Mitt will win by at least 5 points and will carry Ohio, Florida and possibly Pennsylvania and even may pick up New Mexico.

Glad he prays. We need more leaders who seek divine guidance and wisdom if only to help them in their stewardship and responsibilities.

Prayer can also be a time and often is, to meditate, reflect and become one with oneself.

He should be praying that no one watches that interview because we got to hear some of his healthcare plan...

"Well, we do provide care for people who don't have insurance," he said in an interview with Scott Pelley of CBS's "60 Minutes" that aired Sunday night. "If someone has a heart attack, they don't sit in their apartment and die. We pick them up in an ambulance, and take them to the hospital, and give them care. And different states have different ways of providing for that care."

Totally disconnected.

He also told 60 minutes that those making between $100,000 and $250,000 were the middle class - which I agree - but his economic plan intends to hit those very people with a tax increase. However, he says he will not raise taxes on the middle class. Well, which is it, Mitt?

I pray every night, too.

Our great presidents have always sought, through prayer, inspiration from a higher source. It shows humility and hope. Love his agenda or hate it, but, M. Romney is a good person and deserves respect. I also think B. Obama demonstrates that he is a good husband and father. I respect him as well while disagreeing with his understanding of economics, entrepreneurship and desire to have government solve everyone's problems.

Everyones' relationship with the almighty should have one thing in common. It's a personal, private thing.

Heaven help us if Mitt's prayers are answered, and he gets elected! He seems to hold sway with about half of the Republican Party, and none of the 47% left leaning moochers. Mitt has shown zero ability to stand up to the delusional far right. If Mitt gets elected the left will consider it pay back time for the GOP's treatment of Obama, and President Romney will spend all of his time trying to veto bills proposing that America get out of the U.N., and squashing amendments that we return to the gold standard.

I personally believe Mitt Romney is a great man with a magnificent vision of America and how to restore jobs and leadership to a failing nation. He is far more compassionate and connected than his detractors try to paint him. His anonymous acts of kindness and help to those in need are never mentioned because he never talks about himself in terms of his personal service to his fellowman. In truth, there is not a finer man or a more capable individual to become the president of the United States. The pettiness of people is disgusting as they knit-pick at any possible flaw. No one alive is better prepared and more committed to preserving the American Dream than Mitt Romney. Love him or hate him, he is still our best hope of restoring America to greatness. Obama's failed presidency is a disaster, yet there are those who can't see the forest for the trees. Obama's playing down the murder of four Americans is hardly a "bump in the road." That alone should be a giant red flag to Americans.

Ok, so Romney has daily conversations with an imaginary being. At some point, it would be great for him to have some productive conversations with real people too. The real people would like some more specifics about how he would specifically reform taxes, what his tax returns looked like during the past 10 years, and I personally would like to know if he truly thinks the senior citizens and military families who don't pay any income tax really think they are victims.

Amen and Go Mit Romney

To "one old man" lets get this straight. You want to be delivered from Romney and the Democrats. So that counts out major canidates for President.

Tells, who are you going to vote for President since you have expressed your disdain for Romney and all Democrats.

It's a wonderful thing to see so many praying people.

I too, pray. I've been praying, "Dear Father in Heaven, please send us another Presidential candidate."

When will we have the wisdom and courage to elect an agnostic or athesit? That's when we can really start to solve our country's problems.

Ah, Red, it's sad to see that you're still having problems with reading comprehension.

Didn't you know that all the Stripling Warriors were Democrats?

It's true.

They had the courage to stand up and fight for what was right back then. It's still true today.

Not to one up one old man or MoJules but...

I plead with who or whatever is in charge to deliver our country from Ivy Leaguers in DC & on Wall St.

If Obama makes it for another term we are going to be doing a lot more praying. This year is the first time the company I work for is losing money. At the same time the cost of living is skyrocketing. Not sustainable. It boggles my mind that anyone would vote for Obama. Like a dog eating it's own vomit.

Wisdom and courage, and faith, dictate that we elect someone who is both moral and God-fearing. The day we don't will signal the end of the U.S. and the foundation it was built on.

It's people like Mitt Robme you can thank for that Cow.... Not Obama.

I would simply like to refer all to a marvelous message today from Star Parker--"Time for Truth, Not Word Games"--very pertinent comments regarding the current presidential campaign. If you are not familiar with this very wise lady who has been on both sides of the government "nanny state", I suggest you become familiar with her story--it is very enlightening and inspiring for anyone interested in the basic principles that made America the greatest nation in the world--freedom, personal responsibility & accountability.

If you prefer that we move in the direction of Greece, Portugal, etc., then you likely will not be interested in her story.
