Romney’s Character Comes To Light, And It’s Dark Indeed

Romney’s Character Comes To Light, And It’s Dark Indeed

Character is a combination of traits that etch the outlines of a life, governing moral choices and infusing personal and professional conduct. It’s an elusive thing, easily cloaked or submerged by the theatrics of a presidential campaign, but unexpected moments can sometimes reveal the fibers from which it is woven.

Last week, Mitt Romney had just such a moment. His rash, crass and blatantly dishonest response to violent protests in Libya and Egypt exposed a feckless and contemptible character that places political advantage above patriotism and values winning at any cost over courage, honor and truth.

As mobs attacked U.S. embassies in the Middle East, Romney rushed to use the moment as a cudgel against his rival, President Obama. He might have waited to find out whether any diplomats had been injured or Marines attacked. He did not. He might have waited until a day of mourning in commemoration of national tragedy — 9/11 — was over. He did not.

Instead, as violence escalated and lives hung in the balance, Romney jarringly condemned the president, claiming that “the administration’s first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks.” Later, he stood by that lie, contending that Obama coddles and apologizes to the nation’s enemies. His shamelessness overshadowed his belated attempts to acknowledge the deaths of four courageous Americans — including Christopher Stevens, U.S. ambassador to Libya — who gave their lives in service to their country.

In a closely fought political campaign, candidates often exaggerate their rivals’ shortcomings, blame them for circumstances beyond their control and accuse them of recklessness or timidity (or both). That’s politics.

Indeed, by the end of the week, some leading Republicans were joining the criticism of the president’s foreign policy, hoping to help extricate the GOP nominee from the hole he’d dug for himself. John McCain, for example, claimed the Middle East protests — perhaps spurred by a despicable U.S.-made Web video slandering Islam’s founding prophet — could be attributed to “American weakness and the president’s inability to lead.”

  1. This man is sitting back having a bundle of laughs as did this filmmaker. That is one characteristic comparision that these two ants have that its not strictly policital…….strictly anti-american. people will die for what they believe in and as for money it cant buy a purple heart.

  2. The character of a person is forged by his life experiences and values. Romney’s record, from his experiences at Bain to the way he has conducted himself during this presidential campaign suggest that the only thing that matters to him is Mitt Romney..

      • Romney could have created jobs when he worked his whammey with Bain. Since he didn’t we can assume that he is insincere when it comes to creating jobs. Bain is not written in business journals nor textbooks as a company noteworthy of accomplishing anything such as Steve Jobs or Bill Gates. These men created jobs and are still doing so in big lots. Romeny is a fraudster let’s face it we do not need him bankrupting our country. We do not have any money for a war unless he is going to clean out his offshore bank accounts and fund the war? The private sector is the entity to create jobs–and President Obama did his best to give private sectors a chance and those who received the funds failed–which tells the United States one thing and one thing only–we’d better start more innovation and develop more scientists who can come with some saleable ideas which will be profitable and create large slots of job.

      • Possibly not. Good point. I can only speak for myself, but there are things I’ve done I wish I hadn’t.

        Your experience may be different.

        I’m not sure if i would have the presence of mind to kill thousands of people by drone. Even after I knew that those drones often killed innocent children, women, men, brothers, sisters, dads. On the plus side, drones almost never kill dogs.

        I’m not sure I could have the gumption and mendacious state of mind required to promise and sign IN PUBLIC a document saying I’d close Guantanamo and then NOT do it.

        I’m pretty sure I couldn’t sign a sequestration bill sure to get several tens of thousands if not hundreds of thousands Americans laid off.

        It’s not the person… the office is set up attract psycho paths.

        Let’s get out there on the second tues in Nov and do something denied to several billion people and vote.

      • Fern you have said it all. Salafis may not want to recall some of the things that he’s done — and matter-of-fact, some of the things that I have done, still haunt me to this day. However, I am not exposing myself and running for the President because I know my flaws and character makes me unfit for the job and so should Romeny know the very same thing.

    • Excuse me the only thing that matters to Mitt is Money and Mitt. The Money is first then Mitt second. If you have money you can buy people, sell people and dish out to the lowly ones whatever you want to dish out and they will lap it up. The Bible tells us that Esau was bought for a morsel of bread and some soup.

  3. Totally agree with this article. Romney looks especially ill at ease trying to feign sincerity or empathy. Amazing that he is so narcissist that the lies he speaks and the opposing views he offers to placate the audience he is speaking slides off his oily backside so easily, with no seeming remorse for the lack of forethought, nor potential consequences, even to himself later.
    Either he is so self delusional that he borders on being socio-pathic, or he is so shallow and cares very little for the audiences he speaks to. Or, he really is as thick as a warped plank.

    None of these qualities are desirable for a Presidential candidate. And having Palin, Inghram, Kristol, Limbaugh as the champions of his (non) policy credentials. Really?

    • The Man Is A Sociopath!! Romney Will Do Anything To Get What He Wants Even If It Mean To Sellout His Country And The People Who Live Here!!! Period!! The Man Has Been Doing Low Life Things All His Life He Not About To Change Now!!

      • Do you mean like associating with known terrorists, enthusiastically taking cocaine, weed, and drinking heavily, belonging to a church whose pastor in Anti-American & Anti-White, sealing ALL his records the FIRST day he was sworn in as President, Unconstitutionally bypassing Congress on policies and even National Defense and seeking authority from the U.N., & not our own Government?
        If this is the type of “leader” you like for OUR country, we are ALL in deep trouble.

        • So tell us Plznnn, your strategy for dealing with a Republican congress whose very first item on their agenda was not to work for the good of the people that elected them but rather to see to it that above all else the newly elected president Barrak Obama, would be a one term president!!

          This before they even said Welcome to the White House! It amazing that they could vote 37 times to repeal Obama Care but could not manage to bring to the floor a jobs bill that would put thousands of out of work Americans back to work. To work rebuilding and repairing the infrastructure of our country!

          Yet these are the elected leaders who profess to care about the middle class and putting people back to work! No! It would interfere with their openly admitted first priority, not to work or support the newly elected president in an effort to make him look bad. There by increasing their odds at grabbing power.

          This at the expense of every out of work American who cannot find a job, who struggles to put food on the table for their family, and who may be in jeopardy of loosing the only real investment they have, their house!!
          These are the people you would rather have lead this country?

          These people, the very same people (Republicans) who stood and gave a standing ovation when the Olympic Committee did not award the Olympics to the United States. A standing ovation for the whole world to witness on National TV. Think of the jobs? Think of the boost to the economy! What about just good old American Patriotism!

          You would rather our country be put in the hands of such self-serving hateful socio- paths?

          These are the real terrerists! The real anti-Americans! Whats worse is that they don’t care who knows it, who of their fellow Americans are hurt in the process, or the image it projects around the world!

          If this is the America you would rather live in, the kind of people you would want to lead our his country, God help us…

          • “So tell us Plznnn, your strategy for dealing with a Republican congress whose very first item on their agenda was not to work for the good of the people that elected them but rather to see to it that above all else the newly elected president Barrak Obama, would be a one term president!! ”

            “dealing with a Republican congress whose very first item on their agenda was:

            1) “not to work for the good of the people that elected them”

            but rather to

            2) “see to it that above all else the newly elected president Barrak Obama, would be a one term president!!”

            How did you discern this? Do you have any memos or direct quotes? These sound like interpretations, meaning that you could be wrong. In fact what you say is implausible.

            Wait, do YOU get to define what “the good of the people” is? What is your definition? What is your qualification for making this judgment that you present as objective fact? What if the good of the people is actually best served by replacing the incumbent president? If that is the case, then your item number 2 disproves your claim about item number 1.

            There are very intelligent people who understand that the government is not your rich uncle of last resort. Socialist ideals have been creeping in to government policy for a long time. This is acceptable when we reach consensus. But there is no right for you to demand that the government meets your fantasy for protecting every risk in life, creating job opportunities and so forth especially when it risks the future solvency of said government. Do you understand that there are finite limits? Making stupid claims about how the 1% stole the wealth is just a fantasy to justify ignoring the true facts; the macroeconomics driving your success or failure as an individual and the collective success of the nation or any subclass is far too complex for you to understand well enough for you to get upset and make such stupid accusations.

            You probably could understand it if you were motivated to, but your motivation is to whine and bitch about classes of enemies invented by classes of victims. You are also a tyrant of simplicity. This is the universal sin of those arguing for more socialism at the same time they want to subsidize the world “green movement” all without doing ANY study of costs and therefore calculating in any way the possibility of success or failure. What would happen to the global green movement if you succeed in bankrupting the US government? Then we have zero influence on it. Better to lead from strength in measured objectives calculated for long-term success. Notice the word “calculated.” You need to make plans to succeed and nearly anything involving more than one person. Failure to plan is planning to fail, and virtually every “plan” published from the Democratic Party is a plan to get elected based on emotionally-derived support from constituents who have no idea what planning or accounting is. If they don’t get what they want, they are sure the rich people stole it from their mailbox, where the checks are supposed to arrive in time to guarantee their ongoing happiness.

            This is not a nation of equality in success, but a nation of equal opportunity. Equality in success means we all lose.

            Study the history of the USSR from serious historians. Ignore Colombia, Berkeley and the like.

        • If by associating with terrorists, you mean bringing them to justice (Bin Laden!), then there may be a shred of truth in your post. Your boy Bush was also a heavy drinker and admitted coke user, but I’m sure we will never hear you criticize good ol’ W. And then there is the contradiction with your ilk simultaneously claiming Obama is a secret Muslim (Muslims are highly opposed to imbibing alcohol), but he also attended the Christian church of a supposedly unAmerican angry black preacher, called unAmerican by the likes of you because he stands opposed to your opinions. Which is it, you can only pick one – secret Muslim or unAmerican Christian? Whatever lie anyone like you is dumb enough to believe I suppose. By the way, we see through your tactics of trying to change the subject with lies rather than discuss Romney’s lack of character or the devastation his recycled, repackaged, failed Bush policies would cause to our great nation. Then again, by the lies you espouse, I guess you have no problem electing a liar. You fail to address any of the problems with Romney’s policies, only help to obfuscate his true agenda by spreading lies about a decent President who will do more to help the downtrodden in our country rather than further empower and enrich your greedy masters. You are either a spreader of false propaganda (aware what you spout are lies), or an ignorant victim of the Republican propaganda campaign that feeds on racism and hatred, but either way you are supporting (knowingly or unknowingly) the movement to transform our country from a democracy to a plutocracy. That makes YOU unAmerican!

          • “If by associating with terrorists, you mean bringing them to justice (Bin Laden!)”

            Not OBL, the Muslim Brotherhood. What do you know about the MB? Little to nothing I suppose of you think that OBL represents the only terror threat. And then there is the appeasement of Iran too, so he’s told the Sunni and Shia world to go ahead and ignore any sense of Western justice we might wish to enforce domestically or among our allies.

            “Bush was also a heavy drinker and admitted coke user”


            “And then there is the contradiction with your ilk simultaneously claiming Obama is a secret Muslim (Muslims are highly opposed to imbibing alcohol), but he also attended the Christian church of a supposedly unAmerican angry black preacher, called unAmerican by the likes of you because he stands opposed to your opinions. Which is it, you can only pick one – secret Muslim or unAmerican Christian?”

            Your confusion is used to attack others who apparently are a lot more educated than you are.

            Obama is technically a Muslim and a Christian according to the respective doctrines of each ideology. Furthermore, there is no contradiction arising from Obama’s church attendance.

            The “Trinity Church” under Jeremiah Wright from 1972 through 2008 was and remains a “church” of alternative ideology. One allegation is that Wright “converted” to Islam due to the conflict with homosexuality in Islam. Christianity might have factions who rebuke open homosexuality, but there is no history of Christians breaking the law to attack homosexuals, and many factions in fact openly support homosexuals. Homosexuality is not the salient point other than providing a motive to claim conversion. Obama’s “conversion” was apparently motivated by politics due to homosexual behaviors and the fact that Christian politicians are typically more successful in the West.

            But wait, how could these people truly believe in Islam and then “convert?” Islam claims to be the only “true” religion, and furthermore claims to be a “correction” of the corrupted religions of Judaism and Christianity. According to Mohammed, Jews were once “Muslims” until they rejected Christ and Christians were once “Muslims” until they rejected Mohammed. Therefore, any Muslim can claim to be a “true Christian” or “true Jew” without feeling any contradiction. We can prove for example that no Jew of Christian author, scribe or prophet ever heard of any of Mohammed’s claims, and evidences points strongly to the theory that Mohammed imagined the entire new religion.

            There are more contradictions, but blame Islam, not those who try to educate those about what it teaches. In addition to contradictions, there are also doctrines that promote deception when it is deemed advantageous for the spread of Islam. This is why operatives from the Muslim Brotherhood can marry outside of Sharia law without any criticism whatsoever. Even without this nonsense about who the “true Christian” are, Obama could be in theory posing as a Christian in order to gain political power.

            Are there silly claims about Obama? Of course. The issues are so grave that political rhetoric has to be excused by reasonable people. When anyone empowers the most dangerous Islamic supremacist groups, even without the sketchy history of Obama, one can understand the accusation that such a person would be a “secret Muslim” rhetorically if not literally.

            If you can’t understand these nuanced positions, then you are simply just another uneducated dupe. I suppose you will be aligned with those who claim the USSR never posed any threat to the West and that the Cold War was just a big misunderstanding, or even the fault of the “belligerent West.”

            Here is a clue tying all of this together: Where do you suppose the Islamic supremacists got the rhetoric about “colonialism?” The only victims of colonialism in all of history in Islamic nations were non-Muslims and minority Muslim factions.

            But you know all of this and are fully prepared to lecture those you look down upon? Teach on. Let’s hear your answers smart boy.

            “The essence of tyranny is the denial of complexity,” making you a tyrant.

          • You make a lot of poor assumptions Chris, like thinking that you’re more educated than me, or thinking that Bin Laden is the only terrorist I know of because he is the only one I mentioned in a short comment post. Did I say that Bin Laden is the only terrorist threat? Oh, I didn’t? OK, then that makes you sound pretty lame right from the start. The point of mentioning Bin Laden in my reply was to point out how stupid it is to accuse Obama of associating with terrorists when he actually has helped to bring about the demise of their most beloved leader. Yes there are other terrorist groups out there, you must be very educated to know such things! Bah! Sounding like Michelle Bachman, trying to tie Obama to the Muslim Brotherhood. I’m not going to bother reading the rest of your lengthy BS post because 1) right from the onset you have proven you have no credibility, and 2) I’m busy watching the Niners wipe the floor with the Lions. You get a few minutes of my time during halftime commercials, that’s all you are worth.

            Complicating one refuted lie with a whole bunch more obfuscating lies does not make you seem educated or enlightened. I do not deny complexity, I deny your credibility. It really hurts that some right-wing nut job thinks I’m a tyrant. Drying my eyes right now. From laughing, not crying. Because the convoluted logic and the weak accusation toward someone you don’t know makes no sense. But you are so smug like you hit some kind of homerun on the comment blog. Way to go champ!

            How does it feel to waste your time writing a really long string of nonsense and waiting for me to read and reply to it and knowing that I’m not even going to waste my time reading the rantings of a moronic right-wing conspiracy theorist? If I wanted to waste my time on that crap, I’d watch Fox News or read the latest book from Glen Beck. Wake up!

            Please feel free to post another novel on here that I won’t bother to read, except maybe the first paragraph and the last couple lines that are staring me in the face. You are so educated that everyone is on the edge of their seats just waiting for the next revelation of genius from you.

          • Romney is an idiot. I can’t see him getting any votes from rational people. Now if we really want to improve Obama’s agenda, we must give him a crew that he can work with. We do this by removing all of the “JUST SAY NO” Republicans in congress. We need to show the Republicans what happens when they put politics “before” the good of the country. We need to kick them “ALL” out of office. Don’t just vote for Obama. VOTE A STRAIGHT Democratic ticket. That’s the only way we can keep the ball rolling and get out of the mess we’re in. I hope the 99%ers remember to vote too. We need their help.

          • Don’t be so unsettled by arrogant opinions. Bush-like people, Romney is a classic example, are despicable as are the opinions of someone who hide under plznnn saying insanities about our President.

          • Bush again? He hasn’t ran for office in 8 years, hasn’t held office in 4 years. And you’re STILL running against Bush? Feel like you’re in a rut?

          • Alabama Mike, the name says it all right there. Just because Bush is not running, doesn’t mean that the people now carrying the banner aren’t pushing the same failed policies. Let’s see: tax breaks for the wealthy above all else, yep still Bush. It’s not a choice between Obama or Romney or Obama or Bush even, it’s a choice between policies proven to fail under Bush or proven to succeed under Clinton. If you don’t want your Republican candidates linked to Bush, then TELL THEM TO QUIT PROPOSING HIS FAILED POLICIES!

          • Go shoot a possum for lunch, Alabama — there’s probably one prowling about out by your still in the woods. Second thought — don’t kill the possum — it’s probably your cousin — or you might even try talking to the possum — that’s probably about the only thing that would want to listen to anything you have to say.

          • oh that’s right…his part was saying…ok. inspite of the media being in the tank for this incompetent…the race is still close….

          • Great comment…and so true. Republicans need to lose this election and redefine themselves. As usual, this party is hiding behind the typical God, Gays, and Guns rallying cry of ignorance and hate…rather than face the truth about what they are…totally subservient to big business special interest groups. If more tax cuts are the prescription for economic success…why didn’t the Bush tax cuts drive any economic growth?
            Wake up…if you make less than 200K household income you have no business voting for Romney…he doesn’t care about you…you are completely irrelevant.

          • uh, yeah. Love it when ppl want to jump on that hate wagon to criticize a man who was handed a steaming pile of gop bull that destroyed the economy from the inside out, as well as trashing global respect and goodwill from Bush’s 2 ill-advised wars ( ill-advised by every other country in every peace-keeping world-wide organization we were then members of, and I say “then-members” because ole George had us removed from most). War is ugly business. And it is just that, business. Do those most critical of Obama’s foreign policies stop to consider these 2 things? 1) we are left paying for Bush’s debacle of the “weapons of mass destruction” farce, knowing of course, that his interest was greed and his long-standing relationship with the arabian oil-sheiks. Plain and simple. Of all worldwide atrocities that happen on a daily basis, our interest had more to do with oil than terrorism. The decision to invade was made before 911 happened. 2) criticism of how Obama is handling this issue is just 1 of many issues that people are waiting like Pavlov’s dogs to salivate over every single comment, decision, action that this man has made, waiting to crucify him over every single issue with which he has had to contend in his 4 short years. I think he should get 4 more yrs in default, to see if he can’t improve what he has begun. My faith is not in FAILED policies of the past. Too bad these people weren’t the “patriotic watchdogs” then as they seem to be. Why aren’t more people concerned with facts and truth, rather than suspicion and rumor? Is it because his middle name is Hussein and his last name is weird? Is it because his dad was from Kenya? Is it because of the color of his skin? Or because he is from a far away land known as Hawaii? To those who call him a communist socialist-those 2 words are NOT even compatible with each other. And if he was muslim-someone would have seen him at a mosque sometime in his life!! And no, I am not black, communist, socialist, hawaiian, or any of those. Just a person who reads, considers the sources, and makes informed decisions based on that alone.

        • No it is people that think like you that really truely does bring us down….quit reading conspiracy theory books and spouting false rederick….do some fact checking yourself instead of listnening to the radicalist right wingers like Rush and Colbert!!!!

          • Colbert? The comedian? I can see how he might theoretically be lumped into the same box as Rush Limbaugh… but what you see on his show is an act. He’s about as conservative as Bill Clinton.

        • You Are Just One Of The Liars And Racist Assholes Who Thinks Making Shit Up And Keep Repeating Them Will Make Your Lies Come True!! Here A Clue That Only Work On Dumb Idiot Like Yourself !! So Keep It Moving Tea Bagging Troll!!

      • Romney will get worse if he gets a chance at the presidency. If this is what he is doing and he is not the president–I cannot imagine what he will do as a president commander-in-chief. LORD have mercy on us all.

        • i guess he will take action when he finds out that an embassy is under fire…not to ignore the issue, go on a fundraiser, leading to the deaths of four americans…..

        • And if Obama is re-elected, our republic is doomed for certain. We cannot survive another 4 years of him. It’s imperative that he be removed from office if we want any hope of enduring as a nation.

          • Oh, really? Your statement would be all the better for proof.

            Precisely HOW is it that we “cannot survive another 4 years of him”? How is it imperative to remove him from office? How is it that we may not endure as a nation if he’s re-elected?

            Are we readers supposed to take your unsubstantiated “pearls of wisdom” as undeniable truth, just because you, the Great Sage of the Western World, said them? And where might you have picked up this incisive insight? Fox? Why don’t you at least try to justify yourself by saying, “I’ve made up my mind; don’t confuse me with facts”?

            Thing is, you probably DO know the truth, but you don’t like it, and you accept baldfaced lies that match your attitudes.

            Doomed? That’s what we might have been if Obama had NOT reversed the huge depression he inherited. He couldn’t possibly reverse it all, not in 4 years, or even 8. Nobody can. It takes only a few minutes to blow up a house, but it takes many months to rebuild it. But he averted a total meltdown, and if you can see harm in that, I can only see how you’d view it that way if you were a racist. People on the right like you keep calling him a “d0-nothing” president, and neglect mentioning the “do-nothing” Congress he’s had to contend with. In SPITE of them, he has chalked up an astonishing number of major accomplishments. But YOU don’t see them as such, do you? THAT is the proof of your bigotry, chum.

            You only need to go to the White House site to get a full list of his accomplishments. Most of which he did with zero help from the Republicans in Congress – actually in spite of their constant obstructionism.

            If you can be proud of obstructionist do-nothing Congressmen, you’re in sore need of an attitude adjustment.

