    As much as it sucks that american workers lose jobs to other countries, But a lot of jobs in the US dont deserve minimum wage. working the BurgerKing grill, is not a $7 dollar an hour job, maybe $2., So if that means that i buy something from china at a reduced price. So i can strech my dollar. Well that is what ill do. Or start paying people what they deserve for there jobs, and lower all these PRICES!!!

    To declare China as a "currency manipulator" is protectionist, Governor. They still invest in us as the world's most stable currency.

    He does not pay 14% INCOME tax–he pays 14% capitol gains tax there is is big difference. He pays 14% on money he or his family already paid a huge percent of income tax on and now has invested in America–he has to pay 14% on the gains on that money. Geesh, you are listening to the lies. If he made $20 million in capitol gains and paid 14% on that it means he paid almost $3 million in capitol gains tax. Not to mention the fact that according to Joe Biden Mr. Romney donated 30% of last years income to charity! On his actual income he pays over 50% in taxes at his income level–don't be a hater just because he doesn't have to work. There are plenty of people in this country not working and earning an income that aren't paying any tax at all.

    China threw us under the bus when our national credit report was reviewed. They are NOT OUR allies. Nobody wants to accept the US dollar in other countries. How about we stop growing our debt...and fix our economy ...and not wait till we are so broke we can't even defend our country

    Maybe Romney will pay for it with the billions he stores in offshore accounts. Hey, that will lower our middle class taxes while he gives the rich more tax breaks! Oh yeah, right...he's rich so he's making sure he has long term tax breaks.

    As an American I believe that our nation is great because we allow people to dictate their future and the work put in dictates the success. I am a republican but voting Dem this election because we can not continue to send out resources to save nations that have settled their differences in war since before Jesus walked this earth.

    Stable currency. There's no such thing as stable currency. That's why everyone is buying gold, silver and etc.

    what kind of " magic wand " do you think Romney has??? You seriously think he can wave it and change the world on DAY ONE??? then you are smoking the funny stuff. Our President has worked tirelessly with a plate handed to him that was so full...thank you George W....LET HIM FINISH, The economy is on its way back! THANKS to Obama!!

    Hey Maggie. The tax codes werent written by Gov. Romney. And for your info., he actually paid mor than he had to. Obama has had 4the yrs to do something about the tax codes. He's done nothing. But he can talk a good talk.

    Romney is adrift. He genuinely has no clue when it comes to foreign policy. He said he wants to pressure Iran into compliance and in the same breath says he will indict their leader. He is guaranteeing a shooting war. His shaky domestic policy is bad enough. This is worse.

    That happens alot, Fake sproducts that are sold as genuine. If you have every lived in another country you would see that how much stuff is fake.

    Does the twit understand that those 20 million Chinese are going to have jobs thanks to him? He is contradicting himself that govt doesn't create jobs but as prez he is going to create 12 million jobs! Does he listen to himself? Sensata anyone?????

    The countless mothers who bury their sons and daughters over a culture of war that no American can understand should vote for President Obama.

    When I'm president Romney says he will do this and he will do that. Amazing how much power he thinks the president hAs. Is this a dictatorship. If life was that easy we wouldn't have these problems. Just like he wants women to not get the medical we need. Reverse roe vs wade. I will not have a man even the president tell me what religion I will follow and what I can and can not do medically. Maybe men should have to let women decide for them
