If any anyone is like nixon it would be romney. romney would be completely out of his element as president. He would have no idea what he can or cannot do.Obama would not be impeached he has broken no laws. He did call it an act of terror the very next day I know you selectively tune that out. But he did call it an act of terror.And he did proved information as soon as it was safe to do so. You have to remember this is an on going investigation and we have people on the ground that can be endangered if the wrong thing is released. Unlike Cheney, This Administration cares about our people in the field and is not outing CIA operative for political gain. We are not that dependent on the Middle east for oil(about 20%) and under Obama we are even less so since we have increased domestic drilling to the highest levels in 30 years.
Not because of Obama. He retracked all leases for drilling on federal land, denied the keystone pipeline and took away permits for offshore drilling.

He publicly stated that Coal companies could be built but his regulations would cause them to go bankrupt.

Benghazi is bad, bad, bad. On 9/12, in the Rose Garden, he was refering to 9/11/01 when he used the words 'terrorists attacks.' On 9/25/12 he went to the UN and in his speech, blamed it on the video seven times. At 6:43 AM on the day of the attack a report came to the WH that a Libyan was taking photos of the consulate and they suspected danger. They should have removed all Americans from Libya then. 13 hours before the attack.

The military was chomping on the bit to respond and were not allowed to.

On 9/28, 17 days after the attack, on a Friday afternoon, Obama ordered a transfer of $450. million cash to Egypt and the government of Mohammed Morsi, of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Kay Granger, a representative from Texas noted the order, advised the chairwoman of the Subcommittee on foreign affairs, who advised the State Dept., who advised Congress who blocked the transfer.

This, to my knowledge was not reported on any TV or radio station. You might find the article at

www.theblaze.com/stories/us-house-blocks-obam...

I know there were other's involved. But he knew from jump street and did nothing and then LIED.

He will be impeached. The story and investigation will not go away. The cover up is illegal. False information. He's young, inexperienced and arrogant. The people aren't buying it anymore.

Romney will be fine. He's a workaholic, rearing to go, smartest guy in the room and very ethical. We'll be OK and it will get better.

And Obama will appointed head of some international organization in a few years and be much happier.

Actually, Nixon had Kissenger and a good cabinet. His one huge screw up was being involved, having knowledge of, a break in at the democratic office at the Watergate Condos. It would have been o.k. if he didn't lie.

The permit you are speaking of were not being used for anything so he recalled them. So companies could not just sit on them so other would not be able to drill in those area. The keystone pipeline is a joke and would hurt us in the long run you really need to look at that more closely. He clearly stated that coal power plants that refuse to met clean air standard by upgrading their equipment would go bankrupt. He was referring to the current attack in the rose garden. And handle it very well Romney would just sent in troop and started another war with the wrong people. There is no cover up and there has been no false information. Information was give as it was received and confirmed and safe to be given for the people on the ground. And just were was all this demanding for disclosure from your side during the original 9/11 attack that killed thousands of American on our own soil. Romney is a lazy and never worked a day in his life. He would make a bigger mess than Bush jr. Romney is the dumbest person in the room and he has just been riding on his daddy's record and reputation for so long and never really done anything himself that was a success. He just take credit for others have done. He says let GM go bankrupt and takes credit for the bailout is a good example. The man has been wrong on every single thing he has said and you want to vote him and let him run the country off a cliff. Obama is very experienced and they have no grounds for impeachment. And since when is withholding classified security information a crime. The investigation will go away when those pushing for it are voted out of office this time and Obama is re elected back to office.

You talk about permits look at how coal permits has been held back. Now some has passed but EPA has the power plants locked down and will not buy coal. Thanks to the current white house crew. We can not depend on other countries to take care of our energy needs. We need to mine our coal and use it in power plants, make fuel with it. We talk about china growing look at what they use for power now. Building more and more coal power plants. We worry about not having social security later in life. We will loose it anyway on the road we are on now. I thought we was getting change this past election we did alright from bad to down the tube. Im ready for change again no matter if its good or bad. We have a small business and it has went to the dogs over the last 4 years because we have no jobs here. If you really look at all the people laid off that not getting unemployment our unemployment would be 10 to 14 percent. What about all you Virgins that are in the military cuts are coming if you do not get a new president. We really need all our military. Vote Romney 2012.

