Are those the same "math nerds" that came up with the current and last unemployment rate numbers just in time for Obama's re-election campaign?
Yeah, sounds real legit.
Maybe the republicans in the house should focus on job bills and not all social issues!!!
republicans introduced bills:
44 bills on abortion
71 bills on family relationships
99 bills on religion
36 bills on marriage
67 bills on firearms/gun control
522 bills on taxation
455 bills on government
0 bills on job creation
Senate 18 stalled job bills!
Now we know who to blame for the employment rate. THE PRESIDENT ONLY SIGNS THE BILLS INTO LAWS.SO WHEN YOU SAY IT'S OBAMA FAULT YOU SOUND LIKE AND IDIOT!

Imagine being stuck in a high rise? Glad you survived without damage. So sorry for the Staten Island residents, and New Jersey. Just watched a man who is doing 12 hour shifts rescuing neighbors with his wetsuit and kayak!
The whole thing is unreal. I havent been able to watch anything, tv still out. Just walking around is an eye opener. Downtown was devastated. On the island its really bad on the coastlines. Its not just Staten Island and Jersey. Long Beach, the Rockaways, Coney Island, City Island all the way out north and south. It's gonna take years to recover from this. And its cold. But everyone is helping out as much as they can. We brought food and coats to a shelter downtown as did so many others. The National Guard and the Coast Guard are setting up generators in some of the gas stations this morning. That should help.

To be exceptionally clear: I do not mean to imply that the polls are biased in Mr. Obama’s favor. But there is the chance that they could be biased in either direction. If they are biased in Mr. Obama’s favor, then Mr. Romney could still win; the race is close enough. If they are biased in Mr. Romney’s favor, then Mr. Obama will win by a wider-than-expected margin, but since Mr. Obama is the favorite anyway, this will not change who sleeps in the White House on Jan. 20.
My argument, rather, is this: we’ve about reached the point where if Mr. Romney wins, it can only be because the polls have been biased against him. Almost all of the chance that Mr. Romney has in the FiveThirtyEight forecast, about 16 percent to win the Electoral College, reflects this possibility.
Yes, of course: most of the arguments that the polls are necessarily biased against Mr. Romney reflect little more than wishful thinking.
Nevertheless, these arguments are potentially more intellectually coherent than the ones that propose that the race is “too close to call.” It isn’t. If the state polls are right, then Mr. Obama will win the Electoral College. If you can’t acknowledge that after a day when Mr. Obama leads 19 out of 20 swing-state polls, then you should abandon the pretense that your goal is to inform rather than entertain the public.
But the state polls may not be right. They could be biased. Based on the historical reliability of polls, we put the chance that they will be biased enough to elect Mr. Romney at 16 percent.
.
16%? That's like-cold day in hel* odds. Bye Mittens. Thanks goodness Americans realize what a loser you are as a politician

Sorry had to shorten your less than completely accurate post of the entire conversation so I could fill others in on "the rest of the story" you didn't think people should know about.
Now why are you leaving out what Geraldo Rivera made very clear in that same conversation that as there is correctly so outrage and questions concerning all the info that has been put out by the White House to the American people about the video crap AND the unanswered questions and actions by the administration concerning even sending the ambassador to Lybia at the time prior to 9/11 and then the lack of security they were given before the attacks when they had requesting repeatidly to have more security and made it clear they could not withstand a planned corodianted attack, and yet they received no back up or increased security and in fact the administration had been pulling security OUT of the embassey and area just a month prior even though they had been informed that it was needed and they could not keep it secure or defend it in the event of an attack. And futhermore there was not any increased at embassey's all over the place for 9/11 like had been done EVERY STICKEN YEAR SINCE 2001!!!
You kind of left out the fact that Geraldo Rivera also said that the criticism of the administration concerning security prior to the attack and the response and blame for the video and lack of answers from the administration since the attack and murders is certainly warrented!!!!
Not all of the facts have been presented. I think we can agree on that.

