“Hmm, so the President is in " recess " when he goes " all the time " on vacations. He doesn't get daily briefings, make any desissioins on important matters, if a nuke falls on D.C. he's not on call to handle it? Being a politician and handling business of this country is a 24/7/365 agenda. Congressmen and Senators may not be in D.C. but that does not mean they are not attending business in their states with or for the people that elected them.”

“Do you complain during every administration when the President goes on vacation or just when they have a (D) next to their names?
Bush for instance went on far more vacations... Conservatives never complained about that.”
“Tell you what, hold that thought " poster boys for narrow-minded uneducated too dumb to make a living without shooting people. " and tell some of them that when they come home. And after you're through spitting you teeth out you'll feel much better... just think how safe you'd be with out those " poster boys for narrow-minded uneducated too dumb to make a living without shooting people."”
“These bleeding heart liberals would probably tried CPR on them instead..War is hell, no one understands what these troops go through day after day over there. What do you think the Taliban would have done to ANY of those troops in the video had the rolls been reversed. Which is worse, being peed on or having your head removed from your body and sat on your chest for a video trophy? Like you said, not the best move posting it on Youtube, but what the hell, like I said it's a lot less than the Taliban would have done to them.”
“Just curious how much did you make off your mom when you dumped her in the nursing home for someone else to take care of. Just remember some day your kids may do the same to you. Have a great day :o)”

“I think my friend that Obama would go running to Eric Holder to find some way to " round up " everyone that just said " NO " on sedition charges. Then under his new NDAA bill put them all in government camp Gitmo's. These are dangerous times we are living.

“nmsidewinder....I love Guantanamo, it is part of my country of birth and thru my business I visited it several times. Trust me is paradise. You know, there is a time in your life that you get tired of running. The communist killed most of my family, both in Spain, and then in Cuba...so I am ready!”
“What a difference, Obama makes a point to give speeches at High Schools (because they aren't adults and don't understand his lies) and Santorum met with a packed room of voters and reporters at the Rockingham County Nursing Home (Adults that have been down the path of life and can spot a fraud when they see it). Congress is supposed to represent the American People, with Obama by passing it, he is in so many words telling the American people kiss my patootie, I'm going to do what I want anyway.”
Penelope Pappas Sells on Jan 5, 2012 at 14:27:26
“Yes, Congress is SUPPOSED to represent the American people but this do-nothing congress has shown that they are puppets.....it has shown its true intention ....to sink the nation if need be to make sure this president doesn't get credit for anything that benefits the constituents....... because it might help him get a 2nd term. Their leaders are arrogant enough to have publicly acknowledged as much. .Their only interest is more for themselves & their masters.. Obama has exercised an option that past presidents including GW Bush, have exercised many times more often... and only after Repubs in Congress have repeatedly stated they have no problems with this appointee .... they just don't like consumer protection laws already in place.”

“Teens have way more common sense than you want to give them credit for.
Nursing homes, on the other hand, are largely the deaf and dementia segment of seniors. Nobody goes to a nursing home until they can't take care of themselves anymore.”
littlered43 on Jan 5, 2012 at 10:33:24
“But you probably didn't have a problem with all the other Presidents making recess appointments, right?
Your argument about Obama speaking to high school students loses a lot of it's punch when you compare it it Santorum speaking to patients at a nursing home. "Adults that have been down the path of life and can spot a fraud when they see it". Are you aware he was speaking to Alzheimer's patients?”

High school auditoriums are large places in small communities where people can gather.
You realize that grown-ups attend, right?”
ceeenbee on Jan 5, 2012 at 10:30:43
“Get off it.
Last 3 repub administrations - 491 recess appointments
Last 2 dem administrations - 168
If anything I think Obama is a slacker for being so far behind. If he were to be graded at one of those schools you talk about he should get an "unsatisfactory" for lack of initiative.”
RainbowTeacher on Jan 5, 2012 at 10:27:14
“I see - the President goes to visit the future of our country and Santorum goes to the old folks home where he might find those who share his ancient, out of touch views.”