          • What cave have you been hiding in for the last 4 years? Obama is a Marxist in case you didn’t notice. What exactly are his accomplishments, besides racking up $16 trillion in debt bringing the country to the brink of economic collapse. Gutting the military rendering the U.S. hardly able to defend itself. Shutting down the whole space program. Bigotry? Oh so if you don’t like Obama’s Marxist policies you must be a racist. That line of b.s is really old. If George W. Bush had gone on Letterman, & the View etc. etc. instead of dealing with the Middle East crisis & the murder of an American diplomat, the media would have crucified him. But as usual the worshipers give Barry a pass no matter how much he fails to lead. Barack Hussein Obama is the worst Prez of the U.S. in history. Wake up to reality!!!

          • so would you rather Romney get elected and start a war with people who we know have nuclear missiles? So ridiculous so many of you on hear are just talking and don’t even know what you are talking about. up wrong up wrong up wrong again. If any one has been living in a cave it is you. Worse if you think former president George w bush was a better president than not only are you beavis that makes you both beavis and but head, actually a bigger but head. Wait a minute you are Sarah Palin’s clone right? people are funny, wow you make governor rick perry look smart damn that is sad. My dis play name is lilymanhatten. Lol!

          • Marxist? Do you even KNOW what that means? Can you point to even ONE measure Obama has tried to pass that fulfills the meaning of Marxism? Or are you just spewing whatever drivel comes out of Fox and Limbaugh?

            No, I didn’t notice that Obama’s a Marxist, because he isn’t one. It’s just that simple.

            The racism is as real as houses, and YOU know it as well as I do. The difference is that you like the racism, and want to cover it up so you won’t LOOK racist. So you yank out the dusty term “Marxist,” and call it a done deal.

            You seem to forget that the Republicans adopted, as their PRIME DIRECTIVE, to make Obama’s presidency fail. And this, before he even took office. He hadn’t had a chance yet to even BE a Marxist, if that is what he was. It was racism, and you’re not fooling anyone to deny it.

            Still trying to make political hay on Obama’s middle name? You poor, pathetic slob. As a scholar of Islam, let me tell you something you probably don’t know about Islam, because you obviously never do any homework. The proof that Obama is NOT a Muslim lies in the fact that he has gone headlong after major terrorist groups and individuals. If a Muslim were to do that, he’d be declared a “false Muslim”, for which the punishment is slow torture and slaughter. Obama is no Muslim; his actions PROVE IT.

            Calling up his middle name is a childish attempt to defame him, and it shows.

            You ASKED what his accomplishments were. YOU asked for it, so here it is – a partial list.

            Now, as a good Republican, you must feel that not ONE of these accomplishments is a good thing, so you can claim he is a “do-nothing” president. Except that he isn’t.

            None of today’s Republicans merits the right to lead us. None of them merit the right to represent a litter of kittens, much less a government.

          • The rescue of the US automobile industry is a perfect example of his socialist views. The auto makers should have gone through a normal bankruptcy. That would have accomplished the same thing without the cost to the US taxpayer for 50 billion plus dollars, that will never be repaid.

            Right now, the federal government owns 500,000,000 shares of GM, or about 26% of the company. It would need to get about $53.00/share for these to break even on the bailout, but the stock closed at only $20.21/share on Tuesday. This left the government holding $10.1 billion worth of stock, and sitting on an unrealized loss of $16.4 billion.

            Right now, the government’s GM stock is worth about 39% less than it was on November 17, 2010, when the company went public at $33.00/share. However, during the intervening time, the Dow Jones Industrial Average has risen by almost 20%, so GM shares have lost 49% of their value relative to the Dow.

          • I agree we should have gone through a normal bankruptcy. And now we have the reality, the same forecasts of the long term ramifications have come true. I believe it was Mitt Romney, the major voice I heard at the time, but his was drowned out by Obama and his minions, his czars, whoever. If only … one is tempted to say, but that is not good enough to just realize. So what do you suggest, Mr. Dixon, that we do to counter these effects? Our children’s lives are at stake.

          • We have to grow our economy in a major way. The Keystone pipeline is a good start. We also need to expand new drilling and nuclear power as well.

          • My comment to yours is under review by moderators. It is a collection of websites pertinent to the pipeline, drilling and nuclear power for energy/electricity.

          • You Yanks are so politically and historically untutored. A socialist is not the same as a Marxist. Try reading a book once in a while to learn about such matters. And Obama is not a socialist any more than Bush Snr or Jnr was a fascist.

            Furthermore, the political differences between US presidents, whether they call themselves a Democrat or a Republican, are much smaller than most Yanks realise. The democratic nature of the US presidential election guarantees that.

            The USA has never had a really lousy president, and very few truly great ones. The mediocrity of the American populace ensures that the US electorate always elect presidents who reflect their own mediocrity.

          • Oh,of course. Which is why the USA has lead the world in higher education and dominated the political world for the past 50 years.

          • Your “facts” did not prevent the Obama contingent to repeat to exhaustion that Bush was fascist — an Obama-Alinsky Rules for Radicals technique — once used effectively on the victim is no longer permitted to be used by the “perp”

          • Are you kidding me? ? ? Watch the movie “2016” which is well documented and factual. UNLESS OF COURSE, truth is irrelevent.

          • Amen, brother. Romney is a sick, evil man. For him, it’s all about him, his millions, and the people like him. No sense of duty, honor, or country. The man is the lowest of the low.

            Obama haters are just that and that only. No real, objective thought since 2008 until now. They hate him. They despise him. Even so that they are blind to the callous, calculated, uncaring and unsypathetic Romney, without a decent, unselfish thought in his silver spoon-bred brain. He’s so out of touch… he doesn’t even know he’s out of touch. Disaster. No sensible choice, but Obama. I love the people that try to sweep under the rug that 8 years of Bush gave Obama – and ALL of us – this economic nightmare that we are in. Selective memory. Obama, all things considered has done well, and has tried hard. He is also a diplomat, and a charismatic world leader… unlike that buffoon, Romney. The guy actually travels around the globe, THIS POLITICAL SEASON, insulting some of our closest allies, and suggesting we start new wars. Reeeeeediculous!

          • Talk about selective memory. The Bush years were doing good until the Democrats took control of Congress during the last two years of his presidency. That is when the slide occurred.

          • Mr.Dixon, I am not sure what you mean by the slide occuring. I guess you mean the beginning of the fiscal disaster that enveloped the country at the end of Bush43’s admin. Well, my comment is this: I thought this all began when the rules for home purchases were made during the Clinton admin and congress. Even so, I am tempted to say it all began when 70 or so years ago welfare was introduced and has never been able to work properly ever.

          • Yes, there were issues that took place before the Bush years. However, what I am saying is that during the Bush years, it was only in the last two years that the economy blew up. Ironically, that is when the Democrats took over Congress. Now they try and blame Bush for a mess that they created.

          • I suggest if you are honestly searching for truth, you have read NO APOLOGY by Mitt Romney, and DREAMS OF THE FATHER “by” Barack Obama. You will see that you need to make a 180 degree turn, jm. Example: Obama is Hollywood and you think actors are deep thinkers. You will think just the opposite is true because the title of deep thinker belongs to the real problem solver, Mitt Romney. I am serious as a heart attack.

            BTW, take note of your other commenter to this, your comment. I agree with Jeff Dixon, and further, I might add Clinton who many think was so successful, only had a Republican congress and he worked “across the aisle.” WHEN have you ever noticed that Obama EVER working across the aisle…. never happened.

          • I don’t know where FASTER is coming from. Cynthia Tucker, the visiting lecturer at University of Georgia needs to go back to kindergarten.
            The Obama administration is totally off base about the terrorist attacks in Lybia. Even the Muslim President Morsi called it a terrorist attack. How many “spontaneous” demonstrators take grenade launchers to a casual protest of a six month old video trailer which nobody had seen on 9/11, chanting we hate Americans?
            This professor is a disgrace even to left wing liberal academia and needs to be let go, just like President Obama, since he said that the ambassador and his aides deaths were “just a bump in the road.” What a disgraceful and insenstive statements for the families of these fallen men!
            If you really want to know why we are going to hell in a basket, I can give you a few dozen reasons why his re-election will finish off the America we grew up in and were proud of.

          • you fail to mention that for the first two years of his presidency, Obama had the ability to do whatever he wanted with a supermajority in the house and senate. If mentioning that simple FACT makes me a racist, so be it. All your screaming and posturing cannot erase what is an undeniable FACT!

          • They say people judge others by themselves. You seem to hold to that rather well.

            YOU would have used that supermajority for all kinds of things, wringing your hands with glee. That doesn’t mean Obama would. He had promised to try to unify our parties, and THAT is what he was doing while he had that supermajority. He knew he could have been a bully, but was TRYING to show the Republicans that he was willing to enter into reasonable discourse with them, to reach mutually-agreed solutions. He’d promised us that he would do this.

            It was not to be. The Republicans formed a brick wall against ANYTHING he tried to do. He finally had to give up, and it DID cost him most of his political capital. We were all able to watch it as this stonewalling was coming down, time and time again. We knew he was trying to fulfill his promise of unity, but there wasn’t any way to get it done. Unity takes good-will on BOTH sides. Obama had the good-will; Republicans most certainly did NOT. I’ve never seen such total hate for a sitting president by members of Congress. It shamed us all.

            I don’t think even Obama himself had any idea of how vicious the racism would be in Congress, nor did I. I had no idea it was THAT BAD. But it is. And now we have to deal with it. We’ll either vote in more racists and remove Obama, or we will KICK THE BUMS OUT!

            I’m very much for the latter. Silly me.

          • It is a silly comment. Opposing the failed vision of the left is not being racist. It is being prudent.

          • For the Love of God, can we seperate political position and feelings on the various positions without calling someone a “bigot”? Further, do some research on what qualifies as a “depression” in economic parlance, what positions are staked out, and try to come to SOME intelligent conclusion. Averted a meltdown? Depends on your definition of meltdown – firms going out of business due to market change or ineffieciency’s is needed in a free market society. Also, the administration spent HUGE amounts of tax dollars that will sub optimize an open market and perpetuate the inneciency (we will see what the long term effect will be). One other thing, take a minute to reseach other opinions, going to the White House web site to get a list of accomplishments is foolhardy, I mean COME ONE, what do you think they are going to say? Ties back to your “Fox” comment you feckless moron.

          • Faster….all I have to say is WOW…Please get your head out of your ass and see the light. During the great depression it took two years to fix the economy by reducing government spending and simplifying subsidence. Obama had two years of free range under a Democratic house and congress and did nothing! And finally he has spend more money than any other president that precede him….socialism is nice, until you run out of money!

          • GOP folks are not interested in the truth – or in facts. Romney has made no secret of that … even though everything else about him is ‘secret,’ including those darn elusive specifics about his policies. Makes me ask…what policies? Well, the GOP doesn’t care about those, either, obviously 🙁

          • If I remembercorrectly his party controlled Congress and the Senate for 2 years and only at the last minute passed a 3000 page bill that no one read. Pelosi “need to pass it to see what is in it” 2nd it was a recession not a depression moron. 3rd a businessman like Romney could have fixed it. 4th the only baldfaced lies are yours NY Times MSNBC…

          • are you a moron or a racist or are you both are you ?kidding me? Now before you get all offensive remember i am asking you questions that’s why you see question marks. Hey I am just insulting you with a question I call it the mitt romney way. lol p.s you can be a racist against your own kind just in case you happen to be black or African!

          • Why not, that’s how he got elected in the first place. By painting anyone who doesn’t agree with him a racist, he made the weak-kneed sheeple vote for him. Pray it doesn’t happen again. By the way, the real definition of “racist” is to prefer someone solely on the basis of race. A black person who prefers to vote for a black person is just as racist as a white person who prefers to vote for a white person.

          • The “real definition of racist”???? Have you gotten out of the dictionary habit? “Racist” is a kind of hater, a person prejudiced against one or more races. It does not mean, as you put it, “to prefer someone solely on the basis of race.” You’re out of your league, chum.

            You may think liberals are weak-kneed because they don’t lust for war, and try to achieve goals with reason and solid analysis rather than name-calling, but that only shows how little you know about what courage really IS. Besides, labeling all liberals as “weak-kneed sheeple” is a confession that you hold deep prejudices.

            Before Obama did Thing #1 as president, the GOP had already made it their sole goal to make him fail. That isn’t racism? If not, what IS IT? Explain the feverish desire to make him fail based on him having, as yet, done nothing?

            Is it possible, in your world view, that blacks saw McCain as a person who would do disservice to their needs? Likewise, they’d see Romney that way too, since most blacks are in that infamous 47% of Americans who are lazy and don’t take responsibility for their lives. THEY know, as well as you do, that that quote was made with the intention of calling up images of lazy, doping, alcoholic blacks who rake in handouts and spend them on booze and dope. To Republicans, that image IS black people. Yet you’d expect them to vote for people with that attitude? I wouldn’t, and I’m white.

            Obama is a very decent man, yet you and other right-wingers vilify him for being what he is. That’s racism, bud.

            Do you, too, hold to the “fact” that his middle name proves he’s a Muslim? Hot flash. Read my other comment here. The way he has gone after Muslim terrorists would get him tortured and killed if he were a Muslim. His own ACTS have proven he isn’t one. But I’d bet you and many other wingnuts still claim he is one – because it’s more socially acceptable to say THAT than to say you don’t want a “N” in the White House.

            You’re kind of transparent.

          • We do see question marks. We see them in the middle of a sentence as well as at the end. If you are going to attack someone for being a moron, you might want to make sure your comment does not prove that you are one first.

          • Romney would surely know how to “fix it,” but I’m thinking you won’t like the result, unless you are a millionaire. As for baldfaced lies – ahem – check out the pants-on-fire lies of Romney before you push your foot further into your mouth.

            Lying has been a Republican mainstay for many years, SURELY well entrenched when Bush W ran the first time, and when he lost the election, he had to jury-rig it so he won.

            After which came 9/11, two wars, and our surplus was routed totally into a recession on a grand scale. Then came Obama, and he was at least able to stop the plunge, and begin to turn it around. Expecting him to do more – especially with a racist Congress – is asking for the superhuman. A recession THAT bad takes years to heal. Even four years isn’t nearly enough.

            And, old bean, you really don’t WANT to know what the economy would have done to YOU if Obama had NOT been elected. If Romney wins, though, you may yet have the chance to find out. It won’t be pretty. Romney is a predator. He won’t care two puffs of comet gas if you descend into poverty. We’ll get more new wars, and a president who will be W. on steroids.

            Happy landings…

          • What do you think of the new revelation that Al-Sharia connected with the WH to announce credit for the disaster in Bennghazi two hours after doing the deed?

          • No reply? No surprise there.

            The layoffs begin to go into second phase of The Owebama Demise of a great country.

          • The comment by Pelosi alone should have been reason to kick her out of Congress. What idiot believes you should pass a law to find out what is in the law?

          • … The Fallacy of Faster and yet he does not know it. Read his responses to Stan Smith. He worships Obama.

          • faster,
            You have a right to you opinion as well as everyone else. Your comment hints of bigotry also. You are demonstrating what you write against. Just as he seems to ignores facts … so does your comments.
            Check your facts when the Democtrates controled both sides. Remember the Republican House cannot complete things without the Democrate Senate. It is all strong bipatisanship on both sides. Yet, it is Pres. Obama’s job to bring them together nd shows no desire to try.
            So we need a change and Romney seems to be the next best choice.

          • I do not flinch at facts that are negative for Democrats. They happen. The ones that apply on the right are more vicious, however, and virtually ALL Republicans in Congress oppose everything Obama likes. When Dems controlled both houses, they did try some bullying. Who wouldn’t? Considering the mega-bullying from Republicans, whether they’re in power or not?

            Yes it was Obama’s job to try to bring them together, and you say he had no desire to try, which is patently FALSE. He did try, very hard. There was so much obstructionism from Republicans, and it was so intractable, he had to give up. THEY don’t want bipartanship most of the time. To thwart Obama, the Republicans were not above holding the entire country hostage, so they could get their own way. THAT does not smack of patriotism to me. It smacks of racism. The kind of racism which even damaging the whole country is worth it to indulge in. I’ve known much about racism in my lifetime, but have NEVER seen it at this level. It’s appalling. Not to mention very dangerous for America.

            The change we need is to get the brick wall, which the Republicans of Congress ALL participated in, OUT. They formed the wall specifically to make Obama’s presidency a failure. And they made it their party’s prime directive, even BEFORE he took office. Every single day, every single Republican has done all he/she can to obstruct measures Obama wanted – even measures they, themselves, had once liked. Once HE liked them, the Republicans had to dislike them.

            If you think Romney will be the best choice, it’s your own nevermind. But if you think he’s best, based on what you said in your comment, it means you haven’t done a lick of homework of your own. How could you have missed the way Obama tried so hard to get bipartisan support for Obamacare? Were you in the hospital? Asleep? Busy saving the world?

            In the entire history of our nation, there has never been a case where one party stonewalled a sitting president, consistently, throughout their entire term in office. Each issue would have a variety of supporters on both sides, and a variety of dissidents on the other – from both parties. But not once Obama took office.

            If you are unable to see the flat racism Obama has faced from Congress in all this time, you never will, because you don’t WANT to see it. And you don’t want to see the racism, because you LIKE IT.

          • Did Kronae grade this comment before you submitted? I heard you have to pass Rules for Radicals to earn the right to post in America, is that right?

          • We will soon be rid of sorry excuse for a President. He has lied so much no one believes him. There are at least three groups which are going to bring articles of impeachment against him. Using a stolen ss number is enough in my eyes to bring federal charges against him, along with the forged birth certificate.


          • If you reallly want to learn about obama you don’t go looking to the white house for answers. Use your computer just like I did and you will then learn the real truth. If you think obama has done good by us these last 4 years you are really missing reality.

            How is this hope and change working out for you?


          • Lie much?

            If this list were true, it would ALL have been on the debate agendas. Much of it would be in the headlines, too (of any media other than Fox and their ilk.)

            Where you got it from is unknown, but astute guesses can be made.

            Your list is part of the DARKNESS of the GOP’s approach to a campaign.

            Hope and change HAS been working out for America, but at a vastly slower pace due to the obscene obstructionism of Republicans in Congress, even in his first 2 years. They wanted to be sure he would fail, even before he became president. If THAT wasn’t pure racism, I don’t know what is.

            And you’re still trying to harp on the abundantly debunked notion that “he’s a Muslim.” Let me tell you something about Islam that I know and you don’t, because I am a scholar of Islam since 1994, and you only know propaganda. IF Obama was a Muslim, he would never have ordered missions to destroy terrorist leaders, and especially to nail bin Laden. In Islam, such things would prove he’s a “false Muslim,” and the punishment for THAT is slow torture before slaughtering him. He proved he is NOT a Muslim, even by Muslim standards. You’re too ignorant and racist to even consider such things. It must be fun not to challenge your brain with too many facts, huh?

            I suppose you have no list of similar obscenities promoted by the GOP?

            We hear nothing of Dems trying to cheat on elections, but there is an actual movement to do so by Republicans. Right before our eyes, too. Yet you don’t address things like that, do you? You like lists of things negative to the liberals, and don’t care if any one of them is substantiated at all. Merely MAKING the accusations is enough for the easily-manipulated minds of right-wingers.

            It isn’t enough for people who think a bit of proof is required here. Your list came out of the sewers. It’s time to send it back, pal.

            If I made up slanderous tales about you, I know who’d believe it all – and it wouldn’t be liberals. It’d be people who think just like you do.

            Take note that in supporting Romney/Ryan, you are supporting predators. They won’t care how much you are harmed by what they plan to do, once they get your vote. You might wish to give that possibility some thought. If you can.

            Of course, the right-wingers do not recognize these as accomplishments, but rather, they oppose each and every one of them on some frivolity or another.

            The fact that our economy even EXISTS today is due to Obama, and in SPITE of the GOP’s united effort to thwart EVERYTHING he tried to do. That’s awesome, that he could do that much, with a Congress that was so racist it would put the whole nation at risk in order to thwart this ONE man.


          • How exactly has Obama reversed the massive downward spiral of the economy? Are you judging by the stock market numbers? Because those are due to the imaginary money the fed puts in to prop up that dead horse. Or perhaps it is the unemployment rate? The one that states that jobs are booming and Obama has had improvements in unemployment for 29 straight months? Because those numbers are a vicious lie. Travel the country and see the foreclosures from coast to coast. 47 million people on food stamps. Many of those not considered unemployed have given up or wiggled their way onto disability. The numbers change on paper but the future of jobs is terrifyingly bleak. The nations debt clock is over 16 trillion dollars putting a 60 thousand dollar on every person in the United States. Obama spent 1.5 billion dollars of taxpayer money on his family. 10 million this year alone for Michelle’s vacations. Going to a government site to get his accomplishments is the weakest form of pro-action possible. Of course his script writers are going to paint him out to be the Messiah, their jobs depend on it.

          • The layoffs proceed with increasing speed in the anticipation of Owebama-do-nothing-care going into effect. Was that part of your plan? What do you say to all those bad guy Republicans (sarcasm) who are moving to save their businesses?

          • Obama is a Marxist low-life who has done absolutely nothing in his entire life… except take extravagant vacations at our expense. If you think our country is going to be better off under him… Heaven help you. With our debt increasing by $125 Million per hour, we’re doomed. There is no way we can recover now. Good luck with that! Hope you have been storing lots of food because you are going to need it. A total collapse is coming in the near future… guaranteed.

          • 4 years of Rommey could be worse.. They will be able to pass all the bills in the favor of the 1% Rich and cut out middle Class America with his plans.. with no tax breaks and sevices. Also keeping us a nation at War.. Sounds like a Bush # 3

          • No… Romney is sharp, very sharp. And he understands the proper role of government. Your class warfare BS is getting old and has no relevance whatsoever. Romney will do what makes America better for ALL its citizens, rich and poor. There is no one better!

          • anna-liza : This mighty man of God has been appointed for two terms in office, having masterfully led the nation and free world in myriads of ways, blessing multitudes of people.

