forget the people who were/weren't going to vote for him. he basically said he doesn't care about anyone who needs government assistance. and this may be a shocker to some, but NOT everyone on welfare is a drug-using, system abusing bum.

as opposed to republicans who are notorious for giving large companies little regulation? or do we need to revisit 2008?
John K Massaro September 18, 2012 at 05:28 PM
EXACTLY, John. What about every single disabled veteran who relies on the government to make ends meet after fighting for this country & losing his/her ability to "take responsibility for their own lives"? What about every single person who's on Social Security, who's done their time in the workforce & was looking forward to spending the twilight of their lives in financial comfort? What about those who were productive working members of society BEFORE Romney & others like him outsourced their jobs overseas? What about all the people currently on unemployment because of Wall Street bankers, an auto industry that didn't remain competitive & government economic policies leaning towards the upper-class? Basically, "We screwed you, we knocked you down, it's your problem to get yourself back on your feet"? I'm sorry, but that's not the guy I want leading my country.

Waaaaaa, and what about...and what about....and what about...and what about...what about who!? You come into this world naked and with nothing but a chance like it or lump it you can do whatever you want. But the same people who state that we need nationalized healthcare because it is not right that freeloaders cost you and I $$ when they go to the hospital are the same people that are now having a conniption because we have now upped the ante and discussed what this election is really about. Be afraid. Be very afraid. The wave of 2010 is about to flood the fruited plains.

hahahaha, if you don't agree with John K. Massaro and agree that ''Romney basically just lost the election" you're missing the point. You must be getting upset today as everyone is missing the point you, Brian Williams and Jimmy Carter's grandson thought was so breathless. too predictable.
