  3. Romney is Hosed

    Nevada isn't filled with hicks who believe everything they hear on Fox News. They actually think! Romney is nothing more than a spoiled, rich boy used to getting his way and comfortable with people accepting his ridiculous comments without comment. This is the big leagues and the fact-checkers show him to be wrong in every arena. His distain for the working class people has emerged in living-color. He thinks 47% of Americans are parasites and not worth his attention. Romney gives us no specifics except that he supports the lyin' Ryan budget – to kill Medicare. Enough said.

    No surprise here. It's simply the result of a morally corrupt candidate running a morally corrupt (and incompetent) campaign.

    I really hope the Romney's are completely humilitated in November.

    Moments ago, I heard comments Ann Romney made in Iowa to (Peggy Noonan, I think). She actually told her to STOP IT during the time Ms. Noonan was questioning her. It was unprofessional, classless and demeaning and her tone was beyond nasty. She futher stated "we are lucky to have "Mitt" want to represent us. Are you kidding me? This was beyond arrogant and totally ignorant on her part. No one ASKED him to represent us and most don't want ANY part of his policies or him. For years, Willard has planned and plotted to sit in the Oval Office, and now that things are slipping out from under their greedy noses they want to BLAME the American people for not wanting them? These people are contemptible, nasty and unimpressive to say the least and I hope God brings BOTH of them to THEIR KNEES and teaches them a lesson in humility.

    Oh yes this video tape is so important, more than a DEAD AMBASSADOR plus 3 others, numerous protesting against the USA, the economy stinks, unemployment is high, the president has thrown in the towel and if he is relected it is up to us to do his job from the outside because he can't do it from the inside to change Washington, I heard Obama wants to change the flag of the USA to his own flag design and I heard there are ads in the middle east of Obama and Hillary apologizing for the USA, we might lose our freedom of speech to please other countries, etc.....

    Oh yes, let us waste time on a video that is not even complete, taken in secrecy, can't even validate it.

    I am shocked that we are in so much trouble and this is what we get as news. This video comes before our DEAD AMBASSADOR who was not protected and he already knew he was on a hit list and it was PRE-PLANNED according to the news I just saw and our government didn't rescue him. What is going on in Washington?????????

    Republicans are moving campaign staff out of New Mexico and other states because they’re all 47%, they’re not needed by GOP

    Mittens is failing because he started his campaign with a boldface LIE
    And then his opponents destroyed him in the primary by not letting anything slip by
    So in an effort to make it all erase, Mittens is desperately trying to Etch-A-Sketch it away
    But the far-Right was not having it and the Democrats said, "uh, uh – NOT TODAY!!

    Obama/Biden 2012 – The Only Trusted Way Forward!

    "There is no trouble for Mitt Romney! He's just a Guy who made it, and wants to pass it on before it's too late. Not that much different from me and many others around the same age. It happened in East-Germany and Poland after the collaspe of the USSR.No I don't have Romny's Millions, but I did live in England, saw the fall of the unions, not much unlike the Unions Obama is trying to use for his own greed. Unions can only work with Industry and not against!""

    It is not surprising that Romney is falling farther and farther back as the election nears. What is surprising is that Romney himself is the cause of his decline. Telling his big money backers that he is basically not careing about 47% of the people because they don't make enough money is just plain stupid. And thinking that no one at the fundraiser would film it or put the film out in the public is idiocy, pure idocy.

    People are starting to realize Romney is not who you one wants as President .

    Back room deals are for corporations. Lack of transparency and lack of honesty.

    IF YOU ARE A LOWER RANKING, enlisted man in the armed forces, Mitt Romney was talking about YOU as part of the lazy,mouching 47%.

    If you are a retire senior, one that worked your whole life and is now getting a government check or benefits [Social Security & Medicare] Mitt Romney was maligning YOU when he disparaged the 47%.

    If you are a young family of 4 in Colorado, Michigan, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio, or Missouri, Romney was talking ABOUT YOU when he said you have a, and I quote, "a victim" mentality.

    The hard truth is that anyone who doesn`t have enough SELF RESPECT to vote against Romney and FOR Obama is a FOOL.

    Troubling trend? For me it is only the beginning as his 47 % comments sink in as to who is in that and his clear and extreme weakness on Foreign policy.
    He has one hope that he can make people believe he can turn the economy of the USA around so fast in a global recession as to create 12M jobs by doing just what Bush did =unfunded tax reductions. (That did not work even in better economic times In US and globally) Please note China and India are slowing GDP wise the EU is mess. ( QED increasing exports difficult.)
    It might be great if his tax plans gave a lot to the poorer rather than most to the rich again ( trickle down) therefore fuelling domestic demand = 65 % + of US GDP, but regrettably they don't most goes to corporates and very wealthy already individuals.
    If it were not so sad I could LOL.

    Mitt's lies are a problem for Mitt.

    No one trusts him after all the lies he's already told.

    As Chris Christie pointed out earlier, Romney can't win. Maybe the donors are starting to catch on.
