1 idiot made the comment and you looped anyone who is a republican into the mix. Joe Biden has made racist remarks in front of a camera,...should I take it that all democrats are racist?

I will agree that if anyone is still supporting that particular idiot then they are just as big of an idiot.

I voted for Romney, but I do believe Obama will win!

I was raised on the idea of "an honest days work for an honest days pay!" Not - "what can this president/government do for ME?"

32 million on food stamps in 2009, 47 million today! Millions have made government handouts their way of life, insted of seeking employment.

The "takers" will eventually outnumber the "givers" no matter who is president. It just seems to be picking up speed under Obama.

His entire political agenda is molded by the Ayn Rand policy of Individualism vs collectivism. Which is an extremely radical policy that our nation isn't capable of surviving under.

Just a little history on Mitt Romney for those of you that watch WAYYYYY too much ABC news

After going to both Harvard Business School and Harvard Law School simultaneously he passed the Michigan bar but never worked as an attorney. As a venture-capitalist Romney's first major business deal involved investing in a start up office supply company with one store in Massachusetts. That company named Staples now has over 2,000 stores and employs over 90,000 people nation wide. Romney and Bain capital would go on to perform similar miracles with companies like Domino's, Sealy, Brookstone, The Weather Channel, Burger King, Warner Music Group, Dollarama, Home Depot and many many others.....very literally helping to expand these business's and create jobs.

Ok let's do some math. Volunteer campaign worker for his dad's gubernatorial campaign=1 year, Unpaid intern in the Governor's office=8 years, Mormon Missionary in Paris=2 years, Unpaid bishop and state president for his church=10 years, No salary as president of the Olympics=3 years, No salary as MA governor=4 years,....that adds up to 28 years of unpaid service to his country, community and/or church. In 2011 Romney gave just over $4 Million dollars to various charities,...just under %19 of his income for that year,...Obama gave %1 and Joe Biden gave $300,...yeah,..thats 3 Benjamins for a percentage of %0.0013,.... Anyone see a character issue here?

His 4 years as governor in MA saw the lowest unemployment rates,..above average education scores and a completely balanced budget.

4 years as President of the United States, Obama has been unable to reduce unemployment rates to anything lower than when he took office,...has increased the national debt by %60 and has failed to achieve even half of his 2008 campaign promises.

This state will vote Obama again,...mostly because of either completely misguided views or a complete lack of ability to make up ones own mind on the FACTS.

kind of easier to do when you grow up a millionaire and your daddy pays for everything for you. and durring those years of unpaid service he was still drawing money from his buisnesses. thats how politics is. he did those things to open the right doors and kiss the right asses. its obviouse how much of an asskisser he is, as his opinion on everything changes constantly. at the second debate he made a statement about abortion HIS OWN CAMPAIGN fact checked and prooved was wrong as far as his official stance. he says what people want to hear.

Just a little history on Mitt Romney for you, you ignorant refucktard that watches WAYYYYY too much FauX “news”

Romney intentionally failed to take all of his “charitable” tax deductions for 2011 thereby FALSLEY increasing the number to 14%, actual number is 9%, of which he will surely file an amendment –after- the election to get all his money back. The ONLY proof he offers for the “last 20 years” is a letter from his friend and accountant. ANYONE making over 47k a year pays 25% or more. Romneys “dividends” are from foreign investments and held by his so called “blind trust” which is controlled by his personal family attorney, and tucked away in tax free accounts in the Caiman Islands, Bahamas, Switzerland and Germany. Tax issues are complicated and Romney is counting on ignorant people like you to believe his LIES.

Yeah it is easier,....would have been even easier to just sit back,..travel the world,..snort coke,...hire high priced hookers and say #$%# the world....instead the man actually gave his time and money to help his community, church and country.

I apologize that your "Community Organizer" was not the messiah,...he was an absolute failure,...now you can look forward to promoting Hitlery in 2016. I bet she can top Bill's sex scandals.

