‎"I wish my moderate Republican friends would simply be honest. They all say theyíre voting for Romney because of his economic policies (tenuous and ill-formed as they are), and that they disagree with him on gay rights. Fine. Then look me in the eye, speak with a level clear voice, and say,'My taxes and take-home pay mean more than your fundamental civil rights, the sanctity of your marriage, your right to visit an ailing spouse in the hospital, your dignity as a citizen of this country, your healthcare, your right to inherit, the mental welfare and emotional well-being of your youth, and your very personhood.'

"Itís like voting for George Wallace during the Civil Rights movements, and apologizing for his racism. Youíre still complicit. Youíre still perpetuating anti-gay legislation and cultural homophobia. You donít get to walk away clean, because you say you 'disagree' with your candidate on these issues."

<quoted text>exactly, why the Theme from Sesame Street is more appropriate when Obama enters the room.
he's as yellow as Big Bird
like Oscar the Grouch when talking about Americans who disagree with him (but not Iranians with nuclear weapons)
could possibly pass as a cross between Bert and Ernie (at least as far as his sexual orientation)
and as invisible as Snuffalupagis at White House Security Briefings
Obama loves Sesame Street and hates Wall Street, as much as al Qaeda hates Wall Street.
Wall St. is what collapsed the entire world economy in 2008. You have Romnesia. Wall St. are the ones that made billions in profit as the US lost 726,000 jobs per month because of them.

LOL. So if Obama does win, is going to blame himself for four more miserable years.
I know how you revisionists think that history is some nonexistent thing, but this economic crisis will belong to George W Bush & the Republicans regardless how much you try to rewrite history.

How it will treat Obama's response is not yet known.

But this event is all Republican.

You know, the exact same people you want to put in charge again.

Boehner, McConnell, Cantor , Ryan were all there voting yes yes yes.

The only one who ever apologized was Eric Cantor.

When is Paul Ryan going to go on his apology tour??

161 Republican amendments to the ACA.
How the F8Ck did they get there? I mean, if they weren't allowed to participate.
The only people telling Republicans not to participate was the Republican leadership.
Here's how they got there:

In that article you'll read the exact quotes from Democrats as they negotiate for no effective oversight of their lunatic Marxist subprime housing loan program, which after the received this from the Republicans they supported the war in Iraq... for a while.

5.Repubs- Obama has hurt small business. Dems- Obama has passed 17 tax breaks for small business.
6. Obama has high unemployment. Dems- Before Obama took office the US was losing 726,000 jobs per month average for over 3 months in a row.
7. Obama is losing.

He still paid ten times more taxes than Obama. Maybe fifty times that of Biden. Donated ten times more to charity than Obama and 400 times more than Biden. You are the one who doesn't get it.
Donating to your cult is charity?

1) You are a liar. The Democrats did not fight for no oversight at all. They negotiated against more over signt. Why are you such a lying POS?
2) Where is that GD list!
No EFFECTIVE oversight, idiot. What the Democrats didn't want is something like the Director of OFHEO pointing out that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were illegally cooking their books to hide the CRA disaster that was known as far back as 2003 happening again in the public arena of Congress.
Notice that after the Democrats supported the war in Iraq, there were no more reports of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac illegally cooking their books... until the economy collapsed after 2 years of oversight by the Democrats.

So I see my daughter sleeping.
I remember she is legal now so I decide to impregnate her with my satan semen.
Her rosebud shines from the glare of the light on my helmet.
First a finger.
Then two

Morning Bell: Obama Administration Will Pay Companies to Violate the Law

The law: The law in question is called the WARN Act, and it requires that federal contractors send employees layoff notices 60 days before a plant closing or mass layoff.

The inconvenience: Massive defense spending cuts under sequestration are scheduled to hit on January 2, 2013. Defense contractors affected by the budget cuts would have to issue notice letters to employees by November 2 (four days before the election) to meet the January 2 start date for the spending cuts.

I know you want to suck on deez nuts, but they don't swing that way.

SHEEPLE ask, why doesn't Romney show his college transcripts or his passport records?

The answer is, There is NO CONTROVERSY concerning Mitt Romney's college transcripts or his passport records.
There IS controversy pertaining to both Obama's college transcripts and his passport records.

Oh, and about those tax returns, Romney said for you to GFY!
He doesn't have to show you shit and he is not going to.
Oh, he said for you to thank Obama for him, since Obama made it possible for him to tell you that.
