Did Obama try to upstage Romney on Israel?
Washington (CNN) - The day before Mitt Romney makes a highly publicized trip to Israel, President Barack Obama on Friday signed a bill passed by Congress designed to increase security ties with the Jewish state.
Both the timing of Friday's event and the presence of TV cameras opened the White House to accusations of political maneuvering in a presidential election year.
Obama's schedule for this week, distributed by the White House on July 20, made no mention of the signing of the United States-Israel Enhanced Security Cooperation Act. The measure won final approval from Congress on July 17, receiving strong bipartisan support.
White House spokesman Jay Carney denied any political intent with the timing of the bill signing, saying the measure passed last week and Obama was traveling from Sunday to Wednesday.
"The president's been on the road, and today was the day to sign it," he said Friday. (READ MORE)
The President does not have to try to upsage the "want-to be"
He already has
The President is well within his rights to do what he did. He signed a bill passed by Congress by a large majority. As far as upstaging Romney is concerned, why not? republicans' intense hatred for Obama is well known from the day he was sworn in. No stops are being spared to somehow make him a one term President. GOP has openly said it millions of times. As Sam Donaldson said recently, 'The reason Republicans hate Obama is not because of what he has done or not, but because he is of Afro-American origin'.
Based on Romney's ever-changing statements from the beginnings of the Republican primaries until today, I would not trust him to be the local dog catcher and nether should the international community.
If the president upstaged the lying, hiding-the tax-reports, shifting positions wanna be, then so be it.
Why do we support Israel?
Who made us the world's babysitter?
Ever hear of security treaties and agreements? We also have them with NATO nations. You opposed to that as well?
YOU MEAN LIKE THE ONE OBAMA JUST SIGNED?
SO WHAT'S IT GOING TO BE REPUBLITARDS? EITHER YOU PRAISE OBAMA FOR HELPING ISRAEL OR BLAME HIM FOR MITT ROMNEY LOOKING LIKE A LYING LOSER. TOUGH CHOICE, BUT I'M GUESSING THE 'BLAME OBAMA' INSTINCT IS JUST TOO STRONG.
This president hasn't had the time of day for Isreal till now ... wonder why????
Sorry BILL, when the Republican candidates were bashing Obama's relationsip with Israel, ISRAELI LEADERS publicly acknowledged that the Obama Administration has backed Israel in almost every way. If you don't believe it talk to them.
THE REPUBLITARDS ARE REACHING FOR ANY REASON TO HATE THE PRESIDENT SO EVEN SOMETHING GOOD HAPPENS THEY BASH HIM. THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL ARE PROBABLY SHAKING THEIR HEADS AT HOW PSYCHOTIC THE REPUBLITARDS HAVE BECOME AND ARE HOPING FOR AN OBAMA VICTORY COME NOVEMBER.
OH TO THOSE OFFENDED BY THE NAME CALLING, IT'S REALLY SIMPLE. STOP ACTING LIKE A REPUBLITARD.
NOW TRY NOT TO GO CATATONIC FROM THAT LITTLE PARADOX.
that is exactly what I would expect to hear from a liberal... You are in essencse saying that it is your way or the highway... So much for the all inclusive party... the only party that is truly diverse...
Judy, on this very website a year ago the liberals were bashing Israel both from the administration and from the liberals that post here. It is so noice to have it both ways....
Is not that the USA is the world's sitter...Israel is an important ally....something very important to mention...Israel has never been safer than now...thanks to President Obama....everything has been done behind close doors and with the outmost respect and secrecy...which is vital for world sensitive events....you don't need a Mormon leaning into a wall pretending to pray...(how the hoot do I say this)......to show support for Israel...I have tons of Jewish friends in Florida and they all know it...technology support is key in these type of situations.....Iran cannot shot a missile....their coordinates feed will take it to the sea...away from civilian populations...Iran knows it....that's why they're negotiating at the UN table....what's shocking is that Romney, as the potential Republican candidate, has been briefed .... yet he goes out, blasts the President with lies.....when everything along with his tax returns come to light....GAME OVER !!!!....GOP knows it.....
This is funny because Barry could not even fill Mr.Romney's shoes let alone upstage a Girls Scout convention at this juncture.
Romney is an embarrassment to the United States. Under Obama, Americans have become re-accustomed to not having the world hate us. Then Romney steps foot in London, insults our closest ally and has 60,000 people jeering him (including the arch conservatives of England). If Americans are foolish enough to vote for Mitt we can start looking forward to world hating us again like they did under the last Republican administration.
WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO UPSTAGE A GIRL SCOUT? ARE YOU SOME SICK PEDOBEAR?
fill romneys shoes? are you high? romney is something the President wipes off his shoe when the White House grounds crew does not find every "gift" Bo left behind.
That is just plain sick DEcember... you are in need of meds.....
Is "upsage" a NEW Olympic event that the Romney's have their horse in?
recisely. The pretender romney is on the President's stage, not vice versa.
It's "upstage" "Lamone". Learn how to spell, you jackhole.
who cares. Good for him if he got the jump on mitt. Mitt would have done the same thing. He was signing it anyway. Ol mitt the twitt as the british call him will only embarass himself more in isreal. . Lets see you bend down and kiss jewish butts ol mitt the twit. So much for not being a political trip. Hope you don;t meet any top securiety because youll blab it all over. Forward. 2012
Forward ??? how can anybody with a brain say we are moving forward, you must of flunked math !!!!!!
Try looking at the economic charts from the last administration compared to this administration. You are the one who must have failed math.
You must **of** flunked math?
Wow... Impressive. What a way to prove the lack of a brain. You must have flunked grammar. What an absolute retard!
Hey judy, it's Israel, not Isreal. Get off welfare, throw away the food stamps and move out of your section 8 house. Go try to do something productive rather than sponge off of others.
Tyranny is what this administration is all about.
For the record it's "wannabe".
You should go to other countries like Syria, Cuba, Russia to see what tyranny is all about. Count your blessings that you are in America. Control yourself. Must have been bribed by the Repubs.
count your blessings and vote obama out. teranny is what Obama is about. what else did he mean when he wispered to putin. "after the election I will have more flexability" to disarm America. what of his socialist background and mentoring. saying that others are more teranical than Obama is not useful. as Jefferson said about king george, the king is a tyrant we might as well call him a tyrant. the evidence is there for those who are willing to research and open their eyes.
the best time to stop a tryant is be fore he has nothing to loose. before he is reelected.
You mean like you were bribed with a welfare check?
I have ... vak in the 70's when the USSR was still communist... when Italy wanted to be and East Germany was... Were you??? I have that kowledge base to make those comparsisons? Do you??? or are you talking present day?? or do you have that experience at all???
Have you lived there?
Wow. Dont be wantin nun o that socialist terrany. Now lits git some tahrs fer the chevy sos we kin git er down offn tha cinder blocks
Have you? I spent well over a year in Europe, living there in many diiferent nations.. not just a day or two... weeks and months and not all of them were free... What an a $$ inine question. I don't come to the table with blown up statements and half truthes...
