    For the past 12 years, the Republican party brought America to it's knees and it hasn't let up on the destruction of America yet.

    ANYONE who votes for the Mitt Romney/Paul Ryan ticket, or any other Republican who has done nothing but obstruct progress in Congress after 2007 out to be ashamed of himself/herself.

    ANYONE who publicly promotes Mitt Romney/Paul Ryan ought to look at these two "candidates" and shudder. It's bad enough America's middle class has already suffered under Republican ideology. A Romney presidency will not only recreate all that when wrong in 2007, but insure that the same policies which caused such suffering are once again brought back to the front burner ... including adding another war to our coffers.

    If the news media and others have decided that obama will win does our vote even count? Is this not the sign of Socialistic thinking. Prepare one world government then.

    If Dems don't take control of the House and gain a "super" majority in the Senate, Obama's job will be signing veto after veto. Nothing will get done and our hatred towards politicians will only increase. VOTE DEMOCRAT ACROSS THE BOARD!

    As someone who loves Evangelical Christianity but loaths the Right Wing politics which has come to define that movement, I am working and praying for Obama's victory for two reasons. One, I believe he and Joe B. are the better candidates. Two, I think if Evangelicalism is to be saved (pun intended) it first must be humbled.

    Approximately 2 months ago Dick Cheney went to Washington to make sure the Republicans don't cut defense spending for Halliburton because it is necessary to keep wars going for profit, that's what they place above all else, profit. They are heavily invested in these companies on the stock market and if there is no war, no big defense contracts, they don't profit. It's all about the "Benjamin" for Republicans and you better believe it.

    The MSM has already decided that Obama is going to be re-elected and is moving heaven and earth to make it so. The Polls are stacked in the way the pollsters want them to be indicating, and it now up to the voters that are coherent and knowledgeable and can see through the smoke and mirrors to save America, and SEND OBAMA back to Chicago.

    Romney has only one great political asset and that is he can reverse his stance on a dime and give change

    Obama will probably win. How did we get to the point that we are willing to give four more years to the most narcissistic, self-serving, corrupt president and the most inept vice president in history? Obama is the guy willing to sacrifice workers so that government contractors don't deliver bad news before election day. Obama is the one who said, "This is my last election. After my election I will have a lot more flexibility." He's clearly intent on pulling a bait and switch. And Biden, well, the list is just too long. This is what we want? Seriously?

    your favorite fat-man governer says "stop whining about the bogus poll issue" because he knows it's merely a losing right wing ruse trying to explain their flawed candidates' upcoming humiliation. The only one going anywhere is Flip and Queen Ann Romney...back to their car elevator

    I live in Dallas County which has been decidedly BLUE in Pres. elections since John Kerry's run.

    Mitt Romney doesn't just "stumble" when he speaks. He actually believes in class warfare and that the only people who matter are the one who have made a ton of cash. The 47% he is writing off are the very same people who work in these companies, fields and factories who made the companies (and their owners/shareholders) PROSPER! But now he would have us all believe they did it all on their own. In Texas (and other states) their is an old saying that goes.... "Dance with the one that brung you". Well... the Republican establishment has thrown the American worker overboard a long, long time ago and the only way that real America, "Middle" America is going to survive is if we overthrow the oligarchy that has its boot on our neck.

    Vote Democat. Across the board. Give Obama the majority he needs to actually get things moving again in this country and send the obstructionist Republicans HOME to sit this term out.

    "How did we get to the point that we are willing to give four more years to the most narcissistic, self-serving, corrupt president and the most inept vice president in history?"

    Simply because the alternative is unthinkable.... sad but true.

    It is all about choices. Obama proises are just that promises that never were ment to be kept, just rhetoric to gain the American peoples trust and win an election. Never really held a job, work mostly for local, state or federal governments as an community organizer, his interest is to have more people be also beholding to local, state or federal government.

    Did he every live amongst the people in the community he was to be helping, NO! He lived in the richer more affulent neigberhood of Hyde Park, in Chicago. Gaining support from rich , affulent neighbors, so to further his political goals. He has continued his association to those upon who backs he climbed up on, brought them with him to the Oval office. His actions helpped the unions, friends and donors. If elected there will be no stopping Oabama from filling the rest of his goals, taking USA and the American people down the commode. Remember he has already told the President of Russia,"I'll have more flexablity after I'am re-elected".
