These are your typical PATRIOTIC Obama supporters.

Obama said that “Patriotic” Americans Willing To Pay More Taxes…

This is where you tax dollar is going. These are the people who are voting for Obama.

This thread is a perfect example of why Mitt Romney's campaign and the GOP is in a free-fall.

Instead of recognizing that there are many legitimate reasons to vote for the Democratic candidate, the RWNJ's insist on creating an empty chair which symbolizes their twisted view of Obama and a caricature of Obama supporters as uneducated freeloaders. If they would address the legitimate issues they might make some headway.

You would think that after Willard got put on the defensive with that idiotic remark about the 47 % that more GOP would have woken up and smelled the coffee but obviously there are some hard core RWNJs with their head deep in the sand.

And referring to Americans who already pay taxes as un-Patriotic American isn't insulting right?

Well then, show us what obama is proposing? His "Now" 2 minute video does nothing but blame others.....no direction, just a mention of some job numbers that are also false...everything else is blame blame blame....no substance...

What are obamas plans? Are they the same a they were 4 years ago?

Sad that you will fall for this same old crap from 4 years ago, just rinsed and stained with a different color, nothing more nothing less.

I haven't seen the video and don't base my voting decisions on sound bites.

It isn't hard to find what Obama is proposing:
Economy | Change.gov: The Obama-Biden Transition Team

It might take longer than 2 minutes to read.

Here is Romney's
Jobs and Economic Growth | Mitt Romney for President

I do agree with Romney as far as reining in the EPA. I do not think he put much thought into his "Human Capital" section. (Need qualified emplyees? Let's bring in some foreigners with advanced degrees!) I am also NO fan of unions but I can't see Romney having any success breaking union strangleholds, and I do not see unions per see as the root cause of our economic problems.

It would be very easy to find supporters of both sides who are utter morons. Actually, the most depressing aspect of such ignorance is that these morons scream the loudest; therefore they become the "face" of their respective parties.
Moderates are always drowned out by extremists and idiots. This is nothing new.

Put the year 2008 on that and you have the same promises by obama and biden. Add a few lines for the housing crisis and you have the same thing they were talking about in 2008.

As for romney, I believe he will surround himself with smart people and listen to them, unlike obama has done, obama has put smart people around him but does not listen.

The Tea Party isn't known for their intellectual prowess either. I saw plenty of teabagger seniors waving signs that said "keep your government hands off my Medicare".

I was looking at some photos of Willard's recent campaign rally's to get an idea of what his "typical" supporter looked like. Since he's attacked 47% of the electorate I wanted to see what those in the remaining 53% who are supporting him looked like. I guess I shouldn't have been suprised by what I saw. So very typical:
