If you want substance, don't vote for Romney. He's a Ken doll who's flip-flopped on every major issue.

Flash: Women to get 18% raise in White House when Romney is sworn in. Since the Obama's pay women 18% less than men, Romney said he will end the Obama's war on women by restoring equal pay for equal work.

The federal government cuts federal funding to states who need to cut spending on teachers because they less general funding for EVERYTHING. State Republicans put caps on local taxes.

Teachers are not government workers.......they are for sure paid for by state governments, but it is not the federal governments job to pay them anymore than it is pay for any union clowns to keep their jobs over none union employees.

Yep, too bad Obama let all the illegals stay and mooch off the state governments, hospitals, welfare, WIC and pay no taxes for the teachers to keep their jobs. you get what you DON't pay for.

An ounce of image is worth a pound of performance! Trouble with Americans they can't consistently recognize performance, or maybe they don't want to ... scapegoating is easier and doesn't require thinking.

A campaign promise not kept might be worth an uneducated vote. The trouble is some voters remember the promises.

Obama has millions of fake Twitter followers

Aug 24, 2012

President Obama's Twitter account has 18.8 million followers -- but more than half of them really don't exist, according to reports.

A new Web tool has determined that 70% of Obama's crowd includes "fake followers," The New York Times reports in a story about how Twitter followers can be purchased.

"The practice has become so widespread that StatusPeople, a social media management company in London, released a Web tool last month called the Fake Follower Check that it says can ascertain how many fake followers you and your friends have," the Times reports.

"Fake accounts tend to follow a lot of people but have few followers," said Rob Waller, a founder of StatusPeople. "We then combine that with a few other metrics to confirm the account is fake."

Notes the Times:

If accurate, the number of fake followers out there is surprising. According to the StatusPeople tool, 71 percent of Lady Gaga's nearly 29 million followers are "fake" or "inactive." So are 70 percent of President Obama's nearly 19 million followers.
