Can anyone tell me why the networks are carrying the scum POtuS' campaign speech? 

Why is he getting free airtime to spew his lies and propaganda?  Is Romney going to have the same time to rebut? Where's the news in his speech??? WTH???  He just had one of these last week!!!

He’s having trouble completing this. He keeps stuttering and the audience seems dead.

He’s coming across as beat up and desperate. Or at least his teleprompter is.

Speaking of that: There’s a photo of him at several locations at the VA Medical Center I go to for treatment. They tell me they have to clean the spittle off of them several times a day.

Just the mere act of electing Romney as our President will cause a massive wave of upstarts, hiring, loans, upsurge in manufacturing and productivity, reduction in disability claims and food stamp applications, to name a few.. His FIRST act in office should be the retrieval of the bust of Winston Churchill back from Britain for placement back into the White House. What an awesome moment this will be!

He's not lieing.

Everything he says is true.

BUT:

Every argument he attributes to anyone other than himself is really what is true ABOUT HIMSELF.

This is the clever, clean and well spoken black man that hit the scene in the DNC address of 2004.

I keep hearing Joe Wilson shout ..

"You Lie "

He mentions “stalemate in Washington”, but he’s never been caught working with congress. He’s a lazy bum, which is a big reason the stalemate has been perpetuated.

Yep. Thankfully he is too lazy and arrogant to do the best thing for his reelection which would be showing up for work at 8 am in Oval Office. If he just engaged Congress and got down to work on the business of the nation his approval ratings would improve.

Only the dimmest bulbs haven't figured out yet that he just has no interest in being an engaged POTUS. His antics look so juvenile in comparison to a serious businessman like Romney.

The undecideds are breaking to Romney because they want a serious leader on economic issues and not a buffoonish Barack Kardasian.

...usually followed by a straw man that he then proceeds to attempt to knock down. (Its odd, though, that he even does a poor job knowcking down straw men of his own making.)

Does Romney use a teleprompter all the time? I didn’t see him using a teleprompter today.. He said the full name of a private business owner he ran into in San Diego, and mentioned other small businesses by name and statistics which is pretty impressive if not using a teleprompter.

But Romney has an unfair advantage. He is intelligent and has experience in getting things done through his own efforts. If Barky had those advantages he wouldn't need a teleprompter either. He does the best he can, given his own unique gifts.

“stalemate in Washington”

Well, HE had Democrat majorities in both houses of Congress the first two years of HIS term. If HE had focused on the economy instead of treating the Presidency as a part-time job, and provided leadership those first two years, HE wouldn't have to be begging for four more years.

Giving HIM four more years would be interpreted as a mandate that the people are behind HIM. HE would not focus on the economy. After all, HE's already said that climate change will be HIS focus during a second term.

And you can take this to the bank... if HE does win and if HE does focus on climate change, the actions to be taken to address that utopian topic, the economy will be even worse off in four more years than it is today. What will HE do then? Beg to repeal the amendment limiting President's to two terms in office, so HE can have more time to fix things?

The problem is that HE has an agenda and the primary element of that agenda does not include fixing the economy; it consists of imposing even harsher controls on all of us who need energy, such that even more businesses cannot survive in such an economic and regulatory environment.

I'd like to see a GOP ad coming out in favor of "Climate Change", but not the meteroligical climate. The political climate in Washington that needs changing, by electing a filibuster-proof GOP-led Senate.

I for one am tired of so-called leaders squandering so much of their political capital on issues that are not important to me or others; there comes a time to double-down and get the country running again.

The problem is that the current administration has focused so much on the social side that our economy cannot sustain itself in the current regulatory environment.

The golden goose of a growing economy that provides the resources to aid the underprivileged is almost dead. When we spend the bulk of our resources on non-productive activities and tax and regulate the productive side of our economy to death, pretty soon, there won't be any resources to support those non-productive activities any more. We're very close to being there now. As the libs like to say about climate change, "we've reached a tipping point" on the economy.

I say let's concentrate our efforts on the economy. And when we see it's nearing recovery, we can then start to look at the social side of gvernment. As President Reagan was fond of saying, "A rising tide lifts all boats."

If you try to lift those boats without the support of the tides, your results are sporadic and ineffectual for all boats... you can only lift a few of them. I say let's focus on activities that will lift up them all. When we do that, those who are left behind will be much fewer by more than half. We shouldn't be jeopardizing all of them by focusing on just a few.

Okay, I just previewed more of Romney's speech and there is NOT a teleprompter to be seen.. This doesn't mean he'll be a good president but it's VERY refreshing to see a man speak off the cuff yet stay on point, remember names, places, statistics and most of all speak of America's greatness with unabashed sincerity.

Here's a photo from his 'jobs plan' speech in Nevada, Sept. 2011

Remember the Pelosi-Schumer-you name it screams of ‘jobless recovery’? That was how the Dem took the 2006 election.

And what did Pelosi-Reid do for their first act? Yep, minimum wage increase ........ They got exactly what they wanted, more plantation people dependent on the gubbmint.
