Why do voters care about vision? The great baseball player Yogi Berra used to say: "If you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there." Voters want leaders who know where they are taking us in the same way that you want a pilot who knows

Funny. Did no one notice Biden's speech where he spoke in a fake southern accent and black dialect to blacks and had the nerve to say that Romney would put them back into slavery????

Biden's only problem is he often misspeaks! Romney problems are many!!!!! Now that the whole women's issue which was brought to light bo Todd Akins, this party is totally toast! Romney would put blacks back into slavery - look at the voter suppression aimed squrely at blacks being perpetrated in several states, and, does Romney condem this? Hell no! What is not being said here is much worse that a Bidgen gaffe! Back in chains would be the least of the worries the black people would face under Romney/Ryan! Along with the middle class, seniors, gays, minorities, veterans, etc. - all back in chains under Romney! Slaves to work to support the wealthy!

As far as I can tell, the only "vision" Romney has is one where he becomes President. Beyond that, he seems to have no new or useful ideas.

Romney would not only put blacks back to slavery he would put women back to using coat hangers, back ally abortionists and death. Also he would have women back under the glass ceiling with less pay then they are making now. But make no mistake he will have his big fat corporate and filthy rich buddy's making more money on the backs of the poor and middle class because he truly believes that it will trickle down on the rest of us When in actuality it's more like being pissed on.

I did see that John.G and I couldn't believe he said such a thing. I have to be honest though, It seems both sides are saying things they wish they could take back? Im just not sure who to believe right now???

The GOP vision of Hell on Earth isn't working for me.

Romney doesn't just have "vision." He has "visions." And they change daily based upon his audience, what his opponents are saying, and any embarrassing thing a fellow Republican might have said --if he thinks it will bring down his poll numbers. His "visions" are whatever will get him elected. Someone needs to tell him that the words "vision" and "lie" are not synonymous.

The only vision he has is turning the country into the elitist utopia he and his other conservative comrades dream about.

Some of the respondents have me a bit confused with all these attacks. Here's a to the point quote on where we stand with Obama's agenda:

Paradoxical Quote of The Day From Ben Stein:

"Fathom the hypocrisy of a government that requires every citizen to prove they are insured...
but not everyone must prove they are a citizen."

Now add this,
"Many of those who refuse, or are unable, to prove they are citizens will receive free insurance paid for by those who are forced to buy insurance because they are citizens."


And this is why informed citizens canít, in their right mind, vote him for another term!

Romney must face his ultimate opponent in November: himself.

Romney fails...except when it comes to increasing wealth of the wealthy and stopping regulation or environmental controls....

The Big Picture and Grand Prize:

Land of the Free OR Divided States of AmeriKa.

All else will fall away if 4 more are put in place. The would-be King will rule with Executive Privilege, screw Congress, screw you. By his own mouth he can't help it ... "it's in the genes".

You're free to choose, at least till November.
