Here’s the nervous Romney chuckle at 2:32, that he characteristically emits whenever answering a question, as is the case here:


Remember the gay bashing incident? This clip is Rachael Maddow reporting on Mitt’s gay bashing pranks, which he mysteriously just can’t recall no matter how hard he tries. Of course, Ann did say he was a barrel of fun in real life. I also wonder if he recalls his state trooper uniform fetish and related police impersonator patrolling while his father was governor. Talk about Kodak moments!

I’m guessing he’d also be a real cut-up in the White House. He might get to dress up in a real U.S. Army uniform.

Some of the protests in the Middle East are protesting the drones in the general discontent with US policies. According to one foreign press source Libya was retaliation of a drone attack.
But our President said it was just the natural and spontaneous response of an angry Muslim crowd:}

Egypt's new fat-boy Muslim says "the United States needed to fundamentally change its approach to the Arab world, showing greater respect for its values and helping build a Palestinian state, if it hoped to overcome decades of pent-up anger."

That is a myth.
The recession was officially over in June 2009
The stimulus bill did not create the jobs it claimed to be able to-"I guess there wasn't that many shovel ready jobs" -OBama
Cash for clunkers -green energy program. Little help to economy
Green Energy funding -with promises of new jobs. A giant sink hole of taxpayers money.
GM -another taxpayer sink hole of a billion. I was reading earlier that the best thing that could happen to GM is for the government to sale off our shares and get out of the way
Bank bailouts -still up for debate. It will probably take a new generation to evaluate the true effects of the program. It was a couple weeks ago that a couple economics took a hard look at FDR's policies during the Depression and announced that his policies extended the recession by 7 years.
Recessions will self correct. Frequently government interference may prolong or make worse the situation.
The official recession ended when Obama brought us back to a growing economy.

Unemployment is a delayed side effect of a recession that can take significant time to recover.

Everyone knows this except evidently you.

Looking Ahead to the Presidential Debates

....As the challenger in the general election, Romney faces one challenge in demonstrating that he’s qualified for the Presidency, and he won’t be able to do that simply by checking off the appropriate ideological boxes. As the candidate consistently behind in the race, he cannot afford to wait for his opponent to make a major mistake. The debates represent his best opportunities to change the story from one of a flailing, incompetent campaign that we’ve been seeing for the last few weeks, which will require him to go on the attack. As Romney has shown at different times this year, his attacks on Obama tend not to work very well because what he believes to be a clever rebuke to the incumbent is often enough just a self-discrediting blunder. Some of the statements that have been enormous gifts to the Obama campaign have come from Romney attack lines that the Republican nominee used when trying to exploit what he perceived as a huge opening. Romney’s tendency to overreach keeps coming back to haunt him, and he will have to avoid doing this if he doesn’t want to give Obama more easy targets.

A potential pitfall for Romney is that he consistently trails in the polls on both traits and issues. The recent Pew survey offered the most stark example of this, but it is a pattern that is repeated in all the national polls. According to Pew, he isn’t liked or trusted as much as Obama, and the only issue where he leads Obama is on handling the deficit, and even there his edge is very small. The point is that Romney might deliver a given attack line against Obama very effectively on Medicare or the economy, for example, but unless he can show how he would be better able to handle the issue he is unlikely to make inroads with many persuadable voters.

http://www.theamericanconservative.com/lariso...

.... the pressure will be on for Romney to prevail in the first debate, which is dedicated entirely to domestic issues. These are the issues where Romney is most competitive, and they are the ones that are also of far greater importance to almost all voters. That is Romney’s best chance to make a favorable impression on the voters that have not yet committed to a candidate, and it is probably the one debate where he is least likely to make a fool of himself. The subsequent debates will be partly or entirely focused on foreign policy, at which point the hill becomes much steeper for Romney and the potential for major mistakes increases dramatically.

That's why AARP was for it.
First and let's be CLEAR about this AARP is not an nonpartisan organization. They work directly with the Obama campaign.

SECOND -what AARP was wanting was restrictions placed on the Advantage program so they could offer a similar one of their own that would not fall under the same guidelines. They were money grubbing.

Yeah, all the drug dealers and bank robbers, and every other trashy azz person just let him have all their money and made that man rich.

By your lame azz remark here, I would say you haven't achived anything in life on your own either.

We ALL don't get somewhere in life without some help, you dumbazz. i mean most all parents help their kids through College.

Don't be jealous that Romney has a good head on his shoulders and did very well for himself.

One thing is for sure, Romeny was born in the USA, and will do a much better job being President than your man, that can't find his butt with both hands.

No, it won't. Nothing in Obamacare secured Medicare or Social Security from becoming unendowed in the next decade.
Paul Ryan said there was nothing o worry about with SS.

Obama saved 716 billion from Medicare.

The Ryan/Romney plan does nothing on Medicare for 11 years if it would pass. Then it would phase in very slowly as those 54 would retire.

The recession ended when it has ran it's coarse. I listed several things that did not help and probably has harmed the recovery that OBama did. The recovery has been stagnant for over two years.
