The dems are no better. Cox Enterprises, a bastion of liberal thought and a staunch supporter of democrat candidates has thousands of employees in India and other places. The issue just isn't as simple as everyone wants to make it. And: http://www.salon.c om/2012/05/21/demo crats_and_bain_2/ Quote: Executives at Romney's old private-equity firm have donated more to the Democratic Party than the GOP. Why? We all know that Bain Capital, Mitt Romney’s former firm, is the paragon of capitalist evil, destroying the middle class in order to enrich greedy vulture oligarchs. We also all know that the Democratic Party is the defender of the middle class and the bold adversary of corporate pillaging. That’s why these facts generate so much cognitive dissonance: Democrats have accepted more political donations than Republicans from executives at Bain Capital, complicating the left’s plan to attack Mitt Romney for his record at the private-equity firm. During the last three election cycles, Bain employees have given Democratic candidates and party committees more than $1.2 million. The vast majority of that sum came from senior executives. Republican candidates and party committees raised over $480,000 from senior Bain executives during that time period. Why would these cunning Master of the Universe villains want so robustly to fund a party that is so adverse to their interests? The only coherent answer is that the party which they’re funding is anything but adverse to their interests. End Quote (Sep 7, 2012 | post #18131)
Is that the way you talk to all women (no wonder you haven't gotten laid in years), including your mommy who does so much for you, to include allowing you to live rent free in her basement? Hmmm??? Learn some respect. Do you text your mommy from the basement or just yell upstairs when you need something? You're a sorry excuse for a "man" (and those quotes are there for a reason).

Romney at least provided one year of tax returns. Obama hasn't provided even one year (not even HALF of one year) of school records. Where are Obama's school records? I'm sure an agreement could be worked out if Obama shows one year of school records to agree that they both show several years of records -- Romney is tax records and Obama his school records. Want to bet who wouldn't be up for that?! LMAO! (Sep 7, 2012 | post #18097)
The point is, only a loser would do those things. If the shoe fits... (Sep 7, 2012 | post #18093)
Don't forget to put your tinfoil hat on. Did you buy enough tinfoil to finish wallpapering your walls? Have you been abducted and anal probed? It would sure seem so! (Sep 7, 2012 | post #18089)
That would be something you'd waste money on. Certainly no one is *giving* you their dirty underwear, so you're relegated to buying it. I'm sure you pay for sex, too. (Sep 7, 2012 | post #18071)

And Democrats benefitted from Executives at Bain more so than Republicans...in fact, more than double the amount: http://www.salon.c om/2012/05/21/demo crats_and_bain_2/ Quote: Executives at Romney's old private-equity firm have donated more to the Democratic Party than the GOP.

If your obvious cluelessness weren't so sad, it'd be funny. Not everyone receiving SSI (which is their right if they paid into it) is living in section 8 housing. Many people were responsible an saved and/or worked a long time for a company that provided retirement benefits (or both). Responsibility, especially personal responsibility, is somethng liberals like you seem to know nothing about. You are all worried about what the next guy is doing and if he's making more than you and why his salary (from his hard work) is not being shared with you. Obama is only trying to move the country forward into the form of HUGE government and a socialist system. Those of you who cannot see that are blind. (Sep 7, 2012 | post #18027)
You are so far out of touch with reality if it weren't so sad, it'd be funny. Everyone on SSI is not living in section 8 housing. Everyone calling Obama a "black" president seems to forget his "white" side. Obama is the one moving us towards HUGE government and into socialism...or at least, he's trying to. Some of you are just too clueless to see it. (Sep 7, 2012 | post #18022)
Please provide your link to the $7-trillion figure. http://www.investo rplace.com/2012/05 /2008-tarp-funds-w here-are-they-now/ March 23, 2012 Quote: The Troubled Asset Relief Program was labeled a handout to help banks get only bigger at a time when the financial sector should have been shrinking. Free-market proponents claimed it was government interference in the worst way. Voters felt it was more proof that politicians were more interested in doing favors for rich friends than spending taxpayer funds responsibly. Even some banks chafed at the fact they had to take the funds — even if they didn’t want or need them. It was legislation that seemingly pleased no one. But nearly four years later, almost everyone agrees things would have been significantly worse without TARP. Imperfect as it was, the bailout did its job and prevented a systemic breakdown of the global financial system. Not as Big as Planned: The original financial crisis agreement authorized expenditures of $700 billion, in part because the scope of the bank bailout was difficult to assess in the chaos of 2008. As the dust has settled, only $470.12 billion has been distributed thus far (including for automaker bailouts); Dodd-Frank legislation ensured the limit was reduced so Congress or the Treasury couldn’t play with that original amount.

