Romney, Obama, and Voters: It's Complicated

•, By David Corn

Barack Obama is ahead in the polls. Then Mitt Romney is. The president is leading among women. Then the likely Republican nominee is. Romney's favorable rating is in the dumps. Presto! It's above water. The volatility of the 2012 presidential race is a boon for pollsters and pundits, who every day, it seems, have new data to dissect and a new shift to explain.

The reasons for the movement in the polls can seem obvious. With Romney no longer being sniped at daily by fellow Republicans—and with him keeping his distance from reporters and no longer appearing at crazy-town debates—it's no surprise his favorability numbers have crept upward.

Ron Paul Money Bomb Update: Total Donated Thus Far: $830,000.00 – since Thursday, May 17th. There is still time, to contribute to Ron Paul’s Campaign to Restore America Now.

Ron Paul Liberty Quote:

“America was founded by men who understood that the threat of domestic tyranny is as great as any threat from abroad. If we want to be worthy of their legacy, we must resist the rush toward ever-increasing state control of our society. Otherwise, our own government will become a greater threat to our freedoms than any foreign terrorist.”
—Ron Paul

Ok, everybody – IF you did NOTHING to support Ron Paul, in his Campaign for President, in 2012 – YOU MAY EFFECTIVELY THANK YOURSELVES FOR ANOTHER 4 YEARS!, OF THE INCREASINGLY CORRUPT STATUS QUO, ENDLESS ‘MONEY’-PRINTING [THEFT VIA INFLATION], ENDLESS WARS, AND ATTENDANT LOSS OF LIBERTY – NOT TO MENTION – FOUR MORE YEARS! OF OBAMNEY! I’ve already donated $300.00 – $100.00 on President’s Day – Feb. 20th, $100.00, on Tax Day – April 15th – & $100.00 on May 20th. So, if you’ve done more than that, by volunteering, or donating FIAT CURRENCY – THANK YOU! IF you haven’t – then, RE-READ THE ABOVE. I will be making another donation [of $177.60?] on JULY 4TH, 2012. [$830,000.00 in FIVE! Days! I honestly REALLY, REALLY thought Americans cared more about FREEDOM, than THAT! Heck, RP has received over $1 Million, in ONE day, previously...]

'COMPLICATED'?  NO!  It's NOT complicated! 

Let me spell it out for you:  GW Bush = Obama = Romney.  All three serve the same Wall St. Banks and other Corporate/Military-Prison-Industrial-Pharmaceutical-Complex Interests.