Just a little history on Mitt Romney for you, you ignorant refucktard that watches WAYYYYY too much FauX “news”

Willard brags about what he considers a great accomplishment.“At the Olympics I learned how to deal with the Federal Government.” Romney would have voters believe he used his expertise as a businessman to get the Olympics back on track. What actually happened, however, was that Romney hired sixteen lobbyists -- from five separate D.C. lobbying firms – to solicit taxpayers' subsidies from Congress . The 2002 Winter Games cost American tax payers $1,300,000,000 dollars. That’s right 1.3 Billion Dollars, more than ALL previous U.S. Olympics combined. Federal bailout in hand, Romney then used tax dollars to rescue the troubled games. This wasn't about corporate know-how or the skills of turnaround artist; this was a straightforward process involving Romney, lobbyists, and a truckload of taxpayer money.

Willy Romney contends his money making as CEO-Owner-Chairman of the board-Sole shareholder of Bain qualifies him to be President of the United States.

Ampad (founded 1888) is just one of the many companies destroyed by Romney.

Romney/Bain’s handling of Ampad illustrates how the rich extract money from these deals and leave behind wounded workers and Main Street shops.

Romney bought Ampad in 1992 and added SCM Office Supplies to the holdings two years later. Like many leveraged buyout deals, these were financed with loans secured by the purchased companies’ assets. Within hours after buying SCM, Romney fired every one of its 350 workers in Marion, Ind. Romney, through Ampad, told the shocked and terrified workers they could apply for their former positions if they wanted them back – at less pay, fewer benefits and worse working conditions. One way leveraged buyout firms like Romney owned and controlled Bain make money is by taking it from workers – slashing their pay, benefits and pensions. Romney invested $5 million in Ampad and took more than $100 million out The company went into bankruptcy in 1999, holding a debt load of more than $400 million. Willy's return on his $5 million investment was $100 million. But everything Willy did was legal. It’s Romney, working for the wealthy while double crossing Main Street Business & hard working American citizens. When Ampad went under, it owed $182.6 million to its suppliers across America. The bankruptcy left only $328,633 to pay nearly 1,300 unsecured creditors – that worked out to 10 cents for every $10 Ampad owed. Below is an example of the 1300 hundred businesses screwed by Romney,

Technical Coatings Laboratory, owed $125,191.20 and paid in bankruptcy $237.03
Services Plus Inc., owed $12,064.71, paid $22.84
Crown Vantage, owed $32,155.26, paid $60.89
Lakeway Container Inc., owed $47,143.56 paid $89.26
Olympic Adhesives, owed $6,566, paid $12.43
American Chain and Gear, owed $505.54, paid 96 cents
Green Bay Packaging Inc., owed $75,551.92, paid $137.37 Springfield Electric, owed $3,919.88, paid $7.23
American Coffee Break Service, owed $1,349.73, paid $2.56
Economy Plumbing Co., owed $1,505.69, paid $2.85
Hohner Stitching Products, owed $2,095.76, paid $3.97
Mount Tom Box Co. Inc., owed $34,351.96, paid $65.04

These Main Street shops and businesses are the heart of American communities, supporting the local United Way, Little League teams and Memorial Day parades. Debts never paid mean less money for them to hire their own workers, fewer dollars for them to contribute to their communities and a higher probability they’ll be forced into bankruptcy.

An "ignorant fucktard" is one that cannot properly debate a position without name calling. I am sorry that your messiah has ran up the deficit and national debt. I am sorry that he did not pay your mortgage like he promised. I am sorry that the cost of living has increased faster during his tenure. I am sorry that the cost of insurance premiums have gone up. I am sorry that unemployment has not gotten any better. I am sorry that MORE troops are overseas in harms way rather than less. I am sorry that YOU WERE LIED TO AND CONTINUE TO BELIEVE EVEN MORE LIES.

Also I am sorry that you hate people that are successful,...must be easy when you are a welfare baby.