LMAO! Just some facts about Mitt Romney that we will not hear about from the media! Mitt Romney: After going to both Harvard Business School and Harvard Law School simultaneously, he passed the Michigan bar, but never worked as an attorney. As a venture-capitalist , Romney's first major business deal involved investing in a start-up office supply company with one store in Massachusetts that sold office supplies. That company, called Staples, now has over 2,000 stores and employs over 90,000 people. Romney or his company Bain Capital (using what became known as the "Bain Way") would go on to perform the same kinds of business miracles again and again, with companies like Domino's, Sealy, Brookstone,Weather Channel, Burger King, Warner Music Group, Dollarama, Home Depot Supply, and many others. Got your calculators handy? Let's recap. Volunteer campaign worker for his dad's gubernatorial campaign 1 year. Unpaid intern in Governor's office 8 years. Mormon missionary in Paris 2 years. Unpaid bishop and state president for his church 10 years. No salary as president of the Olympics 3 years. No salary as MA governor 4 years. That's a grand total of 28 years of unpaid service to his country, his community and his church. Why? Because that's the kind of man Mitt Romney is! And in 2011 Mitt Romney gave over $4 million to charity, almost 19% of his income....Obama gave 1% Joe Biden gave $300 or .0013% This is real character vs....well you know what! Romney may not be the best representative the Republicans could have selected. At least I know what religion he is, and that he won't desecrate the flag, bow down to foreign powers, or squander my money on vacations. I know he has the ability to turn this financial debacle that the "Spending President" has gotten us into. We didn't know that when Obama said he'd give us change, he meant nickels and dimes, and he would get the big bucks. We won't like all the things necessary to recover from this debt, but someone with Romney's background can do it. But, on the minus side, He never was a "Community Organizer", never took drugs or smoked pot. Never got drunk. Did not associate with communists or terrorists. Nor did he attend a church whose pastor called for God to damn the United States . (Sep 7, 2012 | post #17991)
Boy are you misinformed. The border is not invisible. It exists. And illegals cannot "easily" cross the border, not to mention that it is ILLEGAL to do so. Anyone crossing the border without the proper paperwork is committing a federal misdemeanor. Therefore, they should be respectful of our laws, and thus they wouldn't be here to pop out anchors or to get benefits on behaf of those anchors. They cannot get amnesty legally. What are you, brain dead? Never mind, that would imply you had a brain to begin with. Amnesty is not legal, as the President giving amnesty means he is NOT FOLLOWING FEDERAL LAW -- he is breaking the law. He is presently being sued by ICE for insisting they ignore federal law. That doesn't make it legal, it merely means the President is not following federal law and it's not legal for him to circumvent laws, anymore than it's legal for anyone else to do it. It is not even legal for illegal aliens (operative word: illegal) to be here, therefore they have no business protesting in our streets. Anyone who protests the fact that they broke the law and should be allowed to get away with it is just ignorant and self-serving. This country is not reqired to take in the world's unwashed. You're the one that needs to get over it, as it just plain isn't legal for illegal aliens to be here...so says our federal statutes. We have enough of our own homegrown poor and idiots to take care of. We have no need to import more from other countries, much less illegally so. Charity begins at home. (Sep 7, 2012 | post #27)
Gary Gensler Barak Obama's head of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission worked with Alan Greenspan and Senator Phil Gramm to exempt credit default swaps from regulation while president Clinton was in the White House. This lead to the collapse of AIG and has resulted in the largest taxpayer bailout in History. . Geithner should resign or be removed . . he is a Goldman Sachs crook who lied and did all that he could to allow TARP money to go to Goldman Sachs who were paid PAR on their contracts. . not one penny discounted. . http://www.huffing tonpost.com/2009/1 1/16/aig-bailout-g overnment-ov_n_359 919.html?ref=fb &src=sp (Sep 7, 2012 | post #17971)
