No one defended John Edwards; every Democrat, including myself that I knew felt he should have dropped out when his wife was diagnosed with cancer. Did he fool people? Yes, I used to like him myself, but to think that he thought he could run for President with that scandal looming in the background in addition to his wife knowing about it as well and still campaigned for him was ludicrous.
I think Dominic Strauss Kahn was a cad and a womanizer, but he may have been set up by Sarkozy; nevertheless the way the police handled that case was just pure showmanship and unnecessary.
Bill Clinton should have told the people that that was his personal life and that's it.$50 million wasted on that was ridiculous. But you rightwingers always waste the peoples money on stupid hearings. Everyone knew Bill Clinton was a cad, so what? Who did he hurt besides his wife and daughter?
If the Dems had any balls they would have stood up to them, instead they defended them.

Manufacturing will not be returning to the US; it's probably gone forever. As long as there is a demand for cheap goods at Walmart, etc. it will never happen. The only way that it would is if the Chinese considerably raised the cost of labor or the US slaps prohibitive tarriffs on imported goods. What will happen when the Chinese and other third world countries refuse to work for pennies?

Republicans are hypocrites they claim to hate the Chinese but are in bed with them when it comes to cheap labor. That gravy train will end and then companies will turn to Central America like Peppy's did and eventually to Africa, Pacific Islands, eventually they will run out of cheap labor and kill themselves before they have to part with one thin dime more.

Another rambling, paranoid and shrill post by Fire.
Meanwhile:
Gallup: Romney 50%, Obama 46% among likely voters.
Obama 47%-Romney 47% with Registered Voters.
WTF!

The ceo's are proud of it!

Not hiding it!

Look, folks, the problem with romanticizing anything is that by the very act of romanticizing it you remove it from the realm of humanity. You take Jesus, for instance. Here's the one thing the Jewish community hates more than pork: a Jew who's out there swingin' his dick around saying "Look at Me! Look at Me!" Most Jews know that as soon as you go around calling attention to yourself the Gentiles are going to come running over and take all your stuff. The same is true for soldiers, sailors, Marines, etc.. You start calling them all heroes well sooner of later somebody is going to blurt out that it was Cletus Fernager who shot Pat Tillman's head off or that Chris Stephens was a gay CIA agent in charge of a dirty little outpost in Libya designed to help (or hinder) Israel in their latest upcoming extravaganza. You see? Chris was Station Chief in Jerusalem for years and he's the agency head of the Iran desk. You romantic clowns push a little harder and you're going to make it impossible for Israel to attack Iran. Ha ha ha ha, the law of unintended and unromantic consequences.

A company that opens its business in a town that employs most of that towns population does have a responsibility for the good of society.

So tell me, why did Obama continue to lie about what happened even after he knew that it was a terrorist attack that killed those 4 people?
cause he wanted voters to think he defeated al qaeda, which is not true. all gains made by Bush are quickly unraveling under Obama's lack of leadership and pandering---but, but, but my middle name is Hussein. he's like Sally Fields at the Academy Awards gushing: "they like me, they really like me..."
