    WHY DO THE REPUBLICANS BELIEVE THEY HAVE TO LY TO GET SOMETHING ACROSS TO THE AMERICAN? , THE AFRICAN AMERICANS NEED TO READ THEIR AMERICAN HISTORY ON PRESIDENT LINCOLN ABOUT FREEING THE SLAVES AND THEY WILL FIND OUT THAT IT WAS THE MILITARY THAT FREED THE SLAVES. IN 1989 I HAD TO COME UP WITH TEN YEARS OF TAX RETURN NOW WHY (MITT ROMNEY ) CAN’T SHOW US HIS DOES THIS MEANS THAT THE MAN IS A CROOK AND MIXED UP IN SOMETHING HE SHOULDN’T BE IN AND WHAT IS HE JIDING? R.S.

      Thank you Michelle what a great writer

    • We all know Romney paid less taxes than you did. Bain Capital went out and bought bad and good company’s, they would borrow money then pay themselves big dividends then let the company pay back the loan. Sometimes the company’s went into bankrupecy, they couldn’t pay back the loan Bain borrowed.

  • This comment is under photo of the former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords after she recited the Pledge of Allegiance at the Democratic National Convention. What bug crawled up your ass to make you start railing on about African Americans and slavery and taxes. Whatever your political stand, you should feel good about her surviving and making such a miraculous recovery.

    My father-in-law is a dyed-in-the-wool Republican, but while watching her struggle to recite the pledge of allegiance so proudly and heartfelt, I watched him move his right hand to cover his heart, and saw him use his left hand to wipe away tears.
