Friendly quick comparison... If say I am offended by your comment and choose to punch you in the mouth and you choose to punch me back... Would you think I started it?
I have never tried to shortchange Obama on getting bin laden, but since it was so easy a child could do it apparently, why it take Obama 3 years to do it?
And for that matter, who is to say the groundwork Bush laid during those 8 years didn't enable Obama to finally kill OBL? Does the guy who drives the last nail in a house get credit for building the whole thing?

Now lets see who Obumma blames, He can't complain about Bush in the 4 years before him. This election was a terrible mistake America.

He did come through on like 190 of his campaign promises, compromised with a good deal of them and failed around 50. I don't know the actual numbers but you can check the obameter (google it lol). President can't do everything. A lot of it is congress and when they bicker about the right color of shirts to wear, can be pretty rough.

"why (did) it take Obama 3 years to do it?"

Well Bush couldn't do it in 8 years, so what if it took Obama 3?

So your point is?

Donald Trump "YOUR'RE FIRED"!!!!!!!!!

What an effffing idiot. I see he took down many of those idiotic tweets. Because they were wrong. He screwed up his facts, as usual.
I believe he keeps saying these stupid things because he just wants his face out in the public.
He'll never run for President because he'd have to release his financials and the world will find out he's not as rich as he wants us to believe. His huge ego would be destroyed.

You know the red states are the ones that take the most money from the federal government right? Republicans are the welfare queens.

I hope Sean Hannity gets the biggest fine possible. He broke the law. Plus, Fox News has lost all credibility if they don't fire Dick Morris. What an idiot.
They both are such a discrredit to the Republican Party. And the fact that so many of you think Sean is the Pied Piper, you deserve to fall off in the sea of discontent. Too bad!!
Sean even thought Romney won all the debates. He's as out of touch as Romney is

the 50-50 actually helps voters stay more moderate. Multi-party systems sound nice, but lead to a lot more Fanaticism.

Think of it this way: Say you have a group of 10 dudes who are trying to figure out where to go out to eat. If the town only has two restaurants (a Hooters and a low-rent Hooters knockoff called TitWings), it's easier to get everybody to all agree on Hooters -- you only need six guys to come around. But if there are dozens of restaurants and each guy wants to go to a different one, they're all going to argue at the bar until they starve to death a month later. It's simply easier to bring people together when they don't have that many places to go. So despite how extreme Democrats and Republicans each claim the other party is, ideological polarization is less likely with only two parties.

For proof, look at the Galactic Senate. Or India. Let's just go with India. Multiparty systems foster excessive regionalism, with elected leaders focusing on trivial local concerns rather than larger national ones, the equivalent of that one lone guy who is zealous about eating at Buffalo Boobs despite the fact that it's not even a restaurant. This is the problem in India, which has so many political parties that we can't count them, making the country so difficult to manage that it's often called a "functioning anarchy."
