Here’s What Mitt Won’t Tell You: President Obama Is Winning

Here’s What Mitt Won’t Tell You: President Obama Is Winning

Mitt Romney says he’s “winning.” So did Charlie Sheen.

It’s an old Karl Rove strategy. But it just isn’t true.

In this morning’s Politico Playbook, Mike Allen points out the facts:

A cold shower for the GOP: Most polling shows Romney trailing in Ohio, Wisconsin, Nevada, New Hampshire and Iowa—by MORE than Obama trails in North Carolina.

The fact is that if the president wins in Ohio, Wisconsin and Iowa or Nevada, he wins. He is up in all of these states, especially in polls that include people who only have cell phones.

The Washington Post‘s Greg Sargent adds:

Another factoid no one will discuss: The race is tighter in VA than in OH. But somehow it’s been decided that Romney has won VA.

Republican’s deluding themselves into thinking they’re winning isn’t just a feature of their Republican brains, it’s a strategy. They know swing voters tend to vote for the winner. But the winner according to the best estimates is still looking like President Obama.

Even ‘Moderate’ Republicans Are Bent On Sabotage

Scott Brown is a Veep character who thinks he’s on House of Cards. After becoming the first Republican elected in the Tea Party wave of 2010, his greatest accomplishment as a U.S. senator was helping banks rewrite Wall Street reform so it might protect “two financial institutions in Massachusetts from the Volcker Rule’s restrictions,” according to former

Secondly, government officials sometimes may use talking points

    I can only hope that you are right, Mr. Massey, because I am starting to lose hope. I am utterly shocked by how close this race is – and how vitriolic (amongst the voters). I am astounded that such a large number of voters can just turn a blind eye to who Romney really is, and how disastrous it could be for us if he is elected president.
    I place my full faith in Obama’s ability to keep us moving forward as a country.

    • Sand_Cat

      Never would have thought that any of the deranged cretins put forward by the GOP would be within 50 points of Obama, even though he’s been a huge disappointment. I guess I never learn.

      • DownriverDem

        Obama has not been a huge disappointment to me. Repubs in House and Senate should be charged with treason.

        • JJ Gallaher

          You’ve hit the nail on the head with a hammer there pal.

        • Stephen Duplantier

          Quick fantasy: After Obama’s victory, Repubs go apeshit. House will do nothing. House Repubs declared treasonous. Are arrested. Sent to Guantanamo (which is why O didn’t close it).

      • http://twitter.com/Buckimion Buckimion

        “Huge” may be going a bit too far but yeah, I would have liked to have seen a bit more toughness out of the President in regards to congress. Here’s hoping the second term can be summed up as “No more Mr. Nice Guy.”

      • http://www.facebook.com/denyse.pez Denyse Pez

        I will believe for a second that those are the correct numbers. whats worse now that the Romney’s have bought those electronic Voting machines who nos what control they will mean for those GOP Bastards. The Gop put 1 Billion buck into Romney’s campaign and all those TV adds listen my Government in Canada stole our election and the vote was only 39% so I just wanna warn that these Conservatives are the worst liars cheats and all around idiots that I pray won’t win as it is my government is counting on Romney’s win those two would be the worst thing for our Countries …..

        • ConcernedinCA2012

          How about Obama’s $1 billion? He has raised as much money as the Romney. Let’s face it all you liberal whiners, Obama’s presidency is a failure. It has nothing to do with the color of his skin, he is just not qualified for the job. I’m not a conservative nutjob but when someone can’t do the work, get him out of there!

          • pbrower2a

            I know of two people in Hell who wish that Barack Obama wee not President. Qaddafi and Osama bin Laden.

          • mrbeenie

            Face it, Obama’s Presidency has been a success, despite all those Republicans assholes who tried to stop him from getting anything done. I probably do not even have to list Obama’s success’s, like the ACA, or hunting down and killing Bin Laden, or signing the Lily Ledbetter Act, or bringing the unemployment rate down to 7.8 percent, after saving the economy from the disasterous job that the last Republican Administration did.

            Repeating the same, lame, moronic conservative talking points will not win you this election. And you sound far more like a whiner than anyone else I have seen here.

    • DownriverDem

      Let’s be honest. This is about race more than we want to admit. Sick white repubs are scared to death that white folks are shrinking in size. I say it’s a good thing. (I am white)

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jo-Hargis/100002882420472 Jo Hargis

        Yes, and the most pitiful aspect of this is that it doesn’t matter what they do to protest the fact that the white population is shrinking, they cannot stop it. So all this CRAP they’re doing will all be for naught. This country will never EVER go toward eliminating the rights of minorities and women and LGBT to vote and participate fully in democracy. So, all this GOP teeth gnashing is ridiculous and will not gain them a thing in the end. On the contrary, it will likely gain US something good: the end of the GOP. I see no way in hell with changing demographics and the radical religious elements of the GOP that they can survive indefinitely, unless they do a massive restructuring. I just don’t see that happening.

        Throughout the history of this country, it’s always been the progressive movement that has moved this country forward, and nothing is going to change that. We always win in the end, over the conservative “we don’t want progress, we just want a plutocracy” faction. It may take time, we may hit stumbling blocks, but we always win.

