I thought it was pretty humorous when he said it 4 years ago.

Its almost as funny as Romnet deciding to run as a moderate and expecting people to take him seriously and follow him.

OBama could of done great things is he didnt have a bunch of immature misfits fighting him at every corner from the first moment he took office willing to sacrifice the good of the country to prove political points.

<quoted text>Brown is a dope. But it's not like you to provide out of context quotes..
Michael Brown criticized President Obama for responding to Hurricane Sandy too early.
In an interview with Denver Westword, Brown said, "One thing [President Obama's] gonna be asked is, why did he jump on [Hurricane Sandy] so quickly and go back to D.C. so quickly when in ... Benghazi, he went to Las Vegas? Why was this so quick?... At some point, somebody's going to ask that question."[
I dont know what out of context you are referring to. Brown screwed up to such an extent on Katrina that he should of never opened his mouth on this subject.

Ever.

Ever.

I dont think there is another soul alive who would ask Obama that question. Maybe "I am not a racist - and this is not politics" Sununnu. Anyone normal would never conceptualize it that way, with 50 plus people dead. and 3 billion in damage, and the transportation disruptions that this thing is causing to the region.

My cousin is a staunch Republican - as staunch as they come - lives on the Jersey Shore - just lost his house and also half a condo to the storm. If you want, I can call him and ask him what he thinks about Browns quote.

<quoted text>NY Times - quite a reliable source. Reliably liberal. You may not have noticed - but Christie Never Gushes. I think your writer got a little overly artistic with his description of the event. I saw it - he didn't gush.
At this point, the NYTimes is merely telling it as it is.

"....When General Motors tells a presidential campaign that it is engaging in “cynical campaign politics at its worst,” that’s a pretty good signal that the campaign has crossed a red line and ought to pull back.

Not Mitt Romney’s campaign. Having broadcast an outrageously deceitful ad attacking the auto bailout, the campaign ignored the howls from carmakers and came back with more.

Mr. Romney apparently plans to end his race as he began it: playing lowest-common-denominator politics, saying anything necessary to achieve power and blithely deceiving voters desperate for clarity and truth....

GM’s spokesman Greg Martin

We’ve clearly entered some parallel universe during these last few days. No amount of campaign politics at its cynical worst will diminish our record of creating jobs in the U.S. and repatriating profits back to this country. At this stage we’re looking at a Hubble telescope-length distances between campaign ads and reality.”

This statement follows the e-mail sent by Chrysler’s CEO to Chrysler employees

““I feel obliged to unambiguously restate our position: Jeep production will not be moved from the United States to China.

Two good things have happened for Obama:

1. Chris Christie's serial (and very public) verbal hugs of him (re: Sandy).

2. Romney lying about Jeep jobs going overseas, and being publicly busted.

Good timing.

You couldn't have bought this kind of PR.

And on we go!

I got rid of my Jeep shortly before gas prices spiked a few years ago. At the time, I always assumed it was assembled overseas. Now I know my Jeep was assembled in Toledo. So this has been educational for me as well.

When I got rid of it, I looked into buying a Jeep hybrid, but they werent available yet. They were widely available in Europe. I think the job expansion in the US is because of the hybrid.

Which actually dispells TWO Romney myths simultaneosuly.
1) Jeep jobs going overseas
2) there is no future in alternative energy technologies

That is correct, but what facts do you rely on that the constitution is applicable to me or anyone else?

I pointed out various violations of the state constitution that state "officials " don't seem to care about.

I can't believe more people can't see what a fraud this guy is.

Wrong and inconsistent on so many counts.

From the time he declared, "I've been a hunter all my life" I knew he was full of it.

Correct. Messianic Jews do not follow the pagan customs of rome but follow the Torah, as Jesus commanded.
Some messianic "Jews" may have been born to Jewish mothers, hence that would make them technically Jewish. But their hodge podge of Christianity with a slight seasoning of Judaism can hardly be called "Jewish", and certainly not a part of Judaism. They are practicing Christian evangelism, and trying to paint it as being Jewish.
We in Israel are NOT the US, nor should we be judged by US laws and values. We also aren't Saudi Arabia or some other backward Arab country. We ARE a Jewish State, founded as a homeland for the Jewish people. We should be allowed to determine for ourselves whether we want to be forced to allow evangelical Christians, proseletising Muslems, adamant Buddhists, or any other religion to attempt to convert our people. We tolerate and even support normative Christian and Muslim practice here, but trying to convert Jews to other religions in our homeland would be not far from kidnapping the Pope in Rome, and forcing him to pray 5 times a day to Allah.
That said, a bomb is NOT an acceptable tool in any form of religious debate, no matte who's side I'm on. The perpetrators should be prosecuted, and the penalty is stiff here (western style). But keep these christian fanatics claiming to be jews away, we don't need them.

I was not around when the constitution was drafted nor have I signed and agreed to it.

What facts do you have that it is applicable to me?

Willful ignorance due to innate and carnal dislike of his opponent.

We see this even on this thread

If you want a sobering experience: Look at this article from the Israeli press - a somewhat objective opinion piece explaining to the Israelis why many or most American Jews are voting for Obama.

http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-429...

Then look at the comments. From some of the American Jews. Sobering. Yes, there are people out there like that, and sometimes they converge together to create their own reality. Ironic, considering the message of the article.

You talk big, but I bet you are the first to whine when you need a government service, or when you get arrested for civil disobedience.

I actually know people who try to live off the grid. Trust me, they dont live in Fairfield County, CT or anywhere within URL zone.

You don't have to sign and agree. Adopted by referendum of the people of CT. Amendments per document as adopted by referendum. Love it or Leave it. Or, at least acquiesce.

Are you trying to tell us that your interpretation of society and law requires each new born baby to sign off on each and every law before they are subject to it? That's chaos.

rabbee: you do realize that the last time, G-D gave TheTorah. and all, the other times before that. adam's mate was always a grandaughter of Avraham and Sarah, don't you? that would make everyone on earth, what you call jewish. with this time being, no different than any other time, HaShem has given this exact same story of creation each time. so that all of you, are not the first to fail, to get the point here and now in TheTorah Happening.

I don't need any government service, if there is some kind of monopoly on
services I am glad to pay for them.

But that doesn't escape the question of applicability of the constitution or laws.

So what you are saying is that there are no facts that the law and constitution is applicable.
