Obama's not gonna raise taxes on just the rich he's goona hit us lower and middle class people too, I hope you people don't seriously think that Obama is looking to give you all somethin, sorta like that foolish black lady in Florida, who after he was elected, said to a reporter on tv that now that her Obama was in office she was getting a new car and a house for free, like all you she is still waiting, all he will give us is 4 more years of high unemployment and more taxes and oh yeah, more taxes. Oh yeah, save the "its not his fault " bullshit for the liberal idiots out there please.
First I want to say that I proudly accept the Republican nomination for President of the United States. Me and my family are honored that Republican voters decided that despite my lack of personality I’m the man to take on President Obama this Fall.
Now I know you really had no other viable options, we’re just glad the option you didn’t really want to pick was Team Romney.
Now I know I haven’t been that great at getting through a simple interview without providing Democrats with a great political ad to slam me on, and I promise here today that I will continue to provide them plenty of ammunition to make me look like the out of touch 1%er that we all know that I am.
My record of creating jobs speaks for itself, just please don’t ask how many jobs we eliminated while I ran Bain Capital…completely ruins my talking point.
Recently I said I’m not concerned about the very poor, and I stand by that. I’m not. They’re probably too poor to make it to the voting booths anyway so they really don’t concern me. Who I am concerned about are people with televisions, internet access or the ability to use logic or reason. They’re going to be highly detrimental to our efforts convincing Americans that Obama somehow caused an economic crash nearly 2 years before he ever took office.
Some say I’m not in touch with the average American which is just absurd. Have you seen how many hands I’ve shaken? That, my friends, is a lot of touching.
I believe corporations are people. Sure they can violate laws, cheat taxes, cost millions of dollars, act unethical, and suffer no punishment by law for most, if any, of their criminal acts but that doesn’t mean they’re not people. I fully support a corporation’s right to marry, as long as it isn’t to a same-sex corporation.
Some say I flip flop on the issues, but they couldn’t be more wrong. Then again I may change my mind on that in a few minutes so I’ll get back to that.
There was a big issue with my tax returns. Worry not fellow Americans. You didn’t even see the worst of my returns. If you had seen the returns from 2006-2009, when our economy was headed for a crash, and saw how much money I made off of it, you’d really be upset.
I said I like the ability to fire people and it’s true. Our ability to fire people is what makes Americans great. Do you know how many middle class Americans you have to fire to make my millions? Heck my home in San Diego was paid for by a big layoff of middle class Americans just a few years ago. The view is phenomenal.
I know I may not be the most inspirational candidate out there. I know that if there were any credible options to run for the GOP nomination I wouldn’t be standing here now. I know that with every interview I give I prove nearly every American stereotype possible about the wealthy. I know that the more Americans get to know about me the less they like me. I know that there are rumors that some of you feel that I’m in fact a robot.
I know all of this, and still you voted for me. Crazy right? What else were you going to do, pick Newt Gingrich? We knew that wasn’t really going to happen.
So my fellow Americans I thank you from the deepest part of my pocketbooks. Without your lack of options for a Republican Presidential nomination I wouldn’t be here today.
I am an independent that has been leaning slightly towards the Democratic point of view over the past several years. Mainly because a Republican president was in office when this economic situation started to become so bleak. To make matters worse, Republicans have absolutely refused to acknowledge the economic debacle under George W. Bush.
Well, tonight Paul Ryan gained some respect from me. I certainly don’t like everything he said, but I do like the fact that he acknowledged twice that our current problems started before Obama. Yes, he did bash Obama pretty hard, but he did have the guts and the integrity to recognize that Obama was placed in a very difficult situation and some of the debt issues were started long before he took office.
If this is a new way of operating for Republicans, then I like it. Everyone makes mistakes, just be willing to own up to those mistakes. That goes for both sides of the issue. Next, I would like to hear Obama confess that he has focused too much on other issues besides the economy. The economy is by far the most important problem at the moment, and that should be his primary focus.
<quoted text>I would like to see the receipts for what she and her sorry husband have done with all of our tax money.
Oh. Come come! Some of the wisest sayings came from the Obama White House. Howe about "It's time to eat your peas"? I can close my eyes and just hear O's grandmother telling him that! Very profound. No?
I'm happy to say that after Novmber 7-election day- we will all gladly perform this not-so-unpleasant task.
Sorry people but neither party feels the way i do and no matter what side they are corrupt. they start with jailers selling cigs for 5 bucks a smoke and the higher you go up in politics more money involved no matter who you vote for
