    Obvious dog whistle politics. As a person of color and considerable influence on Wall Street, it only tells me that Romney would not be friendly to an America that is growing more diverse and multicultural by the day.

    I think we should have the goverment buy Wallmart , that would reduce joblessness ,debt, and increase capital , and they can tax them selves. We should figuring out a way to make money not spend it or give it away.

    That's right CNN – almost every Ticker posted is about ROBmoneyHOOD – That's right, keep him upfront so the entire world can see how much of a MITT-WITT he is and how much he LIES!!

    Whew, if my grandmother was his mother, Romney will be blowing bubbles out of his mouth every time he opened it – She would have run out of dish detergent washing the lies out of his mouth!!! Jeez!!

    Republicans are very quick with the liar liar, or you lie bit, but when its pointed out on this welafare issue by the maximum untrue assessment by two independent fact checking organisations and they still want to campaign on it!?
    Me at least I have had enough of thier duplicity, hypocrisy, Do nothing but say NO while the country needs action, and wants us all to believe that more unpaid for taxcuts ( the existing Bush II taxcuts = 36% of the curent annual budget deficit) and a legislative and economic status Quo of 2008 which caused a global and US recession is todays magic bullet solution for everything. And we must also have to the most expensive war machine ever. Never mind the Budget act supported by 70 % of them.
    How are they going to pay for that " gutting entitlements and welfare" which just to balance the budget ( does not mean paying off a penny of debt) needs p.a$1.3tr in savings hurting the 98% most.
    We need a better more balanced approach please.

    Romney is stirring up a hornest nest with Bill Clinton and that he doesn't want to do. He is flat out lying through his teeth but of course Romney has to say what his billionaire friend like Adelson and the rest direct him to. They have bought him and he is a slave for the GOP shackled and chained in the 21st century..

    Totally debunked.

    It's a ploy by republicans to distract from the call for robingme's taxes - the ten years he paid none at all. In fact, it wouldn't surprise me if he got a refund, what with his $70,000 tax deductible horse.
