    Romney will have to lie for 8 years to get near Obama's record.

    On economic issues Romney knows more than the entire Obama cabinet.

    But thanks for posing this as a dubious question. What lies are you talking about? Would it be anything like Obama's lies about transparency and bipartisanship?

    Your "question" confuses the two candidates.
    #1, No one can make the economy worse than Oslime has.
    #2, Oslime is the one quilty of "all his lies."

    Hope that straightens you out.

    socialism with a capitalistic veneer" is called fascism. GM is nominally still a private company, but the government bailed it out and calls the shots. This is fascism. The political benefit of fascism vs socialism (where the government owns formerly private companies outright) is that if the company tanks again the government can say that corporate officers failed, not government. If the company succeeds, the government can claim credit. It's a heads I win, tails you lose situation - just the kind 0bama likes.

    I think he'll make things much better because he actually had a real job, ran a successful business, has leadership skills, and is not a narcissistic jackass like Obama.

    Until the entitlement programs are ended our economy has no hope of getting better. The trend line shows these hammock programs consuming 100% of GDP in the near future. Once again government proves it has no idea of how to manage anything.

    He will delete Obama's big government regulations which will cause Investor to invest in America and create jobs. Also, Romney understands that investors hate uncertainty in Government so Romney will eliminate the uncertainty.

    Romney’s stimulus package will be many times larger then Obama's however, not a dime of it will be taxpayer money. Romney understands capitalism and investors.

    Obama only understands how to buy votes with welfare programs and special privileges.

    Obama has lied more than any president in our history!
    Here are just some--I got a lot more
    HEALTH-CARE MANDATES
    STATEMENT: “We’ve got a philosophical difference, which we’ve debated
    repeatedly, and that is that Senator Clinton believes the only way to
    achieve universal health care is to force everybody to purchase it. And
    my belief is, the reason that people don’t have it is not because they
    don’t want it but because they can’t afford it.” Barack Obama, speaking at a Democratic presidential debate, February 21, 2008.
    EXPIRATION DATE: On March 23, 2010, Obama signed the individual mandate into law.
    HEALTH-CARE NEGOTIATIONS ON C-SPAN
    STATEMENT: “These negotiations will be on C-SPAN, and so the public
    will be part of the conversation and will see the decisions that are
    being made.” January 20, 2008, and seven other times.
    EXPIRATION DATE: Throughout the summer, fall, and winter of 2009 and
    2010; when John McCain asked about it during the health-care summit
    February 26, Obama dismissed the issue by declaring, “the campaign is over, John.”


    RAISING TAXES

    RAISING TAXES
    STATEMENT: “No family making less than $250,000 will see any form of tax increase.” (multiple times on the campaign trail)
    EXPIRATION DATE: Broken multiple times, including the raised taxes on tobacco, a new tax on indoor tanning salons, but most prominently on February 11, 2010: “President Barack Obama said he is ‘agnostic’ about raising taxes on households making less than $250,000 as part of a broad effort to rein in the budget deficit.”


    RECESS APPOINTMENTS
    STATEMENT: Then-senator Obama declared that a recess appointment is
    “damaged goods” and has “less credibility” than a normal appointment. August 25, 2005.
    EXPIRATION DATE: March 27, 2010:
    “If, in the interest of scoring political points, Republicans in the
    Senate refuse to exercise that responsibility, I must act in the
    interest of the American people and exercise my authority to fill these
    positions on an interim basis.”


    BORDER SECURITY
    STATEMENT: “We need tougher border security,
    and a renewed focus on busting up gangs and traffickers crossing our
    border. . . . That begins at home, with comprehensive immigration
    reform. That means securing our border and passing tough employer enforcement laws.” Then-candidate Obama, discussing the need for border security, speaking in Miami on May 23, 2008.
    EXPIRATION DATE: March 17, 2010: The Obama administration halted new
    work on a “virtual fence” on the U.S.-Mexican border, Homeland Security

    planned economic stimulus funds for the project to other purposes.
    GUANTANAMO BAY
    STATEMENT: Executive order stating, “The detention facilities at
    Guantánamo for individuals covered by this order shall be closed as soon

    order.” January 22, 2009.
    EXPIRATION DATE: November 19, 2009: “Guantánamo, we had a specific deadline that was missed.”


