Romney lies as a reflex, has not shown details of any plan, made money in a legal but nasty way, and the only thing mass remembers him fondly for is Romneycare. Romney "saved" the olympics by lobbying for a 2 billion dollar bailout, which in 2002 John McCain called a rip off of taxpayers: His time in Mass was spent vetoing everything the state congress passed. If mass was successful during his term, it was because they overrode those vetos

Gov. Robme vetoed 844 measures and they were overridden by the House 707 times, or 99% of the time.

Now THAT'S Bipatisanship - Mitt Romney Style.

Romney will bring financial responsibility, as I look at all who support him. I do not believe all these people can be wrong about the contrast between Romney and Obama, and I like what they want to do. In every way, despite the lies about the lower unemployment and economic progress, Romney and his are a better choice. GOPtruther and gogo seem to be ignoring the actual numbers and facts, as our economy continues to sputter.
They are entitled to their own opinions but not their own facts.

In the 1970s President Gerald Ford vetoed 39 consecutive spending bills passed by an allegedly "veto-proof" Congress (more than 2/3rds of each house were Democrats following the Watergate scandal and the midterm elections of 1974). Ford's explanation for why he vetoed all these bills was that the Congress had made no provisions to fund any of the spending.

The Democrats and the media were furious and questioned the legitimacy of so many vetoes by an unelected President.

Twenty years later the left was citing Ford as "irresponsible" because the deficits during his Presidency set records.

During my adult lifetime Congress has done more harm than good. Any Prez with the stones to fight them is alright with me.

Yeah, unemployment under 8% was the goal mark until we hit it and the GOP moved the goal post. those are the actual numbers but if you have other numbers fine.
The official Obama 2012 campaign slogan is "Forward." The operational motto of the Obama administration is "Cheese." As in "say cheese." From hollow Greek columns to strategically released Situation Room candids, the Paparazzi President has put self-serving optics above all else.

What did we get after four long years of expertly staged Kabuki-theater-meets-Potemkin-village productions? Sixteen trillion dollars in debt, a pile of dead bodies, troops at increased risk and a gallery of tax-subsidized Kodachrome pictures creating the grand illusion of leadership.

On Monday night, as Hurricane Sandy bore down on the East Coast, Team Obama's image consultants released a photo showing POTUS purportedly...
