Wow - what a bunch of blind sheep!!!
You honestly think that Obama cares about you and your family????
He doesn't. All Michelle cares about it going on extravagant trips in AF1 on our dime!!!
B.O. is the one who's going to put grandma to death with his Obummercare!! He's the one with the death panel.
You people are so blind.
If he gets back in for another 4yrs - we're doomed!
Our forefathers have been rolling in their graves for 4yrs now - let them rest in peace once again by NOT VOTING FOR B.O.!!!

@Obama the ONLY choice

""Watched both conventions. I felt like I was back in the 3rd grade watching the Republicans.""

That was Sandra Fluke - pay for my sex life habits - and the ex Governor of Michigan melting down you were watching. Oh, and the fixed "vote" on putting Jerusalem and God back into their platform.....while being booed by the majority.

Breaking News. Europeans have always preferred fellow Euro type socialists as American presidents.

@Obama 2012

He just isn't funny.

Teen Tech challenge: Obama has trouble with iPhone

On the campaign trail, President Obama is constantly talking about the importance of technology, but he met his match in an iPhone Sunday.

But when White House trip director Marvin Nicholson handed the president his personal iPhone, Mr. Obama couldn't get it to work. A reporter who witnessed the scene said the president looked "befuddled."

"It's not clear he knows how to dial on an iPhone," the reporter wrote in a pool report.

Finally, Mr. Obama said, "Oh, I got to dial it in. Hold on, hold on. I can do this. See, I still have a BlackBerry."

A volunteer called out, "I'll give you my phone, call my wife."

"I'll call her and tell her that you're messing around here in the office, giving the president …." Mr. Obama said, his voice trailing off.

Mitt should have mentioned the wars, I absolutely agree.

Please remember, obama is ending the Iraq war on Bush's timeline exactly but the Dems in Congress VOTED FOR the Iraq war so they are complicit. I was against it and am absolutely against the Afghanistan war.

These people live in the third century and nothing we do will ever change that. One more soldier dying there is one too many. I have lost two cousins there. Why the hell are we even there anyway? Our goal is what, burning poppy fields? Dying fighting the Nazis was one thing but this??

Please remember, obama has been on the WRONG side in every Arab street country and he NOW has Muslim Brotherhood members going in and out of the White House like they belong there. THAT IS SCARY!! The only friend we had there, he helped get out and kill.

Am I the only one connecting the dots on obama's help on the side of the muslim fanatics?

Article comment by: Obama 2012

Romney has no clue on reality of how the middle class is struggling. He’s arrogant, making $10,000 bets like it was a $10 bet for most people. Saying stuff like, “I like NASCAR, most of my friends are team owners.” Oh and let’s not for get the modern day Marie Antoinette, AKA Ann Romney. Her role as First Lady would tell the poor to eat cake.

It’s Obama hands down. At least he cares for the middle class unlike Romney will cut taxes for the rich, while sticking it to the middle and lower class. Cut veteran’s benefits so our soldiers returning home with Post Traumatic Stress because of wars that the Republicans started will be penny less and homeless. Republicans have no problem sending these people to war to fight and die, but if you get injured they could care less for you.
After all the Republicans have been showing their true colors for the last four years. Nothing but a bunch of racists who want to see this country go back to 1950’s America with No rights for Women and No civil rights. A Romney Presidency means the rich get richer while his VP cuts grandma’s Medicare. Enjoy your time with grandma because as soon as Romney wins, Ryan will have her on his death panel when he cuts her Medicare.

As a Viet-Nam Veteran it grinds me that Mitt Romney never mentioned the troops in Afganistan and if he had any plans to bring home our troups. Kudos to President Obama for ending Iraq, a war we were suckered into, and a time line for ending Afganistan. What really annoys me is there is no media coverage. The American people should be given coverage of the danger our troups face in that hostile environment. Instead we are spooned "TV for idiots, Jersey Shore, Desparate Housewives, ad nauseum.