          • son think abt it obama is doing the best any president can do , remember before obama took the office America was losing 735oo job every month and he stop it,now creating more job . outside America nobody like americans but now americans have regain they like from ppl outside America i live in America for ten yr before i move to Europe i have been to so many countries in Europe ,America have regain the likeness from ppl around the world . coming to Romney interest was not for the ppl is for him and his family he believe that poor is a curse from God he dont care abt them he is on his own world the rich get richer the poor shld go and die somewhere, if America let him rule HE WILL SALE AMERICA AND PPL IN IT .GOD BLESS AMERICA …..THANK YOU

          • nnamdis: I don’t know where you are from, but are very misinformed. I know Romney personally and he is one of the most caring, kind, and finest men I have ever been around. He will restore true respect around the world after Obama has done much to destroy that. Romney cares about every single individual (poor as well) very much and will establish the policies that will put everyone back to work. Socialism doesn’t work… it never has. And that is what our country has been moving toward very rapidly. I too have lived outside the USA for about 1/3 of my life and I have seen what works in politics and what doesn’t. America is headed toward collapse and our only hope for stopping the decline is Mitt Romney! I’m praying fervently for his victory! And I just voted today for him!

          • Thank you, Jeff Dixon. I agree.

            The reason Obama must be defeated is clarified by Patrick Henry, American Lawyer, patriot, and orator, symbol of the American struggle for liberty, 1736-1799:

            “The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government – lest it come to dominate our lives and interests.”

            Henry resisted all government, yet saw the need for the U. S. Constitutional law. That seems like a subtle point many don’t quite understand. Am I missing something?

          • You are not missing anything. Too many on the left are far too willing to give up their liberties to the government.

          • How is giving up one’s liberty to the government equivalent to standing for what one believes expecting the government to step in and stop corporate America like in the issue of the XL Keystone pipeline? How do you draw the line? Thank you.

        • You Can Be A Christian Or A Liberal, But Not Both

          By Doug Giles / 2 August 2012

          Can a Christian be a liberal? Short answer: no. There is no way a Christian can buy into progressive/big government ideology and be faithful to the bigger-than-Dallas teachings of Scripture and expect to continue enjoying his hard-won religious liberties.

          For the “Christian” to lean politically to the left means that he must blow off huge chunks of the Bible and replace Scripture with the make-believe notions of PC’s malleable “Christ.” Only after torturing Scripture can the Christian then fit current liberalism into his supposed relationship with God.

          For the Christian who believes that unfeigned faith in Christ should correspond with Jesus’ high view of Scripture, it is impossible to believe in God and be an adherent to this schlock.

          Liberalism has been hijacked by bizarre special-interest thugs who defy the Word of God and believe that the Bible has no place in public life (except maybe in a museum where people can look at it from time to time).

          The Christian skipping around the maypole wearing his rose-colored glasses who has a bent to the liberal left needs to understand something: If it were left up to the modern, secularized liberal establishment, Christians would be more restricted than Bill when Hillary’s in town. If the Christophobic thugs had it their way, Christians would be relegated to a marginalized spiritual ghetto on the sidelines of life.

          For the naive Christian voter who thinks he can toss a ballot in the progressive direction, please know that a vote toward the secular left could leave you bereft of sacred liberties. Thanks to the aggressive and ludicrous liberal lug nuts’ anti-Christian agenda, your vote for a leftist is a vote for:

          1. Christianity to be scrubbed from government and whatever turf the government owns. Thanks to the liberals, the Ten Commandments have about as much acceptance in our government and their properties as Rush Limbaugh would at Sandra Fluke’s family reunion. The Judeo-Christian principles that formed the rock-solid foundation of this great American Experiment are now aggressively and consistently attacked by the lascivious left.

          If . . . if . . . the secularists continue to stay behind the wheel of this American bus, you can kiss all semblance of Christianity good-bye in this heretofore God-graced government. Saint, you might as well say farewell to our government’s recognizing Christmas and adios to Good Friday if you’re going to vote the liberal ticket. If the secularists have it their way, Easter will be behind your keister, and you can kiss the Cross good-night as an acceptable public symbol that represents your faith and our nation’s recognition of Christ’s atoning work.

          2. Secularism to be continually mainlined into our public school system. Thanks to rabid, vapid secularism, our public schools and universities would rather you be a Rocky Horror super freak than a Christian. If your beliefs run to the bizarre or the banal or if you want to smoke the same philosophical crack that Caligula, Nero, Castro or Lenin freebased, they’ll accommodate you.

          Our schools are totally open to anyone and to anything, unless, of course, you’re a Christian. And if that’s the case, then you’re likely to get more sympathy from a badger with minimal sleep than you will from liberal educators who are hard at work making your life hard. Let me repeat: A vote for the secular left is a vote for Christianity to continue to be officially vilified on campus and for Christians to be ostracized in campus life.

          3. Public officials, employees and appointees to be pressured to hide their faith in the closet and suppress their public displays of belief in God lest they be grouped with Hitler, Osama, or Mussolini and then fired. Not only will the liberals aggressively work to prohibit the State from green lighting and recognizing Christianity as a legitimate and positive force in our land, they will also attempt to stifle Christians from influencing the path of government.

          4. Public attacks on churches and Christians and attempts to restrict them in the private sector. Consider this, Christian pastor and Christian lay person looking to vote for the ludicrous left: The secular Mafioso’s intent is to make your ministerial life difficult, your evangelistic work taxing and your voice minimized.

          5. The continued media endorsement of the same putrid, hedonistic stuff that sunk ancient civilizations. With the liberals in place, expect more weird crap in movies and on television. Expect to see more paintings of Christian symbols and saints smeared with elephant dung. Expect Christianity to be bashed and vilified and Christians made out to be buckled-shoed morons with three teeth and an IQ of 50. Expect the culture to coarsen. Expect your kids to continue to be exposed to things that only rock stars see backstage with groupies. A vote for a liberal is a vote to see Christians continue to receive special ridicule and be flogged more than a piñata during a Cinco de Mayo festival.

          Modern liberalism tosses out Scripture on several different levels. How a true believer in the Christ defined by Scripture can buy into what Jesus, the prophets and apostles said and also give credence to what these secular goons say is beyond me. In addition to liberalism’s obvious and odious pro-Holocaust-like abortion stance, its anti-biblical view of marriage, its Scripture-slamming, aggressive secularism, and its feckless view of our nation’s defense, liberalism completely clashes with the Christian worldview. Progressivism’s aggressive desire to eradicate Christians’ rights should cause Christians to be concerned.

          The Democratic Party’s liberalism has degenerated over the last 40-50 years in regard to its view of Christianity and Christian rights. This party, which formerly embraced and protected our nation’s great Christian heritage and teachings no longer does so. Thus, today the Christian is between a rock and a hard place: He can either be a Christian or a liberal—but he cannot be both.

      • Fern, You are wrong. Mitt is a very good man! He doesn’t need the presidency… he is only running because he loves our country and wants to try and save it from the destructive course we are on.

        • Alright I’ll do it… B*LLSH*T!!! Yeah, I said it… You are absolutely right – he doesn’t need the presidency! He is running for the presidency purely out of ego and narcissism. And some might say daddy issues… “Look dad, you couldn’t do it, but I did!” That’s not a half a step away from the last Talipublican resident of the white house – he probably said the same thing. NitMitt hasn’t articulated a view for the country or a future. He’s flipped so many times on social issues no one can figure out what he stands for except more wealth for the already wealthy. But every time he opens his pie-hole, you get a better picture and it’s not pretty. You’re just another paid Talipublican troll coming out of the woodwork – go away, this site is not for you.

          • I fear for our country like never before because of people like you. I truly feel sorry for you. I have lived under Democracy, Socialism, Communism, and even a Dictatorship. Trust me Democracy is best. But with citizens of your lack of understanding, we are headed toward one of the destructive forms of government, sadly.

        • You’re so right. He doesn’t need the presidenccy. He’s got his dancing horse, his CA mansion with it’s car elevator, his offshore secret accounts, his hidden tax returns and best of all, his disdain for 47% of us.
          As it turns out, we don’t need him either.

      • If you think that about romney then you really have to see obama 100% worse your not talking about romney your talking about obama with everything you said. You need to take a really deep look and educate yourself on the facts about you hero obama and you will see how wrong you were and it might be to late than and you explain to your grandchildren how you play a part in changing america and taken away the promise of a better future and life their going to have to live. You make sure you have that conversation with them maybe they will forgive you when the rest of us won’t…

      • I suppose you’re right, because anyone who is a predator on his own species would HAVE to be sociopathic. You can’t revere your own victims as worthy of anything good, except gaining access to them, so you can chew on them.

        What matters here is that the Red slate is predatory. The top lines of their ballot most of all. (Which includes Congressional races.) Not one of us will be spared, either, not even those in the loyal “base.” Only their votes matter – for now. After which they, as human beings, will cease to matter at all.

        Please try to remember that it was the right which cared not if the nation crumbled entirely – as long as they could hold it hostage to get things they couldn’t gain with reason and persuasion.

        That’s predatory.

      • I believe that Romney is just a spoiled brat who never knew what the word “no” means and will do anything to get what he wants and Ann follows in support of whatever he does. He is a pathological liar and he shown this side of himself more than one time. He is so loveless looking, a cold, hearted man made from a stone. Hardened heart against people. He sees people as someone to walk on, a stepping stone where he wants to be. Just trash in the street, dirt bags who will believe him no matter what he says or does. Please believe me there are people out there who are of this caliber. Blindly following Romney because he is a republican.

      • “NOT to mention Carl Rove (who is an even BIGGER lier!)”

        Karl Rove does more damage in stealth than Obama has done overtly. Rove needs to go. Rove is the reason for Romney’s tepid attacks on Obama’s foreign policy because ultimately Rove wants something similar but for personal reasons rather than Obama’s anti-colonial fantasies. Rove is a closet Muslim funded by Saudi and other Sunni oil funds. Islam fully supports it’s believers operating this way.

        Obama and Rove need to be politically exposed and neutralized.

    • I applaud your involvement and obvious passion. You’re right in many comments.

      It is so much better to have someone who claims to want to close Guantanamo and has the power but still refuses to do so.

      It’s much better to overlook the shameless drubbing on the 1st Amendment we have steadily witnessed over the past 3 years. Announcing the name and locating the yutz who made a really crappy movie is to invite AQ death squads onto US soil. Watch DHS/TSA spin up. Good luck getting through security anytime soon. BTW – the incumbent could have dismantled them.

      I’m sure it’s difficult for someone in office to reconcile winning a Nobel Peace Prize with killing more people than anyone else -EVER- by drone.

      It’s not the person. The office has been made into a place where only socio-paths dare tread.

      There are no good choices… only bad and less worse.

      And on the first Tuesday in November we, you and I and all Americans, get to choose.

        • No. He can’t pass a law. But he can issue executive orders and his various departments (Justice, Homeland security, VA, etc) can also establish regulations with the force of law. Just try pouring some banned stuff into a drain and see how big a fine the EPA can assess.

          Laws = Congress
          Executive orders, Regulations = President.

          And who’s stopped him so far from things like closing Guantanamo? Is he or is he not the Commander in Chief? Is the military disobeying orders by keeping it open? Nothing needed from Legislative branch. All Executive branch.

          what else you got?

          • The President proposes, Congress disposes. Funding for all programs must be approved by Congress. The President signs it or vetoes it…when he knows the opposition does not have enough votes to override a presidential veto.
            President Obama tried to close the Guantanamo prison camp (not the naval base) and he was almost eaten alive by Republicans who accused him of endangering U.S. security.
            The Executive Branch does have extraordinary powers, particularly in emergencies, but a President can not make decisions such as going to war without Congressional approval except in cases where the security of the USA is at stake and even then for a limited number of days.

    • Not borderline sociopathic, there is no such thing. You either are or you aren’t. Most of the elite are sociopaths (and it’s genetic). Romney certainly is. Obama is too. So were the Bushes.

    • Amazing! Romney used facts which the President does not understand because he lives in a bubble protected by the media. Our country cannot afford another four years of voting present as a president. Obama has taken four years to pass a medical reform bill which takes money from existing programs and will put the final nail in the economies coffin. Socially, this person is perverse, under his so called leadership he is trying to re-define marriage against the will of the majority of Americans, his policy has also allowed and legalized sodomy and beastiology; that is not normal! He is not enforcing existing laws protecting the traditional view of marriage, and disregards the constitution which he calls outdated. His Unjustive therefore lawless department is allowing guns to walk across the border then tries to blame our constitutional right to possess arms as the cause; why don’t you ask who allowed it to happen, who gave the weapons to the cartels? By the way our country supplies military equipment so that nations can defend themselves form tyrants but we can’t do the same? His economic platform is socialism; take from those that have and give it to those that don’t work, don’t pay taxes, expect free stuff all the time! Really, this is the incentive for those who pay their taxes, give to charity, and provide for their families? What is happening? Obama wants to make government the provider of life itself by regulating every aspect of society; his cronies are doing it in New York! Are you serious? You want to be a slave then move to China! We can still turn this ship around! Vote for a new direction or at least vote because he is not Obama and his policies. Vote to save our Republic!

    • Yes, it is terrible when someone points out the failed policies of the Obama administration. It is terrible when someone points out that the lack of security was the fault of Obama who refused to increase security. Great Britain had pulled out their ambassador due to the reality that it was too dangerous. Our ambassador was begging for more security. And then Obama lies about what he knew and when he knew it. He is a disaster.

    • From your description of Governor Romney, I know you are the sociopath. Are American taxpayers funding Kronae’s group, (all 230 of them) research online, also?

        • What I care about is not so much you, ryueire, but what your contingent of classmates are trying to do to inhibit the process of my country’s U. S. Constitutional Republic. I do care that I notice you are part of those efforts.

          Would you care to tell us where you come from, and why you are here and not there? Let, me guess. You think that what Americans have we didn’t build, right? And as for as you are concerned, it is yours and you can come over and take it or else destroy it. Don’t bother rebuttalling this, it is not a question for debate, it is a simple truth.

          I just want you to know that the typical American knows what you are trying to do. Now I know you are a friend of lurl, so I ask that you get my suggestion from him to read 1776 by McCullough in order to understand American resolve. and make no mistake about it we are resolved.

    • you have no idea of what you are talking about and you will be one of many waisted vote that helps kill the USA as we know it and you can stop and remember the damage you alone are rssponsible for with your misdirected comment about romney . you want to sit back and watch our country fall apart thats your business and you will have to live with what you have done. You need to do your home work on the bills sitting in congress waiting to become effective till after the election. Now why do you think that is. You can’t be that uneducated on this election as you write. You will help destroy our country and will be the first to bitch about it. Get a grip on reality because you are not even close.

    • Obama is a terrorist and a Muslim, he allowed 4 Americans to be murdered and you worry about Romney you are one sick puppy.

  4. Character is formed early! Our knowledge of romney in prep school was as a cruel bully who committed assault on a peer with a weapon [scissors] and walked a blind professor into a door! He lies with alacrity and glee about most everything for self promotion! Romney uses the pathological trait of projection which goes to the mental illness of the sociopath!

    This guy is a DANGEROUS AMATEUR! Surrounded by Neo Cons and other fools! The sooner that willard and lyin ryan get off the stage the better!

    • And yet he claims that he doesn’t remember these things. He must have done so many mean things that he can’t recall one specific thing. If I had done something so vicious, I would remember it the rest of my life.

      • Because you have concience he have NONE.
        “Indulging no passions which trespass on the rights, or the repose of other nations, it has been the glory of the United States to cultivate peace by observing justice, and to entiltled themselves to the respect of the nations at war by fullfilling their neutral obligations with the most scrupulous impartiality” – J. Madison
        I Mittsy the ditzy found he had cannibals among his constituents, he would promise them his own mother for dinner, to get to the top.
        A chicken hawk and a coward.

      • On that impersonating a Law Enforcement Officer and Fire Fighter, I think when the scam was running foul and word was getting out what they were doing, he did fire the perpetrator of the act? However, he later gave him a job working for him when he was governor of mass.

      • The only people that change are the ones that want to change. God touches hearts and minds to change. You must remember that Romney has no mind nor heart and that is the basic difference between what educators, probation officers and social workers contend with. Money will buy you anything, Romeny trusts in his money and not in God. A Godly man would never insist on killing people at the a whim.

  5. Romney has no principles, no backbone, and no brains. What is hard to accept is the large number of middle and lower income people who will destroy themselves by voting for him.

    • People are born without character and you cannot give it to them–just like class it is something you are born with. Romney and Ann have no class. He never served in the military, never had a hungry day in his life, never really loved anyone in his life, just a love of grabbng money anyway that he could get it. That said and done with. Obama 2012!

  6. Clearly, it’s Obama’s fault for the way Mitt acted. You can’t hold Mitt responsible for anything Mitt says or does because every single thing Mitt has said and done has been contradicted by everything that Mitt has said or done.
    Mitt is as slippery as a snake and as loyal as one too. When Mitt bites you in the a$$, don’t ask Mitt why Mitt did it… because that is Mitt’s Nature.

  7. Romney apparently has not learned the decent American view that during a crisis, the country has only one president at a time. I can only imagine the outrage by all on the right if this scenario happened to a President Romney. I’ll take no drama Obama any day. Our President always has to walk a fine line; his lack of bluster is often misconstrued as dithering or lack of leadership. Just what is “leadership” during these times? Shooting from the hip as during the W. years, or working behind the scene and away from the cameras? The right has been waiting and waiting for Obama to emerge as the “angry black man” and then they can prove that we should be very, very afraid, like they told us all along. In 2008, Michelle made one mistake, with her inartful –“the first time I have been proud of my country–” taken out of context, and she has been labelled as the angry black woman ever since. Romney is a real piece of work. He seems insulated from the real world. I don’t know if it’s from his priveleged upbringing, or the fact that most of his interpersonal relations have been in the high stakes business world, or from the culture surrounding the Mormon faith. I have nothing against the Mormon faith and all the good that they do, just that it operates much like a “closed” society, and is all encompasing regarding their daily life. I wonder if it is a disadvantage in his being able to perceive the varieties of the millions of people in our country the president has to govern.

    • You and Cynthia Tucker have hit exactly on the characteristics that, in my view, limit Mitt Romney’s capacity to lead effectively: circumscribed world view perhaps derived from his Mormon upbringing in combination with his lifelong membership in the 1%, and his comfort with the greed agenda proscribed by his campaign donors. These traits I associate with his upbringing and social status.

      To this combination, I might add nepotistic aspirations for his five sons and his sense, perhaps derived from his father’s career, that he is entitled to obtain the presidency, which gets into a family dynamic we have seen before in American politics. These traits point to a personal narrative that forms a tight circle binding Romney to his forebears and his children to the exclusion of all else. The Ancient Greeks, who were expert at this kind of inbred political intrigue, took a dim view of the prospects for families caught up in it, warning: character is destiny.

      Most discouraging, I find, is his failure to recognize that there is a learning curve to public service in our country, which requires significant research, constantly updating knowledge, and the kind of serious analysis for which he has little temperament or respect. He’s had years to educate himself about foreign relations, for example, with every resource at his fingertips, but he seems not to have bothered to do so. He’s too comfortable with appeasing constituents, many of whom are bigoted and misogynistic, and with lying to have a decent respect for education or a genuine interest in the world around him.

      Finally, as others on this thread have pointed out and as demonstrated by Romney’s statements this week regarding the tragedy in Lybia and unrest among Muslims worldwide, he has a bully’s penchant to settle the score through surprise attacks and power plays rather than deliberation and reconciliation. A new study by Common Cause, covering GOP efforts to intimidate voters and suppress the vote, such as the TruetheVote movement, is entitled, “Bullies at the Ballot Box.” To the extent to which Romney tacitly endorses these methods, indicating he is OK with winning by cheating, there is a bully IN the ballot box as well.

  8. Romney is nothing like his father. At least his father knew what he stood for and wasn’t afraid to admit mistakes, unlike his son.

    There was article that I read about Romney at Stanford. He seems to just parrot his father’s thoughts.

    • Mitt doesn’t hold a candle to his dad, George. I remember when his dad was governor of Michigan and remember him as being good. I was a teenager and just starting to become aware of politics. (OK, the interest in politics actually began with JFK but a 3rd grader can be forgiven for basing her opinion on looks rather than substance.)

  9. You can be a selfish, rich, removed person in a cult. That doesn’t mean that you’ll torture a fellow student, humiliate your teacher, torment your dog, and be unable to muster an ounce of empathy when in the spotlight. Romney’s problem is that, imo, he seems to be faking emotion, seems unable to read individuals or groups, and gets it all wrong. This is not a conservative characteristic; Ryan, Santorum, Cantor, McCain, even Palin and Bachmann, do not have this problem. Most politicians don’t; most have enough empathy to “read” groups; this is why they succeed.

  10. I really don’t believe that Willard the Rat man can ever be accused of having character, some people are born without it, it so seems. Never had to learn to earn something, that is one of the greatest builders of character. Probably always had someone to buy away his screw ups. Never served in the military and learned character the hard way. Never worked for a salary and struggled to raise the kids.

  11. Romney has style but no substance. My roommates five year old daughter saw a picture of him, and said “That man’s hair is just too perfect. How does he even sleep with that hair?” My concern is how does he sleep after all the things he says and does that are of no benefit to anyone but himself. He is an empty suit with no principles of his own.

  12. Agree with Ms. Tucker. There is no way to change what he did: he does not show strength but recklessness. He panders to extremists who have hate motivating their selection of Mr. Romney. In all honestly, when you look at the last Presidential election, when Ms. Palin went “rogue” they turned potential voters away from what might have been the Palin persona of romance and charisma euqally a lot of votes. When McCain suspended his campaign to do almost nothing to advance the DC discussions on the economic freefall, they lost many additional folks. That election was driven by hate of the other candidate. If the Repubs keep nominating candidates they know they can mold, they will continue to lose. I realize the Repub candidates were an interesting and weak lot, but there were a few candidate hopefuls they discarded, for the wrong reasons. For example, John Huntsman is very conservative and a statesman. He was a wonderful candidate for them to look at seriously. Why didn’t they? Perhaps because he could not be molded by extremists.

