Now that we know Mitt Romney has paid MORE than his fair share of taxes and donated millions to charities, why do people keep demonizing him? Obama came out after four Americans were murdered and said, "well, we've had a bad week," before reminding the crowd that there is an election coming up. Seems like Obama has displayed a lot more in human coldness than Romney ever has, and no one picks up on it.

Thank you for your response. You really put what I am seeing into perspective. Its absolutely crazy the way people just follow along with the craziness that is being fed to them. Thank goodness some of us have both eyes open.
The real problem is we have too much media exposure. We have 24 hour a day broadcasts and its to the point one network has to out scream the other network. I was a reporter. There are very few reporters working in television today.
Yes. The Kennedy's, all cheated on their wives & never worked in the private sector, but were accepted for relating to the common man, & being kind. Romney did work in private sector. Anyone who does that has done that can relate. Also, no
He doesn't get any courtesy BECAUSE he didn't struggle & is trying to cut funding to those who truly need it & is blaming nearly half the country of being lazy free loaders. And he thinks middle income is $200-250K. I work fulltime & don'
@ThompsonPen- Wow! Liberals think that only certain people have the right to courtesy. Who dictates those rules? He DOSE NOT think middle income is $250, but the liberals are trying to say he does. BTW-Obama is rich and did not EARN $$ working.
That's not what I said at all. I said people are not giving him that courtesy because of that. And it was a direct quote that he said on good morning america with George Stephanopoulos 9/14/12
Obama SAID numerous similar things that we overlook because he either did not say it correctly, or because it was not what he meant. ect. I don't believe Stephon Lib. or the Huffington liberal post, they are both connected 2 lies, propaganda.
I'm just saying it's not propaganda, he said it on television. filmed and everything. You're right, Obama probably does say silly things. I"m not saying he's perfect, no one is. I'm just saying why I'm not voting for Romney
U R not voting for Romney because he said 1 thing that U interpreted negatively. Obama has told business owners that we did not build our business. Used the murder of Ambassador as campaigning platform, ect. Its all on film too.
Oh honey they weren't afraid of Sarah palin. They were laughing at her. And so was I.
Frog is right. They were afraid of a woman who has a handsome doting husband as compared to Hilary and her cheater. Plus, she was a Mayor and Governor. The idiots who are brainwashed by liberal media were laughing because they listened to the BS.
we are all prone to social programming
Thank you for your comment. You are so right. Obama supporters are not even addressing the question/explanation. Instead they change the subject to Romney is rich. Obama is very rich too, but he did not get rich by earning in the private sector.
It's been released that in 2011, Romney paid 14% less tax than the rest.
Planned parenthood is more than abortions. It's protection from STDs & unwanted pregnancy. My body, my rights. Not your's, not the government's. Mine.
@ThompsonPen- He paid required limit of the law which is what anyone would do, including u. Its a free country. Those who do not agree w abortion should not be forced to paying for it. George Soros has enough $ to support if he were so charitable.
I agree, one should not pay for abortions if they don't want them. I'm pretty sure Planned parenthood is run by donations, and I'd like to see where Obama was giving "billions of $$$$" to planned parenthood. & if he did, i'm not sure it was our t
Having been a democrat in the past and decided to seek out some truth a few years ago, I hav found FOX nowhere near as biased as CNN. They also hav liberals and libertarians with their own shows, & presenting those viewpoints. Its apples and oran
What libs have a show? If you think it's apples and oranges than FOX has done its job! Both sides have biased "news" outlets doing their bidding. No point in arguing, but that's why you asked the question, right? :)
I just told U I was a democrat & became independent. News was biased. I discovered FOX is the least biased. I watched all channels to make that conclusion. All u can do is hurl brainwash insults. I spent time on it. Geraldo is a lib on FOX for 1
I think FOX is a tool of the right and MSNBC is a tool of the left. I've watched all channels to make that conclusion. Am I brainwashed? We all have our opinions. BTW, I was a hard-core Republican that became a lefty. Voted for Bush 41 and Obama.
I don't know how u could have truly been republican if you are now a liberal. But whatever! I grew up in socialist countries & will never merge left again. Life experience is a sobering teacher.
I feel the same way, I changed due to life experience. If you lived in socialist countries than you know that U.S. Dems are not very far left. Maybe we can agree that it's good we live in a country where we can argue about it openly.
