Mitt Romney is just what America needs! Hide your money in Bermuda, Caymans and Switzerland; invest in China’s Oil Industry; hide you Tax Returns from the American people; change your positions as often as it takes in order to win; speak disparagingly about your fellow Americans as “free-loaders; deny what you have said if it is working against you [lie]; and don’t forget, form 137 entities in Bermuda to avoid paying Taxes in America and yes, blame the other guy for everything that ails America!

 

Polls prove that the first presidential debate upended the race.

Immediately after the debate, coverage focused on polls that moved in Romney’s direction. After all, a Gallup survey showed that 72 percent of debate watcherssaid Romney did a better job, the most lopsided debate readout Gallup has ever recorded.

But there is little evidence that the debate decisively moved the needle in key swing states. In six state surveys released Thursday by two well-regarded polling partnerships — NBC-Wall Street Journal-Marist and CBS-New York Times-Quinnipiac — there were virtually no shifts for either candidate compared with pre-debate polls.

Nationally, the debate effect may have quickly faded. In Washington Post-ABC News polling after last week’s face-off, voters had more positive reactions to Romney on the first two nights after the debate than on the next two. In Gallup tracking, the post-debate tally is nearly identical to what it was in the preceding days. And one new Florida poll shows momentum for Romney but another doesn’t.

The presidential race has long been characterized as tightly competitive and voters as overwhelmingly locked-in. The first debate seems to have done little to alter these basic, well-documented story lines.

The best polls are those that correctly predict an election’s outcome.

Getting elections “right” is a necessary but insufficient reason to put great stock in polls. Some surveys could be well-modeled — adjusted to previous elections or to hunches, including, some surmise, tweaks to agree with other polls. (Few pollsters relish being an outlier.)

Both the Republican-leaning Rasmussen Reports and the Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling have track records that some view favorably, but both use automated phone calls with recorded voices to collect data (“Press 1 for Obama, 2 for Romney,” etc.), revealing a basic flaw: It’s against federal law to have computers dial cellphones, so most “robopolls” ignore about 30 percent of U.S. adults.

At a minimum, excluding cellphones means these polls are increasingly reliant on statistical weighting. They might make up for a lack of young people, for instance, by counting several times the answers from the few younger respondents. Peter Miller, a recent president of the American Association for Public Opinion Research, points out the root problem with weighting: “The more you rely on weights, the more you risk being wrong for reasons you don’t understand.”

It is always better to look at polls’ methodology, not just their results. What’s more, the “horse race” findings are often among the least important parts of a good poll. What issues motivate voters? And who is motivated to vote? These are more crucial to understanding an election than whether a candidate is up two, three or six percentage points.

Polls are skewed if they don’t interview equal numbers of Democrats and Republicans.

Political junkies quickly scan each poll release to see the “party ID split” — the proportions of self-identified Democrats, Republicans and independents in the sample. It makes sense: With party loyalty as strong as it is, the numbers of Democratic and Republican respondents in a survey make a huge difference. But to think, as many do, that there should be equal numbers from each party is off-base, particularly when looking at polls meant to assess the general population’s views.

Though voters seem split down the middle, there have generally been more Democrats than Republicans in the country since pollsters started tracking partisan allegiances after World War II. There is often more parity in election tallies, as Republicans tend to be more reliable voters than Democrats, but that also depends on the year.

Artificially evening out a poll’s partisan balance or arbitrarily setting it to match someone’s guess at turnout on Election Day may make one side a bit happier — but at the expense of distorting the current state of play.

News outlets are biased in presenting polls favorable toward President Obama.

Media-bashing is at a peak among conservatives, and some on the right routinely dismiss any poll showing Obama ahead of Romney. (And some on the left reflexively scorn polls in which Romney leads.) Before recent surveys turned in Romney’s direction, one conservative blogger went so far as to set up UnskewedPolls.com, a site offering “adjusted” public polls, tilted to favor Romney by manipulating the samples to be more Republican.

In truth, news organizations have only one bias — toward news.

Nothing demonstrates this better than the recent coverage of the Pew Research Center’s post debate-national poll, which showed big, across-the-board movements from Obama toward Romney. The Washington Post splashed the poll on its front page, and the survey provided days of fodder for cable news, illustrating that the media gravitate toward a competitive race, big shifts and conflict much more than one political party or the other.

Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, Karl Rove, The Koch Brothers; do you think that they are on your side?

FACT NOT HYPERBOLE

 

 

If our memory is so short to forget the suffering former President George W. Bush and his party left us in, literally hanging over the Financial Cliff and can’t see that there isn’t one penny worth of difference between Mitt Romney and George W. Bush, then vote for Romney and watch him actually throw America off the cliff.

