If Americans don't stop abusing their 1st amendment right to free speech, it will be in danger of being taken away, like the 2nd amendment will soon be.

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney claims that his plan would balance the federal budget in eight to 10 years. But so far, he has not made public the details on how he would be able to do that, and one neutral budget expert calls it “an unrealistic goal.”
Also, Romney and running mate Paul Ryan exaggerate when they say “five different studies” prove that all of the stated goals of Romney’s revenue-neutral tax plan could be accomplished without raising taxes on middle-income taxpayers. Two of the five “studies” were blog items. And none of three other studies was nonpartisan: Two were written by Romney campaign advisers and a third was by a former economic adviser to President George W. Bush.
NObama claims printing money and overspending while borrowing more money from china at 30% interest will stimulate our Obamconomy. Oh and you gotta love his tax spendings on guaranteed failing businesses that even other dems told him not to put the money on, and that is a huge list. How about the fact that even dems are rejecting near every policy he signs for and every budget because even they know those budgets are guaranteed trouble. I really liked the one where he got no votes and the poor guy that brought it into question got yelled at and even said he didnt want to bring it to them cause even he knew it was unfair and wouldnt pass.

LMAO pretty bad a secretary knows more about the policies then the man who wrote them.

By the way NObamacare, 27 new taxes, and he didnt want to pass that as a tax. See difference between you and me, is I know what Im talking about, I don't take either side to lap dog up to. I dont like romney persay, but I do like ryan and NObama getting 4 more years is suicide. But stupid a@# ignorant losers like you that just blowes off the HUGE number of cons and say its ok, and takes his what one questionable pro that was more the military then him anyway as he brags about it like he was rambo and the fact hes black and you are willing to cut everyones balls including your own kids just so you don't have to say your're wrong. go f@#$ yourself.

And say what you want about our insults, all NObama does is insult AND when he failes he just blames the other guy, what a f@#$ing hero.

Romney’s ‘Apology Tour’ Attack Line Crashes on the Shoals of Reality

Now, the apology tour was a figment of the right-wing imagination. But this was beside the point. The point was that it set the tone Romney wanted: Obama apologizes for America to the bad guys, and Romney would stand firm for America.

And so, when militant Islamists attacked an American embassy, Romney automatically reverted to this line, releasing a statement charging “that the Obama administration’s first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks.” This was triply false:(1) The statement in question was not made by the Obama administration but by the embassy staff,(2) it was not a response to the attacks but a (justifiably panicked) attempt to preempt them, in keeping with a long-standing bipartisan practice of distancing the U.S. from inflammatory religious provocation, and (3) it was not an expression of sympathy with attackers or other militants.

It’s not clear how well Romney would have understood the falsity of his claim. Perhaps he was confused about the timeline or the authorship, making his statement merely a single lie rather than a double or triple lie. In any case, Romney’s abhorrence of apologies required him to avoid steering his attack even slightly away from its original course. He insisted,“It’s never too early for the United States government to condemn attacks on Americans and to defend our values.”

Never too early? Not even before the attacks had occurred, which is when the statement in question was issued?

The miscalculation at work here is that Romney believed his “Apology Tour” method would neatly fit the events at hand — take an event that sort of vaguely resembled an Obama apology to Muslims who don’t like us, twist it around, and call it a day. But Romney had grown accustomed to spinning fantasies cobbled together from months-old Obama speeches and nurtured into legend by extensive repetition and exaggeration in the conservative subculture. What he failed to realize from the outset was that the embassy attack was an immediate, high-profile event that he could not hope to rewrite so brazenly. Forced to confront the yawning chasm between reality and the fantasy he had wallowed in so long, Romney was exposed and, justifiably, discredited.

Back in 1980 Gallup had Jimmy Carter up over Ronald Reagan by 4 points in mid to late September Carter was up 8 points in October.
http://times247.com/articles/gallup-had-carte...
I Knew 1980 -- This Election Is No 1980

The economy was in worse shape in 1980 than it is today. Jimmy Carter could easily be criticized for mismanaging the economy and foreign affairs, given the Iranian hostage crisis. Obama, by contrast, consistently polls better than Romney on national security. What’s more, as Reagan biographer Craig Shirley has explained, the electorate of 1980 is vastly different than it is today. Far more states were in play, and Dem swing voters — the so-called “Reagan Democrats”— formed a much bigger chunk of the Democratic Party, making a late break of such a significant magnitude much more feasible than today. The electorate is far more polarized and the map far narrower this time around.

Ed Rollins, who worked on the Reagan campaign in 1980, notes yet another key difference: Romney is not Reagan, and Obama is not Carter. As Rollins says of Romney:“On his best day, he’s not a Ronald Reagan.” Carter was partly undone because of his debate performance; that’s less likely to happen to Obama.

There is another difference, at least equally crucial and often overlooked today: 1980 was a three-way race. Reagan won a landslide of the electoral vote, but less than 51% of the popular vote. President Carter's support collapsed in the last weeks of the campaign, with dissident liberals breaking off to support the independent candidacy of John Anderson, who scored 6.6% of the vote - the fourth best performance by an independent since World War II, after Ross Perot in 1992 and 1996 -- and George Wallace in 1968.
If Anderson had not run - if Carter had not so alienated his liberal base - what would have happened in November? Who can say - but let's remember the actual events of 1980, not a too-gratifying legend.

President Obama and many of his fellow Democrats continue to call for higher taxes on the wealthy. And, according to results of a CNN/ORC International Poll released Wednesday, many Americans agree that it's the only way the country can dig itself out of its current economic mess.

It's not quite the multi-trillion figure the U.S. needs to pay off the deficit, but for many of those who responded to the CNN/ORC International poll it's evidently a good enough start.

Mitt Romney your hero Is a
Shape-shifting, cream-cheese LDS hustler with a spray-on tan. The Republican Presidential nominee. A fiscal Conservatives wet dream, which is to say malleable and not-too-bright, but can be counted on to look after the interests of the very rich and to never raise their taxes (see George W. Bush). Republican-leaning fox hag women will vote for Mitt based on his looks alone. Romney will never be our next president due to the sheer stupidity of the Tea bag haters chasing away votes of independents and typical republican voter witch will stay home. Will also hammer gay people to assure the Bible-beaters and red-faced Southern haters that he worries about what consenting adults do in bed just as much as they do.

Romney has NOTHING to with it-oboTIC. And The FACT is-the UN Ambassador does NOT know...BUT is beefing up security in Yemen(HOME to al qeada).

Get a brain, and stop trying to distort REALITY.

----------

On Sunday on "Face the Nation," Libyan President Mohamed El-Magariaf said he believes the last week's deadly attack in Benghazi was premeditated.

"The way these perpetrators acted, and moved -- I think we, and they're choosing the specific date for this so-called demonstration, I think we have no...this leaves us with no doubt that this was pre-planned, determined...pre-determined, " El-Magariaf said.

----------

"I think it's clear there were extremist elements that joined and escalated the violence. Whether they were al Qaeda affiliates, whether they were Libya-based extremists or al Qaeda itself I think is one of the things we'll have to determine," Rice said.

The administration has been reluctant to provide details about the ongoing investigation, but it has beefed up security at U.S. missions, including 50 Marines at the U.S. Embassy in Yemen.

I like the way you, as a slimeball, skipped over the assertion you asked to be proved, which was that raising taxes on the rich doesn't even dent our fiscal problems.

Now you post a quote that says it's a good start.

You are an idiot. Kicking Obama out of office IS A GOOD START!
