I am sticking my neck out here,But here it is IMHO!!
If any one is still curious re why Obama was not questioned by Romney
heres the real reasons...My source reveals the issue is Classified and
also of real Embarrassment to the Oval Offices.This was obviously a
question of why the Ambassador was in Benghazi at the worst possible
time 9/11 for any Americans to be in the Middle East?
The US,and the UK,were engaged in a covert operation concerning the
whereabouts of arms supplied to Libyan Rebels by the US,during the
Overthrow of Ghaddafi? Also the quest was tied to a Meeting with
the Turkish Govt,To expedite the transfer of the Weapons in question
to Syria,by Turkey,Leaving Obamas,and his Admin with clean hands as
it was Election time??
The investigation by Pickering,who incidentally has a Pro Iran record
among other issues..is an absolute Sham..Buying time for the Election
to be concluded etc..IMHO,Romney was informed it was a Classified issue
and he would be endangering Personel,and the entire operation by his
pressuring the POTUS,about what really took place.Forcing the POTUS
to either reveal it was a Clandestine Op,by the CIA,that failed,or
for the POTUS,to continue to lie about the facts of the matter????
You see, you answered your own question. Previous post to DB writer which was.

yaddda yadda... 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 ? NOOO, it never happens. So before all you try and grab some moral ground here, think of the reasons that would delay announcing to the world, you might know who did this and the last thing you want is to give warning to the enemy that you are coming. It is just plain stupid, for one 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.

those are the same obama supporters complaining about how everyone else should pay more taxes.
You're either a liar or abysmally ignorant. When Obama took office GDP was at -5.6% we moved out of the negative area by the third quarter of 2009 and since then growth in GDP have averaged 2.16% per quarter.
Corporations don't want government to stop spending dimwit, they just want a larger share to be shoveled their way.
The people who don't pay federal income taxes are retirees on Social Security, veterans on pensions or living on disability checks and those who even though working don't make enough to pay income taxes.
Another group that doesn't pay income taxes are millionaires and billionaires whose income is derived from investment income. They pay a capital gains tax which is half of what people who actually work for a living pay.
You're an idiot!

Ordinary income is usually guaranteed. If you work a certain amount of time, you are legally entitled to the pay that you were offered when you took the job. Capital gains involve risk. They are not guaranteed. You can invest your money and lose it all. Moreover, the year when you receive capital gains may not be the same as the years when they were earned.

It would appear that you are the idiot, or at the very least deliberately dishonest in your assertion.

I am from Michigan. I lost my job as many did while President Bush was running things. When I still had my job, our company was starting to build a plant in China. Our CEO then, said that China was building cities of empty buildings for companies to move into. That was during the Bush years.
President Obama became president and after some of the stuff that he passed, I got my job back. A couple of months back, our CEO now, said that despite what you hear on the news the economy is getting better in the USA, enough to start investing back into the United States. We are working tons of over time and there is no 40 hour work week in sight. We are filling up for next year. I work in the auto industry building machinery for the auto companies. Our economy is getting better because evertime I buy something , someone has to make it so there are more people at work starting up our economy again. It has started and for people to want to give our fruit of our labour to the top rich people by giving them huge tax breaks in a time where our debt is so high seems ridiculus. And with Romney, he is just someone telling you that he is going to help everybody but that doesnít add up. 95% of the tax break goes to the rich. And donít forget that we still have this hugh tax burden, guess who he wants to pay for it. That is right, you and I the middle class.
I would not be working right now if Romney were President. The auto industry would not be there. He has no plan for more jobs, look at his record. The only thing that he wants is to give big tax breaks to the rich and leave us holding the bag. Trickle down is mild to what he will do to us. If you donít believe what would have happened to the auto industry read this.

You're right, Bush started a war after 9-11 because 3000 people died from these insane muslim Islamist terrorists who attacked us on American soil. Too bad Obama wasn't in charge at the time, he wouldn't have started a war. He would just go on the Letterman show or sing us an Al Green song, or try to get Beyonce into a threesome with Moochelle. We know he wouldn't have started a war because HE'S A COWARDLY POS.
He did go into Afghanistan to get Bin Laden & then what? He declared him irrelevant & went off to Iraq which had nothing to do with 9-11.

Obama has shown that he will pursue & kill those that attack us.

If you want a coward, Romney hid out in France to avoid getting drafted.

You said all that yet stated nothing that disputes my point:

Where a capital gain can be documented ó when a builder spends ten years creating a housing development, for example ó then whatever that builder earns in the tenth year is a capital gain, not ordinary income. There is no guarantee in advance that the builder will ever recover his expenses, much less make a profit.

Most liberals couldn't balance thier checkbook much less understand finance beyond 3 decimal points.

Why are you still whining and blaming anyone besides Obama?
The effects of the recession last a long time.

Experts said it would take many years o fully recover.
