My beautiful wife tried every treatment from the most modern to the most ancient. No luck and she was gone at the age of 43.

What “constitutional standards” does Romney fail? He is a Natural Born Citizen and old enough.

It is critical to get every vote possible against The Disaster no matter what you think of Romney’s religion. The Disaster MUST be removed for the children’s sake.

Why should we believe the college tuition part either? The guy is an obvious deadbeat, blaming, effectively, his daughter, as well as Romney. He had trouble adjusting his life style to his capability and still wants somebody else to take up the slack for him-——that’s a lifelong demorat if I ever heard one. The guy needs to be harassed, embarassed, and shamed into total and absolute silence, along with everyone else who helped put that dishonest piece of work together.

This guy can remember his $25,000 salary amount, and the $350 a month cost of his health insurance from 10 years ago, but he can't remember when his wife was injured on the job?

I should call him to find out where he found health insurance for $350/month. My wife and I are paying ~$2200/month for ours. That would be a steal!

He was a well-paid steelworker for 30 years, he said - why did he still have a mortgage to pay?

The real untold story in all of this is the role of the environmentalists in destroying the steel industry in this country. I’d sure like to see that story covered in the media.

The truly sad part is that if only CBSNBCABCFOXCNN (and radio moguls like Clear Channel) all put their collective feet down and refused to run any negative ads, then calumnies like the Bain attacks and "Romney killed my wife" would evaporate like a puddle on a hot day.

I read he was a custodian upthread. I don’t know if it was for a public school district, but if it was they generally get lumped into the negotiations done by the teacher’s unions and get to piggy-back on their cake benefits. I know, I used to be a public school custodian back in the day.

“Mr. Soptic said that after he lost his job, he found work as a school custodian about six months later and had the option to put her on his insurance plan. But he opted not to, he said, because he could not afford the more than $350 monthly premium on the $25,000 salary he was making, on top of paying his mortgage and a daughter’s college tuition. Ilyona Soptic was diagnosed with cancer in 2006 and died that year.”

Doesn’t this say that the cost of insurance was the issue not the lack of it. Obama has doubled the cost for everyone at my company and refuses to do anything about out of control lawsuits.

I know one thing, I’d find a way to pay for my wife’s insurance no matter what it took. Show me any a-hole that claims he couldn’t afford his families insurance and I’ll show you a guy that likely always had money for smokes, beer, a bag of weed, lottery tickets etc etc. This guys priorities were wrong and he’s guilty of not providing his wife insurance. Now we have to sit here and listen to him whine and blame Romney ? This is BS !!!

Hussein already knows that even if his “aides” have to walk back a Big Lie, the Hussein Heads and not a few alleged conservatives have already bought the lie.
