Are you for real?? Obama and the Liberal ahole Dumbocraps are the ones trying to block the military vote! Why does 95% of the military vote Republican? You really need to do some REAL research (not MSNBC or Huffington Post) before making such ridiculous, far-fetched claims. Open your eyes and learn something. You really come across an uninformed and uneducated (which is the typical Hussein voter, unfortunately). Also, Obama didn't kill his friend, Osama. The SEALS did it, after a long, drawn-out opposition from Obama and his Dem loser colleagues. They didn't want to allow it (just as Pres. clinton didn't either). Obama was finally convinced, and thanks to the SEALS, it happened. Obama cannot take one ounce of credit. ANY sane President would have ordered the kill (and the intelligence gathering was mostly done during Bush's term). We found Osama through "torture" techniques. Shouldn't that bother you and your liberal idiot cohorts,,, or is it okay to give Obama credit anyway? Two-faced liberal hypocritical dumbas$es!

Take a look in your mirror. You are the Idiot! President Obama, nor you, nor anyone else can protect us from terrorists. Even members of the KKK support Republicans! Muslims aren't the only terrorists in this country. We have a whole slew of American terrorists right here in the U.S.A. To name a few, there's the KKK, neo-nazis, the Aryn Brotherhood, white supremacists, and the anti-muslim idiots whose inflammatory statements, videos and cartoons have caused riots and attacks overseas that resulted in the deaths of our own American diplomat and former seals. Not to mention the deaths of other innocent people. Our own home-grown terrorists and hate mongers would like to see our President lose this election simply because he is black, What about you? In my opinion, you are a bigot and a U.S. President-bashing excuse for an "American". Shame on you!

But Obama is going before the UN to condemn the Mohammad film maker and HE doesn't take responsibility for the deaths of our ambassador and 3 other Americans even though it happened on 9/11 anniversary and there was no beefed up security in an UNstable arab nation...oh, that's right it's Bush's fault. That's the refrain from a pathetic president who assumes no blame for anything.
We can't afford another 4 years of this sociopath.
What a self centered, ego driven person. He views himself as godlike, as he can do no wrong. It's everybody else's fault.
and when cornered, he lies. Latest example: claiming he didn't know what the total debt of the USA was while on the Letterman show.

Obama let that ambassador and three other guys die a horrible death because they were WHITE. He wants reparations for his grandfather's beating and torture by the British. He sure got it. In spades.

I feel very sad at what American Veterans must be feeling at the moment, about the smoke and mirrors that have been used to bypass help for them at home. It seems that loyalty and duty is always expected of them, and that it is not being returned. American Veterans should be treated as heros, not as welfare abusers.

What else is in the bill? I bet the Democrats loaded it up with new freebies for his social thieves to buy votes. Republicans are not going to vote for a bad bill just because the Democrats doctored it up with something for the veterams. They will give us a bill for the vets when they are sworn in in January. And the veterans already know that, 74% of our vets will not vote for the worst Commander in chief we have ever elected.

"5) They held our payroll tax cuts hostage for a pipeline."

And liberals wonder why others question their values.

"our" being the operative word. Like they were entitled to the cuts, a right even.

Rob Peter (social security) to pay Paul (themselves).

"I got mine and I want yours too" mentality.

Our President had nothing to do with what happened. The problem lies with the person who created this video knowing, full well, what might take place. The video was meant to be inflammatory, and it did just what it was intended to do. The result was an attack on the Embassy. The ambassador and the former Navy Seals were ambushed!

Now let's get back to the original story ... the fact that Republicans refused to pass the Veterans jobs bill. Over 40,000 soldiers came back to the U.S. with physical, mental and emotional problems. They not only need medical treatment, they are going to need jobs to support themselves and their families. They have put their lives on the line, and their lives will never be the same. Now we must support them. It is the morally correct thing to do. The Republicans in Congress decided four years ago that they would do everything they could to discredit President Obama, by not passing bills that would help this county and it's people get back on their feet. These congressmen and congresswomen had no concern for the American people, they used the "economy" as a weapon against Obama. No matter the cost to the American people, their sole mission was to see that Barack Obama did not get elected in 2012. And even now, rather than help Veterans to find jobs and get their lives back, the Republican Congress voted "NO". Rather than pass the "Jobs Bill" for all Americans, they voted "NO". Shame on them. This has been the least effective Congress in decades. They should all be voted out of their "cushy" positions, and their fat salaries and "cushy" benefits that we, the taxpayers have been paying for.

The KKK were all democrats. You left out the violent Blank Panthers, Malvo and Muhammed (DC snipers), islamic radical jihadists (who want nobama to win). We want this Presdident to lose because he's clueless, failed at taxpayer funded jobs and green energy projects he's attempted, rammed nobamacaretax down our throats, middle east in flames and Europe is not too fond of him either.

Throw your race card in the trash, it's useless.

Most job applications have a section devoted to military service. Veterans receive preferential treatment when applying for law enforcement and other public safety jobs. Those who have taken advantage of the GI Bill and obtained college degrees have the edge when applying for teaching jobs in the public sector and for employment in the private sector in fields related to their degrees. Pennsylvania provides employment counselors, who are themselves veterans, to provide advice and options for them when they return. As another poster pointed out, the special veterans job bill would be a duplication of services offered by the States and private entities. The local universities have separate advisors for veterans and I am sure other colleges and universities do as well. This is just another spending bill to buy votes in November. Obama needs to bump up his wick and do something sensible in regard to the situation in the Middle East instead of attributing the insanity to an amateurish spot on You-Tube. Of course, he has a lot of financial backers from the region so it is beneficial for him to sacrifice our soldiers and diplomats than it would be to take some initiative there. Read the Washington Examiner's summary of the new Obama biography. I had no idea that Tony Retzko was a middle Easterner. Follow the money...

Lower taxes, expand busiinesses large and small and the vets will get hired.

Bush tried 17 times to get fannie/freddie under control before the bottom fell out, only to be blocked by Dodd/Frank. After it crashed, "duh, it's Bush fault!"

The left has been throwing our wallets around for useless entitlements long enough.

You got a warning in 2010, you got another when Walker won the recall, you should've listened.

1. The klan and nazis are both left wing organizations. The klan was actually formed as the militant portion of the dimocrat party. Nazi is short for National Socialist Party.
2. It has been admitted that the video in question had nothing to do with the preplanned attacks on our embassies, no matter what our liar in chief keeps claiming.
3. Your obsession with race speaks more about your mindset than those at whom you direct your bile.
4. Speaking for myself, the president's race has no bearing on my displeasure and disgust with the present administrations lies, murder and illegal actions. These reasons are more than enough to wish our dear leader is defeated in November.
5. Replace your race card, it's looking frayed and ineffective.

The president had three days notice and took no action. Once again, these attacks were planned for 9/11. The video was not used as an excuse by anyone but the current administration. An overt act of desperation in an attempt to hide failure.
