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.

I think so, one of many, many GOP lemmings rushing to dive over the cliff. I say good riddance!

Here was Romney raw and unplugged—sort of unscripted. With this crowd of fellow millionaires, he apparently felt free to utter what he really believes and would never dare say out in the open.

He displayed a high degree of disgust for nearly half of his fellow citizens, lumping all Obama voters into a mass of shiftless moochers who don't contribute much, if anything, to society, and he indicated that he viewed the election as a battle between strivers (such as himself and the donors before him) and parasitic free-riders who lack character, fortitude, and initiative.

Yet Romney explained to his patrons that he could not speak such harsh words about Obama in public, lest he insult those independent voters who sided with Obama in 2008 and whom he desperately needs in this election.

These were sentiments not to be shared with the voters; it was inside information, available only to the select few who had paid for the privilege of experiencing the real Romney.

COMING SOON: More from the secret Romney video.(Romney tells his donors he doesn't believe in a two-state solution for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, that resolving this conflict is "almost unthinkable," and that he would merely "kick the ball down the field.")

Major report released on Fast and Furious, DOJ official resigns
A major report released Wednesday on the Operation Fast and Furious scandal faulted a range of federal agencies for the failed anti-gunrunning program -- and has resulted in the resignation of one Justice Department official.
Jason Weinstein, the deputy assistant attorney general for the Criminal Division, is resigning in the wake of the Justice Department inspector general report on Fast and Furious. The report essentially concludes that he is the most senior department official who was in a position to stop Fast and Furious.
The nearly 500-page report was completed after investigators reviewed 100,000 documents and interviewed 130 people.
The reports also says that no one responsible for the case at ATF Phoenix or the U.S. Attorney's Office raised a serious question or concern about the government not taking earlier measures to stop Fast and Furious.

They don't even apologize to Holder, they all but wanted him crucified.
This is totally insane of you Homer and of Holder.

This internal probe of the DOJ, by the DOJ, found 14 individuals to blame the total bungled affair on.

At least it was bungled was acknowledged; however, this is not the end of the investigation.

Although you do display a lot more level of refinement Carol than some of your fellow conservative posters. You still have that filter engaged all the time in your brain, the kind that filters out anything rational or logical that just might make sense if only it didn't clash with conservative ideology.

No one asks the question why does the US always take on Israel's viewpoint as if they were the only oppressed nation on the planet. What makes them so special that they are always at the top of the list when a country like Sudan or another war torn country in Africa gets totally ignored. When 1000's and in some cases 100,000's are being killed or Genocide is being committed elsewhere. By taking a view point that everyone is treated equal border disputes and culture clashes can sometimes be solved without going to war. Not always but it surely must be the first avenue explored. Now take Romney's position and ask yourself how he might be viewed as an objective negotiator between Israel & everyone who surronds its borders.

Here are the democrat lemmings panicking because in stressing the Romney tape they have unintentionally made Americans very much aware of the Obama as the redistribution POTUS, who actively seeks people to become more dependent on government, shown that 53% of Americans cannot carry the burden and highlighted Obama's class warfare. All is out there.