Obama is doing his darnest to make us more like Cuba or Russia......more of a reason to get the bum out of office
Wan't there a report a year or 2 ago that said the intellegentsia was moving out of Venezuala??? I suspect that will happen here as well...
So tyranny is the word of the day from fox and talk radio obviously since the rightards are spouting it. At least this one knows how to spell it, even if he does not know what it means any more than he and the rest of the right know the meaning of socialism, communism, fascism, citizen, Constitutional.....
Should he not just say "yeah, so what?" Not like there are any standards of professionalism expected by this administration.
The Romney people crying for a handicap, they want a chance to allow Romney to trash this president relationship with Israel and promote his own none existing foreign policy experience with fake credential. Obama has the power of the pen to upstage Romney the weasel. If I was president running for reelection I would Use it, wouldn't you. Romney, when it comes to politics, he is out of his league. Look at his first day in Great Britain. Need I say more?
Please follow your doctor's orders and take your medication as directed.
Again I say that untill now Obama has only paid lip service to Isreal. He like most of you believe that Isreal shouldbe turned into palestinian state... What a brown shirt attitude...
Again I say that untill now Obama has only paid lip service to Isreal. He like most of you believe that Isreal shouldbe turned into palestinian state... sounds like the 1930's and 40's all over again
I will SAY THIS AGAIN – Israeli LEADERS have publicly acknowledged that the Obama Administration backed Israel in almost every way. On the record Billy Boy.
and I will say this again ... a year ago this website and its bloggers were not supportive of Israel.... It is so nice to have it both ways.... Tell me Cynthiaa L. Will you work for the new state run news agency??? You seem to be very good at re-writing history.
Here's another one for ya Bill – Mormons baptizing DEAD JEWS.
Of course you are going for the shock factor there ... and frankly Ifind itoffensive as well.... here is one for ya, The dead in Cjicago vote early and often...... and the vote democratic.
In an interview with Israel's Deputy Prime Misister and Minister of Defense, who is also a former Prime Minister of Israel today, EHUD BARAK said that though historically administrations from both political sides in the U.S. have supported the Jewish State, President Obama's support, security-wise is unparalled.
Here's another shock factor for ya, Bill,.....The Israelis have an INDIVIDUAL MANDATE for HEALTHCARE. Forcing everyone to have insurance. The people love it.
Yeah, "Mitt the Twitt" Talk about he's outrage with leaks from the white house and here he is in Great Britain, as soon as he left from meeting top security, he blab it all over the place . . . it wasn't a mere leak, it was a full blown water fall. "Mitt the Twitt" I like that name for Romney, it fit him just fine . . . "Mitt the Twitt" His new worldly name as he has been crowned
'Mitt The Twitt" Too funny!
It figures... you have less imagination than the British...
Bill, you've got nothing. give it up
On what grounds do you make that statement? If someone wants to copy cat the British press ... its up to them... However after spending time in England, I have found that their humor can be rather pedestrian... Especially when they resort to name calling as a form of attracting attention.. BUT it should be expected Iguess when you look at the posters here.
Seriously CNN? Are you reporting news or adding to the toxicity of this political environment by asking such a leading question? Liberal media my tushy!
And BTW, if Willard can't take the heat, get out of the kitchen. His whining is irritating and very unmanly.
OBAMA/BIDEN/FIRST LADY MICHELLE 2012!!!
Did Bozo Biden learn how to read yet??
Not from a teleprompter... 😉
Obama = Panderer-In-Chief
Yes Obama was trying to up-stage Romney ... but ... what does it matter
"Mitt the Twitt" his new handle! Pass it on!
What grade did you drop out of school ??
He went to DC public school.
Aren't you guys concerned that people overseas are whispering Mitt's trip abroad should be called, 'A$$-GATE' ? OUCH.
Got it , Mitt the twit
Any thing for a vote why wont this jerk try fixing the economy what an inept baffoon
This moron has had 4 yrs and has only sent this once great country backwards. why are giving more money to isreal that we are borrowing from china. i just dont get it, this ninkompoop gives money away like we have it. What an embarassment he has been to this country.
WOW!!!! you need help, why so bitter? why do you feel the need to call the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES names?Alright come clean, are you related to Sean Hannity? lol
No probably getting even for "the Shrub" or W, or the theif... Just saying ... or don't you remember that??? OH thats Right .. you are a liberal .... you wouldn't remember that.
why do you feel the need to call the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES names?
I have a small weeny.
Sorry to hear about your shortcomings, bb. Is it true what they say about hands and feet?
Take all our money will you? Apparently the billions we give them is not enough, so tired of these greedy zionist pigs. Its nice to see that our first black president continues to support this apartheid state, whats the difference between an all jewish state and all white south african state.
I guess you know nothing about the history of Israel! You seem to know nothing about the folks who want them off of the planet!
Sad to say, but, the first boatload of Jewish refuges from Germany were turned away by our country, forced to go back to a living hell. Maybe it's why we support them now – out of guilt.
I did not know about that but I know that those of us who are Christians do not support Israel out of a sense of guilt. It is much deeper than that! the reasons are spiritually and Biblically based!. I don't appreciate the info though! I don't think we support Japan strictly based upon guilt although that might be a factor!
**I do appreciate the info.
If so then why did President Washinton write a letter to the Jews of Newport Rhode Island with the following statement included in it?
“To Bigotry No Sanction, to Persecution No Assistance”
Appearently the conviction of the founding fathers and Our first President were forgotten... Now you use it as an argument... For what???
Because you spout off like the U.S. has never leaned anti-semetic. Even though the Founding Fathers said some lofty things that I agree with doesn't change the fact that we have had some hand at throwing gas on the fire of discrimination in our nation's past and present. That isn't re-writing our history – that's facing the truth.
Just to clarify – The Jewish refugees I was talking about above, were trying to flee Hitler. And, we weren't the only country to turn them away. But, shamefully we did and that my friend you can look up.
and teh ones I was talking about were over a hundred years before that.... You seem to think that you are as pure as the driven snow when it comes to prejudices... but look at the way you treat your fellow citizens... you are as bad as thosethat have persecuted 50, 100, ir eve 500 years ago.
Let me guess stan, one of your favorite books was Mein Kampf, right?. Do you also goose step when you walk?
Get some help, Stan.
Take your hate somewhere else! You must be one of those who claim the Tea party is racist and then you write such an assine comment. You are the kind of people Hitler loved-mindless, stupid, and ignorant and follow believe that kind of garbage. The CCN moderator must have been sleeping to let you write that trash!
Really? Study your history – Hitler would have loved the far right radicals.
He love sheep..people that allowed someone else to do their thinking... Just like every person that spews their party line and does not thinkfor themselves... December seems to be a pretty good candidate for that....
We have The Islamist State Of Iran.
The Islamist State of Syria.
You got a problem with The Jewish State Of Isreal ?
There are 22 nations that are Islamic.
There is "ONE" Jewish State.
But you have a problem with this ?