So the leap of faith crowd over at FOX needs to step back and take a breath. The fact is they started out with some good reporting that went bad when no one would pay attention because of their history of not so good reporting. It's a catch-22 of their own making.

In this case, FOX has done Obama a favor.

COMPETENCE: Staten Island residents say Hurricane Sandy relief effort ‘forgot’ victims in their borough; outrage at response. It’s like a Katrina rerun, with Obama as Bush, Bloomberg as Ray Nagin, and Staten Island as the 9th Ward. Only the press is going light on the President this time..

In Benghazi timeline, CIA errors but no evidence of conspiracy

A detailed CIA timeline of the assault on U.S. facilities in Benghazi paints an anguishing picture of embattled Americans waiting for Libyan security forces who didn’t come and courageous CIA officers who died on a rooftop without the heavy weapons they needed, trying to protect their colleagues below.

It’s a story of individual bravery, but also of a CIA misjudgment in relying on Libyan militias and a newly formed Libyan intelligence organization to keep Americans safe in Benghazi.

While there were multiple errors that led to the final tragedy, there’s no evidence that the White House or CIA leadership deliberately delayed or impeded rescue efforts.

The CIA is now reviewing its security plans around the world to make sure the agency isn’t relying on shaky local forces. This is a difficult task because the United States has vulnerable arrangements in dozens of places.

Don't get me wrong. The Benghazi thing was horrible. I know it, you know it. Mistakes were made.

My point dear, is that the entire Iraq war was a useless fiasco, brought on by a Republican administration. They thought that they had ALL the answers. Turned out they were wrong. Wasteful. Think for a minute about the thousands of people that lost their lives.

You have made some mistakes, in your personal life? We as people are not infallible.

Romney Campaign, Media Collude in Unprecedented Politicization of Benghazi Attack

Five of the seven deadliest terrorist attacks on Americans overseas, claiming from five to 283 lives between 1983 and 2004, occurred in the lead-up to or during presidential campaigns. A sixth, the bombing of American embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, happened in the middle of a tense 1998 congressional campaign, and as the House girded itself for the coming impeachment battle.

Yet the handling of these attacks by Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush never became the kind of partisan fodder that the loss of four American lives at Benghazi has become, pushed by the Romney/Ryan ticket and unprecedented critical coverage, both of which are politicizing every nuance of the Obama administration’s response.

In contrast with Mitt Romney’s relentless Libya critique, Clinton in 1992, Clinton opponent Bob Dole in 1996, Bush II and Newt Gingrich in 1998, Bush II again in 2000 and Bush II opponent John Kerry in 2004 did not exploit these incidents, while Walter Mondale’s attempt to do so in 1984 got little media support. As forcefully as Romney is attempting to depict the attack as a consequence of Obama’s perceived Middle East “weakness,” over 90 percent of the 538 Americans who died in these seven earlier incidents did so while a Republican was in the White House, and Obama’s tally of four fatalities in overseas incidents is the lowest death toll of any modern American president. Nonetheless, Romney’s drumbeat about the Libya attack, focused on the timetable of administration disclosures about the nature of the assault, has had a greater impact on this presidential campaign than the abject bungling of far more catastrophic events that preceded it.

On the surface, this treaty sounds like it is supposed to prevent rogue nations from obtaining weapons, but the "fine print" prohibits any citizen of any participating nation from owning or possessing any firearms.
And apparently you believe gun owners in the USA are such meek sheep we'll just happily hand them over to the local constabulary?
There will be blood coursing in torrents down the streets the first day, you'll have to wade through it to get to 7-11, and platoons of cops will be slaughtered indiscriminately. You think he doesn't know this? You think Congress doesn't know this?

Don't believe everything you read, chicken little. That email has been circulating for two years, and gun shows have since been doing a HUGE and thriving business. Our guns aren't going anywhere, and the military isn't about to turn on citizens. Mass desertion will become the order of the day.
He and Congress know that too.
