I though it was interesting that Mitt Romney looked into the camera when he gave his closing remarks, while President Barrack Obama was looking everywhere but the camera. I never became quite sure what President Obama would actually DO if he was elected. He talked a whole bunch about what Mitt Romney would purportedly do, but not a whole lot about what HE would do it seemed.

Yeah, ironically with politics everyone at some point in time or another appears a little hypocritical (or at least their attacks have some ironic fingers pointing back at themselves). I really think the president wasn't prepared. Romney looked sharp.


Issues that the News covered today include the Mexican border killings, the rise of gas pump prices and the victory of Romney over the President last night. To me, all of the information that is telescoping to the Nov. 6 election should allow common sense voters to also tie in the news with the huge failures of Democrats state and federal elective offices. The federal policies of the Reid Senate, the WH and the Pelosi crew in the House seem to be hammering America's middle class. It is time for voters to cast out all of these Democrat liberals including the President or we risk losing our republic. It is that serious.

Mitt is doing everything but move into the Whitehouse!

We call that either hubris or naive arrogance.

You choose.

"We call that either hubris or naive arrogance."

During the first presidential debate the undecided voters got their first side by side comparison between Mitt Romney and a guy Al Gore said may have been deprived of oxygen due to the high elevation in Denver.

It is easy to understand why Obama lamented that he wasn't still campaigning against John McCain.

We still have many on the dole, and they'll vote for the hand that feeds them.

Don't count out the food stamp president.

Some of us are just really slow learners. All democracts are not parasites. I expect a lot
of southern democracts to change horses. It's like do it to me once, that's your fault, do it to me twice that's my fault. What I'd like to know what changes he intends to make that would result in a different outcome for the country. I for one have had enough of his socialism. The last socialist that ran for president, Norman Thomas, was actually a communist and after running for President 6 times, in 1947 said it was no longer necessary for him to run for president as the democrats under the name of "liberal" had adopted his platform. FDR's appointment of Warren essentially destroyed the Constitution, as written, and substituted legislation by interpretation
which in it's self should be unconstitutional

A couple questions need to be asked of Romney as far as his tax plan is concerned: Who do you define as the middle class? Will anyone endure a tax increase? How are you going to pay for your plan?

Someone needs him to explain that to the people!

It is numerous (in a sad and schadenfreude way) to hear an Obama supporter accuse Romney of hubris and naive arrogance as if that was not the binding substance of the entire Obama administration. LOL

humorous (not numerous) :)

Well, if counterfeit intelligence wrote it, it must be true!

Especially when it is validated by LOL!

Abusing entitlements come with a price. A loss of common sense.

With America's the loss of common sense, Barack Obama may regain the presidency.

Provo, UT

Yep, that is rational: believing that the entire population of a nation (or 47%) has lost their "common sense", and is otherwise morally and intellectually deficient, which is why they don't agree with you, and you don't get what you want...

Are you related to Mitt Romney, by chance?

@I M LDS 2

Thanks You for the vote of confidence
Because I have exactly the same amount of back up for my OPINION as you do

(BTW I am not LDS but am always humored and fascinated by those LDS members who desperately pretend to be worldly by painfully striving to rectify their religious beliefs with popular culture - but never take much time to actually question the validity of popular culture they are trying to conform to)

Obama is going to get desperate - bank on it! His campaign is already started. Desperate men do desperate things.

Provo, UT

Like I said... Counterfeit intelligence...

That sounds like Romney. His lies abounded in that bullying session he conducted in place of a debate (including bullying the moderator). He even tried to pretend he is a moderate instead of a minion of the far right extremes. Desperation indeed.

BTW -- as I have said before, I don't like either of the alternatives. My border collie is better qualified. I just recognize that Romney would be an unmitigated disaster for this country. No thanks.
