Barack Obama, our next President

I didn't lose anything you clueless twit. Mitt Romney does have sociopathic traits. He's outwardly charming but has no empathy as evidenced by his interaction with the guy in the wheelchair in New Hampshire.
www.youtube.com/watch...
He lies like a rug. He claimed that Chrysler was shipping Jeep production to China when in fact it was expanding production for that model right here in the US. He claimed that Obama "gutted the work requirement for welfare when in fact he was giving waivers to states to come up with better plans to get recipients to work. Something Romney himself had requested as Governor of Massachusetts. Even Republican Governor Sam Brownback called that a lie. He claimed that Obamacare would get between patients and their doctors when there's nothing in the ACA that would do any such thing.
How do you know he'd be putting people back to work? Do you have some portal into an alternate universe where Romney won? We should have more people working but the onus is on the GOP controlled House which has refused to even consider any legislation put forth by the President that would have done that. Romney's record in the private sector shows him to be more of a job destroyer tan a job creator.
You seem to keep forgetting that he had his shot in an executive position as Governor of Massachusetts and when he left office he had a 34% approval rating and the citizens of that state again soundly rejected him in the 2012 election by a 23% margin.
Contrary to your asinine statement, historically the middle class has always done better under progressive policies and foundered under the right wing.
He gave that man in a wheelchair his undivided attention and listened to his every word bending down to his eye level until he heard the entire story about his condition. He exchanged dialogue with him showing obvious empathy for his illness even though many other people were standing around waiting to shake his hand.

The issue of medical marijuana was not as understood or accepted in 2007 as it is today. Romney was put in a position of either having to spend a considerable amount of time debating this controversial issue with this one man or stating his stance on legalizing marijuana - medical or otherwise - while expressing his empathy and leaving it at that. It was not the time or place for anyone to ask a politician such a loaded question.

A lot of people at that time thought using marijuana for medicinal purposes was just an excuse to legalize it. Politicians "working a room" rarely, if ever, get into a political debate over a controversial issue with one person in the room.

Romney, I'm sure, considered it a "gotcha" question and wasn't going to tell the man something he couldn't promise or back up after being put in that compromising position.

If he was against legalizing marijuana, he couldn't very well say he personally would not have anyone arrested for breaking the law.

People's opinion about medical marijuana have changed with more information and education over the years. If asked the same question today, Romney might have had a completely different answer.

Romney responded no differently than any other politician when asked a "no win" question working a crowded room. For all we know, the man in the wheelchair could have been a plant.

In California, using marijuana for medicinal purposes had become a farce. Everyone had some kind of medical issue and prescriptions were being handed out like candy. Marijuana stores were on every street corner.

Maybe you can see it in a different light now.

All of your other claims are just that. Claims without substance.

A liberals obsession and addiction to obama is Not only amusing, but curious...

Liberalism is a psychological condition where these idiots become sympathetic towards their abuser, in which a deranged liberal develops emotional attachment rather than "recusing themselves" from their abuser or controlling entity or in obama's case a black man.

This condition called Trauma Bonding, a liberal chooses to remain loyal to their abuser (obama) because they made him into or has become a victim....

Three Russian warships crossed Turkey's Bosphorus Strait Thursday en route to the eastern Mediterranean, near the Syrian coast, amid concern in the region over potential US-led strikes in response to the Damascus regime's alleged use of chemical weapons.

The SSV-201 intelligence ship Priazovye, accompanied by the two landing ships Minsk and Novocherkassk passed through the Bosphorus known as the Istanbul strait that separates Asia from Europe, an AFP photographer reported.

Well, that's just an outright lie, Lily.

Romney said preventing a nuclear Iran is the "highest national security priority" for the U.S.

Think that's what Obama said too in so many words.

Obama continually said all options were on the table. Pretty sure you know what that means.
