Specifically how?
<quoted text>Right. News for you. NEITHER party gives a rat's about them. It's all about getting and holding power. Repubs and Demos are nought but 2 heads of the same coin.
Both use fear mongering and lies to coax the sheep to pull the lever for them.
He also a little later found the damage was greater than first thought.

Give a rat's ***? How about this for not caring?

"Let Detroit go bankrupt."
-- Romney

And

“Don't try to stop the (home) foreclosure process. Let it run its course and hit the bottom.”
— Mitt Romney, defending banks and kicking people out of their homes

As well as this ....

“I'm not concerned about the very poor. We have a safety net there.”
-- Mitt Romney (January 2012)

And this

“(People) who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe that government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it" .....
"My job is not to worry about those people."
-- Mitt Romney (May 2012)

Not his job? Just what will be his job if elected President if nearly half of America isn't it?

The poor people that Romney in January of this year says this about ..... "I'm not concerned about the very poor. We have a safety net there", and last May the 47 percent that "My job is not to worry about those people"? That's you and me. He said on Good Morning America on 9-14-12 that middle-class are people that make between $200,000 and $250,000 per year. So you and me (unless you break 200,000)..... we 'are' the poor 47 percent he doesn't give a dang about.

Romney is only for Romney, and he serves only the ultra-rich.

Anyone low-income or middle-class is an idiot if they vote for Romney.

Running scared, that what Mr. Obama is doing now.
He briefly made a speech at the United Nations before returning to the election trail.
Mr. Obama missed the meetings at the U.N. with leaders of other countries, this is unheard of, but I guess if your about to loose the farm you will try to do what it takes.
It looks like SNL can gear up on skits about Mr. Romeny, since they took it easy on the Namster.

Keep telling yourself that as he gains in the polls and romps through to another resounding win on Election Day, chump.

Missing meetings at the U.N. is hardly "unheard-of," and very hypocritical coming from a party which HATES the U.N. and wants it abolished...

Once again , responsibility. The banks loaned money to people who promised to pay it back. It is not the fault of the banks or the other customers of the bank that a customer failed to repay their loan.

Totally disingenuous. Banks and mortgage companeis sold people on bad or risky mortgages, then as the housing market crashed and jobs were lost, people found themselves underwater, unable to pay their mortgage and in danger of foreclosure. The banksters deceived and conned th epublic, then were bailed out after their fraud trashed the economy.

We do and it is quite generous.

>>You can say that only because you've never LIVED on it. not to mention the fact that YOUR PARTY would abolish most or all of it if they could.

He was referring to those who pay no federal taxes in the context that he will not bother to campaign for their vote. We know they will vote for obama. Romney spending time trying to get their vote would be like a treadmill manufacturer marketing to quadriplegics.

>>Except that that's baloney, and we all know it. A sizable number of these people are Republicans, some are rich people, and many of them are employed and pay no net taxes because Repubs and Dems alike wanted it that way, including your St. Ronnie Reagan. And in any case, they're ALL Americans. Fortunately, we already have a President who wants to be Prsident for ALL of us, not just those who pay net federal income taxes. I say we re-elect him instead of this spoiled rich buffooon.

Incidentally, the voters in Detroit had little if ANYTHING to do with the failure of the auto industry, which is what Mittens was talking about. Not the 'city of Detroit.' Idiot.

Do you think we will ever recover from 4 more years of this? Remember what he told the russians. He has proven he does not need congress and will not be limited by them. He has been ruling with executive orders.
4 more years of his war on energy will leave many people starving and freezing in their homes.
His practice of pitting groups of Americans against other Americans could very well spark a civil war.
He told the Russians he could act more freely without the political constraints imposed by re-election. That likely means better relations with Russia and possibly with nuclear arms reduction and negotiations over the Iran problem. Those are GOOD things, in case you don't get it.

He's issued only legal executive orders, and has certainly not tried to 'govern without Congress,' which he's Constitutionally unable to do.

There is no "war on energy," idiot.

Finally, un-American dividers like you are the ones pitting us against one another, not Mr. Obama who's CONSTANTLY reminded us we all need to pull together. You aren't even a good liar, sadly.

Barack Obama is an elected leader who has proven himself, while Mitt Romney is a fraud which his party is trying to force on us.

Its entertaining to watch the republicans turn on their own....

as a resident of Massachusetts, I would never advocate Romney for president. Of course I dont have to say a word...Romney seems to be digging his own grave.

We cant give up the fight though. Money can buy elections...and the one thing Romney has is money.

As a Democratic voter it is clear that President Obama is going to be re-elected, therefore I have decided I am not going to vote this time around and just save my gasoline money.

Thomas that is bad advise...every vote is needed. If you truly are a democrat you know what is on the line with this election. If voters get lazy...that could be a game changer.

Romney with his 47% statement and his ER is what people with no insurance do he has buried himself. He is right 47% of Americans would never vote for him and another 10-20% will vote for Obama because of Romenys statements.....

I personally lost a loved one this year, years too early...because of the health insurance issues.NO ONE SHOULD DIE for lack of affordable health care. ER care is not the answer. Preventative care is far cheaper and with better outcomes.

I can only pray that the majority of voters will be as repulsed by Romneys ER comment as I was!

Two things to worry about
1)$$$$$$
2) a court system that has been packed with conservatives

those two things are worth 1-2 % on election day
If we want to bury these fools we will need a very deep hole.
Even in Tenn. your vote is worth the gas $$$
