News update: Homer lost his basement, but he gained an indoor pool. Flack's windmill has generated enough power to last him a month.

Have not seen any apologies to Flack just yet. He was absolutely correct about the storm.

Libya/Benghazi is making Watergate look like a low classified misdemeanor.
The fact they watched this atrocity unfold while sitting on their hands is unbelievable.
Then again, this administration has ordered the assassination of American citizens with complete disregard for due process, so...
Your Repubs voting to take money away from Embassy security. You all are nothing but a bunch of Repub Hypocrites.
.
House Republicans cut the administration’s request for embassy security funding by $128 million in fiscal 2011 and $331 million in fiscal 2012....Last year, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton warned that Republicans’ proposed cuts to her department would be “detrimental to America’s national security”— a charge Republicans rejected.
Ryan, Issa and other House Republicans voted for an amendment in 2009 to cut $1.2 billion from State operations, including funds for 300 more diplomatic security positions. Under Ryan’s budget, non-defense discretionary spending, which includes State Department funding, would be slashed nearly 20 percent in 2014, which would translate to more than $400 million in additional cuts to embassy security.

Then why is Obama lying, avoiding and running away from the whole Benghazi nightmare. He is disrespecting those that gave their lives.
He's not. You are buying into rightwing propaganda. The only ones still chewing on this bone is Fox.
Nothing about it anywhere else at all.
Do you honestly think that the President of the United States wants anyone to die? Come on now, be real.

As a "severely conservative" Republican primary candidate, Mitt Romney said he would consider shuttering the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
When asked, "even in the event of a national disaster?", he said "yes"

What does investing in drug smuggling have to do with drinking beer?
Do you think drug dealers take drugs? It's a business, and one of the biggest ones Peppy. Pres. Bush gave the Taliban $400 million to eradicate the poppy fields. HA! It was seed money! Heroin production has increased something like 200%; drug sales buy the arms; the next biggest business.
It's got nothing to do with drug culture and if you don't realize the magnitude of money that comes from these ventures, then perhaps you should do some reading about it.
Your comments are so ridiculous it is not worth going any further.

The Plus in Romney's 0 Percent Black Vote Support

Another insidious GOP ploy with its eye on black voters is to bankroll and promote a handful of visible and vocal black conservatives to recite all the stock criticisms of Obama, civil rights leaders, and Democrats. This creates the deliberate and false impression that a substantial number of blacks don't support the Democratic Party despite the polls.

What a trip they are.
President Romney loves America and wants everyone to do well. The Kenyan loves himself and wants himself to do well.

America gets it.

JOHN EDWARDS WAS RIGHT: There are two Americas. However, I’d slice the distinction finer. While I generally agree with the author, I’d say that the real divide is those who love America and those who either hate it or are embarrassed by it. The line still divides Tyrone Woods and Lena Dunham, though.

LOL, the guy doesn't even drink beer and you want to paint him as a drug lord? Obama spent years in the hood in Chicago, he is far more acquainted with the drug culture.
In addition; Romney doesn't smoke; but that didn't deter him from promoting cigarrettes in Russia; a cute little feminine brand called Vogue; they even threw in a little charm bracelet with each pack and increased youth smoking by 50%, laundered the money through various channels, Luxembourg, the Caymans, back to the US, maybe even through the Mormon Church.
He doesn't believe in birth control and even called The Morning After Pill and abortion pill; (not true), however, he was heavily invested in the companies that make them.
He doesn't believe in abortion, but, that didn't deter him from investing in Stericycle, a medical waste company that ground up dead fetuses for a buck.

A felony
Do you think the IRS would have picked up on that by now? There might be something in them that could be spun pro-democrat, but highly unlikely anything illegal. Just probably the fact he used a lot of legal loopholes, which BTW, I'll bet you would have done whatever was legal to keep a larger portion of what you, yourself, earned too.

An exhausted and droopy-eyed Chris Christie joined the “Fox & Friends” crew Tuesday morning to give a rundown of the storm damage to his state of New Jersey. And while most of the conversation was about the devastation and how the state was reacting during the difficult time, Christie did let his trademarked fiery spirit show when one anchor tried to throw presidential politics into the mix.

After talking about what was being done in response to Hurricane Sandy, host Steve Doocy asked about rumors that Mitt Romney would be accompanying Christie to tour the damage. That’s when the governor let loose.

“I have no idea nor am I the least bit concerned or interested,” Christie said.“I’ve got a job to do here in New Jersey that’s much bigger than presidential politics, and I could care less about any of that stuff. I have a job to do, I’ve got 2.4 million people out of power, I’ve got devastation on the shore, I’ve got floods in the northern part of my state. If you think right now I give a damn about presidential politics then you don’t know me.”

I already sent in three absentee ballots and took an armful of the same to a "retirement home" where I filled out all the ballots myself. I also used the names of dead people in their burial ground to bulk up the ballots. PA is going for Mitt ... no doubt. Oh, and I sent in a ballot marked with the name "RealDave Putz".

Oh, for heaven's sake, Lily. I've posted that Boston Globe article about Jarrett's slums as well as the video of the documentary several times.

Nothing has been "debunked" except your ability to use plain old common sense and reasoning which makes you one of the easily fooled. That's just the plain old truth.

Even ultra-liberal NPR calls the race for President Romney!

Here’s a daily reminder for you awful Negroes and that dwindling number of human Barrybots out there that failed clown “Obama” is going to lose.

http://washingtonexaminer.com/npr-8-point-swi...

More awful news for failed clown “Obama”.

Early voting is favoring President Romney by a HUUUGE 52%– 46% margin – a TWENTY TWO POINT FLIP from 2008!

This from Gallup…

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/...

Even ultra-liberal OREGON trending President Rodney!

I lived in the Portland, OR region for 7 years until last February and can tell you that if even a blue state like that is going toward President-elect Romney, imagine the MASSIVE LANDSLIDE he’s going to win by a week from today!
