Obama Holds Advantage Heading Into Final Week
An Associated Press analysis finds President Obama "is poised to eke out a victory in the race for the 270 electoral votes needed to win re-election, having beaten back Republican Mitt Romney's attempts to convert momentum from the debates into support in all-important Ohio."
"While in a tight race with Obama for the popular vote, Romney continues to have fewer state-by-state paths than Obama to reach 270. Without Ohio's 18 electoral votes, Romney would need last-minute victories in nearly all the remaining up-for-grabs states and manage to pick off key states now leaning Obama's way, such as Iowa or Wisconsin."

It amazes me how little you rapepublicans know about your own candidate, don't you listen to what he says? Or, is it that you'll just vote for the ken doll, doesn't matter?
During a CNN debate at the height of the GOP primary, Mitt Romney was asked, in the context of the Joplin disaster and FEMA's cash crunch, whether the agency should be shuttered so that states can individually take over responsibility for disaster response.
"Absolutely," he said. "Every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that's the right direction. And if you can go even further, and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. Instead of thinking, in the federal budget, what we should cut, we should ask the opposite question, what should we keep?"
"Including disaster relief, though?" debate moderator John King asked Romney.
"We cannot -- we cannot afford to do those things without jeopardizing the future for our kids," Romney replied. "It is simply immoral, in my view, for us to continue to rack up larger and larger debts and pass them on to our kids, knowing full well that we'll all be dead and gone before it's paid off. It makes no sense at all."
(note in the video that he says; federal dollars should go into the private sector; you know what that means don't you? He'd allocate federal dollars to private contractors to make a profit; that's the Romney way. Remember when he said "I know where the big money is, it's in Washington, and, I know how to get it"
That was for the Olympics; that he claims "he" saved.!!What a crook)

Ok. Let's pretend it's the day after 9/11. You're the president. What do you do?
Surrender to the jihad?
Or, do you do the Bill Clinton thing and just lob a few cruise missiles in their general direction?
Or, do you accept that they started a war with the United States and fight them?
If you choose to fight them, where do you fight them?
Do you do the exact same thing in the exact same place against the ecact same enemy as the Soviets? And, what idiot would expect something different than what the Soviets experienced?
Bush did it differently. The Soviets lost. Bush won.
By the way, you need an education on what the conditions were prior to 9/11/2001. Search "Clinton CIA human rights purge" to discover how Clinton gutted the CIA.
Search "UN oil for food Saddam" to learn how Saddam Hussein stole the money from the UN's oil-for-food scam to rebuild his war machine.
Search "Valeerie Plame Iraq WMD" to learn how Valerie Plame, outed CIA employee, and wife of whistleblower Joseph Wilson, was not, as various right-wing sources have suggested, a paper-pushing desk jockey who perhaps wasnt even involved in covert operations. They were lying.
Valerie Plame, a career undercover officer, was the Director of Operations for the CIAs Joint Task Force on Iraq.
That's who Bill Clinton replaced all the CIA operatives that defeated the KGB and Soviet Union and won the Cold War with.
That's who's responsible for all of the US-generated intelligence on WMDs in Iraq. That's why the US didn't even have an operating foreign intelligence capability when Bush took office.
The other intelligence used came from France and Russia, mostly. They were rebuilding Saddam's war machine and being paid with money Saddam was stealing from the UN's oil-for-food scam. So, they fed the United States the intel that would maintain the UN sanctions and make necessary the UN's oil-for-food scam paying for all the weapons systems and hardened bunkers they were building for Saddam Hussein.
And, lo, and behold, you're one of the idiots and imbeciles suggesting we do the exact same thing in the exact same place against the exact same enemy as the Soveits, while we ignore Saddam and his rebuilt war machine in our rear.
An idiot knows that when the US left the Arabian Peninsula, Saddam was going to try to take the oil fields on the Arabian Peninsula again.
Wherever US forces went, the Arab jihad was going to go there and fight us. The only option we had was to choose where.
Bush got it right.
Today, Obama is tasked with sabotaging the democratic government established in Iraq by Bush, as well as the Karzai government in Afghanistan.
He's well on his way to accomplishing those goals.

Gunner doesn't want you to know that his 30 million figure includes aliens - both legal & illegal & those who opt to pay the fine.

While I think that banning soda was stupid, and I don't believe in legislating behavior; it is comical that gunner is still whining about it. He probably gulps down a few 2 litre bottles a day.

