    Nice name Grow but sadly not true. When you convince the president to show us ALL the papers from Fast and Furious, when he shows us all his college papers and thesis papers then I will convince Mitt to show his tax returns. Also I want to see your tax returns!

    NO idea, no class, no solutions, no way to communicate facts and Mitt is proud of it! It is a real insult to the world (since he is on the “world stage” now…) to present this one dimensional greedy man as a presidential candidate. The same as with Duba – first the world excused the choice (one can make a mistake, right?) but then a lot of Americans showed what an uneducated, ignorant bunch they had really become. Are they going to do it again after what they and the world have been through with the last GOP President and his administration???

    Great insight Mitt. America has been committed to Israel since her conception, and I haven't heard anybody say that it
    should change. Next subject.

    It's people like Romney who put themselves before country .

    If he was Israeli , maybe one of his five sons would have served i the military

    Americans will heave a sigh of relief if Romney will make a final stop in Poland.

    A vote for Romney is a vote for going to war with Iran. This is the more pressing issue than that of thinking of changing the economy. It does not make much sense, having good economy at the same time lives and money are wiped away with war. Also we have to think, once the war in Iran is initiated, it will destroy the entire world economy including US.

    Support for Israel has and will always be critical for every President including Obama and he's shown "don't mess with Israel" and Iran won't as long as Obama is President. Romney would only embolden Iran and I don't think Israel will take that chance.
