    We are not sick and tired of anything. If we did, we would stop it. Truth of the matter is, both political parties are taking advantage of American people and exploiting them every day. Lobbyist and special interest have complete and total control of both parties. Regardless of who wins, American people are going to continue to lose as long as we continue to allow special interest in this country. As long as our pantries are full, our cars have full tank of gas, and we come home to a six pack of beer, no one will ever question anything. We listen and blindly trust corporate media that represents corporations in the disguise of journalism. As long as their bills are paid by corporations, they won't represent the interests of people of the united states. This is plain and simple but we don't want to believe it because it would require us to get out of our comfortable lazy chairs and do something about it.

    We dont have jobs today because Romney came in and bought companies for pennies in the 90's and sold them for millions overseas. He is the root of your problems. Wake up. Better yet look it up. Just check your business sources.

    Romney is not telling the truth. Anyone who has worked in an executive office of the Chairman/CEO and President knows that NO decision is made without his knowledge. I don't care where he is or what he is doing you will not make a decision without his knowledge unless of course he is dead then it goes to his executor. Come on People wake up.

    Romney can talk about his business record but no one else can talk about his record? Also if he's that much of an angel, does he remember running the same kind of campaign against his Republican nominees? Please give me a break

    We are loosing focus on the real root cause of jobs and buzzwordsl like insourcing and outsourcing are further polorising
    The country and not solvingthe problem. Bottom line the government does not create job.

    IRomney and Obama Ads – We turn off the sound when they come on because we're already sick and tired of the negative ads (Romney's especially as they are on every 5 minutes).
