There's a fundamental difference between alternate parties and the big two and with that most of America. The alternate parties still understand the proper role of legitimate government as revealed by the Enlightenment and expressed in the Declaration of Independence and implemented by the Constitution, both parties and most americans have lost that. Government is regarded now as all powerful except within the specific restraints we put on it. We limit government to keep its propensity for total authority at bay through instruments like the Magna Carta. This conflicts with the founder's proposition that we have inalienable natural rights and as such are free to form societies and to choose representative governments which only have the authorities we expressly grant them. We don't restrict their omnipotence, we bestow this limited authority and any government that reaches beyond what we grant them is illegitimate.
Then again, maybe this herd state is our natural state and we just need someone to tell us what to do so we can get back to watching Idol.
I am not adverse to a third party candidate and have mentioned that I like many of the things that your candidate stands for; however it will be even harder for a strong third party to emerge from the sidelines since the Supreme Court sold our country to the corporations. This ruling must be overturned and true campaign finance reforms created. The obscene amounts of money that must be raised is beyond sickening.

That is called DENIAL.
I provided you with lists of dozens news sites including CNN, CBS, NBC, WaPo, etc and you were too cowardly(not leap of faith) to enlighten yourself about what the WH originally claimed.
So I'm just supposed to take it all as some proof of what the right wing media have been saying?

Pretty weak dude. If that's all you can offer than you need to just keep the BS amongst you conservatives and keep acting the same way you all act when I post something from TAC that you can't come up with a reply too that won't make you look like a FOXbot.

And so it goes, and Gunner, "It's OUR fault his hope and change BS failed, not HIS.

More interesting he laid it at the feet of those who voted for him in his tweet. " Of course, the truth is the whole hopey-changey thing was limited in its success by a Republican Congress that blocked Obama's full economic recovery policy that ,according to Moody's would have lowered unemployment to 6%-- it was renegade Republicans who swore to do anything to make Obama fail ,even collapsing the U S economy into another recession that provoked Moody's to downgrade the U S credit rating for the first time ever .

Anderson Cooper admits CNN found Christopher Steven's journal inside U.S. consulate and used it in reporting but took 3 days to admit. Cooper referenced 'someone who was familiar with the ambassador's thinking' when interviewing about Libya attack.

That someone was Stevens who was deeply concern about security, being at one time on the Al Qaeda #1 hit list and increasing unrest in the region.

CNN did notify the family they had the journal and returned it to them.

I think it would have been best if he identified the source.

No, your failure to even choose from any of the news sources shows your own extreme weakness. There is NO way you can you can call news source such as CNN, NYT, WaPo, NBC as right wing news.

Your insult was weak and childish as your are being a MMbot who is refusing to look at any news source.

Mitt Romney packed the audience for a Univision forum earlier this week, BuzzFeed’s McKay Coppins reports, busing in local supporters “after exhausting the few conservative groups on campus.” The campaign threatened to “reschedule” the event if organizers did not allow the “rowdy activists from around southern Florida in order to fill the extra seats at their town hall.”

Romney also refused to come out on stage after the hosts introduced him by noting that he “had agreed to give the network 35 minutes, and that Obama had agreed to a full hour the next night.” Univision re-taped the introduction after Romney allegedly “threw a tantrum.”

During the event, Romney dodged four questions about whether he would maintain President Obama’s directive allowing young undocumented immigrants to stay in the United States on a temporary basis and said that he is happy to be known as “the grandfather of Obamacare.”

Romney has a history of padding the audience. During a speech before National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO) in June, the GOP presidential candidate also brought in his supporters to the address.

His plan was good, but in reality all he's done the past four years is make America worse. He hasn't done any of the things he said he was gonna do

No, no, to militias,” the giant crowd chanted as it marched along a lake in the center of Benghazi, filling a broad boulevard. They carried banners and signs demanding that militias disband and that the government build up police to take their place in keeping security.“Benghazi is in a trap,” signs read.“Where is the army, where is the police?”

Al-Jazeera also reported that rally organizer Muhammed Abujanah said the protestors were demonstrating against extremism, as it was “part of the [militia] problem.” Libyans soundly rejected Islamist parties at the ballot box and Libyan public opinion is strongly pro-American after a U.S.-led intervention toppled dictator Moammer Qaddafi last year.

The conservative dilemma.

1)vote for Romney. If he wins, they're stuck with him for 8 years. You know Romney is not a true conservative.

2) Vote for Obama, & get your true conservative in 4 years. You know Biden won't run.

3) Vote third party to send a message to the Republican Party bosses.

Non-Christian and non-Jewish sources (principally Roman and Greek) consist of the writings of a number of Greek or Roman historians and refer to the history of Jesus because of the trouble the Christian movement was causing in the empire at atonements which could be presented through Judea, where the mischief originated, but through the city of Rome also."

I do appreciate you sharing your mythology.

In a recent documentary, The God Who Was Not There, former fundamentalist, Brian Flemming, starts out by reminding us that the folks who expect us to believe the truth of Jesus Christ were the same folks that enforced the 'truth' that the sun revolves around the earth by putting to death anyone who suggested that the earth revolves around the sun. This disposition towards truth creates deep distrust. In the name of faith, belief co-opts fact. The world is becoming all too aware of this sleight of hand. I have heard the traditional holiday greetings given as “Merry Hoodwink” and Easter as “Happy Hogwash.”

Flemming’s documentary and another which appeared recently, called Zeitgeist, as well as books and websites gather evidence that the Biblical story of Jesus Christ was no more than the equivalent of an “urban legend” woven together of mythic themes current in first century Mediterranean culture.

The case against Jesus contributes to a wave of anti-religious thinking, known as “anti-theism” or “the new atheism” that is growing in importance and gaining louder and louder voices. Bill Maher's film, Religulous, adds to this chorus. They all have an important message. In their zealotry Christians (and other theists) are deluded into forms of behavior that are dysfunctional in the twenty first century, as is all fundamentalism, and are distracted from seeing the manipulation of power in history hidden behind their gentle man of Galilee.

In their attack on the "religulous," all the films and sites present very convincing evidence that Christian believers have little or nothing upon which to base their faith.
