Anne the man is here solely as an anti-Romney troll for the MESSiah.

Fortunately America does have a good candidate in Romney. His qualifications are excellent, and really, really needed right now.
The DNC have always been worried about Romney because he is the only real threat, gue to his qualifications for the job. Lat round we ended up with Obama because the Republicans in Congress threw their political machine districts to McCain for job promises, McCain is no better than Obama, being a Washington insider with NO executive or business experience, the Dems in Congress, who outnumbered the Repubs at the time, threw a CHANGE button on Obama and backed him with their political machines in their districts. Couple that with a natural cycle for change after 8 years of Bush, and Bush bashing the whole time, and we got the change; Obama. Now that the Dems don't hold the majorities the rubberstamp is without ink.
Mattie, the trouble is, he says he feels folk's pain, but that's all he does is say. He doesn't do anything about it, and that is because he doesn't know how, which goes back to the fact that he's in over his head. At this point, he's comfortably numb with other people's pain.
Hey, I thought the Democrats wanted to raise taxes on the rich and close loopholes, yet not only did they not when they had all the majorities, it seems a group of companies got SPECIAL treatment.

Obama wants to prevent businesses from getting a tax cut because they pay the highest rate in the world, yet he gives SPECIAL breaks to companies that are campaign donors? Of the Fortune 500; A quarter of the companies (71) paid more than 30 percent (averaging 32.3%) in corporate taxes over the three years. Another quarter (67) paid effective three-year tax rates of less than 10 percent, with the average effective tax rate being zero. Thirty of these companies paid LESS than zero.

Obama is a bad bet, so I really don't see him pulling in the money people think he will. Besides, who the hell in their right mind want to see him get re-elected, unless they get SPECIAL tax favors, but I think that shiat is over, and he's out.
