Romney repeats his claim of hatred in Obama's campaign

(CNN) - President Barack Obama wrapped up a three-day bus tour of Iowa on Wednesday by accusing Mitt Romney of dishonest attacks on his record, while the certain Republican nominee continued to call Obama's re-election effort a hateful divide-and-conquer strategy.

With less than three months until the November election, the negative campaign has become even more bitter since Romney chose House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan as his running mate.

    @hate from the left but mostly lies

    Romney has no plan so I don't know how you could know what's in it. Perhaps you have insight into his taxes too!

    I am by NO MEANS voting for Romney.

    But to the rest who are....if he is elected, may you get ALL the hardship you DESERVE.

    Never....and I mean NEVER, in all my travels around this globe, seen a voting block dumber and more IGNORANT than the American voting bloc.

    As my football coach used to say......" Jeeeeee-suuuuuuuuuus Christ ! "

    I'm not going to guess that Obama and Biden's attacks on their rivals are hatred deliberately. But the unpleasant counterattacks would help Obama's supporters stay around him.

    we have 2 choices ln this years election. Vote Romney and the the economy will likely still be bad. Re-elect Obama and it will be worse.

    Can the left stop with the lies of "Romney will give tax cuts to the rich". Outright lie. He will keep the bush era tax cuts, which means everyone keeps the same tax rate you are paying now. Rich, middle class, poor. I know my taxes are about 2k more with the bush tax cuts. To the left please stop with the class warfare. Also, a vote for obama is a vote to raise prices of fuel and food. He told you before he was elected that he would do it and he is.

    Romney's no saint either. Has he forgotten the way that he advertised during the primary? It seems that way.

    Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan and republicans states continue hate and discriminate against Hispanic or in Texas they call us MIXICANS by changing voting laws. They know that majority of us vote for democrats and they continue to violate our civil rights. Its like going back to the 60's when they did that African Americans.

    My only comment is that for those that want a great America PLEASE EDUCATE yourselves on the candidates and their positions to make an informed well thought out vote this Novermber. I'm sorry that the many posters on this board refuse to make their vote their own and just vote without consideration of how your vote not just effects yourself but everyone else in the country. I have been reading and researching both candidates and my vote will not be to re-elect Mr. O'Bama in November..

  10. Under the Ryan Plan, Romney Pays 0.87% in taxes

    Mittens and the GOP are throwing everything except the kitchen sink at their base to keep their hatred toward the President stirred up.

    Lord knows, the GOP can't motivate its base with a list of accomplishments or any proof that their policies actually work (my favorite: tax cuts create jobs here in the U.S. .... HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!)

    Obama/Biden 2012 = The only sane choice

    Mr Romney...I'd rather have my president run a campaign of hate against his opponent as opposed to a campaign of hate against working people, women, minorities, gay people, students, elderly, etc., championed by YOU!
