Countdown to the Vice President candidate debate...
Only one more day!
Will Biden really attack Ryan like a cannon?
Will Ryan finally come clean about how his and Romney’s economy plan will work?
the debate will be a contrast between a sharp, young budget expert and a back-slapping old pol.....should be fun.....

if Biden gets too tough, it will give Ryan a reason to blow Biden out of the water without looking cruel to an old fart....

attack on the US Consulate in Benghazi, Libya that killed American Ambassador John Christopher Stevens (1960-2012) was an act of terrorism led by an armed force of mercenaries linked to the shadowy Italian eco-terror group known as Il Silvestre.

According to this report, the information linking Il Silvestre to this deadly attack was obtained by Turkish intelligence officials this past week after they detained two of the eco-terrorists involved in the attack who were using Tunisian passports and traveling back to Italy after leaving Libya.

Founded in 1998, Il Silvestre is one of the most feared eco-terror groups in the world who in 2010 were stopped by Swiss police forces from blowing up the site of the £55 million nano-technology headquarters of IBM in Europe located in Rueschlikon, near Zurich.

Il Silvestre, according to this report, had targeted this IBM headquarters facility in Switzerland (which houses the ‘quietest’ nano-technology rooms in the world) due to this American companies plans to genetically modify 70% of the world’s cocoa supply through the use of nano-bio technology.

The reason for Il Silvestre’s targeting of the Americans in Libya, this report continues, was the planned US-EU takeover of this northern African nation in order to implement the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) 2008 plan that demanded the massive planting of Monsanto genetically modified corn which former Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi (1942-2011) had refused to allow in his country.

Unbeknownst to the vast majority of Westerners is that the true reason Libya was attacked and taken over by the US and EU was due to its immeasurable fresh water supply controlled by The Great Man Made River (GMR) Project described as the “eighth wonder of the world.”

The GMR is the largest underground network of pipes and aqueducts in the world and consists of more than 1,300 wells, most more than 500 meters deep, and supplies 6,500,000 gallons of fresh water per day to the cities of Tripoli, Benghazi, Sirte and elsewhere making Libya the potentially largest agricultural exporter on the whole continent of Africa.

Interesting to note, this report says, is that one of the GMR’s main financial backers was the United States main war profiteering company Brown & Root, whose company evolution has seen its name change to Kellogg Brown & Root, then Halliburton, and, finally, the name it goes by today, KBR, Inc.

Romney goes from being thrilled to sign legislation that would ban all abortions yet says he will do nothing on abortion legislation.

So, none of Mitt Romney's friends would benefit from his tax cuts.

None of Mitt Romney's friends benefited from TARP.

None of Romney's friends would benefit from his eliminating the tax on foreign profits.

Unless those people did something illegal, got something they weren't qualified for, the it doesn't matter.

What does matter is Todd Akin is a women hating, legitimate Rape idiot who thinks raped women can't get pregnant.

He just called every woman who was impregnated by a rapist a lying slut.

All you phone right whiners denounced hos statement but now rush in to fund his campaign.

You are just too stupid to know that this does not mean they are paying a higher rate but rather they are getting richer while the rest get poorer.

The rich get richer & the middle class shrinks.

Barack Hussein Obama II, has a net worth between $2,801,012 and $11,830,000, according to analysis of his 2012 financial disclosure forms. Excluding his primary home. His Chicago home is worth (allowing for depressed housing market) about 1.5 million.
Mitt worked hard and earned his money. Where did Obama get his?
Distractions become compulsory in MSNBCbot land.

So why does FOX feel the need to tell us that the Bird is richer than Romney?

Distraction. You know, how stupid was it to go after a children's tv character.

<quoted text> The president wasn't creative enough to do that, so Obama just ran with it and made a fool of himself again. LOL
He didn't want Mr. Romney to explain AGAIN to him the concept of what it means to borrow 40 cents out of every dollar you spend and how to evaluate expenditures to stop it. He knew a lot of people were watching that debate; some of them would make up their minds by the concepts brought out. He just didn't want it shown again how incompetent he has been with other people's money to those viewers. Better to wait and distort it to his base, where he will be ooh'd and aaah'd like he has said something profound.

I want to make an appeal to O'bama's people in Chicago: Run this ad every night over and over again, Spend all of your money and time on this. This is an ad that is trivial. It diminishes the presidency. It assumes, of course, that everybody wants to subsidize a company that, as we now know is [one] third of a billion-dollar enterprise. Big Bird himself is a 1%er--he makes over 300 thousand a year. Big Bird will be boycotted. Way to go O'bama.

Mitt Romney takes a position on tax policy, then his staff says something else. Romney takes a position on Iran, then his staff says something else. Romney takes a position on health care, then his staff says something else. Romney takes a position on his own immigration adviser, then his staff says something else.
This new one, however, is a doozy, even by Romney standards.
Mitt Romney today said no abortion legislation is part of his agenda, but he would prohibit federally-funded international nonprofits from providing abortions in other countries.
"There's no legislation with regards to abortion that I'm familiar with that would become part of my agenda," the GOP presidential candidate told The Des Moines Register's editorial board during a meeting today before his campaign rally at a Van Meter farm.
It took all of two hours before Romney's chief spokesperson said the exact opposite, explaining, "Gov. Romney would of course support legislation aimed at providing greater protections for life." Asked whether the candidate's position on abortion legislation had changed, Romney's spokesperson would "not answer directly."
It now appears that Romney has taken nine different positions on abortion rights over the course of 18 years.
What are we to make of a candidate who keeps trying to appear mainstream, only to have his aides change the story a couple of hours later?
He is incredible! What will he say today? What is he doing in this photo? Is this his position on public education?

If it turns into a Fox News matchup like the last debate, Joe can shout it out with the best of em, he won't follow the rules of the debate and bite his tongue like the president did.
Bite his tongue? LOL... he swallowed his tongue!! That's what happens when his brilliance comes across a teleprompter, that's what happens when affirmative action extends to the White House. That's what happens when presidential standards are relaxed and expectations are lowered because of skin color. Obama was a deer in the headlights and I'll tell you something, it's going to happen again.

Bullsh!t. At what point in the debate did you run out of your room crying? Romney was very specific about what he'd do and why. Obama, on the other hand, saw himself as "eye-candy" believing his mere presents would carry the day. Today, he admitted that as he left the stage, he thought he'd won the debate - clueless. What a narcissistic dandy.
Really.

Name the deductions & loopholes he will eliminate to balance out his 5 trillion tax cut?

Name the programs he will cut. Other than PBS
