    Romney the job destroyer, the man who promises a better economy and jobs!! The man who destroyed businesses and peoples lives just to make millions of dollars!! Destroying steal mills and jobs, jobs sent over seas to so he can be a millionaire!! I saw an ad by ROMNEY "help save the America we know"!! What America is that? The one where everyone is equal or the America of today where only Billionaires and Millionaires are the only ones that counte? I see Romney as he is a Greedy Repulican Millionaire who cares about only money not the American People

    If we didn't have so many one issue voters they would look beyond the smoke and mirriors campaign by Mitt Romneys millionaire friends people would realize what really at stake for the future of the American worker. With the gay marrige issue in the lime light voters don.t see that the so called job creators are more concerned with cutting taxes even more on the rich and sending more jobs overseas. When you cut the taxes of the working class that gives them more disposable income to spend. This spending stimulates the economy and creates jobs that eventually makes the wealthy business increase their income. The middle class working people of America just want a better lifestyle for their families, they don't want to be the barrons of Wall Street. We've tried giving tax breaks to the wealthy and nothing trickled down to the middle class so let's try giving the tax breaks to the middle class and see if the wealth tricles up.
    If more people are working this also means more tax revenue at all levels of government thereby reducing debt. So let's try something different by putting money in the pockets of the working class and I think we'll really find out who are the real job creators.

    People seem to forget that it was during the Clinton Administration that American jobs were first shipped overseas. When private employers saw what the government did under NAFTA, they may well have decided that they could ship jobs overseas too and cut costs.

    Brooke Baldwin and the rest of you....smh, why are you acting like this ad is the end of the world! I have seen far worse and misleading ads from Super PACs.

    TRUTH! We are interested in a discussion of jobs and growing the economy and who has the best plan to fix this mess created by GREED ( I won't even say Republicans or Democrats)! If Romney wants to cite Bain as his reason for hiring him as President then we need to know the full story! Stop being full of drama on the issue and give us the story like true journalism is supposed to do, so that we as Americans can make an informed decision. OR... CNN are you no different than the talking heads and political pundants. How about Let's Make Deal... check to see the last time Romney mentioned Bain in his Stomp Speeches. If he hasn't mentioned it then its not fair game, but if he has... (which according to Anderson he has and was short on some of the truth) then please stop the drama and give us complete information!! LOL... or are you all about your ratings rather than the truth?

    Coverage is seeming just as Talking Point Heavy as the campaigns. Do your jobs!
