Nice ones Merc.

Yeah, I don't think any Obama supporters want to get into a Gaff war between the candidates.  If we do though, can we throw Biden into the mix too?

There are so many Obama gaffes that it is, frankly, embarrassing.  Worse, some of his gaffes are downright scary and show the true inner Barry which isn't pretty.  His recent urging to people booing Romney's name to not boo, but that "voting is the best revenge." Revenge for what and against who?  It is against the truly successful whom Barry believes stole their money from the poor, although how that works I don't know.  Then there is the now infamous "You didn't build that!" gaffe that cost him so dearly in the polls.

What about this gaffe?
When told that Two Brazilian soldiers had been killed in Afghanastan, President Obama put his head down briefly on his desk, then raised his head and asked, "How many is a brazzilion?"

Okay, that's a joke not a gaffe...funny though, eh?

I remember hating G-dubs as much as you guys hate Obama.  Makes me wanna give y'all hugs.  Whatever happens tuesday - we're all screwed either way. Well unless you have lots of money.  That'll insulate you for a good long while, but eventually - you'll be screwed too.

Romney is only as clueless as the republican party, who are equally clueless as the democrats.   Just in different ways.  Obama isn't going to fix things in a second term either.  I am curious to see who wins the election.  Rest assured though - it won't be the American people - any way you slice it.

the problem with comparing "Gaffes" is that what Romney said was not.
