Why did Mitt Romney take so long to release his tax forms? Harry Reid is right. Mitt Romney does think 47 percent of the people are stupid and dumb.
How could Chuck Hatfield, Superintendent of Putnam County Schools, not know when a high school student is completely knocked out by a freak accident, especially when that student is the son of a teacher?
This concerns the DHHR director not coming in to the Charleston-based office. The other departmental directors need to be checked out too. I know of one who only comes into the office two hours a week.
I wish someone would explain to Mr. Raese that he and Manchin are not from the same party. You know, Manchin is a Democrat and is supposed to vote for Obama and Harry Reid. Raese's commercials are starting to make him look stupid.
Some people need to stop listening to the liberal media. Romney never said he didn't care about the 47 percent of Americans [who] pay no taxes. What he clearly said, and I agree with, is that he should not waste his time campaigning to those people that get government assistance that fully support Obama.
If I were running for office, and I knew that 47 percent were solidly behind the other candidate, then I wouldn't waste my valuable time with them either. . . . Just like Obama wouldn't go to a conservative group to campaign. This is just another attempt to assassinate the character of a Republican.
The people at AARP got it right in booing Mr. Ryan. His budget ideas, endorsed by Gov. Romney, would be horrible for America's seniors. President Obama's health-care plan is endorsed not only by AARP, but by most of the consumer and health-care organizations.
I happen to own 200 shares of Proctor and Gamble, which pays me a dividend that is taxed at 15 percent. Some people claim that makes me a "job creator," but that makes no sense. I do not understand why money I work very hard to earn is taxed at twice the rate of money that I don't work for. Everyone who pays a higher tax rate than Romney should be voting for President Obama and a Senate and House that will support working people.
Our Foxy Fake News is doing advertising for the GOP every night with their attacks on Democrats. We all know the Republicans are losing in just about every election and are looking to pull all the stops out at any cost with more of their frivolous junk.
To the [reader] trying to re-write what Willard Romney said in a recorded speech about 47 percent of the voters in our country: It is not working.
Am I the only person alive who realizes that the common man does not vote for president? The electoral is the only thing that counts, so why bother.
Lay off the NFL replacement refs! Find someone else to blame when your team loses. I don't remember people being too happy with the guys they replaced either. Abuse of officials by coaches and fans at every level has become intolerable.
Don't worry about the coming 'fiscal cliff.' Congress will do what it does best -- kick it down the road a few months. They will not worry about that today, they will worry about that tomorrow.
I agree about Natalie Tennant. She no doubt proves the "Peter Principle" to be valid.
Concerning politicians making robo-calls, I listen to them and then cross any candidate who uses them off my list. I would encourage others to do the same. With me, these calls are no better than telemarketing calls.
