We had to regain ground lost when Bush declared Bin Laden irrelevant & left Afghanistan to stagnate while he took resources to Iraq.

If Bush did hid job, Afghanistan would have been over when Obama took office.

Yes, and we had a President who sold drugs for arms for wars,
Say thanks to Ronnie for crack.

Oh yeah like totally!

The guy "is from" nowhere.

He parks his lying azzzzzzz where ever he can do the most harm.

These filthy right wingers:

There money is parked in the Cayman's or Switzerland or China companies.

They refuse to pay taxes to the USA.

Their boats are registered off shore.

They jump from state to state and nation to nation.

But when in trouble demand the US MILITARY bail them out: unpatriotic azzzzzholes.

Oh well it's over for four more for them: Obama wins again!

Media Skip 2,000th Afghan War Death On Obama's Watch

The latest incident of Afghan forces firing on NATO troops underscores the lack of media attention to an important milestone and the fact that most Afghan casualties have occurred on this president's watch.

[W]e marvel at the media's relative indifference to things that would be screaming headlines if they happened on the watch of President George W. Bush.

Mormons and Charity

Whether Mitt Romney wins the Republican nomination for the presidency or not, his serious-contender candidacy has sparked an explosion of empirical research on Mormons in the United States.

In due course, this research should serve not only to enhance public respect for the Mormon minority, but also to give Catholics some clues about how to strengthen their own faith community.

In a report issued in January 2012,“Mormons in America: Certain of Their Beliefs, Uncertain of Their Place in Society,” a research team representing the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life found that most Mormons are regular churchgoers and that more Mormons (73 percent) believe that “working to help the poor” is “essential to being a good Mormon”.

The numbers may be correct. You will recall Bush left Afghanistan, with Ben Laden talking on a radio hold up in a cave, to go and hunt for WMDs in Iraq. Sad for the 4 killed in Libya, but where was the outcry for the 4000 dead in Iraq looking for a Bush/Dick lie?

Can ANY of you Repubs explain this to us stupid Democrats?
.
Mr. Romney also has millions invested in a series of Bain funds that have a controlling stake in Sensata Technologies, a manufacturer of sensors and controls for vehicles, aircraft and electric motors that employs 4,000 workers in China. Since Bain took over the operation in 2006, its investment has quadrupled in value. Bain continues to own $2.6 billion worth of Sensata's shares.
Two years ago, Sensata bought an operation that made automobile sensors in Freeport, Ill. At the first meeting with the plant's 170 workers, Sensata managers announced that by the end of 2012 all the equipment and jobs would be relocated, mostly to Jiangsu Province. Workers have staged demonstrations, pleading for Mr. Romney to intervene on their behalf.

Chinese engineers, flown to Freeport for training on the equipment, described their salaries as a pittance compared with Freeport wages. Tom Gaulrapp, who has operated machines at the factory for 33 years, said he fears he will go bankrupt after he loses his job on Nov. 5.

"This goes to show the unbelievable hypocrisy of this man," he said of Mr. Romney. "He talks about how we need to get tough on China and stop China from taking our jobs, and then he is making money off shipping our jobs there."