WTF is Obama hiding or in other words, what the MSM won't talk about.
Obama JUST HAPPENED to know 60s far-left radical revolutionary William Ayers, whose father JUST HAPPENED to be Thomas Ayers, who JUST HAPPENED to be a close friend of Obamas communist mentor Frank Marshall Davis, who JUST HAPPENED to work at the communist-sympathizing Chicago Defender with Vernon Jarrett, who JUST HAPPENED to later become the father-in-law of Iranian-born leftist Valerie Jarrett, who Obama JUST HAPPENED to choose as his closest White House advisor, and who JUST HAPPENED to have been CEO of Habitat Company, which JUST HAPPENED to manage public housing in Chicago, which JUST HAPPENED to get millions of dollars from the Illinois state legislature, and which JUST HAPPENED not to properly maintain the housingwhich eventually JUST HAPPENED to require demolition.
Valerie Jarrett also JUST HAPPENED to work for the city of Chicago, and JUST HAPPENED to hire Michelle LaVaughan Robinson (later Obama), who JUST HAPPENED to have worked at the Sidley Austin law firm, where former fugitive from the FBI Bernardine Dohrn also JUST HAPPENED to work, and where Barack Obama JUST HAPPENED to get a summer job.
Bernardine Dohrn JUST HAPPENED to be married to William Ayers, with whom she JUST HAPPENED to have hidden from the FBI at a San Francisco marina, along with Donald Warden, who JUST HAPPENED to change his name to Khalid al-Mansour, and Warden/al-Mansour JUST HAPPENED to be a mentor of Black Panther Party founders Huey Newton and Bobby Seale and a close associate of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, and al-Mansour JUST HAPPENED to be financial adviser to a Saudi Prince, who JUST HAPPENED to donate cash to Harvard, for which Obama JUST HAPPENED to get a critical letter of recommendation from Percy Sutton, who JUST HAPPENED to have been the attorney for Malcolm X, who JUST HAPPENED to know Kenyan politician Tom Mboya, who JUST HAPPENED to be a close friend of Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., who JUST HAPPENED to meet Malcolm X when he traveled to Kenya.
Obama, Sr. JUST HAPPENED to have his education at the University of Hawaii paid for by the Laubach Literacy Institute, which JUST HAPPENED to have been supported by Elizabeth Mooney Kirk, who JUST HAPPENED to be a friend of Malcolm X, who JUST HAPPENED to have been associated with the Nation of Islam, which was later headed by Louis Farrakhan, who just happens to live very close to Obamas Chicago mansion, which also just happens to be located very close to the residence of William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, who just happen to have been occasional baby-sitters for Malia and Natasha Obama, whose parents just happen not to mind exposing their daughters to bomb-making communists.
After attending Occidental College and Columbia University, where he JUST HAPPENED to have foreign Muslim roommates, Obama moved to Chicago to work for the Industrial Areas Foundation, an organization that JUST HAPPENED to have been founded by Marxist and radical agitator Saul the Red Alinsky, author of Rules for Radicals, who JUST HAPPENED to be the topic of Hillary Rodham Clintons thesis at Wellesley College, and Obamas $25,000 salary at IAF JUST HAPPENED to be funded by a grant from the Woods Fund, which was founded by the Woods family, whose Sahara Coal company JUST HAPPENED to provide coal to Commonwealth Edison, whose CEO JUST HAPPENED to be Thomas Ayers, whose son William Ayers JUST HAPPENED to serve on the board of the Woods Fund, along with Obama.
It all JUST HAPPENED.

Let's get to the critical issue today.
WHO told Susan Rice what to say over all the television networks and at the UN?
It obviously wasn't Obama.
Who's really in charge in the White House?
That will also be the person who ordered the Americans in Benghazi to be hung out to dry.
The empty chair didn't do anything. They probably didn't even wake him up.

It's deflection and racism. These ignorant goobers keep scratching their heads in wonderment, asking themselves "how did a black guy become head of the Harvard Law Review? How did he get into Columbia? How did he become President?" Must have been given a pass because he's black, that affirmative action stuff again!
They wouldn't ask a white candidate those things; they don't call Joe Biden a socialist.
Where's the tax returns? Mitt has managed to dodge that question.
Meanwhile, he endorsed Murderdock, the rapists will of God candidate.
And Akin, who has been arrested 3 times for harrassing abortion clinics, had to be dragged away as he refused to walk. He changed his name to run for office.
This is the future of the Rapepublican Party. Rapists and crooks.

