    The guy is at the bottom rung of the economic ladder, just like me, yet he somehow believes
    Mitt Romney could give two shit's about his boneheaded ass.

    I'll keep drinking the Kool-aid, as opposed to living in denial, 24-7.

    As if Barry Soetoro gave a shit about mine or your ass as well....

    And as far as living in denial goes.....
    Gas is about at 4 bucks a gallon when it was around 2 bucks when Obama took office.
    The economy is worse
    Unemployment is higher
    As is food stamp use and welfare use
    Our credit rating is a notch lower
    Hes more friendly with our enemies/neutral nations then our allies

    Living in denial is thinking hes actually going to fix any of this when he hasnt only NOT FIXED them in 4 years hes made them WORSE.

    Its stupidity and ignorance to want 4 more years of the same......

    Well the economy isn't really any worse than it was. Several indicators suggest this. Including gas prices (increased demand = higher prices), and GDP growth rate. For the latter, if you look at economic info you will see that it was trending downwards for a while. Under Bush's first presidency it was kind of up and down (but still positive). 2nd presidency was almost a straight trend downwards (but again still growing). The recession hit at the end of Bush, and that is further indicated by the GDP, as there was shrinkage for a bit. But now things have been trending upward the past 2 years, and have been back in the area of growth. That is a good sign. This year remains to be seen, but it still seems positive, though admittedly lackluster. And like it or not, wall street does have some bearing, and that is way, way up.

    I think we also need to ask where we would be otherwise? Personally I'd like to have seen more public works and less welfare but c'est la vie. Lets just pretend that GM and Chrysler hadn't been bailed out and had just shut their doors. According to my math from wikipedia (yes, grain of salt) those two employ at least 250,000 people, and account for a decent amount of GDP. I don't think we're better off without them. I think their products mostly suck, and really need to get better.

    Spanishfly, you seem to have the least biased political viewpoint on this site.
    You step back and look at the issues and candidates from the outside, while it's clear that some others are more firmly entrenched in their respective camps.
    So...
    Who's gonna' save us?
    Which one of these two Presidential candidates has stands the best chance of jumpstarting this nation?

    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows Mitt Romney attracting support from 48% of voters nationwide, while President Obama earns 45% of the vote. Two percent (2%) prefer some other candidate, and five percent (5%) are undecided. See daily tracking history.

    The recent numbers may have been impacted by a number of factors. Clearly, one is the fading of the president’s convention bounce. Last week, Scott Rasmussen anticipated this fade by noting that the conventions would have no lasting impact on the race.

    Meanwhile.......

    They have even attacked UK and German embassies. Its too bad said countrys have had their nuts clipped under the guise of diversity and multiculturism.

    More hijinks from the supposed "religion of peace".
    I guess the best answer for this would be to pull all troops,officals as well as aid from said regions but ooppps we cant because we are dependent on their oil. If we were energy independent then we wouldnt even be discussing this.

    That's strange, cause:

    * A new national CBS News/New York Times poll shows President Obama leading Mitt Romney by three (49% to 46%) among likely voters, and by eight (51% to 43%) among registered voters.

    * In Ohio, a new NBC/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll shows Obama leading Romney by seven points, 50% to 43%. The same poll shows Sen. Sherrod Brown (D) leading Josh Mandel (R) in Ohio's Senate race, 49% to 42%.

    * In Florida, the new NBC/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll shows Obama leading Romney by five points, 49% to 44%. The same poll shows Sen. Bill Nelson (D) leading Rep. Connie Mack IV (R) in Florida's Senate race, 51% to 37%.

    * In Virginia, the new NBC/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll shows Obama leading Romney by five points, 49% to 44%. The same poll shows Tim Kaine (D) tied with George Allen (R) in Virginia's Senate race at 46% each.

    * In New Hampshire, Obama leads Romney by five, 45% to 40%, in a new WMUR/University of New Hampshire poll.

    * In New Mexico, PPP shows Obama leading Romney by 11, 53% to 42%. The same poll shows Rep. Martin Heinrich's (D) lead in the U.S. Senate race growing to nine points over former Rep. Heather Wilson (R).

    If Romney loses Florida OR Ohio, he won't win.

    God, you're a complete fucking idiot. Between you and that dense m'f'er cowboydan, I can't tell which one of you is more worse. Like I've said before, if you didn't learn a damn thing in these last fours years, you deserve anything coming your way moron. The direction that Obanga is leading this country is wrong. I guess you prefer Socialism and Dictatorship. There is nothing this clown has done right. NOTHING!

    Yeah, Mitt's got your back, Sum.

    A multi millionaire, who's lived his entire life fed by a silver spoon, is really gonna feel your economic pain.

    A republican and a democrat were in a bar. The 11 pm news was on TV. There was a man on the 13th floor of a building who has threatened to jump. The republican says to the democrat, I'll bet you $50 he jumps. The democrat says I'll take that bet. The cameras scan the building and the guy jumps. The democrat is counting out $50 to give the republican. The republican says keep your money I watched this whole thing on the 6:00 news. The democrat says take the money I watched it too, but I didn't think the dumb son of a bitch would jump twice. Now all of you democrats go ahead and jump twice.

    A vote for nobama is jumping off a building twice.
