We are well past the first debate. Past the second and third and just a few days from the election. I think this topic should be deleted.

"Even the republicans agree Obama's massive stimulus spending worked."

But Harper's massive stimulus spending did not, according to that twit, which shows it be a two-faced hypocrite of the first order.

Like you always say - zilch. Just lies, innuendo, half-truths and broad statements never substantiated with facts. A space waster of the first order.

"Obama has not fixed the big mess."

The kind of mess Bush got America into cannot be fixed in 4 years.

Like I said. harper cant even fix his own mess after 4 years

If Dubya got 8 years as President, Obama should get 12 or 16. An honest comparison between Dubya and Obama clearly points to that. Who after all was it who totally fucked up the US economy and ran huge deficits. One can complain that Obama hasn't done enough to fix what Dubya screwed up, but keep in mind whose mess Obama has been dealing with.

There is one difference. Romney genuinely believes in his platform and genuinely believes his platform will help reverse damage done by the Obama Administration. Romney is not feigning enthusiasm for his platform. Obama came across as a lecturer who forgot to bring his course material to the event. In summary, Romney comes across as being sincere and Obama did not come across as being sincere. We'll have to wait and see but what Obama tried during the past four years has not worked. America's reputation, on the world stage, has diminished under Obama. Time it was reinstated.

Could be he's set Romney up for the big fall? Romney is smiling right now with with his "win". However, the Oct. 16 debate is a different style, where Romney doesn't do as well (off the cuff, town hall format). The winner tonight will be the one with momentum and I think you'll see Obama attack hard, putting Romney on his heels. IMO

In 2006, during a time of global uncertainty, Canada needed the political guidance of a Stephen Harper. This guidance has kept Canada afloat.

In 2012, during this time of global uncertainty, the USA needs the political guidance of a Mitt Romney Government to reverse the damage done by four years of an Obama administration.
