Presidential Winner Predicted in State-by-State Analysis

    Comments are off for this post.

A University of Colorado (CU) analysis of the 2012 U.S. Presidential Election predicts that Mitt Romney will win the election in November. The model used for the prediction is one that has correctly predicted all presidential elections since 1980, including George W. Bush losing the popular vote but still winning the election in 2000. [Details Here]

“For the last eight presidential elections, this model has correctly predicted the winner,” said Michael Berry, political science professor at CU. “The economy has seen some improvement since President Obama took office. What remains to be seen is whether voters will consider the economy in relative or absolute terms. If it’s the former, the president may receive credit for the economy’s trajectory and win a second term. In the latter case, Romney should pick up a number of states Obama won in 2008.”

The prediction model uses an analysis of economic factors to determine an outcome for each of the 50 U.S. states. It was developed by Berry and his fellow CU political science professor Kenneth Bickers. Two of the factors the model takes into account include state and national unemployment numbers and changes in real per capita income, both of which affect Democratic and Republican candidates differently.

The study has predicted that President Barack Obama will only receive 218 electoral votes, far short of the 270 needed to win the election. It also predicts that Romney will receive 52.9% of the popular vote.

“The incumbency advantage enjoyed by President Obama, though statistically significant, is not great enough to offset high rates of unemployment currently experienced in many of the states.” said Bickers.

The Berry and Bickers study will be published in this month’s Political Science & Politics. An update to their analysis using more recent economic data will be coming in September.

    If Baback Obama and the socialists retain power for 4 more years the USA will cease to exist and we will be governed by an anarchy with our freedoms totally gone. People of the USA need to wake up and realize how far obama has gone to weck the constitution!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Raven

      An anarchy? We would have no law so all there would be is freedom.

      • bad to the bone

        anarchy means NO government. Sorry Raven, some laws create freedom.

    • Joshua Brown

      That kinda doesn’t make sense…a government of anarchy is pretty much an oxymoron…and if it was anarchy as you predict, then people would do whatever they wanted, which is an extremest form of freedom…and I fail to see how Obama has wrecked the constitution.

      • bad to the bone

        if he is re-elected with no re-election to worry about, we will all have a front seat to watch this once mighty nation crumble into a pile of SOCIALIST rubble. Have you not read his quotes on re-distributing the wealth. We might as well all quit our jobs (those of us who still have one) and sit at home and wait for the welfare checks to roll in.
        BUT just remember, when everyone is on welfare, nobody gets welfare.
        I remember when there used to be a stigma to being on welfare, now with this generation, people believe it’s a STATUS SYMBOL. just sucks.

        Anyone could be a business man. Research his record as both a business man and Gov, and then create a valid opinion.

    • Andre

      I hope this prediction is wrong or we will have a racist, stupid, ignorant, dumb, out of touch president ever.

      • PH

        What has Mitt done to be considered racist? Other than being white which I know makes one automatically racist. Disclaimer: I am not trying to defend Romney. He will be another Bush. Unfortunately, Obama will be another Obama. Looks like we are stuck between a rock and a hard place.

      • Raven

        Romney has never struck me as a racist person. Less than 10% of this country would ever even vote for someone that is racist let alone become a party’s nominee.

      • bella

        Seems like you are describing the current idiot you call a president

    • bad to the bone

      I hope to God that this prediction is RIGHT. If not, we will be a SOCIALIST country within the next four years. T.J. Grow a brain, quit being a racist, just because Romney is white doesn’t mean that he is wrong.

    • http://www.pronews.com Pat7

      I also hope this prediction is wrong. Having Obama in the Office of the President of the United States is better than having an asinine millionaire like Romney.

  • Sarah

    Sure hope this comes true. Not anyone I know is better off now than they were 4 years ago and many are far less well off. The only ones who seem to be getting more are those on the government dole, which explains why those of us who work for a living are less well off!

    I would elect my cat before Romney/Ryan. Obama is the better man for this country. Romney only cares for himself. He is a selfish man, liar, racist, dumb, ignorant, liar, liar, liar, liar, along with his ugly old cracked face wife.

    • jason

      Andre, are you sure you know Mitt Romney? Or are you a paid democrat blogger?
      Mitt Romney is not a selfish man, he served as governor in Massachussetts. His salary was donated was donated to charity, he did not receive any compensation when he became president of the Winter Olympics. He has always donated most of his income to charity including the his heir money.
      Do you really think he is selfish compared with the current President.?

    • Urani Diot

      Sweetie I am pretty sure your cat would be far better than Obama! At least cats don’t take all my money and give it to free loader illegals AND take away all my rights in the process. If Obama wants to take more of my money to fund his Healthcare to pay for you then at the very least, he should help it fund the vet bills too. At least then I would feel like I am not lugging the weight of the fat assed free loading Americans on my shoulders for nothing.

    • Rick

      proud to be an ignorant thug andre?

    • Urani Diot

      Andre, your really have been brain washed. The Obamas love suckers like you! BTW I would take a classy ugly old cracked face 1st lady ANYDAY over that Elitist Amazon who thinks the world revolves around her. Tell her to stop drinking the Big Gulps and get moving (the amazon beast that she is). That’s like the pot calling the kettle black as far as I’m concerned. “Hey Michelle, look at me….. I am having a BIG GULP just to SPITE YOU! All 75 oz!!!”

    It won’t matter who wins in NOVEMBER, because the world will end in DECEMBER! So say the Mayans, so shall it be!

      The mayans never predicted the end of the world. If they were so smart, why didnt they see their own demise coming? And since when are the Mayans the end all be all? It must suck living by what others did not even predict.

    As much as I hate Romney, I really fear a version of Obama that has no reelection to lose.

  • buce

    Dum he headline. In one breath he states that his pole is never wrong but there seems to be other factors that could occur to make this article not very certain.

    • Raven

      If this prediction was 2 weeks before the election I might believe it, but this is too far out to be making predictions like this. It only takes a day to change someones mind or one of the candidates to do something stupid.

    • J.F.

      I just have to make this comment that has nothing to do with the article but what the hell is wrong with people and their inability to spell? If you don’t know how to spell something, look it up. Is it pure laziness? A result of public schools? Seriously!

        of course it’s public schools and rap, hip hop, hollywood and ultimately democrats!

    it doesn’t matter who wins all these presidents run on hidden agendas. the day the RON PAUL or any RON PAUL supported wins that day i will finally be happy. but ROMNEY OBAMA they can screw them selves i couldn’t give a damn about them. come November my absentee ballot will be filled!

    SMH, an anarchy is freedom to the extreme. Mitt doesnt care about you or me.. he only wants to help his rich buddies. WAKE UP People! Choose the lesser of two evils 😛

    • J.F.

      The lesser of two evils is a statment made by uneducated people who don’t treat their country as a priority and just take it for granted. I suggest you do your homework or you (and people like you) should stay home and NOT vote. It may be your “right” to vote, but you need to do it responsibly. I have more respect for those who don’t show up to the polls and cancel out the vote of somebody who knows what the hell is going on. Your ignorance is truly showing.

        Oh no! I’ve researched the candidates… I’m not some guy watching Faux news nor relying on the National media to provide me with information.

      Our country will be destroyed if Obama wins.

        Both have their own hidden agendas. Neither are great choices, but Obama cares for the general population. Don’t Believe me? Take a look at the laws he’s signed

        • bad to the bone

          Do you mean those laws that tax me because i took a job with health benefits. when i could just sit on my a@@ and get those benefits for free. $5,000 each and every year just to pay for lazy low-lifes to get t medical. YEAH THOSE LAWS!

    Darn if you do and darn if you don’t. If you plant a tree it will not bear fruits over night. If you scorch the ground it will take time before you can plant vegetation for us to feed our people. If you totally wreck the economy – bankrupt the treasury, the economy will not resurrect in three years. First there are many factors at play with some who refuse to let it resurrect, and unless the country is in a laboratory where you control every aspect of the experiment it will not turn around so fast especially if those at the help of the $ and job submarine take it to the bottom of the ocean waiting for the right “leader”. Too many players who don’t really care; they want what they want and if they dont’ get what they want they will make sure there is “no play”. Many seem to have forgotten the group responsible for wrecking the ship and they focus on the fact that the ground is still scorched and people still feeling the heat. I heard a 6 year old say “You get what you get and you dont get to pick”. we did not pick a wreck economy.

    Which is the lesser of two evils, and that is Mitt Romney. Our society is being reined by President Obama. He is a socialist and wants to make our country into a socialize one. Can’t everyone see that. None of the politicians want to speak up to him, because they are brainwashed that if they speak up, it is discrimanation. But not so. I am tired of hearing that word all the time. Some of the blacks just want to say that beause they know when a white person says somthing about Obama, they can chime in with,it is discrimanation. This is free speach and because I say that I don’t like Obama, some people will hollow the word discrimanation. Not true. Obama does not want the little companies to survive, because some have only white people that have been working there for years, so he wants to put them out of business. Hey Mr President,take a look, it was a lot of little companies that had work for people. If anything, President Obama discrimanates against the whites, and small businesse’s.I bet he goes home to the white house and laughts at what he did that day to disrupt something. I would not care what color the person is that gets into the white house, as long as that person is really trying to help our country, but President Obama is just distroying our country. He wants our country to depend on our government for everything. Wake up people, if that happens, we won’t have a say on anything. It that what everyone wants. I don’t think so. Let’s face it whoever gets into office, there will be something someone does not like, but I say if Obama is re-elected, our country is really down the tubes and you might as well say goodby to being really free. The government will be telling us what to do and when to do it. They will decide on everything. Our country was not built on this kind of treatment. So, if all you its discrimanation people think that way, then so be. Cause I don’t care. I am just speaking my mine and what is wrong with that. The word (discrimanation) is overused and just used as an excuse. Open your eyes people,before it is to late. It seems like everyday, you see Obama face on television, and with some famous star. Reason is that he is not sure of himself and by being seen everyday on television, and with a star, he gives people the impression that he just one nice person. Don’t let the smile fool you.

      • Roger R. Fernandez

        Though spelling counts, it does not affect the economy nor the state of the nation. Linda’s thoughts and ideas certainly do. I find them beneficial to a true political debate. After living under Communism for some six months in my youth, I find that Obama is taking me back to it in my old age. By the way, didn’t Obama say that he “had visited 57 states and hat one more to go”? And din’t Vice President Biden say that what the country needs is a three-letter word: “jobs”?

        • Roger R. Fernandez

          Excuse me, I meant “had one moare to go”, not “hat one moare go”

      Look up Romney’s record as both a gov and business man. He never praises himself for his achievements holding those positions, because it was so terrible. He doesnt care for anyone but his rich friends. He’s running for president soley because he wants to BE president, not to help any one else. Fact Check what he says and check Romney’s record

      • jen

        he doesn’t have any achievement that’s why he can’t talk about them.

      Stop attending those tea party rallies. Where do you get your information from? Obama grandparents, who raised him, are white. His whole adult life he has received a “very white” college education. The reason why the guy can relate to the common middle class is because he was one of them. Obama took out student loans, lived in crappy college apartments, and had debt leaving college. Romney knows nothing about student loans, he comes from significant wealth. So when Romney makes an argument for educational initiatives, and the middle class, it falls on death ears. Romney is very rich, very sucessfull, but has no message. This is why he will lose.

      • bad to the bone

        why doesn’t ANYBODY remember him at those schools, Where are his transcripts (SEALED) Just like his birth certificate.

      • bad to the bone

        Also where are his student loans? HE IS A BOUGHT AND PAID FOR MUSLIM!

      • Urani Diot

        Al lets not forget that Obama attended Columbia as a Foreign Exchange student on scholarship for Columbia’s diversification program. This is why his school records are sealed and he is paying millions to keep it that way. He is not a natural born citizen of the United States. EVEN IF he was born in the United States (which is a total lie) he had dual citizenship up until the age of 21 when he didn’t claim his loyalty to Kenya exclusively. He lived in those crappy apartments because he was a pot smoking radical following his communistic groups

    • jen

      Linda I hate to say you are a racist. The only reason you hate Obama’s policies is because it doesn’t benefit white Middle America country bumpkins like yourself or at least you think they don’t because you don’t know any better. If he were completely white (as opposed to half white and half black) these conversations wouldn’t be happening. By the way, where is the proof that he is a socialist? Where do you get your references from? what proof do you have other than what fox news feeds morons like you everyday do you have that the rest of us are missing. I can see by the way you write that you are not an educated person. im sure that you had trouble finishing high school and have a low wage job that requires no skill set. I also bet that you are old enough to remember when that and being white was enough to earn enough in working in some factory to be considered middle class. But, thank god times have change where red necks like can’t get a job at wall-mart. Anyone with half a brain and some education would realize that Mitt Romney would make everyone in America who is not rich into a serf if he is elected. This giving the rich or “job creator” did not work when Reagan tried it or when baby Bush tried it either. If you had at least some college you would that voodoo economics don’t work. They place the country into more debt as Reagan and Baby bush did and hurt the middle and working classes. For god’s sake and everyone else’s, refrain from spewing your racist ignorant miss-spelled remarks. We need less of your kind and more thinking people.

  • http://www.pennyleisch.com Penny J. Leisch

    Did you read about the judge in Lubbock predicting a civil war if Obama won? What does he think will happen if Romney wins and people don’t have access to medical care or food or jobs? Maybe he got the right idea tied to the wrong party.

    I remember coat hanger abortions, no school for handicapped children, no medicare or help for seniors who had no families to care for them and more. Frankly, I don’t want to go back. Regardless of anyone’s religious or political beliefs, a party that imposes those beliefs on me by passing laws taking away my right to make that decision is violating my rights. This election is about a lot more than the economy.

    Whose money will be paying for all the kids that are unwanted and living in poverty? It will come out of tax dollars for foster care–if we still have foster care. It will come out of tax dollars for prisons, which I’m pretty sure will have to continue to be in the budget. I’d much rather pay for birth control, if someone wants it.

    My parents were Republicans, and I grew up on that side of the fence. It has changed dramatically. The folks who blindly support a party without finding out the facts scare me. This isn’t the Republican Party my parents knew.

    • becky

      It’s the economy!! That’s why Romney will win. You can take that to the bank.

    I cant believe people believe that Obama helped this economy at all. Bush put us in the hole 4 trillion … has anyone even checked our dept since then?

    and he said if he did not cut the 4 trillion dollar dept by his first term that he will only be a 1 term president


    ^there is your proof that hes a liar ^ He said this numerous of times.

  • Dawn

    I think it’s kind of funny reading these comments. And how sad is it watching many of you attacking one anouthers freedom of speech as well as name calling like a bunch of politicians. Perhaps if some of your opions are so strong you should try to make a diffrence. Try starting your own buisness to create jobs, a food drive in your area to help less fortunate. And most important vote and make sure others do to.

    • Urani Diot

      I’m sorry Dawn. Although I agree with some of your comments, I no longer give anything to the less fortunate. Seems to me they have more than me – free health care, free education, free college, free housing, free clothing, free groceries. Sorry, I can’t afford to do it anymore. Maybe if they stopped having a thousand kids and control themselves or IDK BIRTHCONTROL (that we – taxpayers- pay for? Maybe if the brunt of them didn’t have iphones, big screen tvs, top of the line shoes, more vacations – In my area after an investigation they found people with EBT cards spent money on trips to the Cayman Islands, Disney, liquor stores, Bingo, Coach Store, etc. Meanwhile I pay my bills on time, go to work, take care of my kids, and HAVE NOT HAD A REAL VACATION in 20 years (that would be my honeymoon) and worry every day how we will afford to send my kids to college while the freeloading Americans and ILLEGAL “Americans” can go for free. So forgive me for being a little synical.

