The man of God slam dunked the corrupt and racist islamofascist in the final debate !!!

We know that this doesn't make any difference to his constituents, the ghetto crowd and illegal Mexicans, because any word with more than one syllable, or any 4-letter word, is over their heads.
Furthermore they don't care what happens to this country as long as they get their welfare benefits.

In the past 2 years Hussein Obama added 25 additional million to the welfare rolls, mostly illegal Mexicans and muslims.
48 MILLION ON WELFARE !!!!

The total bill tax payers are forced to pay is now 1.5 TRILLION dollars yeach year.
.

**** REMEMBER ON THE 6TH OF NOVEMBER *******

1- Barrack HUSSEIN Obama, like Iran's Ahmandinjad,
claims the Hololaust is a myth.

2- Barrack HUSSIN Obama, like Iran's Ahmadinijad,
claims that 9/11 was not committed by muslims.

3-Barrack HUSSEIN Obama vehemently claims that we are are war with islam.
He repeatedly said that islam is a peacefull and tolerant religion.

Could it be that Barrack HUSSEIN Obama is on the wrong side?

Romney was flustered by the foreign policy topic. When his lack of knowledge showed, he slithered back to the talking points his red meat eaters binge and purge on. And when asked about creating a trade war with China, Mr. Simpleton was only prepared with some 3rd-grade hand gestures. Obviously, his handlers didn't train him beyond using the phrase 'currency manipulators.' Romney is a walking/talking bumper sticker.

LIE #4: OBAMA MISREPRESENTED ROMNEY’S RECORD ON THE AUTO BAILOUT

THE CLAIM: Obama Claimed That Romney Would Not “Provide Government Assistance To The U.S. Auto Industry.” OBAMA:“You were very clear that you would not provide government assistance to the U.S. auto companies even if they went through bankruptcy. You said that they could get it in the private marketplace. That wasn’t true. They would have gone through.”(President Barack Obama, 2012 Presidential Debate, Lynn University, Boca Raton, FL, 10/22/12)

THE FACTS:“Romney Is Correct In That He Called For A ‘Managed Bankruptcy.’”“Although ‘bankrupt’ often conjures up images of liquidation, Romney is correct in that he called for a ‘managed bankruptcy.’ This is a process in which the company uses the bankruptcy code to discharge its debts, but emerges from the process a leaner, less leveraged company. Ultimately, along with getting nearly $80 billion in loans and other assistance from the Bush and Obama administrations, GM and Chrysler did go through a managed bankruptcy.”(Glenn Kessler,“Fact Check: The Auto Industry Bailout,” The Washington Post, 10/22/12)

THE FACTS: Time’s Michael Scherer:“Obama is wrong. Romney supported guarantees in bankruptcy.‘The federal government should provide guarantees for post-bankruptcy financing’”(Michael Scherer, Twitter Feed, 10/22/12)

THE FACTS: Romney Argued “The Federal Government Should Provide Guarantees For Post-Bankruptcy Financing And Assure Car Buyers That Their Warranties Are Not At Risk. So At Least On That Point, Again, Romney Seems To Have Had The Record Straight.” FOX NEWS’ CHRIS WALLACE:“Finally, very briefly on the auto bailout, in an editorial that Romney wrote in November of 2008, which had the headline he didn’t write it, let Detroit go bankrupt. He did argue for bankruptcy, a managed bankruptcy but at the end he said: the federal government should provide guarantees for post-bankruptcy financing and assure car buyers that their warranties are not at risk. So at least on that point, again, Romney seems to have had the record straight.”(Fox News, 10/22/12)

THE FACTS: FactCheck.org :“Obama says Romney wouldn’t have provide any gov’t assistance for automakers. But Romney did propose loan guarantees.”( FactCheck.org , Twitter Feed, 10/22/12)

