Biden made a Fool of himself in several ways. This is but one. He claimed that Obamacare will not force anybody to go against their religious beliefs at any hospital. Well, gee wiz, Hair-Plug Joe, why are religious groups in court suing your wonderful administration and what for? Bishops today took out full-page newspaper ads knocking the idiot VP for his lying in the debate. Also, the administration is desperately trying to distance themselves from Biden's embarrassing debate remarks that he and the President had no idea about the security risks and requests at that Libyan Consulate. Yep, Hair-Plug Joe just made one of the most inept administrations in American history look even more inept. But the Lying Liberal Media believes Biden won the debate last night.
Martha whats-her-name-radditz was useless studio flotsam while Big Mouth Biden cut off Ryan's allotted times for response over one hundred times. Big Mouth Biden played to the cameras like he was in purview of a Chimpanzee Exhibit's Security Camera.
If Biden's statements are in fact true and the Obama administration did not know about the requests for increased security in Libya or the reduction in security in response to the requests for increased security then there is something seriously wrong within the Obama administration. This is a great reason to replace it with a Republican administration.

If Biden's statements are in fact true and the Obama administration was being told by intelligence sources that the events occuringin Libya were in response to a you tube video, and all of the public announcements were made to that effect without vetting the information first the Obama administration is incompetant and needs to be replaced by Republicans.

If on the other hand Biden and the administration knew exactly what happened then the Obama administration is trying to cover up what really happened there.(They did have a live feed from the security cameras in Libya) Intelligence officers were monitoring those camera feeds. The Obama administration is guilty of telling lies to the American people and to the world. Heck they even spent 70k to advertise this lie in Pakistan. There would be two motivations to do this. One is to tell the arab world "it isn't our fault a filmaker did it." The other is to perpetuate the lie that terrorism is dead because Obama killed it.

In the latter case of the Obama administration is just as guilty as Nixon was at Watergate. A major election is/was at stake in both instances. The facts were obscurred to gain a political advantage over the opponent in both cases.

I think we need to investigate the facts and initiate impeachement proceedings against Obama for his crimes against the country and our constitution.

Of course businesses should look for more than vague promises from potential employees before hiring them and employees should offer more than vague promises to hire potential employees. Both parties need to understand the pay structure before employment occurs.
“Hope and change” and “moving forward” are campaign slogans meant to express general themes that are vague indeed.
If you are selling “Hope and change,” you don’t need to back it with any specific plan; there could be lots of plans to help sell it. However, if you’re selling a budget plan, you’re selling a specific plan and it needs be available for inspection, numbers included, to make sense.
I understand that you probably prefer Romney to Obama, but please don’t use faulty reasoning. You could better persuade others to prefer him if your argument were coherent. Reasonable people expect to see a budget when one is promised; if Ryan/Romney has no plan, it would be better not to allude to one as a selling point.
Other than his backroom pledge of reimbursement of all campaign donations times 5 with government funds what other economic plans has Hussein Obama offered?

Actually, no, that’s not how budgets are done. Speculating there will be chickens and then counting them before they hatch is either wishful thinking or a “bill of goods.” All that glitters is not gold. The Ryan budget just doesn’t, nor could it possibly, add up without any numbers. Arithmetic requires numbers.
Even if the all the numbers don't add up nice and tidy-like with the Romney/Ryan plan, the formula still is a winner:

Compare this...

More incentives to hire; more people working, more people paying taxes; closing loophole so wealthy pay more; cutting back size of federal government in lieu of states' rights; and cutting spending unless absolutely necessary.

To this, the alternative...

A second Obama term would guarantee the president’s health care law will be fully implemented, and businesses are warning that may affect their employees.

Darden Restaurants, which owns more than 2000 restaurants and employs 180,000 people is the latest industry to look for a way to avoid ObamaCare.

White Castle, McDonald’s and Denny’s have said they are looking for a way to avoid the new employer mandate due to take effect in 2014.

Westgate Resorts CEO David Siegel who employs 7000 people has warned if Obama wins, there will likely be layoffs.

Employment law attorney, Robert B. Fitzpatrick, made a prediction if Obama wins re-election:“...You're just playing with the numbers and playing with the hours to try to avoid compliance with providing health care to employees...and there are going to be consequences.”

..."and there will be consequences..."

In fact, we are seeing the consequences even before 2014.

The choice couldn't be more clear.

