    Come on AP, what is this, some kind of childish contest? This guy is creating a mountain of debt, and all you have to say is that he squeaked out a little more than Romney in fundraising. This is not child's play. Wise up.

    President Obama can use his DNC to get the Union managers online with him to get the funding he needs by the forced dues from most of the members, whether that person is a Democrat or not. It was definitely a union type convention in word and thoughts.

    If the Supreme Court of the United States did one good thing with their decision on PACs was to level the playing field with the way Unions had been able to tip the balance for their side for a century. The Citizens United decision, I don't believe is good for the country as it takes money in exchange for votes in a way I don't believe it should. However, money speaks and that has now moved to the courts, which is unfortunate.

    The robbers can now influence the courts who may be filled with gangs of people instead of men and women of character.

    "Romney has said he'll pay for those cuts by eliminating loopholes and deductions for higher-income earners. But both Republicans were unyielding in saying that the specifics would come only after the election."

    You have to elect us to find out what in our plan.

    I am guessing that they don't think we will like the "specifics" or they would tell us now.
