    That is an oxymoron!

    "Jumbo shrimp" is an oxymoron. The word you were looking for is "contradiction." The fact that you didn't know this is "irony."

    Nice try, though (that one's "sarcasm").

    Romney is for something until his new voters would prefer he's against something until the polls change and then he's for something.

    Misleading thread title: I thought he was handing out magic underwear.. or at least 100 ways to sidestep taxes by secreting wealth in secret offshore tax shelters. Disappointing.

    You could also call that statement
    highly intelligent educated people, who just so happen to be liberal.
    redundant.

    Guess what... yes there is a lot of Obama bashing from the his opponent, because he is after all the incumbent. That's how it works. When Bush ran against Kerry, it was the same deal.
    Romney has never been president, but he did a good job as governor in Massachusetts. He has taken on more responsibility and has a proven track record. He worked with Democrats to get things done. He turned things around. If you want something pro-Romney as opposed to anti-Obama here you go:

    By the time Mitt Romney took office as governor of Massachusetts, the upcoming state budget for that year would have a structural deficit of nearly $3 billion if the budget was not cut. [3]Furthermore, the existing budget passed the previous year, that would be in effect for several more months, had a projected total deficit of approximately $1.2 billion [4]. He inherited about a $650 million deficit in that budget by the time he took office. [5]
    Governor Romney convinced the legislature to allow him to immediately make changes to the existing budget. He immediately slashed spending and balanced that budget. [6] He then balanced each of the four annual budgets he created. He was dealing with a veto-proof legislature that was 85% democrat, but he was able to 'hold the line on all the spending that the democrats up there wanted to do.' [7] The budgets he submitted, fought for and succeeded in obtaining not only were balanced each year, but provided a surplus of $700 million in 2004, [8] nearly $1 billion in 2005[9a],[9b],[9c] and a surplus of $700 million in 2006. He balanced the budget every year without raising taxes.[10] By the end of his term, he had taken "Massachusetts from billions in deficit to billions in surplus". [11] He turned in a $2 billion rainy day fund at the end of his term in office. [12]
    The unemployment rate in Massachusetts had doubled from January 2001 to January 2003, the year Romney took office, and was continuing to increase at a fast rate. He implemented pro-growth policies and programs. By summer the increase in unemployment had stopped and by fall unemployment was dropping.[13] While Massachusetts was 50th, or nearly the worst in the nation in the increase in unemployment rates the year that just ended when he took office, he got it down to 38th place by the end of his first year in office. [14] The unemployment rate continued to rapidly drop for nearly two years, hit a plateau for about a year and a half, then started dropping again at the end of his term of office (see chart below). The year he left office (2007), the trend in Massachusetts' unemployment rate was 12th in the nation [15], a big improvement from the 50th place it was in the year he won office.

    Ask yourself how stimulus money has positively impacted your lives. How the creation of 159 new federal agencies due to Obamacare could possibly be a good thing? How does caving-in to union pressure (Rahm Emanuel style) helps to bring down government costs to a country that is already hemorrhaging massive debt? How does not meeting with foreign leaders can possibly help with diplomacy related issues?

    Obama = more government intervention in your lives (the very definition of socialism) - examples are Obamacare/the Auto bailout/numerous regulations (see environmental regulations or restrictions on drilling for example)

    Romney = reducing the size of what has become a bloated government - starting with Obamacare

    If you have ever complained about the DMV, the Post Office, fought a traffic ticket, etc. You realize how inefficient or how poorly run the government can be. Now imagine if that same aggravation made up 90% of your daily life.

    I lean libertarian, and I want the guy that wants less government in my life, rather than more. That's obviously not Obama, so yes by default that would be Romney.


    Here's the response I am expecting to get.

    Is this Glenn Beck????

    Please don't refer to yourself as libertarian leaning or libertarian while supporting and voting for Romney. It gives the real libertarians a bad name.

    Wow, deep bud, and you know what, you're right.

    Of course you fail to mention how much the democratic partisan idiots are EXACTLY THE SAME.

    Please, tell me what has happened to that oh so special time for the anti war movement during the Bush administration. What happened to all those people, seriously?

    Tell me what CONCRETE convictions the democratic followers hold?

    Are you that frigin blind?

    Theres a bit of a difference between an entire party and a individual politician. All parties continue to evolve because the world keeps evolving. That said, political convictions usually stay concrete for decades. Abortion rights for women have been largely defended by the left for at least 4 decades. Romney changed his view on that when it was convenient.



    You seem very annoyed at Democrats for the current attitudes towards foreign policy. Yes, Democrats actively preached about stopped the wars during Bush. Now they are quiet when Obama is in office. That said, we have been stopping the wars and our involvement in foreign affairs has been scaled back. That is fairly consistent with current democratic political goals. Libya was handled far differently then Republicans wanted. Syria has been handled far differently then Republicans have wanted. There is direction and degrees. The direction might be the same, but the degree is far different. The main party that wants a complete removal from the area is Libertarian...and im certain those followers would rather run into traffic before being labeled a democrat.

    It is tough to tell the two candidates apart without visuals anyway. Obama has been an awful President, but has also been the best President since Eisenhower. Romney is one of the best Republican candidates in a while, but that is not really a ringing endorsement. Obama is going to win handily and nothing will change anyway, though.
