I'm going to vote for Romney because he was born in the United States, is White, is Christian, is White, Never Cheated on his Wife With Vera Baker, is White, is a Great Father and Grandfather, is White, and isn't Black.

Yeah, Mormon and WHITE HORSE is all we need to know.

The prophet Joseph Smith, peace be upon him, was right! His revenge will come through Bishop Rmoney and the end of times for non-Mormons.

Long live Mormon RELIGIOUS FREEDOM!

If you support Bishop Rmoney, put a sign on your front lawn that says, "Preserve RELIGIOUS FREEDOM!"

Like Bishop Rmoney, and by extention, Paul Ryan, we support in vitro fertilization, surrogate mothers, and abortions by contract.

We are like Ann Rmoney who adores her living god.

When we elect Bishop Rmoney president, he will convert all Americans to Mormonism through the US Census and Tax Records. It is our tradition, the way we converted JFK and holocaust victims, through proxy.

However FIRST on our agenda, we will re-institute mandatory Mormon school prayer to Joseph Smith. That way, we can give children a chance to convert voluntarily.

Then we will institute a very effective jobs-training program for young people, mandatory two-years overseas Mormon mission work, preceded of course by intensive language studies memorizing the Book of Mormon in the language of the country where the children will be sent.

Girls of course will be trained, instead, to stay at home and be either mothers or surrogate mothers, girls that are not aborted of course.

All US based jobs will be sent to countries where women work in prisons, to protect them from other women who want to enter and steal there jobs.

Bishop Rmoney will UNITE all Americans through Mormonism. We will worship our new god, Bishop Rmoney.

This we pray in the name of Joseph Smith, through the intercession of Ann Rmoney, the earthly wife of the WHITE HORSE.

Amen.

Obama calls debate prep 'a drag'
By Justin Sink - 10/01/12 11:16 PM ET

President Obama played some hookey from his intense debate preparation early this week in Las Vegas, visiting a campaign field office in nearby Henderson and chatting with volunteers for his re-election effort.

"It's very nice. Although basically they're keeping me indoors all the time. It's a drag. They're making me do my homework," Obama joked with volunteer Andrea Stinger. HOME WORK…….CAMPAIGNING IS ALL YOU’VE DONE FOR 4 YEARS.

POOR BABY CAN’T SNEAK OUT TO THE GOLF COURSE………….

Forced to study…………maybe we can give him a time out in November.

A part-time resident, Romney may be finding his message losing ground in New Hampshire

Romney trails President Barack Obama in polls here, as he does in most other presidential battlegrounds, despite spending considerable time and money to lock up the state's four Electoral College votes. Some New Hampshire voters say they are turned off by his shift to the right on issues like abortion, while others have absorbed the message from Obama campaign ads depicting Romney as a wealthy corporate titan who doesn't understand the concerns of ordinary people.

Bill Clinton demonstrated in 1996.
Crisis management also refers to international crises. The way a president reacts to major foreign crises, such as a war or a terrorist attack, greatly affects his standing with the public and his rankings in the polls. Abraham Lincoln and Franklin Roosevelt, two presidents who always rank in the top five, rank high mainly because of their crisis-management skills. Lincoln reacted forcefully during the Civil War and kept the Union intact. Franklin Roosevelt guided the United States through World War II and turned the country into a superpower.
Lyndon Johnson, on the other hand, couldn't deal with the conflict in Vietnam. This inability lowers his ranking, despite his major domestic accomplishments. More recently, President George W. Bush, who was not doing well in the polls as late as August 2001, turned himself into a great crisis manager after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. His handling of the situation brought new life to his presidency.
Presidential appointments
Presidents are also measured by the people they appoint to public office. This area of evaluation includes appointments to the Supreme Court and the presidential cabinet.
Presidents Harding and Grant destroyed their presidencies with inept, corrupt appointments, and their rankings reflect this. Appointing good, skilled people reflects positively on a president. George C. Marshall and Henry Kissinger, both Secretaries of State, reflected positively on the presidents that appointed them, increasing Truman's and Nixon's standings, respectively. Today, diversity has become an issue. Presidential appointments should reflect the ethnic composition of the country. The more minorities, including women, a president appoints to high-level positions, the higher his ranking. Both Bill Clinton and George W. Bush have done well in this area, with their cabinets containing a fair number of minorities.
Foreign standing
Foreign policy is a recent addition to the criteria for ranking U.S. presidents. Most 19th century presidents can't be ranked on this issue because, during that period, the United States was isolationist and didn't get involved in world affairs. But ever since Theodore Roosevelt and his active participation in international affairs, foreign policy has been a major part of the presidency. Today a president deals with many other nations: How he deals with these nations, as well as how these nations perceive him, contribute to his ranking.
Major foreign policy success can make up for domestic failure. President Nixon ranks low on many lists, but he had major accomplishments in the area of foreign policy. These accomplishments elevate him into the middle of the presidential pack. President George H. Bush was a great foreign policy president: During his term, the Soviet Union collapsed, the Gulf War was won, and major arms control took place. These accomplishments push him into the top 15 of U.S. presidents.
Respect from foreign nations is very important. President Nixon was widely respected by foreign nations. After his resignation, he continued to be treated as a successful president by most of the world, which led to a rise in his rankings.
Character and integrity
The attributes of character and integrity are important when judging presidents. A president who promotes corruption, lies to the public, or is involved in scandals,will be Barack Hussien
Obama!

.......
??? Good crisis management??? bush jr?????

I suppose you think grabbing the bullhorn, literally walking on the dead bodies, climbing on the rubble of the WTC and laughing at all those who died is good crisis management?

How about refusing to allow any investigation into what happened. Only where high political pressure was applied did he agree to allow the 9/11 commission, and then only with the mission statement to not look into what happened.

You are correct that he was doing horribly in the polls and the attack gave him great political power which he used to do even more damage to our nation.

The question is why would you go out of your way to defend such a person?
