LOL, he was rewarded the PRIZE for what he may potentially do. He was only been in office for a few months. It was one of those parodies this admin always has swirling around it.
I wonder if he would win now?

"Did I mention I killed Bin Laden?" how Obama should end every point because he has absolutely nothing else and looks pathetic
"Did I mention I knew Glen Doherty?", Rmoney likes to say this. It's complete bullsh't. They met for a brief time at a party. Glen Doherty described the meeting as "pathetic and comical". "Twenty minutes later he (Romney) approached me and reintroduced himself again. He didn't even recognize me".

Heard saying? She did ask and Romney complied unlike Obama who continues exploiting Big Bird- one of PBS most profitable brands.

Even you should know this a stretch.
It is like saying-
You know Obama use to own this house and now is renting it and someone was murdered in it so you know Obama is somehow connected -
This is just one of hundreds of examples of what Mitt Rmoney's Bain Capital does. They did the same thing when he was CEO.
And he calls himself "tough on China"? He's an ass.

The military was only able to kill Bin Laden due to President Obama's superb planning and brilliant strategic skills. Clinton and Bush tried and failed. President Obama succeeded because he is a much better strategist, just like he is a far better President!

Interesting twist from the google search engine.

Looking for Mitt Romney photos? You could just search the presidential candidate's name in Google Images, or now you could instead type "completely wrong" to see his face over and over again.

The search engine's gallery for the phrase appears organically because of Romney's recent admission: "I said something that's just completely wrong," he remarked regarding his 47 per cent-of-Americans comment from May.
And so it goes

You also probably believe the satire of Romney banning tampons as true too.

Come on, fess up. You will believe anything.

he got bin-laden killed, supported gay marriage, repealed "Don't ask, Don't tell" ,supports abortion, and stopped the deficit from skyrocketing even higher by taxing the wealthiest, those are good reasons for him to get my vote. Nuff said.

what to look foward to if Romney gets elected.

LETTER: Mitt Romney's Massachusetts Record of Failure

Under Romney, Massachusetts plummeted to 47th out of 50 in job creation and manufacturing jobs fell at twice the national average, the third-worst record in the country. As jobs disappeared, hundreds of thousands of people left the state. Romney also raised taxes and fees on Massachusetts residents more than 1000 times. When he left office, the tax burden had gone up by $1,200 per person.

5 Facts About the Massachusetts Economy Under Mitt Romney

1) Ranked 47th in job growth

2) Suffered the second-largest labor force decline in the nation

3) Lost 14 percent of its manufacturing jobs

4) Experienced “below average” economic growth and was “often near the bottom”

5) Piled on more debt than any other state

I think it is rather sad that she said that considering what Romney actually said.

Mitt Romney is often described as too stiff, lacking any sense of humor, and “out of touch” with the “average” American. On Tuesday, however, the Republican nominee continued to show new depths to his character while giving a moving speech about one of the former Navy SEALs killed in the attack on our consulate in Benghazi last month.

The speech began with a humorous anecdote, but just a few minutes later made Romney choke up as explained how he once met the SEAL, confirmed by the campaign as Glen Doherty. The whole thing ended with a mark of patriotism, and a reminder of how America is needed in the world.

Beginning with an account of how the Romney family was invited to a neighborhood party through a letter in the mail, Romney explained how– though they didn’t originally intend to go– they changed their minds after seeing all the lights and cars just across the street.

He related what a good time they had, how they were fed and met new people, before saying with laughter:“Turns out this wasn’t the neighborhood party…This was a family, having a party with their friends.”

At that party, though, Mitt Romney was able to meet a man from his home state of Massachusetts, a former Navy SEAL.

“You can imagine how I felt out when I found out he was one of the two former Navy SEALs killed in Benghazi on September 11,” he continued, choking up,“and it touched me, obviously, when I recognized this young man that I thought was so impressive lost his life in the service of his fellow men and women.”

Romney continued, saying he heard Doherty and his colleagues were actually across town when the violence began.

“They didn’t hunker down where they were in safety – they rushed there to go help,” Romney concluded with emotion.“This is the American way – we go where there’s trouble. We go where we’re needed. And right now we’re needed– right now, the American people need us.

During his second term he's going to get rid of all these guns. It's time for Americans to break their addiction to deadly firearms.

Once again..Glen Doherty described meeting Romney as "pathetic and comical".

The key words here are: "and his military advisors". Obama didn't do it alone.