        • http://www.facebook.com/steve.hamilton.96995 Steve Hamilton

          I agree.

          The people managing the GOP have fallen asleep at the switch (ala General Motors) and have allowed their constituency to move to the radical right (the misnamed Tea Party, e.g.), and unless the party restructures its base to the kind of mix that Eisenhower enjoyed, the party will segue into a “Rump Party’ by the end of 2013, and will no longer be relevant at the national level.

      • QuayLewd69

        I’m NOT white. I am, in fact, “Latino”. But describing white folks shrinking in size as a “good thing”? Wow. Who are you pandering to? Other white, PC, self-loathing, so-called “liberals”? Not an appealing feature at all.

        • Adlib

          It’s not white, PC, self-loathing “liberals”…it’s called *reality* – and the ability to accept it.

          • QuayLewd69

            It’s self-loathing and pseudo-progressive, and that’s all there is to it. Good day to you, Sir/Ma’am.

      • Alex R

        You LIBS always have to play the race card. It has nothing to do with race and everything to do with the Economy, remember “its the economy stupid” as true then as it is today. The one fact and is is a fact Obama has been an unmitigated disaster. In the words of Bog Bird the letter O and the number $16 Trillion nuff said.

          The trouble with that is the economic theories of the GOP are pure make-believe. If everyone had to do economics in high school nobody would vote for those policies atall.

          • norishman

            Meh, then the GOP will just blame the education system of being Liberal and biased – although I wholeheartedly agree with you (being someone who took a high school AP Economics class and refers to those notes often).

            Well one thing we do know is that Obama’s polocies don’t work.

          • http://www.facebook.com/steve.hamilton.96995 Steve Hamilton

            I think all the people working for GM, or its suppliers, would disagree with you. When Obama took the oath, no-one knew how badly America’s economic system had been damaged by his predecessor ( who, BTW will end up in US History books for at least the next decade, as America’s worst president ever, replacing Herbert Hoover). In spite of the intransigence of the GOP controlled House, he managed to push through a stimulus bill that, although too small, did manage to save several hundred thouc=sand existing jobs.

          • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_IAZ3NOKTEK7GNRIDGC2DM6A4TI Bernardo Stevens

            The people working for GM? Sure, Obama confiscated tens of billions from the rest of us and gave it to the auto unions. Good for them. Bad for the rest of us.

            Right now, Jeep is saying that any NEW jobs will be in China. And FIAT is saying they’re considering moving Jeep’s American production to goddamn Italy! Yup, it’s true.

            So will GM ever pay us back the money we lent them? Or the one-of-a-kind tax break worth estimated $45 billion that Obama gave GM so they could pretend to be profitable?

          • Bobjlv

            Unbelievable that you can say that with a straight face. Even the Chrysler CEO made a statement saying the jobs are going to be added to China, and Jeeps will still be made in the USA. I guess you didn’t get the memo that GM has also paid back the US with interest. You must be watching too much Fox News.

          • disqus_vuZsLbp2dM

            You’re a liar. Just like Mitt Romney. No one is moving ANY jobs to China, and the auto-makers themselves are saying so. How people can fall for this man’s lying, twisted words is beyond me. Or are you one of those die hard GOP fools who would vote a goat to the white house if you could?

          • http://www.facebook.com/people/Lauro-Andrea/1439990992 Lauro Andrea

            As even his supporters say: the ideas were sound but he wasn’t aggressive enough about it. It’s the same guy that showed up for the first debate.
            Man I hope this time around that he stops being ‘everyman’s’ president and just get right down to it.

          • http://twitter.com/dw_ai dw ai

            One thing that I know is not to take your political opinion seriously if you can’t even spell ‘policies’ correctly.

          • http://www.facebook.com/people/Lauro-Andrea/1439990992 Lauro Andrea

            One thing we know too, you don’t know economics and you can’t spell.

          • disqus_vuZsLbp2dM

            Really? After four long, hard years of getting the US out of the unbelievable quagmire the GOP put it in? I think he’s done a decent job. Could have been better, but the numbers are better than when he became president. If Mitt Romney becomes president, God help the US.

          • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_IAZ3NOKTEK7GNRIDGC2DM6A4TI Bernardo Stevens

            Quite the contrary. The policies and schemes tried by Obama and company have been tried over and over and have never succeeded.

          • Alex R

            Sorry we will have to agree to disagree. My preference right know would be a for man that knows at least a little about running a business, balancing a budget and bringing all sides together for the good of the country. Neither of which comes close when your only claim to fame is being a community organizer. As for Obama’s work in the senate well a 2 year stint and take a look at this achievements there where he was No.1 on the hit list for being the most liberal of the 100. He has spent $6 Trillion and at a greater rate than Bush ever did and the stimulus well lets not go there as that is the biggest joke to have ever been played on the American people. Obama has zero credibility. Yes, he can talk or sorry no read a Teleprompter but personally I would prefer someone with a bit more business acumen and someone that can create JOBS something Obama clearly can’t as proven just look at the last four years. Nuff said I think.