I think its pretty clear what your agenda is.
Romnley is a grown up. He'll handle it. He won't fall apart like Obama every time.
Obama would actually have to support Israel for that to happen.
Obama sent the the missile defense to shoot down Hamas Rockets.
Obama has taken Israels side at the UN.
Maybe Obama needs to stand on the front steps of the White house
and scream this at the top of his lungs ?
No, as usual, Obama quietly takes care of business.
You dont understand diplomacy or politics.
Let's see obama believes he has a poor relationship with Israel so congress bails him out with more spending that my grand kids have to pay for in the form of higher taxes. Mr Obama rearanges his schedule to try to oneups Mr. Romney. This may be a good short term political move but will back fire. This will back fire because up until now the Obama administration has been anti Isreal. three years of being anti Isreal does not a signing mend. the obama relationship with Isreal is very simular to his handling of the economy. he may not be responsible for the state of the relationship but he has made it worse.
WoW! Just have a look at the ignorance.
The Israeli PM have said that they don't need America's help at all. Just research it. It is really sad that I have to pay taxes for all this shit happening in the Shittiest place in the world, and see so many great American's lose their jobs and suffer.
I don't know whats happening here, I might soon think of relocating myself to somewhere else that thinks about their citizens. A country that protects itself or takes the US for a ride (financially) , lolz
Obama is not anti Israel.
The bill was approved days ago.
Obama was away
He signed it as soon as he got back to Washington.
Sorry Obama didnt just put his superman costume on
and be in two places at once..
Makes you wonder if Romney's people really want him to win. ?!
The Rom Knee super candidate robot has experienced some difficulties.
We at "Rom Knee" are pleased to announce that we have worked out
some of the bugs.
Rom Knee will no longer "flip", when he should "flop".
The Rom Knee will also no longer be able to insert both feet into mouth.
When one foot goes in, the other foot becomes disabled.
We are also working on some software problems.
Rom Knee will no longer be able to answer questions
regarding, poor people, blacks, gays, taxes, bain, Massachussetts, and woman.
We hope that you will be satisfied with the "New" and "Improved" Rom Knee.

IT'S NOT HIS PEOPLE, IT'S MITT. HIS PEOPLE, THE REPUBLITARDS WANT THIS ELECTION TO BE JUST ABOUT OBAMA. TOO BAD IT DOESN'T WORK THAT WAY.
Don't scream, no one is listening to your rant.
when are you scheduled to graduate the 3rd grade was that 2016? go read something outside of the democratic play book. get a job, grow old or something. get a life.
Of course this kind of response is all a Republican has because they really can't actually respond with what Mitt the Twit would do the country because he's keeping it a secret – like everything else. Remember when Richard Nixon ran for a second term and he said he had a secret plan to end the war in Viet Nam? His secret plan was to say we won and pull out all the troops. He could have done the same things years before and saved thousands and thousands of lives. Romney seems to like secrets – just like old tricky Dick.
were you even alive when Nixon was president? if so what is the difference between Nixon and Clinton. both lied under oath and tried to cover it up. the only thing that was different was that Nixon had repsect enough for the country to resigned rather than dragging the country through an impeachment and was haited for it, clinton however out charmed everyone with the help of the media with his "I did not have sexual reations with that woman" defense and beat the impeachment but I say from a moral perspective coving up knowing about a break-in of the democrates is far less than covering up the molistation of an inturn.
"Tricky Dicky" was one of the all time best campain slogans to deminize someone, I'll give you that. Romney isn't anything like Nixion. In fact Obama's morals are closer to Nixion than anyones.
what does the Vietnam war have to do with Romney?nothing but while you are talking about wars was it not Obama who said he had a plan to end the wars in Iraq and Afganistan and close getmo? I guess the plan was bushes plan, Obama pulled out troops from Iraq on bushes timetable not his own. once in office he realized the importance of keeping getmo open. It will be interesting how obama will end the afganistan war even after seal team 6's success. but obama is having too much fun with his drone strikes to stop the war.
Of course this kind of response is all a socialist dream. I need my Obama phone, welfare check, faked disability check, section 8 house and foodstamps. I drive on the roads and bridges but I didn't pay for them because I only take from the system. How dare anyone try to make me work or even try to look for work!! Obama keeps giving me free things and money so he's got my vote (maybe I can even vote for him several times if ACORN hooks me up).
You really had to reach for that one jules... Most people here don'tremember Richard M. Nixon... you seem to remember only 1 thing about him... Do you remember that he also negotiated a trade agreement with China? As for Vietnam .... that is what the people in this country wanted.... the end no matter what. They got what they wanted.
Obama doubled the national debt, which had taken more than two centuries to accumulate, in one year.
He then proposed to double the debt again within 10 years.
He criticized a state law that he admitted he never even read.
He joined the country of Mexico and sued a state in the United States to force that state to continue to allow illegal immigration.
He pronounced Navy Corpsman like Navy Corpseman.
He put 87,000 workers out of work by arbitrarily placing a moratorium on offshore oil drilling on companies that have one of the best safety records of any industry because one foreign company had an accident.
He used a forged document as the basis of the moratorium that would render 87,000 American workers unemployed.
He is first President to need a Teleprompter installed to be able to get through a press conference.
He spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to take his First Lady to a play in NYC.
He reduced the retirement plan holdings of GM stock by 90% and given the unions a majority stake in GM.
He made a joke at the expense of the Special Olympics.
He gave Gordon Brown a set of inexpensive and incorrectly formatted DVDs, when Gordon Brown had given him a thoughtful and historically significant gift.
He gave the Queen of England an iPod containing videos of his speeches.
He bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia.
He visited Austria and made reference to the nonexistent "Austrian language."
He filled his cabinet and circle of advisers with people who cannot seem to keep current in their income taxes.
He stated that there were 57 states in the United States.
He flew all the way to Denmark to make a five minute speech about how the Olympics would benefit him walking out his front door in his home town.
He is so Spanish illiterate as to refer to "Cinco de Cuatro" in front of the Mexican ambassador when it was the 5th of May (Cinco de Mayo), and continued to flub it when he tried again.
He burned 9,000 gallons of jet fuel to go plant a single tree on Earth Day.
He okayed Air Force One flying low over millions of people followed by a jet fighter in downtown Manhattan causing widespread panic.
He failed to send relief aid to flood victims throughout the Midwest with more people killed or made homeless than in New Orleans.
He created the position of 32 Czars who report directly to him, bypassing the House and Senate on much of what is happening in America.
He ordered the firing of the CEO of a major corporation, even though he had no constitutional authority to do so.
What is it about Obama that makes him so brilliant and impressive?
Can't think of anything?
Don 't worry. He's done all this in less than 4 years – so you don’t have that much time to come up with an answer.
Every statement and action in this is factual and directly attributable to Barrack Hussein Obama.
Every bumble is a matter of record and completely verifiable.
HE ACTUALLY WANTS US TO RE-ELECT HIM.
WAKE UP AMERICA!!! 2012 IS UPON US.
