I have worked since I am fourteen years old, came from the low income projects and put myself through college and law school; I paid taxes for forty years and continue to pay taxes. My son (16) is severely disabled and I rely not on my incrediblty expensive private health insurance (who refuses to provide any nursing asistance), but rely on the state loophole FOR MEDICAL COVERAGE ONLY to pay for nursing care so I CAN WORK, I am certainly not one of the 47%, really do not like either candiate, but now I have now choice but to vote for Obama since Romney scares me more than Obama. Romney continues to talk about his vision and getting people back to work (which I agree) but offers no clear plan on how he will put this policy into effect, other than to cut the aid which allows me to work and support my family.
This truth had to be said. Awesome job Mitt and thank you Jimmy Carter IV and crew for bringing it to light via of all rag piles Mother Jones! People who have been taught that hard work is part of our country knows exactly what Romney was saying. The "you owes me" gang have no clue or cares about anything except carrying on the "value" of being entitled. They could care less about Obama! The only reason why they love Obama so is that he gives them a "piece of the pie." Remember Obama saying....The US was a pie...we all are entitled to some pie....give me a piece of the pie." Romney --------> values, ethics, hard work, trust. Obama----> give me, owes me, freebies. When the money is gone, those freebies will be the first thing down the toilets...if there are any toilets left!
Right on Romney!!!
And over at Stacy McCain's site, he's pointed out that Bill Kristol just called Romney "arrogant and stupid." Also David Frum (idiot) and David Brooks (Full-bore RINO, also idiot).
This is the top lead story on the NBC Nightly News tonight, painting this as a huge gaffe that Romney might not be able to recover from which is going to derail his campaign, which even the "right" is criticizing -- JOE SCARBOROUGH AND BILL KRISTOL. Give me a freaking break. Then the 2nd story is about Romney, then the third story is Pres. Obama's reaction to Romney's statement. Where's the story about Obama lying to us about Libya???
I'm livid, and I know this is par for the course, but c'mon! Breitbart was right when he said the liberal media is the greatest threat to this country. They are treasonous as far as I'm concerned.
I'm sure they need the assistance, Rob. It's not that they are purposely staying on the government dole. That's what the leftards and Dems don't understand. They see everybody as a victim who needs large, expanding government to be their nannies. They lie about Romney in that they are distorting his words to fit their narrative that all Republicans are heartless, calloused ba$t@rds who don't care about the "underprivileged". They are using this to score more political points and distract everybody from Prez O's disastrous handling of the problems in the Middle East.
Don't worry. Prez O is making sure that the country is wrecked and that our standard of living closely resembles that of a banana republic. If El Presidente is re-elected, we will need those guns to protect ourselves on our own soil against his leftist, revolutionary, and jihadist buddies.
It's coming across my stupid yahoo account login page that the family of Jew Hatin' Jimmy (Carter) is responsible for the leaked vid of Romney at the fundraiser.
What a genius! How many of those businesses are actually run by Democrats, have had, or do have Democrats in executive or management positions? How many of them have contributed and continue to contribute to the Obama campaign? Oh no! More facts are in the way! What is the poor leftard to do?
Anybody but Obama!!! Nothing more needs to be said. As Mark Levin says an orange juice can would be better. Wake up freedom loving Americans. I believe in smaller government, level tax rates with no loopholes and The original intent of the constitution and rule of law equally applied. None of this can be said as policies of the current administration. Communist did not take over the democratic party in one election cycle. We have to take it a step at a time. Just get o out this go round and we keep working on bringing the R party back to the party of small national government.
New Romney videos just released: http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2012/09/romney-secret-video-israeli-palestinian-middle-east-peace
I wonder how many people here would actually prefer Obama to Romney if he were white and his name was something 'usual' like 'James Parker' or something.
I wonder how many people would prefer Romney if he were brown and his name was something 'Latino' like Hector Ramirez or Che Guevara.
I am really glad TRS let you stay here. I begged for it. I need to know what the dip$hits think cause I don't know many. Like B.A. Baracus on the A-Team said, " I pity the fool."
Wonder no longer dude. Your brother Carter is white and he has the name Jimmy Carter and we wouldn't and didn't vote for him.
My bad; I accidently clicked the "like button" on this comment posted by a leftist cheerleader of Obama.
Vote Romney! Why? Because...
- He loves firing people;
- He thinks its fine and dandy to strap the family dog to the roof of a car for 12 hours;
- He thinks people who get medicare, social security, food stamps and students loans should be thrown in the gutter while shifting the money to his billionaire friends and to military contractors;
- He thinks singing 'who let the dogs out' will attract African-American voters;
- He has no compunction to run over Ron Paul supporters;
- He loves to lie and distort the truth;
- He wants a war with Iran and Russia.
What wonderful qualities to be President!
Vote Obama! Why? Because...