WASHINGTON -- During Thursday night's vice presidential debate, Vice President Joe Biden attacked Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) for criticizing the president's stimulus act despite having sent two separate requests for stimulus funds for his district.
Biden was wrong. Ryan sent at least four requests.
A Freedom of Information Act request for correspondence between Ryan's office and the Environmental Protection Agency, filed by The Huffington Post, unearthed two additional instances in which the Wisconsin Republican petitioned for American Recovery Act funds. In addition, there were many other occasions in which the GOP vice presidential nominee asked the EPA for grant money for projects in Wisconsin's 1st District, which encompasses Ryan's hometown of Janesville and has a slight Democratic lean. Combined, the letters muddy Ryan's claim that the stimulus wasn't helpful and that government spending, more broadly, doesn't assist small businesses.
As the AP noted, Ryan made many such petitions while in Congress. He asked the Food Stamps Access Research program to approve a grant proposal by the Kenosha community center for purposes of educating families about the nutritional benefits of food stamps. In 2002, he wrote the Agriculture Department to help with a loan guarantee to develop a pork packing and processing plant for farms. In 2010, he wrote the Department of Health and Human Services to send money to a Kenosha health center to help "thousands of new patients" get coverage.
Paul Ryan letters.........
http://www.scribd.com/doc/109858723/Paul-Ryan -
“I did not request any stimulus money,” he continued.– Ryan said that he would not vote against something “then write to the government to ask them to send us money.”
"No, I never asked for stimulus," Ryan told WCPO-TV on Thursday. "I oppose the stimulus because it doesn't work. It didn't work. It brought us deeper into debt."
This is great but you left out the best part where Ryan claimed the stimulus money to Wisconsin would create jobs.

Again, doing the math means demonstrating with number values that increased revenues from closing loopholes will be sufficient to offset debits. Accounting is not based on faith in the validity of a theory. While you may be confident that billions of dollars will result from trickle-down economics (that’s why it’s called voodoo economics), your confidence doesn’t constitute a substitute for formal logic (math). No bank would approve a loan based solely on borrower confidence.
You have two choices. The math certainly didn't add up under this administration's arithmetic - the result is still high unemployment with more and more industries finding ways to avoid the excessive costs and mandates of Obamacare.

Insurance premiums are already on the rise. More people are going to be dependent on government because businesses are cutting back employee hours and employees to avoid excessive health care costs under Obamacare.

Unless the Romney/Ryan is given an opportunity to do better than this, we have absolutely nothing to lose.

Will The Election Results Cause Massive Riots To Erupt All Over America?

Michael Snyder
The Economic Collapse
Oct 12, 2012

Will the most divisive campaign in modern American history culminate in massive riots in our major cities? Right now, supporters of Barack Obama and supporters of Mitt Romney are both pinning all of their hopes on a victory on November 6th. The race for the presidency is extremely tight, and obviously the side that loses is going to be extremely disappointed when the election results are finalized. But could this actually lead to violence? Could we actually see rioting in communities all over America? Well, the conditions are certainly ripe for it. A whole host of surveys over the past few years have shown that Americans are very angry and very frustrated right now

Sure Carol but what's the GOP's answer? Cut taxes and regulations which didn't do anything the last time it was tried. Let's take a look at the Romney way of doing business.
Sensata Technologies in Illinois made sensors for the automobile industry and made record profits with the resurgence of the auto industry. That wasn't enough for its owners Bain Capital who figured they could line their own pockets even more by shipping the jobs and equipment to China. While Romney is no longer with Bain it's his business strategy that they're going by and as a major stockholder he still makes money from their deals. The workers of Sensata went to Iowa and to the GOP convention in Tampa to plead their case directly with Romney who as the founder and a major stockholder in Bain still has considerable influence. Their pleas fell on deaf ears.
Bain in addition to padding their profits by paying Chinese workers a fraction of what the American workers were making got a tax deduction for shipping those jobs and equipment to China. Democrats have introduced legislation to end this deduction but have been consistently blocked by the Republicans.
Industries are dropping people from full-time employment and firing employees like dead flies.

However, if you think this is the better alternative over providing incentives to put people back to work again, you go right ahead and vote for another four years of failure.

I'm going to vote my conscience. There's a better alternative.

“You dum dums?” That’s not a way to preface a persuasive argument. Reason works better than baseball bats in debates.
I do “grasp the overall concept of what is happening to the country” and apparently my assessment differs from yours. Therefore, you assume that my assessment is incorrect and conclude that I must be a “dum dum.”
Details do matter. If Romney/Ryan say they have a budget, reasonable people will be convinced if the can see it, but being told that it is still incomplete is not convincing.
I isn't my fault you are a dum dum.... Go look in a mirror and you will find your reason there.

I would be willing to bet that you are one of those people who actually believe anything said, printed by, or televised by the left leaning, Soros funded, left wing media.

Unlike the Democrats who have tabled the budget for the past 3.5 years the Republicans have presented, debated, and passed a budget for each of the years since 2010.
