The monarch of the UK can dissolve the Parliament.

Start there.

Even the President of the United States- who we elect- cannot dissolve the US Congress.

Putting aside that the subjects of the monarch of UK don't even vote for the PM.

The president thinks so too. Look at all the sovereign leaders he's had snuffed.

"President Obama argued for absolute freedom of expression, asserting that he defended this right even for those who criticised him. He described the video as “disgusting” but condemned the violent reactions to it in the Muslim world especially the murder of the US ambassador in Libya. Obama opined that restraints on freedom of expression result in repression, particularly against minorities."
I'll remind him of that when the Mexicans and Arabs outnumber my kind.

It would help if you knew what lies actually are. To date, your definition of "lie" seems to go along the lines of people making wrong statements based on ignorance rather than statements made with the intention of deceiving people.

Why? So you can then claim that you "meant" something else even though not once did you even mention the Lords until it became obvious to you that we do indeed vote in MPs to the Commons?

I think the phrase "teach a pig to sing" is more than adequate to sum up your request.

So far on draft dodger's Romney world tour, he was up to two out of three.

HOney, I am not saying that you aren't above everything else ignorant, that is painfully obvious to all.

Still waiting for you to post that quote- you know, when you insisted I said something I did not say.

And when what you CHANGED what I did say to try to suit better your paraphrase- when you changed where I said "members of Parliament" to *M*embers of Parliament" so you could insist I was refering to MPs... i.e., you would say "MPs of the House of Parliament"

Even though I have a history (of over a year) be specific: Lords, and Lords Spiritual.

I don't need to refer to the internet definitions of "lie" or wrangle with "is-is". I've know what I lie was since I was around four years old.

You are a liar.

MSNBC Host Shocked to Hear Romney Surrogate Call Obama ‘Lazy’ and ‘Detached’, Asks Him if He Wants to ‘Take It Back’
Posted on October 4, 2012 at 4:19pm by Jason Howerton

(source: MSNBC)

Former New Hampshire Gov. and Mitt Romney surrogate John Sununu left MSNBC‘s Andrea Mitchell shocked on Thursday after he told the host that President Barack Obama’s debate performance on Wednesday revealed how “lazy and detached” he is as president.

“What people saw last night, I think, was a president who revealed his incompetence — how lazy and detached he is and how he has absolutely no idea how serious the economy problems of the country are and how he has failed to even begin address them,” Sununu said.

He went on:“And I think even the liberal press reacted with shock at this revelation and I find it fascinating now this morning after they’ve slept, watching them all scrambling around to clean up the mess the president left on the floor last night. Sununu said Romney on the other hand brought “specifics” to the debate not “bumper sticker numbers” like Obama.

Mitchell was visibly taken aback by his comments and quickly offered Sununu the chance to take his remarks “back.”

“Governor, I want to give you a chance to maybe take it back. Did you really mean to call Barack Obama, the President of the United States, lazy?” she asked.

“Yes,” Sununu replied bluntly, adding “He said ‘they are making me do this work.’ He didn’t want to prepare for this debate. He is lazy and disengaged.”

Mitchell admitted that “a lot of people are questioning” whether Obama did well in the debate, but said “I think to call the president lazy and disengaged is another whole question.”

“Alright, Andrea. Whatever,” Sununu said, chuckling to himself.

Not a single minute.

No one in America changed their minds, and even though you have changed your mind eight times since last year, you are still latched on to a loser.

Romney has been in some thirty debates since last year... and he is still in second place with no hopes of getting any closer.

He isn't going to be able to hide from his draft record, he isn't going to hide from his stand on women's rights, and he isn't going to ever be LIKED by 40 percent of America.
