Obama has tried to pass a jobs bill but the Republican house blocked him at every turn because they would rather wreck the country than see him re-elected.

The Affordable Health Care Law was a major achievement and if it gets implemented will save many lives. It was passed when there was a Democratic majority in Congress. According to Romney, no one dies in this country from lack of health care - wrong! It's not a "government takeover of health care" at all. Is the government going to take over private insurance? No. Is the government going to take over hospitals? No. The government is going to make sure that everyone gets some kind of coverage and if a person can't afford it, he or she will get assistance paying for it. So many lies are being told about this issue it is truly unbelievable.

Mitt Romney is a shape shifter who will say anything to get elected. He was a moderate, then a conservative, now he is a moderate again. Who is he really? He's Gordon Gecko - the Wall Street guy. The only jobs he'll be creating will be in India, China and Mexico. He's already said that he won't be representing "the 47%" but actually it's the 99% he won't be representing. He is concerned about the welfare of the upper 1% only.

Romney wasn't reaching across the aisle in Massachusetts. He routinely vetoed legislation passed by the Democratic legislature there. His vetoes were routinely overridden. He only served one term. His major accomplishment was called Romneycare upon which Obamacare was based. Of course, now that it is politically expedient, Romney renounces it.

He was also pro-choice back in the day - but, now, of course, he claims to to no longer be. What does he really believe about abortion - how would you ever really know what he believes about anything?

The PACs can put anything on the air they want. They can twist any facts they like. They could say that Obama was born on Mars and probably Fox News would go into a frenzy trying to get a blood sample from the President proving that he is truly human. Donald Trump would offer to give money to a charity in exchange for a blood sample.

Would Trump dare to behave so absurdly and disrespectfully to a white President of the United States? I have a feeling that he wouldn't dare. I'm not saying that everyone who doesn't like the President is a racist. But I truly feel that some of what is said about the President does come from a very bad place. And I am about the whitest white person I know.

Obama isn't a perfect President or a perfect candidate. I don't agree with all of his policies. But I truly believe that he has the interest of most Americans at heart and that he is someone who we know. He would be more cautious about getting us into a war with Iran. It seems to me that Romney is chomping at the bit to do just that.

I'm a Democrat too but I am very very ashamed to say that. Obama said we aren't a Christian nation, he snubs Israel, he bows down to Muslims. Obama preaches hatred against anybody that works, especially anybody that becomes successful. He incites people to hate their boss. He encourages welfare to the toon of 16 trillion. He sat and listened to Jeremiah's hate sermons for decades. He is forcing everybody to pay for girls birth control and abortions. He and Biden are embarrassing. At least Romney has proven over and over again that he knows how to start and run a business in the black. Obama has proven that he knows how to run our country further in debt. Be like me, vote Christian, not party lines

You people are stupid! The people that set gas prices are the people that own the stations, NOT OBAMA! Don't u know he would drop gas to a penny to get reelected if he could. Duh
Wrong!. Obama shut down numerous oil refineries in the Gulf and he refuses to sign the bill to let the oil pipe from Canada (which I might add would add an immediate 450,000 jobs). He prefers that we continue to be hogtied and at the mercy of the Muslims. That includes Obamas refusal to look at South America and their Natural gas or at our plentiful Shell in Ky. Oh and don't get me started on Coal. Instead,,, your wonderful Barak Husein Obama sent trillions of stimulus dollars to groups such as green initiative companies that are claiming bankruptcy right now. Mark my words gas will probably be between $6-$10 in the next 4 years if Obama wins again

Romney knows how to make jobs - in China, India and Mexico.

Welfare to Work? Think about it for a minute. For one thing you have people who are already getting assistance taking jobs from people who can't get assistance - like people who don't have kids, older people etc. For another thing, the taxpayers have to pay for their child care while they are working. Welfare to work was always about politics - not economics.

If the Obama is so anti-energy that why is the US projected to be energy self-sufficient by 2030?

Obama doesn't snub Israel, he just doesn't go along with everything that the right wing factions in Israel want. There are other voices in Israel but Netanyahu is aligned with Republicans in this country. If Obama were anti-Israel, would so many high profile American Jews support him? No.

You need to get your information from other sources than just Fox news - why don't you watch Public Television news or listen to National Public Radio? Just to get the other side of the story for once might change the way you see things.

Obama's last GDP +2%, Bush's last GDP -9%. So if you are a good businessman you know that is an 11% improvement. Jobs lost the last month Bush was in office 810,000, 4 million lost his last year. Romney had the same advisors the same policy. The majority of Americans were not stupid, thank God.

Actually a little over half of Americans are that stupid. Bush had 911 as an excuse. He shouldn't have gotten us in to 2 wars instead of two. He remained a quite class act after his term was over and the biggest disgraceful pres and vice pres we have ever had continue to blame Bush for anything and everything. Get real! Obama tripled our debt. He and his congress did that! He is supporting his crony union buddies who believe we need fewer workers but those who are fortunate to keep their jobs get amazing benefits. So what if hostess and numerous companies are going out of business because they can't afford union demands. Oh and relook at the jobs lost again, this time, count all if the thousands who have given up looking for a job.
Just because more people voted for hussein Obama doesn't mean it was a wise choice. Similar things happen when a teacher offers kids a choice between candy and healthy vegetables. Kids will vote for candy every time. Wise will vote for veggies. You and your childish liberal brothers and sisters will get your tooth aches sooner than later. It's called the fiscal cliff you are rushing blindly towards.the sad part is that you are uprooting those if us that want to be left alone, that want to work and be proud of what we do for a living and that want to take care of our own and the poor and helpless in our own communities. We want God in our homes, not Obamas gov
