Elemental style, presence of character to step above even above the uber rich - "Vanderbilt Kowtows to us . . . J.P. Morgan scrapes and bows to us." All from "Hello, Dolly." You can make the people come up to your (standards) and not roll in the gutter so to speak. But it aint negative in "Hello Dolly." very optimistic.

Is this a slam or a compliment? Mitt has a lot of class, all around Toni on NCIS, This he was born with, hard to adapt the persona.

It means the more he tries to reach the masses with style and ease, the more he stumbles over his tongue. He tries so hard to show he understands the common man, he looks silly. He's a privileged male...never play against type!

My aren't we jealousy? How many poor people have hired you? Answer- none must be 3rd generation welfare. A waste is a terrible thing to mind.

We better pray he doesn't and all christians need to take time to make their vote count. But if Obama does win how often do you think he will blame himself for the mess this country has been in for the last 4 yrs under his administration.

He'll still be blaming Bush until the day he dies. When he goes down in history as the worst president we've ever had (even Carter) he'll still be blaming Bush.

It means the squawker is just another voter who is blinded by all the entitlements he or she makes a career of.

I could really dig John McCain. Even with his baked Alaska tart. I supported him. Enough. After watching this tape with the tawny rat's mouth set, if you guys don't understand Romney don't want us and we have no seat at his table you will never get him. It is straight out of his mouth. He doesn't give a rat's a_ _ about the working men and women who made this country great and the uber-rich wealthy. This isn't conservatism, it is elitism. He just spewed human waste all over the working class and then said, "hey, look folks. In China they are putting workers in dormitories behind a fence in rooms with 12 roommates and, golly gee whiz, they are really happy and producing so much and working 12-16 hours per day. And, gracious me, there are lines of hungry people who want their jobs. Now don't you see how much our working class ought to appreciate what we give them here in America. Heh, heh." Where is the hope in this for Americans? Write in Ron Paul!

FryarTuck , I don't think I would call a former governor of a US state a "tart." That shows an extreme lack of class in my opinion. Sometimes to loudest words are not spoken. Oh, and a vote for Ron Paul will just be another vote for Obama.

FryarTuk 2 years, 1 month ago

She's not a former governor. She's an ex-governor. She quit when she got her a new wardrobe, hussy red lipstick and a new do. Man, she was off to the big city with bright lights. A vote for Ron Paul is a vote of conviction something the Romney and his collect have little familiarity with.

How many times you guys gonna let this fellow who doesn't have one bit of respect for you, nothing but contempt for you, hustle you. Where is your self respect? Your self esteem? I mean this guy calls you trailor trash and you just eat it up. Just like a dog going back to its vomit.

Ron Paul! Now and forever!

Jake, did you make that up or find it in at a Christian Science Reading Room? Write in for Ron Paul, he won't insult you!

Bulldawg, Fryar has his lucid moments. Don't expect them to occur while discussing Romney.

Say what you will. Ask Obama who paid his college tuition....Then ask Romney who paid his....Ask Obama how much he has given to charity...Ask Romney the same, he won't tell you, but he gave his ENTIRE inheritance from his father to charity....Character? Elegance? Does it matter?.....You decide.

Isn't that tax deductible? By the way, he has such little faith in this country, he keeps his money in an off shore account. Oh, yeah! He's big on America! What a classy guy!

1

gotanyfacts 2 years, 1 month ago

Yes, it's tax deductible. Your point? As for off shore accounts, there are a variety of reasons for having them as John Kerry, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, and Nancy Pelosi are aware.Those reasons include lowering taxes and making international business transactions easier. It is not an indication of faith in the US economy, necessarily. None of them, including Romney, has all of their money in these accounts. It's interesting that Democrats can create heat over the issue but not receive any. Ah, that's the media for you.

FryarTuk 2 years, 1 month ago

Are you sure? I thought he gave that to his 5 children in the form of a trust? It escapes a generation of taxation don't you know.

At least a portion of it, if not all, went to BYU. By all accounts outside of the democrat propaganda machine, also known as the mainstream media, Romney is exceedingly generous. Even if he did as you said, do you suggest that good estate planning is a character flaw?

Bulldawg 2 years, 1 month ago

Fryar Tuck, If you are elected to the position than you would use former. Ex is usually used when reffering to a former husband or wife. Let's not play semantics. I guess with your logic all of our former presidents are ex presidents, which will soon include Obama on the list. My question to you is, what has Obama do for you lately except spend your money? You must think that Obama "respects" us by spending all of our hard earned tax dollars for failed policies and other boondoggles.

Sorry not to respond sooner. Was travelling to the Classic City for a gridiron contest. If you think I carry a torch for Obama you aint thinking right. I'm sick and tired of both parties. If you think the GOP isn't at least 50% to blame for the economy and foreign relations you are crazy. The needless wars and adventurism of George Bush squandered the huge reserves Clinton and Monica Lewinsky had left. Not only did Bush's disastrous wars and tax reduction without tax reform decimate our treasury Hank Paulsen essentially initiated the great collapse of the global banking infrastructure by revengefully allowing Lehaman Brothers to implode after the run on their cash reserves. Then "W" came up with the TARP. Then Obama and you can have your way with him. Now move on to Mittens and Lyin' Ryan. Whatever they are they are not conservatives and have offered absolutely no plans for the restructuring of the economy. Truthfully, there isn't a nickle worth of difference between Barry and MIttens with the possible exception of foreign policy and Mittens doesn't seem to be a Metternich. Party people are stuck with their devices but I say write in for RON PAUL. We are all ready planning a victory party at the Pizza Hut.

Given the way our process works, the best thing to do is vote AGAINST the incumbernt. Multiple terms seem to corrupt even the best politician.

$10 Trillion in added debt (more than ALL previous President combine), a twice down graded credit rating, an out of control unemployment rate, embassies unguarded that result in deaths of ambassadors (while Valarie Jarrett gets a full secret service detail), unsecured borders, ballooning welfare rolls, Fast and Furious...shall I continue? If you think this adds up to a healthy USA, please, vote for Obama (and Sanford Bishop, for that matter) again. I can't wait for the debates (without a teleprompter) so that Obama can be further revealed for the incompetent that he is...

Jacob, you are the only one being an idiot here. I guess you are not familliar with the expression "Even a fool is considered wise if he keeps his mouth shut." If I am I talking from my "cake hole" as you put it, then you are talking from your butt, or well you know.... south bound mule. I think you get the idea. Maybe you should think about this a little when you are forming your thoughts for your next comment. If you read my previous post I was reffering to Fryar Tuck's calling Sarah Palin a "Tart." Those kinds of defaming words should be limited to high school locker rooms and not public forums. Decorum is key in thses types of situations.

Bulldawg, you have a might thin skin to be on a blog. Why don't you saddle up and come on up to the Classic City and enjoy the dawgs kicking around the Vandy boys.. You can externalize some of that pent up anger and frustration. Have a little bulldawg elixir and otherwise have a howling good time. And oh yeah, WRITE IN FOR YOU KNOW, RON PAUL.

Romney gave 1/3 of his income to charity. He is a class act. He is just what America needs. Abusinessman with a record of success. Obama, if you look at Chicago, was a failure at organizing the community. And hes been a failure as President. Need evidence? Open your eyes and your mind and take a look at the country today. Step out of the media induced Obama coma that has the Obamabots so misinformed.
