Romney is sounding more like Obama every day. We need a choice, not another democrat in the race. Romney has gone back on his pledge to cut taxes and now is saying he'll keep abortion legal. We could have had Rick Santorum, but we got fooled by Romney instead. Now he's showing us that he's always been a Republican In Name Only. We need Romney to keep his word to us, to the party, and to the country.

This is just never going to work for the GOP. Bush left this country in a disaster. Obama has put the country back on the tracks. Now the GOP wants to criticize for not doing it fast enough and they want to go back to the same policies that almost destroyed the country. And now Romney can't explain a single issue that he is trying to run on?????? It's almost laughable.

Romney truly is a charlatan nonpareil. Two weeks ago, he said 47% of Americans are victims, supported abortion only in the case of rape or saving the life of the mother, wanted to cut taxes 20% across the board, and eliminate the estate tax. Today, he's "sorry" about the 47% comments, won't roll back freedom of choice, and won't reduce taxes paid by the rich. This man desperately wants to be president, and he clearly will do or say anything to make that happen. It will be interesting to see which Romney shows up in debate #2.

Romney seems like a decent guy when he is in his wealthy bubble and everyone around him is the same. But I'm sorry, the lies to average Americans clearly disqualify him from the Presidency. Can you imagine this guy as President? We could never trust anything he might say.

Mitt, make sure to remind everyone in Ohio how much you were against the auto bailout. Or are you for it now? I can't keep track any more what you are for and against, especially since the debates, where you changed your mind on every major issue. I heard you are Pro-Choice now.

Voter registration is down 44% in Democratic stronghold Cuyuhoga County and nearly a half million statewide. Meanwhile Romney is gaining momentum by the minute. Bearing this in mind it is more then likely that Romney will win Ohio and the Presidency. Joe Biden's inevitably embarrassing performance in tomorrow night's debate will further cement the ever increasing chances of a Romney victory. It will take something of epic proportions to stop the Romney tidal wave and the left wing rants of "liar liar pants on fire" will do nothing to increase Obama's diminishing chances.

" I want to help the middle class get good jobs and better take-home pay. I know how to do that." ... really? that's not at all what Bain Capital did. It had nothing whatever to do with getting good jobs with better take-home pay for the middle class. It was about making money for their shareholders. He didn't run any of those companies that Bain took over. He negotiated the deals. And when companies went bankrupt he stuck the federal government with pension costs.

"We need Romney to keep his word to us, to the party, and to the country." .... ha, that's a laugh. Wasn't it Santorum who called him a well-oiled weather-vane?

Biden may surprise the righties tomorrow. Not likely to hold back any punches like Obama did and both R's are giving him plenty of material to punch at.
