We are completely on the same page. Of course, none of this comes from observation. We get our talking points from Rush. Right? ;-)(Thought I'd save poor joe the effort of spouting that off.)
Thanks for admitting your source of information. You should think about adding a few, though. Maybe from the "mainstream"?

Romney says he’ll balance the budget in “Eight to ten years”.

You clods hammer Obama for not doing it in 4.

Go figure.

Since 2000, the US has lost 5.5 million

Most of these jobs moved to China which may pay workers as little as a 99 cents an hour.

Over the last two years, Mitt Romney's made large profits using a tax loophole to pay a low tax rate on profits he made from a company named Sensata.

The Sensata workers from Freeport Illinois are to be laid off near election day.
The lay-offs are in spite of Sensata having record profits.
The jobs are being shipped to China.

Chinese workers receive slave wages (about $1.35-99 cents per hour) in a communist country where plants operate without quality, safety or pollution controls.

American workers are being forced to compete with sweatshop labor with no safety, quality, labor and pollution control standards.

That is, the Sensata workers’ story partly explains why the American middle class is failing and it also partly explains how the superwealthy are becoming even more wealthy.

You know, this is one of the reasons I hope Romney wins. It will be so different having someone in the White House who is a moral upstanding person with no skeletons in his closet. He doesn't drink. He doesn't carouse. He has raised a great family. He is successful in business. He gives oodles of money to charity. I mean, what a difference. I also believe he will be the type of person to build bridges instead of tearing them down. IE: none of this crappola we've had for the last four years. He won't tell the other party right out of the starting gate that they will have to sit in the back of the bus. I'm also willing to bet that his staff will be of like character at his insistence. Lets just hope America has woken up and will give him the win.
For statements that were ruled to be “True” and “Mostly True”, it’s Obama and Biden at 45.0%, Romney and Ryan at 29.1%.

When it comes to “False”,“Mostly False” and “Pants on Fire”, it’s Romney and Ryan at 43.9% and Obama and Biden at 28.8%.

In fact, Romney and Ryan have over 4 times as many “Pants of Fire” lies as the President and Vice President.

Mitt Romney himself has well over half of the total amount of “Pants of Fire” lies (58.6%) of all the candidates COMBINED!

From last weeks debate:

“We, of course, don’t want to have automatic weapons, and that’s already illegal in this country to have automatic weapons.”- Mitt Romney

For those who have no other source of information (that would all you right clingers) automatic weapons are legal in this country. You better give the NRA a call and give them a head's up.

Republicans are notorious for projecting their beliefs and practices on their opponents.
For the past two years the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) passed restrictive and harsh voter ID laws to combat what they claimed was massive voter fraud.
Over the past few months, reports of voter suppression and registration fraud have built up to the point that, like Iraq, this country’s election will be monitored by an international group to stop fraud and intimidation.
The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) is a United Nations affiliate that will deploy 44 observers around the country on Election Day and an additional 80 to 90 members of parliament from nearly 30 countries to monitor American elections.
The OSCE election monitors are from its human rights office that focuses on democratization, and they will be looking for voter suppression activities by conservative groups.
Just another embarrassment Republicans have brought on our country.

Restrictive and harsh voter ID laws. Which ones ? Those being laws that would reuire a picture ID ? So tell us Joe Joe, and at least TRY to be honest here, what is harsh and restrictive about showing a photo ID ? Is it the fact that it reduces voter fraud ? Why don't you enlighten us ? Tell us how this does ANYTHING other than cutting down on fraud. The tell us why YOU don't carry one since you never need one. Joe, I would go past disingenious and say you wouldn't know honesty if it bit your posterior.

NO JOBS FOR DISABLED

Dover, OH

#117821 Oct 24, 2012
President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign refused to hire a Missouri man because he has Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), more commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.

Jeff Lester, who was diagnosed with ALS in 1993, said he has emails that prove the campaign refused to make accommodations for his disability and give him a shot to work for the presidential candidate he’s supported since 2008.

Lester told The Daily Caller that in April 2012 he “received an email inviting me to apply for the Obama campaign Data Academy (after the training for six weeks paying jobs would be offered to top performers) and applied for it since I fulfilled all the job requirements except travel.”

According to Lester, Obama campaign staffer Lena Tom responded that the campaign would not help accommodate his disability.

__________
Little does this guy know that if the B HO care "Complete Lives System" kicks in his care will be dramatically reduced...look it up. Who gets the least care? The very young, the old, and the disabled...
__________

“I don’t immediately have another assignment for this week on hand, but per your bigger question on being able to work virtually – that’s probably not a realistic option,” Tom wrote back, according to Lester.“We know very well the importance of in person communication for this campaign, as things tend to move very quickly. I can’t speak specifically to your disability and how that would or would not present challenges, but ultimately you would likely be asked to relocate for a job with us."

Emails detail unfolding Benghazi attack on Sept. 11

http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-18563_162-5753868...

Hey libs - was it a spontaneous attack, was it a video?

For TWO WEEKS, the White House, Obama, Clinton, Rice lied to us to try and cover this up until after the election.

This is a scandal, no ifs ands or buts.

President Obama's campaign has released a transcript of a 30-minute conversation Obama had with the Des Moines Register's editorial board after the editor complained the president's team had "handcuffed" the newspaper by insisting it be kept off record.
