    What about? Spill the bad beans and nobody will vote for you, but not your shortlist of Blue Endorsers.

    Romney keeps saying that the President has not presented a job plan to the congress. When will the media start calling him out on these deliberate LIES?

    A politician who refuses to apologize for his deliberate LIES is not fit to be president, and the media that keep ignoring these flagrant LIES are worse than the politician

    Let's sigh the work bill, we need to work then worry about the debt. With out work we will go down. Tax the rich the same as us workers. Fare tax!!! We as Americans have a way of life. Keep our S.S. no matter the cost. Stop wellfare mis use. Stop doctors from robbing us. Stop meds from costing so much. Stop the companies from so much profit. Keep our middle class alive. Stop our country from trying to control us. Obama

    We have probably heard this all before. I guess he will be blaming Europe now. Congress wants to extend all tax breaks for at least another year I say for 10 years. Maybe after November.

    I smell a tactic here. Remember the '08 lame-duck session of congress? The Bush tax cuts were set to expire in days. The then-democrat house passed an extension of those cuts for 98% of us, but not the wealthiest 2%. The republicans in the senate filibustered and defeated the bill. Then Obama proposed an extension that included the wealthiest. The GOP gave him the extension, the payroll tax cut, an extension on jobless benefits and the repeal of DADT in the military. Lesson-the GOP will give anything to protect those tax cuts for the rich.

    After the election there will be another lame-duck session with the expiration of the Bush tax cuts on the horizon. Obama is already saying he wants the cuts to expire. This puts a ton of pressure on the republicans. I think Obama is laying the groundwork for the next lame-duck session.

    Will we hear the old "Hope & Change" speech again? Or, it's Bush's fault? Or, Joe Biden will fix it when he wins in 2016. Or, If you give me 4 more years I can create more shovel ready jobs. Or, those millionaires are not paying enough taxes, so it prevents the government from controlling more of your life. Or, if you close your eyes, click your heels three times, and say "theres no place like Cuba, theres no place like Cuba, theres no place like Cuba", and magically America will be just like Cuba.

    Greece, Spain, sooner than later – Divided States of America.

    If you thought 1929 wouldn't happen again... Think again if you Dem's vote this guy back in for 4 more years. Please send BHO, Nancy P, and Harry R. back home. Clean house. Start over. Give Hillary a chance. Bill can make sure she is successful. He has more strings to pull, friends and favors to call in. They can turn this sinking ship around.
