I think a lot of these people confuse his beliefs with the Democratic party's.

I'll accept (but disagree with) one who says that the stimulus (which was successful) should have been replaced by trickle-down economics (which has never actually worked, and would take years anyway).

I'll accept (but disagree with) one who says that the healtcare reform pay-in mandate (which actually eliminates decades of freeloading that repubs have complained about) should be replaced with some other form of cost control (as of yet unspecified by repubs).

But I can't accept your categorization of Obama without some justification. And I'm well aware that you don't give a rat's ass what I think, but I'm merely stating that I don't believe the justification has been put out there, should you decide to enlighten us. Because right now, it sounds an awful lot like Sarah Palin's "real Americans" mumbo-jumbo.


Obamacare will put many firms out of business, especially small business. This is a fact, nothing to argue about.

Mandating companies to offer a certain compensation of benefits to employees is not moderate.

Because the facts as we are presented aren't facts anyway!
You think by posting some bar graphs and some, what appears to be knowledge about a subject that has purely been misconstrued every way you look at it, we are supposed to be persuaded by you?
Come on! You dont know anymore about this political BS than they want you to know, which is no more than the next guy!

You're right! It was pioneered by none other than your eventual conservative republican nominee. Funny how that works.

Well, for a bunch of people who have no real facts, we sure argue a lot!

I'm not trying to persuade anyone, just expressing my point of view. I must admit, you've come up with a novel way to slam the opposition - convincing me that "nothing's real". I contend that it's perfectly valid to hold an opinion on these issues.

what do you mean "your"? no conservative wants Romney to win, the only ones who want Romney are rhinos and apparently the mainstream media.

and either way, it still doesn't address the fact that it will put many firms out of business. Especially firms with low profit margins and many employees....

Absolutely... and opinions vary greatly.
I see no need to slam anyone, just merely stating what I think, just as you have.

Repeal Obamacare and watch unemployment start dropping immediately. Every single Republican (save for lame brains like Susan Collins, Olympia Snowe et al) wants it repealed. Guess what? More workers in the workplace = higher taxes collected i.e. raised revenues. Pretty simple concept really.

If you would have said someone like Marco Rubio or Bob McDonnell I would have at least given you some credit.

Typical liberal response....bitch about something but don't have a solution. I'll ask you again...who do you feel would be the best person to lead this Country?

I'm not the one complaining Junior, you are. I'll gladly take Mitt Romney or Newt Gingrich over the imbecile in there right now.
