“The IRS, Benghazi and corporations are people too my friend”… more proof of just how pathetic Romney is, because anyone (.0001%) with the kind of money that he has wouldn’t be out running behind the guy who just beat the crap out of him looking to shadow his every move.

The honesty of the election has become HIGHLY QUESTIONABLE, to say the least, with the revelation that Conservative groups were targeted for persecution by the IRS, greatly reducing their effectiveness in the 2012 election.

As Romney said on the Jay Leno show

"The former Massachusetts governor said he's 'over' the election but is 'not a fan of the president.' He said a special counsel should be appointed to investigate the Obama administration and the IRS' targeting of conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status."

Amen Mitt Romney----the IRS Persecution of Americans is inexcusable.

Romney has so much class! You can tell with every line from Obama that he's so insecure. Never takes responsibility for anything and blames someone else. He never seems to know about anything going on?

Too bad he couldn’t win…‘We the People’ rejected him, you and the disgusting ideology that you believe in. I am happy that we voted for Obama and was able to celebrate a great victory as we enjoyed your suffering.

Get over it; YOU LOST! LOSER!

Amazing how this President doesn't seem to know anything, yet Liberals went out of their way to cheat and lie for him twice. Wonder what happened in their childhood to turn them evil and plain dumb?

The economy was strong under Bush, until the Democrats took over control of the House, with Nancy Pelosi the leader, and the Senate, with Harry Reid in charge. And yes, Barack Obama was a Senator with the Majority Party.

And where are the jobs now??? The STARTING POINT for the Unemployment Rate is the LABOR PARTICIPATION Rate, which has been consistently between 66% to 67% over the years. But with the Labor Participation Rate Dropping, Millions of Unemployed Americans are No Longer Counted in Calculating the Unemployment Rate, thereby skewing the rate to be lower.

The IRS Scandal will be easy to prove, IF the stories that some groups were asked questions not contained in standard IRS forms are true, the case is open and shut.

As to Obama not knowing, it is such a coincidence that in the groups attacked were opponents of the Administration.

Plus, groups that were inclined to be in agreement with Obama were said to have an easy time gaining favorable IRS Status.

The Stock Market is at historic levels; the unemployment rate has dropped to 7.3%... but then again maybe you were only referring to yourself.

Oh, you voted for him?
And you need to rethink your definition of “failed” because killing Osama bin Laden, getting HCR passed pulling the economy from the edge of total collapse and winning re-election is the opposite of “failed”.

TO RE-ITERATE: The Unemployment rate and the Labor Participation Rate Work Together: Historically, the Labor Participation Rate has been fairly constant, and as a constant, has not been used in painting changes in the economic outlet.

BUT---under Obama, the Labor Participation Rate has dropped, skewing the unemployment rate number.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/04/06/labo...

"And the percentage of working-age adults in the labor force — what's called the participation rate — fell to 63.3 percent last month. It's the lowest such figure since May 1979."

"People without a job who stop looking for one are no longer counted as unemployed. That's why the U.S. unemployment rate dropped in March despite weak hiring. If the 496,000 who left the labor force last month had still been looking for jobs, the unemployment rate would have risen to 7.9 percent in March."

Surely you jest! mittwit is a cowardly draft dodger that thought it was more important to serve his cult than his country. He has made a career of shipping living wage jobs offshore and has nothing but contempt for working americans!

But on Friday, Leno asked Romney whether he believes he might have beaten Obama in the November election if the initial narrative from the administration on the motive behind the attacks had been attributed to terrorism instead of a protest.
“I don’t think it would have changed the election,” said Romney.

I agree with that. Benghazi was not going to be the deciding factor in the election.

As it turned out, it was Hurricane Sandy that moved the key voters towards Obama, as in any crisis, the American People rally to the President initially.

After 9-11, Bushes popularity sky-rocketed and that carried thru to the next Congressional election in 2002. Now, Americans, including myself, feel that his 9-11 response was a failure; a BIG failure.

The Oklahoma Bombing was a game changer for Clinton too!!

In Vietnam, the vote to go to war was almost unanimous, after it was stated that US ships came under attack in the Gulf of Tonkin.

So Romney is correct, Benghazi was tragic, but any negative effects that it might have on Obama were well into the future, past election day.

It collapsed when Obama took office and still hasn't recovered. He's destroying everything. But that is his plan.
