It was allowing Obama to call him names for months without hitting back for one thing. But I still think that the moron social security / medicare recipients once again were convinced that Romney/ Ryan's plan to save medicaid / social security was gonna take away their gummint check.
The very bastard that is hastening the bankruptcy of the nation and ensuring that social security and every other welfare program is insolvent managed to convince them that Romney/Ryan were a threat to their government teat.
Can't you just love the irony?
not a chance!!! Our senior citizens were well aware that Romney/Ryan's plan was to change S.S. and Medicare for future participants (15 or more) years in the future.
That will be done sooner or later but I hope not too far in the future, or it won't work either. There may have been a handful of seniors who believed the pathetic Obama scare tactics, but the bulk of seniors are educated in this matter and are not fooled by nonsense scare tactics.
Obama is appealing to his uneducated masses, Blacks, Hispanics, young women...and they are the ones who elected him. That fact should make you very uncomfortable but not surprised. They elected a totally unqualified, incompetent person to lead the free world....he failed miserably so they re-elected him....when you are dealing with lesser intelligences, this is the result you should expect!!!
