Romney Campaign Announces “Arab-Americans for Romney”

On Friday, October 12, 2012, the Romney campaign announced “Arab Americans for Romney,” a national coalition of Arab American supporters of Gov. Mitt Romney’s bid for the presidency of the United States.

In a statement released by the campaign, Governor Romney stated:

“I am very proud to have so many distinguished Arab-Americans on my team,” said Mitt Romney.“This country has been a beacon to people around the globe. The American Dream belongs to the world, but lately, it has been harder to pursue that dream. I am committed to bringing prosperity to the United States and creating the good jobs that foster opportunity and will inspire another generation of dreamers. Together, we will restore America to the land of possibility it has always been.”

National Honorary Chairs,“Arab Americans for Romney”
Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA)
Rep. Richard Hanna (R-NY)

It’s hard to take Mbuyiseni Ndlozi, the spokesperson of the South African wing of the international Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Movement, too seriously when he says that President Obama will be welcomed by “the mother of all protests” when he visits a University of Johannesburg campus Saturday. After all, both Obama and the United States are very popular in South Africa: Recent data from Pew found 74 percent confidence in Obama there, nearly double George W. Bush’s 32 percent.

Edmund Burke is oft quoted as saying "All that is necessary for Evil to succeed is for Good Men to do nothing' but I like this one, better: "When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle."
So much of what Burke's noted brilliance pertains to the subtle evil oozing from the Magic Negro. For example:
"The people never give up their liberties but under some delusion."
Security is the delusion here that the Magic Negro peddles while taking away Liberty.
Another one:
"Whenever a separation is made between liberty and justice, neither, in my opinion, is safe."
This, IMHO, applies to the Zimmerman case.
And this applies to the Magic Negro's trampling on Christian Hospitals and shielding of Muslim terrorists:
"Nothing is so fatal to religion as indifference."
He needs to have a foot placed squarely up his azz by every religious and even non-religious American.
(Lost one post already so hope this one doesn't post twice.)

The contradictions in this president's words is so glaring, it's amazing it hasn't been picked up and turned back on him.

He keeps inferring that al Qaeda is on the run. If the threats of terrorism have diminished, then why is the government building a huge expansive complex to house NSA in the middle of nowhere and Americans' privacy still being infringed upon?

This quote is as disturbing now as it was when Obama first made it after he was first elected:

"We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded."

So if terrorism is not the threat it once was according to this president and, yet, Americans' are still being spied upon to prevent another terrorist attack and Obama's enemies have already been targeted by the IRS and, because Obama believes we need a "civilian security force" that is "just as powerful as the military", there's something a bit unnerving and glaringly contradictory about this president's perception of who and what is a national security threat.

The truth of the matter is this president believes by his own words and actions that the biggest threat is from within - not from without.

He has made it quite clear that some of us are his enemies and some of us are his friends.

The good news is that we all know it now.

Oddly enough, the most obvious things are sometimes the hardest to see because seeing would be too hard to grasp.

History has proven it.

The book and mini series, Winds of War, really brought home your point about Hollywood's and even high-ranking military officials' view of Hitler which was in a whole different light in the 1930s because he threw such great gala parties.
The threats to the Jews came very subtly and unexpectedly when it was finally understood what was going on. Then it was too late.
By then, Hitler had already invaded Poland and soon most of Europe.
No one ever suspected he had a dark side just under the surface for years.
That was a real eye opener for me too. How Hitler came across as so non-threatening for so long to so many. Kind of hard to believe in retrospect.
Your defense of Hitler seems interesting if ill advised.

Will your visit your trove of information of World War II and European history to reveal how the threat to the Jews came unexpectedly.

At the moment you appear as an apologist for the Nazis!

Hobby Lobby - 1; ObamaKare - 0
Following on yesterday’s 10th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling that Hobby Lobby can continue its lawsuit against the Obama administration’s contraception mandate on religious grounds, the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Oklahoma ruled today that the federal government must halt all enforcement of the mandate (and related financial penalties) against the Christian-based company.
Hobby Lobby and sister company Mardel are suing the Department of Health and Human Services and Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, arguing that to force the company to pay for health insurance that must offer abortion-inducing drugs, as well as sterilization and contraception, is a violation of its religious liberty.
In his order issued on Friday, U.S. District Judge Joe Heaton said the “court concludes plaintiffs [Hobby Lobby] have made a sufficient showing to warrant the issuance of a temporary restraining order in the circumstances existing here."
"Accordingly, the defendants [Sebelius and HHS], their agents, officers, and employees are temporarily ENJOINED and RESTRAINED from any effort to apply or enforce, as to plaintiffs, the substantive requirements imposed” by the mandate," said the judge's order.
I went to a hobby store yesterday driving by a Hobby Lobby now that they think they are a church instead of a business, I chose not to shop at a store selling a pile of Chinese junk duping their customers for profit while claiming to be Christian..

I enjoy watching you make a fool of yourself, Ed.

"Why Bill O'Reilly now supports immigration reform"

"A border-security compromise struck by two Republican senators and the authors of the Senate’s bipartisan immigration reform bill is not only winning over perhaps a dozen or more Republicans to the cause: It’s also made an immigration reform believer out of Fox News host Bill O’Reilly."

"“It is time for the USA to pass immigration reform,” Mr. O’Reilly said on his show, "The O’Reilly Factor," Thursday night.“For years I’ve called for a more secure Southern border, you know that. And now it looks like the secure border is in reach, at least somewhat. So I hope this bill does become law.”

A simple google search could have prevented you making a fool of yourself.

Watched a special investigative report about Benghazi tonight on Fox.
Being reminded again of the gross incompetency and deliberate lies on the part of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton in the wake of what must have been unimaginable fear and brutality for four Americans who were abandoned after their distress calls were ignored and their security removed distresses me greatly.
Hillary Clinton does not deserve to hold any office in the government. Her incompetency in the unbelievable timeline of documented events left four Americans dead.
This president does not deserve the office or the title representing our nation and our military. Levers available to him to prevent the deaths of these Americans on 9/11 were not pulled.
Because of Benghazi alone, I pray for the day to come when he is removed from office.
If it was on FOX, it's filled wirth lies.

Haven't you figured that out yet??

FOX uses Benghazi to draw in idiots like you. Folks like you and Paula Deen with your built in racism, which you don't even know is racism.

You're an idiot who's been suckered. You opey your mouth wide, and FOX pours shiit into it, and you swallow and thank them.

You're a waste of humanity. And you will have 3 1/2 more years to suffer. Then Hillary wil take over for 8 years.

God doesn't listen to the prayers of hateful fake Christians like you.

I'm lovin' it!!