          Mitt is a coward. Why is he refusing to do any interviews? Just like when he went to serve his cult in Paris during the Viet Nam war Not once did he mention the veterans during the convention nor his last debate. Shows where his mind is set. Bankers and hedge fund buddies cut their taxes.

          The economy is better than under Bush. Polls show that if Bill Clinton was running, he would win 60% to 40%. Obama has virtually the same policies as Clinton except Obamacare which was really Romneycare. Obama is winning everywhere but the deep south where he loses by 20 points. I guess we know what values these southern “values voters” have.

The race card was invented to prevent people of color from thinking and saying what is true about individuals who think like you and many others in this country. Hate is hate .. The world is watching this dumb crap that’s going on here in America. We are quick to go into another country and tear it down in the name of defending , womens rights , tribal rights , and any other rights. When this country ain’t right and refuses to set the example of getting it right. Some of us know the difference and try to make a change , but you won’t change and know the difference….

It is simple and truly a racial issue with the conservative GOP. There is just no way that able minded humans can buy into the horse manure bandied around by Romney…admit it. Admit to Mitt being a big nitcompoop.

          • Alex R

            Please, please this is not a race issue. The man was elected and we all know that would NOT have happened had not a very large portion of whites voted for him. Its really about time liberal stopped playing the race card its frankly disingenuous and insults peoples intelligence.

        • http://www.facebook.com/steve.hamilton.96995 Steve Hamilton

          It is the economy stupid, and the sitting president’s predecessor is the guy who ruined, and almost cratered it. “W” is also the reason our debt level has grown so much. If you knew anything about accounting, you would know the difference between accrual and cash accounting. George W. ran up the bills and now the current administration has to pay them. Obama is like a guy who gets divorced and then finds out his ex-wife ran up $100,000 on his credit cards, in bills at Saks and Niemans. He has to pay the bills or watch his FICO drop 400 to 500 points.

          • Alex R

            We could be into the why’s and wherefores regarding accounting but I do not see the point. Obama has added $6 Trillion to the national debt! When he came to power it was $10 Trillion. In my post and made not reference to Bush that came from you I am not looking to the past but to the future. I tell you for more years of Obama is not a pretty sight from where I stand and I am no republican.

        • dldlqqq

          Everyone with an ounce of intelligence knows full well that the dive the economy took in 2008 was nothing but a giant snowball rolling down hill thanks to eight previous years of idiotic Bush policies. It has taken four years to slow the thing down, bring it to a halt and start forcing it back up hill. The reason Repubs are so determined to get into office now that things are finally turning back around is so they can take the credit now that things are on the up-tick. But God is not going to let it happen. You just wait and see. And we don’t have to place the race card. Read the headlines: they play it for us! Constantly having to clean up slipped remarks that show how they really feel. If Romney flip flops his stance any more time than he has in the past two months, he’s going to find himself on the feet of beach bum!

        • Cyndieaa

          Alex, really. Bush set off the bomb. Obama saved us from going off the cliff. Is you memory so short you do not remember what a hole Bush shoved us into? Two wars he privatized and made the government pay for so Halliburton could make tons of money? Really, you do not remember? That must be frightening to be losing your mind.

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Lauro-Andrea/1439990992 Lauro Andrea

          16 trillion included the wars which magically surfaced in the books in 2008!!! It was written with magic GOP ink….
          Oh yes, Bush created jobs with really shit pay and almost zip benefits….its called military deployment!
          Where did the Republicans take the surplus that Bubba saved for us?
          See I believe the Clinton way because it worked just like the Obama way. I know because, I have been working since the Bush and Reagan years.
          I know economics because I taught it and lived it. I watched while the Asian economic crisis took apart Asia while America’s economy held strong. People weren’t buying gold. They were buying US dollars because the main indicators in America were so strong during the Clinton years.
          I watched Obama’s policies and my only complaint is that he wasn’t aggressive enough with them. But his policies will usher in the same Clinton magic because it makes sense. It worked before and it will work again.
          However Romney’s economic policy is the same bonehead policy that Bush II implemented. Combine that with the hawks breathing down his neck and you have a recipe for another war the world doesn’t need.
          So when you said, ITS THE ECONOMY STUPID- you must have been talking to yourself.

Maybe if your party hadnt spent the last 4 years blocking anything the President wanted to do to help the country things would be even better now. Romney has no core values or beliefs. Tell me what he believes in today and I’ll bet you a hundred bucks I can find a polar opposite opinion he makes about that same issue. He has no bedrock foundation and he is a supreme liar. Not to mention he belongs to a cult.

Look I’m not saying we are better off today but at least With Pres. Obama you can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Plus you know He’s the president of the 100% unlike mitt who’s not concerned with 47% of the Country.

          Its about the economy stupid thats why you have seen one of the largest increase in job numbers in years over the last few months. Not the loss of jobs under Mr Bush. You are right it is about the economy stupid.

