    REad the article about Hatch, it has a connection to take you to the pamphlet. My understanding it's in states that may make a difference to the election. Haven't studied it, but basically says what needs to be done, not what his plans are.

    He states this election is about trust. Read the article on the e-mails from Lybia which were sent to him within 2 hours of the attack and while it was going on. That, plus the fact that all we heard were lies about some video upsetting Lybians who instigated the attack for the next 2 weeks in itself makes me totally want to trust this guy for another 4 years. And who took the blame when he finally had to come clean -- Clinton.

    It all comes down to our current president is a self centered, lazy, entitled, narcisstic, ego-maniac who does nothing but blame everyone else for his failures. And he wants us to "trust" him and give him another chance. Weke up People. Check his record and what he's done. Compare his 2008 campaign speeches with this years -- Almost word for word.

    Let's look at this with a clear mind...

    Were are we as a country? I don't think any of us who looks at the current state of affairs in the United States would say that we are doing well. Our economy is in the tank with many, many more layoffs coming from major manufacturers. Our debt has never been higher in our entire history. Our government has never been more partisan than it is today (this is a result of poor leadership). We have terror organizations attacking our embassies as our government seems to be lying to the American people. Comments he made to the Russian Prime Minister that he would have more 'leeway' after the election absolutely scares me. Obama started campaigning earlier than any other incumbent president, using Air Force One. He's also spent over 1.5 Billion dollars on him and his family while in office. This is truly outrageous!

    The bottom line is that this president has failed at being president. He simply does not deserve to be re-elected. If he was a CEO of a company, he would be dismissed without question. Four more years would be a disaster.

    Great points Liberal Ted. I'll add another: "Shovel-ready jobs that weren't ready." But we spent the money on it anyway, so where'd it go? Do I smell corruption at the highest levels?

    Obama promised to balance the budget and instead he doubled the amount we are adding yearly to the national debt. So NO I don't trust you Obama.

    The new moderate Mitt and the late-release second term agenda? What became of the political season of vague generalities that seemed like all we were going to get? Is a race this close this soon to the end what it takes to get these two contenders scared enough to finally stop holding back on us?

    That's sure what it looks like.

    What happened to the "great communicator". No wonder he was a failure as a community organizer. Couldn't get pamphlets out on time.

    The real reason is of course, he didn't want to have to defend his proposals of borrow, tax, spend for programs no one wants. Isn't that convenient the day after the last debate?

    If he is soo proud of his record why not go off on all of his accomplishments. Like GM and how it only lost billions of tax dollars or solyndra that lost more or other green companies? Why not talk about the chevy volt that catches on fire and no one buys? Why not all of the wind mills? C'mon at least talk about obamacare and how it's helping millions. right?

    @ Hutterite

    Correction: Obama won 4 years ago.

    This race isn't over yet; we need to allow for a flurry of "run away from our record" ads by the administration, like him saying last night that there weren't any "apologies" and calling that false, when today's talk shows have played sound bites of it in Egypt, the middle east and all over Europe. So much for telling the truth and owning it.

    Don't count your chickens just yet.

    I do not trust Pres. Obama, except to spin his way out of the truth. I do not understand how anyone can vote him in again, given the past 4 years. He could not simply run on his record, so spent a billion dollars attacking and spinning and promising more just as he did before, while delivering little to nothing. Simply put, Obama talks, Romney gets it done.

    So do I have to go to an Obama rally to get this pamphlet?
    Truly the worst president at including all the American people and working with both sides of a discussion.
    I hope the details of his "latest financial plan" come to light before we vote.
    Why didn't he detail this during one of the debates?
    I think we all know the answer to that.
    Maybe it falls under the heading.... just accept it and we'll read it later, ObamacareII the sequel.
