I like how we're not allowed to ask Romney about Mormonism or his taxes but where Obama was born and whether he's a Christian or not are totally legitimate subjects.

he has released several years
several being 1 complete year and 1 estimate :? ..... if he releases them and has paid his fair share there is no way that the left will criticize him more than they currently are for not releasing them. This doods incredibly shady, what about all of his money being held in swiss bank accounts too.

Regardless of political viewpoints, religious background, personal opinions on how to run a country, economical viewpoints, family traditions and everything else.


How is it that obviously below average intelligent people, if not downright stupid, can run for president? I mean, don't get me wrong: I'm not saying this only happen in the United States: our own minister of culture for example is a fiendishly dumb tnuc of a woman who's destroying every bit of alternative culture left and it really is a pain in my heart.

But honestly, figures like Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney, McCain, that woman with the big boobies....they have proven live and on air again and again that they are horribly stupid. Why don't people see this?

On the other hand, to anyone paying the slightest bit of attention to facts, Ryan’s speech was an apparent attempt to set the world record for the greatest number of blatant lies and misrepresentations slipped into a single political speech. On this measure, while it was Romney who ran the Olympics, Ryan earned the gold.

The good news is that the Romney-Ryan campaign has likely created dozens of new jobs among the legions of additional fact checkers that media outlets are rushing to hire to sift through the mountain of cow dung that flowed from Ryan’s mouth. Said fact checkers have already condemned certain arguments that Ryan still irresponsibly repeated.

Wub, you have to concede that medicare as projected is an unfunded liability that is only going to increase exponentially as more baby boomers retire, and the proportion that is put on the nations credit card is going up up up

its not about "gutting" medicare.. its about being HONEST with the american people and FIXING medicare.

we are making promises that WE CANNOT KEEP! The money doesnt exist! its just piled onto our debt and the can is kicked down the road until we have another financial meltdown because we accumulated so much debt and liabilities

while it would be nice to think that we can just "get the rich to pay their fair share" and tax them to fund these things its mathematically impossible... look at the numbers bruv...

Paul Ryan's plan at least has a clear vision and realistic goals and has some bipartisan support, he even worked with some democrats in putting together the bulk of it

He's pulling the rug out from people under the age of 55 and in such a cack handed way that he's actually going to add more to the US debt if the real cuts won't kick in til 2023...and TBH, after his speech yesterday he's not done himself any favours.

Hillary Clinton started the "birther" movement in 2008 during the democratic primary bruv when she was trying to get the nomination... hate to break it to you... Yeah some people have brought it up but to say that its a "legitimate subject" is a stretch... no one who matters is really talking about this anymore

And cmon, people have hammered Romney for letting his dog ride on top of the car 30 years ago....

these are stupid distractions that neither side needs

anyway im done with this... carry on...

it just really irks me that people are so brainwashed by media to think that republicans = evil rich white people... im not evil, or white, or rich!

open your eyes, read a different newspaper or channel, dont be so gullible

no side is 100% right or wrong.

I dont think Obama is "stupid" or "evil" I just think he has bad ideas, and I think the last 4 years its pretty obvious that his fix for the economy hasnt worked