        • jediprince123

          I no longer could sit on the sidelines anymore and this is my first post ever on a website of any kind. Thank you CNN. Anyway, I would like to talk to the middle class republicans who are supporting Mitt Romney over Obama and ask what you see in Gov. Romney that many democrats do not. And is your support based upon sound facts or because of the same reason why former Gov. Sununu said was the reason why former General Powell supports President Obama? This is not to bash the republicans but to have some rational person put this in perspective. President Obama is from the middle class and has those roots. He appears to understand many of the American financial problems and the emotional and sometimes physical destruction, a lack of financial independence can have on a person’s soul. He inherited two wars from the Bush administration based in large part of the 9 11 attacks. However, neither Iraq nor Afghanistan had anything to do with destroying our buildings and the American spirit. It was Osama Bin laden and his terrorist organization. Be that as it may, we spent billions of dollars that Congressman Ryan voted for before the tea party days with no fiscal solution of how to recoup this money, our tax payer money. We went from a projected surplus under President Clinton to massive deficits under the financial death grip of those two wars that Speaker Boehner and Congressman Ryan voted to authorize for former President Bush. Case in point Senator Obama voted against the wars. Anyway, President Obama inherited an economic situation where we were losing over 700,000 jobs a month, dozens of business going out of business, and the stock market crashing every day. The dow average was 8,500 down from an all time high of 14,100 and American morale was low. Before Obama was sworn in he made a bipartisan trip to Capitol Hill and met with republicans to get things moving before he became president. The senate minority leader Mitch McConnell said his number one objective is to make President Obama a one term president. Even after the harsh attack from Senator McConnell, the president continued to try to incorporate republican principles into legislation they would support. Case in point: healthcare. The individual mandate idea was a republican idea. Congressman Gingrich supported it. Many republicans supported it and we all know Gov. Romney’s position on the subject. They all said it was important that the health care system not be free and everyone needed to pay their fare share. Senator Obama was against the idea of an individual mandate when he was running for president. But in a bi-partisan effort, he included that in the bill and yet, every single republican voted against it. In essence they all said no to every proposal no matter how reasonable of an offer he made. The economic principles were horrible and we wanted a president to fix it. However, under the constitution of the United States, doesn’t congress enact legislation which appropriate money to fix solutions? And if congress does not act, the president can’t either? Paul Ryan says the president did nothing to solve the jobs crisis. However, didn’t President Obama call a joint session of congress last year to address the problems of jobs but was told by Speaker Boehner to come back another day because they were busy doing procedural work and couldn’t deal with the President? And to this day, the jobs bill is stuck in a congressional committee. Throughout his presidency, Obama dealt with name calling by politicians such as attacks from Gov. Brewer of Arizona, being called “lazy” and “un-american” by Sununu, a “retard” by Ann coulter, a secretive person by Donald Trump and a ‘food stamp” loving person by Newt Ginrich. Yet despite the utter disrespect shown to him and his office, he still tried to fix the economic problems of America without the support of Congress who are the ones under the constitution to be the actual problem solvers. Yet the country came back. Not roaring back. Yet how could it if the ones charged under the constitution to fix it refuse to do so? The jobs are coming back. The auto industry is back. The stock market is one thousand points away from the all time high again. Health care coverage for people is here so you could follow your own economic dreams instead of working for peanuts for someone else who offers you cut rate insurance for your immediate family for the great pleasure of making your owner rich. Bin Laden is gone. The terrorist organizations are leaving. Why change? We can see what this president has done. If he did all these things without republican support in his first term, imagine what he can do in his second term when republicans just have to accept he is the president. He said what he would do and he did it. The things he couldn’t foresee like unemployment being around 5 percent at the end of his first term, seems bad. But when he said that he did not think the republicans would block every bill he introduced? He thought they would, like him, compromise. Mitt Romney has changed his mind so many times it is difficult to understand. And yes he is a business leader. But doesn’t a president need to be more than that? George W. Bush was the only president in history to have a MBA and how did that turn out? When the car industry was dying, his industry, he offered to let it go bankrupt. This was not supposed to be another company he gobbled. These were his friends: His father’s friends: His community. He didn’t offer to help. He said let them go. Sometimes isn’t being a leader more about having a one track mind? Isn’t a leader supposed to understand that not everything comes down to dollars and cents? Don’t we want a leader who understands our problems? Is it true that in order to fix problems you have to first understand it? The republicans talk about not knowing Obama but do we really know Romney? We don’t know his money, where it went, where it came from and more importantly where it goes? Is he in business with China? We don’t know. He says he will close loopholes but fails to tell us which loopholes he will close to balance the budget. Is he going to close the mortgage tax deduction for middle class homeowners and leave the wealthy charitable deduction in place? We don’t know. And yes, Gov. Romney has business experience running companies but not creating them. He is a vulture capitalist not a business creator. He doesn’t start companies he raids them clean them up and ships them out. Is he going to raid our tax payer money and ship our jobs to China? Please give me more information about Romney if you have it because I would like to know. Lastly, about this recent tragedy where the ambassador was killed, the republicans are blaming Obama, but for what? I don’t understand. And were they republican cries when President Bush lied to us after wasting billions of our money in a useless war to stop a dictator for having weapons of mass destruction that never existed. Please help us all see how Gov. Mitt Romney is a better alternative to President Obama. Thank you.