    MILITARY TRIBUNALS
    STATEMENT: “Somebody like Khalid Sheik Mohammad is gonna get
    basically, a full military trial with all the bells and whistles.”
    September 27, 2006
    EXPIRATION DATE: Ongoing.
    “President Obama is planning to insert himself into the debate about
    where to try the accused mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks,
    three administration officials said Thursday, signaling a recognition
    that the administration had mishandled the process and triggered a
    political backlash. Obama initially had asked Attorney General Eric H.
    Holder Jr. to choose the site of the trial in an effort to maintain an
    independent Justice Department. But the White House has been taken aback
    by the intense criticism from political opponents and local officials
    of Holder’s decision to try Khalid Sheik Mohammed in a civilian
    courtroom in New York.”


    RECOVERY.GOV
    STATEMENT: “We will launch a sweeping effort to root out waste, inefficiency, and unnecessary spending in our government,
    and every American will be able to see how and where we spend taxpayer
    dollars by going to a new website called recovery.gov.” – President
    Obama, January 28, 2009
    EXPIRATION DATE: “More than two months after some of the funds
    were released, [Recovery.gov] offers little detail on where the money
    is going . . . The government [spent] $84 million on a website that
    doesn’t have a search function, when its purpose is to ‘root out waste,
    inefficiency, and unnecessary spending in our government.’” April 2, 2009
    Eighteen from his first 100 days:
    1. “As President I will recognize the Armenian Genocide.”


    2. “I will make sure that we renegotiate [NAFTA].“


    3. Opposed a Colombian Free Trade Agreement because advocates ignore that “labor leaders have been targeted for assassination on a fairly consistent basis.”


    4. “Now, what I’ve done throughout this campaign is to propose a net spending cut.”


    5. “If we see money being misspent, we’re going to put a stop to it, and we will call it out and we will publicize it.“


    6. “Yesterday,
    Jim, the head of Caterpillar, said that if Congress passes our plan,
    this company will be able to rehire some of the folks who were just laid
    off.”


    7. “I
    want to go line by line through every item in the Federal budget and
    eliminate programs that don’t work, and make sure that those that do
    work work better and cheaper.”


    8. “[My plan] will not help speculators who took risky bets on a rising market and bought homes not to live in but to sell.”


    9. “Instead
    of allowing lobbyists to slip big corporate tax breaks into bills
    during the dead of night, we will make sure every single tax break and
    earmark is available to every American online.”


    10. “We
    can no longer accept a process that doles out earmarks based on a
    member of Congress’s seniority, rather than the merit of the project.”


    11. “If
    your family earns less than $250,000 a year, you will not see your
    taxes increased a single dime. I repeat: not one single dime.”


    12. “Barack
    Obama and Joe Biden believe the United States has to be frank with the
    Chinese about such failings and will press them to respect human rights.”


    13. “We must take out Osama bin Laden and his lieutenants if we have them in our sights.”


    14. “Lobbyists won’t work in my White House!“


    15. “The
    real gamble in this election is playing the same Washington game with
    the same Washington players and expecting a different result.”


    16. “I’ll
    make oil companies like Exxon pay a tax on their windfall profits, and
    we’ll use the money to help families pay for their skyrocketing energy
    costs and other bills.”


    17. “Obama
    will not sign any non-emergency bill without giving the American public
    an opportunity to review and comment on the White House website for
    five days.” Obama is 1-for-11 on this promise so far.
    18. A special one on the 100th day, “The first thing I’d do as president is sign the Freedom of Choice Act. That’s the first thing I’d do.”


