I think that McCains unfortunate experience affected his mental capabilities to keep a calm and reasoned head in the face of conflict. He's a hot head, who goes around saying bomb, bomb, bomb Iran? He'd have had us in nuclear war within months. Romney is a money hungry zealot who would divert defense spending to make a personal profit; his friend is a ship builder; what a coinkydink.
What I said was not stupid; you are. Now, gfy
Like I said lily, has anyone ever told you you lack common sense?

I think you just confirmed that. Now, what do you want me to do to myself? I guess others have also asked you why you are so low class.

baaawwwaaahhhh!!!!

You are too much lily. Dumb as a box of rocks, for sure.

The real unemployment rate is 20%.

Drop in employment rate is due to people dropping out of the work force. duh

Your side passed the legislation that caused the housing bubble and the nazis were left wing. Hitler and the Brownshirts advocated the nationalization of education, health care(adolfcare), transportation( GM-Government Motors), national resources, manufacturing, distribution and law enforcement. Hitler came to power by turning the working class, unemployed, and academic elite against the conservative republic. After Hitler's election ceased being a political conspiracy and was transformed into a fashionable social phenomenon, party membership was especially popular with educators, bureaucrats, and the press. Sound familiar?
Both sides passed the legislation that created the housing bubble. The main legislation that caused it was written and proposed by Republicans at the urging of the banking industry and signed into law by a Democrat. When it was getting out of control both "liberal" and "conservative" groups warned Congress and the White House. Pelosi, Reid and Bush/Cheney all sat on their hands.

What happened to all that “momentum” Romney talked about?
Has Romney responded yet to Sensata employees’ plea for him to help save their jobs rather than sending them offshore?
I don't think he has, nor any other republican, none on here either. They pretend it doesn't exist. Except for maybe Fred who said who cares? But he says that about rape too, so...

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.

The Nazis were National Socialists. Contradictory as it sounds, they were both conservative and liberal - but in no way communist.

Repeat: 23 million unemployed - many more stopped looking for work. U6 unemployment rate remained unchanged last month at 14.7%. The total suffering this U6 unemployment was 23.2 million. Record numbers on SS disability as a means of not working. Banks still not lending - private sector businesses waiting for Obamacare to be repealed - "improvement" is a dem talking point, not a fact. Your boy must be replaced.

I agree with you; if Romney gets elected; all women should boycott sex; they y'all can gfy or gsy, whatever the case may be. That'll teach you to fool with women.

Sensata? So what? Who cares? Bain works for the investors not the unions who killed the company.

Objection to Akin and Mourdock pro life views? So what? Who cares?

You really enjoy showing off your ignorance.

Hitler hated left-wingers. The Nazis received major financial assistance from right-wing industrialists like Krupp to retain their street armies for use against the communists and socialists.

When the Nazis took power, the communist and socialist parties were outlawed and their leaders jailed. Trade unions were forbidden.

Hitler retained private enterprise and the profit motive.

He attacked the Soviet Union in 1941.

As for who caused the housing bubble, Bush signed the crucial legislation which led to it, the American Dream Act.

Also, your side was the majority party for most of 2001-2009 when the crisis built up and exploded.

Liberal secret decoder ring translation:

Kenyan commie Canadian occupier scum suppress free speech.
Fox News' Lies Keep Them Out of Canada
By Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Reader Supported News
01 March 11
As America's middle class battles for its survival on the Wisconsin barricades - against various Koch Oil surrogates and the corporate toadies at Fox News - fans of enlightenment, democracy and justice can take comfort from a significant victory north of the Wisconsin border. Fox News will not be moving into Canada after all! The reason: Canadian regulators announced last week they would reject efforts by Canada's right-wing Prime Minister, Stephen Harper, to repeal a law that forbids lying on broadcast news.
Canada's Radio Act requires that "a licenser may not broadcast ... any false or misleading news." The provision has kept Fox News and right-wing talk radio out of Canada and helped make Canada a model for liberal democracy and freedom.
Proof that the truth has a liberal bias.

Canada gets it.

23 million out of work.

Divide that by 300 million and you get just under 8%.

8.3 million have stopped looking for work ... nnual median household income has declined by $4,019, or 7.3%. Moreover, the decline has been greater since the recession supposedly ended in June, 2009, than it was during the recession. In the three years from June, 2009, until June, 2012, median household income declined by 6%. http://townhall.com/columnists/peterferrara/2...

Yep, things are getting better. LOL Da Bammy has FAILED.... and you want four more years OF THIS? America can't afford that.
