    This is his attempt at connecting with the masses, and being a true American. By going to a soccer game. If he truly wanted to watch his grandson kick around a ball, he'd go to a park, or make every effort to go incognito. But no. He poses for pictures, smiles that infamous smile, and makes headlines.

    It amazes me so many Americans will vote for a guy that is building a home with an elevator for his cars at a time when the income gap between richest and poorest is at its widest in the us in 80 years even as he calls for tax policies that further increase the spread.

    I'll take a tired old mormon as President any day over an energetic Marxist eager to run our country into the ground.

    jJust vote people and get your friends and family out to vote.Send this dangerous, lying duo home to wherever that is. Maybe the Caymans are looking for a President! We are not. We have one who does show his tax statements.

    Romney doesn't want POTUS' job, just the title. The Presidency would be another trophy he bought for his den wall.

    Maybe halfway through his term, he'd hire a ghost writer to do a bestseller about Mitt the Great, follow Princess Sarah's lead by retiring and going on a book tour. Before you say, "Good," remember who that would put into office – Torquemada himself.

    Ryan wants chastise the Federal Reserve? Haave him get his boss to pay taxes like "American's" do. He is not some over priveledged little princess who can smile his fake B.S. smile and shovel his dribble about giving two shit's about the U.S. If he did he would not have sold out his people to jobs in China. This man is a con artist plain and simple.