            A ten minute google search could probably answer most of your questions. Obviously your to lazy to do that. By the way,Bush correctly noted how “more than a hundred Democrats in the House and the Senate – who had access to the same intelligence – voted to support removing Saddam Hussein from power.” In a speech attacking anti-war activists, Bush noted, “Many of these critics supported my opponent [Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry] during the last election, who explained his position to support the resolution in the Congress this way: ‘When I vote to give the President of the United States the authority to use force, if necessary, to disarm Saddam Hussein, it is because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a threat and a grave threat, to our security.'”

      Potentially Ominous Sign For Romney In Today’s Gallup Numbers

      While the twitter-verse was ablaze with the news that Romney seized the lead in Gallup’s tracker of likely voters, the underlying data hinted at troubling news for Romney. After making big gains among registered voters following the debates, Gallup’s most recent days of tracking have shown a shift back in the president’s direction, with Obama returning to pre-debate levels.

      It’s not nearly as close as they want you to believe, I think. It would be a bad news day if they media couldn’t whip up excitement by claiming the race is close.

      One thing new to me in this article: Obama leads “in polls that include people who only have cell phones.” That’s right, most polls only call landlines. But who do you know who doesn’t have a cell phone? And don’t you know quite a few people without a landline?

    I do not trust the polls, the pollsters are all bought and paid for. Most of them do not include people who do not have land lines. Their sampling can be questioned and how scientific can they be if they all show such a wide difference in results? Of Obama has such a wide lead with women, Hispanics, and Blacks how can the polls show them as neck and neck. Does not make sense. something is very wrong with the polls this election.

    And, sadly, they are part of a very large group… one that is truly destroying and dividing this country. I’m really praying that President Obama wins another decisive victory and gets a majority back in Congress so he can accomplish more… and that the Tea Baggers get another definitive message that the majority of the American people will not tolerate their lies, fear-mongering and bigotry.

    If not, I really don’t want to live here anymore. We barely survived 8 years of W, and we’re still far from recovered from his mess. We will definitely not survive even 4 years of Willard. Oh, the country will still be around, but it won’t be the free country I thought I grew up in. I don’t want to live in the Bain/Deseret States of America, whether I’m in the serf or overlord caste.

    Well President Obama could put an end to this supposed narrative strategy in a single day, but instead he isn’t. So either he doesn’t think it matters or he’s just hoping in vain Jim Lehrer pipes up and notes that it isn’t true. I don’t personally think it matters at all, one of the first truths I learned being a political junkie is that if you’re actually going to vote your mind is made up no fewer than three weeks before election day. The President has a huge electoral college lead and I bet will still win the popular vote by over 1%.

    Readers here are probably aware, but just in case, check out statistician Nate Silver’s Five Thirty Eight blog. His model has been proven exceptionally accurate (he called 49 of 50 states correctly last time, and all 35 senate races). He’s had Obama’s chances of winning at about 70% or more for quite some time. Contrary to what Thurston’s lying liars proclaim, Obama is quite heavily favored. That message needs to be broadcast further as election day approaches.

    Here the reality folks either Obama is going to win in a close race or Romeny is going to win in a lanslide, numbers don’t lied, 23 million Americans out of work, 47 Americams on some sort of government relief, an ecomony that is funded by government spending (over 70%) which explains the 2% grow in US Ecomony, vice the private sector but here the best part six trillion dollars in new debt part so if Obama gets relected than here your future or lack thereof as numbers don’t lie, as some point the Fed will have to raise the interest rate which will cause inflation to raise at unprecented rate, which means if you have any money in the bank as savings let say $50,000 your saving will be devaulted by 50% becuase the Fed will have to devalue the dollar to pay the interst on the debt. So for all you folks who think wealth distribution is a good thing and taxing the so call rich is the way to go, just look at Europe especially Greece and Spain because that the American future.

    Personally, I like and respect Mitt Romney very much (unlike Obama he does not dodge the tough questions and is also a true gentleman who doesn’t have to stoop to name calling), so I was more than happy to cast my ballot for him.

    Not only has Obama destroyed our economy, several lives & used our constitution for toilet paper, his Libya scandal with constantly changing stories – going back and forth with the trumped up video excuse are reprehensible. Four fine Americans were allowed to die, while he did nothing – he has just been running out the clock until Nov. 6 when, as he has said, he can “be more “flexible”. At the very least I consider this to be manslaughter.

    Oh, and I have five staunchly democratic friends who voted for Obama in 2008. They have been so disgusted with him, two have already voted Romney and the other three will be doing so.

    Nobody can defend Obama to me – he is completely indefensible – not to mention, he has replaced Carter as the worst president in U.S. history!

