Campaign 2012 in a Nutshell: Wrong Ideas Vs. No Ideas

I am not sure what you people are looking at, I see a principled, and highly successful person in Romney. Someone who it appears has been provided exactly the life experiences that are needed to turn this country around. He has absolutely stupid campaign advisers, there is no getting around that. But Romney himself has the intelligence and more importantly the experience to fix this broken country. No brainer for me, Romeny is getting my money and my vote. $16 trillion in debt and growing and Obama shouting Forward. We are on the edge of a cliff and he wants to move forward? That is all I need to know to work hard to remove him from office.

Romney attacking the gay kid doesn't bother you? Believe it or not, character counts.

Never forget, never forgive, unless the person is a democrat.

Oh please !!! That was a teenage thing; I suppose you were always perfect? Yeah, right! Romney is a success; if you want to vote for a failure, BO's right in front of your face. You should spend some time learning about BO; you might be shocked. Don't know why you don't see him for what he is, an empty suit, a lier, a sneering, obsequious, vacuous excuse for a real man.
Don't be a stupid lemming, learn something; read books about BO, see 2016.

Romney was reportedly 18, old enough to enlist and go to war. We consider 18-year olds to be adults and we expect them to act like it, which is why when they go to court they're tried as adults.

Hope I never serve on a jury with you. I can see you now - "So what if the defendant attacked the victim, I suppose you were always perfect?"

Generally by the time people are 18, their character is pretty much set. What'd you do at 18 that was that bad or worse?

"by the time people are 18, their character is pretty much set"

Why not just execute all criminals over 18. They cannot be reformed.
From my experience, people go through major changes between the ages of 18 and 25.

So asking what Obama did in college is "racist" but we can decide everything we want about Romney based on high school? By the way, there are people that refute that story - and since the supposed victim is no longer alive we can never know for sure. If the only "skeleton" you can dig up is a wishy washy story with no real proof that supposedly happened when he was 18, I think you are reaching just a bit to find some dirt. If it was really a "character" problem, you think there would be TONS of people since then with more stories. Where are they?

It never happened. Even the gay kids own sister said so.

We put 18-year olds on death row. What part of "adult" don't you understand?

Romney violated the kid's rights. You may believe that's a small thing. It isn't.

It obviously happened. 5 people who were there independently confirmed it. Live in the real world.

Adult and mature adult are quite different.
At 18, I was an atheist and would lie, cheat and steal without conscience. By the time I was 25, I was an evangelical fundamentalist who always tried to avoid lying, cheating or stealing. People do change and almost all change significantly between 18 and 25. Sometimes the maturation process takes longer.

Charlotte, N.C. -- Going by the conventional rules of American politics, the Democratic Convention this week was an unmitigated disaster. And, going by the same rules, GOP convention was a disaster, too. So, either the rules of American politics have fundamentally changed, or at least one of the parties is taking an enormous gamble.

Since the Nixon years, the GOP has enjoyed a marked advantage over the Democrats at the presidential level. Cultural issues -- race, religion, abortion, patriotism -- have worked to the Republicans' advantage. Until Barack Obama's election in 2008, no Democrat has won the presidency without aggressively...
