How about when Obama compared himself to JFK? I was waiting for "I knew JFK - You are no JFK" but did't hear it.

Here are a few other "Zingers" Obama could have hurled at Romney:
"Jimmy Carter called, he wants his failed foreign political policy back".
"Pauley Walnuts from "The Sopranos" called, he wants his white side-burns back."
"Herbert Hoover called, He wants your distain for the middle class back."
"Ronald Reagan called, He doesn't want you calling yourself a Republican."
"Sean Hannity called, He asked how deep you want his tongue up your a**."
"The Republican Party called, with a gun to their head from the Christian Right, they asked how long it would be before you gave up power and gave it to that nutjob you appointed as your VP".
..... I could go on and on. But now I have work to do.

When Obama took office we were losing 800,000 jobs a month. That is over 9 MILLION jobs a year and close to 39 MILLION jobs in four years. With his stimulus packages, largely paid back to the penny WITH INTEREST, Obama stopped the slide and instead, oversaw the creation of 5 million new jobs.

Compare this to Romney's 15 employees at Bain Capitol. Is that your vaunted "job creator"? Bain specialized in acquiring American companies and downsizing hundreds of thousands of jobs, which were largely sent overseas. Is that your idea of someone qualified to be President? Someone who made obscene profits off of American suffering?

When Obama took office, the DOW was in a nearly 8000 pt slide. It lost HALF of its value in a year! His policies stopped the bleeding, and since then the DOW has nearly DOUBLED back up to what it once was, climbing nearly 8000 pts the other way. Amazing! Notice that when Romney is announced to be leading in recent polls the DOW immediately starts sliding 200 pts? Is that what you want from a President? Someoone who not only doesn't inspire investing, but scares it away?

Romney can never be pinned down on his plan to create jobs. He talks about anything but creating jobs, because he has no plan! Instead, he constantly talks about cutting taxes on the wealthiest Americans. So basically Romney wants to buy the Presidency so he can cut his own taxes and make MO MONEY MO MONEY MO MONEY.

There is a clear difference between these two men. One is living in the past and only for himself. The other is living for all of us and leading us into the future.

Robme and Lyin Ryan for 2012? I don't think so. This undecided has made up his mind. Obama clearly earned another four years.

Am I the only one who missed Romney's flip flopping on how he would deal with terrorist in the Middle East. Here is what he said. He first congratulated the President on his actions

"I congratulate him on — on taking out Osama bin Laden and going after the leadership in al-Qaeda.

But we can't kill our way out of this mess."

Later on when pressed on how he would handle it differently, here is what he said

ROMNEY:" Well, my strategy is pretty straightforward, which is to go after the bad guys, to make sure we do our very best to interrupt them, to — to kill them, to take them out of the picture."

I other words first you can't kill them but if he took office that's exactly what he would do

Papa-Joe
That's because your a BRAIN DEAD LIBERAL.........

To Papa Joe. First off i am far from brain dead. I have a brain that I use to see past the party lines. I wouldnt consider myself a liberal either because I dont think in those terms. I think in terms of whats best for the country. And sitting here yelling about things that were never actually said is not good for our country. Open your eyes and stop voting for a person just because he happens to belong to the same party you do. Vote for the person that will do the best job. Doesn't matte rhis political affiliation. Can he do what he says he can? No? then he shouldnt get your vote.

See, thats what we call USING YOUR BRAINCELLS. Not sitting back and being a sheep to the party you affiliate yourself to.

Mitchell of MSNBC had Meeks on yesterday. This is a guy who is, has been under investigation by Ethics committee. He could not put a sentence together that made any sense. Probably why he still has his job.

Mr. Romney seems to have an archaic view of Russia as it stands today. He tried to flip flop out of his opinion that Russia was our # 1 enemy and probably forgot about AQ. Russia is by no means our closest friend and still irks us by supporting louts like Assad but its idea of imperialism and the spread of its doctrines has long past. Mr. Romney, like a school kid peeking at his friend's exam paper, made "nice" and ensured he did not expose his ignorance of world affairs by floating on the President's foreign policy. One that appears to be sound as Mr. Romney seemed to agree with most of it.

I agree Mitt failed horribly. Sadly people who have their eyes closed to the mans failing refuse to see it.
