    Does it not bother anyone how far in debt this preident has gotten this country? He may have inherited something from Bush, but he sure has not solved the problem but has made it 3x worse. Another 4 years of Obama and there will be no return to the USA that gave us the quality of life we have all enjoyed. Think about it all of you who are unemployed. Jobs and the debt go hand and hand!

    Cool. Another Mitt Romney etch-a-sketch moment. Romney picks Paul Ryan as his V.P. and less then 24 hours later Romney throws Paul Ryan under the bus by trying to etch-a-sketch himself from Ryan's Budget Plan gutting medicare and social security. Begging the question ........... why did Mitt Romney pick Paul Ryan - aka Ayn Rand - aka Atheist lover to begin with? Good God, Paul Ryan is such a fan of Ms Rand that he is on record for mandating all of his staffers read Ayn Rand fairy tales. Ryan's own budget is based on Ayn Rand philosophy. The same budget Mitt Romney promised a few months ago to sign into law. Guess this is the secret Mitt is talking about when he states "if they knew what my plans are, they won't vote for me". I'm guessing Romney probably has that right ... we won't.

    This is not a surprise! It was pretty much a done deal when Romney endorsed Pauls budget plan! The rumors where flying then! This "VP search" has been for show & suspence, I think! But the team is completely in synch! Romney is for taking away every necessity we pay taxes for & Ryan has the "blueprint" to get it done! I mean, American Catholic Nuns went on a road trip to speak against Ryan's budget! But still This is Romneys pick! As we would say in my writing workshop, a few words about some 1 in their natural environment, is worth more than an essay about some 1 in their business mode! We want to know the real person who has dedicated himself to public service! Not seeing that from either of these GOTP picks!!

    It is extremely insulting that these two men would use a WW II SHIP to announce this, especially when neither served their country. It is an insult to WW II veterans who fought and died – it is an insult to vets and soldiers who have currently served. How dare they try to place themselves on equal ground with our vets/soldiers just so they can wave the flag and say "vote for me". My grandfather served in the pacific and saw a lot of blood and won a silver star. Romney and Ryan couldn't even wipe his boots and yet they use this ship to make themselves look "american".

    Question for Mitt Romney (since he is a Bishop on his way to becoming God):

    Why did God encourage Abraham & Sarah to lie in Abraham 2:24? Isn’t lying a sin according to the 10 commandments? Why did God tell Abraham and Sarah to lie when 2 Nephi 9:34 condemns liars to hell?

  7. hate from the left but mostly lies

    Do any of you liberal idiots live in reality? Even just a little bit? All you ever do is worship Obama as the new messiah and say that Romney is evil incarnate and is worse than the devil if he was a pedifile. The sheer amount of immatureity that goes on around this blog is astonishing. Want to prove me wrong? Give me a LOGICAL arguement that does not talk down about anyone. You morons can't do it, can you?

    We must unite against the GOP they have literally taken our money from our children’s mouth's they are for the 1% only they do not care for the rest of us the hard workers. they say only small business's create jobs and the big corporations haven’t done anything to boost our economy while posting huge profits. why? the GOP is in their back pocket's. why should they get a tax break? while the only people who are getting hurt is the 99% think about it. no more GOP. Vote them out in November or you will be poor.

    The pick of Ryan indicates the Romney campaign has decided not to go after Hispanic voters, seniors, moderates and independents. Ryan is another polarizing figure like Palin or Bachmann. His extreme conservative social engineering proposals for Medicare and the Budget will benefit the wealthiest 1% at the expense of seniors, poor, and middle class.

    Similar to 2008, Romney made a polarizing choice by going far right and dividing both sides instead of choosing the political center.

    Obama/Biden 2012.

    hate but mostly lies,
    Here is a logical argument for you. Romney/Ryan budget plan does not add up and will add trillions more to the deficit COMPARED to Obama's plan. This is what happens when you cut even more taxes on top of the Bush tax cuts but refuse to specify spending cuts, because you can't. Take out defense spending, the biggest item in the budget which Romney wants to increase, and the next two biggest items are Social Security and Medicare. Romney can't be specific because he needs the senior vote.

  14. GOP puts "$" in "chri$tian" since 60% of the GOP believes they should not care for those less fortunate!

    Ayn Rand of whom Paul Ryan is a disciple, wrote a tome on how "Selfishness is a virtue"!

    Not too worry Seniors, elect him and see!
