Now Carol, you're making a whole lot of people on here go stick their heads in the sand, but soon they will be back with some inane, insulting response that doesn't address what you just posted, but which they will think is incredibly insightful in its vindictiveness.:)

Obama will NEVER be able to live up to the expectations and hype of this circus of an election.
I feel sorry for the bloke.
Feel sorry for yourself, mate....Eurotrash Socialism is fully entrenched in YOUR society, much to its detriment. We're about to flush it OUT of America via a MASSIVE electoral enema on November 6th.

As I recall, the Arabs provoked that war by murdering 3000 Americans in the United States.
... correct me if that is wrong.
And, you're defending the position that Obama shouldn't be involved in any government function he doesn't have profissional experience with?
I suppose managing the Department of Community Organizing takes up all his time.
He's the president. He's the top authority. His responsibility is to make the decisions.
Perhaps, because he doesn't have any experience at anything in his entire life, the best thing is for that chair to be empty.
We're going to introduce some change to that situation very soon.
Romney wins by a landslide.
Fifteen of the nineteen "arabs" that murdered the 3,000 Americans were from Saudi Arabia. So why are you relating the unprovoked Republican invasion of Iraq to 9-11?
Consider yourself corrected.

<quoted text>Think about this for a moment. In addition to Barack O'bama serving on a Board with Bill Ayers, the mother of Obama's most trusted political confidant (Valerie Jarrett) served on a Board with Bill Ayers' father (along with Ayers' wife Bernadine Dohrn). As if that weren't enough, Valerie Jarrett's father-in-law was a close colleague of Barack Obama's Communist mentor, Frank Marshall Davis. Valerie Jarrett is undoubtedly a woman of power and influence.
Obama has in-fact said that he makes NO decision without her.
Jarrett is also a far-left subversive radical who's completely obsessed with racial issues... and was never properly vetted by the MSM, let alone anybody in the White House.
And this woman was Van Jones' recruiter, biggest supporter, and cheerleader. And the corruption she was involved with through Habitat Corp and Tony Rezko back in Chi-town is appalling-
Jarrett is linked to a series of shameful real-estate scandals, including projects operated by Rezko and Allison Davis (former boss of Obama). Housing projects developed and/or operated by Davis and Rezko have been manifestly substandard and beset with code violations.
Basically, Obama helped get them public funding for projects purported to be "for the poor"- while these charlatans spent as little as possible building and maintaining them- and Jarrett "managed" and looked the other way for $300K/yr in salary... plus $850K of "deferred income" -according to her own report.
More 'common knowledge' that can't be cited in fear of humorous reprisal.

Lower American coporate taxes and get rid of half the regulatory agencies and companies can make a profit in the US. Otherwise business will go where they can make the best go of it. US is NOT small business friendly under Obama. AND Mitt Romney is not doing it. His tenure with Bain is in the past.

He probably was a recipient of the amnesty, likely only paid 9% taxes. Mitt is a money launderer, may be involved in arms and drug sales.

Who's buying obama's snake oil?

" Two days after introducing what he heralded as the most sweeping ethics rules in American history — ones that would "close the revolving door that lets lobbyists come into government freely" — President Obama waived those rules for his nominee for Deputy Secretary of Defense, William Lynn, who was a registered lobbyist for the defense contractor Raytheon until last Fall."

According to the three (3) State Department e-mails Chris Stevens was accompanied at the Benghazi consulate by four (4) COM (chief of mission) personnel. Data manager Sean Smith died, his body being removed by the small team of rescuers from the CIA annex__that leaves 3 survivors.

Who and where are they???

So now in addition to name-calling and insults your method of convincing us that you are correct includes a LIE also? I HEARD IT MYSELF ON FOX. What on earth is WRONG with you? Can you not make a point HONESTLY without trying to cover up, insult, put-down, twist the facts or LIE? You should be ASHAMED! Have you considered that if you MUST to all that to seem like you are right, you are most likely incredibly, undeniably WRONG?
Way to debate the "superiority" (laughing) of Obama.
Name-calling and insults?

I'm the constant brunt of such which I commonly reply to in nothing more than a sarcastic manner. Ask any of your compatriots.

And I guess I'm a nitwit for thinking that FOX would print the whole interview. What was I thinking eh?

What??? Sensata is booming, I do business with them (nice plant in the DR). Closing one plant only tells me that one plant had problems, my guess is union problems.
