So not true. I don't know why so many people get the impression that people who have are in some other world and don't "know" and don't "feel". With Romney's and Ryan's brilliance there's no telling what they could do for the "people".
Agree

Ryan is a highly intelligent man and will do an excellent job!
I agree. I believe he and Romney could really "get down" with our current situation. With the way things are now, it seems like the problems are just flying all over the place, out of control and Obama can't get it together. I believe Romney and Ryan can get to the point and FOCUS, then do something about it!!!!!

For one thing, we're not going to be able to get our energy situation straightened out, like not going to get the pipeline for one example.

That is no true. The pipeline will most likely be built. The main concern that the Obama Administration had was that is was going through some sensitive enviromental areas and when another route can be found, it most likley will be build.
However, to think that is going to solve our energy problem is naive and misleading.
We have got to become less dependent on fossil fuels. I don't know the solution, but one must be found.

I am not going to worry about it for four years. He won so all we can do is wait and watch and see what all happens. It's out of our hands now so I'm not worrying about it or saying any more.

The fact that some young people - and not so young - are unwilling to take responsibility for themselves has very little, if nothing, to do with President Obama. Welfare has been in effect many decades and I suspect it will continue no matter who the President is. Funding is done through Congress, not the President. Why aren't you upset with them??
We all know that President Obama doesn't condone laziness and depending on the government. That is something that the Republicans attempt to pound into our heads at every turn because it works politically. We are smarter than that - or at least, we should be.
We are not going to be taken over by some other country. If we were in that vulnerable position, I can assure you that Mitt Romney can't help that - he is absolutely clueless about foreign
policy. He doesn't even know that Israel has socialized medicine. He wants to "kick the can" down the road on Mid-East conflicts and hope it works itself out - are you serious - who could be that stupid? He doesn't even know that Iran has their own coastline on the Caspian Sea. He is one of the few candidates that makes Sarah Palin look smart - how scary is that?
What amazes me that there are so many of the "47%" that he speaks of are going to vote for him because they are not even aware that they receive government assessment or even worse, don't know that he is denigrating them. Sad, sad.
I think either they didn't know the issues or were not very smart. They are now probably wanting the middle class to pay higher taxes and the wealthy pay less.

I find it so interesting that Republicans and Mitt Romeny are complaining about the 47 percent that depend on the government for everything and say they are Obama supporters. In this 2012 election, Mitt Romney will win by large double digits because of votes from these people - here in Kentucky. They will vote for him because they are afraid of their guns being taken away, they oppose same-sex marriage, carry their Bibles everywhere, are anti-abortion, think he cares about the coal industry. The less educated, the more likely you are to vote for Mitt Romney - that is not speculation - that is a fact. Look at the polls here in Kentucky. The Red States, where more money comes back into the state from taxes than is paid in, will all vote Romney.
He is denigrating the very people that are supporting him. The Blue states get less back than they pay in, median income is higher, the voters are more educated. Not very smart on his part, seems to me. What if some of those people start listening to what he is saying and actually figure it out!!
You are so right!!!!!Just wish more people understood that!!!!!!!

He wasn't trying to be negative, he was trying to present the truth to the people to let them know exactly where we stand. I guess the truth hurts and nobody wants to believe it. They would rather go on believing that everything is o.k. but they'll have to wake up one day whether they want to or not.
Oh, I guess we are all stupid. We did hear Romney say that 47% of Americans were bums and that he wasn't going to worry about them. Now he won't have to. Thank goodness!!!

You missed the entire point - a lot of those 47 percent are voting for Mitt Romney. They are not voting for President Obama. He is denigrating the very people that are voting for him - plain and simple.
Of course, not all of them are, but a lot of those very people that he is talking about are right here in Wolfe County and they are voting Romney/Ryan. I know because they tell me that and they are some of the poorest and the ones that benefit the most from government help. They are voting on social issues - not their own best interest. They are either stupid or have extreme heart-felt convictions about abortion, same-sex marriage, etc.
They don't know any better!!!

Well they probably are and that's good. I just wish everyone would quit twisting everything Mitt says around trying to confuse the people. The thing is, when Mitt says something sometimes he just hasn't prepared as well as Obama for what is coming out of his mouth and it might not sound as smoooooooooth but probably is a whole lot more truthful than anything Obama says.
Why don't you tell us about all these lies Obama has told. I have watched closely and have not seen them? Just make sure you tell the truth.

Am I happy that Romney picked Ryan? Yes! Ryan didn't carry his own state or win in his own hometown. Romney lost Massachusetts where he was governor by double digits. That ought to tell you something. Ryan wanted to make Medicare a voucher program which would have put many senior citizens out of getting health care. They were terrible candidates but of course, the Republicans party is the party of the rich and their interests, not normal American citizens. People need to get that through their heads. They wanted major cuts in welfare programs which would have devastated communities like Campton and other poor towns. Many businesses would have gone under without government money coming in. I really don't understand why people would vote against their own interests and be o.k. with the rich feeding at the trough in Washington. I think we need required economic classes and civic classes in school. But of course many people are just plain racist and that is all that mattered. They were willing to cut off their nose to spite their face.

It is very obvious that you are an idiot.

Obamacare will permanently change the political culture of this country. There will be no going back. America will become a less productive, less wealthy nation. What wealth remains will have to be plowed into Obamacare -- to the delight only of the tens of thousands of government bureaucrats administering it.

There won't be one moment marking the end of America. Everything will just gradually get worse, like trains and the tax code, until a bustling, prosperous nation is as distant a memory as pleasurable train travel and one-page tax returns.

The reason we have Obamacare is not because the public was clamoring for the federal government to take over health care. It's because the Democrats had 60 senators. In the frozen ideology of the left, it doesn't matter if anyone wants government health care.

Democrats had been waiting around for 50 years to win huge majorities in the House and Senate and the presidency, so they could check off this box on "FDR's Unfinished Business."

Unlike all other major legislation in the nation's history, Obamacare was passed exclusively by one party that had just won an aberrationally large majority in Congress. Not a single Republican in either the House or Senate voted for it.

As soon as all Americans have been thrown off their employer-provided insurance plans and are forced to start depending on the government for health care, Republicans will never be able to repeal it.

The private insurance market will be gone. Most Americans won't be able to conceive of getting health care that doesn't come from the government -- just as people in the Soviet Union couldn't imagine how they'd get bread if the government didn't provide it.

Democrats own it.

Can't wait for the health care to kick in. I certainly can't afford over $1200 a month premium now because of a pre-existing condition. My mother loves Medicare. But I'm certain you don't. You probably would have liked Ryan's voucher program which would have paid a small portion and left seniors hanging out on a limb. Roosevelt's social security has been a blessing for millions over the years. I hope the private isurance market will be gone.
