Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

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

Now what?
But hey, I laugh my ass off every time you right Whiners complain about Afghanistan.
A war that should have ended long before Obama took office but it was far from over.
It was far from over because George Bush declared Bin Laden irrelevant & abandoned our troops in Afghanistan to invade a country that had nothing to do with 9-11 or terrorism, Iraq.
Obl is dead and obama has been president for 4 years and we are still there.

Mitt Romney stood on stage at the Tampa Bay Times Forum for several minutes Thursday afternoon while his teleprompters were adjusted ahead of his big address to delegates later in the evening.

Every speech on stage at the RNC has been run through prompters, save for Condoleeza Rice's address, which she read from notes. Conservatives -- including Paul Ryan, who also used a teleprompter in his convention speech -- have long mocked President Obama's use of the devices. Romney was one of the few Republicans to defend the practice and he appeared to take pains to make sure his prompters were just right.

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.
How stupid was it for ALL of YOU to miss the BIG point and concentrate on the minutia of a pretend children's character instead of the borrowing money from China.

Since you missed the point you referenced above, it is that BIG BIRD can support his own fat self and we don't need to borrow any more dollars from China to support things that don't need supporting.

You guys always stop comprehending BEFORE the end of the sentence. It's also the way immature children argue.

Romney brought up Big Bird as an EXAMPLE since the moderator was from PBS, it was the perfect time and place to use the example due to the question coming from PBS as well.
Now it's far from Romney's fault that Obama's campaign has not shown anymore intellect then to think Big Bird was not just an example used by Romney but somehow the entire "meat" of the debate.
Obama's campaign is showing their desperation like a proud grandparent showing pics of their new grandbaby.....over and over and over....bragging and bragging and bragging, all the while the desperation grows just like the grandkid, every day getting bigger and bigger. So apparent and so pathetic is their desperation and just like the poor folks stuck next to that proud grandparent they can't even see how sick and tired the American people are of being exposed to Obama's desperation and shallow topics like Big Bird when the country is at the edge of a financial cliff, murdered ambassador's, Islamic flags replacing our flags at no less than three different embassey's in three different countries, unemployment of millions of American's, and on and on and on we could go of the IMPORTANT issues and what is our president doing...campaigning, campaigning, vacationing, golfing, campaigning, and fundraising to no end, interviews with hard hitting news sources like Letterman, The View ladies, Pimp with a Limp, Nickalodeon, etc etc etc. And what is the top items on Obama's to do list......1) accuse Romney of lying 2) remind American's of Romney's goal to kill Big Bird 3) well my bad, I guess there isn't anymore on the list of things to focus on for our president. Yep, there's a president that has our country and our country's citizens best interest at heart....because everyone is worried about Big Bird right now.....right? What a president! I bet the housekeeper at the White House has had to add to their list of things to do..... dust president's chair in Oval Office.
Michelle Obama recently said in an interview that she rarely goes in the Oval office. she's not the only one.

Obama is more interested in the celebrity of the office than the substance.

remember when Hillary was campaigning about that 3am phone call to the red phone? with Obama it would go right to voicemail with 9 days for a response.

<quoted text>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.
Yeah, those ads have almost convinced ME to change my vote!(Snicker) Do another one with BB in a white Suburban with Oscar and the trashcan in the front seat. That's what your president thinks is important today.

Who cares if someone uses a teleprompter? These rightwingers love to keep whining and repeating the same old stuff ad nauseum.
