israelnationalnews.com They call him Cool Barry and No Drama Obama, but President Barack Obama appears to be losing his nerve in the final fortnight of the race for his second term.

Obama is quoted in an interview for Rolling Stone using the expression "bull****ter" regarding his opponent, Mitt Romney.

In the interview, presidential historian Douglas Brinkley recorded a conversation between Obama and Eric Bates, the executive editor of Rolling Stone. Bates told Obama that he had asked his six-year-old daughter if she had a message for the president, and she said: "Tell him: you can do it."

Obama then replied with a grin: "You know, kids have good instincts. They look at the other guy and say,'Well, that's a bull****ter, I can tell'.

Asked to explain Obama's remark, spokesman Dan Pfeiffer told reporters that he hadn't seen the article. However, he went on to say: "Trust is a very important part of the election. The president is someone who says what he means and does what he says, and Governor Romney's answers in the debates on domestic issues and foreign policy raise real questions about that."

Civility in any presidential contest is expected, but it is probably more important in this one, because of the race factor. Uncivil language by Romney toward Obama would probably immediately be viewed as a evidence of racism, but by the same token, uncivil language by Obama could cause resentment among white supporters, and also play into the hands of people who oppose him for the wrong reasons.

Been there , done that. My employees enjoy the same benefits I have enjoyed. With only a few individual exceptions over years, they have been most productive and diligent because they share in profits and know their efforts will be rewarded. They trust me and I trust them. There have been times when I continued to pay them even though I was at times revenue neutral or in some few times even losing money. The employees are the most valuable asset because they produce what I am selling. I cannot provide all the benefits you list and remain profitable, but if I get it, so do they.

Well, since you are self proclaimed millionaire, why don't you do your part, create some jobs for those with no/low income, give them benefits (i.e. health care HMO's or PPO's, retirement planning, vision, dental,flex spending, accidental death and dismemberment) and share your wealth first?
Then we will follow your lead after seeing if your venture works first, ok?

The contrast was striking.
I see you now think you know the motivations of someone you never meet. Your post is about as biased as they come.
To accuse Powell of endorsing Obama due to race is an extreme charge. That is why it was so outrageous for Sununu to say it. That is why he retracted it. But of course you can be extreme here, as you are not running for office. But be sure we will judge your comments.
What you said is very demeaning to Colin Powell's integrity.
Yes Obama was before the war in Iraq before he decided as POTUS to carry the war over to Afghanistan. I guess he was against war before he was for it.

As far as being judged a racist by whomever "we" is on here and that very well may be you and that mouse in your pocket, I don't care. I said what I said and I stand by it. If you don't like it, in your words "too damned bad."

I noticed you nor the bleeding hearts on here didn't respond to this article. Could it be, this type of abuse happens by more than only "some"? You get on here and whine about how the children suffer if entitlements benefits are cut. Do children really need liquor from the liquor store, cigarettes, the need to gamble and go on cruises? This was only in ONE state, what about the other 49 states? Think about how much money is pissed away on abuse by "some" in the system if you would add abuse by the other 49 states.

This bleeding heart liberal is more concerned about the $1.3 trillion taken from the treasury by the deadbeat rich each year.
If undeserving deadbeat poor scammers comprise even 10% of the total 0.8 trillion cost of all social programs combined, the rich deadbeat scammers are taking 1625% more money out of the US treasury each year than the poor.
But myopic republikans cannot see the huge amounts taken by the rich because the rich are vacationing in the Caymans on your dime. Meanwhile , you piss and moan about 1/16 th that amount taken by the getto thugs and baby mommas . If you are really concerned about theft from the treasury, you would focus on the real theives, the deadbeat rich. YOu focus on the poor because you buy the horse shit fed to you by the beckerheads..

Republicans are the people who advocated terrorists as the greatest of all threats to our natiion during the Bush years. Now that Obama continues the war to fight terrorists, I guess it is not as important an issue to you guys anymore. Do you think Obama knows the situation in Afghanistan better than you or I and makes decisions based on that information? As for me personally, I would love to see us out of there.

Wonder why Mitt Romney insists on not raising taxes on the wealthy, claiming they are the job producers.....Yet, after 11 years of lowered taxes, it is clear that they have not produced, even close to the amount of jobs necessary to sustain America.....When cornered on this false promise, Romney and his fellow republicans point to President Obama yelling, it's all his fault.....

TSF, I don't what your occupation is, therefore I can't speak to what you see that's wrong or right about your occupation. I don't piss and moan because of horse shit fed to my by beckerheads, I worked and saw it first hand for quite a few years. I would give you one month working at a DSS to see how your money is pissed away and then you may have a somewhat different perspective about entitlements. I can't speak to the extremely wealthy, how they make their money, invest their money or what they do with it, but at least they're working and paying for their lifestyle. They don't make the tax laws, so why go off on people that are using the laws provided by the government? Abuse of welfare is not legal, unfortunately for your argument, tax loopholes are. I have a question to ask you, is making the rich pay more in taxes going to make abuse of entitlement programs change? TSF, I guess you read the article I posted, this is the mindset of people living off somebody else's dollar, do you find this ok? Two wrongs don't make a right. Have you ever thought the rich, per you, that don't pay enough taxes may actually have businesses that would employ those on welfare and help them? Would you not agree both the taxation of the rich which you have a problem with and the abuse of welfare I have a problem with both need an overhaul?

Arnold, at one time I thought Obama knew about foreign policy but after Libya, no. When he can stand and watch an American diplomat and 3 other Americans be killed and has the drone footage to prove it and doesn't make a call for back-up, he doesn't know jack IMO. He supposedly saw the events unfold and so did his foreign policy advisors and their best plan was to do nothing? Excuse me, could these be the same advisors that told GW about the WMD's?

I would love to see us out of there too.

I have seen some of the entitlement cheats who steal thousands from our treasury. That does not please me in any way nor is there an excuse for them. But for our society to focus on the poor while letting a few rich steal billions, and do 16 times as much damage to our financial existence just does not make sense. The "job creator" myth is exactly the horse shit to which I am referring. I employ people because they have the ability to help me make money by doing work that I do not have time to get done, no other reason. It certainly isn't because I am a benevolent "job creator" and any employer who claims otherwise is being deceptive.
My question is why you would support massive socialism for the rich but vehemently oppose a much smaller program for the poor.
I do not want to soak the rich, just make them pay the same percentage of income as I do.

Just trying to remind you. With the distortion of time lines, I thought you were suffering from a Romnesia attack.. Seems to be a lot of that going around these days.. When Romney was running for governor of Mass, he became a left wing liberal but when elected , he became a moderate, but when speaking to TP , he was a right wing nut "severely" conservative, but in the last debate he was again moderate. Who is Mitt Romney? I would like to see a debate between Romney the conservative and Romney the moderate.,
