Excellent point. The best thing to do when you're broke is go out and buy another new car.

I wonder what other "federal funding" Mitt and Paul will go after once they're in office.

National Parks, perhaps?

The National Weather Service?

Food and Drug Safety Programs?

Science Research (which is 80% funded by the government)?

Zoos, museums and science centers?

Interstate highway system?

The FAA?

The CDC?

Public libraries?

It might be Big Bird today, but what will it be tomorrow?

I wonder if Mitt has thought about or cares about how many jobs will be lost if he defunds PBS? Killing jobs is what he knows best.

I'll bet you believe Washington DC is still inhabited by poor black people. I hate to tell you, but they got run off to the 'burbs long ago. DC is now filled with rich white Republicans.

Like I said, Barack is Bush Heavy. Iraq wasn't finished yet, he sent troops to Afganistan, and bombed drones over Pakistan on Day 2 of his office. Barack has spent two thirds the money 572,153,637,000 in Afganistan in 3 years than Bush did in entire Iraq. More troop casualties too in the first year alone.

Voting for Barack is voting for Bush to get another 8 years of failed spending policies.

Barack is unable t o quit spending. He has an addiction to spending. Americans WON'T SEE A PENNY OF HIS TAX INCREASES because ALL WILL GO TO HIS CRONIES AS BEFORE.

Free phones is the job of a trinkets salesman not a President.

Calling a compassionate and effective father, husband and businessman soulless and cretinous shows only your ridiculous, insane extremism, which actually sounds almost as bad as the extremism of Obama responding to the murder of four in Libya by knowingly inflaming with false rhetoric the Islamic rabble in 20 countries to riot and murder to take American's attention off his failure to protect his own diplomats.
If you think Romney is compassionate, you probably also think Sarah Palin is an intellectual.

Accurate and to the point.

Yes , many D.C. areas are being upgraded in the housing market but to claim that it's rich Republicans moving in alledgedly in high numbers in a Dem dominated city is pure propaganda to anyone regardless of education level.

Obviously his LEFTY remark means he has data to back it up, if he doesn't than you do.

I'll debate your LEFTY azz on any subject and your LEFTY azz will find out how educated and observant I am.

Every dark cloud,eh?
At least Oblamer learned one thing during the debate.
He learned what a real leader looks and sounds like.
The debate on foreign policy should even be better.
About the only thing Oblamer knows about the Middle East is they have lots of tough sand traps.

Your levels of education and observation have made themselves quite clear on these threads. Back to the drawing board.
