You must watch Current TV, you are so not informed about Bain Capital and how big business works. A company uses their money to invest in companies that are poorly run or are just on the down and outs. Some companies can't be saved others can and the ones that can come out way ahead and get out of the red and make lots of money and hire lots of American workers. There are a few that must be outsourced to other countries, sorry that is just the way it is. Let look at this closer; a company has union work staff they demand higher wages even after the company says hey in order to keep the doors open for now you must take a $1.00 per hour cut in pay.(yes I know this hurts but it is a must). The union refuses and goes on strike, so the company closes and relocates in say China or India where the average hourly rate is $4.00. Eventually this company may be able to open plants once again in America but you never hear about those on Current TV or CNN or MSNBC or even CBS and ABC. So no I am not a millionaire or anything like that I am part of the middle class, educated and I do my research.

Mormons and Catholics both believe in Jesus Christ, they both know they must except him as their savior to have a chance to go to heaven. So I don't see where you get the cat and dog shaken up thought process.

Catholics and Mormons both believe in Jesus. They believe to go to heaven you must accept him as their personal savior. So I don't see how you make the connection between cats and dogs.

<quoted text>In what way did Obama "earn" his money that Romney didn't?
Well, let's see:

After Harvard Law School, Obama didn't exactly rake in the big bucks! He worked for a Chicago law firm that specializes in civil rights and employment discrimination. Then, he earned $60,000 as an Illinois state senator, plus another $32,000 as a lecturer in constitutional law at the University of Chicago.

Michelle Obama, however, worked for a while as a big-firm lawyer, leaving to take jobs in the nonprofit sector. She wound up as vice-president for community affairs at the University of Chicago Hospitals, a position that paid nearly $317,000 a year. She resigned and left her post as lead independent director of Tree House Foods, a private-label food business.

According to the Obamas' tax return (NOTE: Obama and Senator Christopher Dodd of Connecticut are the only candidates to release one), their income hit $1.7 million in 2005 and $991,000 in 2006.

The big boost came from his writing, following the stirring speech at the 2004 Democratic Convention that made him famous. First came a memoir, "Dreams of My Father," and later "The Audacity of Hope," which was on the New York Times bestseller list for 30 weeks.

Romney INHERITED his millions!

Mormons do NOT believe that. They believe they are "brothers" of Christ and will become gods in their own rights once they enter Heaven. You better study Mormon theology a little more. Also, they believe God and Mary had INTERCOURSE to produce Jesus. That's right. They won't come right out and admit it, but back on into a corner and they won't deny it. Believe me, Christians and Mormons have very different beliefs - very.

Romney released two years of his taxes. That's more than Obama. Again, both "earned their money." While Obama was getting information about how to get around the Constitution form Harvard, Romney was earning a wage at Bain. Again, you are being lied to. Romney has actually had a job before getting into politics and I don't mean an internship. You can keep believing everything you see on TV if you want, but it doesn't mean that you're right.

Nobody's plan "eradicates Medicare." Ryan's plan doesn't effect baby boomers at all. Go back and read up on it instead of listening to Liberal media. The Romney-Ryan plan is a bi-partisan plan that passed in the House. One of the main reasons why is because it doesn't effect anyone over the age of 55. This is all just more class warfare from a scared president with a terrible record.

You're getting there on the record. It will be a hard 4 years, but you'll get it. I have faith in you. Voting for 3rd party is a waste vote. It's a baby step up from not voting at all.

Nope - wrong. Obama has released every year's return that has been requested. People with nothing to hide, hide nothing.

You just made that up - on the spot.
Louda wrote:

Nope - he was approving of American jobs being shipped overseas because a gazillion dollars wasn't enough "wealth" for him - he needed more.

Obama was a LAWYER! Last time I checked, that was a real job too. Kinda like being an accountant only much higher pay.

Says the guy who used 76 words before punctuating at all. What are you an expert in? Obama hasn't passed any tax legislation. He tried to let the Bush tax cuts expire which would've raised taxes on almost everyone. Keep believing everything you see on TV.

**Kids, stay in school or you will type like this for the rest of your life. This is exactly how stupid the government wants you to be. Fight the system and get your education so that you can be successful, unlike Scott.

By the way, I think the men at the plant make at least $35,000/year, so even according to your chart, they would pay at least 25%!

He payed over 10 million and donated another 10 mil to charity.
He also donated his entire inheritance over 100 million.

Do you still think your 25% means you payed more in TAXES.