Frank Marshall Davis
Of course this kind of response is all a socialist dream....
Guess you dont understand what "American" socialism is.
Taxes are paid.
Those taxes are then used to build roads and bridges , police and law enforcement,
fire departments, schools and teachers.
Guess you dont understand or like "socialism".
Thank god we have it.
WHY ARE YOU GUYS(GOP) SO DARN ANGRY? YES YOU ARE STUCK WITH SWISS MITT, BUT LOOK AT THE GLASS AS HALF FULL, YOU COULD BE STUCK WITH SARAH P. LOL,LOL,LOL,LOL
Mostly we are dissapointed with zombamas like you ... as for the president... its his policies.. you can't seem to accept that as the reason though... I wonder who as the axe to grind... could it be you?
IT IS PEOPLE LIKE WAYNE WHO ARE TRUE REPUBLITARDS AND ARE CAUSING THIS COUNTRY TO FAIL. JUST HOW MUCH MORE ARE YOU GOING TO BLAME AND HATE OBAMA FOR NOTHING. SO HE SIGNS SOMETHING THAT HELPS ISRAEL AND HE STILL GETS POUNDED FOR IT, AND WHY? IT MAKES MITT ROMNEY LOOK BAD? WHOSE FAULT IT THAT? YOU PEOPLE ARE JUST INSANE.
You know I have noticed that most conservatives leave the childish name calling behind... Liberals ... well not so much!
Wong bill, read your post above
I have re-read my posts... no where do I find that I have posted thinngs that are in the same vien as republitards, neocons ... I have on theother hand compared ideaologies.... and that is a bit different. On the one hand the insulfts are personal .. on the other hand it is ideaologies not a personal attack... try that againl....
Few Republicans have shied away from using terms like "Libtard".
Or calling The President, "Obummy", or other such third grade names.
The gloves are off.
You get what you give.
Of course he tried to up stage Mr. Romney. It's all the Marxist has. With single digit approval numbers in Israel...... he need's to do something. The Marxist has turned his back on Israel for 3.5 years now......all of sudden he cares.....he's interested. BULL SQUEEZE! The Marxist has lost... black votes..... middle America (working American's that is)...... Jewish votes......Marxism doesn't work. Luckily the voter's saw through it in 2010.... and they will in November. He's a joke......paper tiger..... suit w/ nothing in it......ass clown....... Hey cool-aid drinkers.... put down the remote control....stop watching Opera...... pick up a book...... get informed. ...... really........ spend some time with the kids you keep having for welfare checks.
you are right, it not just about Obama's Jobs killing over regulation. its not just about obama and his outsorcing and off shoring of Jobs using billions of borrowed stimulus money which stimulated jobs outside the country but did nothing hear once the stimulus ran out of money. its not about Obama and his massive increase in government spending. its not about Obama's ponse scheme of artifically increasing teacher jobs and knowing that he will benefit from the teachers unions dues which go almost singularly to democrates at the expense of all americans democrats or not. then claiming that is where "the economy is weakest is the public sector" and that "the privet sector is doing just fine",. Its not about obama and his failure for the past 1000+ days to get a budget in an effort to hide the gross overspending. it is not about obama and the worst jobs record since the great depression. Its not about obama and his efforts to punish success. its not about Obama and his crony capitalism. " its the ecconomy stupid".
Chances are you may know who said that first. it did not ring as true then as it does now. vote obama out, free the congress of the strangle hold of democrates and return the United states to greatness. once again it is not just about obama its the ecconomy stupid.
BLAH, BLAH, MORE REPUBLITARD TALKING POINTS. YOU CAN'T EVEN STAY ON TOPIC. JUST SHUT YOUR MOUTH IF YOU CAN'T HANDLE IT.
SO IN CONCLUSION. THE PRESIDENT SIGNED SOMETHING THAT'S SUPPOSEDLY GOOD FOR ISRAEL. GOOD FOR THEM. I GUESS THAT MAKES REPUBLITARDS WHO CLAIM HE IS AGAINST ISRAEL NOTHING MORE THAN PETTY LIARS. ISN'T THAT RIGHT WAYNE?
the demand of returning to the unstable boundires of 67' they only democratic country in the area and he hasn't paid them a visit. publically embarrased the leader how is that for starters for the Nobel Prize winner?
by REPUBLITARDS you mean those who have a good understanding of history have meaningful jobs have made something of themselfs. those who take the time to realize that the media is biased and take action to get the facts from all sides to find the truth. those who want to lift and enlighten others and can do so. those who depend on themselves and not government handouts. people who understand that things are earned not given. If that is what it means to you to be a republitard, I plead guilty. demacants have some weird vocabulary

SAYING THE WORD REPUBLITARD AND THE WORD 'MEANINGFUL' IN THE SAME SENTENCE RUINS ALL CREDIBILITY.
OBAMA DOES NOT HATE ISRAEL SO GET OVER IT, MOVE ON. SO HE HASN'T PAID A VISIT, SENT FLOWERS, BIG DEAL. THAT DOESN'T MAKE ISRAEL ANY LESS AMERICA'S GIRLFRIEND SO STOP YOUR WHINING.
Coupling "meaningful" with your arguments, would be a first! Perhaps it would be a never!
Again ... another fine example ofliberals name calling.. and conservatives not. Hmmmm... Desperation???
STEVEO, YOU CANNOT ARGUE WITH ME ON THIS ISSUE SO SHUT YER TRAP. WHAT DO YOU REPUBLITARDS HAVE AGAINST OBAMA FOR NOT VISITING ISRAEL? HOW MANY JEWS HAVE VISITED ISRAEL IN THE LAST FOUR YEARS? YOU ARE IN FOR A SURPRISE. AMERICA'S RELATIONSHIP WITH ISRAEL CANNOT BE MORE STRONGER AND THAT IS FACT. SO QUIT YOUR WHINING AND KEEP WATCHING AS MITT ROMNEY MAKE A FURTHER A-S-S OF HIMSELF.
Well December 2012, time for school
1. I never said I disagree with you on this issue
2. I am poking fun at your post above mine,
3. Shut my trap? Back in the day, I would have challenged you to some fisticuffs but I was told not to hit girls!
OOOH A TOUGH GUY. IF YOU HAVE NOTHING SUBSTANTIAL TO SAY ABOUT THE SUBJECT OTHER THAN TO ATTEMPT TO BELITTLE ME THEN RESPECTFULLY, SHUT YER TRAP.
December, you are nothing more than a verbal bully...
SO WHAT WILL HE PROMISE POLAND AFTER HE THREW THEM UNDER THE BUS?
I'm not belittling you. You are doing an expert job of that yourself!!
wayne, trying to have a meaningful discussion with DEcember 2012 is like trying teach algebra to a rock. He's hard left all the way and thinks Biden is a genius, on par with Einstein. Whatever Obama says is complete gospel to him and not to be questioned whatsoever. Sheesh, the guy even thinks Pelosi is attractive and smart.
