I find it interesting that those who support President Obama's re-election bid seem to repeat the same stuff over and over - all negative garbage about Mr. Romney. The President has several problems that he has not properly addressed. He has tried to define Mitt Romney as this horrible , evil man. But when people actually take the time to look into Romney's background, they find that he is anything but that. If the only thing Obama can run on is that Mitt is a bad guy, then Obama cannot win. Another problem for the President is that his first term in office has not been exemplary. As VP Biden said, the middle class has been "buried" in recent years. Not an exemplary performance by the Presdient. And finally, given that a president's second term is never as productive as his first, Mr. Obama can't paint a rosie picture of the future for the American elctorate. There is no reason to believe that he will somehow achieve in a second term what he could not achieve in his first term. As the President himself said when sepaking with Matt Lauer in 2009, "“I will be held accountable … If I don’t have this done in three years, then there’s going to be a one-term proposition.” I spend quite a bit of time yesterday reading what the posts on the various politcal stories on this site.

You are one of the only people on this site making any sense. All the Obama followers can do is call Romney a liar. Romney was Governor of Massachusetts and is a successful businessman. What can we say about Obama - a community organizer and Junior Senator who became President and has done nothing as far as the economy or foreign affairs and if not blaming Bush, calls Romney a liar. The MSM is pathetic. They are so hell bent on getting Obama back in, they show how biased they really are. It is truly SICKENING!. FREEDOM – Thank you.

What happen to the truth in news? Romney showed he knows what he is doing and Obama showed he still doesn't have a clue.

Obama won 48 of them, many by a comfortable margin. That’s 48 of 52. Romney won one and that one only barely. That’s 1 of 52. Three are drawn. All part of the MSM/liberal conspiracy of course, including the four polls by Fox News that Obama won all four of, one by 8%. The Mitt has hit the fan for the Republican Party.

Obama is incompetent at everything he does. He is not qualified to be president. Anyone who is trying to take us back to Keynesian economics does not belong in the Whitehouse. His handlers need to buy him both a history book and an economics book and make him sit down to study them and then give him a written final examination on them. Let’s get him out of the Whitehouse now, before he does any more damage. Free friendly non-Keynesian advice to Obama: It’s the spending, Stupid! And now, the miserably failed energy policies of the Obama administration have come home to roost, with gasoline becoming unaffordable and unavailable. The laws of supply and demand are relentless. Another economic reality that Obama does not get! No drilling, no pipeline, no North Dakota oil, no refineries = no supply, high demand; and that all adds up to much higher prices. It is time to get Mitt into the Whitehouse. He is well qualified and understands economics and business, which Obama does not. If Mitt had been president, he would not have let happen the mess with gasoline prices and unavailability that Obama has caused. If the Congress were doing its job, they would impeach Obama in the coming week and spare the country the ordeal of this Obama-rigged election. There are no excuses for Obama.
