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.

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.

Obama Foreign Policy Critics Undercut by Powell Support
1 hour ago from Business Week
President Barack Obama, assailed by Mitt Romney and other Republicans over defense priorities and foreign policy, got help from two former Republican secretaries of state who undercut a main line of attack.

Retired Army General Colin Powell, who was secretary of state under former President George W. Bush, yesterday endorsed Obama's re-election and criticized what he said were Romney's changing positions on international affairs.

"Sometimes I don't sense that he has thought through these issues as thoroughly as he should have," Powell, who also backed Obama in 2008, said of the Republican nominee during an interview on the "CBS This Morning" program.

John Sununu, a co-chairman of Romney's presidential campaign, last night questioned Powell's motive for supporting the president - only to back down hours later.

Sununu, former governor of New Hampshire, one of the swing states that will determine the outcome of the Nov. 6 election, said on CNN that "when you take a look at Colin Powell, you have to wonder if that's an endorsement based on issues, or whether he's got a slightly different reason for preferring President Obama."

"Your Own Race" ???

Asked by CNN's Piers Morgan the reason, Sununu, 73, said: "Well, I think when you have somebody of your own race that you're proud of being president of the United States, I applaud Colin for standing with him."


Hours later, Sununu issued a statement to National Review Online about Powell's endorsement, saying, "I do not doubt that it was based on anything but his support of the president's policies."

Separately yesterday, Condoleezza Rice, Powell's successor in the Bush administration, distanced herself from criticism leveled by Romney and other Republicans that Obama's response to the attack on a U.S. consulate in Libya, which killed U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans, amounted to "denial" of what occurred .
