It's incredible to the rapepublicans, but very credible to me, Mitt
is a crafty swindler, it's in his blood, that's all he thinks of every single minute, how to make money.
Did I just hear him say on the news "Of course I wouldn't shut down FEMA?" LOL! Oh my word, he's such a liar! He salivates at getting ahold of federal money to divert into his and his friends pockets.
The Obama administration released a disturbing report on Friday that revealed hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars poured into a program that failed to achieve its goals and was discriminatory against women, whereby 84 percent of the beneficiaries were men.

The report regarding an internal investigation conducted by the Inspector General of the Department of Labor increases suspicion of the ineffectiveness of the Obama administration’s Green Jobs Training Program, according to members of the House of Representative.
The program didn’t broadly increase employment: Three and a half years since the stimulus was signed, this $500 million program has only placed 11,613 individuals (16 percent of the goal) into jobs that have been retained for more than 6 months. Only 38 percent, or 30,857, were placed into employment at all.

The training was often between one and five days long: According to the report:“Of the 81,354 participants who completed training through the Green Jobs program, 47 percent (38,366 participants) received 5 days or less of training, of which 21 percent (17,374 participants) received only 1 day of training.”

Furthermore,“Of the total 30,857 reported as entered employment, 4,874 were for participants who received only 1 day of training. This included 3,213, or 66 percent of incumbent workers who were reported as entered employment after only 1 day of training.”

Obama’s DOL disproportionately trained men: 84 percent of trainees were male, according to the report. This is direct contrast to what the President says on the campaign trail when he exploits the “war on women.”

Two way occupy gutter streeters. The Epitomys of Hypocricy.

..."The IG’s investigation revealed that the DOL trained more criminals than veterans: 9 percent of the people who received training (about 10,000 individuals) had criminal records, while 7 percent were veterans. Out of a target of 81,254, grantees collectively reported only 30,857 participants (38 percent) entered employment.

For many people who received training, it was not beneficial: Of the 81,354 participants who completed training, 42,322 (52 percent) already had jobs. According to the IG,“Grantees were authorized to train incumbent workers who needed training to secure full-time employment, advance their careers, or retain their current jobs. However, for the 81 incumbent workers we identified in our sample, we found no evidence that they needed green job training for any of these purposes.”.....

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.

Well, when Romney goes to the White House, Obama has made sure the Muslim Brotherhood will be there waiting on him, dupe.

So true, Lily. Fred has been one of my most devoted followers even though I long ago inducted him/her into the Knights of the Satanic Order of the List of Terminally Insulting and Disgusting Without Redeeming Capacity for Reasonable Discourse. Like a Roach Motel, knights can check in, but they can’t check out. There is no room phone for contacting the font desk or management, but they are free to fill out complaint forms. Jesus still loves them, of course, but they’re in solitary for one eternity. Once knighted, there’s no opportunity for reinstatement to the Knights of the Holy Order of the List of the Decent, Honorable, Desirable and Reasonable.

You and that video.
Somehow I think that your interpretation of the video will differ from most. Something to do with you always asking people to answer questions you can't even answer.
How do you interpret a spontaneous demonstration from the video feed?
You really need to stop doing those hallucinogens when you watch video feeds of Americans being hung out to dry by the White House and killed by Al Qaeda.

Really. How did you interpret a spontaneous demonstration from the vidoe of Al Qaeda attacking the US consulate compound?

Since he came into office, Republicans have consistently attacked President Obama for supposedly being anti-business. As ThinkProgress noted last week, the data shows that this charge is nonsense.

In fact, as the financial website Motley Fool noted today, President Obama is far and away the best president for corporate profits since 1900:
