Where would you be without "big bird"??

A "big bird" is a reason to cheer Bozo? Sort of like his "big stick", according to Plugs.

Sorry, troll. You haven't a clue.

All the underlying numbers say there hasn't been an improvement. There are very serious questions how anyone could have arrived at this number.

And since when is 7.8% something to cheer about, even if true? Foreclosures are still up, along with bankruptcies.

When you grow up and TRY to find a job, you'll understand.

Another reason to cheer for President Obama!!!

Right Power!!!

Those of us who lived under the barely distinguishable leadership of Willard Romney in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts (God save it!) know very well that the emotional membrane separating Lofty Willard from Snippy Willard is thin indeed, and that the membrane separating Snippy Willard from Dickhead Willard is well-nigh translucent. Both of those membranes were tested fully here on Tuesday night by the president, by Candy Crowley who has clearly had enough of your bullshit, thank you very much and by the simple fact that certain members of The Help tested the challenger's ideas and found them wanting and, my dear young man, that simply is not done. And both of those membranes failed like rotting levees in a storm.

Before I arrived to Hofstra on Tuesday, I thought that, given the roll he's been on, Romney would be able to keep both Snippy Willard and Dickhead Willard in check. I had no doubt that, because the nature of the event required that he mingle with actual carbon-based life forms, we undoubtedly would see English-as-a-Second-Language Willard. And we did.("Binders full of women"?) And, because at least some of the questions were likely to be wild cards, there was a better than even chance that Zany Improv Willard would put in an appearance, as he did on the very first question of the night, when he told a young man named Jeremy that, "I want to make sure we keep our Pell Grant program going," when, in fact, one of the under-appreciated consequences of the overall zombie-eyed granny-starving onto which he signed when he picked his running mate is the fact that his running mate's "budget" would utterly devastate... wait for it... Pell Grants!

(I have to admit it: When the president let that fat, hanging curveball go by, I thought he was in for another long evening.)

But not even I expected Romney to let his entitled, Lord-of-the-Manor freak flag fly as proudly as he did on Tuesday night. He got in the president's face. He got in Crowley's face. That moment when he was hectoring the president about the president's pension made him look like someone to whom the valet has brought the wrong Mercedes.

Cheer!!!

Envisioning a pre-election hostage crisis, la Iran and Jimmy Carter,[Romney said], "If something of that nature presents itself, I will work to find a way to take advantage of the opportunity.

Romney's shocking statement came after a fat cat in the audience specifically brought up how Ronald Reagan used the Iranian hostage crisis to his campaign's advantage.

It is important to remember that the 47 percent and other fundraiser remarks were before the tragic killings of the US Ambassador to Libya and other foreign service representatives.

Sure enough, once the murders occurred, Romney rashly held a press conference that incorrectly conflated the deaths with a prior US Cairo Embassy news release and cast blame on Obama. However, the Romney campaign backed off for awhile due to a general condemnation by the DC punditry, many leading Republicans, and the corporate media of his reckless remarks.

But then Romney, who has no foreign policy or military experience (he was a Mormon missionary in France for two years though and received a deferment), returned to accusing the White House of not providing enough security for the diplomats who were killed. This attack line started to have some resonance when State Department "traffic" indicated that one or more verbal requests had been made for increased protection in Tripoli, the capital of Libya.(Who said what to whom and when is still being sorted out.)

Fast forward to the debate on Tuesday night. Based on a question from an audience member named Kerry Ladka, President Obama took full responsibility for handling the Benghazi situation and responded in a dignified fashion that honored the loss of life in the line of duty.

Then three words set in motion the defining moment of the debate when Crowley offered Obama a brief chance to respond to Romney saying that the president began his term with "an apology tour" through the Middle East.

Obama returned to the bloodshed in Benghazi. In his brief remark, he included these words: "The day after the attack, Governor, I stood in the Rose Garden, and I told the American people and the world that we are going to find out exactly what happened, that this was an act of terror."

Those of us who lived under the barely distinguishable leadership of Willard Romney in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts bla bla bla (most of Zero's shameless plagiarization of Charles Pierce's petulant little rant in Esquire here: http://www.esquire.com/blogs/politics/last-ni... snipped)... Romney ... was hectoring the president about the president's pension ...
Yeah - that's right.

And it turns out Romney is exactly right about Obama's hypocritical lying about his pension and Romney's -

Romney said Barack Obama has pension investments that include Chinese firms, and "investments through a Caymans trust."

Guess what? TRUE - HE DOES. http://www.politifact.com/wisconsin/statement...

And Obama's clever little quip about his pension not being as large as Romney's, that had all the sycophantic journos who are in the bag for Obama applauding and wetting themselves in the next room? Guess what -

OBAMA'S (TAXPAYER-FUNDED) PENSION IS BIGGER THAN ROMNEY'S:

Obama's statement here has since been shown to be an utterly cynical and intentional lie.

"In tonight's presidential debate President Obama maintains that he called the attack on the US Consulate in Benghazi a "act of terror", which turns out to be accurate. However, the President is using a play on words. The full transcript below supports that assertion, which the moderator, Candy Crowley vehemently confirmed the President did do. However, the legal term of "act of terrorism" is never used. Furthermore, the President clearly implies the attack was a result of the reaction to an anti-Muslim film released on YouTube in the transcript the Whitehouse released ...

"Under the video is a press release later distributed by the Whitehouse that includes the word "terror" used in the generic sense, not referring to "terrorism" or "terrorist act". The choice of words is not a trivial matter in White House parlance, and the word "terrorist act" has an historic and specific meaning. Nor did any of the official Whitehouse statements in the following two weeks refer to "terrorist act." Nor did President Obama tonight refer to the attack as a "terrorist act." We maintain that there was a meaningful distinction in the use of the word that could have easily been dispelled and/or clarified tonight...it was not."

Obama lied - Americans died. He is a dishonorable liar.

Obama wants the destroy the middle class. Let's talk about the QE3...eh? After the election Obama will throw Welfare Moms like you under the bus, because he won't need your vote anymore. Same with illegals. That's what you'll get for being so stupid.

"Logic", women don't play a big role in your life. Neither does YOUR money (some small bills in your back pocket).

So that would leave you commenting about other people's money and other people's women.

Stick to what you know about.

If Romney did not raise a hand to save the 170 jobs from Sensata/Bain that are being shipped to China,how can you trust him.

And those 170 peolple begged for his help to keep their jobs and he ignored them.

Why didn't Obama lift a hand to save ANY of the American jobs shipped to China in the last 4 years?? When he wasn't bowing and apologizing, that is.
