Rifleman: Mitt Romney secured 1.3 BILLION dollars from the federal government for the Salt Lake Olympics and he and his cohorts took huge bonuses while taxpayers were left to pay for the bail-out. Bain Capital also enjoyed a government bail-out at one point. The hypocrisy never stops. They want smaller government until they are in need. Paul Ryan also applied for and received bail-out money in his state on behalf of businesses. If you are going to criticize this admin, at least make sure you are not guilty of doing that which you criticize.

And JWB, Obama is merely treating other country's leaders with respect after the Bush/Cheney machine ran roughshod over our reputation abroad and shamed America with their tough swaggering cowboy tactics.

JWB : Can you give specific examples where President Obama's administration is not adhering to the constitution? I hear that a lot, but nobody seems to be able to give examples. If you watch Fox News, President Obama is made out to be the epitome of evil, also with no specifics. I don't know why having affordable health care for everybody is a bad thing. Governor Romney has laid out no plan that he would implement as president to provide health care to those who cannot afford it currently. Paul Ryan was able to go to college because of Social Security after his father died, and now he wants to pull that safety net out from under other people. I see more people falling into poverty if Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are elected. Their orientation is to become wealthy, but not everybody is able to do that, so we have a very few who are very wealthy, and many, many who are desperate and poor in our future. Their quality of life would decrease.
Everybody should try expanding the number of places from whence they get information.

At one time slavery was excepted as a normal part of life, until some with a vision changed things.

Today it's normal for many to have government take from the working man and redistribute it. Many have excepted stealing, lying, and covetousness as a way of life, and expect government to do this for them, with the excuse of providing a living.

Some day leaders with a vision will recognize this, and will help us be responsible for our care. This is what made America great.

Guess it depends on what Mitt would be President? We have seen so many different Mitt's the last year and have no idea who the real one is? I kind of doubt he even knows anymore, he has changed his positions so many times!
