      For one to say something about not wanting to reveal ones plans you should really watch 2016, you will see Obama's plan is to diminish America. Romney and Ryan have anounced their plans to roll back job killing regulations, repeal Obamacare, Put back the $700 billion that Obama robbed from medicaire and $500 billion that Obama robbed from the defense budget to fund a health care package chock full of death panels and health rationing known as Obamacare. Romney and Ryan plan to rebuild the America that once was self reliant, Obama wants to diminish America to a welfare nation.

    Can you pull out some proof that he said that? Online it said that the Romney campaign won't release his speech so I don't know if he actually said those things. I was REALLY upset when I heard those comments, I now just want to verify if they are true. Where are you all getting your info from so that I can look and confirm this for myself.

    It's safe to say, that yet again most blacks will vote for Obama. They feel some pull with him somehow. Maybe they think he'll finally free them from whatever "bonds" they believe are holding them down. I could really care less. If I were black, I still wouldn't vote for Obama. Romney isn't my first choice either, but at least I can relate to him because of his work ethic. This country has just gotten lazy. I've got "mixed blood" in my family too. Doesn't make me biased. I'm not racist, and I'll be the first to stand up next to any other man and shake his hand. I just feel that minorities in general can see past the color of his skin and look into his past. He hasn't accomplished one thing, but I guess most voters can relate to that too...

    Since Mitt Romney wants to address his lineage, Didn't Andrew Jackson revoke the 40 acres and a mule to all freed slaves (which Mr. Romney family owned) after President Lincoln was assassinated? Can Mitt Romney relate to what was stolen from slaves besides land? The only thing I understand about what he stated is that he knows how to become a master to slaves like his grandpappy. Listen I am not African American but it doesn't matter what race a person is to recognize that is a racist statement!!!!!!