THE FACTS: CNBC’s Scott Cohn:“Mitt Romney Did Not Write In That 2008 Op-Ed That He Wanted To Liquidate The Auto Industry. He Did Say He Wanted It Restructured Through Bankruptcy.” CNBC’s SCOTT COHN:“Well, Mitt Romney did not write in that 2008 op-ed that he wanted to liquidate the auto industry. He did say he wanted it restructured through bankruptcy with government guarantees after bankruptcy. That is a key difference from what happened, with the government providing financing for bankruptcy.”(CNBC, 10/22/12)

LIE #5: OBAMA CLAIMED IT COST LESS TO LIBERATE LIBYA THAN AMOUNT SPENT FOR TWO WEEKS IN IRAQ

THE CLAIM: Obama: It Cost Less To Liberate Libya Than What The U.S. Spent In Two Weeks In Iraq. OBAMA:“We were able to, without putting troops on the ground, at the cost of less than what we spent in two weeks in Iraq, liberate a country that had been under the yoke of dictatorship for 40 years. Got rid of a despot who had killed Americans.”(President Barack Obama, 2012 Presidential Debate, Lynn University, Boca Raton, FL, 10/22/12)

THE FACTS: CNN’s John Berman:“Our Verdict Here Is False On The Math.” BERMAN:“So, what are the facts here? The total cost for the first five years of the war in Iraq was 646 Billion. Which breaks down to about 700 Million for two weeks which is less than the 896 million the U.S. spent on military intervention in Libya. Our verdict here is false on the math. Obama was right that Libya is cheap compared to Iraq overall, but he exaggerated by about 200 million dollars when he compared it to two weeks in Iraq.”(CNN, 10/22/12)

LIE #6: OBAMA CLAIMED ROMNEY’S JOBS PLAN WOULD CREAT JOBS OVERSEAS

THE CLAIM: OBAMA:“If we take your advice with respect to how we change our tax codes so that companies that are in profits overseas don’t pay U.S. taxes compared to companies here that are paying taxes, now, that’s estimated to create 800,000 jobs. The problem is they won’t be here; they’ll be in places like China.”(President Barack Obama, 2012 Presidential Debate, Lynn University, Boca Raton, FL, 10/22/12)

THE FACTS: FactCheck.org :“Obama says Romney’s plan would create 800 k jobs overseas. But study says foreign jobs could grow without costing US jobs…”( FactCheck.org , Twitter Feed, 10/22/12)

LIE #7: OBAMA CLAIMED ROMNEY SAID RUSSIA WAS AMERICA’S GREATEST GEOPOLITICAL THREAT

THE CLAIM: Obama Claimed Gov. Romney Has Said That Russia Was The U.S.’ Greatest Geopolitical Threat. OBAMA:“Governor Romney, I’m glad that you recognize that al-Qaida’s a threat because a few months ago when you were asked, what’s the biggest geopolitical threat facing America, you said Russia — not al-Qaida, you said Russia. And the 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because, you know, the Cold War’s been over for 20 years.”(President Barack Obama, 2012 Presidential Debate, Lynn University, Boca Raton, FL, 10/22/12)

THE FACTS:“Romney Has Never Called Russia The No. 1 ‘Enemy’ Or ‘Threat’ To The United States, Despite Obama’s Claims On Multiple Occasions, Including Monday’s Debate.”(Josh Gerstein and Darren Samuelsohn,“Fact-Checking The Third Presidential Debate,” Politico, 10/22/12)

LIE #8: OBAMA LIED ABOUT ROMNEY’S EDUCATION RECORD

THE CLAIM: Obama Claimed That The Massachusetts Scholarship Program Happened Before Romney Became Governor Of Massachusetts. OBAMA:“That happened – that happened before you came into office.”(President Barack Obama, 2012 Presidential Debate, Lynn University, Boca Raton, FL, 10/22/12)

THE FACTS: Obama Was “Incorrect.”“Also, Obama was incorrect when he said the Adams scholarships predated Romney.”(Josh Smith, Sophie Quinton, and Olga Belogolova,“Debate Fact Check: The Third Presidential Debate Between Barack Obama And Mitt Romney,” National Journal, 10/22/12)

