Mr. Romney seems a bit less optimistic fellow. That's why I wouldn't vote him, yet,  Mr. Obama's  over optimistic attitude makes  me convinced  to  prefer the former over the later anyhow, because over optimism at times brings multiples of  complication in one's life and his/her followers, as per history records

As morality in America, and the world declines, it will be harder and harder to put a moral, god fearing, righteous man in office........our leaders will just reflect the will of the people in the end........that is why in the end, the anti-christ will be a hero, and worshipped by the world.........Revelation 13:3.........And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast.

Why are they voting for the Mittwit?  They are all Repugnicans, no other reason.  None of them liked the Mittwit, but, because he has an R after his name, they will follow like lemmings and vote for him.  Norquist is a great one to have on there.  He just wants someone with five digits who is capable of signing his name to legislation that the wingnuts put on his desk. That fits the Mittwit perfectly.

terrible piece.  all you have done is given the pols one more chance to spew talking points.  does not matter if they are based in fact or not.  have heard far too much from these guys anyway.

why not just plaster a warning over every individual--associated with campaigns and giving money.  political spinning at its' worst.  commenting in own political vested interest.

What the heck is wrong with these last comments? Really were talking about all the lies Mr President has told Americans. I  find it that more and more Americans dont know how to vote.  Romney doesn't have offshore accounts, Romney did show his taxes, But its funny how people don't mention all the things that Mr President loves to hide about his life. Finally for people on this website to presume that conservatives don't have blacks or Hispanics representing them is false. Powell, Condalisa Rice etc. And last but not least for people to say we will be dissapointed in Mitt is like not looking at our own president who has broken half his promises but yet hs supporters exuse him all the way. Grow up America, be wiser and stop using other people arguiments as your own.

I find it funny that not one of them is black or a person of color. Nevermind Nikki Haley, who was born Sikh. She doesn't count, technically, because if you look up her pictures, she's looks very white and therefore, if you are ignorant as to her personal history, you'd think she's white.

i am baffled at people who even consider RMoney/RLyan. How can you be so irresponsible. Out of country bank accounts. Refusing to release his taxes. Which by a way there is a reason why they do release them and he wont. He is no leader he is spineless.  Name 1 subject he stands for? The fact that he put his face on TV for the past 4 years bashing Obama every chance he could and then do a about face in the debates is pathetic. I do not want this used car sales man running this country. Putin thanked RMoney for naming Russia our #1 foe because that gave him the leverage he needed to put nukes in places where he was not allowed to by the UN. Now he can. So he has already screwed the US. I am insulted this man is in the same light as Obama. This country has hit a new low.

5 opinions and not one that is even close to center. The extremists have taken over the party and we have to treat them accordingly.

Wow! No sentient being could possibly vote for Romney/Ryan.  THEY LIE ABOUT EVERYTHING ... AND THERE IS VIDEO TO PROVE IT.  Also when these Republicans make the following PUBLIC COMMENTS and you chose to ignore them anyway ... you are not a sentient, thinking being.

"The cost of not releasing the returns are clear. Therefore, he must have calculated that there are higher costs in releasing them." - George Will, July 15, 2012 concerning Romey's 2009 Tax Returns.

"This is a man without a core, a man without substance, a man that will say anything to become president of the United States." ~ Rudy Giuliani about Willard "Mitt" Romney

Further, when a Romney rally welcomes someone wearing a 'Put the White Back in the White House' shirt, you know what their campaign slogan is ...

ROMNEY/RYAN ~ We're the White Guys

Smiling Mitt supporters should be passing out flowers at airports. But cloaked beneath Romney's ability to inspire this kind of glassy-eyed adulation is a man who would destroy global civilization to save it. (Not really   an exaggeration considering his recent chummy chat with war crazed John Bolton.) If you vote for Mitt, be prepared to go all the way in your support of him or face the cruelest dissapointment of your life.

There are some basic assumptions that everyone needs to make about the economy before they can decide if President Obama failed or that Governor Romney can succeed.

First: Was the economy in far worse shape than anyone realized when the President took office? If it was, then it's easy to dismiss Romney's claims that the stimulus failed. If the economy wasn't that bad, then it's easy to believe Romney.

Second: Does Romney have an actual plan to improve the economy? Obama supporters would say no, and Romney supporters would say yes. Has anyone said anything more than rhetoric?

Third: Did Republicans shut down the President’s policies after the 2010 elections? If so, then shouldn't they own the economy? Or have they actually been working with the president for the last two years?

To elicit pledges of not voting for new taxes while not eliciting pledges to not vote for new spending is to set the timer on the self destruct button.  You understand the political realities and happily place the poison on the county's tongue.

@rios79  

Perhaps you could elaborate about all the things he "likes to hide about his life" along with some "lies" that support your thesis statement.

You spelled Condoleezza Rice's name incorrectly, and you should clean up your grammar. No one influenced anyone's opinion writing at a third grade level.

@rios79 Romney doesn't have offshore accounts?  That is the biggest piece of rubbish in your comment.  Powell is also a great name to throw in there since he supports the president, or didn't you know that either?  Romney showed his taxes?  He did?  He also said that if he paid more in taxes than he was legally supposed to he shold not be president - he didn't count his charitable contributions so he would pay a higher rate to look good, but will probably amend that whether he is elected or not.  The president suppports education, something it looks as if you are lacking.

@rios79 All what lies the President has told, You have to be specific please dont say Benghazi, its a known fact now that it was an secret C.I.A compound that was why the attack and the coverup. What lies are you referring too..Hopefully you not referring to campaign premises in 2008 as that would be unrealistic since our country suffered a systemic melt down from employment to our housing. When you smear any man name you provide the facts and not your opinion..well that's what a SMART adult would do. You are right its some minorities who are republican but doesn't mean they support Mitt Romney. As Colin Powell thru his weight towards the president and was attacked by Mitt Romney campaign for doing so.  Since I stated when you swear a man's name you back it up with FACTS and not your opinion. No I am not saying the President havent made mistakes as that would also be unrealistic. You have to weigh the pros and cons of all people. I believe as a rookie when he went into the White House he had to learn on the job training. Now he has it and I  do not believe in his second term that he will not make the same mistakes again. That's were experience come from and what you learn when you make mistakes; It makes you able to not the same mistakes again.

Mitt Romney was never worthy enough to be a contender for the Presidency based on these FACTS, the man is a an empty soul when it comes to compassion, understanding. Its his way or the highway and you cant rule a nation like that.: I suggest you read up on the facts before you give your vote to Mitt Romney.

@rios79 What lies?  What lies?  Specifically.  More unsupported rubbish.  2 promises broken were immigration reform & bringing down unemployment rate to lower level.  Boo-hoo.  So the damage Bush Admin did was much deeper than Obama guessed.  And immigration reform has been blocked by the idiot house.  You are just a gd fool.

@mtngoatjoe Your third comment is great (as were the others) and right on.  This economy would be in much better shape had the Repugnicans not made defeating the president job number one from day one.
