Is Obama a bad debater?
This is the title of an op-ed. No opinion really made but I like this paragraph.
"The media response reminds me of Eugene McCarthy’s observation that journalists are “like birds on a wire”— all flapping and twittering off in the same direction at the same time. Meanwhile, partisans watching debates are like baseball fans during the playoffs, hyperventilating as they vacillate between ecstasy and despair, depending on each game’s outcome. And like sports fans, many would rather excoriate their side for a loss than credit the other team for a win."
Now, that is a good observation.
The roles will be reversed after the next debate. Just wait. Fox n Friends will be hyperventilating.

None of the above. He should have resigned and let Mitt Romney/Paul Ryan take over the reigns to create jobs for everyone including the poor.

One Million Strong Against Mitt Romney in 2012
&#8206;"Right now in Freeport, Illinois, some 170 workers at an auto sensor plant are sleeping in tents to protest Bain-owned Sensata Technology’s decision to ship their jobs to China.
The company recently made factory officials take down the American flag when they were forced to train their Chinese replacement workers, according to Tom Gaulrapp, with the United Steelworkers Union.
That's un-American, my friends.
This is taking place as Mitt Romney tries to convince people to believe that he doesn’t know about Bain's shipping American jobs overseas. He is trying to distance himself from Bain Capital, a pioneer of outsourcing where Romney made a fortune as CEO."
Only idiots equate what bain does now with romney.

What's up with personal attacks. You must be a Romney fan and didn't like my non biased post which predicts he loses.
I was a model and made great money that I saved and paid my way through six year not eight of College and I'm a corporate investor and don't care if people judge books by covers or not. Take your personal attacks elsewhere. I don't buy into that kind of BS.
Her personal attack was non biased. It was based on obvious facts. First, you're a blond. Second, you think you're 'hot'. Third, you're a blond.

The votes were D-149 for and R-147 for

But, none of this makes any difference as Lamb said during the congressional hearings last week that budgetary concerns did not influenced her decision.

For the last time:

Who "owns" the national debt: Who was president when all that dough was borrowed?

All presidents combined BEFORE REAGAN: 7%

BUSH 1: 11%
BUSH 2: 43%

These btttttches sure like to ring it up!

For you and yours! Forever!

Mitt Romney says "do it again"

Borrow trillions just like my republican btttttches!

So the richest like Mitt can pay squat?

Wake up dumbffffcks!

carol and Mitt want you to die in the street.

"No insurance for you."

"The lines will be too long at the ER."


President Obama said ffffffffck that!

Check out the ACA! Signed into law by Obama!

Can you search? You dumbfffffcking lazy azzzzes?

search: Mitt Romney Lied in front of 72 million

Search: Mitt Romney Serial Liar

Search: why do Republicans suck so bad

Then: gfy! ftg out..........

Any records to run on but attack Romney and in first debate B.O. was mute and lost w/o teleprompter and his advisers to whisper what to say...his advisor Valerie Jerrett and his wife's friend, has more secret service protection here in U.S. that our Ambassador in Benghazi...

The President is the right person in office, but if the Congress and Senate don't work for the people who voted them in; US the 47%!!! Maybe we should consider term limits on them. Can you imagine... working hard out the gate, working as a team to resolve all issues on every angle. Just another dream that bites the dust... they have made it clear, they will sit on their hands to do nothing!!! And it doesn't effect them one bit, but hurts the one who needs it the most!!!

This is as plain as the nose on your face, but blind eyes don't see the truth!!!


Being different, doesn't mean we can't achieve goals that we desire.

A house is built one brick at a time, by all people with many dreams. My question to you is, what shall you uses your brick for?

1. To work layer by layer, making something stronger, durable for all eyes to see the nature of our strength, when all joints are interlocked working as one unit to obtain a common goal!!


2. To be a dead weight around your neck, not only killing you... but the hopes and dreams of all people.

Airborne!!! Ret.

No money in the Obama Care Fund to buy it?..and you guys think we are not in money problems because of Obama.
