    The BIG problem with the twit's campaign is that while the President is out to help the country the twit is campaining with preibus and the third bush.

    I don't think Obama will win, but if he does America loses big time! Obama can't turn this mess around in four more TERMS, let alone 4 years.

    In the last four years Obama has nearly bankrupted and destroyed America ... and, in the last couple of days, because he visited the Hurricane zone ... and, milked the tragedy for every photo op possible ... obama stooges think he deserves another undeserved Nobel Prize.

    President Obama is truly a great leader.From day one he has worked his butt off for us. He deserves 4 more years for any one of the following achievements; killing Osama bin Laden,saving GM and Chrysler, and enacting the Affordable Healthcare Act.

    What's your point? Polls can be easily fixed to promote the opinion of the person making the polls. Nobama 2012!

    It sure would be funny if Romney won and got rid of FEMA – and told all those victims to borrow money from their parents

  12. Rob-Me & Lyin' Ryan Lie a LOT!

    Republicans will look bask on this election and wonder how they ever got a weak candidate like Romney as their representative. You can't run as a "severely conservative" candidate in the Primary – then flip-flop into a moderate in the General Election! You can't constantly lie and expect people to ignore the fact checkers. You can't offer an economic "vision" but offer absolutely no specifics when the math fails to work. You can't look liker a fool on foreign policy and military affairs. You can't invent Obamacare then campaign against it! You can't identify 47% of our people as losers!

    I'm glad that I'm on the other side of the curve – Romney AND Obama indicated that if you're over 55 , you don't have to worry about Not receiving s.s. or medicare – It's the ppl that is below 55 that has to worry about NOT getting it

    Anyway – to be perfectly honest, I don't think either candidate likes their positions in the polls – because Polls don't mean a thing in Presidential Elections. Up 1 or 2 pts in one poll – then down 1 or 2 pts in the next poll. That doesn't tell anything. The Poll that matters is coming, on Nov.6th.

    May the Best Man Win – 2012

    Republican tricks didn't work! They tried to pretend the Bush Administration didn't exist – but people know who caused the recession. They tried to get away with obstructing all progress but folks saw the 138 filibusters in the Senate by Republicans. They tried to pretend Obamacare was different from Romneycare but citizens can read – they know it's the same program but Romney avoids telling us how he'd pay for it. They tried to make Romney a conservative in the primary but a moderate in the general election – but Americans know a dozen flip-flops when they see them. They tried to make Romney and Lyin' Ryan look honest – but fact checkers proved them pathological liars time and time again. They under-rated the intelligence of the American people – and lost.

    Romney is weeping like a "B" America has found out what a piece of crap Romney really is.
    He's a piece of garbage and does not represent America. Our America is seen in President Obama, Gov Christie, and Colin Powell Our America all the way.

    The media is so biased it makes me sick!! Headlines, "both campaigns say they like their positions in polls" and the article reads majority of Americans believe Obama will win. The media have become criminal and will no longer receive recognition for creditworthiness in this country. SAD!!!
