<quoted text>Obama's goal is to lead America out of the worst economic decline since 1929. Dumbass Repub. Vote for Mitt, he wants to lower taxes even more on the rich and repel regulations on Wall St. and the banks. Mitt's all for the Paul Ryan "marvelous" plan that does away with Medicare. Might as well have nominated Ron Paul. How'd that work out for America under Bush? Dumbass Repubs.
Bush gone....like your sanity!

So you're saying the borrowing from China began with President Obama?
If Romney wins there I'll be no borrowing from China?
Did you say that Bush didn't treat China like a "pimp and sugar daddy"? Or are those terms of endearment solely for President Obama and why?
No, I'm not saying that.(Glad you came out to play, by the way).

But the Republicans finally get we don't want to be like prositutes anymore to a foreign country and are willing to do whatever it takes to get off the streets.

Obama just keeps putting on more makeup and wearing shorter skirts.

Top GOP Pollster to GOP: Reverse On Gay Issues
Below is a remarkable document. It's a memo circulated by Jan van Lohuizen, a highly respected Republican pollster,(he polled for George W. Bush in 2004), to various leading Republican operatives, candidates and insiders. It's on the fast-shifting poll data on marriage equality and gay rights in general, and how that should affect Republican policy and language. And the pollster's conclusion is clear: if the GOP keeps up its current rhetoric and positions on gays and lesbians, it is in danger of marginalizing itself to irrelevance or worse.

OMG!
It's 2012 folks. Get real. You have no choice.
No kidding! If Mitt Romnry had any balls he would have gone on national tv and agreed with the Presdent, be a hero and set the tone for ending homophobia in this country.
Instead he has shown that he is still a homophobic bullier

Hey, the POTUS just came out for gay marriage. And it seems the right wing quasi-religious folks are out in the cold. Now how in the hell did that happen?

At a George Clooney fundraiser on Wednesday, Obama said he believes gay and lesbian couples should be able to wed, a shift in position that excited his political base around the country and spurred donations to his campaign - to applause from a crowd of 150 people who paid $40,000 a ticket to see the president at the Oscar-winning actor's home.
At a Seattle fundraiser on Thursday (the next day) after sending shock waves through the political world by announcing his support for same-sex marriage, President Obama made few references to his shift on the issue during two fundraisers here Thursday.
Gotta please the crowds - depending on the crowd.
Hardly a shock wave, just a political tactic.

It's not about Homers stubbornness, he is not stubborn, you are. Democrats will not vote for Romney, and independents consider many other things when voting. It's not only the economy.
Romney cannot relate to people. The next president will likely appoint two SC justices, for this reason alone President Obama will be re elected.
Citizens United case was the worst decision by this fascist court and has to be undone.
Romney does relate to people. Obama relates to you, and the other morons who are in denial and still worshipping his hope & change nonsense and his almost 4 years of failure: spend-crazy behavior, class warfare and campaigning, leaving the nation divided, devastated and bankrupt. He will probably go down in history as the biggest presidential failure since your other false idol, Jimmy Carter. Have another swig and keep dreaming.

It's the economy, stupid, and Obama has f*cked-up in a big way.

Citizens United will allow the Republicans to compete on an even basis with Demokrat union money.

If Romney isn't "relating" to people, how come conservatives are rallying behind him 100% and he's up by 10 points over Obama amongst independents?

This isn't a popularity contest. Obama and you liberals really get that mixed up.

"It's about the economy...and we're not stupid."

Opposing homosexual marriage has nothing to do with homophobia.

Marriage between homosexuals serves no purpose in society.

Homophobia is only in the minds of liberals.

Why have the majority in the black community - and even Obama himself (up until the 11th hour)- been against gay marriage?

Are you saying they are homophobic too?

Your views are colored by your dislike of President Obama.

You are stuck with Romney. If he moves to the right he will alienate more voters?

As for the number of federal employees, in the most recent available data from the Office of Personnel Management, 2.1 million executive branch employees as of December, an increase of nearly 3.7 percent over December of 2009, and an increase of about 13 percent over September of 2007 before the recession began.
"We’re under a wage freeze on federal employees… that is hampering the recovery and hampering the robust creation of jobs,” said Roger Hickey, co-director of the progressive group Campaign for America's Future.

But Obama can't hire enough federal employees - it's his create jobs plan - at our expense.
