    And he fulfills all of our far right, un-Constitutional, constant worldwide war dreams!

    ...of course, he also ran to the left of Ted Kennedy, who was to the left of President Obama.

    ...aren't you voting for the guy who has had us in more countries now than W? :mmh:

    I'm not saying Romney's great or anything, but the whole "He's a war-monger" seems kind of... flawed, seeing how Obama's been.

    I haven't decided yet. I'm probably going to just not vote for President this year, or write someone in.

    'Cause, you know...I'm not an Obama supporter.

    He did say if he was elected war with Iran wouldn't just be an "option." If he becomes the next president he should sit down with Ahmadinejad. He can tell him about the end of the world theodemocratic world government run by the Mormon Church and Ahmadinejad can tell him about the coming 12th Imam who is going to rule the world for Muslims.:D Perfect fit.

    Before we all bend down to kiss Romney's behind, let's explore some more facts about Mitt. I wonder how Romney became so rich if he never takes a salary? His net worth is $250 million! Even I would bypass a salary of $200-$300k a year if I already had over 1000 times that much. And whose money is he giving to charity anyway? He never made a salary according to you, so I guess he's giving away money that he never earned? Money means nothing to him because he never had to worry about it or work for it. He has no idea how life is in the working world and you're naive to think he gives a crap about you or me.

    Ironic that you would bring up Obama's former preacher. He's black isn't he? Mitt wouldn't have such problem in his past as blacks were only permitted to be priests in LDS chuches starting in 1978.

    Mitt Romney, a man for all the people*.

    *Rich, white people anyway.

    Some facts left out here or complete lies.

    First, Biden and his wife make a fraction of what Obama and Romney make. He was the poorest US senator, and the only one with only 1 home.

    The bulk of Romney's donations go as tithe's to the Mormon Church. According to his religion, this isn't really considered to be optional.

    Lastly, it is an outright lie that Obama gave 1% to charity:

    http://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files/president_obama_complete_return_2011.pdf

    He gave nearly 22% of his adjusted gross income, Romney gave 19%:

    So technically, Obama was more charitable then Romney.

    It's the new kind of "fact" where you drag anyone necessary into the mud to make your guy look cleaner.

    It is a comparison. When Biden speaks of how much he cares about the little guy, this fact makes one wonder.

    To refer to Bain as a venture capitalists is dishonest. There is a distict difference between venture capitalism and leveraged buyouts (LBOs). Venture capitalism is an investment in a company that incurs risk of loss. LBOs are a purchace of the company that incurs virtually no risk of loss. Venture capitalism increases a company's cash flow, while an LBO increases its debt.

    Is Bain responsible for Staples success? That's hard to say, but what we do know with near certainty is that they came out of the experience further in debt than when they went in. Now maybe that increased debt caused them to operate in a more efficient way and that aided their success.

    How does showing Biden allegedly giving little to charity make Romney look smarter?

    That's all negated by the undeniable fact that Romney put his dog on the roof of his car.. :D:D

    Unless of course you understand the state of the Bidens' finances.
