I think we will agree that it's great to have both Messi AND Ronaldo out there.
Certainly.

IMHO, the two bring different skills to the table. Both enormously gifted and both tactical nukes on the pitch.

I would rate Messi as probably the best purely offensive weapon. However, I would give Ronaldo all round higher marks. Messi has been exposed in the past - his size makes him a weak defender. Not the case with Cristiano Ronaldo; the lad is big and strong and will not be pushed around.

But to be honest, I have not seen performers like them ever before. They are better than anything the past 20 years have produced; better than Zidane, Beckham, Ronaldinho, Pirlo, Costa, Figo, Raul, Morientes, Nedved, Giggs, Forlan, Veron, Henry, van Nistelrooy, Kaka.

I have die hard friends - United supporters since the Busby area, that claims that Ronaldo is better than even the great George Best

Funny how the tea baggers can't ever attack what I say, they have to invent something I did not say and attack that.

If you want to compare apples to apples, darling, then compare the records of Christians to Muslims and Muslims to Jews, and Jews to Christians.

You don't get to pick and choose pieces of the records.

I go back to the Pele days--he was my hero. Messi and Ronaldo are superior, not just to him but to anybody else who has ever played the sport. BTW, I'd add Platini, van Basten and Cruyff to any list of the best of the best.

Draft dodger Romney has called for a preemptive war with Iran.
You can't seriously compare Romney's position with Obama's?
No, he hasn't.

Draft dodger Romney.

No one in Romney's immediate family has ever served. Not his dad, not his grandad, not any of his five kids, and certainly not Romney- though he demonstrated for the war before he ran away to France.

CNN pole - who won debate: Romney 65; Obama 22.

Your claim that it didn't change one vote was disproven by televised focus groups where multiple voters said it changed their votes.

A. Is it that you know better how those people are voting than they themselves do?

B. Or is it that you are just a dumb liar?

Choose one. Then we can laugh at you.

Where is the call for pre-emptive war?

...didn't think so. You lied.

The quote is the same position taken by Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

Do you tire of me making a fool of you?

You have a problem with the facts, Fatty?

When we identify Romney as the draft dodger that he is, yes, I think it is interesting to note that no one in his family as served this country.

It would enter in the decision when making statements endorsing going to war when one has no family experience, yes: as it may have entered Bush's thought process when he sent thousands of Americans to their deaths when trying to get a leg up in the 2004 election, knowing his daughters were not going to be in harm's way.
