The TRUTH will come out about Benghazi in what can only be called CRIMINAL NEGLIGANCE on the part of the Obama Administration.

Yes, you are correct "President and Fema, looked to be doing a good jobs responding to the hurricane" and it drove Obama's approval rating up over 50%.

The real story of was that FEMA was a disaster; worse, or as bad as, Katrina.

Europe has its own problems; the Romney visit in the UK caused sparks over his comment about Olympic Security and their over-reaction was comical.
He had no problem in Israel and Poland and was well received.
Here you go - not the best of sources as it is a blog, but a New York Times one, based on a BBC survey:
http://rendezvous.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/11/1...

Israel is so reliant on US support, they will welcome any potential President, regardless of what he says or does. 72% of France preferred Obama. As to Romney's rudeness over the Olympics, words fail me.

That is why I consider FOX NEWS a SCHIZM in the information monopoly that the SUPER WEALTHY control. The middle-class should be thankful for this split as it provides an opening to push for maintaining Internet Freedom, which Obama will be trying to censor.

The east coast has some of the oldest infrastructure in the nation. Grow up. Learn to love your country instead of bitching and complaining. Romney suggested that FEMA should be privatized or run through the states - shows you how mindless ideology can lead you down stupid paths.

Were sitting at 16 trillion, up from the 5 trillion under the Bush administration. Odumbo's stimulus, bailouts, payoffs and general partying ways really added up. Holding onto profits in anticipation of tax increases that should have happened? They were attempted but failed to happen because the repubs blocked them. That capital that companies are holding onto will be their operating capital to spool back up if this spend thrift administration would do tax reform. How hard is that to understand? You have never owned and operated a business obviously.
Pennsylvania I see. There was MASSIVE FRAUD in the voting in Philadelphia I see, in favor of Obama. This Scandal needs to be investigated.

FEMA Failed; Again!!! Geraldo??? He is a die-hard dem and he certainly lambasted FEMA during Katrina. Stop hating those people on the East Coast, they need help.

Has the US such a surfeit of allies that it doesn't matter what France, Canada and the UK think? Surely, that is one of the points of why Romney was not a strong candidate: he was seen as suspect by much of the rest of the world?

Care to offer a source for that information? If you do, I'll post one about voting irregularities in your own state. Pointless in either case - generally speaking, regardless of conspiracy theories, the USA is not well-known for deliberate electoral fraud. Imho, the way forward for the Republican party and its supporters is to prepare a proper platform on which to campaign. Half the problem is that because this was the most vitriolic campaign from both sides at all levels, the aftermath is inevitably littered with recriminations and what appears to be whining by bad losers. Now is the time for the party to show true statesmanship, particularly in the House of Representatives as without it, the USA has one hell of a problem looming.

It was Ron Paul who kept beating thr drum for a Federal Reserve Audit. When the Fed was audited, by the General Accounting Office, covering a 2 1/2 year period, the results were shocking.

http://www.silverdoctors.com/gao-audit-reveal...

GAO Audit Reveals Fed Gave $16 TRILLION to TBTF Banks From 2007-2010

Citigroup:$2.5 trillion ($2,500,000,000,000)
Morgan Stanley:$2.04 trillion ($2,040,000,000,000)
Merrill Lynch:$1.949 trillion ($1,949,000,000,000)
Bank of America:$1.344 trillion ($1,344,000,000,000)
Barclays PLC (United Kingdom):$868 billion ($868,000,000,000)
Bear Sterns:$853 billion ($853,000,000,000)
Goldman Sachs:$814 billion ($814,000,000,000)
Royal Bank of Scotland (UK):$541 billion ($541,000,000,000)
JP Morgan Chase:$391 billion ($391,000,000,000)
Deutsche Bank (Germany):$354 billion ($354,000,000,000)
UBS (Switzerland):$287 billion ($287,000,000,000)
Credit Suisse (Switzerland):$262 billion ($262,000,000,000)
Lehman Brothers:$183 billion ($183,000,000,000)
Bank of Scotland (United Kingdom):$181 billion ($181,000,000,000)
BNP Paribas (France):$175 billion ($175,000,000,000)

These are the top recepients

----------
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders said he knew nothing about these secret loans totalling OVER 16 TRILLION Dollars. And the institution that was created by a vote of Congress, the Federal Reserve, was giving TRILLIONS Also to Foreign Banks.

The CORPORATE FASCIST MSM, controled by the International Banksters, will, of course, never cover this story BUT will marginalize Ron Paul for exposing their scam.

Yes, let's work together, but the problem is in Harry Reid's Senate. The US NEVER had a TRILLION Dollar deficit UNTIL Harry Reid became Senate Majority Leader. "TRILLION DOLLAR" Harry has not even produced a budget in years; how then does one even reach a compromise.

Plus, see above post, how does the US survive when TRILLIONS are being sent to Foreign Banks???? I'm not just blaming Obama for this subterfuge, Bush also.

Obama has already signed the Internet Censorship Bill, ACTA, in Secret and tried to bypass Congress by saying it was not a treaty but an executive agreement. It was riots and demonstrations in Europe that led to the bill be canned.

They will be kooks from every state, you could also say residents from all 50 states expressed interest in dissolving their relationship with the US and each and every state would have people saying let them go or it's illegal.

Unless there is large movement, and there might be in more of the Red States, Texas, Miss, Alabama, ArkansasLouisiana and Georgia for instance, with the exception of only Texas, you would immediately have a very poor nation who takes more from our federal government than it gives.

The States that contribute the most to the Federal Gov't? Blue States.
