    Simply because he hasn't repeatedly lied to the American people and screwed us over for several trillion dollars.

    Just looking at the polls, which I don't trust all that much, Romney is tied or a little ahead in them and obama should be miles ahead in the polls right now
  • Calm down! Mike 2012/05/25 02:02:43
    Calm down!
    I agree! The polls are so fake. It's 10 Democrats polling 1000 Democrats to get the poll results they want to see. It's a joke! Romney is probably really 30% higher in the polls in real life than what the polls are trying to make us believe.

    Obama is a great speaker, but that's all. He has no record to stand on and always blaims someone else for his failures..A leader is supposed to lead and work with BOTH parties. America gave him a chance and failed miserabley. Its time for a "change" we can believe in, and he had his chance...

    Knowing what I know today I would vote for anyone other than Romney. He is completely out of touch with the realities of the people and problems facing the country today. He has NO interest in helping the people of this country.

    If you don't think Mitt Romney helped the people of this country take a look at the pension plans of teachers, firefighters, and police. Bain capital is part of their investments. Then take a look at the Olympics. It was ready to collapse with dishonesty and fraud. Mitt Romney stepped in and rebuilt it. When he became Governor of Massachusets, the state was deeply in debt. When he left the budget was balanced. He also started Sports Authority and Staples.

    Woo pee. None ever said that he did not do some good at some time, especial when he had some benefit from it.
    Romney is First a Corporate Raider. He made his fortune, that he did not inherited, from buying companies with other people’s money, stripping them to the bones, selling the bones and leaving the community short a company that had provided the livelihood and community tax dollars. He risked nothing and killed off the livelihood of thousands of people and gave nothing of substance back to the community. So he rebuilt a stadium. So What. He took a huge tax break, provided a few short time jobs, maybe, and left the community with a monster that they could not afford to keep up in the first place. The average community Civic Center complexes loose on average $2M or more per year.
    If we do not provide industry, that is businesses that provide a sellable goods or services, we are in trouble. The Republican party as a whole, have fought every effort to rebuild the economy including destroying the health and education system of this country.
    So for Romney has managed to alienate and insult, woman’s health and protection by fighting to destroy health care programs and diluting the domestic Violence Act, including the ability of a woman to report and the precaution of rapist. He...

He has demined all American workers by suggesting that every American can become a malty millionaire like he is. The average worker can barely afford to keep food on the table and a roof over their head. To make matters even worse the Republicans, especially the Teabaggers, want to eliminate ALL the Health, Education and Wage laws fought for and won in the past 100 years. Then there are the Senior Citizens. He and the Republican party want to cut Social Security benefits that were worked for over a lifetime. What they should be doing is repaying the Social Security system ALL the money, with interest, that they borrowed at a no interest I.O.U. . They want to kill Medicare. Their idea of Health Care is ”Get sick, Spend All your Money and Die”
    It is a good thing that the American people and the Democratic Party had the good since NOT to Privatize Social Security like the Republicans want to do. If we had, most all of Americans Senior Citizens would be living with their children or on the street.

    If you're planning to write in a public forum, it would be great if you would use spellcheck and have someone check your grammar. Your opinions are not only ridiculous but rambling.
    What you said about Romney is not true so check your facts too.
    It's too difficult to try to make sense of your unfounded rantings so I don't plan to do it.

    Everything he said about Romney is true! So you go to the spellcheck crap. You are full of crap thinker. Whenever someone disagree with you people you run to some crap to protect yourself! Stop drinking the kool aid, learn how to spell, all irreverent to the points he made! Now watch, you will come back with I never said anything about kool aid!

    Builder,
    80% of the companies Romney rescued were successful. That's a great achievement. Obama has now tripled our national debt in the 3 1/2 years he's been in office and his main claim to fame is passing the largest tax increase in history. Unemployment is higher now than when he took office and continues to rise. Gas prices are going up and I can barely afford to go to the grocery store. His "affordable" health care tax adds 1200 new employees to IRS at the very least and by some estimates as many as 16000. Our government is too large now and he is adding a huge number to it. In another four years under the amateur, our country will be in the same state as Greece. I know it sounds good to get all this "free" health care, but it's not free. Small businesses will stop hiring at 49 so they won't have to add the 2.00 per hour per employee to their bottom line. In 2008 Obama said if the unemployment rolls were not at 5.4% he shouldn't get a second term. Well, I agree with him.
    There, now you have the facts. Knowing these things, voting for this man should be impossible for any thinking voter.
    By the way, I think you meant irrelevant, although spending time reading his rambling seemed like an irreverent activity to me.

    My hat is tipped to you. Most of the comments I read sound like a grade school drop out puking up the crap they swallow from the press. You on the other hand sound as if you actually think.
    You are right about Mitt. He is all about himself. He does not want you or the American people to think. Just vote the way a Republican party I am ashamed to admit being a part of once. Until they decided it was ok to ignore the people and focus on ousting
    a president who wanted to build our country back up.
    Mitt has picked a running mate who does not want your daughter or wife to have the right to abortion if they are raped by some insane criminal.
    If we get Romney we are in trouble. I am positive he will become a puppet of the Congress that has fought all attempts to right this countries problems. Because the dominant party failed to prevent the terrible condition we are in they will stop any attempt by another party to fix the problems. They forgot who spent the first bailout trillions. Mainly because they held NO ONE ACCOUNTABLE for that money.
    Obama made those receiving funds sign a note that they owed it back to the people.

    Thanks for thinking! I wish the name calling children would stop and actually research facts instead of swallowing Hannity/Rush blather based on twisted words or many times lies.
    "It takes a lot longer to heal a broken bone than it does to break it."
    Bad choices, crooked business and politics put us here over several years.
    Expecting a President to fix it in less than 4 explains so many things about our Nations problems.

    To better understand what is going on behind the seen with the Republican Party, I suggest, you read, Walter Humphrey? http://www.provostumphrey.com...
    Walter Humphrey was one of FDR’s V.P. in the 1940’s.
    I do not believe that the Rank and file Republican knows down what path they are being lead. If they did, I think that they would stand up and strike back.

    Judge a man not by his words, but judge him by the company he keeps. The fact is Obama lies. He surrounds himself with Communist and American terrorists. He supports Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood financially and militarily. He is the Arab spring. He violates our Constitution. Obama hates America. He is bankrupting us, attacking our moral base, and he is hollowing out our military. Also, he decimated NASA. Four more years? You got to be kidding! He is the divider. Four more years and we will have another revolution.

    The pendulum of political balance is in the hands of the secretive Bilderberg group (who will be meeting in VA USA next week according to the leak)...and no longer with the people. The American people are still in the dark and need to wake up! Goldman Sachs was Obama's biggest donor. Goldman Sachs is Romney's biggest donor. THERE WILL BE NO CHANGE WITH ROMNEY! At least there is a chance Obama may get impeached because the issue of his birthplace will not go away since there is yet to be proof he was born here. I examined his "birth certificate" myself since I specialize in image and signal processing and am a software engineer by trait. It is a terribly done forgery.

    ....BUT ONLY if all the votes are counted! This could be 2000 all over again and in the very same place, Florida! The lowest rated Governor in the USA has already begun his "PURGE" of registered, mostly Hispanic voters in Florida! Aided by loyal Republican County Clerks who allegedly "oversee" our "fair elections" if the wrong person is leading, votes simply disappear as was the case in 2006 when Vern Buchanan was losing in the polls to Christine Jennings, a local popular Democrat. Almost 18,000 votes mysteriously "disappeared" and the Republican won by a few hundred votes! Welcome to Iraq.... oops, I mean Florida, "home of the fair election process".... silly me!
