Default Mitt Romney

So I know there is a lot of you here that support him. So tell me if he happens to win what good do you all believe he will do for this country? Personally I believe he wasn't good enough for the republican party in 2008 and he was the only option for this election. So educate me on what I may not know about him. After talking to my grandfather ( who is a republican ) said his father was not good for our state. I wasn't around then to know. Ready GO!

I think he will manage our issues like the successful businessman he is. He will focus less on blaming "the other guy" and more on identifying and implementing specific solutions across party lines within defined timelines. I think he will be like the federal equivalent of Rick Snyder.

Avoid 4 more years of this socialist leaning agenda. Start taking advantage of our natural resources in the ground, natural gas/coal. Rid us of a president that wants $8 a gallon gas. Repeal Obamacare. Run this country like a business, with a budget. Make me feel proud about being a Christian, feeling like you have to hide it, and not that I'm a racist for being white. How much more you want? A president that doesn't care about the next Jay-Z/Beyonce concert and focuses on the economy.

This country didn't prosper because of taxes and regulations. We will be prosporous again because we are working, using our resources.

He's going to focus more funding to NASA so that they can build him and all the other Mormon cultists a magic spaceship and wisk them away to Kolob.

That's the same thought I had about Bush. I voted for him the first time around. But the second time around I went with Kerry. I don't trust any of the politicians. But for some reasons the strike a nerve with me. Now I did vote for Obama since he wasn't Bush. But this year I'm not sure who to vote for.

Now for the guy that compared him to Snyder. I voted for Snyder and he is ok but I don't like how he is messing with the retiree's. They put in their time and deserve their retirement. Other than that I don't mind him. I'd like to see his bridge get built to screw up maddy's monopoly he has going on.

If you still have not decided who to vote for you need to take a good look at your self and figure out your values and morals, ask yourself about integrity. Do you like baseball and apple pie? If you still don't know what to do maybe you should not vote at all.

What does his father's time decades ago have to do with here and now? He's a completely different person living in a completely different time with completely different issues. Kind of a non-issue there.

The real question you need to ask yourself is... Do you really support the man who left our people to die (and watched it on a Predator feed) knowing he could stop it at any time and then lies about what happened over and over again to not just Congress but also You, Me, Our Families and the rest of America even though more than enough facts have come out proving what he keeps saying is a lie?

This is the greatest scandal/cover up of our generation. Nixon was impeached for Watergate... no one died. Clinton's mess... no one died.

Why in God's name would you support that knowing what you know now?

At the very least give someone else a shot at fixing our problems.

Please explain more on what your talking about. I'm not sure I know what you are really talking about. I don't watch much news hell I didn't know that bin laden was killed for about four days after the fact.

Post #'s 2,3,4,8 & 10 pretty much sum it up.

Do you want more gun control or less?
Do you want more government control or less?
Do you want more taxes or less?
Do you want more people on welfare or less?

Obama = more.
Romney = less.

Do you want a weaker military or a stronger one?
Obama wants to reduce our military.

Do you want more liberals or conservatives in the Supreme court?
The next president is likely to appoint at least 2 justices to the Supreme Court. Obama's track record is to appoint VERY liberal justices.

Do you want your president going around the world apologizing for us?

Do you want a president who is pro international treaty that allows foreign countries to monitor our gun ownership? Obama and Hillary were both very pro during these discussions last summer.

This x10. This race is not just about policies, its about ideology more than ever.
This candidates ideological ideas of what America is and should be could not contrast each other any further. No way is this race about just a couipla policies, this race is about the future of this nation as we know it.

Default Statistics Even Brewman can not defend.

#1 The percentage of Americans that own homes is dropping rapidly. According to Gallup, the current level of home ownership in the United States is the lowest that Gallup has ever measured.

#2 Home prices in the U.S. continue to fall like a rock as well. They have declined for six months in a row and are now down a total of 35 percent from the peak of the housing bubble. The last time that home prices in the United States were this low was back in 2002.

#3 Last year, an astounding 53 percent of all U.S. college graduates under the age of 25 were either unemployed or underemployed.

#4 Back in 2007, about 10 percent of all unemployed Americans had been out of work for 52 weeks or longer. Today, that number is above 30 percent.

#5 When Barack Obama first became president, the number of “long-term unemployed workers” in the United States was 2.6 million. Today, it is 5.3 million.

