as for the Volt, GM should have done a lot more R&D, engineering, and testing before selling this crap to the public....
the Volt will never sell because a limited-range vehicle has very limited application in the US.....
I've heard that GM is re-volting.

No one hates you for being beautiful. It's the ugly mind that's a problem.

And beautiful women go places....like couches, beds, countertops and late night bank deposit boxes.

So you compare the dot-com bust to the worst recession in 80 years combined with a near financial meltdown & a housing collapse. Wow
Bush started two wars & we still have expenses from two wars.
The fact is that Obama started with a far worse situation than Bush.
The fact is Romney lied on his website.
And really, I keep asking yet you keep being unable to answer : what did the Democrats pass during the first 9 months of 2007 that took us from the rosy great & wonderful Bush economy to the worse recession in 80 years.
The fact is Bush increased spending more that Obama.
The fact is that if you start with their first full fiscal year, Bush increased spending 3 times faster than Bush.
You can yell, scream, pout, & continue to writhe on the floor like a spoiled brat in the toy aisle at Walmart or just admit I am right.
And really, playing the budget deficit garbage again? Well golly gee Batman, you can reduce your budget deficit by just running a bunch of stuff off budget - like two wars.
You are either the most duped pretend engineer on the planet or think other people are dumb enough to believe your constant flow of imaginary stories.
Gee Whiz Davey, Bush didn't start any wars, they were voted on by Congress,Davey? Keep it up Davey, we have more??

Gallup put Obama ahead of Mitt Romney by 4 points after the DNC Convention. Don't forget in 1980, Gallup had Jimmy Carter up over Ronald Reagan by 4 points in mid to late September.
Just sayin'.
The Wall Street Journal said this back in 2010: Comparisons between the Obama White House and the failed presidency of Jimmy Carter are increasingly being made — and by Democrats.
http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000142405274...
How much more similar in comparison are they now two years later?
Romney is NOT Reagan,

Reagan would never have delayed his prime time speech for a Clint stunt.

Everyone please forgive my causing any confusion by posting two separate things into one post from two separate websites without reposting both of them again - which I had done earlier.

So just to clarify:

The Washington Times' website about Obama's then and now comparisions in Florida and Virgina was dated September 2011. Again, my bad.

HOWEVER...and this is especially for Homer...

A Gallup website dated September 19, 2012, does report nationwide Obama leads Romney by only 1%.

So that part was recent and accurate.

Can we all drop this "anti-islam" movie crap now?

"The Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi was in fact "a terrorist attack" and the U.S. government has indications that members of al Qaeda were directly involved, a top Obama administration official said Wednesday morning.

"I would say yes, they were killed in the course of a terrorist attack on our embassy," Matt Olsen, the director of the National Counterterrorism Center, said Wednesday at a hearing of the Senate Homeland Security Committee"

Obama by your own measure, you've failed to deliver the jobs Americans need.
In fact, no president in modern history has ever asked to be re-elected with this many Americans out of work. Twenty-three million Americans are struggling for work, and more families wake up in poverty than ever before.
It’s unacceptable. And now, America needs jobs -- not a litany of President Obama’s excuses, scapegoats, and alibis.
To change direction, we need a president who will own up to the simple truth: Americans are not better off than they were four years ago.
I Romney am running for president to help create a better future for America. A future where everyone who wants a job can find one. Where no senior fears for the security of their retirement. Where every parent knows that their child will get an education that leads to a good job and a bright horizon.
VOTE FOR REAL HOPE AND CHANGE!!!

Romney - "My job is is not to worry about those people. I'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives."

This daft Mormon sealed his own doom with that big silver foot inserted deep into his pie hole.

Melt down Mutt open his pie hole again...

"the president has been a disappointment. He told you he'd keep unemployment below 8 percent. Hasn't been below eight percent since. Fifty percent of kids coming out of school can't get a job. Fifty percent. Fifty percent of the kids in high school in our 50 largest cities won't graduate from high school. What're they gonna do? These are the kinds of things that I can say to that audience that they nod their head and say, "Yeah, I think you're right." What he's going to do, by the way, is try and vilify me as someone who's been successful, or who's, you know, closed businesses or laid people off, and is an evil bad guy. And that may work."

(Note: Obama did not promise his policies would keep unemployment under 8 percent, and 50 percent of college graduates are not unemployed.)

The president does not have to vilify you Mutt.
It twas YOU with that silver tongue that vilified you.
You really 'built this' all by yourself.
You forgot to wear your magic undies again!

A college professor has been placed on leave after she allegedly forced her class to sign a pledge to vote for President Obama in the upcoming elections.

Early last week Professor Sharon Sweet at Brevard Community College (BCC) allegedly told students to sign a pledge that reads:“I pledge to vote for President Obama and Democrats up and down the ticket.”


A college professor has been placed on leave after she allegedly forced her class to sign a pledge to vote for President Obama in the 2012 elections.

The pledge was printed off of GottaVote.org , a website funded by the Obama campaign.

University administrators said they learned about the incident late Thursday afternoon and launched an investigation, after they received a phone call from a concerned parent.

“Based on the allegations, Associate Professor Sweet has requested, and been granted, a leave of absence without pay effective immediately,” reads a statement put out by John Glisch, Associate Vice President for Communications at BCC.

“The college will continue its investigation into the matter, which will include interviews with all students in her class,” continues the statement.

Sweet’s actions may have also violated Florida’s election

<quoted text>What is Romney's home state? Michigan? Massachusetts? Utah? Mexico? Cayman Islands?
Romney was born and attended private schools in Michigan as did his wife Ann aka Mamie. Romney's dad was president of American Motors and a three term governor of the state. While American Motors was your basic bullshyt deal, George Romney was easily the best Governor Michigan ever had.

Mitt rode down heavily greased rails throughout his life__he's not the guy this nation needs at the top presently, never was actually, might have been a good Senator though.

Obama won fair and square in 2008 beating a popular (D) in the primaries and a very seasoned and wealthy career politician in the general.

He's moved the nation forward against overwhelming odds, little cooperation from the Republicans and not much better cooperation from the Bush Administration's and by proxy the nations perceived enemies in the Middle East and the Islamic world.

Call him lucky, the DOW is cranking, S&P is creeping toward it's magic number and while fuel and food prices are not handsome they are not horrible either and projected to slowly decline.

Four more years of Obama will benefit the USA in many ways.
