So what kind of President would Mitt be after riding into the WH on right wing lies?

No it doesn't. Substantiate your claim with facts.

The United States is among a select few who have veto rights on the security council. So does Russia and China. There are other nations with veto power on the security council, but if it were limited to these three countries the United STates would only be 1/3 of the UN.

The Federal Flood Insurance Program has only $3 billion left in borrowing power. That means it will have to get the rest of the money from the Treasury. In other words you, me, China, and Japan. This does not include money from the state and federal government to rebuild roads and other infrastructure.

We are broke.

Maybe that 2 billion dollar line of credit Obama gave to the national oil company of Brasil, Petrobras, so they can buy up oil reserves in the Gulf of Mexico can be transferred to the Federal Flood Insurance Program.
Petrobras is one of the most successful and largest oil companies in the world. They don't need the 2 billion dollars Obama gave them.

That would give the Federal Flood Insurance Program 5 billion dollars.

What is Obama waiting for?

Jewish Romney Voters Are Fig Leaf for Christian Right

A Republican Vote Supports Intolerance and Ignorance

As William F. Buckley once reminded us, classical conservatives tended to be anti-Semitic. They looked down on Jews, blacks and immigrants, and had chauvinist ideas about women. It’s part of what being a conservative meant.

That began to change 50 years ago, when neoconservatism — that is, Jewish conservatism — began to take hold. Neoconservatism separated right-wing economic policies from paleoconservatism’s racism, sexism and anti-Semitism. Newly ascendant Jewish Republicans could now associate with the same conservatives who once wouldn’t let them into their social clubs.

But social conservatism never went away. On the contrary, it’s the reason the Republican Party exists today. And Jewish Republicans who prop it up are deceiving themselves.

On the first point, let’s look at the numbers. Republicans came to power in the 1980s because of the “Southern Strategy”— pandering to the racism of some Southerners — and the ascendant Christian Right. Ever since that time, neocons have had to make a deal with the devil. To gain power over economic and foreign affairs, they depend on the same religious (and often racist) paleoconservatives that were supposed to be neo-d out.

This is as true today as it was in 1980. Sure, there are some moderates surrounding Mitt Romney, including many Jews. But they will only gain power thanks to the Republican Party’s extreme Christian Right and Tea Party fringes. Just look at the numbers: Forty-six percent of Americans believe in Creationism. Almost all of them are Republicans; that means that there’s only a sliver of Republicans who aren’t also extremely traditionally religious. Who do you think really calls the shots?

Who’s using whom?

Jewish Republicans may pretend that they’re pulling a lever for smaller government and more free enterprise. But that same lever advances ignorance, theocracy and religious coercion. Of course, most Jewish Republicans don’t favor the Christian Right’s positions. But that’s what a Republican vote means, and to pretend otherwise is just willful ignorance.

Pure BS. The fact that you can't even cite it because you will only find that BS on right wing sites is all anyone of average intelligence needs to know.

Obama’s birthplace, his paternity, his religion, his academic attainments, his citizenship and his loyalty to the country have all been called into question by people who feel no moral qualms about spreading fabrications and untruths. Any unfair tactic, any lie is justified in order to “take back America” from someone they refuse to accept as a legitimate president, despite the indisputable reality that he was elected by a majority of American voters in a near-landslide of electoral votes.

It is a false equivalence to say the left has been guilty of similar smears during the administrations of Republican presidents. In those past instances, all but a few Democratic elected officials shunned such slanders. The same was true for all but the most rabid liberal commentators. But most of today’s Republican leaders stay silent in the face of the lies and many eagerly repeat them, while leading conservative pundits give the endless falsehoods credence, not an honest critique.

The right wing’s eagerness to engage in deceit has distorted credible conservatism and corrupted political discourse. It has turned the Grand Old Party into a rigid and narrow ideological club that tries to purge any Republican who displays even a hint of moderation or willingness to compromise.

The ever-waffling Romney is not their perfect candidate, but, for now, that does not matter. He offers their one and only chance to drive the usurper, Obama, from the White House. That has been the right wing’s objective every minute of every day for four years, and vindication of their dishonest, un-American crusade would be the worst result of Mitt Romney’s election.

How about this logic, idiot:
Peace through strength.
Obama's idea of surrendering to a bunch of Arabs that get excited when they watch a video of Arabs cutting off the head of a defenseless American while he's bound like an animal won't have a peaceful ending, idiot.
Since I was quoting Gunner I assume the idiot you're referring to is him. He's the "Peace" guy, I never gave an opinion.
The logic you Republicans really is hard to follow.

In 1980 Jimmah Cahtah had brought us to the brink of defeat in the Cold War, decimated the economy, and let a bunch of ragheads sack our embassy and hold Americans hostage for 444 days.
That's why he got tossed out on his idiot ass.

So, what you're saying is, that AC-130 Spectre gunship actually flew and blew away Al Qaeda while they were attacking the consulate and CIA facility?
What you're saying is, the Force Recon Marine unit in Sigonella was deployed into action and supported the Americans being attacked by Al Qaeda in Benghazi?
What you're saying is, there was real-time video of the attack being watched in Washington, and Obama somehow saw a different video than everyone else, right? Which led to the obvious lies coming out of Obama's mouth, and led to Susan Rice embarrassing the United States in front of the entire world by spouting obvious lies at the UN, right?

... you're a dupe. And not a very intelligent dupe, at that.
