Barack Obama, our next President

RealDave you are as pathetic as your Liberal cohort’s!! The Liberals/Democrats pukes not only played politics with the wars but claim the war was Lost!!
How about John Kerry saying Americans troops terrorize woman in children in the middle of the Night, Dick Durbin comparing U.S. military base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to Nazis, Soviet gulags and Cambodia's Pol Pot, Murtha Accused U.S. Marines of "Cold Blooded Murder" Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday the war in Iraq is "lost!! Liberals/Democrats are the architect of divisive campaigning during crisis!!

What future? Of not getting equal pay as men? Not having healthcare? If a baby is born with a disease or birth defect; that's a pre existing condition. No insurance.
Or will she prefer that her children not have access to public school?
Or is it that she doesn't her child to be a recipient of pell grants or student loans?
Or perhaps, she wants her raped daughter to bear the rapists baby?
Or maybe, she wants Medicare and Social Security abolished, so that she can not only have to take care of her children, but her elderly and infirm parents?
Or is that she doesn't believe in birth control and doesn't care if it's outlawed so she can remain a baby factory?
Oh the drauma........

It's possible, because there were so many Republicans who voted for President Obama; they're still republicans at heart, you know, if the black guy can't walk on water and heal wounds with his hands; then, he's no damn good.
You're really off the deep end.

Ok. Let's go over this again:
In 1999 Bill Clinton coerced Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to institute nationwide a subprime housing mortgage underwriting program.
This Democrat program created a mountain of what was called "toxic assets."
Like someone once said: You are entitled to your opinion but not your own facts!
Weep and learn moron!
With millions of people pursuing the "American dream" of home ownership, politicians (Sen. Phil Gramm (R, Texas), Rep. Jim Leach (R, Iowa), and Rep. Thomas J. Bliley, Jr.(R, Virginia), the co-sponsors of the Gramm–Leach–Bliley Act!) and regulators who dismantled a system of financial safeguards and then ignored warnings of impending disaster, and financial markets and institutions disregarding risk in their headlong pursuit of profit. It goes back at least to the year 2000 - when the dot-com boom went bust. It drove down stocks and sparked a recession and then came the attacks of September 11, 2001 - a body blow to the US economy. To hasten economic recovery, the US central bank, the Federal Reserve, headed by Alan Greenspan, used the most powerful weapon in its arsenal - it cut interest rates repeatedly. Lower rates made it easier for banks to lend and consumers to borrow and spend. It did stimulate the economy and it stimulated housing, because effectively the cost of investment was negative, you could borrow money for virtually nothing. Home-ownership is the bedrock of the American dream and US tax laws encourage home ownership by allowing people to deduct the interest they pay on their mortgages. US mortgages during the boom government-sponsored financial institutions such as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac contributed by underwriting mortgages and making it easier for people of modest means to put down the money for a home. From around 2001 and 2002, with mortgage interest rates at near-record lows, millions of Americans went shopping for homes. With demand soaring, the price of housing nearly doubled from 2000 to 2006. But many of those buyers couldn't really afford what they were getting. They wanted to buy a house they wanted a piece of the dream and the mortgage industry was encouraging them to buy. It got to the point where the brokers were offering mortgages to people who had little or no income, who somehow thought they could put these payments together. Sensing a potential bonanza, banks and mortgage companies began peddling loans to riskier segments of the population - especially low-income first-time homebuyers. These were called "sub-prime" mortgages. Many of the mortgages were adjustable-rate mortgages.
They were built so that in the first year your interest rate was low, but somewhere down the road, your interest rate jumped. But something else was at work as the housing bubble grew: The US government, under the sway of the Republican Party’s free-market, anti-regulation ideology, had begun to systematically dismantle rules and regulations established after the Great Depression of the 1930s. In 1999, the US congress repealed laws designed to stop financial crashes - saying markets should regulate themselves.

A new poll shows Republican Mitt Romney leading in Pennsylvania, a state that Republicans had all but written off just weeks ago but which is now listed as a toss up by the Real Clear Politics website.

Susquehanna Polling and Research the results of a poll it conducted for state party officials that shows Romney with a 49 percent to 45 percent lead over President Obama.

It's the first poll to show Romney leading among likely voters in the Keystone State.

President Barack Obama, during an interview to be shown on Comedy Central, has responded to a question about his administration's confused communication after the Benghazi attack, by saying:'If four Americans get killed, it’s not optimal.'

Obama was speaking to Jon Stewart of The Daily Show for a program to be broadcast tonight.

Stewart, a liberal whose young audience is full of potential voters prized by the Obama campaign, asked the president about his handling of the aftermath of the Benghazi attack.

I said law enforcement officers are NOT hired to prevent violent crimes.
I said nothing about changing the crime rate, catching offenders, or solving crimes which, as everyone but you idiots know, happens AFTER the violent crime has been committed.
God, you libs are ignorant.

I thought you said you were't born in the 50's?
Ward worked, June stayed home and did housework with a dress and heels on wearing an apron. She met Wally and Beaver at the door with baked cookies. Ward and June slept in twin beds!!!
I was born in the 50's and watched those shows, and that's the way it was then, my mother and most mothers stayed home, didn't drive etc. but it is not like that anymore and we're not going back.
You're last sentence about liberals insisting that you hate your neighbor is utter nonsense and a lie.
So what do you think about a woman who chooses to stay home, do housework in a dress, and meet her children at the door with cookies?

Romney already got his butt kicked on Libya. He demonstrates his total lack of experience in international affairs.
Before you blame people, you need to be sure. That takes time.
It is sad how Romney is using the deaths of these people for political purposes.
It is actually sad you are so gullible. Lying to the american people for political protection, as Obama did, is not presidential.

You must view Nixon as a national hero.

That's why they hate unions.
I saw an article about unions that said only about 52% of union people will vote for Obama.
You'd think the right would try and court the union vote since its already so close to even.
But no.
They want to destroy unions for the exact reason you stated.
Unions were once great institutioins, and they acomplished great things for workers. Now unions are ruled by greed and protect lazy, substandard workers.
