Mitt Romney never promised you a rose garden. He represents a steady competent hand on the wheel. Not a radical bomb throwing tea party type nor a stumbling bumbling weakling like we have now. Romney will do just fine.

We have had a few. Very few. Washington, Lincoln, FDR, Truman, Eisenhower, Reagan. I would include Nixon if he wasn't a crook. He was very competent.

Bush like most right wingers sides with amnesty as illegals are good for big business.
Get beyond the party rhetoric... It isn't about any particular president!!! It is about a problem that needs resolved and needs decisive action. I don't give a damn who has deported how many. I want the damn problem solved and it can be. The right and the left are BOTH lying to us and using us as their pawns.. They are pitting us against one another and both doing the same thing.. Stealing from ALL of us. Right wing this, and left wing that is all a bunch of CRAP

Really? Tell me how...As I asked before...EXPLAIN yourself...don't just fire off wild charges and think that I accept them as fact, because I don't. ELABORATE.....Give me an example!! Especially the part about the the party bankrolling the rich! I look forward to reading your explanation.

This is exactly what we saw under the Bush admin with complete GOP control. Insane, out of control right wing spending that tanked the nation. Bush took the biggest surplus in US history (the result of wildly successful progressive fiscal plans) to the biggest deficit. You are right, it takes a complete idiot to pull that one off, and those complete idiots are the GOP
So then...You forget 9-11. Point...there was no attack on the US under Clinton....and certainly not because he took measures to prevent one. As for the surplus...In part, you can thank Gingrich for that, because he was the one who publicly hammered Clinton into giving the TAX CUT that provided all of the extra government revenue that lead to that balanced budget/surplus!! Oh...and let's not forget..Clinton presided over the country during the TECH BOOM...so the economy thrived!!

And let's be clear about something....9-11....the war in Iraq...The war in Afghanistan....the Airline bailout...the housing crash in 2008...ALL of that happened during Bush...nothing in comparison happened to Clinton. So how in the F*** was Bush supposed to continue to maintain a surplus under those conditions??

The only idiots are the ones who seem to conveniently forget history when it suits their feeble arguments....yes...I mean you.

So you're going to vote for someone even more progressive,...
Romney is more progressive than Obama?? What is in the kool aid that you have been sipping sonny?

The sane people out there explain facts to the far right, brainwashed trailer park rednecks all the time. The thing is they don't care about facts. They have some of the most ridiculous and laughably distorted facts programmed into their feeble minds, trying to present even a drop of intelligence or factual information to them is completely pointless.
It's more entertaining just to laugh at all the outrageous things they believe
Funny...I never see a ******* explain anything. They just throw out accusations and expect that everyone will assume they are factual. And the sad part about it is that the reason you libs do that is because you are incapable of explaining one damn thing....because all you have been programmed to do is attack...no basis for it...just attack. When someone calls you out to explain as I did....you end up blabbering as you have in your response...aimless snippets of nothing resembling a factual, pointed argument...just read your last quote if you want proof. Where in that load of crap do you see a tangible explanation of your charges?? you don't. And that is typical of your ilk.

The FACTS are this...Obama is a failure as a president. There is nothing that any of you libs can point to that has occurred during his tenure as president that is a positive. Are we better off than we were 3 years ago?? No...decidedly not. And that is a FACT. Undisputable.

I have given you a chance to respond with something more than the feeble display you gave, and you showed me what you are about. So...for that, I dismiss you. There is no reason for you to go any further, because there is no substance to your ranting. It's just rehashed...re-assembled yammering of talking points from the left wingdings who are at a loss to champion anything about such a failure as obama.

But hell....nice try....NOT.
