Pretty sure your the dumb ass! Obama sucks and I believe most access cards should be taken away. I for one am tired of supporting lazy ass people who CHOOSE not to work!

Romney has pretty much doomed his campaign with his latest series of gaffes. Like it or not, look forward to another 4 years of the Obama administration.

Yes, it sometimes is.

As a politician nearing the end of a presidential campaign, you have to tread lightly and not attack the voter base. So yes, in this case it was a major gaffe. Alienating the people you're depending on to put you in office is a cardinal sin in the political arena. One would think someone of Romney's stature and experience would show a little more restraint and a tad more savvy than this.
redistribution of wealth

Interesting. But then again I agree with the remarks therein.

Anyone who actually recognizes the disparity in wealth in the United States should actually see the sense in redistribution 'at a certain level'. He isn't promoting haphazardly taking all the millions away from all of the millionaires and randomly scattering all of it like candy thrown from a parade float.

3% of the population controls 97% of the wealth. And the top 1% controls 33% alone. The middle class is collapsing and everyone knows it. I realize almost everyone that posts here is conditioned to hate the welfare leeches and the lazy parasites that collect money just because they work the loopholes. When people hear 'redistribution of wealth' they automatically envision every blue-collar employee somewhere forking out cash to those types to fuel their Access cards. That's a travesty but it's the idea some types hope to press into the voter base.

You may not agree with all of Obama's policies and ideas. I know that I do not. But everything about Mitt Romney just resonates that he's long been a part of the reason that things have deteriorated. Obama simply remains the lesser evil in this election. A little naive and out of touch at times? Sure. But not on the level of Romney, not after everything that has been revealed about him ever since his party pulled the trigger on his nomination. He looks and walks the presidential part, but ultimately he fails nearly as hard as Santorum, Perry or Bachmann in platform.

Maybe in 2016 the Republican party can field a candidate with better solutions, but for this cycle, their pick is a dud. Sadly I don't see a legitimate third party rising up before then either. That's about the only way I see any dramatic change sweeping the nation.

All I want to know is WHAT Obamma has done. If some-one can point to a possitive thing that he has done perhaps I'll listen.

Sure he puts on good speaches but nothing good comes out of it.

When Chrystler and GM took bail-out money, he made Chryltler sell to an Itialin car company, and forced the CEO of GM out, but did nothing to the CEO's of the banks and insurance companies who took way more than these car companies did in hand outs.

The CEO of GM was starting to make some possitive changes, and thought he was doing the right thing by getting some gov. help I guess that decision bit him in the butt.

As far as fixing the economy, if he really wanted to do some good he could have the gas prices lowered, but his solouting to high gas prices is to buy a NEW car that gets 30-40mpg. Obamma is so out of touch with the lower-upper class people (who pay the most in taxes and make too much for help but not quite enough to save for retirement), because these cars cost any where from $35,000 to $45,000. Not excatly prices the majority of people can afford.

Home heating oil is another matter that should not be more than $1.50/gal.

How is universal health care going to work, when medicare is almost bank rupt. I do agree something needs done with health care but this is not the solution. Limit law suits to gross neglegance, but that won't happen, why, Obamma worked for an ambulance chacing law firm before he got into polotics, so why would he get rid of his own bread and butter?

Socialism and Communism are defenitaly not the soloution, we need normal people in office and limit all government terms to no more than eight years. Do away with the loby groups and most labor unions, that will fix this country.

I too would seriously like to know why people choose to vote for Obama. And how is he the lesser of the two evils? What has he done to make people think that he is a good leader? How has he helped the economy? I have yet to hear a real intelligent answer. I am Independent on most of my political views but absolutely a fiscal conservative. Our broken economy under Bush's reign has now multiplied and no one seems to care. Our deficit has doubled in the 3 plus years of Obama in office. Can we as a nation really afford to have it double again in the next 4 years?
And who really cares about Romney's taxes? What exactly do you think it will tell you if you have his lifetime of tax records? That he makes a lot of money? That he doesn't pay as much in taxes that some think he should? I would take a financially successful business man to run my economy any day over the other option.
Also, in response to Obama's response on the second debate over pension. Sure he can claim that Romney's pension is larger than his but let me assure you he is no broke hommie!

