Ooooo... Delores.... let's trade scores... I'm sure you're a "rocket surgeon"...
"Liars liike him"
Go back four years if you can remember that far back...
Ask yourself about all the "promises" your savior OBAMA made... with COMPLETE control of the House and the Senate... and tell me... who is actually better off today...
Uunemployment is higher (and even higher if you count those who have "given up" searching for a job).
Prices at the grocery store are higher.
Gitmo is still open.
Gas prices are double.
Maybe you can get a brain scan under Obama Care... oops, sorry... Medical costs are UP as well...
Keep hoping... maybe you can change...

I keep thinking one of the major problems with our country is our (your) lack of a proper education. The education system in this country today is controlled by bureaucrats, revisionists, and unions... which have managed to "change" history in the process. Our ancestors (unless recent, and then, in some instances) risked their lives to found this place called "The United States of America" where ANYONE has the right... to be whatever they want to be... President of the greatest "experiment" ever... or, dog catcher (no offense intended) Make life what you wish it to be...(If you don't work, you don't eat.... John Smith, the Plymouth Colonies)... and for those of you who didn't study... that did NOT apply to the ill, etc...
If you want to see the future... study your history first... blood was spilled for your right to spew whatever you wish to...

So, please explain to me . . . since Romney's entire political experience consists of being Governor of Massachusettes and tonight he pretty much claimed to be the best thing that ever happened to that state, then why is Obama winning in the polls there...and not just by a little but by a helluva lot!?!?! I gotta admit, most of what Romney said, when he wasn't agreeing with Obama, seemed entirely made up.

Romney won this debate for sure. Obama thinks that investing more money in education right now will get the economy moving again but what he fails to realize is that college graduates are even finding it hard to get jobs. Businesses want people with experience. If you put more people into school now instead of lowering insurance costs, you will see even more people out of work who 'thought' that their future was secure from education. I do believe in better education but right now we NEED to get jobs back in America before anything else. Romney clearly states this in his plan.

Romney practiced for months on how to fool middle class Americans during this debate... He new just how to deliver his lies to deceive and gain trust (his expressions and words were practiced over and over again). There had to be some reason why he was doing poorly in the polls before the debate - a lot has been revealed about his true character and plans for America. Those who actually believe what he said today need to take off their blinders - the real truth has been right in front of us for months!

LEARN why your ancestors chose to come here... mine and your ancestors most likely gave their blood so you could spout things you know nothing about... maybe you got an "obama phone" for your vote... I have to pay for mine...

It's true. With the national income down 8.2%, 10-14% of monthly paychecks going for gas, food prices on the rise, and 43 Million on Foodstamps and 23 million unemployed... where does Obama get off thinking American's are okay? That education is the #1 priority that will take years to reap any benefits and if his other ideas were so great, why hasn't he implemented the, already? Romeny is also correct when saying his first two years were wasted on pushing Obamacare instead of creating jobs. No, it's time to go, Obama. Hello, President Romney.

Obama.. great at pubic speaking... as long as there's a telprompter there..
Romney... busisnessman... understands that you cannot be prosperous in your business without your employees... I worked two+ years with no salary building my business... yet not once were my employees told they had to wait for a paycheck... EVERYTHING I had was on the line... my home... my family... my future... but, most importantly, my reputation. House payment, or payroll? My employees never went without a paycheck... insurance... or an "off the cuff" loan when things got bad in their households. My house payment? Many conversations with the bank... my wife's income had to cover EVERYTHING during that time period while I slept at the shop half the time... 100 hour weeks... Did I care? YES... BUT, in the end, it was worth it.... I lived through CARTER... voted for him... good southern boy... but, man, did we pay for that... hyper inflation... extreme gas prices... lines... limited to 5 gallons... sorry, kids, but, been there, done all that... don't want to do it again. My kids are grown... but, I worry about the debt load of 16 TRILLION dollars that SOMEONE has to pay back (gee... 6 trillion of it's under Obama's watch), ie, my kids and my grand kids will pay it. So... if you ain't been there, or done that, don't be spoutin' off about it... get an education (maybe abroad in today's world... in case your haven't noticed, you're 17th in the world now... we were number one in my day) so you can guarantee my medicare and social security will be there when I'm ready for it... I don't know... but I think I'm living in a country of lazy, whiney morons of late... and, why... ask yourself why... even in this suck ass economy here in the greatest nation on earth... people are still risking their lives daily to get here every minute of the day... travel a bit and you'll finally understand...
All I can say is, look at where your family came from and why... I KNOW my history... I KNOW why we came here in 1739... it was either death or change your life... lots of blood spilled for what we have now... don't disgrace your ancestors out of ignorance...

Gee, Dolores... experience counts for nothing with you... Obviously... you're promoting an "empty suit"... what, exactly, is substantial about the Obama diety you seem to worship? Guess I am "old"... 56 to be exact... and, to be honest, I see no "facts" in your comments at all... guess I'm just contributing to the "public good" here. Advice... don't speak about which you know not...
