    So we should pick a president that can make money from his investments. Patriotism and a vision for the common good of the nation is secondary - got it. While we persue this capitalist dream the rest of the world has found out what is really important.

    There's a lot of things on our local ballot this November, I won't lose a lick of sleep over leaving one chad unpunched. I am responsible before God for who I vote for and why I voted for them. Our current president is not a big enough club to make me vote for someone else that goes against the aforementioned principle. In my book, "None of the above" is as just and viable --and guilt free-- an option, as any currently out there.

    My God does not have a flat spot on His forehead from continually facepalming himself, saying, "I can't believe that guy is getting away with all that...". Nor is He anxiously wringing His Hands wondering who is going to get the big prize in November or whether this Republic survives another 10 years.

    Like Him, I'm waiting on His Church, to see what it's going to do now. If those plans don't include confession, repentance and seeking His Face quick, fast and in a hurry, I can assure them with full confidence that, regardless of their political aspersions, leanings and ideologies, the next four years are going to be filled with much weeping and gnashing of teeth.
    (The wise men of modern thought) adore a god made of putty or of wax - plastic, effeminate, molluscous, with no masculine faculty about him, and no quality that entitles him to the respect of just and honest men, for a being who cannot be angry at wrongdoing is destitute of one of the essential virtues, and a moral Ruler who is not angry with the wicked, and who refuses to punish crime, is not divine. ---Spurgeon

    Yeah we should pick a life long alien Marxist. To finish the job he started. Funny we can't flee to Cuba like the Cubans did to the US. Thank you, thank you very much

    That attack female dog Debbie Wasserman, the chairman of the DNC was all over the Sunday talk shows complaining about Romney's offshore accounts and one year of tax returns.
    Typical liberal... She has money invested in Switzerland and India and has refused to turn over even a years tax return.
    Every time I see or hear her I wonder how desperate her husband must be to put up with that.

    I'm not a big Romney fan, but I figure that he is;

    • A decent person, since he has given away more money to good causes than Obama has ever made.
    • Good at economics since he has done so well in business.
    • Been responsible for more Americans having public sector jobs than Obama has, and not responsible for anywhere near as many of us losing out jobs, as Obama is.
    • More used to delegating power than wanting to be all powerful, as Obama does.
    It really is a no brainer that Obama simply has to go before he does any more damage.

    How do you run the Olympics and still be active in a full time job? I was on the books, and collecting a stipend for a company for five or six years after I stopped working for that company.

    Where is the lie?

    Delegate. It's what chiefs do.

    Yes, but didn't remain President, CEO, sole stockholder and bottlewasher at that company. Romney did and denied it every chance he got.

    Where the problem comes in is when someone tries to take credit for the good things that happened (saving companies) and disowning the bad (off shoring jobs) after you have said you don't have an interest in the company. Tax returns would clear this up, but it appears he is hiding something.

    Is there a politician out there that does not do this? For that matter, don't we all tout our positives and avoid our negatives. So what makes Romney any worse for doing what everyone else does?

    Are we better off having had over three years under a man who'se primary function in life has been to move money from those who earn it to give to those who do not? Are we better off having had a man who never held a private sector job in his life?

    Is it not more rational to understand that someone who has created jobs in the private sector, built successful companies and who knows very well how to delegate responsibilities to those who are best at doing specific jobs be the person we have as our leader?

    No, running a government and running a private equity firm are different. The question everyone should ask is why is this guy better now than in 2006 when the party chose someone else they felt was better qualified?
