Vote Republican:
The Republican Congress has refused to eliminate the $8 billion subsidy for the 13 billion gallons of corn ethanol mandated by the 2007 Energy Independence and Security Act introduced by the GOPers. Producing this ethanol uses 5 billion corn bushels, 40 percent of our total crop. That takes more than 30 million prime crop acres for about 7 percent of our gasoline supply.
A162 gallons of water are required to produce a gallon of ethanol from corn. Drier states with more irrigation use even more water, with Kansas and Nebraska requiring 500 water gallons per ethanol gallon. Much of that water is drawn from the Ogallala Aquifer.
The nation's high corn prices are devastating America's Trillion dollar dairy industry to the point where farmers can't afford to feed their cows - and their professional trade organization has been regularly referring despondent dairymen to suicide hotlines.
Experts in the industry estimate that by year's end California, the largest dairy state in the nation, will have lost more than 100 dairies to bankruptcies, foreclosures and sales. Milk cows are being slaughtered at the fastest rate in more than 25 years because farmers need to save on corn costs.
Vote Democrat:
17 Million children can no longer be denied car for their pre-existing condition!
For crissake,...yer gonna used the ol' Leftist "Do it for the children" BS again? That's older than the Race Card baiting with King Obama.

The Corn Ethanol issue stunk from the first day it began but was jointly initiated by both parties in Congress. Ethanol production with subsidies screwed up markets then and still does now. From food industry to dairy to meat to sweeteners to gasoline usage, Ethanol is a monster on our back now. It is so deep into our economy now that removal at this moment would be like removing the pilot's Heroin stash while we're all in flight.

The recent drought has decimated corn production and added greatly to a growing crisis in many industries as you alluded to. Removing all help for Corn Ethanol production at this moment with a failed Obama Economy would be foolish because of all the job and business losses it would incur.

Vote Republican: We have a good chance of climbing out from the Socialist Hole and become Energy Independent.

What is a buggy man? Did you mean to say boogy man?

Substantiate your assertions.

Last time I checked Romney has never served as President before so what is with the history books?

The Brits closed their Benghazi mission in June after the ambassadors motorcade was attacked leaving their weapons and vehicles at the US consulate. The weapons are currently described as missing and/or unaccounted for. In other words the Brits knew that Benghazi was extremely dangerous and hauled azz leaving the US as the last Western diplomatic mission in Eastern Libya.
Why was the US ambassador inside the consulate building alone and unguarded? Was the consulate the "main" target or was the annex housing CIA agents and operatives the main target.
How is the State Department responsible for providing security for the CIA___is the CIA incapable of requesting additional security? It is after all providing the intel.
Why can't you bring yourself to actually say this was an Obama administration failure?

A REPUBLICAN AND HER TWO DOGS
A girl was visiting her Republican friend, who had acquired two new dogs, and asked her what their names were. The Republican responded by saying that one was named Rolex and one was named Timex.

The Democratic Party has lost its mind and its way. Its political philosophy of inclusion and progress has been consumed by virulent strains of anger, dishonesty and intolerance. Its leaders don’t just want to win an election; they want to silence any American who disagrees with them.
Consider the latest evidence. The White House, on defense over the assassination of our Libyan ambassador after Washington reduced security, launched a frantic search for a scapegoat. It first blamed protests over an anti-Muslim video and, when forced to admit the protests never existed, pointed fingers at intelligence officials and managers in the State Department. Watch your back, Hillary.
A campaign aide, with a straight face, also insisted that the terrorist attack is an issue only because Republicans politicized it. The buck doesn’t stop at this president’s desk.
A desperate Obama resorts to calling his opponent a “liar,” and his latest promise is to preserve taxpayer subsidies for public television’s cash cow, Big Bird. The tactic is denounced even by supporters as more cartoonish than the giant yellow canary. No matter — it’s a victory because another day passes without discussion of jobs, the debt, deficit or Iran.
Then there is Joe Biden whose manic behavior at the debate won the approval of Dems despondent over Obama’s flop at his debate. Biden’s rude laughs, snorts and sneers, combined with hectoring accusations of Paul Ryan, were catnip for those who see Republicans as unworthy and illegitimate.
They actually applaud that Biden’s 100+interruptions prevented any sustained, serious discussion. To hell with America, party comes 1st.
Despite Biden’s assertion that “facts matter,” they didn’t to him. Catholic bishops insist he misstated the terms of ObamaCare’s contraception mandate on their institutions. And although he was patently dishonest about his own votes on Iraq and Afghanistan, no Dem complained because they loved his venomous attacks on Ryan.
There is zero evidence that those not already committed to Obama were impressed by Biden’s buffoonery, but MSNBC and The New York Times are back on the bus. Mission accomplished.
The debate aside, what about ordinary citizens who come up against Democratic malice & its media cheerleaders? Who will protect them?
Celebrities who post they favor Romney receive death threats. The double-standard left thought it was OK to burn effigies of George Bush and then in 2008--displays of McCain and Palin as part of hideously violent Halloween decorations. And they call Romney a liar, a thief and a murderer. But criticize Obama and the dont' disrespect the President or the rac card is quick to come up.
In theory, free speech still exists. But to the new Democrats, speech is free only to those who spout the party line. Everybody else must pay a price.
Brilliant post. Concise, clear, insightful.

The biggest prize is to get the ambassador. Your point was meandering and failed to contradict what I stated. Instead it supported the need for additional security.

You must have missed the part when Lamb, woman in charge of security, denied that refusal of security for Libya was due to budgetary concerns.

Stop playing politics this was a major failure that resulted in the death of an ambassador despite repeated request to maintain at minimum the current security that was there in August. The St Dept removed the

bin Laden is dead; but Al-Qaeda is still alive
Obama, by his relentless bragging, has stirred the pot of Muslim hatred. The mob in Egypt was chanting, "We're all Osamas, Obama!!" That indicates Bin Laden's death has done more to invigorate their terrorism than reduce it. If Obama wants credit for that, he can have it.

"Discouraged job seekers are one of the main reasons the national unemployment rate is falling. For instance, the jobless rate fell from 8.3 to 8.1 from July to August. The country added 96,000 jobs, but 368,000 stopped looking for work. That means they are no longer counted in the labor force, and therefore no longer unemployed. "
