Barack Obama, our next President

Defending Romney's lies will have him feeling like he's in chains.
No, Ryan will take "Plugs" to school on budgetary matters. He knows it inside and out. Biden as lived in the Beltway for too many years, 29 is probably close, he doesn't have a clue what goes on outside?

Impressionable young minds.

I don't think Ryan is the type to play nasty anyway, he seems quite respectful of others, so maybe it'll work out okay.

Remember that OLD quip, it's not "win or lose"...O did himself a favor, by playing decently. Good for him!!

(now if he could just get the lemming herd pack minions armed w/phat crayons-- out of the butts of ignorance-that Big Bird stuff really is pathetic.)

But some critics said that the foreign policy themes that Romney enunciated relied heavily on repeated yet vague assertions that he’ll be a better leader than Obama. Also, they said, his actual policies hew fairly closely to existing US positions.

As to US relations with Israel, it does seem clear that a Romney administration would take a different tack, in that Romney vows to align the US more closely with Israeli interests.“The world must never see any daylight between our two nations,” he said.

On Syria, however, Romney said he’d work with allies to make sure rebels who “share our values” get the arms they need. That’s pretty much what’s going on now, though Romney might urge the transfer of more powerful weapons.

In Afghanistan, Romney hinted that Obama had pulled out troops too fast, but added,”I will pursue a real and successful transition to Afghan security forces by the end of 2014.”

That’s the current Afghanistan timetable.

As for Iran, Romney has said that it should not get nuclear weapons capability. The Obama administration has been vaguer about exactly what line Iran should not cross. But Romney did not rattle sabers here, saying only that he’d impose new sanctions on Iran and tighten ones already in place.

Those are the tools the current administration says it will rely on for the time being to try to curb Tehran.

Both Obama and Romney have the same foreign policy goals, writes Daniel Drezner, a blogger for Foreign Policy magazine. They want a peaceful, stable Middle East, for example. That’s unsurprising.

It’s in the means where they should differ.“And – in op-ed after op-ed, in speech after speech – Romney either elides the means altogether, mentions means that the Obama administration is already using, or just says the word ‘resolve’ a lot,” Mr. Drezner writes.“That’s insufficient.”

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....

He actually told by what standard he would use to decide what to cut, but gave Big Bird as part of an EXAMPLE of the cuts to fund PBS because the moderator was from PBS and so it was a good time to mention it and a perfect example to give.
It took those brilliant Obama campaign thinkers to grab onto Big Bird and run with it. Of course what else can they do after the epic fail of Obama and embarressing debate performance.
The ONLY thing libs had to hold on to was the playground mentality of saying "you lied, and you want to kill Big Bird".
I can't imagine the pride you must have knowing that your perferred candidate's entire campaign has withered down to nothing more than acting like they are in third grade and lost a race at recess. Beaming, I bet you're just beaming!!!! And because you really are and the mentality of the entire progressive voter population is to be beaming with pride over Obama is EXACTLY why you are getting your ass' handed to you in this election. Our country is in far to bad of a condition to be bothered with the likes of Big Bird, and Big Bird even knows it, that is why even he is telling Obama's campaign to leave him out of it.

Now pay attention DUH A VEY-

The next time one of you lemming herd pack bootlicker bobbleheads LIE and try to spin off the LIES--remember-there are SOME actual viable cadidates w/ REAL ideas, to steady out the economy, and steer it back to free market supply and demand, rather than givverment dependency and drain, again, by cutting WASTEFULNESS where it would be just fine to do so.

Remember THAT--next time you crave to holler "lies...they're liars" okay?

Ryan is a career politician, I'm sure he has smooth talking down to a science. At least you recognized that the president acted decently. Your hero Romney brought Big Bird into the discussion.

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.)

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.
Shoudn't Martha be recusing herself? how is this impartial?
