    Could the contrast be any greater between Romney, who looted American companies and shipped their jobs overseas, only pays taxes at a 13% rate, stashes his money in the Cayman Islands to avoid U.S. taxes, and President Obama who saved GM and created 32 straight months of private sector job growth?

    Obama is an economic patriot.

    Romney is an economic traitor.

    Romney and Ryan have just about talked themselves out of this election. I am sure that the President will get over 300 electorial votes, maybe over 350.

    The interesting thing is, what if this holds?

    let's say, for the sake of argument, that Obama gets his 269, but Romney wins all the toss ups.

    That would put them both at 269 and toss the election into the Congress. The House picks the president, the Senate picks the Veep.

    Ouch. That could get messy.

    Nate Silver has that at a 0.5% chance.

    If that were to happen you can guarantee people will be killing each other in the streets.

    An electoral tie should be broken by popular vote.

    Romney looted American companies. How many did he create or help and how many jobs did he create. His success rate was 70%.
    Obamas stimulus sent many jobs and money overseas. Look up where it went, if you care.
    Romney pays 13% because he lives off capitol gains and the original investments were taxed.

    Unemployment has been over 8% for over 44 months. That is good to you.
    He saved GM the wrong way and they are still in trouble. Look at their stock
    Obama is the worst president.

    Romney will fix Obamas mistakes.