Drinking more Faux Noise with your cheerios, we all can see....
Faux noise? Did you just make that up? Shall we assume you watch the screech owls on MSNBC? You like Mr. "Tingly legs", do ya?
Steveo, faux noise has been used for fox news for years. where have you been
No! "faux Noise" is a pet name given by those who love M MESS MBC and Mr.Tingly Legs! Where have YOU been?
The stranglehold in congress has been Republican.
You can toss the rest of your rant out.
You lost the argument right there.
I "dare" even one Republican to stand up and tell the truth.
Eight years of George Bush was a complete disaster.
America is the engine that drives the world economy.
Bush "trashed" that engine.
Its not just the USA hurting from this.
It has impacted the economy of every other country on earth.
And you "IDIOTS" want to put Romney in
the White House and continue those same policies.
GE is moving jobs overseas like mad...and their CEO is obama's jobs guy....so figure that one out. The whole obama thing is a sham....and some of you still drink his cool-aid...
Mr. Romney doesn't have to have The POTUS up stage him. Romney needs more than up-stageing to get in the REALITY of running for any Political position in the Free World. Even our Senators we have right now far pass the Romney discrace he has shown not only to the Foreign Leaders but here at home too ( TAXE RETURNS ? ) Just to start out with. Anyhow that guy is not going to Represent this country after everything he stands for. Mitt Romney is nothing even close to matching up with President Obama. He needs to go back to Wallstreet and do what he does best, Spread sheets, manipulation of funds, destroying bussinesses and stuffing huge amounts of money in bank accounts overseas so he doesn't have to account to the American way of paying TAXES !
Did you see the article here on cnn that laid to rest the myth of the 200/250k starting point??? The tax Bill passed by the senate (democratically controlled) passed there version of the extension of the bush tax cuts ... and low and behold some not all families mkaing 80k per year will see there taxes go up.... You accuse Mr. Romney of not living in the real world andyet you can stand here and talk about him paying taxes... You do not even understand the politics of your own party....
Boy oh boy, Bill, I'll bet your taxes are fun to decipher. You can only use an eraser just so much before it looks like one big smudge. But, you my friend, are NOT running for president (that would really be a stretch in anyone's imagination)
MITT SHOW YOUR TAX RETURNS FOR AT LEAST 10 YRS. AND PROVE YOU AREN'T A CROOK!!
Tell you what Cynthia... I'll post mine if you post yours.... and you did not even address the point of that mythical number.
Have been following Bill in STL post's.
Facts mean nothing to Bill.
Bill wants so bad to defend his brand "R",
thats truth and facts can be tossed aside.
You can assume the same of me.
But whenever anything is posted of interest,
i always do some homework.
Some people dont care about "truth".
They just want to support thier side.
Democrats are not perfect, but they care more about
this country than the Republicans do.
Help get us out of this mess by voting Obama.
Whats Romney doing ?
He fled the country so he didnt have to answer anymore
questions about Bain Capitol or his taxes.
He pissed off The British.
In his support of Israel he has inflamed
the Arab world, and lets see what damage he can do in Poland.
You Republican Obama haters need to grow up.
Your party was infiltrated and taken over by the far right.They had a mission under George Bush.
That mission has not been completed.
315 million people in the United States....THE MIDDLE CLASS,
are only here to make the Rich......RICHER.
The Republicans call it "class warfare".
That war started under Ronald Reagan, and the middle class has
been going down hill since.
The war is not over.
Romney is just the latest entry into that war.
I understand politics.
You dont understand the people who do not care about "
barrys got nothing else going for him. Even with all the libby media spin, barry loses in Nov. BELIEVE IT!
Barry Manilow ?
Coca-Coca Bana!! I feel it, baby.
Ooops --Coco cabana. I forgot the words! Ha! Manilow, he knew Barry like no other.
Copa Cabana! You're welcome!
Thank you Steveo – I knew I wasn't getting it even the second try!
You're welcome! Now enough of the niceties! Back to POLITICS! Ha!
Just trying to buy some more votes
President Obama doesn't have to do anything to upstage Romeny. Obama is charismatic, intelligent, elegant, well informed and always looks and sounds presidential. The other one simply isn't and doesn't.
LOSE TO WHO? MITT THE TWIT? YOU GOT TO BE JOKING.
Nope ... Very Very Serious
WELL YOU'RE VERY, VERY, SERIOUSLY DELUDED.
If you say so,,,, BTW when you finally find Timothy Leary ... tell lhim to stay ooutside with you!
frank marshall i have never been on food stamps own my own house served my country . you kow what they say about people that assume? Forward 2012 our people that think like frank will run this country.
Judy The only assumption made is that you are liberal... and that you are willing to pay for the takers needs....
Don't preach judy, I served 22 years in the military and have never been without a job. I doubt you're even telling the truth, since almost every one of your posts is fiction. You believe all the contradictions unconditionally and continually regurgitate whatever the latest party line is. You probably haven't thought for yourself in years.
To Frank Marshall and Fearless Freep from a cold war-Vietnam veteran: BRAVO!!.
.Keep up the fight against ignorance and misinformation
mitt the twitt mitt the twitt the nowhereman !!! You repos sure know how to pick them. !!!!
Another person with less imagination than the British....
But you sure can pick them, community organizer, friends with terrorists, friends and business partners with criminals, love the preachers who tell you to hate America, believe that you need a SS# in every state you live in, apply for college as a foreign exchange student, seek out and only associate with known communists and socialists, be proud of your college and university records and thesis but seal them so NOONE can find out what's really true.
new poll 68% jewish americans support our president Mitt the twitt. Forward forward
That should be troublesome to someone like you... after all you claim to be inclusive... the party that is made up of a cross section of Americans.... But then perhaps you are not.... You may have diversity of ethnicity, but you don not have the diversity of thought. Only those people who think like you can join the special club... wait ...sounds sorta childish... like the name calling thing...
BLAH BLAH BLAH LOSER TALK
Jewish people are very smart, they know who's heart is sincere, who truly cares about "ALL" people, it's a sad part of history, they have been to hell and back. So just because mittens has adelson in his back pocket, "DOES NOT" mean they are not aware of what is going on.
Upstaging Romney isn't something that takes much conscience effort.
Lets see if I get another phishing download virus attempt by posting on here again. LMAO
Anyway, it's too late for Obama to upstage anything let alone Mr. Romney @ anything. Unless of course Obama resigned today, but that would call for dancing in the streets.
You would have to be crazy or no very educated to believe President Obama will not be re elected PERIOD. That’s a fact the Republicans are very much aware of, but they are doing what they are suppose to do and put up a fight. President Obama is the first president to take a giant step in reforming health care, and he will be the first president re elected with a bad economy.
Now if you really think Money Mitt is going to win the election then you shouldn’t be on this site. I can understand if you don’t like the President’s policies, but to think he’s not going to win in November is delusional.
There are not enough Democratic votes or independent votes to put him over the top so commonsense would tell you some Republicans are crossing lines and defecting to the other side. Money Mitt has no foreign diplomacy skills or National Defense knowledge to be effective anywhere abroad. He should just stick to what he knows best, business and outsourcing jobs…..
