Obama skips security briefings, 4 brave Americans die due to his incompetence and malfeasance. Embassies worldwide under attack, BO beds Jay_Z, the ex drug dealer who shot his own brother, Obama hangs with any scumbag who will support him.

Disgraceful.

Obama the liar insults our military by his very existence. His buddy Bill Ayers tried to bomb the military, they haven't forgotten. Obama is friends with Hanoi Jane as well.
The military hates Obama.

that sure is one BS filled editorial. I'm guessing you read the opinion as "news" or even factual. Possibly but not really "fair and balanced"

You don't know anything about American History. You recant American History as if you are an immigrant from some back water country before coming here to America.

The KKK was comprised of Jefferson Davis Democrats, who are today the Republicans at the base of the Party, of course in the South. Those are the Republicans who are resentful of their economic conditions. They are the 47%ers, Romney was speaking of that pays nothing in Federal Income Taxes, and that's verified by the Median Income levels in those Southern States.

Can you name an incident where the Panthers demonstrated violence?

We want this Presdident to lose because he's clueless, failed at taxpayer funded jobs and green energy projects he's attempted, rammed nobamacaretax down our throats, middle east in flames and Europe is not too fond of him either.

Not the dead terrorist Obama killed, unlike those having tea after the destruction of NYC and Washington DC, who were dying laughing at the Duct Tape and Traffic light Bush Response to the 9/11 Attack...

Nothing like that infamous picture of Bush cowering behind Kindergartners after receiving word of the 9/11 attack.....

We've had lower taxes since 2001 and none of that worked for vets or any other segment of the population. It proved disastrous.

Unless you're pretending the Fiscal and Economy collapse didn't happen.

Lower taxes, expand busiinesses large and small and the vets will get hired.
Bush tried 17 times to get fannie/freddie under control before the bottom fell out, only to be blocked by Dodd/Frank. After it crashed, "duh, it's Bush fault!"
The left has been throwing our wallets around for useless entitlements long enough.

No, he just wants a President that looks different than him out of the White House. He's purely motivated by aesthetics. Stop trying to reason with idiots.

So you want a President who lies about his desire to help middle class people (the 47%). You want a President with no experience or ability to handle foreign affairs. One who can't even go abroad on a simple visit without insulting the Brits. You want a President who is obviously deceitful about his income tax returns and hides money in Swiss bank accounts. You want a President who, in the past, has destroyed jobs for thousands of workers so he could fatten his own bank account. You want a President who flip flops on every issue. And you want a Vice President who cares nothing for the middle class,the poor, veterans, and senior citizens. And, You want a Vice President who lies like a rug and thinks his "six-pack" abs and supposed "good looks" will help him get the female vote. He couldn't even speak at an AARP convention without being "booed". Wake up and smell the coffee, mister. We are only 45 days from knowing the outcome of this election. You might find that President Obama will win another four-year term, AND the "do-nothing on purpose" Republicans in Congress will, eventually, be voted out of office. This country should not be ruled by the by the rich and privileged. Power to the middle class, the working poor, the veterans, the students, and the senior citizens of the United States of America!

There was security, two of the Ambassador's Security team personnel were also Killed. What have you been listening to concerning this incident.

..... stop trying to use these Deaths as a political springboard, it's not working.....

It's easier for you to parade a casket through the streets with an image of Ambassador Stevens taped on the side as you pander for votes..

Obama did have something to do with the deaths of the Ambassador and the other 3 Americans - he was told of the possibility of an attack and ignored it. He should have sent in security and TOLD THE AMBASSADOR and Americas that were there - In short he MURDERED THEM. Stop this cover up crap as you and Obama are like a cat in a litter box trying to cover up shet. He WILL TAKE NOT RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY OF HIS FAILURES AND BLAMES EVERYONE ELSE JUST LIKE A KID.

The bill, which had some bipartisan support, would have given job priority to post-9/11 veterans, aiming to put them back to work as firefighters and police officers and in public work projects.

Supporters had modeled the proposal partly after the Civilian Conservation Corps that was used during the Great Depression to employ people to build parks and dams.

..
..
..
it would have required a revenue increase, which many members of the GOP have (Nordquist) pledged to never do.
and that revenue would have gone directly to the states, and then to cities and towns, meant to offset the lack of property tax revenue that normally pays for firefighters and police officers.
.
but as Romney has already pointed out, US citizens don't want more police and firefighters, Wisconsin proved that last year.

We have stopped training the Afgan army because they murder us.
What is Obama going to do ? Keep them there so they continue to be murdered ? Let them play tiddly-winks until after the election ?
If training cannot be done he must bring them home now and not put it off for political purposes.
He is bringing them home now.... The Troops in Afghanistan are being drawn down and returned home. If the Troops coming home meant anything to you, other than as a political tool, you'd know they were being sent home every day.

You go into the military to protect the country, and keep her values, and you respect those who show you respect. President Bush respects our military. The foreign President does not, he only knows anti American rhetoric. Military people know the difference. That is also why they will vote for Romney in November, and why Democrats will do everything they can to disqualify their votes.
The Military, a big part of the Virginia Vote in the Norther section of the State, and in the Southern Section of the States.... Is pretty much in the bag for Obama.

FORK U Azzhole.

I spent 6 years with my azz belonging to the U.S.Army in the VN Era , how about you ?

You ignored my statement that they are being murdered and training the ANA has stopped.

Now is the time to bring them ALL home not a 3 year phased withdrawal.
