    Only he will forget to provide the link. :laugh:

    As Buggs Bunny used to say, "What a maroon." :laugh:

    Why should he apologize for showing a news story? It is Obama's supporters that should be ashamed.

    Obama and the Democrats depend on stupidity and illogical hatred of rich people. Suppose Romney was responsible for laying this man off and they lost their health insurance? This sickness did not appear until years later, could not the man have gone out and found other work?

    People have come to believe they are entitled to security. Life offers no man security, including Mitt Romney, he has to work and provide for his family like any other man.

    All reasonable people realize that business must at times cut back and lay off people. It is unfortunate, but it is a fact of life.

    Obama and his gang appeal to folks who want things for free. They resent folks who work hard and make a success of themselves like Mitt Romney.

    No one is guaranteed a job, ever.

    Romney was gone from Bain for 6 years before that happened, it was reported on FNC today.

    So, how many people have lost their jobs and health insurance and died since obama was sworn in? Thousands upon thousands? Is obama responsible for their deaths because they lost their jobs and lost health insurance?

    Really. Talk about obama and his camp grasping at straws......:rolleyes:

    Winman, that was my first reaction when I heard this story on the radio. What was he doing for 5 years that he couldn't get a job with some sort of health benefits? Even at that, health coverage doesn't prevent cancer.

    Part of me wants to be sympathetic toward a man who lost his wife to cancer. The other part of me wants to puke that 1.) the man would let himself be used like this and 2) this new low would come into the political discussion. What's October and November going to bring?

    Obama releasing all of his "sealed records" nobody has ever seen, like his college transcripts? Yeh, right.

    Hopefully, November will bring a win for Romney. :thumbs:

    Seven years ago the shop I worked at 15 years closed down, they moved to Brazil and China.

    Not to boast, but I went down to the Unemployment Office every day and searched the databases. I sent out dozens of resumes. Within six weeks I had a new job. I had to take a big pay cut compared to what I WAS making, and I had no insurance for 3 months. But in the end it all worked out and now I make a better than average wage for blue collar work and have insurance including dental and glasses for my family.

    Because my job was outsourced, I could have collected unemployment for two years, however I would have only received about 60 percent of my pay with no benefits. No way I could live on that, I looked for a job!

    And you know, the folks at the Unemployment Office said they knew I would get a job soon, because they didn't remember anyone putting so much time and effort into it.

    That is not a boast, I had faith in God that he would take care of me and my family, but I also knew I had to get out there and make it happen.

    It's all how you are raised. If you are taught that life owes you, that is what you believe. My parents taught me that life is what you make of it.

    That is about as low of an ad as I have ever seen. Not that Obama was ever a consideration, but this cements his character. I just saw a Romney ad here in Oregon while on vacation. It was very positive. It never mentioned Obama's character or lack thereof. He talked about turning around the budget of the Olympics and MA.

    Forget this issues just for a moment. The tone of these two ads side by side says tons about the inner makeup of each man.
