After all, reparations should be paid, right libs?
It's bad news for those who are not fans of Obama who want the economy to recover. If Romney wins, it means at least a decade of continuing depression.

On the other hand, Romney might make things bad enough for people to do something about it. I think people are tired of having their wealth stolen.

Yea because the nearly $6 trillion added by Obama has been so beneficial. NOT!

Hey Skippy, we are in a recession. The Bush recession OFFICIALLY ended 2009-JUN. This one is all Obama. But of course mental midgets, as yourself, will keep on blaming Bush. NEWSFLASH: Bush no longer POTUS since 2009-JAN-21

In honor of the 44th President of the United States , Baskin-Robbins Ice Cream has introduced a new flavor: Barocky Road.

Barocky Road is a blend of half vanilla, half chocolate, and surrounded by nuts and flakes. The vanilla portion of the mix is not openly advertised and usually denied as an ingredient. The nuts and flakes are all plentiful.

The cost is $92.84 per scoop...so out of a hundred dollar bill you are at least promised some CHANGE..!

When purchased it will be presented to you in a large beautiful cone, but after you pay for it, the ice cream is taken out of the cone and given to the person in line behind you at no charge.

You are left with an almost empty wallet, staring at an empty cone and wondering what just happened. Then you realize this is what "redistribution of wealth" is all about.

Aren't you just stimulated?

We are not in a recession: that is non-factual. The PREVIOUS recession was not Bush's FAULT, it merely occurred during his Presidency. YOU are falsely claiming that your current, imaginary "recession" is somehow Obama's fault, also false.

Money added to the national debt has indeed been beneficial, in that spending is how you get out of a recession - and we did.

Any more brilliant observations, genius?

Well, given the fact that there is no viable third party candidate this year, so either Obama or Romney will be President for the next four years, your criteria suggests that the lesser of the two evils is still preferable.
Unless, of course, you PREFER greater evil.
I actually prefer a better choice. The only third party guy that has a mathematical possibility of winning the elecorate is Johnson. However, the complete media silence and media manipulation, nobody knows who he is.

So personally I refuse to the play game. Why vote? WTF is the point? No matter what the results are, whether Obama or Romney, we the people are screwed.

No matter who wins, we lose.

EXCLUSIVE: CIA operators were denied request for help during Benghazi attack, sources say
By Jennifer Griffin
Published October 26, 2012
FoxNews.com


Fox News has learned from sources who were on the ground in Benghazi that an urgent request from the CIA annex for military back-up during the attack on the U.S. Consulate and subsequent attack several hours later was denied by U.S. officials -- who also told the CIA operators twice to "stand down" rather than help the ambassador's team when shots were heard at approximately 9:40 p.m. in Benghazi on Sept. 11.
Former Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods was part of a small team who was at the CIA annex about a mile from the U.S. Consulate where Ambassador Chris Stevens and his team came under attack. When he and others heard the shots fired, they informed their higher-ups at the annex to tell them what they were hearing and requested permission to go to the consulate and help out. They were told to "stand down," according to sources familiar with the exchange. Soon after, they were again told to "stand down."
Woods and at least two others ignored those orders and made their way to the Consulate which at that point was on fire. Shots were exchanged. The quick reaction force from the CIA annex evacuated those who remained at the Consulate and Sean Smith, who had been killed in the initial attack. They could not find the ambassador and returned to the CIA annex at about midnight.

Until there is actual reform to the Electoral college, it will not matter.

Now when the Electoral College was established it was a good thing. Mode of transportation at the time was horse. So communication were very limited.

Now, the electoral college is not needed.

But both candidates and both of the big parties, Republican and Democrat are corrupt and bought off by special interests. They no longer represent the people, they represent who ever pays them off and gives them bribes. And with the super pacs, nobody knows where the money is actually coming from.

Look at administrations going all the way back to LBJ. It is special interest after special interest after special interest. Even Reagan was apart of it. Nothing has changed.

The people only have an illusion of choice when there really is no choice.

You can probably ask anyone who Gary Johnson or Jill Stein are and they will look at you with this dumbfounded look on their face and go, "huh?". And this is my point.

No matter which of the D or R's win, we the people have already lost. The special interest and campaign bribes win every time. The laws that the elected officials pass are not good for the people, they are good for the special interest.

Go ahead, pick up the phone, call your Congressman or Senator. See if you actually get them on the phone. Then call back and say you have a $15k contribution to their super pac and watch that son of bitch be on your doorstep.

. We all know Romney has recycles a good number of influential folks from the Cheney's administration as advisors. In other words, a Romney administration will allow Wall Street to rape the Middle-Class, AGAIN

. The right-wing message to white Americans is this: "Even though Romney is going to screw you, it's not gonna be that bad, a black man's sexual tool can cause more internal damage do you."

. It's a fear-mongering message. GOP crooks try all sort off smearing tactics to scare Whites away from the Negro president

. After four years in power, we do know where Obama stands; Romney would not even release his tax returns. Do we trust Romney over Obama just because Romney is White? Wall Street and Cheney failed us, neither Wall Street nor the Bush administration were Negro led institution.....

Let's compare Cheney's socioeconomic, foreign policy outcome after 8 years versus Obama's first 4 years......

. Obama's policies have led to far superior results!

. Latest GDP up 2%
. Auto Industry roaring back
. Housing up 14%
. Stock Market up 100%
. Victorious homecoming of our soldiers from Cheney's war-for-oil...
. Creation of Millions of private sector jobs
. Americans will no longer go bankrupt because of unpaid devastating Medical bills

What will GOP crooks do to help the 47% of struggling Americans???

It now appears help could have been sent to assist Americans under attack in Libya on 9/11. According to White House e-mails it appears b. h. obama could have summoned help but apparently had to think about it all for awhile thus allowing Chris Stevens to be raped and murdered along with 3 other brave men who gave all.
Yes indeed Libya is one big bowl of obama selfishness and incompetence and every voter needs to know about it. Most people were probably dumbfounded over the surprise video reversal during debate 2 and sensed there was a rat in the woodpile.
If you've paid any attention to the demeanor of the b. h. obama then you'll agree that bozo takes his own sweet time about doing anything. I mean it took the self-proclaimed CINC 3 months to approve a troop surge for Afghanistan while everyone pulling the wagon was jumping up and down wondering what the holdup was. During that 3 months Americans stood in harm's way but that did not matter to the self serving lord marshal b. h. obama.
This Libya 9/11 tragedy seems to have wound up on a similar path. A path where a swift certain response probably could have saved American lives but all America received was self-serving incompetence and a cover up.

Yepper the forum's obamaroids were lied to about Libya 9/11 just like the rest of America yet their heads are stuck up their butts. Apparently the obamaroids must have been dung beetles in their past lives because they just cannot keep themselves from wallowing around in b. h. obama's marxist poop...pathetic.
Even funnyman dave letterman said b. h. obama lied about Mitt Romney over the GM bailout...And even the jokester jon stewart had raised eyebrows during his talk with b. h. obama about Libya 9/11.
The obamaroids know Libya 9/11 is a cover-up but their nature is that of useful idiots...not men.

China started buying the debt while Clinton was in office, Bush didn't borrow money from China. Another hilarious false claim by the left. Did you guys ever find that 98,000 acre ranch in Paraguay where Bush would rule the new world order?????? The Paraguay army can't seem to locate it!! LMAO
