We heard Romney:“President Obama promised to begin to slow the rise of the oceans and heal the planet.[Laugh.] My promise is to help you and your family.”

What's so ticklish about rising oceans?

How could Romney help other families when he preferred to ignore the rising oceans?

Oh .. that's no issue because the large Romney clan would expect us to take care of them in the WH.

Almost as ticklish as this!

This democrat thinks continents and islands float in the sea apparently. He's a tad smarter than Ohbummer, it would seem.

The Dem's get all bent out of shape when a politicians doesn't keep referring to 'I' and 'me' in every other sentence. It let's their minds start wandering off into independent thought. It scares them. It scares their political figures even more.

I thought it had to do with Gore saying the ice is melting and causing the oceans to rise. Maybe I'm wrong.

Obama has figured out that making Americans poor causes the ocean levels to drop.

Didn't you guys did politics on the global warming forum.

Romney was right. Libs want to have big problems that take a lot of money and can't be solved within our lifetimes. That way by the time te gig is up, they've collected all te cash they could and got the h ll out of dodge.

Taking someone elses money is easy. Earning their own money is much too hard and takes work. Its the liberal way. Obama was one of the most liberal senators so he is following the party m.o..

Have you seen 2016 ???
This guy is a ticking time-bomb who wants to end freedom as we know it. Ownership should belong to the government, which includes all LAND. And he wants to give your money (ALL money) to anyone who is poor, especially other countries. AND if he happens to end up the King or RULER - it would be okay with him.

Yes we do have a fan club. Sorry you’re the only one that belongs to the useless babble tainted with hate club. Our intention is to stop your useless babble and get you to answer a second grade question. Now we do know you attended school but well no need to repeat your issues with education. Hay unlike you that count on spell check to post a correctly spelled word I say we do a magnificent job on our own. See if you attended school an error or two in spelling would be great. Now then post your useless babble without the cut and paste thing and spell check and we will grade your own work. We know it’s a stretch but give it a go.

Obama doesn't even take care of his own brother. What's he really going to do about the oceans? Democrats are all nuts.

He'd probably claim an ability to fix both those things, if only we elected him President for Life.

Was the movie produced by the Enquirer? Did it have that bat-faced boy in it? Any mention Jennifer Anniston's pit obsession?

Some people will believe anything without bothering to think or research on their own... sort of like believing Paul Ryan when he insinuated that our credit downgrade was Obama's fault when S&P clearly blamed house republicans for it (of which Ryan was one of them.) Look it up.

If you think your party (all of 'em) is a shining example of virtue and altruism you are sadly mistaken...

Scientists will tell you about man made global warming.
Other people say it is a natural cycle.
Only a complete idiot says it is not happening.

Mitt Romney-complete idiot.