  13. His lack of character shows how he accumulated so much money at the expense of the average guy.
    Taking their pension funds and health funds while shipping their jobs overseas shows a coldness
    equal to that of Scrooge and shylock.

      • Well you must really be into pimps. Who’s your pimp? It must be the mittster. He only like to travel to the Cayman’s on his multimillion dollar yacht entertaining his rich sob’s and laughinjg all the way to his secret accounts. It that’s 24/7 for him. LOL sisterH

      • I’am black grew in the south haven’t heard that upitty thing in long time. Of course that ni$$er couldn’t play golf, on any of those golf course, in them good ole red state back in my day, NO SIREEEEEEEEEE, think about you can spew your hate behind your computer screen and not behind a sheet.

      • “Uppity street pimp”, eh? That tells me all I need to know about you. You are a racist prig who has clearly bought into all the worst stereotypes of black people. It is people like you who want to “take back” the country from those “others” (read black people in your white house). Barack Obama has been a fine president, far better than your white hero Myth Rmoney could ever be.

        • what is up with the race card crap. Uppity is his arrogance and the pimp is that he’s exploiting his base…….making money off them or gaining his own personal power from using them. Nothing to do with race. You must have been one of the race people who voted because of race….not at all what Martin Luther King was aiming for when he said “the color of a persons eyes no more important than the color of their skin”. Get off the race train….it’s about his failure to lead this nation.

    [keep reading. I keep updating]

    This crap is just slight of hand employed by the useful idiots at The Memo and the Obozo campaign propaganda machine called “the media”. All of this is designed to take our focus off of the failure of Obozo. Obozo the utter Failure-in-Chief who cannot talk about his record so the useful idiots at The Memo try to distract us from what is really important in this election year… Obozo’s record of failure.

    BH Obozo has had a sum total of 1 (one) success. Ordering the killing of OBL. That’s it. There is nothing else in 4 years. Nothing. And even that isnt really as big a deal for him as it is for the soldiers who actually did the mission. But the narcissist-in-chief is always quick to claim credit for himself.

    Lets take a look at some of Obozo’s other “successes and accomplishments”…….

    1) Obozo comes into office $10T in debt. 3.5 years later, $16T in debt
    1A) Obozo is first President in American history to be so fiscally irresponsible that he and his DemocRAT Congress caused US Credit Rating to be cut. Nice accomplishment Mr. Obozo!!! This has now happened twice. The US credit rating has been cut again.
    1C) Median income in America has fallen from $54K to $50K in the 4 years Obozo has been in office.
    2) 2 years complete control of the government. NO budget as required by the Constitution. Still has no budget. The one budget he presented that was actually voted on by the Senate went down to defeat by a vote of 97 to 0. Nice work Mr. Obozo!!! THAT IS an accomplishment!
    3) A new bankrupting entitlement program called Obozocare jammed through congress against the vast majority of Americans who were against it (and still are) and with the blessings of the idiot Nancy Piglosi who said “we have to pass the bill before we know what is in it”. Nice work, Mr. Obozo!
    4) Persistent unemployment that has been the worst since the Great Depression, especially among blacks and young people. His administration keeps claiming unemployment is going down, but in reality, they manipulate the formula by reducing the # of jobs available. And then they claim that over 8% unemployment is good! Quite an accomplishment in propaganda, but not economics, Mr. Obozo.
    5) Promises to close Gitmo…. instead, he spends $750K on a soccer field for terrorists. Don’t get me wrong, Gitmo should stay open. This is an example of how stupid and naive Obozo really is. Nice accomplishment, Mr. Obozo!
    6) Gas prices are up 100%++ across the nation. And Obozo is so dumb he actually believes that increasing supply has no effect on prices… what an idiot! Blocking EVERY permit that has come before his administration and blocking pipelines that increase supplies does HAVE consequences, Mr. Obozo. Gas prices are through the roof! Nice going Mr. Obozo!
    7) Real inflation rates are close to 8% or higher. Who measures inflation without food and fuel??????? Obozo does! Another strong achievement in propaganda, Mr. President!

    [the following items 8 – 11 are about Obozo’s failed PUBLIC EQUITY business]
    8) SOLYNDRA!!!!!!!! need I say more? Nice job paying off your rich buddies who bundle campaign cash for you, Mr. Obozo! You can probably count on some of those dollars coming back to you. wink, wink!!
    9) SOLAR TRUST… another BILLION DOLLAR boondoggle in your attempt to play venture capitalist with taxpayer money that actually goes to your FAT CAT financier friends who are big donors. Nice money laundering accomplishment, Mr. Obozo! Should I say more? OK.. I will…
    10) ECOTALITY – Another “green” Obozo investment disaster. Obozo gave them $115 MILLION. The SEC investigates fraud at the company. While that’s going on, Obozo gives them another $26 MILLION…. What an idiot! Nice accomplishment Mr. Obozo!
    11) Fisker Automotive – yeah, that company that you gave $200MILLION to so they can build cars overseas, right? Great job creating jobs overseas, Mr. Obozo, you friggin clown!
    12) Fast and Furious!!!!! If this was a Republican Admin, all of you nutjobs that write on this web site would be going justifiably ballistic!! It would be the lead story on ABC, CBS, NBC, MSLSD, CNN, etc. etc.
    13) Same with the crook Jon Corzine. He steals $2B in client money, much of it farmers money, to cover his own bad bets. Then he gets to continue on raising money for Obozo like nothing ever happened. Where is Eric The Incompetent Holder? ……… crickets………. crickets……….. crickets………. Thought so!
    14) 88% of Americans say they are spending way more on groceries now than we were 4 years ago.
    15) 50% of Americans have had to give money to a relative at least once to help them get buy in the past 4 years.
    16) 47 MILLION Americans are on Food Stamps, and that number is growing quickly. In fact, Obozo has created more dependency than any other US President in history. Nice accomplishment, Mr. Obozo!
    17) Obozo was caught bribing Joe Sestak to NOT run against Specter. A clear felony. What is Eric “The Incompetent” Holder doing about it? Crickets….. crickets….. crickets……
    18) It has now come out that the Obozo had close ties with the New Black Panther Party and even marched with them at Selma in 2007. A few NBP thugs intimidate voters and the DoJ, after hearing from Obozo, decides to drop an open and shut, slam dunk case of voter intimidation which was CAUGHT ON TAPE!!! Hmmmm… why was that case dropped? Anyone care to venture a guess? Corruption from the thug-in-chief yet again.
    19) The “anti-war president” took troops in Afghanistan from 30K to 110K. The anti-war president that promised we’d be out of Afghanistan by July 2010. The anti-war president that took a war where only 400 Americans died in 8 years under Bush, and now 1700 have died under Obozo’s “leadership” in 3.5 years but which the media stays silent on that one. What happen to the nightly body counts on the news under Bush that seemed to have disappeared under Obozo? Body count goes up, media goes silent. Hmmmm… Nooooooo… they’re not in the tank! No way! You leftist freaks are hypocrites of the worst degree.
    20) Obozo Regime WAGES WAR ON US MILITARY AND THEIR VOTING RIGHTS. What a piece of shit this guy Barak Hussein Obozo guy is. How is it possible that a sitting president would sick his thugs at DoJ on our own military? Obozo is a despicable piece of human garbage and he should be thrown out just like scraps from the table.
    21) Obozo Regime f#%ks 20,000 employees and retirees of Delphi by stripping them of their pensions so that they can pay off the union thugs. Documents obtained now show that Turbo Tax Cheat Geithner personally was involve is this screwing of middle class workers at the direction of the messiah Obozo. How can anyone support Obozo the loser unless they are the most committed leftist freak?

    I’ll continue to refocus the discussion on what is important and not these foolish smokescreens the left throws up to obfuscate Obozo’s true failure as a socialist in the White House.

    Have a nice day!

    “Fathom the hypocrisy of a political party that has a convention focused on abortion, contraception, and so-called women’s rights, AND has as their big speaker and hero an admitted sexual harasser and accused rapist that was impeached for lying in a court of law about it.” – ObozoMustGo

    • Obozo

      OK you have convinced yourself, then vote for the lying cheating, distorting head of the American Taliban Republicans because he should have at least one vote to show for $350 million in ad dollars he has spent.

      • what a stunning indictment of why this country’s where it is.

        21 Assertions, 18 of which are DOCUMENTABLE (3, 12 and 20 are judgment calls) and it gets dismissed with personal comments.

        I’m sure there’s an ability to think independently, yet it seems to have disappeared.

        In the absence of counterfactuals, the assumption is the initial assertions must be correct.

        When did America become bereft of people capable of thinking for themselves and so willing to deny objective reality?

        Obozomustgo – you have some decent facts, but your delivery and embedded commentary just kill your message.

        We’re all in this and participatory, let’s make sure everyone gets out there on November 6th.

    • OMG……woah…now. Wow who uncorcked you? The democrats didn’t change focus they will return to focus on where are ROMNEY’s TAX returns. Romney brought this on himself by falsely jumping out there during the unfolding of the Lybia crisis. I would think you are smarter than to still be behind this spoiled rich kid punk. Unless you are a 2%’er in which case, please for your own soul, you don’t have to be a Romney you can be a Bill Gates. Money is not GOD and GOD is not Money.

      • Gene… Romney was correct to criticize the Obozo regime’s knee-jerk reaction to apologize to radical islamists that want to kill us. Yes he was!

        And for all of you lefist freaks out there who are so worried about Romney’s tax returns… why are your so worried about what he does with his private and personal money, but are so unconcerned what Obozo does with public money? You’re a sucker for class warfare, Gene, and you know it but can’t help it. Odd how jealousy runs so deep through and old Marine.

        [click images to enlarge] – lefist hypocrisy at it’s best…

        Have a nice day!

        “Some people regard private enterprise as a predatory tiger to be shot. Others look on it as a cow they can milk. Not enough people see it as a healthy horse, pulling a sturdy wagon.” – Winston Churchill

        • HE NEVER APOLOGIZED ! Did you watch Hannity’s made up timeline again or listen to LIMBLAH bluster on about how Romney is “The ONLY one sounding Presidential in all of this” The people inside the Embassy put out the apologetic twitter, trying, unsuccesfully, to calm the crowd. ARREST Have already been made of some of the suspects. You won’t hear that on FAUX news…..I got that from some military friends, who are wondering why this isn’t plastered all over the newspapers as I write this. OMG….quit spreading lies…doesn’t Romney do that for you enough? I was personally disgusted by his smirk as he walked away from the podium thinking he scored points, not knowing that the tweet was from within the Embassy, in a desperate attempt to avert violence. Jealousy OMG….give me a break ! You know better. I am straight up middle class…not the middle class Romney thinks $200 – $250K. (What a MORON) but middle class and very comfortable with it, as I only have ONE GOD. You may want to check an ACTUAL timeline of the Libya crisis, not on FOX, or you’ll just look even more uninformed.

  15. Romney is a great man. The National Memo website is publishing biased articles to Prop up Obama. We all know Obama is a failure no matter what they write. Obama doesn’t know how to run a country and we are suffering because of this. Unemployment is rising because of his policies. Liberals need to face the fact they are supporting failure.
    Have Faith that things are not as reported. Just look at how few pro-obama stickers are on the back of cars this time compared to last time. The Obama camp has to give them away this time and the words obama-biden are printed very small. America has woken up and we no longer believe the liberal media. Obama is a fraud and we know it.

      • why on earth did you reply to me on another post and start with the racism crap. I got news for you and your liberal friends—you are the racist. Voting someone into office because of the color of their skin. Playing the race card when someone actually vets Obama. Attacking Conservatives who aren’t white. Obama uses race to divide and distract…….that’s racist.

        • I hear this repeated a lot that Obama was voted into office because of the color of his skin. Really? On what do you base your opinion? Have surveys or facts to support your statement? Of course not. We can’t let little things like facts get in the way of our feelings.

          In addition, you insult those who did vote for them by making them seem as superficial or one-issue focused as you RINO reactionaries. IMO, YOU are only projecting on to others your own dislike of Obama because he’s black.

          If Obama does use race to divide and distract, then you should be able to provide specific examples of this behavior that will stand up to scrutiny. If you can’t, then you’re just trolling here – which I think is your real purpose.

  16. Romney is the worst candidate I ever seem. He look like robot when he is given a speech. The man is seen himself became richer. The man has no character, pathological liar. All those who is going to vote for him they are the one who is going to suffer more. If he ever made to the white house, who he is going to bully (RYAN) GOOD LUCK PAL.?????????????????????????)

    • Hey Coo-Coo Obama is a lie. You are supporting the big Lie. He doesn’t care about the middle class and he doesn’t care about poor people or latino’s. He uses latino’s and poor people…’s about control and making people dependent on government. It doesn’t work and that why america isn’t working.

      • Well, if that is true, then Romney is using the racists, christians, rich and ignorant to his advantage. That leaves the rest of us to make an intelligent, informed and careful decision.

    • it’s so much better to keep someone who has put you, your kids, grandkids, and all of us into 6trillion in debt in almost four years.

      and it must be you’re a very lucky one who doesn’t know anyone presently UNEMPLOYED or underemployed or receiving some kind of assistance. Most everyone knows someone who’s down on their luck or has been in the past 3 years (let’s assume the first year was a hangover from the previous guy).

      And I’m sure there was almost no lying involved in signing a document in front of cameras promising to close Guantanamo. It’s still open and no one in the military has been fired for disobeying Obama’s order to close it.

      The bottom line is that the system is broke and only psychopaths are willing to sell their souls for a huge taste of the power.

      Now let’s all get out there on November 6th and vote.

  17. Romney is a typical rich frat boy. We all remember them from high school, don’t we? The jocks who strutted around as tho’ they owned the world-girls adored them, teachers were afraid of them. Yet, when they got out into the real world, their true character flaws became evident. This gutless wonder sailed off to France to convert people to Mormonism (he didn’t get a one) instead of serving his country in the Vietnam War. His sons followed his example and not one of them has offered to serve his country in any capacity except to work to get the robot elected. What a bunch of snobbish quasi religious people. I don’t want this man anywhere near the White House – he is still that nasty little snark living off his Daddy’s reputation and money who pretended to eat tunafish and pasta off an ironing board. Does anyone really believe that hokum> And don’t get me started on that choir boy, Lyin’ Ryan – he deserves a book about his past.

  18. I never liked this guy, but what cinched it for me was his comment that ‘Corporations are people, my friend’ in response to a well and politely delivered question about corporations and business in Iowa. His arrogance and lack of a soul showed themselves in all their ugliness in that one unscripted moment for me. After that there was nothing he could do that would alter my opinion of him. He is totally unfit to be America’s leader. And I don’t even know why he wants to be, but I have some ideas. Anyway….with every day he continues to reveal just how inept and how without a heart and soul he is. He is not his father’s son by any means.

  19. sometimes i do not sleep at night because of people like mitt romney and his party. it really comes from feeling they are entitled and its their way or the highway. i can not believe that people living in this great country put their own needs before the american people. growing up i was taught if you do the right thing your life would be rewarded ( i do not mean monetarily) but not true…their are a few lucky ones and good for them. not sure it it is ignorance,greed or just plain selfishness but i see no decency in MR and PY. it is all about them. they have no ideas so they blame the president (who is a good and decent person) they hate everything about the good in normal people. they are a disgrace to our entire nation. they have no shame or integrity. is that ignorance or what?

  20. that is republican talk. no sense of empathy except for your self. the sad part of people like yourself is you are too ignorant and uneducated to know right from wrong. claim to be god like and yet nothing about who you are resembles what the teachings of christ are. always someones elses fault. try looking in the mirror

  21. see you have to respect the president even if you dont share his point of view. you are making him and the people a target when u play games. ask our military who feel the same. do you know the code of honour and how it is spelled out 4 ya. left right left

  22. i believe the reason that the republicans on this site comment is because they are just like the post governor. it is always about blaming and not looking in the mirror. i see it with my own friends. no compassion…reason they do not like helping others is because it may cost them a penny. when i look back in time, i have to laugh of all the times they had no money or left their purses at home. CHEAP when it comes to others.

  23. At least Reagan was a decent actor as president= no tax raises…. Bob Dole =I will raise taxes! Reagan gets elected & RAISES TAXES! Same with GHW Bush!

  24. I really like the way these folks think. I’ve been saying, since Romney came on the scene, “Look-out, this guy is on his own agenda and NO ONE else matters to him. This article should be a “wake-up call” to everyone.
    I truly can’t believe that there are so many Republicans who are BLIND to what this man says or does…OR, and I really shudder to think this is true, these poeple are just plain Stupid – which makes them act like sheep, to follow the leader, even over a path to their
    own destruction. Either way – it is a poor way to live.

    • Republican operatives do not intend for Romney to be anything other than an image figure. That’s what they do. They select actors, and sons of successful men, and war “heroes”, and then, they tell him what to do, when, and how. This time, they installed the poster child of the new GOP as the Veep, who has crafted no legislation in all his years in the House, who projects the image of “intelligence” when he has the same narrow rigid ideology that will secure the base, but, they will tell him what to do as well, thinking they have the potential of 4 to 15 years of “rule”.

      I am of the opinion that if they can use voter suppression to seize an election; degrade the credit rating of the country; they can instigate a foreign policy crisis, leading it from behind, if you will, to pull it out of the strategy pocket as a last ditch effort two months before an election. Follow the money. The known actors seem like they could be associates of one who runs gambling casinos, prostitution rings, and international intrigues that are dicey……I have also noticed how everything they have accused others of, especially the President, we end up seeing them doing or have done. If there is anything “unAmerican” going on, any “sympathizing of terrorists”, I know where we should look.

      The GOP is now beholden to some of the darkest forces in this country: multimillionaires and billionaires, each with their own agendas.

  25. I really feel sorry for Mitt Romney. He wants to be President so badly that he will do and
    say anything to get elected. Maybe he will get elected and then he will find out just how
    difficult a job it is to be President of the US. It is so easy to critisize others if you have not
    walked in their shoes. I think he would be better off if he would just let the President handle
    things for now. If Romney becomes President, then he can handle these world problems.

  26. the anti-christ romney has to be the biggest JACK-BUTT there is some one tell him if he gose to the middle east now he would win the house send that evil lieing POS over there if we are lucky bins buddy will catch him . but thy know what if thy wanted a ransom for him that thy would have to pay the USA to take that idiot back

  27. will some one shot this anti-christ romney and do the world a favor . and as for the mighty mouth ding dong John McCain id bet when he was a presoner or war he was telling the guards and rating out the others so he could get an extra peice of bread . and ill bet he had a lot of the guards as boy-freinds he,d bend over for then and show them what a real happy guys butt was like from the USA . what a bunch of idiots in the GOP thy dont know there butt,s from their elbows . and you real have to give the dumb butt credit to the ding dongs that keep voteing them into office

    • Your remarks are unsavory and not the opinion of most posters to this sight. We do not shoot people we disagree with in America.

  28. I concluded some time ago that the man had, not a flawed character, but no character. This latest incident causes me to wonder if he may have been complicit in triggering this series of events in the Middle East. Yes, that is correct; I would put nothing past this man and his colleagues.

    Everything he has said and done since the release of his first statement, which he could not wait to release until the day after 9/11 but instead “jumped the gun” and released it on the night of 9/11, has seemed even more programmed and rehearsed than usual. He seems too glib before these cameras. Can anyone be that insensitive, without the common sense to do what so many others have done that it is the norm, to hold your tongue in time of danger and crisis? Can anyone not have the common decency to offer a public word of sincere condolence and sorrow at the loss of an Ambassador who was doing so much to establish a good relationship between the US and Libya, and his colleagues? It would appear that he is either inhuman and lacks normal emotional instinct or he knew it was coming and nothing was as important as the opportunity this strategy presented.

    He is surrounded by shady donors and known political deviants, who stoop at nothing. If his political Party can spend 4 years doing nothing to help their country recover and stabilize and do everything to make certain it fails, financially and emotionally, why would they not have planned this strategy as a last ditch effort to pull out of their playbook in case it was needed in the last months of the campaign to target the President’s strongest suit, foreign policy?

    I know my theory may be far fetched because, after all, he botched up the offer of a cookie, answering a polite question about the London Olympics, insulting the Palestinian people, and accused some of his own people as wanting “hand outs and freebies” because we want healthcare access and public education, etc.

    He doesn’t know, instinctively, how to accept an unwanted cookie on the campaign trail and eat it gracefully, or decline it, politely; he doesn’t realize that all he had to say in London was it is a huge job to host an Olympic games and everything looks so nice; he doesn’t understand that it is more important for us to judge him not for him to judge us.

    The reason he comes across as a “robot” is because he lacks character. No prior experience can prepare a would be President for everything that comes before him. The Character of the man is what will determine the value, judgement, process, and the character is formed by life experiences and what the person did with those life experiences.

    Romney did not have many significant life experiences. He led a very sheltered life, actually. He is not the kind of adult son one would expect to issue from a man like George Romney and a woman like Lenore Romney, and that’s a study of it’s own. His entire life has been that of a parasite, an opportunistic virus, best managed with containment. It is potentially terminal to let it out of the confines of it’s shelter, where it has done enough damage to this country already, economically.

    It would be comical, if not so threatening. The man who lies every time he opens his mouth and will not disclose his tax returns tells us, not asks us, tells us to trust him, he who has shown not one ounce of character.

    • You are not alone in seeing a possible connection between the disgusting film trailer that enraged Muslims worldwide and the unscrupulous financiers and would-be kingmakers operating Romney’s campaign. Not a lot of money or brains would be required to set some sort of plot, like the following FICTION, in motion:

      First, it would not have cost much (given their millions) for Romney’s wealthy supporters to have underwritten this inflammatory hate product (it’s producer is destitute), to have paid off a few instigators to stir up Muslims worldwide when they see it, and then to have given Romney and Ryan scripts intended to fire up voters in the GOP’s far-right base, who will eagerly accept the hobgoblin that President Obama himself is responsible for this crisis.

