You obviously don't know about the tipping point.

Obama sucks.
According to a UPI and various other media reports on Tuesday, John Moody, 64, a former school bus driver, was not charged for not having tried to stop a physical fight on his school bus in Florida's Pinellas County. Beyond the controversy about how much physical interaction a bus driver should engage in to break up a fight, there is equal controversy as to why the race of the boys has been ignored by the vast majority of the media accounts concerning this horrendous story.
Three black 15-year-old boys severely assaulted a 13-year-old white boy – allegedly because the white boy had told school authorities that one of the black boys tried to sell him drugs.

Trayvon Martin's parents could have been the 13 year old white boys parents too since both boys suffered an unnecessary , wrongful death that they did not deserve.

You can also reset your internet modem box and it will DNS or resolve a new ip number... However that is not necessary.

That's all that is required and wait depending on you network connection and topix server to record the vote and for the judging to take... I have done it and it can take up to 5 minutes on mine, maybe others different...

Yes. But his walk and the other survivors who were picked up along with him after the Japanese destroyed the air bases where he was stationed weren't as long as the men who began at Corregidor after the infamous surrender.

He was very fortunate in that way. His three years as a POW not so much. He weighed under 100 pounds when the Americans liberated the POWs.

Thanks for asking.

Was hoping for another reason. But since there doesn't seem to be one, we're really in a heap of trouble.

Unless things have to get so bad, more people start getting it.

It's not that I despise Obama the man if he weren't in a position of power. He would have been a great entertainer, what with his charm and charisma and all. He just missed his calling. Leadership isn't it.

When Peter Welby decided to attend university in Egypt, some of his friends were worried that the move would spell doom for his relationship with Jen Bates, his girlfriend.

Happily, however, absence has made his heart grow even fonder and the son of Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, has proposed to Bates.

“Peter got engaged to a lovely girl two days ago,” says the Archbishop.“That’s been a gradual thing.”

Since Peter moved to Alexandria to study Arabic two years ago, the country has been hit by civil unrest.

The military coup earlier this month that overthrew the democratically elected government of Mohammed Morsi, the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, has heightened religious tensions.

<quoted text> You definitely need a refresher course on Barack Obama's remarkable accomplishments in such little time at building bridges to the political opposition , like Big Republican powerhouse leaders like John McCain, Richard Lugar , Tom Osborne, John Warner,...'I went to the Congressional Record ( www.thomas.gov ) and did a search for bills sponsored or co-sponsored by Senator Obama in his three short years in the US Senate. I searched the 109th and 110th Congresses which cover the years 2005-2007.
In a nut shell I found:
Senator Obama has sponsored or co-sponsored 570 bills in the 109th and 110th Congress.
Senator Obama has sponsored or co-sponsored 15 bills that have become LAW since he joined the Senate in 2005.
Senator Obama has also introduced amendments to 50 bills, of which 16 were adopted by the Senate.
His record is in fact quite impressive for a junior Senator from Illinois.'
http://www.dailykos.com/story/2008/02/21/4614...
The Boston Globe painted a different picture.

As a state senator, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee coauthored an Illinois law creating a new pool of tax credits for developers. As a US senator, he pressed for increased federal subsidies. But a Globe review found that thousands of apartments across Chicago that had been built with local, state, and federal subsidies - including several hundred in Obama's former district - deteriorated so completely that they were no longer habitable.

Grove Parc and several other prominent failures were developed and managed by Obama's close friends and political supporters. Those people profited from the subsidies even as many of Obama's constituents suffered. Tenants lost their homes; surrounding neighborhoods were blighted.

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

According to the article, "Some people in Chicago's poorest neighborhoods are torn between a natural inclination to support Obama and a concern about his relationships with the developers they hold responsible for Chicago's affordable housing failures. Some housing advocates worry that Obama has not learned from those failures."

Willie J.R. Fleming, a former public housing resident said, "I'm not against Barack Obama. What I am against is some of the people around him."

But didn't Obama tell us we would know him by who surrounded him?

Washington Post correspondent Dan Balz, whose new book Collision 2012 provides in-depth reporting and analysis of the last presidential election, says the Romney campaign’s failure to humanize Mitt Romney was an important factor in sealing the candidate’s loss.

Balz tells “The Fine Print” that the more he reported on the campaign, the more “baffled” he became by the Romney team’s “inability to humanize Mitt Romney throughout the entire campaign.”

Balz recalls that it wasn’t until the last night of the Republican National Convention that the campaign revealed the more human side of Romney, when members of his church told a story about Romney helping their son, who had died of cancer.

“Mitt Romney became his friend, helped him write a will,” Balz recalls.“This was as poignant and human a testimony as we ever saw.”

But even after that testimonial, Balz says,“the campaign never did anything with it. They never put it in an ad. They didn't take opportunities.”

Additionally, Balz says the Obama campaign ran a “technically superior” organization and that he was surprised by “the degree to which the Obama operation superseded what they knew that had done in 2008.”

Another “stunning” discovery, Balz says, was “the degree of ambivalence of Mitt Romney” about running for president—an attitude he says Romney had even after forming an exploratory committee.

“I was told in the last summer that there'd been a family vote in late 2010,” Balz says.“There were twelve votes, 10 votes saying he shouldn't run, 2 saying he should. He was one of the 10 who said no.”

Following Romney’s ultimate loss, the former candidate agreed to an interview with Balz. He says it was clear during the interview that Romney was still grappling with the loss and trying “to understand why it had not worked better than it had.”

“There were elements of the campaign that he was still having trouble with,” Balz says.“I think there is also a feeling among a lot of Republicans that he could or should have run a better campaign … and he has to digest that as well.”

For more of the interview with Balz, including what he says the 2012 election shows about campaigns going forward, check out this episode of “The Fine Print.”
