LOL
Everyone listen to conservative radio?
Maybe you can explain why they don't? Or why everyone doesn't watch FOX?
I'm going with what the black guy said about black folks not voting for Republicans: because we're not stupid.
Not all Black People vote for one party, simply because there are bigots in both party so the democrats cannot be the party of Blacks, some blacks seem to forget the nasty history the democrats have with Black People in America

Obama has been a very good conservative. As you point out.
Unless the standards have changed? Which would lend credence to ignoring any past problems that might still be hanging around. You know, like the Bush tax cuts adding to 'Obama's deficit'.
Just like Bush hopefully Mr. Romney will correct what has gone on in America for the last 13years,it doesn't seem like Bush left OFFICE

Yeah, I know you like the quick talkers, who don't think about what they say. Usually those quick talkers are the ones you can't trust...they are salesmen trying to sell you something you don't really need or want.

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.
WoW! And they did a whole BIG sample of 800 people! I'm SO convinced. AND would also depend on where the sample was pulled. That's hardly representative either.

It's kinda funny to me that Democrats are so realistic. They are called liars and every other name in the book when it's really the only party that can admit the truth.

Remember Sarah Palin? The majority of Republicans thought she won the debate. I had to question whether they saw the same debate as me. To this day, they won't admit that she lost that one - and by a mile.

Keep repeating to yourself. A speech is different from a debate. A speech is different from a debate. You may want to do a little essay to yourself as to the possible reasons why that is true.
So will we see teleprompters in the next?

No. So you should hope that Mitt wins that one too because FOX will have to work overtime to explain why he didn't when there is no teleprompter in sight.

Dear god, you wingnuts sure are acting like Mitt's won already.

Say what Rush?

Obama would be the weakest nominee, declared Limbaugh, who told listeners that Obama "has shown he cannot get the votes Democrats need to win -- blue-collar, working class people. He can get effete snobs, he can get wealthy academics, he can get the young, and he can get the black vote, but Democrats do not win with that."

"He will lose big," Limbaugh predicted.

How Sean Hannity Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Teleprompters
The ongoing right-wing obsession with Obama's teleprompter remains a mystery to me. He doesn't use one any more often than any of his predecessors, or any more often than the men who want to replace him. Yet it's always "har har har he has to write down his words before he says them" and so on. Yet Hannity advises Romney to use one lest his enemies find an error to exploit.
http://gawker.com/5901344/how-sean-hannity-le...
I, for one, don't think he writes his own words. I just don't think he can keep to the party line without it. Case in point...oh...you did watch the debate, didn't you?

<quoted text>The White House breaks down the $90 billion on green energy projects in the stimulus bill like this:
$29 billion for energy efficiency, including $5 billion for improvements in the homes and apartments of low-income households
$21 billion for renewable electricity generation, including wind turbines and solar panels
$10 billion for grid modernization, including millions of “smart meters” that read themselves, eliminating the need for meter readers
$6 billion to help establish factories to make batteries for electric cars and other components of advanced vehicles
$18 billion for fast trains
$3 billion for research and development into capturing and sequestering carbon dioxide
$3 billion for job training and scientific advances in green energy
about $2 billion to help build wind turbines, solar panels and similar “green” products
Fact is not 90 billion has been spent.

Some of this are loan guarantees & loans that get paid back.

Which of these does Romney not support?

Of the twenty of projects supported only 4 companies have gone bankrupt or out of business. Not all of them.

The energy efficiency program was very successful. It created jobs & saved many small businesses from failing while saving people money in energy costs and reducing the strain on our energy supplies. Wow, that sounds like a great program but Romney called that a failure.

And coal. Romney said he loves coal but now that was a failure too.(Romney used to hate coal as Governor & even marched with those wanting to close the coal fired generation plant because he did not support creating jobs through industries that kill people.)

Romney implied the 90 billion was wasteful, even though his record supported these very same things.

That is lie.

Romney is a liar.
