You know about that Romneycare. Don't even lie. It is the Romneycare that got us here in the first place. Vote FOR Obama, not AGAINST Obama! What's wrong with you? Seriously. I mean that flag waves for him! I mean his double-take pants are ON fire for the cost! You don't even care. Liars! All of you. I met Romneycare years ago on a political forum where I took out an ad for them, and let me tell you, it didn't wave for MTY flag! Monty here and I want to say that political theaters have to ripen in a certain way. And when the flakes are brown and have a golden hue, are th ebest you YOU!!

I am amazed how the network media can influence the opinion of the American populous so much in favor or against one candidate or the other regardless of that particular candidates record over the course their political term/s in office. In essence creating the way it is rather than simply reporting the way it is. It is unfathomable to me how so many are unable to think for themselves but rather need their thoughts, feelings and opinions outlined for them by the network media.

is a crime to falsely report or lie on the air per FCC regulations but yet we have media outlets editing video and creating news instead of reporting it. when the MEDIA is held criminally accountable for thier actions, the sheeple might wake up and begin to think for themselves. I do not hold out much hope for the mass but for me and my house, i make up my mind as my opinion is truly the only thing i own.

I, too, do not hold out much hope for the masses, but can only be concerned for, like you, what I truly own and hope that one day the network media machine will have their feet held to the fire, and the masses wake up.

I find it amusing, during all this politicizing, how one candidate with the aid of the national media networks can demonize their opponent with video snippets featuring comments which are then taken out of context, but when comments, are aired about recent failed domestic or foreign policy that cast themselves in an unfavorable light they have audacity to cry "foul".

While this dog and pony show rolls along, another soldier in Afghanistan has his legs blown off.
No problem though, the consumers, formerly citizens, drive around with their ribbons on their cars, and the movie stars put out an infomercial claiming they are watching the soldiers backs, and the talk radio commandos are pushing for more wars, but you won’t see them getting out of their chairs to go patrol the grape rows in Afghanistan, where there is an amputee a day out of one brigade.

Hard to imagine Romney could fly more drones, and obliterate more civilians than obambo, but it is possible when you consider the military budget of the U.S.

When you think of that budget, we ought to be winning a war a day, for that price. Nope. For some reason, the undeclared wars drag on, and we get our soldiers slaughtered.

Don’t worry boys, the politicians, Bernanke’s global bankers (Bankastan), the movie stars, the generals, and the colonels got your backs. Their version of “got your back,” is just a little different than the way George Washington used to do it.

Jobs are better left to the Red Queen (Lewis Carroll’s) than to Republicans. In the end, we won’t have smaller government or greater independence; we will have a modern feudal system of mandates, without rights, security or the safety nets of protection that even the old manor lords provided.

Macroeconomic policy is so distorted and has so many shills that it easily muddles its own proven truths, confusing its judgments. John Wesley, the English theologian, got it right:“the impressions man receives from the natural world do not correspond to the truth of things.”

Health care is such a large part of the economic pot that Republicans continue to create imaginary crisises to steal the money for the private sector without providing services by going through the backdoor. These doors are named “choice,”“flexibility,”“partne rships,” but are really passageways to reduced coverage at “higher” costs. Paul Ryan is bitter because he is confronted with things that he can’t honestly explain, beginning with his budget and extending to Medicaid.

One factor alone determines jobs: demand. Not business confidence or political uncertainity. Not tax cuts, deficits, or debt. Demand alone creates and sustains work. If no one wants to buy it, no one will be hired to build it, sell it or deliver it, or create new updates for it.

It’s not a mystery or alchemy about how to create jobs: increase demand. Yet the key element of prosperity for working families is one Romney ignores.

It looks like we might be returning to 2008.
Thursdays WSJ article, on private equity firms "Debt Fuels a Dividend Boom."
Bain Capital and Carlyle Group are among the companies adding debt to companies they own in order to fund payouts to themselves.

The deals are known as "dividend recapitalizations." Private equity owned companies raise cash by issuing debt, the proceeds are distributed as dividends.

We saw this during the buyout phase of the 2000s and it looks as if it is going on again. These private equity firms buy profitable companies, load them up with debt, take a big payout and then issue an IPO on the stock market for the suckers to buy, and also profit from the sale of the stock. The failure rate of these companies is far above the normal rate.

Willard has made it a mission to project himself as a ethical honest business man, but he is as vicious as any of the group of private equity investors, including Michael Milken, Charles Keating, and Charles Hurwitz. Hang on to your wallet when he is around.

We have several months of evidence documenting the lies of Willard, I can not understand what makes people think he will not do the same if he is elected.
The public does not seem to be able to distinguish between honorable and dishonorable people. They elected Nixon when they had as decent a man to ever run in George McGovern, and we can see how the country fared under him. Now we have a similar choice and we can see just what a short memory the public has.

Under Romney, the debt burden per capita in Massachusetts was the highest of any state in the nation. He raised or created more than 1,000 taxes and fees on people across the state, while 278 wealthy residents in the state got a tax break. And Massachusetts plummeted to 47th out of 50 in job creation.

What does it say that the people who know Mitt Romney best trust him least? He is trailing by 20 points or more in the state where he was governor.

facts do not phase republicans. they live in a bubble that keeps echoing all the nonsense they're fed. people that agree on voter regulations instead of opening the roles to every citizen are a danger to this republic, but you'll never get through. they're just not listening. i for one am through trying. you can't fix stupid.