      • Kelly

        Urani Diot…couldn’t agree with you more!!! There are so many people who feel the same way you do. Like I said I don’t think it’s going to matter who wins the election, everything that has been going on with the “less fortunate” not doing their part is not going to change…it’s going to continue to get worse. All politicians know how to do is make promises that they don’t plan on keeping. They say all the necessary things to get elected and then nothing changes.

      • MLM

        @Urani Diot: Nothing to forgive. I see the same thing you do.

        I agree with you 100% but do you really think that millionaire Mitt is on your side; or the side of the working class? Both parties suck, but I’m going for the one that at least ACTS like they care about the middle class.

  • The end is near

    I’m voting for Mitt just because he’s white.

  • Kay

    I doesn’t matter who wins were doom

    • DoomAndGloom

      I agree, no good decision here. I’ll take the less of two evils….Romney. Obama (who I voted for even as a republican last time) Has lied (Getmo prisons, taxed us to death – health care as example, create a czar system around him that is accountable for nobody, etc etc etc)…then when he sees lose over the horizon, he starts keeping some promises. Romney, probably does not care about the middle class…dont care about his take returns, seems like an okay business man, but some of his social issues are about a hundred years out of date….so both must be weight….so I default to the VPs…Biden, is a nut job. Ryan seems economically smart, sure maybe turns off some with his too right lean, but in the end Romney/Ryan is best choice this time around. So again, our country is the real loser. After election…more taxes, more economic downturn, more jobs overseas, end is near. O well enjoy the ride while it lasts

      • Pj Connors

        I’am not entitled, I work hard for a living like most Americans,…but neither are the scum bags on Wall Street who manipulate the markets so the regular investor always gets screwed. They are the Mit Romney people…racking in bucks by moving leveraged money around but never building, creating or accomplishing anything but taking care of themselves. Let them rot in hell.

        • Steve

          Romney will be the next Reagan. He completely dominated the election and he made this country great. Raising taxes and increasing spending has been so completely stupid of Obama he has no experience to be president and became one way to soon. It has definitely shown in his inability to fix the economy and unemployment. Im sure you will be saying oh well he inherited it. If Romney wins and it stays the same I bet the “he inherited it from Obama” will be no where to be seen.

          • crystal

            Understand the problems was inherited from Bush to Obama and what took Bush to destroy in 8 years u expect Obama to fix in 4. What has Romney said that he would do to began to fix the problems inherted by Obama, bet you don’t even know. Unfortunately, Bush started a war for selfishness and greed but I bet you voted for him and was glad to have him in office, now look what has happened, not good is it. Think about all the families that have lost love ones, at least Obama got rid of 1 of the problems and is trying to end this craziness.

    I voted for John McCain in 2008. He was cheated out of the white house by Obama !!! I will vote for Romney, because I know there school history. Obama’s is unknow what he did in college !!! Fake birth cert. !!! Hates christians and the US military !!!

      Thats BS the people with real money are Romneys people, and thats why he’ll win. Where are you and your people betting I want in.

  • common sense preacher

    Here is a confusing issue, the title of the article does not match the content, There are two scenarios listed and each scenario poses a different result. Yet the title states, only one result, propaganda. Now in reference to Obama, he is a politician, Romney a politician, so both are not to be trusted. They are politicians. You idiots are treating politicians as your saviors, hmmm, It appears that your faith is in man, your hatred is in man, and your self destruction will be because of man.

    Now, Obama is not a communist, socialist, he is a politician, Romney is a mormon, probable a closet confused person. but he is still an American. Obama is an American, Christian yet you call him a muslim. wow! In the mean time, neither Obama nor Romney will do anything about the dual supply and demand system in the gs supply. that double the price of Gas.

    You people are idiots, when you attack the solution, and make love to the problem. Your hatred for Obama is unfounded, your love for Romney is un justified. Your self respect is gone, and you are nothing but sheep being lead to the slaughter. we call our selves a Christian nation. Jesus said love thy neighbors, as I have loved you, and love thy neighbors as you love your self. I guess most Americans must hate themselves< I mean really hate being themselves. Oh yes it's just the word of God.

    • Sara

      Oh Yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • alex pacheco

    Its sad that in the year 2012 the basis of the topics have to do with race or religion or even sexual orient. Look bottom line Mr. Obama was not qualified to take office as soon as he did, we can see in the un employment numbers and the lack of structure we have had these last four years. And this is coming from a dem. I do agree with rep that our country is going down hill to the number of gov handouts we give out to people that should not get any benefits at all. Mitt Romney does have a better grasp on the economic ventures that we need. If obama wants to win he needs Hillary Clinton on the ticket. I would change my vote then. But as of now Mitt has my vote !

    • Pj Connors

      The bad unemployment figures were caused by a meltdown caused, and not dealt with, under Republican rule. Obama inherited a mess and has done the best anyone could have done. If Mit gets elected it will be big business and big money back in rule. The outcome will be the rich get richer the poor get poorer and the middle class falls. Supply side economics ( a misguided Rupublican speaking point, is a joke when most of the wealth is held by retiring Baby Boomers…they will not be putting the money back into commerce, just putting it away for themselves.

      • Steve

        I dont know if you know but Obama tripled the deficit. I would consider that making a mess not just inheriting one. Quit trying to blame everyone else take a look in the mirror, Obama has been a complete disaster.

        • What??

          The federal deficit when Obama took office was over $10 trillion. The current federal deficit is $15.5 trillion. How did Obama triple the deficit? Besides we’re still paying for the war Bush started so not all $5.5 trillion was Obama’s fault.

          • What? What?

            Ok, there is a HUGE difference between the federal deficit and the national debt. 10 X 3 is 30. So if the national debt is 30 trillion, you can say that Obama tripled what you think the federal deficit is. Triple the federal deficit, Obama may have done.
            Bush didn’t start the war. The a**holes who crashed a bunch of airplanes into our infrastructure did.

          • Jack Madison

          Do you know it took Bush 8 years to put the U.S. in this mess now people expect Obama to get us out of it in 4 years. Bush has caused all these people to lose their family members because he’s worried about some damn oil. Give me a break. THINK people please.

    • Roy Payne

      Oblabla stated, “If I can’t turn this thing around in four years, then I don’t deserve a second term.” This is a quote from the man himself, so let’s agree with him and not let him have another four to finish his work of turning American into a socialist nation !!

    Eight in a row isn’t bad. Maybe someday someone will get nine. But it won’t be this guy. Statistically speaking, Obama will when the majority of the electoral votes and will be re-elected. The Clinton factor has to be factored in. I am not famous, but I have been right since 1984.

    • Tony

      I blame Bush. He got us into this mess. 95% of the Fixes Obama puts to the senate is struck down by Republicans. Thus Republicans can say “The President did not do anything to fix the Economy” When in fact it is Republicans who blocked almost everything he tried to do.

      • Steve

        The democrats controlled the senate for the first two years he was in office. They failed to even act then. Your point is invalid.

      • Roy Payne

        Somebody needs to pay attention. The Democrats control the Senate and if they wanted to pass ANY legislation, it would be passed. They haven’t even passed a Budget since Oblabla has been in office. The man AND his party are the biggest mistake America has ever made. But we can correct it in November !!

        • dre

          YOU need to pay attention. The Democrats do in fact control the Senate with majority of senators but things dont get passed out the senate with “majority vote” which would be 51 votes. Instead its 2/3 vote which would be 60 senators. With the current numbers of the senate, the democrats would need 9 more republicans to vote with them to get anything passed. Not happening because repubs number one goal is to object ANYTHING the president does. Even after all this obstructive congress, Obama will still prevail and get re-elected. You cant turn your head against immigrants, blacks, and woman and expect to get elected. SMH

    • Harry

      After Hoover (Repub) sat on his butt, FDR (Dem) was elected for FOUR terms and it still wasn’t quite up to speed… we did fight TWO unfunded wars (if you don’t count borrowing from CHINA) or major tax breaks when we still had a debt. Deregulation of banks caused the Junk bond and bank failures in the 1990’s. In the 2000’s we let Wall Street and the banks inflate real estate prices then they swallowed up the difference and simultaneously claimed insolvency was approaching. The taxpayers had to bail them out (they gave themselves HUGE bonuses) while the real estate market began its slow recovery. Why is it Bush’s 8 years of rabid destruction don’t warrant at least 8 years of good sense to really begin recovery? The Repubs have blocked EVERYTHING President Obama has tried to put through and now they’re being caught again and again: The “conservative” Heritage Foundation and Repubs in 1993 insisted the individual mandate was the fairest solution for healthcare. Mitt Romney followed their advice and created ROMNEYCARE in Massachussetts and Romney stated it should be used as a national model… which is what Obama did. If he were a Repub, it would have rcvd complete support, but hypocrites will be hypocrites and now it’s a bad thing. Pay attention and learn the facts instead of watch “Faux News” and you may catch up with reality. This cluster of professors are nothing more than “intellectual” mouthpieces for the “Right” wing agenda. They don’t predict who will win in elections. They state whether a Repub will or will not be president. The Dems and votes of the majority of Americans don’t count in their book. Karl Rove said, “we just want to elect somebody with enough digits to hold a pen,” which means Romney would sign everything Repubs put before him just like Dubya did – when Ryan didn’t give a damn about deficits. These people will subjugate all of us to be the 99% “have not” and the 1% “haves” and it will become much clearer to you that their objective is to enslave us completely while they keep all profits and spend tax revenues recklously on yet new wars (Iran). We will truly regret this as a nation if Romney is made president by the rich, for the rich.

  • http://www.tristategreenclean.com Matt

    Depends on what you want and either way you lose.

    Obama: Healthcare for everyone including immigrants and people who don’t work. Driving our deficit up more….

    Romney: Outsourcing our jobs overseas and creating low paying jobs and taxing the middle class more.

  • slippy3002

    Lets start by saying I agree with Urani Diot. There is so much free loading scum whether they are white, black, Hispanic, etc. It really doesn’t matter who the president is until they bring back the working for welfare. If you need help that is fine, but don’t make a career out of it. Also remember people its not just the president its congress too. The president is like the front runner of the band who takes the good and the bad for the band regardless of what everyone else is doing. As for the the unemployment rate; look at all the people sitting on 99 weeks of unemployment and extensions. There is plenty of work out there just look in the classifieds. And I don’t want to hear that crap about bush screwing it up and people expecting obama to do it in 4 years. Do you remember FDR doing it in 100 days pulling us out of a depression, a little over 3mos. I know the depression lasted for years before he realized his motto “Try something and if it fails try another, but we must keep moving forward”… It may not be word for word but you get the idea. How about Ronald Regan another great president that pulled us out of a “great resession” in a short time. So while he is sending his family on vacations on our tax dollars and twiddling his thumbs he should be working. The American Reinvestment and Recovery act… What a Joke! states filled their pockets and hired nobody to do the work but the already employed workers. The Cash for Clunkers…another Joke! Now there is no cheap cars for people to afford because they have all been shredded. 4-5 years ago there were TONS of cheap cars TONS….now $2,000-$3,000 Pieces of shit that people can’t afford anyway. I am saying Out with the Lazy president and in with a more progressive president that will work quickly. And how about the tax cuts Tax the rich and save the poor…Well Wake Up and look at who Hires you and Signs Your Paycheck! Save them some money to give you a raise and Hire more People…Start thinking for yourself America instead of dumb politicians doing it for you! Your business is not their Business. Their job is to keep this country running smoothly and Prosperous, not telling you what to do and think because that would be communism. I would Vote for a Republican Congress to keep Tax Cuts For Everyone than have everyones taxes go up because nobody can agree. I don’t want to give another $100 a paycheck to the government Groceries are EXPENSIVE anymore, But that is my opinion. Thanks for reading if you Did and sorry it was so long! God Bless!

    Secondly Romney is just like Obama. He is just as Liberal.

    Finally you are going to have to take responsibility for your own life. Obama or Romney is not the Saviour. They are egomanical psychopaths who will say whatever it takes to get them elected. Then they work for their own best interests…LIKE YOU NEED TO DO.

    The economy is in shambles. It is in a complete collapse. If you are obtuse…DULL…you havenot already figured that out.

    The debt is gargantuan. The United States is insolvent.

    We are going to experience hyperinflation…NO MATTER WHO IS ELECTED. It DOES NOT MATTER…GET IT?

    So you are on your own at this point. So…OPT OUT. Buy Gold and Silver to protect yourself from the storm ahead. This is your fair warning. Heed it.

    What ignorance. Do you know who Jimmy Carter (D) is. He started this economic mess when he decided that poor people should own homes. Reagan and Bush1 quashed this. Bill Clinton took it on again and pushed Fannie and Freddie to start giving loans to the unqualified at interest rates in the negative with balloon payments due at times in the future. This was a liberal plan not Bush’s fault. He had no idea that Wall Street was taking on the make, selling these loans to investors, and then hedging against them when they saw that the plan wasn’t working. Liberal planning and Wall Street hedging destroyed our country. Obama is not trying to fix Bush problems…he is trying to fix liberal problems that he does not understand. Gov’t programs working…none. Gov’t programs not working…SS, Medicare and Caid, public schools, the FED…and on and on. Stop government’s intrusions into our daily lives. Stop asking for a handout when you don’t need one. Stop this madness and get back to basics. I am not willing to give the current leadership another 4 years as their policies and agenda are scary beyond just economics. Give someone else a chance for 4 years and then assess and take another road if needed. Stop demonizing both parties and their people. We are a young country and we will be great again once we work through this time.

He has done more for this country in his term in office than all presidents combined since before the Reagan era. I, for one, along with as many people I can muster will vote for President Obama.

He’s running for president, but don’t ask for his taxes. He’s half Mexican, but his family is off limits. You people forget there was a surplus under Clinton, A DEM, and all hell broke loose under Bush who tucked his tail and ran after he not only killed our economy but affected the world’s. Now all of a sudden, they have all the answers?

          We are approaching the most consequential election in the history of the country and these people are actually planning to vote a given way because of a dog on a car roof! Thomas Jefferson said that a democracy is doomed to self-destruction unless the electorate has been educated in policy and social issues . He must be screaming in his grave.

      • nicholas

        Obama ate a dog on a visit to china. Look it up. Where was PETA and the media then?

    • john

      @Cindy the president of the united states is a joke, this guy has done nothing for the country but line the pockets of his cronies,vacationed and played golf on the tax payers dime,gone around congress to impose his idealog, and lied to everyone…..
      Oh and let us not forget the debt that he has accumulated but you go ahead and vote for this idiot it’s your right too but as far as your statement goes, you have no good reasons for this idiot to be reelected

    • Dan

      yep, god forbid Romney is elected, he strapped a dog to his roof. Obama all the way, worst he did was eat a dog.

  • Mike from california

    I don’t think so Obama will win his second term. It’s always you type that count the incumbent out. Remember Bush, remember Clinton. those people won there re-election.

    • Joe

      Bush and Clinton didn’t have such high unemployment rates, they didn’t double the national debt, and they didn’t break at least 20 campaign promises. The wool has been removed from the voters eyes. Bye bye OWEbama.

  • RR

    What ever the color of his feet that will be the color of his head? God willing he will not get what he wants this November. If he did bullying when he was young, first impression is lasting. Lack of respect to others as the same is he doing right now. He is bullying President Obama.

  • Dickyman

    voting for romney is like voting for a bank robber. I am been harasser every year to file my taxes by the IRS, but Rumney is getting a free load….Gush I can’t stand his criminal self.

    • HW

      Do your homework first, “don’t talk just to talk”.

    • Joe

      If Romney broke a law with his returns, the IRS with Obama’s urging would have his head by now. Stop beating a dead horse.

