Sheer conjecture.

Gorbachev was a true reformer, not a traditional communist.

And that is proven by the attempt of the hardliners to overthrow him in a coup.

Maybe the Washington Post knows what it's saying?

September 2011- FEMA’s Disaster Relief Fund had just $175 million and will likely be empty next week for the first time in its history.

Even some liberals like Ron Paul. He said FEMA is the real disaster and it's time to "bury the agency".

Does he know what he's saying?

You're criticizing Romney for moving to the center?
I wish Obama had moved an inch toward the center.
By closing the loopholes, the rich will end up paying more in taxes anyway as Romney said. Loopholes are the enemy when it comes to the wealthy and government revenues - not raising taxes even more including capital gains.
Center is a good place for any president to be. It brings both sides together. Even a little right or left of center is good.
So you can go ahead and vote for Romney. He will not waver in his conviction of shrinking the size of the federal government and giving more power back to the states - and putting more of your hard-earned money back in your wallet.

They wouldn't ask a white candidate those things; they don't call Joe Biden a socialist.op,
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.

I agree that the Executive office should be held by a moderate. Romney has made both moderate and conservative pledges - which way is he going if he is elected? Nobody knows. Don't make promises that aren't yours to keep, carol.
Cutting deductions will result in a net increase in taxation for middle class families, while lowering tax rates will result in lower taxation for the wealthy - SIGNIFICANTLY lower, even including the elimination of deductions. As complex as the tax code is, that math is simple.

Has the Muslim Brotherhood Infiltrated the Romney Campaign?
Of course, these spurious claims against Ramadan, Norquist and Salem are just as baseless and wrong as their attacks against the Obama administration and the Muslim-Americans serving in it.
But while extremists like Geller, Gaffney, Horowitz and others are quick to attack Obama with such bogus charges, for some reason it seems unlikely Romney will receive similar treatment.

Benedict Hussein Obama gives aid and comfort to the enemy

Beyond Impeachment: Obama Treasonous over Benghazi
By Roger L Simon

Is it treason when you put your own reelection above the good of your country and the lives of its citizens? If so, Barack Obama committed treason in leaving the four Americans to die in Benghazi.

Our Constitution defines it this way:“Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.”

Aid and comfort to the enemy — what is that?

When you ascribe an action to the protest of a video when it is actuality a planned terror attack by Ansar al-Shariah, an established offshoot of al-Qaeda (if that’s not your “enemy,” then who)— and you knew that all along, you watched it live without doing anything, and then you told those who wanted to help to “stand down”? Meanwhile, our government may have been conspiring to arm another offshoot of al-Qaeda in Syria.

How much more treasonous can you get? Benedict Arnold was a piker.

Indeed, the discussion of Benghazi has just begun. And don’t be surprised if the conversation escalates from impeachment to treason very quickly. In fact, if Obama wins reelection you can bet on it. The cries of treason will be unstoppable. Not even if the mainstream media will be able to deny them.

As Pat Caddell noted, those same media lapdogs have muzzled themselves in an unprecedented manner in this matter, but our Canadian friends at least have some semblance of honor left, writing:

It is undoubtedly worse than Obama simply turned his back on cornered American citizens in a foreign land, knowing undoubtedly they would die. But that Barack did so without any compelling reason—except political—is beyond evil. Only a moral monster would have made that decision when it was within his powers to possibly save them with almost no effort of his own.
It JUST happened

We just had another 9-11, and Obama failed and is still failing. If his mishandling of Benghazi doesn't demonstrate how incompetent and dishonest he is, well then your head will forever be buried in the sand.

I think military service experience can be beneficial for a commander in chief, but I do not think its mandatory or preferential. In the case of McCain, I felt that he looked at everything militarily and would have made the choice for military action before anything else, he still jumps the gun and salivates at the thought of war.
Not everyone is cut out for it.
