He took over his fathers billboard business at 24 and never had a real job. Not mention a nut job. Has more dumbass statements than Mel Gibson and Joe Biden combined.
"He also received attention when he asserted on PBS's Charlie Rose television program that if steps are not taken to address global warming, within 30 to 40 years "most of the people will have died and the rest of us will be cannibals." Turner also said in the interview that he advocated drastically cutting the U.S. military budget and Americans having no more than two children."
Real role model that Ted is.
None of this has anything to do with Arnold's point. Diversion is a trend for the weak.

So because Marylou says so, then fox reports it as if it is fact?
Now I am starting to see the problem with fox news. They can nail all their false claims on MaryLou.

Gee...Fox News. Now there is a reliable "Fair and Balanced" report to believe. No spin there. Did't they predict not only a Romney victory, but a Romeny landslide? There you go for you source, Enemy.
If you read the article, Fox news relied on the claim of MaryLuo. No need to check and make sure MaryLuo was correct, because it makes for good ratings.

So since Mitt didn't challenge Barry on the accusations in Benghazi then you assume the attack must've been because of a video. Got it!

Since I am the vile creature, why not take a trip back to mother Africa and see how well you venture?
Fish out of water is my bet, because there is no safety net when you have to rely on yourself or be responsible for your own actions and survival.
Democrats haven't figured that out. Why? Look at your demographics for the election.
First, I am pretty sure under Obama, you will get a tax cut, as I am sure you are not making over 250k per year. So all this bluster is for some rich guy that you are fighting for, not yourself. So quit acting as if it is you who is in the position of having his taxes raised.

We are well aware you have no concern for others who are on hard times. Your Jesus would be proud.

Nope, not anything I ever said. Good try and diverting so you did not have to give us evidence of your claim.
You guys are just a joke.

Actually Mitt did challenge Obama on Benghazi, so your diversion is even more stupid as it is just a lie.

Just in case you forgot, the subject was bailouts. Try to focus man.

Why don't you plead with your bosses to pack up and move out of the country? From what I understand from you, they are all republicans. So stop with the blustering and put up or shut up.

I'll take a swing at every in government or the private sector I can right now? Has FEMA fallen off the map helping those suffering from hurricane Sandy? Please somebody tell me what Ted Turner, Donald Trump, Barack Obama, Bloomeburg, Christie, Romney, the big Celebrity telethons or anyone is doing to help these people? The only people I've heard about giving relief are locals like us. Whether some like Franklin and Billy Graham's organization, they were some of the first to send relief, so take away their tax exempt status if you like, at least they're trying. As far as someone donating money abroad and them being a role model, I think it would be great if they'd start with their own country.
First, it is a fox news lie that FEMA has fallen off the map.
And according to Mitt, the federal government should not lift a damned finger to help. All the burden of help should be on Chris Christie,the state and private business.
You got a lot of nerve whining about something you wish did not exist.

Your team made a pack to make our economy fail so Obama would lose this election. Well they failed to accomplish their mission.
Your team is full of failures. Even when they try to hurt America to get into power, they fail.

<quoted text>Obama has been consistent. He may not have done all that he wanted to do, but that is not the same as changing positions as a platform.
If you guys cannot comprehend this, then prepare to make the same mistake that lost your team the white house this time, next time.
Example. You cannot say one moment, I want to reverse Roe V Wade, then the next moment say, I am not going to reverse Roe V Wade.
This is reversing on a major issue. You just cannot do that.
In regards to reversing positions you must be referring to someone else other than me. You also continue to group me in with one party though I have stated many time’s this is not the case. This continually shows your lack of comprehension. I am a registered independent and continue to vote for the person I think is best for the job regardless of party affiliation. Not a hard concept to grasp and understand for most.

Saying Obama has not done all that he has wanted but has not changed his position on the platform is cop out statement.
Obama and the Democratic Party controlled congress for the first two years. Obama could have put in motion many positive things (by his beliefs) but instead pushed his healthcare agenda and dismissed many of the campaign promises he himself pledged to the American people that as President he would address. You say he may not have done all he wanted, but what president has ever completed a term feeling like they have done all they could?

Here is a very short list of promises Obama made that he didn’t even begin to address when he and his party had total control. These are promises that could have helped the very people that continue to vote for him.

Increase the capital gains and dividends taxes for higher-income taxpayers.
Expand the child and dependent care credit.
Create a foreclosure prevention fund for homeowners.
Create a mortgage interest tax credit for non-itemizers.
Require automatic enrollment in 401(k) plans.
Require automatic enrollment in IRA plans.
Create a retirement savings tax credit for low incomes.
End income tax for seniors making less than $50,000.
End no-bid contracts above $25,000.
Create a $60 billion bank to fund roads and bridges.
Repeal the Bush tax cuts for higher incomes.
Phase out exemptions and deductions for higher earners.
Sign the Employee Free Choice Act, making it easier for workers to unionize.
Lift the payroll tax cap on earnings above $250,000.
Forbid companies in bankruptcy from giving executives bonuses.
Allow imported prescription drugs.
Prevent drug companies from blocking generic drugs.
Allow Medicare to negotiate for cheaper drug prices.
Double federal funding for cancer research.

And the actual list is so much larger……..just another case of a politician saying what he needed to say to guarantee a vote.

and "act of terror" really means “acts of terrorism against America” as long as it is said from the Rose garden at the White House and the statement is vague and non-committal

Dispropotionate voting districts or entitlement prone areas?
It is due to population. I suppose your bias discounted the fact those in the city are doing much intellectual work.
Many in rural areas are also on government assistance, believe it or not.

There are plenty of examples to choose from, just pick one and research.
Take anything to the extreme and it will be a problem. The socialism in America is small.
What the right leaning posters here wish for is extreme. You do not see us on the left wanting extreme socialism.

You, and Barry, need to learn the english language. In most cases, when you take a word that is singular and you make it plural, it changes the meaning of the word.
Example:
Colony- singular, one
Colonies- plural, more than one
You are another fine example of how govt education is dumbing down Americans!

Run from the arguments and divert?

I just gave you a list of broken promises that Obama should have addressed to help the very people that continue to vote him in. I stated how Obama instead pushed a healthcare agenda that the majority of Americans want no part of. It was you who stated that Obama “may not have done all that he wanted”, it was I that said he did none of the things he stated he would do to help the poor or middle class.

I ran from nothing. You gave no statements that support Obama indeed put things in place to help the poor and middle class help themselves. I am not speaking of a HANDOUT but a hand-up!

Name the policies that Obama and his administration has put in place that are now effectively helping the poor better help themselves?
