    Well clearly at least 47% would not be better off. He flat out admitted that he didn't care about that percentage of Americans. Looking at how Romney supported GW Bush it is clear that he would have pursued similar policies since he approved of virtually everything that Bush did while in office. That being the case we would probably be at war in Syria and Iran by now and the economy would be well on the way to another recession. Therefore no - we would not be better off.

    You know good and well he didn't mean that the way you say. He meant he understood you wouldn't vote for him under any circumstances. And it was true and you know it.

    @NTBFW Going full hypothetical - I would have voted for Romney if he had run as a moderate and Jesse Jackson Jr had been his opponent. As to Romney's meaning - you'd have to ask him. He made it pretty clear how he felt about the lowest income 47% of Americans.

    @PNWest I just heard him say it and stop being obtuse. He cares a lot more about everyone than Obama cares about me.

    Haven't seen you open your check book to volunteer to take care of the 47% you are championing the fight for...

    I doubt if he would have refused to work with congress like Obama has done so many times. I think what hurts Obama more than his arrogant stupidity is his lack of business savy. What this nation needed was a man who knows business, and it is clear that Obama doesn't have a clue. In four years we are way further in debt, and the cost of living is higher with incomes and jobs lower. I doubt if Romney would have shoved a health policy down our throats and threatened the second amendment. He vowed to make China obey the rules and Obama.....well we know how he treats China. Also Romney would not be dumping billions of dollars into Muslim countries and giving our enemies F-16s and Abrams tanks. I could go on and on, but this poll clearly shows that the Obama fan base is diminishing every time he opens his mouth!

    "It kills me not to be there, not to be in the White House doing what needs to be done," he told Fox News Sunday."

    Don't worry Mr Romney, it's killing the America as well that you're not in the White House where you belong. It's just really sad that the partisan and low information Obama sheep would rather cut off their nose to spite their face, instaed of doing the right thing for out nation. "A nation of children"...

    I knew this would happen. I knew it. As soon as the country realized what a stupid and irreversible mistake they made, and how Barack was going to do nothing but continue to run the country into the ground for another 4 years, they'd wish Mitt was there. Too damn late. You got what you asked for, and you're going to have to deal with it.

    Yep. I'm betting that if a poll were taken right now amongst the low information voters that voted for Obama, the majority portion would vote toward having buyer's remorse. Sad indeed...

    He is right about one thing. We wouldn't be in sequester right now. And we wouldn't be worried about gun control.

    @Food4thoughts it wouldn't matter. The GOP would never back it. Even Bill Clinton told Obama is a losing idea.

    Romney is just a moderate who would not have led this nation in the direction it needs to go. What he would have done is slow down the speed in which obama is pushing this nation off the cliff. Romney would have simply managed the decline of America. However, he would have been a placeholder until we got a real conservative elected.

    With the retention of obama, we will not be able to slow down America's decline and things will be much harder for the American people, especially obama's most ardent supporters. Only a fool would think that Romney would have been a much, much better president. Nonetheless, Romney still wasn't quite what America needed. Had Romney been a true conservative, millions of conservative voters would not have sat out the last election and we'd have a proud patriotic president in office now.

    Totally better, heck, I could do a better job than Obama. He's clearly just coasting for the next 2 years in hopes that he gets a democrat house and senate to do his will. He doesn't want his name connected with anything and wants to bring the republicans to their knees, he's at war with half the country, the half he hates, me included. I am a conservative and he hates me and all I stand for. Why else did he refuse, again, the accept flexibility in apportioning the decrease in the increase for discretionary spending? He either wants the decrease in the increase to really hurt Americans as bad as possible to make political points or he doesn't want the be the one deciding what program gets less money. Either way, he's not leading, he's not even acting like any president we have ever had before.

    Coasting was Romney's publicly stated plan. Everything was going to miraculously fix itself by benefit of his being elected. His proposed budget growth for the next four years was the same projected growth that was predicted to occur under the current status quo. The house still makes the budget. The house still is not doing it's job. The house is still answerable for this. It's easier to make it simple and blame obama because you're appealing to simple people who want simple answers because they have simple minds.

    @frigginhell LOL - You were not paying attention to what Romney was saying, you were listening to the lies of the DNC talking heads and the president. OK, now go look up budget procedure on the internet, you will see that STEP #1 is for the PRESIDENT to present a budget to congress:

    "The President's budget request:
    Congressional consideration of the federal budget begins once the President of the United States submits a budget request, which is formulated over a period of months with the assistance of the Office of Management and Budget, the largest office within the Executive Office of the President. The budget request includes funding requests for all federal executive departments and independent agencies.

    The President submits the budget request each year to Congress for the following fiscal year, as required by the Budget and Accounting Act of 1921. Current law (31 U.S.C. 1105(a))[4] requires the President to submit a budget no earlier than the first Monday in January, and no later than the first Monday in February. Typically, Presidents submit budgets on the first Monday in February."

