Did Al Gore pay taxes for his successful creation of the internet.
@ La Valfre. Well, I only see one party attaching success (unless its one of
their own-Gore, Carey, Pelosi and rich actors). What other conclusion can we
How come I can not trust the rhetoric about cutting deficits and creating jobs,
as if it is like turning on a light bulb. Guess what it isn't that easy.
Romney's policies are not significantly different than Bushes.
@Counter Intelligence"If only he can get that message past the
thugs in the media who select and distort what they want people to hear in an
ongoing effort to protect Obama."Kind of like the thugs in the
GOP who told Ron Paul he can only have a speaking spot if he fully endorsed
Romney ... even though he's a competing candidate?@Mountanman"I know your liberal mind has been trained to
distrust anyone who has succeeded in life, but trust me; we need more success in
American, not less!"I agree with the success bit but the low
blow about liberal minds is insulting. Mods can we please remove this comment?
I've had enough of the derogatory generalizations on this board.Things aren't black and white, not everyone is liberal or conservative,
democrat or republican, LDS or not ... their are shades of grey guys.
What really got to me in this article is the statement that Ryan is a
"deficit hawk". During Mr. Bush's presidency, Ryan voted for two
wars without securing funding for them, he voted for the Medicare Part D
prescription drug benefit without paying for it, and he voted to reduce taxes,
especially on those in the top bracket. All of these actions increased the
deficit. Why is he only concerned about deficit spending when there is a
Democrat in the White House? He is a hypocrite whose only concern is making
sure that the Republicans win back the White House.
My advise to Mitt --- Please don't get up in front of millions
of Americans tonight and simply repeat "Vote for me, I'm not Obama"
with an occasional "and the failures of this administraion" for 45
minutes tonight.It's all you've said for the last 6
years....You won't sway a single one of the 42% of the Moderate or
Independant American voters.We want to hear something tangible and with
substance, not a silly bunch of campaign slogans and pep-talks.
"We believe in America, even though the last four years have been full of
difficulties and disappointments, doubt and despair,Why is it the
republicans only mention the last 4 years, oh yeah, their guy caused many of the
disappointments and the despair, but if we just give a little more money to the
wealthiest folk they will make it all better.
LDS Liberal,What a terrible thing Romney has done. A great intellect
like you should be mad.I'm sure liberals don't look for
tax loopholes, and probably pay extra.Didn't Obama pay taxes on
the millions he took from us for vacations? What about the Pelosi flights?
Harry Reid didn't use any loopholes either?Your wisdom is
LDS liberal..Success is a good thing! I know your liberal mind has been trained
to distrust anyone who has succeeded in life, but trust me; we need more success
in American, not less! Unsuccessful people do not pay taxes, they don’t
hire people and they don’t produce anything! Only successful people do
Mad Hatter: According to him, we have to wait and see and take his word on
it.Knowing Mitt's track record, I'll take his word!
"We believe in America, even though..." I have moved all my personal
assetts, holdings, and Corporations into Foregin Banks, Foreign Trusts, Foreign
Accounts and Foreign Companies.Show me, don't tell me.
Well, so does the opposition. It's just that they have a different
approach. Each side in this partisan bickering argues that they have the
answer, but usually it takes cooperation to achieve a workable solution.Saying the "other guy" doesn't believe in America and is
essentially anti-American is like a high school football rally, to get the crowd
excited and pumped-up. Nothing more because their is no truth to the comment.
We often say the opposing group is no good until we need them. What if they had
a war and only Republicans were asked to fight? Probably, Republicans would
more than happy to have the greatest share of the fighting handled by Democrats
(as a concession for bipartisan cooperation?)So the question
remains. What exactly will Romney do as president? According to him, we have
to wait and see and take his word on it. That's not too encouraging when
he will need the opposition's cooperation. And if he takes a pragmatic
approach, that will really get the Right-Wing ideologues angry since he promised
that he is one of them this election cycle. But again, he can change . . .
"Republican Mitt Romney is stepping up for the most important speech of his
life, to an audience of millions"If only he can get that message
past the thugs in the media who select and distort what they want people to hear
in an ongoing effort to protect Obama.
