    To bad mitt isn't more of a chip off of the old block as they say. He hasn't cared much at all about the very people his father may have embraced! You know, at this point in our history, his father may have won! I think Americans want somebody like that.

    I watched the shows presented by CNN on Romney and Obama. What I found interesting is that they delved into Romney's background going back to his father, his schools, his friends, his mission, his business education and then his politics. If anyone could find anything bad to say, they were found. However, when it was their turn to do the same type of program on Obama, they started at his political career. They said nothing about his time in Indonesia, Hawaii, who his mentors were, his college experience, his church, etc. You'd think his life began in 2004. That was very odd, to say the least.

    Re: " . . .we just don't know much about our candidates' true characters despite the relentless coverage . . . ."

    Relentless coverage? Ha! Of only one of the candidates.

    Romney attempts to gracefully remind an enthusiastically friendly crowd chanting his name that his running mate is important, too. Result? -- the state-controlled media [MSNBC in particular] disingenuously and unapologetically spins it in precisely the opposite direction.

    As an illegal campaign trick [under federal elections, federal contracting, and federal ethics laws], and hoping to suppress a true picture of his failing economy, Obama orders government contractors to ignore federal labor law that requires them to notify employees of upcoming layoffs. He promises to cover their costs and fines out of taxpayer dollars. Result? -- the state controlled media won't even mention, let alone relentlessly cover it.

    Real relentless.

    When the liberal press has an agenda, they pursue it regardless of journalistic standards. The NYT is a prime example. They usually report the "facts" and then counter with "Conservatives say...." implying that they are factual but conservatives aren't. Dan Rather was the master of liberal bias.

    Read the article --

    Mitt Romney is dragging the good name of his father George through the mud.

    George Romney was a Republican, true.
    but he was moderate, Liberal, Bleeding Heart, compassionate Republican.

    This picture is worth a thousand words.

    This is how Mitt Romney learned "the work ethic" - he played caddy for his daddy!
