As a partisan Democrat, I am really happy about Tricky Mitt picking Paul Ryan because that gives us a lot better shot at getting Pelosi back as Speaker, picking off an extra Senate seat or 2, and giving the Obama/Biden ticket another 4 years. Romney/Ryan = the ticket of America's ruin.

Obama has ruined this country and we cant let him get in another 4 yrs. He will not let us drill for our own oil. That would put so many people to work all over the country. He would not approve the pipeline from Canada. Again, putting alot of people to work. He keeps complaining about how the republicans are keeping him from getting stuff done. I'm glad they are..they're keeping him from screwing things up more. Just for your information...did you know democrats held the house and senate the first 2 yrs of his office...and they didnt bother to come up with a plan for debts and spending..and now that republics have control of house..it's their fault. Instead of watching the mainstream news...maby you should do some of your own homework and check stuff out for yourself. you'll see he is a danger to our way of life. He's a communist. Check out who his mentors were. We need a president who will help out country not be reliant on other countries. We need to tie the hands of the EPA so we can start reopening factories so we can produce our own products. Quit getting all this crap from China. Obama wants to shut down all the coal factories...WTF!!! Do you realize how many people would be out of work all over the country?! We need our coal, we need our oil. Wind and solar are not gonna sustain this country.

Are you nuts? As bad as things are now, if we put a republican back in office with their money grubbing ways, the middle class will never never be able to dig our way out of the mess we are in. The problem with the Democrats is they care to much and let the Republicans get away with taking and taking, while the middle class suffers more and more.

Are you nuts - we can not take another 4 years of a president that does nothing except talk. America will be bankrupt if Obama gets re-elected. We need jobs and a balance budget and Obama has done nothing for either one of these two issues. He has been flying all over the world telling foreign countries how hateful Americans are. We have had enough of obama - time to go to rebuild America.

Well it sounds like to me that you don't know what your talking about and just like to bitch. If you think for one minute that Romney is going to work harder for the middle class or poor than Obama, then I know you don't have a clue what you're talking about. Romney has stolen from and made a living off the backs of the middle class and poor all his working life. Why do you think he would be any differant as our president? I know, that if you live in GC you have to be part of the working class or poor, so what do you think Romney can do to help you. He wants to go back to the old trickle down (Republican)way of thinking and says he don't raise taxes, but wants to give tax breaks to the wealthiest americans. He himself cheats the government out of taxes by keeping his money in the Camin Ilands. He only pays taxes on capital gains from invested money. Which I truely cannot understand why he thinks this is ok with the average american, because Romney in his lifetime could never spend the money he has right now, why wouldn't he want to pay at least the same percentage of taxes you and I pay to his country. It couldn't hurt him and just maybe if people who are in this situation did pay their fair share the country would be better off for it. Their country! The same one they are saying they want to serve! The same country they will die in and still have more money than they could possibly spend if they had another life time to do it.

Like I said in an earlier post...if you quit watching and listening on the radio to the main stream media (which is liberal) you may learn something about Obama. He said once in a speach "I am my brothers' keeper". LIES LIES LIES! He refused to send his poor brother in Kenya $1000 for help on a hospital bill for his kid. What a sympathetic man that Obama is. He is only here to help himself and his wife and taking as many vacations he can on our dime. The sooner he's out the better.

I think it's funny how everyone blames Obama for this country's problems. Fact is we had a bad economy when Bush was in office. Obama was left to clean up his mess. Mit is a fake and sounds like Bush.... Promise after promise as the vacation at their ranch or beach house. I believe Obama can make positive changes in the US. Change takes time and I'm willing to keep him in office for another 4 years. My vote Obama!

Everyone can't keep blaming Bush for the 8.6% unemployment. Everyone can't keep blaming Bush for the 16 TRILLION dollars in debt the country is in. Obama is the one who spent our billions and billions of tax dollars on bailing companies out. Especially his "baby" Solaris. Everybody remember that? Everyone was saying.."oh yeah, lets give them all this money so they can make solar panels for us all...YAY!!!" Ya know what? They went bankrupt. I want my tax dollars back for that crap! We have nothing to show for Obama's crazy spending. We bailed out GM..they're getting ready to file bankruptsy again..hmmm..imagine that.

Obama can't run the companies for them ya know. His intentions were good with Solaris, but he did not start the bail out process, Busch did and the Republican's spearheaded that before he even was in office. It was left to him to make it happen while the country waited for it to do what everyone was saying it would do and that never happened. He only followed through on what all the experts at the time said would help the oncomming recession and depression if the banks were allowed to fall. Here is something to think about.

Salary of retired US Presidents ..........180,000 FOR LIFE

Salary of House/Senate ..........174,000 FOR LIFE This is stupid

Salary of Speaker of the House ..........223,500 FOR LIFE This is really stupid

Salary of Majority/Minority Leaders .......$193,400 FOR LIFE Ditto last line

Average Salary of a teacher ..........40,065

Average Salary of Soldier DEPLOYED IN AFGHANISTAN .......$38,000

I think we can see where the cuts should be made!
