I made it to your first point before finding an outright lie, not even just good ole fashion GOP spin.

It's a claim made by a group that didn't exist, on April fools day 2009. Guess we know who was fooled. Is all your research this in depth?

Point number 2? His Social security number is a known admitted data entry error by the SSA, the zip where his SSN was issued starts with a 0 instead of a 9, all other digits are the same. Good conspiracy theory though.

I really don't feel like taking the time to debunk all of your lies and spins, maybe you could actually type something in google instead of just taking your sources word for it.

Who knows, maybe you could form your own opinions, instead of using someone else's?

Wow! That's obviously not staged, both sides have uneducated voters, are you saying I couldn't go out and ask Repubs a bunch of questions, like "did we bomb Egypt" (google it) and get many that wouldn't know the answers? Maybe you should consider a source other than YouTube?

If we're basing our votes on YouTube videos, I'm going to vote for that kid that thinks he's Darth Vader!

Lmao! Sad response, maybe you could go out and get your own, actual, informed opinion, and come back with something serious for the group.

Good scare tactic though, lots of the gullible will believe it.
You're clueless. Eventually (by design) the insurance companies will go out of business. Then it's all under the complete control of Obama.

Obamacare's design includes the formation of local committees that determine who gets what in terms of care. The rationing will begin almost immediately. If rationing (death panels) were not required, there would be no reason for a committee to review peoples' medical records, and thus, no reason for these commitees.

Wake up and smell the coffee. You're like lambs to the slaughter.

Obamacare is not about providing healthcare for all. It's about control over all by controlling access to healthcare.

You're not naive enough to actually believe that Obama and the radical left actually care about you...are you?

"What if Romney wins?"

No need to ask since it will never happen in this Federal Republic. If it were a Democracy, he might have won because Obama might lose the popular vote this time but this close to the election; the Electoral College is not going to change 30 points and there is only one public poll out that counts and it is the real Electoral College not the ones TV stations put up and guess at to keep you watching so they get paid for ads.

270 needed to win 300+ for a landslide and Obama has over 330 now so it is game over. Debates don't matter much and each President who lost the first debate won the election. Reagan, Clinton and others lost that first debate for the second term and they do it to scare the base into voting so they win the popular vote too rather than just the Electoral Vote and Obama took a page from Reagan and pretty much just stood there. Never said a word about the 47% Baine Capital, the lies Romney was putting out on stage or anything. He knew his base needed to get out and vote and not just assume he has won because he wants to win the popular vote too.

Electorates are paid off for votes and this was set way back in 2008 to not deny the first black President a second term. No brainer for those who know politics.

Here is the poll and Romney fans will not like the truth. BTW, I could care less who wins.

Romney would need to gain 33 Electoral votes just to prevent an Obama landslide which is more than one a day through election and look how many he would need to gain a day to win. Game over.

Romney Delivers Moving Tribute to Fallen SEAL Killed in Benghazi Attack

http://nation.foxnews.com/mitt-romney/2012/10 ...

Romney is the underdog. Americans should only vote the underdog to KNOW WHO ISN'T PAYING OFF THE MEDIA TO WIN AN ELECTION.

I used to be afraid to watch Romney in debates because of how the media painted him as shallow and superficial. But watching the debate, ROMNEY IS HEADS AND SHOULDERS ABOVE BARACK. He is the real deal.

Watch this video where he speaks off the cuff about the ex Navy Seal who went out of his way to the safe haven to protect the US consulate staff. It's both heart breaking and reaffirming. When you see the video, you will see God's work and serendipidty.

Barack leads America into wasteland and parched land for his followers.

Here's Barack on navy seals:

Once Obamanocare is in place, and in the control of politocrats, now and in the future it can be any POTUS not Obama, they will deny coverage if you don't obey rules like eat only 2000 calories a day and exercise 3 times a day, and on.

Politicians, unions, teachers, and selected favored groups WILL RECEIVE WAIVERS THOUGH. This is how they will conduct population control and favor certain races to dominate the once great country.

not trying to be cruel, but how does one pay off 16 trillion in debt?

