Meh, at this point I doubt if Obama nominated Jesus himself for a position the Republicans would block it.

My avatar picture?

Do you know what that picture is and where to comes from and what was the point that was attempted to be made with it's creation and use in the film in which it made it's appearance?

I hardly think that picture is Jesus, it's a comical display of a commercialize creation of one fictional priest's attempt to bring a cool Jesus to the masses. No more Jesus than a coffee mug is. But makes a good point.

That today, there is a commercializing of christian faith in America. You see it, everything from T-shirts to web based games. All to get the faithful to spend their money on "Jesus approved" things.

So that fictional Jesus is my small but ultimate meaningless protest of my religion being turned into someone else's profit machine and the unfortunate people that believe that walking about with a T-shirt saying "Jesus didn't tap out" is somehow a meaningful equivalent contribution to say, helping out at Sunday school, feeding the poor, or sitting down and mourn with someone in mourning over the passing of a love one.

No sir, just buy a coffee mug, a t-shirt, and some DVDS for the kids.%25 of all proceeds go to a charity so you are doing the "right and christian" thing. Just sipping on your coffee feeling proud about how "pure" you are as you pop in the latest "The Bible" DVD.

Nah, I considered what people do with Jesus's image to pass a quick buck now days as far more disrespectful than that avatar picture, don't you think?

Obama will nominate only those that he can control and who will take the fall for him - so he will not/can not be held accountable for anything. His latest is -he knows nothing because he gets his news from the news networks just like we the people - I do not believe this crap either.

Obama has kept these survivors from talking - they will lose their jobs if they speak - one man has already demoted the man that told what happened at Benghazi and now Obama will NOT LET THE GOP HAVE ANY INFORMATION. Issa has been on this a year now calling for information and Obama has lied so many times - another one of his BIG LIES - IRS - I will find out who done this and we will get to the bottom of this - well another lie and he is NOT COOPERATING ON THIS ISSUE EITHER. That is what got him back in office for a second term - IRS KEPT MONIES FROM THE GOP. You are so busy trying to defend Obama and you only listen to MSNBC which is a joke – Rachel Maddow only give3 half the truth – example – she talked about a news reporter that got fired from St. Louis because he made a comment about Obama – LIE he got fired because he got caught up in the IRS issue. How many of the Benghazi survivors have you heard speak??????NONE Stop looking so stupid and do some research instead of making asinine statements and doing what Dems do best - NAME CALLING.

no, that's not even close to true either...the survivors you didn't know about for months were clearly told they can testify if they were called. they were not called by even one of the congressional hearings...
see how ridiculous it is for you to be talking about how informed others are?

Strange you are the only one that has heard that - don't you think the GOP would have already interviewed them - no you are not bright enough to figure that one out. What do you think the GOP has been asking for - THEY WANT ANSWERS and they have gotten NOTHING. Your comment is pure BS.
Prove that Obama said they could testify without having any repercussions. Obama already demoted one that testified that wanted help sent to Benghazi and NO HELP WAS SENT. They could not even find Obama for hours after he spread the lies about "A VIDEO".

no, no iam not the only one that knows this.

just as i had to give you a NYT headline the day after the attack to show you we all knew there were survivors, when you stated that was hidden from the public, you also don't have any clue as to what you are talking about here...

you don't know what you are talking about on any subject it seems, which is what i am pointing out to you now.

if no help was sent, how did those survivors get out? did htey walk to tripoli?

you really are not smart enough to be talking in public, gramps...

When you agree to work for the POTUS- and here is the part you don't seem to understand- you agree to work for the POTUS.

It's worked that way for 240 years.

Right...

Because if you knew a secret that resulted in the death of four people, and someone told you that if you told this secret, you would lose your job,*YOU* are the kind of person who would think his job is more important.

Here's a thought: you are full of [email protected] and the reason you cannot prove anything you say, other than that you are full of [email protected] is because you are full of [email protected]

AH!

All this time I was thinking it was the two million more people who voted for Obama instead of the draft dodger Romney who himself has been hiding money from the IRS in offshore bank accounts.

You are saying help was sent- yep that is why 4 are DEAD and one who spoke out against this when he was told no help was coming and 7 HOURS LATER 4 ARE DEAD and he is now demoted - just like Hillary - 4 are DEAD - WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?

You are clueless as to the real world - you only know what Obama tells you and you eat it up like candy. You lack common sense.

Where is the proof that Obama did not tell the survivors they would be fired if they talked?
What makes you think the GOP would not have interviewed them already IF they could?

NOT TRUE - LOOK AT NIXON AND CLINTON. There are some people that believe in the 'TRUTH' but you can not find any of them working for Obama. Look at the big LIE DURBIN just told. Look at the lies on IRS, NSA, FAST AND FURIOUS AND BENGHAZI.

Four Americans died and no matter how hard you stomp your feet, you aren't going to make it Obama's fault.

So true!

Let’s see, Jesus was a humanitarian who advocated being our brothers’ keepers — such a socialist commie. Despite modern speculation, Jesus never married, but traveled with a band of male disciples — we all know what that means,“bachelors” pushing the gay agenda. Jesus was neither light-skinned nor an Aryan — definitely not an appropriate model for the conservative Southern white community.

My, you are an extremely STUPID person.

Don't take that as an insult. Take it as an evaluation.

Tell me: where is the proof that you didn't have sex with you kid when you were left alone?
