Romney will negotiate a peace treaty between Israel & the lower cultured Palestinians.
Romney, after all his bluster how he'd fix those Iranians, will rely on sanctions.. Copying the Obama plan.
I thought there were clear differences. Clearly the only difference is what Romney said last week & what he aid this week.
The main difference is Romney loves the USA and Obama despises it.

Now Big Bird's taking center stage. What better indicator of Obama's state of affairs could there be? The economy? NO. The death of our Ambassador? NO. The cooked unemployment numbers? NO. Obama's face plant at the debate? NO. It's Big Bird!!!!
i guess they didn't get the memo that Big Bird is an evil 1%er.

Kill Big Bird?

Why the hell not?

Team Obama, desperate to salvage something from Wednesday’s debate debacle, seized on Mitt Romney’s call to end PBS’ taxpayer subsidy.

It was — horrors!— a gaffe.

Nonsense.

“I like PBS,” Romney said.“I love Big Bird. But I’m not going to ... borrow money from China to pay for [it.]”

Gaffe? No way.

Romney’s not out to drive Big Bird off the air. He just doesn’t think that he rates a Washington subsidy — and he’s not alone.

President Obama’s own Simpson-Bowles deficit-reduction commission calls for ending PBS’ subsidy — some $280 million — outright. And for good reason.

Big BirdPBS is now home to numerous lucrative franchises — with “Sesame Street” the most successful, having earned $211 million in merchandising sales from 2003 to 2006.

Indeed, Sesame Workshop’s total assets at the end of last year stood at more than $411 million — and its CEO is paid nearly $1 million a year.

Which certainly makes Big Bird a 1-percenter, earning far more than Mitt Romney — and paying far less in taxes, to boot.

Now, when the Corporation for Public Broadcasing was set up, there was little in the way of educational TV; indeed, all broadcast options were limited.

That’s hardly true in the Information Age, where education outlets are limitless — and well-funded.

PBS contends that Romney “does not understand the value that the American people place on public broadcasting.”

Actually, he does — which is why he figures they’ll voluntarily support it through charitable donations, as many do.

(And by the way, the Obama White House yesterday refused to say if it will preserve tax deductions for all those contributions to “your local PBS station.”)

Big Bird, in short, is doing just fine. But in an era of a $16 trillion-plus national debt, he can pay his own way.'

This is all we need to know about Obama supporters:

Actress Stacey Dash, who has starred in everything from the 90&#8242;s hit Clueless to CSI, prompted a firestorm on Twitter after publicly endorsing Republican nominee Mitt Romney, and then standing by her opinion.

“Vote for Romney. The only choice for your future.@mittromney @teamromney #mittromney #VOTE #voteromney,” Dash wrote on her official Twitter page, accompanied by a photo of herself with an American flag.

Not long after, presumed Obama supporters began insulting Dash for her opinion, saying she isn’t “black” enough, several even asking if the actress would just “kill herself.”

I never understood that. It's wealth redistribution. That's all it is. Nothing else changes. A heavy polluter buys credits from a polluter that is a low polluter. Most are in the third world. This is how it works. There is no decrease in polluting. In fact it's main function is to keep third world countries third world by not allowing them to increase their energy output that's not wind/solar.
