    Absolutely not! But we also don't need a liar and a traitor, either.

    Hollywood handsome Romney is good at flip-flopping. In fact, amongst news commentators, he's famous for it.

    But the silver-tongued devil himself, Obama, is a more sinister flip-flopper. Promise everything and deliver almost nothing.

    What's worse about Obama is that he's,
    * Trashing the Constitution and Bill of Rights more than Bush
    * Accelerating the national debt more than Bush -- now a whopping $15.3 TRILLION!
    * Every bit as much a warmonger as Bush, but treasonously bypassing Congress in another undeclared war against Libya, which did nothing against us and the CIA "freedom fighters" seem to be good at creating false-flag operations to elicit more profits for the military industrial complex.
    * And committing treason just like Bush. Obama had the gall to suggest that Congress was irrelevant, but the U.N. was boss when it came to going to war. Obama also had the gall to float the idea of bypassing Congress altogether and ignoring the Supreme Court, effectively suggesting a 1-Branch government: Emperor!

    So, if you had a choice, who would you vote for -- Hitler or Stalin?

    President Ron Paul. It's no longer about party politics. It's about saving what's left of America!

    Two choices: A socialist, or a businessman. France elected to vote for a socialist: tax the rich and spend money... The Euro is faced with a growing fear of collapse. France refuses austerity.
    Our president reflects a failure of social experiments. We are not better off today than we were four years ago. We have millions of unemployed who are not among the stats of unemployed who have run out of "benefits." They have become the "nameless" masses of non-being... Food stamps has use has increased exponetially.
    The "businessman" is not the ideal, but he is a better choice than the existing philosphy of tax and spend.
    At present almost half of the people pay no taxes. The top 2% pay almost half of the taxes!

      Another jujitsu from the paranoid Fox News Parrot Gallery.  There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; and the other is to refuse to accept what is true. The right-wing has been in control of the French Government for 18 yrs.

      Is it not true the new self proclaimed president of France is a self-proclaimed "tax and spend" politician?

    Romney's not a businessman, he's a full-time, professional politician. If he wins, he'll replace another full-time, professional politician.

    Flip a coin.

      Funny, Romney calls himself a businessman and touts his skills as one.

    I don't need or want Romney because he is a clown. Technically, he meets my standards for government experience because he was a state Governor.

    He cannot stop proving that he does not have the sense to run a nation.

    I cannott care less about business experience. That is not government experience.

    In California, we let  Meg Whitman and that other woman know it.

      Romney is a long ways from being a "Clown".  Romney is Both Intelligent and Educated.  And so is Obama.  Neither is the right person for the job.  Obama's record clearly speaks for itself - DISMAL.  Both are heavily bankrolled by Goldman Sach's.

    It is either him or Obama and Obama has to go. At least it will take Romney a while to get where Obama is now. We know Obama will have much more room to deal if he is re-elected. That was heard out of his mouth. Probably one of the few times he was not lying.

    Who was the last?  In my lifetime there has been nothing but Career Politicians, and WORSE Lawyers.

    We are once again going to be forced to select from the lesser of two evils, even though Ron Paul is technically in the race because of the way Delegates work. The popular vote does NOT matter.  That means YOUR vote does not matter.  We do not actually elect a president.  It's a guise.  Bankers control this country through their manipulation of currency.  They FUND Corporate America and they FUND the lobbyists through those connections.

    The Federal Reserve which is NOT a Federal Agency has complete Autonomy over everything that happens in this country.  If they want to take what you have they take it.  Citizens of the world are ALL SLAVES to Central Banks which are run by a very small group of Elitists.  Don't think so? They name the Shareholders of the Federal Reserve Bank?  You can't?  Well one is known to be Goldman Sachs. Most are not known because it's a PRIVATE ORGANIZATION and they hide behind Corporate Privacy laws which they put into place.

    Neither Obama or Romney will speak out against the Federal Reserve because BOTH are OWNED.

    So we get to choose the lesser of two evils - sort of.  Again after the Delegates in the Primaries we have the Electoral College in the Election.

    The bottom line is whomever the Bankers want in power will be in power.  The tide is turning against Obama because he has been a horrible employee and has botched so many things up he is making Wall Street look bad.  However it was not his fault things got botched up in the first place, but it is his fault in how he chose to deal with it.

    The Obama Administration has made no attempt to Prosecute Wall Street Crime because his Administration like Bush's before him is a revolving door between Wall Street and Washington DC.

    One thing for Sure is that the United States is not getting better.

    And one major factor that is going to put Obama in the Retirement Home back in Hawaii is his lack of ability to do anything at all about Employment.

    "The jobs picture for young people is especially bleak; the April unemployment rate for workers under 25 was 16.4 percent—double the overall national rate; as many as half of recent college graduates are unemployed or underemployed; younger workers have fared worse than any other age group in terms of recovering from the hammer blows of 2008."

    I think that the biggest problem we face is that really there is nobody who is competent to lead our nation. The job is too complex. Nobody has the courage to do what is right. Our nation is too divided to join together and solve the problems. We need a leader who can pull us together. I don't see anyone like that on the horizon.