What's he supposed to do, tell Israel to hold its breath until after the election? That's stupid (like most of the GOP's manufactured 'sins' of his) and would be far more political than just doing it when it's ready to be done. These people are such jealous crybabies.
"Upstage"???? HE is the PRESIDENT! Duuuuhhh!
Of course e did. He governs by " sound bites" on the evening news
If and when Romney insults Israel I'm sure they'll shut their doors on him, and why in the world should Poland allow him on there soil?
He is not bringing anything but costing US tax payers to foot his security detail for a private vacation.
It's Saturday and Obama lies.
Tomorrow is Sunday. What happens then?
YOU GO TO CHURCH AND LIE TO YOURSELF.
Well December, your only half right! Tomorrow I will go to church and there are no lies involved! Sorry try again!
WHATEVER YOU SAY.
Whatever I say? What!, no cute comeback? You raising a white flag and in front of the entire blog? I dunno December, the left is gonna be upset with you for losing an arguement! Not quite sure why though, you'd figure they'd be used to it by now! That's why you all resort to calling names! No argument!
I love seeing my tax $ paying for this 1/4 of a billionaire to pretend play at potus! Go back to salt lake city were you used up tons of tax payers money to pretend again that you "saved" the Olympics. What a loser! Wake up people M.R. cares less about you!
Explain to me then, if you can, why the president says 200/250K will pay more taxes and the democratically controlled Senate chose 80k as the starting point for tax increases....
And so, yet again, you don't care that he is actually trying to be more reasonable.
Okay, how lieing being more reasonable? Hook, line and sinker .... They got you!
He is not using taxpayers money, not like the present first family who travels on the taxpayer money with friends and relatives and then tells everyone they are paying for it, according to their taxreturn they can't afford it.
Mitt claimed a $77,000 tax deduction for his Olympic Dancing Horse. He is a rich man,....why do we all pay for his friggin' horse hobby?
this show you just how bad this moreom is he will do anythig to show look what did get this moreon out of office no more obummer he really needs to go
He signs a bill passed by congress and that's a bad thing, he doesn't sign a bill passed by congress and that is a bad thing.. Can someone tell me, what is a good thing. This just so childish. Can't we be happy that they all did something for their pay. This really needs to stop, who ever comes up with all this seed planting..
Passing a bill that is responsibile to the people of this country... that would be a good thing, and a novelty!
Yes, Bill, passing a 'bill' for the good of the country IS A GOOD THING. – Like the Affordable Healthcare Act.
Your man Mitt praised Israel's 'Socialist Gov't run Healthcare System'. Admiring the fact that Israelis pay 8% of GDP for healthcare verses OUR 18% GDP costs for ours.
Pssst,....Israel is a Socialist Democracy, further to the left of the lefties in America. Horrors!!
Mitt the Twit love how it just rolls off the tongue. Repos use to hate the french now it is the Brits. Forward Forward Forward.
No not the British,,, just the pretend British that we have...
The 'PRETEND BRITISH' ?? You mean the ones that gave an 11 minute tribute to England's Health Care in the London Olympics opening ceremony, British?
obama hates Israel and they know it....he signed this because he had no choice in the matter....this scum bag(obama) does nothing that don't benefit him politically...nothing.
obama hates Israel and we all know it...he signed this because he had no choice..and, always remember thisMarxist does nothing that don't benefit him politically....nothing....prove me wrong!
BZZZT, WRONG, TRY AGAIN REPUBLITARD. ALL THIS SHOWS IS YOUR UTTER DISREGARD FOR THE TRUTH WHICH HAS BECOME THE REPUBLITARD WAY SINCE OBAMA GOT ELECTED. KEEP ON LYING THOUGH, IT IS QUITE ENTERTAINING.
DE: Go read a piece of literature (book) titled: OBAMA NATION by Dr.J. R. Corsi, Ph. D. HARVARD Univ. PLEASE pay particular attention the 600 scrupulously sourced footnotes. Pay particular attention to OnoBAMA's "collection" of "heroes" he pals with while IN CHICAGO politics...some of his "pals" bombed/terrorized OUR OWN country. Hmmm...but as a "republitard" I'm NOT seeing something I need to see in Barry?
ps: You CAN read, right?
"HERE, HERE, Jerry!"
ps: How are the kids? (lol...couldn't resist)
You don't know nothing. don't even try.
It takes two to dance. This particular PM of Israel has his own agenda. We all know it.
America always support Israel, it is a divine calling, not politics.
The Israeli PM SHOULD have his own agenda. After all it isi HIS country that missles and rockets rain down on! It is HIS country that those around him want off the planet! Oh Yeah, He needs his own agenda. Yet you make it sound like a bad thing! How is that?
Come on, Steveo,.... basically Obama's economic and other sanctions are the same thing Mitt is putting forth,..so, where's the beef?
I did take issue when Bibi addressed our Congress and dissed my country when he was here the last time. Seriously, WTF?? I don't care if he has issues – we all do – some of them are disagreements with the way we keep getting dragged into things I believe can be resolved. We are living in the same world as others who have guns and missiles pointed at them and they are just as scared as Israel is.
Cynthia L. Come on!
The Mexico president speaks to Congress, disses our immgration laws and get a standing ovation from the Dems!
* Mexican president or president of Mexico!
A lot more Mexicans are dying than Israelis from 'our' policies. Mexico is in OUR HEMISPHERE! In fact, we share a border and, we share a common history with states such as California, Nevada, Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico and Texas sharing generations of families between the two of us. We need to be better neighbors and partners to each other. If you ever follow any of the posts about Mexico – they are usually derided in an a most racist way – unless of course you guys pounce on the one thing you pretend to care about – Fast and Furious – but then turn your hearts hard when the subject of Gun Sales gets too prickly.
Israel has a good friend in the U.S. but, we have fallen short in regards to our southern neighbor.
President Obama is just that the "PRESIDENT" and he must continue the work he was elected to do. What? is he suppose to take a time out, because swiss mitt is on "tour"?
Ho converted to fund raising several lmonths ago... before Mitt went overseas... He has done little to encourage the economy or jobs during this time... Letsface it this presidency is for sale to the biggest war chest.
Mitt spent $42 Million of his own money on his LAST Presidental War Chest. This year he has personally spent $150,000.00 of his own money to run. Wouldn't it be enlightening to see EVERYONES DONORS and HOW MUCH THEY ARE BUYING OUR ELECTIONS FOR??
Did Obama try to upstage Romney on Israel?
"HE" would NEVER do that !!!
Mr. Presedint... Mr. Presedint... !!!!!
He's in the air... In the air....
Quick !!! Sign this... !!!
"WE" Need to PANDER to the Jew Community !!!
so, who to vote for mutt or jeff
OBAMA UPSTAGED HIS OWN FAMILY IN HIS ENDEAVORS TO DESTROY THIS COUNTRY. ITS JUST WHAT HE DOES
AND ENJOYS SO MUCH. YOU CAN NOT LIVE ON THE EDGE AS HE DOES WITHOUT HAVING TO PAY THE PIPER.
