I don't agree with you cousin! I don't like what I see happening under Obama!!

Paula, I appreciate another political point of view, especially when it comes from a Murray.

But do you really believe that 47 percent of the nation is a bunch of layabouts just waiting for government to take care of us?

Romney's statement doesn't make you squirm just a little?

I guess David Brooks' MARVELOUS column today is the first and last word on this matter:

The only argument I have is a quibble with Brooks' last paragraph: "Personally, I think [Romney is] a kind, decent man who says stupid things because he is pretending to be something he is not — some sort of cartoonish government-hater. But it scarcely matters. He’s running a depressingly inept presidential campaign. Mr. Romney, your entitlement reform ideas are essential, but when will the incompetence stop?"

I guess maybe Romney once WAS a decent man; and I know he had a decent father. But I don't think Romney has any idea who he is at this stage. And from one minute to the next, I don't think he even knows who he's pretending to be.

As an outside observer, Romney's campaign reminds me of a scene from 'Talladega Nights' - the one where Ricky Bobby tries to drive down a residential street blindfolded, sideswiping numerous parked cars on either side before finally crashing into a house.

My question is whether Romney has now hit the 'house' or is still swerving?
