But now the word FORWARD always reminds of Custer...probably because it's associated with Obama.

Colin Powell endorses Obama
Colin Powell is endorsing President Barack Obama in the election. He announced his decision Thursday on "CBS This Morning."
The former U.S. secretary of state, who served under President George W. Bush, made news four years ago when he pledged his support for Obama. Powell recently spoke with CNN's Fareed Zakaria about President Obama's foreign policy record.
I HAVE LOST ALL RESPECT FOR THIS GUY WHO IS VOTING

So white people endorsing Romney is because of skin?
Or are you just a racist f*ck.

At least at this point in time, you can draw a lot of similarity to Reagan. Although Reagan was more likeable, Romney is smarter. I think Romney is going to make an awesome president. He is too left for me, but this country badly needs someone that can work across aisles like Reagan and Clinton did. Like them or not, they both understood what it took to make Congress function. Obama has failed miserably on that front and of course the liberals cast blame everywhere else when they need to look in the mirror.
My sentiments exactly.

We must be related.

Carol makes the case for rapists. And you're worried about me? Next you'll say that the victim should be forced to marry her raper. The Christian Taliban, you are steering women into slavery and powerlessness. You're a sick woman. Tell me, if your got pregnant from a rapist, would you attempt to force her to have the baby?
Your nearly constant portrayals of Life as being something cheap makes you the sick woman. carol is talking it up while you talk it down.

carol is not making a case for rapists. She's making a case for the beauty, value and fantastic variety of Life You are telling another fairy tale from the dumpster. The other rats in there hang with you, fleas and all. Close the lid and party down, loser.

You are dumb!!!!
It is none of the American electorates business about;
- If president nobama stated his religious preference was Muslim?
- If president nobama stated he was a citizen if a country other than the United States?
- If president nobama had a lousy scholastic record?
Based on president nobama's sorry record as president one would think that his grades were lousy.

Nosey f*ck.

So what if Obama put down Muslim? Are you that much of a bigot?

Lets crucify a 8 year old boy if his mother moved to another county. Just how f*cking pathetic are you people that you would hold something like that against a little kid. Really how pathetic are you.

Obama graduate magna cum laude from Harvard, dipshit. Look it up to see what that means.

The college records would show that the Kenyan enrolled as a foreign student. The lizard isn't an American citizen. duh

Doesn't it concern you that terrorists are funding the Kenyan's campaign?

CAMPAIGN FINANCE: Obama campaign’s illegal foreign donations. If he were a Republican, this would lead the network news, complete with footage of reporters making illegal donations under fake names. Since he’s a Democrat, they’re doing their best to ignore it.

WHY didn't Democrats ever pass a budget?

It is their constitutional duty to do so and yet they have managed to evade that responsibility ...
The Budget

Congress must also pass the federal budget. According to the Constitution, Congress must approve all government spending. In other words, Congress has the power of the purse. Many congressional activities are related to spending and generating revenue. The U.S. government runs on a fiscal year, a twelve-month period used for accounting purposes. Currently, the fiscal years starts on the first day of October, but Congress has the power to change the start date. Congress must pass a budget for every fiscal year.

Because the budget is so complex, the president and Congress begin work on it as much as eighteen months before the start of a fiscal year. The president submits a budget proposal to Congress every January for the upcoming fiscal year. Congress then acts on the proposal, usually granting much of what the president wants. To prevent a government shutdown, Congress must pass the budget by the end of the fiscal year ...

The cost of an outsourced Barack Hussein Obama not releasing his hidden records and college transcripts are very clear. Therefore an usurper obama has calculated there are higher costs releasing any of his sealed records, destroying his career....

What's wrong with a photo ID? You need one to cash a check and to do a dozen everyday functions of American life. Why wouldn't someone be able to get a photo ID? Even if you don't drive, you can get a photo ID at driver's license office. Are you worried about someone who's nonambulatory or what?
8% of voters in PA don't have them.

There is one place in our county. 30 miles from a lot of them. They don't drive.
