Last night Mitt Romney took the podium and distorted President Obama's record while ducking the GOP's real and radical plans to dismantle Medicare and give billionaires tax cuts on the backs of middle-class families.

And Paul Ryan lied throughout his speech like Jannie the Poo! Surprised his nose didn't poke one of the Repugnants in the audience in the eye!

SPRINGFIELD —

Illinois has received a $1 million federal grant to improve how it helps consumers who have complaints about insurance industry practices.

Illinois Department of Insurance Director Andrew Boron announced the award Thursday. The funding comes through the Affordable Care Act, the national health care law.

The insurance department plans to add tools on its website that will help Illinoisans with questions about their rights and problems with their health plans. Boron says the upgrade will give more families and businesses access to services and helpful information.

The grant will allow the state to improve its interactions with consumers whose claims have been denied by their health plans. The department already helps consumers file appeals and request external reviews when a health plan drops coverage or denies payment on a claim.

The luxury yacht, called “Cracker Bay,” is registered in the Cayman Islands and flies the British territory’s civil ensign. This raises an uncomfortable comparison for Romney, who has at least 12 accounts worth up to $30 million in the Cayman Islands. Cracker Bay was almost certainly registered in the Caymans for the exact same reason that Romney has stashed his money there: To avoid paying taxes on it. BUSH fucked us up, this dilbert gonna take us over the edge!!!!

True and there is also something just creepy about Romney. I keep expecting his arm to fall off, revealing circuits inside. I don't think Romney actually has a birth certicate; the GOP built him!

In a potentially worrisome development for Mitt Romney, the Virginia state board of elections decided Tuesday morning to allow the Constitution Party candidate for president – former GOP Rep. Virgil Goode – on the ballot in November.

I wish we could just split the US in half. You take the blue states and we take the red. We split the deficit in half and you run your program we run ours. It would be awesome. I bet your half will have 90% of the free loaders and illegal immigrants and they won't be of any use to you guys because their vote won't matter. Let's do it!!!!!

Today, Biden says that we are better off than we were 4 years ago - bin Laden is dead and GM is operating. Is that it Mr. Biden?

Would that Grandpa of yours be the famous Grandpa Douchie, the Mad Gasser of Mattoon??? Yeah, that's the kind of person I listen to advice from. Is that why you ride that little trike of yours, jack wiener dogs and 10-year-old boys and hang out at the Love Buns Bar and Grill?? Typical Romney voter!

Because Darth Cheney during his reign of error drove the American economy into the effing ground! How soon you Republitards forget. We had a SURPLUS when he was appointed by the Supreme Court. President Obama stopped our economy from going off a cliff. It took a lot longer to recover from the Great Depression of the 1930s than 4 years. Try not to exhibit the typical American sin of expecting Instant Gratification. Yes, we ARE better off than 2008. But if Romney the Robot hijacks the election, we definitely WON'T BE.

PS: I drive a 10-year-old car. I like it. Why should I show conspicuous consumption just because I can? I don't need to brag about my new car, my "vette," my "harley," or anything else material. That is childish.

We own 2 vehicles - 1 is 12 yrs old and the other 16 years old. I like my cars and wouldn't trade or sell them for a newer car even if I could afford one. However, I believe we are in the minority. The point being - new or newer used car sales are a good indicator of the faith the American people have in their jobs and economy.
