Is it true that Romney did a little fund raising in China and other foreign countries? Of course,“little” here is located on a heavily skewed scale. If he accepted foreign money for his campaign, would he be ineligible to serve as POTUS if elected.
Also, if elected, would Romney’s Presidential oath take precedent over his vow to obey Grover Norquist‘s budget requirements? Or would that be another conflict of interests?
And then there are Romney’s Tea Party obligations. Where would they fit in his grand scheme as POTUS?
These are questions that I hope he is asked at the debate this evening because it is important for voters to know exactly where Romney’s loyalties lie and in their specific order of commitment.
So many back room (or has he calls them “quiet room”) deals, so little public information!
Well, two out of three ain’t bad (maybe all three — depending on how inclusive Obama intended with his China challenges).
&fe ature=related

Obama ruled by not letting Romney get away with his bait-and-switch strategy and somehow managed to do it without using the word “liar.”

Romney looked appropriately like a shamed school boy when Obama reprimanded him for politicizing the embassy attack while it was still in the acute stage.

And Candy rocks! What a pro!

He would bankrupt you, send your job to China and deposit your pension into one of his offshore bank accounts. He would give your lawnmower to the illegal Mexican who landscapes one of his many exclusive vacation homes.

SEPTEMBER 19, 2012: White House Press Secretary Carney:“We Have No Evidence Of A Preplanned Or Premeditated Attack.”

You guys cannot wipe out what was stated for 8 days over a throw away comment that even WaPo questions as showing Obama says it was terrorist attack.

I just read the transcript of Obama's speech in the Rose Garden. He did refer to terrorism, but he did not say that it was a terrorist attack. He refered to religious intollerance, which would refer to the video because the video was against their religious leader. Now if he knew that it was a terrorist attack:
1) why did he then go on a talk show instead of dealing with the situation?
2) why did he then change the story to it being about a video?
3) why didn't he secure the crime scene and get people in there to investigate?
4) why did he allow his administration to continue to blame a video?
It's actually worse for him that he DID know that it was an act of terrorism and the only thing that he did about it was to invent a cover-up.
He got away with "tweeking" the truth about the Rose Garden comment tonight in this "soft format" debate - not so much next week when the debate will be focused entirely on foreign policy.

<quoted text>Mass. Senator John Kerry, Vietnam veteran and war hero, is commenting on all the lies that Rmoney told. By the way, he said Rmoney is getting killed in Mass. Nobody in Mass can stand him.
John Fing Kerry IS NOT A WAR HERO.
He joined the navy to avoid the draft.
At that time, only navy jet fighters were involved in Viet conflict.
Kerry thought he was safe with the Navy, but after he joined, he was pushed into a swift boat.

There was far more to the Libyan incident than the President felt was wise to make public. He went with the video story as a matter of national security and the safety of those remaining in Libya and other Middle East locations. The Republicans endangered many American lives by politicizing the incident for political gain.

Candy didn't do Obama no favors by interrupting and stating her opinion that Obama said it was terrorist attack early on -if that is how you choose to view that comment.

Now all Americans are thinking -Why did we hear about a video for 8 days?

Using that logic, more people were murdered in one day by terrorists in the U.S. under George Bush than during the entire Obama Presidency.

Yes, he did...and then he claimed they were still "investigating" it 14 days later when the State Department knew exactly what happened, how it happened and why it happened within 24 hours after the attack.

Admitting to a terrorist attack on 9/11 with four dead Americans including an ambassador wouldn't help his chances for reelection.

He had more pressing fundraiser events to attend anyway.
