“You’ve heard of the New Deal, the square deal, the fair deal. Mitt Romney’s trying to sell you a sketchy deal. You don’t need a sketchy deal,” Obama said. “The last time this sketchy deal was tried was when the previous administration made the same sales pitch.”

The vocabulary of a campaign that is using vocabulary words like sketchy isn't sounding too intelligent. Putting the other guy down to make yourself look better may be appealing to a low mentality, but any grown up listening to this has got to be wondering 'is that all you got'?

The Etchy Sketchy Man doesn’t exactly have principles.

That said, Obama needs to go in a mirror. He can hardly accuse Mitt Happens of what he himself never lived up to!

So Barry is as much a hypocrite as his opponent but wants to pretend to the American people he’s a saint.

We’re not buying it!

Actually refuting Romeny’s actual economic plan isn’t easy because it is based in fundamental economics. Can anyone explain ‘building an economy from the middle class out’? An unknown in macroeconomics, could Obama even explain how that works?

I think Obama is a “miserable failure”

Let’s see. I can choose Romney’s sketchy deal that incorporates the failed policies of economic and and personal freedom OR Obama’s glorious path forward that is based on the rock solid foundation established by Marx, Lenin, Stalin, and Mao.

I think what you can say...is that the Obama team just never grasped priorities or where screw-ups would lead them. If they’d spent the first two years working on budget cuts, jobs for America, and the economy...then re-election for the Democrats in 2010 would have been easier. They simply didn’t grasp the true problem with the US economy.

Now, they get four years into this mess....realizing that they really didn’t know the true impact of recession, and want to fix it. But what they’ve offered on the table...doesn’t appeal to many voters and leaves too many question marks. You almost feel like they wanted to work on everything....except the economy, for four years.

I heard the speech...well, as much as I could take.

He was using his cocky black accent.
