The Junkie-in-Chief is probably doing some blow and crack with his gay buddy, Larry Sinclair, right now.

"Several Chicago and Washington-based reporters are following up on claims by a man named Larry Sinclair, who says he used cocaine with Barack Obama in the late-1990s. Sinclair has released the following video backing up his claims, and he says the Obama campaign is trying to determine whether the allegations are in any way connected with the Hillary Clinton camp. Sinclair says they are not and that he is filing suit against Obama and David Axelrod, the senior advisor with the Obama campaign. Sinclair claims Axelrod has made personal threats against him."

Why won't Obama tell the truth, for a change?

"This searing candid story begins with Barack Obama meeting Larry Sinclair in November, 1999, and subsequently procuring and selling cocaine, and then engaging in consensual, homosexual sex with Sinclair on November 6th and again on November 7, 1999. You'll read in riveting detail how Sinclair, in 2007, repeatedly contacted and requested that the Obama campaign simply come clean..."

Many of the jobs created or saved through earlier efforts have now come to an end. Most of the public works projects, such as road repavings and bridge repairs, have been completed. Money given to states to keep teachers, fire fighters and police on the job has run out.

Here's my take on last night: Obama scored a few points for actually showing up to the debate. I'll give them both a draw for style even though Obama did have some help from Crowley.

Romney, however, took the debate on substance. The constant fact manipulation by Obama was as transparent as the windshield on my car. It won't wash with the majority of Americans. Only the Obamadopes will bob their heads and drool while listening to Bark's drivel.

Americans are realizing that four more years of Obamacrap is just going to leave them with even less take-home pay, higher fuel prices, less jobs (wasn't that the original theme of this thread?), higher health care costs, more regulations, etc., etc., etc. Meanwhile, Romney offers solid plans to turn things around. He is a businessman. He understands how businesses function and how they create jobs. He knows what is needed to get the business community to start working again. He's been there and done that. Romney offers real hope.

Bottom line, even though Obozo showed up, it isn't going to be enough to stop the rising tide which is washing away his base. Romney should continue to pull ahead. Blow-out in November, anyone?

My take on last night is that Obama with Crowley's help was able to score a draw with Romney.

That being said the big loser last night was CNN, they somehow try to paint themselves as the neutral voice in the cable media between the left leaning MSNBC and right leaning FOX, but after last night they just look like a poor man's MSNBC.

If I was the owner of CNN, I would look to phase out Crowley immediately and then fire her in order to try to save CNN's reputation, which frankly after last night is probably beyond saving.

CNN's market share will take a hit from this debacle, just seeing the comments on this board we know that people are getting sick and tired of the bias in the media.

FOX news will be the winner when all is said and done, as MSNBC and CNN will battle for the far left partisans, while every other cable viewer will be watching FOX.

Should Obama win, it will even be worse as angry citizens will blame CNN.

Either way Candy Crowley's reputation will be going the way Dan Rather's did after the Bush national guard piece.

The biggest edge for Romney here is that people see that the Obama campaign is basically about attacking Romney, indicating that they have no positive record to run on.

People are not happy seeing that in the midst of this economic crisis, that the president refuses to take responsibility for his actions and their contribution to our situation.

I think people would be more apt to vote for Obama if they heard him admit that he has made some mistakes which have contibuted to our situation, but that he has gained experience that may help him do things better in the future, rather then Obama attacking Romney as a rich and successful businessman.

Frankly, I am surprised that Romney did not point out that a big reason that he pays such a low tax rate is his tremendous charitable donations, which are far more then Obama and Biden combined.

I think these negative attacks are going to backfire, as they are just accentuating the lack of positive accomplishments of the Obama administration.

The problem is that Romney is too modest and humble to go around flaunting his benevolence. But you are right, Obama's platform is one of trying to define what his opponent is going to do vs. what he is going to do. Romney, on the other hand, has laid out a plan and as a successful businessman, he knows how to implement that plan.

Obama!!

Right Power!

Envisioning a pre-election hostage crisis,à la Iran and Jimmy Carter,[Romney said], "If something of that nature presents itself, I will work to find a way to take advantage of the opportunity.

