From the opening speech in Charlotte that demonstrated the left’s obsession with killing unborn children to Obama telling us why we need more of him in our lives to survive, the entire convention showed how insane some people in this country are IMO.

If Obama is reelected we should just spin the “wheel of misfortune” and see what our fate is.



It doesn't matter what they said at their convention because the numbers paint the picture of what Obama's policies do for the country:

• 23 million Americans are out of work, have stopped looking for work, or are underemployed
• $16 trillion national debt (that’s $50,000 for every American)
• 43 straight months of 8% or higher unemployment
• 4 straight trillion dollar budget deficits in a row

Obama’s policies won’t lead to a prosperous future for Americans….that should be obvious to everyone at this point.

Obama said that he wants us to follow him and walk down that long and hard road with him. He said it won't be easy, in fact it will be hard, but, if, we follow him down the road it will bring us to a far far better place.

Is that the same as saying, " Alas, it is to a far better place I go..." Like when someone commits suicide or gets killed, they say, " He's in a much better place now.."

I for one am not going down the road with Obama.

The anti-Obama folks bring up race 100 times more than any supporter does.


Please explain this – this is from last week’s DNC convention. I don't remember racist campaign buttons at the GOP convention.

Leave it alone. The anti-Obama folks bring up race 100 times more than any supporter does.


I disagree with policy and I'm race-baiting?

Explain.

In my humble opinion, the election is going to be a blow-out FOR Romney. Too many people are still "saying" that they'll vote for Obama over fear of being labeled a racist or race-traitor.

The polls will go back and forth, tis how Gallup makes money. But it'll be a shoe-in for Romney.


Oh really? How do you define a blow-out? Are you giving points?

I happen to believe that Obama will be re-elected, although not by "blow-out" margins, and I'd even be willing to place a wager. How about it? What do you think, is $10,000.00 enough?

No. But I'll wager a bottle of scotch. 500.00 limit.

Disagreeing with policy would be something like:

Obama's economic recovery plan does not address the fundamental issues that our economy is facing

Your statement that is race baiting:

Too many people are still "saying" that they'll vote for Obama over fear of being labeled a racist or race-traitor.

Actually, that's truth based on personal experience and interaction.

Wonder what it will be after the dismal job report.


I predict President Mitt Romney will be ahead by 3% by next Wednesday.

Obama has no solutions.

More empty promises won't work.

Put your money away.

It's already over.

The loss of 368,000 people from the workforce is devastating.


There is no way to spin it.

Our college grads need jobs right now. They are moving in with their parents.

As some had remarked, during those 2 party conventions, even if the leaders had read from the yellow pages, there would be huge outpouring of cheers by the party faithfuls. They are the faithfuls after all, and vote no other way.

It will be the swing voters whom will matter more, and they are not blind nor loyal to any party. They will only vote for what the candidate offers.

Right now, of major importance is the economy, for majority are suffering from its effects, except for the 1%. But the 1% are from the party faithfuls and thus their voting choice is negligible. IT is the swing voters that will decide.

So which party offers better?

The republicans had been fools to use Paul Ryan as a choice and give him the golden opportunity to spout his austerity nonsense. Republicans never seem to learn. McCain made that mistake with Sarah Paulin, and now Romney did the same with Ryan.

Swing voters are not blind to what is happening around the world, with others using economic doctrines that had failed such as EU. Austerity was one of them, and bankrolling the rich is another. Yet the republican touted such failures to the american public, unabasedly.

The Democrats promoted growth, and indeed there had been growth over the past 4 years, although a slow one, espacially in one whereby the ENTIRE world is suffering from recession, which the swing voters are fully aware of and expected, except for those deluded seeking instant magic cures.

Growth, Quality products/services, necessary Innovation, are the only solutions, with careful spending to ensure returns, to stimulate education, health, productivity and hoarded funds, and re - circulate wealth into the economy, to bring about a higher GDP within the next few years to repay those loans comfortably.

Party faithfuls from both sides can argue whole day on the merits and demerits of whichever economy policy for the next 60 days,

BUT, it cannot alter the fact that austerity and continual bailout of the rich is a failed economic policy around the world, and the critical swing voters are most CERTAINLY not going to entrust they and their children's future to provened failed policies such as austerity, privitising profits but socialising debts, bloating the military instead of streamlining of weary soldiers, by the republicans.

Once into that path, there will be nothing left by the next election, for after 4 years, the rich will go to the bahamas, the talented to other nations, jobs to the cheapest nations, and americans and america become 3rd world. Look at EU today, such as spain and greece.

Their social economic infrustructure had crumbled, with 26% unemployment and rising, and will continue on. Their only hope left is ECB to bail them out, or the rest in EU will equally share the same fate. This is not fear mongering, but only the sad fact and realities of failed economic policies one can easily see unless wilfully blind.

'Change' or ' Next' euphemisms may be catchy, but one must face realities. Swing voters will not want to jump from the hot kettle that would cool down later, instead into the frying pan , more so when they know it IS a frying pan that they will land on.

Other issues are moot, for the voting electorate are only small. Economics is the most vital issue, because without a good economy of shared wealth, there is no way to exist for the other minor issues to even ponder upon.

You just made a great argument for President Mitt Romney!

Vice President Paul Ryan has seen through the ObamaCare smoke and mirrors.

Repealing ObamaCare is a key part to healing Americas economic wounds.

This is hilariouly sad.

Funny, did you know?

When the Obama Administration saw a Gallup poll it didn't like, it asked Gallup to change the way it does its polling. Gallup said it would not. And then the Department of Justice signed onto a suit accusing Gallup of false claims.

Talk about desperation, the Obama administration is.

Have you ever seen a White House behave this way?

Everyone will just ignore Gallup and go to Rasmussen instead.

Rasmussen: Daily Swing State Tracking Poll September 8, 2012

Romney 46%

Obama 45%

Well, there goes Ohio.

I see President Mitt Romney getting 320 Electoral Votes.

How many think this is more to do with the powerful speach that Clinton gave rather than what Pres. Obama said. I watched both conventions for every night that they were on and Clintons speach was by far the best.

Clinton spent too long going on and on about - compromise -.

Obama never compromises.

----------
This was by far the most compelling speech.

- 23 Million Americans unemployed - that is a disgrace.

- When someone does not do the job, you got to let them go.

The first to bring up race in this thread was an Obamite.

Obamite? Really? How crass.