      Second, Romney’s first comment about the crisis–a lie–upbraided President Obama for seeking to calm devout Muslims enraged by the content of the film. Romney has never disavowed the film content unequivocally, perhaps because he is insensitive to the provocation it represents in the Muslim world, or perhaps because he does not want to break faith with voters on the extremist fringe of the Republican party who are just fine with hurling the most vicious insults imaginable at Muslims and others they consider to be their inferiors. Many of these same partisans hate President Obama implacably and are convinced he is a Muslim. Those running the Romney campaign see these emotions as low hanging fruit to be gathered at will.

      Third, unrest in the Middle East would further the goals of Sheldon Adelson, who openly has stated he wants to see the U.S. go to war with Iran on Israel’s behalf, and the Koch brothers (as well as other oil millionaires here and overseas) whose profits skyrocket whenever unrest breaks out in the Middle East. And let’s not forget the American military-industrial complex, whose interests are also served when the United States is drawn into conflict overseas. To these remote players, the beauty of a crisis such as this one is that those who die will probably be in the Middle East or, unlike their own privileged sons and daughters, engaged in the U.S. military (never mind that the troups could very likely be sons and daughters of the very Muslim-hating racists in the Republican base whose votes Romney’s caretakers hope to win the film and aftermath). In this COMPLETELY FICTIONAL political scenario, all the parties that set this plot in motion can hide, while blaming the whole thing on Barack Obama.

  29. This week has been a Sarah Palin moment. People around the country, including leading republicans, have realized that he is definitely not qualified to be president, and sorrowfully realize they have lost again. See “Game Changer” on HBO and you will see where they are today.

  30. Anyway, I think everyone is looking in all the wrong places at all the wrong people. We should be looking at the agendas of his donors and that will tell us what the policies will be on everything from foreign policy to taxation to climate control, energy, etc.

    The only relevance Romney has is that he is the name on the ballot.

    • Good point. So, who, pritthee is bankrolling Obama?

      The broader issue is that to get elected these days takes almost half a BILLION – and only some kernels of truth. The systems’ broken.

      Our best, last recourse is November 6th – Vote.

    • I think the construct of your sentence calls for the use of the past tense…. as in “uttered”, not “utter”. Another one sentence display of the strong correlation between simple minded, ignorant hatred and lack of education.

        • Even if that were the case, he would still be several pegs up on you. You don’t seem to have ever used the brain you were born with. I’m giving you the benefit of the doubt here, that you were born with one. I think its more likely that there is a vacuum between your ears where a brain should reside, making you the perfect Faux News clone.

          • Hmm typical left wing nut job can’t argue the point just resort to ad hominems. Today is Sunday so make sure you worship you messiah barak

    • I agree with Jim-n-Panama. For someone who claims to have been educated…I would like to know where. One should not shoot off one’s mouth before being informed.

  31. At the morning after press conference, Romney could barely contain his glee at what he obviously saw as a gotcha moment to strike at the President. He could have cared less about any of our comrades overseas. I can’t wait to be rid of this vile, evil man.

  32. There is one item that many people have forgotten and that is that Mitt Romney became the presidential candidate for the Republican Party by default. No one really wanted him, then suddenly the billionaires who run big business thought better of it as now they have someone to do their bidding. Also, the reason they want to get rid of “Obamacare” is so that the insurance companies can dictate how things will be run in the healthcare industry again because as we all know, they are big business as are the drug companies. So, if Mitt gets in there, we are at the mercy of the insurance companies again. If he gets elected, the only ones who will benefit are the wealthy and big business. So, if you are middle class, elderly, or disabled, you will have to figure out how to exist and will be left holding the tax burden to fund their lifestyles and businesses. There are some people out there who need to wake up and realize what Mitt and his cronies are really standing for.

  33. Mitt have no idea about what the Middle East issues are about. All he knows is that his Tax free US Money are tied up in several Overseas Banks and he want to be sure that he can get to it without problems. I’m so angry he almost excited even more violence in the Middle-East by speaking and not being careful of what he is talking about. Added insult he did not even have the respect to attend the Welcome home Ceremony for our Fallen Peace Keeping Angels. Even after he said; the parents of one victim gave him permission to represent her. Mitt is a total disgraced to run for the highest office of this country. so sad.

  34. Republicans are coming to his side. That is a bad sign. But his weakness is he does not think before he speaks. He does not understand the middle classes plight. His up bring does not allow him to understand what normal people go thru day to day. Nor does he understand normal common people. His motto, if you want it , buy it, with no concern whats so ever. I have the money . So buy it. To hell with what is right!!!! I am Milt Romney. Stop me if you can. Ha !!!!

  35. Want to talk about Obama’s character weaknesses? All he’s ever done for a living is take someone’s money that they made, and give it to someone else- with a cut taken out for his union buddies. He doesn’t know how to make money, or create jobs. As evidenced by the GDP of this country. You poor people, you don’t even see what’s coming if he gets re-elected. Want to know? Just as Medvedev in Russia.

  36. Forgot to mention the apology orignated in the embassy,i.e. from those whose lives were at stake and it was issued 4 hours before ther rioting started, the apology was for the film! But beyond that Romney seems AMAZED that ANYONE should ask him to explain himself. He thinks we should be grateful for his efforts and JUST KNOW that he is the better man. HAHAHAHAHA

    • Selfish? Then why has he given a much higher percentage of his income to charity than either Obama or Biden? And what has he done or not done in his life that leads you to believe he is ” incincere”(sic) about anything?

      • That you know of…..He still has not shown ONE complete income tax, so how do you know? And his main charity is the Mormon church, don’t be fooled, they are a business with a POLE…(NOT A CROSS) at the top. He is just changing pockets on that one my friend.

  37. There’s a fundamentally flawed premise in this argument: people never change. What this article would lead you to believe is that teachers, social workers, universities, religion, government are all on a fools errand. People never change, so why bother trying and why bother giving a second chance.

    Bullies will always be bullies, good kids are always going to be good kids.

    I’ve done things I’ve regretted, but I tried not to do them again.

    Perhaps you’ve had the same or different experience.

    We’re the hard core getting out there – please encourage everyone you know to vote November 6th.

  38. What is even darker is that Rassmussen Polls are utilized to justify that Romney is ahead in the polls.

    Darker side?

    Maybe he and karl rove have employed Rassmussen to create false polls.

    Rassmussens done it before…

    Do a google search..

  39. Oh–by the way…if anyone mentions “Gateway pundit” as a rebuttal, know this;

    Gateway Pundit” is a “news aggregator” , primarily tasked to discredit Obama.
    It sifts though anti-Obama articles and posts them as fact.
    They dont fact check.
    Their George Orwell motto is; ” where hope finally made a comeback.” That state means ment that they really mean the opposite.

    “hope finally made a comeback ” is realized when Obama is re-elected.

  40. His character was obvious when he recruited a band of toughies and held down a co-student and cut his hair off, because he was from California and gay. …He hasn’t changed a whit.

  41. my opionion of mitt Romney is he have no moral values, he will lie when there is little reasons to do so! his training on how to go in and destroy a company make a profit for himself without regard for those that he have put out of work, leave him as a ruthless selfish animal, and now he bring those same tactics to the american people, divide destroy, and conquer, without regards of the
    people he will hurt if elected such people are beasts and usually destroy themselves!

  42. Very aptly presented. Truthful in every aspect I am acquainted with. I simply cannot imagine Willard being the person whose decisions could launch nuclear weapons. Certainly a very, very frieghtning thought.

    • He is a CHICKEN HAWK….I never trust them. Especially a HYPOCRITICAL VIETNAM DRAFT DODGER like Romney. They will send everyone elses sons and daughters to war in a blink of an eye.

  44. Most remarkable is the fact that Romney spoke from the safety and comfort of his yacht while our diplomats on the ground were in grave danger. Equally important, the statement from our embassy in Cairo was simply a common-sense effort to chill out angry mobs in order to prevent violence. The statement didn’t work, but it was nonetheless a totally common-sense thing to do. Apparently Romney doesn’t recognize common sense when he sees it, perhaps because he hasn’t any.

  45. Questioning someone’s patriotism, like the left always does, is what’s contemptible, Cynthia. Romney criticized our Egyptian embassy’s response to the attacks, which addressed the movie that supposedly inspired the violence, rather than those who committed the violence. The president is responsible for our foreign embassy’s. So where does the buck stop, Cynthia? Harry Truman? George Bush?

    • Are you serious? The GOP are the ones who historically use (abuse) the notion of Patriotism to suit their purpose. You want an example of a Republican twisting patriotism for his own gain? Read the article above. lol Romney heard news that there was anti-US rioting; and the first thing he does is join in. In my opinion – Romney was the one who sided against the US. It wasn’t Obama.

      • Joined in what-the rioting? You’re an idiot. Is that the only example you can come up with? Romney is encouraged to criticize our foreign policy- Obama had no problem with it in 2007. It is not patriotic to stifle our First Amendment- which is exactly what Obama and Clinton are doing. Take a civics class.

  46. It’s a matter of politics as opposed to statesmanship, isn’t it? Or opportunism as opposed to commitment? Dedication? Integrity? Other noble characteristics we like to think are embodied in our presidents? We do like our presidents, or any leader, to embody such ideals, don’t we?

    I don’t see such a capacity in Mr. Romney. I think the guy who said he is the worst possible candidate the GOP could float got it right. And I don’t think he was talking about policy.

    I recently heard someone say something to the effect that we meet ourselves when we are challenged. Seeking our presidential office, as Mr. Romney is now doing, certainly must be the greatest challenge a person faces up to that point in their life.. I think, then, Mr. Romney has met himself. Now we have met him, too.

  47. Romeny stuck by what he’d said and never apologized for what he’d said and that says that he meant what he said. How sad. This warped man will do anything to gain an advantage. Anyone who support him should be ashamed that they are a part of this dispicible, narcisstic, impotent failed businessman, plight to win a political fight!

  48. Oh my goodness! Did he criticize the guy who’s failing at everything? Oh noes! Doesn’t he know that he’s supposed to join the sycophants in the media with 24/7 adoration. Doesn’ t he realize that everyone is supposed to act as Obama’s shield bearers and water carriers? The horror! Obama could … lose.

  49. I believes Romneys ruthless business side has reared its ugly head in the eyes of those who are paying close attention to this election.
    I mean, in business he exported “Our” jobs to oversea places including China yet speaks patriotically about our need to cut our dependency on foreign imports !?
    I wonder if those flags he used as backdrop in his recent press conferences are made in China or some other foreign country?
    It seems that Mitt will say almost anything short of breaking the law to gain a political advantage in this race!
    Though this might showcase his “great business savy” it is not the time or place for this type
    gamesmanship in America. We had 8 years of that under the last Republican MBA President!

  50. I can’t believe that so many posters here actually believe that Obama cares about them. What has he done to show it? I am not a Romney lover, but I truly believe that he’ll do a better job as president. The fact is, our economy and our country are going down the tubes with frightening speed, and you can’t get away with blaming it all on Bush anymore. He is long gone. Actions speak louder than words. Our government works for us. Our leaders are not saviors to be adored and defended at all costs. If they don’t work out, they need to go.

    • If Romney’s plans are what they seem to be, you are looking at a much worse economy than this one. Obama put the floor needed not to dig deeper but Romney isn’t going to save this economy. It’s not about worship, it’s about reality. You may not like it, but a lot of Obama’s policies have helped a slow recovery begin. It was foolish to expect that there would be a fast bounce once he took office.
      Also, there are still some things we can blame on Bush as his policies incited long-term damage effect that the country is still trying to recuperate from. The debt and deficit being the main show.

      • I don’t see where any of Obama’s policies have improved the economy, if fact, they seem to be inhibiting growth and doing nothing for job creation.

    • Our economy is “going down the tubes with frightening speed.” Well then why are the housing prices returning in strength and why did the DOW hit a 4 year high? Those “Job Creators” who were so fragile we had to keep coddling them, and still are……Where ARE all those jobs THEY were supposed to create. Intead they sitting on their A$$es counting their wealth as it grows.

  51. There are some people who will say Romney and his actions was justified.They will blame OBAMA for the weather and I’m sure somewhere someone has done this. Some do not want OBAMA because he is black (there I said It) and others truly believe that Romney is a better candidate. For whatever reason, the people who vote Romney will be sorry because this country will go into such a tailspin into oblivion the world has never seen or experienced. But, it will be too late for them to say, sorry, I was wrong. Sadly, Romney will be none the poorer for his idiocy and we will be paying for him for the rest of our lives.

    • Not the most important thing…..But Romney apparently thought it was important, as he did break his own rule to not get Politcal on SEPT 11. But then he jumped when he thought there was a chance to “down” Obama re the attack. JUMPED TOO and inserted his size 12’s right in his mouth. The MOST IMPORTANT thing re Romney, did he look Presidential in his response as a canditate? Anwer…..HELL NO !!!!!!

  52. ok here is what is crass…YOU ARE. Evidently you must of smoked allot when you were younger and its effects are what we expected. very limited cognitive ability. Your memory what it left of it needs to be refreshed to when OBAMA IDIOT was running for president. If you call yourself a reporter have the integrity to be a reporter and not a slobbering flack

  53. Romney is just so stiff & walks like he’s in a hurry, he is not ready for PBO wrath on the debates, watch see how romney tries to change that for his purpose, he has no clue of how to keep us safe, or anything on foreign affairs, has no clue on nothing just keep lying, he likes to hear himself lie, he’s lied so much until he has start believing his lies, along with his partner in crime Ryan. Romney is all about self & doing favors for his rich friends, that all he knows rich people. He has no clue of strugles.he or his wife when was the last time MS ANN went to a shelter or soup kitchen to help out, she’s never been in a cultured community, what jobs do romney’s son’s hold how many applicants have they hired? or helped, I’ve heard of none, if I could have ele, vators for my cars, & a home built for them man wow got money & don’t know what to do with it, but will keep us paying higher taxes for task carsthe rich, it’s time for romney to just get honest, but that will never happen, he is not trust worthy, compulsive lier, thief, racist & I pity folks who are following this demon-well we know ” the devil loves company” for the republican party, congress needs to be voted out-I hope the voters vote every republican out of office when time comes.

    • “Romney is just so stiff & walks like he’s in a hurry..” Laughing my head off, my sister said practically the same about his walk “walks like a little girl”. lol. He is in a hurry to check on his money he has banked outside of the USA!!!

  54. Mitt the twit’s over-inflated ego demands that he do or say anything to become ruler of the U.S. and his arrogant young running mate lyin’ Ryan lacks any acquaintance with TRUTH!

  55. Romney doesn’t know his left hand from his left, as he change with the flow; he goes with what he sees as convenient for him. He is buying himself a ticket to the WH. So, if he can use his money for buying the presidencyof USA, he can surely pay more taxes, too. (his rich friends, too=rep. cronies)
    He sees…, forgetting Israel, as a means to making his mark in History, when the Middle East Blows it from the map and then Romney comes ‘in’- with a nuclear bomb- to clean his conscience and his bad judgement. WW3.
    He is NOt what we need! Must we forget he was against the auto bailout, homes, banks, small bussiness, etc?. He has NO CHARACTER He is out of touch and being a mormom is not what this is about/not religion. It is his real life dream of GREED FOR POWER= by a man w/o integrity, propelled by his grandious self notion that he is above The People.

    • You go, Bob! Tell us everything you hate. How about Jesus? How about……… Muhammad? Careful now. Freedom of speech is limited now.

    • That’s OK….BOB he hates you too. He just spewed out his disdain for 47% of all Americans…..that probably covers you too.

  56. The only lack of character here is that of the author of this article Cynthia Tucker. It’s unfortunate that people like her, who really don’t understand what’s going on in the world, must turn to personal attacks of good men to appear important. I pity her and those who sympathize with her. Right now our nation needs a great man of wonderful moral character and integrity to help us survive the collapse that is coming… and that man is Mitt Romney!

    • No attack necessary ….. Just let Romney undo himself….as for good men of character and integrety, hahhahhha it’s NOT Romney. HE is a money grubbing greedy, “say anything” guy. You need to read Mark 12:41-44. That will give you a picture of Romney.

      • Sorry but you are misinformed. I know Mitt Romney personally and he is one of the finest men I have ever associated with. He cares deeply for America and all our citizens. He is genuine, brilliant, principled, honest, patriotic, straightforward, and a true gentleman. Unlike many of the people posting on this site. Captain Jim Green

  57. The only dark character is the fraud in the White House and his name is Barrack Osma Bin Obama! Vote him out and vote IN Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan!

    • Is that meant as a racist slur……? You ignorant bigot, if you dislike people of different cultures religions and races then may I suggest a move on your part. There is plenty of ethnic cleansing still going on in other parts of the world. Careful though, you may end up being the pursued instead of the pursuer.

  58. Yeah, yeah………… you can’t pump up the Marxist’s record of accomplishments because it’s all bad so you do the usual leftist thing – try character assassination on the opposition. You want dark? Look at the incumbent. And I don’t mean the color of his skin.

    • No character assasination necessary …. to watch Romney fail at politics and too see how little he cares about people=Americans ….you just have to wait a very little while. As for The President of the United States he has ordered the succesful killing of more Al Queda leaders than GW did in all his years in office. For the first time our nation has a national health care plan. What has Willard done….nothing….but line his OWN pockets over and over no matter who gets hurt, that wouldn’t change if he, GOD FORBID, got elected.

      • Hey JHG! Good to see you’re up taking a swing at these idiots. Is it just me or have you noticed that over the past three weeks ago or so, that these trolls have come out of the woodwork with all manner of deceit and disinformation? It’s either a couple of guys, with lots of aliases, or a bunch of lemmings paid to post. Most of these posters don’t seem to be disappointed former Obama voters trying to make sense of the election, but low-level Republican operatives lurking around on Obama-leaning websites looking to inflame, rather than educate or inform. Have the Talipublicans gotten that desperate? Probably…

        • Yeah they are desperate now. Like rats on a sinking ship. Even lots of Republicans are taking swipes at the guy, because they know unless he can “Out Debate” Obama…..AS IF! he is done. While the trolls are going crazy with rhetoric on all forward leaning sites/threads. I like to go on their sites too….man does the name calling get UGLY. To me it is fun….I have a twisted sense of humor. What REALLY kills them is I will defend their right to say the meanist nastiest things, but I will definitely let them know I disagree and why.

  59. It scares me to even think that this lying, greedy bastard is the best the republicans can come up with to oppose Obama….and what scares me even more is that there are bunch of Americans out there that think Romney cares about them!!!! Sick!

  60. I wish news outlets will now apologize for making ron paul out to be the most extreme candidate in the race. This only proves what weve been saying: romney and his neocon friends are somewhere to the right of mussolini. Ron paul, for all his crankiness couldnt possibly top that.

  61. You have to hate America to vote for Obama. He has done nothing but tear this country apart. 4 more years of this admin. and we’ll be like Greece. Obama hasn’t a clue on how to run anything let alone a country. He is an empty chair!!!

    • Which demigogue did you get that one from? FEAR …FEAR….FEAR….MORE FEAR. Was it Hannnity, OREEEEEaaalllly, or Limblah….blah….blah….”wait let me take a pill and a shot of booze”…o.k…blah…blah….blah?

  62. This is the devil that many want to run this country. Romney cares for no one but his own greed and power. He has no compassion for the poor, or anyone that is not rich and white.

  63. Maybe the tragic deaths at our embassy could have been prevented, had our campaigner in chief hadn’t boasted about killing Osama 21 times at the democratic convention, further inflaming an anti-American mood.

  64. Spreading lies about Romney won’t make Obama look better. The man is a phoney and an abject failure. He’s ruining the nation and would love to destroy the entire middle class and make all Americans slaves. Any candidate endorsed by CPUSA and other Marxist or Marxist front groups the way Obama is should scare the shit out of all normal people.

  65. Romney is the best that the Republicans could come up with; they just don’t have anyone superior to Obama;that is why they’re going to lose!

  66. I can see it now. Romney as President. Drop that bomb and we’ll talk about it later. Well, he drops the bomb every time he opens his mouth. And don’t forget – all you voters out there, 47% of you that are bums, derelicts, parasites. Sucking the money from the rich. Biting the hand that BLEEDS you. Vote for him and you’ll need the Middle East to come over here to free YOU. Remember that when you vote.

    • nuts… I’m fairly certain that you have chosen the appropriate alias. Now go back to memorizing the writings of Marx.

      Have a nice day!

      “You cannot make the poor man rich by making the rich man poor.” – Winston Churchill

  67. Do not agree with this article. We all have short commings but Obama is totally wrong about foreign affairs. When our President bows to a Shiek that is a sure sign he is Muslim. And Bush & Clinton set things up for the capture of Ben Laden; all the work was done by these two guys before Obama got any where need the office. Romney will do the office of the U.S. President justice & look the part. He knows more then appears & will get us back on track. There are too many lies going around about both parties. GROW UP PEOPLE !!! LilBit

  68. When Mitt Romney is smiling, it’s all an act. When he’s lashing out and angry, he’s being a bully, and he’s not acting. They never change, and at the heart of every bully, you’ll find a coward. The real Mitt Romney.

  69. Come on, let’s get “Real”……….Obama goes to campaign in Las Vegas while the blood is still wet on his U.S. Ambassador to Libya’s body, and that is not reason for Romney to speak up against Obama’s apologetic response? Obama is a narcissist deluxe, and is a colossal, inexperienced fraud!

  70. thank you mr romney for your honesty unlike our uncaring president who doesnt have a clue where to take our country except through the gates of hell. Mr Romney you are the next president poised to take our country back to the very top of the world and you must stand by your statements bcuz they are the honest truth most people depends on the government too much

  71. If Romney’s bullying behavior in school can be overlooked, it’s only reasonable to do so IF he doesn’t keep on bullying as an adult. Instead, he has gone down several notches in the scale of despicable behavior, from teen bully to adult liar and aristocratic elitist who can write off half our population at a stroke as people who just “don’t count.”

    If you bully as a teen and LEARN a lesson from it, that’s when it should be overlooked. NOT when you augment it as an adult. He’s every bit still the bully he was in school. Worse.

