yeah, his "bold changes" are privatizing social security, voucherizing medicare, gutting medicaid that the elderly in nursing homes rely on and getting rid of all of the middle class deductions so they can cut taxes on the rich and corporations even more.

and we know the effects of his "bold changes" as outlined in the Tax Policy Center's analysis. Higher taxes for the middle class, tax cuts for the wealthy and corporations.

DES MOINES, Iowa - Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is calling for "bold changes" to help revive the nation's economy.... Romney did not unveil specific plans..." He never reveals specifics. Not on his plans to cut taxes for the wealthy, not on foreign policy, not on Bane Capital, not on the Olympics where he needed a Billion in federal financing to put on a mediocre Games. And he won't give us the specifics of his 2009 where he got amnesty for tax evasion. Never any specifics because we might just get to see the "man behind the curtain."

Within the loose framework of capitalism, the rich and powerful are clearly able to game the system. They hire slick tax lawyers. They employ smooth-talking lobbyists. They funnel millions to candidates most likely to preserve/advance their interests. They hide and invest their wealth where it’s lightly taxed, if at all. The dizzying rate at which the bulk of our nation’s wealth has been flowing upward to a very few hints at a system spinning dangerously out of whack. Some people seem rather nonchalant about this trend. In fact, they will give impetus to this trend by voting Nov. 6 for a venture capitalist with a proven track record of gaming the system.

"Bold Changes !?" Yes Mittens, I would say ruining the economy with more of Bushes ideas is bold.

Mitt is just too precious. He says Obama is playing silly word games but practices "trickle down government". During the last debate he chastised Obama for making personal attacks, then mentions the "apology tour". Funny how Obama mostly said during that tour that he was not going to be arrogant and combative like his predecessor, and for his truthfulness it became an apology tour. I am afraid that Mitt cannot even recognize truth.

Here are the specifics: The one and only thing the man cares about and stands for is more money for the wealthy. All the rest is theater and manipulation to get his hands on the power.

drichmn - "yeah, his "bold changes" are privatizing social security, voucherizing medicare, gutting medicaid that the elderly in nursing homes rely on and getting rid of all of the middle class deductions so they can cut taxes on the rich and corporations even more." ----------- And Obama's plan is......? Put it on the credit card? Oh, can you show me the source where only "the rich" taxes are lowered? Source please.

I know the changes - busting the unions, cutting government jobs, put taxes cuts & military spending on a credit card, austerity for seniors and low class programs.... this is what the republicans have a history of doing - take alook at the other states they've had control of over the past 2 years!
