    so, when do you think Romney will pay the taxes he still owes; before or after November 6th?

    Hope & Change My A$$ Says:

    @Mary~ Who cares about Romney’s taxes? I would rather see him in office than this low life liar & his “I don’t have to show my birth certificate a$$”… Go piss up a rope!

    I think Angelina Jolie should be president. This man has ruined our country and lied about everything he promised America. She would do the same, just in a different way.

    a brain dead squirrel on life support has more intelligence than you do. PO produced his birth certificate a long time ago. you were paying attention in school when the other kids were learning that Hawaii is the 50th State in the Union. oh wait, you were absent not only on that day but for the entire year.

    @Texas Girl:

    So it’s been 2 years since you opened your business. ANY PROFITS YET? Do you provide health insurance to your 4 employees?…I bet the answer to these questions is big NO. LOL

    You’re not SMART and I can tell.

    Twinkle Says:

    VOTE FOR MITT ROMNEY PRESIDENT AND PAUL RYAN FOR VICE-PRESIDENT THIS COMING NOVEMBER ELECTION 2012.

    NO MORE 4 YEARS OF THE SAME OLD NEWS OF BROKEN PROMISES AND FAILED POLICIES.

    DEMOCRATS ARE ARROGANT AND BULLIES!!!
    THEY THINK THAT IF YOU ARE NOT IN THEIR CAMP THAT YOU ARE STUPID……WELL, THE LATEST JOB REPORT SAYS EVERYTHING ABOUT HIS ECONOMIC POLICIES. LOOKING FOR AN EXTENSION IS A SIGN OF DESPERATION. AND WE SMART PEOPLE (REPUBLICANS & INDEPENDENT VOTERS) KNOW BETTER THAN THAT. GO MITT AND GO PAUL……YAY

    @Mary:

    Really born in Hawaii…..so what was he doing in Indonesia where he went to school in the elementary years….did he, his mother and father relocated there when he was an infant???? do you know or have read his autobiography or biggraphy…if so what book????

    to Twinkle

    don’t be an idiot. try to use the intelligence you were given, i know it’s hard, but try ok. many children are born in the United States and educated in other countries. The United States Military, the State Department, and large Cooperations are full such children.

    PO’s mother was an Anthropologist who studied economic anthropology and rural development in Indonesia. now, i know that Anthropologist, economic, and rural development are hard words for someone like you to understand but you can google them. i’m sure google will use simple words that even you will get.

    like other parents, she chose to take her son with her on the job instead of leaving him in Hawaii to be raised by strangers. so, yes, Idiot PO spent his early years going to school in Indonesia. at the end of the day PO has had a first class education which you have not even come close to getting.

    Obama 2012!!!

    Advancing equal opportunity and economic empowerment is both morally right and good economics. Why? Because poverty, discrimination and ignorance restrict growth.

    MJ Says:

    to#76, If you think Romney did not pay taxes as what Harry Reid’s imaginary friend told him, I am sure even before he file to run in the office, the IRS already sees it if he did not. It is obviously is a lie because IRS did not go after him. And why oh! why you dems are going after Romney’s tax? It seems like you forgot how you forgave Charley Rangel and Tim Guitner who were obviously did not pay their taxes and yet they are still in the office. Hypocrisy much?

  13. 88
    Mary Says:

    to MJ

    Charley Rangel and Tim Guitner are not running for the office of the President of the United States. Mitt Romney is; as such he cannot even have the appearance of being in violation of the law. not paying taxes owed is a huge “no no” for a man who wants to be President. even you are intelligent enough to understand this.

  14. 89
    MJ Says:

    It’s funny how Bill Clinton said that no one, not even him can fix the mess that Obama inherited from Bush. Well, if Clinton is way better than Obama, then why we give Obama another 4 years? Obviously, Obama has no clue about the economy. Our country needs a leader who is a business like, knows how to budget, knows how to creates jobs, and not a lazy type leader. Simple philosophy that needed to apply. At home, when your parents doesn’t know how to budget their money, over spending than what they’ve earn, there is no doubt that your family is in big trouble. One of the reasons why couple divorce because of financial issues, either the wife or husband got tired of the other who over spent. We need a leader who knows how to BUDGET and that’s Romney with Ryan’s help.

  15. 90
    MJ Says:

    to#88, Just because someone is not running for president it doesn’t mean it’s okay for them not to pay their taxes. It’s still a Law dear. If Romney in deed did not pay his taxes, then what’s the IRS is doing? Surely, IRS has Romney’s tax record. So you meant, IRS did not do their jobs?

  16. 91
    MJ Says:

    Look, If you did not see how the dems managed their convention, it showed that they obviously doesn’t have any clue how to manage the economy. The dems convention was a mess even if they don’t have any reasons to, there was no threat of hurricane and yet they mismanaged it. It showed that if they mishandled their convention which is such a small task compare to the economy, then how can we be so sure that they can handle the economy? Ask yourself, pure and simple.