I live in Wise Co. and it is the main source of employment in this area. So many miners have been laid off in this area in the last few months that it is unreal. People are having it so hard trying to take care of their families and they no way to do it. Another reason is that we need coal for electricity. This is ridiculous, I don't understand what the big shots think. When they don't have lights or heat then they will see and appreciate what the miners have been doing all these years. I have many family members and friends who have worked in the mines for years. They are hard workers and struggled to make a living for their families often suffering from bad lungs and of course danger of getting killed and maimed every time they go back underground. I am proud of them and the job they do and have done. But they kept doing it because they have to make a living. They are proud and strong people. I pray that all who have lost their jobs get back to work as soon as they can and be safe. God bless all of you and your families. May you all be working soon!

Your right about the coal people. The big shots such as Movie Stars , Music Stars and the every day want work lay around and complain people thinks that you flip that little button on the wall and presto you have electricity. I use to work in the coal mines and was great paying job for me. I feel for all the poor families out of work now and there children. We have several coal companies here local that will shut down by first of year if obama and epa stays in office.

You might want to use your brain and ask yourself this - WHY has Romney NOT made an issue of this AFTER he received his secuity briefing on what REALLY went on?

Or do you HAVE a brain OR do you simply rely on Faux News and conspiracy sites for your "news"?

Sorry but none of those are lies.

I can take exception to the five trillion dollar tax cut. Obama kept saying that Romney had said that, when in fact, Romeny never had.

35 green energy companies that stimulus money went to have failed. Some were owned by foreigners. While Solandra was failing, Obama bought solar panels from China for a Federal building in Carbndale IL for $1.8 million stimulus, which is illegal. When the installer questioned whether it was legal or not, he was told to install them or they'd get another contractor.

Jeep, now owned by an Italian company, has said, the plants here will remain open 'for now', but all future expansions will be in Italy or China. Mark my words, no one in the USA will be building any Chrysler products in 24 months.

Romeny promised a 20% middle class tax cut.

It is extremely easy to understand.

3 employees paying $10.00 tax per week =$30.00
5 employees paying $ 8.00 tax per week =$40.00

And we would have seen gigantic job growth under Romney and cheaper gas and energy costs. North America would have been energy independent!

Kiss that goodbye.

Now we're stuck with Obamacare, which will cut jobs and quality medical care.

Regulations which are going to put all coal miners out of work, close the mines and raise our energy costs, and I prayed on that last night.

And Israel is now a sitting duck and it and our military bases and allies in the area are in more danger.

You are going to see a fast, steeper dive downhill very quickly under Obama.

Unless you work for the government.

The only lies in your posts are Obama's and he'll continue to lie. God help this country and God bless the coal mining families.

Roe v Wade should be overturned and the law given back to the states to decide.

No person with an ounce of morals can support abortion on demand or these heinous partial birth abortions.

I'm pro-choice, but make the choice BEFORE you get pregnant and then become a murderer and involve someone else in it.

I'm a woman. Take responsibility for yourself.

With all the birth control available, abortions should not even be a discussion. When Ms. Roe became pregnant, birth control was barely available.

The problem with your reasoning is that Romney supports the Blunt Amendment also. Which would allow employers to tell the insurance companies not to cover birth control.

Roe v Wade should not be overturned. You have a right to your opinion, but your opinion should not be the opinion for someone else. If it is sent back to the states to decide, don't think for a second that conservative legislature in states would get rid of it. Like the effort in Virginia, Mississippi, etc. this year. They want to get rid of the choice.

If you think that I am lying, look them up. I don't have a need to lie. We will see just how Obamacare goes. It could do exactly what it's supposed to do and you will be proven wrong. Romney's policies would have little effect on the economy. The 12 million jobs that he claims is the same that is predicted no matter who is President. The only thing that less regulation would have created is artifical growth, and we seen how that turned out with the housing market.

I'm smarter than you and more informed.

Why didn't Romney make an issue of it? He knows how to keep classified information classified. Maybe the same reason Bush didn't kill Bin Laden. It brought more wrath down on us then it was worth.

Obama and Biden crowed about and NAMED the unit that took out Bin Laden. Two months later that team's helicopter was taken down, killing 20 members of Seal team 6, 10 other military members and a service dog.

Obama and his team murdered four Americans in Benghazi as much as if they had the mortars in their hands. To hell with him and all of them who are covering for him.

You know what the 9/11/12 protestors were chanting in Eqypt and 20 other countries as they burned our flag? "Obama. We are Bin Laden."

Twist it anyway you want, he's been a failure, weakened our credit rating, made us appear foolish to the world, seeped us in debt and desimated our middle class while hanging out with George Clooney and Beyonce.

Guess Michelle we off on another vacation soon. Valerie Jarrett with keep her 24 hour secret service coverage and our troops in the mideast will continue to be in dangers way with no chance of this administration protecting them.