    So, shall we revisit just who has the simple mind and simple answer? Hmmm. Seems to be the lefts low information voters constant repetition of "The house makes the budget" is both a simple answer and and only one part of the whole. Know this, until the president does his job, there is no budget for the Senate to pass on to the House for the House to approve. Got it?

    @Tralee “My own view is,” he declared,“if we win on November 6, there will be a great deal of optimism about the future of this country. We’ll see capital come back, and we’ll see — without actually doing anything — we’ll actually get a boost in the economy.”
    What was his plan? Where was he going to make cuts? Where was he going to add revenue? What specifics did he ever offer? Who's the revisionist in this conversation?
  • #128

    @frigginhell That's it? One snippet of a speech and that's what you base your entire view on? Well, at least that gives us the reason for your statement. Most of us actually paid attention for the whole campaign, you know the tax cuts for all (via tax reform so don't worry the hated rich were still going to pay the lions share of taxes paid), building the pipeline (jobs, economy, gas UNDER $4 a gallon, growth, etc.) and of course he didn't hate half the country, wouldn't be at war with half of the country and would actually LEAD in a crisis, would actually work with BOTH sides, not just gloat that "I won". See, you really missed a whole lot of what he would have done and done much differently than Obama. But then, you may like having a GDP of only 1.4% or so.

    @Tralee hafl the country? yeah, only 47%, right? he had no policy. he had no plan. his words out of his mouth showed his ideas to all. you don't have to spin anything. the man was a walking gaffe.

    What a classy and honorable woman Ann Romney is. She would have made a great first lady. Too bad we're stuck with what we have.

    "Better" is a relative term. If the congress and senate were in the same divisions as they currently are, the hold-up in budget approval would move to the senate level.

    I doubt that there would be much difference at all.

    (The racists on both sides will now bring up the ridiculous concept of skin pigment.)

    I don't care if he's green with pink polka dots, that is immaterial. If Obama would just present a budget and the senate would either pass it or amend it as is their job and pass it on to the house, a budget could be worked out. We've had divided government before and this administration is the only one to not put forth a budget for 4 years, ever. There is no hold up of budget approval since there has not been a budget presented for approval.

    @Tralee Tell that to the republican minority in the Senate that keeps using the filibuster to block any budgets they don't like as well as Everything else that the President and/or Demcratic-Majority of the Senate has tried to do.

    @Sonny LOL - Sonny, Sonny, Sonny, there hasn't been a budget passed by the Senate since Obama took office, he couldn't even get the democrat controlled senate to pass his budget, do repeat the lie that republicans are holding anything up, Obama can't even get dems. to vote for his budget. Give me a break, I really am so tired of this same old propaganda that the DNC is putting out. It's a lie, look up the facts for yourself, see just who voted against Obama's budget and see for yourself that the Senate has not even tweaked Obama's budget and sent it on to the house to start negotiations on a budget. It's a lie, stop repeating it.

    @Tralee Tra-Tra-Tra....Like I said...you need to take your complaint to the republican obstructionist minority party in the Senate...They are the one's using the filibuster on every budget and bill they don't like. The budget can't be "tweaked" and sent on to the House, until it is first passed in the Senate (under that scenario)---And when the obstructionist minority republican party in the Senate either filibusters or threatens to filibuster---they are preventing that process from going forward. You can be "tired of this" all you want...But until or unless the republicans stop being obstructionist---nothing will ever get done.

    We have no idea what a Mitt Romney presidency would have looked like and speculation will get us nowhere. However it seems to me we are more divided as a country now that at any time during my life. I think the partisanship being displayed by both parties is to blame and the media has turned into the enemy of democracy, rabibly pursuing any candidate's past along with members of their family to try and find something to taint them in the public eye. And we wonder why our goverment functions the way it does, good people do not want to run for office, only scondrels who do not mind the soap opera atmosphere created by the media.

    I still think despite of his personal flaws that I hated, Herman Cain would have been a good president. It was painful how all those bad things he did only popped up once he became a man of bigger importance, and politically vulnerable. How hilarious that all those victimized women, chose THAT moment to suddenly grow a pair.

    Sadly, this is another "I told you so" moment that the low information Obama voters are just now realizing. Learn the facts folks, we need real leadership right now in this country. If you want razzle dazzle, go see a Harlem Globe Trotters show.

    Oh Romney would do a better job at getting things done. Protecting special interests, including his own, protecting rich peoples' tax rates, like his own, with a republican majority in the house, things would look great for him. They would pass record amounts of legislation. Specifically aimed at keeping the rich rich, and the poor poor.
    But what would it do for our country to have him elected? Short term-good. Long-term bad. Its about time we the people woke up to the reality that one of the parties is representing the wealthy class of our country and its time we take advantage of the fact they are going to destroy millions of jobs. People are going to get angry this time (its not our first furlough season but its the first time workers won't get compensated). There's going to be hell to pay.