JUSTICE FOR ALL INCLUDES THOSE IN HIGH PLACES AS WELL AS ALL OF US LOW LIFES THAT DO THE WORK OF
OUR COUNTRY. WE ARE "LITTLE PEOPLE",YET WE HAVE A VOICE LOUDER THAN THE ELITE THAT DICTATE FROM
THE OVAL OFFICE. THAT IS JUST THE WAY IT IS,
collect yourself. crying like a wolf does not carry you too far for any reason.
Should this president not taken out Bin Laden, you still under the black cloud of attack.
This country offers much more than just war. You wake up smell the roses around you.
The country is blessed all the time.
HAVE A NICE DAY MR. PRESIDENT. ENJOY OUR DISCONTENT. WE LOVE OUR COUNTRY,WHY DO YOU HATE IT SO
MUCH. YOU NEED TO SEEK PROFESSIONAL HELP. A GOOD SHRINK WOULD DO WONDERS FOR YOUR SICKNESS.
WAKE UP AND SMELL THE ROSES IN YOUR GARDEN.DO SOMETHING FOR YOUR COUNTRY FOR A CHANGE SAVE
THIS NATION FROM YOUR DEMENTED PLANS OF RUINATION.-------- "GOD BLESS AMERICA."
Brother, you sound like someone who needs to take a vacation. Take a hike, go to the beach, splash in a pool, read a good book, hug the people you love – it works wonders. There is always gonna be challenges for our country to face, but, we still live in a wonderful nation. Have faith in your fellows. We are gonna be fine. I promise.
Try again Cynthia.... His words are more commonly heard than are yours..
Sorry that you don't think we still live in a wonderful country, Bill. Not many people I know have given up on the rest of us. Just because you post every other comment here doesn't mean you are most commonly heard either.
It is a great place... but not as you see it... In you world there are only progressives.. In mine there is room enough for both of us... that is why I write without anger... thats right I do... I will point out what I precieve to be short commings and b;atant un truths... Ifyou choose to think of that as anger .. that is your decision... and it appears to make you angrier...
you are so sick... you need help my friend
VOTE nOBAMA or is it BARRY? (Why can Barry NOT use his grade school name?)
...how can you demNOcrates VOTE for a non-truthful person...twice?? "Where is the 'CHANGE' "? Oh yeah nothing to see here!
FORWARD (LOL) to what? More of the same "CHANGE"? That's all I have now is,"...change in my pocket." Oh, and oNObamacare...really?
Obama just made an a55 out of himself even more.
It's Sunday and Obama lies.
Obama can't help it. He upstages Romney in every area at all times. (except in out sourcing jobs there Mitt reigns supreme)
You DO realize we are funding a company in FINLAND to build high end electric sports car, right? You DO reailize our Job Czar is moving a plant from Wisconsin to China, right?
Can you believe it???.....NASCAR GETS TAX SUBSIDES!!!
farmers, oil companies, and foriegn companies do as well... whats your point?
OMG, Bill!! You made me spit my coffee all over my monitor with that retort!!!!.....Truth lives, finding it's way out of the mouths of the clueless!
FACT – Out of the 10 MOST RICH companies in the world – 7 ARE OIL COMPANIES! And, they tell us they need subsides from the American people (?) just to STICK US AT THE PUMP WHENEVER THEY WANT!
The point of this article is so lame. Since when has the President of the United States and the State Department ever had to schedule its official business around the travels or points a non-elected candidate is making. Ridiculous CNN – really!
jill, you are right, But this president has only one way to hold onto his job. which makes it a story. not because the bill was signed, but the complete reagranging of Obama's published schedule to sign the bill when and how he did. Mr Obama did exactly what you said he shouldn't do rearrange his schedule around Mr. Romney's. that is the story. that is how scared he is about possibly loosing his paid vacations and golfing trips.
CNN, really, is this the best you can do? Why all the articles favoring Mitt the Twit Romney, and all of the articles attacking Obama? Obama is the President of the United States, and he doesn't have to upstage anyone.
Where is the analysis about Romney and his handler's (er, large donors) signaling to Big Oil that he would support an attack by Israel on Iran, a country that has done nothing to them. Oh wait, Iran has Oil, and Big Oil wants the US government to have a military presence in the Middle East to keep the money flowing. And the US has to pay bribes (I mean, Aid) to the rulers in those countries.
And by the way, if you tell everyone you had a secret meeting, then it is no longer a secret meeting! Sheesh.
"Obama is the President of the United States, and he doesn't have to upstage anyone". OK, so why did he try to do so?
if obama can reagrange his entire schedule for a bill signing, why can;t he rearange his schdule to meet with his own jobs councle. oops trying to upstage romney is more important than that?
mmm, Wayniepoo, and what brilliant insights do you have that make you qualified to assume that he "tried to do so?" Are you privy to the schedule of the white house and to just how much influence he has with Congress' timing of bills? If you have paid even a nitwit's amount of attention the last two years, you would know that his interests and priorities are hardly governing what the House does and have only limited influence in the filibustering Senate. So.....you are either a white house insider or an idiot. I suspect it's the latter.
Simmer down, Francis.
And the only reason Mitt the Twit is popular among the Robber Barrons is that he has proven adept at siphoning money out of companies. So, they are hoping to see him continue to use his "business experience" to siphon money out of the government, in the form of private contracts to for-profit companies. That is all.
Well Gandalf, you say Romeny siphons money out of businesses, it is better then siphoning out of the innocent tax payer. One point Obama took chances with our money and LOST, Romeny invested his own money and WON. Dont be jealous of success it is UNAMERICAN find your own.
Romney invested someone else's money. He didn't invest his own money. Just google it out and read a little bit.
Obama has invested in the success of American companies when they were on the verge of bankruptcy to save the auto industry, and the banking industry and has invested for the future in solar power. While one of the solar power companies failed, that does not make the program a failure. Taking cash out of a company and loading it up with debt on purpose so it fails makes Romney a failure.
And you think my criiticsm of Romney is rooted in jealousy because he has $100 million in an 401(k) (which cannot be done legally)? I think he's an amoral socialpath and a crook - that is why I don't like him. And thinking that does not make me unAmerican. If you think jealousy is un-American, you think giving no-bid multi-billion dollar contracts to your politicial friends is un-American? Or is that the American Way?
I would never want to be in Romney's shoes, nor would I ever stoop to the depths he has done for money. And financially, I am quite successful already. But I did honestly and no one was harmed by any of my financial ventures.
WE invested as it was OUR money! WE just didn't have a say as to where OUR money went!
Oh yes ... companies like Solyndra!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Where is change,hope. No more. Obama's lovers, let's admit,that community organizer must be community organizer, but not PRESIDENT of USA>
Congress passes legislation, remember? And the country is better off under Obama than under Bush II.
