Romney: "Jeep, now owned by the Italians, is thinking of moving all production to China" Queue it up at 46 seconds and watch... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kcZr0UtLgkI Jeep CEO: "Jeep production will not be moved from the United States to China" http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-10-30/chrysler-ceo-reiterates-jeep-suv-production-will-remain-in-u-s-.html Now if anybody tries to tell you that Romney is not lying to you to sneak his way into office, there is your proof. I can't break it down any more simply for people. Romney is a deceptive used car sales man. He will tell you whatever he thinks will get him what he wants. He tells the base that he is a extreme conservative and makes all the promises that the fringe extreme wants and then turns to the voters and says that he is a bi-partisan. These are not mutually inclusive positions. He is lying to somebody. Are you ready to risk if he is lying to you?

2 Reasons You Shouldn’t Vote for Barack Obama 1. Barack Obama is a corporate suck-up. The President’s a member of the Democratic Party, which, like the Republican Party, consists of Washington whores working for their Wall Street pimps. With donations just under two million dollars, sugar daddies Wells Fargo and Deloitte are among the top 20 corporate contributors to the President and Mitt Romney. Obama’s pro-corporation policies led to an average annual corporate profit growth of 6.8 percent, which is three times higher than Ronald Reagan’s 2.3 percent. 2. Barack Obama unleashed unchecked military powers. He signed the National Defense Authorization Act of 2010, which for the first time in history permits the government to assassinate American citizens abroad, to hold citizens and foreigners without charge indefinitely in and outside the U.S., to subject those outside this country to rendition that allows brutal torture by allied governments, to suspend habeas corpus, to hold secret military trials, and to replace revolver-carrying cops with M4A1 carbine-slinging soldiers on our city’s streets. Guantanamo is still open. He escalated the war in Afghanistan and ordered the assassination of African heads of state after unilaterally declaring war on their countries. He continues to order the widespread use of drones over Pakistan.

Romney, 1) The best point any Romney support I have read on this board. Most are sitting here saying how Obama is killing coroporate profits. But you have to take this number with a grain of salt. The corporate growth has been large, but it is having to normalize after the -9.5% average annual profit growth under 8 years of Bush. 2)None of those things listed in #2 are new to the U.S. Government in the last 4 years. Its just the first time you have known they had the ability to do it, and know that they are. Do you think none of that was happening under, Reagan, Bush I, Clinton, or Bush II? It's just you think it is new news now.

Sorry got my George Bushes confused. George H. W. Bush was -9.5% growth, George W. Bush was -17.4% corporate growth.
