<quoted text>It does matter who is the POTUS. They install the Czars, in charge of certain divisions of the US. They come back with their recommendation to the POTUS. A.G.(Czar) Eric Holder hid and is hiding what really happened, on calls that he and Obummer made. 3 1/2 years have past. The blaming of the past administration need to stop. Solutions fix things, blaming allows, a bad decision to continue. Nothing will ever get fixed by blaming. That is why we are no better than we were 4 years ago.
No.

The president of the United States is an ornament. The people who cause problems are congress and every other politician who are self-motivated instead of working for the people.

Much like a business corporation. The CEO or president is a fixture while the real people in charge are the board of directors and the stockholders per se.

If you honestly feel electing Romney is going to change the way our system of government has operated for well over a century then as I said you really don't know what these people do.

Think this through before you respond, every election the same promises are made more jobs, better education for our children and lower taxes. EVERY ELECTION and none of that ever changes.

The government can't promise nor create more jobs. If they did radicals would call it socialism and others would say the politicians were corruptly involved or profiting from all the new businesses. Next technology is changing the way we do things and people are losing jobs because of it. With email and cell phones the mail system has suffered. With digital cameras the film industry has suffered. And the biggest reason we haven't developed fuel cells for automobiles is because that would tank the oil industry. Sure we would still make plastics and oils for other uses, but the billions of gallons used would drop if we used fuel cells or electric powered autos.

Education - the government really can't improve education. There really is no way to improve 2+2=4 Is there a better technique to get that across? Is there a fancier way to instill that into a child's mind? The real problem with education is there are hundreds perhaps thousand, or tens of thousands of teachers who don't care. It's a job where they get weekends off and a paid summers vacation. What do they care if Joe can't read or write. If Joe fails let another teacher handle it. If Joe barely gets by good luck at the next grade level. Finland has a great system. 3 teachers per classroom so that a student can get more help when they need it. Yes that will take more money, but paying 3 teachers decent salaries and broadening our educational system is better than raising the pay for one teacher and the system fails due to lack of attention per student.

As long as the population grows taxes cannot be lowered. More people, more infrastructure. More people, more fire and police. More people, more schools. As long as the population grows so will the tax rate and yes with more people it would seem that the dollars needed would be spread out over more people and lessen the rate per person, but that thinking is pure fiction. The more there is, the more that is needed and the more it will cost. A very easy economics lesson.

Since I have detailed it so well when you go vote do a write-in vote for Terrence Daniels and I'll fix America.

Hey Mr. Netherlands guy: Butt out! Stay out of politics that don't effect you. Now what would a guy from the Netherlands be doing commenting against our great President and Commander in Chief, Mr. Barrack Obama. Your comments are moot. Stick to what's going on in your own country.

So your saying that because I'm broke, the Republican party doesn't want me? I thought they were interested in all U.S citizens. Are they only interested in people with money? I feel ostracized.

They don't want you because you are dumb. Do you blame them? How is the lawn business?

Yes, put out or get out. This is a money game. Only money counts. If you don't have money, you don't count. Think about going to Vegas or a whorehouse, if you don't have money, you can't play and you most certainly can't get off.

The moderation system on this thing is freakin retarded. It thinks the wordwhore is profanity.

Romney appears extremely presidential and thinks American. His body language is positive, NO ARROGANCE, FLAMBOYANCE, DECEIT or DEVIOUS toothy smile as in obama. This administration shouldn't have a problem winning their place in the book of guinness FOR ALL THE LIES!

I say we bring back George Bush and all the other knumnut Republicans who brought the world to the brink of Economic Armageddon out from retirement and let them screw up the progress made by the Obama Administration, just like the Repubs did with Clinton. You go from a huge surplus when Clinton was was president, to a huge deficit when Bush took office. That's why they call them the "deficit Republicans." Repubs are only good for one thing: screwing everything up, and catering to their high-society lifestyles.

You've committed treason vs our Commander in Chief, President Obama. And Lybia, you dumb ripofflicans rallying cry isn't gonna work. Forget about Bush's screw ups so quickly, did ya?. Oh, and Obama and the First Lady had a spat the other day. Will that be another rallying cry for you dumb jerkoffs? Spin, spin, spin, ya gettin' dizzy yet? I am. You're credibility is zero!

What it comes down to is pure hatred and racism. White people don't like that the fact that a black person is President of the U.S. They'll look for any reason to dislike him and seek to discredit him for the most mundane of reasons.

I love black people, especially the women. I can't understand why they are so genetically disposed towards having more junk in the trunk because I'm not a biologist, but I like it nonetheless. All of the white women I've had were sporting rather mundane backsides compared to the black brads I see on TV. I hope that Obama wins so that perhaps the races can continue to grow closer together.