      • Coventina

        If there’s nothing to hide, there is no reason not to releae them.

        • Ron

          So based on that thinking, why won’t Obama release ANYTHING about his past. He who controls the media, controls the minds of the mindless!!

          • Richard

            Wouldn’t this also be true of school transcripts and medical records?

    • John

      I got news for you. Almost every tax return like his is audited. There is no way he is a tax cheat. You just like listening to the talking heads instead of using yours.

  • RUanAmericanSheep

    There are “financed” stories. Trace the producers to the money. This is pure private sector propaganda in the truest form.

  • Dick

    I am conservative, responsible for myself and my family. I do not accept that government should decide what level of comfort is acceptable for our families. I do not believe that government handouts will lead any family to prosperity. How many people living on Food Stamps and Welfare live decent and successful lives? Why would any family strive for a bare minimum of economic success and happiness? I believe a woman has the right to choose the outcome of a pregnanacy. I also believe that if the woman has the right to ask for financial support of the child, she in turn owes the father of the unborn child financial support for pain and suffering if she decides to end the pregnancy. When did we become a country of acceptable minimum acheivement? things people should think about when casting a vote for an elected official: Have they ever worked a JOB? Where did they go to school? College? Did they have to earn their education? Or did their family help pay the way? Did they have things given to them or did they earn them? Do they vote themselves raises at the cost of indebting the community they are working for? How long do I have to work to support the elected official after they have finished serving? Is being an elected official their job or their calling?
    November is coming. In my humble opinion it doesn’t matter who we elect. Both have problems and flaws. Both are really only looking our for themselves. I won’t vote for Romney. I can’t vote for Obama, because I am conservative and immediately labeled a racist for being conservative. It doesn’t matter which way we go because as a member of society we are heading down the wrong path. We no longer accept responsiblity for our decissions. We want to blame our neighbor for our errors and we require our community to pay for our failures. Maybe we can change the path we are set on. Something tells me it is too late. When you cast your vote, are you casting it because you want to take your neighbors stuff or do you want to help your neighbor move forward?

  • rob

    i look at it like this as far as religion goes yes romney is a mormon and not afraid to say so ,as far as obama,lou alcider better known as kareem abdul jabbar,cascious clay better known as muhammed ali and cat stevens now with a muslim name all changed their names when they accepted the muslim religion barry obama to barrack hussein obama must mean he accepted muslim back as his religion???? just something to think about and the first president to have the us credit rating cut and the first president to be judge jury and executioner when he ordered drones to kill al awaliki in yemen although he was preaching against the us what right does obama have to kill u.s citizens without any convictions or even any kind of trial.what would be said if bush would have done these things?? i predict romney will win in a landslide as obama has nothing to stand on but broken promises go look at what he said he would do in 2008 and see for yourself in his own words and what he has actually done like close gitmo,stop nuclear prolifiration,fix the economy in his first term.he wanted the job won the job then blames everone else for his failures if he didnt know what he was getting into or just didnt understand he should have not ran oh yea and those shovel ready jobs and the summer of recovery in 2010 hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha all the way to the bank

  • Rodney Harding

    God help us all if romney wins.He would be president in name only while others pull his strings.
    Don’t bel;ieve me?Just look what grover norquist had to say on the subject.Something to the effect,”we just need someone who can hold a pen in their hand to do what we tell them to do”.

    • Tom

      I voted for Obama in the last election. He has fallen short of what he said he would do for this Country. I will most likely vote for Romney in November. The economy is my issue and believe Romney is better qualified. And as for taxes – lets say Romey turns over his last 15 years of tax records and only paid 7 percent – who cares? If that is what he paid without breaking the law then he is just a good business man – something each and every one of us would do. Dont tell me you would offer to pay more taxes! Obama has gone too far left and I wish H. Clinton was the candidate!

  • W. Scott Miller

    This is the most important election in my lifetime and I have been around over 60 years. By re-electing Obama, a once fair and prowd country will continue down the path toward socialism (see Europe)! This is born out by Obama and his cronies belief in wealth redistribution (I earned mine), government control of Health Care, Education, under the table deals with dishonest union leaders, jepardizing our security by refusing to uphold existing immigration laws and by making America a welfare state. I certainly don’t mind helping the needy but balk at supporting the lazy. We are guaranteed the opportunity to be successful not success itself. All may be born equal but what you do with your life separates the haves from the have nots. The economy is tanking because the liberals spend and waste money owithout regard to revenues available. Imagine if we all did that. Obama’s foreign policy and his apologizing for America is a disgrace. His support for Muslim interests over those of American citizens continues to divide the country and unsult our military. Obama being a phony who fooled voters in 08 has never served his country in the military, never managed a business and does not have a clue to how to fix the economy. That’s right, let’s raise taxes on businesses so they will continue going overseas and continue not to create the jobs this economy and country so badly needs.

    • Lu

      Amen finally maybe we can get our spending under control before we are taken over by some other radical form of government. We need to stop borrowing money from a COMMUNIST country. Government needs to run their budget like we do. DONT SPEND MORE THAN YOU TAKE IN.

      • http://presidentialwinnerperdicted shirley

        this presidential election we don’t have anyone really worth voting for.we are heading for socialized country with obama but on the other hand romney is for the rich not the poor.we as americans should think twice about who we vote for not i am a democrat so that’ts the way i will vote or i am a republican and that’s the way i vote.the elderly are barely scraping by like my self, forced to retire early because of disabilities.we don’t have a middle class any more.romney is talking about bringing jobs back from over sea’s is he going to bring his companies back to america and give those jobs to americans? we need to get rid of obama care. we as americans can get our own insuranse we are loosing more and more good doctors. the tea party didn’t care about the airline workers,they still went on vacation,they have blocked anything that would benifit this country but they voted in obama care so they can pass the buck.be very careful research both party’s. we as a nation should take care of our own stop helping every tom and dick country do you really think those countries care about us. i just think we need to get back to the original constitution.we the people should be counted not the delegates.

        • Dan

          Shirley, how many poor people have given you a job? How has the war on business done at crating jobs? How will taking more from the so called rich create more jobs? If you had a good paying job, were paying all your bills and had saved enough to start your own business, how would a tax increase on your accumulated wealth affect your plans to start a business and employ a few people? would the money taken from you benefit your potential employess as much as the job you would have created for them?

  • George Bundas

    Based on the statistics, in the last twenty years our big corporations created more jobs in foreign countries than they created in the United States. At the same time, our big corporations are wealthy how they never were before. This is happening because in the last twenty years we live in a new economic reality–the global economy. The global economy hit the middle class in Western countries. The Republican Party and the Democratic Party believe in free market ideology. How long these two parties will operate based on this ideology nothing will be changed in the United States. I’d like to believe the Democratic Party will change its ideology in September when it will hold its convention. With a clear message to the American middle class and with clear solutions to change our ideology and our economic policies to bring the jobs back to the United States and to have economic growth, the Obama administration has a chance to turn the table and to win in November. The Republican Party is trapped in its conservative ideology. It is clear: In the last twenty years Republican ideology and Democratic ideology (free market) didn’t work. In my view, in our country the big problem is ideological, not just economical. We have to adjust our ideology and our economy to the global economy. After these two political conventions the party who will be capable to deliver a clear political platform to be relevant to the majority of American people will win in November.

  • Scott

    Does it matter anymore? This place will fall apart no matter who wins. Why? Because the political parties will block any beneficial programs of the other party. Too, nobody means a word they say.

    Promises are only ways of changing people’s minds. Then those promises can be ignored. How many really know the way these guys have voted? We hear about them(both good and bad) and accept it as gospel. How much is true? How much is pure lies?

    Whoever gets elected, this country is in for a crash to become a third world country. In a manner of speaking, it already is.

  • W. Scott Miller


    Your comments about America needing to change our ideology sounds very much like Karl Marx and European Socialists like the prissy French. We don’t need that here. What we need is for everyone regardless of race, political party, gender etc., to pull their own weight and if for nothing other than simple pride do their all to help themselves. That goes for corporate america as well. Unfortunately, Democrats make it more cost effective for many not to work so we can’t really blame them. But we can put work into welfare again. America can be great again but we have a long way to go and we need to start in November by defeating a socialist minded moron.

    • Janet

      All this talk about the welfare system and the healthcare issue are not the only thing wrong with this election. It is also that the Republicans want the rich to get richer and pay less taxes while the middle class and the lower class pay more. As for the healthcare system being like Europe at least there they do not have to worry about how they will be able to care for the elderly and spend all their retirement on meds. There children do not go without care due to not being able to go to doctor or being able to pay for meds. To everyone’s dismay not all low income children are eligible for medical help so think and research before you blowup about what you do not know. And as for one of the VP candidates women do deserve equal pay for equal work.

      • Steve

        Janet, 49% of Americans pay NO income taxes. THAT is the problem!!! You could tax EVERYONE making more than $1 million a year 100% of their income, and it would just be a drop in the bucket. Obama’s giveaways of stimulus money to his “buddies” and failed “green jobs” that were a farce is what is destroying our economy. Give the people back THEIR money, instead of taxing us to death, and we will spend more, which will create more demand for goods and services, which will cause a need for jobs. Everyone should be required to take and PASS a course in basic economics. Just because someone needs healthcare, and it is a sad story, does not mean they should get help for FREE from the Federal treasury. Where is this concept in our Constitution please?

      • http://ebrianrose.com E. Brian Rose

        Janet, politicians don’t make the rich richer. Wise decisions on their part make them richer. When somebody uses their money to invest in other US companies, they should not be penalized for making money on that investment. They should not be demonized. They should be thanked. When the “rich” start or expand businesses that result in more jobs, that means more middle class will be paying taxes. OH NO, NOW THAT I HAVE A JOB I HAVE TO PAY TAXES. What a crappy way to look at the world. Reward those that create jobs. Stop giving freebies to those that refuse to work. There, I just solved America’s problems.

  • Jess

    Ever heard of Schrödinger’s cat? Besides, this isn’t a normal election. (Though Bickers is good…yes, he is well-known, so you cannot just toss his work out and ignore it.) But by all means, scare the Obama base into showing up. You may be disenchanted with him, but what, you gonna vote for Romney? Unless the Republicans think Obama really will win, then they’ll sit home, ’cause guess what…they are disenchanted with Romney. (Can you say 1996?)

    why won’t people understand that if Romney is elected the heath care is gone and the poor and working class is screwed you f****** idiots. so why everyone has something bad to say about Obama or won’t vote for him just watch how stewed your lives will become. I’m talking about the depression times 1 million. so vote for whoever you want

    • Steve

      Dude….we are headed for depression NOW! Obama’s “giveaway” mentality is breaking our country. There will be no “middle class” if this continues. The middle class is who is getting hurt the worst. The only one benefiting are those on welfare, who continue to receive more and more $$ from the ones that are working and succeeding. Please don’t spread your idiotic comments any more, as I fear more will believe what you do now. This generation expects something for nothing, and that ideal does not exist in the real world. Obamatopia is a farce

      • martha

        well said!

      Thank you Dis Dick. You have spoken the truth. Plain and simple. The American people are going to vote for a Rich, White Mormon to run this country. And his tax plan is going to hit the Middle and poor class like a ton of bricks. The wealthy are going to reap in this election if he becomes President. I weep for this country if that happens.

    • http://google JEAN FISHER

      Are you stupid! Obama’s health plan will break you. Doctors don’t even want to take people on Obama’s plan. Work places will lay off people brcause they can’t afford to pay for Obama’s plan. You might be one of them. you better listen a to people that know whats going on, stupid people.

    • William the Great!


      It’s all about you isn’t it? Obama has done a terrible job, companies right and left are not spending money on growing “their” economies because they have to pay for “Your” health care!

      I don’t personally vote just because the government is giving me a free lunch – but if that is how you “roll” then that explains a lot about what has gone on in the country for the last four years. The US Government is not a charity nor salary generator for Americans who do not put in the effort to assist society – I.E. Actually work and pay taxes.

      Cut spending, Allow businesses to grow, foster an environment where Americans invest money – bring jobs back to the US.

  • errod lawton

    Don’t spend more than you make. If Obama somehow gets re-elected, I really hope he raises taxes if he refuses to cut spending. We all need to pay more if we’re going to spend more.

    • Steve

      please research and listen to where your tax dollars are being spent NOW, and where they will continue to be wasted if he raises taxes. It is not a revenue problem, it is a spending problem. The Federal government cannot continue to be a “cradle to grave” provider for people who won’t support themselves. If we can keep more dollars in OUR pockets, we will spend money in OUR economy, which will drive the need for more goods and services, resulting in the need for more people to work. Economics 101.

The US Government is not a “charity”. Stop blindly following the rest of the “Cattle” to the slaughterhouse.

      • Mike The Dem

        Ralph, You’re right. Just more Republican propaganda from the likes of Fox news… speaking of Fox News, William – you’re a moron. Socialist agenda? Sounds like someones late for his Rush/Hannity breastfeeding. Just a guess but I’m thinking that you, like me, like most people don’t make over 1/4 million a year. If this is true, you – like us, are the dead weight you speak of. You think I’m losing any sleep because the super-rich wont get their cushy tax breaks anymore? I don’t think so. The great thing about the current state of politics is that more people are taking part and speaking up. The bad part of it all is that people, like William, who dont know anything but crap they read online or heard from the puppet hacks on Fox News also wanna take part in the convo -> dragging down the rest of us with their stupid, immature, incorrect perspectives.

        • Dan

          @ Mike the DIM….when you call for taking from the “fourtanate” and redistributing it to all others, it’s not socialism? this administration has accumulated 8 trillion in debt in 4 years, Take 100% of ALL the earnings of people in excess of 250k a year and we’ll still be 6 trillion short of paying the bill from the last 4 years.

          • Mike The Dem

            First lets discuss “redistributing,” shall we? The amount of “welfare” going to the average family has DROPPED over the past 4 years due to an increase of regulations in both applicability for and remaining on these programs – admittedly due to programs initiated during W’s last term. However, if this money that is being “taken from the fortunate” (or as its been called for the first 200 years of America’s life – taxed in relation to income revenue) isn’t going to the poor, assistance-using scapegoats where is it going? First the basics, defense, education, roads, etc. Then to other projects like..I dunno.. a war to find WMDs that were never found, rebates to high-earners as soon as W took office, and to pay for bailouts like TARP when the brilliant idea to de-regulate wall street blew up in their faces and caused the economic outhouse everyone on here is talking about. If we want to discuss “socialism” lets get its real defninition – not one from the uninformed. Socialism is a form of government ideology that dictates that everyone contributes through labor and money to go to things that will overall be used for everyone. Kinda sounds like how the military is funded, but lets see you tell a Marine that his paycheck coming from your taxes makes him a socialist. We all pay and recieve the benefits from defense, roads, education (well most of us), librarys and the government itself. We all have paid taxes to pay for the salaries of presidents, police and firefighters. If you think these are too socialist for you, move to another country. As for me, I feel that these people and the freedoms that we enjoy are what makes this country the best in the world. And finally, you speak of the debt. Where was your contempt for the rising debt when it doubled under Reagan? Where was your outrage when it increased 6.1 trillion under W with another 7 backloaded in mandates to be paid for long after he left DC? The truth: people only care what “the other guy” is spending and what its being spent on. When its “their guy” who cares?