    And a list from of promises that expired during the campaign:
    IRAQ
    STATEMENT: “Based on the conversations we’ve had internally as well
    as external reports, we believe that you can get one to two brigades out
    a month. At that pace, the forces would be out in approximately 16
    months from the time that we began. That would be the time frame that I
    would be setting up,” Obama to the New York Times, November 1, 2007
    EXPIRATION DATE: March 7, 2008: Obama foreign policy adviser Samantha Power,
    to the BBC: “You can’t make a commitment in whatever month we’re in
    now, in March of 2008 about what circumstances are gonna be like in Jan.
    2009. We can’t even tell what Bush is up to in terms of troop pauses
    and so forth. He will of course not rely upon some plan that [Obama
    has] crafted as a presidential candidate or as a US senator.”


    Also: July 3, 2008: “My 16-month timeline, if you examine everything
    I’ve said, was always premised on making sure our troops were safe,”
    Obama told reporters as his campaign plane landed in North Dakota. “And
    my guiding approach continues to be that we’ve got to make sure that our
    troops are safe, and that Iraq is stable. And I’m going to continue to
    gather information to find out whether those conditions still hold.”


    STATEMENT: On June 14, Obama foreign-policy adviser Susan Rice called
    the RNC’s argument that Obama needed to go to Iraq to get a firsthand
    look “complete garbage.”
    EXPIRATION DATE: On June 16, Obama
    announced he would go to Iraq and Afghanistan “so he can see first hand
    the progress of the wars he would inherit if he’s elected president.”


    DEBATES
    STATEMENT: May 16, 2008: “If John McCain wants to meet me, anywhere,
    anytime to have a debate about our respective policies in Iraq, Iran,
    the Middle East or around the world, that is a conversation I’m happy to
    have.”
    EXPIRATION DATE: June 13, 2008: Obama campaign manager
    David Plouffe: “Barack Obama offered to meet John McCain at five joint
    appearances between now and Election Day — the three traditional debates
    plus a joint town hall on the economy in July [on the Fourth of July]
    and an in-depth debate on foreign policy in August.”


    IRAN
    STATEMENT: “We can, then, more effectively deal
    with what I consider to be one of the greatest threats to the United
    States, to Israel, and world peace, and that is Iran,” Obama speaking to
    American Israel Public Affairs Committee in Chicago, March 5, 2007
    EXPIRATION DATE: “Iran, Cuba,
    Venezuela, these countries are tiny . . . They don’t pose a serious
    threat to us the way the Soviet Union posed a threat to us.” – May 20,
    2008
    STATEMENT: Question at the YouTube debate, as the video depicted
    leaders of the countries, including Mahmoud Ahmadinejad: “Would you be
    willing to meet separately, without precondition, during the first year
    of your administration, in Washington or anywhere else, with the leaders
    of Iran, Syria, Venezuela, Cuba and North Korea?”


    “I would,” Obama answered. July 27, 2007
    EXPIRATION DATE: May 10, 2008: Susan E. Rice, a former State
    Department and National Security Council official who is a
    foreign-policy adviser to the Democratic candidate: “But nobody said he
    would initiate contacts at the presidential level; that requires due
    preparation and advance work.”


    JEREMIAH WRIGHT/TRINITY UNITED
    STATEMENT: “I could no more disown Jeremiah Wright than I could disown my own grandmother.”


    –Barack Obama, March 18, 2008
    EXPIRATION DATE: on April 28, 2008, Obama cut all ties to Wright,
    declaring, “Based on his remarks yesterday, well, I may not know him as
    well as I thought.”
    STATEMENT: Obama said on March 18, 2008, that
    his church, Trinity United, “embodies the black community in its

    bill that includes retroactive immunity for telecommunications
    companies.”


    EXPIRATION DATE: June 20, 2008: “Given the legitimate threats we face, providing effective intelligence collection tools
    with appropriate safeguards is too important to delay. So I support the
    compromise, but do so with a firm pledge that as president, I will
    carefully monitor the program.”


    NUCLEAR ENERGY
    STATEMENT: “I am not a nuclear energy proponent.” Barack Obama, December 30, 2007

    power as part of the energy mix,” expressed on July 23, 2007; the above
    statement expired when he told Democratic governors he thought it is
    “worth investigating its further development” on June 20, 2008.
    NAFTA
    STATEMENT: Tim Russert:: “Senator Obama . . . Simple question: Will
    you, as president, say to Canada and Mexico, ‘This has not worked for
    us; we are out’?”