LIE #9: OBAMA WAS WRONG ABOUT EGYPTIANS’ OPINIONS ABOUT AMERICA

THE CLAIM: Obama Claimed Opinions About The U.S. Have Improved In Egypt Under His Presidency. OBAMA:“In Egypt we stood on the side of democracy. In Libya we stood on the side of the people. And as a consequence there is no doubt that attitudes about Americans have changed.”(President Barack Obama, 2012 Presidential Debate, Lynn University, Boca Raton, FL, 10/22/12)

THE FACTS: FactCheck.org :“Obama said attitudes of US have changed, mentioning Egypt. In Egypt, only 19% view U.S. favorably, down 3 pts since 08.”( FactCheck.org , Twitter Feed, 10/22/12)

LIE #10: OBAMA CLAIMED THE MILITARY DOESN’T USE BAYONETS

THE CLAIM: Obama:“Governor, We Also Have Fewer Horses And Bayonets Because The Nature Of Our Military Has Changed.” OBAMA:“I think Governor Romney maybe hasn’t spent enough time looking at how our military works. You mentioned the Navy, for example, and that we have fewer ships than we did in 1916 well, Governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets because the nature of our military has changed. We have these things called aircraft carriers where planes land on them. We have the ships that go underwater, nuclear submarines.”(President Barack Obama, 2012 Presidential Debate, Lynn University, Boca Raton, FL, 10/22/12)

THE FACTS: Fox News’ Chris Wallace:“The Marines Still Use Bayonets, So It May Not Be Clear Who Doesn’t Understand What The Military Currently Uses.” FOX NEWS’ CHRIS WALLACE:“Well, as it turns out, in the middle of the debate, after he heard this, a marine tweeted Fox News and said: the Marines still use bayonets, so it may not be clear who doesn’t understand what the Military currently uses.”(Fox News, 10/22/12)

As for Barack's boast that he levied crippling sanctions on Iran. BIG BIG LIE.

OBAMA GRANTED WAIVERS ON SANCTIONS FOR IRAN

Fearing Higher Oil Prices And “Political Trouble In An Election Year,” The Administration Has Resisted Taking Strong Action Against Iran’s Nuclear Program.“Officials fear that too powerful a blow to the world’s third-largest oil exporter could cause an oil price increase, damaging the global economic recovery, undermining international support for the sanctions campaign and creating political trouble in an election year.”(Paul Richter,“Obama Administration Takes Back Seat On Iran Sanctions,” Los Angeles Times, 2/17/12)

* Despite Obama Administration’s “Vows To Cripple Iran,”“It Is Leaders In Congress And Europe Who Have Seized The Lead In The West’s Long-Running Campaign To Punish Tehran For Its Suspected Nuclear Weapons Program.”“Despite the Obama administration’s vows to cripple Iran with economic sanctions, it is leaders in Congress and Europe who have seized the lead in the West’s long-running campaign to punish Tehran for its suspected nuclear weapons program. In recent months, the toughest moves to deter Iran from pursuing its presumed nuclear ambitions have come from a bipartisan group in Congress and European allies, especially Britain and France. The White House at first resisted these steps before embracing them as inevitable.”(Paul Richter,“Obama Administration Takes Back Seat On Iran Sanctions,” Los Angeles Times, 2/17/12)

The Obama Administration Has Now Granted Waivers To “All Twenty Of Iran’s Major Trading Partners,” Including China, For Their Efforts To Reduce Iranian Oil Imports Ahead Of The Sanctions.“Though economic sanctions still haven’t slowed or stopped Iran’s nuclear drive, the Obama Administration has decided to make them even weaker. The Iran sanctions regime is looking like the U.S. tax code-filled with loopholes. It’s so weak, in fact, that all 20 of Iran’s major trading partners are now exempt from them. We’ve arrived at a kind of voodoo version of sanctions. They look real, insofar as Congress forced them into a bill President Obama had to sign in December. The Administration has spoken incantations about their powers. But if you’re a big oil importer in China, India or 18 other major economies, the sanctions are mostly smoke.”(Editorial,“Obama’s Iran Loopholes,” The Wall Street Journal, 7/2/12)