Oh, a very "secrue" location eh? Where are your "recorcds"?
Here's your candidate, laying out plans to steal federal dollars:
A Romney official reaffirmed the former governor's position Sunday evening in an email.
"Gov. Romney wants to ensure states, who are the first responders and are in the best position to aid impacted individuals and communities, have the resources and assistance they need to cope with natural disasters," the Romney official said.
UPDATE II Monday, 9:10 a.m.--
The Washington Post's Greg Sargent adds: "Theres another nugget here worth highlighting, though. In that appearance, Romney also suggested it would be 'even better' to send any and all responsibilities of the federal government 'to the private sector,' disaster response included. So: Romney essentially favored privatizing disaster response."
#787243 Oct 29, 2012
The coincidences not discussed go on and on.
Obama also worked on voter registration drives in Chicago in the 1980s and JUST HAPPENED to work with leftist political groups like the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) and Socialist International (SI), through which Obama met Carl Davidson, who JUST HAPPENED to travel to Cuba during the Vietnam War to sabotage the U.S. war effort, and who JUST HAPPENED to be a former member of the SDS and a member of the Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism, which JUST HAPPENED to sponsor a 2002 anti-war rally at which Obama spoke, and which JUST HAPPENED to have been organized by Marilyn Katz, a former SDS activist and later public relations consultant who JUST HAPPENED to be a long-time friend of Obamas political hatchet man, David Axelrod.
Obama joined Trinity United Church of Christ (TUCC), whose pastor was Reverend Jeremiah Wright, a fiery orator who JUST HAPPENED to preach Marxism and Black Liberation Theology and who delivered anti-white, anti-Jew, and anti-American sermons, which Obama JUST HAPPENED never to hear because he JUST HAPPENED to miss church only on the days when Wright was at his most enthusiastic, and Obama JUST HAPPENED never to notice that Oprah Winfrey left the church because it was too radical, and JUST HAPPENED never to notice that the church gave the vile anti-Semitic Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan a lifetime achievement award.
Although no one had ever heard of him at the time, Obama JUST HAPPENED to receive an impossible-to-believe $125,000 advance to write a book about race relations, which he JUST HAPPENED to fail to write while using the cash to vacation in Bali with his wife Michelle, and despite his record of
non-writing he JUST HAPPENED to receive a second advance, for $40,000, from another publisher, and he eventually completed a manuscript called Dreams From My Father, which JUST HAPPENED to strongly reflect the writing style of William Ayers, who JUST HAPPENED to trample on an American flag for the cover photograph of the popular Chicago magazine, which Obama JUST HAPPENED never to see even though it appeared on newsstands throughout the city.
Obama was hired by the law firm Miner, Banhill and Galland, which JUST HAPPENED to specialize in negotiating state government contracts to develop low-income housing, and which JUST HAPPENED to deal with now-imprisoned Tony Rezko and his firm Rezar, and with slumlord Valerie Jarrett, and the law firms Judson Miner JUST HAPPENED to have been a classmate of Bernardine Dohrn, wife of William Ayers.
In 1994 Obama represented ACORN and another plaintiff in a lawsuit against Citibank for denying mortgages to blacks (Buycks-Roberson v. Citibank Federal Savings Bank), and the lawsuit JUST HAPPENED to result in banks being blackmailed into approving subprime loans for poor credit risks, a trend which JUST HAPPENED to spread nationwide, and which JUST HAPPENED to lead to the collapse of the housing bubble, which JUST HAPPENED to help Obama defeat John McCain in the 2008 presidential election.
In 1996 Obama ran for the Illinois State Senate and joined the New Party, which JUST HAPPENED to promote Marxism, and Obama was supported by Dr. Quentin Yong, a socialist who JUST HAPPENED to support a government takeover of the health care system.
It all JUST happened.

