Deezus,

I'm beginning to think I'm more libertarian! I like some of what each candidate says. AND, I really really despise a lot of what both candidates are saying --- so now I'm stuck with if I turn off all the negative ads can I get enough information about what each candidate is about? Obama said a lot of things that he later changed after he got in office, perhaps because he understood what more of the picture was? I personally don't see how any president can "fix" an economy. I don't think any economist really knows how to either. I am tired of bashing and name calling of presidents. I hated the decisions both Bush and Obama had to make, and I have no way of proving things would have been better or worse if the opposite decision had been made. I don't think Obama caught Osama bin Laden any more than I believe that Bush caught Sadam. And, I knew that Obama was naive when he thought he could close GitMo. Both Bush and Obama have been faulted for releasing prisoners of "whatever we are fighting". Obama took credit for some things he voted against (before he was elected), so either that doesn't hurt a candidate hence Romney repeating the assertion --- or Romney needs new advisors.
I am on the side that this assertion of saving Detroit makes less than NO sense either factually or politically!

Unfortunately, I get caught up in logic and logistics a lot and that makes both candidates, often, look like they aren't listening to what they are saying.

I'm good at playing the devil's advocate, but this one isn't even a close call.

To anyone who thinks we should have let the automakers die:

What would we have done, had they gone under in the Great Depression? How would we have mobilized for war against Germany and Japan?

We need our manufacturing base.

It's interesting that I haven't seen any of the conservatives come on here and defend Romney.

Mitt is a legend in his own mind..Now his job is to convince the rest of us!!

Deezus,

I should have said that better, at one point I thought Romney was a viable candidate. Hopping around on one foot with the other one in your mouth doesn't make one look particularly presidential!!!! (Much less defendable!)

Mitt Romney shall save the Union, and all that makes America great. He is the American Dream personified. He is the glory of American Capitalism wrought in the flesh. He saved Detroit. He shall save the entire nation. And then -- the world.

Mitt invented the printing press. Oxygen.

Vote for Mitt, he's on all sides of history!

Mitt reminds me of the cartoon kid who always imagines himself as saving the world.

And it is never true. It's just his imagination.