  • jediprince123

    I no longer could sit on the sidelines anymore. Anyway, I would like to talk to the middle class republicans who are supporting Mitt Romney over Obama and ask what you see in Gov. Romney that many democrats do not. And is your support based upon sound facts or because of the same reason why former Gov. Sununu said was the reason why former General Powell supports President Obama? This is not to bash the republicans but to have some rational person put this in perspective. President Obama is from the middle class and has those roots. He appears to understand many of the American financial problems and the emotional and sometimes physical destruction, a lack of financial independence can have on a person’s soul. He inherited two wars from the Bush administration based in large part of the 9 11 attacks. However, neither Iraq nor Afghanistan had anything to do with destroying our buildings and the American spirit. It was Osama Bin laden and his terrorist organization. Be that as it may, we spent billions of dollars that Congressman Ryan voted for before the tea party days with no fiscal solution of how to recoup this money, our tax payer money. We went from a projected surplus under President Clinton to massive deficits under the financial death grip of those two wars that Speaker Boehner and Congressman Ryan voted to authorize for former President Bush. Case in point Senator Obama voted against the wars. Anyway, President Obama inherited an economic situation where we were losing over 700,000 jobs a month, dozens of business going out of business, and the stock market crashing every day. The dow average was 8,500 down from an all time high of 14,100 and American morale was low. Before Obama was sworn in he made a bipartisan trip to Capitol Hill and met with republicans to get things moving before he became president. The senate minority leader Mitch McConnell said his number one objective is to make President Obama a one term president. Even after the harsh attack from Senator McConnell, the president continued to try to incorporate republican principles into legislation they would support. Case in point: healthcare. The individual mandate idea was a republican idea. Congressman Gingrich supported it. Many republicans supported it and we all know Gov. Romney’s position on the subject. They all said it was important that the health care system not be free and everyone needed to pay their fare share. Senator Obama was against the idea of an individual mandate when he was running for president. But in a bi-partisan effort, he included that in the bill and yet, every single republican voted against it. In essence they all said no to every proposal no matter how reasonable of an offer he made. The economic principles were horrible and we wanted a president to fix it. However, under the constitution of the United States, doesn’t congress enact legislation which appropriate money to fix solutions? And if congress does not act, the president can’t either? Paul Ryan says the president did nothing to solve the jobs crisis. However, didn’t President Obama call a joint session of congress last year to address the problems of jobs but was told by Speaker Boehner to come back another day because they were busy doing procedural work and couldn’t deal with the President? And to this day, the jobs bill is stuck in a congressional committee. Throughout his presidency, Obama dealt with name calling by politicians such as attacks from Gov. Brewer of Arizona, being called “lazy” and “un-american” by Sununu, a “retard” by Ann coulter, a secretive person by Donald Trump and a ‘food stamp” loving person by Newt Ginrich. Yet despite the utter disrespect shown to him and his office, he still tried to fix the economic problems of America without the support of Congress who are the ones under the constitution to be the actual problem solvers. Yet the country came back. Not roaring back. Yet how could it if the ones charged under the constitution to fix it refuse to do so? The jobs are coming back. The auto industry is back. The stock market is one thousand points away from the all time high again.

Bin Laden is gone. The terrorist organizations are leaving. Why change? We can see what this president has done.

      Mitt Romney is not qualified to be president of the United States. The president requires much more than knowing how to make money. There are many other issues that are civil and social and non profit that vital to our economy and well being. Mr Romney made it abundantly clear that he is not prepared to lead on the international stage. The president is an extraordinary person because he is faced with extraordinary problems. By the time the problem gets to the white house, everyone has already tried to solve it. By the time it gets to the president everyone has tried to solve it….and it is imperative that being familiar with every type of person is essential. Romney just doesn’t connect with every day people. Therefore, he just isn’t qualified.

    The hidden agenda in this election is about race. To Some It’s the main issue, i.e ” It’s better for one man to die, if it meant retaining the piece of Israel.” Rather than addressing the issue that is making them to have cold feet — they chose to chase shadows. Would they succeed? Probably in the short run — before the inevitable shall descend on them.They still have ample time to redeem the cold feet.
    But above all the right thinking and sensible Americans should tell MITT, the GOP and the tea party; that the office of the president of United states of America is not for sale — and even if it should be — Mitt Romney and his cohort, cannot be the worthy purchaser.

    The race argument is as illogical as voting for Obama. We voted him in four years ago. If we now turn against him for a thousand valid reasons, does that mean we’ve turned racist? The only racism I see comes from the White House. The man is the most dangerous man to America ever elected to any office. He is in bed with the Muslim Brotherhood which is dedicated to destroy America. When you vote for him you are burning an American flag. And if he gets in you will get what you deserve and I’ll renounce my U.S. citizenship.

