    Yes, just like I predicted. My state Wisconsin has finally lurched over to Romney for 2012. It took some time but people are figuring out Obama/Biden are liars and fear mongerers and have nothing to campain on except to slam, slander, demonize and throw out stupid tag lines and BS to get re-elected. No plans, no ideas, just status quo.

    Like I said before, once Scott Walker won the election for Governor and had begun to reform our state, it would really opened the eyes of taxpayers that we can get out of a fiscal mess if we just put our faith in the right people. I also said that if Obama loses Wisconsin he will lose the white house. Wisconsin is going to change the direction of the country back on the right path. You can just feel it.

    More good from Florida. Granny wasnt scared to hear about reforming medicare and doesnt believe the Obama/Biden lies. Romney leads in florida by a few points. I think Ryan won over Colorado voters. It wont be long untill North Carolina and Virginia see the light. Ohio will be the biggie to follow. The only state I might get wrong is Minnesota....come on gophers! wake up !!

    The Ryan announcement was a great move by Romney. They are taking the issues to the voters and giving them a choice unlike Obama who says nothing about the future of our country and cant explain his medicare cuts or how to solve the debt he piled up.

    Would you like to explain yourself on how Obama's team is doing the fearmongering and not Romney/Ryan ? seems to me you have this backward by a whole lot. Also it happens to be Romney/Ryan that want to stick with the 'bush' status quo that got us in this mess in the first place. You need to give some facts to base your republican talking points on ?

    To continue your train analogy, the driver is still scratching his balls, trying to figure out how to get the train moving, while the steward is walking through the carriages telling the passengers in Middle Class how the very rough ride ahead will be really good for them and giving First Class passengers fluffy cushions to pad their asses with.

    And not forgetting gay passengers, who are welcome, provided they sit quietly at the back.

    I like what a commentor Mr Swartz gives as examples of how Romney Ryan are missing the train.



    Saying that Obama does not want to address the severe economic issues that face the US is ridiculous. I hope that voters will consider the following realities:

    1. Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, and other Republicans are promoting policies similar to or often worse than those that had such disastrous results during the Bush administration, including converting a three-year major surplus, which was on track to completely eliminate the total federal debt, into a major deficit, creating very few net jobs (none in the private sector), and leaving the country on the brink of a depression, with an average of 750,000 jobs being lost during its last three months.

    2. Republicans have obstructed efforts to get our country out of the tremendous ditch they left us in by voting no on and sometimes filibustering many Democratic proposals, some of which they previously supported and sometimes even co-sponsored. Hence, it is not surprising that a recent poll showed that 49% of Americans believe that Republican Congress members are purposely sabotaging the U.S. economy in order to defeat Obama and other Democrats, while only 40% disagree.

    3.. Republicans support continued tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans and highly profitable corporations, while basic social services that middle class and poor people depend on are being cut and teachers, police officers, fire fighters, and others are losing their jobs.

    4. Republican legislators have voted against providing funds to save jobs of teachers, police officers, and fire fighters, providing unemployment benefits to long-time unemployed people, and providing medical benefits to 9/11 responders.

    5. Republicans are generally in denial about the tremendous dangers from climate change, in spite of a very strong consensus in peer-reviewed articles in scientific journals and statements by scientific academies all over the world that climate change is a major threat, largely caused by human activities, and the many wake-up calls we have been receiving in terms of severe storms, tornados, floods, heat waves, droughts, and wildfires,. Anyone who thinks that climate change is a hoax promoted by liberals should visit the website of the “Republicans for Environmental Protection.” (www.rep.org) . This conservative group was only able to endorse four percent of Republicans in the 2010 U.S. midterm elections because so many Republicans are in denial about climate change and other environmental threats. Paul Ryan is a climate denier and has a miserable record on the environment. Please check out http://truth-out.org/news/item/10855-meet-paul-ry...

    6. The Republican Party has moved far to the right under the influence of the Tea Party. There are very few moderate Republicans in Congress today.

    While Democratic policies have not always lived up to our hopes, largely due to Republican obstructionism, a return to Republican rule would be a nightmare.

    According to some of the following polls the Romney / Ryan Train will be leaving a lot of its 'passengers' (voters) behind.



    House Republicans are panicking.

    Mitt Romney's decision to name Paul Ryan as his VP has nationalized Ryan's radical right-wing budget. Ryan's plan to turn Medicare into a voucher program is front-page news across the country -- and it's killing House Republicans in their reelection campaigns.