          • Dan

            Mike you seem conflicted. You seem outraged at military spending, yet group many local programs (police fire roads) with Federal powers. I find it strange that the ennumerated powers of congress are specifically stated in the cinstitution, and “to providefor common defence” is one of those listed. roads, education, welfare, federal pensions (SS, medicare) are not. This is the root of our problem, our constitution has slowly been stretched to include socialist agendas that were never intended as fedral powers.
            We have come to the point where those items that are not ennumerated powers of the constitution are deemed as more important role for our government than those that are.
            I agree TARP was an misguided use of federal money (err ahh mine yours and all other americans). Unlike Gm’s bailout and the stimuslush bills, almost all of that money has been repaid, and it looks like the treasury will ultimately realize a profit on that disbusement. Gm will never pay the amunt given back, and stimulus went to providing temporary unsustainable gov’t jobs, generating millions to public worker unions. This does’nt bother you?

          • Mike The Dem

            Money going to workers unions who have brought us such greatest hits as “8 hour work day” “health insurance for workers” “no child labor” “no working on religious holidays” ? No, it doesnt bother me. They give a damn about the average worker more than the big businesses “downsize, fire and ship to China” Bains of this world. As for your facts about the repayment of loans, you should double check your facts. GM paid 8.1 bil of its 6.7 bil loan back early. Last I checked the tresury had only recieved 76% (100 billion less) of its “tarp investments” back from wall street. Either way, if we were to talk about redistribution of wealth, its in these loans to big business and not to investment in the average 9-5, support my family worker. Throwing money at the rich doesnt help everone else the same as actually “taking” from the rich doesnt help the rest. Good thing for us that no actual “taking” is involved – just expecting them to pay their taxes at the same rate as everyone else. Someone who makes in a bonus the same as a cashier at walmart makes in their life should not be paying taxes at a lower rate than the cashier. Endless complaints about how those on assistance aren’t “doing their part” and “paying their share” but when asked to pay their fair share on income these same people throw a fit. I’ve spent far too much time talking to people who dont seem to realize that they vote and argue against their own interests over and over again. Perhaps the world does need to go to hell so they can finally see the light. However, this is one conversation with someone most likely voting against their interests in which I will just shake my head and walk away. Good night and have a great tomorrow.

      • Jerry

        No, we need four more years. His first four was fixing Bushes screw up. What we didn’t need was four more years of Bush. Do you know that the only term that job growth ever went down was during Dubya’s term. It went down -.84%. I will give you one guess what Obama’s job growth rate was his first four years… you got it +.84%

        • Dan

          Jerry are you on drugs? what is your source? In Jan 2008 unemployment was 4.6. It has peaked at above 10% under Obama, and remains above 8%. If you loose 10 million jobs, then regain 2 million over time, you still lost a net of 8 million jobs.

          • Danny T

            @Dan. I assume you mean Jan 2009 because Bush was president until Jan 2009. From the (nonpartisan) Bureau of Labor Statistics: The unemployment numbers in Jan 2009 were 7.8%. As of last month they were 8.3% – a net increase of .5%. Lets compare it to what Bush was handed. In Jan of 2001, the unemployment numbers were 4.2%. Like we said before, when he left it was 7.8%. An overall increase of 3.6%. Looks like, if we’re arguing unemployment numbers, Obama is a much better choice than Bush was and, if Mitt is going to continue Bush’s “deregulate and throw money at the top so it trickles down to the rest” policy, a much better choice than Romney as well.

          • Dan

            hahaha Jerry, Really? Yes unemployment ticked up in bush’s last year, of 8. Bush took over we entered a recession, was comming out of it, and had 911, and still even if you factor the 7.85 he left (I did error in stating the 2008 number) he averaged 5% unemployment for 8 years. You overlook the stimulus that was to keep unemployment below 8%, the summer of recoery, and you think Obama has a clue how to help the economy? Of course wage a war against business will bring them jobs back. I see what you’re talking about 4 more years of incompentency, the burden of Obamacarethrust on employers, repealing tax cuts for every american (bush tax cuts) and we’ll all be better off.

          • Danny T

            @Dan. That wasnt Jerry’s response, it was mine. I dont know where he got his numbers, but I told you where mine came from. You can tell that it was me because the name above it says Danny T and not Jerry. Your response to mine was very funny though. It just goes to show that data can be altered to show anything you want it to. I responded to your comment on what it was like when Obama took over and what it is like now with proof that it really hasnt gone up all that much from when he took over and then you chose to focus on “averages” instead of “where is it in relation to where he took over”. Whats next, point out Bush’s lowest month and compare it to Obama’s highest? Too funny. Obama doesnt want to extend Bush tax cuts for “every american, just those making under $250k (middle&lower class) and as for thrusting “Obamacare” on employers? Even funnier. The same 2 guys who wrote both (obamacare and romneycare) recently gave an interview in which they said that both are esentually the same with obamacare having an extra 3 000’s at the end. So either way we’re gonna be voting for someone who installed an obamacare like healthcare program. And as for thrusting it on employers… amazing. Have you actually read the supremecourt case? It doesnt force employers to magically cover their workers, it makes the workers buy healthcare on their own – if not provided for already by employers. People like papa johns are trying to use it as a political reason as to why their business is and will continue to mull. Dont believe me? Check their stock. Its really ironic since papa johns ALREADY provides its employees with health insurance after theyve been there over 90 days, so obamacare doesnt even apply to them anyway. I make no promises as to Obama being reelected = we’ll all be better off. I do promise that regardless of who is elected, if congress gets off their big asses and works with them instead of just saying no and offering no alternatives, we will all be better off.

      People, it is simply supply side economics! You spend more than you have coming in!!! By the way, anyone know the last time the Democatic Controlled Senate passed a budget? I do………. If the best the Democrats can do is Obama, Biden, Pelosi, Reed, and Wasserman (all blatant liars) how can anyone critize Reagan, Bush, Bush, and Romney. People get your head togther and look at reality and the facts. Not socialist democratic rhetroic and nonsense.

      • wsm

        I meant you spend NO more than the money you have coming in!

      • Dale

        Did you really just ask how can anyone criticize reagan, Bush, Bush, and Romney? There have been award winning books, songs, and films doing just that. Where the hell were you from 2000-2008

      • michael Murray

        Easy Bush is an abomination and war crimminal lied about the wars he wanted and why he wanted them. Thank god I know the differance between just a fool and a traitor.

        • Dan

          and Obama continued the war in Iraq for 3 years, said on day one of presidency, gitmo would be closed, escalated the war in afghanistan……is he the fool or the traitor you talk of?

  • fasttony46

    I doubt he wins because the mobilization to get people to the polls is incredible. They are trying their best to “BUY” the election right out from underneath the American people! Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are bad for this country for many reasons! My main complaint is they are not for the “POOR or MIDDLE CLASS”. They have their own agenda, and believe it to be true. They are going to destroy Medicare and Medicaid! We are the many and they chose only the few! Congress is also to blame for Obama not getting anything done! The President is dealing with a bunch of “Old Backwards and Bigoted” Men with a hatred for minorites,women and any other agenda that,Threatens the very core of what they believe is right. America is no longer white! It is now a majority or minorities! We as Americans, must stand up to this attack on our very freedom to vote. They are trying to suppress the vote in Florida,Pennsylvania,Ohio, just to name a few! Black people turn-out is being challenged as well. Now you must come up with more than just a voters registration card. This election is not about color! It is about a way of life that Romney and Ryan have promised to keep for the millionares and billionares! ” Promises the little people everything,yet deliver nothing”! If they get elected, Joe Biden, is right they will put the chains back on Us! I am not rich, I live on a fixed income, I am disabled, I am … The Real America!!! We barely survive the Bush era, Now they want to go back to it!

    • chuck west

      50% of the adult US population pays NO income tax. Is that fair?

      • michael Murray

        Not sure where you get you’r info but it is wrong what is true is 50% pay less than the most. Like Romney pays 16.3% check and see what the average family pays. Then get mad.

        • Dan

          yep Michael he is wrong, 48% pay NO federal income tax. Zero. Romney pays 16.3% as you say on 300 million dollars of INVESTMENT income. (money he has EARNED, and paid taxes on in the past, and invested and recieved additional gains)That paultry 16.3% results in a tax contribution of 49 MILLION dollars. you will not pay a 1000th of that single year contribution in your lifetime, yet HE does’nt pay enough. BTW the fed gov’t spent that in the time it took you to read the first sentence, and would have spent all his earnings if they taxed him at 100% before you read this post. Is the problem the rich don’t pay enough, or the gov has expanded to a point of unsustainable spending?

If you are happy with the things are then go to another country and enjoy. gets get thing better

    • michael Murray

      I guess you prefer the traitor Bush and the killing of children and of the economy. You see it is hie personal war in Iraq that we are paying for. The economy gone to sh#$#t because of that and all of the illegal trash that come to this country and takes jobs yes jobs their are jobs just not for us or U.S. they pay no medical bills no taxes no welfare but they all recieve food stamps welfare free healthcare free free free if you have no legal right to be here. Look into Mexico’s immigration laws.

    We can only hope Obama looses, Obama wins we loose america, usa to become USSA. socialism for all american dream will be dead, taxes will be through the roof for those working and government insurance will be great until you get sick….then if you over 65 and not work sorry better find a hospice…. for all you Obama supports I hope you get what you want and don’t bitch about when you get it….

    • Jerry

      It’s “lose”, you sound like an idiot… Not because of your grammatical error either.

  • Sisi

    It is amazing how everything becomes the incumbents fault come re-election time and American’s forget the amount of debt, economic depression, job losses, and high foreclosure rates President Obama inherited from the Bush administration. Please remember, George W. Bush was in office for 8…. count them 8 years. The economic decline happened during HIS (Bush’s) administration, not President Obama’s.

    • Dan

      What was the average unemployment rate for those 8…count em 8 years of the worst president you talk of, GW? What was it whe Obama took office? What did this president warn us it would SOAR to if he did’nt pass the TRILLION dollar stimulus package? (hint 8%)…WITH his stimulus it went above 10 and has never been below 8%. He knows nothing about economics of a country, other than it’s everyone elses fault.

  • D

    The survival of this country depends on defeating Obama!

    • michael Murray

      Are you as stupid as you sound? I guess you still think that war is a good thing. That killing children and watching our kids come home with no legs, arms. Are you aware that the economy was in the tank before Obama took office. do I agree with everthing that Obama wants to do? NO. But I care for my children and their future. Romney/Ryan will end all hope for future generations to retire. They will work on the day of their death.They will NOT be cared for if sick or poor. Don’t work don’t eat. don’t work live on the street no help no healthcare no ss NO NO NO nothing.

      • Rene A

        What do you base your idiotic claim that two people you obviously know nothing about will “end all hope for future generations to retire”? Have you ignored the glaring fact that the left have made so many exception and allowed so many people to belly up to the social security and entitlement trough that the social security trough is loaded with nothing but IOUs since the Clinton Administration and that it and Medicade WILL fail unless a fix can be found? At least these two candidate have ideas on how to make them solvent again, not just more of the blame it on the rich that the incompetent in chief has been using since taking office.

  • tommy

    The only people in this damned country that are making money are the ones getting the money from the government on welfare. For christ’s sake cant anybody realize that a thorough background check should be in order for these welfare check receivers. All they do is go out and spend OUR hard earned money on drugs, jewels and themselves instead of thinking of their families. God help us if obuma gets re-elected…

    • joseph

      you should be ashamed of your self for stereo typing a people like that. Are you aware that whites are the majority welfare recipients? Racism will never die, so sad to see in 2012.

      • huh?

        I’m not sure I read anywhere in the original post where the poster references a specific race, color or religion. How exactly is that stereotyping? Maybe you still see racism in 2012 because you want to see it, even when it’s not necessarily there…

        • mrmike

          If it’s true that whites make up more of the welfare roll it’s because whites are a much higher % of the total population. Try finding out what percent of all blacks are on welfare compared to the total percent of all whites. You’ll learn that blacks make up a much higher % of welfare recipients than whites in total. And let’s not even go to what percent of blacks make up prison population. You need to do your math before opening your yap !

          • Travis

            The problem is entitlement. Many…not all…who rely on government benefits have no reason to better themselves. If I make $50k per year, I see about $30k of it. If someone in my situation makes $20k, they don’t pay taxes and get $7k to $10k from the government in returns. Under this current system you have to make over $100k per year to break out. Those jobs are hard to come by so why try? They are fantastic programs for the people that truly need them, however, there needs to be accountability and a motivation to better yourself and become self reliant. Under Obama I see more and more people giving up and looking to the government to take care of them.

          • http://yahoo Doug

            You took the words right out of my mouth. I could not have said it better myself. There really does need to be some type of regulation on these people getting welfare. I was behind a lady at wal-mart the other day using her ebt card for food. I walked out behind her and watched her get into a $50,000.00 Mercedes. Im not going to state her race bc all of the liberal democrats will have a fit.

      • carl

        where did you get that statistic from? I love how people like to twist statistical information into any mold they prefer. You are correct however, there are more white people on welfare…because the white population is larger. Its a issue of percentages…and the percentage that really matters….a larger percentage of blacks are the receipents of welfare than whites. But i guess you thought every one who disproves of the innner city populations way of life is a stupid redneck. Also as a side note….Tommy never meantioned race…he never said the word black…white…yellow…purple…you sir brought race into the issue…so it is because of people like you… that “racism will never die” so so sad

      • Kris

        Majority of people on welfare are white huh. I guess that menas there are more whites than blacks right? You cant make number say what helps your cause that isnt true.If there are 100 million whites people and 50 million black people it means a great percentage of blacks are on welfare. You might make a good politician!!!

    Americans just need to stop being ignorant and wake up out of stupidity. The problems the United States are having cannot be fixed over night or by a *magic wand* something the American people believe every president has or have it will take smart leadership and someone that understand what the average low class and middle class has to go through to survive in this rough economy to fix the problem which will take years to fix. If the U.S government start minding the own business and focus on its American people and fix our problem than trying to solve every foreign country problem before they solve the problem that we are enduring in the U.S now. The U.S government gives away billions of dollars to foreign a country that hates Americans. I believe the U.S government cares about more it foreign relations that its people that always has to foot the bill for their spending and pumping our money in other countries economy.

  • William

    So Sad to see so much HATRED in these comments. The issues that confront us are NOT race related…however RACE will play a part in many voters decisions. Some African American will vote for President Obama because he is African American. Some Caucasian voters will vote for Romney because he is white. Given the level of social media out there, we will never again pay attention to the real issues. Regardless of the outcome of the election, we are ALL Americans…let’s hate less…and have more understanding…

  • TJE

    What’s both amazing and sad at the same time is that the people of this great country have been conned into thinking there is a difference between a republican and a democrat. There isn’t. Both are out for control – they just approach it carefully from different ends of the spectrum. This is where you think you see a difference, but in the end, total control of the population is the goal. One day the frog in the pond may wake up, a fraction of an instant before it is boiled to death. If you are either a democrat or a republican, that frog is you. Know this or perish.

  • George Bundas

    W. Scott Miller,

    “Mr. Geithner told Mr. Obama that if even if an additional $100 billion were available, he still would not spend it on housing.” “Two days later, an important deadline passed quietly. The $700 billion bailout fund Congress had created in 2008 expired. The administration could no longer use the money to finance new programs even if it wanted to. It had left more than $300 billion unspent.” (“Cautious moves on Foreclosures Haunting Obama”, by Binyamin Appelbaum, August 19, 2012, The New York Times). The home construction industry began to fail in the Bush administration and is failing in the Obama administration. My questions are: Why isn’t the free market working to fix this industry? How long do we have to wait for the free market to fix this industry? In this global economy more than 200 million people are looking for a job. What chance has our labor force to compete and to win internationally in this global war for jobs? “When Barack Obama joined Silicon Valley’s top luminaries for dinner in California last February, each guest was asked to come with a question for the president. But as Steven P. Jobs of Apple spoke, President Obama interrupted with an inquiry of his own: what would it take to make iPhones in the United States? Why can’t that work come home? Mr. Obama asked.” (“How the U.S. Lost Out on iPhone Work”, by Charles Duhigg and Keith Bradsher, January 21, 2012, The New York Times). We know: Apple is manufacturing their products in China. When Apple is selling their products, for each phone sold minimum $200 goes to China’s economy in labor, materials and production logistics. When Apple will have sold one billion phones the economic impact in China’s economy will be minimum $200 billion. How many international corporations like Apple are manufacturing their products in China: 100? 500? 1,000? Based on statistics, Western countries who have free market ideology are in trouble. Foreign countries who don’t have free market ideology are just fine. Why? What is the problem? What is missing in Western countries: Infrastructure? Education? Logistics? Using socialist methods the Obama administration bailed out GM. That was a mistake? GM had a chance to stand up if the Obama administration would not bail them out?

