Funny, many local roads were repaved with stimulus money & that would make you a liar once again.
You are such an idiot. You think all of the stimulus money was to go to infrastructure?
My God you are one dumb tea party idiot.

Well Houston, we have a problem then Dumb Dave. The stimulus was not for local roads, idiot. It was for state highways.

How much did Obama's campaign contribute?
That is equal to the total number of votes in Congress for all 2 of Obama's budgets he submitted of the 4 we hired him to submit in the 4 years he's been golfing around the White House - ZERO.
That's NADA, NOTHING, ZILCH.
Yup. Typical Democrat. "I'm not supposed to help. I'm just supposed to tell you what to do to help. All of you have to do everything to help. I'm just hear to make noise with my mouth."
Obama's contributing his being "eye candy" to the state of New Jersey.

Obama’s stimulus paves few new roads...

Money from the Obama administration’s $787 billion stimulus package to pave the nation’s highways staved off a sharp decline in highway spending but has done little to increase spending above levels before the recession hit last year, according to groups representing contractors and state highway officials.

Would that be the roads that have been continually under construction for a generation due to corruption in government road contracts, like we've seen all over the country for a lifetime?

So, please tell us after Obama wasted more money with "Porkulus" than the total that was spent on the war in Iraq from beginning to end, why are the power lines still hanging in the air and not burried, where it's been obvious they should be after the first hurricane blew down the first electrical pole and blew the first tree across the first power lines during the first hurricane that came ashore after America began using electricity?

That was an obvious shovel-ready project that "Porkulus" didn't get around to doing.

Save General Motors From Bankruptcy, Vote For Mitt Romney

President Obama has been touting his bailout of General Motors as a reason for people in Michigan and Ohio to vote for him. However, there is one small problem with his argument.

Regardless of the past, GM’s only hope for long-term survival nowis if Mitt Romney wins on November 6.

If Obama is reelected, GM is doomed to a second bankruptcy (or to another taxpayer bailout). This is because Obama is committed to doubling down on the two policies that drove GM bankrupt in the first place: a weak, unstable dollar, and unrealistic corporate average fuel economy (CAFE) requirements.

In contrast, Romney has promised to replace Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke, and he has expressed skepticism regarding Obama’s insane 54.5 miles per gallon (MPG) CAFE target.

This is Pathetic WH releases situation room photo-For Sandy but refuses to release video of Benghazi!! Mr. President since you refuse to address the American People on Benghazi prior to the election, President Romney will deal with the aftermath of your Incompetence/Failure on Benghazi and give the American People the answers you failed to give!! Romney/Ryan
So what did happen in Benghazi on the night of Sept. 11, when Woods, Ambassador Christopher Stevens and two others Americans were killed? The best way to establish the facts would be a detailed, unclassified timeline of events; officials say they are preparing one, and that it may be released later this week. That’s a must, even in the volatile final week of the campaign. In the meantime, here’s a summary of some of the basic issues that need to be clarified.

First, on the question of whether Woods and others were made to wait when they asked permission to move out immediately to try to rescue those at the consulate. The answer seems to be yes, but not for very long. There was a brief, initial delay — two people said it was about 20 minutes — before Woods was allowed to leave. One official said Woods and at least one other CIA colleague were “in the car revving the engine,” waiting for permission to go. Woods died about six hours later, after he returned to the annex.

The main reason for the delay, several sources said, was that CIA officials were making urgent contact with a Libyan militia, known as the February 17 Brigade, which was the closest thing to an organized security force in Benghazi. The United States depends on local security to protect U.S. diplomatic facilities everywhere, and officials wanted to coordinate any response to the consulate attack. After this delay, Woods and his colleague proceeded to the consulate.

Here’s my question: Was it wise to depend on a Libyan militia that clearly wasn’t up to the job? Could it have made a difference for those under attack at the consulate if Woods had moved out as soon as he was, in one official’s words,“saddled and ready”?

I am assuming still approximately 5500...quite a few with the same roles as other former SEALS and Rangers there at about ten times their former salaries--must just warm the cockles of Cheney's greedy stolen heart. "So, we’re removing our ground troops from Iraq by the end of December. That’s a good thing. But, we’re leaving behind the world’s biggest embassy and a 5,000 man private security force. And we’re probably still going to be hunting al-Qaeda there. The potential for problems is quite evident, I think."

Obama Family Tax Shelter -(First family transfers wealth, avoids taxes)

Obama and his wife, Michele, gave a total of $48,000 in tax-free gifts to their daughters, according to tax records made public on Friday.

The president and his wife separately gave each daughter a $12,000 gift under a section of the federal tax code that exempts such donations from federal taxes.

There is nothing illegal about the president’s taking advantage of this tax shelter, but it does raise eyebrows given that he has lamented the myriad tax exemptions used by the wealthy—“millionaires and billionaires” like himself—to pay less in taxes. He has yet to propose a comprehensive plan to reform the byzantine tax code.

Seems the left have gone on a few of those themselves.

Difference being...Republicans hold themselves accountable. Many Republicans have stepped down due to fellow Republicans pressuring them for much lesser offenses than this administration telling stories for weeks about a stupid video rather coming out and calling four dead Americans the result of an organized terrorist attack on 9/11.

That's the difference between your side and mine.

In a word - accountability.

What upsets me is the Obama White House hanging Americans out to dry in Benghazi, and causing them to be killed by Al Qaeda.
You remember Al Qaeda, don't you? The people that started the Arab jihad war with the United States by murdering 3000 Americans here in the United States.
Somehow, we ended up with a president that is on their side.
How do you suppose that ironic event happened here?
Breaking News: President Barack Obama met with Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Vice President Joe Biden at the White House on Sept. 11, 2012 at 5:00 PM—just 55 minutes after the State Department notified the White House and the Pentagon that the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi was under attack.

Not such a great issue for Obama if people read on pages 94-96 of Obama's sequestation proposals. Combined with military cuts which will effect the National Guard, Obama might not to go around trying to use FEMA as an issue. Those pesty facts really get in Obama's way!!!
Sequester was put in place to force Congress to act. Period.

If it were come to that point, it will be the failure (again) for the likes of Paul Ryan.

FEMA was discussed by Mitt Romney who favors letting states handle it & FEMA to be one of those areas we no longer needed.

Now Mitt will deny it or say he meant something else.

But in those debates when Perry ETAL were cancelling all sorts of aspects of the federal government, Romney had to jump in & throw away FEMA.

We're a resilient nation, the NYSE reopened today on generator power while uptown The Wendy Williams Show broadcast with a live audience, one dressed for Halloween.

DaBammy is visiting Atlantic City with Christie__there are no first responders there today although there are no doubt a few thousand insurance adjusters wandering around pretending to know what they're doing. Not so in Seaside and along the barrier island which is a total loss and will never be the same.

There are more dead than I thought there would be but a lot less damage__for instance there will be limited subway service beginning tomorrow__sorry Flack.

WOW__there is a shtload of lying going on here today eh?

Dumb Kvetch All Fraudy (of a thousand aliases) can't even spell GOP--she wasn't too bright before she faked that personal injury claim and received chiropractic for closed head trauma. BTW, Biden's younger than Cheney, and that guy got a brand new Chinee heart from Israel; it must have been a major component of the read Romneycare.

It is not the responsibility of ‘climate realist’ scientists to prove that dangerous human-caused climate change is not happening. Rather, it is those who propose that it is, and promote the allocation of massive investments to solve the supposed ‘problem’, who have the obligation to convincingly demonstrate that recent climate change is not of mostly natural origin and, if we do nothing, catastrophic change will ensue. To date, this they have utterly failed to do so.
