    IMO, blatant comments such as these show the disrespect that Obama has for ingenuity, resourcefulness, and hard work. I do not think comments such as these will benefit him among independent and other swing voters.

    Also, I find it interesting that no other major news outlet other than Fox News picked up this story. Interesting, but not surprising.

    Quoting Obama,

    Obama to business owners: 'You didn't build that' | Fox News
    Obama is a fool. He does not understand or appreciate the free-enterprise system.

    He is nothing more than a "community organizer" who knows absolutely nothing about what it takes to run a successful business or a for-profit neighborhood lemonade stand!


    Obama sincerely believes the "government" is the "be-all" and the "end-all" of everyone's success!

    In the next 25 years, more than 77 million baby boomers will retire. They will begin collecting checks from Social Security, drawing benefits from Medicare, and relying on Medicaid for long-term care.

    As of now, 70 percent of the federal government’s budget goes to individual assistance programs, up dramatically in just the past few years. However, research shows that private, community, and charitable aid helps individuals rise from their difficulties with better success than federal government handouts. Plus, local and private aid is often more effectively distributed.

    we should all be hostile to tyranny over the mind of man, and LYING about your opponent to get votes is tyranny.
    What does it say about us when we are eager and willing to believe ANYTHING BAD said about the politicians we don't like.
    It is laziness at the least, especially when there is so much truth that is even more damaging. But a lot of politicians have so many skeletons in their closets that they have to be careful what they say as backlash is always a possibility.
    Clear enough?

    Why would most moderate Democrats want to vote for someone who doesn't appeal to so many in his own party?

    Hell, who knows Romney better than his own state of Massachusetts? And they don't want him!

    Maybe. There is that conservative hope. But his record may nto appeal to as many as some hope. He does dance rather all over the place.

    Well according to many on this site we need moderates you are willing to negotiate with the other side. Now we will see. Romney was able to get things done in a legislature dominated by the other party. Obama has proven a failure in this regard.

    What we need is the understanding that good work comes through compromise.

    Sounds like you are saying that Democrats are more willing to compromise and work with the other party than are Republicans.