    This is a really scary story. We just go back to people buying the presidency which means that the rich will continue to get richer and the poor will continue to get poorer.

    What i can’t believe is that it is those very people that will suffer the most that will vote for Republicans just because they are against abortion. Soon all the mothers will be dead so why even worry about fetuses? Get a clue!!!!!!

      THANK YOU VERY MUCH for your intelligent reply. These idiots block their ears when they hear that: “Whatever OBAMA is for, we are against”. Nobody could get anything done with a party that will throw the entire country “under the bus”, just to make sure Obama is a “one term president.”

      Do not start blaming Obama for the economy. He has a jobs plan, but you fools refused to vote for TEACHERS, and construction workers to fix the crumbling bridges and roads filled with pot-holes. Nope, lets just drive on unsafe roads until we get him out.

People are where they are in their life based on the decisions they make.

      I believe that the “rich” worked hard for their money and should keep it. Also, it is because of someone who made sacrifices and decided to start a business and now happens to be rich, but has provided a job for me and over 100,000 other people. So tell me why should this man pay more of his own money (his fair share you call it)..when he is the one creating jobs and Obama has created none?

          ROMNEY with his opinion on NOTHING. He refuses to talk about ANYTHING at all…his Budget is off limits, abortion, his TAX RETURNS, his FAITH, (remember how you picked on Reverend Wright?)his lies about the VOUCHER PROGRAM, that will happen.

          The guy went on a foreign trip and managed to alienate every country he set foot in. RYAN and ROMNEY have ZERO foreign policy experience combined.

          ANY WOMAN that votes for the GOP does not care about her own body and what they plan to do with it.

          Woman will be spitting out a classroom full of kids in their lifetime, since birth control will be outlawed.

          Sorry, but they have a whole nation of angry woman, voting OBAMA. The polls show that WOMAN are clearly voting DEMOCRAT thanks to ATKINS. He blurted out what the whole party stands for. I do not get why they are distancing themselves from exactly what they stand for.

          • Teneka

            I am a woman and I am proudly voting for Romney. Here is why…
            Obama believes that more government is the answer to all of our problems. However, more government is not the answer. What makes America so great is the FREEDOM we have. Obama wants the people of America to be dependent on the government, so that he can have all of the power of us.

            Romney is for less government. He is not perfect, but his policies line up more with what our founding fathers and our military fought/fight for and that is FREEDOM.

            Please don’t loose sight of what makes America great by the freebies and entitlements Obama promises.

          • Mike

            Wow… Ok, one step at a time. The thing I find odd is that a Republican has to turn over everything about their life for the past whatever, yet with President Obama, we know next to nothing. We know he went to college, but not how good of a student he was. Remember, I do believe it was his first act to make sure his school records were sealed.

            And then to foreign policy. To this I have just one question. How much foriegn policy experience did President Obama have when he took office? All I can remember is a world tour proclaiming that everything would be fixed if he was elected. And let’s not forget the bowing to other foreign leaders after he was sworn in as the President. Those that have alot of foreign policy experience belong more in a Cabinet post in my opinion.

            As for any woman who votes Republician does not care about their body, since when is it such a crime for a woman to be able to choose what to do with their body (or a man for that matter)? When the whole birth control thing took off, I heard more Republicians saying that people should be allowed the choice. If your healthcare doesn’t cover birth control, there is nothing stopping you from switching jobs or getting it yourself from someplace like Planned Parenthood. (And to cut you off of the “well, they want to cut government funding to them…” argument, Planned Parenthood has stated that only @1-2% of their budget comes from the government…)

            And the validity of polls reminds me of statistics. You can take what you want from them to tell the story that you want to. I know women (both Democrat and Republician) who are NOT going to vote for President Obama. So are they racist, sexist, or whatever ist you want just cause they disagree with you? Personally, I am an Unaffiliated voter, not a Republician, and I listen to both sides to make sure I have both sides of the argument before I make a decision.

            I choose to be an informed voter, not a sheep that listens only to one side, and keeps repeating the same old party lines. From either side. I know that the current administration has spent tons of money and I am no better off. I have more regulations to deal with, and may be losing my employer provided healthcare because of the new law. I am seeing things go downhill, and from what the President is saying, there is no end in sight…

      • Kristine

        I SURE HOPE SO…..with all this VOTER SUPPRESSION, now in Ohio and spreading fast, PLUS, the Governor of Pennsylvania saying: “DONE, to voter suppression so ROMNEY WINS”, it is hard to think that there is any chance we can fix all of that before November 6th.

          Doug that surplus you talk about was done with a Republican congress. How much money has this dummy spent in 4 years? Get your facts right.

        • rubtherightway

          We didn’tstart the war and there was only one.

        • DG

          Clinton didn’t do crap you fool. the congress was majority wise republican and the president doesn’t make the budget congress does twitface lol how can you not know that? LOL nevermind im sure it isn’t hard for you being a democrat to have your head stuck in a hole in the ground.

            DG….I am so glad you can put people in there place. Please People………….I mean “DEMOCRATS” Are you really that dumb? Can’t you see what OBAMA has done with this country? Talking about CIVIL WAR? LOL November 7th will be CIVIL WAR if OBAMA gets in not ROMNEY getting in. Have you ever passed the Constitution test? Do you remember the U.S. Constitution? I am a teacher I know the Constitution. This man has this country in such a mess we will never get out of debt. China owns us now. Do you know your facts about where Obama received his money? Or do you mind letting China take over our country? When asked about who I am voting for: I say: “THE AMERICAN” The only thing I can say thar the republicans are blamed for is not finding OBAMA’S birth certificate before the first primary! I use to go back & forth on the ballot. But, after seeing what OBAMA has done to our country, I’m STRAIGHT OUT REBUBLICAN from now on,think about how it use to be. Oh yes, it’s still BUSH’S fault right Democrats? Aren’t you still blaming Bush? He came in office at the wrong time. If Obama had been in office would he have done things different? The 9/11 was something terrible that happened in our country but, no it’s Bush’s fault, right? Democrats? You all are so RADICAL. You can tell by the way you talk. You are all the same! I keep thinking you all will wake up & see what Obama has done. Guess not…

    • Harsh Times

      Didn’t you read that they have predicted the winer correctly since 1980? That would include 3 Democrat winners as well. Read, try to understand and then post. If you can’t do the either of the first two – don’t post.

    • Kristine

      Anyone that votes Republican that makes under $100,000.00 a year, will see their lives take a turn for the worst.

      It is right in your faces. Republicans think that anyone making under a million is poor. If you are not in the top 1%, and you vote for Romney, you must be a racist.
      Knowing your healthcare will go down the toilet, your SS will turn into vouchers, your kids in COLLEGE will be booted off your health insurance, and you need a PELL GRANT for college, (that will go bye-bye)”meals on wheels” for seniors, GONE, reduced breakfast programs for economically challenged families, GONE!

      Knowing all of that, and you still vote ROMNEY, you are a damn fool.

      Republicans think that ONLY black people get meals on wheels, reduced lunch programs, are on WELFARE and SSD, when in reality, there are more white people getting all of those services including WELFARE.

      Well, I have to go buy a horse, because we need the TAX DEDUCTION. LOL….

      • Brian

        Holy Crap.

        You are simply the best. As a Republican, I love when Democrats go off the deep end (much like yourself) and start shouting stupid things about Racism and how the GOP hates old people. I’m not in the top 1% and I’m not voting for Obama. Not because he’s black and I’m a racist… but because of all the other things you listed.

        How under Obamacare the quality and availability of healthcare will be compromised. Face it, you can compare it to the Euro system as much as you want (rightfully so) because many people in the UK warned the US about their system’s flaws. I’ll take my private insurance, thank you (at least while the govt lets me keep it)

        And all the other programs you offered…. (College, Social security, healthcare, reduced breakfast) How do you propose we pay for these things? Do we continue to go to Banco de China? If that’s your answer than I feel bad for the people who surround themselves with you, because you are most obviously living in a bubble and have little to no concept of reality. We need cuts. Deep cuts, or else things are going to get progressively worse.

        I’m going to go continue to be an ignorant, “damn fool” but before I go (because I know I’m going to be branded as stupid) because any other response you come up with will most likely revolve around an attack on me and not an answer to your own argument’s flaws.
        I am a top college educated, high school history teacher from a blue state. I’m not a tea party member or a far right christian conservative.

        I just have common sense… something you most obviously lack.

        • julian axworthy

          Tell the 50 million without health insurance that they are better off without coverage. Tell the people that go to the emergency room for urgent attention but have to wait for hours because somebody has no insurance and their kid has a sore throat. Tell my daughter that when she graduated college at 22 – she had no health insurance. Tell the people with pre existing conditions they won’t be covered. Finally tell my employer who pays $1660 for my insurance (United Healthcare, PPO, Family, NJ) and has seen a 400% increase in 15 years.

          • Teneka

            Why do you believe that the government should be involved with your healthcare?

            I know for sure that I want my healthcare to be between me and my doctor. Not the between the government, a doctor the government chooses for me, and a plan for my health that the government decides for me. Next thing you know the government is going to be mandating what I can/cannot eat, how much cardio I do daily, mandating how long I can spend outside in the sun… Not to mention that the quality of care will go down. The great thing about America is Freedom, the more we let the government in to “solve all of our problems” the less freedom we have. I just encourage you to think this through.

        • Sipzz Pourner

          Wow – you’re a high school HISTORY teacher?!? That’s sad…VERY sad. No wonder our students are so effed up and graduate so uneducated and UNDER-educated and then have trouble competing with foreign students in the job market. And if YOU’RE the standard of secondary school education TODAY, I can just IMAGINE what it’s going to be like a FEW YEARS down the line.

          Time to HIT THE BOOKS, my friend! :-)

          • Brian

            Like I said, your response was strictly an attack on me and has no foundation in fact. Saying that I’m the problem with America’s education system and that we’re in trouble does nothing to advance your point, it does however advance mine.

            And as an aside, perhaps one of the biggest problems with American education is that some students who are unwilling to admit they are wrong just put their fingers in their ears and shout “LALALALALAA YOU’RE WRONG! YOU’RE STUPID! LALALALALA” Which is pretty much what you did.

  • Enough

    Just for a moment, step back and think about the comment “rich pubs”. Why is there a perception that all Republicans are rich, or that if you’re rich you’re a Republican?

    Does anyone remember the 2008 DNC? The amount of A List Hollywood celebrities that came out and donated to and supported Obama? You want to talk about rich? Here’s a partial list of the who’s who of Hollywood that were at the 2008 DNC and are firmly in the Democratic party:

    Oprah Winfrey, Sarah Silverman, Fallout Boy, John Legend, Cyndi Lauper, Ashanti, Fran Drescher, Ashley Judd, Rage Against the Machine, Aisha Tyler, Anne Hathaway, Susan Sarandon, Jon Hamm, Cash Warren, Jessica Alba, Fergie, Will.i.am, Kanye West, Matthew Modine, Kerry Washington, Stevie Wonder, Rosario Dawson, Jennifer Hudson, Shawn Johnson, Forest Whitaker, Star Jones, Wilmer Valderama, Daniel Dae Kim, Kelly Hu, Jamie Foxx, Ben Affleck, Jennifer Garner, Chevy Chase, Richard Dreyfuss, Melissa Etheridge and Pharrell Williams.

    How many hundreds of millions of dollars of net worth do you see in that list? I can’t even guess, but any one of these has more money today than I will ever earn in my life.

    It isn’t about the size of people’s bank accounts. It’s about those of us that started with nothing and get up and go to work each day and what we think is important.

    Instead of instantly hating and categorizing anyone that is not 100% in agreement with the Obama party line as a “rich pub”, why don’t you try to find out who the other 50% of America really is and why we disagree with you.

    • Terry

    If you read about SKULL & BONES, you know that VOTING has always been pre-determined. That is how BUSH won a second term. Gore really won, but the whole “hanging chad”, Florida voting mess was why he won.

    This year, I am sure ROMNEY will win because of the voter suppression going on. Why else would they need to do that?

    Plus, RYAN & ROMNEY are so cocky getting away with telling the media that they refuse to answer ANY questions about: Their budget, Romneys tax returns, the MORMON church, abortion….you know, they do not want any “ammunition”.

Romney is loosing ground in all the swing states and unless Obama has a major blunder in his campaign he will be re-elected easily.

      Using electoral vote tracking polls I have picked the winner of every election since 1980 correctly. When you count the media recounts of 2001 which showed gore won.

  • c boone

    anyone who is voting for Romney should carefully consider his use of tax shelters. On an income, last year, of about 20 million dollars, he appears to have sheltered as much money as possible. You and I, who are probably paying around 18% in income tax probably can’t shelter our earnings — we’re too poor. Mitt winds up paying 13%. If I were to start a campaign for president, one of the first things I would do would be pay as much as possible in taxes for at least 4 years. If I earned 20 million, I certainly don’t have to worry about going bankrupt paying taxes. This is a job that after he leaves office will make him much richer — thanks to the American tax payer. Putting his money in off-shore accounts is just too stupid.

    loyal American tax payer

    • wayman simpson

      c boone, I’m pretty sure Mitt uses a good accounting firm to do his taxes and only takes legal deductions. Should loop holes be closed? Certainly, but you can’t blame him for using the ones that are available. And when you consider about 50% of all working Americans currently pay 0%, that’s ZERO percent federal income taxes, the millions he pays is significant. I’d rather have a leader that has come idea how a capitalistic economy works, rather this Marxist we have now.

    • http://none princelaife

      Mitt Romney is a rich man already. He does not need your approval for his financial standing. What you need if you are an American is to make up your mind what you need in life. Because if you stand there all your life and tear down people who tries to make life better for you. You will ended up in your coffin with nothing to your life credits but bitterness toward good people like Mitt or Obama for that matter. Sorry for you guy.

    • John

      It is absurd of people to consider that sheltering money from the Government is not a practice EACH and EVERY person does out there when you have big money and if YOU HAD IT YOU WOULD DO IT TOO!!!! How can you call someone out for trying to hide money from a Government system that is broken and corrupt and digs at the pocketbooks of every working NON-Welfare American. Look at all the money that the Middle-Class has to put up to try and SHELTER their money from the IRS/Government by hiring a TAX PROFESSIONAL to make sure they get BACK as much money as they can because they don’t want to pay more and are trying to simply get their TAX RATE down to as low as possible.

      MITT ROMNEY did the same thing… and he agrees that the GOVERNMENT has their hands in too much of the AMERICAN ECONOMY and it needs to be returned to the people, translating into LOWER TAXES for EVERYONE because the Government is not going to SPEND as much.

      This is such a basic concept, slim government and allow the citizen to advance. Allowing the Citizen to Advance is simply going to bring more money into the Government. Then we pay down our debt and become the Economic Superpower all of our forefathers had worked hard for in their lives.

