Electoral vote 365 to 173
The popular vote was 69,456,897 to 59,934,814, respectively. Obama received the most votes for a presidential candidate in American history.

Obama a 'Little Flat' in Denver

And 150 people fail to show for fundraiser.

President Obama was in Denver this afternoon for a fundraiser. But the event does not appear to have been quite the success the campaign was hoping for.

According to today's White House pooler, the New York Times's Peter Baker, "The crowd was obviously supportive and glad to see him, though the room at times felt a little flat and Potus seemed a little tired after a long day that’s not even close to being over." (The president has two more fundraisers tonight in California.)

Moreover, the campaign announced that the president "[would] headline a reception for 700 at the Hyatt Regency Denver at the Colorado Convention Center. General admission tickets started at $500 apiece, though a selected number of Gen44 and Grassroots tickets were available for $250."

The campaign now says, according to the pooler, that only 550 people showed up.

Correct. Neocons are former Jewish liberals who came to realize that the Democrat Party was selling out Israel to the Muslims.

Many American Jews remain liberals because they have short memories and think guys like Obama are their buddies. Very stupid. Tough shit for them.

As expected you're answer is vague. Specify these responsibilities you claim corporations owe to the community.

Maybe you can use Solyndra as an example?

Therefore I take it you are voting for Romney; he can speed up the process of bankruptcy and make a handful richer than ever and fools like you think you'll benefit from it. The Ryan plan eliminates Medicare with a voucher program requiring the elderly to go shopping for insurance with a $6000 voucher. The ones with their hands out are the corporations and the billionaires; like Joe Rickets, oh yes, who rails against entitlments! Has $10 million to spend to lie about the President; and then, wants the state of Illinois to pay for Wrigley Field for his Chicago Cubs? Oh please, I hope that Rahm Emmanual tells him to gf himself.
You rightwingers are such damn fools it's not even funny.
"silly"
As to I am voting for, it is really none of your business, but I will tell you this, It will not be for the loser currently occupying the oval office, nobama. I am sure that does not surprize you.
To respond to some of your nonsense. You know and I know the Ryan plan is going no where. Just fear mongering on your part. That being said both Social Security and Medicare need adjustments, long term neither plan is sustainable. As to the city of Chicago paying for Wrigley Field improvements that will be up to the folks of Chicago, not you, not me. Mr. Ricketts has every right to spend his monies as he sees fit. As to Rahm telling someone to gf himself, that,s about all he has, a big mouth.
I will say you are all knowing, all who disagree with you are;
- dummies
- damn fools
- idiots
- morans
I am all so sure that you have additional names for those who disagree with you. Your right to opine as you wish, but you would like to see Mr. Limbaugh off the air, Fox News shut down, Hannity and O'Rielly in prison.
Peace
PS: No work today, still up about 5:30 AM, pooped, showered and shaved. Lite breakfast. Read the newspaper, worked the crosswords, or should say I tried, the NY Times crossword was more than I was up to. Checked my e-mail, put in a order for my wife and logged on to topix by 8:00 AM. In about an hour I will be off to Jack and Dan's for a couple of ice cold Kokanee Golds and a good ole BS session. Hope you have a grate day!!!

The stupidity of government:
New U.S. claims for unemployment benefits fell slightly last week, government data on Thursday showed, suggesting the labor market continues to expand at a moderate rate.
Here's the good part:
Initial claims for unemployment benefits slipped 2,000 to a seasonally adjusted 370,000, the Labor Department said. The prior week's figure was revised upward 2,000 to 372,000 from the previously reported 370,000.
Only the government and libtards can be this stupid!!!
"flack"
Lets see near 750 thousand out of a job in the last two weeks, no problem. After all 115,000 new jobs were created last month.

Obama and the Democrats have more important things to do like save the rest of the world from their difficulties. Obama is more concerned with his legacy and getting on Mt. Rushmore then he is about the country he was elected to represent.

Romney is already intimately tied to the for-profit college industry. Inside Higher Ed noted that two of his advisers “have lobbied on behalf of the Apollo Group, the parent company of the University of Phoenix.” On the campaign trail, Romney has effusively praised Full Sail University, a for-profit institution. And it seems that his policy platform would be a boon to this industry which is, in many instances, extremely predatory.

Anyone who is in college, or planning to attend college, or any parent who has a kid in college is totally ficked if this vulture gets in the White House.
"silly"
You are correct. In this state tuition at state colleges and universities will go up double digits for the 4 th. straight year, 16% each of the last two years. All under the leadership of democrats, democrat governor, democrat senate and a democrat house. Who's at fault? Gotta be republicans, democrats would never allow increases like that.

Here in PA Gov Corbett & his Republican legislature has drastically cut education spending while handing out tax cuts to corporations. Not just k-12, but colleges & universities saying that too many kids go to college.
This is dumbass Republican thinking. Hand money to corporate America on the backs of school children.
Schools are piling more kids into classrooms, cutting programs like music, arts, foreign language & are forced to raise property taxes on elderly Americans on fixed incomes.
"Real Dave"
One more time you are correct. This state controlled by democrats for umpteen years was recently advised by the courts were not complying with the edict to properly fund public schools. So what has happened? The value of my home has decreased by $70,000 plus and my property taxes have went up. Sounds like dumbass democrat policies. I do not expect you to agree and I know what your response will be, it is Bush's fault.
