    :) This is priceless. The SOCIOROBOT is at a christian university where most of the graduates don't want him. If that wasn't bad enough he has the paw man speaking for him?
    I bet both get the small crowds that they have had and still have campaining. How patheric. Cut anyone's hair lately flip flopper? How about no more dogs on top of SUVs. You laughed at that also.
    Maybe my new name for you is for real. See above.

    ANN ROMNEY SAID:
    ►"I still look at him as the boy that I met in high school when he was playing all the jokes and really just being crazy, pretty crazy," she said. "There's a wild and crazy man inside of there."◄

    I SAID WHEN THIS WAS SPOKEN:
    "This statement will come back and BITE MITTens in the but in the future..." And it did!! Beating up someone who was gay when he was younger and then today NOT standing up for someone he hired that is gay because of the far-right – is NOT what America wants!!!

    I am growing increasingly more tired of listening to politicians who think they know what the American people want, i.e., "Americans don't want women to have the right to choose regarding personal and health issues in their lives." If you put that statement as a question in the privacy of a voting booth, I believe the American people will speak the truth in volumes and state that women should have a right to choose about anything they have control over in their lives, and no law should ever state otherwise. Get my drift? I would vote for the dogcatcher before I would vote for anyone who wishes to restrict my ability to make my own decisions.

    The closest Romney will ever get to the White House is in name only the day after Obama wins his re-election, he takes his dog out on the White House lawn for a walk and to greet the Press and stops to scoop the poop his dog makes with a newspaper with Willard-the-middle-class-killer’s name on the front declaring, "Obama Wins Re-election while Romney Loses bid for White House by a wide margin."

    evangelicals are hipocrates. Call mitts religion a cult and no christian and now let him make the address. So much for your religious beliefes. So why get upset about gay marriage or abortions? You throw out some of your beliefes but not all. Just like all the other wing nuts. One flip flopper derserves another. None of these people have any values they just spout them when needed. Obama 2012 At least he says what he believes.
