I am thrilled you understand the opportunities available to all of us. I am sorry you never had the abilities to succeed. It is never too late to "focus on a goal and achieve great things". I wish you the best.

I think it was photo-op because that's exactly what it was.
Romney (or someone on his team) thought it would be a good idea to run to Walmart, buy a few thousand dollars worth of supplies and have the press there to take pictures of Romney himself loading it on the truck.
His concern and compassion may have been real, but that moment was fake and America saw through it.
It was a bad political move and it hurt his image.
And how do you know all of this????????

Nobody is dedicated to low wages and struggling. They simply find themselves in that group. They are old, students, the working poor, the disabled, the unemployed who once had jobs lost to outsourcing and the Great Recession and some VERY rich folks as well who are included in the numbers "to be dismissed" by Mitt Romney. Guess who got dismissed? ;-)
the poor retired pensioners and the generational welfare ARE the CORE of those voters and ARE THE CONSEQUENCE of several FG programs, starting with SS. u fail to mention that. pity....

Cutting Through Hype, Hypocrisy In Vote Fraud Claims

In general, the evidence shows that electronic voting fraud, voter suppression and similar dirty tricks by public officials pose a serious threat to the democratic process. But this research is difficult because officials control the information. Also, research into official wrongdoing tends to be sporadic, under-funded and so controversial as to be career-threatening for researchers. Major news organizations are reluctant to report even allegations of official fraud and other wrongdoing, especially in the most important elections. So, reporters and other researchers need courage and skill, as well as management support.

are you now implying that the MAJORITY of the generational welfare poor are below average intelligence? about, what, 90% of them never attend college, let alone graduate, right? must be, according to ur post, THEY ARE BELOW AVERAGE INTELLIGENCE.

NEW YORK (CNNMoney)-- Economists think Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney would be better for the economy than President Obama. But they're not very enthusiastic about either of them.

Nine of 17 top economists surveyed by CNNMoney picked Romney when asked whose election would help the economy grow more. Only three picked Obama.

But the remaining five made no pick, with several suggesting neither would provide much of a lift to the sagging economy.

what I hear when the Pres speaks of exactly what he supposdly said, I hear the words that will give HIM the most cover for whatever his underlings did or did NOT do.
am I alone?
the same with his sssslooow, carefully worded response about Rice and why/what she told the news outlets. words that leave MUCH room for interpretation, deflection and denial.
take off ur Obama hats and listen as if it were Bush or Romney saying the words. pity...
Caught my name as I was scrolling by and to be honest with you higgans, I'm starting to wonder if you know how military orders are issued.

I've got news for ya too.

The FBI does not do the "background check" for Top Secret Clearance, so you might want to do a little research before you throw that one out there again.

I haven't said anything up to now because I don't challenge whether or not a person has served and I was afraid it would look like that's what I was doing, but I'm telling you right now, if you had a Top Secret Clearance (as you claim) you had more than a background check and it wasn't the FBI that did it.

Anything else you would like to discuss right now?

Republican and Democratic congressional leaders emerged from a meeting with President Barack Obama on Friday pledging to find common ground on taxes and spending that would allow them to avert an upcoming "fiscal cliff" that could send the economy back into recession.

The top lawmakers spoke to reporters as a group for the first time in more than a year in what aides said was a joint decision to project a message of unity.

Each side at least signaled a willingness to put "on the table" issues dear to the two parties for decades, agreeing on a framework to discuss both tax and entitlement reform next year.

Who are CNN's 17 economists?

Inquiring minds want to know.

CNN: Economists reluctantly pick Romney

CNN is running a story today saying that the majority of the 17 economists surveyed by CNN picked Romney as better for the economy. Nine picked Romney, three picked Obama and five said neither, because the president doesn't have enough influence over the economy.

So, being a devotee of Paul Krugman, the Nobel winning Keynesian economist who clearly would say Obama, I'm wondering who the 17 economists were. I want to know how they split on the Supply-Side vs. Keynes question, because you can survey until you're blue in the face, but if you ask people who base their answer on ideology rather than observation, you're going to get a stupid answer.

Think, for example, if we decided to survey the question of evolution. If more than half the people surveyed are creationists, the answer is going to be creationism. But that doesn't change the validity of evolution.

Economists who still champion Supply-Side nonsense should be sued for malpractice. They're like physicians who still advocate bleeding to remove evil humors. They're like astronomers who still advocate an earth-centric universe.

So, tell us, CNN: Who are your 17 economists?

So ask yourself this honey...

Who changed?

Obama and the democrats are still saying the same thing.

Ask yourself this one too...

If Obama is unwilling to work with the other side why did the republicans decide a deal could be worked out after they met with him?

You've got this narrative backwards.

Not according to the polls it's not.

I've posted the links before and I'm tired of spoon feeding you people real information so look it up yourself.

they did mine, jack. people back home told me guys with FBI ID asked them questions. of course, that was 1975.
but, hey, wasn't that the FBI checking on Patreaus? something to do with s e c u r i t y?
I guess that lil' fact makes MY claim, er, more plausible?
and, yes, I did have a TS SPEC CAT clearance from APr/May 1975 until my ETS in Oct 1978. TS was NOT high enough to assist in the live communication links between the spooks from the Emabassy coming to my Army ComCenter to converse (via teletype) with their bosses back in the USofA (Langley or DC?).
unless one absolutely 100% knows and can PROVE they know 100% of everything, I would NOT make a statement such as the one U made.
they may not have investigated YOU, I only assume that since they did ME (maybe it was the SPEC CAT?), they did all. I know they didn't when I had only a Secret level clnc at Ft.Campbell.
I am always amazed when folks like u try to call what I post ABOUT MY PERSONAL LIFE'S EXPERIENCE as being a lie. why? why would I lie? to impress some body like u or Mother or any one else on the Internet? what do I gain by lying?
remember my assessment of ur Service and being gay? I was right about that, wasn't I? and I don't even KNOW u and could figure out that IF what u said were true, it had to be that way. that's called common sense and educated, logical thinking.
u might try it some time instead of making uninformed, ill-formed posts.lol
