Did any of you listen to President Obama? He wants the best for America, he appealed to the better nature from all of us, the responsibility that we must all demonstrate together is the winning combination…….and just read these caustic comments already. This attitude is why The Republicans took it in the knee. This Tea Party fringe lunacy must stop. Too much is at stake.
America is hurting, drop the cynicism and let us all roll up our sleeves and get to work together.
"Fancy speeches mean precisely nothing when your actions have said otherwise." Until he can show by deed that he is willing to do more than dictate the terms of agreement, then really our politicians shouldn't listen to him. It's the same drivel we heard in 08 about unity, and I think we all know just how well that unification went.
f**k you again, my god I hate you koolaide drinkers
Are you stupid? You actually believe what Obama SAYS?!

Ladies and gentlemen, while I have enjoyed reading everyone’s contributions to this site during this election year. I can’t say I agreed with the most extreme posters, many of you were quite illuminating in my pursuit to see a different side of the political spectum. But I think we can all agree Romney was simply NOT the candidate and that hard core tea bag candidates and officials did more harm than good. 2016 isn’t so far off.
I think the right as too many celebrity icons making money off of people by blowing smoke up our butts. They will make money off this defeat. We will look like fools.
I don't care if a monkey is running against Obama, how could anyone vote for a person that has lied so many times? Is Romney the perfect candidate, no, but I hate a person that lies every time his mouth opens, especially the president.

Oops Sean Hannity may have broken the law by accident this morning. He tweeted his completed ballot:
New York state law, which says that anyone who “Shows his ballot after it is prepared for voting, to any person so as to reveal the contents, or solicits a voter to show the same,” could be charged with a misdemeanor.” Photographing a completed ballot is prohibited in many other states as well.
That's the least of anyone's concern. It certainly doesn't fall in the category of intimidation as in "vote my way or swim with the fishes" standing inside the booth.
Gee, let me guess....hmmmmm, that's a tough one. He voted for Romney?
I'm calling the New York state police.

Limited Impact Of New Black Panthers In Pa., Conservative Watchdog Says
Ben Brink, a former Navy Seal who is the leader of a group of conservative special operations veterans traveling swing states in search of signs of liberal voter intimidation, says that the much-touted reports of aggressive New Black Panthers in Pennsylvania has so far been limited to “one dejected, unarmed” man.
“Philly has lots or rumors that we are tracking down, but only one dejected, unarmed NBPP seen so far,” Brink told HuffPost by email.
Fox News led the morning with a video of a man wearing a New Black Panther uniform and holding the door open for elderly women as they arrived to vote outside a polling station in Philadelphia.
Brink said there are more reports of sighting in Cleveland that the group is looking into.
“We are tracking them,” Brink said. “Hoping for video soon.”

There is a you tube video just posted showing when punching President Obama at the voting booth it registers Mitt Romney. That seems a lot more efficient than sending a black linebacker for photo ops.
it is being dismissed as a calibration problem……………

Why not offer 5 Million for 8 years of Mitt’s tax returns? Seems kind of one sided there Mr. Trump.
If not for any reason to clear up if Romney took advantage in 2009 the amnesty for years of illegal shoring of funds/tax havens in Swiss Bank Accounts to avoid prosecution.
You are an ignorant fool. Mitt Romney did use offshore and Swiss accounts just as nearly every very wealthy person INCLUDING wealthy liberals use. Those offshore accounts are used because they are legal loopholes that are built in to the current horribly complex tax code. Those of us who are not super wealthy cannot afford the legal and accounting work that is used to fund these accounts. Mitt wants to simplify the tax code by lowering the tax rates for all of us and ELIMINATE these types of loopholes and deductions. Simplifying the tax code will be one of the best things that he could do to stimulate the economy and strengthen this country. Lower rate x less deductions = leveling the playing field. if you were super wealthy, you would use financial advisors that would have sent your money to offshore accounts also. That has been what everyone who makes millions a year does. Even liberal idiots like you don't want to pay any more taxes than you are required to by law. Until the code is simplified, there will be rich people using dubious deductions that we regular people can't use.
@AGGIE: I agree. What is Romney hiding? Even his father released tax returns. I love the reaction generated by your post. These people don't seem to understand.
@Chick: Romney hasn't said exactly what loopholes and deductions he would eliminate. He has suggested doing away with the capital-gains tax (which would lower his tax liability to approximately zero). The discussion of Romney's tax policy has him getting rid of the child deductions, the earned income tax credit, and the home mortgage interest deduction. ALL of which tend to favor the middle class and the poor. My guess is that whatever allows the rich to keep more of their money he will do.

