What d'ya 'spose the chances are we find posts where you've used words and phrases that we might find also in the current popular discourse? What are the chances that every other post on this page contain words that one can also find on a blog?
An attempt at a zinger, or......uh, what's your point? Did you see those other words carefully arranged around "their words" in common grammatical constructs known as "sentences"? They ain't there fer window-dressing, yaknow?
No doubt like yourself, I read mornings and evenings, and interact with a diversity of people throughout each day. Don't worry, this is farm country - the conservative view is well represented. I get the fresh skinny about communism every day with my morning coffee.

Putting the election aside for minute Roberta and putting aside my wanting Romney to do well, that was still MY president up there for 90 minutes unable to defend himself, unable to explain himself and had a 4 year record that was so pathetic he hung his head because there was nothing else he could do. With the right questions and fact after fact after fact, my mother could have reduced to him to a puddle of mush.
Regardless of party affiliation I don't ever want to see my president look like that again. We hired him to do a job, he was taken to the cleaners and as nice as that is for Romney, that was MY country they were talking about.
Had I been an Obama supporter and additionally had an emotional investment in him and he gave that kind of dismal performance because it was all he had, I would have been enraged. So in my opinion, he didn't just let down the democratic party 2 nights ago. He let down the entire nation.
It was incredibly sad but Idon't think we need to expect perfection. We had a president throw-up at a state dinner and this wasn't that much worse than that.

When you want to be President, everything about you outside the marital bedroom is our business. You want to crown a king, buy an island. The rest of us are hiring a Chief Executive.
Heh heh heh..... Now where did you learn those curiously defined rules about about how a president should be vetted?

If ya don't like Romney's success, or what he does with the proceeds thereof, yer free to vote for Obama. But yer constant bellyaching about HIS money doesn't prove anything,'crept that yer petty and jealous, just like Obama....

I edited most of your post because like most of your commentary it had nothing of merit in it.
But here you go Karl. Take another look at this beauty which was your response to my telling you what Romney does with his money as long as it's legal is none of your business.
<quoted text>
1) There is NO exception.
2) It doesn't matter that "America has NEVER had a Presidential Candidate that made his billions and billions of dollars in America, claims to "Love America" but banks in the Cayman Islands, Bermuda and other secretive tax shelters. Un-American and Un-fit to Govern over this great country."
You show me the law which says he can't. You show me where it's written that his personal investment decisions are up for public scrutiny. It doesn't matter KARL that no candidate has EVER done it before.... it's being done now, his name is on every ballot in every state, he's running for POTUS, so I suggest you acquire some coping skills and get a grip.
Erm. Show me law which says he CAN squirrel assets away. Does this mean we need one which does, or should we continue to rely on the lack of precedent?

I respect your feelings, Lyndi, and up to a point I even agree. I remember how ashamed I felt when Nixon resigned in disgrace, and that was 38 years ago :s

I would much rather have had in office right now a POTUS whom I respected. But there isn't. Obama has been letting down the entire nation for 3 1/2 years now. The difference now, two days after the debate, is that now a lot more people see, as you, I and others have said, the current Emperor is naked.

I don't ever want to see our president humiliated like this again, either, but in order for that to happen, we must first get rid of this one. Hopefully after this sorry critter goes, we'll have presidents who earn our respect.

mitt romney never made billions. he's a mormon, and made his money the way all mormons do, from ther misery of othersw. AThere just ain't 'Billions' in that game. He is worth some two hundred million, I've heard. And none of his chickenshit sons served in the military.

Thanks.
next-
There we go - you keep on askin' for all that stuff, you know, because it has everything to do with, uh.....education policy, I guess? And I'll keep on wondering why a man that wants to dictate national policy hides his own cash offshore to avoid supporting his nation.

And the really COOL thing is, none of THEIR sons will either...even if a miracle happens, and one of them wants to.

Mr. Romney is quite proficient at stimulating MY gag reflex.

Ooops. I said I wasn't going to reiterate my feelings for Mr. Romney.

Guess I'll have to eat those words.

Please excuse me whilst I gag again......I'm experiencing a distinct lack of palatable sauce with which to 'wash this down'.

Yeah. They're too 'special'. Hell, even America's Only royal family served. Jack Kennedy and his 'PT109'. My dad voted for him just because of that.
In the movie 'Lions For Lambs', one of the kids, well, two of the kids going off to Afghanistan purposed that Every young pertson in america serve one year, either in the military, or something similar to the peace corp. That idea had real merit, especially if they utilized the resources right here in our country. Imagine college age kids going to the poorer parts of the country and helping folks get on thgeir feet, or building the levees back up in New Orleans.
On the other hand, that was just a movie, so the idea doesn't count.
