  3. Obama 2012 - BEND Forward America, take another 4 long years of OBAMA FAILURE

    Romney – a class act all the way, successful, competent.
    Obama – liar, class warfare specialist, excuse maker, a failure, totally incompetent Chicago thug.

    Romney – 2012 – The ONLY SANE Choice

    @"Obama 2012" – - you've made it quite clear over the last few weeks that you are NOT in a position to judge what's sane or insane. Oh, and.."BEND Forward America" – - closeted and self-hating much???

    Oh please-only the ones who have any interest will inquire about it. Why is CNN wasting any time on this?

    Romney – 2012 – The ONLY SANE Choice

    How is Obama a class wardfare specialist? Did he get a degree or just a certificate?
    And a Chicago thug? Does he take milk money from teenagers in a dark alley?

    It sounds like you're really terrified to have Obama better the country for you.

  15. 92 Days until Obama is RE-ELECTED

    @BEND !!!
    You must have been on vacation... do they let right wing trolls take vacation?
    Can you publicly call a sitting POTUS a liar ?
    If it's conjecture and opinion then it is probably OK, but then most of your right wing ranting in parroted Faux Noise garbage anyway, and worthless.
    And what does it have to do with the most famous tax-deductible horse in living memory ?? Nada !

    When you read the right wingnuts posts, you get an idea as to what happens to discussion when those republican jobs have been outsourced to foreign countries. Speak English wingnuts!

    @ You People Aint Seeing Our Tax Returns

    The medals' ore actually is mined and refined and made here in Utah. you know, the place recently referred to as "the middle of nowhere" by London. Kind of ironic.

    Do mormon horses have multiple partners. Do they wear magic underwear ? Do they get to go to the planet kolob ?

    So that's what Romney's $77,000 tax deduction looks like.

    How low can the democrats go to use a horse for their campaign? Let us talk about unemployment and economy on how obama can achieve his promise in 2008 to cut 10Trillion Debt in half in his first 4 years when the FACT deficit is now at 15T and cut unemployment down and yet we are at 8.3%
