I can't believe you guys actually wanted Romney over Obama. What was it Romney could give, that Obama couldn't?

LOL.
All the Obama haters were so sure that he'd lose.
They need to reflect on everything they believe as they are surely lost and delusional.

Obama's Cold Heart
Barack Obama looks so warm and friendly on the podium. In Washington he's known as someone who actually dislikes people in person. He's possibly the only politician in the world who plays golf only with his aides.
Personal relationships with much of Washington - Obama is frighteningly weak. Last week, I asked a member of the Senate if he knows of anyone who really knows Obama. He said he does not. Washington is thick with stories about Obama's insularity and distance.
Obama's personal coldness and arrogance are in complete contrast with his media image of the candidate who empathizes with ordinary people. In reality, he can't even offer human warmth to grieving parents. Obama's coldness shocked and hurt the families of the men killed in the 9/11 al-Qaeda attack in Benghazi.
Sean Smith's mother:
They all came up to me and talked to me and everything. I cried on Obama's shoulder. And he -- then he'd kind of looked off into the distance. So that was worthless to me.
Obama's cold heart does not respond to people in anguish and need. He is not kind even to his own family. These are his closest relatives, people he's met personally on his visits to Kenya starting out as a young man, people about whom he wrote movingly in his fictionalized memoir, Dreams from My Father. When these relatives asked him for help for themselves and their village, Obama turned them down flat.
His father's sister, Barack's Aunt Auma, lives by selling coal on the road outside her village and can't afford basic medical care. Obama once gave her $140 six years ago, and she is still hoping he'll help with her dental problems. The author of ObamaCare has no help for her, either.
Barack Obama's very own half-brother, George Obama, lives in abject poverty, in a shack in a Nairobi slum. Yet it was not multimillionaire President Obama, but filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza whom George called for help when his son was sick in the hospital, telling D'Souza, "You are like a brother to me." "I have no one else to ask."
Obama is almost as cold-hearted about sharing his wealth with unfortunate people in America through charitable giving.
Americans are the most generous people on earth, with some exceptions. A typical middle-class American family give 3.5% of their income to charity. Multi-millionaires such as the Obamas and Romneys average 6%. The working poor give 4.5%, the most generous of all. Welfare poor (at the same income levels) give nothing.
Before deciding to run for president -- that is, before their giving level would be of interest to voters -- the Obamas gave between 0.4% and 1% of their income to charity. This is closest to the giving level of people on welfare.
At that time, State Senator Obama and Michelle were Harvard-educated lawyers, in professional jobs, with a combined income that put them among the top 10% of earners (that is, above $112,000). Michelle and Obama's combined earnings were $181,507 to $272,759 each year from 1998 to 2004. And they gave the same percentage single mothers on welfare give.

Kim Jung Un had NO military experience whatsoever before Daddy made him a four-star general. This snot-nosed twerp had never accomplished
anything in his life that would even come close to military leadership. He hadn't even so much as led a Cub Scout troop, coached a sports team, or
commanded a military platoon. So he is made the "Beloved Leader" of North Korea. Terrific.!

Oh crap.! I'm sorry. I just remembered that we did the same thing. We took an arrogant community organizer, who had never worn a uniform,
and made him Commander-in-Chief. A guy, who had never had a real job, worked on a budget, or led anything more than an ACORN demonstration,
and we made him President of the United States ---- TWICE.!!

Actually, you described Shrub to a Tee. Except, the Korean guy didn't need judges that his daddy appointed to select him POTUS.

Jets being given to whom?!?!? For fks sakes, junior...Watch something besides Faux news every once and a while.

Pres. Obama, has Afrikkan roots, but is an American.

Death and Taxes. That was a fact of life long before Pres. Obama.

Faux news, eh? Keep up?? With Faux news?

Absolutely. I will.

Hey, try and give me another link. Faux news isn't credible. They are the dumbest fks on the planet and I don't even believe the weather reports from that god awful outlet.

I assure you, any other link you provide will most certainly be a party to the wingnut propaganda machine...but by all means, continue.
