Barack Obama, our next President

I think you are referring to the latest bid,. EADS had won that contract in the past.
The problem is that we want to bid on military contracts for other countries. We can say no to bidding on ours if we want to bid on theirs.
We have had secrets leak from foreign manufacturers in the past. I recall something about night vision technology a few years back.
If I were a corporation looking to suckle big bucks from the military, I would get set up to be able to say feed & house our soldiers in a foreign country (Iraq?) & then get my CEO elected VP so he could start that war & put that out to bid. Heck, I'd be the only bidder! Then my subsidiary could cut corners & electrocute a few soldiers.
Yes, it was the latest fiasco. I'm pro Boeing and not a fan of EADS.... not by a long shot. I always thought it was a bad move to begin with.

The issue regarding The Black Panthers is not fear of them or fear of their tactics.

It was anger over Eric Holder not upholding The Law/The Civil Rights Act of 1964 which prohibits intimidation of Voters.
And before it is stated: It does not specify the protection of just Black Voters, but Any and All Voters.

**Attorney General Fast & Furious did not prosecute the thugs ( who just happened to be Black Panthers banishing illegal weapons ), who tried to intimidate White Voters at The Polls.

Don't be fooled. Non-Blacks do not fear these thugs.
Black intimidation has long past. Though you would like to believe it still exists and is effective.

The Black Panthers wouldn't have the guts to face An Armed Force.

Which is why all they can to is talk shyte!

**It should be noted Bush brushed the issue aside as well.
BUT the anger came WHEN these thugs became emboldened and started blatantly ( talk about SICK IN THE HEAD ) ranting:
"I hate whitey's children ! I'll kill whitey's children" ! GTFOH ! They'd get DEAD first. How's that scan !?

That's funny, it was Rmoney's 'evolving' that cost him the election.

----------

Flip
"I'm proud of what we've done. If Massachusetts succeeds in implementing [Romneycare], then that will be a model for the nation." –Mitt Romney, while campaigning for president in Baltimore in 2007
Flop
"At the time I crafted the plan in the last campaign I was asked is [Romneycare] something that you would have the whole nation do, and I said no. This is something that was crafted for Massachusetts. It would be wrong to adopt this as a nation." – Mitt Romney in a 2011 Republican presidential primary debate

----

Flip
"Well, I'm not getting rid of all of healthcare reform." – Mitt Romney, Meet the Press interview (Sept. 9, 2012)
Flop
"Obamacare must be repealed in its entirety." – Mitt Romney, Hugh Hewitt Show interview (Sept. 10, 2012)

-----

Flip
Romney, speaking in 2012 about the U.S. auto industry's comeback: "I pushed the idea of a managed bankruptcy. And finally, when that was done, and help was given, the companies got back on their feet. So I'll take a lot of credit for the fact that this industry's come back."
Flop
Romney, writing in a 2008 New York Times op-ed titled "Let Detroit Go Bankrupt": "If General Motors, Ford and Chrysler get the bailout that their chief executives asked for yesterday, you can kiss the American automotive industry goodbye."

----

Flip
"I believe that abortion should be safe and legal in this country. I believe that since Roe v. Wade has been the law for 20 years, that we should sustain and support it. I sustain and support that law and the right of a woman to make that choice." – Mitt Romney, in a 1994 debate with Sen. Edward Kennedy. In 2002, Romney also said, "I respect and will protect a woman's right to choose."
Flop
"Look, I was pro-choice. I am pro-life. You can go back to YouTube and look at what I said in 1994. I never said I was pro-choice, but my position was effectively pro-choice. I changed my position." – Mitt Romney, in a 2007 Iowa Straw poll debate

----

Flip
Romney in 2012: "I don't manage the money that I have. In order to make sure that I didn't have a conflict of interest while I was governor or while I was considering a run for national office, I had a blind trust established."
Flop
Romney in 1994: "The blind trust is an age-old ruse, if you will, which is to say, you can always tell the blind trust what it can and cannot do. You give a blind trust rules."

