A ban on personal risk assessment and self-defense is a loss of liberty. Want to ban an act in a pro-life fashion, ban driving. We'll still have feet...
Allowing the insurance industry to dictate medical costs and level of care is anything but pro-life, and according to millions with pre-existing conditions, Obamacare works GREAT.
Job-loss due to outsourcing leaves millions uninsured as well.
Facts matter.

Obamacare will bankrupt the nation.
Further the pro choice element is against regulating the abortion industry which means women now die from legal abortions instead of illegal abortions and of course we have those babies that survive botched illegal abortions that are murdered by neglect.I believe the term for those rather extremely late term abortions is called infanticide.

And which party launched the era of trillion dollar deficits?
Here' a hint. It bean with a greasy-haired, jellybean-muncher who between every other statement muttered the word, "Well?"
Your party does all in its power to beat down the poor. By attacking minimum wage, welfare, uneployment benefits, etc.
If they start starving, we'll know who created the economic climate that brought it about.
Try to remember this is your mess Obama is cleaning up.
Reagan's biggest deficit was $221 billion....

Hussein Obama has the only four $1 trillion deficits in US history.....

One guy cannot work with any of 300 republicans, what kind of knucklehead are you? People who blame everyone else for their own failures are hopeless. Having one of them as president is a horrible thought. How come Clinton succeeded (with Gingrich no less) where Obama has failed. Answer, Clinton knew how to approach non-partisan politics, where as Obama's kiss-my-ass approach was not effective.
Don't worry, I already know what you are, an Obama apologizer. Can't face the failures so you make excuses, blame everyone except the responsible party. Honestly if he wasn't up to the task, why did he seek the job. Hope and change was cheeky for liberal kool aid drinkers but that crap does not sway Congress.

I can think of one treasonous coward in particular.
One who supported the Vietnam War, but shirked front-line duty by having his daddy get him a free pass into the National Guard and then flying obsolete jets in the rear.
The same treasonous coward who exposed a CIA operative because her husband challenged his and Cheney's WMD lies.
The same little traitor who lied us into an unnecessary war in Iraq and sent 3,000 men to their deaths. Men who performed a service for their country he was too chicken to take up when it was his time to do so.
Enjoy your GOP "heroes", little man.
You mean Joe Biden with his five Vietnam War deferments?

The power house John Boehner and Mitch Mcconnell said when Obama became president,that they will make sure he is only in there 4 years.So the republicans in office decided to screw Americans and the middle class . That's Romneys' and his fellow republicans agenda screw Americas middle class.

Don't forget that Bush had a deficit that was hight than all the Presidents before him and the economy was dropping like a rock. I lost my job during this time. The stock market was falling everything was going to crap.
Now I have my job back with lots of over time. The housing market is rebounding. The economy is getting better. It kinda reminds me when we voted in President Clinton, thing got better for everybody. Not so when Republican are running things, the rich get richer and the middle class get poorer. It is so easy to see, what is Romney big plan to give big tax cuts to the rich. In fact 95% of the tax cut goes to the rich. What did President Bush do, cut taxes on the rich. I remember they were getting a 50,000 dollar tax cut, now with Romney they would be getting 300,000 dollars a year. While the middle class goes down down down. It isn't very far off for most of America to be in that 47% that Romney doesn't have to worry about.

Letís start off with Three Simple Questions that would not require an investigation to answer!! Mr. President what time were you notified about the attack on Benghazi? Mr. President who told you the attack on Benghazi was due to a Film? Mr. President when/Time where you told about the death of our US Ambassador and the Three Americans?
And why did you send Rice out to five TV shows to tell a yarn about a Muhammad video as the reason for the attack on Libya that resulted in the needless death of four Americans?
And why if you Mr. President did you not send planes to prevent the murders of Seals on the ground begging for help? Since you were watching along with Biden and Panetta in the Situation Room for hours as the terrorist attack unfolded?
Why did Biden go on TV in his debate and say, "we didn't know it was a terrorist attack"?
Why did you Mr. President tell the CIA, & General in Italy to "Stand Down" and not go to the assistance of the fallen who had lasers centered for American planes to find the enemy?
The BS you and Panetta has given doesn't compute, and must be rebuked.

The figure you give is incorrect. It was $270 billion and that's for only one fiscal year out of eight he was in office. By the time he left, he added over a trillion, thus doubling what all presidents before had cumulatively run up.

As for Obama, your side handed him both the deficits and the economic mess to deal with.

There are less than ten days until election day when the people will decide who will be the next President of the United States. The person elected will be the president of all Americans, not just the Democrats or the Republicans.
Itís time that we all need to come together, Democrats, Independents, and Republicans alike.

Now in a bi-partisan effort for America:

If you will be supporting Mitt Romney, please drive with your headlights ON during the day.

If you support Barack Obama, please drive with your headlights OFF at night.

Together, we can make it happen.

Thank you !

As a side note,to all those Obama voters in Harlem interviewed by Howard Stern, yes, bin Laden is dead.
