Republicans come in all shapes and sizes and most are not at all wealthy as the Dems would like you to believe. Just simple hard working folk that take a more conservative approach to life in general. Not all are good and not all are bad, most lie somewhere in between.

Just facts; Romney along with the other 2 percentors have no worries about taxes, monthly bills,retirement, medical bills, they are all the elite and when they want something they aren't worried can they afford it. Where the majority of us have real concers in how we are going to make it work. Paying 15% of his ADJUSTED income when most of us are paying 20-to 35 %.And 20-35% is a far greater percent of real dollars than it is to them. He should be ashamed of even admitting to 15%. I don't deny success or being rewarded for hard work but to take Daddy's money and look rich doesnt make a very understanding president.

I am neither of the two. I used to call myself a Republican.Now I am a Conservative. I can't stand what the Liberals have done to my country. Obama is destroying us. Look at the debt we have incurred. At what point do we say this is crazy we have to stop this spending? Between unions, Lawyers,College professors, teachers and these ridiculous "entitlement" programs this country is broke. Japan, China, India and the Arabs will own everything here including our children if we don't get a handle on spending. The federal Government has a long colorful history of insane spending. I am a retired municipal worker. when I was young, I made a choice, civil service was a lower pay but had excellent job security. my friends went into private sector like auto plants. They were unionized and made good money but went out on strikes ordered by their unions and drove up production costs which the consumer paid. I stayed in my lower paying job and retired with a smaller pension. Look what the unions did to this country. Who ever thought GM would go bankrupt? Now the average federal worker, this is ALL employees in civil service makes over $100,000.00 a year! Your paying them and all their benefits too. Now the civil service is the golden egg. look at what teachers in Atlanta make, is their salaries in line with the local economy? Wake up people this liberal entitlement B.S. has got to end now!

BTW,,,,,, I could give a shit less about what Romney pays in taxes. Everybody is whining about he only paid 14% on his income. he said he made 20 million in 2010. I was always good at math, 14% of 20 million is 2.8 million. I believe that it was reported that Obama paid less that a million. At their saying Romney is not paying his fair share,,, give me a break!

BTW what percent did you pay in Federal income and state taxes? If you paid your legitimate taxes I am sure was a bigger bite than Romeny.

well what I paid is none of your business, I'm not running for any office. But I will state I didn't pay close to 3 million like Romney.That's more than I made in my entire life. Did you pay 2.8 million if so you may have a right to bitch?

I think that VP Biden summed it up pretty well while he was campaigning in "08 when he said we were clinging to our guns and Bibles. Most of us living up here still believe in both. That seems to really worry the Democrats along both coasts. Instead of trying to divide the country just ask yourself if you are better off than you were four years ago.

Mr. Romney is a spitting image of our last Republican President. Rich Spoiled Kid! Rich Dad, so called Christian,(yet piss on the poor or the environment)a strict politician without real realization of what most Americans are going through! Lied about being a bully in high school,lied about his taxes while running for Govenor. In his short trip to Europe recently a fool of himself and real concern on his approach to forigen policy.

Good debate. Mr. Rommney looked strong, well prepaired. But I had to minimize the picture and only listen to the sound. The Faces Romney made were SUPER childish. According to Fact Check, Again mitt was untruthful, with most of his numbers. I wish he could get the facts straight. If you are going to debate on National Televison with many skeptics on each side Use good facts!
