i remember when the conservatives dragged john kerry through the mud over his "flip-flopping"... well when it comes to changing positions, john kerry aint got shit on mitt romney.

remember the swift boat guys who trashed war hero john kerry? if the democrats were not such pu$$ies they would go after mitt for using his cult to dodge the draft 5 times


that said, vote for gary johnson or jill stein

You mean like Soros and Buffett? That's a conservative's meaning of success, right? Being super rich, a really good teacher or high school coach that makes a comfortable living while being a great influence on kids is a failure because they don't own a yatch, huh

Success is not only measured as to how much money you own, Paris Hilton can buy yer ass many times over but she is a vapid human being.

its funny to me how much of a big deal the right wing are spinning Romney beating Obama in the first debate, Republicans have the biggest spin machine that amplifies everything that goes their way and distorts anything and everything that doesn't. its so true too between their voters and their media pundits.

anyways if Obama doesn't crush Romney in the next debate and hit him with everything he didn't but could have in the first, he deserves to lose. Especially with Romney now trying to take back the 47% comment altho only an idiot would actually believe he didn't mean it. i think he thinks he can win over some of them now but obviously the way he truly feels came out in the secret recordings.

f'n Democrats have always tried to be above the fray, too mature with less dirty politics and thats why they got wrecked during the Bush years by Rove's dirty ass. i swear thats why Obama looked so feeble out there thinking he could get by just explaining his policies, sticking to the issues, without attacking. drives me crazy how meek and poohsified Democrats are by and large and i had thought they learned their lesson since they were getting dirtier since then.

Seriously Democrats, why do you support a guy who didn't do any of the things he promised to do 4 years ago? He fooled you once, shame on him. He's about to fool you twice.

No president has ever run on a platform of reality. People are too stupid to vote for someone being realistic about what difference a president can make if the rest of government doesnt fall in line...and even if they do...the major changes take years if not decades to be felt in full.

Presidents talk in flowery simple terms designed to get idiots to vote for them. Both sides need the idiot vote to win.

Whoever gets the most uninformed idiots to vote wins. Asking a president to get everything they ran on done is just not looking at how this works.

You listen to these guys talk you would think poor people would stop existing in their 4 years and gas companies would pay you to take it off their hands.

Its all BS to appeal to people who wont think it out. And it works.

Yep.

Maybe there should be a written test you have to pass to be allowed to vote.

Candidates who get real and tell people what they don't to hear get punked by those who BS their way to the WH, Carter got too real and got stomped, Dukakis wouldn't guarantee he wouldn't raise taxes while HW Bush said "read my lips, no new taxes" and won the presidency then raised taxes.

Are you usually more conservative or liberal when it comes to your viewpoints? Who are you voting for?

You act as if propaganda is only coming from one side. You're just as much of an idiot as the people that you criticize, if not more.
