What medical degree have you confirmed? Mittens seems to think the Emergency Room should be the new "Doc in a Box." And you will be in the line of entitled complainers when you have to wait more than 15 minutes to see the physician for your neck pain rated at 10 out of 10 than you've had for two weeks. Oh, and that doctor you see? He will be an international fourth year resident because there are not enough student loans or incentives available for American students to attend medical school. Unless, of course, you are lucky enough to come under my care.
At least you'll see a doctor.

ObamaCare's 15 member panel of "experts" may just say: "Nope, sorry. Here's a pill."

Q: Did Barack and Michelle Obama “surrender” their law licenses to avoid ethics charges?
A: No. A court official confirms that no public disciplinary proceeding has ever been brought against either of them, contrary to a false Internet rumor. By voluntarily inactivating their licenses, they avoid a requirement to take continuing education classes and pay hundreds of dollars in annual fees. Both could practice law again if they chose to do so.
hmmmmmm
Lucky for them, huh?

Except we both know it'll be a year or two of appearing on The View, Letterman, and whatever colleges and universities are dumb enough to pay the exorbitant fee to hear The One and wifey whine about how the U.S. is still much too racist.

Oh, and Michelle will no longer be proud of her country.

Looks like the jobs created won. That's business for ya.
Oh yes, business as usual:

Six people were arrested Wednesday morning at a north central Illinois plant run by Bain Capital-owned Sensata Technologies, where 170 workers are set to lose their jobs by the end of the year.

The closing of the Sensata plant has turned into an unlikely presidential campaign issue, as the lost manufacturing jobs will be relocated to China. Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney helped found Bain Capital, and several workers from Sensata have pleaded with the former Massachusetts governor to intervene at the private equity firm and prevent the offshoring of their jobs, so far without success.

According to 99 Uniting, a progressive group involved with several Sensata employees, the arrestees Wednesday included the mother of a current Sensata worker, as well as a former Sensata worker and her son, all of whom had taken part in a sit-in inside the plant. The Freeport, Ill., police department confirmed to The Huffington Post that six people were arrested in all.

The arrestees had come to the plant to present a manager with a petition regarding the severance packages of soon-to-be-laid-off workers, according to Tom Gaulrapp, who's set to lose his job on Nov. 5. Gaulrapp said they weren't able to meet with a manager, so they refused to leave and sat in the lobby. The police soon arrived.

Mitt Romney's eldest son weighed in on the second presidential debate on Wednesday, joking that the debate's contentious nature made him want to "take a swing" at President Obama.

Coal Miners Take Obama to Task over False Advertising

Ohio coal miners are mad, and they aren't going to take it any more. What's got them spun up? Barack Obama. In a press conference held Friday, miners working for the American Energy Corp. told Obama to stop the "absolute lies" regarding their participation in a Romney campaign event.

As reported by The Intelligencer, miners at the press conference said they were there to "express their opposition to Obama's energy and environmental policies, which they believe threaten their jobs."

Obama Lies About Oil & Gas Production on Public Land

Contrary to President Obamas assertions, Romneys telling the truth when he says,Production of oil on public land is down 14 percent and production of gas on public land is down 9 percent. Thats because energy production on federal lands is down compared to 2010, according to the Energy Information Administration.(Juliet Eilperin,The Truth About Oil And Gas Production On Public Land, The Washington Post s Fact Check, 10/16/12)

Marc Leder owes Mitt Romney. The last time the private equity executive hosted a fundraiser for Romney, the former Massachusetts governor used the opportunity to share with donors some of his thoughts about 47 percent of the country.

On Saturday night, Leder will host another fundraiser for Romney, according to three sources familiar with the event.

The Romney campaign has since become more aggressive about banning video and audio at fundraisers so that Romney can speak freely.

Wolf Blitzer after last night's debate:

"When we dig deeper into the numbers, we're seeing Romney did score points with viewers tonight.

Look at this.

58% of debate watchers say Romney would better handle the economy. 40% say President Obama would. That's issue number one.

49% say Romney would better handle health care, compared to 46% for President Obama.

We also asked who would better handle the issue of taxes. 51% say Romney; 44% say President Obama.

59% say Romney would do a better job on the deficit. 36% say President Obama would do a better job on the deficit.

*WOW*

You are the fool in quoting rhetoric. Thank you for the comic relief.
Here's you some "comic relief" bub :)

A woman in a hot air balloon realized she was lost. She lowered altitude and spotted a man in a boat below. She shouted to him, "Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don't know where I am."

The man consulted his portable GPS and replied, "You're in a hot air balloon approximately 30 feet above a ground elevation of 2,346 feet above sea level. You are 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and 100 degrees, 49.09 minutes west longitude."

She rolled her eyes and said, "You must be a Republican."

"I am," replied the man. "How did you know?"

"Well," answered the balloonist, "everything you told me is technically correct, but I have no idea what to make of your information, and I'm still lost. Frankly, you've not been much help to me."

The man smiled and responded, "You must be a Democrat."

"I am," replied the balloonist. "But how did you know?"

"Well," said the man, "You don't know where you are or where you're going. You've risen to where you are due to a large quantity of hot air. You've made a promise that you have no idea how to keep, and now you expect ME to solve your problem. You're in EXACTLY the same position you were in before we met, but somehow, now, it's MY fault.

Romney's a number's guy and rarely wrong on his facts. And he's honest from what I see (past the MSM).

Obama says whatever is good for the moment, as we saw last night, and always drags someone along. I bet Candy Crowley is never asked to be a moderator again.

If he's re-elected, massive inflation will shut down the banks within 24 months and the FDIC cannot back up their insurance. Jobs? They'll be no jobs. Have you heard a plan from Obama other than 'train the youth of today?'

Al Qaeda and the Taliban are stronger than ever and bolder than ever. We're not safe. One of them will get through eventually.