Romney's shocking statement came after a fat cat in the audience specifically brought up how Ronald Reagan used the Iranian hostage crisis to his campaign's advantage.

It is important to remember that the 47 percent – and other – fundraiser remarks were before the tragic killings of the US Ambassador to Libya and other foreign service representatives.

Sure enough, once the murders occurred, Romney rashly held a press conference that incorrectly conflated the deaths with a prior US Cairo Embassy news release and cast blame on Obama. However, the Romney campaign backed off for awhile due to a general condemnation by the DC punditry, many leading Republicans, and the corporate media of his reckless remarks.

But then Romney, who has no foreign policy or military experience (he was a Mormon missionary in France for two years though and received a deferment), returned to accusing the White House of not providing enough security for the diplomats who were killed. This attack line started to have some resonance when State Department "traffic" indicated that one or more verbal requests had been made for increased protection in Tripoli, the capital of Libya.(Who said what to whom and when is still being sorted out.)

Fast forward to the debate on Tuesday night. Based on a question from an audience member named Kerry Ladka, President Obama took full responsibility for handling the Benghazi situation and responded in a dignified fashion that honored the loss of life in the line of duty.

Then three words set in motion the defining moment of the debate when Crowley offered Obama a brief chance to respond to Romney saying that the president began his term with "an apology tour" through the Middle East.

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."

you assume that journalists are held to some type of standard, they are not,

if a doctor did the equivalent of what Crowley did they would lose their license, if a lawyer did it, they would be disbarred,

if a journalist like Crowley loses her integrity by placing herself in the debate for Obama and spouting false information, as well as cutting off Romney at every opportunity, and giving Obama almost 10 per cent more time to speak then Romney, they will probably get an award.

the problem is that the days of journalistic integrity are long gone, and journalists today are partisan hacks who will twist the truth and frankly lie to push their political agenda.

they push their agenda by which stories they cover, they will misrepresent the facts, and as we saw last night they will actually put themselves into a presidential debate as an advocate of their political party if necessary.

journalists today unlike the past, have the lowest moral fiber of virtually anyone in the workforce.

that is why the corrupt mainstream media are charter members of the axis of evil.

Mitt The Flop Flip

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. Lead foreign policy adviser Rich Williamson claimed the attack wouldn’t have happened in a Romney administration and Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan chalked it up to the “broader problem” of the current administration “projecting weakness.”

But at least one prominent Republican would object to the GOP’s efforts to politicize terrorism and his name is Gov. Mitt Romney.

During a 2004 National Press Club luncheon, Romney was asked to address the 9/11 Commission’s finding of serious intelligence failures on the part of the US government in the run-up to the attacks. He responded that it is easy, but ultimately not particularly helpful, to blame different parts of the government for the attack:

It’s very easy, it is extraordinarily easy to point fingers and say,‘Why, this part of government knew this and it didn’t tell that part.’ And,‘These people here haven’t learned that.’ Well, the reason those barriers exist is for legitimate purpose in a world that was pre-September 11th. And judging our intelligence by post- September 11th conditions is something we have to do carefully. We do that to help us get better, and to the extent we find criticism in the kind of work that I’ve had to do and others are doing, it should be focused on how we can make ourselves more effective in the post-9/11 world. But trying to judge what happened pre-9/11 by post-9/11 knowledge is probably not terribly fruitful.

this says it all

"Obama invents his own history
Benghazi cover-up exposes president’s character flaws"

"Did we hear him correctly last night when he suddenly tried to “walk back” the version of events that his own spokesmen vigorously defended for weeks? So the attack on the Libyan consulate really had not resulted from a flash-mob incited by that YouTube video? Instead it had been a 9/11.2 terrorist attack all along? And this despite all those pious and repeated protestations by UN Ambassador Susan Rice, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Mr. Obama’s own speech to the United Nations extolling religious freedom? Then, in a scene straight out of Alice in Wonderland, CNN moderator Candy Crowley rode to his rescue, insisting to an astounded Gov. Romney that Mr. Obama’s recollection was indeed correct. So who are you going to believe: her or your lying eyes?"

"Our foreign policy is rapidly collapsing - and since we no longer have a free press, nobody says anything about it. Today the media is simply a polite term for Democrats on sabbatical - and with better clothes, hair and make-up."