“Youthink that is why Obama campaigns at a high school? 2 things you seem to be ignoring...those high school kids are future voters. and Second....a high school gym is larger than a nursing home common room. Yawn....next this one was too easy....”
“Cindy Sheehan is just another has been " boob " (not refering to body parts here).
If Cindy hasn't paid taxes in 7 years and indeed owes taxes, the IRS will catch up with her and she will disappear out of the lime light while she serves time at Club Fed (Income tax evasion is still a punishable crime with jail time). I worked with a bunch of idiots one time that thought they'd found a loop hole to get out of paying federal income taxes. The years went by and then one day they all came to work as usual, crying the " blues " about how the IRS had paid them a visit for back taxes. Needless to say they were putting up their Ski boats, RV's and motor homes, time share condos,and even selling their custom built houses to try and dig up the money for their back taxes. Just like the old addages says: There is only three things you have to do in life. Be born, pay taxes, and die. So Cindy, live it up becasue I'm sure the IRS knows about you and just waiting for the right moment to nail your hide. (IRS:Pay me now, or you'll pay me later with interest) Have a good day.”
“OWS is just going to fade away just like the protesters of the 60's. They'll retire to smoking dope and swapping lies about the " good old days ". I am disappointed that they haven't tried to levitate the Pentagon yet. Sooner or later they will all come to their senses and crawl back under what ever rock they came from. I have to admit the 60's did at least produce Wood Stock and some fine music and musicians. OWS is just another sick joke on society that will produce nothing.”

“"OWS is just going to fade away just like the protesters of the 60's."
How ig.norant does an American have to be to fail to understand the profound impact the 60s had on America? I hope you're a teen-ager, because it's just too depressing to think than an adult could be this ignorant of their own country's history. The 60s were before my time, but I definitely understand what the protests changed.”

“Horse feathers...if these so called minorities would stop selling dope and pimping thier sisters in gangs and go to school, get an education, then they can gets jobs. Anyone can better themselves IF they have the desire to. Many would rather sit and collect government hand outs while they sell drugs instead of working for a living. Tired of hearing this stuff.”
“We have satellites that watch us from above, GPS in our cell phones (that they can track us with), the FBI can stick a GPS tracker on your car without your knowledge, and we have RFID chips in the things we buy so they know what we eat, drink, and wipe with. Soon to come if you are not on it now is the " smart grid " it knows when you are home using electricity and can monitor the appliances you use. We even have government run " tattle " web sites you can report your fellow citizens. We have the 1st amendment but yet they tell us what is or isn't " politically correct " when we speak. We have a constitutional right to due process of the law (unless they deem you a terrorist with a U.S. citizenship, then they can take you out with a drone). We have a 1st lady telling us what we should eat but yet she can stuff french fries in her face all day. Welcome to 1984 . And you want bigger government.. no thank you.”
“This comes as no surprize to me after Eric Holder and Obama autorized the murder of a U.S. citizen suspected ( I use suspected because the person had NO DUE PROCESS OF THE LAW ) terrorist Al Awalaki. I agree this guy was a bottom of the pond scum sucker, but a U.S. citizen none the less.
To assisnate/murder ANY U.S. citizen with out due process of the law ( a trial ) lays the ground work for ANY U.S. citizen to face the same fate should our government deem us a threat of any kind.
Now they can lock you up for as long as they like without a trial. What's next people?”
“I don't understand this woman. Ginger White comes out telling every one that she's been having an on going affair with Cain for 13 years, why all of a sudden come out with it? Unless she's been given a little incentive to do so, like some money ? In this day and age a lot of people could care less how many "affairs" someone has that's running for a political office ( I am not one of them. If you can't keep junior in your pants we don't need another Bill Clinton for president). It just seems strange that all of a sudden all these women come out of the woodwork accusing Herman Cain of sexual harassment or having an affair with him after so many years have gone by. This is down and dirty politics in it's truest from.
Of course we can't prove that someone is behind all this besides the women involved can we?”
Voivode Vlad on Dec 3, 2011 at 08:06:16
“She says it is because of how Herman and his campaign were treating the women who had made the sexual harrassment claims. If that is the reason, I can understand. Nothing will make a person turn on another faster than finding out what a creep that person really is.”

“hmm just a thought but he called it off when he decided to run...2 earlier ones made their claims years ago and recieved a settlement so the company must have thought there was a little something to it to pay to make it go away...the other one well it could have him been lying about the 2 claims of harrassment she felt she would come forward...there are lots of possibities! this happens when anyone runs for office the dirty laundry will come out! no but how many married people do you know has friends of the opposite sex they lend money to and recieve 3am calls from and their spouse doesnt know them...in 13 years your spouse never met your friend no it doesnt prove anything for certain but really no one has that much stink follow them unless they have been running through some piles of s**t”

“That's a stupid question. Of course they come out when he becomes important, a frontrunner in the GOP primaries, and possibly the next US president! Why in the hell would they come out when he was a nobody? Nobody cared about him then, except for his employer who had to pay out settlements for him, obviously.
I really don't get these questions of "why now?"! Seems pretty obvious why now, the man's running for president of the free world, dammit!”