    He’s a very smart man, and well educated, but neither of these has any solid bearing on character. Poor people with little education can be very wise at times, and highly educated folks can be neocons. Character is molded outside of social and financial status, as well as outside of the person’s schooling (or lack of it). The only value a good education has on character is that it gives you much less excuse to be callous, greedy and a liar.

    One of the first things he’d do as president is make war on Iran. He’d also be a busy little bee trying to destroy our long-thwarted health care reform, without even giving the government any time to smooth out the wrinkles in it. How DARE the American people think that government should manage health care? He feels the same way about Social Security; how DARE we think government should “meddle” with our retirement? Except for the fact that it works – and has worked beautifully for decades. He’ll give much bigger tax breaks to the wealthy and decimate all of our social programs that really HELP people – and call it austerity. He’ll give us both a debt and a deficit that even Bush couldn’t have dreamed of. The end result is his goal: to destroy the middle class. Utterly. That’s how the neocons hope to totally take over the country; when it is so down it has no way to resist.

    I think the sign at an Occupy protest kind of said it all: “That yellow stuff trickling down on you is NOT gold.”

    In any democracy, it is the middle class that makes it stable. Romney knows this, and plans to destabilize our democracy by destroying the middle class. It was Bush’s goal, too, and he almost pulled it off. Romney will succeed where Bush failed, and he’ll be able to do it in just one term, too.

    He talks about people who’d vote for Obama no matter what? How about the people in his own “base” who will suffer from the above acts a President Romney would enact, but who will vote for him anyway, no matter what, because it means he’d be getting that “N” out of the White House. Something is REALLY wrong when you can get people to vote for a candidate that even those in his own party dislike, and whom they can have a certainty will cause them great harm. Smacks of brainwashing. And with Rove involved, it shouldn’t surprise anyone.

    All we can hope for is that the majority of Americans DO see what this dude is up to and want no part of it. With the evangelical right growing like mad, such people aren’t likely to remain a majority much longer. The fundies will then rule – or try to. But the neocons have the money, and will probably tell them to take a walk – after getting their votes, of course.

    Frankly, I don’t know which would be worse as America’s “ruling elite”: the fundies or the neocons. I don’t want to even think of it, but in this election, there’s no choice but to do so.

    We can’t let the oligarch/plutocrat/fundamentalist/ignorant-and-proud sector gain control. They constitute the lowest common denominators in our country, and the damage they could cause, in even 4 years, would be crippling. That means we have to kick out ALL Republicans, at ALL levels of government, until they decide that their tactics are beginning to gain less and less, and maybe choose to get responsible again.

    I know, dream on.

  72. So people don’t like the way Romney is running his campaign, but have no objections on how Obama is ruining this country?

    Democrats have to ask themselves, what next?

    Step 1: Tax the “rich” to keep the aid checks flowing…..
    What next? What happens when that will not cover the dependencies of the masses?

    Step 2: Tax the middle class to keep the aid checks flowing…..
    ok, again What next? That money will not be enough, and now rich people are now middle class and the middle is now poor?
    What next?

    Step 3: Nobody left to tax?
    But hey at least you would now have closer to 75-80% dependent on handouts.


  73. what a load of garbage from a very obvious adoring fan of obama’s…I’m not impressed professor…you’re a liar and you have no self respect!

  74. Ms. Tucker, you have again shown your lack of character, you have placed politics, a racial and maybe religious bias above common sense. We have a president who has lied and hidden his past, he was never vetted, what he, and the media, claim is his past is a series of lies. He won’t even help his family, half brother, aunt. But you and the media defend him. You and the media then turn over every rock to destroy Romney, Sarah Palin, McCain and West. People who after all your attacks can still stand very tall because all you have really shown is your own hate, lack of ethics and character.

  75. Romney was absolutely correct. He was the only one looking Presidential. You obviously know nothing about the man. “Socio-path”? that’s Obama! “Shallow”? That’s Obama! “Will do anything to look good politically”? That’s Obama! “Low life”. That’s Obama. Are you Obamaites sure you know anything about your idol? His only accomplishments have been to methodically destroy the U.S.A. from within. Get a clue!

  76. Typical Obama propaganda. Blame the other side, accept no responsibility for your own failures. Here is a question. Is Amercia , as a society on the right track or the wrong track? Look around you, the answer is so obvious, even a blind man could see it

  77. Excellent article. John McCain is all for war. Maybe he should pay more attention to the commission of which he heads-the International Republican Institute which allowed Blackwater to be paid millions in taxpayer money- millions of dollars mismanaged and given out as payments for unbid contracts to the security firm that was to provide security in Iraq.

  78. I tend to agree with this article. Character is partially the result of facing adversity and of engaging in a self-reflective process while dealing with this adversity. Building charater is a life long process. (I speak as a psychologist who works with many men and women who have faced the great adverstity of severe mental illness (both rich and poor) and grown as human beings do to self reflection–with limited or no societal support–part of the 47% –along with many elderly institutionalized adults). This process of building character requires self-reflection. A self-reflective person can see himself for his faults as well as his strengths. Character requires patience and listening. A man of charater usually does not see the opponent as completely wrong but listens, processes and integrates into one’s own experience the other’s perspective before responding.

    Mr. Romney you do not appear to display these characteristics. It appears that when you want to win you will do so at all costs…of course no apparent cost to you. Recently, I read a biography of Lincoln (a Republican). It was clear that he went into politics for a purpose…it was his vocation and something he aspired to out of a need to make a difference; not for power alone.

    Mr. Romney, what is your vocation? Do you have one or is it simply making money and having power? Please, give me a reason to vote for you. Explain to me why politics is your vocation. And at the same time explain to me why your wife has a Swiss Bank Account and you have one in the Caymon Islands. Do you pay taxes on these accounts?

    Impulsive responding can lead to devastating results. Power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely. I want a man or woman of character in the White House. Not someone who can take on any character at any time just to win. Wanting to win at all costs calls up for me the characteristics of (some) CEOs who cash out on companies (to win) and leave employees without insurance and with no pensions–There is a reptilian quality to this with no empathy for the human costs. This is certainly not appropriate for a President. Please give me a reason to vote for you Mr. Romney. Prove to me that you are a man of character; who has real ideas not just those that work for the moment. Anyone can donate millions of dollars to a charity and use it as a tax write off but that does not prove that they have any real character.

    Best to You,

    Dr. Diana Semmelhack

  79. in reply to faster,You are an idiot. im sure you find that hard to belive. you do know what oboma is about. and thats ok with you? this country has no future if he is re-elected .he wasnt able to turn it around in four years as he promised. but he ran it further into the ground. he did put us trillons more in debt . so its worse than the problem he inherited four years ago. how he going to fix it now? he dosent want to fix it. go see the movie 2016

  80. Ann Romney says she is worried about Romney’s mental health … he could be on way to a mental breakdown. Frankly Paul Ryon is a sociopath far worse than Romney. He even used his mom to win few votes. What kind of a man does that.

    • Right Charles, and would you say that Mrs. Ryan is probably a typical white woman, just like Barry Sotero said about the white woman who raised him. Do you recall? P.S. You didn’t have a Mom whom you respected, did you? I did. Just about all I can say is… Man, did you miss out!!!!

  81. @IGT Buddy you live in a Fox bubble and even they realize Obama will get his second term so you can go cry as much you wish. If you think things are bad they were far worse under Bush when the stock market had plunged to about 6,000, it has more than doubled under Obama. When Bush left the banking market were collasping, auto industry was dead the list goes on. You are to blind to see that. Obama killed Osama and ended the war in Iraq that would have continued under that senile old man McCain. Romney will make things worse by giving more tax breaks to the very wealthy … he says he will eliminate some tax deductions but wont say which like he wont show his tax returns. Would you buy a used car from someone like that. If you will than you are a first class idiot — i guess you go back to your village where they are missing their idiod.

    • These unforeseen-by-many booby traps were carefully put in place by Hil and company, while her unsuspecting Bill was having a little fun in the Oval Office, remember? We don’t know the half of what really went on in that administration. If the White House walls could talk……

  82. With Willard delicate mental state, he cannot handle the Presidency!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He will lucky if he can handle the debate!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • You undoubtedly have partaken of the Chicago Alinskyite messages from Hil, Bill, Bar-Eliam, listra, Barry Sotero, ad nauseum and swallowed hook, line and sinker as we say in The South. If I were you, I would worry about the sinker part, because you will be the first to go in their camp. They don’t really need such hangers on since they are entities unto themselves, if you know what I mean. No need to ask me for confirmation… just read the ObamaCare Health Act.

  83. I will tell you what is dark is these dark people all being so racist such as Cynthia Tucker, Mitt could be Christ reincarinated and she would say he is dark. Can’t stand people like this, racist that is

  84. Cynthia Tucker: All you have done with this atrocious piece of “lit” is to cement my vote for Mitt Romney. How far off the mark are you? 180 degrees and an infinity away from the bull’s eye. You just reminded me that I better not miss my date with the voting booth, as though I might, #1. to insure my conscience will be clear, in order to #2. put all my strength and energy into supporting Mitt Romney and his chosen advisors in the coming years whatever is the outcome of the election. In short, with your piece we are assured of what we are up against. Also, no surprise, your racism is glaringly obvious Cynthia Tucker.

  85. This is GREAT!!! this shows that the Obama campaign has absolutely nothing in Mitt. They have to fabricate an emotional story of how Mitt is bloodthirsty…LMAO! Truth is, Obama did not properly protect his gun running Ambassador, who got pinched when asking for our automatic weapons back. Why else would an American Ambassador not be traveling in an armored car, or have his own security detail???

    Spin away, only an idiot would believe the Obama propaganda equivalent only to Soviet journalism.

    • Obama got more than y’all think he can send y’all to hell but for what! Y’all doing it to yourself so I’m happy! May god be with you all! Oh Yea vote for obama ! U just can’t play n don’t expect to be played baxk !

  86. I thought that the ambassador was killed in a terrorist attack? I had no idea he was killed in a peaceful protest that unfortunately tipped towards violence. I do understand that folks in the Middle East often just happen to have RPGs and AK47s at the ready. Plus they do not like being called terrorists either!! So does this make Mitt complicit in the unfortunates demises too?

  87. Amazing! Romney used facts which the President does not understand because he lives in a bubble protected by the media. Our country cannot afford another four years of voting present as a president. Obama has taken four years to pass a medical reform bill which takes money from existing programs and will put the final nail in the economies coffin. Socially, this person is perverse, under his so called leadership he is trying to re-define marriage against the will of the majority of Americans, his policy has also allowed and legalized sodomy and beastiology; that is not normal! He is not enforcing existing laws protecting the traditional view of marriage, and disregards the constitution which he calls outdated. His Unjustive therefore lawless department is allowing guns to walk across the border then tries to blame our constitutional right to possess arms as the cause; why don’t you ask who allowed it to happen, who gave the weapons to the cartels? By the way our country supplies military equipment so that nations can defend themselves form tyrants but we can’t do the same? His economic platform is socialism; take from those that have and give it to those that don’t work, don’t pay taxes, expect free stuff all the time! Really, this is the incentive for those who pay their taxes, give to charity, and provide for their families? What is happening? Obama wants to make government the provider of life itself by regulating every aspect of society; his cronies are doing it in New York! Are you serious? You want to be a slave then move to China! We can still turn this ship around! Vote for a new direction or at least vote because he is not Obama and his policies. Vote to save our Republic!

    • Excellent well-thought out comments!! The only intelligent ones on this page! It is really disheartening to see how many people are being so deeply misled by the media’s obvious bias to a really decent human being and excellent presidential candidate (Romney). This SILLY article is a prime example! More people should re-watch last night’s debate and use their eyes and ears and THINK FOR THEMSELVES instead of relying on the biased news media to tell them how to perceive facts and issues. We have a chance to put the country back on track and pull it out of the economic mire of the last four years, reduce unemployment, and secure long-term stability for our children. It would be foolish to lose this opportunity!

      • I accept that we all change our opinions on issues as we grow older but Mr. Romney switches back and forth on all issues depending upon who he is speaking to or what suits his ambition at the time. I saw today at least 5 different clips of him dramatically and passionately promising his audiences that he would give an across the board 20% tax cut to everyone. That is what adds up to 4.8 Trillion dollars of lost revenue to the government. Then last night he feigned surprise that the President suggested any such thing was part of his economic plan. When it comes to moving business off shore, Mr. Romney while at Bain helped companies do this. It is not illegal. It is simply a fact of what he did in his business. Then last night he feigned surprise when the President mentioned it and joked that if there is such a thing he maybe should get another accountant. I am not taking this from anyone else. I have watched him speak, read articles about him and of course, I have watched the video in which he spoke to people who paid $50K to listen while he told them what he thinks of the 47% of people who “pay no taxes” and think they are “victims”. That 47% includes the elderly who have worked and paid into social security, the handicapped, veterans and the poor who do not make enough to pay federal income tax. Those who are working however, pay payroll taxes. All pay sales taxes when they purchase anything.

        On the tax issue, why do you think he refuses to disclose more returns when other candidates have and when he provided 23 years of returns to McCain so he might be given the position of VP candidate? I have no problem with you supporting him or any other candidate but I do not understand why you would not want to know how he plans to do the things he promised last night. He has not shared that information with the voters including his supporters. He just expects everyone to have faith. That is hard to accept when he changes his mind so often about what he will do. The risk is that when a person such as he appears to be gets into a position of power he will do what suits him, not what he promised he would do.

        • Why does it matter? He followed the rules set out for dividend tax and did not cheat anyone. Why is it that people that are dishonest always expect dishonesty in everyone else and thus see it. Mitt Romney is a very honest and family man with integrity and cares about even you who doesnt like or respect him. He wants you to live a better life. He even wants Obama to live a better life – out of the White House, so he can improve the tax situation, health care, jobs which leads to increased tax revenues – that will give even Obama a better life! Man Obama has really aged and he really didn’t have anything of great value to state, he even sidelined the comments of showering funds to his friends in the new energy sector 🙂

          He expects everyone to have faith like Obama asked and Ronald Reagan. His reputation alone says you of little faith, take a good long look, I’ll do better for you than even your own guy! Enjoy the night and thanks for giving me the opportunity to share.

        • Why don’t you get your facts straight. Bain did send jobs to other countries but it was after Romney was no longer in charge of Bain. Yes he was listed as the CEO but was not functioning as such and his final act at Bain was to retroactively resign from that position as of 1999 when he last did anything with Bain.

  88. -GI JOE
    From what I’ve heard, it’s Romney who wants to cut out existing programs, and what Obama has done is just attempt to compromise with Republicans. I am sure he doesn’t condone bestiality (if that’s what you meant by beastiology?), but what exactly is the problem with sodomy? According to the dictionary, it just means oral or anal sex. It doesn’t say anything about a lack of consent, so what’s the problem? As long as it doesn’t affect anyone else in a way that they don’t want to be affected, I don’t see how it’s wrong. And, also, morals DO evolve as people get smarter, and the old laws DO become outdated. Take your precious Bible for instance: at some point it says that rape victims should be put to death OR be forced to marry their rapist. Don’t tell me that’s not outdated, and that Christians don’t quietly disregard the outdated bits. The constitution is not immune to this, which is why we have three branches of government: to change the laws as society evolves and make sure it’s fair. Socialism: you’re right that full-blown communism won’t work, but that’s not what Obama is saying. We already have (at least partially) socialized school, and we have seen from other countries that socialized medicine can work if done correctly. Yes, some lazy people may slip past our nets and not have to work, but personally I’d rather pay for ten lazy people than allow one person who legitimately needs help to go without. Gun laws: Obama’s just saying that you have to get a background check before you can buy a gun to make sure you’re not a psychotic would-be serial killer. I don’t see what’s wrong with that.

  89. We live in a world where forbearance is often mistaken for acquiescence. In a frenzy of dishonest self-contradictory buffoonery shouted at a high volume I give Obama full marks for restraint. Now that it’s over Mitt will have no backtracking escape route come the next encounter. Kind of reminded me of a Yorkshire terrier barking at a Great Dane.

  90. You wrote it. Must be true, it’s on the internet. And so is everything else true on the internet. Mind giving an example of the foolish things he has done? Or failing that, some right wing talking point you heard somewhere that supports your position? Or even better, something that will illuminate us about the character of Mitt Romney, which this article was about?

  91. I love how the media in this country is so biased and blind to what has happened to this country in the past 4 years. Just go make your vote Cynthia it is quite obvious you would be voting for BullWinkle and Mr. Ed just because they are listed on the DEm ticket. Also since your check is signed by the Obama campaign, keep in mind the one distinct difference between OBama supporters and Romney supporters, we sign the check on the front and you and your BO lovers sign it on the back!

  92. In response to the ‘gi joe’ diatribe. You have the right to your opinion and also to voice it. What is disturbing though, is the use of the tired old complaints against Obama coupled with empty, bombastic and apocalyptic “patriotic” rantings. ‘Vote to save our Republic’? Come on, really? These kind of statements are like the bleatings of brainwashed denizens of such ‘civilized’ countries such as North Korea and Iran. Do yourself a favor and get a decent liberal arts education and someday, even you, may be able to think critically, appreciate nuance and subtlety and have something to say that is well-founded and promotes dialogue that is reasonable and focused on solving problems that we all face.

  93. People with I.Q.s in the single digits often have their names caricaturized (figure it out). A couple of timely examples are:”Slopinthe Gutter”, and “Dimmie Washerwoman Schlitz”. We’re working on yours now, Cynthia.

  94. Romneys flip flopping has been observed by everyone. in his latest attack add and also in the debate he is falsely accusing Obama of increasing 4000 dollars tax on a middle class income earner. i interviewed at least 45 people earning between 70,000 to 20000 and every said that thier taxes have gone down 3000-5000 dollars dependning upon place and hose you live.
    Romney and Ryan are flat out lying and the problem is hald the poulation salting his lies.

  95. Well can tell just from the tone of this article that the writer is far left radical and blinded by the left proclaimed messiah. Ignorrince is indeed bliss as the Obama camp is all smiles with apoligies to the muslim Brotherhood affiliated gangster islamic Terrorists, yes ISLAMIC TERRORIST”S screw your political correct poison. unless we do wake up here to both the foreign and homegrown Terrorists, those that are fighting to institute Sharia law hre and the liberal judges and lawers that allow such a trampling of out constitution and the faith of our founding father’s. We will be forced under Islamic Terroists and Sharia law or we will fight and take back every square inch of American soil from those that have come here with the intent of destroying us. It is well past the time to Call a Spade a Spade and not a discolored rose or some other crock of shit


    • When people honestly thought that Obama was not eligible to be president because of his birth he did not show a birth certificate until two years into his presidency. You question Romney’s taxes when he has done what he is supposed to do. It is the other candidates who want this information and he is not required to give it up. However by the constitution you have to be born in America to be eligible to be president. Which is more important showing a birth certificate or a tax return.

  97. The scoundrel. Romney should have told the families of the slain that their beloved relative’s deaths were just reward for being emissaries of an evil empire. Furthermore, he should have criticized the President for not immediately apologizing to the Libyan extremist faction for their having to perform the murders and putting themselves at such risk. Instead of delivering a care package to the wife of Sean Smith, the EVE online community owes Egypt several million dollars for damages inflicted on their soil due to our shortsighted thinking we could be friends. Yep, we don’t need leaders like Romney to pretend doing the right thing. We would not know right from wrong if a terrorist killed us for it, whatever ‘it’ is in the mind of an open minded society!

  98. In contrast, after President Carter’s botched raid to rescue hostages in Iran, Ronald Reagan, his rival, said, “This is the time for us as a nation and a people to stand united.”

    This is what President Obama should have said also instead of bowing down to the miscreants who killed our people in Benghazi. I agree with Mitt and so do millions of Americans. Go Romney!!!

  99. You people are completely INSANE ! Romney was 100% right in everything he said about this incident…. the “President” you all think is so wonderful has LIED over and over about the incident and YES – STUCK UP for the murderers by claiming it was not a pre planned attack and in response to a 5th rate, really bad and mostly unseen youtube short film.
    Romney didn’t lie – and Obama DID and continues to lie. Obama didn’t even wait for the bodies to cool before running off to rub elbows with his Hollywood friends will protecters still angrily burned our flag outside our embassies all around the world.
    What on Earth would it take for you people to see Obama for what he is…. a completely currupt and inept failure of a president.

  100. You want to talk about character and talking before you know the information? How about your man Obama and blaming the police officer in the attack on the Black Professor before he knew the whole story. He had to apologize and invite the officer over for beers. He showed his racism there, but since it was early in his administration no one brings it up anymore.

  101. so, Romney’s nose grew another few inches last week with all the lies he told during the debate. Obama was left trying to figure out how to debate a worm. Why isn’t the Obama campaign using Mitt’s own lack of honesty and principles to bring “Romney’s Black side’ to light? Do we accept lying as a character we want in charge in this country? I have not.

  102. I am afraid I will have to agree with Faster. Obama inherited a mess created by the Republicans – one George W. Bush. George did invade a sovereign Country (Iraq), captured and executed their leader. There was no provocation for such a hegemenous act. Yes, Hussein was a bad guy – but he was the baddest of the bad guys and that maintains equilibrium in an unbalanced environment. With that execution, Pandoras Box was opened and the entire Mid-East has been moving toward WWIII. There was absolutely no evidence of weapons of mass destruction and it was admitted by our government after the fact. The war has increased our multi- trillion dollar deficit – a war started by a Republican President. Now Romney wants to start one with Iran – who has the Million Man Army! – standby, its about to get a whole lot worse under a man with absolutely NO political savvy or diplomatic skill. The war has killed 2000 of our countrymen and maimed thousands more. These are the men and women Obama is bringing home after 8 years of this lunacy. The financial meltdown – which Obama also inhereited was the direct result of the Republican Congress removing oversight of the financial markets because it was “too intrusive” It is to Obama’s credit that the United States did not suffer a complete and total financial meltdown rather than the recession we did suffer – which is now beginning to turn around; unemployment numbers are down; many of the banks have paid back the TARP funds with interest – Government actually some made money! Now, if banks would just start lending money, we might see some real growth. You cannot fix the failed policies of an 8 year president in four years with a new one. Romney has not said the same thing twice in two speeches; he is the ultimate Machiavelli – the Ends Justify the Means. He has no details of how he is going to do the things he says he will do because the number do not add up. While he was Governor his state dropped to almost the lowest (47th) unemployment in the County. He is full of plattitudes and no substance.

