    Romney return to being a private citizen, and knowing we won't have to listen to him or his lies any more.  How he reached 45% in all those states will forever be a mystery to me.  I can't believe the racist vote is that large.  What did people see in him?  As the campaign rolled on, I was less and less able to tolerate a word from him--even reading clips from his speeches was unbearable.  My dislike for this man personally was almost beyond bounds.

        My mom in Iowa heard this argument from an elderly neighbor who had been in business and said a vote for Romney would be a vote for business...

        I think this is somebody who traditionally always voted Republican and has never needed to think about much. As long as the candidate wears a suit and tie and has "R" after his name, that's good enough.

        I think there are a lot of people disengaged with current events. Perhaps FOX news and the other MSM news are a turnoff, but they aren't really internet readers either.

        I love it that Obama's channeling Harry Truman: "I don't give 'em hell; I just tell the truth and they think it's hell!"
