    Romney is ten times the leader Obama is. Mr. I-Vote-Present and the Leader-from-Behind have absolutely nothing over Romney.

  2. Former Republican, now an Independent

    Anyone who is paying attention knows that Romney doesn't have the backbone to make such a politically risky decision. He won't even stand up for his health care decisions as governor.

    The hand writing is on the wall for the GOP/TP. They know it and are throwing out anything hoping it will stick. Ann Romney acts like she is running for president. GOP don't hate the player hate the game and President Obama definitely has it going on more than Mittens. Mittens show me your Cayman bank accounts and tax returns, While you are at it show the birth certificate too. It is only fair that you follow the rules like your party expected President Obama to. Hearing crickets!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Also he killed Osama and he has every right to throw it out there. Now you have to think up another reason to bash him. By the way your record on the economy isn't selling. You have slashed more jobs and shipped them overseas to fill your own pockets and everyone knows it except your rightwing nuts who don't even like you or think that you are ready to be president. Hurry up and get here November.

    This makes Deputy Doublethink look so weak to be tacitly admitting he flip-flopped by fighting so hard on this one...even to the point that he went out and got Captain 911's official statemetn that Mittens too would have ordered the hit on OBL. It makes him look like the kid that got his stuffing knocked in the parking lot after school who then goes home and shadowboxes what he should've done to win the fight...then proceeds to pull the legs off spiders in teh basement to assuage his bruised ego. "No way man, I totally would've done it...I'm a tough guy too I swear!!!"

    I've yet to see any evidence of courage among the ranks fo the GOP/TEatrolls over the past decade other than the werid sort of courage it tkes to stand up in front of the country and lie your everloving balls off.

    While President Obama is out and about talking to our troops, Mitt is out and about talking to himself. Again.

    The "Real Truth and Nothing But Real Truth"

    Yeah, right! The "truth" according to whom, FOX entertainment? Faux News can't handle the truth so they do the next best thing, they make it up and hope you idiots bite. President Obama has more leadership qualities in his baby toe than Romney has in his entire pliable body. This man has lied so much, not even he can keep track. A leader has his own ideas and stands solid on them. What has Romney stood solid on? He has changed his positions more than Imelda Marcos changed shoes .Romney is no leader he's a chameleon. Where ever he may be at that time will determine his position. Yeah, that's the kind of leadership we need, someone incapable of making a solid decision!

  11. Another Day in the RW Idiot Mines

    "You don't have to look at farther than the comments here on the ticker every day to see fanatical liberals bashing everybody that disagrees with them. Negative commments from your group outnumber conservative at least four to one. Its simple math which I know is difficult for you Democrats."

    And here we have another defective rightwing mind that does not recognize or acknowledge that "facts have a liberal bias." We "bash" or, as some might also say, criticize, the GOBP cult because it is (a) delusional, (b) power-hungry, (c) bloodthirsty, (d) discriminatory, (e) tilted to assist the greedy, not the needy, and (f) irrational. These things are all proven facts, which you hatewingers (check Fakes News or hateradio if you want to see what truly hateful and ignorant "bashing" looks and sounds like) can't handle.

    "Romney is ten times the leader Obama is. Mr. I-Vote-Present and the Leader-from-Behind have absolutely nothing over Romney."

    NIce projection there! Rmoney is the one leading from behind with his pathetic flip-floppery.

  13. The REAL Truth.. (not the imposter)

    Sheesh.. yet another flip-flop from the king of floppers. That whom you want as President "nothing but..'??
    Ain't gonna happen, no matter how childish, boorish, immature, vacuous and [admittedly funny at times] your comments are. Pray tell.. how does one lead from behind? Oh you mean like Mittens heading to the Swiss bank while the employees get unemployment checks. Yeah, we need that kind of leadership.. not!

  14. American

    Romney would have said so if he meant so from start, not follow from behind.

    President Obama had the courage to say so from the start and the leadership to keep his promise. A big difference.

  15. GOP = Greed Over People

    Mr. 1% said it would cost "billions" if we tried to catch OBL.

    Too bad he gave the love of money a higher priority than the "cost" of 4500 young American lives.

    And him with 5 sons "too busy" with other things to fight for their country!
