    Well, I don't know how credible Mitt Romney himself is, but nonetheless I think he's a valid source regarding my point.

    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Obama has had 4 years to help correct the problem you cite. What has he done?

    Compared to 4 years ago today, we have 3.5 million fewer American jobs and 11.5 million more Americans. This kind of math may not be Trickle Down, but it should be just a tad terrifying to anyone, no matter how partisan.

    You cite the results of trickle down economics/ financial deregulation and excessive military spending, and that expect people to want more of the same? LOL!

    It's like having taken your car to a mechanic for 4 years and every year it costs more and never gets fixed. A new shop opens up in the neighborhood. Why not try out the new guy? You know the old guy can't do it and can't admit it.

    By now, you've got to start worrying if your car can take much more.
    Yes, Obama has been bad. I'm just saddened the only other person who can actually win is a flip-flopping, war mongering jackass with no real solutions.

    The Big 0 couldn't work with Democrats and couldn't work with Republicans. Mitt got the job done as a governor with an opposition legislature. We know one guy can't/won't do it and we know one guy will at least try.
    I wasn't saying that Romney wasn't able or willing to try, I am saying that whoever wins is going to not be able to pass any legislation because of how the Senate and House are currently. I have no doubt that if elected Romney will try and work with the Dems, its just they might not be willing to work with him. And same vise versa.