  103. As usual this has no basis in fact. It is filled with half truths at best. Facts are the Obama administration was unwilling to admit that this coordinated attack [which just happened to happen on Sept 11th] was a terrorist attack. This would go against our nobel peace prize winning President’s stated agenda to cow tow to terroist, blame Americans expressing free speech and justify Jihadist as they rape their own daughters and bomb their own people. Facts are the next day Hillary knew it was a terroist attack yet for 2 weeks the spin was it was an unruly mob {with 2 50 man contingents with RPGs and other sophisticated weapons] who just happened to be having tea when a riot broke out. Did I mention this happened on Sept 11th. Every intelligent American knew it was a terroist attack. You idiots who voted for Obama ,America’s number one racist ,Rev Wright wannabe have been rewarded with $5.00 / gallon gas 2.5 times what it was when Obama was elected. Oh that’s right 4 years later “it is Bush’s fault”

  104. In case you missed it while you where swinging left.
    House Oversight and Government Reform Committee leaders today sent a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton asking why requests for more protection were denied to the U.S. mission in Libya by Washington officials prior to the September 11, 2012 terrorist attack that killed U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens. The denials came after repeated attacks and security threats to U.S. personnel.

    “Based on information provided to the Committee by individuals with direct knowledge of events in Libya, the attack that claimed the ambassador’s life was the latest in a long line of attacks on Western diplomats and officials in Libya in the months leading up to September 11, 2012. It was clearly never, as Administration officials once insisted, the result of a popular protest,” the committee’s chairman, Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., and subcommittee chairman, Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, write. “In addition, multiple U.S. federal government officials have confirmed to the Committee that, prior to the September 11 attack, the U.S. mission in Libya made repeated requests for increased security in Benghazi. The mission in Libya, however, was denied these resources by officials in Washington.”

  105. What a bunch of crap. Only Obama and his cronies got the Benghazi attacks wrong. Obviously, this is a liberal website. You can all continue preaching to the choir here.

  106. Boy! Are you off!!
    It is so interesting that so many people in America SUSPECT someone when they have high morals, are genuine, distinguished, brilliant, and have incredible experience and success. I guess people who aren’t in that caliber can’t relate to someone who is so outstanding. Could it be jealousy?

    • Sorry to say, merle, but we have a rather large population of idiots and goof-balls in America. Just hope they forget to vote for Obommer.

  107. In total agreement with the article, this candidate counts on what he perceives as a basic gullibility of the American voters. Romney’s position on political and foreign policy depends on whatever he considers an opening to discredit rather than any actual convictions, even at his own expense often appearing clueless of the facts required to verify his statements, the man is a charlatan and the supporters of his obvious incompetency give credance to the idea of sheeplike mentality!

  108. Just Some Real Facts About Mitt Romney That We Will Not Hear About From The Main Stream Media About The Real Mitt Romney!
    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 stake 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 US

    • Well said, ChicagoGuy!!

      In 2012, don’t believe the media. If one votes for a Democrat (or Rino) at any level of Government – Federal, State or Local, that person may be an idiot.
      Vote for the most Constitutional, Conservative, Christian and Candidate with the most American Values in all elections.

      Also important is all 435 Congressman are up for election/reelection (every two years) and 1/3 of the 100 Senators are up for election (six year terms, 1/3 elected every two years). Also you may have State Legislators and local candidates up for election/reelection on even or odd years.

  109. Americans are really strange people. I thought they must have learnt their lessons after their electing George Bush two times into the oval office. The mess that fake created has not fully been cleared. Its effect on everyone around the world is still very evident. But Americans seem to have forgotten so soon. I see alot of similarities this time around. The same nascism, the same lies, the same hypocricy, the same war rethoric, the same superiority complex. Personally, I actually dont blame Romney. After all, he is a politician. But how come the american eletorate are so blind to all his antics? Beats me.

  110. How do you like being so wrong Cynthia Tucker? It was your candidate that “shot first and aimed later.” Either that or he knowingly lied about the whole “demonstrations about an offensive youtube video.” You media people in bed with the administration look more unprofessional every day. It becomes a question of your character, or rather lack of.

  111. This article is an extremely skewed opinion of what actually happened. I would like to read an article about the author’s character, Cynthia Tucker is obviously comfortable twisting the truth also known as lying.

  112. The administration lied to save face. They got caught, but their accomplices in the main stream media (like this writer) refuse to hold them to account. Instead, they spin this against Romney. Sad, but not surprising.
    The Obama administration allows a consulate to be attacked, despite warnings, denying requests for additional security measures. But Romney is the bad guy. Right.

  113. Actually President Obama while our embassy and ambassaders lives were being attacked actually apologized to the terriorist attacking our embassys and the next day was partying with jay-z and beyonce. Wow how presidential and lied about why the attacks took place and denied beefed up security at embasssy in libia by cutting back military security at that location. To attack Mitt Romney who was completley correct in his accessment of terrible leadership on the part of our president is such a spin away from how completely irresponsible and cowardly our president responded. Oh dang where is President Bush to blame? Obama now hows to run on his record not his last campaign which was CHANGE, AND ITS ALL BUSHES FAULT. Trouble is nobody asked the what he planned on changing of the greatest nation on earth, now we know what change he meant Socialism, Lets become like Europe, wow Europe what a mess there Yea lets be like france, Then we have English guys like Pierce Morgan coming from his jacked country telling us how to vote in America. Go Home Pierce put a wig on and try to fix the absolutley crappy economics and government health care there, where seniors are denied health care because the govermennt decides there too old and by the way I have seen pts from England and their dentistry is horrible . Great idea Pierce and Obama lets not tweek the best health care in the world, lets completely change it to socialized crap. World leaders come here for proper health care for a reason. Lets decrease military because diplomacy works on completley insane evil dictators. People like Bin Ladin just needed to sit down with Obama have a few beers and resolve why crazy insane evil people want to destroy America. Hey Obama you do have one achievement over past Presidents you are so cool how you hang out with celeberties 24/7 actors who most of them dont even have a high school degree, they can act , so now they are authorities on how to run this amazing country. So keep taking advice from George Cloony, who states President Obama just has that “it” factor I dont know what it is but he has it. What? really? Oh Yea Eva Longoria “He is just Cool” Thats whats important in a President” What? Eva stick to acting your an idiot.

    • PAID REPUBLICAN POLITICAL HACK SAYANIM These twits are all over the internet and the party fingerprints in their styles and content are all the same. Sometimes they deliberately mess up the spelling and grammar to give it that good ol’ down home folksiness but it’s the same slimey propaganda written on about a 4th grade level, about the same as the average newspaper. Same target, I suppose. “evil people destroying America” is a good example. “insane evil dictators” is straight out of the repub phrasebook. The Bush wormtongues loved it. The above writer seems to favor pop media figures as those are all he mentions. And, of course, (Noooo….) SOCIALISM. Now, recall that NAZI translates out into National SOCIALIST Party. Hmmm. We know that the repubs favor fascism, always have, always will. My understanding is that NAZI translated out behaviorally into fascism. So, is Socialism fascism? Even Big Brother’s world had a national health systom. It’s all so confusing. But the identity of the above writer is clear.

      • hello senator biden
        by the way if your guy biden and obama are so for the poor tell me why their charitable contributions are on their tax returns or so so little and im talking from percent of income extremely lower than all republican canidates so mister grammer who uses spell check answer that straight up without libral spin Sent from my Verizon Wireless smartphone

      • When i spotted the EGA which i wear proudly i automatically thought…..THis will be a good post, Telling the truth as it happened……..That EGA must belong to your nephew or someone else, ANYONE who has served in a time of “Conflict” under a Democratic President certainly knws what i mean! Just recentely United States Marines ordered to DISARM in a WAR ZONE! They were forced to stack arms outside the Tent were Panetta was speaking…BULLSHIT…NEVER IN HISTORY HAS THIS OCCURED!!! There are many more instances of this administrations “cowtowing” to the ‘Islamic republics’.

        • Pierce, you’re an inexperienced boot talking through your skivvies. I served under a Democratic President: John Fitzgerald Kennedy. Your kind murdered him and I don’t mean the patsy, ol’ Lee Harvey. If you were any kind of wouldbe Marine other than a bedwetter who got sent home early from bootcamp, you would know the name of the greatest gahdam Marine who ever joined underage as a private and left a Major General with every decoration ever minted including 2, TWO, CMHs. His name was Smedley Darlington Butler. He had an EGA tattoo from his neck to his dick. He wrote a book “War is a Racket: My thirty years as a Thug for Capitalism”. I think it’s about time you got around to reading it and seeing who in America he is talking about. He is talking about the guys you think are so kewl, the psychopaths like romney and ryan and the kochs and all the other parasites blowing smoke up the collective ass of America. Sorry to disappoint you regarding the depth of your ignorance of history. Let me ask you even though you weren’t there, when the jarhaids left their pieces outside, who actually ordered it? Maybe some C.O. who knew his men, knew how frustrated they were fighting an urban war for which they were not trained, knowing that they were routinely killing women, children, the old folks in the most hideous ways, and secretly and unconsciously hating themselves for it (think PTSD), knowing how easy it would be for some rabid christian in the crowd to suddenly be ‘moved by god’ to ‘smite’ the liberal debbil… A room full of semi-crazed Marines, locked and loaded… Hmmmm.

  114. Of course Rob Me has to key in asap, that’s the game he plays and it is just a game to him. listen to Rob Me and his half wit followers and you’ll hear how the auto industry wasted the tax payers money and didn’t pay anything back or you’ll hear how AIG was the biggest mistake and the tax payers aren’t making a profit from it’s sale. You can be guaranteed one thing, if people are stupid enough to give him the keys to the kingdom, they deserve what they get which will be nothing short of the total destruction of the United States of America.

    • What a fool talking about games when your boy is out partying and going on the talk circuit and getting nothing done but lying , look around get off your couch and really look around and if you think we are having it so great your a bigger fool ,some of us work and pay for your existence. one more year of this and we are toast.

  115. Appears this author is drinking the Obama cool-aid.

    In 2012, don’t believe the media. If one votes for a Democrat (or Rino) at any level of Government – Federal, State or Local, that person may be an idiot.
    Vote for the most Constitutional, Conservative, Christian and Candidate with the most American Values in all elections.

    Also important is all 435 Congressman are up for election/reelection (every two years) and 1/3 of the 100 Senators are up for election (six year terms, 1/3 elected every two years). Also you may have State Legislators and local candidates up for election/reelection on even or odd years.

    • Yes, Mr. Grossman, anyone who has read Dr. Robert Hare will have no difficulty seeing the psychopathy in ol’ mitt and in the entire system he embodies and is a constituent of. But, I think the consideration it took for you to share your testimony here (alas, along with the usual paid repub hacks) mitigates your diagnosis by some small measure. I, myself, define a sociopath as lacking empathy, sympathy and altruism. I define a psychopath as a sociopath with greed (greed is not all for gold). Politician is a recommended career path for a clinical psychopath. Sales, the Law, banking are also excellent career choices for psychopaths. Corporate management was made for psychopaths and is a necessary credential in the higher reaches albeit nonpsychopaths ‘burn out’ (moral fatigue) well before any promotion to upper management. And mitt was a corporate star. Thank you for your comment, Sir.

  116. What an idiotic article. Bambi and Hillary are completely irresponsible and Romney is calling them on it as well he should. Since when are Bambillary immune to criticism, especially when they so richly deserve it. Go Mitt!

  117. You sound like a megaphone for Limpbaugh, Hannity, and the rest of those nut cases. You must be delirious or just crazy. Mitt madhatter Romney is a closet psychopath. But he is only fooling you and others like yourself. The man is certified “Loose Cannon” We will not allow him to occupy that office at any cost. He is a mad white man on an inflated ego trip. I hope you are ready to go to war, and it may be your last one. Just think about it WWIII. But if I know your type, you will not go to war but sit back on that fat azz and watch others die. Well screw that and the horse it rode in on.

  118. How is changing that America a bad thing? Institutionalized Racism, Poverty, Waqges that don’t keep up with inflation. Hell I would love a different America.

  119. How is your line of thinking now>? Ms. Cynthia Tucker your ignorance has now came fully into the light, “Obummer” flat out lying about request for more security in Libya! Only 2 nights ago Vice-President Joe “Duh” Biden flat out LIED to MILLIONS during the debate by stating ‘WE DIDN’T KNOW’! Bullshit, Your own State Department had issued just the opposite the day before! You liberal right-wingers would rather see America’s dollar crash, Great upheaval occur…Just as long as “Obummer” stays in office, You do not give a “Tinkers damn” about this Nation, You call yourself a “Reporter”!!! LOL!!! TRY A JOKE!!!

  120. This ‘ability’ to say anything , true and untrue, and keep on saying the untrue is the flaw that makes a successful capitalist a dangerous President. Who can or will respect Romney’s word. I won’t.

  121. You have all taken a drink of the Obama koolaid. What about Obama’s character? “I will lower unemployment to 5.4% with my stimulus”….WRONG….It is around 8%. “I will cut the deficit in half”…..WRONG…He doubled the debt….”I will work across the isle with Republicans”….Wrong….arrogant attitude has cost americans. Gas prices were $1.89 when he took office and are now closing in on $4 a gallon. According to Obama, we are using more AMERICAN oil than ever before. If that is true, then why are we paying DOUBLE???

    Where are the Democrats from Massachusetts talking bad about Romney? Nowhere to be found. He accomplished a TON in Mass. by WORKING across the isle with the Democrats. Romney took over the Winter Olympics and turned it from a money pit to a profitable organization. He payed less taxes because he DONATED more to charity. He didn’t break any laws.


    Ask only this question….Are you better off today than you were four years ago?

    As for the 47% question, who cares??? There are a lot of Americans that actually DO act entitled and EXPECT the government to pay for everything. It is time that these freeloaders got off of there asses and got to work. Opps…forgot…because of Obama, there are NO jobs!

    • What has Romney done to deserve our vote? Let’s count: bet against America, practice and defend vulture capitalism, attack women, be clueless about the modern world, lie again and again, fire people and birds, insult our allies, play the missionary hard working victim, dodge the draft, abandon veterans, insult minorities, deny reality, choose a lying running mate, disrespect the president, insult our intelligence, raise a disrespectful, uncivil bully, evade taxes, lie to the IRS (Utah or Mass), use “time travel” to justify past lies, flip-flop, flip-flop again, and again, lack perspective and common sense, lack imagination, have a mythical economic plan, belong to a kool-aid drinking teaparty, and to a cult, write off luxuries as remedies, make ligh of women’s issues, deny he used contraceptives, deny human nature and last but not least, lives on the wrong planet altogether. Conclusion: not presidential material but has enough money to buy conciences, a new image (remember the flip-flopping proclivities) votes, elections, lobbyists and other commodities.

  122. I am not surprised that your outrage is directed in the wrong direction again. When Obama supporters should be asking why Obama allowed this terrorist to happen, you try to cover for your man’s failings by shifting the blame to Romney. Typical Cowardly response. Stand up and take responsibility for the mess Obama is making. Can’t blame this one on Bush so Romney will do.

  123. I am not surprised that you Obama Zombies are misguided once again. Your outrage should be directed toward Obama for allowing the murder of four Americans in Libya and for him covering up his blunder by blaming some obscure YouTube video for two weeks. I guess since you can’t blame Bush now Romney will do. Why don’t you stand up and take responsibility for Obama’s failings like grown adults? Why are you so afraid to admit that Obama is not perfect?

  124. from my detached/ remote view in Barbados I see that Romney is one of these red necked militants who will rush America into deeper and deeper conflict if he could ever gain the reins of power; added to that he is a blatant liar who is using the intransigence of the Republicans majority, blocking any and every initiative to help the poor and middle class and then blaming Obama for not achieving when they have forced debilitating compromise. AMERICA NEEDS TO ESCAPE THE BUSH TYPE BEHAVIOR WHICH HAS RUN THEM INTO SO MUCH ECONOMIC STRESS WITH THE UNNECESSARY IRAQI WAR AND ALL and look for the HIGH ROAD and stop baiting China for political gain

  125. oops i sure did not mean to like that eww, do you mean help the rich and the richer, You mean yourself. you know you are not middle class or poor, if you are how much are they paying you? lilymanhatten speaking! tell the truth. If you are rich you want to get richer!

  126. this was a response to James CarLyle green for those of you who are unaware of my comment. Lilymanhatten All of these comments are me not the user Howard.

  127. I could never have said it any better. His son Tagg is a prime example of the apple not falling far from the tree. God bless us all and God bless America and this election.

    • The whole Romney clan is hell bent on embarassing each other through the media.Tagg has a lot working against him, poor thing. First of all, that (and last ) name must be a heavy load to bear. Then his father is a liar, a charlatan and a dishonest clown. The whole world knows it and Tagg is, again, in denial. I sincerely hope things get better on Planet Kolob.

      • And if that happens America is doomed how soon do we forget unless we are just like the ones who almost ruined the country 8 years prior to President Obama’s 4 years but don’t let me try tochange . your mind .

        • @greg058… what you don’t seem to realize is that in our system of government we are constituted to have a balance of power which is fragile in the sense we must have scrupulous people as representatives of the people. Remember, that is why a very formidable thinker who assisted in the founding of this great, unique country said:

          “The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government – lest it come to dominate our lives and interests.”

          No greg058, the mess did not start with the admin of Bush43, who had an Obama-type congress to bring Bush43 and the people down, it began with the nefarious elements of the progressive movement, who most infamously started the welfare system many, many years ago, to disable the hard-working ethic of many Americans to turn them into drones for the purpose of securing their votes. Not obvious to you?

          Don’t yet see how it works, what you are doing? Many of us do, sorry to break it to you. Do you really think that people don’t know the alinsky types like Obama are micro-managing to destroy our country? Still blaming Bush? How are you going to blame Bush for Benghazi, Greg058? Obama and his ways are being exposed well by this one Benghazi incident, only one of his many lies. Bush was nowhere around that one to be implicated.

          • Esther I do agree that we as human beings should be able to direct our own lives in a way in which it most benefits and profits our families and our communities. I just don’t think Mitt Romney is going to move this country in that direction I also agree with you that the welfare system did a lot of harm to this country but we will see because I believe that Mitt Romney is going to win this election.

          • Obama grew just the food stamp population alone from 32 million to 47 million.

            Watch this number drop when the R&R starts taking effect!

  128. It is funny how many people do not even know that the first four years of a new Presidents term is always the former presidents policies.It takes two terms for a president to really be able to effect change.

      • That is the difference between you and me I believe that America is as strong or as week as it’s population you believe in money when the Republicans finish messing up this country the American dollar will be worthless

  129. don’t forget how in prep school he had confederates hold down a hapless kid while he cut his hair with a scissors that he had conveniently brought with him. The kid’s crime…..he looked gay. A guy who is this much of a bully and a coward is not going to change his stripes much after high school…this kind of character flaw is pretty much sealed in by 7th or 8th grade.

  130. This article is a tailored Democratic article to discredit a decent human being. The writer is trying to giver credit to Obama for a lot of things that he had little or nothing to do – but take credit for the doings of others – an Obama trade mark. The liberal press and diehard Democrats are running scared (as they should be) We are a nation at war – war against a tyrant who claims to be a champion of the American way of life. Nothing could be further from the truth. It is not too late for voters to see what a desparate Presidetn will do to get reelected. He s no match for Romney in any phase. No business experience, no truthfulness, an economic record of incompetence and disregard for the security and sovernty of our country. This is a president and administration whose operational philosophy is deceiving the public, lying and ignoring the US Constitution andabusing our rights. It;s too bad that so many young peiople get taken in by the liberal bias press that protects the President. That change will come (God willing) on November 6th

    • OBAMA /BIDEN do not have a record to stand on so they use these ridiculous ad hominum attacks on their opponent.

      These are obvious lies, look in the faces of his family and see what I mean. Mitt Romney has EVERY QUALITY NEEDED TO RUN A BUSINESS, A FAMILY AND THIS COUNTY. And thank God, he wants the job, because he loves this country, AND NOT BECAUSE HE WANTS TO BE A DICTATOR.

  131. Where is the Obama Plan for the next 4 years? Hasn’t reallly produced anthing of substance. I am not a Happy Camper and will vote for Romney. he at least tells me what he plans on doing and I just hate to see a nother 4 years like the past 4 years.

    • you poor soul … i wish i had a dollar for each one of romney’s “plans” … i’d be as rich as he is … but the problem is, none of ’em will work … he wants to make you think he’s got something, but there’s nothing there … look a little deeper than that phony smile on his face..

  132. I hope Obama will beat Romnie. Because if Romnie wins, God help us. He is a liar. He will stop at nothing to get in the White house.

  133. The issue with Romney is his blatant dishonesty. What real Republican candidate would dare to bet against America and then try to make people believe his for us? What happened to honor, patriotism, truth and integrity? He is simply a traitor to our country and if he is elected we can only sit and watch the country fall. Maybe Spengler was into something when he wrote The Decline of the West. (I wonder how many teadrinkers have read it.)

  134. Liberal achievements are ghostly nonsense and progressive nuts trying to give Obama a pass but the majority of Americans are tired of the blame game. Obama, had two full years of controlling three branches of government and we got 2,700 pages and 13,000 regulations in Obamacare. The silent majority answered in 2010, the Obama administration still did not get the message but this cycle it will be him getting the boot. Obama is not the whole problem but he took the wrong path when he could have did great things with the three branches of government and the American people behind him. In the real world he would have been fired the first year for not meeting the goals of reducing the debt and for non-completion of a budget. Business and Accounting 101. Obama is waiting to sign treaties with the UN to have the United States pay taxes into a world fund for tree hugger fantasies and to circumvent Congress. Obama is a traitor to the country and the people.

