    So would I. But even most of the ad's I have ever seen that talk about their successes are most often half truths as well.

    I didn't see a "don't care" option so I didn't vote...

    Before you said he wouldn't be able to make any ads on his accomplishments, and he already has, proving you wrong.

    I don't think the ad is honest, but whether it's fair or not, I'll leave that for others to judge.

    The ad muddies the real story about Romney and Bain, so I'll give it a big thumbs down.

    Sounds fair to me. The ad didn't demand that Romney show his birth certificate, even though his father and family were living in Mexico. The "birthers" will be squealing, don't you think?

    No, I don't think there's anything wrong with the ad. It's more or less true so we may as well get this out in the open, now, and deal with it.

    Media will always take the basics and bundle them into a neat package for easy consumption. For those that know what venture capitalists do and don't do it's just facing the accented truth. Some are raiders and that's a necessary part of the system. If you understand the system, even a little bit, it isn't a surprise - but it does "sound bad" on TV, doesn't it?

    Scumbags that buy companies just because they have enough money to do that...and buy it with the intent of just crashing it and without any consideration for the many people they hurt and sometimes destroy in the process for a buck...are ALL THATS WRONG with our system and they are the lowest of life forms.....thats how I see it.....and the gop wants to give these kinds of pigs another tax cut and the workers they hurt badly...the gop wants to make them pay more for medicare and have less social security to give the rich another tax cut....
    A confusing rant ?
    Not, IMO, it made sense to me....and this is no easy task...
    But, then, I am biased against the tea-bagging conservatives.
