“Who started that war in Afghanistan? Oh yeah, thats right, a republican administration. Bad foreign policy leads to successors having to make tough, but responsible choices about how to clean up the messes that their predecessors got them into. It ain't so bipartisan to me.”

“If President Obama were so concerned about their being less war, given how US troops remaining inflame tensions, lead to terrorist attacks on US interests, not to mention a majority of Americans thinking the troops should come home, he'd be drawing back the troops. But he hasn't. He's continued to send MORE TROOPS, DOING THE SAME THING. So yes, bad foreign policy IS BIPARTISAN. ”

“More war was not the responsible choice; it was just the easier one”
“Of course they want more wars, who do you think support the republican party? Big business - and some of the biggest businesses around are the ones that contract with the federal government to make big, expensive weapon systems. They have been playing this game since the end of WW2 - get in bed with the republican party, buy a few elections for them, keep your lobbiests busy pounding the pavement and watch your profits soar. They create conflict to justify the weapons (or simply the impression of the threat of global conflict)The republicans in the debates have made a point of trying to appear as though they are the biggest, baddest saber-rattlers around to win the nomination. They use this as a SELLING POINT to try to market themselves to their base. Remember McCain's "I'd bomb Iran" statments that helped cost him the last election? Holy cow people. This isnt a commentator being way off base, this is a commentator stating something that he assumed everybody already knows as a fact!”
“I cannot stand this man. He is arrogant, presumptive, sexist, divisive, bigoted and blinded by religious fundamentalism. He represents the worst things about my religion - that is, he is leading the charge for the people who give my own religion a bad name. Want to know the real reason he'd never serve under Romney? Romney is a devout Mormon and I bet he has some pretty strong attitudes about Mormonism. I wouldn't be shocked if this has anything to do with that. The man needs to wake up and realize that America doesn't like people like him. He divides people, rather than bring them together and lead them.”

“Wow, what a post. Every word of it rings true for me. These guys not only fail to understand the reason for separation of church & state; they want to end it immediately.
Thank you. F&F.”
“Health care reform for all Americans, economy is in way better shape than it was when he took office - and he did it in spite the House that turned against him. Osama bin Laden is no more, and now, my neighbor's kid won't get deported and sent to a country that they have never been to nor do they speak the language. Sounds pretty good to me.”

“He watched the killing of his muslim brother on TV, and then tried to claim the credit forthat. Even the navy seals involved dressed him down in so many words claiming that. Our military, not his, did the job. Has he ever put on a uniform and served his country. Man please, he is a joke. Now he has gone against the congress of the United States, who voted down the measure that the just happened to approve before the election, ref the illegals, yes ILLEGALS. You say the economy is in better shape. Do you work? Or do you get your entitlement and free cell phone too. Get real.”
“That could be becuase HIS predecessor was one of the worst we have had in a very long time and left him with a really wonderful situation to clean up. We are still recovering from the eight years Dubbaya spent in office. BTW, a LOT more money was spent under Bush (thats a fact, go look it up), so don't start the "Obama wastes out tax dollars on expensive white house dinners and flights on AF1" garbage.”

“No--I'm upset that the taxpayer has had to pay for all their lavish vacations for the past 3 years, that he has taken billions of our tax dollars and given it to green energy companies of his contributors, or how about the tax payer paying for the upkeep of his mother-in-law? It does cost the struggling taxpayer for her doctors, chefs, limos, hairdessers, designer clothes, etc. She has no money so wondering if the taxpayer is also paying her a salary. I believe there has been a lot of waste of tax dollars. He was a millionaire when he entered the WH and he is still a millionaire so don't know how much of his $4 Million X-mas vacation he paid for? Connect the dots.”

“When you hear Obama complain about what he inherited just remember that the Dems were in full control of Congress during the last two years of the Bush administration. They gained the majority in 2007--isn't that when unemployment rates began to rise? and wasn't that when Barney Frank said Fannie and Freddie were in great shape? the employment rate in 2006 was 5.7% before the Dems gained control of the House and the Senate.”

“You do mean congress don't you. They are ressponsible for the debt according to this man in office. They were the majority during the financial crisis and Barney testified that FM and FM were doing just fine when GW was constantly telling them they were going to crash and needed to be reigned in. NP passed 38 new speding bills costing billions during that same time. Congress authorized the wars and their funding on a bipartisan vote. Hypocrite is the nicest thing I would say about you.”
“So essentially, Mr. Romney does what he ALWAYS DOES and said NOTHING. He refuses to commit one way or another, but will sieze any opportunity to be critical of anything his opponent does (in such a way as to not give us any clue as to how he actually feels about it or what action he would have taken in its place).What a safe tactic. It allows him to remain Mr. ETCH-A-SKETCH and change his stance when it is convenient - or depending on what state he happens to be campaigning in at the time and what majority he is trying to win over (extreme conservatives or moderate liberals, depending) I can't STAND this guy.”

“I can understand your strong resentment towards Mitt Romney, as its just like mine, except mine is towards our admittedly Muslim President. He will stop at nothing to get his way,and I truly believe he honestly believe he is to not be doubted or questioned, and that he has all the answers. Can't see where he has done much toward our betterment. Voting Romney here, who I truly believe is the lesser of the two evils.”
“They need to take notes from Fox news Chief Roger Ailes. Only hire people who are "hot" or "controversial". It doesnt matter WHAT we say as long as it riles up the lefty, commie pinkos and promotes the network. Its a formula for "success" apparently. If you consider it a success to have the highest ratings of the three (Fox, MSNBC and CNN)...of course you have not not mind having that success at the expense of your journalistic integrity, but as Roger says "who cares?" right?”
“Tell us, great intelligent one, what logic would that be that is so flawed? The logic where you compare two numbers and can see that the one which is seven times larger probably means that it has far more viewers?”

“yes it does.... you just have to buy the right people... The dems BUY votes by giving freebies to minorities and illegals... welfare, food stamps, free education to illegals, and creating programs to keep people poor.... it is all about money.”
When I first heard that Trump was going to support "his boy" Romney, I thought. Let's see how long it takes for Mitt to disavow any connection to "The Donald" Apparently not long. The "distancing" has already started. Its damage by association - a bit like having a decent neighbor, but your opinion of them goes down because of their obnoxious, yappy dog that barks all the time.”
“He didn't win the election solely on the fact that hes a pot legalization supporter...he won it because people are tired of GOP bull**** and want a positive alternative to the top 1% running the nation like an oligarchy.”

“Hey everybody! Another person who touts the lib line without reading the article.
A Democratic party primary now equates to the GOP as well!
“Wow, typical money hungry Republican 1%-er mentality. "I can buy the White House AND congress in 2012". These unethical, immoral, greedy, selfish, egotists are willing to spend a billion (THAT'S "BILLION" WITH A "B" FOLKS) on getting their guy to the White House and not willing to lift a FINGER or spend a PENNY to assist people in real need. They are only concerned with one thing: Profits for their own commercial interests.
When that kind of money is spent, who do you think holds the loyalty of those elected? The constituents/the people...or perhaps the corporate interests that paid for their election? Herein lies the inherent problem with the obtuse Mitt Romney notion that "Corporations are people too"...THINK PEOPLE. Don't allow these people to keep you as sheep. Stop supporting the top 1%. They will simply continue to exploit you and your children for another four years. So by all means keep electing them if this is what you want.
Vote Democrat in 2012 if you want a government that works for you...”