    THE 2 FACES of MITT..
    Who is the real Mitt Romney? If given the chance, would Mitt ‘DEFUND Planned Parenthood’ or overturn Roe v Wade?? Did Mitt really meant what he said behind closed doors, that 47% of American are automatic supporters of Obama because they are dependent on the government and don’t pay taxes, or was Mitt lying to his GOP Base at the “Fund Raiser”??… Does Mitt really has a Tax Policy which arithmetic, or a Tax Policy with random numbers that don’t add up? Is Mitt a mild mannered Clark Kent, or is Mitt a mentally unstable David Banner?. Will Mitt explode on people like Gov Rick Perry when he get angry or can’t win an argument, or turn the other cheek?……
    Like father- like son: Why did the military dodger and coward (Tagg Romney) threatened to punch the President of the United States…Is Mitt Romney a flip flopper, or a liar?? Do Mitt like to hire people, or does Mitt like to FIRE PEOPLE? Did Mitt really bully and cut a homosexual hair, or did Mitt have ROMNESIA? Why didn’t Mitt write a book to introduce himself like most presidential candidates? Why did Mitt abuse his dog, in a cage, on the roof of his car for 650 miles? Why did Mitt seal his Juvenile arrest record for destroying a private golf course, with blocks of ice ? Did Mitt really have a binder full of women, or a house full of boys who dodges the military? Why doesn’t Mitt show more than 2 yrs of his tax returns, contrary to his father belief? Why did Mitt dodge the Vietnam War with “4 yrs of RELIGION Deferment”, and only spent 2 years in France on a Mormon Religion Missionary Stay?

      I don’t care how the outside world views us…As long as they are aware of the fact we could destroy them in a heartbeat it doesn’t really matter what the rest of the world thinks…You might want to consider all of the records Obama spent millions to hide from americans…Those college records would reveal the truth about Obama…He is a liar and a cheat…

      Romney pays more taxes and gives more to charity in one year than you and your entire family will earn over a lifetime. There is nothing damaging in those files and it’s none of your business. Obama if he should “win” one more term will do his best to destroy what is left of the economy in this country.

      Then we can all live in a nice third world setting…bye the way…which country do you live in George? There is nothing dubious about foriegn bank accounts of foreign investment, he didn’t help anyone evade taxes…this country has a legion of lawyers…that is all they do help rich people(that create the jobs) to minimize there tax liability…it’s legal here in America.

      Are you looking to America for more handouts or for honest leadership? We have no leadership in this country under Obama he is weak…and a fool. America will never suffer a fool this is why Obama will be voted out of office in 10 days. Without strong honest leadership and tax laws that work for business we will not be handing anything to anyone…America is way past broke and under Obama we doubled that amount…in just four years…Obama has broken every camoagin promise he made…bottom line he needs to go.

        I’m afraid it is YOU who is the weak minded fool! If Obama is “SOOOO bad” for the economy, then why is the economy IMPROVING under Obama despite the GOP’s BEST and most complete OBSTRUCTION of legislation that has EVER occurred in the entire history of Congress????? You claim that Obama “is a liar and a cheat…” but provide not a SHRED of evidence to support such an outrageously FALSE claim!
        You are an EMBARASSMENT to this great Nation and I strongly suspect that you are yet another Republican RACIST, since your CLAIMS have NO evidence to support them! Obama has done his absolute BEST to make good on his promises, but it has been the DISPICABLE OBSTRUCTIONIST GOP that has prevented some of his promises from getting passed! You Repugnants keep BLOCKING all legislation to help America, then you point to Obama and BLAME him for YOUR lack of action! It is DIGUSTING! Shame on you!….

    I cannot believe that people would vote for a candidate because they heard the candidate is leading in the pre-election polls. Talk about being pathetically shallow.

    I do not vote. I’m not a resident/citizen.
    But, like most observers, I can’t, for the life of me, understand the astounding naivete, religiosity and conservatism of so many of your voters.
    This voting on ” issues, ” the importance of religion in what should be a rational process, the kind of representatives people send to Congress ( Akin at al ) … it all makes your political process so incredibly primitive, – and welded to money and advertising directed to the lowest common intellectual denominator -, that it is hard to digest, for the rest of us, to depend, every two to four years, on its results. A bit like resigning yourself to have your house run according to the whims of the cat.
    Surely not what the prescient Founding Fathers had in mind when they designed such a great system pivoted on an Informed Electorate.

  • Stuart M.

    Nuff ain’t been said. We aren’t stupid: we know the Repubs have been fighting Obama tooth and nail every step of the way. Our US government bonds got downgraded as a direct result of the Republican House of Reps obstructionism. The Tea Party extremists are hoping this country will go down the drain. Watch what happens when Obama wins. The Repubs will probably refuse to help stop the so-called fiscal cliff from happening. Voters had better kick those Tea Partiers out and give Obama a Congress that can behave rationally.

  • Christopher Harker

    As a non American, I believe America is ungovernable. You guys are so terrified of a winner takes all situation that you create a no-one wins situation. Obama could not have “won” more convincingly in 2008 and yet the party of ‘NO’ blocked all his moves so that after 4 years the GOP can boast that he achieved nothing. If he wins next Tuesday it will be 4 more years of being blocked

    Romney’s bald-faced lies about Chrysler moving its Ohio Jeep plant to China and his opposition to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, which is performing so admirably in the wake of Superstorm Sandy, has just assured President Obama’s reelection.

    Wittless/Mittless, the Dr Jackle and Mr Hyde of this presidential election race. With just a few days left any undecided voters will probably vote for the candidate he knows then the candidate he was thinking about! A candidate who changes his position and core beliefs like “my wife in a shoe store” is not ready to be POTUS. I invite all readers to read the “White Horse Prophecy” The site is on line. Just type in the “White Horse Prophecy”. Obama/Biden 2012

      Oh Really? Then please explain why Obama’s first four years have greatly IMPROVED our economy? The DOW avg is currently almost TWICE what it was in 2008! And Real Eastate pricres are inching upward! If Obama is “SOO BAD” for this Nation, How come we are Better off today than we were four years ago, hmm?

