You keep bringing up facts and the new GOP won't like you... If he borrowed the company into debt to get market share and used Federal funds and favors to bail it out when the going got tough, that is what Bush did as governor of Texas. So we have a Bush clone? That can't be all bad... at least he doesn't have an arrogant "I have the answers to fix what's 'wrong' " running mate.... oh...

I find that Republicans aren't even good at being Republicans. I mean can they manage a business?

Romney: only one tax return; no info on offshore investments; no record on Olympic activity; won't discuss time as governor; won't discuss Romneycare; won't discuss Bain activity during the time he says he wasn't involved; won't discuss specific plans for the economy; and runs away fast as he can from almost any subject requiring a substantive answer. There's very little that this man will commit to or reveal, yet in his grandiosity, he believes that he deserves to be president?!

[ I'm amazed that you could even consider voting for Obama who doesn't even have the experience for you to get upset over!]*******Well, Obama has something Romney doesn't: FOUR YEARS of solid experience as president of the United States. Romney's been running for president for almost ten years and doesn't have an ounce of presidential experience to show for it.

"With those sorts of questions I'm amazed that you could even consider voting for Obama who doesn't even have the experience for you to get upset over!"-----RU seriously suggesting that WMR has more experience for running this country than BHO? Should I repeat the question?

Actually, this country does not turn, economically, on a dime. The person who got us into this mess by deregulating banks, bailing out Wall Street, Starting a war while slashing revenue was another business man/governor. Making and losing money is not the same as leading and governing.

"What does it mean that Obama's profession was community organizer?" Actually, the same qualities that make for a successful community organizer are more appropriate to the job of President than are the qualities needed for running a company. In one you get people working together, and in the other you get people spending money on your product... Hey, maybe that explains why the modern Republicans have such a miserable record as government leaders - they think it's about numbers and getting people to give them money.

"What does it mean that Obama's profession was community organizer?"---------Actually, Obama's professions (four) were attorney, constititional law professor, state senator, and U.S. senator. (He's actually got a lot more education and work experience than Paul Ryan) It's only the Obama haters who insist that he's only been a "community organizer".
