In the name of Joseph Smith, let' pray that they don't. We finally have the severely conservative Christain candidate that we've wanted with a strong business background. Romney is not perfect, but he is far better than what we have now. My biggest fear in the world is that Obama knocked up a woman and has a baby in another country. I don't sleep at night thinking about it.

It does look a little like a Democratic conspiracy. Why can't we all just get along? I think Mitt Romney will unite us. He's the one thing we ALL have in common.

The more the Democrats ignore the GSA scandal, the Secret Service scandal, the obscene spending, the inflation, the unemployment rate, and the "Let them eat Cake" attitude of the first family the greater their loss will be in November. We need grown ups in charge. This golfing, partying anything goes group must be voted out so we can get something done to fix our economy. It is the Ecobony, Stupid.
I couldn't agree more. We need the Romney family in the White House. There won't be anymore scandals or anything obscene. There will be no unemployment. Everyone will in fact have cake, maybe even cupcakes. Ours is a message of hope.

This I pray, in the name of Joseph Smith. Amen.

If the lame stream media upheld their historical roll on reporting the facts instead of serving as a propaganda tool of the marxist, Obama would have resigned by now.

Call it President Obamaís Committee for the Re-Election of the President ó a political slush fund at the Health and Human Services Department.

Only this isnít some little fund from shadowy private sources; this is taxpayer money, redirected to help Obama win another term. A massive amount of it, too ó$8.3 billion. Yes, thatís billion, with a B.

Here is how it works.

The most oppressive aspects of the ObamaCare law donít kick in until after the 2012 election, when the president will no longer be answerable to voters. More ďflexibility,Ē he recently explained to the Russians.

Postponing the pain: The administration is temporarily restoring funds to Medicare Advantage so seniors donít lose coverage before the election.
But certain voters would surely notice one highly painful part of the law before then ó namely, the way it guts the popular Medicare Advantage program.

Why and wtf not?

Young voters who care about the future economy, future women and family issues and the future of the middle class will not vote for republicants. Yes a "zero"!

President Obama will be in office after 2012 and he will be "answerable" to the voters.

They help save this country from more tyranny.
The teabaggers didn't govern over the last two years. They practiced obstructionism for the last two years and because of their childish stance, the republican party has the lowest approval numbers in their history and the tea party has dwindled to a few angry stragglers. The death of Andrew Beitbart was divine intervention, imo.

Looks like God is a democrat.

Obama wins.

In the beginning we were all one tribe. We took care of each other and looked after each other. Now we are all single units that care only about ourselves. We need to go back to being a tribe.

Normal Americans are waking up to the fact that the teabaggers would rather destroy this country than compromise and act like civilized people. They are corporate shills and will be ousted in the next election. They are a part of the right wing lunatic fringe! They actually make the Democrats look good.(and the dems aren't all that great either)

Although a disaster for America, bringing the nation to the brink of economic meltdown and costing us a drop in our credit rating, the House TeaPublicans did create amusing havoc in the Dem Party and give a permanantly weepy look to poor Speaker Boehner's orangey face. I'll give them credit for that, at least. :)

The Credit rating was lowered because of the obscene spending of the Democrat President, and the Democrat House, and Senate. The Democrats lost the House in 2010, because of the Obama care fiasco, and will lose the Senate this election, because they have not stopped their spending spree.
