"U.S. should be more assertive in the world". Definition: Like "W" did, we should go around sticking our noses into other countries business. After all, the United States is perfect in every way.

Remember how we helped Democracy thrive in Iraq by killing tens of thousands of their citizens. Our excuse for being involved was WMD.

How about the Palestinians. Free elections, the Neocons cried. Then when their favorites lost, we reimposed sanctions on a starving people.

Go after Osama in Afghanistan, Bush said. Except when he was cornered, the Bush Administration said "never mind". And we are still mired in that war that is costing us billions that we are borrowing from China. What was it that Mitt was crying about borrowing money from China?

President Eisenhower warned the American Citizens about the "American Military Complex". Looks like we have another candidate who wants to help make them richer.

EXPOSE YOU DONORS MITT, ANY OF THOSE DEFENSE CONTRACTORS ON THAT LIST?

Any American who dodged the draft, then said; " our Armed Forces in harms way are not important", is not qualified to be the Commander in Chief.

more to come

IT was the "the military industrial complex" but whos listening, obviously no one. The average citizen never heard of that and wouldn't appreciate what Eisenhower was warning us about anyway. Its like we're doing everything we can to insure another 9/11.

Do you care to explain how ironical that is? Also, George Washington warned us of meddling.

"required viewing" ... I don't think we do that in America. At least not yet.

I know it's really working with what Obama is doing. They only killed 4 americans. And giving all that money to Egypt really calmed things down. Way to go Mr. President.

Romney probably would like to make Israel a state, if that doesn't work, time for a defense treaty with Israel that will be championed by DeMint-Bachmann-Palin, and if that doesn't work he will 'encourage' NATO to accept Israel as a full member. NATO would probably lose Turkey and some others, but Romney will guarantee Israel's adoration.

Can't wait until November 7th so I can come in this forum and see all you liberals who are circle-jerking right now having Obamagasms come the realization that your next President is going to be Mitt Romney. Oh the whaling and gnashing of teeth is going to be very satisfying.

You won't have to worry about that on November 7. You might want to go ahead and make alternative plans. Mitt Romney and the republicans have worked very hard to alienate the majority of the demographics of the U.S. There simply is not enough old white males to win. Now that the voter suppression efforts in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Florida have been shot down in the courts.

Neither the Obummer or the Mittens teams are Christians, neither Kaine or Allen are Christians. Our country is headed to the immoral dust bin if any of these heretics are elected.

Only true Christians should be in the highest office in the land, or in ANY elected office.

Gary Johnson is a true Christian.

Romney Pulls a U-ey to Drop by Elementary School

FAIRFIELD, Va. Mitt Romney ordered his motorcade to make an abrupt U-turn in rural Virginia today, after zipping by a group of elementary school students waving in the front yard of the school, so he could go back and meet them.

Read it and weep:

By Michael O'Brien, NBC News

A new national poll released Monday prompted wagging tongues in Washington for its result, which showed Mitt Romney leading President Barack Obama on the heels of last week's presidential debate.

A poll conducted by the Pew Research Center found Romney leading Obama, 49 to 45 percent, among likely voters. That sort of result would mark a remarkable reversal in fortunes for Romney, who's trailed Obama in most national polls to date.

Gary Johnson won't even confirm that he is a Christian. The best he will do is admit that he was raised Lutheran.

What we are going to see is a lot of liberals who bow down to Obama changing their screen names.
