    romney – go home. no one listens to you. no one cares. it is clear to all you are an opportunistic phoney who swings both ways when it suits his political needs. obama, on the other hand, is a fine man of principle who puts it all on the line and means what he says, even years later. bye bye boo hoo boy – back to your GOP (I mean GIP) minions who will pray for you, unless you are the wrong religion, race, color or creed, much less have a different opinion on an issue. they, like you, are the capital L losers.

    26000 Americans die each year becuase they do not have health care – if they had struck down Obamacare – that numbee would more than double

    In the USA can you not charge the four judges that tried to strike it down with ATTEMPTED MURDER?

    here in Canada we have human rights laws that would let us jail your four judges – see if you can get them to visit Canada – we will put them in jail abd give them a hearing in 2 years

    Ill bet Romney is feeling really bad today. Him & his wife said a month ago or so on T.V. that they DESERVED to be in the W/H. His wife said in that interview also , " It's OUR turn " Thats pretty gutsy considering that they actually believe anyone is DESERVEING or it's just ANYBODYS turn ?. Whats all that about ? I'd say thats pretty Egotistical, Vein and Narcasistic. It amazes me the Romneys act like their ABOVE the regular people and are to be held to the highest level with no stops not even to be in the White House. Well, thats not going to happen in November because President Obama will be re-elected .

    @sayitstr8r. That is funny...Obama has no room to talk. He waits until his LAST term in presidency to come out and support gay marriage and make a HUGE decision on illegal immigration. Politics is politics. You think it is a coinsidence that Obama made these BIG decisions when he did. Give me a break. Obama....a fine man of principle? Thats enough to make me laugh. He is no better than Romney on any level. Oh...and just to let you know, Obama PROMISED immigration reform (Bill) in his first year of presidency. Did that happen? Nope, just like any other dirty politician he waited until it was convenient for his re-election. Obama..."means what he says" ...judge for yourself

    R-Money & the Republican Party LOST today and now all of a sudden, the Supreme Court is not so SUPREME anymore – Where was the OUTRAGE for the Citizen United vote???

    The Republicans really believed they were going to win this – As a matter of fact, I thought so too and was SHOCKED at the results... Well, now I guess I will SPIKE the ball while the Republicans BOO-HOO until November.

    Obama 2012 – The Only Trusted Way Forward!!

    You notice in the picture, the placard reads "repeal and replace"
    Yet the only tweets today by GOP'ers was repeal. Repeal, Repeal, Repeal.
    What happened to the replace? oh yeah, they don't have an answer for that, just like no answer for the economy, jobs, immigration, womens rights, GLBT, Equal pay, and the list is long and not so distinguished.

    The GOP doctrine holds true today: They will compromise only if the other side agrees with them. I thought Americans pride themselves from seceeding from England because of taxation without representation, but apparently in America, he who has the gold makes the rules.

    the GOP had 11 years to come up with something. They (along with the democrats) have known the health care system is broken...GOP did NOTHING!!!! in the normal business world, if you see a problem fix it, if you don't, you're FIRED!!!!!

    Romney needs to go to the planet kolob the mormon cult heaven. Romney supported an individual mandate for his health care plan in his state of Massachusetts so why is he upset.

    This man changes his opinion faster that most of us change clothes. He created the framework for Obamacare and is now denouncing it. How can you write the book on it and then turn around and tell the public that you're against the concept? Romney better go back to talking about the economy. Oh that's right, he's the guy that thinks shipping jobs overseas is a good tactic. He could talk about investment, but then he have to explain his offshore accounts. He could talk about job creation, but then he'd have to explain why Massachusetts was 47th in job creation during his tenure.

    Then again, maybe he could just stop talking altogether. Wouldn't that be a relief!

    Romney=the worst Republican in the country to put up against Barack Obama

    “I should tell my story,” Romney said, after listening to the group of unemployed Floridians. “I’m also unemployed.”

    My sons are all adults and they've made decisions about their careers and they've chosen not to serve in the military and active duty and I respect their decision in that regard. One of the ways my sons are showing support for our nation is helping me get elected because they think I'd be a great president