      • SkyBlue36

        Look at the deficit – look at the national debt – look at the unemployment. The country is practically owned by the Chinese and all Obama does is print more money. The US cannot sustain 4 more years of Obama socialism.

        • Highly_Amuzed

          Yes, lets LOOK at the deficit that has BALLOONED as a result of two useless and totally unproductive WARs that were started by the Republicans without ANY regard to how we would PAY for them!!!!!! And now Romney is just “ITCHING” to bomb IRAN!!!! He can hardly wait to send our troops into harms way and waste yet ANOTHER $5 or $6 TRILLION for NO GOOD REASON! IT IS ROMNEY that we cannot sustain as a President! Obama has CLEARLY IMPROVED our situation! Obama is the most fiscally responsible President we have had in the last 50 years! The FACT remains that past REPUBLICAN administrations have OUTSPENT Democratic administrations 2 TO 1 !!!!!! That is a HISTORIC FACT! You Repugnants have a VERY SHORT memory! You seem to forget that four years ago our Nation was on its KNEES because of George W Bush and his RECKLESS zeal for ATTACKING other Nations and Lying to the American People about it! Our ENTIRE Financial system NEARLY COLLAPSED!!! We are SO MUCH BETTER OFF TODAY than we were four years ago, it really makes your pointless argument seem quite SILLY!…

          • SkyBlue36

            No need to shout man. Obviously you are totally bemused by the man and arguing with you is a waste of time as everything is the fault of the Republicans. Classic Democrat response. Good luck next week, you’ll need it.

            No, I won’t need it! Obviously FACTS mean nothing to you. I’m not the one who is fooling themselves!…

    Bogus polls like this also make it harder to steal the election. When voting machines shift the vote as they did in Ohio in 04, but the results match their twisted polls, no one thinks it is wrong.

    Romney is a Mormon.
    Mitt Moon has many phases.
    As a moon, he waxes and wanes.
    He’s gonna lose in spite of his Bainglory and braggadocio.
    His only vice, Kid Ryan the Voucher Kid, got whacked by Joe Biden during the debate.
    After Obama, I hope Chris Christie will run as President with Bloomberg as his veep.

    President Obama hasn’t solved all our problems but he has put strategies in place that will move us forward. I was unemployed and on my 3rd extension when I was offered a position in my field at a good wage-things are turning around. If Congress had done ANYTHING in the last four years to improve things for the majority of the Country we would be a lot farther ahead than we are. I’ll be glued to the tube on election eve until I know President Obama is back in office for another 4 years.

    I guess what Mitt also won’t tell us is what his big plans are for the US if he is elected. More of the same…probably, but with emphasis on lower taxes for his millionair friends and more wars for his defence contractor friends and benefactors. He also won’t tell us what he paid or didn’t pay in personal income taxes, yet he is prepared to change every one else’s taxes the day after he takes office. Mostly he won’t tell us anything…just likes to keep us guessing.

  • http://www.facebook.com/cyril.egbefo Cyril Egbefo

    It is very glaring that Obama is winning. All the GOP strategies on Gov. Romney’s momentum are just games. The president has worked extemely hard to restore the US on the part of growth again and deserves a second change to complete what he started. He has won already.

    It is very glaring that Obama is winning. All the GOP strategies about Gov. Romney gaining momentum are just games. The president has worked very hard to restore the US on the path of growth again – after been messed up by the GOP. He deserves a second term to complete his good works. President Obama has already won.

    If Obama wins, he is one lucky basterd. Media doesn’t go after him over Benghazi. Hurricane Sandy diverts everyone’s attention. etc etc.

    And now Obama’s finishing up his campaign by saying he will work with anyone and everyone to get the job done.

    What a joke.

    This is telegraph, telegram, tell America. We can never keep a secret, otherwise it will lead us to discontentment. We are always playing the blame game. I dont have a job as of yet, but I aint blaming no one but myself….enough said about the economy. We cause our own hell by how we think and what we say.

    Shalom from Jerusalem:
    Obama received and had and continues to have the Blessing of Moshiach, in Receiving, to give, to win Ohio, as did Ms. Elizabeth Warren in Masachusetts, who Moshiach blessed to win her Senate seat bid, in MA where Yehoshua was born and raised; while he NOW lives in Jerusalem; under exile’s house arrest having been Blessed by our Gedolim as Israel’s authentic leader. This COVERT evil decree, follows Peres express instructions and was/is executed and maintained by Bibi and his minyons. He’s the originator of the post Zionist model of redemption, Humanomics(sm) which explains WHY all the extreme violence to racism and JEALOUSY against him and his property. Humanomics(sm) central organization is its Receiving, to give, with its unique NEW economic paradigm the Integration of Labor, as replaces the old division of labor. Google them and see WHY the Israelis are green with envy, and JEALOUSY. Blessings, Yehoshua Ya’acov
