The bottom line is that I don't care how many doobies he rolled in Hawaii, who he listened to or read in college, which jagoff's sermon he sat through in his life, they don't matter. He's President of the United States of America (again) and he has my undivided support. I took an oath a long, long time ago which will never expire so relax, I'll be the first and the loudest to demand action when I see him harm America.
BTW, trimming 30% of the management fat is not the same as closing a production line and laying off rank and file workers. It doesn't weaken Boeing but rather it makes the company leaner and more competitive. Lockheed cut 25% of their fat and they're the prime contractors on the most expensive tactical aircraft in history. Remove the punditry and you see Boeing as very competitive for an aerospace giant that is currently between defense and space contracts.
You go, Champ. It's like the Super Bowl of US Politics. Losers scream and most of us get over it. I was Romney, too. But, I knew, deep down, he didn't have a chance. Nothing like talk show visits and Hollywood appearances to cement the deal. One of the many reasons I read this thread and not participate. It's like talking to the birds in the back yard. Having to give woot woot a chance to respond to me makes me want to wrap these pipes around that filthy neck and show him what this 80 year old can do. But, it's the Internet. Where do you get your patience?

Exactly...it's the internet. Knowing there will be no reaching out is cause for infinite patience, its kind of like Neo in The Matrix, there is no spoon.

Uzi's are all legitimate concerns, they're just grossly outdated. I voted to keep peace in the family...it ain't easy being Independent in a house full of Republicans...a move towards shalom in the home. I knew immediately that I had wasted it but my vote doesn't count in the electoral college anyway so whatevs.

I hope I've missed some amazingly dramatic fall colors this year.

No gloom and doom predictions from me. I lived thru communist and socialist regimes. I know what he is talking about, he knows what he is talking about. you people dont, not yet, it will come to you sooner or later. I hope there will be enough time to save the USA. Just a little reminder, who are the happiest governments to see this idiot reelected?? How about Iran,Russia, China, a few South American dictators, the Muzlim Brotherhood and so on and they aint hiding their happines about it.
God help and Bless America.

The love and admiration for the USA and the love of the American people is NEVER outdated. The big hoaxer just blinded 50% of the people, the dumb people of the USA. I hope some common sense will somehow save the greates country in the world from itself.

A British Engineer has just started his own business in Afghanistan.

He's making land mines that look like prayer mats.

It's doing well.

He says prophets are going through the roof.

That's us...the other 50% watching America's back, or in congressional terms, the majority.

If you care about the US as you say (and I know you do), trust those of us who will honor our pledge to fight for it and stop trying to divide it. Whatever it is we end up doing, be it recovering or be it communizing, we do it better when we work together;-)

Uzi's the least of the problems posting here. Christ, I have enough of his e-mails to deal with. I'm talking about the douche bags that jump in with their Jew hatred brainless posts that can not be addressed one on one. It's not what they do. See you later on the private channel.

The House republicans have, in the last few years, been the biggest obsticle to bipartisan solutions...when John Boehner can't get them to react for the good of the country, there is a serious problem....And now that they have been flagged, any continuation would only make the GOP, less and less significant.....

You just described a John Boehner who is two elections away from any real power. If he doesn't realize this by now, he's either wildly out of touch or the worst speaker in history. Let's hear his tone now that he knows the President is back for four more...OH, DAMN! No time for that, he'll have to prepare for mid-terms.

I'm not sure Boehner is the enemy he seems....more the tea party and obstructionist element amoung the republican representatives, is where the problem lies....We all saw, how he lost any possibility to actually lead, during the debt limit negotiations....

Sure, Part 1 was a lot of muscle flexing and posturing because the GOP was certain they'd own the White House for the next eight years. Except for a few who are still scratching their heads I think those days are finally over...

Those at the top of the conspiracy to stall the Dems out of office seem to see the error of their ways and are at least paying lip service to a more inclusive, results-oriented style of governance.

Weird.

You'd think after fourteen years of either killing communists or training to kill communists, I'd have a better sense for this. If we were talking about gays, my gaydar would be broken.

I guess you had to be there i.e. live under communism/socialism. Lucky you, thats why all ran to the USA and tried to get in any way from those places called "workers paradise".
Well about gays, one of the nices things is to wake up to sex in the morning unless you are in jail.
Have fun.
