The Finland fluker accuses President Romney of which the Kenyan is most guilty. Projection is a mental defect that allows the Kenyan communist to lie without conscience.

Stunner: PolitiFact Florida Rules Latest Wasserman-Schultz Claim False

Our colleagues at Factcheck.org looked at this in July and found that since 1980, only two general election candidates have revealed no more than two years of tax returns. One was Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., in 2008 and the other is Romney, who released his 2010 tax return and an estimate of 2011.

When we contacted the DNC about this fact-check, they sent us a statement saying that Romney should release more of his tax returns. What they didn’t provide was evidence to support Wasserman Schultz’s claim.

Our ruling

Wasserman Schultz said:“Mitt Romney is the first major party candidate for president of the United States in modern times not to release at least 12 years of tax returns.”

There are several examples of major party candidates for president in modern times who released fewer than 12 tax returns. And those examples have been highlighted in recent news articles. Wasserman Schultz’s claim is not correct, and we rate the statement False.

You have it all backwards. President Obama panders to one segment of the population and demonizes the other. He has done what was expected of him on terror to his credit but is not Commander-in-Chief material.
His two proposed budgets increased the deficit by so much that even Senate democrats rejected both of them unanimously.
What is right for America is a growing economy, not expanding welfare.

FDIC: Right wingers said "this thing will kill banking, business is doomed!

Social security: Right wingers said "this will doom business in these United States!

Medicare: Right wingers said: "this is healthcare rationing and death panels......this will be the United States end!

ACA: Right wingers: "socialism! We can't do it, let them die in the streets!

USA is not socialist, but has very popular social programs. Try and take them away! YOU LOSE!

No ACA? But in the USA we never turn away an injured person from the ER? <----- that is a socialist policy! Unfunded! WHO PAYS FOR THAT? ACA SOLVES THAT!

Mitt says let that injured soul die in the streets. We can't afford it!

Mitt! Never speak for me! You greedy azzzzzhole!

This president has also avoided press conferences and taking questions from the press like every president has done for decades. Even the liberal media is complaining about his interviews with People and Entertainment Tonight and answering only "softball" questions.
When his own cheerleaders start complaining about being snubbed...not a good sign.

You right wing nuts will not concede the simple FACT that while Obama was president law was changed so that we can now conceal carry in national parks.
Frank has pointed out that there are regulations, yes you can't shoot tame buffalo or endangered species. And Nobama wants to substitute national forrest for national park!
If any of you lemmings can read then look at the site below and post your concession that yes people here in Michigan can carry weapons in Sleeping Bear National "Park" and discharge those weapons.

Let's just compare and contrast Romney and Obama.

Romney bought an investment house. It turned out to be a bad investment because housing values soon dropped. The people who lived in the house couldn't qualify to buy it. So, Romney personally lent them the money to buy the house and they were able to stay in it. They've been paying him their mortgage payment for 15 years now. Romney helped them when they needed it.

One of Romney's friends was missing from a Mormon meeting. He went to the man's house and found out he had fallen and broken his leg while trying to get rid of a hornet's nest. Romney returned later that night to get rid of the hornet's nest.

Romney helped negotiate a financial problem for a church family and helped the wife find a job.

Romney's neighbor lost a son, Joey, to cystic fibrosis. Romney lead a community effort to build Joey's Park and later worked on repairing the park.

Obama talks a lot. He has said "we are our brother's keeper", yet his own brother George lives in poverty in Kenya. Obama has not sent even one dime but said George should apply for USAID. In other words, the government in our brother's keeper.

For liberals, as Roger Kimball says, "I’ve long known that abstract benevolence, a specialty of liberals, was eerily compatible with practical indifference or even cruelty."

It gets even better! George Obama, Barack's brother, recently called "one of the biggest right-wing douchebags of our nation today“, Dinesh D’Souza, for help when his son needed $1000 of medical treatment. D'Souza helped him out.

Why didn't George call brother Obama? He said,“I have no one else to ask.” Then he said something that astounded me,“Dinesh, you are like a brother to me.”

Actually Carol in his first three years in office Obama has had more press conferences than his predecessor; 17 vs. 11. In that time he's also given 408 sit down interviews with journalists.
So what's your point?
ABC News - When the White House spokesman, Gibbs, asked the press corps for a show of hands and who wanted a news conference, Gibbs got unanimous agreement from the press corps: Bring on the president.

The impression a lot of people are getting is the president is trying to insulate himself from defending his own policies.

LMFAO... Dems have lost everything since 2010...

THEIR APPEAL HAS BECOME MORE SELECTIVE: Obama camp – We are intentionally limiting crowd size at rallies.

LOOKS LIKE OBAMA HAS LOST THE REAGAN DEMOCRATS. Look at the photo.

OldRaider is correct - it is legal and no problem, as long as you follow the rules.
What OldRaider doesn't get is that like In the U.K., he would have to remove the pins from his guns if the left/Socialist Democrats he supports had their way here. He wouldn't be hunting unless he used a slingshot.
Liberalsism is a mental disorder. OldRaider, the Speelling Police Dufus has a sever case of the liberal stupids.
This NRA scare tactic is what drove prices of guns and ammo up. All this slippery slope bullshit does is feed the coffers of wealthy sponsors to the NRA. These same lies were spread before Obama was elected in 2008 and now here we are four years later and not one of you gun owners can name ONE gun right that YOU PERSONALLY lost during his tenure.
Your cluelessness is breathtaking.