      Get a grip people, vote for the guy that WANTS to make America the shining STAR of the world, NOT for the guy that wants to bring us DOWN to be amongst the AVERAGE of the WORLD.

      You can believe that the US has imperialized itself around the world. But the facts are that AMERICA has had hard working people with a Dream of success, with a drive to be the BEST in the world. And we developed and created some of the most AMAZING products and services that have REVOLUTIONIZED the entire WORLD.

      We need to get back to having that Drive and That VISION for our Country. Learn your facts about OBAMA. His VISION is probably way beyond what your vision is and you have to consider the Future of our kids and what they are going to have to pay for.

          So … do you have a list of people you are going to vote for that you can prove have not used any loopholes or tax breaks? I’m real curious to know who, among any group of politicians have not used the legal tax code to the limit to avoid overpaying. The people with “all that money” didn’t pay to to make those holes as you assert, they voted on the House and Senate floors to make those holes. Obama is running his campaign on money given to him by some of the richest people in the world, and yes they use all those loopholes too. Don’t throw stones if you live in a glass house.

    • Ben

      First off you’re comparing apples and oranges. You assume you and I are paying 18%, we might be but that is on income. Romney’s income comes from investments so he pays capital gains tax not income tax. You take a risk on investments thus the lower tax rates. Secondly, he is not breaking any laws/regulations. If I were him and running for President I would be doing the same thing. This is America. We operate in a capitalistic society (not for long if Obama is re-elected) he is playing by the rules in place, fair or not. You don’t like the rules…pay closer attention to your Congressional races, they are the one’s making them.

    • Robert in Canada

      I can’t see what a person’s tax return (that was legally filed and properly paid) has to do with his ability to run a country, lead the free world, and re-build the US economy.

      The US and the free world needs a USA that has a strong and growing economy. Otherwise, we will all have to learn to speak Mandarin and follow orders from Beijing.

      yes people you want America back and strong vote for Romney Obama don’t care about american people hes already proven that!!!!!!!!

        What slavery? You are a jerk for throwing names like that around. Have you ever been a slave AH?

    • keith

      Read some history, slavery ended in 1865, 147 years ago this past June, at the hand of a Republican President. Time to throw that tired old ‘slavery’ mantra away. No one alive today was ever a slave or owned slaves. But, if you are instead trying to say we are slaves of evil corporate America, I beg to differ. Evil ol’ Corporate America and free enterprise has employed me, legally for the past 32 years. That legal employment, not indentured servitude, has allowed me to buy a home, pay my bills, raise two kids, feed and educate those two kids, and live to “pursue happiness” … and all I had to do was show up, on time, ready to work for the dollar I was earning. No slave here bro.

    Anybody here ever work under the table? Getting paid cash? In a way that is sheltering your money. I bet you didn’t just run over to H&R Block and tell them about the money you made on the side. My point is, it is his money, and his tax advisors introduced to him a way to keep his money. I am not concerned about what he does with his money, I want the 50% of the american people who pay NO taxes to put money into the pot like the rest of us. I am tired of our money being given away to illegals and other countries, it is not our responsibilty to help them, you can be damn sure if we go belly up there will not be anyone there to give us a free ride.

    Robert i cant believe you are an AMERICAN, or i think we know you are just a kool-aid drinking plant saying lose what you have earned. And what give it to people, or the government who did not. Since when was it my responsibility to pay half of my income to those who pay none because they wont get off their collective , and i use the term wisely, asses. My money is not your money. Romney’s income, no matter who decided the law and it wasn’t him, has blinded you to the real facts. What you think Obama REALLY cares about you. If so, why is he making so many mistakes. I mean really who elects a president with so few qualifications. It’s obvious you are a plant. No one is this ignorant!

      your money is your money but if your rich and you pay taxes in this country your going to pay more anyway do the math, you kook aid drinkers of mitt dont here facts all you want is obana out well i have news for you this poll is going to be wrong i predicted obama to win in 08 against all odds and i predict it again, and dont count out asians, woman, hispanic votes , this country is not white and black dont forget so whoever does this stupid poll is wrong dont get all hyped for a let down

  • http://bluegoldmedia.com John

    Is anybody really paying attention to what is going on? Mitt Romney won’t release his taxes, won’t say who his bundlers are, won’t tell us why he has a Swiss bank account, why he uses tax shelters, wants to enrich the wealthy more and does not care about the middle class. Who is Mitt Romney listening to? All these billions his friends are spending on his behalf…what is he promising them once he gets in the White House? It always amazes me that rational human beings can be persuaded to vote against their interest, just because of some minor issues like the way a person looks…If you think George W. Bush was bad for this country and you want to vote for Romney, go ahead, you will get Bush on steroids….more wars, lies, death, deficit and further destruction of the middle class.

    • Susan

      i beg to differ, the alternative to Romney is much, much worse….

    • Amh01

      Have you not paid attention to ANY election info? Romey has released at leasr 2 years of tax info which is more than any other canidadate has ever had to release. Why does he have to release all of his when he just released more than required…where are obamas? Oh I guess that doesnt matter because thats who your voting for. Why are romneys the only ones that matter? Many of obamas cabinet members like the sec of treasury have not paid taxes at all. Please educate yourself. If you go to google and look up campaign donors there is a wonderful website with both sides donors. You will then educate yourself that obama gets lots of money from lobyists as well and would also see obama gets way more money donated than anybody else so is bought and paid for more than anyother canadiate..please dont vote unless you educate yourself you like obamas policies fine but everything you just posted obama is equally guilty for. More than half obamas administration has also been found to have over seas accounts and you know why? Because its legal and our country has been ran so far into the ground NOBODY wants to invest here.

    • Martha

      John, you are repeating the liberal rhetoric and frankly most of us are sick of it. Demonizing Romney is the cheap trick from democrats, because they can’t find any dirt on Romney.

    If Mitt wins everyone who voted for him will have their mouths stuck out complaining about everything under the sun. I love how everyone is upset of Obamacare but it was based off of Romenycare. Boy, Americans have a lot to learn. It pays to do your homework…

    • Martha

      Sophia, we are aware of how Obamacare originated, and frankly don’t care. If Obamacare was the only bad policy Obama passed and realized it was a mistake, as Romney did with his Healthcare, maybe he would have a chance. But he is done, there is nothing he has done for the benefit of our country. He is a destroyer and must be defeated. Romney/Ryan 2012!

  • brooke burbach

    Mitt Romney is the only man that can give America back to the people. I have confidence he will fix the economy, jobs, education and the respect we no longer have in the world.

  • msr

    Romney promise 12 million new job, I dont think he really mean to 12 million American job! He definitely can help create few millions job in China and one more think he can help some rich people to hide their mony in Caymon islsnd like he did. By the way Romney love America so much that he does not like to pay any tax and off course he will flip flop on his views and false promises !

    • keith

      Show me where Romney has not paid any taxes. More to the point … you would rather trust a complete, total incompetent, who has promised us everything under the sun and has yet to deliver anything in four years!?! I guess you would like to see where this little experiment in socialism takes us. I for one will vote for Romney/Ryan. They have a clear track record of actually understanding economics and how to grow businesses/prosperity, unlike the current “community organizer” clown in office. Community organizer, wow I bet that impresses on a resume’, but then he’s never really needed a resume’, since he has never held a real job!
      Have his promises gotten you anywhere, other than (judging by your English) across of the border?

      • Zac

        You silly sheep. Romney and Ryan are no different from Obama and Biden. Democrats and Republicans are the same scum. Open your eyes and mind to realize that Romney and Ryan, if they even win, will be more of the same thing, keeping the status quo in place.

    • http://yahoo.com kathy

      If Romney hid his money in the cayman Islands, how is it that you know about it. Who are we to tell anyone where they can put their money. If I want to take my money out of the bank and bury it in my back yard that would be my business wouldn’t it.

  • Jack LV

    This election is between incompetence and expertise, failure and success. Bottom line is that my sales started to shrink in 2009 and I am now down to 50% less. And this guy, Obama, has done nothing to stop the fall. Nothing year 1, nothing year 2, nothing year 3 and nothing year 4. His “experience” hasn’t improved. He just repeated the 1st year 4 times. Therefore he needs to go. I will vote Romney. Anyone voting for Obama is suicidal or a fool. He couldn’t do a thing to fix “the mess he inherited” as per him, what make you think that he can fix the disaster he put us in? He doesn’t know. He is ignorant, with zero experience, and his beautiful words and smile are pathetic. Four more years will only put us further deep in the hole. Four more years of this incompetent and I will be out of business…. and so will you.

    • Jim Larsen Jr.

      My job could not be better as a matter of fact everyone I know is doing better than four years ago. Four years ago my job was in the toilet. It’s easy to blame someone else for your problems. Many would blame Obama for their foreclosures as well if they could while they continue buy things that they cannot afford. The fact of the matter is Obama did not have anything to do with your bad luck..

    • Martha

      Jack, I totally agree with you. The choice is very clear for those of us who care about our country and our descendants, and not stuck on party loyalty. Although not a democrat myself, if my candidate was a total failure asking for re-election, I would have no problem switching parties for the sake of my country. Unfortunately, some people vote for the wrong reasons: party, ideology, and even just skin color.

    Think of it this way,
    Every president we’ve had so far that’s been republican hasn’t done crap to help us out. All you republicians voted for Bush, and you think he helped at all!?!?!?!?! NO.

    He was the one who fucking got us in war to began with.
    And Obama care…….. That’s a good thing. It helps out children so they CAN BE on their parents health care until 26. Do you really want your kid to be out there with NO HEALTH CARE AT ALL?!?!
    I mean, they go in get in a car crash…. I guess you the parents would be paying a high ass doctor bill because all of you want Obama care gone.

    I truely believe that the American society is f***** up. Ohh mitt might have some ok things, but I’m just saying maybe you should THINK about both sides. Idc if your republican, maybe you should actually think before YOU are the one who VOTED for mitt…. And YOU will be the one homeless.

    got a chance to have four more years.Never mind the fact that he is a Democrat.that doesn’t mean he is smart enough to know how to fix anything.he has already proven that by making a bad mess even worse.

    I wholeheartedly hope the predictive ability of this model is robust. Romney-Ryan 2012! As an aside, I find it rather comical that the the Democratic Party – the “party for women” – inserted Slick Willy Clinton as a headline speaker at the DNC. This in spite of the fact that he is, without question, among the most infamous womanizers of our time. Is it just me or does something not add up here?

      Please convince me why MY tax dollars should pay for your birth control and abortions. Let me illustrate my point. I enjoy rattlesnake hunting so, according to your line of reasoning, you are responsible for helping me to buy a pair of snake-proof boots to prevent my being poisoned when I carelessly step on a rattlesnake. In the case the boots don’t work, you are responsible to help pay for the anti-venom and hospital procedure. Your part of the bill for the boots and procedure is $100. After all I have a right to hunt rattlesnakes don’t I? Please send me a check. If you refuse to do so I will label you a “snake hunter-hater” and deem your actions a “war on snake hunters.” DO YOU GET IT? I would never in a million years expect you to help pay for my boots. Also, my recommendation to you (and DNC speaker Sandra Fluke) for birth control is an aspirin – hold it between your knees.

      • karen carpenter

        Who cares….. are you creating jobs mr. Republican. Let god deal with sins and take a back seat. Why would a republican need help paying for anything? Republicans think they are god and have more money than god.

    • RockyMtHi

      What a huge LIE and DISTORTION that women would lose their reproductive rights under a Republican President. Roe v. Wade secured every woman the right to an abortion nationwide. The only way that could change is through the Supreme Court, and the only way that could happen is if attorneys (not presidents) present a legal argument worthy of being heard to overturn the previous Supreme Court decision, which was based on the Constitutional Right to Privacy, not the right to an abortion. Now, do you think any Conservative President will lead a group of attorneys to legally challenge an American’s Right to Privacy??? I don’t think so. And every GOP President since then, has not even tried, including the most Pro-Life of all, George W. Bush. So relax ladies, Romney isn’t going to try either. Believe me, he’s got better things to do.

      What the GOP objects to, is having to use tax payer $$$ to pay for it. If you want to have an abortion, do so, but don’t expect me to pay for it.

      • karen carpenter

        Oh hell you republicans can pay for it, label it as charity, write it off on your taxes (oh wait you dont pay any) and concentrate on creating jobs. Maybe you can donate a little of that money to foster careprograms.

        • Boa12

          Your comments are devoid of substance and sense.

    • Sheila

      Yep, that’s what the democrats would like you to believe. The truth is that Romney is pro-choice, he just doesn’t feel that government should be paying for said abortions. He’s not making them illegal, he just thinks that places like planned parenthood should not recieve government assistance. They can carry on through private donations and fundraising like so many other non profit organizations. On the other hand, you can have a president who favors 2nd and 3rd term abortions, as late as for a third term (ie:full term) baby coming out the birth canal. At some point, it’s just plain murder.

    You gotta see Obama 2016.

    • Whitewalls

      The only people that have seen “2016″ are those who want their decision to hate Obama is reinforced. If you believe that Denish D’Souza is an unbiased journalist you may want to spend some time reading his bio and journalist history. The movie is littered with false accusations about the president and administration. Also take some time to read the reviews and how blatantly false his story truly is. Isn’t it curious to you as a viewer of the film why there have been so few appearances of D’Souza on talk shows, even Fox News. He has been so highly discredited for the complete untruths he has littered throughout this film. At least when Michael Moore makes a movie it is recognized as “legitimate”. You can say it’s because of the ‘liberal media” but just look for reviews from conservative’s they also question D’Souzas lacks any attention to the truth.

  • lynne

    What is wrong with some people. If you want to lay around on your lazy butts all day and have the government, ie. you and me, pay for you, stay with Obama. Otherwise, realize the only way to return to your previous lifestyle, and perhaps keep part of YOUR paycheck, get rid of him NOW! And I don’t believe we will return to coat hangers.

    • karen carpenter

      Or we could just bail out banks over and over again…

  • Rick

    While I find the predictive analysis interesting, I’m not convinced that Mitt Romney will win. Our society is really changing, some of it good and some not so good. I think that both men are good people just with different agendas. I don’t believe that Obama is out to destroy American nor do I believe Romney is out to destroy the middle-class. People seem to think the President has the final decision on everything so we should blame everything on him. Even if Romney wins, things will not change overnight. It still is going to be years before we see a true economic recovery. People need to decide if they are going to cry about what has happen or figure out a way to stand on their on feet and move forward whoever wins. I’m pretty sure those who are unemployed the day of the election will be unemployed the day after. There is no magic stick to fix this mess. Both parties are to blame. As far as the health care issue, what person doesn’t want to have an easier way to take care of there medical needs? I think most people have no clue what its like to have a insurance company deny you care because the treatment is too expensive. Everyone deserves proper health care regardless of there economic status. We pay enough taxes in this country, we just need to make sure we are holding our officials more accountable how they utilize our money.
    Ultimately, I believe our country is going to vote for the person who has a vision that is very clear for the middle class in this country. Hopefully, the results of the up coming debates will tell us who that really is going to be.

        I agree. Go see 2016. I am a conservative and saw it and really liked it. I didn’t find it to be a ‘scare’ movie at all. I actually like Obama better now as a person, but it solidified for me that his dream is not the American dream. The purpose of the US constitution was to limit the amount of government in our lives. That is NOT what Obama stands for. I also fact checked the movie afterwards and found four items, that while not incorrect, were subjective. But the movie was well done.