 

Fact, not hyperbole; Mitt Romney formed 137 (Shell) Companies in the Caymans for the sole purpose of avoiding taxes in order to enrich his own pocket. If Mr. Romney wanted to just chase money then there wouldn’t be a problem at all, but he wants to be President of the United States, a man who has bank accounts in Bermuda, Switzerland, made a major investment in China’s Oil Industry and who wouldn’t release more than two years of tax returns; a man who have been telling the American people I would give everyone a 20% tax reduction across the board that totals five trillion dollars; add two trillion dollars to the defense budget and keep Bush’s tax cut of one trillion dollars and that he would still balance the budget, how stupid are the people to believe such phantasmagoric rationales and internecine policies?

 

 

The uninformed Voters

 

 

Just imagine how shallow we have become in America! Obama had a lack-luster debate; Romney on the other hand lied and disavowed everything he stood for and the majority of Americans gave Romney the victory in the debate!

 

I wonder if America sees how unequivocally stupid we are viewed, especially when we continually try to tell the rest of the world about Democracy, Honesty, and in addition, criticize other world Leaders for duplicity!

 

What an exceptional example we are providing to our children – Lying is a virtue; believing in nothing and chasing money will help build their character. When you grow up hide your money in Bermuda, The Caymans and Switzerland, Invest in China, Vote to give more to the wealthy and your country would be better from the trickled down economics. O yes! We are doing a fine job. We ought to be sincerely ASHAMED!

 

The reason why the Polls are so extreme is not because of the Pollsters, but solely because the American people, not all but many, have no in-depth knowledge of how just how corrupt Politicians are, especially the Republicans.

 

Do you want this man, Mitt Romney to be your President?

Founder of Bain Capital, Mitt Romney though Headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts, USA, Bain/Romney and its credit affiliates, Sankaty Advisors, have set up at least One Hundred and Thirty Seven [137] entities in the Caymans, using local Attorneys and others who provide an Island address for paperwork purposes.

 

Interviews and reviews of thousands of pages of financial documents with Tax Experts found that Mr. Romney may have reduced his personal tax bills, due to the Off-Shore arrangements they implemented. Bain tax-avoidance strategies have enhanced Mr. Romney’s income. In addition, some Off-Shore Entities enabled Bain-Owned Companies to sidestep certain taxes thus increasing returns for Mr. Romney.

 

A low estimate of Mitt Romney’s wealth is $250,000,000.00 remain hidden, because Mr. Romney has released only the last two years of his tax returns. Though Mr. Romney left Bain Capital, for the fifteen years he ran Bain, Romney has continued to share in the Profits of Bain due to the terms of his retirement agreement.

 

There isn’t anything wrong with being Rich if your only interest is Business Profiteering, however, there is plenty wrong when you want to be President of the United States and refuse to disclose to the American People, sufficient information in order for them to make an informed decision as it pertains to voting for you.

 

No previous President of the United States have been so secretive about financial matters and in addition; having accounts in Bermuda; 137 Companies in the Caymans for the sole purpose of avoiding taxes; Swiss Bank Account and investing in China’s Oil Industry, rather than in The United States of America!

 

Financial Policies implemented by a Rich man who sees Corporations as People and his single highest objective is, to increase his wealth and that of his Rich friends, advocating trickled down economics, that have been detrimental to the Middle-Class; Our Children; Veterans; The Elderly and the Poor.

 

Do you really think Mitt Romney’s aspiration to be President is some patriotic conviction to assist America’s 98%, or, is it for self-indulgence to extrapolate from you what little you may have left, from George W. Bush’s Policies that decimated you and your family?

 

Hence, I repeat my question: “Do you want this man, Mitt Romney, to be your President?

The Republican brain drain!

By Richard Cohen, Published: September 24 Washington Post

In 1980 Ronald Reagan won the Republican nomination. He beat a future president, George H.W. Bush; two future Senate majority leaders, Howard Baker and Bob Dole; and two lesser-known congressmen. This year Mitt Romney won the GOP nomination. He beat a radio host, a disgraced former House speaker, a defeated Senate candidate, a former appointee of the Obama administration, a tongue-tied Texas governor, a prevaricating religious zealot who happens to serve in the House of Representatives and a cranky libertarian doctor. Where did all the talent go?

Until the Republican Party can answer this question, it makes no sense to continue to carp about Mitt Romney and the startlingly incompetent presidential campaign he’s running. His faults as a politician are manifest. He is robotic, unknowable (his own wife asserted at the national convention that “he made me laugh” and then failed to cite a single humorous moment), ideologically incoherent and severely out of touch with the average American. He is his party’s nominee because, like the one-eyed man in the valley of the blind, he is just the best of the worst.

