As usual, he is being held captive by Congress.
As Ken Gude, vice president of the Center for Americana Preogress said,“Congress needs to accept that at least some Guantánamo detainees will end up in the U.S. for incarceration or trial in some form. One former Guantánamo detainee is currently residing in the maximum-security facility in Florence, Colorado, so the world isn’t ending. Congress has to accept that we are a dozen years past 9/11 and Osama bin Laden is dead.”
It was Republicans who placed a legal barrier in the National Defense Authorization Act, that prohibits defense funding from being used to transfer any Guantánamo detainees to the United States for any reason, including medical. Stupid conservatives.

You are a moron.
If the election were held today, Romney would win. Unfortunately, we learned Obama lied to us about Obamacare a year too late.

Obama has the lowest approval rating in his fifth year since Nixon.

Stupid AND lazy describes anyone who would prefer 'single-payer', i.e. our government monopolizing the health insurance industry.
Let's forget for a moment the obvious fact that our inept government couldn't efficiently run anything larger than a hotdog cart. These single-payer airheads have NO IDEA the power this would hand the government nor how many freedoms and choices we now enjoy would disappear...or maybe they do and just don't care?
Only disagree on one point. The federal government would burn the hotdogs.

OK, it is obvious you and your co-horts have never heard of Clean Air Asia or you wouldn't be looking like so stupid right now.
"Clean Air Asia" doesn't mean Asia has clean air!!! However, they have held workshops in China "discuss priority areas, feasible approaches and next steps for each key region and city cluster, based on their specific needs and on international and China experiences."
"The Clean Air Asia (formerly Clean Air Initiative for Asian Cities) is a registered UN Type II Partnership with more than 250 organizational members, eight Country Networks and the Clean Air Asia Center as its secretariat. Clean Air Asia’s mission is to Promote better air quality and livable cities by translating knowledge to policies and actions to reduce air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions from transport, energy and other sectors.
Our projects and activities are aimed at achieving the following outcomes:
Strengthened and harmonized regional and national and policies and standards
Enhanced national and local frameworks for sound policies, programs and urban development
Increased awareness and access to information, tools and partners"

when will you understand that ObamaKKKare is a wealth redistribution scheme that is unrelated to medical care???...
Don't recall ever not understanding that. Said it a few times in fact.

The Whole Foods Market alternatives doesn't promote redistribution through health care.

But I had to leave abruptly and didn't finish posting the other 7.

Several of them were Republican proposals. And promptly dismissed by Democrats.

I don't believe Romney or any Republican could have won that election.

Many people knew about Obama's pathetic Senate record, his politics, ideals, views, his anti-American political ideologies, his less than acceptable friends and shady associates, his sketchy past.

While the MSM may not have vetted Obama, many of us did and knew he was a fraud, fake and an anti-American lying fool from the beginning.
He was lying from the beginning. He was a liar from the beginning.

<quoted text>But but but, people are dying left and right in all those countries while waiting to see a doctor?
Lois Lame posted the other day that some people in those horrible single payer countries are waiting as long as EIGHT YEARS to see a doctor.
Waiting lists are a huge problem in Great Britain. Some examples: 750,000 are on waiting lists for hospital admission; 40% of cancer patients are never able to see an oncologist; there is explicit rationing for services such as kidney dialysis, open heart surgery and care for the terminally ill. Further, minimum waiting times have been instituted to reduce costs.“A top-flight hospital like Suffolk Est PCT was ordered to impose a minimum waiting time of at least 122 days before patients could be treated or the hospital would lose a portion of its funding.”

The NHS system offers comprehensive coverage. Because of rationing, care might not be as easy to get as advertised. Terminally ill patients may be denied treatment. David Cameron has proposed that the NHS refuse treatment to smokers or the obese.

BUT READ THIS....

Britons were horrified by a report released on Tuesday that documented "truly dreadful" care at an English hospital, from patients left moaning in their own waste to family members forced to bring in food.

The report says patients were ignored as they pleaded for clean sheets and even water, and it says certainly thousands died from the neglect. Britons, who take huge pride in their health service, were shocked by the findings of the report.

Still not as bad as Gore but then again, he made less than $200,000...barely enough to get by in his position.
Albert Arnold Gore Jr., 65, is a lot of things to a lot of people.

Among friends and fans, he’s the progressive Democrat who should have been president, visionary author and Internet prophet, the man who more than anyone drove climate change to the center of public consciousness.

Detractors see Gore as a limousine liberal, tiresome pedant and climate alarmist who lives a jet-setting, carbon-profligate lifestyle while preaching asceticism for everyone else [ain't that the truth.].

His work and writing on global warming have earned him a share of a Nobel Prize as well as a South Park cartoon parody in which he tries to scare school kids to his beliefs with a fictitious global-warming surrogate monster known as ManBearPig.

Whatever you think of Gore, one thing is indisputable: leveraging his aura as a technology seer and his political and climate work connections, Gore has remade himself into a wealthy businessman, amassing a fortune that may exceed $200 million [his plan all along, after all.].

A Happy & Healthy New Year!

While I'm not a Romney fan ...

I'll cut to the chase.

The Liberals have funded The Arts to study what effect Romance Novels have on Societal Culture to the tune of $1M per year.

I don't believe ANYBODY can justify that waste-without-benefit of tax payer dollars.

Only came to mind as a sidebar to who gave $ to whom ...

LOL. "Wisbangblog". Seriously?
Romney didn't give ANYTHING unless you count what he was FORCED to tithe to his church and what he donated to his own personal Tyler Foundation which gave money to such things as the anti-gay Massachusetts Family Institute; the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty....a year after its chairman, Seamus Hasson, compared marriage-equality activists to Al Qaeda; Belmont Hill School where all five of Romney's sons attended; the Best Friends Foundation, A program for troubled adolescents that advocates sexual abstinence; the boys and girls club of Boston where Romney campaigned; Brigham Young University, Romney's alma mater;
a couple of MS organizations, his wife's disease; etc.
If you look at what the Tyler Foundation actually gave to organizations that were not tied to the Romney family or useful to him personally its infinitesimal...$160,000 out of his $20+ million dollar earnings...less than 1%. Still not as bad as Gore but then again, he made less than $200,000...barely enough to get by in his position.