  135. 16 trillion debt, highest unemployment rate, housing crisis, near depression status, gays given superior rights, third world leaders scoff us, virtually no higher paying jobs anywhere despite massive growth of degrees in many fields, food prices tripling, etc.
    Yet, promises to quite lobbying efforts, killing of innocent babies thrive funded by tax dollars, educational programs nationwide vanquished, etc. The list can go on.

    Another four years of misery may await for us in a socialist state. Remember the Alamo.

  136. I for one am sick to death of Obama’s dwarfing of the situation – I am extremely grateful that Romney has come out on this situation and don’t feel he has been tough enough on the Obama administration. They keep saying how America is safer now than it was 4 years ago – my rear-end it is. Tell that to the 4 dead Americans that had been asking for beefed up protection and were denied. Romney lied? whatever, if he did his, lies are parrell to Obama’s truths

    • I’ve listened carefully to Romney and have yet to find him guilty of telling a lie. Truth is true regardless of who is telling it. And what Romney has done and said tells a happy tale. We need him in the White House and to represent this nation throughout the world.

  137. Obama is Highly Respected around the World. He has given speeches in Europe where Hundreds of thousands of people came to listen to him. No other president has been that popular throughout the World.

    • That’s what you said before, and repeating it doesn’t make it any more true. Obama can make a good speech if the teleprompter is working well. That’s surely true. But actions speak louder than words, and Obama’s actions have nearly ruined the U.S.A. Does that matter? To his partisans, it doesn’t matter at all.

  138. The stock market has come back strong. Million of people that had investments in the stock market and 401K have received large returns on their investments since Obama took office.

    Stock Market Closing Prices – 1/20/09 and 10/10/12.

    Dow Jones Industrial Average Close -1/20/09 at 7949.09 —— 10/19/12 – 13,343.51

    Nasdaq Stock Market Close -1/20/09 1440.86 —— 10/19/12 – 3,005.62

    S&P 500 Close – 1/20/09 805.23 ——– 10/19/12 – 1,433.19

  139. Obama is Highly Respected around the World. He has given speeches in Europe where Hundreds of thousands of people came to listen to him. No other president has been that popular throughout the World.

    • It’s easy to claim that Obama is respected “around the world.” But if he is personally respected, the nation he seeks to represent has lost a great deal of respect as he has gone everywhere apologizing for our past. And I can’t guess that he in fact is personally respected. Surely his lies do not go unnoticed by our friends around the world. And his actions speak loudly about his lack of respect for our Constitution. No, I don’t believe that it’s true as claimed that Obama is highly respected anywhere, particularly where his actions have done the most damage to ourselves and our friends.


    • Lying about the video was a signal to the al-Sheria TERRORIST GROUP operatives that he (the president of the United States … Barack Hussein Obama) was covering for them! Remember the slip about 57 states? That was no slip either, but a signal also in the same vein.

    • I think the liberals, progressives, whatever they are, they think we were born yesterday. Thank you for your passion for our country, quixel2000!!!

  141. Is Obama the first commander-in-chief of the armed forces of the United States to desert his troops in battle? I think so – “Benghazi” – a name which will live in infamy

  142. The facts bear out that Romney is a good charitable man.

    The author needs to take an actual factual look at the shallow snake in the grass Obama.
    From at least his (Pot induced. ) High school daze on through seeking out the anti-American riff raff scum though his college days to his under handed tactics(Punctuated with the dirty money he got from slum lords like Rezko, etc. )he used to
    win his elections…Obama is a scoundrel.

  143. Woodfork, Midlred, faster: You people been living in another world, of unreal B/S by Obama and his minions. You say he’s not Muslim, how about the only President not having the National Day of Prayer for four years , how about giving christan’s the same relief from the crusing mess of Obama care. Now and then the very same week go and pray in an Muslim palace for his Brotherhood of Muslims. How about giving the Muslims complete immunity from Obama care, because they do not believe in gambling, well my Christan Jesus, says I should not gamble. letting them be mascared by Muslim’s., how about Obama and his murderous Muslims giving Christan’s help in Egypt, not letting them to be murdered. Everything he has done leads us into an European Soocialist Country. Wake up and remove the blinders. and Clean the crap out of your ears.

  144. I can’t believe the amount of sheer hate and ignorance demonstrated on this blog! It’s truly disgusting!

    The sheer hate and bigotry demonstrated, and lack of memory for recent history, what really happened, and why; make it clear to me that the Democratic Party is no longer for me.

    I’m voting for a 3rd party candidate, and renouncing my party membership.

    I no longer wish to be associated with such intolerant, ignorant, and hateful xenophobes that have seemingly become ubiquitous in the democratic party of the last 12 years, and there seems to be no going back to civility. I give up!

    I most especially will be boycotting The National Memo,and this forum.

    Goodbye, and good riddance.

    To the minority of you here who are civil,tolerant, and who can separate the lies, propaganda, and campaign posturing, from what’s actually going on around you, my apologies. I wasn’t talking about you. Best of luck, and hope to see you soon elsewhere, I’m sure it won’t be long.

  145. With the final presidential debate upon us, liberals and ill-informed leftists will no doubt be jumping on the Obama bandwagon once again. The astoundingly charismatic president already holds a well-deserved award for ‘best marketing campaign 2008,’ along with an almost laughable Nobel Peace Prize; but before one goes door to door for good ol’ Barack, a look at his lesser-known foreign policy is in order. I will try to steer clear of issues which were given any substantial coverage in the mainstream media, and any domestic policies, such as healthcare and tax-reform, where he has made crippling compromises. Instead, my goal is to display the continuity and, in many ways, escalation of hostile Bush policies, and to show the smiling democrat for what he really is.

    In congressional testimony, Dennis Blair- Director of National Intelligence for the Obama administration- noted the existence of an ‘assassination program’ which targets dozens of people, many of them US citizens, living abroad. Following up unconfirmed accusations of terror made by the Executive Branch, Obama dispatches highly trained military personnel to murder any possible suspects, without the authorisation of the countries in which they reside. The thought of adhering to the 5th amendment, (which states- ‘No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury’) or abiding by the presumption of innocence, or respecting national sovereignty, is beyond contemplation. Anwar al-Awlaki, a US citizen working as a cleric in Yemen, was killed on the 30th of September 2011 while, more notably, Osama bin Laden met his maker earlier this year. Several attempts made by a federal judge to inquire into these practices were blocked by Obama in 2010.

    The killing of bin Laden, as noted by political analyst Noam Chomsky, was done in a way almost designed to infuriate the Pakistanis. Levels of anti-American sentiment are already at a boiling point among the military and civilian population, and refusal to make a lawful arrest will no doubt drive more Muslims toward the Jihadi movement (just as Osama would have wanted). David Petraeus was not incorrect when he said that the United States is bin Laden’s greatest ally, and we have seen Obama reinforce that notion through secretive drone strikes in Pakistan (just one of the six countries he has bombed without Security Council authorisation), killing up to 2,680 civilians and injuring far more. Amnesty International calls to ‘provide lawful justification’ for these bombings and ‘record civilian casualties’ have, of course, been ignored. Chomsky’s observation that ‘Bush kidnaps and tortures…while Obama just kills’ is, in fact, generous. While Obama shut down CIA torture facilities, other such US prisons still exist- many of which make Guantanamo seem like a slightly sub-par Disneyland.

    The following is taken from a BBC report on the infamous ‘black prison’ in Afghanistan- documenting the experience of ‘less than sixteen year-old’ boy, Rashid:

    At the beginning of his detention, he was forced to strip naked and undergo a medical check-up in front of about a half-dozen American soldiers. He said that his Muslim upbringing made such a display humiliating and that the soldiers made it worse.

    ‘They touched me all over my body. They took pictures, and they were laughing and laughing,’ he said. ‘They were doing everything.’

    He said he lived in a small concrete cell that was slightly longer than the length of his body. Food was tossed in a plastic bag through a slot in the metal door. Both teenagers said that when they tried to sleep, on the floor, their captors shouted at them and hammered on their cells.

    When summoned for daily interrogations, Rashid said he was made to wear a hood, handcuffs and ear coverings and was marched into the meeting room. He said he was punched by his interrogators while being prodded to admit ties to the Taliban; he denied such ties. During some sessions, he said, his interrogator forced him to look at pornographic movies and magazines while also showing him a photograph of his mother.

    ‘I was just crying and crying. I was too young,’ Rashid said. ‘I didn’t know what a prison looks like or what a prison is.’

    As you can see, Obama shows no deviation from the inhuman Bush policies, and has refused to prosecute CIA officers who have taken part in the most egregious and illegal torture methods. In the case of Bradley Manning- a real American patriot accused of leaking embarrassing government documents- civil liberties attorney Glen Greenwald states: ‘[Manning is] subject to confinement – and the accompanying deprivation of social contact that solitary confinement necessitates, create[ing] long term psychological injuries. For 23 out of 24 hours every day — for seven straight months and counting — he [Manning] sits completely alone in his cell. Even inside his cell, his activities are heavily restricted; he’s barred even from exercising and is under constant surveillance to enforce those restrictions. For reasons that appear completely punitive, he’s being denied many of the most basic attributes of civilized imprisonment, including even a pillow or sheets for his bed (he is not and never has been on suicide watch). For the one hour per day when he is freed from this isolation, he is barred from accessing any news or current events programs.’

    This consistent unilateralism and disregard for human rights attracted fierce protests when undertaken by Bush, yet activists remain largely silent in the face of the current administration.

    Drawing our attention to Afghanistan and Libya, the subservient media did their job in leaving Obama’s atrocities pretty well unreported; with only an LA Times article mentioning the massacre of innocent Afghan civilians early on in his presidency: ‘Village elders, though, told provincial officials there were no Taliban in the area, which they described as a hamlet populated mainly by shepherds. Women and children were among the 22 dead, they said, according to Hamididan Abdul Rahmzai, the head of the provincial council.’

    Figures state that a total of 4,239 Afghani civilians have died since Obama’s surge in 2010, a number far greater than the World Trade Centre death-toll, and the country remains just as unstable. Afghanistan’s puppet Karzai government is ranked number 2 on the Transparency International list of most corrupt nations; the top-spot being held by Somalia- a nation which, incidentally, Obama has just supplied with bucket-loads of arms. As for Libya, it is no coincidence that direct military intervention occurred in the most oil-rich Arab nation. Ignoring Brazilian-Indian peace talks, the prospect of Gaddafi accepting a negotiated withdrawal, and Turkish or Egyptian intervention, Obama proceeded to supply the air-force for the rebel army (who never asked for western help to begin with)- contributing substantially to the estimated forty-thousand death-toll, and paving the way for US hegemony over Libya.

    As for the rest of the Arab-spring, do not be fooled by vague statements about ‘democracy’ and ‘freedom’; the Wilsonian trend of supporting corrupt middle-eastern dictators did not stop with Obama, and Egypt is a prime example. At the height of the Egyptian protests, Obama sent a mediator to talk with Mubarak (who is, not secretly, a long-time ally of the US and Britain). The mediator chosen was Frank Wisner, a lobbyist- I repeat- lobbyist, for Mubarak himself. Wisner, of course, reported back to Obama advising him to maintain support for the dictator, which he did up until the very end. The formula has been repeated time and time again, (Suharto, Ceausescu, Mussolini, Franco, Hitler etc.) where aid and assistance is provided to thuggish tyrants right up until their military turns against them or they turn against you- and Obama is in no way above it.

    Other directly anti-democratic policies enacted by the Obama administration are at play in Palestine and Haiti. When Hamas came to power in one of the only fair elections in the region, Bush punished the Palestinian people with horrendous and shocking sanctions. Restrictions were placed on water and food, and Israeli atrocities were stepped up in the West Bank. Sadly, Obama has continued down this path, and fails to recognize Hamas as a legitimate government, stating: ‘Hamas must recognise Israel’s right to exist; renounce violence; and abide by past agreements.’ These claims sound fair enough, however Hamas have recognised Israel’s right to exist in calling for a two-state settlement, (calls which have been blocked by Israel and the United States) it has tried to renounce violence, calling to re-implement the 2005 ceasefire agreement (calls which, again, have been blocked by Israel and the United States) and it is the state of Israel that has failed to abide by Jimmy Carter’s ‘roadmap’ agreement, along with several UN resolutions. Obama vetoed the Palestinian bid for statehood earlier this year, voted against a resolution calling for ‘the right of the Palestinian people to self-determination,’ and supports the expansion of illegal Israeli settlements- doing away with even the most minor penalties for settlers as brought in by Bush.

    As for Haiti; Obama sent Hillary Clinton over in 2009 to meet with president Rene Preval, in the hope of getting unfavourable candidates excluded from the electoral process. It was determined that Ariside, the candidate who won 90 per cent of the vote before he was deposed with the help of France and Canada, would not be allowed to run. US-Haitian foreign policy has been abysmal ever since Woodrow Wilson dismantled their parliamentary government to allow a US takeover, stating that ‘Haitians are negro for the most-part…therefore require as complete a rule as possible,’ but Obama’s crimes have been even worse. After the earthquake, Obama’s first act was to send US military personnel and Coast Guards to ensure that no Haitians were trying to flee to the US. Several refugees were subsequently captured and detained at Guantanamo. By the time Obama agreed to send aid, Cuba and Venezuela had already supplied over 100 doctors and food supplies, yet neither was recognised by the US as a ‘donor’ and therefore was not invited to the conference in Montreal. To this date, only 30 per cent of the US aid pledged has gone to Haiti, and Obama has failed to invest in any Haitian national institutions, as that would not benefit US investment.

    Virtually unreported is Obama’s shameless support for Alassane Ouattara- now president of Cote De Ivor- who, according to Amnesty International, ‘gave the green light for war crimes and crimes against humanity’ when fighting the existing leader, Laurent Gbagbo. Deputy Director for Africa Véronique Aubert states: ‘We know that they have executed hundreds of men of all age on political and ethnic grounds. We know that women have been raped. There are quite a lot of testimonies in the report, including on sexual violence.’ Ouattara and his terrorist army were given direct support by France and the United States, who lost economic control over the country with the election of Gbagbo; and it is expected that Obama will give $25 million in aid to the new Ouattara government. I do not doubt that Gbagbo was corrupt, however a study by James Inhofe stated it was ‘statistically impossible for Gbagbo to have lost the election,’ and it is known that Ouattara is friends with Henry Kissinger and other US officials. Either way, he is not someone who I would endorse.

    Finally, to dispel any illusion that Obama is ‘dedicated to peace,’ I would like to call attention to the president’s nuclear policies. With all the fear-mongering and propaganda surrounding Iran’s uranium enrichment program, US intelligence documents state that even if Iran had nuclear weapons, the threat would be miniscule. The development of Iranian nuclear weapons is in response to Israeli actions- namely, lowering US-funded nuclear submarines into the gulf- and would not be authorised for use by the ruling clerics. In fact, 80 per cent of the middle- eastern population have said that they believe Israel and the United States to be the main threat to nuclear security, and that the region would be safer if Iran did have a nuclear deterrent. Obama’s criticism of Iranian nuclear programs is even more hypocritical, as the US supports nuclear programs for the only three countries who have not signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (India, Israel, and Pakistan), and helps to block IAEA inspectors from gaining access to Israeli nuclear facilities. Obama has also gone against resolution 687, which calls for a nuclear-free zone in the middle-east, and has refused (along with Israel) to join the rest of the UN nations in building a nuclear-free African continent. With astounding arrogance, the president has also decided to build thirteen-tonne nuclear bombs- the largest weapon in the pentagon’s arsenal- just days after receiving the Nobel Peace Prize.

    Therefore, while the alternative may be a whole lot worse, I urge you to think twice before waving your ‘Obama ’12’ flag in the coming election. Remember what you are standing for. Do not settle for the symbolic victory of having a black man in the white house, or succumb to supporting the left-leaning faction of a one-party state. It is his policies that matter, not his cool demeanour or glinting incisors.

  146. The previous quote is from Oliver Eagleton. Romney is a serpent and a shallow one at that but Obama is by far no better. The biggest reason to stay away from Obama is that he will have nothing to lose if he is re-elected and will pull out all the stops because he will have no fear of another re-election. What he has done so far is enough. If Romney makes it in he will be busy for half his term trying to correct the wrongs Obama has done and will only have two years left to make his own idiotic mistakes. Hopefully by then the citizens of the United States can gather together and change the ridiculous two-party system or at least ensure that the next in lines are not slaves an sock puppets to the big business who only use president’s as the public punching bags while they go about their merry way milking the country for all it is worth.

  147. Face it, blacks are fanatics of Obama, merely because he is black (they don’t care if black unemployment is at its highest under Obama). I see news stories that Blacks are threatening to riot in the streets if Romney wins a fair election. Many are threatening to assassinate Romney, if he wins a fair election. This sounds more like Islamic extremists who riot in the streets in the Mid East, and vote with bullets instead of ballots. Very disappointing!

  148. I find it incredible the so many educated American voters would continue to support a President that has amassed more debt in one year than the past president did in his entire term of office, and will continue to do so into the future. In addition, many of the President’s promises have not even come close to being fulfilled, and yet people continue to believe in this amateur politician. When you look at the record of Romney, in his success as governor of the state of Mass. in working with a Democratic majority controlled legislature, success as a businessman; how can anyone continue to believe in the lies and misinformation put forth by our current office holder? We are like lemmings being led over the cliff by Obama as we turn a deaf ear to the facts. No wonder America has lost a great deal of respect in the developed world.

    The continuation of the current economic policy will result in much higher prices for commodities and imports, as well as a significant devaluation of our currency. The only reason it still has any value is the fact that we are screwing up less than the European countries, and yet we are on a path to duplicate their economic problems.

  149. Let’s just paint horns, a tail and a pitchfork on Romney to really get across the message of how vilely evil he is. Perhaps we should condemn him to the gulags, if we have any of those, and if not, create gulags where we can send him and all the Republicans.

    I mean this is a great moral issue, and the Democrats are certainly the good guys, and the Republicans are most definitely the bad guys. And bad guys should not be tolerated in any way. Off to the gulags with them!

  150. Obama should be impeached for his traitorous action in regard to the Benghazi debacle. And Secretary of Defense Panetta should be fired immediately as well. It was disgraceful how they botched that whole episode and allowed innocent people to die.

    It has always been American military tradition that we will risk the lives of hundreds to try and rescue one American in danger! As civilians, Obama and Panetta did not understand this unique concept, and they alienated the entire military establishment by disregarding it.

  151. Ha ha ha ha…what you people have not figured out yet, is that party doesn’t matter anymore. Politicians do not have your best interests at heart. Be it Obama or Romney, we all lose. You all act like you can trust Obama and that you don’t trust Romney. You are wrong! You cannot trust any of them. Why is it that both parties always talk about reducing the deficit and debt, but both continue to increase? Politician in general are driving us over a cliff, and it doesn’t matter if it is Obama or Romney, we are still driving off the cliff. People of both parties are too blind to see what is happening, the government is enslaving us all.

  154. How could ANYbody possible be worse that Obama??? Everything has been said over and over and over, so I won’t do it again, but this article is a sick attempt to discredit Mr Romney.

  155. jcgreen2, what you and the rest of your “Repunk-blicans” refuse to see is that we were in QUITE A MESS from your former Pres. Bushy, when President Obama took office. There were 8 yrs. of “mess” to clean up from the house and the senate, and from folks putting money in their pockets. Straightening out that kind of confusion, deception and collusion takes time when you’re up against folks that don’t want the best for the entire country; only for a certain segment. You’d better be glad we DO have a President like Obama who want to improve our country for ALL citizens and not just a segregated few. Thank God for a man with a vision for the PEOPLE!!!!

  156. I agree that Romney’s character should be questioned, but as a foreigner I must admit that Obama’s explanation of Benghazi attack sounded more apologetic than I would expect from US president.
    Obama insisted that attack was spontaneous, inspired by US made Mohamed movie and killing of the ambassador was a result of a mob mentality that followed.
    While Libyan government correctly claimed it was a coordinated and preplanned attack by a militant terrorist group.
    The reports of denied help from US forces in the area are also troublesome, as it seems that Obama wanted to be more of a friend to Libya, then protector of its diplomatic staff.

  157. What a load of left wing rubbish it was the commander in chief who denied the America of duty action and defence of the flag , politics was not in play here . Romney should have rammed this blunder and failure of military command right up the president where it fits best.

  158. It’s amazing when we read this smear piece from a well known radical Liberal, weeks after the incident,that we see clearly the depths of dishonesty and lack of integrity of some leftists. Obama won after he and his surrogates demonized his opponent. The “character” of Obama and his team will be even more transparent when the facts surrounding the Benghazi cover up become known. Our president lied to us and he survived. His reputation and honor won’t.

  159. We as Americans must look at our democracy, and believe it has worked. We cannot just blame Gov Romney. True he was the “Standard Bearer” for his party but, trust he had not made a move without their consent. The rank and file GOP is still in effect since we have not eliminate them as the threat to our society. They lay in wait for the next opportunity to sabotage the President. Karl Rove ” Pinky & the Brain” was given a task that he has failed at. He will not be given another. The first order of buisness as I stated previously is to identify your Congressional Leaders, and put them on notice. We do not have to wait for Congressional term limits. Let them know we are watching them, and that they can be voted out. Start monitoring how they vote on certain bills. Look at their patterns, and see if they are carrying the message that you hired them to address. Each State should be responsible for their Respresentatives.

  160. well I think the President of the United States should allow the keystone pipeline deal to happen for the sakes of jobs and economy. I think there should be safe guards in place to protect the interest of the environment.

  161. Now that its come out that he was completely right and it was the president lying any chance we see an apology? After all the “Mobs” you claim werent mobs they were terrorists, a nd both Romney and Obamaknew this. One choose to lie and say it was not an attack and the other condemned him for the lie. I’d love to see you’re cover up article retracted.

  162. its interesting how a month later it appears the narrative that romney was crass and stupid as portrayed by the media is instead changing into a narrative of … perhaps he was right. taint them today, saint them tommorrow … eh?
