protector, you need to get the clue. Mr Romney wants to eliminate the desire for US jobs to be outsourced. Under current policy it is the way to go in order to make a profit. As a business owner the decision to ship jobs overseas was a responsible one for his stock holders.
When elected president he want to make the decision to keep the jobs here to be the responsible one.
When he ran Bain Capital he was not making policy decisions, but business decisions. Two different hats.

The media is calling it a win for Obama but along with that stating, will it really matter at this point.
Polls showed that Romney was viewed as looking Presidential and came off as a leader.
Bottom line the "needle" will not budge a bit which is bad news for Obama.
We will see an increase in posts from the lefties in the next two weeks about how it does not matter who wins, Obama does not care if he wins, the country will crash anyway and some more yawns from flyhawk.

I kept track of interuptions, just for the lefties;
O - 18 interuptions
S - seven interuptions
R - one interuption, only to tell the O that he was wrong
R was classy, cool and steady while the O looked like he was scrambling for yards and desperate. Today, the O does know what his ass looks like!

Grace 10/23/2012 10:14:10 AM Report
The Electoral College is an example of an indirect election, consisting of 538 electors who officially elect the President and Vice President of the United States. The number of electors is equal to the total voting membership of the United States Congress, 435 Representatives and 100 Senators, plus three electors from the District of Columbia. Article II, Section 1, Clause 2 of the Constitution specifies the number of electors to which each state is entitled and state legislatures decide how they are chosen.
Voters in each state and the District of Columbia cast ballots selecting electors pledged to presidential and vice presidential candidates. In nearly all states, electors are awarded on a winner-take-all basis to the candidate who wins the most votes in that state. Although electors are not required by federal law to honor a pledge, in the overwhelming majority of cases they vote for the candidate to whom they are pledged. The Twelfth Amendment provides for each elector to cast one vote for President and one vote for Vice President. It also specifies how a President and Vice President are elected. The Twenty-third Amendment specifies how many electors the District of Columbia is entitled to have.
Critics argue that the Electoral College is inherently undemocratic and gives swing states disproportionate influence in electing the President and Vice President. Proponents argue that the Electoral College is an important, distinguishing feature of federalism in the United States and that it protects the rights of smaller states. Numerous constitutional amendments have been introduced in the Congress seeking to alter the Electoral College or replace it with a direct popular vote.

I'd say Romney "won" the debate last night. (surprise, eh?)
He was poised, calm, clear, spoke with conviction; and did not attack Obie. When he spoke it wasn't fluff or verbal diahrrea; it was solid. He was dignified, and a gentleman, and several times acknowledged agreement with Obie.
He looked and spoke downright "Presidential". His best lines were when he summarized what he has actually achieved as a leader, in business and government, over many years and in many roles.
Obie was on the defense all night, often stammering his usual empty rhetoric; and spent most of the time personally attacking Romney.
Showed explicitly that Romney is an achiever, and Obie is a talker. If I were voting, I'd pick an achiever over a talker any day; but we know how many voters are duped by celebrity talkers.
I'd give that debate to Romney, though I doubt if it will have any impact on the election results.
Likely 4 more years of (no) Hope and (negative) Change with Obie.

As for your difficulty hearing---both of you like to interpret, in your own way, what you hear---even if it is not accurate.
I heard Romney say that he would increase the Armed Forces much larger than it is now---What will he do with all those extra forces ?---well, start another unnecessary war with, probably, Iran and restart the Cold War with Russia who Romney thinks is the # 2 Threat to the U.S.A. after Iran.
That would lower the Deficit wouldn't it !
I also heard Romney say that he would bring back all the Companies who went to China, including several Companies that he had Investments with. I wish him good luck with that one.
I heard Romney would repeal the new Obamacare Health System where about 40 Million more Americans could get Health Care Insurance who could not afford it before. Romney would sooner have those 40 Million people without any Health Care as it was before. And all the Hospitals and Insurance Companies and Doctors will, again, make big profits and refuse service to those most in need if they have pre-conditions.
It will be a sad day for the Average American if Romney takes the Country back to the eras of the 2 Bush Presidents.He said he wanted to go back to moving the country forward but his Policies will take them back alright---back to old Republican ways.

