    Romney, romney, romney...... Talks jobs but has he explained how he's going to help the situation, or is it just another blow hard script? Its to bad that he's going down the same road as the others..... If some one would just come up with a plan that everybody can agree on that would benefit everybody it would be nice! But until than its still everyone for themselves

    He talks the talk for sure! He has also said he likes to fire people, so i doubt he walks the walk!!

    And a great leader is only as good as the team behind him! The team behind our present leader are a bunch of spoiled schmucks that have taken the US to the cleaners and still left it dirty!! Time to replace each and every one of em!