Got an explanation for this, dupe?
(quoted text is from one of your idiot colleagues promoting the empty chair be re-elected)
"I don't know how many times I have to repeat myself, when police investigate a crime which is the crucial time period in solving that crime ? Answer = in first 24 hrs"
We had real-time communication with the elements engaged and live video. You don't get that with the type of investigations you reference. You're attempting to compare apples with the White House hanging the Ambassador and 3 other Americans out to dry, and WATCHING IT ON LIVE VIDEO.
Besides, the FBI has the recordings made in the consulate facility. I wonder what's on those recordings. You can bet Eric Holder will keep that a secret. Don't want any October "surprise".
"Secondly, when a terror attack happens against the US or any western country for that matter. What happens ?? Every crack pot terror organisation claims they did it."
Name the terrorist organizations that claimed credit for the attempt to kidnap the US Ambassador that they bungled and killed the intended abductee.
"Thirdly, unless you are a complete and utter dickhead, if you had a hot lead on a case do you every see the police announce this on the TV before they act on it?"
... and that explains why the Force Recon Marines who can be armed and ready to deploy 10 minutes after you wake them weren't sent from Sigonella, Italy, where they had been moved to for an event just like this.
Note to Obama (or, whomever is in charge in the White House): Benghazi Consulate Could Have Used Marines With Bayonets.
"take lessons from Israel. Someone bombs them, you see it on tv but apart from the announcement condeming the attack thats it!!! Next day on the news Israeli jets just bombed the crap out of some terrorist hide out. No warnings, no nothing. So they don't give publicity to any terror organisation because it defeats the purpose and only motivates them to do more attacks."
We know wher ethe facility is in eastern Libya where Al Qaeda trained for the mission to kidnap the US Ambassador that they botched and killed their intended target for abduction. So, I have just one question about that:
Why hasn't Obama taken a lesson from Israel and bombed that Al Qaeda facility to smithereens?
But, the most important question about what happened after Al Qaeda killed Stevens and 3 other Americans in their attempt to kidnap him is:
WHO TOLD SUSAN RICE WHAT TO SAY ALL OVER THE TELEVISION NETWORKS AND AT THE UN?
It obviously wasn't Obama.
Tell us who's actually in charge in the White House.
... well, homeo?

Liberals talk about what Romney allegedly said in high school when this all coincidentally JUST HAPPENED:
In late 1999 Obama purportedly engaged in homosexual activities and cocaine-snorting in the back of a limousine with a man named Larry Sinclair, who claims he was contacted in late 2007 by Donald Young, who JUST HAPPENED to be the gay choir director of Obamas Chicago church and who shared information with Sinclair about Obama, and Young JUST HAPPENED to be murdered on December 23, 2007, just weeks after Larry Bland, another gay member of the church, JUST HAPPENED to be murdered, and both murders JUST HAPPENED to have never been solved. In 2008 Sinclair held a press conference to discuss his claims, and JUST HAPPENED to be arrested immediately after the event, based on a warrant issued by Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden, who just happens to be the son of Joe Biden.
In 2003 Obama and his wife attended a dinner in honor of Rashid Khalidi, who JUST HAPPENED to be a former PLO operative, harsh critic of Israel, and advocate of Palestinian rights, and who Obama claims he does not know, even though the Obamas JUST HAPPENED to have dined more than once at the home of Khalidi and his wife, Mona, and JUST HAPPENED to have used them as occasional baby-sitters. Obama reportedly praised Khalidi at the decidedly anti-Semitic event, which William Ayers JUST HAPPENED to also attend, and the event Obama pretends he never attended was sponsored by the Arab American Action Network, to which Obama JUST HAPPENED to have funneled cash while serving on the board of the Woods Fund with William Ayers, and one speaker at the dinner remarked that if Palestinians cannot secure a return of their land, Israel will never see a day of peace, and entertainment at the dinner included a Muslim childrens dance whose performances JUST HAPPENED to include simulated beheadings with fake swords, and stomping on American, Israeli, and British flags, and Obama allegedly told the audience that Israel has no God-given right to occupy Palestine and there has been genocide against the Palestinian people by (the) Israelis, and the Los Angeles Times has a videotape of the event but just happens to refuse to make it public.
In the 2004 Illinois Democrat primary race for the U.S. Senate, front-runner Blair Hull JUST HAPPENED to be forced out of the race after David Axelrod JUST HAPPENED to manage to get Hulls sealed divorce records unsealed, which JUST HAPPENED to enable Obama to win the primary, so he could face popular Republican Jack Ryan, whose sealed child custody records from his divorce JUST HAPPENED to become unsealed, forcing Ryan to withdraw from the race, which JUST HAPPENED to enable the unqualified Obama to waltz into the U.S. Senate, where, after a mere 143 days of work, he JUST HAPPENED to decide he was qualified to run for President of the United States.
It all JUST HAPPENED, but let's talk about important stuff like why Romney drove with a dog in a pet crate on top of his car. Or how Paul Ryan's hair makes him look like Eddie Munster. Americans have a right to know.