I disagree.... but it is hard to do that with a fictional character
Exactly HOW is the country better off under Obama? The deficet has increased by 50% (more than under any other president in history). Obama lied to us about Health care (it's not a tax), Gitmo is still open, taxes have gone up and the ecopnomy is worse than ever. Seems like Obama has failed to me.
Huh, I thought you were Gandalf tha Gay.
You guys mean Mitt THE nitwitt Mitt THE twitt is funny...
Was hè there to give Israël à warming up for an attack on Iran?
I hold my breath with these elections i hope Obama wins.
Obama has everyone here "conned" You all beleive everything is sad great, and that everything is gonna be allright. Sure it is ....................IF YOUR A TOTAL MORON ! Some of you very intelligent people need to look at the country as it presently stands. Poverty in this country is approaching levels not seen since the 1960`s. Really? Were going in the right direction? Secretary of State was directly responsable for the "outsourcing" of jobs. Walmart outsourves more than anybody, and I beleive that 85% of their imports are from China. Who do you think sat on their hands and said nothing while this was going on? And you President, talks about outsourcing? Gte a "clue" guy`s !!
President Obama is the PRESIDENT. He doe not "upstage" anyone, he is the stage. mighty mitt might be trying desperately to pander to potential Jewish voters, he may be desperately trying to appear even a little presidential in his debacle abroad, but it is he who is intruding on the President's stage, not vice versa.
Mighty mitt looks like Clark W Griswold in Europe. However, he straps dogs and not decesased relatives to the roof. The deceased relatives are for baptizing in willard's world.
Why all the hatred from the Liberals here? If this is what the Democrats have become I want no part of it.
In the eyes of some, it doesn't make a difference what the President does or doesn't do, it will never be right, according to them.
And for others its never wrong, he's infallible.
This is a guy who got 3 of his own party's candidates running against him kicked off the ballot....his own people. So, what do you think? He clearly has no rules as to how far he will go to win. The Cubs should sign him with competitive drive like his. If they didn't win the series, he would just have them all droned while driving to the off-season.
@ Gandalf the white. Really....... better off under Obumer than Bush...really. Well let's see.....gas was $1.68 in east TN......only 11 million people were out of work, now 40 to 44 million are...... 4 trillion in dept, now 16 trillion......a dismantled military w/ crappy moral.......the rest of the world respected use, now....it's a joke. That's change you can have ... not me. Obumer is creating only 80,000 jobs per month...when 250,000 is needed just to keep up w/ people entering the work force. Just for unemployment to remain unchanged. That's why Obumer number's don't add up. Israel know's a Marxist when they see one..... right Obumer.
@ Gandalf the white. "Saved the auto industry" .... really! What a idiot! The only thing Obumer did was to save and protect union jobs. GM or Dodge would have never gone anywhere. They would have filed...cleaned up their dept....restructured.....ditched the worthless unions..... and built cars. This would cost the tax payer's ( hich I'm sure your not one) a lot less money than 50 billion. By reading your leftist rants... it's clear you don't read much. Cool-aid!
When you're scared of losing your job, you'll do whatever you can to try and keep it. Even when it means making of fool of yourself like Obama does with his constant, very obvious vote pandering. Oh well, it's not like it will do him any good, we all know exactly what he's doing.
Bloomberg news agency is reporting consumer confidence rose- upbeat about job prospects, causing stocks to edge into positive territory with USA Today reporting that the Home Price Index gains in the last year in more than half of major U.S. cities – a milestone in the historic housing collaspe of 2007 – 2009 recession.
Unfortunately "We the people" have no control over what our elected officials are doing in Washington We have allowed them to shut us out. Our country is controlled by Greed on both sides of the aisle. The system is broke. The two party system has failed. Until we can have an honest independent party of average hard working Americans with common sense in control we will continue down the road of demise. What happened to comprimise for the good of the country. What happened to honest debate about the issues without attacks of one's character. Both Obama/Romney will not fix these problems. We the people need to kick the money out of Washington that prevents us from truly finding common ground to address the magnitude of our problems. The two party system thrives on "Divide and Conquer". Debate but dont Attack. Our founding fathers are rolling in their graves.
Congress passes a bill by a wide bi-partisan majority. So is Obama supposed to delay signing it because he's afraid that the rightwads will accuse him of "trying to upstage" the not-yet-nominated GOP ex-governor's globetrotting trip? Fie. They'd scream bloody murder and decry his efforts if he came up with a cure for cancer and found an eternal source of unlimited, clean energy. Only the uneducated even listen to them anymore.
You Yanks make the entire world laugh. Your political discourse is akin to a pair of male baboons vying for dominance.
Try laughing at yourself, Chris,.....you ain't perfect. Although, we are a funny bunch, I will give you that.
My answer, No the President did not try to upstage Mitt. The media is just trying to create more discord by planting bad seeds.
Well once again Romney screwed up on the road further embarrasing the U.S. abroad . He almost started WW 3
with the Palestinians while in Israel . The Israeli Gov. futher stated that ties were never better between the
Obama Admin. and Israel . So Romney´s once again lying wjhen he says that ties between the U.S. and Israel are bad .
I´m sorry Mr. Romney Your no Barrack Obama but you are more like "W" Bush and we know how horrible
he was as president .
WW3? Was it the throw rock that was heard around the world? Really?
Abe Lincoln , one of my favorite Republicans, once said, "It is better to remain silent and risk being thought a fool, than open your mouth and remove all doubt."
@Cynthia L. Surely you are addressing this to W.G, who stated Romney was starting WW3! SURELY!
My reply was to Mitt's comment. Although, WWIII could be started over something sillier than comparing one country's success over that of it's neighbors in that part of the world. This is one nutty-powder keg of a region.
My bad! The region is a powder keg! I apologize for the misunderstanding!
Romney told the truth....sadly many of you aren't used to the TRUTH...damnfools!
Which one is the truth? The Flip or the Flop??
@Charlotte.... ahh...YES! Delay signing. One ot two day's ... that's all. Mr Bush would have never done that to Obumer in 2008. Well that's class for yeah... you Lib's have no idea what that is. Do you or your Lackey Troop (Lib's) realize that the Obumer made the Prime Minister take the "back door" out of the White House while they visited. How low is that. Liberal's, Marxist and Europe's Socialist have despised the Israeli's for decades now.... no secret. The Israeli's are well aware of this fact. I've trained w/ Israeli soldiers.....and they are well aware. Obumer's approval rating in Israel is 3%. WOW! The rest of the world know they are dealing w/ a child. France, England and Germany's Merkel have crossed words w/ the Loser In Chief. No body has respect for this complete utter loser.
obama saved GM...are you serious? 63% of GMs employees are overseas...and the number overseas is growning...and now for GEs numbers...ah well you get the picture. You libs are drinking obama cool-aid and it's gona get you...fools.
I've been surfing on-line more than 3 hours today, yet I by no means discovered any interesting article like yours. It's beautiful price enough for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made just right content material as you probably did, the internet can be a lot more helpful than ever before.
