53% of Americans no longer have dinner seated at an ironing board. Some still eat tuna fish.

Margaret, I canít understand why Mitt is behind in the polls. Just think of the millions of jobs that he has created with his wealth. Oodles and oodles of them. Why, the Staples story alone should have put this election away weeks ago.

In 1986, Mitt Romney and Bain provided $4.5 million to two supermarket executives, Leo Kahn and Thomas G. Stemberg, to open an office supply supermarket. That retail chain called Staples went public in 1989 and by 1996, the company had grown to over 1,100 stores, and by 2008, over 2,000 stores. Bain Capital eventually reaped a nearly sevenfold return on its investment, and Romney sat on the Staples board of directors for over a decade. Rumor has it, he hasnít eaten dinner at an ironing board since.

Well thatís impressive if you ask me. Why wouldnít we all line up to vote for that man? All that hard work keeping our economy strong deserves a good Ďole fashion tax cut and a trip to the Oval Office. Whatís the problem? Itís all simple math. Create jobs. Get a tax cut. Use your tax cut to create more jobs. The Republican way.

2. It's what you eat dinner on...

...while you're waiting for your broker to sell some shares so you can afford a dining room table.
