    Obimbo at it again. Boy he can lie. He had a hand in the death of Americans in Libya. Romney is right America has not been leading. Obama is a born liar.

    Haven't heard Romney say a single original thought. Odd strategy if he wants to differentiate himself.

    How did we become the worlds policy force on human rights? How can we afford to be responsible for the rest of the world with US dollars and US lives?

    The worlld is too volatile at the moment for a Republican Presidency. Republicans are bunch of war mongers aod radicals.

    I would like to know why is America butting in to these Middle East countries I do not ever see any of them forcing their cultures on us. Why can't we just stay home and take care of our people

    They are both boring so far......Obama needs to win big or he is in trouble.....based on the past history of elections, no candidate has ever lost that is at 50% going into the last few weeks....then again......everyone is arguing with what the poles say.

    I cant standard Romney pontificating Poland - he has no idea what he is talking about - Polish people were UNEXCITED about him...

    Mitt remarks at Russia are stupid. I ask mitt to go home.

    Neither did Obama when he came in, the only reason he can talk it now, is because he has been in training with experts for days. His actions show his lack of understanding of foreign policy. He said his job is to keep Americans safe...He hasn't our troops have been killed in record numbers under his rules of engagement. And Americans unnecessarily killed while the state dept. watched and did nothing!

    Unreal so many of you are no doubt liberals! What has Obama done for YOU?
    Jobs, Homes many are at lost. Obama has had more VACATION then any other President. Four years this man has had time to do something. If Obama is voted back in. Question? Do you plan to be back on this blog if Obama fails?
    Because I will be back to ask you....now what? Let me also add his wife is no Jackie Kennedy. Enough to make a person throw up. Another thing.... Americans! do not bow to anyone like Obama has done. Yes there is pictures of Obama Bowing.

    The five points again, he said two twice and I think he missed a number and went straight to seven.

    I have one thing to say about the US being perceived as weak under Obama. Bin Laden

    hope and change, Im hoping for a big change in November-–jobs matter most. Democrats are a bunch of anti- war radicals that think flowers and peace signs make peace. Nice try but it doesn't work.....We need to carry a big stick.
