    It seems like more and more people are now realizing that Mitt Romney has based his entire campaign on false information. It does not take that much research to find out that his entire “political” career has been based on misleading and flip-flopping positions. American people cannot have a President that is known to be a liar. Particularly when it comes to such important issues as women’s rights (Lily Ledbetter Act, which he opposes) or equal rights (he opposes gay people having the same hospital visitation rights as straight people, for example) or even on an economic level; he would increase, by trillions of dollars the military, which they have not asked for, at a time when all Americans agree we should be moving OUT of Iraq and OUT of Afghanistan. So many lives have been lost. We are only just now finally beginning to come out of one of the most difficult times in our countries history and he wants to increase spending for war? And to top it off, Mitt Romney has the highest, domestic and international disapproval ratings of any president-hopeful in the history of the world. Higher than Bush. That is not American. That is not right. We should be proud to be American. We should be proud of our country. We are worth more than that.

      You should be ashamed of your commentary. I don’t know on what you are founding your “false information comment,” but why do you not stop and take a look at the facts–the out-of-control deficit; the incredibly high unemployment rate; the welfare entitlement of this society that lives off of government handouts generated by the hard-working taxpayers; the anti-Israel sentiment of the current President and his staff; the death and cover ups of Americans in Benghazi; and that is only to mention a few of Obama’s “accomplishments.” I, for one, prefer spending trillions on my Country’s defense, rather than the same amount on a bunch of lazy people that do not want to earn their own living. I, for one, want to build again the strongest nation so that other countries live in fear of us and our greatest ally, Israel.
      You are right about being proud of our Country–with Obama as President, I am NOT proud!