Since Republicans are so focused on the individual and not on the system that produced him, they miss the real problem. The system in this case is the series of incredibly damaging primaries and caucuses that, in the crucial early stages, produce a candidate who could sweep Bavaria. The Iowa caucuses alone take the GOP so far to the right that it all but dooms the winner. Romney had to vow to stop thinking. He had to virtually declare himself anti-Hispanic (criticizing Texas for providing tuition discounts to the college-age children of illegal immigrants). While he has now moderated his approach, it is a bit late. Hispanic is not Spanish for Stupid.

Across the board, Romney pandered to the right. He did so on guns, abortion and even Iran. A GOP candidate has to oppose same-sex marriage, deny global warming and insist — against all evidence — that local control of education is the best. The only way around these positions is to skip the Iowa caucuses entirely. It is no place for a moderate. It is, really, no place for a thinking person. It’s just preposterous that Iowa — 30th in population among the states — gets to be the gatekeeper for the Republican Party and, in a sense, the entire nation.

The list of Republicans who looked at Iowa’s daunting demographics and did not run is more distinguished than those who did. At one time or another, Michele Bachmann and Herman Cain (who was forced to drop out) were front-runners. Can you think of any two people less qualified for the presidency? How about Ron Paul, another front-runner, or Mad Newt Gingrich or Rick Perry, the cement-mouthed governor who would eliminate three Cabinet offices, if only he couldremember them? How about Rick Santorum, a fun guy, who actually beat Romney in Iowa, or Jon Huntsman, a decent man with shallow political experience — and, it seemed, aptitude?

None of these candidates were remotely qualified for the highest office in the land. Arguably, Romney was the exception — and that’s the whole point. He won just by showing up. He beat a bunch of nobodies. This is how the GOP wound up with such a weak candidate, one who espouses extreme positions he does not for a moment believe.

Open the window and listen. You will hear the moans and groans of Republican officials and their trained pundits. But where were these people when their field of oddballs was being assembled? Why were they so silent when Hispanics and women were being told to shove it and the long-dead Darwin was being debated? More to the point, maybe, how come they put up with a primary and caucus system — Iowa first, New Hampshire second — that seemingly was designed by a sly Democrat? The answer is that they do not have the courage nor the intellectual integrity to stand up to the know-nothing (dominant) wing of the Republican Party. They have designed a system where, politically speaking, the lowest common denominator wins. We are all the poorer for it.

Contrast the candidates of yore with the collection that took the field this year. The Republican Party has had a brain drain so that now its highest intellectual achievement is — like an infant in the Terrible 2s— simply to say no to everything, especially taxes. To paraphrase Marx, rise up, GOP moderates. You have nothing to lose . . . but losing.

Mitt Romney’s 47% speech suggests that Romney doesn’t know much about the culture of America!

It suggests that Romney doesn’t know much about the culture of America. Yes, the entitlement state has expanded, but America remains one of the hardest-working nations on earth.

 

 

Mitt Romney and his Republican base can try to “spin” his 47% speech as much as they can, but, indeed, Romney called almost half of America

 

Moochers!

Money is to Mitt Romney what Carcasses are to Vultures!

Malleable Mitt Romney’s statement on Meet the Press that he opposed the raising of the debt ceiling in 2011 without a cut, cap, and balance provision, is one of Romney’s more egregious false declarations and it is simply not true.

 

In July of 2011 when most of the Republican Leaders were weighing in on the debt ceiling, Romney was in his “Mitt’s Keep Silent Protection Program.” However, when it became abundantly clear that John Boehner would have to cave due to the recalcitrant Republican Congress Boehner was managing, on August 01, 2011, Mitt Romney issued a statement praising John Boehner for working out a deal that avoided The United States of America from defaulting on its debts.

 

Romney’s deplorable and willful paroxysm is just another reason why the American Voters in November 2012, had better revisit all of Romney’s positions that changed over time – as a means to an end. His so-called plan that he calls a budget for which he states; he would increase military spending by 2-trillion dollars; authorize another 5-trillion tax cut [that would benefit Romney and those at the very top 2%] and that he would avoid any immediate changes to Medicare and Social Security while balancing the budget at the same time without any specificity, proves that Mitt Romney is a Human-Vulture on the Middle-Class, the Elderly, the Poor and America’s Children.

 

Mitt Romney’s lame excuses of “not” releasing any more tax returns other than his 2010 returns, is self evident as to this Human-Vulture capriciousness that insults the  intelligence of the American people. If the American people cannot see that any concerns for 98% of the hard-working Americans by Mitt Romney is a big fat ZERO, and capitulate to the utter nonsense by this Vulture and propel him into office, when trouble comes, they would have no one to blame but themselves.

 

At a CNN debate in June, Mitt Romney insisted that President Obama had made the economy worse. Romney said; “What this President has done has slowed the economy. He didn’t create the recession, but he made it worse and longer.”

 

Then later in the month of June at a campaign stop in Allentown, Pennsylvania, Vulture Romney contradicted himself when he said; “I didn’t say that things were worse. What I said was, the economy hasn’t turned around”
