When Breitbart died there was talk of many tapes, and investigative reports still available to be released before the election. When they released that video last week just before the debate Obama realized just what is out there in internet land, and he knows it spells trouble for him. He cannot keep them from exposing his past, and he is scared to death about what they could have in their possession. He is rattled, I think it is so funny.
I guess that just makes you dense as that tape has been available since 2007.

In 2008 the majority of American voters put their in trust in Obama and Obama failed them and that fact is probably eating at Obama.

I have to disagree with you! Obama is a narcissist, therefore he can't feel or see anyone but himself. He has blamed everyone for his problems, and will continue to do so the rest of his miserable life. He hasn't help anyone but himself!

The Obama you see today is the real Obama. Without a teleprompter he is afraid to say anything for fear he will show his true Muslim colors. He is a fraud.

That's because he doesn't have one except for increasing the numbers of those in poverty in the USA.
Everyone, every demographic group is doing worse than they were 4 years ago.
Obama has had more than enough time to get things moving on the economy but now he wants to start this late in the game....I don't think so.
This is probably his main problem because if he all of a sudden comes up with a plan most will say "Why not two years ago things were bad then too"
He has ignored the problems of this country until the campaign started and had someone critiquing him (Romney) when the US news media should've been doing it all along.

Jeeze... I have to say you're right, Jim.

As a conversation with a friend of mine on these matters went today... if a man isn't doing the job you expected of him, you begin to think of replacing him... and usually the turn around is far quicker than four years.

I think the media did Obama a great disservice by giving him a pass. Two to three years ago they were saying the economy is getting better and unemployment is showing signs of dropping when in fact that wasn't the case.
Now, if there was any real sign of improvement it would be met with skepticism by the American people until it is clear that it is real.
The media should have questioned everything Obama did and ask why he wasn't doing anything on the economy.

Yes, six or eight months into Obama's term I just stopped looking for the big changes that he said were coming almots immediately, FDR style...

I figured if any changes came, I'd notice them...

...Still waiting, I hate to say.

Pray for Romney and America.

Ask everyone. Spread the request.

The second debate is tonight, townhall style with plants in for Barack, BUT we can have God on our side. Barack is going to come out slugging and claiming that Romney is lying, which is UNPROFESSIONAL BUT HE'LL GET AWAY WITH IT WHILE GOP COULD NEVER.

Well, we were seeing red flags everywhere, the Reverend Wright racism at church thing that would have sank any other candidate just by itself, the radical hippie/zippy friend of his, forget that guy's name right now... and a couple other major revealtions that Obama and the press, even the Republicans, mostly, just sailed by on...

Hillary was also pointed with things lik what will Obama do when he recieves the "3am phone call"...

And on and on... and still the masses in some ways just seem to want to ignore that Obama has basically done nothing in four years.

It's the real Biden too. And the real Hillary.

America is a shipwreck. With those three incompetents at the helm, America is lurching about in the storm and about to crash on a rock.

Romney and Ryan are desperate to get in there and save it. If they are to be faulted, it would be that they are so scared for America they're doing all they can to get rid of the incompetents.

If Romney actually gets elected and makes it happen, then I'll be the first one applauding... so far, he strikes me as just another sleazy Republican willing to say anything to get elected, just a short step above Richard Nixon.

But I have to admit, Obama is not a bit better.

Lesser of two evils? Who can say, either vote's a vote for evil... heh.

Very good point. I have made no bones on here about being a democrat but I know that Obama is not a good president, in my opinion, the worst in my lifetime. He is not a bad president because he is a democrat, he is a bad president because he is who he is.
I think he has twisted the Democratic party platform into something it should have never been.

Did you see where many companies are telling their people if Obama wins the election they will have to lay off people. Let's see how many people vote to save their jobs. Lord knows if Obama did win there would not be any new jobs. It is perfectly legal. They are giving people the option, not telling them how to vote. I love it.
