I agree, but Romney still should have been able to react.
I think he was struck just as speechless as half the country in total disbelief that a moderator actually became part of the debate on behalf of the opposition.

But you have to love the exchange between ABC News reporter Jonathan Karl and Jay Carney at Tuesday's press briefing.
KARL: The Secret Service told us that the tours cost $74,000 a week. How much is it going to cost for the President to travel later this week to Illinois?
CARNEY: Well, the president is the President of the United States. And he is elected to represent all of the people. And he travels around the country and blah, blah, blah.
KARL: How much does it cost for him to go and play golf?
CARNEY: Jon, again, you’re trivializing an impact here. People will lose their jobs. Three-quarters of a million people will lose their job.
KARL: This is about choices. You have a certain amount of–(then interrupted by Carney)
Carney never did respond to Karl’s question about the cost of Obama’s golf trips.
It was a good day for America.
cold in DC isn't it? Obama should fly to Texas to play golf. for 5 weeks.

There is definitely a media consortium working to form a best image policy for the Boy Messiah. Have you also noticed the other standard Obamaschlock category of sleeves half-rolled up, grinning downward as though shy, harmless, non-threatening with a wide wrinkled grin? I've seen several from different sources. He's got a Male Model Manager working out there. Maybe Larry Sinclair.
Then there's the Rebel Without A Cause look. Myself, I think he looks and acts a lot more like Justin Beiber or PeeWee Herman than James Dean.
I think he bears a striking resemblance to Alfred E. Neuman.

Do you have a real, actual case where that has happened, or is it like most of your posts, pulled out of your fat ass?
There are several cases in Colorado where child rapists were given a maximum sentence of 1 to 2 years.

In fact, 2 to 6 years is the average sentence for child rapists in Colorado unless the rape is elevated to assault or homicide.

At the time, it was literally half and half. Before the hurricane gave Obama the spotlight to look presidential right before the election, it was actually more than half.

Not sure what all that means but pretty sure there was an insult somewhere in there.
Preserving personal freedoms, personal choices and personal liberties is not just a Christian concept.
If you think an overbloated government who can't even manage or keep up with the abuses in the entitlement programs now, just wait until Obamacare hits the fan.
You haven't seen poor yet...
This is going to backfire on the same people Obama and you seemingly think bigger government can save.
Since the hell when are you concerned with personal liberties, choices and freedoms? You've bragged about voting to deny some of your fellow citizens the right to enter into a legal marriage with the partner of their choice. You're on board with laws that restrict the right of a woman to control her own body. Hypocritical much?
Really Carol do you want your health care needs being determined by a bunch of backroom pencil pushers whose main concern is the bottom line and padding executive salaries by limiting the care you get? Because that's what big health insurance has been doing for years and Obamacare puts an end to those abuses.

Here's my stance on the whole civil rights & liberties thing. Every person has the right to do as he/she pleases by law as long as those rights don't infringe on the rights of others! That said, it's none of my business who marries who of what race or gender, or what a woman does with her body! None of my business! But with rights & liberties also comes responsibilities. Be gay all you want, but when you step out your front door, a man should be a man & a woman a woman. Nobody's children should have to see men acting like woman & vice versa, because it's not normal. Now in the case of abortion. Giving the fact it takes 2 to create an offspring, a woman shouldn't have FL domain over the decision to give birth or not. Hold on hear my logic! In the case a man doesn't want the baby, but the woman does, as it stands the man has to step up & take responsibility & I agree. But in the case a man wants the baby, but the woman doesn't, a it stands the woman is allowed to end a potential life even though that life is wanted by the person she went halves on the baby with. Now that's not right. If it takes 2 from conception, it also should take 2 on the decision, but no law should force a woman to do either. It should be the 2 that created it!

You sound stupid, you think therefore you are! Lol! In your logic one has to be well off to make a mistake yet be against abortion! Stupidity is well deserved! Mistakes happen, & in the case of those that live that lifestyle, they're barely living. Not to mention welfare is not the reason this country is in debt since everybody believes we are. You're just frustrated with your own stagnation & need somebody to point the finger at. " Michael Jackson, man in the mirror," 1 of my favorite songs! You should listen to the lyrics!

Fifty years of this now. The experiment does not work. Ph ukn like who res is the reality with state, local and federal governments paying cheerfully. From birth to adulthood and longer, the taxpayer pays several times more then a working family does. You freaking moronic imbecilic parasite.
