Romney has more money.

All politicians lie. And it does bother me. As someone said, i would rather Obama break some of his promises than the republicans keep theirs. Who is your "write in?"

True, he did fail to pass MANY things, even with congressional support. So politics go.

I would have preferred single payer. I do NOT support healthcare being forced on anyone, but i loathe the for-profit private HC sector that puts $$ over people and over care; however, i know several people who have benefited from "Obamacare" and others whose costs have gone down. Open competition has proven in the past to be about profit. Sure, companies might offer better rates, now, to get customers, but it has generally been about outrageous costs. Why would they suddenly change?

Although the private sector certainly encourages competition, it is also for profit. It's not a fast food chain competing for high volume low cost, it's competition for exponentially increased profit at the consumers detriment. That is how i see it.




Give them and extra $20 bucks a week and they are like Lambs to the slaughter.


This is true. But i do not think that Obama is worse than Bush. I don't, my belief.

I do not agree with or like everything Obama has done, but, IMO it's better than the opposite (GOP). As i have also said, i usually vote 3rd Party, but i feel that the GOP policies are generally so antithetical to everything we need as a nation and as a people (including foreign policy), i must vote against it. Especially in these times.

I wish i could vote a different way or not vote, but i just don't know. Time will tell.

This is why i vote as i do.

Heeeey, i know that line. Didn't Romney say that, "Don't hate me because i'm beaut--i mean, successful?" (and you're not!)

No, we dislike him not because he's obscenely successful but because he seems to be vulgarly greedy and to not give a crap about those who have nothing but panders to other people.

That was not exactly my line of argument.

We dislike him not simply because he's successful but because he's wealthy--and doesn't seem to give a crap about those who have little or nothing.

Success doesn't always equate wealth. In his case, however, his success creates wealth, which is largely due to greed.

Why are you beating around the Bush???

Romney is a Pompous Azz who is disconnected from the Real World.

It also implies he has no desire to help them better themselves, that he writes them off. And combined with his proposed policies...those safety nets will likely be cut. . . . . .



This is the core problem right here.

A president used to be a leader.

People took care of themselves.

Now, (and for a while) it has been the role of government to "take care" of the people. Like people are too stupid to take care of themselves.

The Nanny state is expected and anticipated now.

And that's the real damned shame.


But the government should help create the opportunity for betterment.

It also should not "leave people to fend for themselves," especially when the system is stacked against them.

It's not about a "nanny state," even though it does exists to certain degrees.

HE's successful and wealthy because he took American companies and jobs
and destroyed them for his own personal gain. Was all of it unethical, probably
not, but I am not sure how electing a corporate hit man will help America
with its problems with corporatism and oligarchy...

This is more of a liberal talking point than fact.

That's different than taking care of people. Teach a man to fish. . . .

Back to the leftist talking points.

It is exactually about the nanny state!

Wow! Imagine that!

A republican not concerned about the welfare of the poor or austere.

Hey OP... you should do more investigative research into the American political parties, then you would not be quite so amazed by this news.

Republicans are for the 1%...the Elitists. They are not for the 99% and never have been, that is against the republican model.

Romney is only showing his true colors for his constituency.

Seeking the protection of a bankruptcy court isn't necessarily a sign of long-term business failure. Many of the Bain companies emerged from reorganization healthier, just as, for instance, General Motors did a few years ago. But while bankruptcy filings aren't a perfect measure of performance, they provide a way to assess a disparate array of target businesses that in many cases weren't required to make public financial filings.

The Journal's findings could provide fodder for both critics and supporters of Mr. Romney's presidential ambitions and of his role at Bain. Some experts, while conceding that available studies don't provide a direct comparison, said the rate at which the firms Bain invested in ran into trouble appears to be higher than experienced by some rival buyout firms during the era.


From your own source.

This'll get old after a while.

Just keeping it fair and balanced, I suppose.

I like a good argument.


Plus the fact that even though I'm no great fan of Romney, he's 10 times the potential leader that Obama is.

I want Obamacare overturned. Romney stated that he'd do that.
I want our borders tightened. Romney stated he'd do that.

So, like the song says
"If you can't love the one you want. . .
Love the one you're with!"

I have not come on ATS much in the last month or so, because frankly, I could care less anymore. It is obvious everything is rigged, it is obvious our voices mean sh*t.. Why even worry. They will get theirs. Short from a full blown revolution, it is clear we cannot do a damn thing and will never be heard. He will win, him or Obama. I could care less anymore. End of the world come bring it on, I am waiting. S+F either way.

What do we really expect? This guy's TOTALLY out of touch.

Obama's not going to have a very tough job ahead if Mitt keeps this up. All Obama will have to do is keep quiet and Mitt will bury himself!


From what I read he makes millions from some business he has had, or has.

Oops... Quarter of a billion sorry.

Wow .. that was taken out of context .. which is fairly obvious.

On the topic of the countries poor , there are safety nets. What do you want? To be rich while you dont work? It wont happen.

Hell , you can get college grants to go to school while you are living on the street .. as long as you keep a certain GPA. Most of the kids i went to school with actually got 3-4 hundred dollars back for them to spend on what ever they wanted at the end of the semester of grant money that is for school.

50% of this country is considered to low of an income to pay federal taxes.

You can't ask for much more. Believe it or not , but it is your responsibility to protect your family and your house hold. Not the governments. They can only "help". The constitution doesn't differentiate between illness or not - the government does not have a responsibility to ensure your way of life as a single individual.

Of course , i would rather not have to make a big post on the whole issue. You can google the information for yourself.

If you are sick or not , it is still your responsibility or your family's responsibility to ensure your life and safety. Not the governments - as an individual basis.

-----------

Hell the low income people live better than the middle class people.

Show me how I can get a grant.. I served in the military and work whenever I get the chance. I was told to F off.
I do not qualify for the G.I. bill because I got a "general, under honorable conditions" discharge, for speaking my beliefs. Heh "I am not an asset to the Army" is what I was told.
