What is in those records so damning that he's sealed them, spent 2 million in legal fees to prevent any disclousures? Obama himself made the comparison on hiding the truth from the American people was the wrong thing to do.
Hussein Obama registered as a foreign citizen to get breaks on admission and/or scholarships.....

Lighten up Lily, what you're hearing from Peppy and others here is bullshyte. While Darden is the largest national it's no different from the others, Outback, Chili's etc.

Clarence Otis, Dardens chief is black and once had lunch with Obama and also has adopted healthy eating menus at Olive Garden, BFD it's a (R) outfit as is Outback and all the others including Hooters.

The pay ($2.13 in FL) varies from state to state as do the requirements for workers comp and other mandates.

Darden also employ's designers, construction managers, and scads of other professionals, Darden is currently creating the largest lobster farm on the planet in Malaysia and owns the bulk of the Alaskan crab intake seen on The Deadliest Catch and similar shows.

It's not all about servers and bartenders any more than GM is about bolting fenders on autos.

We already know Mitt Romney is cutting social security & medicare by making seniors pay more. What's he cutting from veteran benefits?

You see, Mitt says saving money in the medicare program is bad. So he just decided to make the recipients pay more.

Education is a matter of national security & you want o let it to states that teach there is no evolution & cavemen rode dinosaurs.

We just point pout how you supported these thngs under Bush but now whine about these things under Obama.

YOUR VP candidate was there & voted yes on everything Bush did & that makes it relevant. It means the Romney/Ryan ticket supported those things.

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.
I agree that Obama can't tell the truth to save his soul, or anyone else's, for that matter. His entire presidency has been a fraud, and you are still silly enough to support it.

Days after he declared that he wants to put "more teachers" in schools, Mitt Romney criticized President Barack Obama's plan to do just that."
[President Obama] wants to hire more government workers," Romney said. "He says we need more fireman, more policeman, more teachers. Did he not get the message of Wisconsin? The American people did. It's time for us to cut back on government and help the American people."
Right. It'll "help the American people" just as soon as we allow more layoffs of school teachers and first responders. Why will the economy benefit when these workers are unemployed? Romney never got around to explaining that, but the larger point was hard to miss: the president believes the country would benefit from fewer teacher layoffs; Romney believes the opposite.
At least, that's the way it seemed. Four months later, in last week's debate, President Obama brought this up, noting, "Governor Romney doesn't think we need more teachers. I do."
The Republican responded, "I reject the idea that I don't believe in great teachers or more teachers." In other words, Romney no longer seems to agree with what he said in June.
That is, until yesterday, when Romney sat down with the editors of the Des Moines Register. As Sam Stein noted, the former governor seemed to revert back to his original stance, arguing, "He wants to hire more school teachers. We all like school teachers. It's a wonderful thing. Typically, school teachers are hired by states and localities, not by the federal government. But hiring school teachers is not going to raise the growth of the U.S. economy over the next three-to-four years."
LOL.
local school districts should hire as many teachers as they feel they need and can afford.....the federal government has no role in education....

more money to educate teachers is a waste given the huge oversupply of unemployed teachers....

USA citizens die in Europe! Warm beer? Nasty sausage?
Does the President personally figure out every citizens security detail on foreign soil?
Of course not!
Can we learn a lot from this terrible tragedy?
Yes!
Just like Bush/Cheney lining the Iraq street corners with our citizens: they were picked off in drive by's!
On video!
Bush/Cheney: they love us over there! Welcomed us in! REALLY?

"Every citizen deployed to a foreign country is told "you could be killed over there." EVERY SINGLE ONE."

Are citizens deployed in highly volatile countries warned that State WON'T increase security even when a deteriorating environment forces consulate security officers to request additional protection?
