    To my knowledge, Romney has never used racism or class envy to win elections.

    Mitt has not been in there (high office) long enough to match B.O. the master liar.

    Old Proverb: How do you tell B.O. is lying? His lips are moving.

    the commentrs about racism and white men astound me. You cannot lump all white men into that statement and it in itself is racism toward white men. Also there are no republicans in the house or senate that are ex Klu Kux Clan members and wonder of wonders their are ,that are Democrates. Also, the Civil Rights act was not qritten by Democrates, but by Republicans and was passed by Republicans as well, Lincoln was a white man and a Republican. It is the same old Montra, using the race card is old hat. there is no difference we are all humans no matter the color of our skin and we all live and work together and have so much in common, why can't we talk about that? To seperate us is racism. Black, White, Yellow, Brown, or red we all have the same make up just a different pigment and all are beautiful. Stop acting like the democrates are lifting us into the future they are holding us back from unity and they need to be sent a strong message, Stop and get ouit of the way, you cannot seperate us anymore. Just a side note Obama has taken more donations from Bain Capital than Romney has. look at the facts instead of blindly following someone because you are told by the media, or because of our skin color. There are good people and bad people of all races , and of all sexes.. Don't except someone just because of race, or their sex.

    The democrats don't give a hoot about the blacks it's just a way of keeping them in proverty under their control for votes. How can they be so stupid? The democrats have called the republican blacks every name possible which shows you cannot disagree with a democrat. Wake up black people.

    Well our, ah, sitting President has chosen not to keep his campaign promise and proven himself a liar. It does not appear that he has ever held a real job and found this one so difficult he's spent more time on vacation than working.

    2nd, he continues the same old straw man bs he's down since taking the oath.

    3rd, Mitt Romney ought to not feel goaded by the likes of BHO & Dingy Reid. BHO hasn't actually proved he graduated from college school (same one, GWB did graduate from)

    Finally, BHO swore to uphold and protect the Constitution and he's proven no more competent at that than anything else. Pres to be Romney has got more character in his pinky than the sitting Pres has ever demonstrated.

    char·ac·ter   [kar-ik-ter] noun
    1. the aggregate of features and traits that form the individual nature of some person or thing.
    2. one such feature or trait; characteristic.
    3. moral or ethical quality: a man of fine, honorable character.
    4. qualities of honesty, courage, or the like; integrity: It takes character to face up to a bully.
    5. reputation: a stain on one's character.

    Generally I would take a firm stand on this issue but this time I am going to try to make a point in a much different way.

    Neither Candidate is Perfect!
    They Both Have Their Faults and Flaws!

    The majority of you on this topic are unwilling to see that this is the case.

    From the Devil's advocate position:
    Romney is lying about Money. Obama is lying about a Birth Certificate.
    Romney is flip floppy on many issues. Obama changed his stand on Same Sex Unions.
    Neither Served in the Military but for extremely different reasons:
    Romney took advantage of a total of 4 Student Deferments, 1 Ministerial Deferment and an extremely high draft lottery number.
    Obama took advantage of the fact that there was no draft and there fore his services were NOT required.
    They are both religious. Regardless of the Church or Faith....

    Neither has had any "Indiscretions" Neither has committed a felony.

    They are as individual and distinct as each and every one of us are.
    I am certain that some of you do not possess the ideal characteristics that every American Citizen would want in a POTUS either.

    Do you not call it a felony when he lied that he had no other names like Barry Soroto when he was sworn in and when he swore to uphold the constitution when he has dismantled it.

    I don't think so.

    Romney will not produce his tax records, so he must have a lot to hide.

    And then there's the fact that Mitt Romney and Ted Bundy have a lot in common.

    In fact, they may have been personally acquainted.

    They both attended the Republican National Convention in Miami in 1968.

    You've got to wonder . . . who inspired whom?

    Obviously too much of this is rolled up in people's politics and character is a difficult standard to agree on. I actually believe BOTH of these guys at their core have some pretty good attributes of what I would call character. We seem to love to tear down our candidates who are people who have risen to the top but let's be honest - most of us wouldn't have the 'stuff' (character) to do that. If I have one concern more towards Mitt than towards Barrack I'd say that I believe that Mitt is unwilling to stand-up to the right wing extremists in his party.- he needs a McCain moment where he stands up to a RWNJ.
