Can you say desperate? When they cannot find anything to say in defense of their failed leadership they correct your spelling etc. Sometimes when I am bored I deliberately misspell a word so I can vision them jumping up, and down like monkeys in a cage. So funny.

You really need to stop parroting other's thoughts and start thinkking for yourself. it is hard at first, and you will make mistakes but soon you might actually be able to see throught the bullshit kind of posts you just parroted.
At least try, it is your civic duty as a US citizen.

Thanks troll for the confirmation. Voting up yourself is really frosting on the cake. Pitiful.

And trying to use logic with the illiterate and cognition deprived is almost always fruitless.
It would demonstrate a rogue action on the part of the poor victim. Much like the Administration's assertion "Fast and Furious" was the activity of a rogue office, until the emails came out implicating high levels of DOJ.
Try that reading thing. It may help with your grammar, spelling and usage. It may even help with your thought process. I doubt it, but I will keep my fingers crossed for you.
And only people as stupid as you would have bought into that rouge action bit. No 'attorney grade'(still haven't explained what that meaningless term is supposed to suggest) memo would take responsibility from the CINC in taken out a civilian across the planet with an armed team of people that have trained fro that particualr mission for months.

you are a tool that people use like a cheap screwdriver as a chisel, they pound on it till it breaks and then they throw it away.

Still only have typos as your defense, but not logic or independent thought...

tool.

You buy into what others way because it is what you want t hear, but h=you are still unable to explain how that supposed memo would give the CINC removeal from resposibility for a raid only the President could order...

people rely on your gullibility and stupidity to repeat this shit and they use you like a cheap wh*ore, but they don't even leave a twenty on the ally curb for you, they just leave you to try and defend their faulty logic with your pathetic little mind that is not up to the task .

Typos? Yeah, right. Whatever you say, troll. One knows the desperation of the other side when the use of profanity is engaged. It's a primary rule of debate, but then again, that may not have been offered at special ed schools.

You may believe the CINC is a lucid, rational, honorable man, incapable of not owning to responsibility blaming others. I, however, do not. I believe he blames anyone for anything that goes wrong, starting with his failed policies. I believe he would try anything in the world to relieve himself of blame, including a failed mission.

We will have to agree to disagree.

BTW, what's a "removeal".

Spell check. Embrace it. It's a nuisance for me because it often capitalizes and changes words not in the iPad dictionary, but in your case, and for those reading your work, it would be a godsend, IMHO.

Seems to me that some simple fact checking by the RMoney/Ryan team would have come up with this simple fact about the Generl Motors plant.
Perhaps the RMoney/Ryan team are so desperate that they are throwing any ol' fantasy/misfact/fiction/smear to see what sticks.
Thanks to the more relevant media and the computer we can check thse slurs out and find out time lines and the truth.

Niall Ferguson: Obama’s Gotta Go
Aug 19, 2012 1:00 AM EDT

Why does Paul Ryan scare the president so much? Because Obama has broken his promises, and it’s clear that the GOP ticket’s path to prosperity is our only hope.

I was a good loser four years ago.“In the grand scheme of history,” I wrote the day after Barack Obama’s election as president,“four decades is not an especially long time. Yet in that brief period America has gone from the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. to the apotheosis of Barack Obama. You would not be human if you failed to acknowledge this as a cause for great rejoicing.”
Despite having been—full disclosure—an adviser to John McCain, I acknowledged his opponent’s remarkable qualities: his soaring oratory, his cool, hard-to-ruffle temperament, and his near faultless campaign organization.

Yet the question confronting the country nearly four years later is not who was the better candidate four years ago. It is whether the winner has delivered on his promises. And the sad truth is that he has not.

In his inaugural address, Obama promised “not only to create new jobs, but to lay a new foundation for growth.” He promised to “build the roads and bridges, the electric grids, and digital lines that feed our commerce and bind us together.” He promised to “restore science to its rightful place and wield technology’s wonders to raise health care’s quality and lower its cost.” And he promised to “transform our schools and colleges and universities to meet the demands of a new age.” Unfortunately the president’s scorecard on every single one of those bold pledges is pitiful.

• Poll: 40 percent of eligible voters unlikely to vote, a group Obama camp needs to reach
AP

A recent poll by Suffolk University found roughly 40 percent of America’s eligible voters said they’ll probably sit out the November election.
Republicans are more energized than liberals. Liberals that in 08 were energized to a rate of 61 now have dropped to 38%.........republicans now hold the 61% which spells trouble for Obama.

Poll: Not better off now than in 2008...of 12 swing states polled, 56% say they and their families are not better off.

Go ahead demmiies, you haven't let Obama down YET.
It just go to show you love Obama, than you do the people who makes up this country. Sad, when ONE

When the people tells us, He has unionized the
health care program, and the people says, thats
called COMMUNISM: " n.gov ernment controlling all
production and consumption"! Go ahead you can't
see the forest for the trees!
When did you loose all of your senses ie. intelligence.....
I can't believe we have lost our once great country
by the very citizens our boys died for.....
Stupity has brought many a country to its knees..
who know it would be our own that does it.

When its gone, you won't ever get it back... YOU
have one last chance, we will know how you vote

Where is it that Obama took credit?

Teabaggers and FOX have selective reasoning disorder.

He made decisions and gave orders.
Who would you have do that?

He didn't take credit, he gave credit to the men who carried out the mission.

Tonight, we give thanks to the countless intelligence and counterterrorism professionals who've worked tirelessly to achieve this outcome.

Just ignore that part.

If the mission had failed and the team was killed, tebaggers heads would have exploded.

Who would I have do what? Oh, you mean shut the f*ck up for just a few days so we could act on the intelligence bonanza found in Osama's compound? Yes, I would have had Obama do that. You mean keep the identity of the team that did it secret? Yes, I'd have had him do that. You mean quit bragging for political gain and instead behave like a mature adult? Yes, one more thing he could have done.

But he did NONE of those things. You can be guaranteed the military asked him to, but he told the to f*ck off because this political hay needed to be harvested immediately.

The military did their part. They asked Obama to do his and he totally screwed it up, running off like a little kid to tell his pals all about his big adventure. People will die because we have an immature, selfish idiot for our Commander-in-Chief. That poor, stupid SOB couldn't wait even one goddamned day!
