    EXPECT ROMNEY'S POLL NUMBERS TO PLUMMET AS AMERICANS WITNESS IS THE EASE AT WHICH ROMNEY & RYAN LIES SO EFFORTLESSLY

    'Etch-a-sketch Romney' now knows that the embassy statement that condemned the Muslim-hating movie was made prior to any attacks on any U.S. Embassy. And therefore, the 'first' Cairo embassy statement had nothing to do with the attack that came later. Even Bill O'Reilly acknowledged that.

    Yet 'Lying Mitt' continues to falsely claim that President Obama sanctioned an apologetic embassy statement after the Cairo embassy was attacked. The facts say opposite and Romney is clearly wrong. Now that Romney knows he was wrong, 'Lying Mitt' does not have enough integrity or character to acknowledge he was wrong and jumped-the-gun without the facts.

    I don't believe your Poll. What I do believe is CNN is an operative arm of the Democrat Party. CNN is using propangda to influence the minds of weak people to vote for Obama.

    We are in times of great turmoil. Fledgeling democracies trying to be formed. It takes time.

    I'm all for an intelligent, thoughtful, even-handed President. We had 8 years of "shoot from the hip" "bring it on crap" and it bankrupted us.

    24 days to early voting in some states.

    Obama/Biden for a steady calm hand at the wheel.

    Romney is clueless on foreign policy, wrong on vouchers for medicare, wrong on Detroit, wrong on tax cuts for himself at the expense of the middle class, wrong on wars, wrong on Libya, wrong on Syria, wrong on jobs, wrong on vulture capitalism, wrong on Iraq, wrong on the embassies in Libya and Egypt, wrong on immigration, wrong for not showing his taxes for the last ten years etc.

    Romney is absolutely losing ground. Hey!!!! He is such an idiot.

    Funny how the great Obama campaign news room has this but if people will search themselves local polls in the very same states show an entirely different story. Could it be the CNN and others in the media don't want the truth to be seen and hope people wont vote and hand Obama yet another election?

    If Romney loose it will take Republicans 32 years to smell the White House. My critics might say how or why so. The reality of the matter is that 79% of Americans are Progressives. That's the Rock-Solid fact. Republicans must learn a hard lesson of inclusion not exclusion. The spirit that beat the drum for Republicans is in the ground. That's the reason why they don't listen to voice of reason. Use to be one. Obama 2012!!!!

    Mitt Romney is NOT going to be the nexrt President of the United States of America for the following reasons:
    1) Most Americans really dislike and have little respect for a person that changes his position on MAJOR social issues every couple of years.
    2) Most Americans do not trust a VERY WEALTHY person that decides to run for President and REFUSES to show at least 5 years of tax returns.
    3) Most Americans feel it takes an empty somewhat AMORAL soul to earn millions of dollars by purchasing struggling companies, strip them of their worth, and FIRE thousands of employees destroying their pensions.
    4) Most Americans feel it is improper to inject oneself in a political manner hours after a tragic event in a foreign country.
    And last but not least...he is just an absolutely HORRIBLE candidate...he is going to lose....

    HE WILL LOSE EVERY THING BECAUSE HE THINKS HE MUST USE LIES TO WIN THE ELECTION. BUT YOU SEE, GOD KNOWS THE MIND & HEART OF EVERY HUMAN BEING. ROMNEY IS FAKE. THE AMERICAN PEOPLE DON'T KNOW THIS. TO ROMNEY, GOD MAY HAVE BLESS YOU TO BE A BUSINESS MAN.EVEN THAT HAS MANY QUESTIONS. YOU EXPLOIT PEOPLE TO GET RICH. BUT GOD DID NOT ADD TO YOUR BLESSING THAT YOU WILL BE A PRESIDENT. YOU'RE OVER AMBITIOUS.

    It's all about the Republican's greatest problem. America isn't a collection of angry, bigoted, fearful people who aren't smart enough to see the damage done by Republican obstructionism. They see Romney as a bought-and-paid-for candidate of the Koch brothers and supported by an ill-informed and delusional base. Independents are too smart to fall for the Fox News sound-bites.

  18. Fat-cats are worried

    We can expect an influx of money from the Koch brothers et. al. as they try to double-down on their investemt. They made the mistake of under-estimating the American people and assuming we were too stupid to understand the issues. To them, Romeny is all aout no environmental or banking regulations, low tax rates and generous tax loopholes. The ideology is all cr@p they use to get the "poor folks" angry. Independents are too smart for that.

    Not news...

    So what else do we expect. Mitt & Ryan are not ready for prime time, not ready for leadership and not ready for the international community, period. This is really not news, it was expected.

  21. ThinkAgain: Mittens 'n' Munster are Liars

    The more Mittens talks, the less people support him. And what's with his wife saying she walked in on GW Bush getting a massage?!? As if she was just wandering around the White House and stumbled upon GW with nothing but a towel on – wouldn't there be Secret Service guarding the door?

    I'm beginning to think Ann is as much a liar as her hubby ...

    Republican women in virginia organizing against all the women's health-care nutty bills introduced the last few month by republicans.

    24 days to early voting in some states.

    Obama/Biden for an intelligent steady hand going forward -– and for women's rights.

    I don't think the polls are going to mean very much this time around. Remember, when Reagan ran against Carter, the polls showed it very tight, all the way up to the day of the election, as a matter of fact, it was neck & neck. Then Reagan defeated Carter by a landslide. I guess if someone asked me who I liked the Least, between Obama & Romney, I would have to say on a 1 to 10 scale, as #10 being the most LEAST – Romney a 10 & Obama a 9.This means that I would have to Vote for Obama, since Romney is my most dis-liked.

    After watching Ryan’s outrageous and blatant lies about Obama’s relations with Israel today require someone to return Ryan’s lies with a serious counter charge!

    Ryan and Romney are now going way over the line with – outright fabrications and lies beyond Pale!

    Ryan has no sense of responsibility whatsoever!
    It is hard to believe anyone running for the highest office in the land would be able to get away with this behavior without being called out!

    Romney is moving further to the right !!!!!!! Pretty soon he will priss himself right off that flat earth he and his fellow cultists believe in. Wonder if all his wives will go with him?
