Every voter needs to read this excellent article... Very well worth your time...

I am with you Colter95 100%. Romney/Ryan 2012!!!!!!! Your comments are right on target.......good for you!!!!!

NO, THANK YOU!
I don’t want Romney’s version of change including:
• A severely conservative Supreme Court.
• Tax and jobs plan that doesn’t make mathematical sense as most experts say.
• 1% percent control of the nation,
• Leader who says “corporations are people”, and puts the needs of corporations
before the people.
• Higher taxes for middle class and lower taxes for the rich.
• Medicare taken bankrupt in 2016, as reports indicate,
• Overturn of Roe vs Wade and return women’s rights to the 1950s,
• Leader who condemns 47 percent of Americans.
• Leader with hot temper and controlling demeanor who is eager to start war against Iran.
I’m very pleased to stay with reliable, proven Obama-Biden who are taking America FORWARD - not back to the Bush years!

Residents of the two states that know Romney best -- Massachusetts where he was governor and now lives, and Michigan where he was born -- both strongly favor Obama, not Romney. They must know something that Romney supporters in Ohio don’t know!
7:10 pm on Sunday, November 4, 2012
I did not realize that the President of the United States could actually overturn Roe v Wade.....actually he can not....read the Constitution. Massachusetts and Michigan are traditionally democratic states...not a big surprise they favor Obama. If you believe that the federal government should have more influence on your life than it already has....be my guest vote for Obama. I believe that Romney offers the best opportunity to turn the economy around and improve life for everyone. Obama clearly wants more of us to become dependent on the government. I would be interested to know if as the democratic ticket keeps insisting that you are better off today than you were when they took office. I personally am not!

Wrong on the economy, wrong on Benghazi, and wrong on the auto bailout... The time for real change is NOW!!
11:15 am on Sunday, November 4, 2012
Romney? Are you kidding?? Where's your critical reasoning? Romney is a used idea salesman; a glad-handing, sweaty-palmed, transparent, self-serving huckster. A genuine corporate pawn who won't be pinned down to ANY real position on ANY important government issue. That is why he avoids reporters. No more "W!"

Romney can’t be trusted, as Republican leaders, media and experts agree!
Gen. Colin Powell, a Republican and Sec. of State under President George W. Bush:
“I’m not quite sure which governor Romney we would be getting with respect to foreign policy.”
Politifact: 42 percent of Romney’s comments in recent months have been false, much higher than Obama’s comments.
Salt Lake City Tribune, largest daily paper in Republican and Mormon-led Utah: “Romney (is) willing to say anything to get elected.”
Rick Santorum, former Republican Senator: “This is someone (Romney) who doesn’t have a core. He has been on both sides of almost every single issue in the past 10 years. “
FactCheck.org: “Romney distorts facts on Jeep, auto bailout.”
Brit Humes of Fox News: “Republicans do not trust Romney”

Romney's biggest problem: VIDEOTAPE.
12:27 pm on Sunday, November 4, 2012
Hey - who was in the room to VIDEOTAPE Romney......was it an Obama person.......so how is that being transparent? Yes, 47% of the country won't vote for Romney because they are used to being taken care of & I don't mean our elder's who are on Medicare/Social Security....which, in fact, your candidate took millions/billions out to do what........ObamaCare.....I am an elder and not fond of what has happened to our hard monies that went into SS & Medicare to help us when we retired...Thank You!

Joe and Jill Biden came to My Friends restaurant after the rally at Lakewood High this morning. He is so nice! He was eating with the patrons, taking photos with everybody, very very cool!
12:53 pm on Sunday, November 4, 2012
Did he say a bunch of idiotic crap like he always does? What a moron.
1:09 pm on Sunday, November 4, 2012
shirley romney does not care about the 47% of the voters who will not vote for him but he will welcome the 53% that will
1:16 pm on Sunday, November 4, 2012
Who the hell is shirley romney?
7:33 pm on Sunday, November 4, 2012
Barbara, every single politician that I have met except Ed Fitzgerald acts exactly the same way....that is how they get elected.
12:37 pm on Sunday, November 4, 2012
Shirley, you're not actually blaming the videographer for what your candidate clearly said with conviction, are you? Did that guy with the camera write the script for Mr. Romney?
4:55 pm on Sunday, November 4, 2012
Nope, not blaming the videographer at all, just was wondering who did the video?Thanks for your reply - quite enlightening.