    Obama: “I will make sure that we renegotiate, in the same way that
    Senator Clinton talked about. And I think actually Senator Clinton’s
    answer on this one is right. I think we should use the hammer of a
    potential opt-out as leverage to ensure that we actually get labor and
    environmental standards that are enforced. And that is not what has been
    happening so far.” February 23, 2008
    EXPIRATION DATE: June 18, 2008, Fortune magazine:
    “’Sometimes during campaigns the rhetoric gets overheated and
    amplified,’ he conceded, after I reminded him that he had called NAFTA
    ‘devastating’ and ‘a big mistake,’ despite nonpartisan studies
    concluding that the trade zone has had a mild, positive effect on the
    U.S. economy.
    “Does that mean his rhetoric was overheated and amplified?
    ‘Politicians are always guilty of that, and I don’t exempt myself,’ he
    answered.
    “‘I’m not a big believer in doing things unilaterally,’ Obama said.
    ‘I’m a big believer in opening up a dialogue and figuring out how we can
    make this work for all people.’”


    PUBLIC FINANCING
    STATEMENT: “If I am the Democratic nominee, I will aggressively
    pursue an agreement with the Republican nominee to preserve a publicly
    financed general election.” Also, a Common Cause questionnaire dated
    November 27, 2007, asked “If you are nominated for President in 2008 and
    your major opponents agree to forgo private funding in the general election campaign, will you participate in the presidential public financing system?”, Obama checked, “Yes.”


    EXPIRATION DATE: June 19, 2008: Obama announced he would not participate in the presidential public financing system.
    WORKING OUT A DEAL ON PUBLIC FINANCING
    STATEMENT: “What I’ve said is, at the point where I’m the nominee, at
    the point where it’s appropriate, I will sit down with John McCain and
    make sure that we have a system that works for everybody.”Obama to Tim
    Russert, Febuary 27.
    EXPIRATION DATE: When Obama announced his decision to break his
    public-financing pledge on June 19, no meeting between the Democratic

    EXPIRATION DATE: April 11, 2008: Asked if he would have vetoed the

    STATEMENT: “Barack Obama has always believed that same-sex couples
    should enjoy equal rights under the law, and he will continue to fight

    make their own decisions when it comes to the issue of marriage.” –
    campaign spokesman, May 5, 2008
    EXPIRATION DATE: June 29, 2008: “I oppose the divisive and
    discriminatory efforts to amend the California Constitution, and similar
    efforts to amend the U.S. Constitution or those of other states . .
    . Finally, I want to congratulate all of you who have shown your love
    for each other by getting married these last few weeks.” — letter to the
    Alice B. Toklas LGBT Democratic Club
    PARTIAL-BIRTH ABORTION
    STATEMENT: “Now, I don’t think that ‘mental distress’ qualifies as the health of the mother. I think it has to be a serious physical issue
    that arises in pregnancy, where there are real, significant problems to
    the mother carrying that child to term.” – interview with Relevant magazine, July 1, 2008
    EXPIRATION DATE: July 5, 2008: “My only point is that in an area like
    partial-birth abortion having a mental, having a health exception can
    be defined rigorously. It can be defined through physical health, It can
    be defined by serious clinical mental-health diseases.” — statement to
    reporters.
    DIVISION OF JERUSALEM
    STATEMENT: “Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel, and it must remain undivided.” – speech before AIPAC, June 4, 2008

    Romney is an ELITEIST.... He has NO more concern for the poor and middle class thann the man in the Moon.

    MORE taxes on the poor and middle class
    LESS taxes on the ultra-wealthy
    NO jobs created
    Unelployment goes UP.

    Im 50 I realize their are no simple answers, dont hate the 1 that gives me work, I hate the fact that they allow lazy managers to abuse their positions & expect the res of us to do their work.
