obama did the same thing in 08  they all do..... except i'm leaning toward believing Romney MAY actually do what he says since he does have a religious background and wants to do the right thing.  I know a few mormons and they are the most real people who stand by what they say.  (i am NOT mormon nor do i know who i'm voting for yet... im an "undecided" :D  




Quoting pvtjokerus:

Not true!  He has done plenty.  He has kept unemployment up. He has weakened us in the Internationally arena. He has hurt the middle class.  He and Reid has failed us by not giving us a budget for 3 1/2 years. He has helped lower our credit rating.  He and his administration helped get a U.S. Ambo killed.  And he has helped racism grow in this country.

Quoting gsprofval:

Wait, obama has had 4 years and done nothing so far. Talk about deflection.....now obama says we have plans....but nothing material to offer.

Quoting LucyMom08:

 Romney is extremely skilled at deflection...he's all about 'what I'm gonna do' but not too great on the specifics...

It is funny that you bring up the Mormon topic.  Recently, I have been paying more attention to some of my co-workers that are Mormon and noticed that from what I have seen their value system is strong.  They are hard workers and their kids are always well kept.  lol.  Just an observation from someone that does not know much about the their faith.

I agree with you on the Mormom issue. I only know a couple, but they definetly are the nerdy types that do what they believe that they are supposeed to do, and they are the nicest people.

I am curious about being undecided, what makes yu undecided?

For clarifications.. "greenest" as in least experience? wink mini

Quoting AdellesMom:

Nope, I can't say it for certain. But, Obama is one of the greenest Presidents we've had! ;)

Quoting Jambo4:

Can you say for certain that isn't going to happen?  How would we know?  Just use note cards if you can't think quick enough on your feet.. that's my solution.

Quoting AdellesMom:

Yes. They're modern day note cards. I don't understand why that's so hard for some to understand.



You're right. They can be programmed at a moment's notice. However, that's not likely to happen.


Think of the little ones... Americans can't bear another 4 years of Obama!

sidesplittinglaughter absolutely!

Quoting Carpy:

Hey, now. There was bipartisan support on Obama's budget proposal. Every member of congress from both sides voted NO.

Quoting mom_to_travis:

"They tried"????  LMAO

Quoting incognito116:

They tried. Obama won't even work with his own party which is why he uses executive order for so many things (illegally in many cases)


Quoting ms-superwoman:

And Republicans worked with Obama when? Oh that's right.....


uoting incognito116:
Bullshit!  The only thing he worked with Republicans on is.... wait... nothing.

Oh Goodness.

Virginia remains a nail-biter in the first post-debate survey of the key battleground state, with Mitt Romney edging slightly ahead.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Virginia Voters, taken last night, shows Romney earning 49% support to Obama's 48%. Three percent (3%) remain undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Ohio poll: Romney leads 51-48 among those certain to vote

The first post-presidential debate poll in critical Ohio shows that Mitt Romney blunted President Obama's momentum with his winning performance and is now leading the president among Ohioans who say that they are "certain" to vote.

Overall, the race is deadlocked with Obama over Romney 50 percent to 49 percent, according to the poll taken Thursday night.

But among the stunning 92 percent of all voters in the state who say that they are certain to go to the polls on Election Day, Romney leads 51 percent to 48 percent. And among the 83 percent who have already made up their minds how they will vote, Romney is ahead 52 percent to 48 percent.