----

Flip
Romney in June 2011: "I believe the world is getting warmer … I believe that humans contribute to that."
Flop
Romney in October 2011: "My view is that we don't know what's causing climate change on this planet."

-----

Flip
"We do have tough gun laws in Massachusetts. I support them. I won't chip away at them." –Mitt Romney in a 2002 gubernatorial debate
Flop
"I don't support any gun control legislation, the effort for a new assault weapons ban, with a ban on semi-automatic weapons, is something I would oppose." –Mitt Romney, in a 2008 interview with conservative bloggers

-------

Flip
"I purchased a gun when I was a young man. I've been a hunter pretty much all my life." –Mitt Romney in April 2007
Flop
"I'm not a big-game hunter. I’ve always been a rodent and rabbit hunter. Small varmints, if you will." –Mitt Romney in April 2007

------

Flip
"I longed in many respects to actually be in Vietnam and representing our country there." –Mitt Romney, reflecting in a 2007 Boston Globe interview on the Vietnam War period, when he received a deferment to work as a Mormon missionary in France
Flop
"It was not my desire to go off and serve in Vietnam." –Mitt Romney, as quoted in the Boston Herald in 1994.\

From the you-can't-make-this-crap-up files, David Keene, the president of the National Rifle Association (NRA), is blaming President Obama and "the left" for death threats against him and his family and:

What this reflects are two things. One is the uncivil way in which idealogues on the left in this country go after their enemies. The second thing it shows is the reflection of the left and the President of the United States’ attempt to demonize and blame those who disagree with them for everything that he doesn’t like.
This from the group who released an ad that targeted the president's daughters.
Oh, and about all that blaming and demonizing? Here's what Obama said about the NRA when he announced his proposals to curb gun violence:


If you want to buy a gun -- whether it’s from a licensed dealer or a private seller -- you should at least have to show you are not a felon or somebody legally prohibited from buying one. This is common sense. And an overwhelming majority of Americans agree with us on the need for universal background checks -- including more than 70 percent of the National Rifle Association’s members, according to one survey. So there’s no reason we can’t do this.

Care to back up your claims??

Or is this more of your 'sour grapes' loser tak??

Point out any 'nasty' things Obamas did to Rmoney.

Then I'll respond in kind.

I'll wager I can find far more racist and nasty stuff coming from the Rmoney side.

Rmoney's using the racist John Sununu as a chief spokesman resulted in comments like this;

""Former White House Chief of Staff John Sununu, a co-chair of GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney's campaign, said in an interview Thursday night that retired Gen. Colin Powell's decision to endorse President Barack Obama's re-election bid appeared to have been driven by race.

However, Sununu later seemed to reverse himself.

"Frankly, when you take a look at Colin Powell, you have to wonder if that's an endorsement based on issues, or whether he's got a slightly different reason for preferring President Obama?" Sununu said on CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight."

"What reason would that be?" a somewhat-perplexed sounding Morgan replied.

"Well, I think when you have somebody of your own race that you're proud of being President of the United States, I applaud Colin for standing with him," Sununu said.""

----------

Even the racists realized Sununu had gone too far;

""A few hours after the CNN interview, Sununu issued a statement appearing to back away from the comment.

"Colin Powell is a friend and I respect the endorsement decision he made and I do not doubt that it was based on anything but his support of the president’s policies. Piers Morgan’s question was whether Colin Powell should leave the party, and I don’t think he should," Sununu said.""


Ya want to talk nasty, bring it on, nitwit!!

Is that the kind of president you want? Win at all costs? No matter how many lies you spread about your opponent?
There's a difference between proving your opponent an unworthy candidate and out-and-out lies.
This president crossed the line twice - in both elections.

I like how they dragged the president into their argument by pointing out he and his family have armed guards.
Obama gets almost 10,000 threats against his life a year.
Thousands more than any other president.