- He causes entire businesses to go under;
- He ate the dog;
- He thinks there should be more people who get medicare, social security, food stamps and students loans while shifting the money to his billionaire friends and to militant Muslims;
- He thinks playing golf will attract more white voters;
- He has no idea what compunction is unless it is spelled out on the teleprompter;
- He lies and distorts the truth and is caught doing so regularly;
- He thinks Iran and Russia are superior to the United States.
What wonderful qualities to be an idiot!
Wow, the rancor in the comments section is palpable on this site. Do you guys really think that someone would put in all the trouble of running for president, spending four years in the job, and then running for re-election because he hates America. If you look at the GW Bush years you see ample evidence that in 8 years a President can indeed nearly ruin America. If you take on faith that this wasn't GW's aim then lets say with diligent effort a President could absolutely drive this country into the ground. So either:
A. Barak Obama does not have the goal of "destroying America" nor does he "hate America"
B. He is spectacularly incompetent when it comes to destroying our country given that he's helped millions of uninsured American's get healthcare (mostly on the private market, as well as ending pre-exsiting conditions etc), He helped arrest the greatest financial crisis since the great depression, and he gave the order that saw Osama Bin Laden dead, in spite of Republicans in Congress who have mostly acted like spoiled children throwing a temper tantrum upstairs because Momma and Dadda voter sent them to their room without dinner.
Get a grip folks. If you can't figure out that we are all in this together, including Barak Obama, then you are the PROBLEM not the solution.
People who'll vote for Romney can be categorized this way:
- super rich who don't want to pay taxes;
- people who've been conned into thinking Romney will be for them (isn't it obvious he says one thing to you guys but smirkingly thinks different);
- people who just hate Pres. Obama;
- corporations who don't want to be regulated so they can pollute, bribe, and con their customers;
Am I leaving anyone out?
I am vote R/R. Certainly non of your crap ideas itemized. I am not a Mitt fan, still vote for him, compare mitt to Obama, what planet are you from. What have Obama specifically done for you ? What is Obama in your dream will do for you after all his lies even from the beginning ? Try again
I'm voting for Romney and I'm not super rich. In fact, I'm disable and rely upon Medicare. I want Mitt/Paul to tackle this entitlement program so my children can depend upon it.
The only people conned are like you zbig666 who continue to support the weakest and most incompetent president since Carter. In fact, I look back at the Carter years as the good old days.
I like President Obama, his wife and children. They are a great First Family. I disagree strongly with his foreign and domestic policies. Leftist like you call that HATE because your to ignorant to debate these policies.
I guess you don't work. Why else would you attack corporations; large or small? When I read corporations don't want regulations so they can pollute, bribe, and con their customers, I know I dealing with someone who's feeble minded at best.
BTW, you did leave something out. Your either an OWS member or aspire to become one.

That's all I have time for.
People who understand that another four years of Obama will destroy this country. Other than that.....
Obama must be a slow worker, considering he failed to 'destroy' the country in his first four years. What about Bush -- he turned a Clinton surplus, a thriving economy, lots of jobs, peace in the world into a recession, two wars, mass unemployment, exposing government agents, the destruction of two buildings in New York, not to mention a bunch of planes and the Pentagon...ah the list goes on. And you want to return to that kind of management? oh yes, incompetent handling of a natural disaster in New Orleans.
This is the epitome of the word "asinine".
Why is this such a revelation to the idiots in the media who are the ones who spend their time constantly reminding us of poll numbers?
If I'm going to sleight Obamney, it isn't going to be over something as stupid as this.
This is the most frustrating thing that all Republicans do, bow down to the mighty media thinking that they will be eventually liked by them. I scratch my head as to why they do not take a lesson from Reagan and run with it. One needs to speak beyond the media and use them instead of vice-versa. It has to be that inside the beltway mentality, not realizing that there are better means out there.
Here are four quotes from Thomas Jefferson that best summarizes what Mitt Romney try to convey to the lame stream media.
" I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them."
" A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned - this is the sum of good government."
" I own that I am not a friend to a very energetic government. It is always oppressive."
" The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not."
Nice quote, unfortunately, it doesn't apply to reality. There is a myth of the deadbeat nation. 61% of those 47% who don't pay Federal Tax actually pay payroll tax! They pay sales tax and other taxes. The majority of those who depend on government entitlements are Republicans: white, elderly, who survive on social security, medicare/medicaid in nursing homes. If Romney has his way, the people who voted for him will be thrown out of the nursing homes 'cuz Romney wants to severely cut Medicaid which is the majority payer for the elderly in nursing homes!
..Majority of those who depend on gov. entitlements are republican...."
NY, CA, MA, MI, these are most broke bankrupt states in the union, they are Bluest of Blue . Now tell Obama to put back 716 billion dollars he stole from Madicare to use on Obamacare
To those who say this has ended his campaign, I say just wait to see!
This may be the thing that propels his landslide.
Everything he said was true.
A perfect analogy for me is when Obama said some of us were clinging to our guns and bibles. Some then speculated that could have taken away the sliver of indies that were thinking of voting for him.
Didn't even impact him at all. NOT. ONE. BIT. ( I wish it would have)
