Mitt Romney blames election loss on Obama giving out free stuff to voters. But doesn't the Republican party pander to millionairea and billionaires who get the majority of their income via capital gains? Doesn't the Repubican party desire a zero tax rate on capital gains income? Mitt Romney, himself, paid an income tax rate of 13.8% last year. During the eight year George W. Bush 'Reign of Error' Romney may very well have paid ZERO income taxes. So much for that Global War on Terror hyperbole where the rich sacrifice nothing!

"Bush says God chose him to lead his nation and commisioned the United States to lead the world" http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2003/nov/02/usa.religion Folks, Romney and Santorum both believe as George W. Bush does; to spend amazing amounts of money and lives in foreign nation building and overseas social engineering. Again, who said "when the Iraqis stand up, we can stand down"? Just what was the USA trying to accomplish in Iraq for eight years?

Dupes will respond with "Five who died for a political agenda and several thousands who died to free millions." Millions were freed from Saddam; but how should this eight year Republican social engineering have been paid for??? Here's what the Republican party would put on the tombstones of the thousands American soldiers who were killed in Iraq --- "These American soldiers were the errand boys for the United Nations and fought the Valiant fight in Iraq. Hooorrah!"

4 in benghazi + one in fast and furious compared to how many dead Americans in Iraq? Does everyone know that Romney had the same foreign policy advisers as George W. Bush?

"Elie Wiesel to Romney, Mormons: Don't baptize dead Jews" http://content.usatoday.com/communities/Religion/post/2012/02/mitt-romney-mormon-baptism-elie-wiesel-holocaust/1#.T0Z1NuVldNQ As a Jew I have just declared all Mormons, dead and alive, to be Muslims. This is the problem that pervades Mr. Romney's party! All Republicans think they are RIGHT, and that gives them leave to do what they want and ignore others rights and points of views and facts of all kinds. Hypocritical trash, if you ask me.

Willard Romney's idea of a foreign policy is to strip assets from American companies and deposit the money in banks in Switzerland and the Cayman Islands.

Willard Romney's criticism of Obama's policy towards Iran is nothing else but shameless politics, very much similar to his other criticisms of the president. In a debate with McCain in 2008 Romney was asked what he'd do if Iran developed a nuclear program. His answer: "I will first consult my lawyers" Now he adopted Obama's position but won't admit it. His advisers are the same ones who gave us the war in Iraq with one difference, they do not say that war with Iran would be a "cakewalk".

Before the election, there was much fear-mongering on the Democratic side about the Republicans’ supposed plans to suppress turnout among Obama voters. After the election, GOP strategist Karl Rove accused the Obama campaign of ‘suppressing the vote’ by running a negative campaign against Romney that kept voters at home. The truth is much worse. There was, in fact, massive suppression of the Republican vote—by the Romney campaign, through the diversion of nearly 40,000 volunteers to a failing computer program. There was no Plan B; there was only confusion, and silence.

#Breitbart.com EXCLUSIVE BOMBSHELL: Romney Lost - As commenters spew racism and conspiracy theories As the right wing recriminations get louder and more strident, one of the big stories in Wingnut Land today is the Romney campaign’s absolutely pitiful “get out the vote” effort they dubbed “ORCA.” At the ridiculous fake news site Breitbart.com, hack Joel Pollak (who, last week, was busy churning out one deceptive article after another about how Romney was destined to win) has one of their “exclusives” that isn’t exclusive at all: Exclusive - Inside Orca: How the Romney Campaign Suppressed Its Own Vote.

Willard Mittens Romney thinks Russia is our number one enemy. When Pakistan shut down the supply routes to Afghanistan (for the US military!) his NEO-CON foreign policy advisers forgot to tell him that all other backup supply routes went through RUSSIA. If Willard had become president, then US military forces in Afghanistan would have been in the same situation the French army was in at Dien Bien Phu in 1953!