    @MJ:

    >>>>>>>>>>
    .
    MJ, Yes, Mitt Romney filed his tax returns and there were many legal ways to lower your taxes. And yes, Mitt Romney used these laws and stayed legal as he is entitled to do so the IRS can’t go after him.
    .
    But laws are not necessarily JUST or MORAL. Lobbyists funded by billionaires and millionaires and corporation who are people too, see to that. They want laws which benefit them and screw those who can’t afford a lobbyist.
    .
    History is replete with lessons of unfair laws benefitting rich people. Why don’t you look up Poor Laws, Corn Laws and Enclosure Laws in England in the 18th and 19th century. Read up about slavery laws – owning slaves was LEGAL.
    .
    Those who do not know their history are doomed to repeat them so read up about them.
    .
    Read about how wealthy farmers and aristocracy which controlled the House of Commons and the House of Lords introduced Corn Laws to keep the price of corn – a staple in England high. Read how the Enclosure Acts allowed the rich to enclose off land which were known as commons forcing millions of poor farm labourers and peasants to either work for a pittance or migrate to awful conditions in the cities. Read about the Rotten Boroughs and how the members of parliament in the House of Commons were often put there by the aristocracy so they voted to please the aristocrat who put them there.
    .
    Then read about how England was in a torment of unrest and riots until laws could be changed and the change in the laws allowed a more civil and equal society to be built. Read about the Swing Riots and the Luddites. Read about the harshness in which starving people were treated for stealing a loaf of bread. Read about being hanged, transported to Australia, thrown into prisons. At one stage there were so many prisoners, they had to be kept on barges on the water where many just died because of miserable conditions.
    .
    So, yes, no doubt Mitt Romney was legal in claiming his tax deductions, keeping his funds in bahamas and cayman, – as those who benefitted from Corn Laws and Enclosure Acts were legal and those owning slaves were legal. But were these laws FAIR AND MORAL?
    .
    But what Mitt doesn’t want to show you and the people when he says he believes in America and taxes should be lower for the wealth 1% is how he kept his taxes low:
    .
    (1) he got most of his remuneration as capital gain. Some of the brightest minds in the world are engaged in structuring private equity deals to ensure the lowest possible taxes are paid. I know this for a fact because I worked in a bank for a while. I know they fees the bank is willing to pay the tax advisors. So, legal, because they could afford the advice to keep their taxes lows. And those expenses paid to tax advisors are tax deductible in many jurisdictions.
    .
    (2) He sent a whole bunch of his money to sunny islands like Cayman, Bahamas and to less sunny islands like Jersey. All known tax havens.
    .
    And what did Mitt “I will bring jobs to America” Romney do with his tax savings?
    .
    Why, Mitt Romney invested in Global Funds and Emerging Market Funds. Global fund must invest its money globally, not just in America. Emerging Market Funds will invest ZERO money in America because America is NOT an emerging market.
    .
    As a millionaire running for presidency on a plat form that he believes in America, he’s creating jobs for America even as his money is invested abroad, but of course, he’s talking big about gonna hammer China and India for stealing jobs from America. But as always:
    .
    FOLLOW THE MONEY
    .
    Mitt’s money didn’t trickle down to America, it trickled OUT of America.
    .

    Charles Says:

    I love how some people are complaining about balancing the budget as if it’s easy as 1, 2, 3. Are you serious? Economics is harder than that, especially when you have to take into account the people who will suffer based on what you cut. This is real life, not a game.

    Some people cannot even balance their own check books consisting a few thousands dollars, please do not believe it’s easy to balance trillions in the red, especially when you it’s hard to find other avenues to generate the money. And let’s not forget we are in a time of war that we are already borrowing money to sustain. This is no joke, even Bill Clinton acknowledged how difficult the situation is. The President is chipping off the problem, little by little. We have to do our part as well.

    Obama gets my vote, not Romney who wants another war with Iran of all people!

  19. 94
    Carly Says:

    Romney is fake. A Wall Street type who believes every one can ask mommy and daddy to pay tuition. He also believes I’m lazy because I may need some tuition assistance. He lives in a different Universe. Ryan has serious issues with remembering the truth so he can forget about being the VP of the United States of America and his so-called budget for America is harsh and unrealistic if you take a closer look at the craziness he is proposing.

    Obama is doing a good job. Can he do better? Of course, he can.

    Texas Girl Says:

    @Twinkle:

    My employees are under a small business healthcare plan with very reasonable quotes. Every state including yours offer varying options based on need for small businesses. You must do the leg work if you care to find out and if you care about your staff. I could have opted to employ them strictly as independent contractors, but chose not to because it’s more of an incentive for them to get on board and the cost is minimal to me. Win-Win.

    By the way, you do not have to resort to name-calling to make a point or to make an inquiry. Calling people names like idiot does nothing but make people wonder about your own intelligence. In any event, be well. That’s it for me.

    Obama 2012 — My vote is my voice. It was not too long ago when women could not even vote.

    jonathan Says:

    The trolls are always the most negative people and they try to use baseless statements to support their madness. Unfortunately, they remind me of the tea partiers with their nonsense.

    I, too, will vote for Obama. I would not vote for Romney if he paid me.

  22. 97
    Ben Says:

    Romney talks about war like it’s no big deal. I’d like to ask him if he ever saw his sons off to war? Oh, no, of course he has not. At least Biden understands. The President empathizes. They are working feverishly to bring the rest of our men and women back to their families not rush them into another bloodshed aka Iran.

    Good speech. I value your strong stance on education! May God bless us all, Mr. President. 4 more years.

    as if there was a major difference between these two bought and sold figurehead douchebags… pffft ..We’ll all get more of the same and many will never figure out that the two party system is essentially one ..look, if you want to move a huge object safely,intact, you must slide it side to side,left, right, to get it where you want it to go…the desire to be on a winnig team,side,tribe, etc. is instinctive and those that are in real positions of power knowingly stoke the flames and get what they want ,while the peasants quarrel amongst themselves
