    After watching Mittens in the debate, I am convinced he should not be president. We do not need a CEO (condescending egotistical oligarch) who conducts himself like Dagwood Bumstead's boss, Mr. Dithers, or Fred Flintstone's boss, Mr. Slate.

    GOP is not at all trustworthy at this time. Bain-Capital shipped jobs to China and bought companies that offshored to China by a communist oil company. Obama12.

    Planned parenthood, I am going to get rid of that–I will veto DREAM ACT–I don't like equal pay for women–let Detroit go bankrupt–MITT ROMNEY.
    Shhhh....Wisconsin gov. Scott walker signed the billSB02, that overturned Equal Pay Enforcement Act allowing easier discrimination and continuity war on WOMEN. God bless us all.

    after looking at the schedule, looks like axelrod / plouffe / gibbs is directing obama to the buckeye state for a big reason. I thought florida was in play, but it may be out of the realm of a total win for them, not to mention that there is so much groundwork to cover.

    and then clinton is doing his thing for obama in the buckeye state.
