Same old same old only with a different spin. He said he would turn things around in the country and if he didn't we could vote him out of office. Well, I am NOT BETTER OFF today. So the guys got to go. I like him as a man and father. But as the commander and chief? He just don't cut it.

I'm no better off, far from it. He made BIG, unrealistic promises 4 yrs ago and few have been kept. Romney's promises seem to be more realistic and he has my vote.

I'm much better off now than I was 4 years ago thanks to the brains I was born with... smart investments, stop spending frivolously, save, save, save! Yes, we all believed the President's promises 4 years ago and they didn't come true, but because of that, how can one buy into the promises of Mr. Romney?... couldn't he also be telling tall tales? I guess time will tell.

Bill Clinton stole the spotlight the night before, proved to be the consummate politician, the better liar.

Obama tried mightily, but as every American knows all too well through personal experience, the President proved his inadequacy as a politician and leader once again.

Everyone's speech was great, Republicans and Democrats.

Too bad everything on both sides ends with the speech and never in reality. I'm afraid the president is going to be a 1-termer, just as Romney will be too if he doesn't deliver.

Liar, liar, pants on fire!

The party and the president are almost like two different animals. The president clearly does not fact check his speeches beforehand. He just reads what he's told to read.

His handlers think we, the electorate, are not paying attention. Maybe they are right in their assumption.

Bill Clinton gave a great speech. FactCheck.org claims he was right on target. Check the site for Obama and Romney. You might be surprised.

Why didn't Clinton deliver the same speech about Obama that he did when his pseudo wife Hillary was running? (Look it up, it makes for interesting , insightful comparative reading)
Seems his opinion of our resident president changed DRAMATICALLY after Hillary baby lost the nomination....

I guess it speaks to the credibility of our nation's leadership...and the intellectual shortcomings of our sound-byte, poorly educated electorate.

"Why did you vote for Obama sir?"..."err...my daddy was a deemokrat, so I vote deemokrat all the time, and my union rep told me to, or else the other guy will take away my overtime pay, and my first born female child. BTW, is he still vice president?"

Fritzdawg,

Maybe you did not see the video of Bush, and what do they have to do with Romney anyway? The only reason Obama had Clinton there is, even though he used an intern as a humidor people still like him. Since you have been a liberal protester since you were a preteen you should know that.

wmarincic:
Or is it because it might remind Romney supporters that they want to put the party back in power that royally screwed everything up in the first place?

And yeah, people still like Clinton, which is a lot more than You can say for Bush.

Fritzdawg...how was the Kool-aid?
Aren't you the guy I just quoted in my previous post?

Quite frankly...simply speaking the way you do...'simply'...you are proving my point.
Just continue the mantra and a continue to blame our woes on a real President, and a real American, just as your handlers command.
Good boy!! wanna a cookie?
