there is no need for romney & co. to attack, they just need to honestly show what obama has done to the country, and, explain how they're going to fix it...

THEY have a plan...obama has nothing but bullshit.

Mitt Romney, and Paul Ryan are already planning on leading the country in January. They are building their Administration. I bet there won't be one tax evader in Romney's Cabinet. And Paul Ryan knows what century we are in already.

BTW, If the Democrats let the tax cuts expire the new President can reinstate them in January 2013.

Finally, the adults in the room are back in charge. Let Obama whine about tax returns until election day, it just annoys the serious voter.

HALPERIN:'Media Very Susceptible to Doing What Obama Campaign Wants'... my my my, who would of thought.

It is really a shame that FOX is ganging up on CBS, ABC, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, Daily Kos and Media Matters other 38 outlets.

They are such brutes.

1. Obama LIED about Obamacare being a massive Tax Increase

2. Congress cannot REGULATE our lives via the Commerce Clause like Obama said

3. the 99% that Obama has lied about saying he is protecting, he just increased our taxes by the most EVER in US history …..

4. Because the Medicaid enforcement on the states was ruled Unconstitutional, Congress has to go back and re-write parts of this bill and then take another vote on the re-written portions…. how well do you think THAT Is going to turn out???

5. With the SCOTUS ruling that the Commerce Clause usage in this bill as Unconstituttional, rather it is a massive TAX INCREASE…… it now will ONLY take 51 Senators to overturn the law -v- the 60 it would have required if it were based on the Commerce Clause

In short, Justice Roberts did the GOP a huge favor come November…. now get your a$$’s out and vote Obama and the Democrats OUT OF OFFICE………..

Roberts put the resapomsibility for dealing with Obamacare tax where it belongs, on the electorate. Don't like it go vote the Democrats out of office November 6th.

"Americans paid the lowest tax rates in 30 years to the federal government in 2009, in part because of tax cuts President Obama sought to combat the Great Recession, congressional budget analysts said Tuesday.

During Obama’s first year in office, the average tax rate paid by all households fell to 17.4 percent, down from 19.9 percent in 2007, according to the CBO. The 2009 rate was significantly lower than the previous low of 19.4 percent in 2003 and well below the 30-year average of 21 percent."

Oh, they have a plan?
When asked about the plan, neither one can explain what it is.
When Ryan was asked about his plan, he mumbled something about not having yet run the numbers.

In short, neither one has a clue.

Obama had already extended those tax cuts before.

And yet the people who got that break used the money to outsource, to open foreign accounts and foreign investments, to pad their portfolio, to consume staples that did not enhanced their careers or to polish their skills or to strengthen their business (like buying their own stocks or acquiring competitors to impose their monopoly), etc.

The trickle down crap is trickling sidewides and in reality is reciclying back to the top! Explain the top getting richer! To them lowering cost, efficiency, and doing more with less workforce is INCOMPATIBLE WITH AN EXPLODING DEMOGRAPHICS AND CHANGING DEMOGRAPHICS (GETTING OLDER)!
.
The private sector can not rule or administer the economics of a rapidly changing demographics.
.
Voucher for the elderly is NONSENSE!!! The Elder has vision problems and suffer from alheizmer and they can even think that well to be handed the complications of insurances and tax laws associated with insurances for them to buy insurance!
.
Heck I still don't understand tax laws or insurance rules (fineprints). Social insurance and welfare CAN NOT BE HANDED TO THE PRIVATE SECTOR NOR TO THE PEOPLE THEMSELVES! OR CHAOS OR MEAN/EVIL/GREEDY/ABUSE PRACTICES FROM THE PRIVATE SECTOR WILL RUIN IT!!!!

Recent polls:

CNN----------Obama 52%....Romney 45%
Reuters------Obama 49%.....Romney 42%

And it's Obama by a length!

the private sector can adapt to a changing economy much more readily than the government. competition and the possibility of making a profit from improvements creates incentives that the government cannot provide. you people talk about the "greed" of the 1%. yet those "greedy" people provide jobs and move the economy forward. meanwhile the government wants you to accept the gruel they offer you...

In the end Obama will trade the Obama tax cuts, (Bush isn't there any more) for raising the debt level.