The Marines posted on their web site that every Marine is trained in bayonet use.
A spokesman from Ontario Knife Company, said in an emailed statement.
“The military deploys our products for a wide range of combat and field operations, these include but are not limited to breaching devices, rescue tools and combat weapons."
Dan Riker, the owner of Bayonet Inc., a military surplus store that sells bayonets, described the president's comment as "ignorant."
Bayonets "are still distributed to the military all the time," Riker told TMZ. "He should get educated on it."

Now for a comment on Conservative economic policy. When I was a boy, the adage was that if the head is doing well, then the tail will wag. In other words, if our corporations and businesses are doing well, then the workers will benefit. There was a truth to this idea.
This is no longer the case. There is no longer a national "connect" and so, for example, if British Petroleum is doing well, then there is no guarantee that the U.K. are in any way benefiting. The multi-national nature of corporations means that any kind of social conscience is gone.
Despite what they say, large businesses and corporations have no sense of belonging and thus the tail is totally separated from the head. If the head can make more in China and Korea, it will.
Romney (and for that matter Obama) can say what they want about business and encouragement, but it will make no difference. Any breaks to business will not guarantee any breaks to the American people and any cuts to Obamacare will further disenfranchise the poor.

In my opinion the average american will be far better off with Obama in the next 4 years than they will be with Romney as President. But with Romney the Rich will get richer and the poor will get poorer. He has always favoured the Rich.
Also, by the way, I clearly heard Romney say he will create 14 Million new jobs with him as President---He has not laid out any specific plan to do that except to lower the Business Taxes to promote business to create jobs but he cannot guarantee that many businesses will remain in the U.S.A. even with lower taxes.
Lower taxes brings in less Revenue----That will really lower the deficit won't it---so in order to bring in more taxes that he will not get from his business partners he will have to tax the middle class to increase the Revenues. Real smart move eh you right leaning posters ?

Right Wing---You often like to quote from Wikipedia--Well, even Wikipedia says that Romney had just about as many failures as successes in his lifetime.
But, I guess, that he got more money from his successes than what he lost with his failures.
Obama is not perfect but neither is Romney.
See, I can see both sides.
What counts the most is whether Obama or Romney will improve life for 99% of Americans and, again in my opinion, Romney's policies will mostly help the 1% of the Americans who are already rich.

Explain how you get rich?
Success is somehow something to be frownwed upon?
What is the American dream again?
To be succesful or just run of the mill?
Okay lefties ...explain! If you can.

Wow...Brian Hayes on a trip to the vatican...one of the benefits of electing a member of the ruling party.

Right Winger---Yes Obama said that he would close Guatanamo Bay Prison within a year---He found that to be harder than he thought but I do believe that there are very few prisoners left there now !
What makes you think that Romney will keep all his promises, that he is making now, after he becomes President ?
Romney said that he approves of Water Boarding as a means of gathering info. from prisoners and he will probably keep gitmo open to do that.

Retreaded...in defense of Mr. Hayes...he just does what he is told.
He's polite, well groomed and photographs well. Unlike the guy he replaced who always looked like he got dressed in a phone booth in the rain.
I take great comfort in knowing that my tax bill for this year paid for Bryan's wonderful opportunity to applaud the elevation of a Mohawk maiden to saint status.
What's-his-name the lefty-pinko Irish immigrant will just have to go back to the Soup Kitchen with all those other threats to unfettered capitalism and make baloney sandwiches.
I am going to sleep better knowing that my money went to The Big Picture.
God bless Hayes,God bless St. Katarina, God bless all God fearing people in the true north strong and free.
