So Mitt needs 80% of the in play to win.

what mother names her baby Mitt. Why not a normal name like Barrack.

Barrack is a sound my cat makes when she coughs up a fur ball. Baarackkkkk...

Mubarak (name), an Arabic name meaning "blessed". Variously written Barak or Barack. The Hebrew cognate of Mubarak is Baruch.

Alternatively:

Barak, Hebrew for "lightning". This word is also transliterated as Baraq. The Arabic cognate of Barak is Buraq.

Just because the name Barack is perhaps uncommon to white Americans doesn't mean it's a stupid name

Romney will campaign on the economy if he's smart. The "0" bomb can't, so he will run on his "share the wealth" BS. A fair share for everyone. Jobs for all who want one. Food stamps and freebies for those who don't. Freebies for illegals. Come on up and get in on the gravy train.

Romney needs to choose his words carefully because he had angered many Canadians which is hard to do. Americans are entitled to Canadian oil, wow! Actually he said Americans deserve Canadian oil but that shows his entitlement. Then he says he'll come to my country himself to build the pipeline. What if we do not allow you to have it entitled Romney. It's my oil, it's Canadian oil and he will not dictate to me or any Canadian who we give it to and we as Canadians deserve it. It's ours. It's not his .

No offense, but what does this matter except to show that he is a tool in the way he turns a phrase when he opens his trap? Canadians can't vote for our President.....

Since the topic was about Obama and Romney, I gave my opinion on Romney. I was not aware that because I'm Canadian, I can't have an opinion on an American issue. And I think it's relevant when someone who wants to become president of America speaks about issues regarding my country. Who cares if I can vote in your election. As a Canadian citizen, I am allowed to have an opinion on oil that is in my country and an opinion on a man who says he wants said oil in my country. If my PM said comments about your oil in this way, I am sure most Americans would have an opinion on it.

And it's a known fact that America and Canada are close allies so when a presidential hopeful pisses off that allie country, it's relevant. The same way Gingrich pissed off our French population when he bashed the French. When two countries are so close, it's relevant what one says about the other country.

Thought Romney's name was actually Willard but he just goes by Mitt.

Whoa, I'm not trying to say you can't have an opinion on US Presidential candidates, guess that came out wrong! Sorry. And you are absolutely right about NOT pissing off our border/sister countries. There are MANY Canadians who winter down here in Sarasota. They are lovely, lovely people and I have a good many friends who are from Canada. I for one won't vote for Romney, and statements like he made regarding Canadian oil is just one reason.

OH, I did not know that. Lightning Obama sounds better. There are many people named Lightning; for example... well none come to mind but maybe a lot of Hebrews. They, of course, change thier name to something more common like Erimitus. And Barrack is still a sound my cat makes when she coughs up a fur ball.

Yeah but when he said he was going to redistribute the wealth I did not think he was going to take it from me and give it to the rich.

If that is not how you meant it, then my apologies on my being testy, I got the impression you were saying my opinion is irrelevant because I'm Canadian and it does not matter Romney talks this way about our oil but if I misread your post, my sincerest apologies.

I am quite sure he did not mean it the way he said all those comments about Canadian oil but the way he said it, made a lot of Canadians think he feels entitled to our oil and no matter what he is coming for our oil. He needs to realize it's not his oil, he had no right to it unless my country allows that. He is an entitled person and I do not say that because he's rich as I know many with money who are nit this way but to me, he comes across ad entitled, especially after his many comments about our oil. It was not, I'll talk to PM Harper to work on an oil deal. He really said Americans deserve that oil and he'll come here to build the pipeline. He needs to choose his words better and realize he is not entitled to anything that belongs to my country. I find he is acting in a way that some think Americans are, bullies and work their way into other countries to take oil.
