"Poor, dumb" Dwight D. Eisenhower had never run a business either.
"Poor, dumb" Ronald Reagan had never run a business.
"Poor, dumb" Gerald Ford had never run a business.

Who was the last Republican President to run a business? Herbert Hoover.

So when we talk about "low IQ," it's the people who have been fooled into thinking that the ability to run a business is a qualification to be a good president.

But when we talk about Romney in particular, and ignore his record as a governor and only look at him as if he was some captain of industry, which he wasn't, we have to realize what he did in that business. He was able to use his father's connections and money to start a financial firm that didn't care about the companies it owned or the people that worked there. The objective was to make money and the company's health and the employees were incidental. I personally don't want a president that thinks that way about the American people.

Romney was born on home plate and tries to convince use he's a self-made businessman that hit a home run. When we takeaway the lies and distortions that he's been saying, there is nothing there, while he tells us not to pay attention to the man behind the curtain.

Oh, now we can chalk up "how glorious entitlement is," as another lie that nobody on the Obama side ever said.

Your President has failed and he's about to get fired. You're not coping too well with that fact.

Really swami? I take it you're selling everything you own to bet on the election since you can see the future. Vegas is still giving bigger payouts on Romney winning than Obama, so if you really knew what the outcome would be then you'd putting money down.

The President is everyone's president. You probably don't like him as much as you liked Bush, but he's the President.

I think there's a real correlation between intelligence and people who say they know what the outcome will be. It seems like the biggest partisan idiots from both the left and right on this forum are always saying that they know the outcome of an election.

As they say in the Marines, "wishful thinking is not a strategy."