    Politico reports House Republicans are so panicked that John Boehner had to schedule a major conference call to calm them down.

    So, what's the Republican plan to counterattack? Lie about Democrats' plans and try to convince the American public that Republicans are trying to "save" Medicare.




    Ryan's plan to voucherize Medicare was a huge liability for Republicans -- even before Romney named him as VP. Need proof? Just check out these polling numbers we got back last week in four of our Dean Dozen candidates' districts:

    Question: If you were faced with the choice of two candidates -- one who supported preserving Medicare and Social Security without any cuts, and one who advocated for transitioning to a privatized voucher system -- for whom would you vote?
    •CA-10 - Voters would vote for the candidate who would preserve Medicare 67-15

    •CO-06 - Voters would vote for the candidate who would preserve Medicare 59-22

    •NH-01 - Voters would vote for the candidate who would preserve Medicare 64-18

    •PA-08 - Voters would vote for the candidate who would preserve Medicare 67-16

    Now that Paul Ryan is on the ticket, the Republican plan to voucherize Medicare is a national news story and a huge political loser for House Republicans.

    Simply put: Paul Ryan's plan to turn Medicare into a voucher program puts the House in play.

    I was on the phone with someone at a private equity al la Bain early this afternoon -- also located in Boston -- and it seems many in Massachusetts are leaning to Romney/Ryan. While I would not predict a Romney/Ryan win in Massachusetts such a win would be no surprise.

    Now wouldn't that be the "go fuck off" message to RJ Liberals? icon_biggrin.gif

    Wow, someone in private equity is leaning Romney? Shocking!
    Do you have another news flash to share?

    Yes, if he actually won his home state that would be quite the

    With Ryan on the ticket it WOULD be the "go fuck off win."

    Anyway, I'm actually not a Bain fan. Personal freedom and personal choices are also allowed in equities you know -- unless you are a Communist you thinks otherwise. So yes, they can run amoke. I would hope you place input into your retirement system investments so you influence their "social" responsibilit. After all, it is your money. icon_biggrin.gif

    you're delusional. as if those people you were speaking with are representative of the country as a whole, nor do they have any kind of sway amongst us or the intelligent, free-thinking people of this country for that matter.

    you can take several seats and go shave your back now.

    The 2012 election might also be more racially driven in a way that '08 wasn't.

    Setting aside ideological differences, you don't get a ticket more super-white than Romney Ryan. This is every closet bigots dream team, one they were denied in '08.

    true: McCain is white, but he picked Palin,

    also true: Palin is white . but she's a bat-shit crazy woman , and (white male GOP POV) women like that belong in the kitchen , pain-med rehab, or spurned for a younger mistress, not in the boardroom/oval office. Definitely not the dream team.

    I think by picking ryan, the GOP attempts to game the race issue, to win. Another reason they need to raise the blinds at the country club to see how diverse the US is.

    YOU CAN'T HIDE YOUR RYAN LIES

    After seeking millions of dollars from a federal stimulus program he opposed on grounds it would not help the economy, Republican vice presidential candidate Rep. Paul Ryan then appeared on a Boston talk radio program and denied he lobbied the Obama administration for the home state aid.

    On October 28, 2010, after the Wisconsin Republican penned at least five letters to two federal departments seeking grants under the Obama administration’s economic recovery package, Ryan responded to a caller on WBZ’s Nightside with Dan Rea who asked if he sought any of the money.

    Ryan said that he would not vote against something “then write to the government to ask them to send us money.” “I did not request any stimulus money,” he continued. In response to a request from the Boston Globe, the CBS affiliate replayed the audio for a reporter on Thursday. Ryan’s campaign spokesman, Brendan Buck, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

    Haha, for the win.

    I swear, after Obama wins Wisconsin, Colorado, and Ohio and easily gets to 270+, I'm going to resurect every one of these delusional right-wing threads. Sorry, but voters are not going to vote for the gay bashing tax cheat Romney who pays barely 13% in taxes nor his running mate Ryan who wants to eliminate or outlaw student loans, public pre-schools, Medicare for seniors, Latino immigration, Medicaid for the poor, health care for the uninsured, Social Security, birth control and the minimum wage in order to cut taxes for the rich so Romney gets to pay even less in taxes than he already does.

    Republicans are delusional if they think voters are going to fall for this crap.

    For someone talking a lot about racism, you definitely throw the sexist card in there. I don't think you know anything about Sarah Palin.
