  1. Feed the greed

    I am aware of no plan by Romney that reduces the deficit or creates jobs. In fact the plans I've heard from the Romney camp, increase the deficit and would cost jobs. Hey wait a minute, that's what happens when Bain capitial buys a company. Please if Romney has a new plan fill me in, if not don't feed the greed vote Barack Obama for President.

    What's happening to Romney is the American People are seeing what this man is all about. He is known for being a coward, ran to France under the guise of his church. In many circles he is a good business man, in others he is a man who broke other men down by closing their companies, these men lost their insurance, lost their pensions and lost their income, to top it off the govt. had to step in with millions to save their retirement income they worked for so many years to save. and he keeps his money offshore and won't admit to what he's playing in taxes. Total CON ARTIST!!!!

    George Romney resisted releasing a single year of taxes, arguing that it wouldn't present an accurate picture...but then he made a surprising offer: He would release the past 12 years of tax returns...That way, it wouldn't look like a stunt

    Gosh if I read and I did the blog post by your political commentator using the same CNN/ ORC survey this video almost completely leave the opposite impression and would leave you believing Romney is way way ahead .
    I cannot understand how the same medis different reporters give such diverging analyses. An you leav out of the aforemetioned Video post the Obama 52/45 lead on the next president vote. UGH.
