Is there any doubt a Romney administration would favor the rich and increase the income gap in our country? Mitt is a pariah in Mormon Clothing and will stop at nothing to expand an empire of greed for the rich in this country by expanding tax cuts for the 1% of the wealthiest Americans. He’s out to gut the Middle Class for every red cent he can get. Will his sacred Mormon underwear grant him the protection and money to buy this election? See for yourself as Mitt dons his tighty-whities sent down from the Good Lord Himself at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2012/05/mitt-romneys-magic-mormon-underwear.html

So far Obama I killing the middle class and shoveling the credit cards just to get votes. What that men has to say about runing a country if He never owned any business. I' m not so much in love with Romney but I will not cast another vote for Obama . Huge disapointment. So much money wasted and we are even in deeper hole. Do not believe at job report by looking at my company, my friends. It's not any better . People losing jobs, homes, savings, retirement money. We're raped in daylight
