Barack Obama, our next President

I get it. TARP was Obama's plan all along.
WTF was I thinking. Wall Street knew in early *& mid 2008 that they would get bailed out. Not only that, they were too stupid to know McCain would favor TARP.
You get dumber every f*cking day.
Obama never had a plan other than to do what he's told to do so he can ride in the gold seat on the government gravy train.

You didn't answer the post. There are many statements in the post. Pick any out and argue why you think they are inaccurate.
I'll help you. Here's the post again:

Democrats' ludicrous subprime housing loan program that collapsed our economy after 2 years of direct oversight by the Democrats?
Thanks for clearing that up for us.
"It was pathetic, dishonest, and an outright blatant lie for Romney to blame those on Obama."
Can you kindly explain to us why the financial institutions that caused the economic collapse gave so much bribe money to Obama, in the entire Congress only Christopher Dodd received more than Obama; and why these financial institutions that collapsed our economy gave that much money to Obama; and why you think there is not a link between Obama becoming president and all the money these institutions that collapsed our economy and gave a fortune in bribe money to Obama getting all the money they lost in the economic collapse they caused back PLUS enough money to purchase banks that didn't participate in the Democrats' idiotic subprime loan program but were devastated by the economic collapse.
Please explain this.

A Wisconsin lawmaker lost the endorsement of Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan on Thursday after he claimed that “some girls, they rape so easy.”

Freshman Rep. Roger Rivard told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that his comments, first made back in December to Chetek Alert newspaper, had been taken out of context.

The newspaper quoted him as saying his father warned him "some girls rape easy,” meaning girls could decide they regretted a sexual encounter and call it rape.

Seeking to clarify the remarks on Wednesday, Rivard again repeated them.

"He (my father) also told me one thing,`If you do (have premarital sex), just remember, consensual sex can turn into rape in an awful hurry,'" Rivard told the Journal Sentinel. "Because all of a sudden a young lady gets pregnant and the parents are madder than a wet hen and she's not going to say,‘Oh, yeah, I was part of the program.' All that she has to say or the parents have to say is it was rape because she's underage. And he just said,`Remember, Roger, if you go down that road, some girls,' he said,‘they rape so easy.'"

Hours later, Rivard’s camp issued a clarification to the clarification, calling rape a “horrible act of violence.”

But the backlash was quick and severe. Rivard, who is locked in a tight race with Democratic opponent Stephen Smith, lost the support of key Republican figures, including Paul Ryan.

Ahmed Abu Khattala has been named the leader/mastermind of the attack on the Benghazi consulate. Khattala heads the Benghazi based Ansar al-Sharia group and helped Libyan rebels topple Gaddafi from power.

Blue Mountain Group of Wales was providing security at the so called compound using Libyans with basic security training who patrolled with batons and flashlights.

If you google Khattala's full name full name you'll find a fresh and insightful daily mail piece with excellent photos. The safe room is like some fkn joke. The pastoral setting of the consulate building is also interesting in a wtf sort of way.

Then, let's fire the entire department of Education and give that money directly to the states.
By the way, what does the Surgeon General really do?
The Department of Energy has been a dismal failure. How about we fire everyone there?

What?
Did your meds kick in all of a sudden?

You still haven't answered the post. Explain your viewpoint. I'll help you. Here's the post again for your convenient reference:

There are many statements in the post describing the requirement of very sophisticated training and intelligence.

Obama is completely out of touch. He's not in charge of anything. He says only what he's ordered to say. Everything is scripted for him. That's the legacy he'll leave. We have never had a president that was so inconsequential.
I smell Vallerie Jarrett. She decided we didn't want to offend the terrorists we knew were organizing in Libya, so she ordered the ambassador to be with very low security.
Now, let's get to the real issue:
It's obvious Al Qaeda trained their assault team very thuroughly in some mock-up facility of the exact location of the attack. All you have to do is observe the precision of their movements through the facility to deduce this. This was a very precisely planned attack requiring coordination of movement during action through multiple locations.
This requires precise timing. The timing is based on the location of the American ambassador. The assault team has to be assembled. They're not just hanging around at the assault point fully armed for weeks waiting for the ambassador to arrive. They know they will get a signal from somewhere that starts their attack. Their attack starts with the notification of everyone in the assault team, everyone involved in the placement of the heavy weapons, the diversionary fire team, and everyone involved in the communication between the different elements of the attack.
They have to know exactly when the ambassador will be at the consulate.
If they did not have information directly from the US government, and I suspect Vallerie Jarrett, then it would have been impossible for them to execute this type of assault. Without someone in either the State Department or the White House giving to Al Qaeda real-time location information of the American ambassador, they would have attempted to kill him at the usual location, the embassy in Tripoli.
This is too much like the very next "secret" mission of SEAL Team Six when their helicopter descended to disembark the SEAL team at the "secret" location right into the sights of a lone Taliban waiting for them with a rocket launcher.

Well it seem some of these libtards are being dishonest. Is anybody surprised? Seems Massachusett's job growth was at 50th before Romney took office and 28th when he left.

It seems that Romney vetoed 844 bills with 707 being overrode. But when you look at the facts he was working with a democrat majority legislature. Most of the vetoed bills were big spending programs the state could not afford. The democrats overrode them anyway.

I disagree. Romney is a liar about everything he says. You may think he appeared liberal in Mass. That's because the Democrats overrode his vetoes over 800 times. He was against emergency contraception for rape victims.
He has it in for women big time. Back to 1950, criminalizing abortion, jailing women, personhood, forcing to bear rapists babies, defunding planned parenthood. There were no women or minorities at Bain.
His contempt for women and minorities is ingrained in him from his religion.
When asked the question on assault weapons ban; he went on a stupid irrelevant tirade about single mothers!
That comes from Momonism.
Women will be so screwed if this maniac gets elected
I disagree; you and Obama are liars about everything you say. Fool!

Read it twice.... don't see anything I object to.

You do know that after Romney wins the election, we're going to look into a lot of things. That's just one of those things.

Your ass is hanging out the window. If you don't win this election, things could get as bad for the Democrats as when the most prominent Democrat in the entire country aside from the sitting president was convicted while spying for the Soviet Union. It took the Democrats about 20 years to recover from that one.

You shouldn't have joined the enemy and helped them during the Cold War. We still remember that, and how you spit on the servicemen returning from Vietnam.
You haven't changed. And, your act isn't as good as you think it it.
