    Been watching the Republican meltdown of late and gosh, it's becoming more and more of a joke lately. After the disaster of the Bush administration, the Republicans doubled down on the nuttiness and let the patients take over the asylum instead of admitting fault. Well it cost them big. The Tea Party types no longer took marching orders from the establishment types and were completely unwilling to compromise on anything. This lead to such happy moments as the S&P downgrade, the near shutdown of the government and a plethora of ridiculous new bills trying to get rid of abortion and put up a Constitutional amendment to cap spending. Then came the candidates. It seemed that everyone with a screw loose was allowed in. From "civil rights are wrong" Ron Paul, to "the founding fathers worked tirelessly to stop slavery" Ms. Death Panels herself, Michelle Bachmann. The more "reasonable" candidates like Pawlenty and Huntsman were knocked off early. So what it seems now is we have a fight between sleazy businessman the very Gordon Gekko, say anything for a laugh, Willard Mitt Romney against disgraced sleaze bag bigotted racist, Newton Leroy Gingrich.

    Recently on a Radio show, Romney admitted the economy was getting better.

    Romney affirms Obama's economic record. Oops. - Video on msnbc.com
    Political Animal - Romney: U.S. economy ‘getting better’ under Obama
    And this from a guy with a secret Swiss bank account and Cayman Island investments.

    Are you guys serious or what?

    This has to be a joke. :lol:

    With little effort one could just change some names move a D and a R around and say the say thing.

    The Democrats are just as screwed up as the Republicans,there isn't any good choices from ether party.

    President Obama is a fine choice. For the most part..he's done what he said he was going to do.

    And he's right. The recession is deeper because of Obama... and it is an anemic recovery.

    I guess you have to have an intellectual level over that of a houseplant to get it.

    As expected.

    The personal insult.

    In any case..he's talking out of both sides of his mouth over nearly every issue.

    Kerry got in trouble over one..voting for the war on Iraq.

    Congrats.

    The personal insult was earned. It's not that hard to understand what he's saying. Seriously... make an effort and engage your brain while you consider what he said. He's right.

    Personal insults aren't earned. They are generally used by people who are intellectually incapable of making pertinent points or rebuttals.

    And as to Romney, right about what?

    His plan was to let GM go belly up..and to force foreclosures to happen at a faster rate. Both ideas would have really caused a big meltdown.

    And it demonstrates what a patently bad idea it is to elect a corporate raider..President of the United States.
