If you Repubs cannot come up with ANY difference between Romney's plans and what Bush did, how do you ever expect us Dems to vote to ruin the nation again? Didn't you people learn anything from the Depression of 2008?

The last part is right, President Obama wins again!

The rest of your slop? Peeeeeeeeyou!

Stinks!

But hey the clueless abound around here!

The country is better off,

Without Mitt Romney as President.

Let him play with his car elevator.

The winner will continue winning for the people!

That is something right wingers have never understood.

The country is not just billionaires to suck up to.

President Obama is real leadership for real people.

Have fun man. You get four more years to pick someone better to run in 2016.

Mitt? You guys ran Mitt? WTF were you thinking?

He sucks!

His plans change every hour!

And he only cares about the filthy rich. ONLY!

Now YOU! <----------gfy!

Churches who claim tax exempt status, and people like Romney who filter millions through their churches, who use those funds to influence ballot initiatives in other states should lose their status, pay taxes and be fined. This is not charitable; it's hateful. Imagine what good things the Mormons could do to help the poor with $28 million. Instead, they chose to use it to take away rights of gay people.
Stop being a dummy. Romney and the Mormons don't give a shyt about the poor.
using that logic, labor unions should pay taxes on the dues they extort from "members".....

note that churches are merely advocating positions consistent with their religious beliefs.....

Moderator Of VP Debate Caught In Conflict With Obama
Let's go back to 1991. Who was Barack Obama then? He was not President (2009), he was not a US Senator (2005-2008), he was not a state legislator (1997-2004), he was not a community organizer (1985-1988). He was a senior at Harvard Law, and got a cushy job in Chicago where he got paid to write his book.
So why was he a guest at the wedding of Martha Radditz who is scheduled to moderate tomorrow's Vice Presidential debate? Because he was a friend of the groom, the moderator's husband until 1997. The Daily Caller has the story about all of that AND the cover up by the left stream media.
http://www.bluegrassbulletin.com/2012/10/mode...
The so-called "mainstream" media is trying like hell to bury this story.
... go figure. It's just one of a multitude of stories that prove how far they will go to promote the unpopular so-called liberal agenda.
And how many more shoes will we hear drop over the next few years after the scum of Chicago is voted out? Will it leak out slowly like fecal incontinence or will it explode like ImaginaryDave's diarrhea?

I have a strong feeling that one helluva lot of people connected with this nightmare administration will be writing books and giving interviews sharing their horrors with the Jerk-In-Chief. Military people, like Stanley A. McChrystal or SEAL 6 members, might come out swinging about how the clueless "commander in chief" didn't know his kleenex from used TP. There is a groundswell of resentment waiting to burst FORWARD about the Boy Messiah.

Muslim prayer rugs are commonly being discovered in the desert along the Mexican border.
I wonder how many sleeper cells Obama and Holder have helped get into the country. I also wonder what they allowed them to bring in with them, like dirty bombs and things like that.
... suitcase nukes, too?
What would the Democrats do is a horrendous event occurred right before the election, like a city being devastated?
Anyone care to answer this question?
How about what it would take for the American people to regain control of their government after that?
It's like Thomas Sowell said: If Iran nuked NY City and you had friends and relatives their soaked in nuclear radiation and dying an agonizing death, how important would it be at that moment that America had done something really, really cool and elected a President with half-black skin and able to sing Al Green on David Letterman???

Our last President was elected as a contestant on American Idol. Our next President will be selected from all the graduates issuing from the school of Hard Knocks.

One Million Strong Against Mitt Romney in 2012
Via PoliticusUSA:

"The reality is that Roger Ailes and Fox News see Romney’s lack of details as one of his major weaknesses. They know it could cost him the election. They are trying their best to help Romney out, but the Republican nominee’s campaign is either too paranoid or stupid to accept their assistance.

It is looking like the real reason why Mitt Romney won’t give the details about his tax plan is because there aren’t any. Romney might actually be telling the truth when he states that he is going to figure it out later with the Congress, but figuring it out later with the Congress is also political code for,“we’re not going to pay for this,” and that is a truth that the Romney campaign desperately does not want to admit."

You are such a goober.

What the guy is wearing is an anti-Palin t-shirt sold on Zazzle for the 2008 election -weird. Both the anti-Palin slogan and why he would be wearing it.

The saying is suppose to be in the front of the t-shirt. He is wearing his turned around backwards -weird again

The guys has also taken a bumper sticker and put it on his backwards anti-Palin t-shirt. Even weirder.

You remain the queen of Onion-is-a-serious-news-site.

We have a historical deficit of leadership, too.

How often - if ever - have we seen Axelrod before Liberal MSM roundtable discussions? I can't recall if I have ever seen him slink out from the shadows and into the camera lights like this. He was just as animated as Hair-Plug Joe was in the VP debate. I sense they both had the same coach. Maybe Debbie Slutwazzerman. His appearances this week is a sign of desperation. Even the Oval Office gofer has to work for his pay now. Hillary is keeping her own counsel, too, because the Boy Messiah is poison from this day forward and Hillary has her eye on her future.

Romney continues to draw bigger and bigger crowds at campaign stops.

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-10-13/romn...

This worries me as a lefty. When you see big crowds at Obama events, they are usually bussed in labor union groups or highly organized activists (ACORN, for example).

In contrast, the Romney crows appear to be ordinary citizens, moms and dads, main street America.

I'm afraid this may be foreshadowing for the 2012 election. Hate to say it, but we may see a Republican landslide like in 2010 & another humiliating defeat for the occupy movement.

These are tough times for marxists, anarchists, petty criminals and other members of the 99 % movement.

This happened the day after the Boy Messiah was installed. Posters were searching for a way to describe this administration's activities and they found one. It got overused so the Topix moderators(or their software) picked up on it. "Hail Obama" is not a bad expression, though, right Topix?

The laughs have not stop since the debate -t-shirts, ads, photos, comparison to The Joker and tickle-me-Elmo.

However beyond the stupidity of his behavior, many people are totaling perturb that this person thought such topics as Iran becoming nuclear, abortion and the deficit was funny. If he disagreed shaking your head would have been more appropriate then acting like serious issues are funny.

Second-Biden proved that this admin (or are they not part of admin as they recently claimed) doesn't want to hear any viewpoints that conflicts with their own. The public comes to the awareness of WHO is the cause of the problems in DC.

So we are stuck -currently- with a POTUS who is totally disinterested in issues

Using that logic Obama's lack of details should sink him too.
