    If things aren't going to get better, maybe they feel Obusha will be more sympathetic to them as they struggle.

    Just an opinion, of course.
    I think that's probably it. Romney's whole thing has been "No really, I know this economy stuff. Trust me." While I'd tend to believe him somewhat, for a lot of people "Trust me" or "At least I'm different" aren't going to cut it. Especially after buying into "Hope" and "Change," "Trust me" ain't enough.

    He opens his mouth and he finds himself in trouble.....we can't afford a president who doesn't know when to keep his mouth shut or fails to know how to speak with tact.....every time he opens his mouth he manages to insult groups of American people or our foreign allies.

    Anyway, it's obvious that you would rather rank on me than talk about the topic of this thread and, since I'm tired of your shennanigans, as I do with you liberals so often, I'll dismiss your posts.
    You just stated you opinion is a fact:

    Such as the fact that Obama's whole campaign has been based on deflecting from his record toward all the inconsequential or false issues he can concoct about Romney and such as the media's tendency to splash these bogus issues that Obama comes up with all over the news while hardly mentioning any attempt by Romney to address Obama's record or the issues that are really of interest to the People.
    Why do you present an opinion as a fact?

    I wasn't complaining about anything. I was answering the OP's question.
    How to pay for increases in government spending while cutting taxes at the same time when we are fueled by debt is a "non-issue?" Seriously?

    Neither one of them has a clue or a plan. Neither one offers up honesty. This is a struggle for power and has nothing to do with making America better.

    Yep. It's a non-issue in respect to my comments in this thread.

    You said "a trick question for a non-issue" the question was regarding how Romney plans to pay for all his promises, so you were referring to that not your comments in this thread which you hadn't mentioned before this point. And trying to imply that meaning to your original post is completely silly, it makes no sense whatsoever.

    Why is it that Romney must come up with every single metric in his campaign, when Obama won't even articulate what his own record is, much less what he plans to do?
