Putting Mitt Romney's attacks on 'You didn't build that' to the Truth-O-Meter
In speeches and videos, the Romney campaign has repeatedly distorted Obama's words. By plucking two sentences out of context, Romney twists the president's remarks and ignores their real meaning.
The preceding sentences make clear that Obama was talking about the importance of government-provided infrastructure and education to the success of private businesses.
Romney also conveniently ignores Obama's clear summary of his message, that "the point is ... that when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together."
By leaving out the "individual initiative" reference, Romney and his supporters have misled viewers and given a false impression. For that, we rate the claim False.
http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/state...
but we still have nutjobs ignoring the truth. is that part of the Bagger religion? no doubt. whatsoever.
The Republicans can't do anything without lying or stealing:

A Florida judge ruled Thursday that the GOP-controlled state legislature illegally drew congressional districts to primarily benefit the Republican Party, and ordered them redrawn. The legislature is expected to appeal the ruling, and this fall's elections are unlikely to be affected.

Republicans haven't controlled the White House or U.S. Senate for more than five years. Yet their House majority — now 234 to 199 — looks safe this fall. Redistricting episodes in Florida and North Carolina help explain why.

"Terrorist attacks and deaths hit record high, report shows
By Daniel Burke, CNN"
http://religion.blogs.cnn.com/2013/10/28/terr...
"Washington (CNN)– As terrorism increasingly becomes a tactic of warfare, the number of attacks and fatalities soared to a record high in 2012, according to a new report obtained exclusively by CNN.
More than 8,500 terrorist attacks killed nearly 15,500 people last year as violence tore through Africa, Asia and the Middle East, according to the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism.
That’s a 69% rise in attacks and an 89% jump in fatalities from 2011, said START, one of the world’s leading terrorism-trackers."
You really are an idiot Ghost.
As usual the idiot would be you moron....Your hero Bush created damn near all of the messes we face today. He allowed us to be attacked ignoring all warnings...Then attacked an innocent Muslim nation based on greed and lies...Obama has kept us far safer and he got "OSAMA", Dumbo. All you idiots on the right drink the very same koolaid.

Akin was so determined to justify opposition to abortion in all cases. including rape, that he simply either lied or was grossly ignorant.....
the man was a fool and should have had the common decency to drop out of the race....and Romney should have demanded that Akin do so.....
if you want to win other issues on the facts, you cannot continue to argue a lie....
one could also discuss how anti-abortion zealots would react if their own children were impregnated by rapists.... but that's another subject.....

Quick glance at the night shift shows that Galt gave a super smack down to Carol who was vehemently defending Akins rape comments; Roxie intervened to stop Carol from continuing on with her defense; Carol then lies and agrees that abortion and gay marriage are not the most important issues!!
You guys should start a comedy show. Thereafter debil asks if she has any dead baby photos and she complies and posts several links of them.
Does this make Carol any better than him? I say no. Get that shyt off of here.

The pictures of what Gosnell did are indeed shocking. The man after all was convicted of murder.

Some photos are disturbing--I see many photos of ISIS mass murders. We cannot pretend these things do not happen.

how? multi-tasking at $50 an hour.

mixing rap music whilst 'arguing' with your sort holds a certain sense of irony that is somewhat appealing.

I have no idea what those photos were, I wouldn't look at them; anyone who would want to is sick in the head. Carol in one post agrees with Galt that abortion and gay marriage shouldn't be the important issues; then, next, she posts dead fetus photos. She is a perverted twisted religious zealot and it doesn't take much to expose it; Debil did it with one question! It was so easy! The debil tempted the holier than though born again Christian and she took the bait.
She's a simpleton. She even kept defending Akins rape comments, blaming them on the Liberals! Give it the fk up already; she should listen to Galt who is the only voice of reason on this forum.

The Republican-led House has passed more than 15 bills that will spur job growth while the Democratic-led Senate has failed to act.
House Passed Jobs Bills
H.R. 910, the Energy Tax Prevention Act - restricting the EPA to implement burdensome new rules and regulations on American businesses that will have a significant negative impact on America’s economy while having no positive impact on global temperatures.
H. J. Res. 37, Disapproval of FCC’s Net Neutrality Act - prohibits the FCC from imposing net neutrality regulations on Internet providers crippling competition, restrict innovation, reduce employment and raise costs for all consumers..
H.R. 2018, the Clean Water Cooperative Federalism Act - would allow each state to make determinations relating to the State's water quality standards. This would reduce the federal government’s power over individual state’s water quality standards and increase job growth.
H.R. 1315, Consumer Financial Protection & Soundness Improvement Act - increase accountability to help prevent harmful job-killing regulations.
H.R. 2587, Protecting Jobs from Government Interference Act - prohibits the National Labor Relations Board from ordering any employer to close, relocate or transfer employment under any circumstance.
H.R. 2401, Transparency in Regulatory Analysis of Impacts on the Nation (TRAIN ACT)- would push back against the EPA's unconstitutional, outrageous rules and regulations that raise energy prices for consumers, destroy jobs and increase dependence on foreign sources of energy.
H.R. 2681, Cement Sector Regulatory Relief Act - prohibits EPA regulations from coming into effect which would place burdensome regulations on the cement industry and stop the unnecessary cement MACT rule which will cost thousands of jobs and hamper economic growth.
Others:
H.R. 872, the Reducing Regulatory Burdens Act
H.R. 2250, EPA Regulatory Relief Act
H.R. 2273, Coal Residuals Reuse and Management Act
H.R. 1230, Restarting American Offshore Leasing Now Act
H.R. 1229, Putting the Gulf of Mexico Back to Work Act
H.R. 1231, Reversing President Obama’s Offshore Moratorium Act
H.R. 2021, the Jobs and Energy Permitting Act of 2011 - eliminate needless permitting delays stalling important energy production opportunities off the coast of Alaska requiring EPA to take final action – granting or denying a permit – within six months.
H.R. 1938, North American-Made Energy Security Act - Keystone Pipeline
Yeah you've trotted these out before and none of them is actually a jobs bill but instead they seek to weaken environmental protections, consumer protections and in the case of HR 2587 making it easier for companies to use relocation as punishment for labor actions or extortion to prevent them. These bills deserved to die.
