<quoted text>what's even worse is: White House Calls to Congratulate Obama’s Ideological Brother Hugo Chavez on Election Win
White House press secretary Jay Carney congratulated the Venezuelan people on their recent election, despite exit polls showing the opposition to President Hugo Chavez winning. Chavez was several points behind in the exit polling but the Marxist managed to win the general election by a million votes.

Do you understand the difference between a SPEECH and a DEBATE? Google would be helpful to you perhaps.
Obama proved beyond a DOUBT at the debate he cannot function without someone else's written words in front of him. Romney showed he understands what's going on and can explains his views and why he feels that way.
That's WHY Obama is mocked about teleprompters and Mitch is NOT.
Where is obama school records he is a brain trust why hide your school records that proves how smart you are barry transparent we know everything about Mr. ROMNEY and he is not the President we hold him accountable and he is not the President but barrys base doesn't hold him accountable hhhmmm Iwonder WHY

Voters strongly favor government funding for PBS, poll finds
Although defunding PBS has been a conservative legislative priority since at least the mid-‘90s, the poll’s results suggest that public television enjoys more bipartisan support than, well, just about anything does these days.

Sorry FOXbots. Your delusion that you speak for the majority once again falls flat on it's face.
“The biggest driver of our debt, according to Obama himself, is Medicare,“He’s done nothing on that.… Romney mentioned PBS as the way to say,‘We’re going to go from the biggest expenditures to the most trivial expenditures, because we have to go after everything when we have a deficit this large.’…[For] anybody to run an ad that reminds people of the worst debate that any president has ever had, I think, is a big bird mistake. I hope they run the Big Bird commercial until the end of time.

It was your candidate you made it a point to tell Jim Lehrer that he'd fire him and Big Bird; this fact is the only thing anyone remembers about the debate. You rightwingers are so damn dumb it's not even funny anymore.
Why are you voting for Romney? What is your most important issue?
In spite of what you probably think, it has NOTHING to do with the color of his skin. I have always been in favor of a strong defense, I side with Israel, and the regulations on businesses are keeping them from creating jobs and even starting new businesses.

And the fact there are fewer people with a full-time job now than when he was elected and the ones who had to take part-time to survive don't show up in the unemployment stats.

Just for starters.

Why do you want Obama to win?

......Obama’s debate performance was not as weak as Andrew makes it out to be. I have a family member who heard it with her housemates on the radio (from a farm in New Mexico) and they thought it a draw. Not bad, seeing as Obama was forced to confront a completely different Romney than the one who had been running for the past 18 months, and had to decide on the fly how to deal with that new phenomenon.

Mitt moves to the center. Why? Because you can't win an election with just the FOXbot vote.

I think O'bama had a few Brandy Alexandras at the Crowley wedding-not beers. Is it too much to ask to have a moderator for the presidential or vice presidential debates who did not attend the wedding of one of the candidates?

ROMNEY/RYAN 2012!
REAL FISCAL Experience FOR all of America again!!
Romney lied during the debate when he said Obama spent 90 billion on green initiatives.

He lied when he said all companies that received help failed.

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

The truth is that he does not know. I doubt he even made a list.

Romney doesn't give any details because he has no details.

NONE

He is plan is to sit down with Republicans & Democrats in Congress & come up with ideas. He has none.

So Obama should do whatever Bush did? Like borrow? Even MORE than Bush did? I'm looking for a change. What part of CHANGE didn't you understand when Obama was running? Did you think he was going to STOP overspending and STOP borrowing money like Bush did? THAT would have been a change. He missed the boat on that one.

Get over BUSH. Romney is running. Obama is a failure in oh so many ways.

all fine and well. 70 plus people watched doped up O'bama on TV-if we could just get everyone to listen to conservative radio, the people of the United States wouldn't have elected the communist, O'bama, in the first place.

So, you are telling us the only specific Romney mentioned in the debate was something irrelevant.
No...but that's the ONLY thing the Obama supporters HEARD. Big difference.

Again, his SPECIFIC was the criteria to determine the NEED to borrow money from China to pay for something, to rate the importance of money that is needed to be spent to money that is spent on something that can support itself.

What is hard to understand about the CONCEPT, not the EXAMPLE for the concept.

Romney’s proposal to zero-out federal spending for public broadcasting will have little to no effect on Sesame Street’s budget because the show receives “very, very little funding” from PBS, Sesame Street’s executive vice president Sherrie Westin told CNN last week. Westin said the majority of the show’s funding comes from corporate sponsorships, product sales and donations.
“Quite frankly, you can debate whether or not there should be funding of public broadcasting. But when they always try to tout out Big Bird, and say we’re going to kill Big Bird – that is actually misleading, because Sesame Street will be here,” Westin said.“Big Bird lives on.”

Another famiy values pro life teatardican!!

WASHINGTON -- A pro-life, family-values congressman who worked as a doctor before winning election as a Tea Party-backed Republican had an affair with a patient and later pressured her to get an abortion, according to a phone call transcript obtained by The Huffington Post.

The congressman, Rep. Scott DesJarlais of Tennessee, was trying to save his marriage at the time, according to his remarks on the call, made in September of 2000. And, according to three independent sources familiar with the call and the recording, he made the tape himself.

That race featured charges culled from DesJarlais' divorce from Susan DesJarlais, which was finalized in 2001. The filing included allegations that he held a gun in his own mouth for hours in one instance and that he "dry fired" a gun outside his wife's bedroom in another.

For one thing moron Clinton didn't have a GOP that took a blood oath to block any kind of legislation that would help the economy and give him any kind of credit. The largest economic gains under Clinton were made possible by the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1993 when the Democrats still held the House and Senate.

EXPECT TO SEE MORE OF THIS: The Obama Cultists Crack Up, Jennifer Rubin writes. Note this:

The left’s freak-out is instructive of their view that Obama the candidate flopped but that liberalism as a cause was unblemished. In fact, Obama’s record and rhetoric on everything from hostility to business to regret for America’s international “triumphalism” to pro-abortion extremism (abortion up to the moment of birth, paid for by the government) to the expansion of the liberal welfare state is as close as a president has ever come to the left’s undistilled worldview. His failure to revive the economy after gorging on Keynesianism, like his one-man-wrecking crew in the “peace process”(evidencing the hard left’s antipathy toward the Jewish state), is, in essence, not only a personal failure. His ideas, the left’s hymnal, collapsed on contact with reality.

The left, as I suggested, may soon (if not before the election, than certainly after if he loses) reach the point in which Obama is trashed to save liberalism. It is not, the left tells us, the Keynesian record of failure that was to blame for the debate wipeout; rather it was Obama’s cruddy performance. It’s not that liberalism lacks a reform agenda that is both feasible and politically popular, you see. No, the problem was that Obama didn’t shout “Liar!” loudly enough.

Given a choice between casting off their false idol and giving up the cult of liberalism, there is no competition. Liberals will have no compunction about dumping Obama.
