Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

At least you have some base PRINCIPLES then.
ROMNEY/RYAN 2012!
There's nothing stopping small business from achieving their goals. Quit filling in a bunch of excuses for them. They live better when the middle class lives better. Guarantee you our customers are all middle class. When our middle class is strong again, we will see record profits. It takes small business stepping up to the plate and doing the right things to grow.

Wanted to address the issue of Arlen Specter:

Whenever I think of Arlen Specter, I remember this:

Arlen Specter, a pugnacious and prominent former Moderate in the U.S. Senate trying to make a place for himself at the table, and carve out a defining moment to mark his career.
His Legacy: He developed the **single-bullet theory in President John F. Kennedy's Assassination which came to be known as The "Majic-Bullet" Theory and was the essence of The Government's whole case against Lee Harvey Oswald being the lone nut assassin.
And then had the gall to sell this insult to The American People. A traitor indeed!
He sold his honor and integrity when he concocted the Majic-Bullet LIE,**a theory of ONE single bullet "behaving" in a manner that violated and defied all Laws of Physics.

THAT, and the contemptuous way in which he treated Michelle Bachmann. Total disrespect. Cantankerous old curmudgeon. May he R.I.P.

Romney claims he reached across the aisle in Mass; but he forgets to mention that 85% of the legislation was Democratic.
He used his veto pen 800 or so times and was overridden. He passed healthcare because he had a Democratic legislature, could he have done with a Republican one?
Mitt's FOS.
Romney brags about "his" healthcare plan in Massachusetts.

He tells how he & the Legislature a down around the campfire, held hands, & sang Kumbaya.

In reality, Romney vetoed 8 sections of the Mass. healthcare bill - all overridden.

Hope you bet on it!

China is poised to lose its place as the U.S.’s biggest creditor for the first time since the height of the financial crisis, blunting one of Mitt Romney’s favored attacks in the presidential campaign.

Chinese holdings of Treasuries rose 0.1 percent this year through August to $1.15 trillion, Treasury Department data on international capital flows released today show. Japan, a stronger ally of the U.S., raised its stake by 6 percent to $1.12 trillion, on pace to top the list of foreign creditors by January.

While Romney promises to label China a currency manipulator if he wins the election and says President Barack Obama has been too lenient in trade disputes, foreign demand is a reason Treasury yields remain close to record lows, reducing the cost of credit for the government, companies and individuals. Whoever wins Nov. 6 will depend on both nations to finance a budget deficit that surpassed $1 trillion for a fourth year in fiscal 2012. The candidates hold their second debate today

Carol pick up your messages. You have two.
Here's the first:

True, dem uses some strong language, rather colorful metaphors shall we say ... BUT
Don't be a hypocrite. Your denial and refusal to acknowledge your "counterparts" offensive comments should be an embarrassment to you.

Or don't the following Conservative remarks targeting a Liberal poster with all manner of racism and filth conflict with your Joan of Arc persona?

They are inane, base, pointless, unappealing and racist. But, that's OK with you, eh hypocrite pimping in the pulpit? Pluck the plank out of your Counterparts' eye before you go pointing at the speck in your opponents.

Self-Righteous Hypocrite!

These idiotic, offensive remarks and racial slurs don't add one gott-damn insightful point or purpose. They are nothing more than petty, petulant, pubescent palabra.

If you've grown so old that you cannot see these contradictions, then you've outgrown your own objective usefulness on this thread.
You've grown rigid in your own blind pretentious
pompousness.

These posts below 'wash' with you?
These vicious and malicious replies to Lily's comments were without provocation.
And these comments are just a few examples, a very short list.

Unless, of course, those are the best representatives you have. Because they represent by proxy what you would like to say to Lily, but have neither the boobs nor the ballz to do so, Mother Teresa.

And for most of them the main thing they did was what Romney is suggesting, NOT what the president has been doing. And they have also confronted the unions, put them in their place, and put a stop to them bankrupting their states!

"Hostile Workplace
Obama White House pays women less than men, records show

Female employees in the Obama White House make considerably less than their male colleagues, records show.

According to the 2011 annual report on White House staff, female employees earned a median annual salary of $60,000, which was about 18 percent less than the median salary for male employees ($71,000).

Calculating the median salary for each gender required some assumptions to be made based on the employee names. When unclear, every effort was taken to determine the appropriate gender.

The Obama campaign on Wednesday lashed out at presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney for his failure to immediately endorse the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Restoration Act, a controversial law enacted in 2009 that made it easier to file discrimination lawsuits."

Mitt Romney says he had a balance budget as Governor of Msssachusets.

I don't now what it s about Right Whiners & budgets but they seem to think a balanced budget means everything is paid for.

Not true. When Romney left office as Governor, MA had the pleasure of ranking number one!! Number one in state debt.

Romney can't do what he did as Governor as President to balance the budget.

As Gov, Romney drastically increased revenues in Massachusetts. But he has signed a pledge to the lobbyist Norquist that he won't raise taxes.

He said he balanced the Olympic budget. He did it by contacting every department of the federal govern,et begging for money. The federal government bailed our the Olympics, not Romney.

Really, number one in debt, number 47 in job creation - this is the Tea Party's candidate?

Really?

BTW, he had 11 women in his cabinet; but no women partners at Bain.
Everything Mitt does is a phony show, a fantasy created for his ultimate goal to run for President.
He was not even qualified to be Governor; he did not meet the residency requirements. He claims Mass is "his" state; no, it's not "his" state. He's a liar and a pretender.