You have no idea what a communist is, otherwise you would have called him a socialist, and there is nothing wrong with a socialist government, look at Germany, Britain, hell, even Canada.
O.k. socialist democracies, all the Scandinavian countries as well.

And I too, wonder why anyone would vote for Romney, why does he say that he can create jobs, when his entire business life as a venture capitalist, he bought "under performing companies", closed them down, took the assets, and then sold them, costing many jobs. I'm positive he shipped more jobs out of the country than he ever created. Off shore bank accounts, Chinese investments, that's enough for me, he's another BeBe Reboso (Nixon's buddy) and since Romney can't even tell American citizens just exactly what his plan is, I'm not buying a "Piggy in a poke". I know that Obama is not broke, but he made his money by earning it through work. He had student loans, just like a lot of us. Romney on the other hand inherited most of his wealth. He missed out on VietNam, and made his income, not by working, but by maniplulating companies, and tax loopholes. Running a successful Olympics is not good enough for me. He has no foriegn policy experience at all, and for me, he's not good enough to be my President. And look who he picked for a V.P.!!!!! Worse than the McCain/Palin ticket! He should have picked Papa Smurf, that would have been a better choice.

Welfare spending jumps 32% during Obama’s presidency.

The congressional report showed that welfare is the single largest federal expense in the United States and is more than national defense, Social Security and Medicare. Taking into account federal (83 low-income assistance programs) and state welfare spending, the grand total is $1.03 trillion.

Hey, are any of them single? Or an equally rich Republican will do. I just love George Soros's accent. And that he came to the U.S. penniless, and made a fortune for himself. He remembers where he came from. In fact, none of the above were born with a silver spoon in the mouths, they are self-made. I admire that, a brain and talent.

What the hell does that mean, "Like it or not"? I'm sorry, but most of the Clearfieldians are voting against their own best interests, because, what's the median income before taxes? How many make over 250 K a year. That's like 10 to 15 people's yearly salary. And most people are living at the poverty level or close to it. Take your earnings, deduct your mortgage or rent, your fuel costs, car insurance, gasoline, food, and an occasional night out, what's left? Those with child support and student loans, wow, I don't know how you do it! Oh, yeah, I forgot, you're maxing out your credit cards. Those of you with children, I really don't know how you're managing to support yourselves! Some of you have adult kids living at home.....and that is not Obama's fault!

Most Clearfieldians think they are middle class, but, hey, they are not. There is nothing shameful in saying, I am college educated and am working class. Just because you wear a suit and tie does not make you middle class. Just because you own your own home does not make you middle class. Clearfield is made up of poor,(non-working) poor working class, lower middle working class, some middle class, and a very small percentage of upper middle class. Truly wealthy? None. I doubt there are many people with too much left over after they pay their bills, and that is not Obama's fault. I don't see too many thriving businesses, except for Clearfield Pharmacy, the Goodwill Store, and Wal-Mart, and that is a sad situation for Clearfield, and that is not Obama's fault. He doesn't tell you where to shop, does he?

Come on, people. Vote FOR, not against your own best interests. Especially since Romney does not even have a game plan, if he were to be elected, which he is NOT. Would you buy a house or a car sight unseen? I'm sorry, I like to see what I'm getting into BEFORE I sign on the dotted line.
Clearfieldians, vote like you are part of the real world, not some isolated time-warped "land that time forgot". We may be rural, we may be poor in contrast to other towns and cities in the U.S., but let's not be stupid.

Like I've stated more than once, if forced to choose between the two, I'll side with the sitting president. Sadly, right now it feels little better than the Republican primaries where everyone is a bad choice and you have no option but to select the one that will provide minimal pain, or at least the one that is least insane.

Tension is getting out-of-hand everywhere. It's become rather clear that to not be 100% on the bandwagon of one candidate will draw venom from both sides.
