now decry as not only greedy but "predatory."

The only thing Bush has had to do with this is that in 2004 he (along with McCain who cosponsored the bill) and a few other congressmen tried to overhaul and regulate how Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were run and their financing.

The Democrats Blocked the measure:

Top 3 receivers of Fannie Mae Funds.

Chris Dodd
Barack Obama

Did Tricky Mitt Romney get the 2009 IRS Amnesty for committing felonies?

"Mitt Romney puts out new ad today calling Obama a liar for saying he outsourced jobs. On the same day, a Boston Globe article busted Romney for still being at Bain when he said he wasn’t, which ironically proves Obama right. Oh, Mitt.

Mitt Romney is accusing President Obama of lying in a new ad today. Romney says that the President’s ad regarding Romney’s outsourcing history is a lie. Romney asks how voters can trust Obama to lead if he “doesn’t tell the truth.”

That’s a great question. If Romney thinks not telling the truth is a bad thing, perhaps he can explain to us why he mislead the public about when he left Bain, a claim that allowed him to deny his reputation as an outsourcer. "

Mitt Romney will lose, because the american people have seen just how small and petty, the republican party has become, in their desire to block any progress the President might make. They have in essence placed the meanspirited, desires of the party, over the needs of the country....

Romney is parsing his words about not paying any taxes. So Reid is correct, Romney did not pay taxes for 10 years.

" he paid a federal tax rate of at least 13% in each of the last 10 years"

So, this pathologically lying piece of garbage has been in public office and running for public office for 10 years. Want to bet that prior to that he was NOT PAYING ANY TAXES?

Otherwise, he could EASILY have said, as the vast majority of Americans could have said:

'I have paid federal taxes for every year I have been an adult.'

He didn't. He's a creep. He's a pathologically lying POS and his wife Ann is a pathologically lying, whining POS as well. All the Romneys do these days is lie, lie, lie, incite race wars, incite actual shooting wars, incite wars over money, incite class wars and then whine when the other side hits back hard.

Go Harry! I would be embarrassed and really angry if the most visible member of my Church was this pathologically lying POS garbage family.

Isn't it funny that MORMONS are going after the Romneys for being filthy, pathologically lying human excrement and gutter trash?

Huntsman is rumored to be behind the, Romney did not pay taxes for 10 years, account.

LOL. Even MORMONS despise Romney for his filthy, lying, thieving, cheating, draft dodging, tax dodging, wimpy, racist, bigoted ways.

We'll believe it when we see it ...

Until Mitt Romney releases his tax returns, Americans will continue to wonder what he's hiding.

Romney seems to think he plays by a different set of rules than every other presidential candidate for the last thirty years, all of whom lived up to the standard of transparency set by Mitt Romney's father and released their tax returns.

Mittens 'our favorite Mormon' displays scant honesty. He thinks everything is 'for sale'. Obama is vastly superior as a leader, spokesperson, and identifies easily with the middle class. Bishop Willard understands personal wealth and little else. Every time he opens his pie hole, he inserts both feet.
