    I vote for Obama as best comedian and Romney as best President. We don't need a comedian right now, but rather someone that can lead this country and not divide it by class and race.
    Obama is the one with the bad memory anyway...he has forgotten what he promised us four years ago.
    You don't have to like Romney, you just need to save this country before it is too late and vote for him.

    You ain't gonna hurt the rich, hurt yourself and vote Obama, just why would the takers look to expand their business in a socialist business climate?

    The lib cant even think clearly, all hate and lies, gimme gimme gimme. If the average Democrat would take half the energy they use in wish death and harm on conservatives and spreading lies about Romney and used that energy towards starting a business or updating their skills, they would be one of those evil rich people in no time.

    Think about it, if the givers and those who obey the law were only allowed to vote, Republicans would get 90% of the vote. The worst of America is supporting Obama, look in the mirror, are you one of 'dem?

    Obama has really shown the voters just how simple and silly he really is... Also I'm sick of the uneducated people he's got following him trying to do an interview, but know nothing about whats going on in the world or what Obama is doing other than welfare, medicad, abortion, and birth control pills...

    Anybody but Bush , Vote Obama !

    Romney = GW Bush
    Rep. Adam Smith is smart to point out that of “Romney’s 24 special advisors on foreign policy, 17 served in the Bush-Cheney administration.”
    Any foreign policy advisory board that seeks the counsel of Cofer Black, Michael Hayden, Dan Senor or John Lehman, to name just a select few, is a real cause for concern. Of that crowd, Black is the most worrying.

    Dose Tagg Romney still want to punch the President ?

    Romney is too prissy. The world leaders would walk all over him, or take him out in a fist fight when he gets belligerant with them. They won't put up with the Bossiness and condescending remarks.

    More educated people vote for Obama. ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

    Romney has some ideas that just insult people.
    Obama might have promised us plenty of things four years ago, but no one really realizes just how difficult and stressful it is to be in the White House. Obama had to go in and take care of and wrap everything Bush did. When the Democrats were in office, we did great things and the states improved. We need to give him time to actually have his own term where he ISN'T cleaning up after the recent president. And have an open mind. Jesus.

    All Obama has done in his 4 years is raise the debt ~5 T. While Bush jr add about the same in twice the time. And why does it matter if the rich are being taxed more? It doesn't! They need more taxes so the middle, WORKING class doesn't need to pay as much so people can kick start the economy back to the way it was.

    Danita you are the one uneducated. Mittens is inconsistant with his views and his economic plans are good enough to save the economy. Conservatives seem to be senile. Get it through your head. Unless you are a rich person R-Money won't help you.
