    Mr. Ramirez is a good voice for his candidate. It would take an educated and informed electorate(Eisenhower’s words) to recall the impediments placed in front of this administration as it tried to reach stated goals. The saddest impediment came from Obama’s own party as they used arrogance and bullying instead of cooperation and bipartisanship in the interactions with the Republicans. However, the Norquist conservatives and a right of right social agenda introduced in 2010 made a lie of the Republicans promise they would focus on jobs and deadlocked the legislature more than ever. I hear Reid is promising to treat Romney the same way McConnall treated Obama. This is not the way the most powerful nation in the world should be run. This is not how a great people should let themselves be led. The President can only do so much if Congress is more eager to enrich themselves than to serve their nation.Respectfully,C.

    At least the cartoonist admits to being biased.

    Not a cartoon but a dissertation. A deceptive and flaccid one.

    Who’d want to talk to Bibi—his generals told him to go soak his head in ’10 when he wanted to attack Iran. Much better to carry your message to the American public on the Letterman Show than meet with that loser.

    This is also cute: The politicization by the Republican Party of the tragic attack on the US consulate in Benghazi has been a security disaster for the United States. A document dump by Congressman Darrell Issa outed the identities of Libyans working with the US."

    No need to read all of them… the deficit in Massachusetts is a non-issue, the constitution requires a balanced budget. And what about the 844 vetoes, mostly overridden? Romney wasn’t governing in Massachusetts, he was being a really tiny speed bump.

    Michael, no matter how you slice it, Romney is a rich guy who will only help other wealthy people. Obama is for 99% — and if those people vote, then Romney is trashed.

    Mitt’s rescue of the Olympics in Salt Lake, came at a $1.3 Billion price tag for the U.S. taxpayer.……………..McCain, 2000: "This figure [$1.3 billion] is breathtaking. The American taxpayer is being shaken down to the tune of nearly a billion-and-a-half dollars for Salt Lake City to host the Winter Olympics.

    … No one would dispute that the federal government should provide whatever support necessary to ensure that the Games are safe for everyone. However, the American taxpayer should not be burdened with building up the basic infrastructure necessary to a city to be able to pull off hosting the Olympic Games."…………………….

    while governor of Massachusetts… Romney vetoed an astounding 844 bills (do the math: that one veto every 1.7 days) passed by the mostly Democratic Massachusetts state legislature, over 700 of which had to be overridden just to pass. And not just by Democrats. Governor Romney’s 2006 veto of an increase in the minimum wage was overturned unanimously by both Republicans and Democrats alike. So it is beyond belief in these closing days that Governor Romney is running TV ads and giving stump speeches touting his ability to “work across the aisle” while governor of a state with an “85% Democrat legislature.”……………………..http://crooksandliars.com/mugsy/mitt-800-vetoes-romneys-says-hell-work-democ……………………“Of Romney’s 844 vetoes, 707 were overridden by the legislature, some unanimously. Romney vetoed money for housing the homeless, vetoed a bill honoring a student’s right not to dissect animals, vetoed a raise in the minimum wage. A company on whose board he served was fined 83 million dollars for Medicare fraud. He was accused of tax evasion in preparing Marriott International’s tax forms”.………………….http://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2012/10/10/18723473.php……………………..During the 2008 campaign, he was proud of his vetoes……“Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney has made fiscal policy discipline a staple of his presidential campaign. He has run an ad called “I Like Vetoes” roughly 1,000 times, making it the single most expensive ad so far in the 2008 presidential campaign. In the ad Romney states that he “vetoed hundreds of spending appropriations as governor.” What he neglects to mention is that more than 700 of his vetoes were overturned by the Massachusetts Legislature."……………………….http://www.factcheck.org/elections-2008/dont_veto_the_truth.html………………………

    “…When the Libs are faced with reality they immediately start with name-calling and insults…” If it were possible to shout down others, the liberals would do it. They behave that way everywhere else.

    Skeptic,, umm dude go back to school. When the President entertains at dinner parties, a portion of the bill DOES come out of his own paycheck. Slam Fail bucky.

    As for Ansonia, umm fail also. If you actually look at the tactics of each party. Repubs feed hate and point fingers, they give ideas but no facts or clear direction on how. Also, their stance changes very quickl and cant be counted on. And they also give this false image that everything will be hunky dorky and money grows on trees.

    Libs on the other hand, say we have issues and we need to fix them and we need to work together. When the point their figners they don’t do it in hateful manner they then point out detailes on what to do. Unlike the GOP.. they also know as FACT we are no longer a production economy and admit that we ALL are going to have to get our hands dirty and work hard to get out of our mess that the past few President (namely bush and Clinton) created the mess we are in now.

    Oh one last thing, GOP wants to bring faith into our politics when in our founding documents “Seperation of Chruch in State”.

    OH one last thing.. why would you vote for a person who his past job was to break up companies.. sell them off to foreign investors and cost 1000’s of USA people to lose jobs while he sits in his million dollar home?? OH.. that and treats women as property.

    I almost want Romney to win so I won’t ever need to see another of Ramirez’s crummy lazy Obama caricatures.


    Obama’s almost certain to win. The Republican tears will be GLORIOUS.

    Sorry, all of the ultra conservatives here, including Ramirez, on this site, but candidate Mitt Romney has just conceded that he has lost the election to President Obama. However, those of us moderates, independents and liberals (and yes, some conservatives also) that voted for the president will also try to (at least until attacked by the more ideological ultra conservatives at any rate) be as gracious about winning as candidate Mitt Romney was about losing. He may not have had a losing speech written, but he spoke very well indeed, just as did John McCain in 2008!

    Now, can we at least also make some attempt at civility and start to pull together as Americans should in these difficult times??
