And people like Mitt Romney, as well as huge corporations, who use creative accounting and hidden offshore bank accounts to reduce their taxes. What about the 10 years of Romney tax returns that he won't reveal .. did he pay any income taxes?? We recently heard that between 2010 and 2011 Romney paid between 13% and 14.5%. Most middle class people pay 20% and above. Give me a break! Romney is a hypocrite, a cheat, and a liar. The sad thing is that there are people out there who will make excuses for him and criticize the poor, the seniors, the students, and the unemployed because they don't pay income taxes. For God's sake they can't afford to .. they can barely put food on the table and pay their bills. What's Romney's excuse?
So the creative accounting is illegal. If that was the case then not only would Mitt be in trouble as most of the corporations that you hate so much would be, but also of leftist democrates you love so much. Which atually means that everything they've done is legal.

My fellow Romney supporters. Stop trying to convince the Obama supporters on this post of anything - given that they not only support someone that has not been a success in 4 years - but follow a person like Joe Biden that can't even remember where he is at? What at team - Obama and good Ol Joe. I guess we have to over look the not so perfect people of our society from time to time.....

I'm with you, Tony. It's amazing, and scary, to realize how many ignorant people are living in these United States. Don't they read?
What's wrong with our society. They put on blinders and, like dumb sheep, they follow Romney and Ryan to the slaughter.
Didn't you know? It's OK for corporations to have money and not pay THEIR fair share, but the people of the United States? No. We get nothing. We can pay and pay and pay and we're not even allowed to have a government sponsored TV show for our children. All we're allowed to do is pay for wars that kill our kids and make rich people richer.

There are ONLY two reasons why most Americans are voting for Romney: he's white and he's Republican. They wouldn't care if he were Charles Manson as long he's Republican. If I felt Romney would be a better choice for the country, I'd vote for him, but he's demonstrated to me that he hates average Americans (of which I'm one) and I'm not going to vote for someone who plans to make MY life worse.

Where are the APOLOGIES to the AMERICAN PEOPLE from PResident OBAMA? He has FAILED to lead and HAS INVESTED in companies which were NOT fiscally strong! HE FAILED US!
We're waiting on President Obama to apologize but we really don't expect an apology from him.
Obama doesn't apologize. He finds apologizing beneath him. IT TAKES A MAN TO APOLOGIZES. Mitt Romney is that man.

YES to MITT ROMNEY!
YES TO REPUBLICAN SENATORS-we NEED to REpeal OBAMACARE

NO to FAILED LEADERSHIP
NO to FAILED FOREIGN POLICY-Obama's grandfather must be turning in his grave!
You just gave away your alternate profile there, Eighthman. You and he are the only two people here who are obsessed with the deaths of the ambassadors in Libya.

Just as I thought....most of you kooks have half a dozen profiles. There really aren't as many Romney supporters as it looks like.