At the top of the news this hour, In Afganistan another American soldier died today, 22 years old from Schoolcraft Michigan.

Our corporate owned and operated media has become so callus, Afganistan is now called the "Who Cares?" war. Do we hear that two wars dug a 4 trillion dollar hole. Reporters used to dig into the meat of a story, ask the tough qestions from credible sources, then lay the facts in front of the audience. Today, beautiful people feed us inuendo, conjecture, and in many cases bais reporting.

I remember when a newsroom was not run by how much advertising it could make. It was run by people who believed the public had a right to know the truth, and owners stood beside his newsroom. In todays world, owners have their own political adgenda thus the dream has died.

Hate and propaganda. But then it wasn't that long ago that "the sign" was taken down just outside of Kingman.
Worship the rich and see how much better off you will be in 4 years with romney. If you think he has a magical touch, I feel sorry for you and our country.

“I will vote for anybody other than the socialist freedom killer Obama.”

So that means you will be voting for the anti-American, job killer who bankrupted American companies, put American workers out on the street, stole the pensions of American workers, took away the health care of American workers while sending American jobs to Communist China and then hid his ill-gotten gains off-shore, further ensuring that neither this nation or it’s workers would benefit.

Anyone who supports Willard the Money hider is anti-American and anti-American worker – it’s as simple as that!

Remember under Obama – Osama bin Laden is dead and General Motors is alive.

I doubt any of the wanna-be psychics, prophets or poll addicts have a clue on who will win this Nov., one can flip a coin and have a 50% chance of picking the winner! No one can know what undecided voters have decided, or when they have decided other than on election night! Hence the vote count!

Article comment by: Obama the ONLY choice

Watched both conventions. I felt like I was back in the 3rd grade watching the Republicans. Simple talk for, well, you know, a certain group of voters. More tax cuts for the rich, and you`re on your own the rest of you suckers! The Democrats on the other hand were brilliant! President Clinton was very precise with detailed plans to get the middle class back on track, and a FAIR tax system for all. FORWARD, not backwards like Romney wants to lead us.

Maybe you should watch The Mormon Candidate, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ThVKKqGit50, and find the truth about the cult member we have running for office.

Oh for Heaven's sake..... is this the best that you can do for choices? Many, not all, have conflicting views regarding the 2-party choices...... shouldn't this be a choice as well?

It’s the little things in life that makes it worthwhile.
Family and friends who challenge us to grow and evolve into what we cannot perceive at the time. A country where freedom is not only right but also expected of us to lend to it with our participation in it.
It’s not easy with all of our human frailties of emotions. Yet it is theses emotions that may become the essence of who we are as individuals. However with out intellect over these emotions we as individuals have a tendency to self-destruct by will way of self will run array.
If and only if we place intellect over emotions we stand the chance to unite as one peoples of the world. Ideologies may like geographic locations separate us one from the other as a group or individuals in a group.
When we put away our falsehoods of belief we may at once be transformed into a being that cares about the earth and all of its entities that inhabit it. Somehow we come miraculously to place others needs before ourselves and in so doing we become heroes unrecognized by ourselves.
Your family and friends see this straight a way and soon the groups you frequent because of kinship in thought and action see it also. The world may need heroes, however a bit of humility about it is also needed.
Most of us would say, it would be a dull place indeed if everyone thought and acted as I. So we come to recognize that every snowflake is different and every grain of sand unique. It takes a lot of snowflakes to make a snowman and billions of grains of sand to make a beach. I am grateful for both.

I think those that watched the conventions probably already had their minds made up. There may be a larger percentage of undecideds that watch the debates. Or it may be the same group of decideds that just want to watch in hopes that the other guy will fall flat on his rear and say something more ludricrous than the other one. Unfortunately, these people (no matter their political persuation) are in the minority. The majority of people are watching reality TV and probably won't even bother to vote anyway.

Voters historically make up their minds about the state of the economy 6 months before the election. This time around has been set in stone.....long ago.
