<quoted text>(Sept 14, 2012) After Mitt Romney was knocked back on his heels for commenting on the diplomatic attacks in the Middle East before all of the facts were in, advisers to the GOP nominee said he has yet to receive national security briefings from the Obama administration.
But those briefings will begin next week, a campaign spokesperson told CNN on Thursday.

"For the last several weeks, the Romney campaign has been in touch with the intelligence community to arrange intelligence briefings for Gov. Romney and Rep. Ryan, consistent with tradition," the spokesperson, who declined to be named, told CNN. "They will begin next week and, beyond that, we will have no further comment."
Why do you not comment on president nobama claiming the attack on our embassy was the result of a video? You forgot that fact?

How Does a Traditionalist Vote?
An intelligent conservative’s guide to the presidential election
I’ve said on Facebook that I’m tempted to cut out the middleman this November and write in a vote for Goldman Sachs. But if you’re a traditionalist conservative and you want to accept one of the offerings officially on your ballot, which do you choose?
For partisans, this is a no-brainer. For conservatives in the vein of, say, Russell Kirk, it’s anything but. Faced with the non-choice between Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Thomas Dewey in 1944, Kirk said no to empire and voted for Norman Thomas, the Socialist Party candidate. There was no Fox News to tell him a conservative couldn’t do that.
For all that Kirk didn’t like libertarians —“chirping sectaries,” he called them — if he were in search of a peace candidate today he might well consider the Libertarian Party’s Gary Johnson. Or, closer to Norman Thomas, the Green Party’s Jill Stein.
There’s even an anti-empire case — not a strong one, but one outlined by Justin Raimondo here — for Barack Obama. The incumbent is at least incrementally better than his Republican rival on foreign policy. It’s impossible to imagine Romney not having done every bellicose thing that Obama that did in his first term (from ramping up the drone war in Pakistan to participating in the Libya attack), and Romney has promised a great deal more: more brinksmanship with Iran, more baiting of Russian bears and Chinese dragons, more taxpayer dollars for Pentagon pork. For a smaller military budget and the prospect of fewer wars — according to both candidates themselves — a pragmatic anti-empire conservative might lean toward Obama.
A traditionalist who prioritizes the Supreme Court and the possibility of eventually overturning Roe v. Wade will lean the other way. Romney may or may not appoint reliably right-wing justices, but Obama would invariably appoint more justices like Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan. Just as there’s a chance of less war with Obama, there’s a chance of ending Roe — or moving in that direction — with Romney. Weigh the prospects.
It was oncesaid, its better to let people think you're a fool than to open your mouth and prove it to them. Same thing goes for posting on Topix, SFB.

Russia says the Syria-bound plane intercepted by Turkey amid reports it was carrying cargo which could aid government war efforts was transporting a legal shipment of radar equipment.
"There were no weapons on the plane," said Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.
His comments followed heated exchanges between Turkey and Syria over the exact nature of the items confiscated.
Turkey's PM earlier said Russian-made defence equipment was found on board - a claim Syria dismissed as a lie.
Damascus has challenged the Turks to put the seized goods on public view.

Hey! Penistaker!
Bring up some old schitttt?
How about Mitt Romney's Mormonism?
Did you know they wrote in their Bible: black people are marked because they are cursed by the Mormon God?
Cursed by God!
When Mitt Romney was teaching Mormonism in France in 1968: the official church position was no blacks allowed!
So let's bring up old schitttt!
Mitt Romney's Gran pappy's laid with many many many wives! Did you know that?

Was that before, or after.....
Mitt Romney’s comment that Russia is America’s “No. 1 geopolitical foe,” a red-meat line for Republicans, is also attracting some attention in Moscow.
Alexey Pushkov, chairman of the international affairs committee of the State Duma, said in a recent interview that Russian leaders have noted Romney’s comments with concern, and are watching with interest as neoconservative and “realist” advisers maneuver for influence within the campaign.
“We don’t think that for us Romney will be an easy partner,” said Pushkov, an ally of President Vladimir Putin.“We think that Romney will be, on the rhetorical side, a replay of the Bush administration.”
He also noted Romney’s statements that the United States should assert its dominance in the 21st century.
“If he is serious about this, I’m afraid he may choose the neocon-type people…In the first year of his presidency, we may have a full-scale crisis,” he said.
I wish it were possible to silence Mitt Romney from interfering with our international relations? As a candidate, he has no official status as a shaper of U.S. policy, yet he has consistently demonstrated a knack for messing up to alienate foreign governments. We can’t afford to continue giving him free reign for another month. Pandering to the raw red meat base does not work well on the world stage. He should just be our own little (or possibly big) embarrassment.

When two men are fighting and the wife of one of them intervenes to drag her husband clear of his opponent, if she puts out her hand and catches hold of the man by his privates, you must cut off her hand and show her no mercy.

In a much replayed moment from Thursday night's debate, Vice President Joe Biden and Rep. Paul Ryan tussled over whether it was mathematically possible for Mitt Romney to cut tax rates by 20 percent and not add to the deficit. Ryan claimed that it could be done by eliminating unspecified loopholes and deductions, and said that history had demonstrated that such a plan was workable, citing President John Kennedy.

Biden challenged him, arguing that no such thing had ever happened.

In a rare moment of bipartisan accord, Romney himself agrees with Biden's assertion.

"Let's look at history. My plan is not like anything that's been tried before," Romney said at last week's presidential debate.

Ryan argued Thursday that their tax plan is workable. "You can cut tax rates by 20 percent and still preserve important preferences for middle-income taxpayers," he said.

"Not mathematically possible," Biden responded.

"It is mathematically possible," Ryan said. "It's been done before. It's precisely what Republicans are saying ..."

"It has never been done before," Biden interjected.

"It's been done a couple of times," said Ryan.

"It has never been done before," said Biden.

"Jack Kennedy lowered tax rates and increased growth. Ronald Reagan ...," Ryan offered, before Biden cut him off to say, "Oh, now you're Jack Kennedy."

"This is amazing," Biden said.
