Senior citizen you still havent answered any of my questions, like what job does Romney have for you? Instead you post some stupid list of first for Obama, with ignorant things for one to concern themselves with. Like Obama was the first to say america not a christian nation, it wasnt, it is a nation made up of diverse religions and Romney is not a christian he is a Mormon. And he got nasa because we are in budget crisis, you think that would appease the cut and slash republicans. Please stop telling me what Obama has failed at if your not going to tell me Romney is going to better situation. If Romney had some detail plan on how to create jobs I could look at and vertify, he would have my vote, but he doesnt, all he has is Obama failures.

I didnt not vote for Obama to help his brother in a hut in Africa. I am one hundred percent sure if Romney is elected he will help all of his family and friends, that is what I am scared of, a return to good ole boy system. I guess it is the presidents personal responibilty to guard the ambassdors of nations, it sounds like to me someone else is to blame. It sounds like to me republicans need to take their own advice and take some personal responibilty and stop looking to blame Obama and democrats for all of your problems.

Yes sir'ee.... if you get in in an Email....OR read it on the net (copy & paste too !!) It's GOT TO BE TRUE!!!

"First President to say that America was not a Christian nation.".....
No, that would have been George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Adams, Madison, etc!! This country was founded on Religious FREEDOM--NOT Christianity. The majority of our Forefathers were in deed 'Deists'. "In God we trust" was adopted as the official motto of the United States in 1956. It was FIRST added to paper money in 1957. While God is 'central' in judeo-christian faiths, and in many others... Christian is a derivative of Christ... which is not a widely held except in the Christian faith. America was founded on the Freedom of Choice, and to not HAVE a MAIN religion. So ALL could practice as the truly believe---without pressure to conform to ANY group.

So it is OK for Obama to be for Obama only when he said he is for all people - is his brother not a person? Why has he not donated as much to charity as Romney has? He is supposed to be for the American people and he has divided America - he has taken us back to 1960. We are still a majority Christian Nation but the Islams are growing fast in America thanks to Obama. Obama took God out of the DNC and he has stated he is a Muslim and I just read Obama and Hillary want to help Lybia.

If Romney gets in office I just might get my job back since I got laid off because of OBAMACARE and Obama TAXES. These companies seen themselves going in a hole so they had to let us go. As far as you looking to see if Romney's plan will put us back to work - you should have Obama to START ON A PLAN. He has not accomplished one plan - or should I say read one play since he delegated his authority to Reid (no taxes for 12 years LIAR) and Pelosi (wait to see what the OBAMACARE DOES). Now why has Obama not released his school papers - and what name would you find him under if he did??? Will the real Obama stand up.

DO YOU REMEMBER THE COMMENT THAT IS EVEN ON OUR MONEY - One Nation Under GOD? I have no idea what you are trying to say about all religions - are you saying they DID NOT WORSHIP GOD? Think back to those days - these were religions that worship GOD - not some idol. Any religion that worship GOD is a Christion religion.

No way did any other president beside Obama has ever said this was NOT A CHRISTIAN NATION.

Yeah i think he saved the auto industry and turned the war in a plausible direction until the stalemates began. Not to mention finally getting the war veterans some adequate care
I just found out Obama done the bail out for GM and the JOBS WENT TO CHINA. Good bail for our Country and our TAX DOLLARS. Not too bright this president.

Bump if you paid over 30k income taxes, you and your wife got to be making the big bucks, and in your case it makes sense to cut entitlements in favor of tax breaks. But the average joe it makes complete sense to vote democrat, since the average joe only makes 30k a year not 150k. So suck it up , finish your lines, and pay your taxes because we got Obama for another 4 years, lol. Maybe Mitt can hide your money for you in Costa Rica.

What job does Romney have for you, please answer this senior citizen and if you can I vow to change my vote to Romney. But I doubt he has one for you.
I lost my job was because the business I was working for said they had to let us go because of the new taxes on small business that Obama is pushing and Obamacare. If Romney gets in small business will start hiring again and I just might get my job back.

Change your vote and help us get back to work.

I just hope you and your wife are saving that money you are making and putting it up for retirement, because if you vote for Romney, you will sure need it. Us poor folks who don't make enough money to put away are the ones in trouble when you place your vote. Think about the folks who work their lives away and can never afford to put money back and still have to pay the same percentage you do and still make ends meet. They would like to have programs in place that will help when they retire, expecially programs they pay into their whole lives and Romney wants to do away with. Romney is never going to win this election anyway. He can't stop saying stupid stuff and I can't wait to watch and see what he will do in the debate on Wednesday night. He always comes through for the media.

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.
You have got to be kidding me! Do you recall at all that our economic downfall started BEFORE Obama took office. First of all he put us at war with Iraq because he wanted to kill Hussein whatever his last name was, because he had threatened his father, not because he had anything to do with 911. Clinton left us with a balanced budget but Bush destroyed that all leaving our economy so bad that NO President could have taken care of it in 4 yrs. No one Democrat or Republican want to drill for oil or the alaska pipeline. Clinton tried but was blocked by Republicans voting against him. So before you make a statement like Obama has ruined this country think of your motivation to say that. Are you perhaps a little racist?

You did not like the truth so as a typical DEM - you throw out slurs - Obama has trained you Dems to twist a situation around to the way you like instead of hearing the truth and if that does not work then just LIE.

Senior citizen you need some obamacare because your delusional. What is the truth? That gas was 1.85 before Obama was in office, that is lie. Half the facts you conservatives make claim to are delusional and always tied to some conspiracy theory. I remember the famous Obama is a part of some secret terrorist cell, I am sure you believe that. What is wrong with this country is that type of backwards thinking, the type of thinking, were you blame not having a job on obamacare. If you like Romney cast your vote but when your still unemployed please take personal responsibility.

And your right senior citizen, Obama stoped by the house the other night for more training, he said it was needed for national security. I enjoy his training courses but he keeps insisting I wear a jacket of bombs, it makes me feel uncomfortable but he reassure me that the training is needed. Does Romney train you conservatives? Oh he doesnt need to, that is what Rush is for!

Sorry you got the wrong person at your house - Obama did not listen to our Ambassador when he said he was worried about the terrorist activity that was taking place = Obama is not doing any training for national security. Maybe the training was for him brewing his beer in the White House.

NO Obamacare threw us Senior Citizens under the bus. You know you just might want to check out Obamacare because you will get OLD also and you need to know what Obamacare does for old people - just might find a shock you won't like.

I know what the truth is and you haven't been speaking it. Obama hasn't trained me for anything I was taught by my parents to think for myself. I listen to what people have to say and read what is available and then make my decision.

Senior you are so clueless, my response was an attempt at sacrasm, to show insane your commemts are. Like wtf said, we our freethinkers, no one coach us on how to think, we do not have a Rush Limbaugh or O reily or a hannity to dictate what are opinions should be. Obama is horrible president because he would not help his brother is the delusional thought process I am talking about, always back to that. Plenty of reasons not to vote for Obama in favor of Romney but your reasoning makes utterly nosense. And obamacare is an exact carbon copy of Romneycare, Romney is the brainchild and in the debates he even said he would elminate all of the provisions only the things he doesnt favor and that havent went into law. So he plans on allowing you to keep your kid on the plan until 26 along with a host of other provisions. So give us a break and stop making these tried arguments why Obama has ruin this country, I dont remember this country on a blazin path of glory under his precessdor Bush. Romney only promise is to restore this country to the Bush days of lowering taxes on the rich, more war and business as usual.
