Even that isn't working out for the Democrats. The bigger the storm is, the more "presidential" Obama gets to be. You can bet the Democrats are hoping for a storm from hell and destruction everywhere.
Pretty nasty one.

Who's the duhmmy in A/C told people no need to heed the WELL sounded warnings of rationality and reason?

Think those duhmmies have figured out-they weren't just blowing mist yet?

Romney's approval as Governor of Massachusetts:
Feb. 2003 - 56%
June 2003 - 56%
Sep. 2003 - 61%
Nov. 2003 - 66%
April 2004 - 58%
Sep. 2004 - 55%
March 2005 - 50%
Aug. 2005 - 50%
March 2006 - 46%-> after announcing not running for re-election

His numbers dropped only after March 2006 when he announced he would not run for reelection until December 2006.

Also, many in Massachusetts had grown dissatisfied with Romney's frequent out-of-state travel and shift toward promoting socially conservative issues as he began to focus increasingly on national rather than state politics.

His approval ratings in a predominantly Democrat state was actually quite high until the very end of his last year in office.

How quickly everybody forgets..........
Bill Clinton was suspended from practicing law in Arkansas and paid a $250,000 fine as a result of the Monica Lewinski incident. He also paid a $850,000 settlement over the Paula Jones incident. He was also disbarred from practicing law in front of the Supreme Court. So Bill Clinton, a disbarred lawyer, a President who was impeached for lying under oath, is asking the American people to believe him when he says the best thing for the country is four more years of Obama. Just wanted to make sure I had that right.
I did not have sex with that woman but I do want you to vote for Obama.

Don't think Bill has much room to call anyone a liar.

But he did say Bain Capital's record was "sterling".

And he did say at an Ohio rally this month (supposedly supporting Obama) that the President has not fixed the economy, nor achieved any form of recovery and validated Mitt Romney's words from the most recent debate when he said this:

"Governor Romney's argument is...it's not fixed, so fire him and put me in. It is true, we're not fixed. When President Obama looked into the eyes of that man who said at the debate, I had so much hope four years ago, and I don't now...I thought he was gonna cry. Because he knows that it's not fixed."

Seems Bill might be having some mixed feelings.

It's so obvious Obama is lying about Libya, I'm really surprised anyone pretends to believe him.

Winning the Cold War has a cost. Especially when there's a Democrat-controlled Congress sabotaging us.

By the way, I'm sorry your side lost the Cold War.

You sound like those that talked people into voting for Bush. Haven't learned anything yet?

Oh yea, why is it that I see Clinton campaigning all over and where is Bush? Romney doesn't want anyone to know how his policies will end up

You're supposed to kill the horse first.

And you could use some coaching on your flogging technique; though I love the drift to the middle.

Romney presided over a series of spending cuts and increases in fees that eliminated an up to $1.5 billion deficit.

According to PolitiFact:
If a state is faring better than others through the recession, there is less room to go back up, and so the percentage gains would be smaller.

We found little evidence to support the claim that Romney is responsible for those jobs numbers. Economists told us that it's a stretch to blame or credit Romney or any governor for job numbers.

People died
Obama lied
While the nation was focused on Bill Clinton's charges of sexual harrassment, lying under oath to a Grand Jury, deciphering the meaning of the word "is" and whether or not he did or did not have sex with that woman in the Oval Office, the plot for 9/11 was in full swing during the entire four years of his second term.
