I edit the political, cultural, and literary magazine Construction. We have excellent Election 2012 coverage, and this week, of course, is Paul Ryan week. Our most recent piece was about whether or not Romeny chose Ryan the thinker or Ryan the politician. Link here:

Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan were automatically out from the beginning for me. It is true that a lot people in the Obama administration are pro sucking money from Uncle Sam but I thought from the very first moment Obama is the best choice then Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. If there was something better I would go for it but this is all there is so I am with Obama or I should say stuck.So yes, I am with Obama with the hope that Obama will replace his current administration for something better. Less legal corruption would help the rest of us a lot.
Oh! oh! ho! and anyone remembers Mitt Romney saying that if he was president he would bomb Iran? I mean who wants a war right now? And as far as I know usually when America goes to war the rich don’t pay for the spending even they were the ones who push for it.  And what is eve crazier is that he is supposedly a religious individual who believe in good and rejects evil and yet he sounds as if he doesn’t live in America or as if he is not in the real world.
Oh and Timothy Franz Geithner also should go.

If Mitt Romney’s refusal to provide more tax returns as requested by Obama’ campaign but not required, by law, proves that Mitt Romney must be hiding something, what does Eric Holder’s refusal to provide documents relating to the Fast and Furious fiasco and which have been subpoenaed and required by congress prove? PLEASE GIVE ME A BREAK!!!!
