destruction of america? what about bush turning a trillion surplus into deficits from 2 immoral, unfunded wars? tax cuts that made america the most unequal country in the industrial world? it's amaziong obama has accomplished as much as he has
Oohhaaa Cascoly, although only the Iraq war was immoral. I cannot agree with you about Afghanistan; that was righteous although ineptly, almost criminally so, fought after the initial success. Al Quada having reivented itself is proof of that.
"Prophetess" kmaskreations - the first part of your answer has come true - I hope this part "By the third year of his second term, even die-hard democrats will want rid of him" does too.

despite republican efforts to curtail the vote, all states will allow voting until Nov 6th !!
I do not see how Romney could win all those states, and would probably win North Carolina and Virginia too, in any situation that was not a landslide.
I hope so Conservative Lady. The Obama administration is throwing all the dirt they can, but most people are smart enough to see that he has failed miserably.
Poor Drones--they see the end of their messiah is near.
Your use of the word drones confused me at first but perhaps you don't know the meaning of the word in context to US policy.
@swb78: Romney presented himself as a "turnaround artist" -- 'd guy w/ d quick fix for certain resuscitation -- but instead of laying out a mission that cud oust 'd messiah Obama, he kept his details hidden! Sorry Reps R running out of better cand8s!

The Frog Prince says
For those not as "senior" as we are Carter's defeat is the most lopsided defeat for any incumbent president in an election where only two candidates won electoral votes. Ronald Reagan beat Carter by almost 10 percentage points in the popular vote.
This election is different than Carter/Reagan in a number of key ways.
1. No third party candidate. (John Anderson)
2. No primary challenge to the President. (Ted Kennedy)
and Romney "ain't no Ronald Reagan."
I think you are right. The American people can't be foolish enough to vote for this again. When people say that Romney is no Reagan, I don't think they are giving him a chance. When Regan was elected no one knew he was a "Reagan" yet.
Romney may not be Reagan BUT he is the closest we have seen since Reagan!
But Skarlet, then Robephiles doesn't have a zinger - guess have to makeup some thing else.
There is this Republican mythology that Reagan "came out of nowhere" but that isn't true. He was the Primary Challenger to Gerald Ford in 1976. In fact, he almost took the nomination away from Ford, fighting him all the way to the convention.
Yeah and through it all he was portrayed by the democrats and the media as a fumbling cowboy, stupid 2nd rate actor who could never be president.
I was lived through the Reagan years, as you did. He was a very effective campaigner. He was also much more moderate than Republicans like to claim. He defended gay teachers as Governor of California and was even to the left of Romney economically
We will never get to know of course, but my bet is that Romney, if elected, would have made a major swing back to the middle. I see him, when left to his own devices, more of an Eisenhower type, if the truth be known.
I have thought this as well. I had assumed that Romney would run a moderate campaign but he made it through the primaries and into the general election while still being fanatically right wing. We will never know though.
I have to agree with @TSA about Reagan, the Dems did try that. I lived in CA when he did, and knew better after seeing him as Governor, he knew how to govern, I even voted for him twice for Pres, although I wish I hadn't the second time.

Wondering why my comment was 'hidden' due to 'negative input' when all it said was that Obama was going to win - by a landslide?
Not sure that it was, @IM, I had seen it. They "hide" comments to save space, but you can click on "see all comments" and it should be there.
I know they hide comments, but this said 'hidden due to negative input' - but - there was nothing negative about it - unless you're a romney fan, of course..lol
Oh, bummer, nothing negative about that, like you said.

This is pretty close to right. I don't get how Republicans can be so smug when the statistics are making it very hard for Romney to win. And Ohio and Wisconsin have been leaning further to Obama slowly since the debates. Romney needs one of those.
You mean like the whining and complaining left wingers did with Bush Gore?
You hit right on the head Skarlet!
Yeah, Skarlet your absolutely right. Those of us with brains that can actually think logically remember the Sore/Loserman campaign--LOL
great -- that's at least 3 people who wont be whining next week when obama wins!
