You're in good company. Schieffer made the same mistake during the third debate.
I should have read ahead.

Is there an echo in here?

I saw a bumper sticker this morning that said Barak Obama 2012. It was written entirely in Hebrew. Talk about a select audience.
On the same note, there was an article in Slate today about how the GOP superpacs have speant millions of dollars in Florida on billboards and other things vilifying Obama reagrding Jewish issues. The article noted that by all polling, the media blitz was a huge waste of money as it has not moved the vote any significant amount. Last poll had Florida Jews 75% Obama 25% Romney I think.
Though of course that won't stop Romney and his ilk from pandering their asses off any chance they get.

If I were a chosen person, I'd be downright insulted by it all!

Those types of adds only work on the uneducated/uninformed. Hardly the demographics they were going for.
Blatant pandering by CoR!

To be honest (as if I need a reason to dislike Romny) I am insulted by the crudeness.

The last election was the first election in memory where Republicans started pandering for a Jewish vote. Up to then, although Jews were predominately Democrats, the notion of Israel was strongly bipartisan. Since then, they have tried to make it a wedge issue. I guess it is a sign of recognition that Jews vote.

The other side was vehemently against Hillary-Care too.
Remember the scary commercials?
That wasn't even for universal healthcare per se.
I don't acually recall the details.
I'm sure Hillary has blocked it out too.
Oh I remember.

But Obama-care was patterned after a bipartisan consensus of ideas that were originally republican, such as the exchanges. It suddenly became radioactive after Obama took office.

They're saying now it all may come down to 4 counties in Ohio.

Our system sucks but it's the best one there is.

Who said that? Someone famous. I paraphrase of course.

Oct. 24: In Polls, Romney’s Momentum Seems to Have Stopped

"....Take Wednesday’s national tracking polls, for instance.(There are now eight of them published each day.) Mr. Romney gained ground in just one of the polls, an online poll conducted for Reuters by the polling organization Ipsos. He lost ground in five others, with President Obama improving his standing instead in those surveys. On average, Mr. Obama gained about one point between the eight polls.

This is the closest that we’ve come in a week or so to one candidate clearly having “won” the day in the tracking polls — and it was Mr. Obama...."

They also say the best form of government is a benevolent dictatorship. Who exactly are "they" that keep saying these things.

Sounds like 'Father Knows Best.'

I still remember my parents saying "This [family] isn't a democracy."

Israelis are the children of God because of their inheritance. When Christians trust and accept God and through Jesus' blood the Gentiles are adopted children into the Jewish family but, we still keep faith in God of Abrahamn that He indeed, did send Jesus to make it possible fir the gentiles to be in God's family. This is the truth, that yes, Jesus connects us all to God.

Colin Powell announced this morning he will again vote for President Obama, handing the president a rare endorsement from across the aisle and taking a few shots at Mitt Romney in the process.
"I’m not quite sure which Governor Romney we would be getting with respect to foreign policy," the former secretary of state said on CBS's This Morning. "I don’t sense he’s thought through these issues as thoroughly as he should have. He gets advice from his campaign staff that he then has to modify as he goes along."
rabbee: the only reason the election, is not held oct 31st. is because they do not want, you to see who you are really voting for. no longer in their, sheeps clothing.

rabbee: well that is what, a true theocracy is supposed to be. a frinedly dictatorship, hearing G-D and also hears the people. you cannot have a true government, without a friend with G-D. that never assumes, G-D is on our side when we are not on the side of G-D.
