Pueblo is a splendid example of how companies like Romney's wrecked our nation.

And now he wants the presidency.

One word:

No.

The real tragedy is that half of American voters will "pull the lever" for Obama in November. These people will come from four groups: 1) those who still believe that he is the greatest thing since sliced bread, 2) those who know that he's not competent but will vote for him for political correctness reasons, 3) those who think that he might be a slow learner and "deserves another chance", and 4) those who know exactly what he is and want the destruction of America.
Sadly, the last group may be the largest.

i don't see what you say as a tragedy but since you wanna go that route, those "real' American voters will pull for Willard
1) against THEIR OWN BEST INTERSTS because they make up the majority of the safety net he will destory. and/or
2) they are 1+%. and/or
3) they think there will be more American jobs delivered by the outsourcer in chief.

I presume Willard has TOLD (detailed) you something that will cause you to vote FOR him?
not just AGAINST POTUS O?
I'm for Obama because:
1) he said he would stop major combat operations in Iraq (we should have never ben there), DONE.
2) he said if he could get America's #1 enemy (OBL), he would. DONE
3) he got the ACA to be the LAW OF THE LAND. DONE
4) he got equal pay law. DONE
5) he got job growth on the PLUS SIDE again. DONE
6) he saved to AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY and american manufacturing in that are. DONE
7) he and Bush collaborated to save the financial system which was circling the drain. DONE
chime in anyone....

Jobs will continue to go to cheap labor countries......we will only get low paying jobs here since people elsewhere will work for far less. It isn't rocket science and these corporations will continue to exploit the poor in these countries because even at the low pay it provides a better standard of living for them than they had. Meanwhile we here had better get prepared for a much lower standard of living. It's happening and isn't going to change. This is our future.
The economic crisis is global and no matter who is in the WH it isn't going to change for a long, long time. Romney is not going to change anything for anyone except however he can benefit the wealthy because they want to 'get all they can while they can'. Hasn't he made that clear with how he handles his own finances? Does anyone with a thinking brain believe he will fix it for anyone but his many wealthy friends and those 'corporate people' he talks about? As Ann Romney said, 'you people'. It's a derisive way of putting us in our place. We people, the 'common' people, do not matter a rats a** to people like them.
04:24 PM on 07/21/2012
Sadly I have to agree, the world is changing dramatically and Americans--all of us--have to adapt to the changes.

Lincoln said "I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crisis. The great point is to bring them the real facts."

Great line, and admirable sentiment.....only problem is ARE the American people getting the real facts?

Not from what I can see.

When what basically amounts to the propaganda arm of one of the two Major political parties, can sell itself to the American people as "Fair and Balanced News"? We got problems.

Study what happened in the 30's in Germany, and compare it to what is happening in the U.S. today.

For the people of the U.S. to make intelligent decisions, we need to know the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.

Where are we going to get it?

Cause it sure as heck isn't coming from the mouths of politicians, nor from the pundits who spoon feed us biased news.

Romney has 100 million in an IRA.

30 thousand is the maximum contribution per year. After 15 years at Bain, that would be 450,000.

Romney is hiding massive fraud. No wonder he's afraid of what you'll discover in his taxes.

This is complicated for you, G. But the facts I laid out for you very clearly are a pretty direct explanation of how your candidate is up to his eyes in financial fraud.
Since he's running as an alternative to what's already there, you would think your party would have chosen someone who has spent his career working to close to the edge of breaking tax laws to get himself rich. Meanwhile, his business was in closing factories and looting pensions.
All in all, he's a bad dude. Can't see why he's running. Why him? Doesn't make sense.

But they will be down in the dirt with all the rest of us. Voting Republican wont make them special. Dont expect Gratitude friom the 1% you wont get it .

"This also is the third straight month of increases; the latest rise is attributed to more people resuming job searches."

This underscores the problem with Obama touting unemployment "dropping" to 8.2%. It didn't drop because more people were employed. It dropped because more unemployed people just gave up and were no longer counted.

If everyone becomes disheartened and quits trying, are you going to parade that around as a sign of success? If you do, be careful.

Job losses and a wrecked economy under Bush.

Job gains, a recovering economy under Obama.

Romney is Bush III.

I'm voting for Obama
04:22 PM on 07/21/2012
Ok let's bash Bush. If I recall the recession that started in 2007 was result of the house bubble blowing apart. Greedy banksters and mortgage brokers wanted more and more profits from rolling mortgages over several time aided in the housing boom.  

Next comes the consumers. They brought into the sells plan hook line and sinker. NO DOC NEEDS, NO INCOME NEEDED, NO CREDIT NEEDED, NO DOWN PAYMENT NEED. Only problem REPAYMENT WAS REQUIRED. 

Next politics:  do gooders thought it would be great idea to force bankers to loan poor people money so they could the American Dream. So we got the COMMUNITY REINVESTMENT ACT. 

Well soon all those houses will sink to what their real value is, then maybe the housing will improve.

Just wait until the Socialist Party chiefs take over industry and your local businesses. I am sure that unelected Community Organizers chosen without Congress like so many Czars of the President to take over business will make all you Liberals cry with approval - that is until you come to your senses too late.
05:07 PM on 07/21/2012
Don't kid yourself. Romney is closer to socialism than you might know. His church operates like a microcosm of socialism within their own ranks in both social and business arenas. They even tried a form of communism in the late 1800's called the "United Order." How do you think they survived? By operating very exclusively, secretively and among their own.

And his party continues to assist in a downhill slide for our country.

A second-term for President Obama is needed and very necessary. He has seen who his adversaries are and he will not put his faith in "compromise" any longer. He knows now, that word is nowhere to be found in the GOP dictionary.

Verily, Mormons expect the United States to eventually become a theocracy dominated by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Romney was a bishop before running for office. He donates to his own non profit trust that manages huge contributions to his church for political issues like fighting gay marriage initiatives. He will out law porn and force social laws that dictate his morality onto America.

"If I were going to say anything to the American people, it's be patient," says the 40-year-old firefighter and union activist. "People thought the president could wave a magic wand and the economy would be all better. But we have to deal with reality and ... it's going to take time to get us out of this hole."

Then it should be hammered home as to how bad the regressive obstructionist republicans were involved into keeping us deep down in this hole they put us in not just these last 3 1/2 yrs, but well before that.

Obstruction? When you Demos have led America down the "primrose path" to a desperate situation with the economy in the tank and You Libs keep piling on taxes and legislation to favor "friends" with stimulus money. And then to add insult to injury, our fair President calls the entire business and taxpayer community as a bunch of "greedy" people. The hammer will come down when America's enemies take America over when we default on the 20 Trillion dollars of debt interest payments that are building China's Navy and Russia's Army, along with new space programs financed and subcontracted by the US defunct canned space program. A really proud moment for America.