After hearing the comments I am convinced that most commentators are taking them out of context. Romney was at a fund raising event. He is clearly saying that candidate Romney will not be able to convince the 47% of the American people that are either dependent on the government or die hard democrats to vote for him. His job as a candidate is to get the other 53% to support him. Of course most people have only based their opinions on what they heard on the news. Just my thoughts.
Obama up in Ohio and other swing states in early voting:
But I have to wonder what any Romney voters are thinking. Who knows Romney better than anybody? How about the state who actually voted him in before, as Governor. So let's take a moment to look at how the only state who has any working knowledge about how Romney governs, is voting...
The average of all polls, whether you believe some to be conservative or liberal leaning, still gives Obama a 20+ point lead. So my question is, why aren't more people paying attention to this? You can't shrug it off that it is MA and they always lean this way, because they voted Romney himself in as a Republican. The reality is that Romney can't even get close in this election in the only state that he has governed before, where the people actually know what you get if you vote for Romney. If he was the success that he pretends to be in MA, don't you think that he would be leading in MA or at the very least, have a close race going on there?

October Jobs report
with the unemployment rate ticking up to 7.9 percent but the economy adding a better-than-expected 171,000 jobs.
At the same time, the number of unemployed grew by 170,000, roughly the same amount -- to 12.3 million. .......................really +1,000 jobs gained thats 20 jobs per state or 1 new job for every 4 counties in ohio
7:23 pm on Sunday, November 4, 2012
Do not forget to count the roughly 11 million people who are unemployed and who have stopped looking for work. Under the federal governments ingenious system those are no longer counted as unemployed....not Obama's fault, just the way they figure it. The actual unemployment number is closer to 14%. There is also a large number of people that are underemployed including many recent college grads. The present course of economic improvement clearly is not working.....a change is in order.

wow talk about hope and change
7:21 pm on Sunday, November 4, 2012
Mr. Romney or Mr. Obama are both ant-freedom + anti-civil liberties candidates. Suggest you read, "Support for Kill List and NDAA make Obama and Romney Unfit for Office. American shouldn't be choosing to throw away their own civil liberties this election.

Third party candidates who will be on the ballot in most states deserve to be heard.

Wrong on the economy, wrong on Benghazi, and wrong on the auto bailout. The time for real change is NOW!! Cut, paste, read, and forward!!
8:39 pm on Sunday, November 4, 2012
I saw Obama yesterday claiming the new job numbers are proof that his policies are working and that we are in an economic recovery... Fact is, that is not the truth, or even close to the truth...
First, the unemployment rate ticked up to 7.9% and the year-to-date monthly average of 157,000 payroll jobs is barely enough to keep up with population growth -- much less make up for the 8 million jobs lost during the Great Recession.
Second, the so-called real unemployment rate (U6) remains elevated at 14.6%, albeit down from 14.7% the prior month. Similarly, the labor participation rate is at 63.8%, up from its multi-decade low but still incredibly weak.
Third, average hourly earnings fell a penny in October and average hours worked fell to 34.4 from 34.5 in September.
Stagnant wages means "we're not generating income," Reinhart says. "That's a problem in terms of the durability of an economic expansion, which is usually fueled by consumption. To get consumption you've got to generate income."
Also, just look at your checkbook. We are paying a lot more for everything now than we did in 2008. The price of gas has doubled. At the same time, wages have gone down, and that's if you're lucky to have a job.
In 2008, 25 banks went out of business. In 2012, 48 banks have gone out of business. Almost double the amount. Does that sound like recovery to you? Don't believe the Obama lies!!

Interesting read here. Tells of his politics and his attitude.