Yes, democrats are not as far left as socialists, but they are leaning in that direction more & more. My goal is to hold onto my freedom as much as possible. Romney/Ryan 2012
Are you saying we should trust Obama? The man who promised debt reduction and spent almost 6T by himself? The man who promised transparency and shoved Obamacare down our throats from behind closed doors while Pelosi admitted no one read it first?
Do you trust Romney more? The idea of a man helping the majority, in this case, helping people with "Obamacare" is a good thing to me. You must be rich enough that you've had insurance your entire life and have never seen someone's financial life c
Of course you realize that many people will not be helped by Obamacare, they will be stuck paying the fine. Romney gave the best idea yet for healthcare. The only smart & efficient plan I have ever heard.
I"m not rich nor have I ever been. I have paid off medical bills over time as have many of us. Obamacare won't help the poor. It will kill them. You need to actually read it.
Touchy. I've heard of the opposite more often. Not everyone can pay their medical bills. Some people are grateful their loved ones die quickly. A month in a hospital can be too much for some to pay off.
My cousin died under government healthcare at 43. The hospital was short staffed by U.S. standards. After a minor operation she had a headache & there were no MDs around to catch what was happening. She had a grand mal seizure & died.
Obamacare requires a "panel" to decide care based off societal contribution. READ IT! Hitler had a similar panel. Free health care sounds great until you consider that the panel will stand between anyone needing the care and those providing it.
Yes, everyone please do as she says and read it. This "Death panel" rhetoric has been debunked by every fact checker out there, over and over. Also, there is someone standing between you and your healthcare provider now, the insurance companies.
I'l take anything over government healthcare. I'm a nurse & have tremendous experience w it. Business men telling healthcare professionals how to diagnose. It does'nt work, & the patients are the ones who suffer. "Fact checkers" R not trustwo
Amen Skarlet! My mother is a retired nurse of over 30 yrs. and she agrees. Any panel determining care is crazy, fact checks or not! One used to get care by right of being human. Now that gets ranked too. It's wrong.
You seem to be worried about a corporate type gaining control taking advantage of everyone who is not rich. It's a legitimate fear. Obama has done it since the day he was elected!
America needs a businessman not someone who wants to enslave us all.
Don't you think that's why a businessman would do? You don't make a profit off of health care, or helping off government funding, and I personally rely on that funding in more than one way. I'm a hard worker and not lazy, like much of the other 47%
corporate has gain control of our government. its call Fascist. these people only come to the people of the United States to con you to vote for then, we are enslave with the Repeal of Glass-Steagall act to the NDAA
He does not keep saying he is for a certain type of people and to hell with the rest. That is what the liberal media is trying to tell you he is saying. Obama DID talk about the election after our Ambassador was murdered. FACTS!
He said he doesn't care about the 47% "free loaders". That's saying to hell with the rest.
@ThompsonPen- Is it not obvious that he was saying, he can not be concerned about trying to get votes of people who are on welfare? Not- that he dosen't care about the people! What about the poor people who can't afford Obamacare?
@ ThompsonPen - No, I do not think that’s what a businessman would do. A good businessman, who has a working knowledge of economics as future President Romney has, knows that if you put your target consumer into bankruptcy you put yourself into bank
@poetvix- Beautiful! I get so tired of people saying crazy, and mindless things about business. Its interesting how Mitt Romney's business sense bothers people, while Obama's lack of knowledge and experience did not.
ThompsonPen- Romney did NOT say he to hell with the 47% he said it is obvious that the 47% who are on the Government dole are going to vote Democrat so he was not going to waste campaign dollars trying to change their minds - I would call that WISE!
Middle class disappearing, Obama killing business owners to the point of firing & leaning out business+ hurting people who invest. But, you said it. They want personality, so they vote for a guy who sings .BTW-Foot in mouth=Biden. But, that's Ok
Miss Skarlet ,like most of the people of the United Sates you know nothing about the repeal of the Glass Steagall Act . the main reason that no job are being created here, commercial banks only loans to who have and drain any others for Wall Street
@lostdogrwd- you, like most liberals are quick to judge people who do not think as you do. I am well informed and educated. I Run businesses and I know very well why I am not hiring. Strangling democratic policies!
