From 1943 to 2005, you have 25 democrats that served! WOW! Pathetic! I notice Bill the molester Clinton isn't on the list of those that served and neither is Obama. Clinton as we know was too busy molesting women and Obama was too busy hating America.

Say Danny, I bet you never served. Probably afraid you might hurt yourself or get your little hands dirty.

http://www.boston.com/news/nation/articles/20...

"Mitt had decided to leave Stanford after his freshman year and go on a 30-month mission to spread the Mormon faith overseas. It was the same path his father, and generations of Mormon men before him, had taken upon turning 19. As a missionary, Mitt was declared ''a minister of religion'' by the church and, under an agreement with the Selective Service, granted an exemption from the draft."

http://guardianlv.com/2012/07/mitt-romney-dra...

"Romney was also a pro war activist, staging a counter demonstration in 1968 at Stanford University, against antiwar civilians denouncing Stanford’s draft status tests. If he was so pro war, why not skip the draft altogether and enlist."

too bad the right wing did not ask romney why he did not enlist?
or hang a chickenhawk tag on him.

read what you post dumbass;

"A combination of high crude prices, refinery shutdowns, and early speculation has sent gas prices soaring to seasonal highs earlier than usual this year, with no signs of prices at the pump falling until spring, according to recent estimates."

Obviously Michelle hasn't looked in the mirror....she must go 190-200 pounds.

I am sick of hearing about Michelle's fit arms! They only use her arms because that's all she has. She has giant sized hips and buttocks, a small chest. But she has ARMS!! How many of you men out there get turned on by a woman's arms? I would bet none of you do.

Iraq and Afghanistan Wars Have Cost Americans $3.7 Trillion so far.$12,000 Per Person:

US War Costs Reach $3.7 Trillion
Iraq and Afghanistan Wars Have Cost Americans $3.7 Trillion,$12,000 Per Person

A study conducted by Brown University’s Watson Institute for International Studies found that over the past 10 years the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have cost United States taxpayers a total $2.3 to 2.7 trillion, with a final tally being at least $3.7 trillion, an average of $12,000 per American citizen. According to the study, titled,“Costs of War”( www.costsofwar.org ) in 2011 the United States Congress has given $1.3 trillion to the Department of Defense for war spending. Projected costs do not include care for wounded US veterans and interest on the war debt.

At least $185 billion has been spent on interest payments so far. The Reuters news agency, according to CBS, estimates a further $1 trillion will be spent paying off war debt.

The final costs aren’t going to be known for decades, if ever. Aside from costs to American taxpayers, the cost to Iraq and Afghanistan in repairing destroyed infrastructure, caring for people with disabilities and lost income from people who were killed may never be tallied. By the end of 2009, the U.S. had spent $44.6 billion on rebuilding Iraq, half of which was on the Iraqi military and security forces, according to a 2010 article in USA Today.

"Let Detroit go bankrupt" -Mitt Romney

"If I'm elected will pump 2 trillion dollars into defense spending" - Mitt Romney

"This President has done nothing to create job growth and throws billions at healthcare and disabled vets"- Mitt Romney

Under Bush's TARP program:

Potential conflict of interest:

There was concern that the current plan created a conflict of interest for Paulson. Paulson was a former CEO of Goldman Sachs, which stood to benefit from the bailout. Paulson has hired Goldman executives as advisors and Paulson's former advisors have joined banks that were also to benefit from the bailout. Furthermore, the original proposal exempted Paulson from judicial oversight. Thus there was concern that former illegal activity by a financial institution or its executives might be hidden.[66][67][68]

The treasury staff member responsible for administering the bailout funds is Neel Kashkari, a former vice-president at Goldman Sachs.

In the Senate, Senator Judd Gregg (R-NH) was the leading Republican author of the TARP program while he had a multi-million dollar investment in the Bank of America.
