I's not about party but who's money our politicians are spending and how much they are spending and what they are spending it on. Just look at Pres Bush and how many (or few, relative to the O'bamas) he took. When you say he went to his ranch, IT WAS HIS RANCH! The O'bamas can't go home because the White House is their home. They do take a vacation at my expense more frequently than any other first family in history. Pres Bush would routinely cut firewood on his ranch while he was off. In contrast, The Obamas are using their 4 years to tour the world at our outrageous expense, often taking separate planes because the timing wasn't convenient. They have to have a huge entourage every time they go anywhere. We pay for all of this. It was a whole lot cheaper for W to cut firewood. Mitt and W both made their own money honestly and should be allowed to spend it how they wish. I am just thankful that a man with Mitt Romney's integrity and character has chosen to offer his service to us and undergo the scrutiny that only conservative candidates have to endure when he could have easily sat back and enjoyed the fruits of his labor. President Obama, on the other hand, has never provided a job for anyone that was not government related. Nearly all of his earnings have been taxpayer dollars. He will not tell us how in the world a poor black child who confesses to have been a dope smoking, class avoiding poor student with nearly no ambition got admitted to an ivy league college or better yet, paid for it. I understand daddy Bush paid W's college. Romney gave away his inheritance to charity and put himself through school and started his own business investments. Now please tell me how Obama got into Harvard - academically and financially - with such a lackluster start.