I agree Obama is far more likely to turn it into 17, 18, 19 and 20+ trillion faster than ROmney, but neither seem the type to seriously have a go at getting it to a manageable level.

To put it in perspective, if either one found a TRILLION in savings every single year for a decade, the debt would still hit 20 trillion. It would still go up rapidly. Just not at the waterfall speed it's at now.

If you really want to get depressed, run some numbers on what will happen if interest rates go up. If that doesn't turn your underpants brown, then you're already dead or so stupid that your opinion doesn't warrant consideration.

I use snopes, fact check and many others, I however, always check the "fact checkers". In this case, I used snopes, due to the concise points of the article, which are corroborated by more information than the fact check article, which has been debunked by a myriad of sources.

Politifact and FactCheck.org debunked the story, in a Washington Times article as well.

Occidental has no record of “Barry Soetoro” ever attending, and Obama’s records at the college are sealed, though inquiries into the president’s transcripts have increased.

“The number of inquiries dropped off in 2010 and 2011, but now the number has picked up again, of course, because it’s an election year. It keeps us busy,” Occidental College Communications Director Jim Tranquada told the Los Angeles Times.

“The hard file for the president is under lock and key,” Tranquada added.

According to the Washington Times, most presidents release their undergraduate and graduate records by the time they are elected, but Obama has refused to do so.

Also, if you go to the Fulbright (as this is the purported international scholarship he was on) website, and look for any undergrad scholarships, you will find none.

No other scholarships, other than American specific ones, fit with the scholarship claim.

I'm not sure about the popular vote because out of the 20 major polls, Romney leads in four and one is important with women of 600 registered voters each poll speaking for over a hundred million lol but I do know who wins the election. It is a done deal and game long over like it or not so deal with it now and on Thursday, the weekend before the election when it comes out the Romney has been married to more than one woman at the same time through that Mormon Church that states Jesus and Satan are BROTHERS, the right wing will be so furious, they will stay home Election Day.

Obama has something on Romney and it will come out that week and weekend and that is for sure.
Everything about Obama is out there.

Obama will also win the next two debates and he only lost the first one for same reason all other second term Presidents do. Reagan lost first debate on purpose, Clinton and W and many before them for the reason to spook the base into voting. Simple as that. If you understand politics you know it and if not, you will after the next two debates. The Gore story of thin air was funny lmao but he is a loser and a nut like Romney. Romney will soon be a three time loser like Gore was.

It would be cool if Obama loses the Popular vote so the right wing gets to know what it was like for the left wing the first four of Bush lmao. I'd love it as an Independent who has no need to vote since I'm self made and none of it has any effect on me. I do as I please regardless, run my companies and travel on my Jet when I feel like it. It only has an effect on Republicans since fact is they use welfare more than Democrats, live in small Towns and are least educated which is odd when they carry on about the hand that feeds them.

So sad too bad for Romney because with the economy in big improvements, 2013-16 will be big recovery years and Obama will be the hero who got Bin Ladin and health care the first term and the full recovery of economy and end of Iran in second term. That will harm Condi Rice in her run in 2016 against Hillary.

I read Hillary plans to get a face lift, lose weight and run against Condi who also plans to run that year. You have 12 more years of a Democratic President people but Democrats had that with Reagan and Bush so you will deal with it. You might even have 16 more years!

Let's just drop back a few months and get some perspective on this question. Not a year ago the right wing despised Romney. Right wing talk radio was bar-b-quing him regularly and most of the republican primaries were about scrambling to find any right winger but him to nominate. Then Romney squished everyone and almost overnight, the establishment reps decided he was simply wonderful.

So here is the likely process if Mitt gets the win. There will be a season of giddy excitement because Obama was defeated. That will not last as Mitt reverts to his true Mass Liberal self (he already started that move in the debate). Then the right will turn on him. With Obama out of the way, it will be open season to hate Mitt.

This happened somewhat to Bush but it took a few years before they turned on him. It should happen much more quickly and in that when you get down to it, nobody actually likes this guy, it will mean 4 or 8 very long and lonely years in Washington for Willard.
