Nope sorry dusty old oreo, what's sick is the lying scum Obama who lied about Romney, while the sick liberal mainstream media continually lied about Romney for the past 4 years. They painted him as inhuman with no feelings that only cares about the rich, all lies. Obama was like a little boy spanked and ready to cry, why because Romney exposed him for the liar that he is. Obama looked dumb because he is dumb. A person could easily write a 500 page book describing all of Obama's lies. The most recent, covering up a terrorist attack in Libiya so he dosen't have to say a terror attack occured during his administration. Those were American heros that were killed. Obamas administration lied to protect him, I have never seen such corrupt evil people. Obamas ugly evil smile makes me sick, why does he have that ugly arrogant smile.

Dusty, you need to watch that 2016 movie that's on Youtube right now. It's not a scathing report on Obama, it just explains how he thinks and what he has planned for the USA. You may think it's all A-OK, or maybe your not as liberal as you think???

Hey Dawson... It was the GOP candidates that were calling him a liar, flip-flopper & etch-a-sketch rich candidate. Depending on the audience, Romney changes his position. He was even caught on tape explaining how little he thinks of the middle class. In addition, his company is the pioneer of out sourcing jobs overseas. Not illegal, but that is the biggest problem we have regarding jobs - in 10 years, over 55,000 manufacturing "companies" closed down & moved overseas. Again, not illegal, but what needs to be done is a creative way of creating or bringing back a lot of those jobs. Again, to quote the other GOP candidates, "Romney is completely focused on whats best for the rich"...again, nothing illegal about that, but when was the last time we had a President that had so much money in foreign banks? Never! Again, it's not illegal, but I feel that with our current economy, it's not very patriotic. Not taxing the rich more and not eliminating loopholes has been tried for over ten years and where did that get us. I'm Republican, but we could have done a lot better than Romney (Joe Scarborough, etc...) And last, since we started televising debates we've only had seven (Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush, Clinton, Bush, Obama) with incumbents challenged and Clinton is the only one that won the first debate! One big reason for this factoid, while the challenger is rehearsing 24/7, the incumbent is running the country too! All this anger and hate has to stop...

I was going to say..God bless America. I'm just not sure if it would be proper for Obama to bless himself.
