Hey dumbffffck!
What planet you been living on? Not earth.
President Obama:
Turned around a failing country Republicans nearly destroyed!
Dow back at highs?
Housing recovering nicely?
Positive job growth the whole term.
(Bush/Cheney Republicans lost 8 million jobs! While borrowing $5 trillion!)
President Obama: bin laden dead! USA out of Iraq!
Who failed who?
Mitt Romney lied in front of 72 million!
Leaves 36 million citizens without access to health insurance!
Cuts them off? How Republican of you Mitt Mitt POS!!!
Stopped reading at the second word of your post. Represents the amount of brain power you obiously place in making your decisions. You do yourself no favors by being able to rival a junior high potty mouth. I don't care what their political views are either for the same reasons.

You tea bag dks said Romney was winning
Mitt Romney gained further ground in a Fox News forecast on Monday, with his chances of winning the Electoral College increasing to 25.2 percent from 21.6 percent on Sunday.
Not bad!
I do think that means Obama has 74.8% chance of winning.
A bounce from one debate puts them all spinning out into euphoria. Can't blame em, it's the first marginally positive thing they have. Won't last long. Let em enjoy it.

You don't think Mormons need help and their church provides it? Instead of the government?
This country would be a heck of a lot better off if every single American gave regularly to a local church's benevolence fund or donated food to a religious or community organizations' food pantry for the needy.
Those donations would not be wasted and would be put into the right hands for the right reasons.
It would solve the problem of caring for the poor. Not a disguise to get votes and stay in power.
Funnelling upwards of $20 million to influence another states ballot initiative is political activism, not charity.

The right's target is PBR which it considers the "enemy" and to a lesser degree PBS which is much less political.

The "Big Bird" comment was unnecessary, stupid really as it was only one more case of moderate Mitt pandering to the right.

Beautiful post, Miss Carol? Let Planned Parenthood grovel for funds. We would see just how long they would stay in business...

When YOU call for the repeal of Obamacare, you want to increase the cost of healthcare & health insurance, increase the uninsured by 30 million.
And really, whining about paying to support your government?
You have a choice in education. Don't expect me to pay for your choice.
The problem with your statement is this.

Obamacare has NOT reduced the cost of healthare or health insurance. Obamacare has increased the cost of healthcare and health insurance.

There are many better alternatives to providing healthcare for 30 million uninsured than by stealing 751 Billion in funds supposed to be dedicated to elderly citizens who have paid for these benefits in advance.

I don't know if you have ever read the affordable healthcare act in part or in whole.The legislators who passed it into law didn't. The government controls over how medicine is practiced and even who qualifies for treatment is controlled firectly by the government under the provisions of this law.

A senior citizen aged 80 stands a much less chance of having open heart surgery performed than does a 28 year old citizen. The reason according to the guildelines in the bill.

These are pretty dramatic changes to buy healthcare for illegal immigrants in my opinion. I especially don't like stealing money from old peoples benefits to provide healthcarte for illegal aliens.

Hey, how long are you going to keep building that gold pyramid in your backyard? Going on 4 years now, your car is 10 years old, your 40 year old furnace is polluting the entire neighborhood is is terribly inefficient, your 50 year old concrete pool keeps filling up my driveway, your washer and dryer sound like a rock band and your shed just fell over again. Why not spend some of that gold on these things, help spur the economy and put American back to work?

Listen Jean. This really is simple. I said you are now calling his performance a strategy. I was talking about his performance. He sucked. Whatever his strategy was, he failed miserably. It's really not that hard to understand.