The Wall Street Journal :“The Current U.S. Approach To Sanctions … Is Destined To Become Increasingly Ineffective Over Time. It Also Doesn’t Help That The Administration Is Waging A Behind-The-Scenes Campaign To Water Down Existing Sanctions.”“All of this means that the current U.S. approach to sanctions, which depends on the ability and willingness of the Administration to go after individual Iranian or foreign companies, is destined to become increasingly ineffective over time. It also doesn’t help that the Administration is waging a behind-the-scenes campaign to water down existing sanctions by granting nearly every available waiver to countries that continue to buy Iranian oil.”(Editorial,“Iran Sanctions Test,” The Wall Street Journal , 7/30/12)

The Washington Post :“The Result Is That President Obama Is Not Even Leading From Behind On Iran; He Is Simply Behind.”“The result is that President Obama is not even leading from behind on Iran; he is simply behind. At the forefront of the Western effort to pressure Tehran is French President Nicolas Sarkozy, who issued a statement Monday calling on the European Union, the United States, Japan, Canada and ‘other willing countries’ to ‘immediately freeze the assets of Iran’s central bank’ and suspend purchases of Iranian oil.”(Editorial,“More Half-Measures From Obama Administration On Iran,” The Washington Post , 11/22/11)

As Romney stated, OBAMA HASN’T BEEN CLEARLY A FRIEND TO OUR ALLIES

Obama Has Struggled To Build “Leader-To-Leader” Diplomacy?

“Obama’s record in leader-to-leader diplomacy is also mixed. He’s built close relationships with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Erdogan, South Korean President Lee Myung-Bak and Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Mevedev when he served as president. But Obama struggled to connect with former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown. And “the tension between Obama and [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu is palpable,” said Crowley, now a professor at George Washington University.”(Josh Gerstein,“World’s Obama Fever Cools,” Politico, 9/21/12)

* Obama Has Not Built Personal Bonds With Other Leaders.

“More than two years into his term, Obama cuts the image of an all-business envoy, seldom going outside normal business hours to turn on the charm with other heads of state. He appears to have built few deep personal bonds with foreign leaders, and his forays into public diplomacy – a burger run last year with Russia’s Dmitry Medvedev and a game of Ping-Pong last month with Britain’s David Cameron – are notable for their rarity.”(Carrie Budoff Brown,“Obama’s No-Schmooze Diplomacy,” Politico , 6/8/11)

* The G-8 Summit In May 2012 Marked The First Time Obama Has Invited Any Foreign Leaders To Camp David.

“Adding to the curious nature of the White House announcement was the fact that Obama rarely spends time at his presidential retreat. And unlike many of his predecessors, Obama has never hosted a world leader at Camp David.”(Julie Pace,“Obama Shifts G-8 From Chicago To Camp David,” The Associated Press, 3/5/12)

Obama’s Lack Of Private Meetings With Key Allies During The U.N. General Assembly Signaled That “Campaigning Is His Imperative.”

“Obama’s activities at the United Nations said plenty, too: There are not many of them. Campaigning is his imperative. He is skipping the private meetings with key allies that a U.S. president typically schedules when the whole international community comes to New York. The president will spend only 24 hours in New York in total this time, and he spent some of it Monday to appear on ‘The View,’ giving a talk show interview intended to sell his election pitch to a big TV audience.”(Ben Feller,“Obama At The UN, In Shadow Of Campaign Politics,” The Associated Press, 9/25/12)

