Obama returned to the bloodshed in Benghazi. In his brief remark, he included these words: "The day after the attack, Governor, I stood in the Rose Garden, and I told the American people and the world that we are going to find out exactly what happened, that this was an act of terror."
What Obama meant to say was, "The day after the attack, Governor, I stood in the Rose Garden, and I LIED MY ASS OFF to the American people and the world ...," but his pathalogical lying gene wouldn't allow him to tell the truth.

The Romney campaign has been hard at work attempting to blame President Obama for the terrorist attack that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.(rest of plagiarized cut-n-paste rubbish snipped)
Both Obama and Hillary have publicly stated they take full responsibility for Benghazim numnuts. No 'hard work' by the Romney campaign required at all.

The fact is Romney's a Mormon - he's required to cough up 10% of his income - every year. Generosity has nothing to do with it. As a matter of fact, many have said that he's not releasing his tax returns because he under tithed to the church - for years.
Yes, Romney's a Mormon - VOLUNTARILY, you ass. His personal philanthropy is totally and completely his own free and voluntary act of generaosity as well.

hard to believe, but CNN's managing editor feels that Crowley did a good job.

http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2012/10/18/cnn...

so much for journalistic integrity, journalists in terms of respect are now at the bottom of the list for professions,
after loan-sharks, bank robbers, and thieves.

and CNN is now at the bottom of the list in regards to journalism on cable far below even msnbc.

"Media bias is more often sensed than seen, but America got its faced rubbed in it Tuesday night — by debate “moderator” Candy Crowley."

http://newyorkpost.com/p/news/opinion/editori...

this doesn't even go nearly far enough, the corrupt mainstream media are personally responsible for the millions of Americans who are unemployed and the trillions of dollars we are in debt because it is their extreme bias that led to Obama being elected in the first place,

in their extreme bias they substitute their flawed judgement for the judgement of the American people, and in doing that they jeopardize our democratic republic.

hopefully this time we will all see through the bias and propaganda, and vote to save our children's future.

His personal philanthropy? his generosity? Why you sound just like the right wing hacks who are paid by the RNC. You wouldn't be on the payroll would you? Aszole.

Of the states that voted Republican in the last 3 elections, all but one gets more money back from the federal government than it pays in taxes.

For most Democratic states, it’s the opposite.

Looked at this way, the red states (Republican) are the moochers and the blue states are the makers.

Blah, blah, blah. You guys come to the show but don't know how to play. You made the claim, provide the link. Looking forward to "The Plan."
The other 20%? Would that be in this years return or all of his returns. The ones we're all going to have to "just trust him" on. Just in case you haven't noticed, I don't trust Republicans. They lie way too frequently and easily.
Did you look it up yet, joe? I didn't think so because you want to be spoon fed which is why you are such an ardent Obamatron. You want everything handed to you on a platter instead of going out and working for it. You know, like your Obama-phone. By the way, how is that Obama-gas working out for you? You know, that gas that costs twice as much at the pump than what it was four years ago?

Republicans lie way too frequently? You mean they say things like, "I did not have sexual relations with that woman" or "It was a spontaneous act of violence because of a movie" or "I will cut the deficit in half?" Romney is a good man. He is very generous with his money. I've met him. I've talked to him. I've worked with him during the Olympics. He didn't take a salary for the Olympics work he did nor for his time as Governor of Massachusetts. I'm willing to bet he won't take the $400,000 salary that comes with the office of POTUS either. Being charitable is when you give of yourself willingly, not when the government forcefully takes it from you to give to someone else.

It's going to be great to have some integrity returned to the White House.
