    How come Romney is a money and knows what our country needs but it is going to take 8-10 for it to work. If he can't do it in 4 years why did he expect Obama to. Why does he keep talking about Obama being there 4 years. He won't be there four years until he gets voted in again

    I would much rather have a guy running this country that can manage his money smartly, and if that means moving it out of the US so he doesnt have to pay taxes on it. Thats just smart! If i had so much money that it would be financialy smart to do the same. I would . That is being a good iwith money. That is what this country needs.

    What President Obama is speaking on in reference to Veterans is awesome. The only problem is, a lot of times military dependants will preside over job opportunities

    Romney wont balance the budget when his policy differs with his running mate nor will the partisan gridlock in Washington be any easier for him.

    Is there anyone else in this country, other than Romney, who thinks we should not get out of Afghanistan. Someone please ask him how he would pay for this?

    Ohio will choose Romney. Just like they went with Bush twice. In 2008 Ohio and America did not have a candidate to get behind. Now we do!

    Sounds like Romney wants to send Mormon missionaries to the middle east to convert them from their evil ways.

    Obama is coherent and a world leader! Romney strikes me as a bully and only good for the 2% that controls 98% of the US wealth..

    Governor Romney you just agreed with everything President Obama said. You have constantly repeated what the president said. President Obama has been clear and has said what his plans are. Governor Romney you quote percentages. In a debate there is one golden rule. Governor Romney you should not be rude or interupt the moderator. I hope President Obama wins because he is a strong leader. Go Barack!

    Bain Capital, Bain Capital... you sound like magpies. I could say "Chicago Politician" and it would hold as much weight. You love Unions, go watch the documentary Waiting for Superman about the despicable state of education thanks to Teacher's Unions, then tell me unions are a good thing. I'll say it again 4 more years of spiraling debt or someone who has actually balanced a budget.

    Gov. Romney, you have my vote. I will not fall for this Presidents rhetoric nor his rude, smug, interrupting, denying lies. The Military doesn't back him. Because he doesn't back them! Wounded warrior Project wouldn't be needed if this administration took care of of them!