* Both President George W. Bush And Bill Clinton Held Meetings With Foreign Leaders During U.N. Visits In Their Re-Election Years.“Both Presidents George W. Bush in 2004 and Bill Clinton in 1996, though, held a series of meetings with foreign leaders during U.N. visits in their re-election years. The Obama White House opted not to jam in a few and risk offending the allies who were left out, administration officials said.”(Ben Feller,“Obama, In Election Mode, Tightens His UN Diplomacy,” The Associated Press, 9/22/12)

OBAMA HASN’T BEEN CLEAR TO OUR ALLIES Part 2

* Obama Delegated Meetings With World Leaders To Secretary Clinton During “Some Of The Most Pressing Foreign Policy Crises The Administration Has Faced Since Taking Office In 2009.”“That task he delegated to Mrs. Clinton, who churned through the first of dozens of meetings she will have over the next week. They deal with some of the most pressing foreign policy crises the administration has faced since taking office in 2009, like the deadly protests in the Islamic world and the confrontation between Japan and China over a handful of unpopulated islands. Mrs. Clinton met President Asif Ali Zardari of Pakistan (‘It’s been a difficult time for all of us,’ he told her after riots protesting a video trailer that denigrates the Prophet Muhammad and was made in the United States) as well as Mr. Karzai. By the end of a scheduled 12-hour day, she was to have met with President Mohamed Morsi of Egypt. A senior administration official said Mrs. Clinton’s meeting with Mr. Zardari and Pakistan’s foreign minister, Hina Rabbani Khar, represented a ‘re-energized dialogue at the highest levels’– if not the very highest level with Mr. Obama. In between, she held an emotional meeting with President Mohamed Magariaf of Libya, who reiterated his apologies for the Sept. 11 killings of Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans in Benghazi. He noted the counterprotests, held in Benghazi and other Libyan cities on Friday, that expressed support for the United States.”(Helene Cooper and Steven Lee Meyers,“While U.N. Beckons Clinton, Obama Takes In ‘The View,’” THE NEW YORK TIMES, 9/24/12)

Obama And Netanyahu’s Relationship Is An “Odd And Unwelcome Rivalry Among Allies.““Diplomacy is, ultimately, about relationships. Obama and Netanyahu don’t really have one. And that’s created an odd and unwelcome rivalry among allies – a testy liberal-vs.-conservative chess match that mirrors Obama’s contest with Mitt Romney, who has known Netanyahu for years.‘There is a lack of rapport between these two men – they don’t like each other very much. Plus there are serious differences between our interests and Israel’s own security interests,’ said former State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley, who was present for several of Obama’s nine face-to-face meetings with Netanyahu.”(Glenn Thrush,“Benjamin Netanyahu VS. Barack Obama,” POLITICO, 9/13/12)

* Obama Dismissed Netanyahu’s Calls For Stronger Action Against Iran’s Nuclear Program As “NOISE.” CBS’s STEVE KROFT:“You don’t feel any pressure from Prime Minister Netanyahu in the middle of a campaign to try and get you to change your policy and draw a line in the sand? You don’t feel any pressure?” OBAMA:“When it comes to our national security decisions– any pressure that I feel is simply to do what’s right for the American people. And I am going to block out– any noise that’s out there.”(CBS’s “60 MINUTES,” 9/23/12)

Central America Has Been “Mostly Ignored In Washington.”

“Two elections in Central America have underlined the growing problems in a region that is mostly ignored in Washington. On Sunday former general Otto Perez won Guatemala’s presidential election with a slogan long favored by Latin American authoritarians:‘mano dura,’ or iron hand, which he promises to apply to the Mexican drug traffickers and criminal gangs that have virtually taken over the country and sent the murder rate soaring. As with Honduras and El Salvador, Guatemala is in danger of being overwhelmed by the drug trade and the violence it engenders. But Mr. Perez’s promises to cut the crime rate in half are unlikely to be fulfilled by his plan to expand and deploy the army.”(Editorial,“Central American Elections Highlight U.S. Neglect Of The Region,” THE WASHINGTON POST , 11/8/11)

Obama Said He Would Not Consider Egypt An Ally BUT GETS CORRECTED BY THE STATE DEPARTMENT

