He can't tell the truth to save his soul.
On the campaign trail this week, Romney has been telling the story of how he met Glen Doherty, the Navy Seal killed in the attack on Benghazi. Romney told it for the last time this morning in Ohio, around the same time that Doherty's mom told Boston's WHDH 7 that she wants Romney to stop using the story:
I don't trust Romney. He shouldn't make my son's death part of his political agenda. It's wrong to use these brave young men, who wanted freedom for all, to degrade Obama.
Where's the lie? And why cant romney tell about something that happened to him?

Medicare needs some revision to remain solvent-and guess what-I am in the post-1958 crowd.

<quoted text> Call me old fashioned but I think they should pay minimum wage and make them work for their tips. It may cause the food and beverage price to go up a bit but the service would be much better,IMO. I refuse to go any place that has a built in tip on the receipt. Tips are for rewarding good service not part of their pay,IMO. I'm a very good tipper if the service is great but goes down from there.
Once took the President and Vice-President of Honda Mexico to Hooters. The waitress took our wing and beer order and then talked to her friends across the room. I had to get up and get our beers then the wings. Even had to go to the bar for a pitcher refill. Time for the bill and there was a 18% tip built into it. I told her I wasn't paying for the tip. She called the manager and he threatened to call the cops. I said go ahead. He didn't call them but he took the tip off the bill. I wasn't even paying Honda was.
Yada yada__there are people working in the hospitality industry in my area who earn $60K per year and more because they hustle. There are young ladies working at Hooters and Kers Winghouses earning $30K much of it tax free working part time while attending community college.

There are banquet servers, bartenders and runners, for Christ sakes 3.000 or more twice a year at Daytona International and you don't even wanna hear how much the BikeWeek bartenders and tub girls earn during those events.

It's a real business and it will survive no matter how much corporations and politicians try to fk it up.

You're a bar guy Flacko__you should know about this stuff.

<quoted text> Why can't these people understand there is no money? Are they really that dense? The clue to them should have been during the debt ceiling debate when Obama threatened the seniors that they wouldn't get their SS if they didn't raise the debt limit. Friggin' libtards are SO stupid!!!
Who took us off the path of balanced budgets and why are you voting for them.

The recession left by the previous administration killed all chances of reducing the deficits.

You don't fight a recession by government retraction.

Any hopes of reducing the debt is tied to getting our economy back on track.

Instead of bitching about those trying to fix it, why not bitch about those who were in charge when it happened.

Why the f*ck are you voting for Paul Ryan?

Just by chance, if he does go down that road, I suggest he use David Blaine. Magic or deception is his only viable option.

You rant constantly about the debt & support the guy the voted yes yes yes to create not only the debt under Bush but create the recession that cost us trillions.

Ryan was first elected to the House in 1998.
Joe Biden was first elected to the Senate in 1972.
So much for your "career politician" argument...
Anyway...all Ryan has to do is come across like the star quarterback. Biden will eventually look like the waterboy - as lovable but as misguided as Joe is.
Sort of like you, Homer.
Can you believe some lunatics even clicked the white light bulb Carol?

Hm...that line "people are entitled to facts, just not thier own" comes to mind lol.(and derrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr)

FACT IS-you had it RIGHT!!
"Both are politicians who earned their electoral success at an early age and then settled themselves into long careers on Capitol Hill. Biden was elected to the Senate at age 29 and Ryan was elected to the House at 28."

Sorry Homer. No point for that "career politician".

Paul Ryan is going to slap Biden so hard in the debates his suit will be out of style when he stops spinning.

I am sure we will hear that the middle class has, in fact, been buired for the last four years.

Bad news on debates Obama.

1. No telepromters and pre-prepared statements. You also do not get to review the questions and only respond to the ones you want to (like a white house press conference).

2. No Pinch hitters (I am sure you would have like BIll Clinton to step in for you).
