Romney is merely a liberal republican telling republican party-tards and idiots who don't pay attention to a candidate's past what they want to hear in order to try to get elected. Actions speak louder than words and his actions says he is no conservative. Had Romney's history as Massachusetts governor not contradicted everything he said he believes in today I and many other people would have voted for Romney.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Had Romney not contradicted everything he said from one day to the next, more people would have voted for him.

    And I'll have you know that although I'm quite liberal, I shower almost every day.

    There was more to it than that...Paul Ryan their attacks on govt workers, they lost votes here they lost votes there and it all accumulated.

    Lets get one thing straight here ok...to get back to the title of the thread...To say Acorn Stole the elections implies that black people stole the election from Romny by having black voters that werent qualified to vote vote....Blacks are 14% of the population...its ridiculous even if some blacks voted that werent eligible...the WHITE voters that voted for romney that werent eligible and shouldnt have voted more than over compensated for it....they math does not add up...what does add up is the entire republican establishment is blaming their spanking on everything and everyone except the far right teaparty who actually DID lose the election for them...

    .... that would all depend on which side of the issue he actually settled on... I do admit, however, that I am going to miss the Romney-Romney debates. They may have been the highlight of the 2012 election season.

    Know what the romney that we saw running for president...I dont believe is the real Mitt Romney. Yes hes a very rich man..so what ? Yes he hurt working people in his business dealings...so does my landscaper...Mitt Romney has compassion for people, I believe that, he showed that as gov of massuchusetts. Mitt Romeny allowed the big pacs The Krotch Brothers...Karl Rove and Adelsen and the Jim Demints and Grover Norquists FORCE him to the right were he was unnatural..and he came across phony as a 3.00 bill...if it wasnt for the total freak show of a primary with the runway of parading idiots and his being forced to the right and forced to take Paul Ryan...romney would have won by a big margin...and I really believe that.

    At least, no more or no less than having a social safety net. Unlike those that vote for social programs, those that vote themselves tax breaks can personally assess the individual value of that benefit. Romney voters knew, with considerably more precision, the personal financial benefit of a Romney vote than Obama voters... hence, were more likely bought.

    This silliness notwithstanding, the question of what should be within the commons (what government should spend money upon) and how it should be paid for (or how we should tax and spend our collective wealth) are valid questions in any election. Sorry, for you, the more people see the value of a social safety net than a lean tax structure.
    that is idiotic. tax cuts mean you have less taken from you that you already earned. ONLY WHEN THE TOP ONE PERCENT PAY LESS THAN ONE PERCENT of the tax bill would tax cuts for the top 1% become HANDOUTS

    No, what is idiotic to to assume there is no cost to participation in a society and the every dollar of gross income belongs to you. Participating in a society or being a citizen in a country comes with a degree of social responsibility that we collectively share in the cost and the benefit...

    Think of your country as a franchise, which provides the fundamental infrastructure (including roads, bridges, airports and an FAA so you can move about; military, police, courts and a banking system to protect your property; an FDA/FTC to protect your food, water and drugs; colleges and universities to educate, develop knowledge and create new things) under which you are free to be an entrepreneur, including getting to keep most, but not all, of what your reap. After all, there is a fee to play and the fee goes up with your success.... and, of course, like a franchise, when the fee gets big, you get cocky and forget from whence you came.

    the benefits are essentially the same for everyone and as long as the rich are still paying more than the average citizen they are NOT GETTING HANDOUTS

    Don't you mean that the top 1% would pay a percentage of the tax bill equal to their share of total income?

    I.E. if the top 1% takes home 20% of the income, they "should" pay 20% of the taxes, by your standard?

    Or do you actually mean 1% of the population should always pay 1% of the taxes, regardless of income?
