"The one who was prepared when he showed up for the presidential debate with the one that wasn't.

The one who brought a cheat sheet, when notes were clearly NOT to be used according to the rules?
Romney showed he is used to ignoring rules because they don't apply to "him."

Sorry SS Integrity does not mean chameleon like in ideals.

Obama's presidency and 2012 campaign will be talked about for years to come when people talk about what not to do. He got elected with the least credentials of any modern President. He was swept into office in the midst of an economic crisis with a very non-specific campaign theme of 'hope and change.' He road a wave of young voters looking to make history. His lack of economic experience has shaped his policies for four years and led to the weakest recovery ever. The whole time nobody dared question him on his philosophy or ask him to add up the numbers. Then comes a debate with a man who does have some experience in the economy. It was the perfect recipe for disaster for Obama. The ONLY comeback the left has is that Romney is a liar and a cheater. (That's not what the American people saw, by the way.) If you think the debate was bad, wait until election night. I still think the polls are questionable.

If/When Willmitt wins, I am going to expect only a few things. Mostly, that he fix everything obama has apparently wrecked in three and a half years. All of it. Because apparently he can, according to what I've read on these pages. So, cheaper gas, immigration, debt, deficit, tax breaks, I just want it all Because you can, mitt. I heard it here. Your alternative, of course, is abject failure.

All during the last 4 years Obama's cheerleaders have been using Bush as an excuse for Obama's failures. When Obama got his backsides kicked during the first presidential debate the liberals couldn't very well blame Bush. Must be Romney's fault.

The blame game, played as it can only be done by liberals backing a weak leader.

I don't know if I can wrap my head around you?

You bash Romney for -

Passing Romneycare,
and then support Obamacare, which was formed after Romneycare.

Signing for Gay Marriage,
and support Obama who supports gay marriage.

Not going to Vietnam,
but your LDS? so I assume you support missions? Right?

Your LDS, so how about him serving as a bishop and stake president? I'm not saying that's why you should vote for him, just an example of selfless service that I would hope you would understand.

How about him serving as Governor of Mass. and not accepting a salary?

How about saving the 2002 Winter Olympics and not getting paid?

How about the countless stories from people of his service to them.

On the other hand there's Obama,

1.5 million tax dollars to the Muslim brotherhood just days after the attacks in Libya.

PROMISING to cut the deficit in half and saying that if he didn't he would only serve for one term. Then, not delivering and running anyway.

I could go on, but I'm to my 200 word limit.

Integrity, it's all about who you REALLY are.

Not even close!

@ Hutterite,

If we are judging by those standards than Obama has become a complete and utter failure! He promised all those things and didn't deliver. If you are so strict in your judgement I sure hope you are not supporting Obama.

===========

The lies, deceit, lack of integrity and down right Dishonesty are not the values I find in my LDS Bishops and Stake Presidents.

Which is precisely WHY I can not support him.
I don't know who the REAL Mitt Romney is....nobody knows.

BTW - I liked the old Mitt Romney, Governor of Massachucetts best and would have even voted for him [because I'm not a huge Obama fan, and he's fallen short on HIS campaign promises - i.e, he's not liberal enough].

The Romneycare,
Civil Union/Domestic Partnership/Gay-Marriage,
Assault gun ban,
Stem cell research,
Pro-Choice,
Increase the minimum wage for inflation,

Moderate, NorthEast Rockefeller BlueDog Republican Mitt Romney -- not the Tea-Party Frankenstein Candidate his morphed into just to appease the radical right-wing.

The real change here is in the mainstream media that have been spouting poll numbers like they were absolute truths, but now question the accuracy of polls because they don't like the current numbers.

In answer to LDS liberal - integrity does not mean being so dogmatic that you never change your mind. Besides that, many of these attacks are one-liners with no substance. "Romneycare" was a 40 page state plan. Obamacare is thousands of pages of federal mandates that will take power AWAY from the states.

Obama is in big trouble. I spent last week in the midwest and they aren't going to vote for
him this time. The polls can say what they want but the people don't want him for 4 more years. Iowa is a toss up state but Iowa is really hurting and that spells defeat for Obama. Missouri has simply too many people that are Christian and believe that marriage is between a man and a woman so again loss for Obama.
