yup.
Mr. Romney terrified the obama leg-humping, freeloading, parasites that call themselves democrats.

And the obama leg-humping, freeloading, parasites that call themselves democrats are so proud of themselves that they got their panties all bunched up when Romney called them the 47%.

Obama, Dems, Repubs, .... the political class. The political class produces nothing. They do nothing to make our lives better or help us make a better living even though we hired them to do so.

Obama and the political class in DC are getting rich by siphoning money from the rest of the country (you and me) and into Washington. Obama must be laughing his ass off as he siphons your money into his hands and you defend him no matter what.

Government is big business and you don't even realize it.

The nations top 10 wealthiest counties now surround Washington, D.C.

They include Loudoun County, Va., ranked No. 1, with a median household income over $119,000 dollars a year. Fairfax County, Va., was second with $105,000 and Arlington County, Va., third with just over $100,000 a year in median household income.

In recent years Washington has attracted more lobbyists and firms with an interest in financial regulations signed into law by Obama and DC has become richer than Silicon Valley.

Lobbyist (big money) plays a big role in the Washington economy (12,964 registered lobbyists). At least 17 senators and 11 members of the House have children, spouses or other close relatives who are lobbyist. Reid's sons and son-in-law have worked as lobbyists.

The tax payer and borrowed money is paying for it. No, Obama is not worried about the government debt because just like GM the tax payer will bail the government out. When the time comes Obama will just spew out more increase tax propaganda and the American people will naively believe him and buy into it.

As the rest of the country worries about feeding their family, paying the mortgage Washington is swimming in money but Obama already said he is going to raise taxes again. Now Dems, get out there and cheer as Obama says he is going to raise taxes.

The naivety of the American people is astounding. Democrat, Republican who cares. The American people should be furious but they have their heads in the sand and cheer at anything Obama says without realizing they are being taken for a ride.

Taxes have been lowered to a point where there are fewer payers. Ironically Romey wanted to lower them even more.

They predicted a landslide for Romney - so they were half right.

So Republicans, do you want this unemployed loser hanging around your party in public?
Yes, I do. Romney is not the guy I voted for in my state's primary - he's not the guy I wanted the Republicans to run for President. But I see no reason why he shouldn't "hang around". Conservatives don't march in lockstep and don't have ideological tests the way liberals do. You don't get ostracized for not toeing the line as a conservative the way you do if you become too politically incorrect as a liberal.

You nailed it. Conservatives think for themselves.