      • Whitewalls

        The only people that have seen “2016” are those who want their decision to hate Obama is reinforced. If you believe that Denish D’Souza is an unbiased journalist you may want to spend some time reading his bio and journalist history. The movie is littered with false accusations about the president and administration. Also take some time to read the reviews and how blatantly false his story truly is. Isn’t it curious to you as a viewer of the film why there have been so few appearances of D’Souza on talk shows, even Fox News. He has been so highly discredited for the complete untruths he has littered throughout this film. At least when Michael Moore makes a movie it is recognized as “legitimate”. You can say it’s because of the ‘liberal media” but just look for reviews from conservative’s they also question D’Souzas lacks any attention to the truth.

      • Zack

        Telling someone to watch 2016, in a situation like this, is like me suggesting you watch Fahrenheit 9/11 and claiming it as an unbiased piece of media using nothing but facts and highly trusted sources. It is biased. Both are biased. It’s like listening to Glenn Beck and Limbaugh, daily, and claiming to be simply an open-minded patriot, when in actuality the crossover audience of those two are nothing more than right-wing extremists themselves.

    • Allen

      Well said.

    • karen carpenter

      Democrats will appreciate your comments but republicans won’t. And you are abosolutely right about taking years to fix the mess that a republican made for us. Why didnt Bush speak for Romney? #1 he is too busy being rich and laughing at all the ignorant people that voted for him #2 he is an
      embarrassment to the nation and the republican party and you sure dont hear anybody talking about what a good president he was now do ya?

      • Ashly

        I liked bush and think he did a hell of a lot better job then the joke of Obama has done

      • james

        Karen, I wasn’t happy with everything President Bush did, but after 4 years of Obama, I sure miss him. You’ll see on election day a landslide win for Romney. Maybe you’ll question your blind support for Obama by then

  • Jim

    We can’t afford 4 more years of Obama. The man had never had a real job and it showed. He is incompetent and now he has to go to the old white guy,Clinton, to bail him out. Barack you are 3 years to late.

  • Allen

    This model is nonsense. It was created last year with backtested and optimized data. It has never actually predicted a single election. They could have come up with a model that was correct since 1980 and predicted Obama winning this year simply by choosing different variables. People have been using this same method to create and sell trading systems for years.

    • Boa12

      Care to enlighten us by suggesting any of the variables that might be included to predict an Obama win?

      • Allen

        I wish I could, but that’s what computers do well. But here’s one. Latest polls show Obama with a 5pt lead in Ohio. So chances of GOP losing Ohio and winning election. Pretty much zero.

        • Boa12

          As I presumed, you have no idea what you are speaking of regarding your reference to “choosing different variables”…empty words just like Obama. Oh, I was expecting you’d refer to the “hope and change” and “gimme more time” variables which if inserted in the study would definitely predict an Obama win. Also, please invest the time while concocting your comments to ensure they make sense (i.e., …”chances of GOP losing Ohio and winning election…). Obviously the time you invest in making your comments is akin to the amount of time you invest in studying and choosing which candidate to support. Finally, don’t be so content about the poll you mentioned. While I admit it is disheartening, it is merely a poll and by no means ensures an Obama victory. Your “anointed one” and company still have two months during which time they must continue to maintain their facade. That may not be a problem, however, given they’ve managed to pull it off for four years now. Please wake up man! You too I would encourage to see “2016”…however, even presented with the facts, I assume you would not consider changing your convictions about your hero Obama. That, my friend, is, without question, scariest and most alarming of all. Unless of course you are a socialist. Speaking of socialism, at what percentage of taxation do you begin to change your views (if you do)…50, 60, 75%? I’m curious.

        • james

          Allen, you are giving the election to Obama way too soon!! Romney will win big in November! Ohio included!

    Agree with yous,that Obama couldnt run a lemonade stand cause look what he did to America!!!!He wants USA.down the pipe to the sewer of communisium and dictatership.He is a Muslim and Freek!!!Think,,Think you Demic-rats while it is still FREE,because if that guy in Washington gets back in it wont be.If he wants to rent a LIMO on our tax dollar to go out and have Larry give him a BlowJob,,,He should be IMPEACHED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Chuck Royer

        Lets get the real truth and I mean the Truth that is really available on this banter between what President Bush did or didn’t do and what President Obama did or didn’t do. During President Bush’s terms the Democratic Party had the majority in both houses (8 years) and then had the majority when President Obama was elected (2 years until 2010 when the nation woke up to what was being “changed” to supposedly help the nation. The President does not hold all the power in this nation so long as the Constitution of the United States is upheld by all elected officials at the Federal level. No, it is the combination of all three of these areas – President, House of Representatives and the Senate that are involved in the issues we have come to. The majority parties during those ten years are what got us to where we are now – not just the Presidents themselves. They definitely contribute but the Democratically controlled years are still perpetuating, even more so under President Obama’s watch, policies that are moving us “fundamentally” away from the Consititutional driven answers along with proven guidelines that the Founding Fathers setup under that document. They knew that taxation overly used would burden and enslave the citizenry from having the resoursed necessary to enjoy Life, Liberty and Happiness. They knew that enslaving the citizenry with over regulations takes away from Liberty. And there are many more that could be mentioned. Yet, this is now the opposite cours being taken and even shoved onto the citizenry by Executive Order not through the halls of Congress. I believe that absolute truth does exist on how things should be and know it can be found and stood for even though others will speak with vile language, partial truth mixed with a majority of untruths, “fundamentally” begin to edge this nation away from the Republic that was fought for and prayed for by our Founding Fathers and Presidents like Abraham Lincoln. Just remember that 10 years of the last 12 the Democratic party has been the majority votes and now includes the President as well. Who really needs to take some accountability instead of blaming it all on one person?

      • james

        Wow Karen! You simply don’t know what your taking about! The blame Bush thing is so old and pathetic. I’m not saying he didn’t start it but what has Obama done? If you can get past the liberal hacks, you would see your guy has been a disaster! Obama has spent more money we don’t have in 4 years than all the previous presidents combined! Please stop with the blame bush game. It has NO traction anymore. I guess that makes me a racist now huh lol

    I admire Chuck Norris and he has ducks in a row,,Keep it up Chuck,we need some one with some sense!! Thanks

  • luca

    Obama gave the same speech at his convention 2008 as he did 2012 last week. His base was not smart enough to catch it. He didn’t even attempt to make a new speech. He realizes his base is too stupid to know the difference and he’s too lazy to practice another.. He didn’t perform his promises from 2008. He’s 4 yrs too late. Are the American people going to make the same mistake?

    • karen carpenter

      What did bush promise is a better question? The economy was in good shape until a republican made his oul buddies richer. You shouldnt even be able to vote republican unless you make over 250000 a year. That would eliminate wannabes like you from commenting. Wete you republicans proud of ole clints speech?

It makes no sense (Shrugs) There are several things Obama said he’d do that he did: End the war and bring our loved 1’s home on top of finding BinLaden just to name a couple Something the republicans wouldnt and couldnt do! 1 term is not enough for him to make a big change, Bush has us in too deep! Duhhh… 1 thing for certain & 2 for sure Is Obama is HighlyFavored & The Same God that appointed him first term will make sure he WINS this term ALSO! Let no man close the door that the Lord has opened and for that reason I can look at u Dumb Dumbs & Still 😉 :) SMILE while I shake my head at ur Stupidity, Because u dont know any better…There will be NORomney lol #OBAMA2012; YES WE CAN/ YES WE WILL / & YES WE DID ….HAHA:) #TEAMOBAMAS #ProudCitizen

      • Zack

        I think you are in need of some research, on this matter. The republicans were in full control of Congress (as majority) from 1994-2000, then for 2 years, one Republican (Sen. James Jeffords) declared himself as switching to the Independent Party and caucused with the Democrats, giving them a 1 head majority for only the Senate, and only until 2002. For the next 4 years Republicans, again, had full majority in both. It wasn’t until 2006, that the Democrats took majority in the House and Senate (largely because the voters were tired of the Republicans running the country into the ground) and since 2010, Republicans have had the House and Democrats have a slight advantage in the Senate.
        I do enjoy your confidence used to disguise your ignorance. Unfortunately, on the internet, you can’t make up facts and expect no one will check up on them. Any more fun stuff you want me to prove you wrong on?

    • Robert Musser

    • JG

      So, when can we expect Obama and his supporters to start taking responsibility for HIS 4-year term? Everytime I hear a Dem debate with a Repub… it’s always starts off with some reference to what GW Bush did or didn’t do. ENOUGH ALREADY! Obama-the anointed- came in nearly 4-years agon and he was going to fix all this. So, why is it when I do a search on this page I get about 12+ hits for Bush… and low-and-behold, all of those original comments come from Obama-backers?!?! Take some responsibility already for having done nothing but give more hand-outs and more money to people who will gladly accept the _continued_ hand-out!

      • Case

        You dumb asshole. It starts off like that after he’s accused of losing jobs or making debt within his first year. There are processes that have to be followed, you can’t just repeal bills or solve a problem overnight. We are now out of Iraq, we’ve brought down the man who brought down the twin towers, there are millions now who have access to health insurance that did not previously, and jobs are on the rise. We also never fell into a full scale depression. I’d say that’s more than ‘nothing but handouts and money to people who will gladly accept it.’ I’d also like to point out that the largest demographic of those who collect ‘government handouts’ are those residing in red states.

        For the record I stand to pay a lot more taxes under Obama, and I don’t really care. It’s my duty as a patriotic citizen to want to see our country do the best that it can. Romney has failed to mention a damn thing he’s going to do in detail. In fact he’s mentioned plenty of contradictory things he’d like to do, pandering to everyone he can whether he plans on pulling through or not. He’s a great business man, but a failure in terms of someone eligible for commander in chief.

    • Mattyice4893

      I’m sorry but you appear to be moronic. The political party has nothin to do with finding bin laden? Even if that is a valid argument, while Bush was in office sadam was found and captured alive. Also Obama did not bring are troops home, he just removed them from Iraq, and placed them into combat situations in Afghanistan instead.

        Nikkol….um ya…PARENTS should be teaching and being responsible child sitters rather than putting them in front of the TV simply because its easy and the TV then acts as the babysitter. PBS is not at all one bit hurting for funding. Big Bird is very well supported. Also….if you care that much about PBS then donate the 8$ a month! Moreover, Elmo is and has been the number one selling toy for infants, toddlers and children for YEARS!!! Sesame Street as a whole is well off. Additionally, if you children NEED the education from PBS there are plenty of Sesame Street movies out. But one. however, the parents should spend time with the child teaching them to use their imagination, how to count, learn the alphabet and so on. Or if the child attends day care, then those persons can educate the children WITHOUT tv.

    • Jprydan

      Take into account that with in Obama’s first year in office he promised to keep the unemployment rate below 8% however failed. Also within his first year he added an additional 5 TRILLION to the debt….as of today…he has racked up a total of 15 TRILLION in debt. That is more than Any other president. Yes, he like every other president going into office had prior issues to take care of…a mess to clean per se. However out of the full 508 promises Obama made during his initial campaign, he only kept 37%…..that’s awful!!!! His stimulus plan ended up giving tons of under serving persons bonuses and raises! Lets not forget that when Obama came into office 32 million people were on food stamps…now 47 million people on food stamps!!! Foreclosure a are at an all time high–6 million to be exact!! He wants America to become a nuclear weapons free vulnerable place while every other country is continuing too add to their collection of nuclear weapons! He raised the health care premiums by 9%. He rejected Canada’s proposed keystone XL pipeline construction that would have created tens of thousands of jobs which too would have brought in nearly a billion barrels of oil daily to the US. Additionally, he pulled a permit from West Virginia coal mine that cost 250 American jobs! So what good has he done for America?!??? What has he done to help you?!

  • frog2012

    I think the Democrat versus the Republican is a mute point in this election. It is about us and the direction of the best country in the world. We have terroists that are raising their children to hate the west and growing them to kill. This president has raised our debt so high that our credit status has been lowered. The debt is so great that if you stacked $100 bills on a 3×3 pallet 6 feet high, you would need to fill 6 foot ball stadiums to pay off the debt. We will always have debt, but do think that we should pay for the people who chose to do nothing is ignorant. This is for real, you will feel the impact of these decisions and it’s your children and grandchildren that are at the mercy of your country. What this president has done is forced you to share the candy that you went out and gathered during trick or treat, and divide it up amongst the total number of houses in your housing edition. You will share the candy with those who spite you and choose to do nothing. It is scary and we will see how it turns out in November.

A baby you are preg with is not birth control or just keep your legs closed, in addition why should someone be able to milk the system and not even try to work when others are out their pulling their weight?

Sure we all have differences I’m opinion… But by now race as you can see is definitely not an issue anymore. We as a free nation under God have an obligation to uphold the principles and morals that make us the greatest country in the world or has that mentality slipped through the cracks over the years and been replaced with greed n callousness? I for one have been completely ashamed by some of the things I’ve been hearing throughout the last elections. Lets try to weigh the FACTS about each candidate and really push towards a better America… “# team get it right or die trying” is what we should say because this is our future. Also, we as people who claim to have reasons to bash the other candidate should first examine our own lives because no one is perfect… Period! God’s word is proof of that. We all have fallen short in the sight of the Lord. Now I’m a firm believer in the faith but I cannot dislike this one for this or that one for that… I let the facts speak for themselves. The presidency should not be a popularity contest but rather an outward expression of how we as Americans feel this country should best function as well as be represented as a free nation.

  • http://shopfuscha.com Yvette

    This issue is about the buffet tax and the promise the republicans made to the 1% that they would never have to pay thier share. I was them to pay as much as me and that would erase the national debt. Cutting cost never helped during Both Bush eras, Clinton nor Obama. Let the rich pay or according to Romney we can see our taxes go higher while the rich enjoy more tax breaks. If that is what Americans want then they are either racist, ignorant, or just plan blind to the issues that lay before them. if this isn’t a racist issue how come I never heard such violent words flung at Bush when this country fell under the recession during his time as president and remained the same after he left. We elected him twice after 9/11, after the housing bubble popped, after upside-down mortgages, after Katrina, after the stock market crash, after two meaningless wars, after banks closing thier doors… Need i say more?

          “Communism is a revolutionary socialist movement to create a classless, moneyless, and stateless social order structured upon common ownership of the means of production, as well as a social, political and economic ideology that aims at the establishment of this social order.”
          Being against carrying guns does not equate to Communism. Communism is a buzzword stuck in your head by extremist conservatives that want the public to associate Democrats with the most negative things they can find some kind of minor link to. Obama was declared a “communist” simply because he feels the rich should have to pay rates along the lines of the middle and lower classes. According to Limbaugh-logic, this means that the rich will become poor because the extra 10% they would pay in taxes equates to the entirety of their fortunes. You’re jumping onto an obscure (and incorrect) little ideal that Obama wants and basing your entire communist standpoint on that? Please, spare our country your ignorance and do not vote. Do not fill out that ballot and mail it in. You don’t know what your talking about and an ignorant vote, is more dangerous than just randomly selecting your choices on the ballot.

            Zack, do you feel like Obama really wants a strong America? You don’t have to look very hard to see he doesn’t. We could debate all kinds of issues all day long but here is the trump all.

That’s a whole nother Obama issue isn’t it?

    • Marc

      Yvette, what you aren’t mentioning (or realizing) is that the top 10% pay 59% of all taxes in America! What you are requesting is for them to pay more?!?! Here is the best analogy I’ve seen:

      Suppose that every day ten men go to a restaurant for dinner. The bill for all ten comes to $100. If it was paid the way we pay our taxes, the first four men would pay nothing; the fifth would pay $1; the sixth would pay $3; the seventh $7; the eighth $12; the ninth $18. The tenth man (the richest) would pay $59. The ten men ate dinner in the restaurant every day and seemed quite happy with the arrangement until the owner threw them a curve.

