But Obama is going before the UN to condemn the Mohammad film maker and HE doesn't take responsibility for the deaths of our ambassador and 3 other Americans even though it happened on 9/11 anniversary and there was no beefed up security in an UNstable arab nation...oh, that's right it's Bush's fault. That's the refrain from a pathetic president who assumes no blame for anything.

We can't afford another 4 years of this sociopath.
What a self centered, ego driven person. He views himself as godlike, as he can do no wrong. It's everybody else's fault.

and when cornered, he lies. Latest example: claiming he didn't know what the total debt of the USA was while on the Letterman show.

Yes - we are fully aware that the GOPTEA RINOs and the 1% are doing all they can to tank the economy just to win an election.

By November here is what the American people will remember after the G-roup O-f P-olitical T-erroristic E-uropean A-merican birthers took over the house.

1) They shifted focus from jobs and the economy to defending DOMA, looking for birth certificates, and whining about teleprompters.

2) They almost pushed us into a government shutdown.

3) They pushed us into a credit downgrade.

4) They fought to kill medicare and medicaid.

5) They held our payroll tax cuts hostage for a pipeline.

6) The Republican Death Panel are fighting hard to take away healthcare for the working middle class.

8) They believe the unemployed feel like they're victims who want to depend on government.

7) But they sure fought vehemently for those top 1% wealthy people.

All at the expense of the economy and the middle and working class. The people who will be most hurt by GOPTEA obstructionism are the working middle class. The rich 1% would hardly notice a dent. Which is why Rich Money and Boehnor could care less.

The American people are wising up to the Republican RINOs/TEA Party. This group will intentionally sabotage things if things don't go their way....at the expense of the working middle class.

Two years was enough and come November the American people are ready to fire Speaker Boehnor, Cantor, and Grover Norquist!

the reason they voted it down is because there are alreay numerous jobs programs for Veterans that have no measurable results. A better economy would provide JOBS FOR ALL, including Veterans!!!

speaking of "shifting focus" look how much focus the MSM has given the TERRORIST ATTACKS on our embassies and that fact that it WAS PLANNED FOR 9/11. how many days did it take for the Obama administration to ADMIT THAT???? No, Vegas was more important for "The One." as was appearing on Letterman. The media paid more attention to Romney smears than to the fact that there was jiihad against American interests, it was planned and Americans were killed.

Republican RINOs are always quick to send our brave soldiers oversas to fight their wars but slow to give them the assistance they need when they return. Even now they want to send more troops overseas to protect our embassies but failed to pass a jobs bill for our veterans.

rethugs announced early on that their only goal is to defeat obama the country be damned! They would rather destroy the country for their vile social Darwinist ideology! According to mittwit veterans are 'dependent' and moochers. Since most rethugs have never served it should come as no surprise that they are willing to ignore the needs of veterans. mittwit thought it was more important to serve his cult than his country!

Does Obama EVER take responsibility for ANYTHING that he is in charge of?? It is just sickening how he NEVER accepts responsibility for all of the horrible crap that HE and Pelosi/Reid created! Does he not realize that he had full control of the House and Senate for TWO FULL YEARS!?! Shame on any U.S. citizen who votes for him again. Unfortunately, he cheating Dems will have illegals and dead people voting for Hussein. This country has gone to Hell (literally) in the past 4 years. No more excuses, Hussein!!!

Furthermore, as even some of the Liberal, biased media has reported: Romney is 100% correct that 47% of the U.S. does not pay taxes and WILL vote for hussein, in order to keep their freebies coming. Well, I, for one, and sick and tired at working 18 hours/day so that I can support my family. I refuse to make other taxpayers support me. Individual responsibility is what is lacking in Hussein's socialist agenda. I heard he already has his huge Hawaiian retirement estate picked out for Jan. 2013, so he may even be having some doubts as to how long he can fool enough people to keep him office.

Hey dumba$$~ we won't NEED a jobs bill if the Muslim attack and kill our people! I can't stand how the Dumbocraps try so hard to block our veterans from voting, and treat them like crap. Maybe they shouldn't protect you after all. Also, why didn't Hussein pass his so-called, fake jobs bill when he had full control of the Congress for two long years? Did you ever think that HIS ideas are not beneficial to our country? Isn't that why we have a Congress... to pass what's best for a majority of Americans? Hussein sees it as he's the boss and he has total and complete say over this country. Well, that's what happens in a dictatorship. Maybe he should move back to his birthland and become the supreme ruler there! They'd welcome him with open arms!

Please post a credible source that says that Romney called veterans moochers. That sounds more like an Obama comment. Did you get that from Chris Matthews? I'll be waiting for your source. Otherwise, let me fill you in on Hussein's anti-American activities...too many to name on one forum.
