    This November is going to be a LANDSLIDE in Mitt Romney's favor.

    I guarantee it. The future of America is counting on it.

    That's just one of their "Presidential" polls. They have several of them running at the same time, depending on who they're running them for.

    Real Clear Politics dot Com has an aggregate poll-of-polls that seems a bit closer to reality (if one can call politics reality).

    i guess you didn't read your wall street journal this morning; p. 4; in which the real romney displays his patrician disdain for the average joe, whose hard times are utterly beyond romney's privileged comprehension; unless you're at least a millionaire, and no matter how much you hate obama, you do not want romney to get his hands on the levers of power; you think you do, but you really don't--

    Voter ID laws are a solution in search of a problem, and they've been proven to disenfranchise the poor and elderly. Which is precisely why Republicans love them so much.

    It could happen, of course.

    I'd just love to provide the cheese at a Democratic party for "whiners" who had to deal with R's getting automatic vote stashes like Calif, NY, Minn, De, RI, Conn, and on and on and on EVERY election.

    D's can only "wine" and they produce zero solutions that will help us, they only want to continue to go down the road that is going to surely destroy us all.

    Yes.. He COULD and so can Romney.. Romney was 100% correct in his analysis of the State of the Union..He is 100% correct when he makes the statement that almost half of America lives off the other half.. That they live off the taypayer.. And he is 100% correct that these people will vote accordingly.. It is not an easy thing to hear but America is NOT turning into an Entitlement Nation.. It's ALREADY there for HALF the country....

    Ironic as it IS,, as HARD as it is to believe,, Obama could very well be re-elected BECAUSE of his inept and incompetent handling of this Nation's Economy instead of losing his job because of it..

    With HALF of this country getting Government Checks because Obama put them out of work,, that ole Benjamin Franklin Quote comes into play..

    "When the people find that they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the Republic.."

    After FOUR YEARS of Obama,, they may FEEL that they have NO other choice..

    It's going to be a LONG and HARD road BACK for America and many,, After this Obama presidency,, simply aren't in the financial position to make the trip..

    Mitt Romney is going to loose big time after watching a speech he did , he literally stereotyped and branded 47% of Americans as people who are leeching off the government and don't pay taxes , he just dug his own grave go ahead give it a look

    Trouble is he was correct also the number of people on the government dole is at 49% almost at the tipping point. Look at Greece and Europe we will soon be like these bankrupt and failing countries..hope the people who voted for Obama are proud what they will be leaving to their children and grand-children.

    He could also lose the popular vote AND the election. It is very likely. An incumbent is usually way ahead at this point. And the undecideds usually break 80-20 against the incumbent.

    923 Executive Orders in 40 Months
    During my lifetime, All Presidents have issued Executive Orders, for reasons that vary, some more than others. When a President issued as many as 30 Ex. Orders during a term in Office, people thought there was something Amiss.


    WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT 923 EX. ORDERS IN ONE PART OF ONE TERM
    ?????? YES, THERE IS A REASON.
    IT IS THAT THE PRESIDENT IS DETERMINED TO TAKE CONTROL AWAY FROM THE HOUSE AND
    THE SENATE.
    Even some Democrats in the House have turned on him, plus a very small number of
    Democrat Senators question him.
    HE SHOULD BE QUESTIONED. WHAT IS HE REALLY TRYING TO ACCOMPLISH ????
    DOES THIS SCARE YOU AS MUCH AS IT DOES Me?
    Not really surprising that he appointed "Czars" to be in charge of everything.
    Emperor Obama ?
    Coming soon to a neighborhood near you.
    ....THIS IS NOT FUNNY, AND IF YOU VOTE FOR HIM AGAIN, YOU CAN EXPECT MORE!

    Remember what he told Russia's Putin: "I'll be more flexible after I'm re-elected".

    THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION: Obama has signed 923 Executive Orders in 40 months!
    What did Congress do in those 40 months? (The House - considerable. The Senate
    -nothing, not even a budget nor allowing any House bill to be considered.) A

    -nothing, not even a budget nor allowing any House bill to be considered.) A
    whole new order must prevail in Wash. DC as a result of this next election! Now
    look at these:
    -EXECUTIVE ORDER 10990 allows the government to take over all modes of
    transportation and control of highways and seaports.
    -EXECUTIVE ORDER 10995 allows the government to seize and control the
    communication media.

    -EXECUTIVE ORDER 10997 allows the government to take over all electrical power,
    gas, petroleum, fuels and minerals.


    -EXECUTIVE ORDER 10998 allows the government to take over all food resources and
    farms.

    -EXECUTIVE ORDER 11000 allows the government to mobilize civilians into work
    brigades under government supervision.

    -EXECUTIVE ORDER 11001 allows the government to take over all health, education
    and welfare functions.

    -EXECUTIVE ORDER 11002 designates the of all persons. Postmaster General to
    operate a national registration


    -EXECUTIVE ORDER 11003 allows the government to
    take over all airports and aircraft, including commercial aircraft.

    -EXECUTIVE ORDER 11004 allows the Housing and Finance Authority to relocate
    communities, build new housing with public funds, designate areas to be
    abandoned, and establish new locations for populations.

    -EXECUTIVE ORDER 11005 allows the government to take over railroads, inland
    waterways and public storage facilities.

    -EXECUTIVE ORDER 11049 assigns emergency preparedness function to federal
    departments and agencies, consolidating 21 operative Executive Orders issued
    over a fifteen year period.

    -EXECUTIVE ORDER 11051 specifies the responsibility of the Office of Emergency
    Planning and gives authorization to put all Executive Orders into effect in
    times of increased international tensions and economic or financial crisis.

    -EXECUTIVE ORDER 11310 grants authority to the Department of Justice to enforce
    the plans set out in Executive Orders, to institute industrial support, to
    establish judicial and legislative liaison, to control all aliens, to operate
    penal and correctional institutions, and to advise and assist the President.

    -EXECUTIVE ORDER 11921 allows the Federal Emergency Preparedness Agency to
    develop plans to establish control over the mechanisms of production and
    distribution, of energy sources, wages, salaries, credit and the flow of money
    in U.S. financial institution in any undefined national emergency. It also
    provides that when a state of emergency is declared by the President, Congress
    cannot review the action for six months.


    Feel free to verify the "executive orders" at will... and these are just the
    major ones I'm sure you've all heard the tale of the "Frog in the Pot"... you
    all comfortable???
    Watch Obama's actions, not his words! By his actions he will show you where
    America is headed.

    . Just this week, Obama has issued a new executive order that seeks to
    "harmonize" U.S. economic regulations with the rest of the world. This new
    executive order is yet another incremental step that is pushing us closer to a
    North American Union and a one world economic system.

    I'm too busy right now to look into your highlit list of EOs, but according to the official record, Obama's only issued 134 during his presidency. As for 30 EO's in a presidency turning heads-- since Executive Orders started existing, no president has made less than 30. Reagen, for instance, had 380.

    Bash the president all you want, but don't lie to do it, man.

    The OP is just spamming the discussion with some post that's making the rounds of Tea Party blogs. Just paste any sentence into google and you'll find it all over the Net. It's all pure fabrication, deliberate lies and completely confuses "regulations" with "executive orders". The OP's first dozen EOs were actually signed by JFK in 1962; the last two were signed by Johnson and Ford. Obama's EOs start at 13489.

    And it should come as no surprise that the post completely misrepresents the purpose of each EO.

    The folks who raved that post should be ashamed of themselves.