      0 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 1 + 3 + 7 + 12 + 18 + 59 = 100 cost of dinner

      “Since you’re all such good customers, he said, I’m going to reduce the cost of your daily meal by $20.” Now dinner for the 10 only costs $80.

      The first four are unaffected; they still eat for free. Can you figure out how to divvy up the $20 savings among the remaining six so that everyone gets his fair share? The men realize that $20 divided by 6 is $3.33, but if they subtract that from everybody’s share, then the fifth man and the sixth man would end up being paid to eat their meal.

      The restaurant owner proceeded to work out the amounts each should pay under the same assumptions: Now the fifth man also paid nothing, the sixth pitched in $2, the seventh paid $5, the eighth paid $9, and the ninth paid $12 leaving the tenth man with a bill of $52 instead of $59. Outside the restaurant, the men began to compare their savings. “I only got a dollar out the $20,” complained the sixth man, pointing to the tenth, “and he got 7!”

      0 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 2 + 5 + 9 + 12 + 52 = 80 reduced cost of dinner

      “Yeah, that’s right,” exclaimed the fifth man. “I only saved a dollar, too. It’s unfair that he got seven times more than me!”

      0 + 0 + 0 + 0 + (-1) + (-1) + (-2) + (-3) + (-6) + (-7)= (-20) savings on dinner

      “That’s true,” shouted the seventh man. “Why should he get $7 back when I got only $2? The wealthy get all the breaks!”

      “Wait a minute,” yelled the first four men in unison. “We didn’t get anything at all. The system exploits the poor.”

      The nine men surrounded the tenth and beat him up. The next night he didn’t show up for dinner, so the nine sat down and ate without him. But when it came time to pay the bill, they discovered something important. They were $52 short!

      And that, boys, girls, and college instructors, is how America’s tax system works. The people who pay the highest taxes get the most benefit from a tax reduction. Tax them too much, attack them for being wealthy, and they just may not show up at the table any more.

    I’m glad to see some real Americans out here,Anyone wanting to put Obama back in,,, you let us know how you feel later when this man leads us,,and he wil!!!to a communist Nation and Dick tatorship very soon,,,thats just what he wants,,Can’t you educated fools see something that is so plain to see??Wake Up Before It’s To Late.I just don’t believe there are so many IDIOTS in this Country!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Zack

      Harold, you need to stop listening to Rush Limbaugh and actually find out some factual information about our country so you stop looking stupid on the internet. Please tell us how curbing the out-of-control medical costs in this country, creating a tremendous number of jobs since the recession (that Republicans created) and getting our country back into being tolerable to the rest of the world constitutes a path to communism. I’m sure you found yourself witty in your misspelling of “dictatorship” too, but please look up the definition of these words before spouting them off like a brain-dead parrot. This country, in its current structure, can never fall into communism, but Limbaugh and the like started crying like spoiled children as soon as Bush lost the election. Let’s face it, Democrats could have put an Appalachian, inbred mutant on the ballot and it would have beat the incumbent party’s best candidate (and McCain was very good, before he conformed to the right-wing garbage he needed to agree to to secure his selection in the primary.) If this is all above your head, I’ll summarize for you:
      “You don’t know what you are talking about. Education seems to have eluded you.”

      • msintek@frontierincentives.com

        I understand your comments but do you know how condescending you sound when addressing the fears of some of the other peoples postings. We all agree with what you say you want addressed, but disagree that Obama and his idealogy can fix the problems. It’s agreed that Obama inherited a mess but have you forgotten that the Democrats were part and parcel of the problem and the Republicans went along with them. Democrat’s voted for the War, they did lead the way for loans to unqualified buyers, passed legislation without bi-partisan approval without reading the bill and could not pass a budget. Do you really think goverment is capable of lowering health care? It needs a complete overhaul, agreed, but it’s naive to believe that non effecient corrupt goverment can give us what you desire. Democrats seem incapable of cutting spending and THAT IS THE REAL ISSUE.
        I guess what I really do not understand why you seek a socialist society? Have you been to Europe? I have traveled extensivly. It takes 9 years for a buinsess to start up in Italy from the regulations and years to complete highways that we could complete in a couple of years. In Greece families are forced to live together with no hope of having thier own home. In France they are angry because they must work two years longer and protesting. Its as if they cannot live without a ruling class. Is that what you want? The rich are very rich in Europe and the rest have “just enough”…is that okya with you???/

        • Zack

          Thank you for responding intelligently. I sincerely appreciate that. I se far too little of that sort of thing on the internet when discussing politics. Yes, I agree with you on the healthcare issue you mentioned. It is in DIRE need of a full overhaul, but lobbyists in this country are, sadly, the lawmakers, not the puppets that sign the documents, and lobbyists rule with money. There is far too much money behind stopping full-out reform and that’s why it has to take such small steps. The only reason the healthcare issue came up so recently was because the Republicans were trying to get the Supreme Court to declare Obama’s plan unconstitutional, because they lost the vote and couldn’t stop it themselves. The health plan was passed years ago and it made compromises to ensure it got the votes needed to pass. Socialized medicine, with a private option for those that can afford it, is the only way to control medical costs here. Especially with all the patent laws on drugs. It takes at least 5 years before another company is allowed to produce a generic copy of some brand name drug (if I’m incorrect, then the the time is even longer than that, maybe 7-10?)
          Regarding the war, Congress was lied to. There wasn’t any clear evidence that Hussein had anything to do with 9/11, nor was there any clear evidence of the reported WMDs, yet these were the claims made to get the favor to allow declaration of war. Which wouldn’t have been so bad, if it really ended with “Mission Accomplished” (remember that faux pas?) It didn’t end there and we’ve lost thousands of soldiers to a conflict we declared was over, years ago. Yes, this got money into the hands of the soldiers and their families, which one could argue stimulates economic growth, but the money always goes into someone’s hands when the government spends and if the budget is a concern, I’d wager a budget expense of roughly a quarter of the country’s budget warrants review and downsizing. I do believe we are too far in to simply drop everything in the middle east and get everyone home, but only because I have a conscious and most the problems we are fixing (as far as I’m aware of) are problems we caused. I could very well be misinformed on this, but speaking with a number of military people who sit on both sides of the political fence, this is the information being fed to them.

      • Ashly

        Zac as far as your comments about the health care you have NO CLUE what government run health car is like at all!!! I hope like hell Obama is voted out and this is over turned!! My oldest son has a rare syndrome called prune belly syndrome (look it up as I’m POSITIVE you’ve never heard of it) 50% of children born with it DIE before the age of 2 my son is 4 he has had MANY surgeries thanks to our (costly) health care that many other PBS children in countries with government run health care can’t get, I speak to other prune belly parents daily who can’t get what my son can because of their health care, I will continue to pay out the ass for my sons medical care and be HAPPY and GRATEFUL to do it so he doesn’t end up like the boy in Canada who was just denied a kidney transplant because the statistical rate of survival with PBS is to low for him to qualify screw that money means NOTHING when it comes to my kids life!! Educate your self!!!!!!!! I hate to think of where out country would end up if we’re stuck with another 4yrs of this nut job we have right now

      • james

        Zack, you obviously don’t want to acknowledge ANYTING Obama has done as president. If you were able to look at your guy with out your liberal goggles on you would be ready to fire him this Tuesday like the rest of us. Romney is winning this thing in a landslide! Even the liberal polls will show this by election day

  • Harold

    I fought for freedom of our great country like many others,,but if Obama is back in I will leave this Country as it will never be the same!!!!Enjoy Socialism,,because I’m NOT!!

    • Pablo

      Bye. I’ll respect whoever wins, because they were elected by the people. God bless America that we can do that instead of just make Harold happy.

    • Karin

      See yah!
      Where are you going to go? I have lived in 4 other countries, I still consider this to be the best but we do NOT have it all figured out and plenty of coutries do things far better than we do.
      I am the daughter of an Air Force Col who fought in Vietnam and a wife of a Col as well and I find it ironic that the military is so against socialism when everything we experience on a base is socialistic. Subsidized day care, housing allowances, free medical (some of which is asinine- like the free boob jobs, invitro and lasik for family members)are only some of the examples. Most of my military friends are so against giving a helping hand to people in our own country but they do not have a problem giving a helping hand (for the last 10+ years) to other countries where we are trying to build their infrastructure. Let’s take a good look at ourselves and stop blaming others for all that is wrong around us. I am not thrilled with either candidate but I am not blaming Obama for our countries financial problems. If you notice other countries are experiencing the same thing, and he is not their president. Wake up. If really think Obama will ruin our country and you still want to leave… I will help you pack !

  • Harold

    Zac Is about as Brain dead as you can get,,If Gay Man Obama gets back in I’llgrant you you will not want to show your face,,,,Because you are as Gay as he is..America don’t need those kind ,,Obama has downsyndrome asnd sure is begining to show!!!!!!Wake Up America!

  • Scott Senator

    I’m so tired of wingnut websites who actually publish absurd preductions like Obama receiving only 218 votes…….It will be Romney in the popular vote but Obama winning 277 electoral votes…..I wonder if the republicals can block everything for another 4 years and then LIE about it. Goodnight Wingnuts !!

    • james

      It’s time to open up your eyes liberals. Whether you want to see the truth or not, Obama is a complete disaster as president. He fooled a lot of people in 2008 but enough people have been paying attention. Romney gains every day in popularity. The Obama machine can only go so far with the constant attacks on Romney. It’s becoming more clear every day the republican challenger will win this election with 300 or more electoral votes.

  • http://elkwood77 Roy

    Say what you want about Romney, but he believes in God and doesn’t hide it. This country I served for over 20 years was founded “In God we Trust”, not take god out of everything in the name of separation of church & state. When I took my military oath, and when serving on a jury, it ended with so help me God. The founding congress would open each session with prayer, because they believed in God, something Obama clearly does not. He has covered up anything in the White House that relates to God. A man of God would not do that, nor would he support gay marriage, homosexuals and abortion on demand. I look forward to having a President with moral values. God Bless America!!!

    • lindsaylove

      you are aware that the mormon god is Lucifer, correct? you better be sure of the evil you’re so quick to get rid of before you usher in you obviously know nothing of, sir. i’d read up on the things they believe before you compare it to Christ or God. they have some corrupt, horrible teachings that are NOT of God. the things you outline are the only things you die-hard indoctriniated ppl that affiliate themselves with political parites think of. abortion, gays, and homo marriage. please, there’s a LOT worse going on than that, that is only a side effect. the fact is that this nation has forgotten God, and people like you have the balls to consider themselves wise when you HAVE NO IDEA OF WHAT YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT!! get your head outta your ass, sir, and you might be able to see things a bit more clearly.

  • lindsaylove

    all you people sound retarded arguing about the Democrats and the Republicans. you are retarded for aligning yourselves with either one of them. you are feeding right into this exactly the way you sleepwalking zombies were intended to–fighting amonst yourselves for a candidate that nobody remembers nominating for the position in the first place. mindless sleepwalkers have no idea that you all have been hoodwinked, tricked, bamboozled, fooled, conned, deceived, shammed, LIED to. this “election” isnt what you think it is….but of course, you’re a republican/democrat. you know everything.

  • lindsaylove

    not one of you have any reasons why the man you support should be in office—all you have are reasons why the other man shouldn’t. don’t you see what the problem is? all you cattle get ready for the slaughter house. this is your last wake up call. the end is near.

  • Shelley2

    Can I get some open minded opinions on this Issue?
    (Sorry this is so long, but it is important to me)
    I don’t even like politics, simply because it is exactly that: Politics!!!! But I need an explanation or a better understanding of this particular Romney/Ryan Tax Plan —- and a sufficient answer that Is not danced around (Keep in mind I am an independent Voter) To be able to feel good about our vote, I think most of America needs to understand this first.
    The Romney/Ryan Tax Cuts of 5 Trillion dollars: I feel like the reason there are sooooo many???????? And not a better explanation is because it is truly based on?????? Or hypothetical’s…… I believe they will cut out loop holes and deductions (Which is also a ????? but even if they do) how they will get the revenue that off-sets or pays for the tax cuts are the issue? They believe that with cutting taxes this in turn will create job growth and employment. With more people working and paying taxes this will provide the revenue to pay for the tax cuts. —-But aren’t they lowering taxes??? —Which is less revenue….  & what if it does not provide the employment #’s they are hoping for? (I understand a lot of our deficit is from the mortgage meltdown & Bail-Outs, however- a majority of our deficit is also from the Bush tax cuts and the wars in Iraq & Afghanistan) Wouldn’t a tax cut help with spending…..? And not job growth? American’s put more money in there pocket, which will help the economy and they will spend more……  (I get it) —–But aren’t we banking on that (hopefully) the tax cuts will create enough jobs that will off-set to pay for the lower taxes? Seems pretty risky, how could you not increase the deficit with this objective? Or say that you will not? I guess we won’t know?  If the upper class will be paying less in taxes compared to the middle class, how is this growing the middle class? The upper class should pay at least what the middle class has to pay, ethically they should be paying more —- What am I missing here? Don’t you think that getting out of Iraq/Afghanistan will give us the money to create the jobs we need in the USA? And taxing upper class appropriately? It is always easy to point the finger when you aren’t making the hard decisions…. We should leave the world better for the next generation? Can bush say he did that? Will Obama be able to say he did that? Will Romney/Ryan be able to say that?
    That is all!!!!

      Jobs are a by product of a succesful business venture,funed by capital at risk,managers with skin or personal libility[money],time ,long hours,great ideas,sales and marketing and quality product or services and the market decides if the product and company is successful if so and more production needs more empoyees and machines.
      The expansion of the economy is and the number of new taxpayers both investors, managers and employees is not static.You error is that you view the taxable potential as static.Socialist do not like this model because it is irregular and not as predictable as their control freak central planner model.However the central plan model with the government picking winners and loser is not reliable because you cannot force the market to buy product especially when the product is designed by politically correct invention.
      Your problem is that you want to control the outcome without your personal skin in the game or a personal risk for success or failure.
      If you have a good idea,a little cash, an ability to sell others on be investors an employees you might win and get to pay taxes.
      Greater revenue is produced by more tax payers and at lessor rates some will be inclined to risk there own capital for a chance to win.
      This is not an orderly process and require enlightened selfishness.No business owner measures success in the number of employees but in profit.Government measures success in the number of employees,paying no tax,waste and how big it becomes and how much it can control.
      Jump in with an idea you might produce something.
      Marx actuallyhad contempt for those who produce no product.

        cutting taxes for peoples personal income is one thing, cutting it for businesses is another. Cutting the taxes of a CEO of an insurance company for example that makes 20 million per year won’t make more jobs. Cutting the taxes of the insurance company might, but I doubt it. Get it now? Cutting their taxes will only make them richer.

    But some tribal leaders in town for the gathering say the president and his staff have failed to follow through on the bold promises he made as a candidate and later as president.

    Robert Porter, the president of the Seneca nation in Western New York, said in an interview with the Caucus that Mr. Obama had failed to purse a legislative agenda that would help empower the American Indian nations and improve the economic situation for residents.

    “The administration is very easily co-opting us with lofty promises of supporting the nation-to-nation relationship but then not following through,” Mr. Porter said. “We need to have support for meaningful tribal economic empowerment.”

    Mr. Porter’s tribe has clashed with the administration over legislation passed last year that banned the direct sales of cigarettes through the mail. The Seneca nation had been an aggressive seller of cigarettes by mail and denounced the legislation as a means of crippling economic activity on American Indian reservations.

    A news release in March from the Seneca nation accused Mr. Obama of “deliberately betraying” American Indians by signing the legislation into law.
