Denial, anger, blame. Until the Republican party accepts the fact that the majority of the population rejected their failed polices, they will continue to lose elections. They shamelessly believed that they could spend hundreds of millions of dollars on negative ads, and do everything possible to suppress the vote and put another puppet in the White House. That may have worked 12 years ago, but not now.
You guys don't get it. Republican = Good, Democrat = Evil.
Nothing else matters. All you need to know is in the simple formula above.
This issue has been settled. It is foolhardy to spend taxpayer monies to fight this battle yet again. You may disagree, but you are wrong. It is time to move on.
The economy performs better under Democrats than Republicans. Facts are stubborn things.
The stupidest thing that the Republicans did at their convention was to ask the question "Are you better off than you were four years ago?". It was dumber than the lies that they told. It was dumber than the Clint Eastwood speech. It reminded us all of George Bush and the terrible mess that we were in at the end of his term. The resounding answer to the question is Hell Yes we are better off than we were four years ago. Thank you very much.
Of course I could live without AC. My parents did not have AC until I was in High School. People have lived without AC for several million years before the 20th century.
Would I like it? Hell No!

ITguy, is that I thug guy?*
IT stands for Information Technology. The IT department is involved in gathering data and then presenting that data to management so that a rational decision can be reached. But I suspect that you knew that. Tell me, what has lead you to think that IT would stand for "I Thug"? Thug is a noun, "I Thug" doesn't make any sense. By the way, what does "degage" mean?
Romney/Ryan... RR... I guess they want to remind us of Ronald Reagan. Reminds me of Rolls Royce.
Well, no reply to my post of 6:19 am.
The issue is not how much money Romney has, or even how he made his fortune. The issue is that we have serious economic problems in this country that are compounded by the globalization of or economy. The Republican solution is to reduce regulation and further cut taxes. This is supposed to stimulate investment and create jobs. There is absolutely no evidence that this strategy will work. None. The wealthy invest their wealth in places where they can get the greatest return on their investment. Nothing wrong with that, but there is no reason to believe that they will invest their tax cuts in companies that will create American jobs. In fact the opposite is true. They are far more likely to create jobs in Mexico than in the USA.
Let's get real folks. The super wealthy in this world have one goal and that is to get more wealthy. They do not care about America other than the fact that our military might insures that the global economy continues to functiuon. You would think that they would be willing to pay for that military as a cost of doing business, but they would rather burden my grandchildren with that debt.
I would love to read some honest solutions as to how we are going to create middle class jobs in this country. I have not heard any from the Republican party.
