But, see, Homer...that's exactly how I feel about Obama.
So which one of us is right?
Unless and until Romney has a chance to prove himself, all you have is Obama's dismal record and hiding from the press.
Me, I'm right.

Intelligence Shows No Planning for Benghazi Consulate Attack

Are you kidding here?
Watch the video of the attack again. Read the description of the coordinated elements of the attack, to include the main assault, diversionary fire, prevention of support from reaching the battle zone, and the coordination of all these elements.
The more the Democrats promote the ludicrous notion that this wasn't a preplanned attack by a well trained unit specifically trained for this particular attack in the exact facility, the more idiotic the Obama clown act appears.

Watch the video, idiot.

We even know where Al Qaeda trained for the attack.
Why hasn't Obama bombed the smithereens out of that facility in eastern Libya?
What is Obama waiting for?

Romney “balanced every budget without raising taxes.” Yes — Romney never raised personal income taxes. But — in order to balance the budget, Romney increased government fees by hundreds of millions of dollars.
http://www.factcheck.org/2012/06/romneys-jobs...
Every governor in Mass has to balance the budget; it's in the constitution.
Raising fees is straight out of the Republican governors handbook.
Our illustrious Gov. Rick Scott (who should be in prison, but got put in office by private prison owners), raised fees for everything, doubled the fee for auto registration etc.

Democracy Corps, the Democratic polling firm led by James Carville and Stan Greenberg, on Monday released a memo urging the Obama campaign to make a much bolder bid by selling some ideas. Their research found that not only do voters tune out when the President defends his record,

Touching of both cheeks was the protocol the Bush administration received on how to greet the King of Saudi Arabia. No kissing involved.



The Pittsburgh Tribune wrote an op-ed about Obama's bow.

"'The Bow’: A troubling metaphor:

"In the least, it was an embarrassing protocol faux pas; Mr. Obama is not the king’s subject but his equal. The Washington Times called it 'a shocking display of fealty to a foreign potentate.' But 'The Bow' actually was worse than that. It’s a troubling metaphor for a deferential presidency."

You really are quite the liar. Romney in a closed door fund raiser called the 47& irresponsible among other things.
He said:
"All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it -- that that's an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what.... These are people who pay no income tax....[M]y job is not to worry about those people. I'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives."
A long-winded misspoke..... Tee hee

So, what is inaccurate about that statement?
Everything Romney said in it appears to be accurate. Mostly, people on the government dole will vote to increase the govenment dole - which is what Obama is all about.
Obama's going to get 47 percent of the vote, at best. I think it will be more like 45 percent.
Obama loses in a landslide.

Everyday a new Mitt, every day a new Carol. No wonder she likes him.

Thanks for the chuckle Carol!!!
She is moving along with Romney, who knows tomorrow she may be a liberal. She is basically anybody but Obama.

Obama never said the word 'apology'. All he did was point out the mistakes made by the last administration. Mistakes that are an accepted part of the mainstream narrative.
So really, the whole right wing 'apology' thing stems from a right wing aversion to admitting they voted someone into office that is seen by most of the world as a complete foreign policy failure.
There are many examples of him apologising and appeasing, however I'll just use the most recent one to prove the point. The ads put out in Pakistan to apologise for a comical video, was not only unpresidented but displayed the weakness of this admins foreign policy.

It may be that the campaign hasn't cracked how to package what they have in mind. Overselling its ambition risks reminding voters of the ways Obama's first term failed to deliver on the transformational promise of his 2008 campaign. Noting that the jobs bill is in fact leftover work from last year, on the other hand, could lead to the conclusion that the President is out of steam and would only use another four years to serve up reheated hash — a poisonous notion to voters, according to the Democracy Corps findings. But even a poll that found Obama won the second debate produced a big majority who believe he wasn't specific about what he'd do, with more than six in 10 respondents telling CNN Obama didn't offer a clear plan.

In order to win, he may not need to. Getting it done will be a different story.

It's a "scared" house now...surely you wouldn't suggest that the "sacred" edifice, built by slaves, would be concerned about having such Stepford hypocrites as Mittens, Ann, and the five wee "entitled" lads? BTW, you do know that your Fauxlike email is a hoax?

In your own maind.
Just because you think that doesn't mean it's "mainstream."
Having the so-called "mainstream" media spew propaganda across all networks doesn't make it "an accepted part of the mainstream narrative."

For a case in point, your so-called "mainstream" media spent an uncountable number of broadcast hours trying to convince the American public the economic collapse was caused by the Republicans. The height of the duping of the American public with this obvious lie was 54 percent. Today, only about 45 percent of the American public believe that hogwash.
You'd call that little piece of propaganda "an accepted part of the mainstream narrative" too, wouldn't you?

Nope. We're not buying it. Your propaganda machine isn't working as well as it used to.