Currently, there are six major departments and agencies that focus primarily on business and trade in the federal government. The six are: U.S. Department of Commerce’s core business and trade functions, the Small Business Administration, the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative, the Export-Import Bank, the Overseas Private Investment Corporation, and the U.S. Trade and Development Agency.
This is redundant and inefficient. Small businesses often face a maze of agencies when looking for even the most basic answers to the most basic questions. There is a whole host of websites, toll-free numbers and customer service centers that at times offer them differing advice. The result is a system that is not working for our small businesses.
The President is proposing to consolidate those six departments and agencies into one Department with one website, one phone number and one mission – helping American businesses succeed.
I have a question that I would like to present this community. Governor Romney could so easily slam the accusations of his time at Bain, the degrees of his tax havens, actually just about every accusation fielded by the media and the Obama campaign, just by following his father’s commendable and precedent setting example by releasing his tax returns, especially those during the years in question. He could completely control the conversation.
But he is refusing. It is becoming a yoke around his neck that he could easily cast aside. So why doesn’t he? Does this intelligent man not realize this will continue to haunt him from today forward? This was even an issue for his presumptive nomination by his peers? Just release them, already, I doubt he has anything to hide.
This is the type of person we need in the White House. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=474535465890703&set=a.341474035863514.91151.317916771552574&type=1&theater
I love the way a big deal is made of Romney's old/ older tax records when the Obama people have refused to issue standard school records for Obama. The secrecy and the hypocrisy is so transparent. And what ever happened about that Chicago house loan from Rezko and Obama's Chicago shady ties with Ayers, etc ? Maybe that is why the Democrats are distracting everyone with this tax foolishness.
All of you Birthers and Teabaggers have had three years to vet Obama and you have come up with nothing, just admit it, you are a bunch of racists responding to the dog whistle pandering..... You have short memories of the last Republican Administration and the damage that it did to this country.... You live in a delusion and are desperately scrambling to keep it that way..... Obama was right when he said that the only thing you have to cling to, in your desperation, is your religion and your guns..... That's why he has doubled down on the domestic surveillance and homeland security apparatus that George Bush started... I drink a toast to Obama, Bush and Clinton, they know where the real dangers to the Constitution are..... Our friend Romney is the same, he and Obama are two sides of the same establishment coin.... Wake up and you'll see....

Bush Jr. did not ever release his college grades either. Why is Obama’s an issue?
Bush's grades were released by the media. He was a B and C student.
yes he did. they showed he had a slightly higher average at Yale than John Kerry did.

C’mon people. You are on the wrong side of a small issue. Ms. Fluke never once referenced or talked about anything regarding recreational sex, or the like. More importantly she did not ask for tax payers to fund for contraception. Hence all the diatribe including what was perpetuated here was DEAD WRONG. Her issue was that birth control is also a valid hormonal corrective for a wide range of women’s health issues and its wrong to be summarily disallowed just because of Catholic ideology. I know its fun to call liberals names but in this case…….YOU ALL LOOK STUPID
$3000.00 for birth control. She could have said for medical reasons birth control offers a solution for certain problems, but didn't because that wasn't part of her agenda. But she has been a birth control advocate before Georgetown so her agenda is apparent. She just wants free birth control for women paid for by the government. Just another socialist leech.
Again with the moronic naivete. Do you REALLY think that Ms. Fluke and her classmate's contraceptive concerns have to do with...health care? Are you REALLY that braindead?

The despoiling of bodies during war is clearly an infringement as outlined both in the 1906 and 1947 statues of THE GENEVA CONVENTION.
The US Prides itself in having the best and most professional military. These 3 guys were wrong, they literally pissed on the professionalism and basic moral tenants of the Geneva Convention observed by the 99% of the men and women who serve this country honorably. With that, whatever standards are set in the court of Military Rules should be observed. For Perry to dismiss as youthful indiscretion as if a harmless prank, he should damn well know better that the US is peerless in time of war both in conduct on and off the battlefield. That is why we are BETTER than any and everyone else. This is why your cowboy is a failure (one of many)

Great links, however EVERYONE here will hold their noses and vote for him next November. The other five are NEVER going to make it………let’s get our heads wrapped around that sooner rather than later

Americans survived the concept of a Catholic in the White House (Panic! the President will be answering to The Pope), I don’t see the concept of magic underwear being a problem especially in an election where people are voting AGAINST someone rather that FOR someone.
However the first Jewish Presidential Candidate is going to catch hell.
America's future....a Muslim running for president? Curious what kind of a reaction but probably would not be a problem....just asking.....does religion matter for the president's seat? The present president says America is not a Christian nation....hummm.
You young people sure embrace alot....I am old and (God's Will & Timetable for me) the Exit-Sign is not SCARY, because I am a believer, but crap, America is sure getting to be a big puzzle for me. Still enjoying life and God's Grace for my life. God Bless America!!!
Exactly right, Aggie... I remember a rumor going around after JFK was elected that the federal government was deep into a project to collect 300 used bowling balls.
To make a rosary for the Statue of Liberty ! : )
