General Motors Is Headed For Bankruptcy -- Again

Obama is proud of his bailout of General Motors. That’s good, because, if he wins a second term, he is probably going to have to bail GM out again. The company is once again losing market share, and it seems unable to develop products that are truly competitive in the U.S. market.

<quoted text>Excellently done. People are cutting their own throats if they vote for Romney the profiteer. Ask people in Massachusetts what they think of Romney especially after he denied them disaster relief.
*In his last year as governor, Romney refused to provide state assistance when major floods hit western Massachusetts., even though the state government had ample funds. http://legalplanet.wordpress.com/2012/10/29/r...
*Romney not only suggested shuttering FEMA and sending responsibility for disaster relief ?back to the private sector,? but also said it would be ?immoral? for the federal government to fund disaster relief efforts without cutting the budget elsewhere.?It makes no sense at all,? Romney concluded.
http://theview.abc.go.com/forum/romney-federa...
*We cannot afford to do those things without jeopardizing the future for our kids,? Romney said, when asked directly about relief for victims in Mississippi, Louisiana, Tennessee, Massachusetts, and other communities hit by tornados and flooding should not receive governmental assistance. He argued it is ?simply immoral? to have deficit spending that could harm future generations.(So it's better to harm the older generations by forcing them to give up their ancestral homes and farms?

Even Chris Cristy knows when it's time to stop demonizing our President and our government.*NJ Governor Christ Christie has been doing the rounds of the cable news shows expressing warm praise of Obama's handling of Hurricane Sandy.
He described Obama's cooperation as "wonderful" on MSNBC's Morning Joe, and "outstanding" on NBC's Today.

Meanwhile Romney is ducking questions about his FEMA remarks until his camp can tell him what exactly he meant to say. http://politix.topix.com/homepage/2695-romney...

You can also ask workers at Sensata who had their hopes crushed when Romney turned his back on them and ignored their pleas to save their jobs.

Bain sent 170 Sensata jobs to China and the workers reached out to Romney several and were ignored.

Romney is a jerk and does not deserved to be President of The United States.

There were four mortar rounds fired__period___just four and only three actually hit the CIA annex buildings. What makes you think that someone on the roof of one of those buildings could laser paint a target and what in the fuhell does it matter given that only a few rounds were fired. This wasn't the battle of Normandy doll! The big damage at the consulate was caused by fuel oil and a bic lighter__we don't know what went on at the annex beyond that there were only two announced casualties.
Apparently you have a very low regard for human life (other than your own), no wonder you support Obama. There plenty of documented opportunites to at least attempt to save their lives.

Omg, did you see the people asking him if he would dismantle FEMA today? He just ignored them and kept putting things in a truck, they asked 14 times! Silence!

Bullshyt, this has been debunked and debunked, you're sick in the head.
Where's Romneys tax returns?
No comments about him closing Sensata and exporting 200 jobs and the plant to China?
Many people believe the tax returns are sitting next to Obama's hidden and secret low grade transcripts, along with his hidden secret plans to provide shovel-ready jobs and improve the economy and national unity,etc. Many people also believe you are responsible for the election of the incompetent almost 1 term senator, community organizer, and 20 year deaf follower of Rev. Wright.

Failed Bush FEMA director Michael Brown says Obama, FEMA acted too quickly in hurricane response

So … Brown is peeved that Obama disrupted his schedule in anticipation of something that was going to affect a large percentage of the entire U.S. population, unlike that time when something happened in Benghazi that nobody knew about until after it was already over? Wow. I think I may actually, seriously hate this guy.

It may be the continuing news coverage of flooded streets and homes in wreckage, but I have had about all I can take of these wretched little twerps. As his big relief contribution, we've got Mitt Romney collecting canned goods in Ohio (yes, that's what's going to help the entire northeast recover—a busload of canned soup), and the guy George Bush put in charge of the last gargantuan hurricane disaster is muttering about how political it is that Obama is, you know, actually effing doing stuff. A party whose biggest philosophical discussion about massive, multi-state disasters is whether our own government should really give a flying damn about them at all, and who thought it was preposterous for a war in a foreign land to be paid for at all but mew about how "immoral," etc., it is to help our own citizens after a disaster unless and until we've written the right things on the right budget lines.

I may actually despise these people today. I think I'm going to have to proactively ignore everything these insufferable, amoral, sociopathic nitwits say for the next 12 hours or so, just to maintain some last shred of faith in humanity.
