Well, he did vote for every piece of spending legislation put forth when Bush was in office and voted to raise the debt ceiling as well so suppose he does know about budgets.

During 14 years in Congress, Ryan consistently and loyally voted to increase the debt. He did not take political risks or buck his party to combat “our exploding deficits” then. Instead, he voted for 65 different pieces of legislation to expand the debt. He requested earmarks.(Another pricey problem that he now opposes.)

First things first. Get a grip. Can't do everything at once. Doesn't mean Christians agree with Obama's KILL-EM-ONE-MINUTE-BEFORE-ACTU AL-BIRTH stand.

Mitt Romney is worth $250 million. Why so little?
No surprise, Romney has not made it easy to figure out the precise size of his fortune, and any inferences drawn from the available data are necessarily speculative....

Speculation becomes fact in FOXbot land. As usual.
President Barack Obama was a guest at the 1991 wedding of ABC senior foreign correspondent and vice presidential debate moderator Martha Raddatz. Obama and groom Julius Genachowski, whom Obama would later tap to head the Federal Communications Commission, were Harvard Law School classmates at the time and members of the Harvard Law Review.

<quoted text>So you are saying the package was toxic. Are you kidding me? It was a compounding pharmacy. O'bama buried the regulating of them to keep the drugs cheap. Meanwhile, the company shipped across state lines, which further opened the door for the FDA to take action. The FDA did nothing.
Do you know what a compounding Pharmacy does?

They take drugs & packages them for individual use use.

For example, some injectable drugs come in powdered form. The pharmacy adds sterile water & mixes it into a liquid.

These types of pharmacies are not under FDA inspection.

You are a liar when you say Obama buried the regulation, it was never there.

So really, quit being so uninformed.

BUT, the FACT is, Economics 101, and areas that really do not require government financing.

Big Bird is definitely in that category.

One problem.

The liar Mitt Romney does not have the votes!

President Obama has the electoral votes needed to win again. Romney the liar can't get 100 electoral votes in 30 days! Wake up! Join the majority!

President Obama is a genius.

He let Mitt Romney lie and lie, live on Tv, now on tape.

He played it coy.

He wants the popular vote!

He fired up his base to get out and bring the vote in November!

And we will bring it!

Who else supposedly "lost" the first debate and won re election?

Clinton! Reagan! Obama!

Obama is the smartest President in a long time.

You think his performance was not planned?

MITT ROMNEY SERIAL LIAR. <---- search that!

It shows facts about Romney lying to Gingrich!

On national TV.

Many months ago! I found that! But Obama couldn't? Get real!

Romney did exactly what President Obama knew he would do!

President Obama is a genius!

Now he gets it all: electoral vote and popular vote!

Nobody likes a liar! Even real Republicans! They will vote for Obama just like last time! Millions of them!

If they come & go all the time, WTF are you bitching about fill time employees.

Make up your mind.

Cheapasses will be cheapasses regardless of the law.

You do realize that there are other benefits such as paid vacation, sick days, retirement, etc that part timers don't get that full timers do.

right?

I mean you do know this, right.

So, there has always been a certain incentive to go to part time workers. But they don't. But, I don't expect you get the reason why.

Um...speaking slowly now.

His criteria will be if we are borrowing almost one-half of each dollah (as Obama says) to pay for ANYTHING, it better be completely NECESSARY. Big Bird can pay for himself. I'll bet the STUFFED Big Bird concession alone would cover him.

Now...apply that criteria of borrowing almost ONE HALF of what we spend to each item and decide what's REALLY important.

BTW, why aren't those kids smarter NOW than they were in the past before Big Bird was hatched? Test scores please.

Under the O'bama administration, the FDA has opted not to crack down on compounding pharmacies that are mass-producing cheaper drugs under less scrutiny than heavily regulated pharmaceuticals as part of a push to reduce health costs.

Big Bird would do just fine on Nick, Cartoon Network, Disney and other like age -level stations.

Actually, it would probably help their ratings.

Something with a little more substance, rather than some of the hollywierd and whine shows of make believe.

Actual Edu materials are well represented via many free platfroms as well as subscription for streaming ops anyway...SANS the GARBAGE that often floats in amongst the worthwhile.

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?
