It is an indisputable fact that children are better off when they have two parents involved in their lives. Studies show that a critical factor in healthy emotional development is the amount of contact that children have with both parents.
A two-parent home is the ideal but even close interaction with both parents in a divorce is crucial.
Robert Bauserman, PhD, of the Baltimore Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, reviewed 33 studies that examined 1,846 sole-custody and 814 joint-custody children. Bauserman found that children in joint-custody arrangements had fewer behavioral and emotional problems, higher self-esteem and better family relationships and school performance compared with those in sole-custody situations. The contact with both parents, he argues, is the key ingredient in kids' adjustment, he said.
There are always exceptions but it doesn't change the statistics.
Too many children today don't even know who their father is.
The question was about the assault weapons ban that expired. He didn't answer the question
And so it goes

Now, Candy says Obama knew from the start it wasn't.

CNN very somber at this time.

Cutting back on all fronts doesn't mean cutting back security where it is most needed.

The cuts were never even voted on.

It's the Democrats who want to gut the military down to the bare bones.

Get your hypocrisy straight.

What egg?

Obama just cheered Candy-vocally told her she was right that he said it was terrorism- so Obama knew from the start it was a terrorist attack.

How does Obama then explain to us about lying that was about a video for the next 8 days.

By tomorrow all journalist will be complaining bitterly about Candy doing this and I cannot wait for Carney to try to spin this.

So Sonic you were just going to go with the O'bama script and lie as long as O'bama did? Good for you. America does not like liars.

Clinton and Obama were never drafted. After four deferments, draft-dodger Rmoney decided to move to France because he felt he was "too important to go to Vietnam".

Obama didn't answer quite a few himself. Which is why I said there were more questions unanswered than answered.

It's always the same problem with town hall debates.

There's never enough time or proper moderating to give either candidate a chance to respond to the accusations made.

A wasted debate.

Sept. 25:

ABC airs the television show The View, in which Obama is asked about Clinton's statement. "We don't have all of the information yet so we are still gathering," he says. He says there is "no doubt" that "it wasn't just a mob action."

"What we do know is that the natural protests that arose because of the outrage over the video were used as an excuse by extremists to see if they can also directly harm U.S. interests," he says.

In a speech to the United Nations, Obama condemns the attacks and the American filmmaker, saying, "A crude and disgusting video sparked outrage throughout the Muslim world."

In testimony in front of Congress it was stated by two separate people that requests for security was made. I trust the people involved.

Clinton most certainly was a draft dodger and moved to England using the excuse of academia.

Obama could have joined the military voluntarily.

What makes either of them different than Romney?

Of course he blamed the video. On Univision, on Letterman, on The View and 6 times in front of the General Assembly at the UN two weeks later.

Bwahahaha! Blaming republicans for the turmoil in the Middle East and N. Africa? How f**king desperate can you be?

They hate America and Americans, and Barack O'Clusterf**k thinks he can appear in Cairo, make a speech, and all is well? Sometimes you libs are dumber than a bag of f**king air.

Oh, by the way: Why did Obama and Hillary Clinton appear in a $70,000, U.S.- funded ad on Pakistani television denouncing the anti-Islamic film and saying America "respects all faiths?"

Better check again about Clinton. O'bama never registered for the draft until he was running for president.
