In a tight Presidential race, anything can make a difference -- even Meat Loaf's butchering of "America the Beautiful." So we gotta ask....

Romney Invested in Companies in China & has His Money in other Countries too, Trump has His Clothing Line making everything in China, There is a reason why Romney has only 1.6 Million Twitter Followers, Trump has 1.7 Million & Barry H. Obama has 21.4 Million...

The one question i had a hard time with was #3 Gloria Alred October surprise, on one hand it is interesting to see how mitt evalutated staples stock on the other hand it was a huge bust. At this point no one cares and no one wants to take the time to go through it. You have to lie to evaluate stock to take it public and all through the election mitt has taken every side on every issue no one cares anymore,

It's a race to the grave between Trump and Allred, to see who can make a bigger fool of themselves. Allred was in the lead, but Trump is gaining fast.

Economic growth under Obama: anemic
Federal deficit has grown 5 trillion since in office

Stimulus plan which was passed to keep unemployment under 8%, total failure

Obama appointed a bipartisan deficit commission to tackle our debt but decided not to sell it to Congress nor the public.

Federal government almost came to a default this yr, with more spending cuts and HIGHER TAXES for all Americans come Jan 1.

After the debates, Obama finally put together a 20 page plan for his 2nd term, it was mostly filled with nice pictures.

Obama needs to be fired on Nov 6.

Romney’s problem: The economy is, in fact, improving


In North Carolina yesterday, vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan continued to hit President Obama on the question of whether Americans are better of now than when Obama took office —“He can’t tell you that you’re better off…Simply put, the Jimmy Carter years look like the good old days compared to where we are now.”


Ignoring, for a moment, the fact that the economy isn’t as bad as it was in 1980, there’s a problem with Ryan’s rhetoric—his running mate doesn’t agree. Earlier this year, in an interview with conservative radio host Laura Ingraham, Mitt Romney agreed that the economy was in fact getting better:


INGRAHAM: You’ve also noted that there are signs of improvement on the horizon in the economy. How do you answer the president’s argument that the economy is getting better in a general election campaign if you yourself are saying it’s getting better?


ROMNEY: Well, of course it’s getting better. The economy always gets better after a recession, there is always a recovery. […]


INGRAHAM: Isn’t it a hard argument to make if you’re saying, like, OK, he inherited this recession, he took a bunch of steps to try to turn the economy around, and now, we’re seeing more jobs, but vote against him anyway? Isn’t that a hard argument to make? Is that a stark enough contrast?


ROMNEY: Have you got a better one, Laura? It just happens to be the truth.


In fairness to Romney, this interview was given in January, when 243,000 jobs were added to the economy. At that point, there was speculation that the United States would see a more robust recovery in 2012, which would have made Romney’s job more difficult — it’s hard to run against an in***bent president when the economy is on the upswing.


As it stands, growth slowed in the middle of the year, and job growth seems to have stabilized at roughly 150,000 jobs a month — just enough to keep the unemployment rate from rising. This provides an easier opening for Romney, but to a large degree, he still runs into the problem he encountered at the beginning of the year. GOP rhetoric notwithstanding, things are better than they were when Obama took office. The economy isn’t in freefall, and we’re slowly on the path to recovery. As a campaign message, “Obama failed” doesn’t ring true to voters; if anything, the critique is that he didn’t do enough.


With a plan for short-term economic growth, Romney could square the circle of acknowledging improvement but giving voters a reason to abandon the president. “I can create faster growth than what you’ve seen from the president.”But unlike President Obama—who still touts the American Jobs Act—Romney doesn’t have a solution for improving the immediate situation; at most, he has a wish list of policies that Republicans pursue regardless of economic conditions: tax cuts, deregulation and reduced social spending. Voters seem to be aware of this—according to the most recent ABC News/Washington Post poll, only 33 percent say that cutting taxes would create jobs.


Romney is stuck. The economy simply isn’t bad enough to give him a solid advantage, and voters don’t seem to believe that Obama has “failed.” He can hit Obama on the “better off” question, but the message sounds muddled on account of the economic improvement he acknowledged earlier this year. And without a compelling plan or narrative to give to the public, it’s hard to imagine how he convinces a undecided voters to join his side.

I really don't care who a celebrity endorses....the money that they demand or get for making a movie or TV show could feed the hungry. I hate all this mud slinging that's been happening in this election.

By the way, I voted early so now I muted the TV when a political commercial comes on the air.

ROMNESIA QUOTE


"There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it -- that that's an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what. ... These are people who pay no income tax. ... [M]y job is not to worry about those people. I'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives."


47% PAYS PAYROLL TAX, STATE, LOCAL, SALES, GAS, PROPERTY TAXES AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN!!!!!


AND HE IS STRICTLY TALKING ABOUT "YOU"!!!!