*“Technically, Egypt Was Designated As A Major Non-NATO Ally In 1989.”“That comment had Egypt watchers scratching their heads, especially since technically, Egypt was designated as a Major Non-NATO Ally in 1989 when Congress first passed the law creating that status, which gives them special privileges in cooperating with the United States, especially in the security and technology arenas.”(Josh Rogin,“White House Clarifies Obama’s Statement That Egypt Is Not An ‘Ally,’” Foreign Policy’s The Cable , 9/13/12)

* Egypt Is Still Listed As A Major Non-NATO U.S. Ally.“Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Saturday formally designated Afghanistan a ‘major non-NATO ally,’ setting the stage for tighter military cooperation even as international troops are on a path to withdraw from the war-torn country by the end of 2014.… The list of major non-NATO allies includes Argentina, Australia, Bahrain, Egypt, Israel, Japan, Jordan, Kuwait, Morocco, New Zealand, Pakistan, the Philippines, South Korea and Thailand.”(Olivier Knox,“U.S. Anoints Afghanistan A ‘Major Non-NATO Ally’,” Yahoo!

BARACK IS AN EMPTY CHAIR AS CLINT EASTWOOD APTLY COINED HIM. HE IS THE WORST NATIONAL SECURITY THREAT TO AMERICA AND AMERICANS.

Barack's last and final debate contained the MOST egregarious lies of all three debates. He started with the lie that he is Israel's BESTEST BUDDY ON EARTH, and he ended with the lie that he would WORK HARD EVERY DAY to help Americans. His final words were basically: I will continue to create internal warfare among rich and poor Americans by taxing them to death, and that my friends, is my foreign policy address to you all.

It's quite obvious that Barack Obama's foreign policy as the foreigner that he is to our country, is to destroy America. He is not of nor from America. As Clint Eastwood said, Obama is the greatest HOAX ON AMERICA.

Bravo Mitt Romney and Clint Eastwood for revealing Obama to us.

SEND THESE TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW, ASK THEM TO DO SAME.

WE MUST GET A GOP SENATE MAJORITY AND WIN BY A LANDSLIDE TO PREVAIL AGAINST DEMOCRAT FRAUD NOV. 6! THANK YOU

Romney's Ongoing Lie #1
Romney: And then the president began what I’ve called an apology tour of going to — to various nations in the Middle East and — and criticizing America. I think they looked at that and saw weakness.… And I think that when the president said he was going to create daylight between ourselves and Israel that they noticed that as well.
Obama retorted that “[n]othing Gov. Romney just said is true, starting with this notion of me apologizing. This has been probably the biggest whopper that’s been told during the course of this campaign, and every fact-checker and every reporter that’s looked at it … has said this is not true.”
Obama is certainly right about the assessment of fact-checkers, including FactCheck.org . We pored over the speeches that Romney cited in his book “No Apology” to back up his claim that Obama went on an “apology tour,” and we concluded that “we didn’t see that any of them rise to the level of an actual apology.” Our fact-checking colleagues at PolitiFact and the Washington Post Fact Checker reached the same conclusion: Obama never apologized.
During the debate, Romney defended his “apology” claim:
Romney: Mr. President, the reason I call it an apology tour is because you went to the Middle East and you flew to Egypt and to Saudi Arabia and to Turkey and Iraq. And, by the way, you skipped Israel, our closest friend in the region, but you went to the other nations. And by the way, they noticed that you skipped Israel. And then in those nations and on Arabic TV you said that America had been dismissive and derisive. You said that on occasion America had dictated to other nations. Mr. President, America has not dictated to other nations. We have freed other nations from dictators.
Obama’s “dismissive” and “derisive” comments were not actually made in the Middle East, as Romney said, but rather during a speech Obama gave in Strasbourg, France, in April 2009.
Obama spoke about tensions between the U.S. and the Muslim world, and placed blame on both sides. And then he called for a “new beginning.” That’s not an apology.