#6 The average duration of unemployment in the United States is about three times as long as it was back in the year 2000.

#7 Despite what the mainstream media would have us to believe, the truth is that the percentage of working age Americans that are employed is not increasing. Back in March 2010, 58.5 percent of all working age Americans were employed. In March 2011, 58.5 percent of all working age Americans were employed. In March 2012, 58.5 percent of all working age Americans were employed. So how can Barack Obama and the mainstream media claim that the employment situation in the United States is getting better? The employment rate is still essentially exactly where it was when the last recession supposedly ended.

#8 Back in 1950, more than 80 percent of all men in the United States had jobs. Today, less than 65 percent of all men in the United States have jobs.

#9 In 1962, 28 percent of all jobs in America were manufacturing jobs. In 2011, only 9 percent of all jobs in America were manufacturing jobs.

#10 In some areas of Detroit, Michigan you can buy a three bedroom home for just $500.

#11 According to one recent survey, approximately one-third of all Americans are not paying their bills on time at this point.

#12 Since Barack Obama entered the White House, the price of gasoline has risen by more than 100 percent.

#13 The student loan debt bubble continues to expand at a very frightening pace. Recently it was announced that total student loan debt in the United States has passed the one trillion dollar mark.

#14 Incredibly, one out of every four jobs in the United States pays $10 an hour or less at this point.

#15 Household incomes all over the United States continue to fall. After adjusting for inflation, median household income in America has declined by 7.8 percent since December 2007.

#16 Over the past several decades, government dependence has risen to unprecedented heights in the United States. The following is how I described the explosive growth of social welfare benefitsin one recent article….


Back in 1960, social welfare benefits made up approximately 10 percent of all salaries and wages. In the year 2000, social welfare benefits made up approximately21 percent of all salaries and wages. Today, social welfare benefits make up approximately 35 percent of all salaries and wages.

#17 In November 2008, 30.8 million Americans were on food stamps. Today, more than 46 million Americans are on food stamps.

#18 Right now, more than 25 percent of all American children are on food stamps.

#19 According to the U.S. Census Bureau, today 49 percent of all Americans live in a home that receives some form of benefits from the federal government.

#20 Over the next 75 years, Medicare is facing unfunded liabilities of more than 38 trillion dollars. That comes to $328,404 for each and every household in the United States.

#21 During the first quarter of 2012, U.S. public debt rose by 359.1 billion dollars. U.S. GDP only rose by 142.4 billion dollars.

#22 At this point, the U.S. national debt is rising by more than 2 million dollars every single minute.

#23 The U.S. national debt has risen by more than 5 trillion dollars since the day that Barack Obama first took office. In a little more than 3 years Obama has added more to the national debt than the first 41 presidents combined.

#24 The Federal Reserve bought up approximately 61 percent of all government debt issued by the U.S. Treasury Department during 2011.

#25 The Federal Reserve continues to systematically destroy the value of the U.S. dollar. Since 1970, the U.S. dollar has lost more than 83 percent of its value.

Get the movie Obama 2016. Watch it and compare it to what he has done so far and that will give you an idea of what our future as America the free will look like.
The man does not know what it is like to be an American, if he did he would be doing more to preserve this nation and not flush it down the toilet.
The above quote says it all.
Good post Doug

He's referring to Lybia. When the terrorist in Lybia killed; the white house blamed it on a Christian's you tube video. Eventually the white house acknowledged that they were aware of this terrorist threat and swept the "Christian video" story under the rug. Then they told Hillary Clinton to jump on the granade and save the President. She came out and said it was all her fault and our commander in chief had no idea what was going on. All this was in the last couple of months.

Obie is a hard-core Chicago-style partisan - Romney has a track record of bipartisanship
Libya. There are no excuses.
Our economy is a wreck; while Obie didn't cause it, he's done little to nothing to help it, and with the half-baked "stimulus" (i.e. pay back my loyal campaign supporters) he made it worse. Romney is a very successful businessman. We've had enough lawyers and social workers - it's time for a businessman.
Obie used the GM bailout to pay off the UAW for services rendered. It is a clear case of political cronyism to a degree that Dubya/Cheney couldn't conceive.
Paul Ryan > 1000 * Biden.

None of them are right for me, but i think Obam is the closest, But really we need at least another strong party. As is, one party just does something opposite of the other party, when in reality they are both lame and worthless.
