Romney is a lawyer whose entire career is based upon bankrupting companies as a vulture capitalist. But, he's white, so, that's alright.
Dolts like you prefer the kund who steal with guns and knives or the democrats who steal with the authority of government.

I'll take Romney any day.

Both. The seemingly programed response to kill oneself when cornered even if the mission is not completed is not normal. Self preservation is the strongest of emotions.

Well, I do know this.
"Citizens have set a date for 2.30 p.m. outside the House of Representatives in Nicosia to protest against the measures in time for the key debate and vote by deputies. The rally is expected to be one of the biggest the country has seen to date."

The bomb just got lowered on them yesterday. Today's rally is "expected to be one of the biggest the country has seen to date."
You aren't even a little bit disturbed about what's going on in Cyria?
Oh my goodness! The biggest to date? Does that mean 100 or more angry Cyprusians!!! There's still time for you and new yark to make it and she already has a mustache! bombs don't get lowered, carol, booms do. You know like the thingy that holds the jib up on a yacht? That's probably why the demonstrations have been so lightly attended up until now, they couldn't find enough people to look after their boats while they're gone? What about Benghazi, carol? Who's looking after that place and supervising the construction of the shrine to the fallen American heroes? Oh, the humanity! We seem to have to rob Peter to pay Paul?

So were they lying about Saddam being an eminent threat for 5 years from 1998 to 2002 or lying about Bush lying after they became political weasels?
It's so hard to keep up with you guys on the left sometimes. You're all over the place.
Here, dumb carol, you figure it out: "Imminent and Eminent

Both are adjectives. Imminent means something's going to happen really soon or occur at any moment. For example death of Sara is imminent.
The meaning of Eminent is prominent, standing out above others in quality or position.For example Dr. Walter is an eminent Physician."

<quoted text>just wait until the middle class sees Obama's redistribution plans as consequences they get stuck with.
if you want to see what your doctor's office will be like in advance of 2014--go to any emergency room and watch the welfare queens arrive by cab at their "walk-in" clinics. the way the ERs are swamped now, so will your local GP and pediatrician be. and many will see their premiums skyrocket as accessiblity to appointments and quality of care drops.
and then there's the redistribution of education $$. watch the already astronomical local property taxes jump up as Obama tries to cure the high rate of minorities failing schools by throwing your money at what is a social problem caused the a lack of parenting skills.
'President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act may not live up to its name for some who will see higher health insurance prices than available in today's market.
Experts believe the health care reform law, signed in 2010, will increase the sticker price of health insurance plans sold for 2014 and beyond, particularly for younger and healthier people. Today, these customers have access to relatively inexpensive plans with minimal benefits and high deductibles, but those will all but disappear when the law's new rules take effect. Everyone who buys health insurance on the individual market will gain better benefits and guaranteed coverage under Obamacare but, for some, these improved products will come at a price.

Educators say a district's youngest students are often among those with the worst attendance, in many cases because public preschool is not mandatory and parents regard it as little more than babysitting.
It's a problem that needs to be addressed, experts say, especially after President Barack Obama's recent proposal to expand funding of voluntary public prekindergarten for any 4-year-old whose family income is 200 percent or less of the federal poverty level, a $47,100 threshold for a family of four. He envisions it as a way to close the achievement gap for poor and minority students, improve high school graduation rates and ultimately strengthen the workforce.
That can't happen, educators say, if children don't show up and parents don't see its educational value.

Obama thinks we can spend our way out of debt. He thinks the present deficit is sustainable even though it's projected to reach $20 million by the time he leaves office. And he truly believes increasing taxes is the only way to keep wasteful government spending intact and to be our collective nanny.
In other words, he wants us to be like Europe. You haven't figured that out yet though, obviously.
One might think that by the time she figures it out, the Jerk-In-Chief will be playing golf in Hawaii and laughing his azz off.

But leoampleanus will probably never figure it out. She needs to be led by the nose everywhere.

I think most people agree Saddam had to go or at least be neutralized which he was for the most part after the first Gulf war. Only the hardcore rightwingers and those Democrats who bought Bush's lies thought it worth invading/destroying/rebuilding an entire country to accomplish.

Homer has remained consistent on this since Powell went before the U.N. to sell Bush's bs story.
