When the derisive environment dissipates after the derisive president leaves office, things will be a lot different.
Romney is known for successfully working with the opposition and getting things done.
Hopefully, we can take back the Senate and keep the House at the same time we elect a president with solutions.
You realize that if Romney wins & the Democrats act like the Republicans did under Obama that Rombewy can't do sh*t.

Right???

Of course not. Because to you the idea that YOUR party decided to vote against every Obama initiative instead help this country is not divisive at all.

You can unite two sides if one side refuses. YOUR party refused. YOUR party said winning the White House was more important than helping this country.

So cut the crap,. Carol.

The Stranger Among Us

A few years before I was born, my Dad met a stranger who was new to our small town. From the beginning, Dad was fascinated with this enchanting newcomer and soon invited him to live with our family. The stranger was quickly accepted and was around from then on.

As I grew up, I never questioned his place in my family. In my young mind, he had a special niche. My parents were complementary instructors: Mom taught me good from evil, and Dad taught me to obey. But the stranger... He was our storyteller. He would keep us spellbound for hours on end with adventures, mysteries and comedies.

If I wanted to know anything about politics, history or science, he always knew the answers about the past, understood the present and even seemed able to predict the future! He took my family to the first major league ball game. He made me laugh, and he made me cry. The stranger never stopped talking, but Dad didn't seem to mind.

Sometimes, Mom would get up quietly while the rest of us were shushing each other to listen to what he had to say, and she would go to the kitchen for peace and quiet.
(I wonder now if she ever prayed for the stranger to leave.)

Dad ruled our household with certain moral convictions, but the stranger never felt obligated to honor them. Profanity, for example, was not allowed in our home - not from us, our friends or any visitors. After our long time visitor stayed longer he became more daring however, and even got away with four-letter words that burned my ears and made my dad squirm and my mother blush. My Dad didn't permit the liberal use of alcohol but the stranger encouraged us to try it on a regular basis. He made cigarettes look cool, cigars manly, and pipes distinguished. He talked freely (much too freely!) about sex. His comments were sometimes blatant, sometimes suggestive, and generally embarrassing..

I now know that my early concepts about relationships were influenced strongly by the stranger. Time after time, he opposed the values of my parents, yet he was seldom rebuked... And NEVER asked to leave.

More than fifty years have passed since the stranger moved in with our family. He has blended right in and is not nearly as fascinating as he was at first. Still, if you could walk into my parents' den today, you would still find him sitting over in his corner, waiting for someone to listen to him talk and watch him draw his pictures.

His name?....

We just call him 'TV.'
He has a wife now....we call her 'Computer.'
Their first child is "Cell Phone".
Second child was named "I Pod "
Third child is Video Games

By the time wife was pregnant again, TV had lost ALL morals, and wanted Mom to have an abortion...

Now "atheism" and NO moral values has taken over TV's mind....Drugs passed by a greedy FDA help none...
Going crazy...and taking his caretakers with him.
Death Panels will probably take him before his time, anyway.

What were you saying about a "human" in the White House?

President Obama tells 'The Daily Show' host Jon Stewart' that the murder of four Americans during a terrorist attack on the US Consulate in Libya was 'not optimal.'

Nah, Democrats Don't Want a Welfare State...
America is in decline; fewer people are working; more are in poverty; economic growth is stagnant at best; more Americans than ever believe that our best days are behind us. But one thing in America is booming: welfare. Especially federal welfare.
[T]here are currently at least 83 federal programs that are “explicitly intended for people with low or limited income,” not including veterans’ programs. They fall into the categories of Health, Cash Aid, Food Assistance, Education, Housing & Development, Social Services, Employment & Training, and Energy Assistance.
Spending on federal welfare programs has exploded in recent years, increasing by 33% since 2008. In FY 2011, the federal government spent $746 billion on these programs–about one-fifth of all federal spending–while the states chipped in another $283 billion.
More people are in these programs because the Bush recession.

My God, lets not train people that are unemployed to get work.

If you bothered to look at these programs,they are designed to get people back to work & help the families in the meantime.

If you want fewer people on these programs,. quit electing people who create recessions instead of whining about it 24/7.

You tea bag imbeciles killed Stevens?
House Democrats issued a memo stating that since 2010, House Republicans have voted to reduce the embassy security funding requested by President Obama by approximately half a billion dollars. This was done despite security concerns and the need for updated or additional construction of security walls for some embassies and consulates such as the one in Benghazi.
On Face the Nation yesterday, Issa did say that if more money was truly needed for embassy security,“Congress would respond.” But he also stressed that he didn’t see money as the reason behind the security failures in Libya:“In the case of our committee, we’re — we’re recognizing that there was 2.2 billion dollars in a discretionary fund that could have been used for security, still could be used for security enhancements throughout the region. Plus, the DOD, the military, if we need these things to keep our diplomats safe in these countries, we need to start spending that money and not claim that we don’t have enough money.”

Issa went on to note that Charlene Lamb, the State Department official who fielded security requests from the Libya U.S. diplomatic officials had said that money wasn’t the reason for the slim security in Libya. Consider this exchange from the congressional hearing on Libya last week:


“It has been suggested that budget cuts are responsible for a lack of security in Benghazi, and I’d like to ask Miss Lamb,” said Representative Dana Rohrabacher (R., Calif.).“You made this decision personally. Was there any budget consideration and lack of budget which lead you not to increase the number of people in the security force there?”

“No, sir,” said Lamb.

Where was the Wookie when Zombie Obama was at the Al Smith Dinner in New York last evening?

If you compared Obama & Romney, it was easy to tell who actually put some effort into preparing and presentation at the charity event.

It was obvious this was a pain for Obama. He was with Catholics. It must have been a nightmare for the Muslim stooge.
