      Romney went to see Israeli PM to boost his foreign policy credentials. No one knows what the pair talked about. Obama has used foreign policy and touted how American image has been redeemed. Romney didn't buy that idea. Some Jews (according o the news) sponsored the anti-islam radical movie. Mid-Easterns and few other countries unleashed their anger on Americans. Romney shapened his attack against the President's rhetoric with regards to America's image and perception in abroad. Netayahu came back to say people wanted to drag me into American politics. Think people! Someone, somewhere knows something that we all dont know.

      God bless America.

        OBAMA HAS NEVER HAD A FORIEGN POLICY,NONE HE HAS EVER LET US ALL KNOW ABOUT. HE JUST SAYS DUMB
        SHIT ALL THE TIME WITH NO REAL SUBSTANCE. FROM THE LAST APPERANCE OF H. CLINTON,FROM HER LOOKS
        I THINK SHE IS FEED UP. JUST AN OBSERVATION----

    And another day where Obama does nothing to help the American people.

    Obama campaigns while out most traveled Secertary of State ever, issues the most sternest of progressive warnings to our frienemies through the Omedia team. What a great president Obama is..., NOT!

    So, in other words more of the same. Today Obama will spend a lot of jet fuel flying around the country (wasn't that suppose to contribute to global warming?), visit a couple of campaign events, then get back to the White House around 8:05. What happen to always being home at 6:30pm for his family?

    Let me put this bluntly...I for one do not think that our duly and legally elected president should assume the position at the whim of Bbi Netanyahu. For any foreign party to assume he would is beyond belief. Our president's job is the represent thebest interests of the American people not kowtow to someone from abroad who always have their hand out. I am appalled that Robme and Lyin Ryan indicate they would be willing to bend over.

      Interest of America???, Unemploy over 8%, new claims up (again) , Our debt is thru the roof. American is torn in 2.

By going campaigning in front of the Ambassadors casket, that is just wrong, like everything else he has done, its not ok if u r to stupid to see this
      look around. Maybe oblunder should go on another world apolagy tour???

        You can't capitalize on the same skillset you acquired 20 years ago in today's market and think you won't be out of job anytime soon. There are about 3,000,000 jobs in America today yet, people think there are no jobs. There are jobs but no skillset to match the jobs.

        President can't take care of your career planning. You have to do it yourself. You can't pride yourself as an experienced Desktop technician with 30 years of experience and be expecting jobs to drop on your table when most companies are now migrating to mobile device. In the same manner, a manufacturing worker requires updated skills to successfully compete for jobs of the 21st century. Good luck if you think any of these candidates can help you shape your career. Take personal responsibility people!

        I recently read an article stating today their are 3.5 million unfilled high paying jobs that are unfilled due to our untrained workforce, and in the next 10 years if the workforce is not retrained the number of unfilled jobs will explode. We need serious funding for retraining workers.

    jean you are so right. Since when does the United States make policy because we are told to by a foreign country? Those who call the president weak are actually bending over so israel can tell us what to do. Romney has no clue about foreign policy and the repo follow's have no clue about anything. Which is obvious by the dumbass post here today,since when does in incumbant president sit at the white house and not campaign? Maybe Bush but then He sat ant the ranch most of the time anyway.

      Apparently you have forgotten about the accidental open mic moment when the President asked for more flexibility from Russia. It seems as the Russia was making some type of a request concerning US policy. The difference is that Israel is our ally.

      Valid point , however this POS has been making Policy without anyone, lettin the illegals all of a sudden in, exec order on fast & furious, sorry but when i see what he has done (history always repeats) I see Moa , Stallin, Hitler all over again, I beg u, yes beg all of u to read Oblunder care it has very little to do with health care, wait to u see the tax increases and the wording, it is real close to propaganda communist leaders have printed. Please prove me wrong and read it im up to appox 900 pages its absolutely scary. Also judy u do not campaign in front of a dead Ambassadors casket!

      Back on Sept. 11, 2001 George W. Bush was on his Permanent Campaign Trail listening to "My Pet Goat".
      If you get a chance (it is online) read: "George W. Bush and the Permanent Campaign Trail Vol. III" by Emily Jane Charnock. No Child Left Behind was his campaign mantra...you remember that not too perfect boondoogle to make Texas school book publisher and a couple of his brothers really wealthy selling not only the books, but the tests to go with the books.

        Please help educate me Jean. President Bush on permanent campaign mode equals bad. Obama on permanent campaign mode is good. Just want to make sure I get it right, or is it left. Being a Liberal is so taxing (no joke intended). I guess to be a true Liberal one must repeat the Liberal mantra, hypocrisy, hypocrisy, hypocrisy, hypocrisy ...

    Clinton said "the era of big government is over". Well it returned with a vengance during the Obama administration.

    Overall government payouts, including middle-class entitlements and anti-poverty / welfare programs, now account for more than a third of all wages and salaries in the United States. Worse, if one includes salaries from government employment, more than half of Americans receive a substantial portion of their income from the government.

    Funny how you wingers start remembering all the f'd up stuff that's wrong when it ain't "your man" in the house. During the "election" and ensuing 8 years of derangement known as Bush II you all were no where to be found and *even more* stuff was f'd up. On that basis, I say take a seat – your opinion is not worth as much as everyone else's right now.

      Your name is perfect for u. Listen stupid it was for the1,000,000,000,000 time the nafta act that caused this mess from your boy, (convicted of perjury) Clinton, I blame bush for doing nothing about it. But bottom line the guy in there now, Oblunder cant find his a$$ with both hamds, so typical dumbocrap, #1 make excuse, #2 point, #3 blame

        NAFTA was an Republican idea !

        Texas, on December 17, 1992, to sign NAFTA. U.S. President George H.W. Bush, Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney and Mexican President Carlos Salinas, each responsible for spearheading and promoting the agreement, ceremonially signed it , but Pres. Clinton came in office before it could be law of the land. With some modifications to protect American workers...

        Representatives approved NAFTA on November 17, 1993, by a vote of 234 to 200. The agreement's supporters included 132 Republicans and 102 Democrats. NAFTA passed the Senate 61-38. Clinton signed it into law on December 8, 1993; it went into effect on January 1, 1994"

        House of Representatives:
        House of Representatives

        YES NO
        Democrats 102 156
        Republicans 132 43
        Independents 1

        Senate YES NO
        Democrats 27 28
        Republicans 34 10
        No Vote (1 Democrat))

      Notsosmart. A short time ago, I remember a comment that stated us "right wingers" believe our economic problems began when the President took office. This same person also stated that the economic collapse was the result of decades of bad policy. This is a person who has stated many times that it was Bush's fault. Which is it? Did the economic crisis begin when Bush took office or did it build up from decades of bad policy?

      The fact is that Bush did not have the power to crash the economy alone. It took a number of key players including Barney Franks who supported Frannie, thus the housing bubble. NAFTA also contributed. There is plenty of blame to go around. The problem with arguments like your is that you are trying to finding a single cause.

        You mean 2 unfunded wars compounded with unnecessary tax cuts during a time of two unfunded wars was not the problem? Mathematician you are not.

        I suppose you believe the housing bubble had nothing to do with it then.

This should never have happened they were more interested in not offending some idiot Libyian than providing security for Americans. We spend billions and risk lives to help that country toward democracy (if you can call islamist rule democracy) and NOW we kiss their @$$es... The same old hillray and barry/barack.
