    Rassmussen has President Obama and Mittens tied. It appears that people got to see the true lying flip flopping uppity republican plutocrat in Tuesday's debate. If Obama survives $2 billion in negative ads, an obstructionist senate and house, and the efforts of Fox foreign owned media, America will be on the right track.

    Today, it is important to look at why Mittens, the uppity Mormon, had an approval rating in the low 30s when he was governor of MA. I wonder if it had to do with outsourcing MA government jobs to India, raising taxes on those who could least afford it over 700 times, vetoing 800 bipartisan bills, being 47th in job creation of all governors, or adding to the MA debt.

    Win or lose, Mittens the uppity Mormon, represents the last of the failed GOP. By 2016, the GOP will have gone the way of the Whig.

    Romney needs to explain what is meant by 2 Nephi 5 -21 in the book of Morman which basically says that Black people are cursed and the evidence is in their skin. Maybe Stacey Dash would be interested in that answer....

    Every day more and more information is coming out about the lack of leadership regarding the murder of 4 Americans in Libya. How can this President look at himself in the mirror without seeing a failed Presidendcy? How does he sleep at night ? We desperately need a CHANGE in the oval office and then maybe the American people can once again HOPE for a brighter, safer future, because right now economically things are not better and Americans don't feel safer with Obama/Biden at the helm!!!!

    Huh? Perry is stumpin' for Romney? Get outta here! I wonder if Perry is making good money off Romney to do that? That just has to be the case!

    People watch "The Mormon Candidate" on cable tv,it'll open your eyes on how this Mormon bishop is dangerous for America.His mormon followers are scared of what would happen to America and its people if Romney gets in there,he's an ego maniac that's extreme right for even mormons ..They interview excommunicated as well as mormons who just quit the church over their extreme guidelines. With taking children away from mothers at birth if they're single or being excommunicated if they don't!Or how even after quitting they're followed thru their lives by mormons who are exCIA,FBI people who compile info on each exMormon ,its beyond belief just how maniacal their religious policies are..You can leave the Mormon church but they say you'll never leave the Mormon religion,its a cult and exmormons state that in interviews on camera,that's how extreme their religion is and they say Romney is more extreme than that,now that's scarey in a man even the mormons who know him can't trust him.But he's your candidate and you better read up on him because he could do more damage than even a Bush could and that's catastrophic if you're up on his policies,no details,no specifics that's all he's done wanting you to vote for him on face value,you did that with Bush and look what he gave us!!

    Romney IS extreme. More so than any Evangelist out there. Unfortunately, "Lying for the Lord" is as common a Conservative ideology as it is a Mormon ideology. I suspect this is why Romney has Evangelists all believing he believes exactly what they believe - when in fact he doesn't. It is also why Romney gets away with his lies. He's been lying his entire life: to the Lord, to himself, and to all of us.

    I'll try again. Mitt fans tell Freeport Il. why he should POTUS. Then tell us what his plan is, you can only pick one.

    yes, i would suggest all read up on his mormanism faith......oh and specific to those in ohio.....there is an article in the Nation (under ABC news on-line) that outlines how Romney has made millions on the autobailout through both his & his wife's "blind trust".....you know, the blind trust that he reffered to as "an old-age rouse" basically used to hide money that did not have to be revealed how and where the money is made, back in his senator race against Ted Kennedy. You know, the thing he was against before he was for......i.e. he just hid behind his "blind trust" on the last debate while admitting he makes money from companies gone overseas, including China!!! One more thing, all i con't to see thus far is the romney-ryan team bashing the president with NO specifics revealed at all. At least with obama, you know thus far his policies have turned around the economy in a positive trend as compared to when he first took office. continuation of his ideas & poliicies will only con't to trend upward. Romney/ryan have only said they would 'close loopholes' but when asked which ones.....hmmm....still no answer 16 days b4 the election.
