Is every word out of your mouth a lie?(of course it is, you're a lib) Every site save pmsnbc knows at worst it was a draw and at best Ryan took it by 4.

Its a conflict of interest.
But that sums up this administration.
Gotta keep the playing field skewed in favor of liberals to create the illusion they're a viable party.

Umm, the Democrats are not only a viable party, they are currently defeating Romney and the Republicans. Take a look at the electoral vote projections on any site. If Obama carries Ohio, which he is leading in, he's pretty much got the election sewn up.

Wrong!!!!!!!!!!

As U.S. operations in Iraq end, tallying up the costs and benefits of a nine-year ordeal is a daunting task. Estimates on Iraq War spending vary. The Congressional Research Service has put the Operation Iraqi Freedom pricetag at $806 billion. President Obama said that the Iraq War would cost over $1 trillion, all told. Either way, compared to past U.S. conflicts, spending on the Iraq war has been relatively small—at its height, spending on WWII helped drive government spending to 42 percent of GDP, according to the Congressional Budget Office. At its height, operations in Iraq cost around 1 percent of GDP.

Spain also has 25% unemployment for adults, 50% for teenagers who are able to work. Why compare our country to Spain? We are far from the same, very far.

The U-6 unemployment figure didn't move a nudge. Explain that one.
